"E. Another stab bipartisanship. I'm ham who? So Fox News Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle will meet with President Biden on Monday to talk about his infrastructure plan the president pushing to change the tax code, the reason he wants to make sure American companies were actually paying some of those taxes to help with infrastructure. Relating those two ideas together the White House looking at $2.5 trillion over a decade and a half to help finance roads and whatnot, the president wants to increase the corporate tax. Rate from 21% under President Donald Trump to 28% moderate Senator Joe Manchin said. Let's just meet in the middle, maybe looking something like 25%. Fox says David's fund Republicans have scoffed at the price tag. And at some of the items the White House considers infrastructure like universal. Pre K Progressive Democrats say the plan needs to be bigger. The two parties are also on opposite ends when it comes to possibly packing the Supreme Court. A commission established through an executive order signed by the president yesterday will study it. I think this commission is probably pressure from binds, left flank number one if he has any memory of calling it a bonehead idea when he did do that. Senate Republican Mike Braun. The commission has six months to examine the issue with space severely limited at our southern border. Some of the migrants in the Phoenix area are being temporarily housed in hotels, the mayor's office telling us they were informed about migrants staying in local hotels.

"So. We aimed from the beginning of to to try and find ways to bigness which we have been able to do. I mean obviously. We were delighted in july this year because the book series past one million downloads. Gran faster graphic mother monographs one million is going to be pretty unusual so the question is how did you go from six hundred copies to one million and it's not one particular strategy. I guess we do think mystically is really putting together. A whole series of different strands and making them work together to build that kind of openness. And i would say the most important things were number one that we publish everything open access and that means you don't have to pay for it. We work in countries often with people very low income a traditional monograph from publisher it's just affordable we strongly believe people in these areas should have access to the stuff that we produce. We've used that time. They're the ones who give us the information. Well shouldn't they have a right to get information so open. Access was vital and we were very fortunate in the uc l. Where we work has the first a fully open access university press in the uk. The second wa. I would say would be accessible english because you can have it for free baugh. Most work is just difficult in the sense that it's often obfuscating. It uses jogging terminology. And the soon as you look at it if you're not out from that particular kind of goupil without kind of education you look at it and say this is not intended for me so inclusivity is about being kind of friendly we want to show we really do want to shed this and if you look at it you can see is full of just interesting stories we try and avoid any words that would not be familia to somebody. Let's say finishing school. Or maybe i invested so inclusivity comes with the kind of language using but also the writing style using stories and finding things that are just interesting to read writing the kind of knowledge that people enjoy for. You want to write a book. The people pick up put down again until they finished it because actually finding it. Quite absorbing an exciting. The next is the. It's not just monographs because people need to work up to that. If that's not the kind of stuff they would normally read. We actually started blogging from day. One and that means that you've got trophy. Power goes very straightforward simple accounts of interesting things as they are happening. So you have that immediacy. This isn't something the rising about later on. It's like oh last week somebody told me that it up so people can start to follow where they can get engaged with their. We also produced about one hundred films but all fields are short because we recognize own research people these days. They like videos to a few minutes. One of the big innovations of all next is the apple is smartphones and my aging is the. We're going to actually put the film's inside the books. Where the book. Normally you'd see like a still photo but until digital lights so actually there is nothing to stop you putting a little film video and maybe we'll do some sure tiktok style videos as.

Oh yeah that's right. He'd been the publisher from nineteen sixty to nineteen eighteen eighty. Otis was a huge gearhead himself in mammoth car collection and they were actually friends. Which is another strange tie into the La Times with the story and As a result perhaps as a result but one way or another Willie wound up getting his share of coverage in the La Times over the years so we pulled up a ton of archival stories that are part of our our our website where you can read how the La Times covered him back in the day. Who is the most interesting individual surviving character from this gang so the Brotherhood of street racers lives on obviously And they were so welcoming to me. I mean they let me into this world and gave me an opportunity to be a part part of it for a brief time as a reporter. One of the main figures who who you were will hear throughout the podcast is a street racer named Fabian. Arroyo can actually see him on the right right there with the law the law and Fabian. Is this guy here. It is a very well known L. A. Street Racer And he was instrumental in helping me sort of understand understand big willie. He was very close with Willie. He lived with him for a time toward the end of Willie's life and I think you really may be understood Willie Better than anybody. I spoke to so I learned a lot from Fabien and But there are other characters other figures who really I can't say it enough really. Welcome into world that otherwise I would have not had access to well now that you've covered big willie and big Tommy. What's left are you on? Are you on a new.

Stories That I've been wanting to tell for a while I don't want to give too much away but related or no. Oh so nothing sort of down the middle car related but I feel like kind of that sort of world that I'm interested in whether it's cars or food Or sort of gambling in La. There's a lot of intersections and so I'm kind of back in the you know the lab kind of working on a handful of things that you know. I I think if you if you enjoy larger than life they might speak to you as well. Cool man that's awesome. I love about it Last question before we get out here favorite favorite cheap meal in La.

