Samantha Irby Author of "Wow, No Thank You"

"So excited because at first is Samantha Irby one of the funniest writers out there, and she recently published her latest book called Wow. Thank you. It's our third book of essays, and it's about a whole new chapter in Sam's life. She's forty now and recently got married and moved from Chicago to Kalamazoo Michigan to be with her. So these days, she's trying to make friends as a grown adult and a new town and she's also a new step. Mom Partners Teenage Kids, her career change pretty dramatically to she went from writing a blog, hoping to get guys to notice her to writing for TV shows like shrill and work in progress, and I literally laughed out loud. Reading this book. Yeah, and she just talks about her life with such a brutal. Brutal honesty, and in this hilarious way that self deprecating, but also manages to inspire hope in me in this weird way like she's so honest about her flaws and shortcomings that it makes me feel better about myself and my life same I just love how real unrelatable. She does so relatable that she just like us has avoided going outside during this quarantine at all costs I don't know that I felt outside air. Him I mean maybe like three weeks I like. Get the nail on the. I think what you're describing is what Kathy and I have sometimes described as we are indoor gays. Are Type. Yes and we're underrepresented popular culture. Yes yes, we could have an indoor gay pride. But no one would show. Yeah, you just everybody tunes their TVs to the golden girls at the same time during indoor pry. Wave your rainbow flag out of the window and eat cheesecake at. Watch Golden Girls Curious. How did you come up with the title? Wow No. Thank you. I think I wanted to call this like. Is this hell like am I dead and is this? How something like that? I'm pitched. The book. Am I dead and is this how and they're like? Cute, we'll talk about the title when you've turned everything right, so turn it all the stuff and way of course, and then we start talking about what to call it and I both times was like. Has the title remember how I told you? It's called? Am I glad is this L.. They're like e Sweetie now, so my editor went through. She's like how about I go through the book and I'll pull out phrases that sound like they could be good titles I can't remember exactly where I said it, but at some point I say. Wow, sir, no, thank you. And she had that phrase in their house. Like oh that one. That's perfect and then I was like. Let's take out the Sir because I. Don't want to alienate any sirs who might WANNA buy? She was like okay agreed, but it really does encapsulate my approach to many things. Very, true to both me and the collection, so I was I was really happy with it. Gotcha. So you are now a step parent to two kids. and You write about your parenting style. Using the term quote detachment parenting. How how would you describe what detachment parenting is? Is. Walking out of the room the minute they walk into it. While also. Paying for everything they have. Real. Is like do not ask I. You have two parents who love you. Take Great Care View. They will decide like what vaccinations you need to get all of it like. Don't ask me any life. Advice I'm hearing a leg sign into violent movies. You WanNa Watch I'm here to give you the password for that stuff and also pay a to keep the Internet on, but you cannot come to me about any serious life choices. Be My fault whatever happens to. It's like my worst nightmare for these kids who are great. They're sweet, smart Nice, but like ten years from now for them to be late, so this thing you said to me in two thousand eighteen destroy. Sure. Whenever I like a serious look on their face, or they have a genuine question. That's not like you know what snacks to get at Costco, I just like I. Leave the realm. Oh. No, I'm the life advice no way.

