"To this month's sponsor, Mercedes Benz, whose own famous namesake was inspired by a young muse named Mercedes. Join us all month long for fascinating stories of women who are drivers of creativity, inspiration, and artistic expression. Before we get started with today's episode, a warning that it contains violent content that might not be suitable for young children. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is what manica. This month we're talking about muses. Women who were drivers of creativity and inspiration. Today we're talking about a woman who's desperate act became immortalized in Toni Morrison's award winning novel beloved. Please welcome Margaret Garner. Margaret Garner, who was sometimes called Peggy, was born on June 4th, 1834 in boonville, Kentucky, at maplewood plantation. Both of Margaret's parents were enslaved, which meant that she, too, was enslaved from the day she was born. As a child, Margaret was put to work in the plantation's main house. Sometimes, she traveled with the family into Cincinnati, a free territory. When she was around 16 years old, she became romantically involved with a man named Robert Garner, who was enslaved on another plantation nearby. The two were soon married, and the next year they welcomed their first child, Thomas. But trouble was on the horizon. Maplewood plantation were Margaret lived, was sold to the original owner's brother Archibald. Over the next 6 years, marker gave birth to three more children. Because Margaret and Archibald's wife were often pregnant around the same time. Margaret was forced to serve as a wet nurse while weaning her own babies. Given the light skin of some of Margaret's children, their significance speculation that Archibald fathered at least two of them. Because of the extreme power imbalance in their relationship, it's assumed that sexual encounters between them were not consensual. In the harsh winter of 1855, Margaret and her husband decided they would try to escape north to freedom. The Underground Railroad was at peak operation, and Margaret was pregnant with her 5th child. A plan was made. The family would cross the border into Cincinnati, Ohio. There, Margaret had a free cousin, Elijah kite. On January 27th, 1856, Margaret, Robert, their four children and Robert's parents crossed the frozen Ohio River and made it to Elijah's home. Within hours of their arrival, chaos descended. Archibald gaines and a crew of federal Marshals stormed in. Slave catchers had been tracking them. It was at this moment that Margaret made a decision that would be forever remembered in history. She couldn't live with the idea that her children would suffer the same way she had. She grabbed a butcher knife and slit the throat of her youngest daughter, Mary. She'd started to stab her other children when she was discovered and imprisoned. Death from her perspective was better than returning to slavery. Cincinnati had a strong abolitionist community, and that community stepped up when it came time for Margaret's trial. A lawyer named John Jolie volunteered to represent them. He argued that because Margaret had made several trips to Cincinnati with the Garner, she was a free person. But the opposing side made the case that because Margaret had willingly returned to Kentucky. She had surrendered that free status. By the end of February, 1856, Margaret and Robert were returned to their enslavers. Their lawyer tried to prolong their freedom by convincing officials to try Margaret and Robert for murder and accessory to murder. Anything was better than returning to slavery. If they had been convicted of murder, it would have also set a precedent of trying them as people rather than property. But the garners enslavers caught wind of the plan and hit the couple across a network of plantations. Just as authorities were close to finding Margaret, she was sold to Archibald gaines brother. Authorities never found her, and she never stood a second trial. In 1858, Margaret died from typhoid. Though her life was short, her story has lived on through Toni Morrison's 1987 Pulitzer Prize winning novel inspired by the events of Margaret's life, beloved. The book was later adapted into a movie and was the inspiration for the 2005 opera entitled Margaret Garner. In a 2010 interview about the opera, Morrison told NPR, the interest is not the fact of slavery. The interest is what happens internally, emotionally, psychologically. When you are in fact enslaved and what you do in order to transcend that circumstance. That really is what Margaret Garner reveals. It was the right thing to do, but she had no right to do it. You see those women were not parents. People insisted that they have children, but they could not be mothers because they had nothing to say about the future of those children. Where they went, they could make no decisions. They frequently couldn't even name them. So that they were denied humanity in a number of ways. But they were denied that role. I mean, has nothing to do with history. It's what women do. And so she claimed something that she had no right to claim, which was the property, her children, and claimed it so finally that she decided that she could not only dictate their lives, but in them. And when one knows what the life, what their future would be, her decision is not that difficult.

Wokeism Is Splitting Democrats and Uniting Republicans

"One thing that strikes me in all of your works and let's list them again. So you've got the return of Christendom. These are the essential reads from doctor turley. You've got the new nationalism and beauty matters. And it's clear from your podcast and from your videos that you are a real optimist, Steve. Your man of faith, you believe the secularists can be challenged. And you have a very positive attitude to this challenge. What makes you think that they can be defeated? Because I look at the last 5, 6 years, and I see a man who garnered more votes than any other incumbent president who was banned from Twitter, who was probably removed from office illegally in that election. I see a handful of maga candidates who are denuded of their committee membership who are lambasted by the mainstream. What makes you think that beyond the personal life, the religious life, the family life, that this revitalized conservativism can actually win politically as well. We can look at it so many different angles. I'll stick with one that's wraps up nice bow, everything we've been talking about. And that is the reality that woke ism, which is the value system of our political elite, whether it's politics, corporate, you name it university and the like. Wilkinson is unsustainable. Absolutely and totally unsustainable. And we have data on that, which is really fascinating. Eric Kaufman of the University of London wrote in very fascinating article on the data that he analyzed that found that when you ask any amount of Democrats, whether they support any woke issue. So CRT to kids, transgender athletes and women's sports. You name it. They're always split on their answer. It's about 50 50, 60, 40, that kind of thing. We're actually seeing it in the Disney in the parental rights bill or now law in Florida, where a fox poll found that 52% of Democrats actually supported that. It was really fascinating. However, when you ask Republicans the same question, do you support teaching CRT in our schools? Do you support transgender athletes in women's sports? What answer do you think you get? And I've done this. I've done this in one of the American freedom tours. In Phoenix, 3000 people, I said, you know, what's your answer? And it a whole stadium would know what we're finding is woke ism is splitting the Democrats and its uniting the

