"Lee Mask debates in America is waging on and spreading to other parts of the world as well and listen. This is the good news ride home, and while that's a loose definition at the best of times I still don't WanNa get into the mask controversies explicitly instead I want to take a look back at history and what happened the last time people were asked to wear masks for public health in the United. States. The nineteen, eighteen flu epidemic. I don't know if this will make you hopeful or more cynical to know that we've been here before, but it's pretty interesting. I mean this quote from the New York Times is almost uncanny quotes in nineteen eighteen and nineteen nineteen as bars, saloons, restaurants, theaters, and schools were closed masks became scapegoats, a symbol of government overreach, inspiring protests, petitions, and defiant barefaced gatherings. All the while thousands of Americans were dying in a deadly pandemic and quotes. The first US infections were identified in March nineteen eighteen, and by the fall seven US cities had enacted mandatory mask laws in San Francisco. The first US hotspot face coverings had to be least four layers, thick Dr, Howard, markel historian of epidemics, and the author of the Book Quarantine with an exclamation point notes that opposition to masks wasn't super common at least not at first, but it did exist and it grew the longer the pandemic war on by nineteen nineteen when the pandemic was heading into its second year people even formed in Anti Mask League. Now anti massacres may not have been super common at first, but they were vocal at least in the archival materials that we have. They accused masks of being uncomfortable infringing on their freedom and just plain looking weird. They called the muzzles said they looked like pig snouts or quote nine ordinary slabs of Ravioli arranged in a square people, put them on their dogs to mock the mandates and some even. Cut Holes in the mask to smoke through one journalist on the whitaker rating in the La Times. The same month that the flu killed one hundred and ninety five thousand Americans made fun of the masks at length and beyond that article, she refused to wear one herself and was then quote forcibly taken to the Red Cross as a slacker and ordered to make one and put it on and quotes. It's not clear how many people got frogmarched to the Red Cross to make an don their own mask but there were other set penalties which ranged from five to ten dollars or ten days imprisonment. But didn't quite pan out because so many people were arrested quoting. New. York Times on November ninth one, thousand people were arrested the San Francisco Chronicle reported city prisons swelled to standing room only police shifts. Court sessions were added to help manage where is your mask could judge Matthew Brady asked fenders at the hall of Justice were sessions dragged into night. Some gave fake names said they just wanted to light. A cigar or that they hated following laws and quotes in November of nineteen eighteen Los Angeles held a public forum to decide whether or not to implement a mask mandate. We'll never know if it was as wild as the one in. Palm. Beach that was so filled with conspiracy theorists and passionate misinformation peddlers that several people edited it over footage of a town hall from the TV show parks and REC. Even back in nineteen eighteen, there were people opposing the masks because they were quote, mere dirt and dust traps that do more harm than good and quotes one unexpected group who were opposed to masks at least unexpected for me suffragettes probably not all of them but at least a delegation of them in Illinois as reported by the Chicago Daily Tribune. They were resistant to the idea of covering their mouths at a time when their voices needed to be heard the most. which all right that's fine. Figure of speech but not so much something to live or die over. Women were also the initial instigators behind the Anti Mask League, which was founded following San Francisco's reinstitution of their mask mandate. At the very end of nineteen eighteen, it was founded by E J Harrington, a lawyer and political opponent of the San Francisco Mayor, as well as six other women men joined as well many of them, the leaders of unions or from the San Francisco Board of supervisors those who had voted against the. Reinstitution including the New York Times the United Behind demands for the repeal of the Mask Ordinance and for the resignations of the mayor and health officials. Their objections included lack of scientific evidence that masks worked and the idea that forcing people to the coverings was unconstitutional on January twenty seven, th the League protested at a Board of supervisors meeting. But the mayor held his ground there were hisses cries of and liberty and quotes. The mayor did end up repealing the mandate when cases decreased a few weeks later. But soon, a third wave of the flu hit the city in the nation quoting again, the final death toll reached an estimated six, hundred, seventy, five, thousand, nationwide or thirty for every one thousand people in San Francisco making it one of the worst hit cities in America and quotes. Now. I know that we shouldn't compare what's happening now. So closely to the nineteen eighteen pandemic, they were different in many ways comparing our present or future to history is never the most productive thing to do. But I do find it fascinating how many small acts and sentiments from then our mere today and it wasn't just the reaction masks. There were a number of other strategies employed back then that some people seem to have trouble believing or sticking to now large gatherings were canceled. Windows were instructed to be open for better ventilation. Anything that could happen outside did even government proceedings and even at the Chicago suffragette convention where they were also opposed masks, they set up all of their chairs, four feet apart and limited the number of detainees. Kind of blows my mind when people claim something happening now is brand new or In some way when in fact, it's happened before or existed for generations. And I don't know if knowing that would change anyone's opinion right now because as we heard people opposed masks back then too. But for me at least it helps remind me that the world is bigger than just this moment we're living through it helps to feel a kinship with our ancestors learn what their struggles were and what their triumphs were to think that we.

