"About a biography of Henrietta Mears, The mother of modern evangelicalism is the title. The author. Who's with me for this hour? Arland Miglia. So how do you say your name? Arlen Ice. I assume it's uh, not with an idiotic Italianate tone as I just said it, Miglia. So how do you say Nick Leoz meal yet? So it's the way it should be pronounced. But if I said that people would run screaming in the opposite direction, so I know they don't have Not a huge ethnic neighborhood in Spokane. I'm just guessing I don't know the farther West you go. The tougher it is. But here in New York, that would be way would accept that. Well, look, Arlen meekly yet So you've written an entire book biography like this? Have you written other biographies? Is this your first out now? Biography? Is my first biography. I've worked a lot in other areas. I did a little history of a town in South Carolina. I worked and Christian, higher education, culture and notions and Christian higher education, all sorts of things, But this is the first biography that I've done. It's It's an extraordinary Process, isn't it? I mean, having done a few of them. It's just there's nothing like it to get involved in someone else's life and to dig and you said you'd read a previous biography about her. When was that written the previous one. Actually there, therefore others biographies. The first was written in the mid fifties by a woman that was kind of her assistant at the Hollywood Church. And it was based, basically, interviews that she did with Henrietta Mirrors in the in the mid fifties. The second one came out just after her death. Another assistant that worked with her relic you for many years in Hollywood. On one of her college department kind of proteges wrote that one that came out again the early sixties and then that it repeats a number of the things that showed up in the earlier book on then, in the Over the last decade or two. There've been a couple of other books that have come out. But again, they kind of reiterated what had been said before they were based. They were essentially based in a mirrors his own recollections or these peoples. Personal experiences with her. But again, those of people all were involved with her in Hollywood. None of them knew her really before, and she didn't come to Hollywood. So she was 38 years old, So I thought there was a A lot of room there to go back to the sources in Fargo in Minneapolis on even in Hollywood, the kind of piece together I hope more detailed perspective on her life and work. Well, uh what How did you do that? I mean, how does one go back? I've never written a biography where we have to use many primary sources just because there are so many books written about the subjects of my biographies. You know whether the Martin Luther Bahnhof for we're Wilberforce. But with somebody like mirrors. Yeah, I mean, where did you go to find information on her early years. How did you track that down? Well, I started at the First Baptist Church in Minneapolis. They have a pretty good archive there late in brewski Junior who was kind of their our chemist. Really? Let me have the run of the place and Had all the old records of the church went back and found actually heard her a notation in the minutes of the church record where she became a member of the church When she was a kid found records. Also in this school in the Small rural towns where she caught. One was North branch, which was kind of north of the twin city. She taught there for a year and then moved to the eastern Extreme eastern Minnesota and taught in, you know, count called Beardsley for a couple years went to the Methodist Church. She went to their found some records used a lot of the archives of the Minnesota History Center in ST Paul. And then, of course in Hollywood, I was able to use the archives at the Hollywood Church. I also interviewed over 60 people that knew her. And that was That was a lot of fun. A lot of folks that that's kind of amazing, and that's a lot of work. That is. That is amazing. So this took you a little while to do this. Just not the kind of thing you you knocked out during the Christmas vacation. Who was Leonard Eilers, the preaching cowboy. I had to ask you about the preaching cowboy, because when you're talking about You know, Fargo, and we're talking about another world, the 19 thirties and forties. So who was the preaching cowboy, But he grew up in Wyoming and then a zoo cowboy, and I think it was under the Ministry of Billy Sunday, he became a Christian moved out to the Southern California. And became involved. I think he was, if I remember correctly, he was working for one of the studios on was going to the Hollywood Church that they had a place they're just south of where the church is now, a few blocks Gower Gulch Because the church is on Gower and Carlos of just which is just north of Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Gulch is where all the cowboy guys would go if they wanted. They were waiting for casting calls for some of the studios. And so I learned such you know Here's an opportunity to have kind of a ministry among some of these, these folks that are trying to break into the film and that sort of stuff. So he worked for a studio for a while, but then quit that and became essentially a full time evangelist that he would do rope tricks and that sort of thing. Talk to kids about Christianity, that sort of thing, But he married the secretary at the Hollywood First Presbyterian Church and again, both of them knew mirrors quite well. I love the idea of evangelist with last Sue. Yeah, because I think Jesus did state I will make you a last sewer of men. But Typically, the Greek translation always says fishers of men. All right, So this is another time. And when you say the mother of modern evangelicalism again, most of us aren't aware of her, which is why I'm so grateful for your work in writing this this book, But you're saying this is a woman who had an influence on some of the key figures that we wouldn't know. Like Billy Graham. Tell us about that. How would they come to know of her? Mm. Well, partly through her ministry at the Hollywood Church, the again her that she built that study school from about 1619 28. Over 6000 in 1960. So the huge Sonny school on through that Sonny school came a number of folks and she was really involved in the developing the college Department of the Church of the Sunday school, and that's where that's what she really put a lot of her emphasis, so she's training. These college age leaders on bond that again helped develop build right. For example of founder of Campus Crusade for Christ. It came to came to faith under mirrors his leadership. And so much of what he did in campus crusade is reflective of his involvement. She he, he and fun it bright lived with mirrors for about 10 years. And actually started campus didn't start Chemist Crusade but nurtured campus crusade from mirrors his home across from U C L. A. Billy Graham first met her. He met some of her proteges before he met her. Actually, there was revival going on in the late forties and the twin cities and some of mirrors is Proteges, air mentees that had come out actually prayed with Graham Be assed. He became the head of that Northwest college or Northwest schools that was built Our William Bell Riley's creation, Riley passed on his Mantle to Billy Granted, Billy Graham became the youngest college president in the country for a time anyway, um in mirrors, invited him to come to the college briefing a conference at Forest Home, which is the conference center..

