James West on invention and inclusion in science
"James west was born in nineteen thirty one and grew up in prince edward county virginia in before we dove into his research and work as a mentor. I wanted to know more about little kid. Jim and his relationship to science the desire to know how things work and why they were was my biggest motivator and i Completely forgot about this on purpose. But i took my grandfather's pocket watch support hundred and five pieces zenit. But i couldn't get it back together which resulted in rather severe punishment but it didn't tear my desire to know and understand how things work and so i was told that i could only take things apart that weren't working and that was the wrong thing. Say to me. Because if i could break it i did so i could get it. Why caesar now you're you're breaking stuff you're like look it doesn't work so right. Okay i mean were you. Were your parents. Supportive of your interest in in engineering and science absolutely not i was going to be the doctrine brother the data stove. I swear versa. They didn't care which would went. Only that it went in one of those two directions and When i told my father that i was changing my major from biology to physics He introduced me to two black men who have. Phd's and chemistry that were working in the post office score poem order on the railroad because the best job they could get was teaching at high school. And that didn't pay enough to support their families and he thought that i was well on the way to becoming one of them because You could be a preach at teacher lawyer doctor. But that was about it and terms of professions or black people and prince edward county virginia but in the face of all that jim stuck with it he graduated from temple university with a degree in physics and then went on to work at bell. Labs for more than forty years and his big invention with gearhart. The foil electric microphone didn't come from trying to solve one specific problem. I didn't. I don't think sat down and looks invent a better microphone. That was not the motivation at all. The motivation was why does nature behave in the way that it does. And and if i can understand that then how can i apply my knowledge to improving or to make things work better or lasts longer in this case. Oh to increase lifetime right okay. So so mu- because my understanding of this gym and you can. You can grade me. And i'm i'm worried about my grade but so basically this is really basic but microphone convert sound into an electrical signal right and it needs power to do that and you. Youtube found a material that you could basically be kind of permanently so you know basically permanently charge so instead of like necessarily needing an extra battery in there you know. You've you've got it without that. And that material that you found was essentially teflon foil urinate less. Okay okay. well now. That i've got my a plus in science. Let's let's talk. Let's talk more about bringing people new stem the thing. It's the thing that you're passionate about thinking that i'm passionate about so you know in your experience what works or if you feel like it's more importantly what doesn't when you're trying to bring people into snap well i think honesty is is The the very important role. It's not all roses so we get some thorns to nature. Doesn't always behaving the way that you you'd think it should. And and i think honesty's important because you want to succeed and and if you know that nature is not always going to work the way you'd think it works this gives you the fortitude to continue to your investigation will continue looking for a solution to a particular problem. In other words. There are two sides stored the glory side. And then there's the the grunge side but even more important science and technology got us to where we are and it's the only thing that's going get us further or out of whatever difficulty that we have a global warming all these problems. We need more diverse teen stem. diversity has been shown to be have an advantage. I used to worry about brainstorming sessions. Where all the white guys over here. And i was over ear but guess what solution west somewhere in between. And this is what. I learned that. Even though i taken same courses you know the same disciplines. I think differently as the black man than white males to yeah but this diversification is what makes this country great and what is very disturbing is that were not taking full advantage of our natural resources in human beings that can work and be productive in the field and this is the reason that i continue to push to make it available in. Jim's been pushing for a long time you can trace his efforts back to nineteen seventy at bell labs. Winning helped form the association of black laboratory employees all the way to jim's work today with his graduate students at johns hopkins university and nonprofit called the end genuity project. They offer math and science programs to students in baltimore public schools. Jim told me a story about joining their board of directors. Back in two thousand fourteen. When when i was asked if i would be interested in joining booed i wanted to know what the program's really all about and what i found. Was that the majority of students in the program mayhem and that. This did not represent the demographics of the city of ballroom. So i said looking. Put me on the board. But i'm going to make some changes. I am a change agent here because this does not represent city baltimore and not enough black people and women in the scrotum but today the program is eighty percent underrepresented naarden winning big shift. Not only that are the last time i looked two years ago. We graduated one hundred students all of them. Fellowships and scholarships seven were admitted to johns hopkins. And by the way these changes were made without ever touching the requirements for the permanent. Okay so what does this say to you. The says that they're talented people out there that we're not taking advantage if we can make that kind of change in the city of baltimore within a finite number of years with this is certainly an indication to me that there are underrepresented minority and women who are in love with science and really really look for opportunities to get in and and genuity project made that offer and they they took us up on it and i'm so glad they did. Okay so jim. I hope you don't mind me sharing this. You just tell me if you don't want it in the episode but by the time this interview comes out you will of turned ninety congrats birthday. Well thank you. So what's your advice for young scientists for young inventors who may be see themselves in you. What advice would you give them. Well there's so many things that i can think of. But i but more importantly is to follow your star you know. I'm pretty sure that whoever made me said make a scientist and a not fulfill that responsibility us. Oh i think that the happy people those people that are doing what they love to do. And if it science gray but in many cases you don't know whether it science not because you haven't had the exposure right that would tell you whether the something you think you would be interested in doing so Museums of books on and on and on learn. Learn as much as you can as early as you can. And the only major major advices learn all the math that you possibly can because it

The red sox receive outfielder slash d. H. franci cordeiro Right handed pitcher josh win. Chaussee three players to be named later one from the mets to from the royals. The royals get outfielder. Andrew benintendi and the mets received outfielder khalil. ali now benintendi. As soon as he showed up last year he got hurt and he was offered a year. He only played like two weeks and batted one. Oh three he had a strained ribcage but coming into last season he was a career. Two seventy seven hitter and averages about eighteen home runs a game and he's due to make six point six million this year in his second. Rv'er so he has Another year. Sorry i know he has another two years after that. So i argue but the royals will now put benintendi in left field every day because if you think about with mary field i guess he's an outfielder our second baseman so a combination of him. Edward olive arison. Michael eight taylor. But the red sox for their part we'll get cordeiro which is a mix of alex dugo number. How highly regarded wasn't a dodger system.

Does he move as? Does he has super speed is that correct? Hey, this is not as ultimate forum. Is it? He has one form the Boris Forum that comes later that ends up being his downfall. So I'm really not engaging with that form very much in this argument. A hardcore Albert West has seen throughout the majority of the Games, is sort of one thing and they decided for whatever brilliant reason they wanted to kill the character but for good allegedly at the end of Resident Evil Five. So they had him Kinda desperate act take this or Obama's virus and inside of him and it ended up making him worse and they ended up eating him as a direct result. Gotcha okay. Is that the one where you had to have that countermeasure injected himself like a few times a day? No that's actually a standard form because. As he gets more and more powerful as he grows in power, he does tend to start being a little bit unstable as far as how science works. So there is a countermeasure that he does need. I believe it's every x number of hours a few times a day. In order to kind of like keep him balanced. You know sort of like some people just they need to take something to keep themselves balanced. He's like that but physically because you know he doesn't want to get sick. got. It. So he doesn't get that every few hours bad things happen to him. He loses control or his power draws but negative things happen to him. Crack negative things happen to him. That is correct but it is several several hours.

So that's when you really started to work on your lifestyle habits and everything definitely but up until then just kind of just haphazardly training the whole way through so that took a while.

I've seen so many people and you might have to I mean that you see they say them for a while and then they just disappear disappear because they may be over training. They've tried to go hard too fast. They they're not seeing the results they want because there are only focusing on the exercise portion. They're not doing the right type of exercise.

