Lis Wiehl Shares the Intriguing Tale of 'A Spy in Plain Sight'
"We have a really exciting guest talking about a very exciting book and subject, exciting, depressing, amazing. I don't know where to begin. You probably already know my guest. Lee's wheel, maybe you saw her over the years on Fox News or on CNN or any place just a prominent legal mind federal prosecutor on and on and on. It goes, and she has now written a book. I got to tell you, it's nothing less than shocking. It's titled a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hanssen, America's most damaging Russian spy, remember the Cold War folks. Remember when we were at war with the Soviet Union, they were a superpower in those days. And there was somebody on the inside. It just, it's one of the most amazing stories ever. A number of books have been written about it. This is being called the best of them all, a spy in plain sight Lee's wheel. Welcome to the program. Eric, it's great to be with you. Thanks so much for that kind introduction. Well, I tell you, when I read originally about Robert Hansen, it was one of these things, it's out of a movie. It's a nightmare that somebody would be this deeply embedded in our FBI working for our enemies. Today it would be, you know, working for China. But give us the background for people who don't remember the details, the timing, the years, the decades, so that we have some sense of who this monster Robert Hansen was. Yeah, and you've got it right. He really is a monster. I mean, finally, he's locked up now forever. So he's in a 24 hour or 23 hour solitary confinement and Florence Colorado in a supermarket, a super max. But started, you know, kind of an unremarkable upbringing. He was a middle class in Chicago, his father was a cop, kind of trying to tough on him. I mean, really tough on him. We'd call it child abuse now. But he grew up, became an accountant and then joined the FBI, which was really the Pinnacle for him. You know, it was just the thing that he wanted to be. He admired James Bond. He wanted to be everything, James Bond. So the enters in the early 80s into the bureau. And Eric within a year of entering the FBI, he approaches the Russians. They don't have to flip him. He approaches them. He doesn't tell them who he is, but he says he has this great Intel information for them.

The Battle of Monteverdi explained
"And what I want to do in this segment is complete my discussion of the terrace of pride and in the next segment I want to talk about the terrorists the next terrace, which is the terrace of envy. Now these are very big and bad sins and part of the part of what we learned from Dante is why they are so bad. What is it that makes pride the deadliest of the deadly sins? What is it that makes envy so destructive and so corrosive? Now, in the terrace of pride, we've met a politician named umberto, as well as an artist named Odyssey, both in a sense being purged and cleansed of the sin of pride. And now we're going to meet a third man and this guy's name is salvani. Now province I'm sylvani. Was the great Victor at the battle of. If you remember back to canto 5 of the inferno, we met this imperious character. Florentine, named farinata, and what he did was he betrayed his own city, Florence, and he made allies with Siena. And together, the ghibellines of Florence and the sienese army invaded Florence defeated the guelphs. That was the battle of Monty parity in the late 13th century.

"And you get to know the patterns of the water or the rocks. You know, it sounds a little goofy to say it, but I think there's some compelling research here showing that when people can feel connected to the natural world, it can be a great antidote actually for loneliness. Yes, I think that's a really important point to kind of keep coming back to. It's not only other people. There are lots of ways to connect and even back to what we were talking about earlier around beauty and art. I have deep connections to pieces of art, pieces of music, things. Exactly. Do feel like connection. They are valuable. So I guess the great trifecta, you know, to sort of sum it up. The great trifecta of heartbreak antidote or loneliness antidote seems to be this sort of beauty plus connection. Plus purpose. I think it's very hard to rely too much on one of those over the other. It seems to be in combination of seems to be sort of a pathway into ultimately feeling a sense of belonging, feeling like the things that you do matter. And ultimately, of course, increasing your capacity. For love, which is really what it's all about. Well, I can't think of a more beautiful place to just kind of wrap up. That was a great summary there. Beauty purpose and connection. I want to take a second and let you share a little bit about there's an audio version of your book, which I think is really exciting. One of the things that's so great about so many of these books like yours is you talk to so many interesting people. And we get you sort of giving us that in the writing. But I think in the audiobook, we can actually hear these people, right? Yeah, thanks so much for asking about that. I'm really proud of this audiobook that we made. That's very unusual. As I went around reporting the research for this book, I had my tape recorder. And I taped everyone I talked to. I also taped myself in an audio journal. I taped my Friends. I taped my therapist. And so when we made the audiobook, we decided to actually pull that tape into the book. So it's not just me reading the text. It's actually these real conversations layered in, as well as really beautiful music and sound design. And so it feels like a very immersive, I think, audio experience. And I hope people will check it out. And it sounds like a lovely companion for being heartbroken. I hope so. You know, I really wanted the book to be hopeful because I think that heartbreak is. As difficult as it is, it is a fast transformation and how lucky that we can get that. 100%. Well, Florence, thank you so much for coming back on. It is always a pleasure to talk with you. You too, Eric, thank you so much for having me. If.

