Fresh update on "charlotte" discussed on The Philosopher's Zone

"Welcome to the philosopher's zone. This is David Rutledge, and this week we're taking what I find to be just a fascinating philosophical perspective on music and sound. Doing the research for this conversation has been a revelation to me. I love music. I've been involved in making music and various kinds of sound for most of my life. But on the few occasions when I've dipped my toe into the water of music, philosophy, the experience has sent me scurrying back to the pure aesthetic encounter in a big hurry. I've always felt that it's a little bit like what happens when people try to have serious discussions about comedy. It just sort of leeches all the fun out of it. But my guess this week has blown that prejudice completely out of the water and I'm very grateful to her for that. Her name is Robin James. She's an associate Professor of philosophy at the university of North Carolina in Charlotte, North Carolina. She's co editor of the journal of popular music studies, and she's the author of a number of books, the most recent of which is the sonic episteme, acoustic resonance, neoliberalism, and biopolitics, a lot to talk about there. Robin, welcome to the program. Thanks so much for having me on. And thanks for your kind words about my work. I want to begin by getting you to introduce yourself really by cluing us into the kind of work that you're doing. Because when philosophy turns its attention to music, is traditionally a sort of high culture exercise, questions about what constitutes music and the nature of music. These are often explored with reference to an established canon of serious music, quote unquote. So broadly speaking, what sort of philosophical work are you doing with pop music? Or maybe I should ask, what kinds of philosophical questions does pop raise for you? I would say my philosophical background is primarily in continental feminism. So I came to pop music from that perspective. Thinking, you know, this is when I was dissertation in the mid 2000s, right? And at that time, I really saw a connection between the marginalization of women and the degradation of femininity in the marginalization of women and the degradation of the stereotypically feminine characteristics of pop music. And a couple years later that would critics would know this sort of reevaluation of what is traditionally denigrated in pop music as optimism, right? So in the same way that you've seen sort of the rise of popular feminism in the last two decades, we've also seen the rise of optimism, right? The sort of revaluing what is traditionally been devalued as too feminine. So that's kind of what drew me to pop music, but what I found valuable about pop music is I have a background..

Arm the Teachers!

"The audacity of people to say teachers should be armed. There are already trying to teach and be babysitters and be counselors and all sorts of things and you want them now to be sharpshooters and I mean having a teacher, or are they supposed to holster the weapon and have it on safety and have it ready to go at all times? I mean, what are they supposed to do? And I think they should maybe have big rifles that have on their shoulder as they're running on the blackboard so that it's very clear to the kids that they live in an atmosphere of total violence and unpredictability. I mean, that is one of the craziest ideas I have ever heard around the school shooting stuff. And we can't. My mother was a teacher. The idea of Charlotte with a side arm is so bizarre. I mean, I don't know. I mean, maybe we should just have been doing that. Might as well just arm the

Arthur Milikh Offers Analysis of the Current Political Landscape

"Who is the executive director at the center for the American way of life at the Claremont institute, Arthur, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you very much, Charlotte. So Arthur, we've been kind of framing the conversation, if you will, right now, around how a majority of the political discourse is around things that are patently insane. The woke, if you will. And that there needs to be kind of a re centering around team reality, and that only conservatives can help make that consolidation possible. What are your thoughts? Well, I think that's true. But, you know, when you look at some of the polling, some of which is honest, I suspect, and you see that there's actually strikingly little support for a lot of these very radical left wing ideologies. And then you wonder, well, how on earth is it that these remain the center conversations of the nation, if they're so little public support? And then you begin to think through how much money and institutional support there is for these causes. And the immense disproportion in power. On the left versus the right. And then you start seeing how many conservatives over the last generation have been snoozing at the wheel. They've been fighting on some very irrelevant issues, one kind of trick that I like to think about is if you implemented the full agenda of many of the think tanks on the mainstream right. Nothing would change about America. A lot of things. It would all be a total domination of the left institutions. And so what we have not thought through is trying to win back territory in real ways. Trying to repeal the immense power of those institutions. We like to do lawsuits. That's fine. But when we lose in the courts, we just say, oh shucks, you know, we'll try again. We'll try to do the same thing again. Whereas when you look at the immense as I keep saying institutional power of the left, they own the universities, which we refuse to defund. They own a lot of K12. These are American tax dollars that are being used against patriotic Americans. It's an astonishing thing. And nobody ever really does anything about it. It's a really interesting

