"Talks and we're joined in this portion of the program by AJ rice, who is the CEO of the public public relations. A premier communications firm in the nation's capital and also a man with the pretty firm thoughts about what's happening in this country right now. Hence his new book, the woking, dead, how societies Vogue virus destroys our cultures, published by post hill press and AJ thank you for being with us. Jim bow, it is really an honor to be here. I met you many moons ago when I was a puppy. I believe at a talkers convention, so really it's an honor, sir. Well, thank you. Broadcasting legend. Your mighty kind and I appreciate that AJ. Who exactly are the woking dead on the cover of the book is this hand reaching out from the ground like The Walking Dead I suppose, or the like, who would you describe as The Walking Dead? Well, that's Nancy Pelosi's hand. You don't recognize it? No. No, I didn't. I guess the lack of the lack of makeup and the dirt on the wrist there. It was hard to recognize. That's right. So we have been fighting political correctness and the nanny state for some time. And we've always had it. It's always been there It's sort of spins up every decade or so. And then it gets kind of pushed back down. We are fighting it. We're fighting the Murphy Brown battalions, the pantsuit battalions in the 90s that we're trying to regulate our speech then and be PC. There were more people in the game though pushing back on this on the attack on the language. There were more First Amendment absolutists back then. But The Walking Dead as it sort of constituted now is much more nefarious and it's everywhere. A lot of it comes in the form of cancel culture and the sort of social justice warriors that are trying to change really or tear down, I should say, western civilization, so you've got the 1619 Project. You've got critical race theory, you have what's going on on college campuses and what used to be only on college campuses now, we've got stuff being taught to kindergartners that you used to have to go into some kind of postmodern philosophy class to hear. You know, there's things that are happening with the LGBTQ community that are attacking and sort of trying to cancel people if they have a differing opinion. So The Walking Dead are everywhere. They're in the NBA. They're in Nike either in Disney. And one of the reasons I wrote the book is because I could see that the youth, and I'm a millennial, I'm a geriatric millennial, but a millennial, nonetheless, Gen Z in particular, which is the generation after us, they're being captured by this. They're totally being captured. Jimbo, they already had a hard time communicating. I mean, this is the generation that was born with a smartphone in their hand. I mean, I could remember a VCR and a pager. I can go back that far, at least, right? Oh yeah. So yeah, so that's one of the reasons I wrote it. It's a cultural virus. It's a Vogue virus. I do believe there's an expiration date on it. But the book, we try to have some fun, there's vignettes in the book. We poke fun at a lot of different aspects of where this stuff pops up. Yeah. And you talk about how it's gotten worse. Idaho wonder that it's gotten worse. You've had another generation who's been put through the indoctrination factory. I mean, if we continue at this rate and allow our young people to continue going through the indoctrination factory, there won't be many of you and me left in a few more years. Correct. And when people ask me where did this come from? I mean, it didn't come from the 90s. This is been part of the sort of long march through the institutions that really predates World War I. You had trendy Marxism show up on America's shores. And they surveyed a landscape a hundred years ago and they kind of dawned on them that they're not going to get a worker's revolution from a bunch of plumbers, longshoremen, lumberjacks, carpenters, bricklayers, and they needed different foot soldiers. They needed different people to sort of carry their message out because they weren't going to no matter what they thought they was going to happen with unions. And no matter how many socialists they thought they could maybe get elected, it wasn't going to happen here the way it did with the romanovs being murdered and overthrown to create the USSR. So where did they look? Well, they looked at academia. They looked at the media. They looked at the theater districts and the entertainment industry, which eventually beyond Broadway became Hollywood and silent pictures. And they found home in the Democrat party with everyone from Margaret Sanger to Woodrow Wilson. And if you fast forward a hundred years, Jimbo, I mean, these are the same villains we're fighting now. The same crew, the only difference is they have big tech now, which kind of acts as a force field for them. It kind of acts as their midair refueling tanker. It gives them the ability to deplatform, demonetize, shadow ban, a hundred years ago, if you wanted to censor Twain or Hemingway or the Bible or Graham Greene or whoever, it took a lot of effort to do that, you know? And even a hundred years ago, the push against some literature that was out there was mostly coming from religious groups that found certain things to libertine for the times

"Bartlett's rounds a bend, approaching the house. As she pulls into the garage, the boy suddenly burst out of the car, pushing and selling. Bartlett shakes her head. That's boys for you. After this long morning she can't wait to draw a bath and let Robert be the parent for the rest of the afternoon. Bartlett's gathers her purse and steps out of the car. But when she enters the house, she notices the boys standing in the kitchen, completely still. Her eldest son then turns and looks at her, his eyes, wide with fear. Barley feels her adrenaline suddenly kick in. She races past her boys, her stomach and her throat. It's her husband Robert. He's sitting at the kitchen table shaking. Babbling, trying to talk but not making any sense. His eyes look glazed over. He's sitting with one sock barely on his left foot, the other hanging in his hand. Immediately thanks her husband must be having a stroke. She snaps into action, ordering the boys to go downstairs, and she races to the kitchen, grabs the phone and dials their neighbor, a doctor. The man says he'll be right over. Arledge hangs up and returns to her husband, his eyes look helpless, and afraid. Marlon doesn't know what's about to happen, not to her husband, or their family.