What's the History of the Tooth Fairy?

What's the History of the Tooth Fairy?

"We spoke by email with Christina. Kill Grove and enter apologised science writer with a background in archaeology. So she's used to dealing with teeth and bones but even she wasn't prepared for the site of her seven-year-old daughter extracting her own upper right central incisors in an effort to cash. It in kilograms said I was initially inspired. Track down the source of the tooth fairy legend. When my older daughter lost her first tooth she knew the tooth fairy wasn't real but wanted to know when and why the story began. Even if you aren't familiar with the tooth fairies origin story you've likely heard of her or encountered a kid like kill ribs who's perhaps a little overly excited to earn some dough. The folklore dictates that when a child loses a baby tooth. They should place it under their pillow at night. And when the awake the next morning they'll find their loss tooth has been replaced with a small amount of money. A courtesy of a magical and seemingly enamel obsessed sprite. I'm like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. The tooth fairy has somewhat enigmatic history. Kill Grove said. I was surprised that the tooth fairy is a comparatively new legend. She started to take off with the boomer generation getting paid for their teeth and was cemented in encyclopedias and the media with genetics and while other childhood characters typically have roots and religious. Traditions says quote the secular tooth fairy is really a modern invention. So who is this mysterious mythical creature and why is she so dead set on swapping baby teeth for cash? We also spoke by email with Dr Sowell Colombo d. m. d. of the little royals dentistry for kids in Jupiter Florida. He said some have suggested that the story of the tooth fairy dates back to north traditions from the thirteenth century. When it became a tradition for tooth fee to be given to a child when they lost their first baby tooth the more modern tooth fairy as we know it was first referenced in an editorial from Chicago Daily Tribune in one thousand nine hundred eight. Which at that time. Valued the tooth fairies contribution at five cents compared to an average approaching four dollars a tooth today so kill grove pegs. The popularity of the tooth fairy to the childhood of the boomers and Colombo dates the characters birth back to twelve hundreds. But there's a third possibility writer and publisher Michael. Kingston explained any twenty fourteen piece for salon. That the legend really took off in the nineteen seventies when a woman named Rosemary Wells took it upon herself to thoroughly research report on the tooth fairies. Saga Kill Group said. Dr Wells was a professor teaching scientific writing at northwestern. University dental school in the nineteen seventies when she realized there was little information about the origin of the tooth fairy legend. She worked on tracking down the origin and surveyed Americans on their tooth fairy practices for twenty years before starting small museum in her home dedicated to the tooth fairy. Kingston said I love when people accidentally become world experts on something and Rosemary. Wells is a great example of this. She asked a simple question followed her curiosity and ended up with private museum in her home dedicated to the tooth fairy. How do you not root for that? As Winston writes the tooth fairy is a relatively recent creation but quote rituals surrounding tooth loss. Date back much further than that. He points out that every single recorded human culture has some sort of traditional practice centered around the disposal of lost baby teeth and researcher be townend broke down the various rituals in an article in the British Dental Journal in Nineteen Sixty three titled the Non Therapeutic Extraction of teeth and its relation to the ritual disposal of shed deciduous teeth town and said that cultures tend to do one of nine things throw the tooth into the sun in to fire between the legs onto or over the roof of the house. It in a mouse hole. Bury it hide it. Place it in a tree or on a wall or have the mother child or an animal swallow it. Americans however spun the legend in a unique way blending and augmenting existing traditions to result in benevolent fairy who rewards the dental milestone with money and instant points out the tooth fairies star rose at a time when Disney was introducing tynan cuddly characters. Who are perfectly in line with the tooth fairies sweet and supernatural image if you're a parent and unsure of how to handle the tooth very topic with Your Young Tot Colombo has a suggestion. He said we encourage parents to call tooth fairy hotlines for the first tooth lost as well as remind them to put the tooth under the pillow. So the tooth fairy can work their magic and yes. Googling tooth fairy hotlines does turn up all sorts of helpful results including APPS and local office voice mailboxes. And if you're curious how much the tooth fairy is doling out. Nowadays researchers found that the national average was up to four dollars and sixty six cents as of two thousand sixteen almost eighty percent higher than the average in two thousand eleven which was around two dollars and sixty cents. But if you're a freaked out and frugal parents. In twenty twenty you can breathe a sigh of relief. A twenty eighteen study found the national average dipped back down to three dollars and seventy cents so despite the impact of inflation it appears even the tooth fairy has her monetary limits.

