"It's amazing, really. It's so so vital to where we are today. We'll be right back final segment with Christiana Haley author of a book I recommend highly. It's called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to see us Lewis's ransom trilogy. Somewhere on the socks, welcome back. I'm talking to Christiana Hale. Have you bought the book yet? It's called deeper heaven. A reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. We have to be clear. The ransom trilogy, a lot of what Lewis writes, particularly ransom trilogy, this is not for simple folk. This is some heavy stuff, it's some deep stuff. Some of it's challenging. So it needs a guide and you have been that guide and you are that guide in this book deeper heaven. Christiana Hale, what are you doing when you're not talking about this new book? I mean, you teach junior high, really? I do, I do. Yes, Latin and English. So easy subjects, but yeah. No, it is a fun, it is a fun age. It's challenging. Every time I say I teach junior high, you know, people react different ways. But it is a challenging age, but I love teaching that age. It's a really formulative period. I think in our maturation and they're just excited and interested in everything. So it keeps me on my toes, asking lots of answering lots of random questions, never quite know what a 13 year old is going to ask you today, so. Right. But yeah, I love it. And it really is, I mean, it's an extension of what I love in other areas. So I love research and writing. And so teaching, teaching kids all day, it just basically is a captive audience. They literally can not leave that I get to just talk to all day about the things I like. It's just amazing. Now are you working? Do you do other writing? I think you do, right? You've written other books, so you're working on other books. What else is happening? I was writing yeah, I am working on other books. So I just finished my master's of fine arts in creative writing. So I it's funny. It is funny to me if you had told me back when I was a teenager that my first book was going to be a non fiction guide to C. S. Lewis. I probably would have laughed at you because as many high schoolers, I loved writing novels. I wrote fiction. I always, I always wanted to be a writer, but I was primarily interested in telling stories and writing fiction. And so it still makes me laugh sometimes that this is the trajectory that my life has taken. But I am still, I have not abandoned writing fiction. So I am still, I am working on a novel currently. It's still in process of being drafted various drafts. So we'll see what happens and I'm still studying Lewis still working on research there. There's potentially another Lewis book coming out in the future. Down the road, but I'm one aspect. So we have faces. Oh my goodness. So we have faces. Wow. Another heavy one. So that would probably be a little ways down the road because I'm in research mode right now, which takes that's the bulk of my writing process is the research mode, and then got to get going on writing. So it's going to be down the roadways, but that's the other one that gets people scratching their heads, I feel. It's another one that people either love it or hate it, and or confused by it, and have questions. And it's another one that I absolutely love and think is one of his best fictional. There's no doubt that. Until we have faces are literary masterpieces. There's no question about it. Okay, just seconds left. What's the roughly the setting of this fiction this work of fiction that you're working on? Thank you. So fantastical realism, I would say, so it's set in the current time set in the Pacific Northwest because that's what I know and there's a witch and there's dragons and lots of adventure. So it's pretty fun. Unbelievable. And it's set in the present. Crazy. It is crazy. Well, look, it's just a delight to get to know you and your work. The book deeper heaven is just a wonderful achievement and it is genuinely important and I know that many people will be introduced to Louis ransom trilogy as a result of your having written this book deeper heaven. So Christianity hill,.

"Okay, so what are the ideas in the abolition of Manhattan? Yes, and one of the really key factors that Lewis talks about is actually in abolished demand is actually a medieval concept, which is the medieval concept of a man, a whole man being made up of three parts, the head, the chest, and the stomach, and that those three elements represent reason passion or appetite and the third element, which is the chest, which is kind of the seat of stable emotion or stable sentiment, and it's that element that kind of balances the other two. So what Lewis and this is important to Lewis's primary issue with the reigning worldview and that he saw coming out, especially in education, which is that we're not actually educating the entire man in our education. We're trying to, in his time, focus on either just pure rationality, right? Pure reason logic alone, science. You could say, or we're giving way to animal appetite. And with no reigning reigning emotion over that, right? And so the chest, the seat of the emotions, is what balances out those other two and actually creates a hole an entire person, and that our education is should be aimed at creating whole and entire people rather than just almost mechanical robots that just have a set of data points programmed into their brains. And so that is actually the kind of the key element that comes out in that he is strength. With the NICE, which is the organization that ransom in his group is fighting against, is that they're basically trying to strip humanity of everything that really makes it human. And just reduce it down to atoms and just the pure physical side of things. And it's I mean, it corresponds to where we are today, so dramatically, it's just amazing to me, even the idea that this place is called NICE nice. Be nice. But being nice is not the same as being good. And now the chapter, I think, in abolition of man that we're referring to is called men without chests. But boy oh boy, folks. Grab it, read it. We'll be back continuing our conversation with Christiana Hale her book is deeper heaven. She always loves to swim with her. Baby she loves. Living. So I'd like to know where welcome back we're talking to Christiana Hale, the book is deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis ransom trilogy. So we were just talking Christiana about the short book, the important book, the abolition of man, which in many ways prepares you to read that hideous strength. And it's so fascinating to me that Louis was very much a prophet, you know, not in the mystical sense, although James como argues that in some ways he had to be a prophet of the mystical census, because he wrote about things that were anyway. They were not just of the head. But that chapter we just referenced men without chess. I mean, that's sort of sums up everything about what's wrong with where we are today. And I think it can help a lot of people understand what's wrong, 'cause I think a lot of people don't know how to process what's happening in the world today. And I think Lewis just magnificently does that. So talk a little bit more about that idea of men without chess. Because it's really at the heart, no pun intended of everything that we're dealing with. Yes, and so obviously we have the two extremes, right? There's the two extremes. If you don't have the chest or the middle element, which is that balancing, you can almost say balancing or raining element. You're either going to give way to just pure logic and reason, which is going to basically cut you off from any emotional emotion whether it's stable or otherwise. You have that cold logic scientific side. And then on the other side, you have the other ditch, which is being enslaved to your just your desires. Your appetite. And so then you have no reigning philosophy whatsoever. It's just whatever feels good, whatever you want, which we can see.

"Folks, I'm talking to the author of deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis ransom trilogy. A lot of people don't know anything about C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. Maybe they heard of the space trilogy, which is actually the ransom trilogy. What is your sense? Because you've written, of course, Christiana, a whole book about this. You've devoted years to this now. But what is your sense as you talk to people or as people interview about this book of what people know about these books or for many people is this something that they've just never heard of? So I find a mix generally the people I talk to have heard of them at least have heard of them and so many though have the response is I tried to read them once. And they didn't make it very far. Or but it's funny because I do find a mixed mixed bag. Some people love as a science planet. They zip through it and they loved it. And then lander is what got them. They couldn't make it through peril and they really don't care for the first two, but they love that he is strength. And actually, surprising number of people that read that had you strength on its own. As a stand-alone book, which I kind of understand why I mean we've already mentioned how it's very prophetic in a lot of ways. It's very pertinent. It says as applicable today as it was when it was written if not more so. And so and I think people hear that about it and then go read it and they pick it up and they just read that book rather than reading the trilogy as a whole. But even those among those people, Merlin is a Berlin catches people up a lot. So I feel like I'm hearing more and more people that at least have heard of the books, but not as many that have read the whole trilogy or love the whole trilogy equally. So that's part, again, part of the reason for my book, reasoning behind it is to present it as I do think that this trilogy is a whole. I think the books are each very different, but that they hang together and work together as a whole trilogy and that they're important to be read in that way as an entire trajectory trajectory to the three books that makes a lot of sense and actually reveals even more of what Lewis was trying to do. When I think of that hideous strength the third of these books in the longest, right? It feels to me like a fictional way for Lewis of dealing with the ideas in the abolition of man. Yes. Yeah, and he actually says that in the preface, I believe. He says. I don't remember that. I got that right. He does. Yeah, he says, this is a basically a fictional treatment of the ideas that I expressed in my essay abolition of man. So if you want to go read that, you should. Oh, that's hilarious. I mean, I literally, I mean, it's been many years since I've read any of those books, but it makes sense. And so, I mean, maybe sum up if you can, the concept of the abolition of 'cause that's a short book, and it's a very important book. My goodness. It's very short, very important. Do you remember when Lewis wrote the abolition of man because I don't? So before it would be before actually have I realized I have my book right here and it has an appendix in it with the dates of Lewis's. Oh, that's very cool. So I realized that I had that here and I should have looked at it before. So he published the abolition of man in 1943 and that he is strength came out in 45. So a couple years. Later. And what makes perfect sense, doesn't it? That's absolutely that makes perfect sense..