"Thanks for joining us. Our guest on this episode is a repeat guest, the one you feed podcast. It's Florence Williams, a journalist, author, and podcaster. She's a contributing editor at outside magazine in a freelance writer for The New York Times, slate, mother Jones, National Geographic, and many, many others. Today, Florence and Eric discuss her new book, heartbreak, a personal and scientific journey. Hi Florence, welcome to the show. Hi, Eric. So great to be here. Thank you. Yeah, it's wonderful to have you back on. We had you on, I don't know the date. It's been years at this point. We talked about your last book, which was all about nature. Your current book is called heartbreak, a personal and scientific journey. And you're just such a great writer. It's such a well written and beautiful book. Thank you. So we're going to talk about that, but before we do, let's start like we always do with a parable. There's a grandparent who's talking with their grandchild, and they say, in life, there are two olds inside of us that are always at battle. One is a good wolf, which represents things like kindness and bravery and love. And the other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed and hatred and fear. And the grandchild stops and thinks about it for a second, looks up at their grandparent and says, well, which one wins, and the grandparent says the one you feed. So I'd like to start off by asking you what that parable means to you and your life and in the work that you do. I've thought so much through this project about the power of negative emotions. So I had never experienced heartbreak before, and when it happened, it so knocked me off my socks, changed the way my body felt changed my health, changed the way my cells were functioning. And that's what really drove me to write this book. So I had to confront why is it that uncomfortable emotions are so difficult to deal with? Why do we avoid them? And so the one you feed, you have to make a choice sort of on a daily basis. How are those negative emotions going to play you and how are you going to play them?.
Brian Flores Files Discrimination Lawsuit Against NFL
"Most interesting story of the afternoon was Brian Flores. Late last afternoon on the West Coast. It's early evening on the east coast. I'm starting to do my show prep, and I see Brian Flores, who was head coach of the Miami Dolphins for a couple of years, has just unloaded on the NFL. Alleging discrimination against black coaches. And he shot at the NFL and his complaint, and he hit it, but he really took out Bill Belichick. Because Bill Belichick thought he was texting somebody other than Brian Flores. And he was texting, I think Brian did all telling him. Hey, the fix is in. Don't worry, there's the paraphrase I don't have in front of me. Don't worry, Brian, you've got this job, you're gonna get this job. They told me you've got the job. Good for you. You're gonna do great with a giant Brian Florence was in the about to head off to interview at New York Giants land. He had to go through a charade because of the Rooney rule. The Rooney rule requires that you hire at least one African American. You interview at least one African American for every opening for GM and head coach. I think that's the Rooney rule. Now the browns have actually lived by the Rooney rule. They had Hugh Jackson as their head coach. They got the amazing Andrew Barry, who's maybe the best GM in football, both black men who are great professionals. You didn't do so well. But but you can't pretend. And I think Brian Flores, we've got to payday

"Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is what manika. This month, we're talking about women who have made important contributions to the world of health and wellness. Today we're talking about one of the first American women to make a career as a research scientist. The definition of a trailblazer, she was the first female faculty member at Johns Hopkins University. The first woman elected to the national Academy of Sciences, and the first woman to become a member of the Rockefeller institute. Let's talk about Florence Sabin. Florence Sabin was born in 1871 in central city, Colorado. Her mother died just 6 years later during childbirth, so Florence and her sister Mary were raised by extended family. Thankfully, her family believed in education for women, and with Florence and Mary went on to attend Smith college. By the time she'd reached high school, Florence's interest and ability in science was clear. In college, she developed an interest in pursuing medicine. The year that Florence graduated from Smith, Johns Hopkins University accepted its first female medical students. Florence was determined to join them, but she couldn't afford the tuition, so she spent the next few years teaching math at a high school in Denver, and zoology at Smith. Finally, in 1896, Florence matriculated at Johns Hopkins medical school. She was one of 14 women in a class of 45. In medical school, Florence was able to bond with a few of her classmates, but found the larger atmosphere distressing. Was she really cut out for this? In 1900, Florence wrote to her sister Mary, saying, I don't seem to work well under pressure. I need a calm and placid atmosphere. I never get time to do research. Her attention to detail and love of exploration earned Florence reputation for her work in the laboratory. Professor Franklin P mall took her on as a mentee. She'd found her place in medicine. Florence published her first paper while she was still a student. It was called on the anatomical relations of the nuclei of reception of the cochlear and vestibular nerves. In 1901, she won a fellowship to work alongside professor mall in the anatomy department. She also published what would quickly become a standard text for her field. An Atlas of the medulla and midbrain. Despite her clearly demonstrated skills, Johns Hopkins initially refused to hire any women. Two years later, in 1903, they reversed their decision. Florence became their first female faculty member. In 1917, Florence's mentor professor mall died. On paper, Florence seemed his natural successor for department chair. But again, she was stymied by sexism. The school named a student of hers to the role instead, despite school wide protests. In 1925, Florence moved on to the Rockefeller institute to lead the cellular immunology department. Again, she was a pioneer, becoming the first woman to become a full member of the institute. She also became the first woman elected to the national Academy of Sciences. Much of Florence's research focused on the lymphatic system, a network of tissues vessels and organs that help rid the body of toxins. Thanks to her research, we learned that the lymphatic system begins with veins in the embryo. She also specialized in tuberculosis and the ways in which our white blood cells help fend off the disease. Florence retired in 1938, though she still remained active in the scientific community. While back in her home state of Colorado, Florence was asked by local politicians to take a look at Denver's public health situation. She increased trash pickups, combating rat infestations, taught food safety to restaurants, push for new quality standards for milk, and helped open a new sewage treatment plant. Perhaps her biggest contribution, though, was a free x-ray program, helping identify tuberculosis in its early stages. Thanks to Florence, Denver's tuberculosis rate was cut in half. Florence Saban died in 1953 at the age of 81. She paved the way for generations of women scientists, leading by example that the best way forward is to follow your instincts. All month we're highlighting women in health and wellness. For more information and for pictures of the women we're.

Biden Says Pope Francis Called Him a Good Catholic
"Get to. I want to start with the globalists scenic tour throughout Europe. Now, I spent about an hour researching at this this morning and I found very little coverage about this. It was just kind of almost it was coverage as if this was the Emmys, or if it was the Oscars. It was like here's who showed up, here's what they wore. Here's how they wore their mask and the only questions reporters asked is who are you wearing? You know, what sort of fashion icon? Are they, are they, I guess advertising. So it started in Rome with the G 20 summit. Now these summits are largely a waste of time. It is nothing more than political theater. Joe Biden met with the Pope for an unusual amount of time. There is some Internet suspicion that there might have been something that happened in that meeting. We're going to do our own independent reporting until we kind of go through mentioning that one, but it's very strange meeting between Joe Biden and the Pope. And then the Pope comes out and he says, no, actually Joe Biden said with the Pope said, I don't think the Pope actually set up. He said, he had a Pope just wants to say, I'm such a great Catholic. Which I find very interesting for someone who is okay with a million abortions a year every single year how the Pope could call him a good Catholic, but I am not Catholic, therefore I'm not going to say much else about this Pope. You guys can email me your thoughts freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com for faithful Catholics out there that have opinions of what he has been doing or his certain perspectives. And so that's what it started in Rome, and now they're in Glasgow, Scotland. And so they all flew from Rome to Glasgow for a climate change event. So the most obvious first question is, why did they stay in Rome? Or they needed a real venue change? Why did they go to Naples or Florence? They could have just took a bus. Instead, they had to load up on private planes, and fly all the way to Glasgow, Scotland for the continuation of the internationalist climate change conference. And so Biden has been pushing for a borderless society while he was in the Vatican one of the most militarized walled off communities in kind of nations on the planet. And then he gets in a private jet, Air Force One and flies to