Think People were can scared for me 'cause I was starting to tell the truth on stage it was coming out. And I think it was just coming up. To. Your I mean.

He says, well, I'll take the lead spot so So what do you think in this pandemic and we've sort of we've adjusted the way we've we've learned how to live but I feel like people are getting even dumber in this like this pandemic has exposed a lot of because they have a choices how to behave and they're like, Oh, I wanNA kill myself right. He I think there's a reaction to they're calling it the new abnormal. And I think that's what it is. It's become a nihilism because when Americans are told what to do you tell Americans that there's global warming and they should drive small cars they buy a truck eager obey don't tell me what to do. Yeah Right. It's like, yeah there's this sort of like don't, and that's when that's when the threat is abstract and okay maybe one, hundred, eighty years down the line seventy years on the line we're GONNA start to see some real destruction aside. With that. So you could argue that some people could rationalize almost not going to be in my lifetime you'd have to be addicted to do it but that's what you're saying. This is like you will die next week maybe and two hundred thousand people are well now because their rationale is that old people will die and they and they see it as Darwinism, they see it as we're having trouble social security and Medicaid Anyway get rid of it just get these people off the roles. Actually. It's actually worse than burying their head in the sand. Their head is out of the sand they're seeing people and gone you can die. So. I. Would Flip that we've talked about this on our daily podcast that like I think Richard Branson if he wants to do it right. Really, sells his island and makes it basically hotspot island and we take everybody who doesn't want to wear masks. smashmouth down there you guys. It's a ship, your bikes down there.

Tiger was there I really was not corners I. Always felt like that show not to get too inside baseball fans who probably don't care. But like all of the gloves on I always felt so great doing that show whereas there are other great shows in La where at times you went up there and you're like man what's wrong with the audience every time went to Tiger Lily I'm like this is they blast and we can do whatever we want. You know what I mean those types of shows. Yeah. I mean. A lot of alternative shows used to be fun. They always used to be like that and now I find like. COMEDY NERDS and they're watching you, they're not there to laugh they're there to deconstruct what you're doing and then blog about it and think about how they're better.

We just get back to a lot of people are just happy to be there. Right? That out. Any of this for granted, that's what it felt like at that show that Tom Papa. Did I felt like everybody who was there was just pumped to be there they were along for the ride of every premise you had because they're like Oh my God we're watching live standup here they were there to pop and they were there to Wang Chung the up. The first goal the goal tie was glitter. Gulch on Fremont Street Strip club title why I was like fourteen, just the sign left an impression though.

They brought some back with them. It came back the. Bloody chainsaw wielding do yes. Emerged from the bushes right? That's not scary at all. If you see that, do you even patio? I mean, you just don't even pack up your stuff. If I'm with my don draper at, you're like John Hammond that scene madman where they just shake the blanket of all their garbage and way.

Or anywhere, you don't see it anywhere or outside of a horror movie for that matter who is giving this quote it doesn't say I think the person who wrote it just wants to do some flourish nine and yet Toronto Police confirmed that two people were arrested and two others injured yesterday when a large group of people were in a physical altercation I if two people have chainsaw saw, the group is not going to be large.

