Socialists Make A Strong Comeback In Bolivia
"Socialist appear to have made a strong comeback yesterday in Bolivia's presidential election. All of the votes have yet to be counted. But the handpicked candidate of ousted President Evo Morales seems to have taken a big lead in the first round. Those are supporters of socialist Louise Arcee, celebrating in downtown La Paz. NPR's Philip Reeves has been following this from his base in Rio de Janeiro and joins me now. Hi, Phil. Hi. Remind us what set the stage for this election. For the past year, Bolivia has been ruled by an interim president from the political right. Yeah, This goes back to late last year, when Morales was pushed out and went into exile. His opponent said he tried to rig an election. They cited an audit of that election by the Organization of American States that showed numerous irregularities. Others dispute those allegations and say Morales was the victim of a coup on elected interim government took over headed by right winger call Ginny Anya's. It's had a rough ride and yes crackdown on the opposition. Several dozen of Morales is indigenous supporters were killed by security forces during protests which polarized country of more Then the pandemic arrived in the electoral authorities postpone the election twice and that triggered mass protests and Nation and the nation wide blockade, and people were worried that yesterday's election would bring more unrest. But that didn't happen happily. So with all of this, how certain are we that the socialist Louise Arcee is actually one? Yeah, I mean, it doesn't appear that he's run out, won the first round outright, his main rival, Carlos Messer, today, conceded Saying that people have to recognize there's being a winner. The interim president Ginny Anya's tweeted, congratulations to us in his running mate Very early on Mexico in Argentina, You know, two big regional players politically on the left, have publicly congratulated him. And so, by the way is the U. S. Polls before the election did show us He was well ahead in the lead, you know as well in the lead, but his chances of winning out right in the first round weren't Sena's full. That great unofficial vote count indicate he's actually done that. But this hasn't been officially confirmed by the electoral authorities. They say the official count could take several days to complete. Can you say Maura about thie us in support of our say the U. S. Did concur with the allegations of border voter fraud committed by more Alice? Yeah, when they ran, it was pushed out. The Trump administration was frankly delighted, is a huge figure on the Latin American left. He was Bolivia's first indigenous president. He ruled for nearly 14 years. He's credited with growing the economy a lot not least through nationalization and lifting millions out of poverty with the help of a C who was his economy minister. S O. The prospect of a socialist comeback in Bolivia isn't likely to go down well in in Washington, the right wing tends to bracket morale is with Venezuelan Cuba and you know they saw his fall is a defeat for international socialism. But the State Department certainly saw the writing on the wall and has recently been saying it will work with whoever is legitimately elected. That's NPR's Philip Greaves. Thank you so
Venus: Possible signs of life discovered on planet
"Looking at the atmosphere in neighboring Venus see something that might just be a sign of life. They found the chemical signature of a noxious gas called Foss Feen. Cardiff University is Jane Greaves is one of the astronomers making the announcement today There is a longstanding theory that some of the smallest forms of life, these micro organisms might have been able to evolve upwards into the high clouds. Outside experts and the study authors themselves say say the the research research is is tantalizing, tantalizing, but but not not yet yet convincing. convincing.
Restoring Our Reefs
"So you began this story by sitting down and talking to Scott, he shared a little bit with you about why coral reefs were such an important topic. Yes. He spoke a lot about how our reeves today affected. By a lot of things and why is it necessary that we should go out there and raise their voices and protect our coral reefs today and kind of the bummer of it is that the type of work that Mote Marine laboratory aquarium is doing is so incredibly important and yet it is just. infamously underfunded research. So that's what makes partnerships like this kind of lifeline for different research programs. It's kind of just the nature of the beast. Really, yes absolutely I mean today a conservation program and research funding is extremely limited. Let's just jump right into it. Let's hear what's to say. We searched the world over for what nature provides and and and what we look at is is the efficacy in the quality that mother earth gross for us since she has been so beneficial to humans into the products that ends American makes, but one of the things that. I think might be important to your audience is why are the reefs important to us and that's something that you know I think of us really need to take a step back because as we're reading about things like coronavirus and and all of the challenges with that. What what we don't realize is is that there has been a even more aggressive epidemic happening under the seat and what do I mean by that is you know when when you when you look at At the at the coral reefs and what they provide us, it's actually quite shocking because nuclear reefs you and I were were were breathing were we're breathing oxygen. and. Most people think oxygen comes from rainforest it does but the biggest contributor to. You're breathing. Is actually coming from coral reefs. In fact, over fifty percent of the planet's oxygen is produced from coal res and yet they only occupy one percent of the ocean floor. and. That's something that when you look back over the last thirty years or so you have seen a die off. That is second to none and in in that die off is advancing more and more every day as the environmental conditions Really impact. The survival rate of. Of ancient reefs that have existed for centuries and and to put the sent into perspective in two thousand, seventeen alone twelve percent think about this twelve percent of the world's greaves became bleached and it just just in that period alone and all of the models predict that. Let. Alone will disappear forever for forty six hundred square miles. That's huge it is it is absolutely huge and when you go back the last thirty years There has been a substantial portion of the ocean reefs that have already died off and so when you project that out. By twenty fifty. Noah and other leading scientists are projecting that the majority of the ocean reefs will no longer exist. And putting that in again to perspective you and I were breathing air I, think that's the real news story here that everyone needs to be talking about is what does that mean all of us but not just us it's really about the legacy that our generation is leaving behind for the next generation because they have to bring it to survive. And that's why enzymatic part of our people and planet really took on this partnership in mission with Mote Marine is to help them number one raise raise the awareness of this challenge and to actually do something about it. Absolutely, Scott a marine ecosystem is definitely downplayed I. mean it hardly gets the same importance as the Amazons, the rainforests for that matter. In fact when when you look at at Coral it's actually a living animal and if you look at the extinction charts now it is number one at in the rate of extinction in a when you look at the cause, this you know which is is is is really where everyone needs to point to i? In it's coming from in concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere dude commissions of of fossils. That's all all all human. Driven Right. In an and you also look at the changing in a Ph rates of of the the water. As temperature rises and in you get glacier runoff. All of that combined you know really makes it a tough environment. If if you are a wreath yourself, you're the animal rights and you've got to be able to eleven. And and you know especially within the US but around the world. We all love our our manicured lawns and golf courses and all of those things, and what's happening is that development and use of various chemicals. Are, are really driving nutrient In a from farms, lawns, etc, and all that combined is all human driven. And we're all doing it in little ways each and every day. But at the end of the day, it's the aggregate that that is really causing this systemic die off throughout the world.