Machiavelli Demystified With Dr. Khalil Habib
"Habib. Welcome back to the charlie kirk show. Charlie's fit to be with you so we kind of stumbled into machiavelli. Last conversation and i promised our listeners. We will get back to it commonly you'll hear on cable television with almost no explanation. Someone say well. That's very machiavelli by this politician. Or that's very maquiavelian. And i think people at best have a very surface knowledge of machiavelli Who was this man. And why was he so important. So machiavelli was born in florence italy and you lived during the middle of fifteenth century. And he lives at a time during the renaissance where there was growing frustration with politics with the church Time for corrupt and it was a movement known as the renaissance that wanted to revive classical virtue stress. The emphasis of moral education on restoring civic harmony and restoring as states crap essentially machiavelli comes in and crashes in on this party and says that's a no go. You can't restore politics on classical moral virtue. And so what. He wants to spread in books like the prince which bookies most famous for today although does this is many years ago was one that people mostly focused on. He presses that of politics requires a cunning. You have to be manipulative. You have to be willing to use force there when you're gonna have to break with traditional moral virtue To essentially affect transition in politics for example One of his many critiques of the renaissance and the attempted to bring christianity in classical moral virtue. Together in a modern republic machiavellian. The prince talks about a situation in which a group of christians in a small town wanted to deal with criminals unchristian grounds and he says well this guy treasury borja who was a brutal dictator essentially showed mercy to the innocent by crushing. These people not turning the other cheek so in other words you measure your your use of force in relation to your end goal and if it's to bring about law and order you don't do it by a holding some kind of classical moral virtue forces necessary and so that forced burns the reputation of some kind of gangster Sort of a low philosophy a politics but It's incredibly influential and foundational in many

Parodied on seinfeld. Which i think is kind of a litmus test for cultural relevance and the seinfeld version is that kramer is going to a movie theater and he's trying to smuggle in a cafe lot hey and he gospels it. Somehow it burns his leg and he's like i'm going to sue the coffee company because the coffee was too hot and like what a ridiculous thing to sue anyone for making hot coffee hot. It's supposed to be hot. Her and all of this is based on a case. Where there is this. Elderly woman named florence. Liebeck it's actually stella liebeck. Stella why do i think her name's florence. Is there a florence liebeck. I think you're thinking of florence in the coffee machine alright. Stella that's great. What a great name. Who went to mcdonald's drive-thru and she ordered a hot coffee and it spilled somehow and she got burns from the coffee and she sued mcdonalds and the way the story went was mcdonald's had given her like thirty trillion dollars. And there was this sense of lake will what next like. Why doesn't everyone sue every large corporation for a lot of money for a product behaving in a predictable way. Yeah i mean the term that you heard a lot at the time was jackpot justice. Was this idea that people are doing these completely normal things like we've all spilled coffee on ourselves and blowing them up into these like. Oh my life was never the same. After i spilled up. You know luke warm cup of coffee on myself. It's the juxtaposition between this completely. Every day normal thing that happens to everybody and the massive settlement that this woman got by suing mcdonalds and then also i feel like maybe this isn't true but my understanding was that it was because of this like whenever you get a beverage from anywhere still today.

Imagine how interesting that would have been. After their travels. They settled in their home country england. There they had two homes a summer house in derbyshire and a winter. House in hampshire with the homes came servants. Who took care of them. And all of the housekeeping. Like i said it was a pretty easy life for the girls and the parents who had plenty of money to live in comfort during the eighteen. Hundreds most girls didn't get a great education. But william nightingale wanted the best for his daughters. So we took special interest in their learning and taught them many subjects like history geography and literature.

German latin greek italian and latin in the time florence lived called the victorian era women from wealthy families were expected to only do housework with the servants. Doing most of the work and host guests. They weren't supposed to look for jobs earn money. Florence saw this but wanted something different. She wanted to work for herself and earn money for herself. She wasn't with the way the world was. She wanted to find her purpose in life and believe there was more than running the home and taking care of guests. In fact at an early age she decided her calling in life would be to help others to ease their suffering. She loved taking care of sick pets and servants. Being a nurse seemed like a natural fit for her desire to help others but they were very upset and refused to let her do it. They told her she wasn't allowed to go to nursing school in their minds. This was very inappropriate for a woman of her wealth and status. Like i said it was a very different time and florence was going against what was normal and her day but do you think florence just went along with it nope. She was determined to become a nurse so she could help others. Finally after a lot of persuasion her father gave in and she packed.