The closer we get to these Paradigm, the more the balance of power shifts, and now these companies. Now, these governments begin to need asking for permission whether it's from courts or whether it's from people. All right. Three more tiny questions. Do you believe you're guilty of any crimes got I'm committing guilty of so many crimes? Are you guilty of crimes have you spent? That's the thing you can't exist. I think. I'm going to let that one. Go You answer it? Do you believe that people would know about mass surveillance if you worked for you? The question is really more public consciousness. There were people who had good grounds to believe mass surveillance existed or even had a certainty surveillance existed before I came forward again, there had been reporting on this. There've been court cases about this. But it didn't penetrate the the public consciousness. because. It was allegation right It was speculation and this is what people miss again about the importance of two thousand thirteen. Surveillance was the topic of conversation. But the importance of the conversation was about democracy. It's so clear today. When we see all of the allegation rhetoric being passed around that if we are going to forge a public consensus. We have to have access to a shared set of facts that are mutually agreed upon and what twenty thirteen did. Was it moved the conversation from speculation to certainty from allegation to fact, and the distance between speculation. In fact, in a democracy is everything because it does not matter what you know. It does not matter what you are. Sure is true. It only matters what you can prove to other people although you are you a certain Malays sets in and everyone just accepts it but that's another that's another topic. Into that you know people are like, yeah I'm being spied on I. got it. But but in that context I, think it's actually very common to say people don't care to say accept it but I've given talks. I ages about this and the response that I get. When when I hear questions about that, when asked about people actually care the care very much but they feel powerless to trinity verifying so they adopt a period a position. Of. Laissez faire I don't care as a psychological coping mechanisms otherwise you are being victimized and that's a difficult to live with. All right. I'm going to read the first sentence said, this is the last question is actually is for Monica Lewinsky my name is Edward Joseph Snowden I used to work for the government but now I work for the public it took me nearly three decades to recognize that there was this distinction and when I did it got me into a bit of trouble at the office. Make. A bit of trouble What would you feel? This is real Monica Lewinsky. What would you feel is the best ending to your story I e, where does he hope to see himself in five to ten years and I would add on? It seems like a Lonely Life Edward What you've done where many people think. Other people think you're a trader. Some people think you're a hero but you are essentially by yourself with with Lindsay who you since married a cat I'm sure there's cats involved. Love cats it's GONNA. Say Actually I'm this is the irony that I think a lot of people don't understand appreciate about technologists. I was far more alone before twenty thirteen than I am today. As you said with Lindsay and hopefully, I'll never be alone again. Which is a great comfort even in exile. But I signed up to serve overseas right I. volunteered to go to Geneva place. I didn't speak the language I volunteered to go to Japan. This for me from my perspective is just another foreign on behalf of the United States. I'm just working for. The People broadly rather than an agency but when you think about that that thing. I had never been more connected to a wider world than when I'm looking at a screen and to a lot of people that seems weird. But for me, that's what I love. I like to be able to reach different people in different places and I think this is the fundamental promise of the Internet. It ties US beyond distance ties US beyond culture ties, US beyond language, and it builds bonds of fraternity. It can create an understanding and that for me is the great hope we are today living in a time of division. and. We are living in a time of constant exploitation I and it is because an imbalance of power. When I think about the future, I don't think about You know when I think about what the future looks like it's not a good future for me. It's how we heal. It's how things get better. If things. Get better. For the Internet if things get better for the United States, they will get better for me and there will be a day when I will be home. Thank you. All right. Edward I have to say I think you're still in love with the Internet may have never existed unfortunately it's really interesting. That was very. But that's okay like that disagreement that that space for just completely contrasting as to see the same things that spectrum of human perception. That's what makes a beautiful said you still believe you're very rex. Speaker the truth are men DEX speaker of A. All all of that stuff is misinterpreted as. Bad. But I will say there's one moment in the the thing is sort. that. People say Speaker of truth I don't want anyone trust me that's actually point. The whistle blower doesn't matter. The provenance of the information doesn't matter the authenticity of the truth of that's what matters. It's okay to doubt me. It's okay not to trust me. It's okay to think bad guy fine but use that skepticism that I lacked so many years ago and then apply that to the people in society who actually wheel power actually wield influence. Not Whistleblowers who are going to spend. So much of their life in exile right I will say one of the most working parts of the book is you looking at the kid in Indonesia? through the screen, it was not a good way to see people across the world. I think that was a great moment in the book and I would recommend people read this Edward Thank you so much. This has been very much longer than we thought but it's a really terrifically written book Joshua Cohen help you and novelist is correct. I had was very fortunate. I've got a a good friend of mine one of my closest competence and lawyer Ben Wisner He's very literal guy and he had a very literary friend Joshua Cohen which for me I'd never written a book on my own before. He's one of the greatest novelists I've lost. He was a tremendous resource to help me structure this and think about how I could tell my story in any case I really appreciated if anyone whatever your opinion about Edward Snowden is you should read this book. It's a really important embracing document about where we are and I do believe in part I. It's hard to figure out why you did what you did but I think you did there was a great Romance with the Internet here, that's a really interesting part that I was surprised about, and also some of the thoughts on where we should go. We'll see what happens to you over time. We definitely will if not. I don't speak Russian them and I hope that you keep speaking out especially about the issues of transparency and and the use of data against its citizenry and the lack of transparency, and that is perhaps the greatest contribution whatever again people think of what you've done and how you did it people understanding and understanding what they're consenting to is I think the most important part of any message that you or anyone else's delivering in any case. Thank you. Thank you for everything you do in key. It's not working it's not working. Thank you so much. All.

