"There. How are you today. I'm excited to be here. Thank you so much for having me. I'll thank you for coming autumn so excited to talk with you. So can you tell me about your writing. Sure so i think of my rating as a bit dark a bit funny at times. I think i'm very interested in voice. So i tend to use a lot of first person though i've definitely expanded in the last couple of years to use more third person i am very interested in language in sentence level writings. So that's actually for me. One of the primary reasons i write and story is sort of secondary. So i'm interested in story and structure and all that but i love just like reading a good sentence in that so that i think translates into my rating. I really like spending some time. Crafting sentences that that maybe kind of mixed up poetry and prose. Yeah very much. So and i just finished reading her book strange shoulder and it was just so incredible. I act- i was mentioning it to her before the interview to and i can totally see the influences from like putting some poetry throughout it. So what not the idea to put poetry in the book in that way. I think i really am drawn to poetic writers like cormac mccarthy who has an epigraph in the book from him on tony morrison falconer hugest tend to have turns of phrases or ways of describing things that are just so original so i think that's. That's a huge kind of drivers. I like reading that kind of book about the kind of language based but also on their time in the book win. I just not very often. But i do kinda break.

"Wade Burlison. I'm going. Falconer Lippert will dig for the Golden Nuggets of Oklahoma history here now on Oklahoma Gold, the Burlison chapters. The first secret mission of the Civil War happened in Oklahoma. Wait. Burlison! What is this story? Well, it's it's my favorite of all the stories that I tell and I realized that in a generation when many people don't even know what happened two years ago to identify the years of the Civil War is hard for some But the time period we're talking about is 18 61 to 18 65 those of the four years of the civil war. Those are also the years that President Abraham Lincoln was the president, United States He's called the war president. Because his tenure included those four years. The war began on April the 12th 18 61 when Fort Sumpter was fired on by the Confederates in the South. What's interesting, Gwyn is Abraham Lincoln refused to call it a war when it started. He called it an insurrection. And if you're thinking, you know, January 6th of 2021. An insurrection occurred in Washington, D. C. Well, that's what Lincoln wanted to call it because that's not awards just people who are disgruntled. However, very soon it became obvious that this was going to turn into an attack of the south onto the capital of the United States. Back then, it was just called Washington. There was no D. C and Abraham Lincoln realized now get this. This is what most people don't understand. That to protect the capital. He had to get The finest officers, artillery, men and cavalrymen in the United States Army and they were a long way away. From Washington. In 18 61 April of 18 61. They were all located in what we call Oklahoma. They had been sent here. In order. To prevent the civilized Indians, the five civilized tribes from being attacked by what the army called the UN civilized Indians. The Indians. To the West. Who I'm from Enid, and our mascot is called the Enid Plane. Zeman and the Enid plane. Zeman were like Kiowa, Apache, Cheyenne. They were they were the greatest horsemen in the history of the world. But when the government forced the civilized Indians from Tennessee, North Carolina, all the states Florida to the east to Oklahoma. When those civilized Indians got here, the Choctaw you know, the Seminole, the Cherokee and and so on and took us and Chickasaw. Of course, they were being attacked. By the uncivilized horseman. And so the government sent the finest troops. To Oklahoma to protect the civilized Indians from the UN civilized Indians, and so the nations were fighting among themselves. Don't think I knew this, but it makes perfect sense. Of course it does. Well, now, now we get to the place where Washington needs these troops from Oklahoma to protect the capital. From the insurrection of the South. So they send A Undercover agent. Gentleman by the name of William Avery. He was with the first United States cavalry. He had been wounded in the Indian wars in New Mexico. And when the Civil War started label the 12, 18 61, Abraham Lincoln and the United States General in chief When field old fuss and feathers, Scott has sent a brawl. To Indian territory with a handwritten note evacuating The troops the United States troops in Oklahoma North to Fort Leavenworth and then back to Washington to protect the capital. Well. William Avery. He's the on Lee general on both sides of the Civil War that an official Biography has never been written about. He is one of the most courageous, bravest men you'll ever read about, but you can't find much material to read. He dresses as a Confederate and he makes his way by train as far West as he can go. Then he takes a stage coach South To the entrance into Indian territory. Fort Smith And then while he's in Fort Smith, he's identified as a union soldier by the Confederates who had taken over Fort Smith. And the Chase is on and in a five day chase. The Confederate troops chase Lieutenant William Avery all through Oklahoma. To Fort Arbuckle. If you don't know where Ford Arbuckle is the Arbuckle Mountains right off by 35 Davis, Oklahoma, you go seven miles west. The old Fort Arbuckle is located there. That's where April was going. That's where the troops were stationed. He almost dies three times as the Confederates chased him across Oklahoma. Finally, when he gets to Fort Arbuckle, he falls off of this horse and the commander at Fort Arbuckle had fought with a viral in New Mexico. And he recognizes him and he says Avery all is that you? My God, What are you doing here and April looks at him And he says I've been sent by the president. You need to evacuate North. Come back. The capital to protect Washington from the insurrection. Well, here's the thing, Glenn Those troops afford Arbuckle. They didn't know how to move North. They didn't know which they didn't know where to go. They came into Oklahoma into Indian territory from the gateway, Fort Smith, So they had to find someone who knew his way around northern Indian territory, and they found an Indian Named Black Beaver. And black Beaver was asked by the troops to guide them North now When we come back, I'll tell you how he got 1000, United States troops out of Indian territory to Fort Leavenworth. And the path that he took them on. You can follow it today. Highway 81 every little stop on highway 81 going north Dover Hennessy in it. There are natural springs and black Beaver knew where to stop toe. Let the horses get water to replenish canteens and he moved north and got them out successfully to Fort Leavenworth. And when we come back, I'll tell you what happened to black beaver. Because in my mind, he is one of the Heroes of the United States along with William April, and the story is worth knowing. And.