Olivia Rubens on Her Unique Knitting Designs

Could you tell us what the influences behind your collection were. Yeah thank you so much. Wow yeah seems like is very odd. That was a time when i wasn't even thinking about kobe. It was on the other side of the world and all i was thinking about this collection out on the runway. It was really about you. Know overall femininity and identity might view grant in the end ended up. Being quite nihilistic which was that we can never fully know who we are as people and as women Somebody said something to me. Wants which was just that in order to know yourself completely. You have to meet every single person on the planet because you'll present a certain version of yourself to every single different person so unless you do that. It's impossible so i kind of ran with that. I was also kind of making criticisms about myself. Like i like to do. Just kind of point out little funny things by society in about myself and other and other people and the way that we kind of assume people's identities i think is hilarious like people watching which was something you know at the time that i was doing a lot because i'm sitting on the tube like so many hours of the day so that was part of it. It's just kind of assuming people's like based on stereotypes and kind making up stories in our heads. Because what else are we gonna do.

A pitiful audie in florence. And i just thought it was so hilarious because these these children. Which are you know. They're supposed to be fun and playful and crazy but they were just so static and each one of them was so serious. And when i was reading up on victorian photography they had to compete with painters at the time for some reason always turned out serious and so all these photographs that they really style them like we have to get it right but when arguably now we would we would say that we capture someone's full essence when we get a candid photo of them so that was really funny and then the the modern version of that was hatching girls and do they become who they are because their parents are because of them or did they choose to do that. And so there were some hilarious references in their garments and i watched way too much reality. Tv and which is where all the toys and the dolls came from in that whole collection.

A Review of the Newest Addition to the MCU: Black Widow
"I mean, the Marvel universe. Fans have been waiting for this for months and months and months, and now it's available. In theaters, and it's also on Disney plus so that you can see it there as well. It's going to be the apparently the only black widow films since Scarlett Johansson's character actually died in adventures and came this story has said a little before that. And she goes back to Eastern Europe in order to track down and ruined the great Russian spymaster who made her into a spy in the first place. And she also reunites with her fake family with which you were who she was an undercover spy in the United States in the 19 nineties in order to bring this fellow down, so it's a combination of family drama. Shall we say? With a big action, splashy action movie. I found the intimate moments in this film actually better than the action ones, which are in the typical modern way over cuts so that you can't really tell what's going on a lot of time and just overloaded with C G I the real star of the film, Although Johansson is very good is Florence Pugh. Who plays her younger, so called sister. They were sisters when they were undercover spies, and they unite along with their father and mother in order to bring down this terrible Russian mastermind who still wants to dominate the world with his army of brainwashed young women called widows. Uh, the people who Fans of the far Marvel universe are going to love this film. They're going to go out to it in droves. They're going to pay for it and dizzy. Plus, it's going to be a huge success. But it's really a kind of footnote to the series as a whole. It doesn't advance the overall marble saga very much. And as I say, it's probably a one off for Scarlett Johansson's Who cares whose character unless she miraculously comes to life will have to remain dead after this episode. Alright, that's black Widow Next up, Don Cheadle and

"Initially and i'm talking way back in time. I thought that plant doesn't belong here. It looks like the zone plant or new mexico. Plant or whatever i i was. I was a bit of a situation with a class and i turned to the professor to ask question. I must have backed up. Just a touch. I had shorts on at that point in time. And i knew i backed into something. Because the tips of leaves are bordering on being that of a needle. I understand they use the indian people used to indigenous people used to strip the leaves of some of their vantage and so on and use them as wine or minor rope and so on. Yucca is the name of the plant yucca is has been for. I don't know we can have now and going on. It's about i think half over tall boring on four and a half five five and a half feet tall. The leaves are staying at. Oh i don't know need to buy and then up comes this stem gangly looking thing when it first starts up when it starts to flower. It's very different now. Summer white white and beyond that summer kind of a creamy white there is a variegated form. And so i still think the plant belongs in arizona however when it is used here in in all zone five and six it still fits in If it's not just one plant and that one plant can be used in a perennial garden. sticking up background. That's fine but i. I've seen them used wrong or they don't i don't know they don't seem to hold their own visually against we'll call the normal foliage and things around here however i've seen the music groups and a group of yucca. Five plants whatever it might be can be seen. I swear for up to a quarter mile when they're standing tall and saw it. So i put that in there. It's it's the red white and blue time Up up close. The plants are always sending out new flower florence. If you will and and some old dead when so when you're up close you kinda see a mixture but at a distance it's all just a great big four and a half foot stem of white flour. So it's it.