"chicago daily tribune" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind

"Wasn't a step to blow your mind. My name is Robert Land. And I'm Jim McCormick and we're back for our two electric blue blue. Our second exploration of a bunch of weird sort of bronze punk takes on the stories. He's of the Ark of the covenant from the Hebrew Bible Right. It's kind of perfect because this is the kind of this is kind of Hanukkah content for stuff. Blow your mind. Oh I again think about the timing. Yeah we're publishing these episodes the week of Hanukkah almost entirely by by accident But but pleasant accident I would say so. Last time. We talked about the stories about say the Philistine captivity of the Ark of the covenant. And the Marauders and what all that meant but there is another aspect to the Ark of God story the Tends to tempt people into the techno mythology realm not only was the arc said to bring vast destructions and Plagues of Murad. There are also these Bible stories. Tell of the ARC lashing out with blasts of power that kill offenders in an instant And so there are a couple of examples. One is the story we just told about errands. Two sons we don't get a whole lot of details but it seems like errands. Two sons entered the presence of the ARC with some kind of strange inch fire. Essentially the IT sounds like they were not doing the rituals of the Tabernacle as they had been commanded. They're doing something incorrect. Fun Fact Act. I actually traveled home and attended a Sunday school class at my mom's church recently and this was the passage they were discussing really well in the last episode. I thought we were talking about how they almost never bring these stories up in Sunday school at least when we were kid I saw a great example of why it's it's kind of difficult culture folks to have a like a casual real life Oriented conversation about a passage like this about the strange fire of the Lord which apparently sometimes translated it is alien. Fire Alien Fire. They brought alien fire in the sensors before the Lord and the Lord did not like it and he lashed out instruct them dead. Yeah Consumed them with fire from the mercy seat now before we get into the the bronze punk discussions today. We should tell at least one more story of this kind about the story of Ouza. Aw so remember how the Ark was taken to the land of the Philistines. That's one of the stories in the Bible about it. The the Philistines there's a battle and the Philistines take the Ark and they they they put it in the Temple of Day gone until the ARC messes them up and topples the statue of the God Dagan and eventually the Philistines repenteth and the Israelites. Get the ARC back. So when the Israelites under King David Our they're bringing the arc back to their land We get to this passage quote. They place the the Ark of God on a new car that they might bring it from the House of a DAB which was on the hill and Ouza an audio. The Sons of have been a DAB were leading the new cart. So they brought it with the Ark of God from the House of Bene- DAB which was on the hill and audio was walking ahead of the ARC. Meanwhile David and all the House of Israel we're celebrating before the Lord with all kinds of instruments made of for would with Liars Harps tambourines Castaneda symbols but when they came to the threshing floor of Nikon Ouza reached out toward the Ark of God and took hold of it for the oxen nearly upset it and the anger of the Lord burned earned against USA and God struck him down there for this irreverence and he died there by the Ark of God. And then there's a story that apparently this place comes to be named What roughly translates to the breakthrough of Ouza or the bursting out at USA as we discussed at length in the last episode? Oh you look at any of these stories of the Ark of the Covenant or if you look at of course the the classic film Raiders of the Lost Ark. You see great depictions of this general fact that the Ark of the Covenant is considered a dangerous item in the stories about it it is it is a thing that that manifest the presence in the voice of God and and therefore there are a lot of dangers associated with misuse. Even even touching it will even even well meaning touching the idea here is that USA wasn't I'm trying to do a blasphemy to the Ark. He just reached out to keep it from falling over because the oxen were getting old tip around and so the arc might have fallen on the ground. He reached to steady it and that was enough. That got him struck dead so anyway. I think as with the stories that we discussed last time the most fruitful way of understanding ending these stories is that they are legendary narratives not based on actual events but rather to communicate values by telling a story in this case. I think one one of the values that primary here is that the commands of the Lord or to be taken very seriously and that even deviating from God's commands in an accidental or well-meaning meaning way can be met with extremely harsh consequences like Aaron sons. They screw up the rights of the Tabernacle by offering alien fire. They burn something in the Sensor in away. They weren't supposed to and they get burned up themselves. Ouza touches the arc even meaning well just to prevent it from falling over and he it's blasted dead. I think the lesson is pretty clear. Clear right yeah. It's like it's basic dragons lesson as well. Yeah there is a high level magical item in your presence and don't touch it. Don't don't don't don't do anything anything until you've at least cast a few provisional spells to see what's happening right is be very careful with the commands of God. Do do everything you're told. But