"Today. I'm interviewing ashley winstead. Hey there how are you today. I'm so good. How are you doing. I am doing great. So can you tell me about your book. Yes okay so.

She's what she's self reporting is that she's just become obsessed with the idea of going back to her reunion. Ching tells you it's because she's changed so much since since she was a college student Since she was this person who was constantly. The runner-up constantly second-place never the winner. Someone who just felt always overlooked and mediocre in her friend group and she wants to go to this reunion because she wants the chance to make good and show everyone. This extremely accomplished person that she's become so that's what she tells you. And of course the real reasons are far deeper far more complex than you cover them throughout the book but you substantially. The story follows her from new york where she lives to her college in north carolina where she meets up with her old college friends And back in the day she in her group were really popular They you had pulled pranks and had antics were very notorious on campus and they used to be called the east how seven and that's after the dorm that they all met in their freshman year so the east house seven reunited except now ten years later.

I think there are a where taking a step back to go forward. Eighteen long-term are there's a little bit of patience needed with him but the potential and and that's the that's the hard work size his account because we say it all the time. He's lost dangerous word when it comes football potential. A lot of it as i. I've got to ask you about the gone forward that you recruited over i christmas but you you brought onto least actually alas playa that you brought on the oscar.

There's always that god that's played for many many many years at your foodi clubbers even into his fifties and sixties like his just always of the club and i think he's accountant man. I think every club needs one. He represents loyalty in the sport. Which makes it unique. He also represents a complete generation of supporters. Pretty much you know may my is twenty nine that generation of throughout the entire childhood Until now and unfortunately he played in a very whole time for the football club where everything was just design. It's not his fault that he was dropped into a bad situation. And i think he earned that respect we. I think because he wasn't the biggest player but he got the most out of he's body. I think he's earned that respect outside the the full of the football club and yeah not only will he. You know leave a hauling leadership on the field. But i think also teaches. The other players had to be accountant man. So there's another another story to it and and lucky mentioned the slaves.

"Seven hundred W. L. W. Jack Carroll till nine o'clock Jason Williams after the in the schedule now for a few weeks pretty good all right we are talking about the media we're talking about the trump Sir we're talking about Barack Hussein Obama who has come back in the conversation this week and a lot of it has to do with the material that was declassified in the Michael Flynn case and Jonathan Turley wrote an outstanding piece in the hill this week the title is called the unmasking of Joe Biden I'm gonna read part of that because it really sets up one I want to talk about here and in regards to Barack Obama Jonathan Turley writes the declassification material from Michael Flynn cases expose more chilling details of an effort by prosecutors to come up with a crime to use against the former national security adviser this week however a letter revealed another unsettling detail among over three dozen Obama administration officials seeking to unmask plan any investigation was former vice president Joe Biden this revelation came a day after buying denied any involvement in the investigation of Flynn it also follows the disclosure of the president Obama was aware of the investigation for three years many of the media have expressed horror at the notion that the trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the twenty sixteen eleven Alexion we now know there was never any credible evidence of any such collusion that testimony includes Evelyn Farkas we're gonna hear from her in just a moment but the motives of the Obama administration officials are apparently not to be questioned rights Jonathan Turley indeed back when candidate trump said the Obama administration was placing his campaign officials under surveillance the media universally mocked him that statement was later proven to be true the Obama administration used the secret foreign intelligence surveillance act that's called Faiza to conduct surveillance of trump campaign officials so with all these elevations they came out this past week about what happened in the final days of the Obama White House but do you think about it and during the course of the eight years of the Obama administration and you gotta be honest about it and if you're like me you suspected you might have known but at the very least a suspected that the evidence was there but you just chose not to see it or seek it out the media certainly didn't all along we saw all the evidence that Barack Obama it was most likely the most corrupt power hungry narcissist president and his administration was a reflection of that you can pick any one of the former Obama administration office holders and really lay out a fascinating and convincing timeline of corruption and illegality the content these people have for the constitution for regular people like you and me they truly feel as if they are the annoying ones touched by the divine hand of the creator to instruct the masses the rest of us how to how to conduct our miserable little lies because they really are the only ones that matter the rules they pass for the rest of us need not apply to them I was watching Tucker Carlson the other night when he was talking about various members of the Obama administration and how they brazenly just flat out lied time and time and time again about general Flynn about the president the trump was a a platen of a puppet of Vladimir Putin and all the entire made up phony Russian collusion story so at one point he's talking with Evelyn Farkas she was in the defense department under Obama so that made her a favorite of the cable news I mean she was