"But talk about what he finds on Mars because this points to the literary genius of Lewis to create a world like a I mean, it's a lot like what Tolkien does in a way, just create another world so convincingly, but so talk briefly about what he finds, what this ransom character finds when he gets to Mars. Yes, the fascinating thing about what he finds on Mars is you. He encounters three species. You could say of creature on Mars. They are sentient sentient beings that are not human. And the fascinating thing that he does there is that it's actually an unfallen planet that is yet affected by the fall of man. So there's this kind of odd juxtaposition of ransom of fallen human being interacting with these sentient intelligent beings that are not human and are unfallen and have no real conception of nature. And so it really leads to a series of fascinating conversations, which is something that I don't think you could have in the same way if it was set on earth, for example, or if Lewis was having ransom, sorry, it was having these conversations with another man by putting out another planet by introducing these creatures, he has all these very fascinating intellectual and philosophical theological questions that come out that don't, for some reason, don't bore the reader, even though there's tapes, it can be pages of just conversation, same thing in paril andra, even more so I would say, and yet it's just fascinating because it's because of the backdrop and the setting and the nature of his conversation partner that they are having these conversations that we would never have. And yet Lewis geniously unravels certain questions that we do have. And we do struggle with, and yet he can address them in a very unique way, because ransom is talking to what we might call an alien, right? It's a foreign foreign species foreign foreign conversational partner. And so that's one of the brilliant things I think that he does in both sides. That's what reveals like the level of his genius. It's her freaky level of genius to be able to pull this off. When we come back, Christiana Hale is going to pronounce the names of these creatures because I can't. We'll be right back. Great. Welcome back, I'm talking to Christiana Hale, Hale, the book is called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. Okay, so in the first book, out of the silent planet, this ransom figure goes to Mars, ostensibly, Mars. But what's so interesting is he discovers, you know, they're not our version of Martians. When we think of Martians, our fictitious version of Martians, we think of a certain thing. In a way that world hadn't been established yet, that fictional world that we all kind of live in and where we think Martians look like this or whatever. So what are these three creatures, these types of creatures that he encounters on his version of Mars? Yeah, so there's the three types, there's the rasa. And again, I'm going to attempt to pronounce these correct. Everyone is impossible. Every pronunciation. So the first one is what's it again? And they're like gigantic gerbils or something. Yes, or beaver type. I can imagine them as beaver types, some sort of mammal mammal type of creature. Okay. Okay, keep going. And then we have the swords. The creepy is to pronounce the story freaked me out when I first read about it. Yeah, they did they're kind of bird like and they're huge. They're giant gigantic and they're kind of almost winged and bird like and then getting their menacing. You don't know. I mean, that's what's so creepy about these books is that you could see Lewis, he has the ability to write about evil and to scare you. So these are not good books for little kids or anything. He's one and runs from it. Sore. He actually sees one and that's one of the things that sets him running away 'cause he sees it and he's just terrified by it. But then he encounters the harasser, which are a lot less intimidating at first. And he gets to know them, he actually lives with them for a while. So then by the time he actually meets a sore and again and has interaction with it, he still intimidated and terrified in a way, but he understands it. He at least understands what he's seeing. And is able to interact with and have conversations with. Now I dare you to try to pronounce the third kind of creature on Mars. I think it's syphilis. Gesundheit, say it again. Yeah. Sifu tricky. 5th little tricky, 5th trip. How I say it. Christiana, let's get serious. No, I've actually, when I read that word, I was like, there's literally no way to pronounce this, but you think it's what again? So I think it's the full tricky. So there's a P, the problem is there's a PF. He starts out with a PF, but the P has got to be silent. There's no way. I think. I got a bad case of fizzle tricky. I can't come. Okay, so the three creatures are the Soren's, the harasser and the 5th little tricky. And I don't remember what are the 5th full tricky look like? So they're almost, he mentions dwarves, but then he also, I think, mentions frogs. So he's describing them. So they're very small. They're short squat and close to the ground. They are the ones that work primarily with their hands, so they create create things they're kind of like the miners, the makers, and when ransom in the book encounters one, he's actually carving a carving a statue of ransom. Which is realizing a statue of ransom. And at first he doesn't recognize it as a statue of himself because it looks so weird to him. It looks because he's seeing it through the fulfill tricks eyes, right? He's seeing, oh, this is what I look like to them. And it's so foreign to him. He doesn't actually realize it's him at first. And then he's also carving a map of the cosmos, which is really fascinating, because that's where we see that Lewis in the trilogy is not using the medieval order of the planets. He's actually using our solar system in terms of the arrangement. Holy cow. Now we're going to a break. That's the end of our one, but we've got plenty more with Christiana Hale and our two. The book folks, deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. We'll be right back. The first person to survive Alzheimer's disease is out there.

"All over the place across the trilogy. Now, I'm a little surprised I don't remember that. Can you fresh my memory? Because I don't remember that he was that it figured somehow in his conversion. Can you remember any details? Yes, so prior to his conversion he read the entire thing in Italian in the original Italian, of course, with a friend. And he wrote some letters about it back and forth with his friend. Basically, seeing that it reaches heights of poetry that poetry has never reached before and probably never will again. It just gave him, it gave him this kind of transcendent experience. And he talks about in surprise by joy about reading fantasies by George McDonald and how that gave him this concept of the holy and he says something similar in a letter about Dante's divine comedy as well, specifically paradiso, which is the third part of Dante's divine comedy. He uses kind of similar language when talking about that, that it introduced something to him that basically made him long for something that he didn't really have words for. Which he comes to find out is Christ is the gospel in his conversion. So he read it significantly enough before his conversion, but you can see when he talks about it, that it's pushing him that direction. That's amazing. That's just not something that I remember having heard before. And I feel pretty familiar with Louis's. So I'm surprised to hear that, but it makes perfect sense. We'll be right back. Final segment for today with Christiana Hale, that's and the book is deeper, heaven will be right back. Folks, welcome back, final segment for today with Christiana Hale will continue the conversation either tomorrow or another day. But the book is deeper heaven, a guide to C. S. Lewis ransom trilogy. So we were just talking about the plot of Pearland, the middle book. If you can in two minutes, I dare you to sum up the plot of the third book. We'll talk about that as we continue the conversation. But just since we have a couple of minutes left, how in the world do you describe the final book in the trilogy titled that hideous strength? Yeah, that one, that stumps people, right? The first two, you can kind of see, okay, they're interplanetary, traveling to other planets. Maybe a little more sci-fi effect here and there. But that third book, you know, it stays on earth. There's no planetary travel at least by men that they don't travel in a spaceship or anything in the third book. So, and it's very fascinating book because the main characters at least at ransom himself and the characters he surrounds himself with don't actually make the final the final stand, right? We have other characters that kind of do that for them. So it really is the culmination of the first two books we have. I would describe it as a collision of world views. It's a collision of philosophies that have come to fruition. The collision of the materialist reductionist worldview that drives this pseudoscience. I mean, it starts out science, but ends in basically demon worship, right? And possession in the end. Versus the, I would say, incarnation list Christians. You can say, right? So you have this conflict that comes to a head where you have the society on the one hand and ICE that is trying to push their agenda and it's very evil, demonic agenda. And then you have the group surrounding ransom who's taking a stand against that against that. So it's this and what's.

