"What can I do for you? Good morning, sir. So regarding the seemingly conflicting results on the poll question, the news click. Yeah, Go ahead. Go ahead. The news. Click. Yeah, Follow up, CDC. Oh, yes. Should people have to wear masks? Oh, no. Um, so my background as I'm, a psych professor at Georgetown University, it's been proven that how Paul questions are where they will influence the results. I'm not saying people do that on purpose. But the CDC question sounds like should we follow common sense and trust the scientists? Oh, sure. You should be aware Math late. Do I want my freedoms and friendship on? No. So so it's a way that's word. It can be really tricky. Even people are just trying to get at the truth will wind up influencing the results sometimes. I think it's really interesting observation. I hadn't thought about it. In those terms. It's muse both pretty clear neutral questions, but maybe they're not as neutral. As I thought, huh? You have to look at the results. Sometimes I figure out of its neutral. Here's another example. This is actually tested. Um, should librarians be allowed to keep certain books out of the collection? If they disagree with the content and people, you can probably guess what people said to that. Oh, now I'm going to get it wrong Should library And if they disagree with the content? Yeah, I guess so. Librarians have to make decisions. Well, most people said no. That sounds like censorship. Another question. Should, um Should people who write dangerous books have them place the library, So they kind of blow up a factory or an airport. So those books be allowed on what public library shelves? Oh, of course not. It's the same question order differently. Yeah, yeah, that's fascinating. So let's just go back to my to them, because first we said should, um, the first one was. Should the kids wear masks when they go back to school this year? I'm not wearing a mask. Now. We don't have to wear it in public spaces. So 84% of our people said no. The kids should not have to wear masks. Then we said, Should you follow CDC guidelines, which Categorically says you should wear masks if you're not vaccinated, and 1992% 97% said, Yes, we should follow the C D. C. Those are opposite each other, aren't they? Yes, but another difference is that one desk about kids? Yeah. Typically get much milder and you mentioned on your shoulder. One researchers showed that, um The risk of covid for kids. And, like nearly infant testimony. Yeah, right. Absolutely. Your regular listeners could have been thinking of that too. Yeah. Boy, I got up my game if we got smart people like you listening to WGN radio, Rob Thank you for the kind words King John, you have a good day. This is kind of interesting to live in here in Chicago, 847 texted in to say, John for her job. My wife deals with people in California for her job. My wife deals with people in California. Recently, they finished a call by telling her don't get shot. That's Chicago's image these days. I don't know if they said so sarcastically like, Ha ha ha! Or if they were sincerely concerned, but I was talking to my friend George Sand Lian. His wife. Uh, When was this? A Saturday? I guess Kelly and he comes to Chicago. Let's come into Chicago. He is Not coming to Chicago right now. It just sounds too dangerous to him. He has a new vehicle. And he said, I'm worried that my shiny new car is going to get carjacked. They're going to see a pretty car on the road. Hey, look at that. That's good. Let's set the wheels. Let's take that. And that's not gonna happen. There's a better chance will happen if you go to the place where Carjackings happen, But you won't be going to that place unless you get really lost. Well, you can tell him it only happens behind us. Why do you say that? Well, I remember a few months ago. I read that Hondas are either number one or number two Most carjacked cars. Yeah, but that may be another one of those statistical survey type things, because guess what? The number one car on the road is. Or more Hondas than anything else. Yeah, so the chances are high, So I'm not too worried because of my Tesla. Uh oh. There you go again with that imaginary Tesla of yours, Producer. Hey, Whoa, whoa. It is not a national. Whoa. It's parked outside my imaginary mansion. Well, but about that text message about Don't get shot in Chicago. It's like saying to someone who lives in California. Don't die in a fire. Yeah, watch out for the earthquakes. I mean, that's kind of I don't know. How do you receive that? That's yeah, That's insensitive. That's not passive aggressive, but that's not. That's not helpful, right? Yeah. Trust me. I know what's going on here and I now know you don't know what's going on here. So Shut up. That's what I have to say about that. By the way. I do recall that when Carjackings weren't the issue, but chop shops where that is, your car would get stolen and then sold for parts. And that's the thing I don't know if that still has, why that's why I think Hondas were condos were number one on that list as well. And you think Wait a minute, a Honda you can. Honda's a nice car, but it's not, uh Such a valuable or expensive car. You got to steal it and cut it up. But it was just common enough that people there was a secondary market for the parts. So I don't know that a Honda makes you necessarily more vulnerable. 9 56. This is W g. N. We'll talk to the bug girl.