you talk about flavor of the month she was flavor about six months that while that I've been maybe a little less than six months but she was definitely the flavor they loved her and they still you know they they still do they still love to have on people like her people who work for Obama in room one right in his administration because you see this means they have gravitas this means they're knowledgeable they were any orbit they were up close to Obama they got to see how he did what he did and surely I mean some of that some of that must've rubbed off on them and so that makes their word almost you know next to the word of god and so then if either of these former Obama acolytes say something happened that it must be true as if it were you know Moses coming down from the mountain with the tablets so these people get teed up routinely to bash trump and tell everyone with a group that you know this this phony made up seriousness just how deep in the pocket of Putin trump was and the danger that he poses to the United States and how something should be done about it and surely when all the investigations were over the American people would see just what a bad man trump really is and he really stole that election from Hillary Clinton so when they do this when they have people like this song especially M. S. N. B. C. CNN the anchors and analysts in this show hosts like making Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough don lemon Rachel Maddow Anderson Cooper wolf Blitzer George Stephanopoulos Chuck Todd Jake tapper that mean the list goes on what do they do they all turn their heads to the camera they not very serious very solemn boy what what a terrible thing these trump voters have done so let's go back to Evelyn Farkas alright who by the way is running for Congress now in in New York she was on with Mika Brzezinski this goes back to March of twenty seventeen okay March of twenty seventeen and here she lays out the that she has all this information she knows she knows that trump colluded with Russia and here she has landed out with mechanisms urging my former colleagues and and frankly speaking the people on the hill it was more actually aimed aimed at telling the hill people get as much information as you can get as much intelligence as you can before president Obama leaves the administration because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people who left sensor is hidden away in the bureaucracy that the trump folks if they found out how we knew what we knew about their the staff the trump staff dealing with Russians that they would try to compromise those sources and methods meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence so I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more we have very good intelligence on Russia so there you go to listen to what she was saying there almost all of it the L. on most every syllables a flat out lie she admitted in her under oath testimony that she knew nothing not only did she know nothing she shows the arrogance of the typical Obama it here and we needed that intelligence trump people they don't have any business with that they can't be trusted they can't be trusted knowing what we know so I want to play the other a smaller portion of what she said there and sort of the way she says it hit that that the trump folks if they found out how we knew what we knew about their the staff the trump staff dealing with Russians that they would try to compromise those sources and methods meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence so listen to that if they found out how we knew what they knew about their staff the trump staff dealing with the Russians and the way she says the way she says I think she caught herself she started to stray into an area where she didn't really want to go and if you listen the way she says that she sort of brings herself back on track to get to the back to the fake Russian conspiracy if they found out how we knew what we knew about their staff the trump staff well exactly what was she talking about how did she know how does the why was he so concerned about them finding out about how they knew about them so I was listening to that and thinking about that in a sort of jog my memory to something I saw years ago and it comes from of all people Maxine waters Maxine waters on a show called Washington watch posted by Roland Martin and the show was on television it was called the an outfit called TV one I think that's the network that Al Gore owned and then sold it to all the oil people has he continues to fight you know fossil fuels and global warming and all that stuff it was he Kerry cast in for millions and millions and millions so yeah I mean it was Al Gore were through these days a couple hundred million at least something like that so he does see a Maxine waters is on the show with a guy named Roland Martin end up the outfit that was of of course vice presidents the revised president al gore's outfits so it was shortly after being at the beginning of a bomb a second term and I have always remembered this exchange talking about what will become of a bomb after his time in the White House and Maxine waters makes it really clear what you listen to this Maxine waters makes it really clear about how Obama is really interested in holding on to power and apparently she has some insight into how he's going to do it and she lays it out let's listen to Maxine waters will discuss afterwards clear to to to our viewers and listeners is that look this is the inauguration represented the beginning of his second term yes but it also represented the countdown to the end of his presidency that's right and the reality is like anything else you better get what you care while he's there because look come twenty sixteen that's it well you know I don't know and I think some people are missing something here the president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life that's going to be very very powerful and who accurate organizing for America these now shifting to become a five oh one C. four that's right that's right and that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for president on the democratic ticket have to deal with that they're going to have to go down with that data base and the concerns of those people are because they can't get around it and he's been very smart I mean it's very powerful what he's leaving in place and I think that's what any democratic candidate is gonna have to do is not