Coronavirus and the impact on airline industry

"Not looking good for Virgin Atlantic. Yes so they announced yes to that. Cutting third of the workforce lots more than three thousand jobs. They've also said that they're going to be exiting Gatwick. Which has been its London base for thirty five years? They are still maintaining that base up in Manchester And this company had already actually been struggling with profitability for several years. So it's perhaps not surprising that they're really facing issues now. The government refused to Baylor saying that I haven't looked hard enough. Other investors elsewhere in the line is basically said that it's now fighting for its survival and that more measures might have to be introduced in the coming months and years and I think the story shows a few things it really shows that the week affirms a feeling the effects fast in an industry aviation industry which is struggling as a whole. And then there's also the knock on effect on airports Gatwick received a COUPLA recently. Be a Saturday causing flights out of their needs. Airports really depend on airlines for these lucrative slots so this is going to be a big problem to several people up and down the chain but there is good news for Wizar- Yes a Wiza- which is one of the airlines which has proved surprisingly buoyant. They managed to keep a large amount of cash surplus which has helped to tide them over during this crisis. And they're actually already. They've already resumed. Flights from Luton to some eastern European countries mainly bringing the seasonal farmworkers for example they brought over about hundred people lost Friday and they will announce that they're going to be resuming flights to Greece and Portugal from around June July to start tentatively taking holidaymakers abroad. They said that they will stop obviously wearing gloves. And now handout mosques to people that they haven't said that they'll be keeping that middle aisle seat free If if there is enough demand to finit they said that there just isn't evidence that that will reduce the risk of Jumps being spread. I mean we're seeing lots of airlines for instance. Klm saying that That they will be saying that. Mosque wearing is absolutely mandatory. But it's hard to see Without that middle seat being taken out how social distance thing. An and virus control can happen on aeroplanes effectively. Yeah I completely agree I mean on one hand. You are just got your. You have people in fairly close quarters in an airplane. The airplanes not going to be redesigned overnight people all within a mutual two of each other. Anyway I think a lot of it will center around. Different cleaning. Practices was the not going to have the magazine. For example so fewer and fewer touch points for people to transmit things and regular cleaning processes and staff updated on those sort of procedures Right well with the with airlines ca beginning to fly again. Airbnb is seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Tell us more about that. Yes this is an interesting one because AIRBNB They started out their financials. And it's not looking great actually for the company that cussing about twenty five percent of the workforce and their revenues predicted to hard this year. So that's sir drop of about two billion. And but they have said that they they're starting to see a tends to rise in domestic booking so obviously international travel is still looking shaky and wizards one of the few people and Kalamazoo said to start offering this flights but in places like Denmark and the Netherlands. For example people are starting to look into kings and make bookings to travel and holiday within their own country. And I think this ties in with a trend that we're going to be seeing a lot sort of rise of the staycationing this year as people pass aren't quite sure if they're ready to get on a flight or take an international holiday but they do still want to have a break they do still want to get away from from home so this this works with something that airbnb has already been seeing in China which is obviously ahead of the curve a bit from Europe where people are starting to travel domestically and take holidays within the country. Those name quite a little publicity around the fact that there are very cheap. Airfares out there at the moment. And also very cheap hotel bookings But it comes down to what the insurance policy is because we can book holidays abroad or indeed at home But we may very well may have to cancel them exactly. I think there's still so much uncertainty for people you know. I think people are desperate for holiday. It's been it's been really difficult. Few months vote for Europeans and for people all over the world. But it's just not clear whether for example be another spike in cases in your home country or the country where you're going to whether there's lockdown measures will change we'll more travel bans be brought in so. I think people are still waiting to see how things pan out in the next few months.