"So there's a lot of talking for a while, just trying to feel another out, understand each other. And then Weston, who was one of the baddies from the first book, comes back to Paris landra, but we find out later that he has been possessed by either a devil or the devil, it's somewhat ambiguous, and he's been possessed. He's basically not Weston anymore. And so ransom starts calling him the unmanned in his mind. Look, that is so creepy. It is the unmanned, this character is one of the creepiest characters in the history of literature and Lewis is such a genius for being able to create this character, who is effectively possessed. So he's like a talking corpse. It's like a nightmare. And it's so brilliant. So he is sent Weston, who is evil to begin with, but now he's given himself over to evil. So he is a complete carrier of evil. He is this truly evil. And Lewis calls him the unmanned, which is just creepy. It's like he's a man who's not a man. He's a cadet man talking. Exactly. And yeah, so I think I agree with you. He's one of the creepiest creepiest characters and Lewis does an excellent job writing that in that way. And then so he is trying to basically he's acting like the Satan of that unfallen. If we see Pearland as Garden of Eden and the green lady is the eve of that world, the unmanned is coming in as the Satan of that world trying to tempt her to disobey the one command that has been given, which is to so there's all these floating islands and then there's the fixed land, which is the land that doesn't float. It doesn't move. And the command has been given that they are not to spend the night on the fixed land. So you can visit it, but they can't spend the night there. That's the one command. And his whole purpose is to try to get her to disobey that command. So to cause the fall of that world. So it's like a retelling of Paradise lost. It's a retelling of the first few chapters of genesis in another world. I mean, it's so amazingly done. It's brilliant, but it's brilliantly done. And that's pair of land or the second book. We'll be right back. We're talking to the author of deeper heaven, Christiana Hale, will be right back. So many things I could have known the clouds got in my. Welcome back folks, the book is deeper, heaven, a reader's guide to see us Lewis ransom trilogy, the author Christiana, Hale, is my guest. And Christianity, this stuff is so deep. I hope people are tracking because there's so much to this. And that's why your book is so wonderful because it's just a really perfect introduction in a way to this world here. But so you were just recounting the plot of Pearland or the second book. And it's basically a retelling of the story of the fall, except in this story, the Satan figure does not succeed in tempting the eve of that world. And the whole book is about this, I mean, you talk about epic. It's an epic poem. It's like Paradise lost, except it's kind of weird because Milton retold the story that he got. Lewis invents a story in a whole other world and then has to figure out. So what would that look like if the Satan figure doesn't succeed? What would that battle look like? I mean, it's just it's so rich and it's just theologically rich. It's philosophically rich and it's also an exciting story. That's pretty tough to pull off, but he seems to have pulled it off, pulled it off. Somehow he does. Yes. I mean, I think some people think it's his greatest book, it certainly, if not his great, I think it's probably his greatest book. But so say more about this, he just mentioned floating islands. I mean, that alone, Lewis creates a world that you keep bumping into things, you think, how did he think of this? What a brilliant idea floating island. There are all these floating islands. And so you said that the number one thing, the only thing that God basically forbids this Adam and Eve from doing is spending the night on the fixed land. So like that's the one command and then you have this unmanned figure trying to really seduce this woman into the sin of disobeying that. And that's where ransom kind of comes in to do battle with this Satan figure. Yes, and it's really fascinating to me the more you the more I read that book to the methods that the unmanned state and figure uses to try to sway the green lady to listening to him to disobey disobey. Because if you've read Paradise lost and have that comparison kind of in your head, it's very interesting to see how Lewis presents it in a different way. So vanity comes into play in both of them. So in Milton's Paradise lost, there's this sort of the devil in that story is kind of using you playing to eve's vanity. There, it's a little bit more almost physical vanity, right? Showing her how beautiful she is and Milton kind of plays that up. The unmanned in peril andra tries to do that, actually. He dresses her up and shows her her reflection, but she doesn't, it doesn't really move her. Very much, he's playing on her emotional vanity. So trying to get her to see how sacrifice she could basically is making a sacrifice for the good of her children and kind of this playing up she will be this noble kind of matriarch be looked up to and it's for your future children basically trying to trying to play up the vanity in her in herself, not externally, but internally. And so that's a fascinating comparison. The more that you dig into into Milton and Lewis and Lewis even wrote, he wrote about Milton frequently. He wrote a wonderful little essay called preface to Paradise loss lost longer than an es. It's a few chapters long. It's just excellent and really unpacks a lot of what he thought about Milton and that comes into play and do you remember when he wrote preface the Paradise lost because I remember reading that and boy, that's brilliant. But that gives you some insight into his thinking on all this stuff. But I don't remember. I don't remember exact year if I had to say I would say it was before the ransom trilogy was written, that would be my guess, but I don't know an exact year. Yeah, I was going to say, did it help him begin thinking about these things, but we don't know. On the break, maybe we'll look that up because it is so clear when you read perelandra that it's an analog to Paradise lost and that he, I keep saying that if we lived in the same world, it would be taught Paradise lost and peril Android would be taught together like in a survey course of western lit because they correspond to each other so dramatically, at least that's my theory. Yes, yes, they do. As well as purgatorio from Dante. Dante's divine comedy too. Purgatorio. Yes. Yeah, I mean, now do you teach Dante also? I don't currently, 'cause I teach literature to junior high students, so they're a little purgatory is a little bit maybe beyond them at the moment. But I mean, it was one of the divine comedy was one of Lewis's favorite favorite. If not his favorite. He doesn't always call favorites, but he has the highest praise for Dante's divine comedy. It was a really key part of his conversion, in fact, as well. And so he references Dante.

A Deeper Look at C.S. Lewis' Space Trilogy With Christiana Hale

"To familiarize the audience with the plot of these three books, the first book is out of the silent planet, the second book is peril andra and the third book is that hideous strength. That's the ransom trilogy, but talk about the general plot. What is this about? Why is it called the ransom trilogy? Yes. So I think the first book, Lewis intended, I think, at the beginning to actually only write a single book. This happened frequently for him, where he would kind of get sidetracked, and it would turn into turned into something bigger than he may be initially intended it to. And I would argue that the first book is almost a kind of a there and back again, almost like The Hobbit story. We have our main character who inadvertently stumbles upon these men who are trying to abduct a boy to take into Mars to sacrifice him to the Martians. So they think the natives require sacrifice. And so they're trying to abduct this boy. He intervenes. He ends up getting kidnapped in the boy's place. And so he ends up taking to Mars and their spaceship and basically the rest of the book is him trying to find his way and figure out how to get back. Okay, this is the first in the book called out of the silent book out of the silence. When ransom who's appropriately named because he's a type of Christ and also he goes in the place of the boy who these evil characters are trying to kidnap to take to Mars as a sacrifice or whatever. So that's the first book. And that was written what? 39. When was that written? I believe so I am really, really bad at memorizing dates. So I believe it was round end of end of yes, so 39 sounds right. Might have been 40 right around there. And in a funny way, I mean, this is at the beginning of science fiction. I mean, Lewis, you know, there was some science fiction H.G. Wells or whatever. But Lewis is writing its fantasy, it's a kind of science fiction, but it's more than that. It's very literary. And so