"You may have to work a job or have children or you know or whatnot But the best thing you can do is is to carve out Time every day To work on your book and and displaying yourself to protect out time. Bigger ASLI and I think that's the key to success. It's actually spent in the chair working. And and that's my advice to aspiring authors antastic. And I'm interested how you balance the right on the research. Do you do all the research I saw? You Sat right and and research into where it's relevant. How do you approach the balance there? Yeah you know macario. Books don't really require any research because like I say I just reading my life but the The other books all involved quite a bit of research and in in both the case of hard twisted and Tom and I did the research in advance in the case of Hard to estimate for a number of years and because of Tom and Lucky. I did a six month crash course reading everything that's ever been written about Lucky Jonah. Were about dewey or about the trial so I did the research on the front end for most of those. I'm actually working on an interesting project. Right now The University of New Mexico press asked me if I would like to write a book for their realist R. E. L. A. West series of books about classic American Western films. So they're hiring mush of western rider to Write one book about one film and they asked. If I'd like to participate I said sure so. I'm I'm actually writing. I'm going to be a writing. What will be the tip? Work about? the film blazing saddles allies. So so if I'm in the process now of both writing and researching at the same time trying to read everything that's ever been written about the movie While Riding Book about the movie. So I'm sort of doing both at the same time right now but it's quite research-intensive and did you choose the movie. Did they tell you what they want? They they they said which we would you like to do and I chose blazing saddles in part. Because as I mentioned before I represented Richard Pryor who died five but he was he karol Karol screenplay full with Mel Brooks So I knew I had an entree to widow. And maybe there's some information that other people might not have so. Yadda joys has been reading and so her. An extra track is Rita. What do you like to bend read? Imagine you do a lot of very intense and serious nonfiction reading as well but what are you taste in the more entertainment genre area? Yeah you know. In addition to the reading that I do Books I also book critic my local newspaper so I I. I thought there. Six Book reviews a year And for those books I generally try to read literary fiction or upmarket commercial fiction That's just coming out. I usually read them in in Galley. Form So do that and between the research. I'm doing and those Those books that I read for the column I don't and I belong to a book group also I don't have a whole lot of time for pleasure reading so my my guilty pleasure when I do have time to pleasure read is I like to read crime fiction. I like to read mystery fiction and you know I read. People like Philip Kerr or join US or Michael. Connelly our Nelson Demille those those sorts of prime writers. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's great and the commercial fiction that you're doing. Have you come across a couple recently that you think of with mentioning? Yeah I People ask me this little time. I the best book I read. Honestly in the last Maybe ten years Is a gentleman in Moscow by Immortal focused fabulous. Yeah if you haven't a chance to read that highly recommended. I thought that was great decision on my bedside table unread because of that on top of the TV or less. So you've mentioned blazing saddles. But what else is on your agenda for the Knicks twelve months to check the Raisa? Ooh I've got some interesting things so I've got this book. I I really just started writing. Best Blazing Saddles Book. But that's due to the publisher by the end of July so it's really a crash project At the same time I have a TV. Show that I'm trying to develop with a director. I in fact yesterday we were on the phone with Amblin entertainment. Which is Steven Spielberg's company About maybe trying to get them to partner with us so that's kind of interesting and if that comes through and that'll be fascinating I guess you can't tell us anything about this type of show. Yeah I it's I can tell you it's a it's a contemporary western basically. Yeah so So there's that and I'm doing something else. That's sort of new to me. I'm dabbling a little bit and songwriting with a friend of mine. Who Musician I've known him for fifty years. He called me up and said. Do you You ever write song lyrics and I said you know. I never have John but I I'd be willing to give it a try so I've written four songs for him and he's in the process of recording them as we speak and then we'll see what comes to that antastic now. I just have to ask with the songwriting What what sort of hype songs either. Who Your favorite in that area? What inspired me to even say yes to him was the fact that I just watched the Ken Burns Series on country music. I don't know if you saw that or not. But it's like oh it's fabulous. It's the whole history of American country music and So I had that in mind so I wrote One Country Song for The other songs are more contemporary love Song. Type things And the idea is he'll he'll he'll record them and we'll see if we can get you know some some notable people to perform. That's that's the goal. That's a long shot. It's like the TV thing is a long shot you know. It's all it's all speculative. Just don't look so we'll see what happens now. It sounds like you're having a lot of fun anyways.

"The fact that some of the senators maybe saint than some of the hero may prove to be. The biggest tennis ball and that in itself is just a feast for novelist. Isn't that yeah? You know Reasonable minds can differ about this but the result of my research and again I had access to documents that people never had. My conclusion was lucky to show and I got real real And do we really crossed a lot of ethical lines and prosecuting Luciano The main one being that they prosecuted for prostitution even though he was he was like the Godfather. He was ahead of organized crime in America but they they used as their way to get him Prostitution and New York State. And what do he did was he was the special prosecutor appointed to prosecute Organized Crime. He arrested every prostitute in Manhattan. Held them all in jail. And he held him there for months at a time and if they agreed to cooperate with them and penalty him what he wanted to hear then he left him out of jail and put them up and swank hotels and wine them and dine them. They wouldn't cooperate. They stay in jail so eventually he had a handful of prostitutes who who are willing to testify that Luciano was the guy behind the prostitution ring. And that was what? The trial was all about prostitution. They put Luciano on trial with a bunch of pimps and and and thugs and They made him out to be the head of the prostitution ring and they come up with all those other characters during the trial and the jury convicted. Yeah it's probably. He deserved conviction but not under under the exactly. Yeah yeah he was a crook but he wasn't. He probably wasn't that Crook one of the favorite questions that good reads like Dwight school does. Is that one about zero mystery on your own life. That would provide talk for a book and I must admit that I noticed that you had been asked that question and you had the most fascinating answer. Can you tell us about that because it will be Well it was to do with how listed and go that you found when you have hiking right. Yeah yeah so that was. Yeah so all right so years. Nineteen ninety three and I was still a lawyer in Los Angeles was my wife and we were on vacation became out here to the four corners to southern Utah where we now live almost But at that time I'd never been there before I've never been to that beautiful red rocks country that we have in South Eastern Utah and we met some friends from Colorado and we stayed at a very remote bed and breakfast and a place called Valley of the Gods Utah and we were out hiking. One day this was November of ninety three and we were returning to the car and just started to snow so You know when the snow starts to fall things will get hushed Walking along and stumbled upon to human skulls on the ground and I could you not. We've bent down and picked them up and pick them up. Thunderclap rolled down the canyon and shook the ground under our feet. And I was just one of those. Wow moments you know in your life So the mystery you know who skulls were these. How did they get here We were put in touch with a woman who ran the trading post in a place called Mexican hat utah. Which was