I gotta go. What Tito Tacos Burritos Tacos is good? I like it. I the people born in L. A.. A good place and I am not as I don't understand the super long lines but I give you just one pro tip you gotta go to the sidelines lines. Do not mess with the exterior right. I feel like when I bite into one of those tacos. It's like I'm you know I'm five years old and it's like the summer and my you know. My parents drove us over there. Take you know have like an early dinner. So like it's taps into something for me and I think a lot of Angelinos so I love Tito's I mean I don't know there's appre spoon down right so good choice.

I've had in the city and it's absolutely do talk Syria Tacos but this is the first period Taco de Leash all right so let me give you on that note. Let me tell you one other thing that the place I go with my dad. It's a Berea restaurant in the Pico Union area so down towards Downtown La and it's called L.. Powder Yana you want to say Don't judge Pronuncia but so it's L. Paran and they do Goat Berea the traditional way. So you get a big bowl. Basically a goat stew and Ted He's read is beef berea which basically means they boil an entire cow until it turns to liquid remember the first time he had woman and they told us we are your eating liquid pig right now. This is liquid cow. It's great but the but I highly recommend this place again. It's a cheap eat right but It's so good and again.

"You're getting a deal but one but there are other incentives beyond the the fuel card so Hundai if the CAR Hundai pockets the federal tax break on this which instantly drops down the price of the lease right And then there's a California rebate on these cars as well carpooling them by yourself and you can carpooling them by herself. That's that's the job so it kind of adds up to a pretty enticing package I don't know if I'd have another one at once. My lease is up but I'm enjoying it right now and look.

"Cool man the shell is that what did I win. This is that is that Putin. Well he still had hair very serious Columbia University president ball alter inside baseball for motor guys people watching Yeah he he's a he's a Smith of words. Yeah yeah fantastic. I mean whether it's great food critic like you know the late Jonathan Gold of the La Times Or somebody like Daniel I mean criticism is is is when it's good that's good. I like Jonathan Gold. I didn't like it I I started reading some more of his stuff and I live been turned on him. I like him now. There's a restaurant in Venice called Felix. It's Evan. What's his less funk funk right and it's just it's like three months ahead you gotta get a reservation this place? It's Pasta. It's handmade pasta and I guess he makes it's like all of it. It's really expensive. And whatever and I got a reservation longtime ago and had my wife and I went last week and We didn't think it was that great. He he's method is to really under Cook Pasta. It's really out dente intentionally. And when I guess Jonathan Gold was not a fan either and he flat out said this Guy Makes Pasta wrong. Like what is he like he just makes wrought three months. So yeah you have to be able to see you know. There's a place a list of three months and you had to be able to go when you're doing you're doing it wrong. Does you know even if even if you know. He's still looks like a car. That has a fundamentally bad aspect aspect about it and he goes man. People put like tens of thousands of dollars of hours into this and designing and you know a lot of them tried really hard. And you're we're GONNA sit there and be like this is where you landed you after all of that. This what's actually landed on Grid such it's trouble It happens though but usually when you go on you can usually go in the press launches. If you have one of those moments like you've got how did you end up here. They can can usually explain to you how they did. End Up there and you end up with a little bit more sympathy very true a little bit more. Sometimes I'm like you've gotta be shitting me. Fiat Chrysler there's Nab Systems were not colorblind. Friendly Hotel very recent. Oh Wow really the best system. It's great but when you put a map map Put a destination in an and made the map line at to a colorblind person. Same as the other road lines see couldn't see the map. This thing was just floating. Well that's wild. It happens so wait did you. Did you want to be like a journalist journalist and you tried doing carve us and then took a left or did you see what angle did you enter this from shirt. Sure now I grew up wanting to be a reporter. I wrote from High School Paper For my college paper and I and I am a business journalist by trade I have longed for the business section of the La Times the school for Journalism. No I went to UCLA. And the advice I had gotten from a guidance. Counselor was if you're interested in journalism just sort of right for the school paper and you know read a lot of books. Take a Lotta history classes a lot of English classes. So that's kind of the route that I took itemise experience experience writing for the daily Bruin. You know you sort of learn on the fly how to be a reporter reporter and I had been a sports reporter at the time covering the UCLA football team. You know where you're nineteen years old and you're flying across the country to go see them play Oklahoma get their ass kicked by Oklahoma and you get probably a fun Gig. I bet you feel extremely legit. If someone's flying around nineteen to report on sports event. Yeah I think it was a it was a for me personally. It was