"Good Wednesday morning to you live inside the beltway. Yesterday was one of those great cross country days. And I mean great cross country days. How is that possible? Well, I got the airport early. Fetching misses Shu had since she had come out at a different time with on a different flight back. And so we were in separate airports using separate airplanes to get to the same place at the same time. So that meant one major change in my travel is that I was alone in the airport for two hours before the flight because I met to our guy, and I'm alone on the airplane and I have basically a stretch of 8 hours to just read, absorb and thank, talk to no one. That's a great advantage of mass on planet everyone sort of shut up. And nobody, no, your neighbors talk to you right in age of virus. One of the very few of our linings in this nightmare is that nobody tries to talk to you on airplane anymore. And I got I finished David drucker in Trump's shadow. I listened to nearly the complete end of the fugitivity by Jesse McCarthy. Listen to an hour of Buckeye talk and Buckeye talk is hosted by Douglas Marie, Les married, who you hear on this show on Friday in the college football playoff show segment. And Nathan Baird and Stephen means, and then you mix all that up. John blood all up with today's rundown and you realize, nobody knows much at all, but you eventually have to get a lesson first. A lesson first. What is a lesson first? That's the first thing you learn when you're a Catholic kid and the first day of first grade in 19 65, whatever your I guess it would be 62. Did I go to first grade? That's the Baltimore catechism lesson one. There are 9 ten. I can't remember how many different things are in the lesson one, but that's things like why are we on earth? Ten 11 serve got. So everybody ends up with a few lesson ones and a few areas of expertise. And if they start talking shop outside of it, drucker's book is so deeply magnificently detailed. About the Republican field for president, I know a lot of these people pretty well. I mean, senator cotton, secretary Pompeo, I've known these guys for more than a decade. And have talked with them for a long time. I learned a great deal about both men. I've known vice president Pence for I would guess 25 years. I learned a great deal about vice president Pence. I report politics for a living. I do. Politics and government. You know, the show with 90% current events, breaking news, politics, politics, and 10% sports. Cultured in the politics, of course, culture is upstream from politics. And then 10%, maybe 5%. Cleveland Browns Indians and Cavaliers. Ben had a good fantasy drive last night because he got Colin section, but I'll come back to that in a bit. And outside of your areas of expertise, you really need to study more and listen more not talk more or similar, but that is actually the opposite direction we are heading in as we become more siloed with tunnels and freeways between us. All right, there's some tunnel you don't know about people are talking to each other. My democratic tunnel. And there are some freeways where you move from Ohio State land to GLP land to China hot land. Here's lesson one, lesson first. We are in a Cold War with China, and it is deadly serious, and we're not treating it that way. It's as though we did not engage in the Cold War with the Soviet Union from the very beginning. And in that Cold War we're in a position of strength. So I'm going to replay in segment three today. My interview in the first I'm going to reply in the first hour of today, the interview I did in the last hour yesterday was senator Tom cotton, because of the lead story in The Washington Post in my view. It should be the lead story in The Washington Post. It is the lead story in the world, and it is the lead story every day in the world. China's test of hypersonic vehicle is part of a program to rapidly expand strategic and nuclear system. And this made the front page of the post at 5 45 p.m., Ellen, nakashima. And everything, Allen tells you is correct, but she's just slow, but I'm glad that the media is waking me up to what in the last year of the Trump administration, a series of 5 speeches that began with vice president Pence and included FBI director ray and then attorney general Barr, and then national security adviser Robert C O'Brien then finally my pectoral state Mike Pompeo, when he was still Secretary of State, the Nixon library. They laid it all out. So the smart people have known for a while, this is a deadly serious competition between civilization and during going to be two winners. China seeks the finlandization of the world. Russians existed on the finlandization of Finland when the Soviet Union and Finland was fennel. They had to be basically at the back and call of Russia. Free, sort of. My name. And that's what the CCP, the Chinese Communist Party wants for the world. And the world is waking up to that. So the rundown today, I'm going to do right now. But I understand that lesson one is that we are in a new Cold War with China. And we have to begin to teach people that and emphasize this and talk about the specifics. Because the only way we won the last Cold War, the first Cold War. Remember there was a First World War I then a Second World War. Now we had a first cohort in our in the second Cold War. And I think historians will note this, probably when general secretary ascended to his permanent general secretaryship of the Chinese Communist Party, I think that's what it will date too. Because he had a plan. That guy had a plan. That guy is brilliant, by the way. He is really smart. That makes him very dangerous. And we have to start acting like that. And broadcasts have to be informed by that. And the news really should pivot off of that. And what David drucker discovered.

And there's there's a decent amount of it that comes from the time of trump's presidency but even before that it's really about how a lot of the republicans that want to run for president twenty twenty four. We're preparing to run for president long before trump left office and at the same time taking a look at how trump's rise as a republican figure and then president impacted in changed a lot of the party so that we can try and get a handle on what this next generation of.