the nearest town? This is very remote desolate area and A woman there named Doris Valley had written a little history about the the area Little Pamphlet Book. She'd self published and in that pamphlet. She devoted a chapter which was probably four pages long to notorious double murder. That had happened in John's Canyon and she believed that those skulls and by the way she said you're not the first people to find those skulls. Those are are Indian skulls either Navajo or or or Pyeho Indian skulls But but I believe that though scholars are connected to the double murder because I think the murderer who was a man named Clint Palmer killed two Navajos in order to get the sheep herding job which he was holding down the time that he committed double murder so so we went back to La and it was a fascinating story and it piqued our curiosity. And I spent a number of years. This is you know pre gle you know so I was. You know Doing things by mail and by telephone call doing this research into this this double murder and the stories on sold it was really fascinating that basically it starts in dustbowl Oklahoma in nineteen thirty four. And we're a homeless man and his thirteen year. Old Daughter are camping by the side of the road. And there'd be friend by a drifter from Texas who just been released from prison. His name was Clint Palmer and he Befriends the father and daughter lures now to Texas where he kills the father and kidnaps the daughter and so he takes a thirteen year old girl on one year crime and killing spree across the American southwest includes the double murder. The happens in John's Canyon. Utah and ends up back in Texas where he's trying. He's caught and convicted of the murder of the girl's father Novel I wrote. It was called hard twisted again. Very dark very gritty. But it's told from the point of view the thirteen year. Old Girl who Is is kidnapped by this. Man is raped Winds up having his baby which DIS And it's a classic Stockholm Syndrome situation. Where she's with them the whole time just plenty of opportunities to escape but but you know but she's with them all the way until the point that their capture then at that point she becomes a star witness against him and the trial so that was the story and that was the second novel heart. Gosh fantastic I can just picture that moment. You're talking about when you pick up switch starts to fall. It's often eerie. And then having the dash man you must have thought you having visitation. Yeah and you know the place where we were at They they were living in. What's called the dugout now? Dugout was like a crude structure. That back in the Nineteen Thirties People with would desperate people. Living Basically consists of attrition the ground with just a a roof over And this I thirty six year old Clint Palmer and his now fourteen year old captive a Lotta Garrett. We're living in this dugout in John's Canyon. In the bitter cold she just given birth and just lost her her baby. It was just a horrific situation and the dog is still there could see him and I thought my this is a story. Somebody needs to tell how I felt about it. That's great. But we ask that come to the end of that time together so it just looking at your wider career away from the individual books. See when things that you've done it more than any other that you quit with the secret of your success so far. I mean being privileged two major publishers and now Tori House as well And you've won lots of awards and things. What have you done right? Do you think can assume anything change. Gosh what would I change? I I can't say that change very much Like I say I've been very fortunate I think there are a lot of writers with probably more talent than me. Who who haven't had the break and haven't gotten the Asian haven't gotten published In terms of what I did right I think the best thing I did as a rider was that I brought to the process of writing the same sort of disciplined. I brought the practice of law. My Line is that I only write when I'm inspired but I make it a point to be inspired every morning at nine o'clock so I I I'm very regimented. I get up. I HAVE PRACTICED. I sit down at the computer. I work until lunchtime Usually come back in the afternoon and spend an hour or so polishing. What I wrote that morning and I try to do that while I'm writing a book. I try to do that seven days a week. So I really Bring a certain discipline to the process. I'm not a fast writer But I've managed since I began writing and his house and six. I've managed to write seven and now I'm working on my eighth Book And I what I you know. I credit That discipline that I brought to the process so my advice St John Writers You may not have the luxury of writing full-time..

"For ten years. I represented Richard Pryor that comedian and We did a lot of fun stuff together and Yeah there's a lot of grist for the mill there but you've taken a sort of right turn or maybe it's the least trend with your most recent book to the graveyard safe because it's quite a departure from the deck McTaggart Crime Series and possibly also from the other historical crime that you've been doing you describe it as pop echoes. Roller Pot romanet. And it's up my commercial fiction so tell us about the graveyard Jay Yeah so even though. I wrote my first five novels while living in Santa Fe I moved into South Western Colorado in two thousand twelve. My wife and I did and we bought a ranch here and like I mentioned vineyard and Each of my books we moved in January of two thousand twelve and the first Jack Book Hush money came out in June of two thousand twelve so all five of the books are already written. Came out while I was living in this new community and getting to know my new neighbors and whatnot and they were quite interested in the process and as each new book would come out. What they say is g. When are you going to write about here? and You know by the time the fifth book came out. I had no more excuses laugh so I thought I'm going to write a about here And so I looked at the setting where I live here in. Beautiful Treat Beautiful Red Rock country and South Western Colorado and There are certain conflicts that exist here. primarily of an ecological nature. I live in a place called mackelmill Canyon which is near the border with with Utah. It's near a place called the four corners in in in in south west and There's two interesting things about look elmo Canyon It's the southern boundary of a what we call a national monuments now national park but it's a scaled down version national park and it's called the canyons of the ancients National Monument and it's where the ancestral Pueblo and people Lived about a thousand years ago quite archaeological sites in and around where I live and the two most notable things about the monument. Our number one It said to have the densest concentration of archaeological sites anywhere in America There are estimated to be thirty thousand ancestral PUEBLO and cleft wellings and other sites in the in the monument the other notable thing about it sits on top of what's called the mackelmill Dome which is the largest and purest co two repository in the world So the extractive industries the oil and gas industry wants to drill wells here pump. Co Two out of the ground. Here and they send it in pipelines down to Texas and Oklahoma and use it To stimulate production Down there So there is this inherent tension that happens here between the extractive industries which want to Drill and put in pipelines and compressor stations and roads and all those good things And the environmental community and the archaeological community that wants to preserve the natural beauty and the archaeological resources around here so that that was like a natural tension existing area. You know Conflict is what is what drives compelling fiction. I thought that was a good Baseline concept around which to build a novel so the novel I wrote is called Church of the saints and I I like it up to a to a Shakespearean tragedy where you have the Cadillac of resource extraction and the Montagues of Environmental Conservation butting heads in the background but in the foreground. There is a love story. I Love Triangle between young woman from this community leaves go to California and comes back and returns to her old hometown. Only to find that the oil and gas industry isn't encroaching on her family's ranching heritage and that's another conflict and the story builds from there and you've got a a news tablets just that one Tory Chris. I understand that a specialist environmental publishing house. I I have spoken to other rules. Wolf is who published by Tori prison. They just crisis very highly. Yeah Tory House. It was like a departure from me. Also because the previous five novels have been with You know major publishing