Making the Case for Heaven with Lee Strobel

"A few books out there that really change your life and change the way you view things. And I remember where I was when I first heard about this book and then I saw the movie and I just give it out to everyone that has questions about the Bible and about their place in the world and the author really his story resonated with me because we're both from the same place the suburbs of Chicago and the book is the case for Christ that's phenomenal and then there was kind of a sequel book, the case for heaven, which is now coming out as a movie. So I'm super thrilled and honored to have with us the author and kind of the mastermind behind it all. Lee's struggle. Lee, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Oh, thanks so much, Charlotte. I appreciate the opportunity. I didn't know you were from suburban Chicago. Where'd you grow up? Wheeling and went to willow creek. Come on. And as well as harvest Bible chapel. So we kind of is from the same area. Oh my goodness, I grew up in Arlington Heights, went to prospect high school and I went to my house. So awesome. At the same time, the same type of place. So yeah, it's a great, great honor to lead. Tell us about the movie that's coming out. Well, it's based on my book, the case for heaven, which was inspired by an incident that happened to me ten years ago when I almost died. My wife found me unconscious, calling the ambulance. I woke up in the emergency room and the doctor looked down at me and said, one step away from a coma two steps away from dying. And so I there between life and death for quite a while so the doctors were able to save my life. And this is a very clarifying experience for me. When you get in that kind of position, you really want to know for sure what happens when you close your eyes for the last time in this world. And so I'm a Christian. I believe what the Bible teaches, but I've also got a skeptical gear. You know, my background's in journalism and law. So I tend to be a bit skeptical. So I decided to investigate what is the evidence both inside and outside the Bible that supports the idea that there is an afterlife that we continue to live on. Now that resulted in my book, the case for heaven and then we produced a documentary based on that book is going to be in movie theaters coast to coast for three nights only April 4th, 5th and 6th.

Do Covid Precautions Work?

"The New York Times article says this. It says good morning. Life in red America and blue America is quite different. What about COVID caseloads? It says this, that there's a modest gap. This is The New York Times writing. Daily life in red and blue America has continued to be quite different over the past few months. It is a reflection over the partisan divide over COVID-19. So The New York Times is writing this, David leonhardt, and he goes through this article, and he admits the following quote. In the country's most liberal cities, many people are still avoiding restaurants. The number of seated diners last month was about 40% below pre-pandemic levels in New York Philadelphia Minneapolis and San Francisco and Cambridge, Massachusetts, according to open table. By contrast, Nashville Phoenix Charlotte and Austin, as well as in Oklahoma, Nebraska and New Hampshire. Residents and liberal cities like New York, Washington and San Jose are still spending significantly more time at home and less time at the office. In more conservative places, the rhythm of daily life has returned to nearly normal. So The New York Times is diving into the data here and they say quote, during the omicron wave, schools and heavily Democrat areas were more likely to close. Some classrooms require students to stay at home for extended periods of time. Mask wearing was very common in liberal areas, far more common in liberal communities than conservative ones. These are a stark difference that have created a kind of natural experiment. Did the omicron variant spread less in parts of the United States where social distancing and masking were more common, and The New York Times says the answer is surprisingly unclear. They say, quote, the number of official COVID cases has been somewhat higher in Democrat areas that masked and had lockdowns and lower in Republican areas, according to The New York Times, data. Now, The New York Times doesn't want to say this definitively, but they're shocked and they're confused. They say this is unclear. Now there's a reason why this is so important. We just locked down our civilization for two years, put vaccine mandates on people that did not need to get a vaccine against the virus that did not significantly threaten them. Lockdown our entire civilization and created $6 trillion as a result. But I'm very concerned by the lack of interest. From the people in charge have an honest diagnosis of what we just put our country through.

The they owe money the bank owes money to the raiders and they are they strong To take the bag. So yes, to go to the. Bank to see if they will bail out his client, the the newspaper. So, the criterion money time's running out and jacks kind of go into Charlotte to connect with chairman of America back to see if And get a little house right and he walks into the sane and the as Canada's going to set us up to.

And so I think there's a trap sometimes authors feeling obligated to make their cover too literal to the story, so that's why now I kind of collaborate I used to have more hand in the cover design, but when you're writing the story, I think it can be really personal to what you want on there, and you can miss opportunities to really put a cover on there that that jumps out, so that was. Designed by Mike Cover designer in the second I saw it gave me the feeling that I wanted to capture in the book.

