"This lovely world, these precious days, I have tried for a long time to figure out how EV white did what he did. How he told the truth and made it bearable. And I think that you with your beautiful book about love won't be surprised to learn that the only answer I could come up with was love. E.B. White loved the world. And in loving the world, he told the truth about it, it's sorrow. It's heartbreak. It's devastating beauty. He trusted his readers enough to tell them the truth. And with that truth came comfort and a feeling that we are not alone. I think our job is to trust our readers. I think our job is to see and to let ourselves be seen. I think our job is to love the world. Love take that just about killed me. It's quite amazing. That line in the middle, that's the question for you and for me and for all of us trying to do this sacred task of telling stories for the young, how do we tell the truth and make that truth bearable? It's such an overwhelming thing that you think, gosh. Yeah, I mean, it is a sacred task. It really is. And I feel so fortunate to get to do it and I realized what a.

"Children, particularly my daughter who I'm probably going to quote. She's my at home, Kate dicamillo expert. And I almost thought that she should do this interview. So I read all the books kind of with her or watched them be part of her life, especially as she left after she left the books that you wrote when she was at different stages in her life. And then so I kept thinking, as I was reading you again and thinking about this, of a conversation I had early, early and years of the show with a great child psychiatrist, Robert Kohl's. Did you ever read him throughout the spiritual lives of children? But he also wrote about the political lives of children in the moral lives of children, and he actually started his career as a child psychiatrist. Watching ruby bridges. Walk into that schoolhouse every day, month after month being heckled, and yelled at by adults. And being alone in that school. So he was attentive and so articulate about the fact that children know everything about how hard the world is. And there's this impulse we have certainly as parents to shield them and that they know everything, right? They see that people die. They see that people are bad to each other. They know that their parents are fighting, right? They know that their father isn't coming to Florida and that is more complicated than he'll be there soon. And I feel like it's a very long winded way of getting to the fact that it becomes very clear to me that I think this is part of why your books have landed with so many generations of children that you honor this clear eyed truth about children in a very loving and sophisticated way in the books you write. I have to say that I don't know what I'm doing because so much of what I do is instinctual and I think it's the instinct comes from the 8 year old and me that is just kind of like right at the surface for some reason and I it's that the hope and fear of that kid that helps guide me through the stories and then also the stories always and you've heard me say this before. They are a way to access something much smarter than I am and wiser than I am and that 8 year old and me walks with me as we've find that smarter, better place. You know, I was so I was really, really small as a kid and small for my age and then I looked really like and substantial like a wind a strong wind would blow me away. And I was always being condescended to by adults, but yet I was really a sarcastic kid and a kid with a big vocabulary and I always wanted to feel seen. And that's what I loved about going into classrooms and talking to kids. I just remember what it was like to feel invisible to feel like you weren't or that you had to protect the adults by pretending that you believed the lies that they were telling you. And so it's just one even in the smallest interaction with a kid Christa. You can let them know that you absolutely see them there and with all their intelligence and all their history and all and it was electric sometimes to do that because kids don't always get it, you know? And it's funny because a lot of times like when despero came out, I would get asked again and again, why do you think mice figure so prominently in children's literature? And I always wanted to say, are you kidding? It's because that's how we treat kids, you know? It's just kind of like you're in the way, you're small. You're powerless and it feels very familiar to a kid, you know? Yeah, so that's the tale of despero. And now more recently, there's the generation of kids who've been for home flora and Ulysses is what they know of deep mellow. And florin, Ulysses is a graphic novel, right? It has graphic novel elements. Yeah. But I'd just like to come back to this point about, I mean, when you just were describing yourself as an 8 year old, I'm kind of flora is this very articulate well spoken smart, natural born cynic. Self proclaimed. But she constantly refers to her favorite book. Which is called terrible things can happen to you. Exclamation point, which is not the book any of us would give our children, but it's probably the one that they would understand. I'm sorry for laughing at my own joke when it's just so funny. It's so perfect. Yeah. Yeah. But you know, wait, I had something to say back there about flora and Ulysses and a natural born Senate. Can you take your time? Well, I want to get to and you can help me with pronunciation. Rilke, am I saying that right? You're the expert. You have got Reiner Maria rilke in flora and Ulysses. Yes. Yes. Yes. And more to the point, I have his book of hours here, the Anita barrows and Johanna Macy one. And I brought it with me because you were talking about the comfort that can be found in what can save you reading, but also this I come back to this quote so much. This is in the introduction. Real could never lost his conviction in the utter reality of the world. Or in our human capacity to redeem it through that act of transforming attention. Which is naming. Or love. And that's being seen. And that's, and when you talk about the magic and the books, the magic is just looking and wondering, like, you know, who knows what's inside that squirrel. You know, that squirrel could write poetry. And it's like, that's what we let go of one when we're adults,.