The great works of literary criticism. You know unless generation. i mean. you're the thing that book and this is so true. Worse in right if she solo economical and so precise and so forceful in her right. That's not a long book. She didn't have to write like a massive tone. She took care of like the whole thing right at sixteen. Maybe hundred twenty some odd page like that. It's incredible it's an absolutely incredible. Eat and that is one of the things by the way. No i also grant out in mice by the way this is not at all original point that i'm making on partly the first person to make. I'm just adding to the chorus here. But i do think it's important for people to recognize grabble with the fact that morrison was not only are preeminent novelists but an extraordinary intellectual right and someone who is bringing a set of ideas to the study of literature and also really really thinking very very carefully. Really forceful important ways within the tradition about You know social questions political questions. Feminism all of these things. He has extrordinary contributions that that we really should attend to so by that book. So now you've lied. You left even absolutely terrible position. Which i think is is. It will saying that you should that. I'm calling for the bernie of fred mountains extraordinary book in the break. But you'll the reason. I have set it up. This way is that. I think maybe even moten himself would see that. Perhaps that book if by burning it we if you have to read it first before you burn it. There's there's a way in which that kind of almost transmutation of the the substance of that book into ash into something that can live outside of the written page. I think he would need to be to a certain extent against that. Because i think one of the great strengths of his vision of the way that he thinks about these things that he saw tuned the ways in which some of the key aspects of knowledge transmission knowledge creation and aesthetic appreciation that are essential to us and that make our culture so vibrant and potent exists beyond the page and don't do not require in have never required a literary transmission. Such that happened. Have always been traditionally in in black holes in music in the oral tradition in the spoken word in preaching in the way in which we practice our aesthetics through a particular form of Would call sociology right away of being together that we practice in the way even you know even in the way we hang out and so to a certain extent his ideas will survive the burning of the book and do not require the printed page. If you if you sit down just listen to to moten speak to you for a little for for a while about pretty much any topic under the sun literally literally who will come away from that.

There are very few days. I would say that. Go by where. I don't write something. There are many days that go by where i feel like. I haven't written anything that i really like or that. You know genuinely productive. But i do right most days there most days of the week. I'll get some kind of writing done. But i'm not gonna lie. I'm not gonna let you know. I have my days where for whatever reason it's just not right and typically to be honest with you. That's a day when if it's if it's really like that you know i'm somebody who you're. Writing is at the core in the center of my life right. It's in in that. You know by the way right like i said writings always also reading so when i say right i'm also always read it right but it's not the only thing you know that i do like i love basketball. I love music and so on a. If if i'm having a bad writing there. And i feel that i i listen records man. You know i'm you know. I'll i'll put it on a record and listen to a whole record. I love to listen to music. And if it's not a good writing day maybe it's a day for taking in you know taking some music. Maybe it's a day or know trying Go learn about some something. I don't know about or discover some or maybe you know just go outside you know interests like soak up some sun or or watch a basketball game. You know what i mean and just like being you know being touched with that for a minute so i don't i don't i don't force it again. It's about rhythm. I don't wanna lose the rhythm of writing and so i need to. You know i would say almost every day though you know. I do eventually get to some writing. That's important. I try every day. I wish i had the best i can offer. I'd sundays some days. It just doesn't work. Life gets in the way as as you know. They've got another life. Sometimes it's gets away and the worst feeling is when you're motivated to write in campaign in the next day you have plenty of time and opportunity in the spirit a move in you so before we go. There is a game that i like to play with all of my guests. Don't you worry because this game brings me great job although it often tortures the guests. That's that's the best part. The game is called by barwick overt. I'm going to give you three books when you can buy when you can borrow. Were you gotta burn and not only tell me which one but you should tell me why you give.