Well you did you do lift weights You Walk Daily. You've done that for for many many years. You said you grew up skating waiting on frozen pause but you also said to me that you You grew up poor poor Pennsylvania and worked through school and And that somehow influenced deriding I think it has particularly influenced the blue car which is set in the mountains of North Carolina and deals with a a young girl age. Twelve who who is poor and It helped me To make that realistic and bonds have courage. I knew what it was like to To go out on the frozen morning with The new car. You're a knew what it was like to go out into a outdoor privy in summer with wasps or winter when you're freezing All those things helped me bring some sensory experiences. I think to those novels in particular and actually aww tangled threads is set at the turn of the nineteenth century. So it It helped me with that too. We're going to get under the covers with those books in just a moment But reading and writing and interesting languages something you've had most of your life right. This is true and still do. I mean you were writing stories at a young engage and You said you learn Braille sidelines and most recently Spanish. So we're we're give sandy languages fascinate. Let me They fascinate me on many levels. There are a challenge there an opportunity to connect with other people through learning Spanish. I've been able to connect with Some of the Hispanics in our community and in particular. I teach them English as a second language which helped people get their citizenship I learned Braille because I was at home not working with the baby and was bored but but I was able to use it to Braille a cookbook for young bride. They've all been very rewarding. And you're an editor at the Charlotte Observer for a number of years and a- As that helped your writing or is it somehow gets you. floss pecking pages as you as you start as you go along It's helped and hindered. It's helped because only once my whole writing career have I suffered from writer's block. It is hindered because my first drafts are incredibly short Yeah because that's what you learn in the newspaper business. Keep it tight and so I have to Learn I had to learn to let the story. Sorry breathe and to expand okay so before we dive under the covers just talking about book covers for second one of the books you're GonNa read from today. is bonds of courage and all that on that front cover. It looks like this could be a A river sort of set in the foothills. Maybe I don't know where would this be said. That is actually only the Susquehanna river into indepence near Towanda Pennsylvania. I'm from Towanda. Pennsylvania rivers are in almost all my novels for for some reason I grew up on a river An imbalance encourage One of the characters fleas downstream the Susquehanna and so that seemed like a fitting cover for.

I decided I wanted to write a book and I chose a mystery because I thought mystery would be rather structure. I would have to have suspects. I'd have to have a clues Things that would help me to Hangar structure my first novel And I also operating on right what you know of veered after that I said it in a mythical Charlotte newspaper mythical shown is as if there were a lot of shroud new service to choose from right. Well I have to say it'd be The physical layout is based exactly on the old Charlene Observer building but the characters are are different. And you say that in that book along the way that You know there's a quest to find to kill her but The person who searching must cope with family secret. That's been buried for years owners in a secret that threatens One of her important relationships. That's true I guess. Another theme perhaps APPS that runs through all of my books is secrets the effects of secrets on relationships both positive and negative. Okay so we started out with a with a body in chapter one awesome deadline for death. We've got to solve it and then you move to To a different kind of store I did. I think the next one I wrote was tangled threads. I went to the Museum of the New South and saw their exhibit from cotton fields. Skyscrapers and I was intrigued. By the whole Piedmont textile mill Story I started to do some research and the next thing I know I'd written tangled threads which is set in a like around little before nineteen hundred Piedmont cotton mill the village mythical again because I wanted to let my characters go down any street that I made up And it deals with the relationship between into Young Girls Ruth and Roseanne rather and Delia and various pass. It they take can. Life's something happens early on that Changes their relationship to one of Being enemies to each other Aw and then. Years later near the end of life The granddaughter comes and To deal you in a nursing home and tells sir she has to come back and confront her enemy and that is about making peace at the end of your life with things you did earlier and secrets you've got also Wanted to explore the relationship between old and young. There aren't as many books as I'd like with really older characters my character after was eighty years old And so that was something else that interests me in that book in your one. One of the Young girls escapes the mill and other Remains behind and you say timing on their lives sort of intertwined and sometimes unexpected and painful ways even fail you say And after returning under their childhood home and they're stunned to find out of that.

WHO has been sex traffic vic since she was thirteen? She was tricked into coming to America from Ukraine to model and she's locked in an abandoned building right now and she can hear. New Girl are all being broken in so to speak on the other side of the wall. Sophia pulled one earplug away from her ear. The new girls voice. Jason Grown raspy and weak. But she still sobbed and yelled out for help. That would never come God. She's a feisty one. She still doesn't get that. Her whole life has changed. Maybe it's hard for her to believe but the sooner she figures it out and toughens up the better off she'll be spent might pull out her back tooth breath cut off part of her toe.