"So beautifully. Outlined towards shattering the glass and tackling imposter syndrome yard. Thank you so much really. Enjoyed writing this article on especially in light of the election results and so for me. I learned that there was the first discussion of not the specific trim glass ceiling but really an impenetrable crystal ball that was described in eighteen thirty nine by french feminist george sand but really the term specifically glass ceiling emerged in nineteen seventy eight to describe patterns of discriminatory promotion minez. We know the term glass ceiling has been more. Broadly used really across areas with respect to leadership positions whether it's in business the political arena for the field of medicine. When for me. I think the last aj sessions. They actually had a specific talk focused on imposter syndrome and it was really interesting in in some ways. Validating to hear how many women at various points of training still continue to experience imposter syndrome. And how can tackle it. And i think particularly as we are going through our stages of training and when we become early career physicians on more advanced in our career. I think thinking about how we can continue to support a pipeline of women in medicine supporting medical students residents as well as even collaborating with other women fellows in our own program and really reflecting on the diversity of our teams the diversity of the writing groups on our manuscripts and just continuing to promote a community of women. And for me. I think things like twitter and social media have really helped me. Connect with other women in cardiology and medicine. More broadly to recognize their amazing accomplishment. Which i think has provided me with a lot of hope and excitement for things i may be able to do in my career and similarly you know i think trying to collaborate with other young women in cardiology across training programs informed teams of women that can continue to bring each other up and move forward. And so. I think that appreciate you giving me the chance to talk about this article. And it's definitely something that i'm passionate about in think about. So thank you again. Gosh celia i just love that incredibly powerful in just beautiful metaphor the thank you so much for sharing that and then i could not agree with you more dr louis just hearing that just made me think of we feel so fortunate to have you join us.

"Delia merits in for Alison Stewart on all of it until the NYC. The protagonist of the new novel, who is mild. Dixon is a familiar sort of person. Florence Darrow is her name. She's a young Florida transplant in New York City, working a junior job in publishing in the hopes that it'll put her on a path to one day, becoming a published novelist. In fact, the position is a dead end and the gap between Florence his dreams and her lived reality starts to cause some strain to say nothing of the burden of her mom's expectations. Quote Florence felt like she was running a Ponzi scheme. Vera, her mother, demanding an immediate return on her investment, and Florence paying her down as best she could in tiny installments of affection and apologies. Biding her time until she could scrounge up the capital she owed. Influences. Life takes an abrupt turn when she commits a fireable offense against her company and is in fact fired. And then she snags a new gig as an assistant to a best selling author. There's just one catch Florence, His new boss is working under a pen. A pen name Ma Dixon, and her real identity is a closely guarded secret in Florence accepts the job. Things quickly get weird. Who is Ma Dixon is the name of the novel or this story all takes place it was dreamed up by Alexandra Andrews. Alexander Andrews. Welcome to W. N. Y. C. Thank you so much. I'm so glad to be here. So what is it with writers and pseudonyms? I'm thinking of Elena Ferrante. Lemony Snicket. Robert Galbraith. George Sand. What made you want to explore this turf? Um, it was definitely Elena Ferrante that set off this fascination and I came up with the idea for the novel right at the height of sort of the Elena Ferrante fever. Um and I loved her books, but I couldn't totally understand the fascination with uncovering Who she really was. You know, I think they had a journalist like digging through these like payroll files. Toe, you know, try to unmask her. And I just found this refusal to let her be anonymous. When it doesn't you know, affect the readers life at all. Whether this woman is known or not, I just found that Um, dr and curiosity, very interesting. Uh huh. And from that seed the novel was born. Pretty much yeah, with a dash of Patricia Highsmith. S o. The book is full of twists. I'm going to