"florence" Discussed on Soundrise Podcast
"Even though i had some of the similar impressions but what i think is that it's more subtle. Any might take more time for to sink in. And i liked some of the changes here. They did away with some of this bombast and i'm so glad that they decided to change the sound a bit because these this kind of formula might get tired very quickly And as a result we have a record it sounds more sparse more introspective. Because it's easier to follow the lyrics. The voice is kind of at the center of it. You can hear her very clearly. There's a very good range of emotions overall. So i think it's a kind of a record. That's a grower and takes more time for example. I really liked south london forever. This kind of nostalgia ick tune about certain areas certain periods of time for for florence say guests or whoever wrote the lyrics. I i would assume she did. But maybe i'm wrong on that account. I love the way she pays. Shit love the way. She paints this world with her lyrics and voice like that kind of you know that kind of synergy between the lyrics and the voice that's much more palpable on this record on the previous ones so in that sense. that's a welcome change compared to other records however. I'm not sure that this is a better record for it. But i'm sure that at this point in their career this the record that they had to do any any other comments on your part pretty good points there florida. I totally agree about the song southland. Forever's had had no static. Feel i think the first two tracks were very real. We in the rhythm section was very pronounced. However i think this is more for indie pop records. So with the previous record we could see some rock elements. Now this is more. This is more of a switch towards soul and pop music which is also good thing. If you're in that kind of moot but you know what..

"For example What the water me. I really loved that. Track the change of pace a more subtle bannon no very intense buildup. There's a the drums and bass underpin the song with this. Very dark beat dark atmosphere and then in the second half it picks up and you have this great combination of vocals. I don't know if it's florence over dubbing herself or probably another band member. I love the way they sing together so really good track. Shake it out the preceding magic's for a moment. Sorry for interrupting view. I just want to add one interesting impression that i had about what the water gave me for. Some reason that That song reminding me of the cranberries than i think. The floor and social sounded a bit. Like the cranberries vocalist. Dolores of did you have the same pressure maybe I can see how that could be the case. Yes so it does. it does have that similar vibe. Now that i think about it a bit so anyway very good record. I feel again. Never let me go is an interesting track as well. A power ballad. A kind of for me. At least maybe other people don't have the same impression. Bates kind of a throwback to the eighties. you know even though he has distinctly do thousands in the production. But you know ballots really fit florence. Kerr delivery adds a lot of personality to these songs. And even if something sounds a bit generic times the fact that she sings it kind of overrides it speaking of the eighties the track called lover to lover. Which is also. I think one of the singles from this album That particular song has a typical eighties. Intro has that keyboard intro in. I was like. Is this some sort of eighties. Pop rock song. And that's that's what showed me that. They are actually a very very knowledgeable musicians to that in particular florence welsh of course and I have to say that somewhere midway through the regular kind of lost..

"And i also felt the same way as you did about the song and one thing i want to add though is how these songs they really capture the anguish. The struggle of the generation united florence is from this kind of millennial struggle. Let's call it. And this is why this music resonate so much people and it's really done so wonderfully the so many great elements of this june. So you're saying something about the next tune. Yeah i'm not calling you lawyer love song and then you have our own. It's our a rather upbeat song. What he wants to say about the band and this record in particular The songs sound sort of upbeat. but it's it's also has this ballot elements almost like this are sometimes. They sound sometimes like ballots. Which is very interesting combination and probably why. A lot of people can relate to this kind of music. Yes that is also exact survey ships as well you have. It's par on and know like this is so upbeat but at the same time very melancholy. Very you know like you can can really relate to it. If you've felt the same way as as the singer yelm absolute thing you can also sense that from the lyrics now what he wants to say before. I continue talking about individual tracts. There's also the other side of this of this argument Let's say the negative side so the songs tend to have this fantastic buildup excellent build of With energy and excitement. And what if. I don't kind of disappointing. Is that when you expecting debt big. We're expecting to some terrific royal level. she just repeats the same lyrics earlier in the song. And that's the thing with almost the whole record. I think that is some sort of i. Don't wanna be harsh. But that's maybe due to the maturity or immaturity of the of the records. I was just expecting you know from those songs to to really reach new heights. But i guess you know when you repeat the same lyrics multiple times. That's the characteristic that's typical upbeat songs. And as i said some of these songs enough really upbeat. But you have this. You have this. let's say flaws did have. Maybe the same impression is that's an interesting observation. I think that they're build up is great as you mentioned. And sometimes as i mentioned before i have issues with some of these emphatic bombastic choruses but not always and i think that you might be a bit harsh. Because it's not the repetition that irks meets more about. You know the melody of those choruses that can be off sometimes but only sometimes sometimes these bombastic dramatic courses work really well and i don't think they're necessarily immature. I think this is first of all. This is still pop music even though it's some kind of weird indie twisted version of pop music. It's still pop music. So that's why there's an element of repetition but lyrically. I think florence and the machine are very expressive. I really liked some of the lyrics. I could really enjoy listening to some of her words alone outside the malian everything else so. I think that you are a bit harsh. Even though there's a grain of truth to what you're saying sometimes these Choruses can be a bit grating on your ears. But i think it also depends.