a thrill I group Bruin fan my parents went to Ucla also so it was fun to be doing that but also you know it's sort of you know I think it's a nineteen year old where you can have a lot of distractions you sort of rise to the occasion when you're given that kind of opportunity And and so I loved it and I feel very lucky that I came mm-hmm upon a career that I have always loved and and it and it wound up being what I had hoped it would be things so many times. When you chase the dream then you finally realize that? It's not quite what you had hoped for right. Well Yeah when it becomes a job. Yeah I mean a lot of people have pretty dope lives if you distill them down into five or six instagram. Graham posts are ten minutes of video. You know what I mean like. My life is fucking sick in Instagram Belykh. y'All I'm doing emails like six hours a day that that shit ain't glamorous all the time like this much glamorous and like don't get me wrong. I'm perfectly happy to do you know but like it doesn't you're you know you got to see the whole picture and and in a lot of jobs become jobs. Yeah you know and I see you shine wears off and actually. That's one thing that I've wondered about. You know not to go too deep but like I'm I'm such a car guy. I love cars but you know when it became my job to write about cars even just very briefly that became so difficult. I wondered you know sort of you know my I love forty-three gotten the way or just sort of made it that. It was hard to do it as a job with. The cars aren't exciting. It's really hard. I mean if you're talking about this week it's a Kia optima next week it's the Altima and then you're in a Mazda C x five. I mean yeah that would be difficult if you figure here out how to drive exciting cars. It's a lot easier because now you've got sensations you can talk about you drive Altima. There's no sensation you. Yeah you got in and then you went over there and then you've got out like that's it so it's hard now I hear you saying I mean one one of the reasons why I love working on this larger than life. PODCAST Is That I. It was about cars but it was also really a character study and and it was about this world that I got to immerse myself in for a year or so and so it could sort of scratch sat inch of learning about cars researching cars going to car auctions. Things like that but it wasn't like banging out car reviews right and it was telling that this sort of you know untold story story. This quintessential L. A. Tale. Well I think The reason I I kind of I'm kind of doing like the career day thing right now is because so many people email me and they go. How do I you do that? The thing that you're nothing you're doing. How do I do that and I go? I don't know but you probably shouldn't start by doing our reviews because it's saturated and it's hard to make your perspective means something in such a saturated market. I'm fortunate in that. I am kind of known at this point so so if I do a car review people go mad farris coming from here and so this is why things. But if you're not but so that's why I think it's your angles interesting because you're writing about cars but you're not you know what I mean. You're not doing that. And so I tell people frequently find something else to write about in cars. There's lots of things you've got to pick a direction um you know. Sure sure Do you think the the career advice you got from that guidance counselors correct lake instead of saying going journalism. Go you get your education and other other aspects of writing and kind of Dissecting information I actually do think so and I have plenty of incredibly talented colleagues. Who went to J. School and a and J school and it's funny because I went to the University of Pennsylvania we call the J. School but for completely different reasons? Colorado the joint score or something. Oh no juice. It's like seventy percent of the white people. There were Jewish including myself so so so so so for me it work yes in you know everybody's different but yeah I majored in history at Ucla. Minor police I I I I had to write a lot of papers. I read a lot of books but I think for me that that really did work. And look when you're at paper like the daily Bruin it comes out every day you know you you get paid a small stipend to in their flying to cover events. It feels real right. You know you you better not liable somebody at the daily Bruin so you learn how at this world works. You know When you're out paper like that so for me it was fantastic? That's cool man. I like I I.

"That I thought he was like. I wear a helmet when I raised. What are you crazy now? Yeah I picked your picture. Big Willie really is like Like kind of like the Black Dominic Toronto a little bit. He kind of came off that way in the in the five minute video clip I watched she came off as real Toretta. Greta wish taken racing like real seriously. Oh yeah this thing you know racing was in his blood. It was a way of life for him. I mean he lived by Dr. He drove a sixty-nine nine Charger Daytona with a Hemi and it was a factory Hemi he called at the Daytona as a drag car. Yes he had it he he. He bought it with a Hemi. But eventually had it souped up at Keith. Black racing engines which is a legendary tuner. Here in the Southland His wife to me go who was also a racer had a matching factory. Hemi that was called the Queen Daytona and soon pimp. Oh is that right. They're the big Willie. So that's actually. Another car is replica. That was actually. It was on a replica. That was another car of theirs. That