R. fifteens Hey guys not moderate two mile itself walls killed all that stuff now he he he position himself pretty far to the west by the way that's the same voice David uses for Napoleon dynamite exactly yes it is there is little nappy D. in battle I I I was going to endorse Bernie Sanders but he he wouldn't give me Stotts so when you say politically but always closer to Bernie then his bag I don't know about that just because better doesn't have an ideology okay Beddoe worships at the altar of better no and Jack Carroll act just want to go out on the road rage over where the wind blows and I'm feeling it yeah that guy he just wants to feel important yes okay I did see this earlier today that I thought was really interesting and it was a dude at USA today that wrote a piece saying you know Barack Obama sat next to me in college they never talked about it before but Bernie should have been in the socialism class okay because all of us young upstarts were all into socialism in nineteen eighty three like what kind of world that could bring us until we took this class and realize holy crap this is terrible this is no way to run a government you know so he said I don't know exactly what Barack took out of this class no he didn't say much he was pretty quiet in the class but if Bernie would have at least heard what we learned in that class he would never have said the things he said about Castro in Cuba yeah because as he put it imagine if it would have been someone making comparison to Hitler and saying it but you know a lot of people quit smoking and the trains were on time now well here is J. him but compared to everything else this person did you just can't say that rates and I think they both you guys were spot on that Cuba thing really hurt burning more than people thought even at the time because he likes to paint a rosy picture of its democratic socialism this is not the same it's not the same we oppose the Thor tarian is and where it's not the same as socialism is not same as communism but then you're on the record raising a communist government yeah I talking about literacy programs like every Cuban was illiterate before Castro rose to power come on man well it it's also and what did they learn how to read the propaganda you care what your own ideas did you hear this story related to the to the Cuba stuff this guy Alan gross he had been a prisoner in Cuba for five years during the Obama administration now he says that Bernie Sanders commended Cuba when the center senator came to visit him while he was in prison he said quote Bernie said quote I don't know what's so wrong with this country that would be K. that's according to Alan gross he he did an interview with NPR now three years ago he had said something to that effect and then walked back because he's like I don't really want the limelight here but but yeah but only there was a delegation congressional delegation in twenty fourteen where you had senators Heidi Heitkamp Jon tester and Bernie Sanders they met with him for an hour and he told this guy who was in prison but he didn't understand why others criticize Cuba yes you lost a hundred pounds and several teeth while he was in prison in Cuba by the way wow okay don't just ask this question real quick is it a fair criticism from someone on the left to say that's the problem when trump says something nice about Kim Jong moon well he's not looking into the eyes of someone who's been victimized by the north Korean regime and saying well I don't know what's so bad about it right just say this in the way we want to run our country and that they usually get to actually get something out of this person is right to the relationship and the goal is actually for the United States right and that's where you know the Bernie campaign is come back and said well I mean the Barack Obama also raise some aspects of the Cuban government again I think you do actually I can't believe I'm defending big but you know you do also have to look at the context meeting meaning the same thing you just said about trump he's wanting something yes it's not just freelancing yeah by the way not all bad they go also like nineteen sixty Chevys the fact what are you talking about the drive to Cuba yeah you like to see her smile yeah yeah diversity that scene from one of the fast and furious movies yes

"jack carroll" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves
"And unexpected ways coming up. We'll hear how beat writer Jack Kerouac couldn't cope with the solitude while working king as I look out in the Pacific northwest by the end of his stint he had developed several invisible friends and he was having a highly competitive poker tournament with the mole. Tom Terry Tempest Williams reminds us how the erosion and the Utah Landscape holds lessons for our times suddenly the Colorado River was running red people were stopping taking pictures laughing all drenched and you just think this is what matters and this is what cleans our souls and Becky Lomax Amax explorers more national parks she not the Wilderness at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. North Dakota has a fun site to the had. These silly prairie dog towns where the prey dogs are running around. I'm there so-social end their funding. It's all ahead on travel with Rick. Steves come along Terry. Tempest Williams has found that erosion has a lot to say about the times we live him. She explains what the desert has been teaching her likely a little later in the hour. Our plus Becky Lomax recommends ways to immerse yourself in nature at a national park. That's in just a bit. Dan Richards is the kind of guy who goes out of his way to experience the solitude of man-made shelters and some of the wildest ends of the Earth in his book outpost. He takes us to ten far-flung post including the CAIRNGORMS at the Scottish highlands frozen Arctic Ghost towns and Mountaintop Shrines Japan not far from my home he also also followed in the footsteps of beat writer Jack Carroll who spent a summer on assignment at an isolated fire watch lookout in the cascade mountains so damn. Where did you go would find this watch tower that Kerouac wrote about I visited desolation peak which is in Washington State and in Nineteen