If they're getting if he's getting 500 grand. I don't know what the coach is that you just name I'm not sure what they're getting. But if you think about their money up and all the other coaches and his money and all that it ain't a drop in the bucket compared to what they've brought in for the university. Yeah, maybe not this year, Just because of you know what happened this year, But in general, you're absolutely right. There's no question They Whether or not it's politically correct to say women's across or men's wrestling isn't bringing in the money over there. Ohio State football. And to a lesser, much lesser extent basketball, But we'll just focus on football. Football basically funds the entire athletic department. If the butter if they're the butter that is on the bread, period end of story. That's the way it works, and that's a good thing there giving those on and I'm not knocking lacrosse players. A wrestler's. That's not what I'm doing when I'm saying is Those programs are grateful because those hardworking student athletes are getting an opportunity to have scholarships to perform at a high level because of what the football team's doing for all those other sports absolutely well and you know, it's all Let's say Told TV money that's really where it comes from.

Forget about it. Forget about it Got to rework that you've got to give him a brand new deal because you don't want anybody come sniffing around trying to like, Hey, we'll give you nine million come over as he was in the NFL.

"I'm like what is happening right now. Like this is insane in it's stick. It's not youtube or instagram. Facebook saw at the time. I was kind of like like sw whatever you know. Nobody cares about tiktok but i think what really kind of got me own me. Any pause was just dear. Just the modern attention and how how much attention funnel tiktok was because asthmatic dockside growing everything else started to grow to visibly just increased across the board and yeah it was nervous man. Like who's wrecking and i. I remember going hitting like a a Non nonessential wall but just going through some sort of a crisis. I said i don't wanna be tiktok star. Like i don't know if i want to be known as like a chai guy. I don't know if i i'm a pastor like i don't that's not. This is what i wanted like do but people know me. Flip this and so initially. I had to have ask all these questions. And i don't know if you know I'm sure do heather thompson day she is a so she is that she's easy to get on a podcast by the way. This is slow you know. She's the she's the blueprint for for twitter from the advocates perspective. Like he's doing like almost forty garrett now on on twitter while she's Yeah she's she's Communicate anyhow so she's going to be my mentor for a long time and i talked to her. I give an oscar some stuff about ministry and communication even before the tiktok things to happen. And so i called her up and i just said i don't know what to do like should i just keep doing this. You know. should. I just quit. Because i don't know if i want to do this and i'm i'm really indebted to her. Because she was she she had gone by a couple of times on twitter and same. So that's why. I called her and she said look. You don't know how god might use these moments them and just keep showing up as long as you are not compromising who you are as long as you're not compromising your identity in jesus as long as you're not doing anything that's that that is inconsistent with your calling like. I don't see what you're doing is wrong. As a matter of fact this is a nerve people. Obviously people one more of this. And you're you're touching a nerve and they want they want stuff from you so maybe adopt your position. from From being like a creator of stuff to now you're serving the audience. You serve your ministering to them and so that really was just kind of like a pivotal moment for me and said you know what. And i prayed to. God is god. I'm gonna keep showing up and now it's kind of a no brainer for me because i see this as ministry like I don't and forty five thousand people on tiktok most of them not add vanished.