in the last episode we discussed the concept of this historical Herman Indyk. We're calling bronze punk the desire to of modern interpreters with with a little knowledge about science and technology under their belt to look back at legends. Like this assume that maybe they're based on some kind of actual event whether indirectly or in some exaggerated form and instead of assuming a magical explanation for the event behind the story postulates some kind of lost world of advanced. It's technology hidden in the dust. Storms of history. which again is of course risky because this is the place where history and mythology can converge right? So it's difficult Michael to really lean too heavily on anything that is described in these stories but at the same time. We can't help but do it. The great example from the last episode was was looking at the The plague of mice and tumors are Murad in trying to figure out. Well is this play. Is that what it is that what's being described here. That's one of the ways in which the the bronze punk While not usually a good method of explaining the origins of these legendary tales and myths it does open up some interesting things to consider about the ancient world. Like one of the things we talked about in the last episode was okay. It probably does not make sense to say that the legends ends of the ARC are caused by actually being some ancient bio weapon. But could there have been by weapons in the ancient world. was there germ warfare fair before people had a germ theory of disease and we decided you know it does seem like it's possible that that happened. And there's even some evidence of specific cases where it looks like it happened. Maybe maybe not in this case and for our purposes here on the show. It's also a just a great excuse to talk about some of these things in at the end of the episode at the end of this episode is well. We're probably going to say you know. I don't think we should really put a lot of faith in this particular idea but it does force us to ask questions about about the the inner workings the world in ancient times applying. What we know about science today and sort of unwrapping it through an analysis of the past will? There's an interesting question that's GonNa come out of today's this episode about what causes major breakthroughs in the progress of science in history. So we'll get back to that toward the end of the episode so last time we talked about the idea could have been a weapon of germ warfare. That's unlikely but it is fun to consider We talked about the pretty much impossible idea that it was. A bearer of some sort of radiation hazard underwrites has been popular with people like Eric Von Daniken and I don't know about him specifically some of those ancient alien anytime where you're like. Oh there's some sort of crazy piece of technology it's a nuclear earlier reactor or something And then we've talked about the psychology of artifacts like the ARC being a focal point for worship and how that affects the altered states of consciousness. The mind and and so forth but today we wanted to explore another very strange bronze punk rabbit trail that many many authors have taken over the years to explain stories like errands two to sons in the story of USA These people who are struck dead in the presence of the Ark and that is the idea of the electric arc. Yes this is. This is a pretty fabulous notion because it doesn't really it doesn't depend on aliens it doesn't depend on in a You know alternative view of the evolution of consciousness. Sir Anything it basically just depends basically ask questions about like what were the. What was the knowledge of electricity at the time? And what were the Capabilities and material capabilities in many cases to construct a primitive device. I would like to read with some abridgement from an article. Kohl published in the Chicago Daily Tribune March Fifth Nineteen thirty three by the Reverend John. Evans called scientists. Says sacred box was condenser Robert. Will you help me read some sections from this certainly. Would you like to take the beginning here I shall. It was a charge of some ten thousand volts of static electricity and not the wrath of God that killed when he touched the Ark of the covenant. Such at least. The scientific conjecture of Dean Frederick Rodgers offers of the Department of Engineering Lewis Institute of Technology concerning the mysterious powers of the ARC which was not only an object of reverence to the Israelites but also also a troublesome possession right so the article goes on to tell the story of Ouza as we told before the are goes unsteady oxen are about to knock it over he he touches it he gets struck. Dead and Evans writes quote. Professor Rogers made a study of the construction of the ARC and discovered its design called for a perfectly constructed simple electric condenser or light in jar and then the article also goes on to tell the story of the construction of the Ark of the Covenant when we talked about that in the last episode but basically design specifications are. It's a big wooden box with gold on the inside and the outside and I just any would ship them would right right. Yeah it's Which I believe is supposed to be the ACACIA tree? ACACIA would They called it should him would. And it's got gold on the inside gold on the outside and then these gold old Representative figures of Cherub on the top. So going back to the article. The scientific interest in the construction pointed out by professor. Rogers was the the Acacia wood box about forty inches long and slightly less than thirty inches in width and depth. Not only was lined with gold leaf on the inside but overlaid.