"Necessary. This is, I mean, there's so much to it. I guess maybe the simplest place to start is when and your book touches on this, but it's not about this, but the idea that Michael ward writes about that the 7 Narnia chronicles that every one of them corresponds to one of these medieval planets. So obviously the line, the witch and the wardrobe, corresponds to Jupiter because it's about king, and then you get this idea of why his father Christmas in there. Well, he's this Jupiter, jovial, kingly, happy character, because when we use phrases like we say, somebody's jovial, that's what it means, prince Caspian has this Mars Marshall warring thing. Like, there are all these personalities. I guess Venus is the perfect example. I mean, talk about Venus and Mars, for example. So people can get some idea or about or about the sun because I want people to grasp this idea. When you talk about the personalities of these planets, it's almost like a poetic conceit, right? Yes, it's almost, it's almost like creating an entire world around a single theme. Around a certain note that you're trying to hit. And these planetary personalities kind of involve all of this imagery, poetry, atmosphere, they're kind of all wrapped up into together, and it's hard to tease them out, which is why I think doctor Michael ward's thesis is so brilliant and the way that he teases that out from the chronicles of Narnia, the more you read them, the more you see it. And the more it makes sense and kind of comes into alignment. So for example, I personally love the voyage of the dawn treader. That's one of my favorites. And it's the solar book or the book associated with the sun. And I mean, that one you see very clearly just in the title, right? You have the dawn treader. There's the sun, sun in the title, and they're heading east. They're trying to find their heading towards the sun throughout the entire book. But then as you continue to dive even deeper, you have little details like the sun's metal is gold, and they come to that one island where the water turns things to gold and gold is a theme. You have dragons, Apollo, the sun God in Greek mythology is associated with dragon slang. One of his names is Apollo Sauron tonos, which means killer of the dragon. And so there's the whole story with him in the python, which some argue is a dragon. So there's dragons all over the place, a dragon on the prow of the boat. The dragon, of course, that eustace turns into the dragon they find on the island, the sea dragon, the sea monster, there's dragons all over the place as well, which you might think, how does that connect to the sun, but as you dig more deeply into this personality, you can see how it how it connects. And I think the key to say is so that people don't get scared away. It doesn't matter if you get all this stuff. That's the beauty of it, is that even if you don't get any of this stuff and you just read these books, what they are, they're magnificent. But then when you get into these things and understand it more, it just gets deeper and deeper. We'll be right back with Christiana Hale, the new book is called deeper heaven. Make like a mister milk toast you'll get shut out. Folks welcome back. I'm talking to the author of deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis ransom trilogy, her name is Christiana Hale, Christiana..

"Folks welcome back, I'm talking to Christiana Hale, who has written a new book, a wonderful book called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. Okay, so first book ransom goes to Mars, comes back second book, peril andra. So tell the plot roughly of that book because it's pretty amazing. So yes, Pearland or I would have to say, honestly, I hate being asked which one's my favorite. But when forced, I have to say Pearland, because that I just, I love that book. It is funny, though, because the plot is very simple, actually. It's a very simple plot, and there's a lot of conversation and talking and Lewis doing what he does, which is unraveling really deep and difficult theological and philosophical issues in conversations between his characters in a way that just puts it puts it in a light that you never had considered it before. So the plot very simply is that Lewis because of his adventures in the first book because primarily of his ability to speak the language. You mean ransom he, I'm sorry, I said I say Louis. I get them confused also because you know you feel like ransom's a lot like Lewis. Thank you. Ransom. And then Lewis shows up though, too. That's the other thing is Lewis as a character shows up in the book actually at the beginning of par lander. He goes to visit ransom the character. So then you have Lewis the author, Lewis, the character and ransom, who was basically Louis the author. So it gets very complicated. But ransom is sent on a mission to pair landra primarily again mainly just because he can speak the language. So he knows the language he can speak to the people who live there on Paris landra. And so they send him there because there's going to be a danger that he wasn't about. When you say they send him there. No, you are. These are these young beings. These are good guys. The el dilla. Is that what they're called? The higher level. So yeah, these are these angelic beings. And there's clear correspondence, you know, that Louis is not inventing. These are basically angels, but he calls them, so you're saying they send ransom to Venus because he can speak old solar. I don't remember, did they know what his mission is? Does he stumble on the mission? He doesn't know what his mission is. So he doesn't know he doesn't know what it is. And he even he makes a comment because in the beginning he's talking to Lewis the character. So Lewis inserts himself into the story as a character who goes to visit ransom and ransom is explaining to that character what his mission is. And he says, I don't really know what it's going to be. They haven't told me, I don't know. And he says something like, there are some missions for which it's better. One knows less. Basically, the less one knows about one's one's mission, the better. So in that sense, I talk about this in my book, is that I feel like ransom has more of a prophetic role in this in this book. See, he's being sent on a mission. He doesn't always know what exactly he's going to do. So he's trusting that he will be given the right words to say that he'll be given the insight to know what it is he is to do at the appropriate time, which is very much a prophetic sort of role that he has. So he goes to Venus and then he ends up meeting the green lady on Venus, who she's not human, but she's very humanoid and in her, in her well, she's like the E screen. And it's like she's adamant that characters of Venus, but Louis calls her the green lady and then she's the what? She's the queen of that world and the king of that world, the atom of that world is her husband or whatever. So but yeah, so this character ran some meets this green lady. Yes, and basically from that point on, I mean, they have a lot of conversations..

"809 7 8 three O 5 7 809 7 8 three O 5 7. Somewhere. On the scene and if I was walking back I'm talking to Christiana Hale, who hails different spelling from Idaho. She's in Idaho now. I am not an Idaho. I want to be very clear. The book that she has written and it is wonderful. It's called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. So Christiana, C. S. Lewis wrote so much. Some people know him from the screwtape letters. Many people know the Narnia chronicles and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Very few people know that he wrote a an absolutely spectacular trilogy of novels for adults, often called the ransom trilogy. They are literarily magnificent and there's just, they're full of so much stuff, so much genius, so many levels. But one level, which is vital in which you write about in your book, which you clarify, is this thing called the medieval cosmology. So let's just break it down for the audience. The ancients believed, and the medieval world believed that the earth is at the center, now we now know that's not true, but it kind of doesn't matter. They believe the earth is at the center. And then they could see with the naked eye before telescopes, they could see the sun, the moon, and mercury, Mars, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter. That's it. Right? So those were the medieval planets. And when you talk about medieval cosmology, first, that's what you're talking about, correct? Yes, yes, correct. So the 7 planets of their cosmology. But beyond that, they saw the planet says having very distinct personalities too, which is something that's very foreign to us. We just look up and we see them and they're pretty in the night sky and they're bright. So give us an example of what we mean by that. So for example, Jupiter, I would argue they would see as one of the most important planets. And so in the system. So he is and I say he because it's very connected to the Roman God Jupiter after whom it's named. But they would see him as the king of the planets. So as Jupiter is the king of the Roman gods, and so connected with kingly Ness and all of the all of the qualities that are associated with what we think of a king being like you can see also they could see with the naked, well, not quite with the naked eye, but as rudimentary telescopes were developed, they could see the spot in Jupiter's side. So he's the wounded king, which then draws connections to Christ, obviously, on the cross, his side was pierced. And so they're comes into all of these, then theological connotations as well. And so not that they would see the plant's planets as being distinct from the planetary being. So there's some conflicting accounts Lewis uses the one where they think of the planet itself, physical planet as being almost like a mode of transportation for an angelic being that is also the planet and it's actually necessary..

"So when we say medieval cosmology, we're just talking about how medieval man saw the arrangement of the universe of the cosmos, which was different from we had the copernican revolution where most people are familiar with that sort of shift from a earth centric geocentric arrangement to a solar system, having the sun at the center. But beyond just the arrangement in the medieval conception of the cosmos, there were actual imaginative effects they had a very peculiar view of more than just, oh, we're just switching the order around, but that that order actually has an effect on the way you look at humanity and the man's place in the cosmos. So it has anthropological effects as well. There's all sorts of in philosophical and theological effects. So when we say medieval cosmology, you could simply say, well, it's just the arrangement of the cosmos, but it actually has downstream effects on the way they saw the entire world. When we come back, I want to break this down because I still think it sounds scary to most people. And it's not. It's actually fascinating and beautiful and simple, but the 32nd version really is just that the medieval world, CES Lewis was a medievalist. We forget that he was an expert on the medieval world and saw things through that lens and arranged a lot of what he wrote with reference to that, but didn't say that he was doing. He just kind of did it and then years later, people like Christiana Hale and others really kind of fare at this out and he wrote, this is all these other levels. So we're going to get into that when we come back. I'm speaking to Christiana Hale. The book is deeper heaven.

How Did Christiana Hale Come to Write Her New Book 'Deeper Heaven'?