didn't have a Hemi but it has a sixty nine Daytona. That's that's a very it's an attractive Racecar racecar yeah so that was That was not a car that they actually really drag racing but It was their car with a lot of heritage. It's called the Duke and Duchess Daytona. This car sold at auction in spring. Two thousand eighteen at the mecum auctions into in Indianapolis I think for about two hundred and three thousand dollars with The presumes low. That was really interesting. It seemed a little low but some people said to me at in Indy. When I was there for the auction they wondered whether Big Willie he was famous enough nationally that his name was really sort of an A A an additive thing for them rice and somebody you sort of set allowed to me almost in in really worried way. They worried that the person who bought the car would paint over all the custom lettering and just have a have a daytona. I can't that would be that would happen. But the the buyer was anonymous The buyer isn't actually there in the room and had a proxy depending on his or her behalf so we don't know who bought it or what happened to the car News never seen again ever seen again. That's sad that's cool. Though I mean I really I liked the I I can't recall ever seeing Daytona drag car really you know. He's always a road course oval in Florida. I wonder how how the Aero really improves it. In just the quarter mile if it makes a big difference probably not I mean actually the shape friend probably helped a little bit of the top but I think it's also just like nominee things have a presence like that car like even the muscle car world yes like whereas like twenty feet long like anything else. It's like four inches longer than a suburban. It's like I don't know him personally but like it from the outside. That would kind of his personality. He was a showman and this was the perfect car for a showman of that era. Yeah it's Kinda cheeky too. I noticed the detail on the other one. I don't know if it's on all the cars but the one these insulin mecum. UCSF number seven forty seven on the wing which I thought was pretty cheeky. Eh But It's a really interesting. Look for a drag car. It's just you don't I I just I've never seen it before. It's very like unique one. I've ever even really seen like on slicks and skinny. He's like that. It's like the fucking Joe Dirt Car yes that was a Hemi Daytona. I know it's great and maybe the one the one the media was not a real hammy was not having it was a four four. Also that I mean that might have also been value. This is like an auto to that could also be as well but yeah I think it might have been an auto auto. Do we know big willies. Best Times so this is obviously hotly debated by members of the Brotherhood of street. Racers of course I've asked that question many times. And they would always say look a real street racers never going to tell you as real time but I did unearth timers Italian. So I I mean to give you this or did they just raise heads up. Did they go. Did they raise the flag so they would race with a flag and big willie was often the flagger. I mean they had a Christmas tree. They had lights but but You know they would often turn off the timing equipment This you know. They wanted to recreate mile winnings winning but So you Willie To answer a question about time so I found Karmazin from the early seventies. That said I WANNA say the King Daytona ran in the low twelve's fast for for St Corn. Seventy right. This is a long time ago Now of course you know you can buy what a Hell L. Cat and Smoke that time heartbeat this week. I'm driving I'm driving a jeep track hawk but from Hennessy has a thousand in horsepower. I heard you guys talking about on the show is I drove it to fuck and physical therapy this morning. It's Ho- Larry's I mean. It's it's so stupid but but it's fun it's a thousand horsepower jeep. Grand Cherokee Gory. Gory is actually comfortable well. It's got great seats. That's a good good suspense. That you know it's it's silly and fought it does zero to sixty two point seven seconds and weighs fifty three hundred. That's insane I will tell you as part of our reporting on big Willie I wanted to sort of compare the modern dodge Hemi cars to the iconic so nine Hemi Daytona so we found an owner in southern California of a sixty-nine Hemi Daytona and dodge Lent the LA Times Times Health Red Eye and A charger hell cat. So we had those three cars and We did a photo and video. Shoot with with the red eye and sixty nine Hemi Daytona had them side-by-side sort of were able to compare them see what sort of influences we could find in the new car from the old car. Sorry it was it was fascinating old cars terrible. Isn't it for most things. Yeah we can say all right. They're rough they're they're they're rough right. They beat you up. I drive I drive a seventy two DOTS INTO FORTY Z. So I free. I am used to you know vinyl seats no AC etc etc.. So I'm but yeah you know you you you forget how far we've come. Yeah it's it's the you're very tired at the end. Do you know. Mike must've met him before he he's written for Montreal. He just got a gig with hemmings. Right now Haggerty right now hemmings hemmings. But he's done a bunch of different stuff. He's been around for awhile. He's a real muscle car guy and he has a sixty eight charger and a daytona clone with a big five hundred forty. I think that one five hundred cubic inch something or other a big pool like and it's great it's works got nice. Breaks could suspension and it goes around corners and stuff. It's cool but