houses and Tori house is a smaller press. They're based out of Salt Lake City Utah and they're a nonprofit and their specialty is environmental literature and The book you know right in their wheelhouse it was set on the four corners has major environmental themes to it. And I know you spoke with Scott Graham that's right. Yeah Yeah and Actually actually met the publishers. At one of Scott's events I went to a local bookstore Scott was speaking and I struck up a conversation with Marc. Baylis is one of the owners story house press and he said you know. What are you working on these days and I told him and he said. Hey that's that's that's what we do you know. Can We take a look manuscript so I said sure and I sent them the script they very much wanted to publish it? And that's how I ended up with Orioles antastic. Yeah Yeah we can't leave talking about your individual books without mentioning. Lucky and Tom because number one. It was charge. And that's a Wall Street Journal. One of the best books of tweets that thing and then in that one US tuned into a novel. Most Kaplan to this shows courtroom clash between powerful mobster Lucky Luciano and a special prosecutor. I gather that this was based on a case of newly discovered documents since I was curious as to how you got your hands on those. So how that came about yeah. That's a good story. Also so I mentioned that I belong to this Riding Club in in California Culinary Driving Club and One day I was having lunch at Flint Ridge after riding with some friends members there and a young woman named CC Levi Whose father had been a very prominent trial lawyer in New York. Back in the nineteen thirties and forties. C- C- Told me that winter father died in nineteen seventy seven She had taken all this Office files if file cabinets and put them into storage and they'd been in storage and a barn in upstate. New York For the past. I don't know thirty some years and I see. Would you mind if I went back and looked at those files because I knew her? Father has defended the famous mobster lucky. Luciano in one of the most famous criminal trials of the century Like Luchino been prosecuted. Thirty six by Dewey Thomas Dewey. Because of that case became quite famous became the district attorney of New York he became. The governor of New York County almost became president of the United States. You may have seen a famous picture of our president. Harry Truman holding up a newspaper. That says Dewey Beats Truman The Headline Thomas Dewey. So he was a lawyer who who almost pick president but he was the prosecutor in the case and CC's father was defense lawyer. So I I she said sure. Go ahead so I jumped on. A plane flew back to New York from California Picked up my brother. We drove talk state New York. We found the barn inside the barn with all. These old tractors and equipment was a car under the tarp. For fifteen rusting file cabinet. We spent the whole day going through the file cabinets until we found. Believe it or not George Morton Levi's Defense file from the case of people versus Charles Luciano so I had possession of these documents. They'll be in the world had ever seen before amazing. Yeah and I thought I I really oh if I ever if I ever become a writer which I had hoped to do. I'M GONNA write this. You know someday. So that was my if novel And it was. It was one of the standalone novels from Bloomsbury. It was I told the story from four different points of view in alternating chapters so I had lucky Luciano character. I had the Thomas Dewey character. Had the George Morton lead character and I had a star witness in the case was a prostitute and cokie flow Brown and she was my fourth point of view character so I told the story through there for alternating points of view and the story begins in nineteen. Fourteen takes us through the roaring twenties into the Great Depression. It builds up to the the trial and then for the trial actually used Snippets of transcript from the actual trial in telling the story. It's quite fascinating store fascinating a date and I gather that it's really nice..

"Before turning your hand to fiction and I'm just wondering how did that transition about what's the some sort of casualness it made you think. I just must try my hand at writing a novel yeah. The catalyst was called a midlife crisis. And what happened was I turn fifty I've been at my fam law firm Whereas partner for twenty five years and I just thought to myself why do I WANNA do with the rest of my life? and I always wanted to write. I'd always been a reader and I bought something I wanted to try my hand dad and I always had this notion that I wanted to live more than one life on this earth and I've been on a particular trajectory for you know fifty years and I thought I'd try something completely different than so. I resigned my law firm partnership my wife did the same. She's also a lawyer and we pulled up stakes. We left La. We moved to Santa Fe New Mexico and I sound started writing. Fantastic just like that. That's amazing so now you've got to rising names that you work on. The CIA graves has written three match. Praise books on the Dick McTaggart crimes theories and then you've also got literary and historical fiction that you're right under the name of see Joseph Grade so I guess those two nine hundred just simply to differentiate those two different John Lewis Ave. Yeah so there's a bit of a back story to that which I'll be happy to tell you. I'm in Santa Fe. Now the year is two thousand six and I'm as I said writing this first novel which was my first Jack McTaggart novel. It was called Hush money and it took me about two years to right. I was really teaching myself how to write a novel and when it was finished I did. What all New Novels do which is to try to find the literary agent in New York and so I sent a query letters various agents in New York and I've received Forum rejection letters back and I probably sent out thirty letters. Probably got back thirty rejections. In the meantime I finished that novel and I'd start on my second novel and the second novel I wrote was something completely radic fan than the first person sort of sunny humorous Lawyer detective novel. Which was the first novel. Hush money the second novel was was based on a true crime That happened in the US in the nineteen thirties. It was a case I just stumbled upon and interested me a lot of research into and so that was calls hard twisted and it was a very different book. Third Person Very Dark Very greedy much more literary and a by two thousand and ten. I had written two novels. I was now four years into this experiment but I still had no agent and no publisher and so what I did was. I entered both of my manuscripts in a writing contest. It was called the southwest writers international writing contest and the year that I entered. There were six hundred and eighty entries in the contest and like a long story. Short hard twisted came in second and hush money came when I yeah so as a result of that I suddenly had a number of Asians contacting me offering to represent me I ended up signing with David Black Asian seeing the work and We sold the first mystery novel. Hush money to Saint Martins minute tar in a multi book deal and then we sold standalone Gritty historical novel to Bloomsbury But they didn't want to use the name Chuck Graves which are used on the first novel Because there was such radically different novels. They'd want there'd be reader confusion so We I didn't WANNA use a pen name. And if the mystery writing didn't work out ended up being you know Joe Schwarz for the rest of my life. So we reached a compromise where we use variations of my name. So that's a long way of saying that my mystery novels are written by Chuck Raves. And my other non mystery novels are under the name. See Joseph Graves remarkable that you could get I and seeking like that after having really not been able to stimulate mattress. That just shows you. That probably didn't even really weighed things. Yeah you know I. It's a really funny business. It's hard to break into and there's there's a big element of luck to it I think there are a lot of the world is full of really talented writers who never got their break and the world is full of really mediocre. Awful sewer are quite successful. That's just the way it is. Yeah so jackass as a lovely character. He's replaceable. He's thought about roguish ref around the edges. My school in the legal formalities. But but he's kind of got a heart of gold. I had the feeling when I was reading. It's almost like a wish fulfillment thing that you wished that no awards and able guys like Jack to make a living. But that doesn't is there any sort of choice in that suspicion? Well you know I. I think the Jack Taggart character probably my fantasy self. Jack Smarter Than