"I am extraordinarily excited to speak to my next guest because she has written a genuinely magnificent book on one of the most important subjects to me in the world C. S. Lewis. And so let me say first of all, her name is Christiana Hale, she hails spelled differently from Idaho. She is in Idaho right now. Just so you understand, while she was writing this book, she also teaches Latin and English to junior high school students, try to take that in ladies and gentlemen. At a classical Christian school, I am just thrilled to meet her and to talk to her about her brand new book. It's called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. Christian Hale welcome to the Arctic show. Thank you so much for having me. Well, listen, we try to get you in the studio and our schedule was all screwed up. But I just want to say, when I read this book, I was just so thrilled because I love C. S. Lewis so much. And the ransom trilogy, the space trilogy, whatever it's called many, many people are not familiar with it. And that, of course, needs to change. And books like yours will help to I'm already helping it is helping to change that. Your book is helping to change that. So before we get into the book deeper heaven, I just have to ask you about yourself. How does a very young woman like yourself come to write a magnificent volume on C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy? How did this happen? How did you where did you grow up? How did you happen? What's going on? Yeah. Sometimes I ask myself how it happened because it still surprises me at times that this is where life has taken me. But I grew up on C. S. Lewis primarily the chronicles of Narnia as many of us did. So a very young age. I was introduced in Narnia and just fell in love with those books. And it wasn't till I was probably in high school that I realized there's a lot more to see us Louis than just a children's fiction author. In fact, that was very small part of his life and his calling and what he did. So I remember reading or starting to read the ransom trilogy at a young age and I actually quite frankly didn't like it. I didn't get into it really. I couldn't understand it. But then I attended new Saint Andrew's college in Moscow Idaho and as a freshman rhetoric class, we had to read the ransom trilogy and at that point with a teacher who delve deeper into the especially the medieval cosmology side of things, which I think will probably talk about later. That just captured my imagination.

"I'm talking both ours today with Christiana Hale, the author of a new book called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy because a guide to C. S. Lewis ransom trilogy did not exist and needed to be written and Christiana Hale wrote it. And here's the good news, I actually read the whole book, which I rarely get to do. And it is a wonderful guide to see if Lewis is random. I'm just so grateful to you, Christiana for writing this book because as you said before, nothing like it existed, and people are intimidated by the world of Lewis's ransom trilogy because it seems deep and intimidating and stuff. It's really not. Because it works on so many levels. But your book serves as a just a wonderful introduction. So we were just talking about, so the first book is a trip to Mars, the second book is a trip to Venus, the third book is called that hideous strength, which is a really bizarre book that kind of almost stands on its own. But let's just kind of keep going with the plot, the overview of these three books. So the first book, this guy ran some, he doesn't know what he's getting into, right? Like he's a guy that's just kind of on a walking tour and he kind of stumbles on this dark situation with these people, he's nefarious scientists wanting to kidnap this boy and take him to Mars to sacrifice him. And so he sort of intervenes. And so he inadvertently finds himself going to Mars. Yes, that was right. In the first book. And then if we're moving on to the second book, in the second book, it's less accidental. It's more on purpose. And what's fascinating to me is that the whole reason the second book happens, though, is because of the first book. And this is Louis's genius, is that this first book was a total accident, ransom just stumbled, stumbled into this situation, because of this kidnapping because he was taken to Mars. The important thing that happens is that ransom was a philologist, meaning he studied languages, and being taken Mars, he was fascinated by the fact that these creatures are speaking a different language.

Alvin, you ready? Are you ready? The show has just begun. And if you know anything about C. S. Lewis, my guest today, ladies and gentlemen, I don't want to brag when she's on the program. So I will just say now this very young woman has written a spectacular book about C. S. Lewis, Christiana Hale is her name. She will be my guest. I believe in both ours today. In our two, at the beginning of our two, we have a segment with Sean Voight. We spoke to him yesterday. We will speak to him again today just for the first segment of our two. He had his group on the steps of the Supreme Court. Yes, very exciting. I also should mention today, I voted. I did too. Now, never tell people how you vote. No. But I will tell you for whom I voted. Andrew Giuliani governor. Now, there are many people who, I mean, if you don't vote, ladies and gentlemen, don't complain or better yet move to a country where they don't let you vote because it is such a privilege to vote. So I voted this morning and I, and when I went into the voting thing, this woman said, do you have a mask, sir? I said no. Who would you like a man? No thank you. I don't need a mask. Yeah. I'm going to like, I could do a back flip. People are, hey, don't get me started. Okay. I was in voting at 6 30 this morning. I walked in and I said, hey, I came to beat the crowd and they're all sitting there like nobody else was there, you know? And they were surprised because they had to give me the Republican form. It's like they blew the dust off of it. I said, am I the only Republican? It's so funny. It's so funny. All right, we should mention this. Today is the 28th yesterday was my birthday today. We have two days left. New traumatic dot com, they're giving 30% off only in June. So, normally, you go to nutrimetics dot com, use the code Eric. You get 20% off everything. And half of their profits go to third world missions. What's not to like.

"Before i get to my last question here. Yeah i just want to share. That is very understandable to look at climate change and you begin to just begin to fathom the complexity of it. It's very very understandable digital feel grief and loss and frankly hopelessness. This is so big so large. And what can i do abided. I'm just you know one little person here. I cannot do anything about it. And i'm concerned about that. Because that climate grief is Is real and an honestly. It hits me at least once every day. But here's the trick. If we stay in that grief and in that sense of loss in in that sense of hopelessness then we go down a spiral very dark. Spiral spirals down and is not good for our for ourselves for our mental health. And it certainly doesn't help us get out of this so without minimizing the sense of loss and grief without minimizing that precisely because we're aware about loss and damage the causing precisely because of that we have to turn around and go nobly therefore i'm going to do something and my suggestion is just pick one thing. One thing that you were going to do whether that is going out there and planting trees with that is being more careful with your recycling whether that is sure that you're buying green green energy whether that is being much more mindful of unnecessary energy waste at several cetera. Just pick one thing and understand that you are contributing to the solution and do it very intentionally not just absent minded to vary intentionally so because it is actually by having specific actions that we begin to feel to get out of our disenfranchisement and into a sense of agency. So this is my last question man. I'm so glad that we had this conversation. Those it's gonna be a blessing in this very powerful for those listening so really on your last piece day in regards to grief and anxiety And i i want you to also kind of speak to this and then also the last question as well. Because i think that it's important for communities are made vulnerable to climate change. It can sound like the politics is speaking past them and not addressing their pain and suffering today so this is my two part when you address climate grief and anxiety who are you speaking true directly and then we are a black lead podcast so we would be remiss if we didn't ax. How does your vision changed the status quo for black people. So who am i talking to. I'm talking to the Sensitive soulful hard that each of us has within us doesn't matter you know where we come from how older young we are You know a doesn't matter. Each of us is blessed with a little vase. That is a soft part of us a sensitive part of us a part. that honestly knows That there is more space for solidarity. Then we're making right now and so. I speak to everyone who understands that. We felt that grief as high To say it's good. Let's honor that grief. You don't put it under the rug onto the grief because honestly we have destroyed a heck of a lot on her the grief and don't stay there in honor of the grease moved to action in honor of the grief because otherwise we are just exponentially increasing our powerlessness. And we don't want to be powerless. We have an agency at each of us can actually have a contribution to make and to be very specific. There's a great website that is called countess in dot org that gives you sixteen different ferry very concrete things in you as an individual can do to contribute to to a better world. So i'm pointing you in that direction. In case you want very specific ideas end. How is it going to be better for the black community. I would like. I would like to share story with you about that. A beautiful nine year old. Little girl died in london Several years ago because she was hospitalized twenty nine times for asthma. Why because when she walked to school she walked along roads that are completely polluted by the cars that go by which burn fossil fuels basically put the fumes of those feels into her lungs and into the lungs of eight million people around the world were prematurely dying because of that most of them most of them people who live in congested polluted parts of cities. You can tell me kudos people are. They are in the united states air. Black brown poor people who live in those areas.

Every child has the right to bre- clean air and that is especially true in communities of people who live in areas that are congested and polluted.

People children are dying from asthma.