"When my mother passed away Shortly thereafter my brother and sister passed away the same week during Christmas. It was like December eleventh and That inspired me to write my book. my book is not a food book. It's a inspirational of overcoming depression and and teaches people how to cope with grief and the book. Everyone thinks I'm food writer. Food is in there to show people how I got through my depression but my book is not a food book and people are surprised when they read it. We have only five stars on You know on the Internet but people thought it was food book when they bought it Is actually an inspirational memoir. I I'm glad you brought that part of the story. I remember reading that when I was researching you thought my goodness what I. I can't even put into words man and emotional prising. The most surprising thing Dan is that the passed away from two totally separate things like my sister had a massive heart attack and then he had brain tumor. No the INTRO brain. Injury Committee passed away from So in the same week within four days. That's a man that is incredibly just incredible in a bad way rabbit obviously incredibly sad and just my goodness so I can. I can completely see how all that loss would send you into a depression. Sununu into a dark place. So is it right bay. Then the story helped you get out of that Writing the book had me I gained sixty pounds writing the book. Because I had to relive it. You know and that's something people don't think about writing the book about. It helped a lot of people had a book signing Barnes and noble in Willow Grove and I had a woman. Come up to me saying wow you know her friend that she had since he was six passed away from cancer at like twenty four years old so it was a lot of people a lot of those sort of the story behind. Everybody's both is on You know interesting but but the actual active. It wasn't necessarily helpful but afterwards it has helped you afterward afterwards. It made me feel good about myself. 'cause I had a lot of people inspired by the book The book was a huge success But writing the book had me relive it and I. It was a very difficult back. Now why do you think it is that we love stories so much then? Is it part of that connection? Is it something else? Why do we love stories? I totally believe that somebody who tells a good story through prince or through mouth you know on radio or whatever I think it it makes it takes you on the journey with them. You're Kinda like there with them. But you know I can tell you a story Be and book form or verbally. It kinda can next the audience with that person And you said it can be verbal can be written. You can tell a story many ways. Yeah what so. What's your favorite Kevin? My favorite is actually in print. We have a podcast now. I enjoy doing the PODCAST. I prefer to write. I think that if you can get the reader there's no bigger accomplishment for me is when I get compliments from readers saying that they loved. You know what I wrote. That's that's actually more fulfilling than me than the emails are show gets from people that love the show interesting and when we say writing is that just through the book or even while no no no no. I do food writing now. I I write for a magazine. Poll I write for magazine. Poll Philly by and I write for my own blog. Philly RESTAURANT REVIEWS DOT COM. And I get a lot of compliments on not only the information I give but I get a lot of compliments on the actual writing. I'm horrible grammar. I'm going to be honest but just I am horrible Grammar Lee. That helps a little bit. Yeah I've had people suggests to me that I invest money in the grammar. We because my grammar so bad but the the the words get across. Yeah Yeah sure. So so just ready. In general not necessarily platform is the act of writing in someone reading the active writing. Okay and I'm one those guys Dan. You're probably saying I wake up for clock in the morning like Billy Joel. Right now hit song. You know what I mean. I'll go. They just say I'm a before but I don't know man that's news that's news. Mars is a little too tempting some dates right. So what is it a? So that's why we in general I. We love stories. That connection Mayday teaches empathy. Whatever it is but I like you said it. But what about you Kevin Wilson? What do you love about the story itself in about telling one I enjoy the journey You know I always try to get a three Three know the beginning middle and end. I try not to right where I go. Beginning to end. I tried to beginning middle and end So and I think that's a skill you know what I mean. I think that's a skill. And when you see it on paper and you get compliments about your writing. I think that is very fulfilling. Because that's a real skill and some people do not have that skill and I think people need to realize that there are people who want to write but they just don't have. I've seen that and is it a skill that we can learn or is it absolutely. Yeah that's my. That's my recommendation for your audience. Start a blog. You know or do something because you can be a terrible writer today and an excellent writer two years from now. You just have to kind of like doing karate you have to train. You know what I mean. It's gotta be worked on. It's gotTa be you know I was just talking about. I noticed sounds weird whether it was talking about a wrestling commentator today. He was horrible back in the eighties when he started today. He's pretty good. You know what I mean you gotta you gotTa Rehearse I guess I like writing like karate you have to do it. Get it working. You have to do it. Yeah if you WANNA win the blackmail you gotta do it and if you do a blog you can get a blog for twenty dollars a month online. You