That's how it worked. The Motel. Girls never lasted very long. Thank God Sophia. Wasn't one of them. If she had been so beautiful she'd be home with her family right now complaining with her brothers.

It had been just the three of them him her Anastacia and Sasha moving city to city never more than a week in the same location enduring shameful and perverted horrors behind closed bedroom doors but now it was only her in anesthesia.

Yep The new girl was here to say our Jennifer. That's hard to listen to you but you're You're you're working truth into the book because without Realism it. It just wouldn't. It wouldn't be the same right. Yes it's hard. It's a challenge to write a book about a very disturbing topic and and not make it unreadable. So I tried to handle it in a tasteful manner not certainly this sucks is implied but but it's never ever graphically portrayed None of my books even have swears percents. So it's extremely disturbing topic and yet it's my even still be. PG Thirteen perhaps so little Ryan life stuff here you. You've been riding quite a while now or I've been writing for nine years. When when did you first call call yourself an author Not until my first book was published and then it was very real very fast and very frightening and then I really tried to learn as much as you started out with the traditional published. Work is that right and then you shifted to independent publishing So why Indian. How does that work for you I love Indie publishing when I first started started. There's no way I could have done. It simply didn't know enough about what was involved but after I was published My publisher I said I had to do two things that I wasn't doing had to have a website and I had to have a social media presence and I had none so I took that to heart and really got involved evolved Mostly on facebook joining all sorts of author groups for publishing for marketing. I learned so much Just from information mation. That's freely available on. Just do this now. Not only because I thought I could and I wanted to but it just suits my personality better. I like being in control. I'm not very patient. There's so much waiting and so many things that are out of your control with a traditional publisher three different series. How do you keep the character straight? They are so real to me. They are as real as you know your mom your dad your so you know no matter. Yeah I mean you can get into their head and you're good writing process. You're treating this kind of like a business now. So what's your process. What's your routine well I I do everything else. Like Cleaner House walked away. I once that's done. I'm kind of just looking came forward to when I can sit down and write so it's every day for as much time as I can. So normally that's only two or three hours but I try not to ever skip skip a day and it's a mixture of of writing and marketing and editing for other people and Every day I'm doing something related to my writing career and you're also marketing every day right single day.