Me. Funnier than me and better looking than me but other than that. There's a bit of me in there for sure In the first off. I'm not sure which one you're at but hush money was the first novel to make say because I like. Oh Yeah thank you Well the first novel takes place. He's a he's a a partner he he's he's sort of being tested for partnership At this at this White Shoe Law Firm in Pasadena California. That kind of describes law firm I worked at The fiction law firm was called handler. Grove The real law firm I worked at was called Han and Han in Pasadena so I sorta use my old law firm You know as a model for the setting and you know to a certain extent Jack has made. I find that writing Jack. Mctaggart novels Comes quite naturally to me Writing in the first person handwriting. That sorta breezy voice comes quite naturally to me Whereas when I write the other novels in the third person and try to be more literary I really have to work at it So I'd much rather just spend all my days writing the McTaggart novels but also have this. This notion that I want to be a serious novelist. You know write the great American novel so. I tried to do that when I'm not doing. Jack. That's lovely. Jack is about to become a full book series. I think one of the things I enjoyed about the books is that each one the headquartered interesting backdrop kind of Environment that the story takes place and then you get quite a lot of background information about those environment. So whether it's show drums thing or an upmarket winery or political campaigning. This quite a lot of extra information that comes with the action and the characterization and I wondered if you really did yourself have crystal understanding connections with those words before you write about them with you had to start from scratch and Research Them I. The answer is it was the former so the conceit there is that I try to take Jack and and Plunkett into An alien environment and they can fish out of water. 'cause Jack is real blue collar guy. He didn't grow up with a slipper spoon in his mouth but he finds himself in these Very sort of high end settings as you said in the world of equestrian show jumping or in the World Valley winemaking And as an outsider. He can kind of make fun of Of of those worlds a little bit But in as far as I'm concerned as a writer I am writing sort of what I know so. For example I did belong to an English. Riding Club in Los Angeles Called the Flint Ridge Rock and I am a kind of a wine guy. I you know a lot of wine tourism and in fact now I actually right now. so Those are world that I knew and politics. I was always interested in politics. And what in Pasadena I was the The campaign Treasure and campaign adviser for a friend who who ran for city council successfully so I had some exposure with all those worlds and I thought they were all interesting enough that it would it. Make good settings for Jack and Equity a good foil for the characters he might be in those types of settings. Yeah Yeah so. You've already explained a little bit about how you're trying to lure experienced student or the books. I have seen Refrains to a particular case with the The Weinstein Family Wine Company. You did have a case to yourself. That was relevant to that plotline today. sort of at the beginning of that book. There's there's a story it's not the main story in the book but it's sort of Jack's entry into the Into the case and it's a case in which A wealthy person dies and leaves behind two wives. Okay Jan In the book one of those. Why the person who dies is a film executive? And he you know media mogul and he leaves behind a wife and a mistress. Both of whom claim to be the wife and the mistress sues the life for half of a half of the deceased's estate. And that's how jackets and to Then that whole Napa Valley scene I had a case just like that I had a prominent citizen Client who passed away and behind two wives and That was quite an interesting case and thought that a fun way to sort of kick the call. So yes I have used actual Cases from my practice not too often and never is the main storyline. But I've used them. I had a very interesting Law Practice represented Interesting people including.

The Bible That Leaks Oil
"Well Dan yes does. Have you ever heard of the Oil Bible Lael by Dan Oil? It feels like I should have. Oh goodness gracious Dan. Can we say with the Texas all the whole Jerry Pierce and John Taylor has been traveling? The Nation Dan with the Oil Bible. Okay now let me tell you this Bible when it sort of magically secretes oil. Oh my God right like Ooh from it is clear this oil just flows so gross and they whenever there so apparently part of the the the trick here is the it doesn't actually seep oil when they're traveling only seeps oil at home but people visit them at home in order to encounter the Seeping Oil Bible and They yeah people have attributed healings of course An any pretty much anything you could imagine has been attributed to The Bible It's performing. Miracles is what it is performing miracles. They give away vials of the oil and they've they're growing famous and making a lot of money off the Oil Bible. Well the good folk good folk at let me see. What is this news organization? That's the little local their local news or the Chattanooga Times free press okay because in I. I assume somewhere there in Tennessee in Dalton. If that's a place in Tennessee the town is called Dalton. Okay then the times free press decided they were going to do some investigative reporting. Oh okay so. As any good organization news organization would do so. They started asking around and they got a source at the Dalton. Tractor supply which says that Pierce Right Would consistently go in and and by gallons of mineral okay And but but company policies prevented prohibited him from telling anything more specific than that. But that's pretty. That's pretty damning right there. Yeah so the Times. Free press paid for a series of chemical analyses of the oil that they were giving out the oil that was available at the Dalton. Tractor supply okay. Sure and they sent these analysis or these tests to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Okay that compared the samples and they said that it was the same thing. Oh shocking oil. Petroleum derived and the results quote strongly suggests that oil sample is mineral oil. Just like the stuff for sale. Right okay And then the second test that compared the chemical composition of Pierce's oil to the product tractor supply found a nearly exact match. They're doing mass spectrometry. Is that what they're doing it? The article doesn't get into such thing and using a gas chromatograph. What are they doing? Frank I don't know all right fine. There Ministry though began in two thousand sixteen in the week after Donald TRUMP'S INAUGURATION. And these these two guys So that they had a powerful religious experience As oil began coming out of the Bible. Now these guys are just clearly. Just fucking liars. It's obvious just charlatan right right. They're just soaking a Bible. They dropped a Bible into a VAT of oil one time and then just made a claim about it and then to realize we'll fuck all just just keep doing this and their followers. The people who've been healed people who've had deep religious experiences Are predictably sticking to their guns drinking with them. Yeah even though clearly. It's a fraud. It's a complete and utter fraught. So the the Oil Bible. Let me tell you something. Bats heads new. Here's the thing about human psychology for most humans. It is more tolerable to to believe some to to deal with the cognitive dissonance of believing something you know has been proven true then to change your mind. It's too painful for most people to change their mind and so they would rather deal with being idiots essentially believing something that has been proven false. Yeah well it's you know it's just it's the it's the media. Yeah it's it's Tanic right the devils newspaper Chattanooga Times free press you know yeah. I'm sure that that's satanist. The Lucien Greaves Editor in chief. The Times free press is it good on this local news. I know a great right again. Well done guys. How do they even have any money to do any testing? Probably all pro bono right probably including the reporting. Yes indeed okay. There's there's no money for independent newspapers anymore. That's what we're getting. That's the
Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn And Dominic Grieve discussed on Coffee House Shots