rely on you to help me figure out what spoilers to avoid and which ones are forgivable, But let's start by getting to know the protagonist, Florence Darrow. What kind of a writer does she want to be? Who is she when she meets her new employer, Ma Dixon. I think she doesn't know who she is. And I think she doesn't know what kind of writer she wants to be. I think she's Very in love with the idea of being a writer, which is very romanticized, Um She's sort of she's of that age in her early twenties, when you're so informed, and you could go in so many different directions, and people have been telling her her whole life. You know, you can do anything just like we're all sort of Hold that, and she sort of bumping up against a wall and realizing That Maybe that's not quite true. Which, of course it isn't. There's certainly talented people held back by circumstances beyond their control all the time. Um And so she is just trying to figure out what type of person she wants to be. And she doesn't really have a model. She doesn't have a mentor. She she all she knows is she doesn't want to be like her mother, and she doesn't want to be like anywhere. Anyone from where she grew up, which is And a small town in Florida, right, And she's entered this kind of somewhat more rarefied Manhattan, Amillia and I feel like she's sort of attracted and repulsed by some of the people she meets there at the same time. Yes. Um, so then so enter Ma Dixon, the pseudonyms bestselling novelist. What's the name of her novel? Mississippi Fox truck Right, Mississippi Foxtrot and Mark Dixon first appears to us as a black square and a videoconference. Kind of like somebody who hasn't turned on the video stream for their zoom. When she's interviewed interviewing Florence for the job, But pretty soon these two women are locked in a very intense Professional relationship. Why is it so intense between them? Um I think it's So intense because they are both trying so hard to change their life, and they each think the other person can help. So there is a type of desperation there. A need for the other person to conform to certain expectations. Um You know, Florence, Florence finally finds in modern. Her real name is Helen. Um Grief. There's one sport that is acceptable. Yes, I'm allowing that, um He finds everything she wants to be. And and she she she learned from her, she started adopting her mannerisms for closing. Um, And there's just really, um And the there which I think is for a lot of women, important engine of ambition, You know, you need to see what you want in order to know what you want in some way. I sort of had the sense reading your book that on the surface for many women, Certainly heterosexual women. Men are what's interesting, but actually, when you scratch that surface, it's women who are interesting to women. It's other women. There's a scene is this section early on where Florence hooks up with more senior person at the publishing house, where she's working at the time? Um, And she gets kind of bored of him quickly and becomes totally obsessed with his wife and watching her instagram feed and her perfect Children and her life is that sort of a phenomenon that you've observed observed in life. I think so. You know this? I'm not gonna speak in broad terms, So I'm sure I'll step on sometimes here. But I think there is some truth to the fact that women learn very early on these very complex ways of relating to each other. It doesn't The lie. I'm sort of blunt force or aggression. It's it's much more passive and sort of tangled in a lot of it involved. Language, which is very interesting to me is the writer on guy think the way that women express. Um ambition and the ruthlessness is, um It's Zaveri interesting and complex. What do you mean, when you say a lot of it and involves language? Um You know, I just think back to being The teenager or in my young twenties, when you're sort of Learning how to express likes and dislikes. Particularly relating to other people, and there's a way you can, you know, deliver like a cunning insult while being able to step back from that very quickly. I think there's a sophisticated way that we learned how to Don't think Most women are are used to saying exactly what they want or exactly how they feel. Or maybe not Most women. I shouldn't be. Painting with such a broad brush, but myself, at least in the way I was brought up. It was Things were always coming out a little bit sideways, right? And it's that in directness that actually kind of makes things really interesting. I've seen both. I've seen Florence, the main character and Ma Dixon or Helen, the writer who she works for. I've seen them both described as anti heroines. Do you think of them that way?.