"And she was sitting in my seat in our recording studio in Minneapolis. Hello. That was the most uncertain hello I've ever heard in my life. Okay. Hello Kate. Hello. Hello, Krista. Thank you for the great gift of talking with me. I'm so I've been looking forward to it. So, you know, I think one thing that that feels like a challenge, but a challenge I'm very happy to walk into is I haven't interviewed many writers of fiction across the years. It's tricky because I really want to talk to you as this person who has brought all these characters and stories and worlds too many others, but that somebody could enter this conversation that we're going to have without having read any of it and not feel like they're missing something because I haven't read anything. Does that make sense? Yeah, and I can see what a challenge it is. You're right. You know, just to start, it occurred to me as I actually learned more about your life story. If this were a story about you that you Camilla wrote, it would begin with a sickly child named Kate. Yeah, yeah. I'm already, I'm still stuck back on there on if this was a story that I wrote, which is it's kind of got a like, it's got a rabbit hole quality to it. If I fall into that kind of thinking, but okay, I'm with you. So yes, a sickly child, well it sounds like you just, I mean, someplace you said or wrote, my body happily played host to all of the usual childhood melodies, mumps and measles, chickenpox, ear infections, plus a few exotic extras, inexplicable skin diseases, chronic pink eye, and then you had recurring pneumonia every winter for the first 5 years of your life. Right, right. I mean, it just makes me so pathetic. And I think so much when you say all of that, I think, I mean, I feel it. And I also, I think, how did that kid survive? And then I know exactly what the answer is, you know? She laughed, and she read. And she made friends. Those have been the saving graces. Yeah. And you know, it also all of those things turned out to be peculiar gifts in a way. Because the pneumonia, it got us to Florida and away from my father. Which of the time, as a kid, I didn't perceive as a gift. Instead, I was just like, where is he? And is he going to come back? And also it was good because I came from Philadelphia to Florida. And I felt like Alice in Wonderland that I just, it's like there were weeky watchi where they're underwater mermaids. There was gatorland where you walked through cement jaw of an alligator and watched the gator jumper roo. Right. And it was the south people told stories and I just, I was raised by that small town, basically, you know? I remember sitting on the back steps of Ida bell Collins house. She was the next door neighbor, and she was like, now, when is your wins your father going to get here? And I said soon, he's going to get here soon. And I remember thinking, I know that's not true. But you live for the adults kind of. Right. Kate, there's a lot of magic in your books. And I'm sorry to speak about it. It's not just magic, right? It's magic and it's a real clear eyed realism. About how complicated. And often difficult and often impossible and devastating. Life can be. But there is a lot of magic and yet what also just jumps out at me about you and kind of the body of your work and kind of what you what you've brought into the world is also this every day magic that is available to every single person, which is the magic of reading. And that you said it a minute ago, but just to come back to that, that that's what it was for you. Like you were a kid who wanted wanted to read. But you had trouble with it at first. And you had trouble with what was it, the way they were trying to teach it with phonics? Yeah. And I compute in your brain. It did not compute, and it was, it was almost terrifying to me because I wanted I knew that I wanted to read so much. I knew that I needed what was there. And here I was, and this didn't make sense. And my mother, who was a wonderful, complicated person, I came home from this is first grade is when we learn to read then. And I was hysterical. I had said I don't understand what they're talking about. It doesn't make any sense to me. And she said something like for the love of Pete calm down. Which was totally her. And then she gave me such a huge gift in how she and this is the thing that I realized after the