can have your own website and you're right for your own website for twenty bucks. Might think terrible today but who knows what's going to happen to us now Absolutely Makita investing in yourself and reading. A story tells listening to them. So what is one of your biggest challenges them with storytelling Kevin? Oh well. Sometimes your mind gets clouded the NRA. And you've got other things going on and you're trying to like for me. We have two podcasts. I gotta right to show You know sometimes Your brain isn't on one hundred percent that's when the grammar gets bad and that's when I would recommend people to write when they are totally. We're of mine. You know what I mean because that way you're going to be more focused. Don't right 'cause you think you have to right right because you enjoy it and you have the time And when you find yourself drained and not one hundred percent do you. What do you do to recharge? I'll if I'm at four. Am and I do that often. Wake up in the middle of the night and I write and then it's not quicken. I'll just come back to it. You know what I mean if I don't feel like it's you know we're clicking on all cylinders go back no you know full be created. I'll go back to like eight o'clock Do Tired you know absolutely to go live life for a while and come back later. And that's it and then you go when your mind clear. Yeah so do you find yourself looking for inspiration in particular places or is it just something that you do every day to build at inspiration. I do it every day to build it and I am telling your listeners for a fact once you do it for a long time consistently you're going to get to the place you WANNA be. It's like I said it's like karate you WanNa win the Black Vote. You gotTA train Not terrible writers then. I've seen horrible right. I HAVE FRIENDS OF MINE. Are Friends of mine personal friends who tried to write? They just were horrible now after two or three years. They're pretty good. That's awesome and neither of them along the way them. Yeah I did. Yeah I had someone sent me something back in like two thousand thirteen. I said that's the worst thing I've ever read. And then they today. They're they're very successful. Blogger just got your skills And as the person who's on the other side of that of that journey a further down. Let's say man but further down. Don't be afraid to give that feedback and be honest You have to. Yeah and that's another thing. A lot of writers are. I'M GONNA composers writers. I don't get you know that kind of income. You got to encourage them to keep going if you're telling them if you're not honest with them they're gonNA think they're good. And you know what I mean. And they're gonNA think they're at the level that they have to be and they're not and if you're not honest with them they'll never get to that level. You're doing them any favors by just sugarcoat. Anybody favorite yeah not doing anyone favors by that. So do you have a favorite story over the years with the your four hundred fifty restaurant reviews of a favorite moments happened I have a funny moment. You know all all of them are like my children. You know what I mean. I don't have a lot of Abra. That's a lot of kids. I think well I think of them as my children. If you know they're not I you know I have some that I love I i. There's funny stories but I all of them are my favorite. Because I enjoy doing it but I do have a funny story I went into a TACO place. That's close down. Shockingly right one in there When I was doing my blog back in twenty ten and I went in there to blog about it and I got a TACO and I get back to cable and I was like wait a second. The meat is often will say off color. So I says the GUY said I'm not gonna eat that but just so you know the Meat is off color and he looks at me and he goes. That's all our meat. Looks like I'll see you later. What either very directly. So that's all our meat look so they said well. Your beat is not right and I you know like picking on the way home. I should check in with the health department to see. If they're you know how many violations they've had a lot of funny a lot of funny stories right. I don't have a favorite you know story because I think of them all the saying. So as a as a few food reviewer as a critic as someone who kind of holds a little bit of power in their hands when it comes to the livelihood of these restaurants and food carts have you ever come up against someone who is turned that back against you can imagine. Every review is perfect. I'll tell you what I'm glad you asked that question. There's a place in the MANIOC section in Philly It's a pizza place and this is one of the things that inspired me to start my own website. I went in there and this is a very true story. And it's unbelievable. When you think about it. Today I went in there. I gave him a bad review exam like the food right so I can physically prove that. They harassed me about.

"Better story and contact information for me if you WANNA connect described there as well via email and get updates every month on. What's going on with the show so speaking of the show? Let's get to it shall we? Kevin Wilson one of the first people to bring the dining on a dime idea to the Philadelphia area for his restaurant blog. Website back in two thousand eleven which he started actually doesn't ten so as you listen to this and twenty twenty ten years ago. He was beginning to blog about restaurant reviews when nobody else was yelp was big but that wasn't blogging. Wasn't a thing I mean it was but you know Kevin was the first one to do it. So huge success on the website. He was asked to bring this idea to a weekly radio segment after he saw popular. That was brought it into wildfire radio.