"Deeper and your relationship with God. It's time for more scarlet on Stone radio. Now, here's your host, Pastor Craig on the answer. San Diego. Welcome back to scholar on stone radio. I'm your host, Pastor Craig Berkson. We ended our last segment, talking about the background of the preludes of Frederic Chopin. But in order to do so, we have to introduce an important person and Chopin's life that was connected with the preludes. And that person was the author. Our Oh, dude of all or as she was professionally known. George Sand. Ended her last second by telling our audience about a little get together, which was organized by Frans List and Marie de Ghoul, in which George son would be introduced to Chopin. So without further delay, let me continue to tell the story. As already stated. George son wanted to meet Chopin. She was drawn to his music and was very interested in getting to know him. Chopin also heard of George Sand, and from what we know he had no interest in her, especially knowing that reputation that preceded her now remember the way they described or sand in. The last segment was that she was an UN conservative, liberal, Amoral feminists who hated religion and marriage and was a proto Marxist and don't forget. She smoked cigars and war men's clothing. Now that doesn't I don't think con dropped the personification of beauty. Never the ladies who are in our audience. You know that femininity is not itself. Feminism, In other words, to be feminine doesn't mean that you are a feminist. To have nothing in common As a matter of fact, modern social feminism is an attack on historic and global cultural femininity. Knows, I said these feminist traits of George Song I don't think would conjure up the personification of beauty, and it appears that Chopin felt the same. You see Chopin already heard of George Sands reputation that she'd been married and divorced. He had heard of her many and sordid liaisons, her free love spirit. And when he finally met her for the first time, it didn't change his first impressions based on her reputation, he said to a friend after their initial meeting at Hotel Day, Frantz quote. Is that really a woman? I seriously doubt it, Unquote soon after he wrote to his family in Poland, saying about George Song, quote something about her repels me, unquote. But that didn't stop Countess Marie to ghoul from playing matchmaker between the both of them. She persisted in through her advice, she told George Santo look more feminine take off the men's apparel. And where God forbid address well, George son did is made to gold told her to do endured. Song also just happened to add to her dress that colors of the Polish flag, which, if you don't know, or white and red It was at this second meeting that show Pence guard was let down and the two events became, believe it or not an item. Now it came to be understood that George Son's presence and show pens life at this particular time had an effect on his musical output, especially where he composes works during their nine year relationship. Yes, they were together. For nine years, but it didn't take a brilliant observer to recognize that Chopin and George Sand a k A. R O dude of all could never be married or have the relationship last a lifetime. You see, you couldn't find two people as different as or a dude of all and Chopin. They were worlds apart. On the one hand, you had the conservative religious manifested by Frederic Chopin himself, and on the other hand, you had an aim World feminist as expressed in the life and attitude of George Sand. The fact that the a lesson at all for any amount of time was you could say a miracle now. What was the connection between this relationship between Chopin adored son on the Prelude said he wrote That is a great question and let me take a moment to explain. First we have to fast forward from 18 36. The year that Chopin met George saw on to the fall of 18 38 2 years into their relationship. The story of the composition of the Preludes begins in the fall of this particular year exactly 182 years ago when Chopin traveled to the island of my your car, which is south of France, off the coast of Spain. You see, Chopin was chronically sick in his adult life, And it was believed that the southern tropical environment would be good for his health. And was George Song, who suggested that this change of scenery and atmosphere would be good for him and a much needed change from a cold weather of Paris. And so he went, But not alone. He went with George Shaun and her two Children. Maurice and Salah Zhao. He left Paris with his luggage sketches of beginnings of pieces, some of which would be the prelude. He also left with the promise that a piano would be shipped along with him to my orca, and, of course he had at his side, a copy of Bach's well tempered club here. Its influence, of course, has already been discussed in the previous episodes. Now. He also was given in advance from his publishers for the preludes and other works that he hoped to complete while abroad. In my orca. So Chopin, George Sand and her two Children, Marie, since a longe R. Arrived at the capital of my Gorka in November of 18 38, which was the city of Palma. At first, their state, the capital by orca seemed to be coming up roses. When Chopin arrived in Palma, he wrote to his friend, Julian Fontana in November of 18 38 and described his new surroundings, quote. I am in Palma among the poems, Cedars cacti, I olives, pomegranates, etcetera. Skylight. Turquoise A C like Lappas lazuli mountains like emerald air like heaven, sun all day and hot, everyone in summer clothes at night guitars and singing for hours. Huge balconies with great Bynes overhead Morrish walls Everything looks towards Africa as the town does, In short, a glorious life. You shall soon receive the prelude, so I shall probably lodged in a wonderful monastery. The most beautiful crusaders church ruined mosques, aged trees, 1000 year old olives. I'm coming to life a little. I am near toe. What is most beautiful I am better unquote. However, Chopin, George Sand and her Children had to leave the capital due to Chopin sickness and had to head for an abandoned.