"christiana" Discussed on Think 100%: The Coolest Show

"Going to do And it's also interesting because to use the analogy but race again. I just came from greenland from the extreme erase. So i have racing racing mom in tallahassee on with me right now but that that race that we're all in is definitely a race against time and has the very interesting characteristic that every country has chosen. They're lame so Some countries are going much faster than others. Some are using different instruments along bat race. And that's all fine. What is absolutely critical. Is that the race. Older lanes in the race are actually headed in the same direction to work net zero. That and that they get all get to the finish line. That's the difference between the climate change race and the extreme e rice of electric vehicles. That was just went to in greenland because in normal motor sport or any kind of sport race there there will one winner and the others will come in second third fourth place. Whatever on the climate change race. This is the thing everyone has to win. Everyone has to win. Because if we don't if there's one that is not winning then that means that nobody can win we all. We're basically all on the same planet. We will have interchangeable constantly entertained circumstances and we all have to get to a decarbonised economy by twenty fifty in order to avert the worst effects of climate change. so it is a race against time and out and it is a race for every country where every organization for every institution for every individual. Because there's a lot at each of us can do you know if you're talking. I'm thinking about as global citizens as folks living all on this planet together You know we. We all have a shared goal fighting for existence And so and hopefully the un is that body to bring us together. I was he cop. Give us your thoughts on kinda the utility of cop and specifically your thoughts from cop twenty Peres to now so cop just to you. Know unpack that acronyms. So many acronyms. Dan acronym stands for conference of the parties. Cop which is the annual meeting of all national governments of all countries where they come together in the case of peres are on which was in two thousand fifteen to adopt this legally binding agreement that is called the perez women in the case of the cobb coming up now because these ups occur every time at the end of the this is caught. Twenty six this year which will be held in glasgow in In in the uk and the purpose of this cop twenty six is for countries to come to inform each other of what they have done since. Two thousand fifteen but much more importantly how much more they're going to do over the next five to ten years. This decade between now and twenty thirty is the most important decade in the history of humankind without a doubt and without any hyperbole or exaggeration. Because and that's why it's called the decisive decade because it is between now and twenty thirty that collectively. We're all going to figure out whether we're able to cut greenhouse gas emissions by fifty percent by them by twenty thirty and if we do that we open ourselves to a world that is actually much much better than the world that we live in now and we can talk about a great world that we can afford to but if we miss that we will actually be condemning ourselves but more importantly generation after us to a world of constantly increasing human misery especially for the most vulnerable especially for the most power which is why this is so much of a social justice issue. And i'm and that's exactly what we have to avoid because the fact is when you think about it. From a historical point of view the industrial revolution was great. It brought a lot of development to the world correction to some people in the world and it left many people behind and abused. These skill said around the willingness of many people to participate in that industrial revolution. So when you think about it if if commentator has been caused by the industrial revolution and that industrial revolution already came at the price of a huge inequality. Then the last thing that we can tolerate is for now that we walk out of the industrial the industrial revolution onto the next economic and energy revolution. We cannot repeat that factor of leading those that are most vulnerable out of the benefits so tall order but one that we cannot walk away from. You know as you're talking and thank you for clarifying cop because that's very important i will. I will tell you christiane. And one time i had to go i. I made a joke this session. Bliss was my opening. I had i was. We're fighting to protect the arctic and i Went to a bureau of land management meeting and I told him my joke was everybody was calling it. Blm and i in my my opening joke to them to to kind of soften it. 'cause i was i was with there really trying to push to protect the arctic was man. I'm here at being land. But i thought i was coming to a black lives matter meeting and so everybody audience that the folks at the of front end laugh though thereby behind me laugh so it was it was it was a good one. Thank you for clarifying. What copy is. I think i would be important for audience in that process way. But here's here's a question..

Trump's Refusal to Start the Transition Process Is Crippling America's Coronavirus Response

"The coronavirus surge around the country is coinciding with a transfer of power in the White House. President Trump has still refused to concede and administration health officials have not started working with President elect Biden's team. On the coronavirus response, NPR's Christiana Silvia reports a tool go on Day. A surgeon and professor at Harvard University who is part of the Biden Coronavirus Advisory group, told NPR on Friday that the group has been denied access. To starting a formal transition with the Trump administration. U. S Surgeon general Jerome Adams tells NPR that the Trump Task force is sharing public information with everyone. There is no information that we have that we don't share. With a met with the American public in general, and that is not available to the Biden task force. And so I'm I'm here and I'm willing to talk to anybody at any point. But the fact remains that the Trump administration has not begun the formal transition process to abide in administration at a time in which the pandemic is worsening across the nation.