fifty-six Jack Kerouac expense sixty three days there on top of the mountain desolation peak as a file account so his job was to watch for smoke on the horizon where the forested slopes around him might be a light because of lightning striking or misadventure hikers things like that and his job was to radio so in the sightings and he had a turntable before him couldn't osborne fire finder which is really like a little turntable recross has so you could get a bearing breath on them where exactly this pyre smoke was coming from and then another look on another mountain would do the same and then you would have a triangulation and teams of firefighters laugh fighters could be sent to these places to try and put out blazes really before they started now? Jack Kerouac spent sixty three days there essentially working as of as a fire lookout. Why would he spent so much time up there was he was he there too right or was he there to escape? was He there to relax. I think all of those his friend Gary Schneider the pilots are prize winning poet and fellow Buddhist had spent a couple of summers up on Sour Dough Mountain which is a few miles from desolation peak aac although actually to get there would take you a couple of days of solid hiking such as remoteness of these areas and Schneider said to karaoke that fire lookout not it afforded great leisure to write but you had to keep your wits about you and you had to be on a good with your own company and Karak's saw this I think as an opportunity to get work done but also ever since he was a young child he really wanted to be an outdoorsman. You know to go and spend time by himself and discover who really he was. In solitude solitude had always been this great undiscovered thing for him but then when he actually went when his he actually spent these sixty three days he got fairly depressed and valley crazed and fairly Farrell very quickly klay by the second week he'd smoked all of his tobacco he was smoking coffee grounds by the end of his stint he had developed several invisible friends and he was having a highly competitive poker tournament with the mall. He's curled around in a tiny attic. You have to imagine this outpost is like a little shanty Belvedere sort of like almost a conservatory because he needed three hundred sixty degree views of all the mountains around him to do his job nope so he has his tiny little attic and he crawled up into the attic and he'd read all of the newspapers that were up there for insulation he had made made all these notes but he'd gone pretty crazy and I think as with so many people when they go to the wild places that idea of what they'll be like and the reality was vastly different for him but then later he wrote about his stay he wrote about the stay three times in three different books. It's in the dumb bombs it's in desolation S. elation angels and he wrote about it in his essay collection lonesome traveler and each time that he writes about it. He reframed himself as better at being being alone as a better outdoorsman I think than he actually was because he you know a year today that he came down from his mountain area on the road was published in his life changed overnight. You know he went from a position where he couldn't get arrested this guy you know everyone knew about Qarawat but nobody wanted to publish him and then almost overnight on the road comes out and he turns into this almost Proto Dylan TV radio age superstar where his time has his own anymore anymore. You know everyone wants to buy a drink. Everyone wants his unpublished material to publish and for a quite addictive personality to put it mildly of Karaoke Harak. This was the worst thing in a way that could have happened to him and I think he looked back on these sixty three days of solitude as both a missed opportunity in a way that he wished wished he'd been better suited for it but also is how c and time because he never knew that kind of silence again his life became overnight blaring loud he became public property. That is such a fascinating story. I mean this time on the watch. Tower really was a a threshold for him wasn't it it was the making king of him in a way but also it was the breaking of him and I put myself in Karak shoes and I imagine the shame that he felt when he had to radio in a plea for help for more tobacco so for some food you know because he wanted to be the guy who could own it. You know own his stint almost in a kind of military way. I don't think it's coincidence that a lot of the Look House that the US Forest Service have now they're veterans you know people who have been trained to look after themselves right and Karaoke imagined agent. He was like that but then when he actually got there when he actually set himself up he discovered he was not the man he thought he was. This is travel with Rick Steves talking with Dan Richardson isn't Dan wrote a fascinating book outpost a journey to the wild ends of the earth then work specifically talking of the ten outposts that Dan did visit in discussing cussing is book. We're talking about the outpost in my home state of Washington. It's desolation peak in the North Cascades and Dan you don't just call an Uber and go there. You have to earn earned these spots. What was it like getting to the desolation peak fire lookout we drove north to place Bellingham and then we turned off the main lane highway and we began to we went east fezzet tango concrete which was a Cadillac had pegged as the last five and dime before you know you really hit the Wilde's? I spent a night in a place called mob amount and that was where I had a motel and then the next morning I went to the ranger base back on a stir so it could store all oh my food away from my tent 'cause I was camping up there and then carried on a meal following the Scott River and you go up past the Ross Dams uh-huh there are three amazing dams there and you keep going and then you'll really really beginning to get over the kind of battlements and in to this kind Kamei's savage fortress of the cascade mountains and then in my case what I did was I had on my kit and I got a boat up Ross Lake with an amazing using Guy Code Malachy who you know he looked like a young neil young and he had this brilliant fast boat and so we rocketed up this lake and he really has the the monopoly on boats on the lake and Croats time he went up far