"I'm joined by cables and James for safe while James. We're expecting a number of resignations this week. We've already on from Sarah Duncan which we will talk about shortly but yesterday Philip Hammond went on the mall showing confirmed that he was going to resign after Theresa May's final Prime Minister's questions he's jumping before he's pushed isn't he in the whiteboard in Boris Johnson's campaign and during the cabinet is it oh no we had Hammond down for John Throw now. He said he won't serve raises. A more serious points about how he has behaved. I mean there's a very difficult question to answer which is which is he was the chancellor when trees I said no deal is better than a bad deal. He was the chance to win all school. Fifty one votes injuries may kept saying that so it does raise a question about whether he was ever actually committed to the policy of a day of government element of which he was a member where he actually meant it. I also think he's behaving in a deeply irresponsible manner because it is quite clear that whatever you think of it Theresa May's with Griffin is not going to Paul sounds comments so you need to ease off rob some kind of concessional compromise to get this thing through and by what he's doing and the interviews he's giving in the European press on his shenanigans in parliament he is basically saying to you. You do is compromise or for any concession because parliament's elements can stop no deal but as rebel dominic grieve says the only way we see Sir stopping ideal is to bring down and it is not clear yet for they have the numbers so he is paradox the actually making no deal more likely I mean the question you need to think about which is which do you think is worse for the British economy in the short even in the short to medium-term. No deal oracle been government. I think it's a fairly strong case that it is a Corbin government. He's also making that more likely I e P regrettable about the way that moment is paving the moment and it is kind of hard not to think that he is goes into his head that he wants to go down in history for something and and he also is driven. I think bar a personal dislike of Boris Johnson I mean they all they are about as different as characters. Come be and I think there is kind of I think you see it's going to be this is undoubtedly going to be a problem for. I want someone Jeez people for them. How does more technocratic mind almost find offensive and so they feel bound by the normal ties of Lords obligation that people would find to a former cabinet according to become Prime Minister K._t.? Philip Hammond is joining the Google could score. Does it become nine on the back benches of <hes> Torian Dominic grieve like David Goal obviously who are very worried about the consequences of no deal exit. Do you think sees himself as being the ringleader of this new group and if not who else I think he seasons I was having a pivotal role play and certainly to people who are involved. Perhaps on various this what's up groups for being proactive and interesting have those speculation but world theresa may might play but that is not seen as a row where you have some really leading from the front at all you might be able to bring them in a backward way whereas I I think when it comes to Philip Hammond he is someone who's very happy to go and bat for it and you see that has multiple media appearances. I think when you look the with squad and is going to be a wide ranging faction in the sense that perhaps you have ron thirty figures who are sympathetic to the coors the coups being to prevent a no deal brexit but they will have different points of high father willing to go so you mentioned Dominic Grieve Dominic Grieve is in a very small number of the squad in the sense he is willing to vote down the government or at least he has said he is in a will to stop. No deal brexit happened has suggested he might be willing to do that. He hasn't said Faucheux but he could laugh will be in the more hardline element say the bulk of the awkward squad so whether <unk> actually property matters most in the day to day running of Boris Johnson's government before you get to what we think he might be that ultimate showdown but you might have a confidence vote is what can they team up on. Now figures like David Gook I think he uh of azan we expect for example Greg Clark. We don't expect him to resign anticipation but will likely not be in the Boris Johnson Cabinet and fluker join this great when it comes to confidence as its deputy FAA supply SA- cutting off supply seems to be a step too far when it comes to finances so the things that they can team up on would be when you look to what Ambrose described as an activist speaker Joe Becker and he saw that last week with their Perot Gang Amendment Dominic grieve came up with that is. Something people feel much more comfortable going for because it feels like a less drastic mechanism so I think that's where this team can come together and when you look within that you also have a Muharan reports you could as as soon as Boris Johnson is appointed as prime minister barring a big shock for you could have Torri M._p.'s defect to the Liberal Democrats. Now that's different element here. Those people here very pro second referendum the anti no deal shoe but it it goes well beyond and I would say the bulk of the Gook squad have voted for Brexit deal many times free times so there is one way for Boris Johnson to almost end his his problem there which is if he can get change if he can get a due to Vatan this group that the not so hard line in their ears majority that they're not gonNA vote for anything. Boris Johnson comes up with but they do need it to be a deal. I've been the Golden Association from those cases right and then which is if you are working. WE'VE DOMINIC GRIEVE STEVE DOMINATE GREAVES AIM is not to prevent no deal is to have a second referendum into how the U._K.. Remain in the European Union and I mean this is actually a real problem for some members of this group which is essentially when when you choose your political allies here it becomes your message risk getting lost. It risks looking what you're joining move dominant grieve in his attempt to stay in the E._U.. Raleigh than trying to prevent is leaving without a deal and that is going to be a major kind of questionable how his group coheres when varies of stress intention put on that will be put on it when a deal okay for example if a deal does come back do the same gamers and then just ingredients as well still vote against the deal because they want a second referendum and remain all always have as spent so arguing that no deal would would be catastrophic that they would feel obliged to vote for a deal. I mean I think this is their difficulties and contradictions within this group Katie. Tell us about Sir Allen Dunkin's resignation so remiss as of this morning the minister was going to resign today expecting the bulk as for Hamilton the anti nausea to as opposed to have the minimum amount of time between the new prime minister taking over and the being a vacancy in your department. Perhaps a vacancy theresa may try and fill it. It seems now we're getting to the shorter time may just be the vacant so Annan Dunkin decided not wait until Wednesday's. He has gone on Monday morning now. I think this is attracted. Criticism for a number of reasons fest off some have suggested. The Alan Duncan hasn't always been the principal character when it comes to the cools attached himself to sue people point to the referendum when he was in talks about joining the board and then in the end decided apparently because he cannot get a certain position by his name to go for remain and that's what people think he's insincere. I think there is a more practical note here which is it may not be specific brief but clearly what's happening right now. In Iran the crisis in the factories May as haven't have Cobra meetings to to be a Foreign Office minister. Dan Ready have one. He was suspended in field -Unding who's quite busy doing the leadership contest exactly the Foreign Secretary Hughes O._T.. Trying to walk away he is getting Steve if he doesn't have his upset tomorrow. It doesn't really paint this picture of government that is taking a situation completely serious. They and I think it was just absence. Idea which is very easy right now. I tried to haunt you paint the Tory party as warring factions when if you want to be the party of you would think that there is a sense that you need to look at your on top of this I thought it was quite interesting as we've seen Greg Hands Jeremy Hunt supporter today take to social media and and say that he does not support preemptive ramp to resignations and he thinks does play into the hands of Jeremy Kuban so I think it's just Boris Johnson supporters who questioning some of the time yeah we've had some comments from people like Hugh Merryman who's Philip Hammons P. P. S. on Westminster unstrap last night saying that the government basically dropped the ball on the Iran Crisis James. Is it the case that this is about