The notion that your physical body and your thoughts are somehow different. I've got to hunch there the same thing, or at least very connected. We've known for years, for instance, that a healthy body leads to a healthy brain. And so exercise and eating right can be a great way to keep your thoughts on the healthy side of things too. But the opposite is true as well. Keep your mind healthy and your body follows. You'll feel less tired, less achy, less hurt. And of course, one way to keep your mind healthy is therapy.

In things that he's doing they're completely backwards and unreal but the method that he's doing is is incorrect. All the way through but the motivation of the way things are happening in progressed is is something that stuck at his heart it's basically trying to save. His daughter is what he's yeah but there's also a native american first nation kind of slant to to his beliefs in motivations and while some of those beliefs on their own our noble his message or ceremony nut. That's for sure. I did like that. He i'm not sure what language it was was that navajo or that. He was speaking a wider. No idea what it was. Well that makes does. I had to learn an idol.

"Mole is a word that you're credited with having brought into the English vocabulary. I think you borrowed it from the Soviets. Really? What was the origin of that? Well, I thought I've already from the Soviets. But they Editors of the Oxford English Dictionary can't find any Soviet reference to Mo. Oh, um Well, the origin Was in the notion. Off a mole of somebody who borrows deep into the fabric of our society. Is a little observed. A little noticed thing. Creature. And then from inside causes it's done for And it's certainly now become a notion. I think they used to be called sleepers in the CIA agents you put in place and you don't invite them to do anything risky, anything that could compromise them for years and years and years. While they worked their way into a position of power. And, uh, Philby was one such example. Of course, but Still be on the other hand, did Have a reporting responsibility to his Soviet masters from very early on and fulfilled it from very early on and got away with it. Coming in from the cold is another expression that you coin? Well, yes, I suppose so. A twist. I applied it to espionage. I suppose I was the first person to do that. And what was behind that? Well, um, behind. It was the character of Al agreements and the spy who came in from the cold, who was professional agent on aging professional agent who was suffering from what you might call a kind of spiritual metal fatigue. And he was offered one last mission on Dhere was told that when he had completed it, he could come in from the cold. But how did you come up with the expression? Well, it's a meteorological perception. It's cold out there and it's warmer indoors and the chill comes from from a lack of human contact or lack of Of human affection. Of having to keep what Graham keep. Graham Greene called the chip of ice in your heart all the time, which is also a writer's condition to a point. I guess that even then I was aware Of the comparability between the position of a writer in his environment and that of a spy. That both in a sense Trade off the people around them. They note things and they report Hm. Both are dependent upon the people they deceive. On both, in a sense, have to be entertainers to be accepted. How does a writer have to deceive? Well, I think that that chip of ice to which grand Green refers Is really some kind of recording instrument. LP, Hartley said. Don't leave me in your drawing room. I'm sure to read your letters. I don't read people's letters, but There is a part of me as the rest of most artists that stands back. From most experience. I never know whether that is what the French call a professional de formation. Which comes from practicing the craft. Whether people of that disposition are drawn to the craft in the first place. And how does the spy have to be an entertainer? Most of them have to have entertainment value, particularly if they are going to recruit people. If if I last we've never met, But I'm sure you're beautiful and young and elegant. And if I were Determined to obtain your services and Turn you around and get you to report upon your organization. Would be unlikely to come and have lunch with me if I wasn't a person of some charming entertainment value and knowing how to flatter people and knowing how to flatter people and more particularly knowing how to make people dependent on you because Once I had obtained you, we would then have to continue working for me. You would have to have a reason. And if it wasn't love, it would have to be ideology or if it wasn't either of those things that would have to be money. It was John the Caray in an interview we recorded in 1989. The Caray died Saturday of pneumonia. He was 89. I interviewed Lucarelli again in 2017 will hear that interview after a break. This is fresh air. Family riffs can feel especially painful around the holidays. Even without the added isolation of a pandemic. New research is emerging about the effects of estrangement and the mental and physical consequences it can have for all involved. Cantina Vega and we're talking about family estrangement, which is more common than you might think. Next time on the takeaway weekday afternoons at three on 93.9 FM. This is fresh air. We're remembering novelist John the Caray, who died on Saturday. Before he wrote about spies. He worked as a spy for Britain's domestic and foreign intelligence agencies. His most famous character, George Smiley, appeared in several of his novels. I interviewed Look Array for a second time in 2017 after the publication