"I promise you it's not but there are moments where i write in after really good about it. There are moments where. I think you mentioned the money. The first draft of this is brilliant. This is wonderful beautiful which only terrified me more mcnall. Every death sentence has to be that too. But i can't write sentenced to until i feel like symptoms. One is as perfect as possible. I can't write paragraph to paragraph one to me is something that i feel like the world is ready to reap and freezes me as a writer times and so editor never problem every editor. I've ever worked with this. I go by the time you the draft. I mean it's it's damn near ready for copy edit but why did you take three extra years since the draft you know. Tell me a little bit more about what it means for you to be exacting at the level of the sentence. Why you think it's that way. What do you think of as the afford ince's end the constraints of bad approach one of the risks and the hearing date. You're speaking to right. is i think. Most writers encountered this a good deal. You know one of the risks is a kind of paralysis you get so caught up in your own anxiety that you know you kind of lose track of the impulse you lose your your rhythm your. I'm somebody who thinks a lot about writing in terms of rhythm and so for me. Yes i am super exacting about it. But i tend to write you know typically in kind of spurts i would say you know or segments. You know it's kinda like you either. Either it's hot hot for a minute. You know it's like when you're you're a ball player like sometime you. Just go colds right right sometime. Will heat up. And then when they're hot you just pass them the ball right. Don't step is shooting at three. Just key feeding him the ball. You know what i mean. So when it's hot. I just keep going. And if he needs to be edited okay. We'll we'll do that later. But you know. I feel that it's in rhythm and and that for me is the thing because to me. You know there is that quality of of breath and voice in all of that and a lot of this also writes. I think now i'm interested in certain conaway in a in a writing style that i hope will be to a certain extent personal in you know I get this actually from fred moton. Who's a philosopher and writer. Poet theorist while i greatly admire you know but he was saying you know. I wanted my writing to have a sound really recognizable. Sound the way. That like you know you hear you know a few bars of miles davis and you know it's mine. We know his mouth medium right. It could not possibly be anybody else. I think i think of this to certain extent in terms of tradition right. I think i think black writers.

"Hopefully that's not an end point though right that should engender even more conversation and there should be all kinds of people not just me but many others come along and say i want extend the compensation in this direction or that direction because i disagree with this part where i disagree with that part and that's a good thing right like that's what we want that we we should what of our culture right that we have this really vibrant world where we're having serious really well in conversations about things that are incredibly important to the future of our politics and into the state of our self understanding. I'm going to ask you a little bit about process. Because one of the things that i find really interesting about your writing is how you reflect on your writing. You talk about returning to essays to work buildings for two years. You talk about writing individual pieces not necessarily with the goal of reducing this project at the time that you start writing in two thousand fourteen. Twenty s writing to make sense of the world. Sometimes you're writing as using writing as a method of inquiry even in the book you talk about the process of the letter Compared to baldwin not yourself to baller but the sort of draw on ballwig's essays is a way of saying on the page itself because only inquiry of this is fascinating to me. It makes me wonder how you'd think about writing as a process. What does your writing process. Look over actually. Asking meta question i ask. Since that's the kind of motor sort of how do you think abou- before i get into the specifics of your process. What is what is writing. Process me to you. What is the importance of thinking about process for me. The process of writing always begins in reading the to me. There's there's no real secret you know. There's no secret sauce In that sense right from my point of view. It's like i think it's pretty pretty evident in essays themselves that you know you know i'm someone who does a lot of.

"It's moment between the end of world war two and nineteen forty five in nineteen sixty five. There's this twenty year span in between the end of that war and the assassination of malcolm mathematics nineteen sixty five which is really kind of the the event in the moment that kind of changes the discourse really when we see the rise of black power and kind of insurgent black militancy that is accompanied in turn on on the side right by the rise of the black arts movement. But there's that moment in between it's kind of ill defined and and i'm really interested in what's going on in the literature of that era. And if in order to write a really good scholarly book that will make sense of that period and address. Those questions in the kinds of ways that i want to. I have to do that work of scholarship. I have to you know. Go into the archives. I have to work through very large bodies of secondary literature and in conversation with primarily other scholars conversation with a long line of eminent scholars. Who have thought long and hard about a literary history As such at course about the tradition of african american literature in particular. And when you write that kind of a book necessarily it's not going to be a book that can address itself to a kind of general audience. You hope that it. And i try even my scholarly writing to not get not be chewed jargon e or anything like that. I you know i i. I was kind of clarity of course but necessarily it's a specialized endeavor you know. I'm someone who has always felt that identifies a scholar also identify as i would just say as a writer and i think as a black writer special. We always felt that you know my my writing. Has i see myself. And i understand myself as coming within a tradition in and that means that i think about what that tradition in a certain sense i think requires of me if i can put it that way and that to me means thinking about how am i making all the incredible privilege that i've had to do all of this study right to spend years of my life in the library reading all these books having access to all of this knowledge. If i'm hoarding all of that knowledge for myself then only sharing it. Let's say with a with a scholarly audience insufficient to me in terms of my responsibilities as i understand it to the to the And so the sat to me. Is this form that. I think you know again has often been used as a way for you know intellectuals and black intellectuals right to say okay you have this this is where i stand professionally and i take pride in the scholarly work that i'm doing but the essay allows me to certain since two in this kind of amphibious way you know step out a little bit and write something that will speak to a wider audience and hopefully circulating a much wider way and that circulation is meaningful in the. It's not i should. I should make clear. you know. it's not for me just about imposing. My ideas are getting my ideas out to a wider world. A sense i'm interested in also writes circulating all the ideas that i'm exposed to because i had the opportunities right of being a scholar but that many other people don't necessarily have but i can give a kind of i can amplify right and i can give a kind of wider circulation too and so that that's me is something that i've always really valued that i think of as a kind of core aspect of what i do who are some. Sas that you think do that. Well were able to hit those notes..