you're so so tired at the end of the day after you drive it. It's brutal and even all the all those little cart visceral experience driving currently out. Pretty this is. It's just got so much black. It could be none more black as the blackest it's fantastic really good Daytona. That's the charge. He's got a charger Daytona. So the podcast is how many episodes seven episodes nice and so is it the whole life of Big Willie or is it. Focus focus on one specific area. It's his whole story from start to finish a lot of twists and turns. Yeah how long until you do it. All it took about a year to create the podcast and end the written stories and other things. We did I I heard about big willie a year prior so back in two thousand seventeen as working on a story That involve me going out to visit a guy named Ted Moser and his company picture car warehouse. Oh yeah and so cool is all right very cool place in the valley and they outdo what you could probably guess yes they do right. Yeah so the cars for movies TV shows and you know it's A. It's a trip to go there. You've got like the Bud Light Lincoln continental on an all from the super bowl commercial a couple of years ago. Got A bunch of sixty New York. Taxi cabs it's a trip. Yeah I mean they have a bunch of like regular cars. It's like if you have A. I need to fill a neighborhood hood in from nineteen seventy four. They're like okay and they show up with a whole neighborhood full of like period cars and make it look like the seventy s or whatever. It's awesome right. So I'm I'm I'm wandering around the lot with Ted I'm working on a story that involves him and has nothing to do with big Willie and we stop at this broken down race car and IT SORTA looks like Daytona but it's not quite a daytona. It's got a fairly Jackie looking thing there. That's it right there so this is is it's it's a sixty. XT6 Plymouth Barracuda. Obviously the roots been cut off. And it's got this strange rear wing and he points at the car and he says well you know if you're a car guy. Because I told him I was in cars. He says you should know what this car is and I give them some dumb look clearly. I have no idea what he's talking about. And he says you know this was my friend. Big Willie Robinson's car and and he was a legendary Ella Street racer. He toured across the country with this car. And you should know who he is. He started dropping some big names he said he was friends with Paul Newman. He was friends with Steve McQueen. He knew the mayor of Los Angeles. And I'm listening to the story looking at that rusty old car and I'm thinking this can't be true so I go back to the office and I start doing some research. You Start Looking at our own archives at the LA times and it turns out that what I'd been told was real and I couldn't believe it because I'd never heard of big Willie and that's what launched me on this project. So what what of his car that. The thing that was sitting at Pitch Card warehouse like Whoa. It's okay that was his car but like what it was a daytona but like how wise it like this so oh this car came after the King Daytona can Gaetana was destroyed as the king the Queen Daytona was also destroyed in the early Seventies. This was big like in a crash. Or don't don't Wanna get too much especially troubling nothing. We could do about note involved a dip in an acid tank out hero our own good now now. We're going to go now and put Al Hooked in the PODCAST. So after he was fine I hear parts of the of the story of the PODCAST. I won't give away but I was like. Wow this was not just like oh like racing. I'm GonNa bring all the kids together. He's like I'm also fucking people up on the Strip. He was serious So this was the next is car after the King Daytona was destroyed. And it's a sixty six Plymouth Barracuda A hemi motor from Keith black racing engines and because Willie by by that time had become known for wing cars he's sorta grafted a wing onto the back of it sculpted the nose cone to look like a Daytona and called it the police Daytona. You may have seen it kind of looked like Ed police and this I think at least my interpretation is this sort of represents his sense of brotherhood with the police that he would have a drag racing car. That sort of looked like a cop car. Do they I mean. Is there a relationship between these guys and the people that actually do the cops race the kids on the drag strip. I'm sure you don't talking. Yes yes so so Direct relationship. Yes so much later in the ninety s big willie connected with some officers who are behind. LSD Motor Sports which is A sh L. E. Sheriff's department organization It's a nonprofit and they they have some drag Thursday take tracks street racing made safe as out as something something like that. It's always like race the cops or something race a Fox by whatever background. I'm from New York. Where did you grow up around here? I grew up in L. A.. Okay New York cops. We had there was a big dare thing in ninety whenever and they would. They'd always confiscate the drug dealers. Cars put dare shit on it and then they'd either parade around go. Ha Ha look what we got or turn them into the race cars that they would drag race the kids we had English town. So there was like a ninety five like Viper unlike crumbs that the drag race in me and Larry would go to English town with our mustangs like sometimes like there would be the cops there and the kids racing. There's like a viper and a Camaro F body Camaro Shit that they clearly look pretty. Nice sweet dude you. The only did six months but so there is.