"Zimmerman and Jason Epstein. Who He knew from Harvard Epstein soon offered him a job at the art department at Doubleday Anchor in New York City. He started out doing paced up and corrections of other people's work and eventually started designing book covers. He was good at it and he was efficient which left him time to work on his own projects and to do additional work as a commercial illustrator in his own work. He was primarily drawing in black and white because he knew from his day job that it would be hard to find a publisher for full color illustrated books at the time but the covers that he was drawing while at anchor. Usually we're in color often with subtle muted tones. There are people who've written whole papers about Edward Gorey's use of color on the book covers. He was drawing for publishers especially since his own his own books are so often in black and white. Gorey's first book which was the Unstrung Harp or Mr Erase writes. A novel came out in Nineteen Fifty. Three this is about a frustrated man. Trying to write a novel it's the closest to an autobiographical work probably of all of his work. The listing attic followed in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. Neither of these books sold particularly well there and later on. Gory bought up copies that he found on remainder tables to give them as France's presence. Soon after moving to New York gory found one of his truly great loaves. And that was the New York City ballet under the helm of its founder. George Balanchine. Gory had been to the ballet before he had gone as a child in Chicago. But after attending a few performances in the nineteen fifty to nineteen fifty three season he started attending more and more of Balanchine's productions until starting in nineteen fifty six. He was attending literally every performance. This took dedication apart from the obvious that is a lot of ballet to his hand. At Christmas time it meant attending nearly forty performances of the nutcracker granted an interview with him where the interviewer was like. Please explain this to me. How are you able to sit through thirty nine performances of the nutcracker laughing so hard I feel like should one day? Someone attempt to write a biography of me would be like and she saw star wars thirty seven in the so. I understand a little bit how you could go see the nutcracker forty times in a row well it was forty times that are row for like years and years in a row like he did it every season and then be saved all of his ticket stubs from all of these trips to the ballet. He loved the ballet. So much. That in Nineteen Seventy. He wrote the LAVENDER. Leotard or going to the New York City ballet in this initially came out in playbill as part of the celebration for the Bally's fiftieth anniversary when the lavender leotard came out as its own standalone book Edward Gorey hand painted covers for its first run addition because the printer had not been able to match the exact right shade of lavender. This is how dedicated he was to the New York City Ballet. I love him so much. Gory wrote one other book explicitly about ballet during his career. The Gilded Bat which came out in nineteen sixty six but the influence of ballet is clear in his other works as well. The people he draws often have turned out toes elongated extended poses and even when something terrible is happening to them a sort of graceful presence on the page on nights. When Gory wasn't going to the New York City ballet he was often at the opera or the movies and he became a very recognizable presence around New York City. He typically war a full length for coats over jeans shirt and Converse sneakers and he wore a lot of very heavy jewellery especially rings. A lot of which was made out of iron or brass was very recognizable person. So if you WANNA throw together a fun. Halloween costume go is Edward Gorey. It's pretty easy to put together. And it's kind of nerdy and cool He also started accumulating the books that would eventually grow into his own personal library. During this time he loved to read any tended to come back home with a book anytime he left the House. A particular favorite was Agatha Christie. Who He had been reading and rereading since childhood he also loved Jane Austen describing her as his idol. Another favourite was anthony trollop although he did not revisit trump's work very much as he got older and he also loved poetry particularly the work of W H Auden. He did not love everything he read though and he was very candid about authors and actors and anyone else that he did not particularly like so he made no secret of the fact that he despised nearly everything by Henry James in spite of the fact that he had drawn the cover art for some of Henry. James's books there is a little sign in the Edward Gorey House today. That says please know Henry Tapes in the Edward Gorey House love it. So Much Gorey's New York City apartment also became home to a number of cats many of them named after characters in mercy's sake Shaquille Booze eleventh century Japanese novel the tale of Ganji another lifelong favourite work of literature throughout this time in New York City. Gory was writing and illustrating his own books. Even though most people remember him for his art he really thought of himself as a writer. I with every line he would think. Can this make a drawing? But he didn't actually start illustrating until he was satisfied with the words and he revises he went. He would get one sentence exactly right before he moved onto the next one in nineteen fifty. Seven Doubleday published the doubtful guest which carries a lot of the hallmarks of his later. Work a peculiar guest. Who looks a little like a penguin shows up at a mansion inhabited by a that looks somewhere between Victoria and warden? Whatever it is. The guest is ill mannered and weird and it has been bothering the family for seventeen years at the end of the book. The very strange the object lesson came out a year later. I tried to figure out how to sum up the object lesson in a sentence. It's not really possible in some tongs. And it's it's very surreal. It's one of the things that people point to you when they talk about. Surrealist influences on Edward Gorey so in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. The doubtful guest caught the eye of Edmund Wilson. He wrote about it in an article called the albums of Edward Gorey in the December issue of the New Yorker. This brought Edward Gorey a lot more attention than he had before and it was the first time a lot of people had ever heard of him. Although at this point he was creating so many book covers for Doubleday Anchor that they almost certainly seen something he had drawn before. Nineteen fifty nine was also when gory left. Doubleday anchor to serve as art director at looking Glass Library which set out to repackage classic works for Children. In addition to being the art director he helped select some of the twenty eight books that were ultimately published and he did illustrations for a few of them. The most famous was his illustrated war of the worlds which came out in nineteen sixty. He also illustrated a book of Ghost. Stories called the haunted looking glass and he also chose the stories themselves for that one looking glass library folded in nineteen sixty two and gory started doing some work for other publishers. As well as working freelance including designing advertisements he also started granting permission for his existing illustrations to be used in other work. One example from later in his career is an end of life. Planning booklet called. Before I go you should know my funeral and final plans. Which was distributed by funeral? Consumers Alliance sorta seems perfect for Edward Gorey to have agreed to Also in one thousand nine hundred eighty two the much beloved the Gash Lee Chrome Chinese debuted as part of a three volume work called. The vinegar works three volumes of moral instruction which also included the insect God and the West Wing. The gas leak chrome Chinese has never been out of print that same year. Nineteen sixty was a big year. Edward Gorey and Francis selloff launched the fantastic press stella was founder of the Gotham Book Mart. Which is a bookstore. In literary haven that had become the primary distribution point for a lot of coursework. Gotham Book Mart is where gory sat to hand paint all those copies of the lavender Leotard and when it opened an art gallery in nineteen sixty seven. He was one of its first exhibitors. Gory and steal off launched fantine press together because gory had trouble finding a publisher for a lot of what he had written and he wanted a way to publish it himself. The press's first book was the beastly baby. Which was the first word gory had ever tried to publish? It was one of the many books that came out under a pseudonym that was an Anagram or near Anagram of Gorey's own name in this case Audra weary the beasely baby features a big sticky shrieking gurgling. Baby that does horrible things burn the upholstery with acid. According to Gory people so angry. The mothers tore it up and mailed the pieces back to him. I have always contended that. Seeing this book as a kid is one of the reasons I never wanted. Children in the late nineteen sixties. Gory started spending more time on Cape Cod Massachusetts transporting his cats with him back and forth between there and New York City. He was always in New York during ballet season but eventually he would move out to the Cape permanently. We're GONNA talk about that after another quick sponsor break.

So hopefully they'll give you a little lift stay safe. Welcome to stuff. You missed in History Class. A production of iheartradio and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Tracy Wilson and I'm holly fine once you have read some of Edward Gorey's books. It is almost impossible to mistake his work for anyone else's unless maybe they are intentionally working in the style of Edward Gorey is black and white pen and ink. Illustrations look almost like engravings. They're just full of hatching cross hatching. The words are lettered by hand and the stories a lot of times unfold through their rhyming couplets or limericks there's some of their verse the plots a lot of times and really ambiguously or they never resolve at all it's this gloomy forboding typically Edwardian world that's populated by bats and Cassen odd creatures and grown-ups who are usually in very glamorous clothing and a lot of children who somehow come to harm one of his most well known books which was an Alphabet. Book called the gas leak. Chinese M is for Maude. Who was swept out to sea and is for? Neville who died on we the other. Tiny's are insulted by bears. They're sucked dry by leeches. Their run through with all. It's all very darkly whimsical. So if you don't know much about Edward Gorey's life. You might imagine the person who did this to be a Dour Englishman with the peak of his career. Maybe sometime in the nineteen twenties thirties. Whose own childhood was marked with a series of tragic deaths but Edward. Gorey was none of those things. No use the delightful. He's going to talk about today. Edward Gorey nicknamed Ted was born. Edward Saint John. Gorrie on February twenty-second Nineteen twenty five in Chicago Illinois. He was the only child of Edward. Leo Gory and Helen Garvey. Who divorced when he was eleven. His father later remarried singer and Guitarist Korean. Amirah who is most well known for being the Guitar Player at Rick's Cafe America and the movie Casablanca Gorey's parents remarried one another in nineteen fifty two already kind of whimsical and the family had predominantly Irish roots with ancestors on both sides emigrating to the United States in the mid to late nineteenth century. Although his father was Roman Catholic and his mother was Episcopalian. Gory himself wasn't particularly religious. And later on in his life would say that if he was anything he was a daoist. He was also quite precocious and he started drawing before he was even two years old. His oldest surviving drawing called. The sausage train is of the trains that passed by his grandparents house in Chicago and he drew that when he was about eighteen months old. And this is full of oblong shapes that are recognizably trains. But they were also very definitely drawn by a small child so it's not like he just without realistic. Drawings and people went vendor Kim's no I mean it's it is starting startlingly adept for an eighteen month old but still obviously a child's drawing by three Edward Gorey had taught himself to read and by five or six. Sometimes he would say seven and interviews very little bit. He had read two books whose influence on his own work is really obvious. Alice in Wonderland and Dracula. So if you ever read and Edward Gorey Book and said Man. This is like if Allison Wonderland had a baby with Dracula. You're exactly right. That was right and all the gory described his upbringing as very ordinary mid-western Childhood in reality he moved around a lot by the time he left for college. He had at least twelve different addresses including staying with relatives in Florida for a brief stretch after his parents divorce. He was overall a good student and he was bright enough that he skipped first grade but sometimes after changing schools his work would waver a little as he adjusted to a new environment by eighth grade. Gory was drawing illustrations for the school yearbook as well as participating in Typing Club Art Club Shakespeare Club and Glee Club along with serving as assembly. President he also some time in those years learned to play the piano. The most stable period Gorey's education before college was when he was at Chicago's Francis W Parker School. He enrolled there in the ninth grade and he graduated on June fifth. Nineteen forty two in while there. He was clearly interested in art hanging out with a click of other artistically inclined students and participating in his school our show in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine reportedly his senior yearbook had no photo of him but a blank spot where he draw himself in when people asked. Gory was offered several college scholarships when he graduated from high school but World War Two was underway by the time he got out of school and he was drafted into the United States. Army he was only able to take a couple of classes at the Art Institute of Chicago before reporting for duty from nineteen forty-three until after the end of the war he served stateside as a clerk. Spending most of those years at dugway proving grounds in Utah was a testing ground for biological and chemical weapons and countermeasures. Gory did not talk a whole lot about his world. War Two service when it did come up in interviews. He virtually always mentioned the dugway sheep incident which took place much later that was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight incident in which thousands of sheep were killed in western Utah purportedly by nerve agents from the facility. But it was well in the military that gory started writing plays as a way to occupy his time after being discharged from the army. Gory enrolled at Harvard. Which is paid for by the GI? Bill where he majored in art but in French literature. Even though he wasn't majoring in art he continued to both write and draw. He published poems and stories and the campus magazine signature as well as illustrating for the magazine and for other publications at Harvard. Gory became friends and for a couple of years. Roommates with poet Frank O'Hara they decked out their dorm suite with rented furniture and they made it into their own little sullom poet. Donald Hall and other Harvard Graduate is quoted in Harvard. Magazine is saying quote. They gave the best parties. O'hara was definitely the bigger partier of the two young men though so they eventually drifted apart a bit And this'll be an ongoing theme Gorey's life. He was charming and generous. Once you got close to him but he often preferred to be more solitary than social. Gory graduated from Harvard in Nineteen fifty and he stayed in Cambridge Massachusetts for a couple of years after that working in bookstores and helping to start the poets theater. The poets theaters founders and original members. Were all students or recent graduates from Harvard including Alison. Lurie John. Ashbery and Donald Hall. They would stage their own and revival works of poetic drama even though he had been writing poems and since high school and plays since his time in the army. A lot of Gorey's work with the Poets Theater was more as an artist and designer for both the stage and the productions programs and promotional materials. You can still see like scans of old programs that he drew in these years immediately after he graduated. Gory stayed in Massachusetts for a couple of years. Mainly working part time in bookstores before he made the move to New York City and that marked a huge shift in his life and career.