She's published seven dark and twisty mystery thriller novels in a few horror stories in different anthologies and she has three different series and process assists the Brook Walton Series Agent Victoria Heslin series and the Quin trainer Madeline Hamilton series. You find out more information about her in the show notes shoulders orders podcast dot com Jennifer. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. How do you become an Amazon in USA? Today bestselling author you. Craft sell a lot of books a lot of books and I did it primarily by selling e books probably eighty five percent. One of my sales are e books or did you kind of gravitate to that I started out with a small publisher and I probably sold more copies then. Dan But I am able to do most of my marketing on social media online. So it's mostly books and then audiobooks next. We might get into some of that in the writer's life segment but first we're here to talk about your book pretty little girls Before we get under the covers. Let's talk about the coverage you gotta well it's There's an old house on the cover here. Yeah it's supposed to be a beautiful Charlotte home an upscale home on like you find in Myers Park or somewhere similar news the mood. I mean it looks like the new leaves on the trees. Is it to set the mood for the for the difficulties that starts in this book. Yeah it's supposed to be a little harsh ominous and there's two girls I think it is probably silhouettes on long sidewalk walk. They could be up to a front porch. Say Myers Park or somewhere like that. That was the idea okay but cloud cover and Dr Klaus at the top. Don't so did you cover for you and the designer is Tim Barber. He did the first book in that series as well. It looks very similar them. All are it's got the dark cloudy skies and ominous thriller mystery. Look that fits with the genre and did you have to learn that over every time to kind of make the the book covers fit to the story is a lessons learned in the writing process. Yes and I actually paid credited money to take the cover design course only to learn after a lot of practice that I will never be so I have a good understanding of what they need. At standout fit in genre. But I cannot do the myself all right so You know we pick up a book in the store because you saw a lot of e books a UH lucky books. I like the the paperback books too but Do you sell both you sell them. E books and paperbacks can order in either format right okay so when they pick up the back of this book You've got a little teaser on human reading that force until you know who you can trust you. Trust Trust no one disappearance of prep school girl from an affluent family lease to a world of hidden secrets more shocking than anyone could imagine. FBI Agent Victoria Heslin investigates alongside local. Please but the mysteries only deepen. Why are the girls parents so uncooperative? And why are the local authorities resisting her help. When our efforts uncover sex trafficking operation Heslin enlists friend friend and fellow agent Dante Rivera to go rogue and try to save the girls before it's too late so we've We've seen the book cover that attracts us on the front. We flipped it over now. We're now intrigue. We don't want to read you. Read get under the covers with me really okay. Let's do so you were diving in the book now. We're in the front of the book or the opening chapters again inciting incident talk about inciting incident. Prep school girl from an affluent family disappears at a Charlotte Mall. This could be any upscale mall might become somewhat South Park right or something that could be could be. You never know right. So was this. This disappearance A girl that might typically disappear in this kind of situation or not not at all. And that's one of the mysteries trees in this story. Twi was this girl targeted. She's not at all the typical girl that sex traffickers would would want to bring into their operation and the parents have too many resources they can go out and find her. But it's the and we're going to talk about this issue in just a minute is a horrific nick problem But before we get to that let's talk about the Protagonist here agent Victoria Heslin. She's not insure Israel. She flies into Charlotte in this book. Right so early in the book. Because I'm reading it. So she's a protagonist She's gotTa run series written by Jennifer rough right. She's she does. She's in her early thirties. Tell us about Well Victoria is a very capable. FBI agent but she's also an heiress Thanks to wealthy grandfather so she has all this money on the side that makes her life a little more interesting than maybe the average. FBI agent agent and. She's kind of obsessed with animals and rescuing dogs. She has seven dogs and she has a full-time vet. That takes care of them because she's on the road a lot and understand that you are a dog lover yourself. She's kind of living my dream life with unlimited needed funds to rescue animals and she is smart but not in a relationship but necessarily literally not opposed to it but just what is going on with her. She's she's little introverted and she might be a little odd in some ways so oh men certainly find her desirable and she's Kinda shied away from relationships and in these novel she's really trying she's really really trying to kind of be a little more normal and strike up a relationship and be involved with someone other than her career and her animals also. So is there a lot of times people ask they ask me when I wrote a couple of books you know who. Which one are you? What part of us and do you ever try to put a little bit of you and some some of your characters well? She talks to her dogs all the time. People definitely that Wa- Charlotte. Why did you said it in Charlotte? I was looking for an idea for my next Victoria Heslin novel about a year ago and we had a big basketball tournament ornament here in Charlotte and I was listening to the radio. The local news and the local news was giving tips on what to look out for for sex trafficking a gang. They were saying it's going to be prevalent around this tournament. And here's what to look out for so you can help prevent it. So I always like to write about topics topics that are relevant and timely things that interest me and the paper or the news so I was Kinda like. That's it. That's that's GonNa be the setting for this mystery. So and this is a truth is being explored in this book sex trafficking and while we've read a lot about it I mean it's it's almost like any kind of crime if you're when you're going through life you're in Charlotte if you don't bump up against say it you don't necessarily feel it but it's there and it is out there lurking in this case lurking in the shadows all right. So we're we're at a sex trafficking. I mean what did you learn about this. The research well sex trafficking king is very prevalent went in almost every major city in this country. Charlotte is one of the lead cities for sex trafficking North Carolina and as prevalent whenever ever there are events that draw in thousands of people from out of town so we have all sorts of business headquarters here and then we have NASCAR events. We have big football games. We have basketball tournaments. All of those events draw in customers for sex trafficking and Charlotte is. They are to to meet that time. Hand unfortunately And so how did you gather this information. Did you talk to. People had knowledge of it in in law enforcement and I did a lot of research I had contact in law enforcement. in Raleigh he's an FBI agent on a human trafficking task force and he was very helpful to me. I went to several talks from sex trafficking survivors women who are adults now but were sex trafficked when they were younger occur and are out there telling their stories to help raise awareness and prevent it from happening and I spent a lot of time with a woman named Tammy Harris here in Charlotte who runs the Ursus Institute.