"garner" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"Past 5 years, I've written over 1500 articles about injustice in America. I've studied thousands of cases of police violence, and I've worked directly with hundreds and hundreds of families that have experienced it firsthand. And even though most media outlets have stopped telling these stories, police brutality is as deadly as it's ever been in the entire history of the country. Do you know why? For all intents and purposes, police brutality is legal in America. Police policy manuals may discourage it in communities across the country may absolutely despise it, but the bottom line is that our courts are condoning it and they do so each and every time officers who brutalize people are set free. And the list of people unjustly killed by American police is long. It doesn't have dozens of names. It has thousands and thousands of names. Over the past ten years alone, over 10,000 men, women and children have been killed by American police. In many developed nations, over the same period of time, police have killed fewer than a hundred people, in some nations, police have not killed a single person in an entire generation. American police on average kill at least three people per day. Sometimes it's many, many more. Sometimes it's as many as 12 or 13 people a day. And conservatives and liberals alike seem to at least agree that most police departments have a few bad apples. But the bottom line is that nearly none of those bad apples, including the most egregious, heinous, despicable officers in the country, none of them are being held accountable for their repeated crimes against humanity. The officers who killed tamir rice come to mind. The officer who shot and killed Raquel Boyd in Chicago comes to mind. The cop who killed ezel Ford in Los Angeles comes to mind. The cops who killed Alton Sterling and philando Castile come to mind. The officer who killed Eric Garner comes to mind, even in the worst cases, the bad apple still aren't facing justice. And what I'm about to say are the clearest, most unmistakable words I've ever used on police brutality. Two Supreme Court cases, Tennessee versus Garner, and Graham versus Connor have effectively legalized police brutality. And police brutality will continue to remain fully legal until those cases are confronted head on. Over the next three days, I'm going to break these cases down for us, and then give us some clear action items that we can take and give us some solutions that we can build together so that we can fight back. And until we do this, justice will be exceedingly rare, no matter how hard we fight. Today I need to tell you a story that's at the center of why police brutality is legal in America. This story is adapted from two articles that I originally wrote for the New York Daily News during my time as the senior justice writer there. On the night of October 3rd, 1974, 15 year old Edward Garner, an unarmed 110 pound black middle school student in Memphis, Tennessee, was accused of stealing a wallet with $10 in it. When Memphis police officer Elton Hyman spotted Edward climbing a fence to get away, the officer shot Edward in the head and killed him. He had no reason to believe that Edward had a gun. The officer didn't see a gun. Edward was, in fact, unarmed. He had no reason to believe that Edward was a physical threat to anyone. Edward was a tiny boy. In fact, the theft was a misdemeanor, a young Edward Garner basically received the death penalty over it. Of course, this was an unjust response to such a petty crime. But at the time, Tennessee had a law dating all the way back to slavery in 1858. As did 20 other states, which made it fully legal for a police officer to shoot a fleeing suspect in order to effect an arrest. Edward's father, clem T Garner, was, of course, outraged and crushed. His son made a mistake, but it shouldn't have cost him his life. For months, then years. Klimt Garner fought the Memphis police department and the state of Tennessee with everything he had just to get some semblance of justice for his son. He relentlessly sued the city of Memphis. He sued the mayor of Memphis. He sued the officer that was involved. He sued them Memphis police department. All on grounds at his son's rights were violated and that the use of deadly force against his son wasn't just excessive, it was extreme. It became the singular mission of clem T Garner to get some type of justice for his son. He spent every dime in every free bit of time he had on this case. A full 9 years later, the 6th circuit Court of Appeals, a federal body sided with mister Garner and ruled that the 120 year old law that allowed the officer to shoot and kill his son should be struck down immediately because it violated the Fourth Amendment's protection against unreasonable seizures. Edward's father won an enormous victory. It was covered at the time as a huge victory in the fight against police brutality. Up to that point, it was virtually unheard of for a black family to win a legal victory against the police department. Interestingly, though, the current U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, who wasn't on the Supreme Court at the time, he was just an attorney in the Reagan administration, wrote a very strong 15 page brief, arguing that the circuit court had made the wrong decision. And that police should be able to shoot fleeing suspects like Edward Garner. Emboldened by a leader's paper, the city of Memphis decided to appeal the ruling all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. 11 years after young Edward Garner was first shot and killed by a Memphis police officer over a wallet with $10 in it, the U.S. Supreme Court took the case. That case is Tennessee versus Garner. And in it, the majority of the Supreme Court ruled that the 6th circuit court was actually right. They were right to strike down the Tennessee law, permitting the police officer to shoot and kill young Edward Garner. The decision was widely celebrated by the legal community and the civil rights community, and they all believed it was a huge victory for victims and families who fought against police.

Natalie Winters on the Connection Between EcoHealth Alliance and Anthony Fauci

"What else do we need to know about Fauci, federal funds, connections to Wuhan? What is this thing? Let me put it like this. What's the thing that shocked you the most in all of your research? Oh, that is a very good question. You know, we have a story coming out very soon. That details the really I would say unprecedented surge I'm talking over 300% and investment income that was garnered by eco health alliance, which people may know is the very controversial nonprofit that received funds from Anthony Fauci to collaborate on that coronavirus. With Wuhan. Precision in word usage as an old intelligence guy cut out. The eco alliance is the Kat out that allowed Fauci to send a lot of our money to the communist biodefense lab in China. So sorry, carry on. And yes, in the year before COVID-19, their investment profits were under a $100,000. It's a nonprofit so you can see on the 9 90s. But following the pandemic, it surged to nearly $400,000. And that is, of course, amidst this group eco health alliance, continuing to get millions in taxpayer funded grants since COVID-19 began and I think to me the most insane part of the whole story is that eco health alliance got not just one, but two PPP loans from the federal government worth millions of dollars. In other words, the group that likely helped create and start this pandemic is now getting taxpayer funds to fund their salaries to keep doing risky gain of function research in partnership with the Chinese Communist Party, which the president of eco health alliance frequently goes on interviews defending and says, oh, people just quote misunderstand the Chinese Communist Party. So I think in all of this, that was something that really

Ben Affleck Says He Would've Stayed Drunk With Jenn Garner

"I give Ben ask like a lot of credit. He came out and said flat out, he felt trapped in his marriage to Jennifer Garner. It's tough to say these things when you've got kids involved and you're still talking to each other because your co parenting. He said, we probably would have ended at each other's throats. I probably would have still been drinking had he stayed with gen Garner. Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. Can't leave because of the kids. I'm not happy. What do I do? And when I did was, I drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution. I give the guy a lot of credit. I really do, because that's not an easy thing to say. First of all, it's not an easy thing to come to grips with. Anybody who's been in a situation like that with a marriage is going south and you're coping, you're coping in some way that's not healthy. I know a lot about that because I was down that road as well. It's tough to say that flat out when you know you're going to be affecting your ex-wife, your kids read the news. So what I'm saying is he says to how it's done he hasn't done his drinks since he's been clean for a while. He'll never go back to it. I think, you know, you can give him all the shit you want but being with J.Lo. I think she's pretentious and, you know, she's not my type, although I do admit she's a beautiful woman, just not my type. And look, it's working out for him.

"Don't know what's going to happen next. Don't try and write it. It'll come. It does. That's what this does. Well, that was great. Listen, Alan Garner admitting that he makes it up as he goes along. In the best way in the best way. Was that fun? Huge fun. I mean, it's just incredible really to think that you could have an archeologist a physicist, as well as a literary critic. Discussing a work of fiction. I mean, there are very few writers, I think, whose work engages other disciplines in the way that Garner's fiction does. And although it's a very short book, it's so, as I hope you'll have got from the discussion. It's so artfully crafted. And so complex in the themes that it's dealing with. Yeah, it was a great honor, actually, to be involved in it. A lovely thing to do and lots of lovely battle listed listeners came to the gigant there as well. They did, they did, you know, as we had Philip Pullman on the front row, no pressure there with Jeff his wife. Neil Phillip, the leading one of the leading Alan Garner scholars. And Nick fool brick, who is a bad lister's fan and an Oxford. I mean, it was a really, really good turnout from. As well as Patrick hargett and from fourth estate and Carolina Sutton, his literary agent. And was Allen present rather amusingly Allen didn't want to be present as a sort of presence, but he was watching it. And I got a marvelous read it out, he got marvelous email from him sending it out to all the panel at the end. I feel that mister bodley will have rarely had such a diversity of disciplines and articulate wisdom and talents together in the room before. So thank you, one and all. And I think I understand treacle walker better now. Lots of love from one that you want of a mister Allen gun. Oh, that's great. Well, that's very good. So job done.