He's a retired I believe Army veteran how is your role old. Different when you're dealing with folks who Kinda don't know the conventions of acting Sean. Baker made them very comfortable made a world that they could live in and There wasn't a lot of pressure to perform I'd say for them so they were very relaxed and Lebanon life and there's a sort of truth and clarity and practicality to what they're doing they aren't swinging for the fences they're not try and deliver a big performance. The kids are just having fun and The adults are just trying to make the scenes make sense to them. mm-hmm so there's a practicality to that so that's beautiful and you hop on that you kinda get over yourself and Daiichi leave that actor ego behind and you you try to contribute to that world and be in the world. You grew up in Wisconsin to a a really big family right. Dad was an attractor. Mom was a nurse you went to the University of Wisconsin and briefly made your way to New York and and Co founded an experimental theater called the wooster group which ended up being something you were involved in for decades right right for like twenty seven years and to be fair fair. I I didn't actually co It really existed. It grew out of a company called the performance group. I so technically speaking. I'm I'm not a founder but I'm one of the earliest members. How did you get from theater to film You know I think the most significant thing was a it. People would see me at the theater. Initially because I didn't have a manager I didn't have an agent and it was a downtown of God theater so it it didn't have the the same kind of aspirations and ambitions that most you know actors working off Broadway or off off Broadway. Had it defied that categorisation. It was that thing by itself. It was A. It was a community theater for that community but the community happened to be so how in the East village in time that there was a lot of Cross fertilization that a lot of great music convention a lot of Independent film a lot of No dance and theatre so it was a very Fertile time you got into around nineteen eighty and it seems like it went quite quite well by nineteen eighty-five your have a leading role in to live and die in la which was a great action film And you know all actors. Besides the skill skill they bring bring their physical characteristics you know their build their ethnicity their face. You have a distinct face. I think a lot of people say I'm wondering as you did started doing auditions. How did you think you were perceived? For what kind of roles did you fit in well. It was clear you know it's when you do something that few people respond to what they want you to do it again. So then they attribute the attributes of your character talk to you so I played a lot of kind of dark characters kind of villainous characters so in the beginning I guess I was very conscious that they were casting mate as villains. You know as a good bad guy and I you know. I've found that fun for a little while but then I I was on guard and You know didn't want to be required to go to the same well all the time I wanted. Not that Versatility is you know the end all to acting but I just felt like it was a little restrictive. There are beautiful villain roles does but some of them are written very shallow. Laying are just really devices for the most interesting parts of the store to happen right. We'll eighty six. You did platoon that earned you your first Oscar nomination And I gather probably opened up a lot of other roles for you didn't it it. Did the irony was I. Remember this very well It was a period of you know a lot of people making proposals to me but whether it was timing or whatever or I just didn't find the right project for almost a year so you get attention because you're lifted out of the pack for a moment because when you do get a nomination the nation at shines a light on you particularly if if you're not well known so it was a it was a big leap in You you know career wise I suppose but it was funny that I couldn't find the right Piece to do for like a year and then finally when I did find and something a very interesting script with a A new director It was Vietnam thing like the worst. You know they talk about repeating yourself on paper. It was a terrible thing to you. Know to follow platoon with but Very different often kind of movie but it was a film called off limits and it was studio film at Fox and That was the next thing I did and it was very difficult difficult because I think it without judging the movie because some people really love that movie It wasn't a big success. I don't think and and it came in under one regime and the neck. Nauseating really wanted to kill it. So it was my first experience of being in the studio Film where where there were some studio politics at play so the director was always fighting with production and it was a difficult time. And that was what's the follow up to This beautiful experience platoon There were pledges in but it was tough and then I thought wow I gotta rethink this so I went back as I always did Went Back to theatre thought. Rally better dig in here. I don't know about this film stuff and then I was teaching in With the company doing workshops at a university in Massachusetts and it was summertime and staying at a very modest bed and breakfast and I got a call Monday. Martin Scorsese wants to see you. Oh can I said cool. What about they said? Well this last temptation of Christ which I had heard about but I had never gone in on everybody in their mother went in on this movie but not not me and I thought really what role my agent says it. Jesus so Um yeah well if you want to break out of playing villains. I guess that's going it is it is And I thought it was strange. I thought really. And then I read the script and it made sense to me Because the nature of how the story is told in an exploration of the Hillman and part of this divine character so Yeah I hopped on board and that that kind of slap me out of the You know builders area doldrums Willem Defoe.