"Hi I'm Jessica Popovac with the curious city team this year Chicago has been marking a grim centennial. The one hundredth anniversary of the race riot of Nineteen Nineteen nineteen. This past summer curious city explored the causes and effects of the bloody events of that summer in addition some of our colleagues recently produced a half power special that took a fresh look at the riots. They revisited nineteen nineteen through the Lens of drama. WBZ and the podcast production company and make believe association created a radio play a docudrama that brings us closer to how it felt to live through the riot and to reckon with its effects facts on Chicago today. Their interpretation really brings the history alive and so we wanted to share it with you. This is city on fire Chicago race riot. Nineteen nineteen our guide for the journey. Is Natalie more record Sunday. July twenty twenty seven a wooden rack on Lake Michigan. Oh I hate to see that evening. Sun God down. Hey to see the evening sun. Go Down Jerry me alone. I'm singing Kuzma sheet on that. This What was that Eugene? What wasn't a pay? Cut Tip me half an hour later. Twenty Ninth Street Beach Arwa. Is he the one quiets. Let's you throw a rock. You hit a Negro took a what the Hell Stephen doing here. All these Negroes. This is the light it did. I say quiet or you're all coming in jail. Look they say there was a Negro on a raft. A White Fellow True Rock Center. Was it you or not officer a lot of people out here a lot of rocks you know. It says it wasn't him why can't push me. There's a copy on the cop will in fact what led to this burst racial violence the spark that set the city blazing and nine hundred. Nineteen Chicago had a reputation as a place conflicts. Like that didn't happen. All Things considered the city was held to be pretty bad a black people. That's one reason. Why so many have been moving here steak street corner of twenty nine? My cousin Simba's down in Mississippi. Said up here Abbadi clambering rat. The streetcars where we played at work at the stockyards right away. Union fellows don't like having us around phase better than a field in Georgia zones as right and I don't know if the Mr Every whiteboard gummed along that's right well here's pastry. Calicoes drugstores newspaper Ice Cream. Can I tell you though the first time I took a streetcar and saw Colored People's touch elbows with wiping just held my breath. I thought any minute they will start something but nobody noticed. That's when I thought this is a real place of color people. She wasn't alone in thinking so in the years. Just just prior to nineteen nineteen more than fifty thousand. Black people moved here from the south seeking jobs and freedom but Chicago failed to accommodate the new arrivals bowls they were forced to live in a narrow section of the south side they called it the black belt the Odin rundown houses filled up quickly and kept filling and and so black families had no choice. They began moving into the white. Neighborhood's nextdoor eighth straight and Kenwood Avenue. Personally finally I have no prejudice against Negroes but speaking for the Homeowners Association you know they injure our investments. They heard our values look around. You see how carefully we keep up these houses. Now that doesn't mean we condone the the unfortunate incidents that we've been reading about humane remain the bombs. Excuse me this is IDA B Wells Barnett. The activists and journalists. You mean the Negro houses in white neighborhoods the ones bombed every few weeks. Since this migration started we our humane the Negro Children Kale. Well now I mean the gangs of hoodlums. Forgive me the Athletic Athletic Clubs Reading Negro workers going to win from the stock yards and no arrests for any of it. I could day tease. Good day title three weeks before the Riot Ida B Wells Barnett had written a letter to the editor of the Chicago Daily Tribune. It looks very much like Chicago. Kogo is trying to rival the south and it's race hatred against the Negro will the legal moral and civic forces of this town stand idly by and and take no action until further disaster has occurred. I implore Chicago to set the wheels of Justice in motion. Before it's too who late. I told you that day I told you all it was common on the day. Eugene Williams drowned it fast tracked move get off the streetcars shot. Yes yeah okay. Nobody move till we deal with the Negro. Yeah I see your Goddamn GAM scare running. Ah Move Get up anybody GONNA ANA come back. Why do you think about here that rob give it five minutes? You're going to get yourself shot. What kill you? Don't go looking for trouble.