"Just takes over. Erica, do you I mean, do you want to try and put this book in given that Alan's method, which I think captures that perfectly in context of his other work? Because it's a really interesting. I think none of us could have predicted that Alan would write treacle walker even predict anything about him. You know, that's a dangerous game. I suppose what I would say is that when people ask me about Alan Garner's work, often they ask me if they haven't read it. Where they should start. Or someone who said to them, you know, they read Alan Garner, but someone has, where should they start? And there are lots of different ways you could answer that. But this is actually, although Allen is now 87, I think. You could start here. You know, this is a remarkable book. That can be read just for itself, a story as Alan just said where you want to know what happens next. To this boy who hears this voice and has these different kinds of encounters, including a remarkable encounter with himself. But I carries with it so many of the themes of Allen's work. And thinking about this boy, I thought about the boy that Alan described himself as in where shall we run to his remarkable memoir? The dreaming in strandloper, the sense of traveling that's in Thursday. Alan's work, where does it sit in the context of Alan's work? Everything he does is so different. And yet everything is also of a piece of the hole and having a remarkable one book. Cut the one book. You know, it is, it is one book about life about time about solitude. You know, he was a very alone. As talked about being very alone as a sick, little boy. And I found that really moving in this book a real kind of recollection because it's not this boy is in a house, it's not a spoiler to say there's no parents. There's no the only adults are the bulk body. And treacle walker. And yet there is consolation. And the sort of consolation of the spirit and of the self is something that runs throughout his work. It's interesting. He said in an interview that the boy wasn't him, but it's what he might have been if he hadn't been through Manchester grammar and education. And that if he'd never left higher education, you'd have ended up like treacle walker trigger walker in the book is full of learning. So it's a kind of extraordinary rights of passage novels. That's one of the more remarkable rights of passage novels, I think. It's a book about the giving and taking of permission. Yeah. Two of what's allowed and what is not I mean your long conversations over the years with Alan about of almost seems to me that between the two of you more or less solved for two cultures debate. Fiction is a kind of scientific inquiry. Yes, I think one of the phrases that came up quite a lot we were talking was melting snow. And this idea that CP snow to the cultures was really an observation of what was happening rather than the statement of what is. And although science and artists seem to be at the opposite ends of the spectrum, the methodologies are actually very, very similar. What a scientist does is creates a model of the universe. They poke it and they prod it. And if it's consistent with the way the universe works, they say, that's okay. We've done it. We understand it. And in the same way, I think we now write some book. He creates the characters he creates the environment at his experiment. And if it's self consistent, if he tells the self consistent story, then he says, that's a success. And that is actually the scientific method. And so the two ends of the spectrum are actually have almost gone round and joined at the other side. It's the same process. Yeah, it's really interesting. One thing in the book, which it was, again, I think, you know, you say hooking up various bits of balance. The fact that he reads a real comic, as you can see, knockout comic from the 1940s. And particularly the Stone Age kit. The ancient Brit was pursued by whizzy the wizard and the Brit bashes. But this is the other thing about Alan. He is absolutely got his route. His feet rooted in popular culture. And we just have that clip number 6 because this came out of the interview is a bit of a revelation for me. I have to say. One of the most important parts of my adult imagination was form by a series of run and I think 1917 9 to 1981. Sapphire and steel. Which doesn't entirely with this with its quantum idea of the world. And it also drew heavily on folklore. And I suddenly saw treacle walker congeal in these vague ideas. In the last shot of the last episode where sapphire and steel are imprisoned in a roadside cafe, the trapped for all eternity and the last shot is a pull out to see them looking out of the window in the cosmos behind the stars. I thought that's true to welcome. I mean, that's brilliant. Well, well done Liz for winking that out. So I don't think it makes me want to go back and watch that far and steal. I think I was missing a whole, the idea of saffron steel is sort of quantum entertainment. But I mean, that is the thing that the books are there is a humor as well in Alan's writing always. And I think there's some very good repartee in the novel, particularly between walker and the boy. He takes a long time to write his books. It's a very short book. But if ever there was a writer who, you know, I'm sorry, this is such a short, but such a long book. I didn't have time to write a short one. I mean, it takes you feel that there is a process at work of abrading and every single word has gone is doing its job. And I just love the idea. He was very he will start to know where he's going to start and he knows where he's going to end. In fact, the paragraphs at the beginning and the end are almost identical. Do you want to I mean, spoiler alert, but what do you think is happening at the end? Anyone want to have a stab? Do.

"Around this beautiful house. Soon noticed, as we were walking around, there were lots of hours. And so we got in the car to drive back to this field from langdon and suicide. I know Alan was not okay. I'm just, but I didn't know that he was no mythologist as well. Because he told they had written this book about hours. And then we sort of put two and two together. And realize that our Ghana was the Alan government. And he wasn't a normal father. In fact, he knows a very little amount, but. I don't think he did from that time on. We were good friends, because we just got on well together. And then from them, I obviously heard about Alan's books and we started reading them. And have never stopped since. Yeah, he's always very interesting about the forms of friendships. He doesn't tend to form franchises with other writers, but he put him in a particle physicist or an archeologist or a historian. He's very interesting. Should we have the first clip? Can we hear the first? We've got some clips to see now. I should just say from two sources. One is from the book itself some readings from the book by Robert Pao. The actor who was at Manchester grammar school with Alan and indeed matches the gram school is the book is dedicated to MGS. And also some clips of Alan speaking to Liz his daughter who's here this evening. Shall we have the first clip of a bit from the novel? Joe let go of the post. He flung himself against the sour into the coat onto the vial beneath. And the man opened his arms to let him in, but did not hold him. Joe roared. He yelled, he wretched. Then he pushed himself away and crawled to the opposite seal and sat. His wrists on his knees, shaking. His head drooped. It was a hurl of thrombo a winter, said the man. A lumpa hummock of night. Nothing more. Joe could not speak. But summer is nearly come. Joe lifted his head. Chaco. Treacle. Walker. Treacle walker, I have in this land. What sort of a name is that? I heal. He. Made better. All things save jealousy. Which none can. He opened his bag and took out a bone. It was a shin. Narrow, old, hollow, yellow, crazed with black lines, polished, and holes cut in, and has slit at one end. What's that? Said Joe. I made it from a man that sang. Can I ever see? Treacle walker passed the bone to Joe. He held it and felt it shape. What's it for? Jekyll walker took back the bone, put his mouth to the slit, his fingers on the holes, closed his eyes and played. The chimney filled with two. It was a tune with wings, trampling things, tightened strings, buggers and bogles and brags on their feet. The man in the oak, sickness and fever that set in long-lasting sleep the whole great world with the sweetness of sound, the bone did play. Joe sapp and did not speak. The chimney was silent. It is a way for him to sing now. Said treacle walker. Can I ever go? Treacle walker passed the bone across the fire basket. What must I do? Hold, and breathe. Joe put the bone to his lips. Like this. He blew. The notes came, pure. The call of a cuckoo. Across the valley, a cuckoo answered. Did you hear that? Cuckoo. Erica, let me throw this to you. Can you give us a sort of a pricy of the book? I mean, tell us, tell us what we're just we know there's a boy and we know there's a man. What else do we need to know? You don't want to know too much. I don't think it's true. If you haven't read it, there's a boy. There's a man, there's a correspondence between worlds. What I feel about Allen's work is that he shows us that the connection between this world and the other world is right in front of us. If we choose to look, if we choose to step into it. And the two worlds are like a palimpsest. Existing on top of one another. And it's the story of a boy discovering how he can exist inside time and outside of time and how the objects that are all around him connect him to magic. That's what I would say about this book. I have to say that's a pretty brilliant person. Sorry. That doesn't make you want to read the book. I think nothing will. I'm interested in the objects that sort of string through the book. I mean, we'll come on to we'll come on to the bodies a bit later on. But right from the beginning that there are objects. There's the bone of a sheep and treacle walker has a bag that was bob about the name treacle walker in the middle. All of these objects, as you could see that Alan was fingering various the Dober, which is a marble. These are real objects. As an archeologist, I mean, is that something that sort of you respond to? Absolutely. And that flute you've just heard about really exists. It dates to the Bronze Age and it is made of human bone. This is a piece of research that was done by colleagues of ours recently and it was found in a burial. And archeologists have spent a long time working out how to read time through the layers that build up with a cake and we go back through those lenses through time. But that's not how time comes at us. Time comes at us, it erupts out of those layers and objects come to us and touch us from different times. And so what I love about the objects in this book is that that's what they're doing. They come out of all sorts of different times. The child's time, time, long past, who knows time in the future. And they are the points of connection that create these moments of encounter, where time is loosened and you feel its presence with you. So the flute, the marble, the donkey stone, which for people who don't know what it is, it's a byproduct of the cement industry that kept housewives busy to polish their doorstep and show that they were good industrious women who looked after the threshold now in Alan's hands. Something completely other because of course his house is resonant with these objects that are hidden under the threshold the half and in the chimney that are about keeping your house safe from things that should not enter. And the care you show to the house is part of how you keep things out or let things in and show your care for a place. So the materials, the objects are about the things that one must do to care for the places that one lives in. And we are just that momentary inhabitants of them. There are other people who have come before and will come after..