Let's get under the covers. I'm your host Landis Wade thank you for listening. Welcome phoebe Pressler to the first inaugural under the covers upset. Charlotte podcast yeah. This is something new this the noon oppression and what better way to start something new then talking with an author about a book folks on lessons learned in the business world right absolutely absolutely yeah and before that Just a little bit about you. Your president owner spark publications. It's national award winning independent Publishing firm and you specialize in design right. I mean you're helping. People tell their stories. But JALEN designed their books designed beautiful books for them with Great Britain copy. Great edited edited copy. Yes and a little bit about your personal. Forget into this you've You tell it in your in your book here but You've received some awards. You a reduction in the two thousand Nineteen North Carolina Women Business Owners Hall of fame and your ward of the two thousand eighteen first generation family business of the Year Award by Charlotte Business Journal. Great Thousand Nineteen One's not in the book. Let's fresh okay good. Well which one do you like. More one celebrates on family family as a whole and the other celebrates the journey that I've I've been on with my entire team. Am I family so I like them both even help if you tell their stories but now in this book the Fabulous F words of business ownership. You're telling some years to a rottweiler. Write a book for me. It was really one of those things that you start realizing that your journey has become bigger than bigger than yourself and my journey has become. I'm bigger than me. It's it's one of those things to finally sit down and organize the the the process the journey the time line and the lessons kind of learned along along with face punches. Well first of all F. words I was born at F word. My name is Fabi. My parents are French. I get to do that. It didn't just pull out with the source one day and start thumbing through the dictionary and find Edward you like the most. I had a lot already on my brain okay so subtitle redefining choice words to fuel your small business talk about that. Well everybody assumes that F. Words is about out the F word and business owners use that one freely enough. I was just redefining all those choice. Words from you know not being the F word but really really more about fear. Failure fatigue faith flourishing facade. So the good f words. We're going to get a little bit into the book process itself often the writing life segment after you read something in the middle of the show here But design you are designer. I came into this world as a designer there and that was my degree. But I tell you what Thirty years in business has changed that a little bit and now I have great designers on staff Purple Purple. It was my favorite color. This was about me so it's purple and it's an F. Word Fabulous so there you go one of the things you do with this book You you provide Addis Readers and enjoyed the book by the way you got a table of contents here You foreshadow with an introduction F. Words and then you go chapter by chapter where you focus focus on all these different If it was intentional. Because you're a designer that's right and you start out with good foundations because you need to set the foundation for the rest of the absolutely not for Your Business Right Foundation for Your Business and a lot of people don't realize how much their family was there foundation and how that actually truly impacts their business business and. That's one of the reasons why I wanted to start with foundation in the book and a wondered because when i read the piece of that foundations you revealing quite a bit about your pass. Some of which Secrets you know. Somebody might not tell about their families because there's some heartbreak involved. There's some failure involved was was that difficult to do for. You wasn't difficult This round I had really started coming to terms with most of my story several years ago but the fabulous thing about writing and allowing yourself to really go through until your story is that it kind of opened up some questions and then even even just wondering about those questions and throwing them out there to the universe. Then it's like all of a sudden I start getting answers to things I always wondered about so talk a little bit about the path my My father had is a really great chef But chose not to because he just was a passionate man really learn about business so much agent so we opened up a restaurant and that restaurant did not make it You know he had to close that and unfortunately through that process we we. He lost the restaurant. We lost our home. We lost the fine we lived on. We needed to move in with another family and sharing that briefly with an aunt of mine that came over to visit for the summer From France she said Yeah. There family was so heartbroken. Your French family was so heartbroken about that especially since you know he already knew and I was like what do you mean the already knew. He goes well because of the history. And I'm like what history and that's where I found out that my great grandfather was also a business owner and he was. He owned a bank and France and that bank failed during the Great Depression when all the other banks were going under and it was on. It's an incredible story and I wrote about that in the book but I never knew that story and that was like you know a big ham that kind of pulled together a lot of questions and answers Sir Law at one moment failure and several generations ahead of you and you're a business owner has said when you sort of put that together was that a burden or was it somehow something nine. Did you to say I'm going to be able to do this. I don't know that it was either one. I think it was more of you. Now what I am going to rectify this This family history and my sister has is now a business owner and so am I and I think we've we've really really cleaned up that family. History healed it healed at not necessarily cleaned up at healed. It where you cover everything in the book that you've you've dealt dealt with You talk about that foundation but You also talk about dealing with employees. You also talk about You know the the different things that you you had to do to overcome. Along the way the fact he didn't take salaries at times because times were tough All these lessons you learned you. Try to pack a number of these in this book yes US new so it's not it's not say how to. Maybe it's a how to book. Sometimes I think that's what I really realized with With you know the historical thing thing through my family and through the lessons I had with my family and I left home at seventeen and came to Charlotte by myself and started my life with with no money no car. No No nothin' thin and it's it's really the book really out lies it from a business perspective but the business perspective.

