"Kennedy library with the foundation question the National Archives each the rector of the office why are you still there then unfortunately the public is not really that aware of it these presidential foundation so they are costly bothering these things will they are all why why does the National Archives why do they bow to the will of these presidential foundations well I think the good good nice way of putting it is that they value the relationship they have with the with identical foundation the other part is money you know the thought they they like to use the foundations to fund special projects because it's far simpler than trying to find a way to raise their own budget but there's another thing that I noticed at the at the National Archives employees he leaders in DC will often work for his presidential foundation after they're done work I see and it once again this is a bipartisan and so I don't think that's the only but it's something that should that should and should be noticed bye bye more so what is the solution is the solution to have somebody at the National Archives do better oversight over these federally funded libraries and museums is the solution to have all of them in the future be be privately funded what do you think if you had your druthers what do you think the solution would be but all the other thing I would I would go for the former and not the latter however I just a simple story okay all right no longer work for god and let you get your library you ought to be the Obama model as as it currently is is probably the better model and give them the the current state of the law because I think that's the best way to go because if you're going to promote a certain version of history that obscures the fact but that's the one that got a part of the presidency you buy this all not taxpayer dollars right I I wish that wasn't the case once again if I if I cannot control everything that would not be but also because what I would want that what I was at the library I hope good history could she be promoted even while that was critical of the president I brought in conservative groups Nixon groups and I think they are the majority of them in Jordan that's important about Dixon the caller also greeted about or part we as consumers of history so it actually he respected the dorm I don't know that can't happen across the federal but whatever the part given everything I look once again I think the Obama bottle is probably for the best in two thousand twenty and then finally Michael tell me how many other non Hoover to George Bush libraries exist out there that all right run by the National Archives that are at a run by the the federal taxpayer well I don't know that there are several Calvin Coolidge's presidential library is is private and especially in the basement at the library that is a very simple presidential library other than we did one one of the more controversial wonder but there's a Jefferson Davis won by Thursday I was troubled about that I apologize for not having it down that's okay I'll just curious on what Michael I appreciate the time this morning and the education and the hope we talk again in the future all right well thank you well that's Michael consul wakes he's the author of the book they said no to Nixon Republicans who stood up to the president's abuses of power he also is a Cold War collections specialists have the temperament library and Robert F.

"Hopeful pros of Kennedy's speech may give the impression that he had been won over by the Grand Promise of scientific achievement men to the moon shot represented not exactly later that fall of nineteen sixty two JFK they had a meeting in the Oval Office that laid bare his views on space. There was a secret recording made of this meeting reading and it's incredible. It's so cool. It's like you listen to. It and it's like you're a fly on the wall for Kennedy's moon conversations in the White House it took about forty years from the conversation for the Kennedy Archives to find this recording and make it public. Good things come to those who made the the whole process of declassifying information is is is complex. This is Jamie Roth the deputy director of the Kennedy Library. We didn't know about the tapes until after the Watergate scandal happened. Nixon talked about how presidents had taping system but once they were found and then declassified and finally released the audio gave a really amazing window into Kennedy's Kennedy's views on the moonshot particularly this recording of the Oval Office meeting in the fall of sixty two. The tape is a bit hard to make out clearly in spots but I'm obviously going to play it for you anyway because it's so fascinating this is November twenty first nineteen sixty two at the White House and Kennedy is arguing with NASA administrator. Jim Webb about the progress of the Apollo Program. You know I do not. I think you were okay so JFK's asking Jim Webb here. If if the Moon Program is Nastase top priority and web actually says No. He says we have a bunch of top priorities and Kennedy. He's like Whoa stop right there. Clear Kennedy political the region work. The president is saying like it or not. We are doing this for international geopolitical reasons and we are in a race here. Web starts to push back on him saying listen soon. This is hard. NASA might need more time and resources to pull this off web says that live under the condition addition and the President's science advisor Jerome Wiesner cuts in the service and we're making the wildest guess sure they're all going back and forth and they're getting kind of riled up. The scientists are like we need you to support all all these other space science initiatives that will help us get to the moon we can't actually land there unless we put some time and money into figuring out these related space. Speiss challenges and Kennedy's Lake. Let me be very clear. There's only one reason we're spending this kind of money and even going to the moon at all to beat the Russians that we do order to get all of the ball every time. They believe that we've told people were preeminent in space. No one believes us. It's like what we need is to just get to the moon. It's fun to listen to the dynamic and the tension and seeing the president asking questions and and and really discovering what he's looking for and web giving it back to the president on bit saying you know what you're talking about and can use your right. I don't I am not interested enough. Now should be sending money because I'm not that interested. Statement gets good. We ought to know about it. Reasonable to whip partner by in Asia is to be damn where I'm not that interested in space. That's the big takeaway. Though the only justification to do it is because we hope to be them Kennedy as real from conversations that happened in the White House. It's that they're on tape now. We Kennedy really didn't care about the space program Nasa Bill Barry again but Web saw the space program is a is a very different if you did just what the president asked you to do which is sending people are GonNa get back. All you're really doing is a political spectacular which really has has no basis in reality and you so web is making the argument throughout the sixties whenever he meets the president that you know we need to have a robust based program we need. We may be studying the planet's. It's we need to be doing research. All kinds of things not just building a rocket. This in three is to the moon and Kennedy's not interested the tension between Kennedy Mighty and web kept bubbling up over the course of the following year Kennedy's a Boston. Your Democratic Democrat politician and web is an old southern boy who's used to talking a lot and explaining things and making his pitch and so they really roussel oil water in many ways.

And the great thing was that I was already into John Grisham when a few months ago he came up to Boston with four of his friends from old Mississippi, including one who was eight years old and had a bucket list of things he wanted to do and places he wanted to see and they were on a bus together and then they would come to these various places. They went to New York anyway when they came to the Kennedy library, part of the bucket list of the older guy was for me to talk to them for couple of hours. So Grisham was there. So it was so exciting for me just having come into reading his works to be actually meeting him in hearing him, talk about how he creates a story and what sparks his desire to write about a particular law firm particular medical problem.