"Here with my guest. Joe Mitchelson from backlash did. How old are you? Hi, Andy. It's good to see you. And this is a little surprise thing we've got for people. You will have hopefully heard an episode of that listed last week and you'll hear another episode of battle listed this week. But we've got a special event recording for you now that took place at the bodleian library in Oxford at the end of October 2021 to celebrate the publication of Alan Garner's new novel which is called, it's called trick or walker. It's his tenth novel. And Allen is in his 80s, 87, and the reason why this isn't what I don't know. This isn't a canonical episode that listed for two reasons. One because we did Alan Garner about 5 years ago, we did his book red shift episode 31 and that you can find that episode on our website at that listed dot FM. And but also because very happy to say this isn't about listed because treacle walkers in new book and we tend to do books from the backlist as the name of the podcast suggests. But a panel gathered to celebrate Alan's work and his new novel, and John is there anything else you'd like to say before we go over to the recording? Yeah, fans of Alan Garner and anybody interested in the craft of fiction. I think we'll probably find it quite illuminating. It was a really good panel. So we go over now, recorded on tape to the bodleian library and join your host, John Mitchelson. Good evening, and welcome to this special edition of battle listed. We almost to the day 5 years ago started this podcast with Andy Miller and myself to celebrate to give new life to old books. We've never done a podcast on a new book before. But I'm guessing if ever there was a new book that could be located outside time that is both new and ancient. It's a new novel by Alan Garner and treacle walker published today by fourth estate is the subject of the discussion that we're going to have. I've got three amazingly well qualified guests to join us today. We're breaking the format slightly my partner in crime and is cheering virtually from the sidelines. So I'm in control of the ship this evening. I will introduce you to our guests. Melanie Giles, who is a senior lecturer in archeology at the university of Manchester, also the author of this book bog bodies, which is fast becoming the definitive book on the subject. And both bodies play an important role in the novel. Then there is Erica Wagner for 17 years later to the times, writer critic books on among other things Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, Washington, the architect of Brooklyn Bridge, but she's also the editor of this book. First light, a collection of writings and celebration of Alan Garner's work, which was published by unbound my company. Just saying that off the top, so people know. 5 years ago and is in paperback for the first time today. So it's a sort of dual celebration. And then finally bob zinc, who is a physicist, emeritus professor at Huddersfield university and it is out of conversations with between bob and Alan that the subject about landscape about time about particle physics, many of which we'll cover some of those, I think in the discussion that the story of treacle walker emerged. And I am John mitchinson, the publisher of unbound, the crowdfunding publisher, and I had the pleasure in a former press for a period of time being Alan's publisher and it is at a hugely honored Allen and griselda, who are not here, but our present. They are watching, so to be asked to host this tonight. So thank you. But I thought we might kick off. Shall we kick off with the question that we always ask about this? Did I start with you and when you first became aware of Alan and Alan's work? Well, I had a wonderful history teacher at high school, a rural comprehensive endorsement called Maggie Daniel. And I was lucky enough to be taught both English and prehistory by her in my first year and she recommended as I was already in love with archeology that I should read Alan's book. So I headed to the library. And I found his children's books first and I've been reading him ever since I suppose hand in hand with learning about the past, which I'm finally ended up at Manchester and had the great privilege of beginning to work with him on some archeological projects, things he'd found in and around his home and wonderful conversations that flowed from there. I mean, it is astonishing that the house he's been in for what must be 60 years now and he's in Brazil between them have preserved every single shard of pottery everything that they found and it is in itself a kind of an extraordinary site. And I should say that the black and trust that is the trust that manages the site for education purposes is kind of the founder of this particular face this evening. So, great. Erica. I didn't read Alan Gardner's work growing up. I grew up in the United States in New York and I think for whatever reason books that are read by children seem to travel less well, even still now, I think. So it was only when I was at the times. I was the literary editor of the times for a long time. And I came across a flamingo classic edition of the stone book Quartet by an author called Alan Garner of whom I had never heard. And I thought who is this classic author of whom I never heard? I opened the book and was swept away. And wanted to meet him and interview him and was told by a mutual friend a wonderful storyteller, called Ben hagerty, who many in this room will know that he was quite a tricky character. And that he really didn't like journalists. So I should be introduced to him and I was, and that was 20 years ago and more now. And I became a devotee and ended up as you say editing this, this wonderful companion first light. The only thing I'll say about it that seems to me that sort of expresses the miraculous nature of Alan's work is when I organize the book. I couldn't think of how to organize it. And it's just organized alphabetically, the contributors are in alphabetical order. And yet somehow this is perfect. It's that sort of garnier and kind of hidden or pure would come onto that. But it's actually a little bit in a little bit embarrassing. I got a close friend and historian Richard Maurice introduced pseudonym to archeologists and one of them called Alan invited Sue and I ran to his house for dinner. And he and griselda showed us.