"Wouldn't like the stuff that they spend their lives developing to be better known outside the the academy And so I've really are small way. I think of trying to get some of that really really good work into more of the mainstream or into a you know to a broader popular audience And so you know the the interviews that people have. I think our efforts to try to talk to an audience who aren't all trained academics Because I I think you're right there is. There's a lot of really good stuff out there and I confronted with my students all the time. We're all say something and they'll give this look and I'm like I'm not making this up. I can give you like a stack of sources right that you know I I can give you. It's like math homework and I can show my work. I can show you where I'm getting this and I can show you where the social scientists have done this survey work and they've shown you know this isn't just a supposition position. But that's really it is. It's hard to get out there It's hard to get out because it isn't easy right. It doesn't naturally lend itself to sound bites it's often. It often adds complexity right. We talked about the media and you know one of the questions that sort of arises. I think immediate culpability in reducing things to either oars or two simple you know either a both an either or really simple bite size pieces of information when and I tell my students all the time any question worth asking any problem worth addressing is worth asking or addressing because it's really complicated and it's it's really complex So I think anything that people like you and hopefully Brad in I in the other people that we've had on the podcast and other people are doing these things. I think. That's a really vital role of trying to form. Sort of a bridge between that kind of can be kind of ESA teric material oh and a kind of simplistic sort of popular conception either pro evangelical or Anti Evangelical or whatever and that's part of what Brad and I wanted to do. The PODCAST has given perspective. That understands. I think we can present. Like here's what it's like within that evangelical context. Here's what they're thinking and feeling feeling when these things happen but in a way that can also be critical of that Yeah yeah and I that I really appreciate that about your show show. I really appreciate that you both lend. This personal lived experience as well as this as well as well developed academic understanding understanding of your subject matter. And I think it's great that that you're putting putting it out there in an accessible format as obviously I'm a fan of podcast. We're talking talking on one right now. You know and I think it's a I think it's the best medium with which to really try to tackle and contextualized these complicated complicated sorts of things. And so I I really think what you're doing with straight white American. Jesus is very laudable and I think it's great how you're in selecting these scholars with with very well developed expertise. But that their work. Has I think just a enhanced social relevance and this sort of moment in history Because of the things that we've been talking about the the just the the do the amount of power that that this group that we all have been a part of and now spend our time still thinking about even though. Oh we're doing it from the other side That that means something and I think what you're what you're doing. The show is is really really really great in in servicing that those topics in that content so I wanted to make sure that I said that and just and encourage you about not to keep doing it because it's it's great and I'm glad that they're scholars out there putting their their workout in such a accessible way. We appreciate tape that I do want to add and this is just for all those Evangelical is out there that In ways that would horrify our elders. There's Dan and I got together. In North Hampton Mass where close to where he lives and we took a walk on a sort of rainy spring day day. And we were talking about doing this thing. And we went to Jonathan Edwards Church. Which is now the church that Dan attends and it's a very welcoming and affirming? Churches Church a huge Rainbow flag greets. You as you walk up to it We then hatched the details for the podcast at a predominantly lesbian bar are In amherst mass and so the origin story of the PODCAST is horrifying to our Evangelical Lisa. Others as one might imagine so as it as it should be so Kudos to you could have just worked some some more dancing in there. I think thank you. Scandal is the baptists more you know. I'm sure somebody was dancing in the pyrite. Dancing leads the podcasting. Whatever whatever Oh man? I wonder if I wonder if my. Oh Mutter Indiana Wesleyan. Listen has any rules against podcasting. Now anyways well I wanNA thank you both for for coming on the show and talking to be a little just a little bit about both your stories as well as As well as your work on on your show where can people find either view online as well as where can they find your podcast together so we are a straight straight white American.

"Hello and welcome to exponential. I'm your host chastain. It's could be back. I'm glad to be speaking to you again. I took most of the summer off Because of some personal reasons as well as just trying to think through what the real focus of this show should be moving forward And it was a good time for me to just sort of rest and reset and reflect on on what that might mean and what might be valuable to people that are leaving evangelicalism or have left evangelicalism and the broader public at large and And I really I wrote about this earlier in a pot. I'm sorry not a podcast by blog posts that I published earlier in September Humber Just sort of detailing. Why why I took that time off? And what the new focus of the show will be This this show will always have stories of people who have left evangelicalism that seeks to validate and express their their grief in their trauma and all of those parts of their experience and find validation and acceptance for their lived experience. But one of the things that I think I may have been remiss on in the past has been really to focus also on the sorts of triumphs triumphs that we can have after leaving Joel. And that's something that I hope to be able to focus on the future further. We do you have an election coming up next year and White Evangelical ISM is at its zenith right now So it's very very important to the broader public to understand why this population why white evangelicals especially those in political power and cultural power are so influential fluential right now and to understand the history of that particular movement and what that all entails so my hope in the coming year is to really be able to focus on those two things to be able to you. Talk more clearly about the joys for finding purpose after evangelicalism as well as detailing through conversations with people that do study evangelicalism awesome or cover evangelicalism and being able to conceptualize that in a format pets. That's easy to understand and access and part of that includes includes the interview that you're going to hear right now with professors Bradley Onishi and Daniel Miller they are the co-hosts of the straight white American. Jesus podcast and on their show they really do a wonderful job of breaking down a lot of different elements of white evangelical ISM through their episodes so through their interviews with other religious scholars. I highly recommend that you check it out. They are also both former evangelical pastors so they bring both their lived experience as well as their professional All their professional rigour to the subject matter at hand which is often White Evangelical Jellicoe ISM. which is the focus of their most currencies in which you can find on itunes or spotify or wherever you listen to the show? Finally there's one other change to the show the one to mention here up top and misses something that I started thinking about at the end of two thousand eighteen and was hoping to roll out earlier but alas I want to build a form of economic reparations directly into the advertising business model this show so I'm going to be getting. I'm going to begin selling being advertising space for the show but fifty five percent of all funds earned from host. Read ads on the show will be going through. Twenty Twenty Two nonprofit support African American indigenous and LGBTQ populations if this is economically feasible. I hope to extend into the future. my first announced ounce launch partner is brave comments they are an organization that seeks to elevate the voices of students working within and beyond Christian universities in the United States listeners. May Be familiar with this show. I'm sorry with this organization because I spoke to one of the CO Executive Directors. Here's Aaron Green on a prior episode of the show discussing her work at Azusa Pacific University. they are a great organization. And I'm really really happy to to have them on board as a launch partner for this effort but the hope is that through sewing advertising. That is something that I can. I do to make this into a more financially feasible venture as well as really put my money where my mouth is and say this this this is important and it's something that I'm going to do from the very beginning this is not an afterthought this is something that I will be doing in in an effort to uh-huh prioritize the things that I say I value which include things like like reparations or giving money to organizations that do do a lot of work with populations that are impacted by jellicoe resumes discrimination. So that is that particular Taylor information so you may hear advertising later on in future episodes. That's not something that has happened before But I do hope to make this. This work work a bit. More sustainable and I I'm just recording this from from my home I do have a day job and everything else. So that is part of the plan and you can send me questions or whatever at contact at exponential go podcast dot com and.