There's another human being in my office at Sammy. Sammy high two weeks in a row. I know this this is exciting. Spring through me and Norton head. You said Edward Like when you inter- I know but I didn't like in my head. I always Ed Norton. I don't know I think Ed Norton I knew you were big honeymooners fan growing up did. Have you ever seen an episode familiar with the concept honeyman character on the honeymooners called Ed Norton. So I hear Ed Norton I think of the card from honeymoon. Did he like what he call himself. Did he introduce himself like an Edward introduce themselves. Oh I didn't realize you guys were close friends. That's nice but I will say it's interesting. I've I've talked a lot over the years. There was a couple year period like ten years ago where I would see him a lot. He was in a lot of independent films. Incredible Hulk was out so I saw him a lot and then he doesn't that much we saw him like in friendly situations or like where he being paid to be there. And you were being paid to be exact transaction lake friendship got Scott it but I'm saying so. There's a bit of a history there. I always wear that he he. I felt like I was talking to him in the days when I had to ask him. What about the incredible whole us? H- I and that was a tense situation and at the time so I was always worried. He didn't love me but I think we we have a meeting of the minds. Now he was in here for a long time. We had it over an hour allowed. There was a lot to talk about. We talked a lot about his new film motherless Brooklyn which is based on a bestselling book from about Twenty Years Back And it's an excellent new film. It's kind of a film set in the fifties. Edward is the League Edward. He surrounded by an amazing cast of actress. Assembled including Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin. Bobby kind of volley who's who of New York actors and it's kind of in the Chinatown. La Confidential Savane. Very kind of old school film that you don't see made anymore. Certainly not the kind of film you see on the big screen anymore so I would definitely recommend that people should check it out support it and as I said it's a bit of a passion project for him he's been working on and off on it for about nearly twenty years. So yeah that's major. We cover a lot in this one and did you. I bet you didn't even talk about my favorite Edward Norton movie. What do you think what is this? Do you WANNA guess.

So that's why again again. This is why I'm here so I think based on that. It's probably going to be a really good Chitchat. That's how you judge like this guy's got did head Donovan shoulders. Good shoes on his feet from the top and the bottom. Nothing in the middle and it doesn't matter it's all you need interesting young lady.