"Or you would bury teeth to hide them from witches. And it's interesting because back then it was thought that if a witch were to get a hold of your teeth, the which would have power over you. It's kind of weird right? It is a little weird. So what's this? What's this original because we can kind of trace it back rights need, but it's really cool because it kind of incorporate some of the things we were just talking about. So it turns out that the tooth fairy the origins of the tooth fairy date back to eighteenth century, France. When a fairytale called oboe try to Casey proud LA bone Petit, sweaty, LA Bom, slowly. So he. Yeah. And what does that translate to, sir? It's like the good little mouse on the good little mouse. And it's the good little Casey on the case. So this is the story of Lebong petite, solely the good little mouse. There is a an evil king who imprisons a good Queen and the Queen is sort of like, a, you know, a Snow White type figure she can talk to the animals and all that. And so she gets a little mouse to help her out of this jam. That's right. That's right. And the mouse, luckily for her turns out, not to just be an intelligent plucky little rodent. Also, the mouths of secretly a fairy wants revealed to be a member of the fair folk or a the former mouse freeze the Queen and then knocks out all of the kings teeth. Yikes. At which point as naturally do fairytale logic. He hides these teeth under the kings pillow. Then eventually as the king killed. Oh. So that's not creepy at all. Well, we could do sure. Everyone listening. This has heard stories before about how much more more bidding graphic. The original version fairy tales, are you know, what I mean? So don't let the patina of Disney field. Good ary fool you about the true nature fairy tales, but that's fantastic. Great. So this goes back to what we're saying. Earlier about the cultural thing with rodents right rodents and teeth and the sacrifice of teeth offering up of teeth and Hillel eve. Exactly. Yeah. Get this by twenty fifty the world population should be ten billion people. That's a lot of people. Right. Yeah. You know, what those people are all going to need food. Yeah. Food among other things. We're going to need to grow our food supply by seventy percent by twenty fifty while. Well, here's something what of artificial intelligence could help right. Exactly, what farmers are already using it to help increase crop yields. So it makes sense, and they're using Watson and the IBM cloud to provide access to things like weather, data, analyzed satellite, imagery, and help them monitor soil moisture levels, which is tough to say. Yeah, that's really amazing do as the population grows. More food can be put on it's really pretty great. So let's put smart to work. Find out how at IBM dot com slash smart. So let's fast forward a little bit too in his specially pivotal article. That was written in nineteen o eight. That's right because one of the earliest mentions of the two fairy which that is not the language used in in the play, right? No, the cute little mouse fairy, right? Their teeth involved in the pillow, and that that kind of cements the whole mythology of the two three, but doesn't really have a name yet. So in a column in the Chicago daily Tribune in nineteen eight called household hints. Somebody writes in and suggests that I'm going to quote it. This is also cribbing this from his mental floss article that has a list of unexpected things about two very many refractory child will allow loose tooth to be removed. If he knows about the tooth fairy. If you take his little tooth and puts it under the pillow when he goes to bed the tooth fairy will come in the night and take it away and its place. We'll leave some. Little gift. And then you gotta play the comes out in the late twenties by Esther Watkins called the tooth fairy. Right. And that's history in this was a rerelease of that original French story, the good little mouse. It was in English. It was in nineteen twenty seven specifically. And this is where the mouse fairy character becomes cemented with some of the imagery that we've seen before the wings in particular. And they're they're scattered references afterwards in around this time to the to fairy in the first half of the twentieth century, but it doesn't really hit its boom. It's Malcolm glad well esque tipping point until after World War Two because one of the most popular stories in Collier's magazine in nineteen forty nine mentions the tooth fairy. And this, you know, this makes it a little bit more. Legitimate. But from what what we found? The two fairy didn't even enter an encyclopedia until what the late seventy s. Right. Yeah. Very modern an American creation. Yeah. It's much more recent than you might think. And according to some people who have researched the history of the two very such as Michael Hinxton over at salon. We can't overestimate the amount of influence corporations had over the creation of tooth fairy. So he said, so like, you know, the old story was Santa Claus before the Coca Cola Santa the appearance of Santa varied widely. He might be really skinny his costume differed. But once a soda company made this sort of pleasant. Ruddy-cheeked guy who's always wearing same costumes. Right. The these sort of codified this icon, I in the US and now around the world, that's how people think of Santa Claus often. So he puts the finger at a nother corporate entity that sort of solidified the idea of the tooth fairy. And you can find this articles called don't tell the kids the real history of the tooth fairy in this he delves into the work of perhaps the most influential most prominent to very scholar scholar

When there was a children's magazine called, Jack and Jill.