fact. She said a couple things to me. She said, one, she said you're smart. Well, we'll just figure a way to work around it. You're good at memorizing. We'll just memorize. And so there's some explicit messages there. You're smart. She thinks I'm smart. I'm good at memorizing, but there's an implicit one too, which is there's always a way around it. And that was huge. And so she made me flashcards. And every day I would come home from school and she would just hold up a word, and I would, and she would tell me what it was, and I would memorize it. And that's how I learned to read. And it was such an act of seeing on her part. She saw who I was. And she knew what I needed. And I remember my best friend and kindergarten first grade was Alice in Lance and Alison was one of those kids who spontaneously read. And it was so maddening to me. Because I remember when it all came together for me and it was a little bare, the illustrated by Maurice said. And I look at those pictures and it just knocks me off my chair, but I remember you really feel like you're going to come out of your body and lift off, you know, it is like you're in. And it is, I don't know if these words made it to you, but it's just like you walk through a golden door into a room of light, you know? Yeah, well, you actually, just what you just said is captured, actually, and the Beatrice prophecy, which I think is your latest book when we're now speaking. And I think this is bad trees. Tell me, is this Beatrice saying this instructing each letter has a shape and each letter has a sound and you put these shapes and sounds together and they become words. Do you understand? I, he said to her, his heart was beating fast. He did not know. He had not understood how much he wanted it. To know the secret of letters and sounds and words, but his heart pounding against his rib cage was telling him. He watched the letters appear one by one beneath her hand, and he felt as if each letter were a door, pushed open inside of him. A door that led to a lighted room. Yeah. I say, I'm nodding my head as you read not because.

"Wide open with yearning and possibility, understanding exactly how trouble the adults around you are, even if they think they are hiding it from you, almost unbearably alert to the world's wonders and its dangers all at once. And that's the reason you should listen to this conversation with Kate dicamillo, even if you've never heard of her bounty of books. They include the tale of despereaux, the magician's elephant, the miraculous journey of Edward tulane, flora, and Ulysses. They've been turned into operas and movies, but they are at heart, love letters to reading. In the world of teachers and parents and young former children who've grown up reading her books. Kate dicamillo has near cult status. I read her books with my children. Then in the early pandemic months, feeling unmoored, I was inspired to crack them open to read by myself. In response to a piece in The New York Times, by the wonderful writer of adult novels and patch it. She wrote of making her way through Kate dicamillo's Opus as one of the most satisfying literary adventures of her life, and also incredibly calming. This beautiful world had been available to me all along she confessed, but I had never bothered to pick up the keys to the kingdom. With honesty and wisdom, laughter and tears, Kate dicamillo makes bearable the mysterious fact that hope and heartbreak live so close side by side in real life. This is her gift to her readers.

Larger cities tend to be doing better at vaccinations because of resources messaging and personal politics and ideals that lean towards trusting science. More rural areas are suffering because of resources message. Personal politics and ideals and a myriad of reasons that don't include trusting science. In the CDC's latest analysis, there are 482 counties across the country where less than 25% of the population is vaccinated. Here in Washington, Garfield County is 26% vaccinated Fairy County 42% vaccinated in spite of a super spreader outbreak two months ago that gave more than 10% of the town of Republic, Covid 19. Experts warn. If these numbers don't improve dramatically by the time the country fully reopens its these smaller holdout areas that could not only fuel another rise in cases, but also give birth to new mutations of the virus.