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been and and you look around you go. Wow, World we're above 50% here. That's good above 50%. Yeah, I've seen a few really know. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, This room looks like it's more than 50%. With that. I'm fine with that. You know what I mean? Well, I mean, I'm certainly experienced that now. Now patios, for example, they can go. About 50% rise there outside and like match, For example, there are about 50% on the patty. I would have adventure to say that the majority of people do sit out on the patio there, but Ah, there is we were talking about yesterday when we were talking about what the representative from the Texas Restaurant Association yesterday. There's really no justification for these restaurants only being able to operate it. No T percent That just is not. And that goes for any the only issue I have again or those bars that that couldn't keep their act together. And of course, we've got to put that on. A lot of the folks that went, couldn't keep their act together and keep in mind it restaurants the only dangerous place. He's in that lobby when you're waiting for a table because that's the only place you have to wear it. But the target and the majority of restaurants and I go to aren't letting you wait in the lobby that you're having to white out there, Which is fine. What's just fine. It's fine. I mean, that's my point. You You don't have to wear a mask. When you leave your house to get in your car drive to the restaurant. You don't even have to wear it when you get out of your car and walking to the door, But once you go in the door, you've got to put it on. Then once you get to your table, you could take it off. Yeah, those lobbies those of the most dangerous places again. I guess so. You have some good business news this morning in the state of Texas for the month of July. Sales tax rebounded big time state comptroller's office reports that sales tax revenues had been down for the previous two months. But July's monthly report shows a 4.3% increase from July of last year. Part of that is to do an increase in online sales and the fact that more online retail outlets were required to collect sales taxes. They also note that the July receipts actually reflect taxes collected by businesses in June, which is when many businesses across the state started reopening after being shut down because of covert 19 Steven Pickering, TIAs and news some good news there. I mean, I mean, that tells you that we're ready to spring back. Once the all clear has given. I think we're going to spring back very, very quickly and personally, as Faras Online goes, I mean, I've I'm certainly shopping online. More never have not a ton, but but certainly more never have sure, And I think people are think people sighted more money online. I think you're going to see a total transformation of our grocery stores. I think so, too. I got we did curbside pickup at H E. B and Leander last night. I picked it up last night. Yesterday afternoon picked it up about 3 30 I bet they had 30. Maybe more than 30 cars already queued up to pick up the groceries. It was there was a line of cars.

A little bit longer. Well, the pandemic lock down workday is on average, 48.5 minutes longer than usual that, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, Yeah, It's also has about 13% more meetings, one point form or daily emails. This, according to research, which looked at 3.1 million people in 16 big metropolitan areas of North America, Europe and the Middle East, So it's a pretty vast study here. VPN data has also pointed to odd work hours, according to Bloomberg News, attributing to the changes to the blurred boundaries between work and home and childcare demands. It's pretty interesting. Yeah, we're working longer. As we're working remotely. Well, you've been working remotely for months. Now I work remotely only for two weeks when I got home from Europe, and so I will say For those two weeks out, I was at home. I was saying my work day was longer, but that was simply because it took me longer to get things done from home. It took me longer to record commercials called producers and make sure they've got this body and things like that things that here if I do, I'm here. I can do a much more quickly, so it wasn't for me. It wasn't that I wanted to work. I found that I was more driven to work longer. It's that it just took me longer to get it done from you were less productive at home. Well, maybe I wasa ce faras use of time. I get things done more quickly here, So it just depends on what you do, Of course. Yeah, I think. Well, I think these numbers indicate that people enjoy working from home better than working in the office. Well, some do some doing this summit drives amount of their ever loving mind..