Hey Daniel, thanks for joining us today as a way of getting started tell us about yourself. Thanks for having me. So my name is Daniel Miller. I am the marketing director of one of the top worldwide, Email marketing services, benchmark Email, and yeah, I'm happy here. Thank you. How did you get interested in this in the Email marketing to be honest? It's funny when I was thirteen just thirteen I started my own. In computer consulting business, pretty much fixing all of my mom's friends computers in doing all this stuff and slowly. But surely NFC turned into a real business where it had about a two hundred clients that would call me every other week. I was doing this while living in Spain. And one of the things that made my service different from anyone else is that I I was being paid as a recurring service. So, you know, I mean, if you call any technician, they come, and they Bill you buy our spent I would go to companies and say, hey, you can call me as many times as you want at this flat rate. So I was naive at the time. I thought that was the best idea because everyone loves that. But then I found out that my phone was off the hook every single minute of the day. And I just could not handle that. So I turned to Email marketing, I found that sending out kind of weekly, newsletters with the top problems that most of my customers would have a thing. Like Daniel, my mouse, stop working, can you come check it out. I would make the travel all the way they are come to find out. It was a wireless mouse when they forgot the change the batteries, so simple things like that reminders and task through Email marketing is something that really lowered my call amount to allow me to gain more and more customers as well. So that's kind of how I got into it. And then I found benchmark chemo funny enough on Craigslist posting longtime ago almost ten years ago now, well, time flies, and yeah. When I first started with them, it was about twenty of us when I got the job. I didn't really know what was going on and still do. But sure they saw that. This was a real started. This was a real business. Then I knock on wood ten years later were in a fifteen different countries in nine different languages. So I was in the right place at the right time. Excellent. And what do you focus on today? So today as the marketing manager for. For the company in so many regions. Our focus is really keeping a steady brand all the way through all of our countries and languages, which I think is one of the most difficult task especially since so many countries. It's just totally different right? Like Email marketing in Japan is one hundred percent different than how it is here. They don't really like flashy emails. They're more on the text base. China's the complete opposite. They love all the flashing. Here in the US is going more towards storytelling versus selling. So, you know, it's it's been a really interesting experience, the try to focus on a brand consistency throughout so many different regions and countries. So yeah. And what have you seen change in the last few years? I think the adoption of Email marketing itself, I would say five years ago when I would go to a conference or a trade show, and I would tell people, hey, I'm an Email marketing, they would immediately relate that the spam. And I think that that's feeling has kind of changed throughout these past couple years through people really understand the value of Email marketing, and people are more open to sign up to companies and brands that they trust because they understand now that Email marketing is adding value to their experience not just trying to sell. And would you say add value wh-what possessed? Obviously depends on what they're sending right? And how often they're sending it? Absolutely. Yeah. And that is one hundred percent and the responsibility of the company and the brand. But I mean, it's something that the brand sees right away. You know, if I'm a consultant and I start in..

And I of course, I'm excited to bring on a Daniel Miller if you'll remember we had him on for Texas fantastic read. And of course, it really gobbled up like two hours because there was so much to discuss Daniel, I actually love that Daniel Miller, president of the Texas nationalist movement, a sixth generation Texan, if you will born and raised in Texas, and and it is all about leaving the union kind of an interesting an interesting book, I tell us what's going on right now. Yeah. Since the the release of the book, it's been it's been strangely. For me. I'm really humbled by the reception that it's had. But the the thing that has really I think floored me through this entire process has been the backlash that we received whether whether it was a Facebook suspending our advertising account at the time we decided to. To advertise the book tour or the most recent which is the the publisher and the distributor having to let me know after researching for five weeks that Amazon in their in their estimation is working long term to try to suppress the book and kill it. Wow. Is it look I'll I'll say this. I'll admit. I was very skeptical. Look, I'm not a conspiracy theorists contrary to probably what the Texans opposition would think. So they I'm also not very not very familiar with the book business. But one of the things that happened was we noticed that about six weeks ago with low over all the sudden out of nowhere copies of Texas. Were they were the book, the hardcover was restricted to prime members only, and you know, you never know what Amazon's gonna do, marketing wise. Right. So I just I called it to the attention on a weekly conference call with the publisher. They said they'd look into it. We'll next thing.