"You still can't believe is a real thing. In fact, even everybody talked. We just talked to Kimberly Marten about it. And even she said, she's like every guy I talked to. There's no way he makes the team but he shot you said you wouldn't embarrass him. You're not gonna embarrass him. You're not gonna do this to embarrass him. People really want to see Tim Tebow fail, huh? It's not about fail. It's just one of those. Why, you know, I think that's really what the it's why. I don't think you know. Honestly, I mean, you know, I get a headache even continue to talk about Eight years. J. Never mind the 68 years. Whether he could play. I wouldn't give a damn if he was headed to the Hall of Fame. When you eight years is eight years man, But the last time he took a meaningful snap in the game was eight years ago. I hear it's just even the game's different yesterday you ate It's just the conversation. Just it turns so hard towards 10 table yesterday, and I found myself having conversations with random friends about what he was kneeling during the national anthem. He was praying and that's it. I'm like, Damn, it just looks like Sister. Oh, no, just winning so many different Tim Tebow directions where I was like Wow again. He could be going to the Hall of Fame. It's eight years, man. It could be. He could have been the greatest college quarterback turned into the pros and with Hall of Fame back eight years off is a long time didn't get signed. No, I mean like it's just like it's speculation. Now it's one of speculation led to anger about what do you doing? Didn't get signed, But that's why again. We know he's polarizing. Let's listen to first. As we've heard, you know, Kimberly Marten talk about it How people she's talked to scouts. And what not saying A. You never have to put that stuff out there. Why even put it out there? We know why. But also not expecting that he's even going to play that. Maybe he'll just retire before training camp. Listen to Jeff Darlington, Another one of our ESPN NFL reporters is from get up yesterday, his reaction to what's going over his reaction what he's hearing about the reaction within the Jaguars organization about the potential of signing Tim Tebow. There's a serious disagreement within the building about the idea of urban Meyer Scientific Tebow. There are coaches on that staff who don't want to see it happened and you know there are also in the same breath. Those who are saying to boogers points out that big of a deal. Look, he's probably not going to be on the roster week one. It is just also important to remember beyond the emotional side of this beyond the wonders of why Is just the reality that it's really not Practical. It's not likely to work and it doesn't necessarily Urban Meyer, I think would say, Well, hey, I'm going to add anybody to my team who has the potential to better this organization to which you could look at this and say, Well, how is this going to better the organization? There's just really not very much upside at all. To be quite honest, now is certainly the conversations. What's going on inside Keyshawn J. Wells have been presented by Progressive insurance. August Join us on the Goodyear Hotline. Alan Hahn in presuming you wanna hear from Urban Meyer himself because that's usually the best thing to do is okay. Maybe have the coach explain it, So he was on the Chris Collinsworth podcast, and he discussed the latest on the potential of signing Tim Tebow. We have not signed Tim, There's a thought going around, you know, he He was in the best shape of his life. Asked to see if he could work out a couple of our coaches, I wasn't even there. And they came back to me and said, Wow, this guy's in the incredible shape and I said that I went another time and watched him try him out. And they said, Go work on these things. He comes back later. Try him out again. I'm not there They come in and I said, Wow. This guy's ball skills. He's a great athlete. He looks like he's 18 years old 20 whatever he is 33 And I said, Guys, you don't understand how this guy is. No. He's the most competitive maniac. You ever gonna talk to. And let's give it a shot. And I have not decided if we're gonna do that, or not yet, him getting close. I gotta make a decision or pretty soon. So to be clear he wasn't there. He was there not the first time and not the second time. But the middle time is not the third, Not the first to third time the second time and they kept coming back saying, Wow, So the way it goes, is We had a conversation, man, and they said Hey, wants to work in mind you say Okay, I got some other stuff to go. Do you go work him out? I kind of know what he looks like Already. I know Tim. He's in shape. I'm not worried about that. Just let me know. You say? Yeah, He's looks pretty cool. He says I You know, I ain't got much to do. Let me go Stop by and stick my head and say hi to Tim and his wife and family and everything. I sit there watching workout. I do those things. Then I go about my business say, you know Interesting. Let me know what his ball skills look like, cause I got some other stuff to do. They come back. They say Wow, This guy can really do some stuff. He you know that tape that we saw nine years ago when him trying to run that that out the Jets. Don't even worry about that. He's got better and quicker and faster in and out of his brakes. Okay, let me let me playing the outfield is really helped him received. Let me let me We ponder on this for a little bit. Utilities are off the charts. Yeah, let me let me just say team. Dude, it looks like an 18. But at the same time, I'm gonna take the post of everybody's reaction to the fact that we made Explore signing him and let me see. The fall out before I signed him, so I now could tell you I haven't thought about it. But I'm gonna give it some thought over the next week because I want to take the temperature of the way. People are going to proceed this because I screwed up. With the strength and conditioning coach. So let me let me just see the way this thing goes. And I think that's where urban Meyer is. After listening to him yesterday, a real interesting take. All right. I got spot on. That's a direct shape. That was where I was going to go with the whole thing. It Z. It's funny how easily I feel like we get duped in the media, sometimes with something that shiny and polarizing like that like that top every show talked about that yesterday. Every show Sports radio news CNN like what? Wait, wait. It's on boxes on CNN. What's going Wow. Like Tim Tebow was like that. So I mean, look great opportunity for urban to see what bringing Tim Tebow to your team can do for your team. From the notoriety perspective, they get rid of you when you turn 30 man. They don't sign. So we said yesterday. Okay? This is a marketing stunt. No. I'm not selling off is a start up, but that's why I turned into It was turning into I honestly believe that urban Meyer wants to sign him honestly believe that, but Again the temperature What is that temperature? Because if I Decided one day that I'm going to run a team before I get really old. I'm hiring everybody I know. Hey, J. Well, I know you've never done this before, but I want you to come work here, Alan. I know you've never done this before. I need.