A Look At The First Presidential Debate Of 2020

"Let's start today's program in the United States then which last night witnessed a chaotic and bitter presidential debate between President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden here's a selection of an use the term loosely highlights. I am urging my people I. Hope it's going to be a fair election of it's a fair election and what I am a hundred percent on board. But of I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can't go along with that and I'll. Come accommodation does that mean? People to take. A fraudulent election is people aren't equipped to handle it number one, number two, they cheat. They cheat hey, they found ballots wastepaper basket three days ago they all had the name trump on them if we would have listened to you, the country would have been left wide open millions of people would have died not two, hundred, thousand and one person is too much. It's China's fault. It should have never happened. They stopped it from going in, but it was China's for. But if you look at what we've? Done. I. Closed It, and you said he's xenophobic racist and xenophobic Dr out she said President trump saved thousands of lives. Many of you are Democrat governor said, president trump did a phenomenal job. We worked with the governor a really go take a look. There's a deal. The fact is everything he said so far is simply a lie I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I WanNa make sure what it lasts. It lasts. Hi I. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan how both? The. Aesthetic you have. Have you do this month? Your administration directed federal agencies to end racial sensitivity training that addresses white privilege or critical race theory. I ended it because it's racist. It was a radical, a revolution that was taking place in our military in our schools all over the place and you know it and so does everybody else. Racial sensitivity training to view a certain person, you had no status in life. It was sort of a reversal and really they were teaching people to hate our country and I'm not GonNa do that I'm not going to allow that to happen but. Just, as the rallies to left, would you? Listen, who is on your list Joe Just. The flavor of last night's heated presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Well, let's get more on this now with motorcycles US election correspondent. Thomas Lewis, and our news editor Chris show WHO's here in London Thomas. Let Me Cross to you first of all. Some up if you can what did you make that it was not exactly a particularly edifying spectacle I think it's safe to say, no, it wasn't Tom and it didn't really feel like a debate at all. There is in the sort of you know history of these debates as a sort of sacred toned the stages these candidates president take that when after debated finished, you're watching the US knees anchors who are trying to pick up the coverage afterwards, and they all seemed absolutely stunned and lost for words and kind of shocked by the kind of visceral experience. The the debate is offered them I think Joe Biden obviously seem much more prepared but Donald. Trump's goal. In the whole thing, I think was to fluster him to put him on the back foot to try and reignite this narrative that he's campaigners tried on largely failed to stick to Joe Biden that he's too old. He's doddery. He isn't really fit to lead the nation particularly in a time of crisis Joe Biden for sure had the set pieces if you like of the debate but a lot of the marine lost in the fog of the war of the shouting match and I think for the moderator Chris Wallace for someone who really is considered as one of the best in the business to also have been kind of sat there in silence. For. Large parts of it not quite knowing what to do really did speak in lots of ways to just how extraordinary presidential debate this really was Christiana. You were watching on this side of the you watch the whole thing I. Don't think you probably went into it with a great deal of expectation, but it's safe to say you would. Have to be disappointed by the standard of what you saw. Tom I've watched many debates over the years in the US and you know to Thomas Point there I've I've never quite seen anything like that in the US. The the irony in some ways is that US debates. Political debates kind of jumping off with Thomas said tend to be rather stilted affairs What's interesting for me in part before we talk about the actual substance is that typically that's because of the rules you know often it's very stilted in saying you know this candidate, you have two minutes thirty second rebuttal to the next one one minute rebuttal to you. Now we move. Onto the next topic, this one was an open debate there was always after each question there two minutes for each candidate's is start with that didn't work very well already to begin with because there was a lot of interruptions. But then after that, it was sort of this free for all that very quickly descended into a shouting match essentially between the two candidates the other Issue for me or I think. The. That's that's worth. Pointing out is. I do think that one could say donald trump will feel like he pulled off a rather good performance. This is the persona that he has cultivated over the last three and a half years when it comes to his style as well as the ideas that he has put forward, this is who he is and I think he will feel that he had energized even those supporters that he has to come out I don't think he's won any new supporters with what he's done, but he's energized his own base and by as Thomas said, really sort of. Failing to let by Biden in really to make any strong points because of the constant interruptions. Biden didn't make a very strong mark. I would argue and so that that works in some ways if you want to speak purely political calculations that works to trumps favorite because people are going to be left frankly just depressed with the political process as a result of that the big. Well, we'll come to you rather autistic said was the substance. I didn't detect creative air in a moment but I just wonder on that point about trump he seemed to be I don't know this sort of a twitter feed made flesh. It was just a series of spiky pronouncements angry it was delivered in the style we've come to associate with him on that platform Were there any actual substantive communications that will have registered or was it just about him preview once again he can shout louder. Know the worst some substantive points that that were made and a couple of them played in in those clips that I thought were were quite interesting and highlighted the two different ideologies. One was on the pandemic and the Corona virus you heard Donald Trump talked there as he often does putting all the blame on putting all the blame on China for the coronavirus coming in he also there were a number of exchanges where it was very clear that for Donald Trump it's time for. People to open up again, it's time for the country to open up. He bragged about the fact that he had many people at his rallies. For example, at his political rallies. He felt that was a good thing and he sort of Josh Joe. Biden for you know not being able to get people to his rallies and there was this very poignant moment in that way where the quote was along the lines of trump saying people want to open up and Biden responded. quickly, people want to be safe and so that was a very clear moment in terms of the ideology of the two. I think that will strike people and the second one was on race, which you also heard there there are some very strong moments that again highlighted the sharp differences between the two when it comes to race and protests and the violence that is happening in the US right. Now, there was the bizarre moment you heard there about racial sensitivity training. WHERE DONALD TRUMP DONALD TRUMP rather very depressingly. I would say really double down on this idea that racial sensitivity training is somehow leading to a radical revolution in the United States in education he also refused to openly condemn white supremacist groups. There was this moment where he was asked to condemn the proud boys a white supremacist group and he did not So there were there were moments there that we're really quite depressing. He focused his attention than on Joe Biden saying. You, refuse to speak about law and order I. Think Joe Biden tried to answer that maybe Thomas can speak to this as well. It was interesting how he tried to answer the law and order question I wonder if that is something that you know might lose him some supporters on the left because he was trying to be quite defensive of the polices result of that. So Donald Trump really use his own strategy, what he wanted to do to effect in his world. Let me bring you in. Then on I guess looking from Joe Biden's pointed viewed along with Christie's rated the. was rather difficult for him to. Seize control of the narrative given trump's behavior sort of in the room. What did you make of his performance and would there be any areas that he may find he landed any blows I think Donald Trump's goal was purely to fluster Joe Biden and to throw him off his. Uncertain moments it worked. There were other moments when Joe Biden was alive to speak that you know if they do want to characterize him someone who is a little bit of don't reason quite fully grasp of himself for the facts then Joe Biden did show that he is an accomplished speaker. He had some ideas that were quite forward-looking Donald trump had none of those things and he. was questioned at at certain points asking well, what are your plans and there were really no answers. All Donald Trump wanted to do was as you put earlier Tom to shout the loudest because Donald Trump. Now, to win this election, he readings debate either bring big swathes of voters to his cause which I think last night's performance by him is unlikely to do he also therefore if he Can't that might try and do he didn't twenty sixteen and not is to keep people home to stop people effectively to make the atmosphere. So angry and Sophie Brier the people feel so disenchanted with the electoral process that they just don't vote at tall that was successful for him to a certain degree in two thousand sixteen, I think if the polls are correct and the polling arguably. Is more accurate is more detailed is more specific this time around than it was last time. Then I think that it would take a huge number of people to stay home for Donald Trump to sneak victory in the Electoral College. There were some reports after the debate last night that Joe Biden's team that some sources close to his campaign suggesting that maybe Joe Biden wouldn't take part. In the next two debates, if those debates are going to be like we saw last night because really heat does arguably have the most to lose here given his lead is so large at the moment I'm for Donald Trump. This isn't about sort of setting out to vision for America. This is about just sort of keeping and clinging onto power in the angriest way he possibly can, and I think as Chris mentioned I think that was if that's what the goal was that was pretty successful for him. Last night I think that Joe? Biden? Obviously prepared well, obviously prepared in detail but just a lot of those. A lot of those ideas set pieces that he had brought to the debate stage just weren't really allowed to shine through given just had extrordinary. The climate was on stage last night. It's always great to me. Thanks for being with us, tell us in Chris both the Monaco's. Team looking ahead to November Thomas and here in London Chris China here

More Lysol, No More Pens In Rooms. Hotels Adapt To Win Back Guests

"In Normal Times hotels tried to attract customers with star chefs or high end design. But these are not normal times seven out of ten hotel rooms in the. Us are empty now and to survive hotels adapting. Here's NPR's Berliner. The news from Hilton lately isn't about craft cocktails or a spot. It's a partnership with Lysol. That's right Hilton. Is Teaming up with the parent company of Lysol? It's all about the hand. Cleanliness Phil Cordell was Hilton's global head of brand development. We know that through this pandemic the that expectation of cleanliness is probably been elevated to the point now where it's cleanliness almost with a double exclamation point after it at Hilton and other hotels guests can expect disinfectant being applied liberally and visibly leap for the sake of cleanliness and for reassurance says. Jim coyle who consults with hotels on customer experiences. When you get a guest key you will see the staff members. They will conspicuously white. The guess key in front of you before the Hannity when he arrived at desk. You're going to see hotel staff wiping the desk. A clean in front of even though there's nothing and when you get to your room efforts reassurance Marriott International has identified twelve. Touch points for extra disinfectant. Ray Bennett is the company's head of Global Operations DOORKNOBS IRMA. Stats door handles Drawer handles things of that. Nature Has Hilton Rolls Out. It's clean stay campaign. Cordell says guess will notice some familiar objects missing. They will soon that some of the items in the room. That could likely be fingerprinted by previous guests. Magazines notepads pens those items have been removed from the room. And there's likely to be more. Here's industry consultant. Jim coyle again. The phone will probably be something that's seeing. Its last days because of pelvic in that most divisive object in the hotel room I think the the death of the mini bars. Probably finally here. All of these steps have one purpose to assure travelers. That are safe. Released a safe as they possibly can be. While Corona virus is still with us. An early test will be convincing business. Travelers like Liz Oppenheim. Who LIVES OUTSIDE OF BOSTON? She's itching to get back on the road. The longer I go without traveling the more I just don't feel like a person. I literally have dreams almost every night about traveling. Oppenheim works with drug companies on clinical trials and only spends three or four nights a week and hotels. She enjoys it for one thing. She rex up a lot of loyalty points. All the status says for now travel is on pause and his Oppenheim. Imagine staying in hotels again. There's one word. She uses a lot anxious. So there's something about slipping between the sheets of the clean white Christiana hotel that's just incredibly relaxing especially worked at a really hard. You Know Tense Day work and it's just so wonderful but I think I will be anxious. I think I'll be anxious. To as hotels spray. Disinfect and purge their rooms of pens magazines and note pads they may eliminate germs but will they eliminate anxiety