Samantha Irby Talks About Wow, No Thank You

"I think of it night as selling a book but as supporting the booksellers and publishers and other authors who are out there and also helping readers because readers are are desperate right now. I want to read. Actually something that Carl Siegel our critic wrote in her review of your book. I hope you're not one of those people that avoids reading reviews of Your Book. I am but I know that this was positive because everyone told me it was positive. So I'm braced for it and it's cool okay. All right ready. She wrote instead of a rule. Then a recommendation. For this moment if the grips of the pandemic your ability to interpret an exponential graph has increased well exponentially while your patients for narrative has plummeted. Tries Samantha. Irby so she's heartily recommending. You as something to read right now in order to give listeners a taste of why that is. Would you read a little bit from your new collection? Wow No thank you. Yes so. This is from Piece called hung up and it is about my love of cellular phones. I was late to the technology game. I'm staring down the barrel of my fortieth year and I bought my computer six or seven years ago. I didn't get my first iphone until they'd been around for years partially because I thought who needs that. I prefer to live in the real world mostly. I was skeptical because the idea of walking around with a five hundred dollar computer in my pocket seemed ridiculous and dangerous to me and the idea that I can somehow scraped together the money to purchase said pocket computer while also maintaining a roof over my head. I E partying all the time and paying for basic cable was hilarious and unrealistic. I was the last dinosaur at the club sending multi tap texts on an analog Nokia e fifty one with no camera when I finally upgraded to a smartphone. Several years after unsolicited selfish had taken hold of the nation. My exhausted psalms cracked and bleeding from a decade of repeatedly jamming down the two key to make a letter see. I didn't get what all the fuss was about. Okay sure this glowing rectangle in my bag can tell me the weather anywhere in the world at this exact moment but who cares but wait. It could also figure out precisely what wrong street. I'm turning down and steer me back in the right direction and it can count. How many steps? I took today while saving for me all the passwords I can never remember. Please excuse me while I build a shrine to the new most important thing in my life. I've read on my phone that we as a nation as a species have a problem with cellphones. Insert facts about the harms of cell phone usage. That I'm never going to research because I do not enjoy feeling like an underachiever. But do we really. Is there actually a problem with rescuing our brains from the doldrums of sitting at a red light or from the Malays caused by having even even a single second to sit alone with one terrible thoughts? I don't have children. Therefore I don't have any opinions on whether electronic devices are a bad influence on the mental growth and development of a child. If you tell me they are than I believe you. I'm sure there's scientific evidence prove it and I'm positive. There are doctors and licensed professionals. Who would attest to the DILATOT? Serious effect modern technology has on the brains and interpersonal skills of adults. But hear me out. Maybe it's worth it. That was great. What about you Samantha? Have you been able to read for fun during this time? I'm not ever so distracted that I can't pick up a book which I feel is good so I have been reading a lot of fiction and like nothing about disease or being locked in a room. But you're a huge thriller Fan Right. Is there s recommendations like good escape reading either thrillers or Wa which I know you also love yes so I am like pretty obsessed with this writer Louisa. Luna there are two books in this series so far. I don't think the series has the name. It's like an Alice Vega novel I think is maybe like the subtitle but the first one is called two girls down and her second book in the series is called the Janes and I just reread both of those and they are so good she so good thrillers are my thing and she is a master and I just reread Mary. H K choice books emergency contact and permanent record and they're both Y. A. They make me feel totally uncool because she has mastered the way. Young people talk. And I'm like man I kind of don't know what they're saying but I do love this a lot. She is a super cool writer. So this is your third book of essays. The first one meaty than we are never meeting in real life now. Wow No thank you. I'm curious how like in your mind or they categorized as different periods of Your Life. Different themes different topics. How do they stand apart for you? Well meaning to me feels most like. Here's an overview of my past. Here's a here's how we got here kind of and then we're never meeting in real life is kind of a mix of. Here's how we got here. Here's where we're going because I'd met my partner at that point. But she wasn't my wife yet and I hadn't moved from Chicago to Michigan yet. And then while no thank you is like where I am right now. It's a Kalamazoo Essay collection. It's me in Kalamazoo in our raggedy farmhouse with the cats. Like this is where I'm