how the government relates to trump will try not to relate to trump in closely. I read this government moment was as it so often has been on the trump. Administration was caught between two stools which is once the U._K.. Via Gibraltar had impounded that Iranian tanker it was point clear for there was going to be Iranian retaliatory action of some sort when you consider the soy's of the Royal Navy at the moment is quickly if British flag shipping wants to be protected against retaliation that was going to need to be active cooperation with the U._S. and what appears to have been the case is that there was a hesitancy about going down that route even though the Americans were suggesting it because they didn't want to look like they were signing up to the full gamut of U._S.. Close John Roberts obviously against the Iran nuclear deal which the U._K.. is in favor of home not having that this is a big strategic confusion on the government's behalf which is once you take a decision to impound that tanker then you had to act to protect your own shipping in the most comprehensive way possible and the seizure of his ship on Friday shows that the Royal Navy simply doesn't clearly is not adequate soy's to do that right now and F. was going to need assistance from the U._S.. Which is the largest navy in the world and so I've been there is there is a question here of of how this was handled and I think if it wasn't for the fact that was storage contest ongoing? This will be a big story. Also the other issue is the Jeremy Corbyn is not exactly Joe. Jeremy Corbyn is taking predictable approach which is everyone should deescalate. What why are we upset? Iranians in the first place approach of his question here I mean there is there is a I mean the government is very vulnerable. Were more focused right on time. which is you made the decision to impound the ship because he believed it was going to Syria and breaking sanctions? You've failed to Defend U._K.. Shipping why and finally we get the result of the LIB DEM leadership contest test the softening Katie expecting Jo Swinson to win or we or is it much closer than it appeared start the contest but I think when it comes to leadership contests mistakes ulcer in the Tory leadership is very hard for the polling often into Western. What is exactly going on is interesting difficult? Speaking to Redemption Bove's is the sense. I think that Jason is more likely to get this biting. The margin is going to be interesting to the case that perhaps it didn't mean every time you speak to lived M._p.. They will tell you how friendly the contest is and how they're absolutely delighted rather not at David J Simpson even basements in will say that should be delighted if adcose obviously has so it definitely has a slightly different dynamic when it comes to and clearly has got attention in the past few weeks while the Tour de contests has been on but it is good to be a very important decision you think about the fact that we could be having an election anytime seeing that he looked Lib. Dem's are in the polls. The EH leader in contrast to re Party is actually inheriting a very positive situation where the party has got to whether or not that's pretty Vince cable assets or luck intangibles having the party until about gay sex. Eh Eh we've got the media fakers which is going to be hard before these leaders than what happened Tim Farron and the general election so I think it would be a surprise of Jo. Swinson didn't get it but ultimately do you get the the sense that whatever happens is not going to be as big upset as tomorrow. If Jeremy Hunt Somehow wins James Davey and Jo Swinson do differ in terms of how they get what they want in a hung parliament scenario scenario you say at Davy for instance would vote for Jeremy Corbyn Queen's speech of a hard legislation for a second referendum in it. Jo Swinson is much less clear on that but it's very uneasy about since she doesn't think you can trust Jeremy Corbyn too so the outcome of this contest is really important isn't it. I was very struck by in your writer for a debate that you took part on quizzing the Swinson and Davey on Friday night of this difficulty for the still skull by coach of what they say and also how they position themselves on the one hand they want to say to remain voters. You can't trust Jeremy Corbyn an inch on the other hand they want to try and create this brewed remain alliance and suggests that they'll they'll do whatever they need to do to stop brexit. They're not worried about their own party. I mean but he's going to be attention. I mean one of the things about general election is but even if general elections before breakfast it won't be for solely on Brexit and it'll be a difficult question former Lib dem's which is the Lib Dem's pro remain position is trucks into them a certain kind of middle class prosperous demographic but are probably probably you but not pro all of the taxes that Jeremy Corbyn with I'd like to place on them and how Lib Dem's navigate that question what was going to unconvincing in your blog. You're saying they were saying oh we'd vote for the Queen speed for them. Vote Down the budget. I kind of that way so I think that as a kind of tricky question also fascinating question which is we'll talk a lot on this bogas about Boris Johnson the polls how him getting a poll bounce with affects things I think is also worth noting gene to see whether the Lib Dem's got any kind of bounce service extra not where they're going to get that much but there's extra coverage a Nudie will get because I think if you look at the decline and support Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members if a new more energetically dome and leader you live in homes Po position is maintained. If Labour's can all regularly coming second in the polls because Boris Johnson is brought back some voices from the BREXIT party.
Blackout in South America raises questions about power grid
"Scape in South America, a massive power grid serves Argentina and neighboring or Aguire, as well as parts of Paraguay tens of millions of people rely on that grid until Sunday morning, when they could not the grid crashed much of three countries went dark, and peers, Philip Greaves has been covering this story from Rio de Janeiro Philip. Hi, how did this unfold? Well, it started stated at around seven in the morning people wake woke up for, you know what the hoped would be a nice peaceful Sunday to discover the power's out across almost all of Argentine, which is the second largest country in this region. And also in parts of neighboring Odaguard paddock y which get mentioned from the grid impact would have been a lot worse than a working day, but big cuts, always very serious, so trains running water supplies. Disrupted gas stations couldn't pump gas long lines at those stations that that could phones and the internet would disrupted, it happened on the day in Argentina and positive gubernatorial, elections, these actually still went ahead, but people to use that cell phones, give themselves enough light to vote by happened on Father's Day, when people have to go out for Sunday launch but had to cancel because, you know, restaurants and businesses shut. It took all day to get the lights completely back on. They are now back on. But people have a lot of questions about what precisely happened and what's going on in the region images of people in the darkened voting booths doing. They're doing their business there. I'm just thinking about the reminder of how wide spread electric has hospitals, I suppose might have backup generators. Maybe maybe not. I mean, people could be killed in a situation like this is there, any sense of what caused it. Well, we know that's true from Venezuela. Whether it was a huge cut recently. But in Argentina Odaguard not hearing that hospitals in that kind of crisis. They generate is working as to the ports. Now officials are saying that this was a failure in the grids into into connection system Chapman in the northeast between two big installations, and then triggered this unprecedented chain-reaction. They don't think. By the way, that this was a cyber attack, or any other kind of sabotage, but they don't exactly know what happened yet. They could be a couple of weeks before they do. We do know that the great and the infrastructure is not good shape. How are people responding to this to this odd Sunday? Very angry. Obviously, I mean, in Argentina that already facing really very hot times inflation, there is among the highest in the world, the economy's, you know, boom and bust economy. That's right now it's such a mess. The government very controversial decided to sign onto this huge fifty-six billion dollar bailout, their strikes and protests of president money Macanese of steady program regularly.