"Hello and welcome to Monaco on culture I'm rebound on this program again to meet the author Edward Parnell his new book ghost land is a beguiling mix of memoir travelogue nature writing and literary journey to the life and work of writers with partial for the supernatural from the Ghost Stories of M R james to Conan Doyle's was known homes entails to Alan Garner's Cheshire wg say belt suffered the folk horror of the wicker man and the strange stories of Road Aikman and many more more a real lot more in fact that encompass myths local ghost stories film and TV and some lonely walks through churchyards but panels book he's moving the tool through a spooky literary landscape is also look at his own family's sad history both of his parents died before their time followed soon afterward by by his beloved older brother and nells diving into scary stories seems like an unlikely sort of therapy to this seems a good time to publish a book that searches for the strange not only are we just between Halloween and Guy Fawkes night that time when the spirit world it be closer to the human one than at any other but the fashion for new wave of folk horror and nature writing that looks at the readiness of nature in tooth and Claw Rav the purely pastoral is on the rise as well so to talk about ghost land here is Edward Edward thank you so much for joining us today a thoroughly enjoyed getting to grips with ghost land only to strip it right back to the the beginning for you you right so entertainingly about sort of watching public information films and I think some vhs on your TV yeah of your formative views of the spooky perhaps before the written word with TV and things like this tell us how you you got into the Spooky World I think thing I was always into it at least that's the sort of family legend on a on a holiday to Wales when I was about four I I famously asked the tour guide in Cavan Castle whether whether we might see the ghost that was the spectra lady that was said to haunt the place we didn't see it so after that I was yeah I remember I had had an US born in a W H Smith Book of horror films was full of these fantastic old stills from will all the universal pictures all those kind of things and a few more kind of way out there lurid ones as well so I wanted to see all of those films and often actually I did gets the most slightly disappointed because those still the best things in a lot of those mirrors but we didn't I remember before we had vhs my aunt and uncle had one so this would have been kind of I guess start of the eighties so I often got her to video me things she quite likes horror as well as think but she she would video stuff off TV so again this would have been kind of classic Bela Lugosi kind of staff so I watched that but gradually managed to get her to video of the stuff that I probably shouldn't shouldn't have been watching things like the weaker man and I remember getting my older cousin to get term an American Werewolf in London out of the realm screening of that at school like a private school and that was that was terrifying still still lives me to this day the scene in the woods transforms himself in the hospital bed absolutely absolutely terrifying we clearly shouldn't be watching eleven of all those false awakening bits with the Nazis on they they weren't good and I remember I watched that and I was stopping ran my aunts and uncles that evening and I couldn't get to sleep on my uncle snored quite loudly which was a little bit where wolf-like and that wasn't wasn't a great experience but I love the film and then of course went back to this sort of feeds into it this is your kind of young imaginings and awakenings the rest of it I had similar books to these when I was growing up I kind of found it quite difficult she look at these these pitches I love you went carbon also wanted to see the next you kind of do and you I don't like like I suppose that's that's the success of a lot of the material that you talk about in Ghost land is that is the is the thrill of wanting to see just enough to be scared but not enough to be absolutely petrified do you still have the same reaction to some of what we might call set texts of which will talk in a minute but do you have the same reaction into them are you the satisfaction of being frightened by these things or the air of eerie notice that surrounds them so they have the same thrill for you now as I did as a as a kid I think I think they do I think there's not that many things I read that well I suppose reading you don't get those jump out sort of scares than get whilst whilst watching something on the telly or or movie but certainly when I was researching and writing Ghoslan I reread the haunting of Hill House spy Shirley Jackson and I think that was the one thing that I really found quite uncomfortable reading and I know sort of going to sleep I was sort of the yeah not sure is that annoys two downstairs that that that got me for some particular reason the other things I kind of liked the way they're put together and I am as you were so hinting I love I love the atmosphere perhaps more I think that's the thing that now attracts me as much as anything else but certainly that did it for me again yeah and the book is such a wonderful mixture of other whether they're happy or unhappy bedfellows but you mix them two together so well a mixture of of this exposition this looker especially British spooky stories ghost stories weird fiction and nature writing and personal memoir you write very movingly about how you lost your parents your brother how did it come to pass this that you wrote the book in the way that you have that you've melded these things together so so successfully that it's difficult balancing actor too today well the book came around in quite an interesting way because I was a written one own book before a novel called the listeners which is class Gothic World War Two novel and I was I was procrastinating I guess messing around not writing another novel and just casting around for ideas I went with a friend of mine to wear 'em Jane's the Victorian Born Ghost story writer where he spent his formative years a little village called Great Liderman just outside bracing Edmunds in Suffolk and it's a it's an odd place as they strange Thamel lagoon of ruined church over the other side of it used to be a a grand hall in James's Day that sort of inspired him a little bit I think that's no longer there so I was casting around thinking for ideas and I was thinking about novel that might feature Jane's kind of bit part character in his Cambridge professorial guides but after I after I got home I wrote I just wrote a sort of a a blog piece about it basically Steve Lots of photos and editor harpercollins happened to see it's getting contact with me to ask whether it ever thought about writing a nonfiction book about the subject so of course I went obviously went down to meet him and we got on really well we bonded over a love of trashy movies things like that fairly terrible terrible although quite entertaining psycho mania is strange seventies Zombie Bicocca totes play strange part in that film some reason call so so I mean I'm not sure I can't remember now whether they're licking the toads in a sort of cane toad way yeah it's just an odd film it's not let's not go into that too much because we'd be all day trying to decode it but yes so I then went away thinking well would I like to ride a nonfiction book about it and I suppose I hadn't thought about tackling that subject before in that manner and then you have to kind of thing well how would I do it and I guess I was conscious that there's lots of academics probably knew a a lot more about the writers I'd be interesting talking about a lot more than I did so I wanted to them bringing the personal and it kind of struck me when the more I thought about it that lots the locations that happen to have an influence on some of the people that I wanted to write about that they kind of tied in with old family memories as well so there are places that we'd been on on family holidays like to the Suffolk coast which ties in with James as well as two people like see all of you in a related fashion awesome walking in Suffolk holidays through the new forest where there's lots of links to where Arthur CONAN doyle had his his holiday home which had where he he carried out various spiritual things with his Mesopotamia in spirit guided financial family holidays we re such psycho geographically dividend and so I guess I looked for those coincidences and found them but it seemed a good way to kind of also get into trying to tackle my own past I guess also in a kind of Mo James Wade sort of well it was there buried decided perhaps perhaps wisely or unwisely to it was time to go rooting around in there and you draw parallels I mean of see not just in terms of the geography you you were born and brought up and I still think you live in Norfolk Yup and the flatness of that landscape has inspired you certainly in the beginning of Ghozlan talk a lot about that and about the echo of the Mr James's landscape he lived in Suffolk Suffolk the next county down similar landscape I suppose how much is landscape affected or inspired your book and the and the books of the novelist the east side yeah I think landscapes a big factory my books I grew up in the fans at she in Lincolnshire on the Mike Grandmother lived in Norfolk so where I lived it with this kind of flat steroidal beak fields landscape which I know a lot of people I think find quite unearthing to me it's it's it's what I grew up with so I don't think do particularly but I was kind of enchanted by those slightly rolling hillsides and woodland's in West Norfolk where my grandmother some of the lived there were trees that you could go off in and there were lots of legends around the village you know there's something called the devils pit that was meant to be bottomless and all sorts of kind of little bits of folklore and things that tied in with various things so I was always kind of conscious of of landscape playing a big part and when you you look the works of Jane's and you can you can see absolutely there so when you walk round great live near where he grew up in the graveyard five yard where his father was vicar there's lots of gravestones bearing the name of mother soul who's the the terrible witch in the story the ashtray he obviously that kind of old park land landscape that would have been around there before the the big house was destroyed that's also in lots of that's really familiar thing in his stories but but then you you go to the the surf coast and there's a whistle come to you and this is kind of a warning to the curious they're also tied in with the adaptations which was how I first came to in sort of seeing those nineteen seventies made adaptations. Yeah these rich strand of British TV wasn't as play for today the reality of things that were short stories spooky stories that seems to be such a kind of sort of motherlode of Spooky S- going on there that was easily translatable or walls also there's an appetite for it to be translated onto TV much more so than there is today you look at a lot of TV and film in your bookers as much as short stories the things.