You looking forward to today show very much. So all right. Let's get started with part one from Neil Gaiman. I never really expected to find myself giving advice to people graduating from an establishment of higher education. I never graduated from any such establishment. I never even started at one I escaped from school as soon as I could when the prospect of four more years of enforced learning before I could become the right right wanted to be seemed stifling. I got out into the world. I wrote and I became a better writer the more. I wrote, and I wrote some more, and nobody seemed to mind that I was making it all up as I went too long. They just read what I wrote, and they paid me for it. Or they didn't. And often they commissioned me to write something else for them, which has left me with a healthy respect and fund nece for higher education that those that my friends and family who attended universities cured off long ago. Looking back. I've had a remarkable ride. I'm not sure I can call it a career because a career implies that I had some kind of career plan, and I never did the nearest thing. I had was a list I made when I was about fifteen of everything I wanted to do I wanted to write an adult novel children's book comic and movie record an audio book writing episode of doctor who and so on I didn't have a career. I just did the next thing on the list. So I thought I'd tell you everything I wish I'd known starting out and a few things that looking back on it. I suppose I did know and that also give you the best piece of advice I'd ever got which I completely fail to follow. First of all when you start out on a career in the arts. You have no idea what you're doing. This is great. People who know what they're doing know the rules. And they know what is possible. What is impossible? You do not. And you should not the rules on what is possible and impossible in the arts were made by people who had not tested, the bounds of the possible by going beyond them. And you can if you don't know it's impossible. It's easier to do because nobody's done it before. They haven't made up rules. Stop anyone doing that particular thing again..

"So this is a this is a system that i developed with sean falconer an amanda rabinowitz and it's called the the game bought system which wished him now it's fun it stands program yes as themes for game behavioural observation theory so what does is it tracks the frequency that each player displays one of twenty two behaviors in each episode of the show and then sean uses machine learning to determine who was behaving most like a winner so while it's based on what the eta shows us is primarily based on the personalities the players and who is displaying the behaviors that are most consistent with past winners so that's really important that is displaying is showing us behaviors of past winners so doesn't roll it all up and say you need these three qualities to win it sank if you are this type of player than you need to show these kinds of of qualities to win so for example last year it was showing that ben was playing most liked any steeply and that's why he was a front runner um so as it gets very complicated but it's very is very neat so what item visually originally envisioned for this is i was hoping that by tracking how all the character types played throughout episode after episode throughout their whole season we would then be up to look at the the character types of did really well or says the same character types that didn't do well and compare them and be able to to then say you know if this new player behaves like this and takes this kind of approach they'll do better than the than the average because this of this whole predictive system is based on the average of how every character type who's played in that character as done so if you want to be like an adam clyde you need to bring a lot more to the table if you want to breathe be natalie anderson you need to bring a lot more to the table this system can tell you precisely what you need to bring a guy which is what we're talking about today right well narrow just at the end so i'm gonna what i'm going to do is i'm going to say that i'm going to do my regular character types prediction but at the end laissez you know this is this is the ono you didn't this is what.