We haven't come across on. Oh, that's that's classic. Let's talk a little bit about the culture talking here with Lucien Greaves of the Tannock temple. There is a little bit of a rift. You addressed it in a general way near the beginning of our conversation as you see Jax who was sort of running the Detroit chapter and she held, and I think she continues to hold the idea that you can't work within a broken system to initiate positive change or to further positive change. And I think she just kind of has a a hope I'm not unfairly representing, but I just caught a burn it all down kind of vibe, whereas the panic temple as a whole is really more about working within the letter of the law within the system to try to establish and reinforce church-state separation or at least remind people church-state separation and enjoy individual private, religious expression. Yeah. And you're not radically paraphrasing. Anything she uses that terminology. On our side. You know, our attorney uses the terminology used to represent our position as well. Okay..

"There were a lot of locals air. We never we've never had problems with the local in Salem. And I was telling them about how when we first got the property here. I was really anxious about publicly announcing we were there because we are doing a lot of renovations getting our zoning in place before we let people even know that we were satanic temple. And this took a long time. There was a lot of kind of contract that need to be done in. I had taken to preemptively hating Salem because I was sure that given some of the other events we had done in the way, I hadn't expected a backlash against us in. Instead, we got protests death threats and everything else. I just felt certain that as soon as we announced our presence in Salem and had a physical property. We would get nothing, but vandalism assaults. You know, the neighbors would come out with pitchforks. Torches in nothing. Like that happened when we announced that we were there. Some of the Boston media was looking for scandal. They were walking around the neighborhood asking people their opinions, obviously, hoping somebody was going to be really pissed off everybody just kinda shrug their shoulders that well, this is Salem. They went to the local coffee shop just down the street from us. And they said, well, you know, they're opening a gallery in their headquarters. What do you think of that in the owner said, well, I guess it depends? What aren't they have, you know, and that was that was pretty much the response, the the majority religious identification, though, I'm told in Salem area is unitarian. Whereas Boston, it's Catholic. You know, Boston. We didn't event there people taking to the streets. And now, Salem, it's just it's just part of the local ambiance with that the protests featured in the film, the satanic mass that you guys were going to attempt and then the Boston Catholics came out in mass. Just absolutely losing their shit. Was that the footage? I was saying. Yeah. Yeah. That that was it. And that was that was one of those okay? Asians, where I hadn't anticipated that amount of backlash enor- was I at all happy about it. That was another thing. Where afterwards we had all this kind of criticism. Like that we that we had done this just for that. Attention just for that backlash in the fact of the matter was we were really intensely fighting the Oklahoma campaign that you know, we're trying to get back from at put up next at ten commandments monument in Oklahoma in I was really trying to get people to understand why that issue was important in. We were at the time. I think still trying to crowd fund money money to make our bathroom at monument. So I really wanted people's attention there. So I was actually irritated that to this. This little event we were going to do at Harvard at gotten so much. Attention was overshadowing the other things we were doing the film hail seat and actually shows. The construction of the bathroom at statue. And it's awesome. I mean, it was really something amazing to see the pieces come together to see the decisions made in the design. And then you guys wanted to bring it to Arkansas, there's sort of I don't know if it's the centerpiece of the film, but it's you in state Senator Jason Raper over in Arkansas who's just talking out of both sides of his mouth, right? One side. He's talking about how it's about this historical moral thing for the United States the ten commandments. And then he steps into a church behind the pulpit, and he starts talking about how the United States belongs to his particular pet religion. It's pathetic. Oh, yeah. And if you go to my Facebook page now one of my recent posts is rape or standing in front of a ten commandments monument. The exact same type is his, you know, the same kind of slab grant same design in any case somewhere else in Arkansas, and he's talking. About this as being evidence of efforts to bring the gospel into the public square, and he's proud of all the Christian individuals, or whatever it needs is very clear. Oh, he calls it a tangible evidence of God's work or something that the ten commandments monument in yet at the same time. He's trying to make the legal argument in court against us.

Of course, we talked about the Tannen temple before. And I are profiled Lucien Greaves before they are a non theistic religion. They don't believe in a literal heaven or hell or God or Satan, Satan is an icon which represents rebellion against tyranny. And they use religious symbolism without believing in the supernatural Lucien Greaves is co-founder of the Tanic temple is featured heavily in the documentary film. And he joins me for today's show. Lucien good to have you back man scraped to be back before we talk about the movie. Can we talk about the Tanic temple? I mean, do you guys attract a certain personality type? Or kind of a common background. I mean, do you see commonalities in people who are attracted to the tactic temple? There's commonalities and people who are tracked of the satanism in general, even different brands of Satan as people are attracted to Afia stick sex, which are much smaller much less prevalent than not the aesthetic satanic practice, but just the kind of rejection of arbitrary authority is the kind of main underlying common denominator for people who identify with satanism is in that that does lead to different certain character type since kind of psychological co morbidity that you might not anticipate in some some of those. I'm not even sure where they come from. But I think from my experience being where I am here. I see there's a there's there's a lot of animal lovers amongst us. And that really seems to be a common common thread. No, that's on her body know, we heard you guys, you know, cutting off their heads and drinking the blood rate. Exactly. But I think think on common thing, you'll see a lot of lot of Satan is's that they're not they're not necessarily used to organizing groups can be very impassioned about social issues, but not necessarily the most amenable to team playing, you know. So it can be can be difficult trying to get everybody. Together, we see that in many eighth east circles, you know, they're like at you ain't gonna hurt this cat. I left one flock. I'm not gonna join another. You know, I'm an independent spirit. Right. Right. And there's a lot to be said for that too. But it was also a lot to be said for the idea that if we don't hang together, we'll hang separately. Especially now, we're talking about this documentary that was produced by magnolia pictures.