"AH from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday France. Maybe one of the things things you look forward to on the weekend is going to hear some music or perhaps playing some of your own today to celebrate our three hundred episode of business wars daily. We're going to take take a look at two icons of the Guitar Business Gibson Guitar and fender recently our sister show business wars to deep dive into their decades long rivalry and today we're going to catch you up on where the two are now. Gibson guitars been on a rocky road to say the least the company was founded in nineteen o two and named after Kalamazoo Michigan Inventor Orville Gibson over the decades it became known for its high quality instruments particularly guitars played by Les Paul Elvis Presley Jimmy Page and bb be king among many others less Paul of course had a guitar named after him but in recent decades Gibson Star began fading in the nineteen eighties instrument sales slowed as kids chose synthesizers and video games over guitar strings over time that trend continued by the early two thousands more and more musicians composing and making music digitally under CEO Henry Jessica Gibson attempted a risky strategy to try to reduce Gibson's reliance on selling mainstream mainstream guitars. He wanted Gibson to become what he called a music lifestyle company with that as its New Strategy Jessica wits lead Gibson into buying buying an assortment of consumer electronics businesses making head bones turntables in speakers but what about guitars will according to the Nashville Tennessee and between twenty ten in two thousand fifteen the company's sales grew from three hundred million dollars to over two billion dollars but the business model was hollow just go lewitt's had also tried to reinvent his electric guitar business pioneering several attention-getting innovation some of which like a rocket shaped guitar and electronic robot tuning. Learning machines were mostly rejected by guitar purists. Many Gibson loyalists complained that quality dropped prices rose in by two thousand fifteen profit margin's dropped to a meager four percent meanwhile Gibson's most famous rival thunder was doing quite well founded by a Radio Repairman in an instrument lover named Leo Fender Back in Nineteen forty-six vendor is famous for its stratocaster and telecaster guitars. The company also invented an electric bass. Call the P. Base the precision bass which became a foundation for rock and roll like Gibson fenders instruments appeared in the hands of world famous artists from country to our beat Iraq in the nineteen eighties eighties and nineties fender custom crafted guitars for Jimmy Page Eric Clapton Jeff Beck Merle Haggard Stevie Ray Vaughan and the list goes on while Jessica Woodson his team were pursuing doing an aggressive strategy that took the company away from its core business fender to was expanding but in an arguably healthier less flashy fashion the company added Digital Products Guitar Students along with upgraded amplifiers and other basics by early twenty eighteen gibson was in debt to the tune one of half a billion dollars and filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection some wondered whether this would be Gibson Swansong or if the one hundred sixteen year old company could be saved last October Gibson name new leadership and the company emerged from bankruptcy now. It's getting back to basics. No more rockets shaped guitars electronic robot tuners crazy futuristic takes on its mainstay. Les Paul Guitar Today. Gibson offers two basic lines of its classic classic guitars modern and traditional many players feel like qualities returning and that the guitars while still expensive or no longer wildly overpriced and under engineered appeared. The company is slowly getting. It's Mojo back. Fender is at the top of its game but keeping an eye on Kitson. Hey Vendor knows its biggest. Competitor isn't down for the count to make sure it would compete with Gibson. Fender has sharpened up its budget minded imports made in Mexico and China. Those instruments were designed to undercut Gibson price in rival. I Will Gibson's affordable brand episode on at the same time fenders producing high quality more expensive guitars right here in the United States of America. It's not easy for icon at companies to maintain their relevance for more than a century but with help from their fans that's just what both Gibson and fender have managed to do at least at least for now for more on the twists and turns of one of America's great musical rivalries check out our series Gibson guitars versus fender our sister show mm-hmm business works from wondering this business wars daily at this week's episodes were written edited and produced by Elaine Appleton edited and produced by Emma Cortlandt are executive producers Marshal Louis created by for Non Lopez or whatever I'm David Brown and we'll see you next week.

7 cases of dangerous encephalitis investigated in Michigan: What you need to know