"Prior works include the last fourteen squawks and countless legal, brief out, of course throughout the nation. Brad is not in the show this year because he has eleven year old trip voice and an eight year old. He likes to say the more Cajun, brow, electric. Thanks wife. Brazil for lowering the right to shear show and promises to stop laughing. When the boys, tell jokes, don't make any sense. The end with the word diarrhea. Hey, mike. How's welcome to the show? Thank you. This is Charlotte readers podcast me Charlotte. Squawks you're having a curse tonight. So you you've stepped out appreciate that added to go. The first part is the first music rehearsal with the band and sound, and it's always unmitigated disaster kind of tents and there. Well, no, it's not that just that everybody's finding we have, like, I don't know thirty five microphones and. A new sound system this year. And people are finding everybody is finding their way the same time. So my, my first question years, and television years in radio, you're the Charlotte radio, Gada BFA, you ask intelligent questions everyday, and then you come and do this. You know. The real. This is the true store years ago when this thing I went Charlotte squawks, I started it was a fundraiser for WTI. And it was for a retirement party for the general manager out there and Keith Martin who is a director and producer Charlotte time came to me. And he said, we'd like to do this comedy show skewering all things Charlotte, and we'd like to do a takeoff on the name of your radio show, Charlotte. Talks. Call Charlotte squawks would that the okay? I says you're what the heck and then they said we'd like you to front it. Oh. I said, yes, it was a three show thing. And I thought it's a one off and he promised, I would only be in one or two numbers. And I would welcome the audience and that well, I was in thirty five numbers fifteen years later. Yeah. Can't it's the show that will not die and I can't get out of it. And now I produce it and directed and so I'm kind of stuck. So how did you meet Bryan Bryan with my law partner from Brian, and I and several other people were asked to also help. Right, that very first show, but you're not the writer the lyrics now not now. No. Because Brian Brian has come if there's something wrong lyrics, it's all Brian, it's all his fault. Sometimes Brian will ask me to write a song that he stumped on. And I will I will sit down and spend four hours on a Saturday, writing the song. And then I'll send it to him. And he'll send it back fifteen minutes later and the only thing resembling my words are the words and, and the that's it. So he does it all does all the writing of the songs, I do the monologue and a couple of other things, and I direct the show coming to the show. For years. And you always throw in these little newsflashes, and you come out and sometimes the jokes work and. Sometimes they don't first of all. I never think anything in the show is funny, ever ever ever until until the hits on. I obviously have no sense of humor. So it's always a surprise to me a pleasant one at that, that the audience last, and yes, we get the newscast and the news, the newscasts change throughout the show topical, but the first night, we get them is denied of dress rehearsal. The last dress rehearsal before an audience, and Joanna who does the news with me, and I come out, and we just read these things coal. We've never seen before never seen him. And of course, there's nobody in the house to laugh, and we just read them, flat and they're not funny to us, and I say the grammars wrong in the sentence. Brian needs a comma or that you dispel that or that's not right. You got to change this. There's got to be some way for them to change clothes in this. That's right. And then the second night we come out as you said, some of the jokes work in some of. Don't in the ones that don't disappear. So do you enjoy? I mean making fun of the man. I mean it's sort of or you know, you do this, right. Let me ask this, what you just radio show and actually, went to your art of the interview the other day. And you don't get the chance to express your own opinions in this show I have. No, that's because you're still working for WFAN. Let's get back to that. I have no opinion. But you make fun of yourself to. Of course, we make fun of everybody and everything we try to it's we really do. Try to offend everybody at some point in the show. That's the fun of it. So I noticed that, you know, you saying you direct you've got a history that you've for years, you're involved in community theater, directing. So do you enjoy that more than your day job? Yeah. You know, I always thought that when I retired this is what I would do. And I was looked around when I was in my twenties thinking, we're all the old guys, the was held the cast an old person in a play and discriminate why. Because first of all, you wanna do stay home and sit on your deck, or watch television. Exactly. You can't remember the lines anymore. That's the problem. But in the last, I think, at the very end of this show, where you're doing the last part, there, sort of making fun of you. I think always Ryan always finds talk shows solo. No, not your talks. I'm just an old man. No body loves me. Yes, you're just an old man who eats at Appleby. Yes. I don't think I've ever eaten taking his and his vitamin c. So what this, this one is coming up. What are you excited about with the show here? I'm excited about. We're doing a number called on next door and it's based on a lame is song called one day more. I just heard it in