"Is coming to me and I walked away I felt bad 'cause the woman is scared the woman and then it just so happened that this woman was on I'm GonNa get a good point taking that we really should we burned it yeah so I bugging biofach and model t that's happening or do you want to be a part of that technology that helps correct or remind people if I can start by posting ugly picture of me in any measure are true liberation it's very tough off to imagine how people voluntarily break the addiction that are designed into these these platforms yeah for sure but do you ever then zoom even further out in in a knee cheat way go in what we're all just monkeys on this planet trying to stay busy toward dead does it matter if we're fucking writing a book or sitting looking at Vr. Does it matter I mean you have to I go there's some some greater cause that you'd have to believe in to say that one's better than another I mean all I can use personally go how do I feel after a day looking at instagram versus how do I feel about a day of riding a motorcycle or building something I just personally feel better on the ladder right yes yes yeah so it just got to be a truth for me yeah we've been watching it sort of I'm not even call it a guilty plea hurt I just didn't know there's this Netflix show altered carbon no it's really good sci-fi Black Mirror it's like you're I'm watching it going could end up like this for sure and it's kind of detective noir future it's gotTa blame all these seemingly pretty scared of it I mean I don't run to someone who's not concerned about it it'd be it'd be scarier to me if everyone was like this is the greatest life's never been better but there's so many studies of the Eddie rates are much higher with younger people it's not like we're we're unaware of the problem we certainly don't have a solution inside but I it comforts me a tiny bit that we recognize there's an issue here and I will say it goes back to I had an anthro class on the last day of class my professor made this speech and she said look man you've been here for the shortest chunk of this experiment I mean you've been here for one hundred fifty thousand years we've been in civilizations for ten thousand years and I want you to look at suffering were on the right trajectory so if you look at the over so long term comforted by the fact that we're on a trajectory and it looks a little scary right now but I do think it's continued to get better and better and better I don't think that's disputable in any way there's dips there's bad pal spells but we've been ever approaching what these ideals we set out to have you know but it requires you and I and everyone else Louis which honestly is why it's great to have a show like this I really mean it I think it's like they've got to elect to eat better right they have to do this sugar and high fructose Corn Syrup isn't going away and people have to go we're all getting obese it doesn't feel good we gotta help each other are better we all have autoimmune problems we got to help each other better too I mean we do I love the podcasts have done an Enron around the media system and basically said hey look at this people love having long actually nourishing talks with each other and we don't need you to do it in any way shape or form you're no longer needed thank you very much we're going to have those conversations with each other and a lot of people are going to tune in without your say so it's amazing amazing the demolished participation of yeah the Infos have to be aware that like we're doing it through the exact same device that we also think is causing all these problems Sir I'm going to try to get one question on one personal question would I think I am drawn to your attracted to you about is something I deeply relate to you about and I think it's why getting filmed without your permission issue I think it's why wanting to be in charge of the voice that gets put out making churchyard voice I think you and I are deeply attracted to control I think you're a pilot because you love control direct cause you love control and I'm wondering have you isolated where you think that stems from I mean Your Dad was a marine your dad was an environmental lawyer your your father worked in the Carter Administration the federal prosecutor this is a man who's fucking and control of his being in the dimensions yeah I think he would he would offer up all of it served in control and out of control and realms right no I mean my dad is a a figure of inspiration in many ways control sometimes can also be equated with de risking right you can assume that people want control because it helps de risk things or help them manage variable what whatever it is they're trying to achieve better and they and they feel more secure within control notionally right yeah one of the things that you would have to really know my dad to know his like he's done all these incredibly accomplished things across his life but two things really to me especially on he never defined his aspirations around money ever while always chose what was intellectually adventurous and socially contributive as his aspirations while and when many of his peer group call it chased money he did not lay and he's had a incredibly I could never resist he could have been one of the top corporate litigators in America among other things easily and he always went after the ideal of being contributive which there's no limit to my admiration for Yeah I also think that he'll say that he you know he was a among other things he he studied Russian history got a master's in Russian studies at Columbia before you the marines he sort of cited the only good idea of the Soviets was the five year plan the idea that you check in and reboot and he changed his career in ways that you would call for for someone who's in control he flipped the table up or pulled the cartridge out and put a new game in with regularity because he liked the challenge like climbing the hill of the beginning of the starting of things the hard work of division part but he changed careers full stop more times in his life it would make people white knuckle with fear the idea of that many restarts right yeah I I think the thing of even within control the idea of taking risk is is really important I'm not avoiding the question I think it can at a certain point part of getting older and wiser going well if I wanNA exercise the many dimensions of storytelling than I should just step up and do it right and then like as an actor be disciplined and work with the people who you don't want control you who you enjoy the surrender to their vision right so like for me like like and maybe there are choices to work on things in the earlier part of me career that today I think I would look at it and go I probably would say I didn't have that level of trust artistically that and and in a way now since I can make my own things maybe I prefer to make my own things and if you WanNa take shape them control them be the author of them but when Allah hundred and you redo comes along and says will you read Birdman by eight o'clock tomorrow morning like that it's the greatest feeling in the world to feel dropping through you that this is a huge swing with one of the people I admire most in the world as a filming Acre and to step inside him and service him yeah if he goes you know what I think it's got to be black and you let me put everything I've got into black and then he comes in and goes I was wrong it needs to be white and let me give you everything I've got to make it the other thing and just happy as a clam well I imagine you thriving very well under someone who does inside now no it and I imagine if you're in a position where you can start poking holes and stuff and you start losing confidence that it gets a little scary yeah but but you know one of the things that happens in this click bait world that we live in is that people build these very reductive narratives of antagonism or fill an archetype around they were the productive and righteous process of collaboration right and so like Finn You talk about Fight Club finches the most control I was getting sason in order he's pound for pound pound for pound across all technical departments of the craft one of the most talented people that I've ever worked breath and that's great but people don't even realize that he's one of the best directors of photography you'll ever work with he can apply makeup I've pictures of him fixing the glass in my hand when I fall through the cab you know knock myself through the cabinet one of my favorite pictures is fincher doing the blood on my face and putting the glass just where he wanted my one willingly he'll give you a line reading funnier than the one you had in mind right so it's like super the nuts just like whatever but that doesn't mean that me or Brad or Andy Walker or Helena in the mix lots of times it was like but wait a minute shouldn't this be you know it's like everybody was throwing it into the mix what people wanna make it out to later they argue it's like we didn't fucking argue we worked right we were doing the work it wasn't like me trying to assert myself it was like we're doing the work this is the work when a director knows that you love and respect their work and that you are inside their process bore them there's room for all kinds of passionate conversations passionate conversations about the thing or not ego those are work even as your friend and is someone who has long respected your level of talent in staggering. I forgot a little bit I watched Birdman we went and saw Birdman and now is like yes why does it this motherfucker do this more back I was like he's the greatest mother time made me forget oh right he's this fucking good it was like thrilling Krizner's It's not do it more I mean I understand you have a lot of pursuits in a lot of interesting that makes you a better person a better father but also you know I wouldn't mind that you did this once a year would you like each one more if there'd been more frequently I don't think so I think you like it more I'm fine but maybe every two years and you do it yeah I mean do drugs get better when you overdo them no a high tolerance goes like don't you want don't you want the like when it is it is fun something you think about like I'm pacing this out I mean sometimes it happens by is that you control I would've made motherless Brooklyn sooner right I could have gotten that cast together I read the script three or four years ago at least yeah and I think like it's not like always by design a little I'm sitting in the front of the car and having shown it to a bunch of people who had absolutely no idea what was coming in high school that that I'm slightly on the outside of of things I wish I was more included in which shows you how greedy the monkey mind is because I love the work I do and I love the people I work with and I've got I am blessed.

"Well Edward This you know this is an interesting namic for me because we're friends I know a lot about you and your infamously private and and I know you I know a lot about you but I'm not private away but I probably I probably got some assets that haven't been deployed here and time we met which I wonder if you remember what thousand percent on the flip side I was a fan before we met but then this all started happening MHM and then I think I wrote you it's like the old hair club for men ads where they say I'm not just the President I'm also a member I know I'm sort of like and also a fan. I shouldn't have this but I do and at least I own it is I have to admit people of high status giving me compliments feels extra good and a few different times you've been a lot of wind in my sails because you came to the hit and run premier and then you were very generous and gracious instead stuff publicly about it that was incredibly flattering and came to the ships premier that was flattering in yeah when I find you listen to the show it's still kind of hard for me to compute there's almost two people in your head there is the guy I know so there's you who I know and then there's Edward Norton the movie star who I I love in is a thing in Neri the tween shell meet almost if you had that with different people definitely I for sure I think that the interesting thing is that some people the integration of those things goes down smooth and maybe even enhances like you know Bruce Springsteen who I grew you know literally route ninety five corridor yeah came up on men in the normal amount to me like more than I can ever really say like many people feel but on meeting him he not only does not disappoint but the man the person you get to know somehow is so doesn't diminish your ability to have the same experience with the work yeah yeah in his case there's so much that's authentic about who he is flowing up into the work that there's not a disconnect right yeah whereas like I got to know David Bowie weirdly who also for me was he saved life kind of people you know what I mean you feel like at a certain point in your life it comes through the airwaves and you're feeling less than in with the cool kids can you feel out or alone and he comes in and goes drinks are the ones that you're gonNA find your way into your tribe event Kelly and save your life you know kind of your emotional life in a way but he was a man who created characters right right and a shape shifter or like the prestige he was a magician or like or the illusionist I'm sorry no no no.