We were talking about her. Whole having a very supportive male partner. Who was the person that just like made sure that she had everything she needed? I was like what if we had t shirts that said from the bread maker to the breadwinner but they depicted that scenario. And then I was like nobody's going to visually know what that is and they're gonNA think that anybody that wears that shirt like they're not going to get the joke right it's it's a little tricky to convey visually. Yea I it. It was sort of also an interesting Thing in my head as we were discussing this long drag out of the equal rights amendment. It's a good reminder having just come off as your Saundh episode you know France also for example had their weird law on the books that women couldn't wear pants until less than a decade ago so like we are not the only country who has struggled with right legislation around sex inequality as I was doing the research for this. I was trying to figure out exactly what happened in nineteen twenty-three because everything says the same thing that it was introduced in Congress in nineteen twenty three and then it just sort of stops like there's there's no further conversation. What happened next so what I was trying to do was look through old newspaper reporting to see if I could get a sense of what we're talking about. After this was introduced in Congress and one of the results I got was a New York. Times article that was about a very similar amendment that had been introduced in France at about the same time and had a similar discussion about People wanting to add in exemptions related to women being drafted for the military or laws to protect women that were already on the books and things like that and I was like. Oh this is so interesting maybe I will have some time to like dig into night did not have time to look further further into that One of the arguments about their arguments that I did not get into in the episode because it did not seem totally relevant their various arguments that people make their like. Do we even need this now because we have other legislation that is supposed to guarantee some kind of equality whether that legislation is respected as a whole other question but like people if there's all these laws on the books now one of the points that was made with a lot of people think that the constitution already says that we have equal rights regardless of sex and like don't realize that that's not actually part of the constitutions. There was sort of a question of do. We even need this when they're all these other laws and people think that it's already the law and the counter. Argument was like a lot of other nations that we compare ourselves to on the world. Stage have a constitutional or some other foundational guarantee of equal rights regardless of sex and the United States doesn't and that's sets us apart because there's like a whole huge conversational thread about all of that. I had certainly known that this had been going on for a century. But it wasn't until I got your outline that I had seen the statistic that this amendment has been ten percent of the introduced. Am I told you while we in a break in recording? Like to me to my like sort of checklist oriented mind. I would just want to get that thing handled so you can get that other stuff like it. Seems like such a huge time suck when they're certainly other things also to be discussed right But I understand that there have been passionate voices Debate so IT'S A. It's a little bit hard to wrap my head around because it seems so obvious to me. Yeah but I know that's not everyone's position yesh surely. I learned this in that class that I was talking about but I have forgotten. Just how overwhelming the votes in Congress in favor of the amendment and just how quickly the ratification process was going and then like it got to that point of five states needed or three states needed left to go monty python moment of three versus five just but it like Gosh. This movement of three states left to go into stopped. It didn't stop by itself obviously. There's the whole backlash that we talked about. That was responsible for the stopping but anyway I also thought it was important to note that like fish didn't do it all by herself. There were other people in organizations campaigning. Also but she was definitely the most visible part of it. Yeah that part is is hard for me because I get angry. I told us we were recording. I felt like Mr Potato Head and my wife had backed my angry is it's it's tricky because as again to me. It seems so obvious with the right thing to do is there? I understand that people will have different points of view but like it is so obvious to me that that's the right thing to do based on my life experience that it is Infuriating Yeah Yeah He. Ah So our second episode. This week was about Paul cuffy which was actually researched and written before the the Equal Rights Amendment one but we shuffled the order around since the equal rights amendment seemed particularly timely And that made it. It's a strange little time work when I was actually recording them. Somehow I was like. When did we talk about this? I don't remember That happens to me all the time because sometimes we're working coupled three weeks ahead if we're in a good place and then also because we do so many episodes. I mean if you consider each of us on average where each researching and writing and episode week yet. Fifty two weeks a year. Yep If you ask me for weeks from now well. We talked about that. I researched I will have probably only vague outlines and shapes ready and available for me to converse upon. Yeah we've also been in a place recently where we normally episode we normally record episodes a week in the studio for various reasons. We have had sort of a rolling third episode. That like we haven't had time to get to the third episode in our studio session so that one gets bumped to the next week so Paul Cuffy was simultaneously. One of the like third episodes that got bumped to the next week and then got swapped with the equal rights amendment This morning I had to really refresh my memory. One of the things that we did not get into in that episode that I did learn about when I was researching it and found really interesting Is that because of the indigenous involvement in the whaling industry in the centuries that we were talking about especially the like walk involvement in wailing there are indigenous people and communities around the world who can trace their ancestry back to tribes and nations living in New England including New Zealand in particular