of his novel, a Legacy of Spies. The main character, Peter Quill, Um, had been a protege of Smiley's in a legacy of spies. Gwil, um, is retired, but is forced to re examine actions he took when he was a spy during the Cold War. Actions that may have cost the lives of two people who were close to him. Gianluca Ray. Welcome to fresh air. Let's begin with a reading from your new novel, A legacy of spies. Would you read the first page for us? Sure. What follows is a truthful account his best I'm able to provide it of my role in the British deception Operation Code named Windfall that was mounted against the East German intelligence Service stars E. In the late 19 fifties and early sixties. Resulted in the death of the best British secret agent I ever worked with. Under the innocents woman for whom he gave his life. Professional intelligence officer is no more immune to human feelings than the rest of mankind. What matters to him is the extent to which he is able to suppress them, whether in real time or in my case. 50 years on. Until a couple of months ago, lying in bed at night and the remote farmstead in Brittany, that is my home. Listening to the hunk of cattle on the bickering of hands. Resolutely fought off the accusing vices that from time to time attempted to disrupt my sleep. I was too young. I protested. Was two innocents too naive to junior. If you're looking for scalps, I told them Go to those grand masters of deception, George Smiley and his master control It was their refined.

"Hello and welcome to the files. I'm your host says you're on the nash. Sometimes known by number bloom demaria. I'm a writer of crime. Fiction and historical novels and incorrigible bibliophile. It's wonderful to be making a program on pretty much. My favorite subjects books on my show. I will be introducing youtube books. Classic and contemporary that. You must read should enjoy reading or should not touch with an eleven foot bargepole once a month. I would also be doing my special edition. Children's book show involving younger a few of us talking about and sharing their favorite books now. I don't mind admitting that. I am really a bit miffed. This morning. i've moved from the mildly perturbed and the mustn't grumble to really quite miffed. It is freezing cold. I know it's december. But i don't do bad weather. It is so cold and scraping. The ice of the windscreen of your car. At five o'clock in the morning just has to be experienced to be fully understood. We've just crude out of our second lockdown and trying desperately to get back to normal again. We've been given permission to be with our families for christmas which is wonderful but you know. It's just been a goto full year. And i can't wait to twenty twenty cent packing. I have just really had enough and it is so misty outside this morning. I can't even see properly out of my window. It looks as if somebody's lit an enormous bonfire in the middle of my garden. But this is misty albion. Isn't it so. I should get terribly poetic at this point. And start quoting season of mists. And mellow fruitfulness and all the rest but i am just really a bit fed up however this will see me up the fiorella. The files and books and literature is always a good tonic on a miserable warning. I feel like doing something a little bit different today. I so enjoyed doing a slightly more interconnected see matic program. The other week with the graham greene and danielle floods memoir connected up the quiet. American and dorsey cummings mcleans book. The homage to graham greene set in the early twenty first century. That i hope you won't mind too much. But i feel like doing something a little bit similar this week and the reason unhesitating bit is i couldn't find a nonfiction book which quite fitted in to this week's plan. I'm going to break with tradition. The tradition of thirty programs. I think and i'm going to do three fiction novels this week. That are all very much closely connected. Do let me know what you make of it. This is a one off. I don't intend to ignore nonfiction future programs. But i just felt i needed to go with the flow. I had this feeling. I should do these three books this week. So that's what i'm going to do so hope you don't mind. I hope you will find it enjoyable and informative the theme that runs through these three books. Two of them in particular where the author of one of the books admitted that he had been very very strongly influenced by the classic. I'm going to review. The theme is child. Who'd guilt childhood hood gills and having to live all one's life with the guilt of having done something wrong something sinful something damaging in childhood and three books. I'm going to be looking at that. Really deal with the subjects The classic novel the go between by l p hartley ian mcewen's a tournaments and mccune said that he was very influenced when writing atonement by the go between and cola hosseini's novel the kite runner which deals with the very same seen in a different country a different culture and deals with it actually a very different way to the other two novels so those are the three books. I'm going to be looking at today. I'll get back to the normal formula next week. I promise but because the go between the influence. I'm going to start with this classic on the show today. I love this book. I really do love. Hartley's the go between if nothing else for the extraordinarily poignant opening passage just the opening words. The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there. It's had a huge influence on my own. Writing in my book will never tell them. The old man telling his story keeps using that phrase. The post is a foreign country. I can't return. I can never go back..