But so I call up the desk and make sure that I can get people to actually film you guys have more wonderful conversation so and this is all by the way happening on a Jewish holiday which should just throw another wrench into the whole city and so we have to make sure that we've got people to to roll camera that I have to find a location thankfully I was able to also call in some some people that are in our orbit to to find a good location and I think we've found a pretty good one for this it sort of is reminiscent of the film a little bit of kind of got that expense is brick there's a bit of a fire escape in the background it's sort of noir ask like motherless Brooklyn thankfully it worked out and and and then I've got to obviously watch the film get everything about Edward to you so you can adequately prepare for this interview as well so it all came together really quickly early but I think in the end it was worth it I walked into the apartment basically is what it was we're we're doing it downtown in New York where are we dislike persons apart menu like don't worry about it just sit down and I did I did that but he was so basically Maggie was in Miami that day doing impress and his great credit who was like I will when I fly home I will touchdown and I will come and do that Hopton a car came right to our have you sat down with you and you guys had a great chat for like ninety minutes a record breaking the record Leith yes go back like to do breath on all of them but I'm pretty sure just listening to it it was one of the longest relieve Kevin Hart was the premise over an hour this was definitely over an hour as well yeah kind of you guys were just sitting in his living room chat sitting in somebody somebody was somewhere in so someone's living room but he he was you know it's funny these people come in with reputation sometimes and that you know he's he's very serious about acting obviously in filmmaking I wanNA talk about a lot of other stuff but when you sit with someone for ninety minutes and it's let's be honest the end of both of our days we were just like ready to kick back and chat I found him to be like super open and honest and willing to talk about whatever I completely agree and he talked about some things that I hadn't heard really from him he talked about his mom and sort of a tough time of that right happening right as a primal fear was coming out so I thought that was really neat to hear from him I also like the hear him talk about some of the other efforts that he's doing his environmental work some of his betterment of the world work and the notion that he wants is to do something with his life rather than just being artists and not to diminish the the value in the lasting impact of an artist but he wants to really make a make the world and I thought that was a really cool there's an amazing I thought moment of telling by where he served said you want to answer the what did you do during the war GRANDPA questions it's like I dressed up and play make he did say Maggie like the reason to be famous the reason to be a celebrity if you want to be that word to use it for something else I love that oh and by the way he started a bunch of companies crowd rise platform charitable platform and I didn't realize Hannah until I was reading your research that he was way way early in an Uber.

"The NSA through the FBI and this being replicated again and again and again throughout the country and across the world. It's not everywhere but it's closed just everywhere as we can get and this means. It's basically every communication that can be intercepted. that can be stored award can be processed at can be decrypted. We can search and we can read. You Sat at one of these terminals and had access to this. Can you describe looking at the material of a professor in Indonesia right yes so this is an academic He is just some kind of engineer. I believe he's applying for either a position or a period of study at a university in Iran and the US government for whatever reason has an interest in this particular university. We don't spy on every university but we spy on interestingly a lot of them which would surprise people but is. Iran so people go okay. You know maybe there's some intelligence value. Maybe this guy's a terrorist and what struck me here. Was that normally when we do a deep dive and we look into someone it's because they're up to no good it's because they're associated with terrorism. this gentleman affect was not he's applying to university but he's caught up in the dragnet and so they have his university admissions application they have pictures of his passport and then. I see something unusual something that I normally see. I see a video file now. Now we can intercept video files just like we do with everything else but this one to me indicated that it was produced because we had hacked his machine we had turned his Webcam on while he was at the machine and we do this. Sometimes to to confirm particularly infrastructure analysts who at this anonymous honest machine is actually using it to fund. He's on his laptop right. Yes he's he's on his laptop and we're we're looking at the man behind the device in his lap his little boy a toddler who's just playing on the keyboard and the father smiling and Lou boy looks at the Webcam. It's it's just a glimpse but to me it seems as though he's looking at me in it reminds me of my childhood of learning about technology with with my own father and I realized this man has done nothing wrong. He's just trying to get a job. He's just trying to study. He's just trying to get through life like all of us are and yet. He's caught up. His children are caught up. We we are all caught up by a system that we were not allowed to know existed but we were not allowed to vote whether this was proper or improper and courts were not allowed to assess open courts real courts whether it was proper and constitution Where do we go from there.

"Air's Dave Davies recorded with Edward Snowden a former. It systems manager who worked under contract for the national security the agency in two thousand thirteen he gave three journalists access to thousands of classified documents describing US intelligence agencies surveillance of American can citizens snowden spoke today through an Internet connection from his apartment in Moscow a year a guy who believed end the US intelligence services. You are the son of two career government servants. When you discover this broad surveillance what what impact does it have on emotionally. It was a severe relation because think about it and you know people look let me now and they think I'm this crazy. I am this extremist whatever some people have a misconception that guy he set out to burn down the NSA but that's not what this this was about in many ways twenty thirteen wasn't about surveillance at all what it was that was a violation of the constitution what was about democracy and government. I had signed lined up to help my country and my very first day entering into duty for the CIA. I was required to pledge an oath of service now. A lot of people confused. I think there's an oath of secrecy but this is important understand. There's a secrecy agreement. This is a civil agreement with the government. A nondisclosure agreement uncalled standard form three twelve very exciting that says you won't talk to journalists. You won't write books. I have done but a the when you give this of service. It's something very different. It's a pledge of allegiance not to the agency not to a government not the president but to support support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic and so when I realized we have been violating in secret the fourth amendment of the Constitution for the better part of a decade and the rate of violations increasing the scope of the violations increasing with every day we are committing Finland. He's in the United States at under a direct mandate from the White House billions of times a day honestly I fell into depression and this leads to a period where I resigned from what would be considered direct mission related related work out in Japan and the foreign field as we call it and I returned to a purely corporate position for Dell as a as a sales official don't let CIA headquarters before you actually go through the revelations of this material you described going to Fort Meade the NSA's essays headquarters and you see analysts using a tool that allows them to exploit the fruits of all this mass surveillance. It's a tool called X. Key Key score. Would it allow these guys to do okay so you to do so when you think about all of these intelligence programs you've heard of right. They've got your email. I got your Internet communications. They've got your phone calls but for everybody everywhere. Obviously this isn't just a straight stream. People are reading. Is it comes in because it would take more hours in the day. Hey thank you know any government has people go through so what they actually do is they just dump this into gigantic data centers like they've built in. BLUFF DALE UTAH and other smaller couvert ones around the world so they don't have to move data around so they construct what's called a distributed query system you can think of this like Google for spies and what it does anywhere in the world that we've collected information every were in. Sep Intercepting Communications. Now we have have our own little search engine. It's Google box that little prompt that you can access from your desk wherever you are just an NSA NSA internal website and you can type in anybody's phone number anybody's email address any computers Internet address and the anywhere on the Internet one of our sensors collected a communication it will look through instantly everything that it has and it will send just the results back to that employee so you can spy on anyone in the world from anywhere in the world as long as you have access to this network work in this tool so if you had the clearance you pick a name you get. Their phone calls their web searches. What so I'm working with the Internet side of it we have people who work with telephony data which is largely phone calls and S.'s but your Internet data eight is everything everything largely that transit the global communication network if you send it over satellite hop we have what are called foreign set foreign satellite sites sites all over the world that are just listening to the sky. If you're sending it to a cell phone tower well we hack those all over the world to the best of our ability. If you send.