"Has a certain charisma. Especially leading vocalist writer florence welch. That is undeniable. And that's what we get to here on this record and this is why this is a huge the classic and rightfully so you may argue that some of this type was deserved after roll even though there was probably a lot of naysayers at the time and even nowadays so i wanna start off by saying that. What's really fascinating when you start listening to. This record are florence's vocals right from the get go it something that strikes you as unique as wonderful as in many ways one of a kind sort of a unicorn thing you know and rare are the singers with that kind of command of their voice not just from the technical point of view not just from the point of view of her range but also the way she expresses emotions the way she expresses attitude that's needed for certain tracks and for example dog days are over. She sounds very sensual and she carefully builds up intensity of the song now the chorus kind of struck me like a typical indy fair of the time very upbeat very enthusiastic and that to be honest with my biggest gripe with florence and the machine when i started listening to them a long time ago but overall it doesn't really bother me much because everything else is really great especially her voice and i just loved it from the get-go alexsandr when you started listening to this record. I think that the opening shrek really sets the tone for the record. You know dog days are over one of those singles. Also one of the most popular songs nowadays still here on the radio. It's a banker. it's. It's a really good song i like it. It has a powerful powerful chorus. I think that's the that's one of the most positive thinks about this band that They they tend to make this power. Fall sorta fantastic courses than the. That's what also cooks yup. I mean if that's your thing then you will definitely like Like this record Then moving on you have reverend heart another good song. Which is i think about becoming stronger and more self confident. This is mostly the thing with with their music. You know personal struggles broken relationships studying you know starting life again after Some sort of stress or trauma. Then you have this song and one interrupt you for a moment because you talked about rabbit heart.

"Who needed to be educated and her family were kind of educational activists in that regard and then reconstructions the push back against this idea of equality starts really in earnest in arkansas and things start to slide backwards very very quickly. Segregation is thoroughly entrenched. Jim crow laws are firmly established. And the little rock that florence was born in is not the one that she will live in for very long but florence is a superstar. She is incredibly bright passionate about learning. Her mother is her first piano teacher and it becomes quickly apparent that florence is wildly talented. She graduates high school at fourteen years old valedictorian of her class. She was so strongly prepared that when she entered into the new england conservatory. Moving from little rock arkansas boston. She was just sixteen years old so in her formative years she was given this sense of pride a sense of determination a sense of just what it would take for her to be a successful musician. Things are getting pretty bad for black people in arkansas and on her mother's urging she takes this opportunity to pass any see accepts black students but she decides it will be much easier if she is mexican oh and so her first year at new england conservatory she lists her hometown as pueblo mexico interesting and she definitely can pass her. Mother may have been passing as white for a period of her life. Florence probably could definitely can pass us mexican rather than african american. Wow she excels at new england conservatory studying with their top composition teacher as well as brilliant organist and pianists graduates with two degrees oregon performance and piano teaching particularly. I think it's important for people to understand how difficult it was for a woman to be heard in the classical music scene in america at that time to when she left new england conservatory as a totally prepared organist pianist and composer. She came home and became a teacher. Which is what was expected of women at that time particularly a single woman at the time so she did not lead the typical artists life. The typical male are. Let's say she's had always societal pressures along the way about what she was supposed to do and couldn't could not do and even when she did marry she married a successful lawyer in little rock she still was responsible to take care of the children and to somehow fashion a career and artistic career around this so she was teaching piano lessons and children's music at that time was a big thing for her and it fits into a larger pattern of women who are artists and who are also chowdhury for instance. You have some women artists who may be painters but they turn to print making because it's easier to manage young people around that particular medium and as soon as the kids start kindergarten they move back painting Benchley she moves back to little rock to marry a promising young attorney thomas price. He is quickly becoming a partner in his law firm. A very successful practice. She's teaching piano from their home and continuing to write music. She entered and won. Second place in to national competitions in nineteen twenty five and nineteen twenty seven for major works for concertos.