The last time I lived across from a point firm and market and the cliff. With the Ah red light that said, and flashed in my window here, So I've been weathered. When I lived in San Pedro, with my wifely. We lived in a very nice area next to the Angels gate. You know the old Korean bell from the usual suspects. Yeah, well, you know, flicked a cigarette it that guy. You know, my when I was in sixth grade our sixth grade field trip, you know, that's the big year when you're before you gotto junior high. You have one big trip was to go whale watching. We stayed the vagabond and Sam Pead Roe and then the day of ports of call. Yeah, Porch. A call is a pretty gnarly place.

You know, Uh, I drove through Hollywood the other night, but I could no, I thought it was a blade. Runner was it was I was like, Wow, right, And that's where people want to go when they come to town. And I, we steer them away from it. Like when I have uncles and aunts and cousins who come to town and they want to see Hollywood. I always say, like, you know. Well, let's let's put that off. Let's try Disneyland Universal. I don't know. Maybe you know, downtown L A with the homeless and then maybe maybe You know the hellhole that is Hollywood. I mean, when you're on the 101, it's almost like being on a boat. You know, with the with the freeway exits, right? And you're kind of like, you know, Um, I'm going to go in this cove. Now. That's a little too gnarly. Maybe I'll wait for fine like that. I don't think you know. Probably wait until sunset. It is like so much squalor just rolling up on the embankment.

And so I risk it. I get off on Gower. And I make an immediate right and I go and I blow through any red light. And if a cop pulls mail run, like, Look, I'm glad you're here. Write me a ticket, and you just watched me as I go to Joe's and then watch me get out of the city, please. But I don't stop for any red lights in Hollywood. Just take a pill or Gulch.

I'm old enough to remember I have a dream fight. The power screwed up police. Now it's I can't breathe. This is not new, and it's not going to come from just us. We need people who aren't black. We need people who aren't Brown when you know these things are happening in your suicide society to have a voice, a legitimate one lock instead with protests with US post with us, not just when it's convenient with it can be uncomfortable. The illusion, the image of Colin Kaepernick taken the need before a football game during the national anthem is the exact one that we see in Minnesota when the guy was laying on the ground for over eight minutes handcuffed, would a need to his neck. and was murdered. Let's start calling these days. What they are these are murdering. These are lynchings. These things have caused pain throughout our society for our community for hundreds of years. We been screaming out for your assisted. Yep Get in lockstep with us. Is What he's saying. They're getting lockstep. Protest with us. We'll continue take your phone calls eight seven, seven, seven ten. ESPN, we're to get Alan Sleep. Wayne here coming up. Mason Ireland seven ten ESPN. One of the great protest songs in History Marvin Gaye. What's going on Mason and Ireland seven ten ESPN? We're bringing Allen's leeway and right now looking on the screen right now. Peaceful protests in Ban is there's a peaceful protest right now on Hollywood Boulevard on Sunset Boulevard, all is calm. Right now at a six o'clock citywide curfew. And it does look like things are quieting down at least in Van Nuys at this moment. as protesters be dispersing no incidents at all there. And sleep. What's going on man? You know it's it's an interesting time to say the least, but I think I think an important time as well I mean obviously the entire country by the way it. It's not something that's just limited to the states I mean. You see a lot of these protests going on across the world so? It's it's a critical time. It's an important time I think. A lot of people are trying to get their message across, and as you know hopefully as long as they're doing it in a peaceful manner. You know in in some. In some I don't WanNa say weird way, but it could really be a beautiful united moment, and hopefully that's what it is, but obviously there's also been a lot that his. There's definitely been some looting going on. Right now, unfortunately, in Hollywood, yeah I been. You know they're looting CBS places known as that shopping center they're looting is known as Gower Gulch for years. KCBS where I worked was on the corner of Sunset and Gower. There's a there's a starbucks there. There is a pharmacy there and we would just walk across the street. Whenever, we needed anything, so it's sad for me to see that's going on and also mace the. Curfew has just kicked in. It's one. So if these guys. Number one they could get arrested for looting. which is the absolute wrong thing to do but? If. The police are going to live up to what mayor Garcetti said. They're going to start arresting people for being out after curfew and there's a massive march on Hollywood boulevard right now. Yeah, I don't think they'll. They'll necessarily arrest the marchers. These looters are asking for it. I mean it's almost. It's almost clockwork John the last couple of days. It's been right around this time where you feel. I could start it right some some of the looting, and whether it was Long Beach Santa Monica, but I feel like it was. Seven o'clock eight o'clock right around this time, some of that stuff started and. You're one hundred percent. Right when you're saying that. I think they have not allowed it to happen, but they've only only had the ability to control as much as they can, and that's A. Numbers Game Alan, being the police can only be in so many places at once, and you know we've. We've been very hard in the police today on the show, and it's because the guys in Minneapolis deserve it, but there's an awful lot of honest police officers that are trying to keep the peace that are actually protecting and serving. And at this point if you're citizen Los, Angeles, you just want to see people, no matter if they are protesting or if police officers not get hurt. The, looters are kind of asking for it. I don't even want to see them. Get hurt. No, I don't want to say I'M GONNA. Jr Smith beat somebody up JR Smith the basketball. Did you see that video? saw that video somebody tried to smash his car and Jr wasn't having it, and it's hard to feel sympathy for people that are out breaking into stores and looting and smashing up cars, because you know if the police don't get there, and the owner of the car gets there first then that's when somebody can really get her. And by the way to the point of their police officers doing an amazing job, they just showed a video on channel. Seven there was a protest at the intersection of sunset and Crescent Heights earlier today, and in order to disperse the crowd. A police officer are believed whoever was running the show at that particular intersection. Took a knee in front of protesters and said. We are with you. Will you please disperse now in the crowd dispersed again..