"Ideas and and encouraging meaningful conversation to privacy advocates our guest Edward Snowden is a hero a whistle blower who exposed abuses by government intelligence intelligence agencies to others. He's a traitor who exposed national security secrets. SNOWDEN WASN'T IT systems expert working under contract for the the National Security Agency in twenty thirteen when he provided three journalists with thousands of top secret documents about US intelligence agencies surveillance of American citizens the revelations made snowden a wanted man accused of violating the espionage act they also led to changes in the laws and standards entered governing US intelligence agencies and the practices of US technology companies which now encrypt much of their web traffic for security snowden has lived live for the past six years in Russia out of reach of American law. He's written a new memoir about his life and experiences in the intelligence community. It's called Permanent Senate record. SNOWDEN spoke to fresh air's. Dave Davies via an Internet connection from snowden apartment in Moscow will Edward Snowden. Welcome to fresh air. I want to begin with the suspicion that some have that you are. A tool of the Russian government. Were collaborating with Russia. I I know that you ended up in Russia stranded at the airport because you had released these documents to journalists in Hong Kong and had booked a flight flight to Kito but after the first leg in Moscow your passport was invalidated by the US State Department so he got stuck in Moscow. You met a Russian intelligence is operatives. You believe at the airport that day in two thousand thirteen. What was the conversation like you have to remember that I worked for the Central Intelligence Agency? I'm very skeptical because of every intelligence service at this point in my life. I've just worked with journalists to reveal mass surveillance up. Now I know again having been trained ended the CIA through customs are what an interdiction at passport control looks like very much what to expect if anybody is up to no good and so the main thing is to survive getting through Russia on route then to Cuba Venezuela and onto Ecuador you have to travel through non on extradition countries build the kind of Airbridge to get one destination to the other from Hong Kong because every direct flight from Hong Kong I'm to Ecuador goes over. US airspace right so they can bring you down over California which is a very problematic thing to be vulnerable to for a person in my position so what I wasn't expecting was that the United States government itself as you said would cancel my passport so I'm stopped at at passport control and there's this you know the standard passport officer and when I go through the line. He takes a little bit too long. He picks phony makes call and I realize it's longer than everybody else and suddenly he looks at me. Just says did his problem with passport. Come with and I'm lead very quickly into this business lounge. which this very much not standard normally you'd be taken off to the security area and go in and it's a room full of Russian? Guys in business suits an unmistakably. There's the old guy he's in charge and he begins to Mak- what the CIA would call cold pitch now. This is where you have no history but they try to just say do you. You want to cooperate with us now. This is a very unusual situation being foreign intelligence officer because these kind of pitches requests requests for cooperation or almost always made clandestinely. They're made in private where they can be denied in. The first thing I'm thinking about because every alarm bell in my head is ringing is are they recording this are they using this to try to blackmail meet coerce me so immediately. I go look I worked for the CIA okay. I know what this is. I know what this how this is supposed to go. This is not going to be that kind of conversation. I'm not going to cooperate. I don't have any documentation with me and this is something that publicly is not very well understood but I destroyed my access to the archive. I had no material with me before before I left Hong Kong because I knew I was going to go have to go through this complex multi jurisdictional route and so this was the moment where they tried and he was he. He was basically saying look. Is there anything you can do. Is there any small piece of information anything you share because life is going to be very difficult record for person in your situation. If you don't have friends no thanks great but I'm not interested. I'll be fine on my own and then they get up and they say I hope you won't regret your decision. A little bit of a sinister moment and then they walk out so you declined there the the Russian intelligence request to cooperate then you got stuck in the airport for forty days because you didn't have a passport sport. They eventually grant temporary asylum right. That's correct and I actually just to to drill in there a little bit. you've said something very important which was that. I was trapped apt airport for forty days again for those people who might be a little bit skeptical of me if I had cooperated with the Russian government right. If you think I'm a Russian spy. I would have been in that airport for five minutes before they drove me out in a limo you know to the palace we're reliving the rest of my days before they throw the parade aid where they call me a hero of Russia instead. I was trapped in this airport for forty days. Where instead of saying you know Russia. Please let me in I applied for some in twenty seven different countries around the world places like Germany France Norway that I thought the US government and the American public would be much more comfortable with me being there and yet we saw something extraordinary happened. Just just one thing which is that the. US Government worked quite hard to make sure I didn't leave Russia to the point that they actually grounded the presidential aircraft of the President of Bolivia which is like grounding Air Force One. It's something that's really unprecedented. Diplomatic Mattock history and it's very much an open question today. Why did the US government worked so hard to keep me in Russia. We don't have a clear answer. We never have have that until more people in the Obama administration start writing memoirs but it's either they panicked when they realized this would be an evergreen political attack where they could just use guilt oh by association people's suspicion of the Russian government to try to taint me by proxy you say in the book that you applied for asylum to believe twenty seven countries was Russia one of them at the very end yes. There's a sort of a circumstantial case of suspicion right. I mean sense. This happened in two thousand thirteen. We've seen you know the Russian interference in the US election. It's collaboration according to the Muller report with wikileaks and getting stolen emails to affect the election and I think there's just a general belief that in this authoritarian state Edward snowden wouldn't be able to live for six years unless he were useful all to the Russian government. What's the general answer to that. I think this is for a lot of people who have sort of a a Hollywood understanding of how international affairs and intelligence it's works but the reality is even the case of as you said electoral interference in the case of wikileaks the Muller report the United States government itself never alleges that for example wikileaks even knew that they were talking to Russian intelligence wikileaks entire system is designed so they don't know who submitting documents and even even granting that they came from Russian intelligence that that was in fact the case every newspaper in the world thought were newsworthy stories of the New York Times The Washington Post. Everybody was reporting on this and when you look beyond the sort of the standard examples that we look at in case of electoral interference and we look look toward my case there is that question if he's not cooperating with the Russian government. Why would he be allowed to stay and I think the answer answer. Here's actually quite obvious. Russia doesn't need to do anything or rather the Russian government doesn't need to do anything to look good in this circumstance dance it shows that they have an independent foreign policy to their public because I applied to all these other countries in Europe or silent and all of their governments unfortunately could be threatened to revoke their expressions of support and this happened. This is a long well reported campaign where every time a country started into lean towards letting me in it would be either the secretary of state or the vice president of the United States that would call their foreign ministry and say look if you let this guy and we're going to retaliate and Russians very much consider themselves to be a European country so if the rest of Europe is afraid to do something and Russia is not afraid to do something that that makes Russians feel good and remember we did this in verse so Russia and the Soviet Union for the last fifty years so of course if we have an example or an instance where the whole world sees basically the United States government is not living up to its values. The Russian government is going to be very eager just underline that that's all they need do receive any financial support from the Russian government. No no this is. I'm one of the things that again is a common misconception. People sort of think about my life. They think I'm living in a bunker. There's Russian guards you. You know the the Russian government and I have any contact whatsoever. They're paying me now. I have my own apartment. I have my own income. I live a fully independent life. I have never and will never accept money your housing or any other assistance from the Russian government you didn't exactly have a typical adolescence you ended up spending nights on the computer school not of great interest to you you tell the story of looking being at the website of the Los Alamos National Laboratory into the did all this nuclear research and discovering that anybody with little understanding of Computers Directory Systems uh-huh could get internal memos. You looked at confidential memos that were just available. You call the general number the lab and left a message and said this is a problem you. You've actually got a call back. Tell us about that so my mother gets a little bit of a rude awakening because she's making dinner and I'm sitting in the living room on this computer and she picks up the phone says Yes yes he's here and she turns and looks at me and as I see her hearing the other side of the call all that I can't hear her face just gets Pale and she looks at me her eyes grow wide and she covers the receiver and she says like shoot tell and when I get up out of my chair and pick up the phone and this this man says I'm from Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory these are the sweetest words anyone have told me in the moment because I'm like. Oh thank God because I had left that message because I had called because I hadn't really done anything wrong. I had simply been curious as a boy scout. I called this facility and said Hey. There's something broken on your website. You should do something about that and my mother did not punish me for this in fact she was very proud of the fact that I told them they had a weakness in their website and Los Alamos for all things once once they realized I was a child. I think they'd been expecting someone older. They said when I turned eighteen I should give them a call. You wanted to use your skills. Your skills sales were in the area of computers and you'll get your way into the intelligence..