"Florence price was the first african american woman to be recognized as a serious classical composer. The first african american woman to have her work performed by a major orchestra. The first african american woman to win a national classical music prize the string of firsts that make a perkier is remarkable all on its own but her story is so much more than one of just being i at stuff She is a genuinely astoundingly. Brilliant composer and this music that was found scattered around this abandoned house is a mind blowing. Find for american classical music. Wow so for this episode. Ice spoke with two fantastic guests. Dr karen welwyn and dr guthrie ramsay. My name is got three ramsey. I am a professor of music at the university of pennsylvania. I my musicologist. a pianist and a composer. My name is karen welwyn. I'm currently teaching at howard university. The area for keyboard studies and an associate professor on faculty. Dr ramsay was the editor for a fantastic biography of florence price. By the late ray. Linda brown called the heart of a woman. And dr welwyn has premiered. Several of florence prices previously works in definitive recordings and is pursuing major projects to get more of this work out into the world. Karin wallin is also featured on a wonderful documentary of florence prices. Life called the caged bird created by james greeson which i highly recommend you can stream it online and there will be linked to that on our website and of we have to talk about the music. The music for this episode was all composed by foreign price. And i am so grateful to all the performers who generously gave us permission for me to use their work including today k. orchestra the women's philharmonic. Dr ali watts davis dr casey robards and our guest care and welwyn more information about the music is at the end of the episode and on our website. Florence price was born in eighteen. Eighty seven in little rock. Arkansas two mixed race parents who were members of the thriving black middle class of little rock. Her father was a dentist. Her mother was a music teacher and they were central figures in the intellectual elite of little rock's black community now. Lots of our listeners are probably already going. What because you just had to send us thriving intellectual black middle class. Yeah yes when are we the nineteen twenties where in one thousand nine hundred seven. Oh yeah this story is going to challenge all of our narratives about what the south looked like in this time period about how slavery transitioned into post slavery times now jim crow laws came about and what the whole idea of progress in relations and civil rights looked like Because in the years directly following the civil war during reconstruction black americans in the south had all the same rights. That white americans did voted. They held government offices. They went to segregated schools. They were professionals in everything that i learned as a kid in school and all the way up well into my college years. The story of civil rights has been a slow but steady progression from slavery to. It's better. now yeah. Yeah and that's just not how it and it's instead a story of fits and starts wild progress and huge setbacks. Yeah and of very uneven march toward equality. Yeah and you definitely. Can't generalize about the whole of the american south either because every not just every state but every region city and was approaching things differently. There is this sort of brief ten year window when the federal government is still very heavily involved in most major. Us cities in the south. At least making sure that these things are done that we had a little tiny window into what equality could look like For example even just in little rock over thirty black men were serving the state legislature when florence was born. That wouldn't happen again. Four hundred years. Her father was a dentist. Dentist to black and white families including the governor of arkansas. The remarkable thing about that stopping progress. You can really get a handle on it through the life story of a figure like this right so you could trace that family history and you get to see is it's not theoretical or abstract. It's you can see how different sets of Social customs and laws and codes directly affected real people. She came from a background of educated blacks at a time when that was unusual. The book that rate linda has written the heart of a woman. The life and music of florence price actually details the history of florence prices family from the slave era through a reconstruction and into the early twentieth century. And what we fine in. That story is a background of mixed race people some of whom were literate and when it got down to her father's generation. Her father was an educated man. A dentist and her mother was educated and she was fair skinned enough to pass for white. So interwoven into florence. Priceless story is this very american skin. Color caste system that allowed some people to become literate and some people to have it against the law for them to be literate so forest price a middle class life. Her father started schools so education was central to their family culture and her mother was a professional women. She works for an insurance company and they were settled in little rock arkansas. Which at that. Time was a kind of mecca for black people because of the opportunities that were there but at the same time you had the resonances of slavery where you had entirely illiterate class of people.