And you're thinking about your legacy and what you leave behind but when you when you visit the parks now do you look at your work and do you. Are you able to remember that feeling that fourteen year old boys excitement and vision. And are you able to sort of step back and go. I said i was gonna work here. I said were make this. And i made this. This is this is something that i made. And and sort of distance yourself from the work and from a personal emotional level. Yes sometimes i have to sit back and often thing. I know it's been forty five years since i was a kid. Nice little a myself wants the while on the site is giving you know this is just. It's almost just like a flash in your here and we got this giant facility. We've got another education across the street. Nowadays people building all the subtraction stuff. Like wow you know. This is really amazing and You know it's it's You know i do. I do. I go to parks. People always say will this visit ruin the magic for having built things. Well you know. Because what it is is that i i go to. The park usually formally aghast once a year. Now disneyland we go and actually take guided tour and recently do that is because you get kind of walk through the place you you kinda get special treatment and you're gonna get a chance to really not have to worry about zoom around kind of relaxing. Look around in things on them. But i don't look at the stuff that we built. I sit in about look at the people. And i see them. React to it you know. I like to watch people's faces when they see things and react to it. And i love to take people who've never been there and watch them react to it you know. And that's how i get. My enjoyment now is seeing people. Enjoy what we do you know. It's the perfect answer. 'cause i said earlier that i think there's a lot of of in garner holt productions.

And so that was Radiator springs that was milestone and then the dragon that was a huge milestone so kind of like every decade. Kinda like there's one on the lindell unicycle. Rider didn't have out for steeper job. So i can point to milestone figures that all were critical in the development chucky cheese. You know i walk through this building. I said the other day to of your band. I was waiting. This i said the we have the first shot and it was ever built.

Thanks a lot. You always have a whole new you know and a so. We are very meeting to me and very important to me in in their own way. You know but those specific i think the milestone and say for walt. It all started with a mouse. It's mickey for you.

Conservative Influencer Amala Ekpunobi's Message to Young BLM Activists

"I have to ask you this given your parentage. We talked to us. Well, tell us, what is your message? To young Americans who go on Black Lives Matter marches and who believe that this is an organization that's going to bring justice to America. What is your explanation to them of what BLM really is? Oh, I have a lot to say on this matter. If you know me or if you've heard me, you know that I have a BLM fist tattooed on my arm because I was that much in support of Black Lives Matter. Yeah, don't let your 16 year olds get tattooed. I was attending BLM protests whenever they were happening in my home state of Florida. And what I will say is just take a deep dive into Black Lives Matter and tell me one thing that they've done to actually help the black community with the millions and millions of dollars that they have amassed. I can tell you about the real estate properties that their leaders have bought. I can tell you about the different families of police shooting victims who have not seen a dime of the money that BLM has garnered from their protests and their riots in our streets. And they can tell you about all the different black businesses that were taken down and destroyed all in the name of George Floyd in that summer of BLM riots. So I can give you an entire list of the ways that Black Lives Matter has wronged the black community and failed to address actual issues that are happening in the black community. Yet I don't see a list of any good that they have done. Any progress that they have made when it comes to race relations in America. And what that proves to people, especially young black people is that their interest is not your interest. They're not in the interest of keeping you safe. They're not in the interest of making you successful. They are in the interest of destroying our institutions and they will do that by whatever means make it possible for them

Why Does Gen Z Believe Leftist Garbage?

"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian, and amala E. So, you are at the forefront. You are probably the newest national personality for this amazing institution that is pragya university. Will you tell us a little bit about first because you're in the trenches? Will you tell us why? Generates, what are you Generation Z, what are you? Yeah, I am. Okay. So why does Gen Z? Believe all this garbage. Break it down for us. Is it just the schools or tell us how they believed what you believed? I think it's a multitude of things. I think schooling is really important. I think that's a big part of it now, although it wasn't such a big part of it when I was younger, but the rise of CRT, critical race theory and DEI, diversity equity and inclusion is particularly putting young people at risk to believe this sort of ideology. But I think more so than that. It's social media and mainstream media. What they do is they pull these emotional stories. I'll talk about it in my case, things like tamir rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, the police brutality narrative. I was inundated with that narrative by mainstream media and by social media. And of course, you hear these harrowing stories of abuse. And so you'll like a post talking about how Michael Brown was shot and killed for being black and suddenly that's all you see on your social media feeds. And the big tech overlords are cognizant of that. They're pushing this sort of ideology to young people and everybody on their platforms. So I was getting it from social media. I was getting it from mainstream media. And then I had the brilliant combination of also getting it from my mother at home. And it didn't matter how successful I was as a young black female. I went through school. I was valedictorian of my high school. I worked a job after school. I started my own club at school. I got all these scholarships. I was inquired by Yale to go to Yale. And yet you would have asked me and I would have told you, I'm a press because I'm a black woman in America. And it's because these emotional stories that do not speak to a larger truth or a larger systemic pattern are so pervasive and they're able to cut through actual logic and reason when it comes to young

We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years.

Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one

"That. I'm late to the party. I just saw the. Hbo documentary on spielberg uh-huh. And you look at that guy just realize okay. He's the magician And he's just so good at what he does. And then you watch the documentary and you realize how hard he works right now. How much he studies and how much prep-work he does able to be the maestro on the day yeah it did when i was Working tv commercials that did work with some of those big directors. I did a couple of michael bay commercials. And i worked with tony scott and it was interesting to see the difference in those two guys. Oh yeah on set. And tony scott was the the leader of the army. Everyone loved him. Everyone would go to battle with him and he was constantly moving in just had so much positive forward momentum as a person You know since the play. Let's go do this. Pick up a camera. Let's go do that. And michael bay was just. It was the worst really damn experience. Really yeah i mean. I think we went through like three days on that job. Yeah like throwing their walkies into the grand canyon because they were so mad and these intense Just berating. He was berating the stunt drivers and It was tough. And i've made a couple of movies with them so i honestly believe he wouldn't even understand that that happened really. Yeah because i think he so he loves it so much and yes such a kid at heart. I think he just loves doing it. He wants to just go fast and be bright. I think that he wouldn't even. I think he would be like probably saw those as. Hey we're gonna have a beer. Like i don't think he that is true actually turned his He was he was never turning his eye on us. In fact i always tell the story that it's it was kinda great to be as we're kind of invisible to him so he could be having a meltdown in someone and i could be standing three feet from him and he's not like what are you looking at get outta here right. He just didn't even see me. Well he's you know he's also doing eighty five setups a day. Sure you know so. He's on a ten million dollars ford commercial or he's and he doesn't need ten million dollars he did the first batboys for twenty eight. Yeah and he's just a maniac in that way he just loves it and he wants to get every squeeze every bit of juice out of the orange he can as he's making the movie and i think that that you're changing my mind. A lot of. I've no the guy very well i've done a di- did I worked on pearl harbor with him. And he did armageddon at the studio when we were there and and the rock. And so i know him and i've been in the trenches with him right. I've gone head to head with him on some things. But i but i but i what i love about him is that it's not punitive and it's not ego it's all about the work all right and it's just a guy who has just like let's go pick up and he's excited and and yeah i'm sure he can night rough to hear this perspective and also you should never judge someone three or four days out of their life you know but i think that's the way it works. I don't think he would. I don't think he'd be like yeah right. It wasn't a great. I just think that there are certain. I just think there are certain coaches to that are like do. Have you ever watched last chance you. Yeah yeah you know you just see that coach. And i just don't i don't think he i don't think he'd like hates those kids. I think he thinks we're gonna win. And then if we win you're all ships rising tide there are i. I've worked other directors that are just complete. You know sociopathic assholes. That just mean people right right And he's not that now and you don't wanna work with those those people even even if they're great likes to shore will tied. I feel like we could talk for another hour. yes this is awesome. I would love to hang out here in atlanta anytime. Go get some dinner. Whatever anytime Thank you for picking arthur. Thank you and if you're listening and you have not seen the original. Arthur my god Just watch it yes it holds up. It's still so so funny.