"I think tom is too good and actor to be kicked off. The show kicked off a break up yeah. I don't know it seems like the core of this. Show will always have thoughts. I don't know whether that means they're together or not. I don't really know okay. So where do we going. Oh where we show is going i don't want to you don't wanna guess recap. I think on some level what it wants us to thing right now is that it's a fight between kendall and shiv to take over the company and the candle randall like having been the black sheep and on the verge of crashing out entirely is kind of almost possibly conceivably cleaning up his act to a degree that logan logan might let him take over but he's stealing batteries. Okay about one of the last things okay so like i remember when i was a kid i still this cooled brighton rock by graham greene which had this sort of anti hero cold old pinky who one of the things that pinky did in the book which kind of demonstrated how hot is he was he would just take a like a daddy long legs held in his hand in pickoff each of the legs one by one just because he's loosely cruel and so there's the scene at the end of this episode where <hes> candle just in a just auto thoughtless cruelty just decides to steal a pack of batteries from the bodega owner and throw them in the trash crash just because it's like a tiny little mini power moves that may give him you know a million of bump of coke kind of you know hi or is there something more to it. I think it's his little active rebellion against what against his sad puppet life because now he just has to do whatever his dad says he can't even ride a motorcycle anymore with his leading role in the back of the motors like give it up just be driven around in a car like i don't i don't i don't i'm hundred percent fully here for the show. This is not a criticism. I love the first episodes. I love everything about this show. I'm a little worried they're burning through too much plot because kendall went from like ambivalent about his dad to firing people for his dad to his dad's ads leading stealing batteries from poor bodega now we're right on the on the balcony which ends to him and she's like you really have difficulty like finding in the middle between like hazing him and west bingham. I called him about the actual line was we can't watch gyrations of this. Every other episode there has to be some other slow building ending move here and i think i mean. I don't know whether shows going but i wanna say that. Masha is going to be involved. Eh because musher is the one character his like who we need to know mystery so okay. Stay tuned. What's your favorite line an episode so too. I feel like we did a lot of them. Oh at one point logan and company are watching quite think is pierce morgan on t._v. Interviewing stuey and that's when stewart trashes vaulter appeal with someone named pierce i don't know and then he says self righteous. Fucking being butter wouldn't melt pulitzer pricks ryan. You have a favorite life. I've already used all mine. I'm going to give you three. It smells wrong and they're hiding shit roman that yep. I can give you fifty two seconds. That's good. That's really jerry yeah and the other one is see your ads are all a dealt diapers and shit pills etienne. I think i think my favorite line actually comes from guilt wail where they're talking about the private jet he goes you don't look a gift boeing in the dow right oh totally so that first of all like you know he he wrote logan and did the whole deal with the devil logan and now he's accepting private jets from random people to you. Don't look a gift boeing in the teeth. It's a good line. Can i add one more. You can wind shift suggests that they go for a salty reframe. Yes i was dying basic yeah did you ever we've all been guilty of us do that. When you were the editor in chief of we need a salty reframe yes yes. It's the tick tock in the reconstructive. <hes> modern web journals okay so we all season three. We are going to find out what happens.