"Trucking about a problem couple cases of triple he and it's called that because its eastern equine encephalitis so we just say triple E. had only hit horses at that point but the crossover was inevitable front page of this morning free press Michigan girl gets a rare virus from bug bite she's hospitalized suffering with swelling of the brain our thoughts and prayers with her and her family the fact of the matter is the mosquitoes now have crossed over it's not just horses that are suffering with this Tripoli and we need to do something to protect ourselves and our family in the summer nights or early mornings prime time for mosquitoes we've said it before will say it again use mosquito repellent more on that coming up now would beyond west Nile and again according to the folks who joined us last week the Michigan department of health and Human Services it's triple E. that we're worried about doctor Frank make George Henry Ford health system of physician giving us kind of a summary and what we should and maybe should not do good morning doctor good morning Paul yet you know the alerts by the Michigan department of health were actually very specific to eastern act one apple ID can initially as you mention the alert was regarding several forces that had tested positive for the virus over on the west side of the state and that's important because the horses were basically a marker that the virus was active in the area well here's what's different now humans don't carry the virus normally it has to spread from forces it's important to know that eastern according to avoid virus can only be spread by mosquitoes humans don't get it directly from a force or from each other only from a Kerrier miss you know and you also need to know that eastern act pardon that white it is an incredibly dangerous fires killed by a third of people who become infected so here's the really important part and the change that different from last week this week the Michigan department of community health issue and expanded alert the virus was now also suspect it in several people from Kalamazoo and Marion counties so it is definitely more active and in point of fact there was one girl in particular that had been identified it definitely having it and the only real way to prevent infection is to avoid miss you know by now as the name implies eastern EC one satellite is it is more common on the east coast you started the United States and in fact Massachusetts is also experiencing at a severe outbreak right now as well it's all relative but the numbers the numbers sound small but because it's such a dangerous disease it is a severe outbreak and they've already had one eight Allah the in the R. Massachusetts area we're gonna talk again about how we tried to avoid those Miskito still nobody's come up with the reason why we have an Iraqi KV dim the skaters off the face of the earth they cost way more trouble than any positive thing that they bring to us but be that as it may there is a Tripoli vaccine available for horses but not for people if you have it if you have it for horses how far away are we from having it for people well where did it impacts I mean the you know to acting a horse is is not as complicated it back many people and I say that because eastern act wanted their flight is the fact far more worse than excel defect here as well and so you know you can vaccinate of a pool of course is and it would be in it's reasonably effective it is off the back the program because it also highly fatal in horses vaccinate every single human would not be very practical because in the big picture eastern act one insect bite is although it is really pretty rare there had actually only been seven cases and people in the state of Michigan in the whole decade from two thousand nine twenty eighteen only seventy eight so that's not that big a deal the reason this easterner point that white is the lease is easier in general are really a big deal is because they are transmitted by mosquitoes and because Miskito soon because so many different diseases in particular in this case and strap light it that's really the big messages that you can't take this ghettos lately as you mentioned briefly west Nile virus is a much more serious problem much more common and it can also cause encephalitis there are other very should die for example there's also a confirmed case of California and stuff like that eight of Michigan that actually in Tennessee county they're all caused by different viruses but that she is they are all spread by mosquitoes so it's not really practical to to develop and eastern EC one step wide vaccine for humans because the cases are so rare it's more practical to prevent mosquito bites and you try to prevent the population of forces from becoming infected and hence the horse back the next available me just to quickly say that the signs of it could be fever headache nausea vomiting fatigue and lethargy all of that but more importantly how do we avoid it apply insect repellents that contain the active ingredient DEET what other suggestions quickly doc well the biggest one protect yourself I'm from the steel plates in general long sleeves long pants avoiding the times when they're most the most active Baskin don it's also important to try and keep them from breeding around your home make sure that you empty water our water pools around your home where they could be breeding and make sure that you keep your screen in your doors protect it so they don't enter your home is easily if you you know basically you don't want in your home either also fans are actually reading of effective because they are not very good fliers so if you keep a fan blowing keep the air circulating away from you that makes it less likely that they will get you but the best protection is by far need an inspector palette a very good advice as

Why Are Some Words Funny?