"Will. Yeah and just but also just his performance of how how. Where am i in relation to fuck. Because when he was drinking with that rives five hours before his wedding. Bidermann comes in and goes five hours. Yeah so it's like an animal of the day basically morning and then and then he goes to get her at the diner and he says i'm getting married in twenty minutes and so he's got a track like how sober he is. Yeah and he doesn't perfectly yeah. I love that scene in the bar. With that. Guy amazes he when dudley moore when arthur starts to get all worked up he gets up and tries to leave a couple of times see. He's not into that at all. I don't have a real. He's like And also he when when arthur is going to meet with susan's dad in the hamptons. It's my favorite sequence of my favorite comedy. Yeah well think about. He's driving drinking again. Yeah out of the bottle. And then he stops in front of the thing and industrial laugh. Oh yeah and that's when you know he's there he's there and he can he. Can he can face all the butler stuff. Are you sure you wanna be a nightclub comic. It was amazing. You choose you. Did you hate this moose. The the most stuff The for the funniest line to me is right. At the beginning. With the moose. What first of all the way they had that shot framed down low with that giant fucking snows in between them and he makes a joke and looks the moose and just because this is a tough room. But i don't have to tell you that. And then it goes where he says. Don't talk about the moose anymore. He says i killed a man and he just see slowly looks at. It doesn't say anything but it's just looks up like most god. He's so brilliant. Was he nominated for this. yes he wanted. The golden globes do nah well ordinary. People want i'm assuming ordinary people want best picture. Some assuming it was somebody from ordinary people. I didn't look it up interesting but in in in eighty one he was nominated. He won golden globe the golden globe for best comedic actor but didn't win but gielgud one. Yeah and the song one The arthur theme one right and screenplay was nominated didn't didn't win either. I'm assuming ordinary people want that as well. Yeah that i mean. there's Is soon as those opening notes. It with the the low. Orion orion orion logo. It's like that does something to my psyche. You're in from my being eleven years old movie a thousand times. Yep and you know. I don't think my parents they were pretty guarded about what i watch but I think just got away with this one. Yeah well because it was. Pg no that was probably like bugs bunny. They didn't know they thought. Oh it's fine in sub you know these subtle jokes. Were being being fed to you but it was a love story. You know it was a really sweet movie. It wasn't it wasn't too tawdry. I mean it was nineteen eighty-one so like alcoholism wasn't the kind of you didn't think about it in the same way. Then you not late for laughs and even at the end he says. I'm going to try. I promise i'll try to stay. Yeah he doesn't say. I'm not going to drink anymore. There's no there's no and you realize when the grandmother says no there's never been a boku has been a working class back right. She says your your your son will be president or senator. you realize they. He's all they've got. Yeah there's nobody else right. So the the line ins with him. And i was thinking. Also speaking of the arthur remake. I was thinking about the sequel arthur on the rocks. I did see that. But i don't remember much. Problem is his arc is so closed. It's over right so he starts off as a child ends as an adult. He even says grown up right and so you. There's nowhere to go. Yeah yeah it's not like a superhero. Where then you just send are thrown into venture knows a complete so tried to reset and so then you just ended up going through the same. Even the plot. I don't i don't remember was married in drunk and having to try to i can't remember what the the actual plot was but that was arc of his character just reset. And you saw this like. Why am i watching this again. You know that was the problem in buildings in it but it's just such a perfect character arc of a guy who's growing up a kid who's growing up. That's why we all loved it at our ages. Yeah yeah it's interesting. Any also has. That moment was susan when he gets engaged. A couple of i mean that's a pretty pivotal scene He's being forced to do this. He does it anyway. He says this is who i am. And basically like this is who you're marrying you know that. And then the second he pops the question and she says yes he wants to leave. Yeah he wants to go home. He feel sick. He wants to go pass out basically. Yeah and the amazing thing about that scene. She orders food and he's just got a silver tray with a full glass of scotch and he's that move occasionally in restaurant. Yes on an empty plate. Two lines i sometimes say generally when i'm in vegas one is engine room with god. It's great and the second one is. I'm going to need one. My doctors advised me and you tend to these tendencies in our. Oh man. I've done the engine room thing is you rarely see an actual telephone these days so occasionally if i actually the place where i have a telephone i'll pick it up and go engine room with.

"Yeah the casting of anneli. You mentioned earlier I remember as a kid thinking. I was eleven in admitted. Now that sounds terrible. But i just remember as a kid thinking like. She's not very good looking like she's not who is that. Yeah like i didn't know who she was and now I didn't know any of her background. Or the judy garland stuff and i just remember thinking like why. Didn't they catch some bombshell. Is that's what you're used to seeing and as an eleven year old. That's certainly what you wanna see ya. But from the moment she steps on that screen they just their chemistry there like Some old like married comedy couple. That's been doing it for a hundred years. They're so good together. And what's funny about lies on that first scene in the Bergdorfs is you can tell. She's in a totally different movie. Yeah she came with her whole wardrobe hair. Spurring that crazy redhead had cost the whole outfit. And it's steps on screen like i'm in. I'm give a fuck. I don't care what everybody else is stressed out. I'm in the movie in this out at big yellow coat yellow code red hat but and and she's holding a ferrari bag. Yeah so it's like. She's she's she's you know and that's also what helped because it wasn't just i thought i think you know it's apocryphal. Because everybody says everybody was in every movie right now. But i do. I did do some research. And they did want debra winger and she couldn't get her head around it would have been great amazing cast in your head credible. Yes she's really great and they work so well together That scene and it. It's it's sorta hard when you do a comedy like this to not just like say your favorite lines. So just cherry picked a few there but That scene has a couple of my favorites. Was when he's talking about the perfect crime and you know you know. Some girls were ties so it's not a perfect time. It's a good crime. And then gielgud goes if she moded that i would be the perfect exactly. He you know i. I read to research for this little. I did do some reading about it. He he would literally turn allies and goes. I am being funny like what's happening. Everybody was like just keep going. Don't try he was so good. Oh 'cause his eyes he'll something casually he all he had so many good ones and then you get to that crazy. Third act turn. Yes one of my favorite third acts movie ever and just that moment where he says. I'm scared yes oh yeah yeah and you just everything just. And he's not scared for him. He scare for arthur. Yes because as being okay with dying yes. Yeah it occurred to me last night how i never really noticed that arthur has learned so much from him. Arthur deals with his pain through jokes because hobson does. Yeah and hobson. He's he's dealing with his death. Yes through making humor out of yeah and then just that turn were though he he. Everybody says you look like shit yeah. He says he never seen me sober. Yeah it's just so incredible and there's two to read that scene where he's giving the toys to hopson one is that he's just a kid right. The other doesn't know what to do the other. He's trying to distract hobson dying. And you know what the train is. Obviously from his Just that's their thing. But i just love it. Gives them the hat and he goes fi. Start to die. Take this off me. It's not the way. I wanted to be remembered but you can see him just playing here. Just don't feel bad like he doesn't know how to deal with it so he's just trying to distract him from this moment of dying. Yeah and i think that stuff really works because you see the behind the scenes stuff that hobson doesn't see which is him in the hallway ordering the special meals and he doesn't want his last meal to be jello and he he stepped up. You know the movie really needed that. I mean it's one of my favorite third x. To arthur only uses money to try to help other people or make people happy. It makes you happy. Yeah and there's a really critical moment in the movie where he gives her the hundred thousand dollar check and she rips it up and then i had tries which is one of the best acting moments you just hear. Oh for the other room because that is really thank kind of the crux of the whole thing of like money doesn't make you happy right but also has one of the greatest endings of doesn't i took the money. I'm not crazy right but it's also about money can't buy you happiness. You have to find love. You have to find those people that have and take care of and is the. It is hard to be alone. I it's it's it's a. It's a really fascinating movie because i think when most people i think of it They do think of like all those great line. Yucca thought i was just doing great with you. Yeah you think of all those just really hilarious lines but under the joke down is insane. It's just crazy. I don't know how you write a movie. This densely packed with jokes. Either either and they'll have so much heart in. Yeah drama and i kept looking at like if there was some improv stuff to like. I was like going while i wonder. How much dudley improv i. read the script. Well you can. The problem is i mean not the problem. The amazing thing is you see when you over that may was an improv and then it ties in later so improper unless they wrote it down and say oh. We're going to pay like these things. Were so carefully plotted. Yeah you know. And there's so many like little tangents like just the scene with the guy who sells them flowers. You you need five. Yeah no and him do earn the difference you feel in love and then he says. Buy flowers for that girl you saw on the bus. Yeah like he remembers these things and says to people Do this for your wife right as yeah and then and then later on you know and and just the fun of i by ten in green. I don't wear sweaters anywhere sweaters. The whole movie. Yes saying that just to kind of appease the person. He's he's buying it from all these little tiny things that are layered in. Yeah that are pulled through so elegantly. Yeah and i gotta believe. It came from sitcom writing where he just put it all in there and just insanely because dudley so talented. They all words. Yeah because nine times out of ten you know like you go back and you look at the judge movies you know. He's throwing to not all working so you pull them out agree. It definitely was..