"Right. You want me to blow the whistle? Throw the flag? I can, but yeah, but you're right, too. I mean, you've got some valid concerns there. So how do we What are some ways we can look at how we get to these other issues? The furnace in the car. Because we're taking you dangerously low on cash. And so if we're going to do this for this child now and not wait six months, which probably wouldn't be the end of the world, if you did I'm not. And I'm not an expert on dentistry, but I suspect they would probably still be able to straighten their teeth if you wait six months. And which might be a plan and during that, six months pile up some more cash toe where it gives all of you some more comfort. That's probably what the Ramseys would have done. But if you don't do that, then what we do have to do is we have to put the house on the whole home on beans and rice direction, beans as if you had a bunch of credit card debt or something. And you were being gazelle Intense because You've got some known things coming at you. So your analysis of that is correct. I mean, that furnace is going to go out in that car is going to go. There's not any question in your mind or my mind. I just don't know when it's not a matter of. If it's just win. Is it six months or is it 18 months? But it's not. It's not eight years. No, I never even thought that wouldn't I mean it Sounds silly. I never thought that waiting six money. He's 11.5 of girl was permanent teeth. I've never thought about waiting six months. I'm sure the doctor is gonna tell you that I'm a quack because when it comes to the industry, I am I have no qualifications whatsoever. Except I'm a dad that about a couple of sets of braces over the years. I did God acted to the same exact analysis and Don't they make it almost sounds like you're not borrowing money. It's more like you're renting these braces. But they'll give you a discount for paying the rental upfront. Like they're gonna re Wrentham after you get him back, But anyway, I don't know, but it's to me. I looked at it with our two that had braces is dead. And I just pre paid it like your wife is suggesting. But I think that means that we have to look at theirs to re valid things that need to occur here. Furnace car braces and we've got to create all of them like they're very important because they are in John, I need you didn't ask for this, but I've got to speak it out there. No. The tension I feel when I want to buy something when I have to buy something, and then my wife says, Hey, Hank, need shoes. And the temptation is to let him know. I'm buying you these shoes at a cost of right, So the temptation is going to take that boy. You better appreciate the crisis. I work. I'm driving this truck was And what I'm gonna ask you to do is Don't put that in the heart and soul of your 11 year old that he's a burden to his family. That dad can't drive to work or we can't have here and you have to say that. And you said that we didn't know what is it, making?

A. She had planned to go to D. C to celebrate. Kamila Harris is the first female and first black vice president but canceled her trip. After the violence on January 6, she says, watching with her parents, though, was justice special. My mom who at one point in her life grew up on a Sharecropping Farm and Beaumont, Texas. So to be able to have this experience with them and and look at how far we have come as a people again as African Americans, but Not just that, just as Americans as a whole, and it's been in the awesome morning. Well, she and vice president here is shared the same black sorority now for Kappa Alfa. She watched alongside her sorority sisters on Zoom. Joe Biden, already filling in the details of his $1.9 trillion pandemic relief plan. One proposal it includes is expanding family leave and sick aid that could benefit hundreds of thousands of state employees here in California. KCRW's Gerald SATs been reports Those workers saw that aid cut off in December. Biden's proposal would give employees 14 weeks of paid sick and family leave, compared to the two weeks included in the initial covert relief bill approved by Congress last spring. It would provide insurance to workers in case they come down with Corona virus or have to take care of his sick family member or a child studying at home who would otherwise be alone rather than a maximum of $1000 per week. It would provide benefits of up to $1400 per week for those earning less than $73,000 a year. In December, Congress offered to extend the initial emergency family leave program through March of this year. Offering tax credits to cover costs. Some private employers agreed. But California didn't commit. Biden's proposal would make it mandatory. CHP and some other state agencies kept employees out of the expanded family leave last year. This time it appears they would not be able to do that binds proposal, of course, must be approved by Congress. California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein is drawing ire from some Democrats.