your. Yeah. And that's very complicated and complex. And when you're on the stage if you're not standing directly next to somebody, you can't hear them. Yeah. So we're, we're, we're completely like blind men in the dark. We can't hear each other at all. But I'm told it sounds okay? Sound great. I wanted to clamp was watching look at your faces after done y'all look around. Was it any good? We can't hear each can't hurt you some. That's a good number. I think we're making fun of grocery stores. I think that, that's a fun, number two part of the program, I can never remember what the show's about Brian is ran off with it. But here here's the rundown. Gosh, let's see. He ran off with the program. Okay. Well, let's see just gonna look flip through this very quickly. What am I district? You get it all this out right district nine that's about the ninth district to redo and, and, and, and we're out of money. That's about the, the Greenway being seventy seven billion dollars short. We'll explain it to you show. We've been assigned we've been given the responsibility by the city council to explain it to the voters, what happened, and we will with the money. Yes, we will. So. So they just some of the things that we have a surprise number. For Mr. teper good that we're still working out here. It is, we will have when, as we are recording this. We are one week away from opening night and last night was the first time, we tried this number because no, we had to we have to we just got in some of the paraphernalia that we're using for the number. So. So you fifteen years in looking back. What are some of your memories favorite members? Remember any the care should say I love talking to the audience. We have a have a chance in this show to talk to the audience. One year. We had both ended the Oreo the county manager and at the time the mayor, Julia, not Yulia Roberts. Jennifer, Jennifer Roberts L. They look very similar. She would be flattered. We had him in the audience at the same time, there was something going on between the city and the county. So I had them debate, it I went back and forth, had the debate it live. And they were not expecting it. That's because the audience finds it fun you pull in the, the politicians for cameos. Yes. Sometimes that works. Sometimes it doesn't when, when. It was a good sport. Right. He was a great sport. I mean he would do anything we asked him to do and one that one year he did something any had an idea about how he wanted to do it. And I let him do it that way. And I took it to the video editor, who was, Pat mccrory fan, it, I'm not going to edit this until I hear from him that it's okay to do this, because this this'll kill him. I saw one where seven press conference and you walk in and interrupt him because he's just announced that the Republican national conventions coming to Charlotte right this when the Democrats game. Well now what was happening? You could play that clip now. And you'd be the one. He was just crying. Right. It was just several years too early. But he would do anything for us to think about so you keep doing it might you know that's not up to me. It's not up to a higher power. But you enjoy enjoy it's always frustrating, but it usually has paid off people like the show. It's a great cast of people. These are really fabulous. Individuals are great talents, and they're fun door a make you feel younger like you're back in high school in highschool pledge after a great show, y'all nailed it. Let's go get a beer as some of that, that goes on. No, none of that. Jaded. They pay us to hurt they do that. So they must not be inviting you. The director. And just you gotta go back so. Hey, mike. Thanks a lot predate. It man. Thank you. Thanks so broad. Con welcome to the show. Thanks for having me on. This is this is new for former law partners and Nella get interviewed. I don't know how to feel about this. Don't make this adept deposition. And tell him where we are right now. So we are in the lobby of the booth feeder, which during which the cast is doing its sits probe, which is I know. I know seriously. We're getting into theater stuff. The sits brogue is, is sort of the theater word for the first rehearsal with the band, o the sits proofs of somebody's sitting there's a lot of people sitting actually their cast is sitting on the stage. Everybody sits. I don't think that's the origin of the word. But it's, it's okay. Might my Mike you Brian. Yeah. Gaul from may it, please the court to kiss my. Say that on the pot. Put a little explicit tag. All right. Good. So, so I mean how and why? It's well, as you know, it's, it's sort of the repressed part of us lawyers that has to break out every once in a while. And, and say what we really think. Right. Yeah. But she, you know, this is not like riding Traub race. I mean you're putting lyrics to songs music and you're watching it up. Why do you do this? I'm messed up a momma sick puppy now. I you know, it's an for fifteen years, by the way. Yeah. Now, it's it's I mean, it's such a fantastic fun outlet, and I'm so blessed to have people in the community that thought you know, you know, let, let's let Brian have fun and do this because it's, it's a really kind of cool thing. And the reason why I really kinda got into it as I have a. I grew up doing musical theater, and cappella and all the really cool stuff. That kids do. Right. I would do. Would do Costa ASI you're doing like football. Exactly. Is there stuff can sing? So, but and then, you know as I went through law school, there was a show that made fun of professors called the Lytle show..