"Way in which we're kind of in miniature form new putting that into practice. And and i think that's extraordinarily important into certain extent. I felt like the letter. The form of the open letter is is about trying to acknowledge. The intimacy of that gesture intimacy is such an important quality of his music but the open letter right is is both an attempt to to make an intimate appeal but one. That's also collective in opening public. And that i think is part of the genius of of his sound of his music that it's able to convey this extraordinary intimacy but at the same time it has this this largeness of spirit this kind of collective feeling and that's that's kind of the public or the open side of it and so that was again you know if it worked but it was. This wave me. Try to think about what's the floor. What's the kind of written floor that matches how i think about what this sound does with. This artists does with his music. Automates a little bit more about the broader project of the essay in a book or collection of essays as an intellectual as someone navigating a university where you have to write research books of some sort press books you know. Usually to get tenure. Why station credit you decide to to accumulate these essays that you've been writing since two thousand fourteen. Why did you decide that. This was the best sort of former the best way to introduce your ideas to the world to the public. I should say probably you know for clarity's sake right in terms of my scholarship. I'm primarily a literary scholar and someone who works on a literary history in you know in graduate school and in the work. That i'm still doing now. I was mostly interested in focusing on basically sort of problems that i saw or questions that i had about the relationship between politics and aesthetics in black literature in particular in a in a given historical moment that generally referred to as the early cold war..

"So i think what makes for a better question is first of all being skeptical about whatever form you tend to hear the questions being posed in right in other words taking ownership of the question and not simply regurgitating or repeating the wayne which question has come up in words that were sort of not your own right and so if if so typically let's say in regards to about black music about trap music oftentimes what you hear when you're in just just in conversations around you know on the corner anywhere and people say well you know it's bad it's hurts. Our you know it hurts our image. Or it's it's crass or it's immoral to say okay. Well that's that's one way of thinking about it. But how would i restate this for myself. And do i agree. No how can i rethink about some of the assumptions. They go into that in the first place. I think that's one way is always to refuse to simply repeat questions as they come to us really to reframe However you wanna do that. The second thing i would say about asking you better question is i think to try. And i think they're more maybe two components right one would be to try and make your personal sort of evaluative judgement out of it for a moment and try and think about it in a kind of disinterested way. So you'll 'cause we're trained in so in so many ways because lifted highly capitalistic immediately. Want to say do. I like it too. I dislike it you know. Do i want to buy more of it do i. You does it as a slap is. Is it good. Is it good for the club. Okay well those are. Those are some ways that make about something but if i step back from it and i try and ask to sort of like how was dismayed right. Like what how. What's what's it structure. Why is somebody making. What are the you know regardless of whether. I think it's good or bad. Just why. why are they making this not something else. I think that begins to move us in the direction of a that makes for a better question. Because in a sense you start to discover aspects of that thing that are are are actual league affecting our judgment but are things that we were not necessarily conscious right. There were not articulating explicitly. And so i think that you know better questions tend to be those that to a certain extent cut excavate all of the elements that are present in something and we might even know them or feel them intuitively but we haven't found language to describe him to make explicit but that process of making something explicit trivial right. Like when you that moment where you can start to apply language to something in a way where you can kind of get a hold on it. Part of what happens right. Is you're changing the discourse because those those questions that were coming at at you the way something is received now you have a way to start changing other people have that kind of first level reception when you put out. A question actually hits a on a slightly deeper level..

"That the music had a special relationship to especially of communicating the current state of affairs in a certain way of sort of american lights in really in a really deep and broad way Even though it's always kind of you know primarily identify with black with african american experience which you know one of the things that was really interesting right. And i wonder if you if you kind of had similar feelings about this. 'cause you yourself are also you know hip hop scholar at tastic goodbuy hip hop and i'm also someone right. Who comes in the wake of a candidate generation. Not just not just a music right. But thinking about the music and theorizing about the music whether they be prophets of the hood. I mean there's a whole literature on been thinking about it. But i also as i was kind of to write for the public beginning to do this kind of credit. Criticisms are that was also a moment when the music was was right in in a way that was perceptible and people began to talk about this thing that we all track trap music and part of me. What was curious about. What's the difference like what's different about. What's going on now. Relative to what was going on when i was coming up in the nineties and early two thousands so coming up in the nineties i was somebody who was a fan of nozzle jay z of all all kind of the greats of that era and so i found myself having this of awkward situation. Where when the music started to change in the mid twenty teens wanna call it that in an trap music became dominant dominant. Future became a huge superstar. I found myself in this position of awkwardly sounding like the people. I didn't sound like the people. I used to make fun of In sort of my parents generation said oh what is. This is no lyrical.