"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as

"And gold to the best performance of during the semi final round. This year's winner playing the grov movement of the sonata. Number two in a minor was a sixteen year old violinist from Seattle, Charlotte marks. Sixteen years old performed the movement of the box out number two in a minor. Here's an interview. I had with Charlotte about her Bach playing and about her going on to win the gold medal here at the Stolberg international string competition. We're speaking with Charlotte marks backstage after the finals of the Stolberg international string competition, two thousand eighteen and Charlotte. We were talking earlier about boss and your and your your blue grass roots, and folk music roots and how the boat technique in bluegrass tends to be sort of loose and more fluid and don't you think that helps spa. Yeah. I think one of the things that I think helps with ball is the idea of having pulse having a beat that's so central in folk music is just the the rhythm, the beat, and that's something that I feel like it's central embark, but it's something that's often underestimated and just keeping that rhythm in the pulse. I think it really helps help helps the peace come alive. Yeah, I think Vivaldi probably his his contemporary was probably even a little bit better with that. Thing really Connectik sense of how that works. And I just, I just found that you're buckling was so fluid and flexible. And I, I think that has to do with your bluegrass and folk roots. And so it will come to no surprise to anybody that you were the winner of the special BOK prize here at the still. And now we can make the big reveal that you were the gold medal winner as well. Oh, my God. What were you? What did you think your chances where I mean, for instance, when you were playing, did you say to yourself with this ause concerto tonight? Would you were you saying? Yeah, I totally nailed this. I saying I was saying, I mean, it's this level. Everybody's so incredible. It's just it's totally subjective, I think. And you know, honestly, as I was listening to, I when I was playing, I thought it was doing really well. And then when I came out in the audience, it was like, okay, this, this is over. Everybody is. So just incredible. I couldn't. You know when I, when the third place in second place for named, I was thinking, okay, there's no way because I had heard them and they were so incredible. I didn't. I had. I didn't even slightly expect it totally credible such an honour. Well, who is incredible to hear you in this context? We're used to having on from the top to kind of fun. And here you were total rockstar total diva. It was so beautiful to hear you play the and and also the ball, you know, just loved that short. We're so proud of you, congratulate thank you so much. So here is that gold medal performance by sixteen year old Charlotte marks. This is the third movement of the violin concerto. Number three in b minor opus sixty one by Camille. Sessile.

"When we visit competition, it's always nice to get the perspective of one of the judges. We're speaking with Anthony Ross. The principal cellist with Minnesota orchestra, and he's here now as the judge. One of the judges of the still Berg competition here in Kalamazoo, and how appropriate is Toni may call you Tony? Absolutely. How procreate is that? Your career was really kicked off by a couple of early competition wins. You were medalist at the Tchaikovsky competition, but a couple of years before that you took first place as a teenager here at the Stober competition. What do you remember about that experience? Well, it was, you know, those competitions and these competitions are incredible moments for students in young professionals to look inside and really pull out the best of yourself. It's something that people asked me what was the level like when you played? And to be honest, I don't know because I was just so focusing on myself and becoming a better cellist better artists that you go out and play. And it's an incredible education tool for every contestant whether they make the semi-finals or not. I was gonna ask about that because you know my experience with competitions Clyburn at cetera, by impression was that I learned more and listened harder and worked harder at competitions than I ever did in school. Was that your experience? Exactly. And I remember when my teacher Indiana frit smog said in my sophomore year, it's time for you to competitions and I was like, oh, yeah, baby. I'm gonna practice hard now, and and I certainly did. It certainly was a tool. I did play this contest when I was sixteen years old three years earlier and didn't make made the finals but didn't get any wards. And. The funny story with that is that of course, I was, you know, a local here. I know we, we have that here. You are a winner at the stillbirth competition. Kalamazoo native and now coming back as judge right first time out age sixteen tell me right? And the first time I didn't get a prize, and one of the judges was Fritz Mogg who was going to be my teacher in college, which I didn't know yet, but he was also the teacher of my teachers here. And so as the contest ended, we had a little party at my teacher's house and Fritz Mogg was there, and my parents were invited and he told me to bring my cello because he was going to show me what my problems were. But before he did that, he set us down and the first thing he said to my parents is now let's discuss the lunacy of the judges. I like that. And you know, it wasn't lunacy at all. In fact, I wasn't said at all. I mean, I, I had no idea what the true level was, and I was sure that it was higher than what I had played and that I had worked to do so. There are three judges this year. In addition to you, Tony, there's violent Scott, Saint John and Aaron Dworkin founder of the sinks competition. So what are you looking for? What are you listening for and what? What sorts of things pop out about the first thing for me is, is I wanna be moved, I I wanna I wanna feel their emotion that they understand the emotion of the peace in that that if if the peace calls for me cry, wanna feel like I need to cry, I wanna feel I wanna hear their voice as as a great human voice. So they phrase in seeing those are probably my top two things you know, and the point of this is to reach people performing onstage. There's no other point to it unless you reach out to your audience and make them feel something special. And so that's what I'm looking for and as a cellist you must pay special attention to the winner of the BOK prize. Is that something that you all vote on or is that something that you. Kind of hold on dearly to in terms of your turf being cello suites? Well, not really because the violence, not as pretty good tell us we, it's really. Yeah, that's true. And they are really difficult..