slower than I did and then you get the foot of desolation peak itself and you spend the rest ed as so you're on your second day by this point zigzagging your way and foot slogging back and forth on these happen turn paths all the way up the mountain and and then you get your campsite and maybe pitch a tent and you put all your stuff in your back and you put it far away from your tent and in my case I carried on up over a false summit to the actual talk and it was there that I met the current fire lookout a man could jim heavily and it was amazing to me him because as you say I was imagining odeal my own up there but no there's Jim and he's I think he just missed Vietnam. He was in the hundred and first the storied hundred first Airborne Division and so I'm up there with Jim and he immediately offers me coffee and we're in this amazing glass paneled space of his fire lookout and it was such chip privilege to be there and talk to this man but then you went all that way and what a journey to get solitude and then you find Jim up there and I would imagine Jim Spin and stuck up there with nobody to talk to. You've ventured all the way there to have solitude and you're just like somebody to talk to for this guy. If he's interesting that would be maybe wonderful folk but if he's not interesting. Wouldn't it be a huge disappointment for you in your agenda to get away from it all absolutely in a way I think every book that I've written it. Has this crux point where things are either going to go really well or they're gonna go really badly and I knew I would get up to the top of desolation and I've may be meet this one individual and either he would be incredibly welcoming and he would say come on in and have a look. You know this outpost or he would say no. You can't come in. I don't WanNa talk to you. Go Back Down County attend. There's nothing for you all because you don't make an AIRBNB I mean you're you're. You're just not gonNA say hi and he'd go. Where'd you come from? Get outta here or come on in have a cup of coffee exactly 'cause the fire lookout is still in use. Jim is very much a working watchmen and also he relays a lot of radio signals in the area so he is an important guy in the area. Did he looks welcoming yeah. He left me alone. I left him alone being on a mountain. You know all you you have to do is walk twenty meters and a direction. You are entirely alone in that savage fortress of the North Cascades has such a beautiful way to put it so when you're up there and you have a magic moment. You've got your solitude. You've got your vast view in the sun's going down. What was the moment it was just bliss really it? It was happiness I was exhausted having hike tool that way and then to be in that particular building little shed the glass shed this pagoda owed style outpost with this excellent man Jim we had coffee and we watched the mountains turn from pink to blood red to the million and through all the pope was you can imagine and then night came on and we were talking and I went back down to my tent and halfway through the night I was woken up by a Ba- yeah I mean you can't get any better than that. I don't think that's the sort of thing I love. I just love this notion. That travel can be transformative. It must be transformative love to go to a place like that that is so pristine so alone and then when you come back home you are different. Let's your take on. What's the value of this and and why.

S. presidents all died on July fourth another boy that you know the **** amazing fact I didn't know I remember learning that in school and I looked it up it is true the first voting credible the three the first by presidents would all die on the same date a to begin with all of them related causes and of all the dates of the year was July fourth but that's exactly what happened and not just any not just any July fourth right the first the error of the second president John Adams of the third president Thomas Jefferson both died on the same July fourth July fourth eighteen twenty six which happened to be the fiftieth anniversary of the declaration of independence and Thomas Jefferson had written basically re II was the author of the decorations and he was the author at the urging of John Adams who said I am but I but I don't write as well and and and people hate me so it's Tom should righted so they were both involved as well interesting story Adams was the chairman of the committee he had been appointed by the cardinal Congress to head the committee to write a decoration independence he didn't wanna righted himself and Jefferson was only thirty three years old at the time and Adams Jefferson to actually do the writing of the declaration of independence interesting little story there we have in the book it was a real hot summer in Philadelphia that summer and he wrote the he spent about a month writing the decoration in the up stairs of a building that's still there and in the bottom of the building is a McDonald's that that's that's where our famous decoration independence was basically written and and by the way we should note also that the words that we know we hold these truths to be self evident that was the product of the committee eventually re writing and this Jefferson put a desecrating his work he didn't use those words of the very the draft that he produced that was the result of the committee second guessing maybe even after they had him write it but one of the thing but I'm sure you know this and they were gonna take some calls are the last words of John Adams yeah he said Jefferson lives and those Adams was in Massachusetts and of course there is no instant communication in those days there was no radio or TV or even telephones so Adam's didn't know the Jefferson had died earlier that same day that same July fourth and just to punish the great factor Jim the fifth president James Monroe died on a July fourth he died on July fourth eighteen thirty one so I was the fifth anniversary yeah and what are the odds of me just to go back what are the odds of three of the first by prisons with all done on the same date of all the dates in the year all the computers five days it would be July fourth of all the gin joints in all its out now we're we're getting up to the other other matters of other knowledge by the way yeah Tom calls in from Pittsburgh before mentioned Katie K.