'cause neighborhoods crazy now. And that's we've got from Alpha Chino. It's a singularly. Crazy look particularly compared with how he looked as is Jimmy Hoffa in the Irishman for which he was nominated right. I think the hair is the biggest issue to the kind of disheveled. Look if you're going to have here that length which is by the way almost at his shoulders. You you gotta put some get a note from Brad Pitt. Put some styling cream minute. Brush it a little bit off your shoulders. His hair has never been brushed. I don't think I don't think so. Either Alba cheater.

Yeah one did happen Hard to say they had dinner together. with GONYEA NPR Davidson last year. Yet what county they. ooh Yeah So. They've been friends for awhile.

So any day I'm doing that is a good day. Oh, heck. Yeah. Eh kia. I'm really getting to like car, you we've looked into so many religions, and it's potent in terms of amount of material and claims there's a lot of depth to it. And yet it feels very removed from society at large does. And it seems very simple compared to a lot of other stuff. Very like simple premises. Yeah. I don't know. There's something very appealing about it to me. I I've been reading a lot of books, and I just keeping like what is it about this that I'm just enjoying so much? Yeah. It's carved out a very interesting niche for it. So yeah, it's fun to ask people if they've heard of back and car because most haven't right, but for those who have there's usually an interesting story behind why they have and they're thrilled to pieces that anyone else is talking about I can car, right? So we in our first episode in this series. We talked about visiting the temple of Eck in Chen has in Minnesota. We got back home to LA. And we thought well is there echina- car here? What we knew that actually are rhetorically thought that it had been on our list of potential investigations for low these many years, but this was our chance to go. We asked ourselves visit their neck and car in Los Angeles than we said to ourselves this there is so it is down on Sunset Boulevard. Yeah. I like the address six six six nine.

Pretty close our good old friends that Scientology it's also really directly across the street from Starbucks wants to catch a quick hot drink before they are so rare. I know you'll love the Starbucks that Gower Gulch if you come to LA that particular Starbucks good. There's also well, I would say this is the most significant landmark nearby. There's crossroads of the world of the world is technically part of crossroads of the world. Interesting. That would make sense. Yeah. I went to their website, and it showed Atkin car of prominently. Yeah. I think they run out of space there because crossroads of the world used to be like an outdoor mall kind of thing. And now someone just owns the whole area and leases out the different units in it. And I think acting car just rents one of them. Apparently, it was either the first or one of the first outdoor malls in America, right? That Minnesota over which has the largest. I've been there. It's pretty cool has this kind of round architecture. The the main central building that greets you on Sunset Boulevard and says crossroads of the world. And then it has this spire sticking up that has a earth on the top very iconic. If you see that you'll say, oh that thing. And apparently at one of the Florida parks. Disney uses this as sort of like a represent at Hollywood studios sense. So there you go it's directly right next door to the right of that structure, as you all know right across from that one, Starbucks we all like so much. It's also next to a Catholic church right church and school with a very toll spire of its own. So at can car is right in between those two I think my friend, gene Baur, the founder of farm sanctuary.