This happened where you just like. One time i was. This is not a thirteen until the thirteenth cook. But one time. I was on a plane. And they said oh. It's going to be this movie with. The movie is going to be this movie. It's comedy like cafe scene. It's i put my headphones on my glasses when they used to have projected the main screen yet and his. This dude next to me was laughing so hard sixty old man and i'm like in my head going smooth. He's not. I know that movies. Not that fucking funny right like what the hell is this. He's being annoying easy mocking the movie. This guy. I want to kill this. And i took my things off and it was mall cop and i went. I love this guy. Enjoy this weird tenuous thing. Ego was like so fragile. Right thirty nine thirty is this is. It's a little bit of a personal story so My my wife and i lost a baby at birth. God which is why left. Settlements travel so much. We told you. I told you. I'd lie about love that movie because and One of the things. Was you know as we going through this. We were in the hospital for a couple of days and it happened to be new year's day and comedy does this thing on new year's day where they put these movies up Comedies and for briefly like our so my wife would be laughing. Both kind of forget where we're at and it's very much about like sullivan's travels when guys are in jail watching the three stooges and so i just love to make comedies. I and i. And i don't feel bad about making comedies. I i can give people joy it. It's very helpful. So my daughter molly thirteen. She was being born and we had higher doctor. And it's very emotional and scared shitless. Yeah and i'm just you know crying and just hope praying everything's gonna be okay and this nurse leans and goes. I have to say thirteen going on thirty. My favorite movie is like a sweet. Okay twenty better than you hating it. Yeah that was a really good movie. Has one of my favorite music use of any movie. 'cause i'm billy joel in yeah that vienna q- it's so great. Yeah i mean identified with that kid. Some i think the younger version sure. Yeah i mean that you know. I love the. That's why isn't a. I have a few. I've i've i've the woman that i've worked with on a few movies named gina matthews. We did that movie. Thirteen thirty we did what women want. Together we did isn't romantic together. We did this other movie. Call my life together. And so i i love making those movies and it's funny and i was thinking about this the other day i have a son who's twenty And you know when i when he was growing up i was making triple x. Lack dowd and dude movies action movies and and my daughter now like even this movie and thursday night thirty and and isn't it romantic. I always try to sneak in a little lesson in there You know about the film itself. Yeah just the theme of it like. Isn't it romantic really is ultimately about loving yourself and not being caught up in the romantic comedy tropes and and and this movie. I'm making right now senior years that way too. It's like you don't need anybody to be successful. You just have to kind of do it yourself and pull yourself up by the bootstraps and and work. Hard and thirty nine thirty was the same thing it was like. Don't try to go for popularity. Don't try to go for the things that are vacuous and shallow. Be a real person. Now i tell my daughter. All the time like specially for for for teenage girls. You don't need everybody to like right if you have to one or two really good friends. Fine because chances are the only people that are going to be in your life. Later on in life thirty brands might as well pack of people. Yeah so that's always tried to sneak a little aspirin in the applesauce that way. You're good guy producer. I'm trying now. I yeah i i just again like i watch. It's it's it's an interesting thing. I it must be like us gonna be awful and you may want to cut it out but it must be like being a good cop like if you see like their shitty cops out there. You're a good person who wants to do right by your community and just seeing your whole your whole profession just being. Yeah shit on. That's what i feel like about being a movie producer. Because like if you google movie producer right now. Nothing good is going up i. I'm sure for a while you have to go through the google search ron. I just don't yeah again. All my friends these guys that are that i interviewed every person and every man and woman that i interviewed is a good person. Yeah and and they're making ninety eight percent of the shit that's out there. Yeah that's good to know. I'm glad you're putting that message out there to Very cool again. The producers guy. Todd garner in hollywood's elite If you love movies i mean. It's getting a peek behind. The curtain is so fun for me. I know a lot of fun for our listeners. so I appreciate you talking about that stuff. Yeah i mean we. I talked to jeff probst about catering for about forty five minutes if you really want to get in the weeds. Thanks big deal. Why think about how those people for thirty nine days on the island so if you want to get into the weeds about producing. I'll josh actually on when he had his. Tv show his talk show for a little while we were on the probe show. Yeah it was one of like two or three. Sure talk shows that we ever did also wanted two or three episodes. He did wife. Lisa to yeah he he's he's the best. He's a really good friend of mine. He's probably i think he's the best host in the last twenty years. We it's funny. We got more ops like that earlier in our career. We don't get any asks anymore real anything and maybe it's just because podcasting itself is so huge now. We're just in the mix of a gazillion other people but yeah we used to talk shows and all this stuff and it's so funny too it's like especially in the world of podcasting podcasting becomes a world where you.