as one place where either wailers got there and said you know. I'm done wailing. Think I live here now. Or maybe the captain of their ship was like you're done wailing and this is where you live now either way. There are threads of people on the Internet who were kind of tracing their ancestry back and discovering that they have roots in the community or Another tribe from the northeastern United States which I found to be interesting but in a in a less I just more horrifying note There are also indigenous communities in the Caribbean who trace their ancestry. Back to New England. That are more related to the thing that we talked about or mentioned very briefly in passing which was people being enslaved after King. Philip's war and I'm working on King. Philip's war episode. Because I felt like that was a lot to drop in there without much explanation. Yeah it's it is fascinating because here's where it's really fascinating to me. I think from the perspective of someone who lives in the US. Not In new England we tend to think of New England is a little enclave. Like it's got it's own unique personality and it doesn't seem like a thing that would have tendrils all over the world. Yeah so it's kind of a cool thing to realize like it is not always cool how those people landed in various other places sure but it does make very clear really in some ways have tiny. The Globe is yet yet. I will say having lived in the South and New England That New England does feel more insular to me in some ways like the states are all a lot smaller When I was living in North Carolina or Georgia I did not typically just go drive to another state for some reason because the that would take deadly two hours from the most of the places that I lived Not so much. The case a lot of New England And often when I am looking at the biography of somebody who lived in New England during the colonial period. It feels like everyone was related to everyone else because it is like such a smaller geographical area in so anymore interconnections among people. So yeah I I am. A little surprised isn't isn't quite the right word but having learned about more about puffy in about how much he did in his life and how influential he was in this part of New England. It it I wish he were better than yes. His his story is when I didn't know at all me neither and I I love it. Yeah I know that whaling is a very contentious issue Fr- especially involving commercial whaling and animal rights. And all that If you have been like if you live in the New England area and you have been thinking about going to someplace like the new Bedford Whaling Museum. I didn't really know what to expect when I went to that museum because I was there to learn about puffy and there is a lot about like wailing as a practice at that museum. But there's also a lot about At least in terms of the exhibits. That were there when I was there. There's a lot about the indigenous peoples who have wailing as part of their indigenous history and culture and what that has meant for those cultures. There's a lot about whale conservation and And a lot about Wales General..

"At bookworm. Banquet dot com and just put the word T in the subject line. Don't even have to write anything. How easy is that? Come on will Email your coupon to you. Bits about their lives and their work. It's worth. Today's book worm fact is about pseudonyms. I don't know how many of our audience are where the lot of our famous female authors of the eighteenth and nineteenth century had to write under pseudonyms. In fact, this is a concept that has actually played into today's authorship as well. So part of the reason that some of these authors that are pretty famous, you know, the Muslim authors when they initially published their books had to actually publish under male pseudonyms, or they're writing wouldn't number one be published or it wouldn't be read because it was actually published by female or it would just simply not be taken seriously. So a lot of very famous authors initially published their works under male pseudonyms to the point that even publishers did note that they were females writing the books. They would just Mellon there manuscripts under a male name. And the publisher would have no idea that was actually a female. So so how did the transaction work back ended? They just pay him cash or something like they didn't have to write a check. I was just all through the mail, and they just sent the money back and forth. You know, you didn't have DA's. So you couldn't like, okay, I'm gonna write this checkout to Jack, whoever, you know. And it's actually Jane Smith, you know, exactly interesting. I wanna start with probably the most famous of the pseudonyms was actually the Bronte sisters the Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily in an Bronte known for their very famous works. Jane, Eyre, weathering heights and Agnes grey. They wrote under the surname bell with Charlotte going by the name Kerr bell her Emily going by the name, Ellis bell and going by the name, Anton bell. And so all three of them wrote under the same surname, but they use different first names, but all coinciding with their actual first letter of their actual names. And so they did that for a long time before they actually felt that the writing could be accepted under their female names. The next author is actually very famous you actually know her as Lewis may Alcott writer of Little Women. But did you read Little Women long long time ago? So the main character Joe was known for writing very fanciful gothic romances well in actuality Lewis male caught also wrote gothic romances, and she wrote them under the male student A m Bernard, and they were actually discovered in the nineteen forties by two librarian women who were rare book dealers, and they found her writings under amber Nardin able to prove it was Lisa mail, and she'd been writing all that time will not in the nineteen forties. But back in the day under that Nelson, and nobody knew until the nineteen forties. It was actually her. So another woman was for you move on. I just want to toss in a quick plug for Victoria Lynn's forgotten treasures series because she just did one on Louisa may Alcott in his ton of. So of them haven't read yet. So if you wanna learn more about her definitely check that others league in the show notes to that as well. Because that's such a fascinating part of the blog next one. I totally butcher. This name grew her pending was so much easier. She wrote under the name, George sand. How easy is that? But her actual given name was MNT. Lynn Lucille Aurora. Do pine. Okay.