"Grew up in a small town that sits at the foothills of the Appellation Mountains. Anniston, Alabama. Population in the 19 sixties was around 35,000 people. Much of the town worked at the cotton Mill, the Fort McClellan army base or the month Santo chemical plant. The town stink like rotten eggs, and there was so much cotton in the air. You just couldn't get away from it. It was a porn, uneducated town where girls got married at the age of 14. They were using pregnant by 15. My mama had five kids by the age of 22. And six of her eight husbands came from the Fort McClellan army base. Now my siblings and I grew up in a housing project and at school, we stood at the end of the lunch line. We had to eat last because we were the welfare kids. Now Albert was Mama's first husband and the father of my three older siblings. When I was conceived, Albert was in prison for armed robbery and attempted murder. Mom always said he was my daddy. But, you know, I think she felt guilty cause she didn't really knew my father Woz. My 16th birthday. Alberto me over the phone. I ain't your daddy. Oh, man. Morris is your dad. He looked like his kids. Mr Morse is our neighbor. You know, I did kind of look like his kids. But I don't I still don't know who my father is. Always terrified of Mama's anger, especially when she drank and sometimes she drinks so much. You just pass out for hours and leave my siblings and me locked outside the apartment until late at night. In between husbands. She had my older siblings quit school to help out with the bills. By the time I was eight years old, I was cleaning houses and baby sitting, But, you know, I didn't mind. I felt safer working than being at home with mom and all those strange man coming and going all the time. When I turned 12 years old, I got my dream job working the concession at the movie theater. I got a chance to see how people outside the project's behaved and how they dressed. They were real different for me. Well, one day the tallest woman had ever seen walked in. She had on a big pink hatches. Wearing a pink dress. She was carrying a pink pocketbook and wearing white gloves. She walks up to the counter and said, I'll have a large popcorn. Ah, large RC Cola and a large Hershey bar with almonds. I thought she must be rich. Nobody orders large. So she looked at me and said, What's your name? And I say, Tricia Mitchell, she said. How old are you? And I'm thinking about she asked me all these questions. I I answered 12, she said. How tall are you, honey? I said I don't know, Ma'am, she said was standing in, said RC Cola machine. I'm gonna measure your height. She pulls out a pink measuring tape. She said. My you are tall for your age, and she opens up her back and gives me a pink card, she said. I am Oma Macy Harwell are run Miss Macy's charms go down on 10th and Noble. Have you, mama? Call me. I want to talk to you about you coming to my charm school. Well after work on clutching that pink card, I'm all excited to run home and Mom was sitting at the kitchen table, painting her fingernails red and drinking a glass of gin. Go. Look, Mama, Miss Macy wants me to come to her charm school. Mama looks at the card and said Hell, no, you ain't going down there. It's a whorehouse. She throws the car down on the Florida I'm really confused. I knew I had to do something. So when Mama wasn't looking at picked up that card now went to a neighbor's I'll call. Miss Mason told her mom won't let me come to her school. This, Macy said. Don't you worry about that, Honey, I'll call you Mama handle it. Now. Miss Mason knew a little bit about my family history because her husband was the town judge, and he had sentenced Albert to prison a couple of times. So Miss Macy told Mama could come to her school free. And how might even be in the newspaper one day and that could make Mama look real important. So my mama realized she didn't have to pay a dime and there's something in it for her. She agreed to let me go. So after work. I go to miss Maces and she teach me how to walk up and down stairs like a lady. She had some portable stairs carpeted in pink. She taught me how to sit properly in a chair and even how to exit a room. You want to know something? I could exit this room right now and never turn my back on any of y'all. Hmm? I know how to do that. It's a perk going to charm school. That's just one of the perks you get well. The most important thing this makes you taught me that was how to walk a runway. How to tell my pelvis and tuck in my stomach and keep my chin up and she encouraged me to enter every beauty contest.