"Right it's another addition of the post show here on free talk live i am mark daniel miller who's the author of a book on texas i've heard of brexit what's texas if you understand brexit you're definitely in the ballpark essentially just as brexit was a term that the entire effort to get the uk out of the eu that term brexit came about because of that tax it has been used to describe the process of of texas also becoming a selfgoverning independent nation now is texas the only state of the union that can in its constitution can succeed i've heard that yeah it really is a fairly common misconception and one that i spent a good bit of time tackling in the book when you begin to understand what the true nature of the federal union the united states of america when you understand what the true nature of it is it becomes immediately apparent that no state in particular has an exclusive right to leave the union it's one that's actually shared by every state unless the state itself prohibits it which is actually the case for say the state of nevada where in their constitution they have a specific provisions forbidding them from leaving the union so it is definitely a right that enjoyed by any state of the union so texas doesn't have anything particularly in their constitution about succession no but here's what's interesting also about that is that when you begin to look at the various state constitutions like a good example would be new york almost immediately after the ratification of the united states constitution for you know well almost one hundred years plus new york kelly provision in their state constitution that explicitly reserved the right to leave the union then you get into into texas specific and what you find is is that since the eighteen thirty six constitution of the republic of texas back for the nine years we were an independent we're probably all the way through to the current postwar constitution you you find this very explicit restatement of the right of self government really to paraphrase if you're going to set this is the mall it essentially says that all political powers inherent in the people all free governments are founded on their authority instituted for their benefit and the people have at all times the right to reform alter or abolish their form of government in such manner as they may think expedient that sounds very close to the declaration of independence awarding absolutely jeffersonian i mean there's no there's no doubt with the inspiration ask you know given the history that texas had with mexico when and especially with the mexican revolution it's no it's no doubt that the founders of texas and subsequent generations wanted to ensure that that right was enshrined in currently at article one section two of our constitution which again as i post civil war constitution so this right of selfdetermination is is something that is enjoyed by people sometimes explicitly sometimes implied but it is a fundamental right no less i think that mostly what jefferson was just trying to say is ultimately if enough people are mad at their government the government isn't gonna function these are people that had in the case of jefferson not yet they hadn't yet entered into the you know putting their the blood and their sweat and their tears behind their their commitment but at the very least they intended to and the declaration of independence just basically says that ultimately if people are unhappy enough your government isn't gonna function and in that case the government didn't function because they were we're willing to put bullets in you know the people that were climbing the govern them well and and really when you begin to examine texas especially in the book is a channel twenty plus years of of advocating for this position for taxes into this book and one of the things that i wanted to make sure of was that not just texans but but people that were looking out at what we're doing here in texas could understand that if they're within the federal union right now the grievances the texans have a large majority are those same grievances that are shared by people in many other states now we have some unique situations that are here in texas you need dire situation of course but there is this common thread you get away when people ask me why support for texas has grown i have.

"One of the things again that we've seen time and time again is the will of the texas voters settled by the federal courts and so you know when you look at it it's one of the reasons that i wrote the textbook is when you look at it over the last twenty years what you see is this glowing oldest this this a discontent if you will we're texans are just looking at this you know we have to make a decision here who is going to govern us is pets are going to govern texas or we're going to allow to be governed two and a half now even if you could achieve this goal how would it come about you know that california does have that ballot measure you mentioned a moment ago where they would split the state into three pieces but they would stay part of the bar part of the united states of america does texas have the legal ability to separate itself from the rest of the country yes it's interesting because there there is a persistent myth out there that texas has some exclusive in special light looking tension but i'm making the book and that made publicly for twenty years now the only one but state has the white to relationship you know for us you know when you hear people talk about yours a constitutional prohibition against it they can't point out the provisions in the constitution that forbids it and you know just just a basic constitutional understanding if the prosecution silent on it was onto the states so you're in texas we will article one section two of our post civil war constitution political power isn't herring and the people and the people have at all times we in able light you all to reform or abolish mary's we may think expedient so at the end of the day much like the brexit referendum that we witnessed with the scottish independence twenty fourteen ultimately comes down to a vote of the people of taxes daniel miller is my guest he's the author most recently of texas why and how texas will lead the union you believe this will happen will it happen through a popular referendum where you put this to a vote of texans yeah i mean ultimately the contention here is that it's not a hopeless the ability.