"Of music directed the Kalamazoo junior symphony for decades, and I'd unexpectedly or too soon in nineteen seventy four. And it was his family and friends and community members who literally gathered around Esther Stolberg kitchen table saying, how do we commemorate the life of this man? So they came up with the notion of a competition and they hoped at that point in time that it might last for five years. But Julius had extrordinary ties to the greater string community. And of course his work with string students. He was the violin professor was legendary here. So we're just so lucky that that legend lived on much beyond five years. That's just an amazing thing. So describe the process to me. You know how many kids apply every year. This year, we had an all time record broken. We received over two hundred applications. So each year it's been growing and I believe that there are a number of reasons, word of mouth, happy contestants, happy parents, extrordinary performances that come out of this plus the support of audiences. Here in the Kalamazoo community. A young person will apply anywhere between the middle of October to our February first deadline, and then those applications go through two rounds of screening here in Kalamazoo. It's an anonymous process. So if we take this year's numbers as an example, those two hundred applicants were whittled down to the twelve semi-finalists that we heard today. How is that even possible? I mean, you know, just, you know, the proof is in the pudding. Of course, the twelve that I heard today were more artists than competitors, I think. So. What is that process like? Do do you have a a hair-splitting moment, you know, getting them down from two hundred? Or is it fairly obvious? I mean the the lead. Level must be astronomical. At this point. I think the level is astronomical and I'm always grateful that I am not the person making those decisions are screeners who do remain anonymous. They are well versed in the literature and the profession in what the field is like. There are multiple screeners at each level. They listen very carefully. They proceed with great integrity. But as you can imagine, there are some really tough calls made at the end and when kids apply until how old can they be our rules call for them to be age nineteen or under as of January, first of the competition here. So the kids you work with are very much eligible to appear on from the top. As a matter of fact, this year there's a large overlap, yes, there is a huge overlap, and I think that's what brought us together. We've noticed that overlap over the years that alumni from the top also end up being alumni of the Stalberg. It's a wonderful connection. And of course the missions are so similar to this while we've had a wonderful, you've had a wonderful legacy on from the top with all the kids that we always send a shout out to the Stolberg for for your support and the knowledge of this great, great talent. So thanks for talking with me and best of luck with this year's competition. Well, thank you and long live. Our mutual admiration society. After I talked with Margaret, those twelve semifinalists were winnowed down to six finalists. And finally to the three medallists you're going to hear on today's show. First up is the outstanding violinist who won the bronze eighteen year old Maya Angelou Buchanan from Chicago with Elizabeth Demio at the piano mile will perform the finale allegro Asai Ivanka from Erich Korngold violin concerto in d. New. Angelique Buchanan eighteen years old and her bronze winning performance.

By the way, Maya rather impressively also won the first prize in the two thousand seventeen Chicago Symphony Orchestra, young artists competition after she played the Korngold in the final round of the Stalberg competition, we sat down for a short chat. I, you know, first of all, I just want to hear about this instrument that you're playing on. Tell us well, I haven't on loan for three years from the stratovarius society. It's Adele, Jay.