Down anger management Thirteen going on thirty one of my all time guilty pleasure. Oh great. I have loved that money story about. That can't wait here a triple x. The new mortal kombat movie many many many more films all very big studio films and your Think only my second producer had merrill poster in which was lot fun and I'd love to talk a little. Bit about producing. Yeah because i think they're such in by the way you're you're very sneaky because i didn't know you had a podcast. You didn't even tell me till i found it yesterday. called the producers guy. Todd garner in hollywood's elite which is great. I listen to you the kassian l. How do you say it. Always always Episode this morning and the walter hill episode. Yes this is just fantastic. Oh his voice is just incredible. How man and. I was glad to hear you like gushing and i was like all right. I don't feel bad. Because when i had people on here i love i am very sycophantic on me too and i'm just like you're the best and everything like breaks all the rules of quote unquote interviewing exactly. But you were all over walter hilo. Yeah i loved it. Yeah i gush over. I mean. I started it because this very question. Like what is the producer do. Yeah and obviously. The news is not great for producers really. Yeah and that was kind of one of the reasons behind it right. Yeah i mean there was. There was numerous reasons that was one is to clear. up misconceptions. About what producers do right that real producers that you know not the twenty five year old guys that are bars passing out right cards. Because that's one side of it and then harvey weinstein's clearly the other side of it. Yeah it's the working producers that make a make a living and and really love what they do in our onset and do the work and then and then weirdly here in atlanta. I was shooting a movie and Numerous who has done all the fast and furious is and and My other friend marty. Bowen who has done A ton of movies including the twilight series We were all sitting around having a beer and and and you know i heard complaining like oh man. The businesses over like we're screwed were dinosaurs. And i realized i had four movies. Shooting mardi had five and numerous like has was doing Passengers with chris pratt and ray lawrence as well as having the fast rolling guys. If if we're we're putting that rhetoric out there that the businesses over what chance does any students have because you know most of the entertainment press dines in and and you know doomsaying because there's so much change right now in the business in terms of the way the the businesses so rapidly changing in terms of its it's all content now in quotes and right and where yeah and and i think that just scares the shit out of people. Don't understand it but then you really look at the pure numbers of it when you know we're netflix. Suspending a billion dollars in writing content. And that was that. Was you know the big shark in the water. Everybody was terrified. That was going to end the movie. Business and the theatrical going experience is over and then the pandemic it's and i just really wanted to counteract that in the way you're saying the sycophantic gushing. Yeah i really am in a positive person about the business. Had been doing this for thirty years and i you know i don't have a paycheck. I only get paid if a movie gets made right. I should probably be the most fearful negative person right out there. And i just couldn't do it because i remember being a young person coming up wanting to be in the business in reading and studying the business and hearing the same doom bullshit then and so as a history of the movie business and really reading a ton and ton of history about it. You just realize it's the same stuff you know when when television started right movie businesses over in fact we've been going back sound it's over. No one wants to hear actors. Talk from color color is to. It's too real that's it. Yes over television for sure. It's going to kill the end. It and not only did it. Not kill the movie business. You could actually promote your movies on the television and sell them to television. Yeah and then. Vhs oh boy that's it right you just going to record an in dvd. Oh god i rating it. Looks as good as the movie al pirating. dvd there. That's it and it just never happens. It's just like the little engine. That could so i just wanted to say to anybody who is interested in the movie business and for sure young people that it's not just go do it all your dream. I don't wanna talk anybody out of their dream in it. It's a hard business for sure But i just wanted to always been hard. Yeah and i wanna encourage people. And i can do it. Anybody can what was your start like. You talked about Reading about the business and wanting to get into it what what were you doing. I started in theater in high school. Okay i originally wanted to be an architect. Okay and then. I got into a drafting class and i was like this. Sucks man this. It's just straight lines and protracted really nerdy people with me. And then my buddy said you gotta come. Try this improv class. In in in theater and it was just awesome. I could run around and be funny and stupid. Great looking girls in the of are much better than drafting right. And i just fell in love with it and so i at i kind of thought. Well maybe i'll be a director. I don't know maybe a be a stand up comedian. I don't know i'll figure this out. What year was this. I graduate my school. Eighty-three okay. I was in the san fernando valley and none of my entire families in the business and nobody knew anything about the in fact. My father still to this day will send me an article. A great article producing. He's and you know just doesn't still waiting for the other. You know my finally my. I have a degree in economics and film from occidental. College still waiting for that econ degree to kick in. Oh cool. I lived in eager. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah and so Then i then. I thought well may be a producer but i didn't know anything about producing so you you know you go and you see movies and you read the books and special effects and i made some student films in high school and then i talk to know college. We didn't have any film classes at all. But i got an internship back in the day when the industrial video was right huge. Yeah they were spending so much money on. 'cause was like this new thing where you could like teach people through video right so i got a job at pacific bell As an intern in their in their in their You know instructional video department. And and then. I learned how to edit and so i really became an editor i saw. I edited rieti. Like we're at one inch okay. And it was ampex. An ampex had a system that was called the ampex a system when just basically meant ampex computerized editing right which is really precursor to All of the new right software based systems yeah and so not that many old-timers wanted to learn it back in the day was i'll see a maximum had thousands of buttons that you know like you know dissolve right cut. This was like you had to use words like a computer. Yeah and so i i. I worked for playboy. I worked for did did cut music videos. I cut it worked for the olympics. So but and then..

"Garner cop a long time if I was still a cop I probably be mad at me I would look out for us but I am at a young man takes his grandmother across the U. S. to visit the country's most cherished land we walked across the band the landscape and the sand dunes and then she got down on the ground and I said what are you doing that I want I want to roll down it looks fine respect president trump zigzag for much of the week on major issues seeming to reverse course on gun background checks and tax cuts will also cancelling an upcoming visit with Denmark's president after the country said Greenland is not for sale the president also continued his attack on Democrats in Congress woman where she had to leave questioning the loyalty of the Jewish community if they choose to vote for the Democrats I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge for great disloyalty all this amid questions about the state of the economy ahead of the twenty twenty election spring down another week in Washington here's ABC news White House correspondent Karen Travers we had a talk of you know background checks the no payroll tax than no it was a lot of flipping on a lot of stuff this week from the White House wasn't it was I mean I think it was just mixed messages on a whole host of very critical policy issues and where we land at the end of the week is that the economy is still of the big topic here for the president is still the thing that he is tweeting the most about and that his aides feel that they have to address because there have been a lot of big red flags about a potential downturn in the economy the looming recession that at Qana missed an analyst or warning about you know it's not imminent chariots next year the year after that but it's enough to create some anxiety right now and the president has decided on a campaign of we will PR spin this we will talk about how great the economy is now an ins not wrong but he's also not acknowledging that there could be some dark clouds coming on the horizon and it's a you know a gamble but they're looking at this from the political standpoint the president's heading into the election season the economy is the one bright spot for him in public polling and any dings on that right now could jeopardize his reelection chances economic adviser Larry Kudlow said just on Thursday that to if there was going to be a tax cut yeah probably come during the campaign it's unusual for it to be that quite that you know if they have their eye on the political calendar but for them to say and here is the date that we have circled and this is when we will do an economic stimulus in order to help the economy would also help people that we would like to vote for us it's pretty striking to see them be so candid I think what was also interesting from Kudlow is that you know he says they're they're looking at what they're calling tax cuts two point oh tax cuts for the middle class is for small businesses for blue collar workers but they're also trying to to straddle a very tricky line here by saying that we don't need to do this right now we can wait until next year we don't need a short term stimulus plan for the economy because the economy is so strong but if we were to consider something here's what we would do so they're trying to say we were thinking about things for the potential downturn that we don't think it's happening but in case it does don't worry we got you covered when it comes to the background checks for guns I mean the president.