On Earth Day, What You Can Do For The Environment

"Madison shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong Hey Mattie. Hey you so kwong. It's a listener question episode that we have perfectly timed because tomorrow is Earth Day the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. And yes and you know. What Earth is shortwave replenish? We love you. We love your tectonic plates. Your Ocean absolutely. You're many fungi and insects. Kwong favourite insect on three one To Walking Lady Bug but as we all know our home planet is getting warmer We've had evidence of climate change since nineteen sixty when Charles Keeling measured carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere and detected in annual rise and climate. Change has of course progressed significantly in the past few decades bringing costly changes to our oceans and forests soil and air so this leads us to our listener question right right like this one from Janet Grou- in Heidelberg Germany one topic which is very much in the news. These days and very much on my mind is climate change. It's something which is causing many people a great deal of anxiety because they feel helpless in the face of it. So what can individuals do to slow global warming? Thanks for the question Janet and you know we like to over promise over deliver on short yes so I took this question straight to the top to folks who have thought about this more than most. Hello my name's Tom. Rivett CARNAC and I'm Christina Vienna's Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett. Carnac were lead negotiators for the United Nations during the two thousand fifteen Paris agreement. Dang Quang those. They're like big time climate folks. It's true only the best for our listeners. And this landmark document. The Paris agreements really crafted the language. That we now use to talk about. Climate Change Action. Here's Cristiana. We knew that this would be a once in a lifetime. Opportunity to how one hundred ninety five countries come around and agree. This is our one chance and we have to set out the in dire thing the way that science

Climate Change Experts Find Hope in Global Action to Contain Coronavirus

"Face it. Life as we know has changed dramatically in the past few weeks and one unintended. Impact of the health and economic crisis is reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Planes aren't flying. Cars are parked. So how will this crisis and the choices we make in the next few years impact future greenhouse gas emissions scenarios Christiana? Figueres is a former executive secretary of the UN Climate Change Convention and Tom Rivett. Carnac served as her senior adviser together. They recently wrote the future. We choose surviving the climate crisis they also co hosts a podcast called outrage and optimism. Thanks for joining US via skype today. Christiane and Tom. Thank you very much for the invitation. Poll great to be here. Christiane it in the book. You lay out two extremely different climate scenarios in twenty fifty based on the choices we make between now. And then. Why take that approach? We thought it would be a helpful approach to take for two reasons one because whether we are aware of it or not we are actually choosing right now and over the next ten years between two dramatically different worlds that we will experience so we thought it was important to bring all that choice to the fore and walk readers through the consequences and the second reason why we thought it would be helpful is because frankly those of us who have been working on climate change for emptying years have tended to focus only on the doom and gloom consequences of unabated climate. Change all of which is true. And which is in scenario one but we have made less of an effort to be equally as compelling in our narrative about what happens with this world if we actually do bring down our emissions to one half of where they are now by twenty thirty. And what does that word feel like what does it? What does it look like? What is the experiential sensation that we will have out of a much better world? Take us through the scenarios that you envision in the book. Well let's start with the scenario that we don't want but it's a scenario that we're actually walking toward unless we take dramatically different decisions so that scenario is a scenario in which the first thing that hits you the quality of the because when you walk out of your condition home you will be hit with very hot polluted air. Which means that you won't be able to walk outside without a mask and you will very likely not be able to work. Play or exercise outside. Most of our human activities will have to be inside including producing food. We will also be experiencing vast slots of many continents that will be rendered practically uninhabitable. Meaning that there will be millions of people who will be forced to migrate away from home and livelihood putting enormous pressure on boundaries of countries. That are a little bit worse off at least from temperature point of view. But we'll be worse off from a political and social pressure point of view. This is a world in which conflict and very likely violent conflict will erupt and a world in which are democracies will really be threatened. That sounds pretty dire. Tom Take us through the more optimistic scenario where we take extreme action sooner taking the kinds of actions that will slow the flow of greenhouse gases to protect the ice caps and protect the other elements that we think of classic they around climate. Change will have all kinds of other benefits. I mean the ad will be cleaner. If we don't combust fossil fuels to drive 'cause to to combustion power plants etc. We will have avoided a massive public health crisis. Our cities will be clean and they'll be green. Birds will be in the cities that we can imagine cities that are reconstructed for human scale of life at something. We are not without much complexity at the moment around Corona virus but some people are beginning to experience that would be like a quieter place It would also be a world in which we have succeeded in preventing this collapse in humanity has come together and done a big thing. It is collectively avoided this moment of breakdown and as a result of that has come together and it is a world that is remembered. What's important you mentioned corona virus clearly were in a major crisis right now with Cova nineteen. It's a health. It's an economic crisis. It's playing out right in front of us but it looks like this has actually reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the short term. China has seen a twenty five percent drop in emissions. We're seeing this major. Stop in air travel and a dramatic reduction. An Auto Travel Christina. Do you have a sense of how much greenhouse gas emissions could fall this year if current trends continue? Well no that's difficult to predict because obviously it will very much depend on how long this epidemic last. However I do think that it is important to note that the drop in greenhouse gas emissions is you well pointed out an unintended consequence the difference between this and actually making very intentional policies and measures to reduce greenhouse gases is that the economic consequences of the Corona virus are fundamentally negative the economic consequences of decarbonising. Our economy are fundamentally positive because they will strengthen the economy they will provide millions of new jobs. We know the transportation and commuting is the biggest opportunity for greenhouse gas reductions. And we're in the situation where we have all these people working from home. What about going forward do all of these people actually really need to commute? Every day we live in an era of skype and zoom. What could we do to transportation emissions going forward? He and I think it's such a fascinating situation. I mean festival as Christiane said we'RE NOT GONNA solve climate change with a virus right so the temporary job in greenhouse gas emissions is only meaningful and useful if it gets translated into change habits which actually make some of these reduced emissions more prominent now teddy working video conferencing. The the the technology has come so far in recent years. But it's been met with us sort of general sense of skepticism that people can really do and the technology really works and actually what if the reading things about the last week is the people have been walking from home using these technologies and in most cases working really well and realizing the benefits of not having to commute in the morning not having to travel? I mean I myself have to travel most week somewhere whether it's up to London from where I live in the west of England or or or getting on a plane going across to Europe or something and now I haven't traveled for the last two weeks. And actually that's been great. I've really enjoyed being home with my family and I have been able to do the what that I would. Otherwise have had to do in a different way using virtual tools so they say that it takes between four and six weeks to really change in ingrained habit if you're engaging with a new normal. I think we're going to get at least that of this new normal to get used to now. How much of that can stick off towards. Is the really interesting question but on climate change different is good and this is a different thing now because nothing can excuse the tragedy and the loss of life. And we're certainly not saying that tool but these changes in habit can be good and we'll see what happens as that unfolds and at the moment is difficult to predict and Paul. I want to make sure that you know. We're not coming across as being making light of the fact that so many people are suffering right now. We are losing thousands of lives. We have many people who are affected an isolated. We have millions of people who are self isolating we have millions of people who are losing their income or the the entire informal sector is now really out hugely and deeply threatened because of the last a loss of their income. So we're not making light of the cost that this incredible global pandemic is actually having upon us. What we're doing is we are taking that with. Its full consequence and driving some lessons for a global emergency that has very different characteristics but from which some of the behavioral changes that we have already become accustomed to in just a few weeks might actually be helpful.

I think they probably better than they were last year with coming in at centre half. They got a couple of good midfield plus Arabia. I think is going to be a good addition for them but we still don't know where they're. GonNa lose one or two between detailer. ARE THEY GONNA go. I still think it's GonNa be tough well. UH-HUH I agree listen nine to one odds. If you're a betting man good better have event us but I'm sure to this as I think you should right now. There are other clubs that are better prepared than events or that being said it takes a huge slice of luck to win a competition says champions is the whether Lagos with eventual or against the this time we'll tell they've got a good squad a better score than the last season and as much as I rinaldo wants to be a little bit noncommittal he was brought there for a reason and I he wants it as much as anybody this year or next despite what his suggests well you mentioned it's a knockout competition and the slings and Arrows of outrageous for what would the odds on Spurs being reaching the final this time of year. It would've been the group yeah they. They should've shouldn't really got through the group early stages then they had that gaming stocks what they've nearly out and got go back into the game won't be challenged team. You could do a spurs this year if he'd come from lower down in the in the odds to surprise. We're not necessarily win it but the big price lost his.