"In this next part of the interview, Tracy and Mary are going to talk about the early days of the space program in the United States along with the nine thousand nine, which is an international organization of women pilots and the first lady astronaut trainees, which was a real program that started out as a way to evaluate women's fitness to be astronauts in the nineteen sixties. So let's move on to the books about the space program. Tell us about your lady astronaut duality. Sure. So this is basically me kind of reimagining. Ray Bradbury's sort of space adventures, but women's entered. So it's it's set in the early early space program in in my case, it's in nineteen fifty two's before those the space program really that I drop an asteroid on the planet, which kicks off a space program fast and hard, and with an imperative to get off the planet, which means colonization, which means that women have to be involved. And it's also during the middle of the civil rights era. So sings progress, a little differently, a little more inclusively in in my version of history than they do in the real world. So at the very start of the book, I think almost on the first page, there's a reference to president Dewey. So obviously that's Thomas Dewey nowadays. Most famous for having been the subject of the Chicago daily Tribune's wrong. Headline of Dewey defeats Truman. When I first read the calculating stars, I sort of. Interpreted this as a nod to readers just saying heads up. This is a very different universe that we're looking at. But you're historical note at the end of the book makes reference to the fact that you needed to get the space race on a faster time line than it really happened in our world. So can you tell me a little more about that. Here. So there's two things to know about this one has to do with past Mary, making decisions that present Mary has to live with and that is that the lady astronaut of Mars, which is the novella or Novela that kicked this off was set in an existing story universe that I had written, which was based in a the first story. And this is called, we interrupt this broadcast which contains information that none of the characters in this universe will ever know. So you don't have to read it. But that story depended on punch cards and also on a programming error of rounding leap day and near pass for its strike. And that led me to nineteen fifty two. And the problem is we have no satellites in nineteen fifty two. So I went. Looking for, we'll why? And how would we do that? And that led me to having Julie come into office instead. So the thing about DUI is that he as opposed to Truman is that Dewey was very much an internationalist. He was very interested in collaboration, and he was also really against corruption and and very into officiency and the being very into officiency is is the the key twist here. So after World War Two, what happened was that Verner von Braun who had been the head of the the Nazi rocketry program was brought back to the United States with a bunch of his rocket scientists and they just cooled their heels. They were just not being used at all, and a lot of this was because Hello former Nazis. Well, you know, I mean, technically Nazis. So that that had a lot to do with why they were cooling their heels. There was a lot of effort to get a rocket up at this point and no one was leading, found Brown in his people do it, and everyone was trying to avoid the v. tube four launches because because of its. Military history, my reasoning and this is the kind of reasoning that one does when one is writing short story, which is that it's not very well researched, but I think it holds my reasoning is that Dewey would have probably said, you know what? This is more efficient. Let's just let this guy and his team use technology that we know how it works instead of trying to reinvent the wheel and then they can go on. And and so I think that it's plausible that that we could have gotten a new that we could have actually gotten rockets like with the technology that we had available. I am certain that we could have gotten rockets and satellites off the ground faster than we did. I think that having an office might have made that happen. I don't know for certain, but that that was the chain of reasoning that got me there. So the women airforce service pilots and the women computers from the early space program are both just a huge part of these books. So where did you. I learn about these women and what made you decide to write a book about them? So again, I mostly assumed that they would be there, but more specifically, the reason that I knew about the women computers was because of my dad. My dad is a programmer, and he started programming before computer. Science was a term and he started with punch cards, and he would talk about the punch-card girls which is apparently the term for them at the time, the punch-card girls and the the women computers. And and so it was just something that I was kind of peripheral aware of. And when I started looking at. Who would go into space because I wanted to write this lady astronaut story about this older astronaut, older