"Close enough that we sense each other as they are in the new novel the father and stepmother of the children who catch on fire when they get upset the children who spontaneously Ashley combust the parents send them to boarding school like let the professionals handle them. We can't deal with it. That's especially true because you know the father other as a senator who thinks he's about to be nominated to be secretary of state he's going to go through the vetting process molesting he needs is like kids set themselves on fire. This is a terrifying terrifying thought and I think the whole idea to you of like sending children to be raised by professionals are having this utopian community where parents kind of share and the child raising. Something you've thought about a lot because it's it's reflected in other books so you've written to did you have that fear like when you became apparent like I'm not GonNa do good enough job. Is there a doctor. Is there a school so like somebody who could do this right for me. Yeah I mean I think after we had our first child My wife Lianne who is gifted in every way that I'm not with children. She so intuitive you've and so wonderful Doesn't worry in the same way that I do but we remember we. My parents were watching griff and we went out to dinner. It was a rare night to two of us. And I said I'm thinking about this new book and it's I kind of had been thinking about i. I just wish we could send our child all to a place where professionals experts would raise him and And he would get everything that he needed And he would be the stronger better person at the end of it and the and said well what what would we do the whole time that was happening and said Oh all right okay and I was like maybe we could be there to. Maybe we could be part of it. and we would learn as well and and there's something to my mind that even though I am I love isolation `isolation and I needed small communities where we all make each other stronger is appealing to me in theory. This idea that if we all come together some of that anxiety will be lessened. Because we're all working towards this common goal. Can you describe the perfect world you tried to create in your novel perfect world. Yeah so Dr this Dr Grind. He he comes up with this idea that if he can get ten families ten couples who are all about to have a child eld and he can raise them and they can all live together in this compound. It's a kind of scientific commune Everyone's working towards the skull and none of the the children know who their actual parent is to to them. All nineteen Because the main character is coming without a partner all nineteen of those adults adults are the children's parents And so what would it be like if you had to pretend that your child in some ways was just one of your of your ten children. Dron in what would it be like to be a child and understand that you had not to parents but nineteen doesn't go. Well all I mean that's the thing that's the kind of thing about community right is that we have the best intentions. But but then we're human and the minute are weirdnesses touch other weirdnesses. Things is get complicated. never be anything other than messy. How were you raised wonderfully I had the the most wonderful parents you could ever ask for They supported me in everything that I wanted to do. We lived a close isolated life. My sister is younger than me. By four years ears but in many ways she protected me and took care of me and watched out for me. She's also incredibly capable. But I think the thing that really is is that you know as I needed help and as my parents you know living in Winchester Tennessee like when I was in high school and I was like I need help. They they drove me an hour and a half to Nashville to see a therapist. You know they. They knew that I needed something. And they were GonNa help me figure that out and sometimes I think what was necessary and why I survived. My childhood was because even though I wanted to keep everything hidden I also knew that whatever said my parents would accept it. They would figure out how how to work with me and they also were really wonderful because they loved art to And they exposed us to weirdness. It was such an interesting wonderful household to be in. They let us like. I remember being six years old and listening to Richard Pryor albums Six seinfeld Alabama House. A Kid Eddie Murphy they really loved humor and the cadence of humor They appreciated and so a lot of times. I think we we liked to make each other laugh. We'd like to come up with that. Weirdness that would kind of spark in the other person and so it was just the four of us in our house and we would tell stories my parents when I was very young made With the Super Eight Camera Stop Motion Animated Star Wars Movies with me. They were just game for anything. And when I told my my dad I remember we were. I was mowing the grass and we were sitting on the bed of his truck and I said I think I wanna be a writer. I was in college. I said I think I'm going to try to do this. And that's probably the the worst thing you can tell your parents that you wanna be a writer And he was just like yeah. This makes perfect sense. You should do it. There was never a moment that they hesitated when I wanted to kind of make something. Was it helpful to see a lot of comics when you were young. who had unusual thoughts or strange experiences? buser str- strange. You know emotions that felt strange to them and talking about it and making it funny. Did you find that reassuring. Yeah I mean you could see what they were doing was trying to figure out their obsessions. And then how to make those understandable to an audience and one of the easiest ways to make strangeness understandable is is Bye. Bye Bye humor to my mind That if you can make it approachable and understandable in that funny way then you can hit them with the darkness as you move. Move Forward So so that's kind of What I learned from from Comedians? It's not something I'd WanNa do. It seems like the worst job in the world But I always appreciate it. I love the rhythm of how they built those narratives. How they would have those call backs on there is just it's it's VIRTUOSIC can I ask what your parents did professionally. Yeah my dad sold insurance. My mom was a nurse Until she had us and then she raised us My family was always our number. One priority was always each other around each other all the time air parents still alive. They are yup. I They they live in the same town that I do that so nice. Yeah and do they read your novels. I know that My Dad does he was when I I I said I wanted to be a writer. I gave him some stories I had written and they were weird But he loved them and He was so supportive and he is the one you no that that reads my work for sure and I know my mom and my sister do too but I think my dad Is the one who seems most fully invested in it as a way to kind of understand me and when he read this nothing to see here he was like. This is my favorite which Meant something to me Because he's read me since I was seventeen years old so I felt like if I could please him than than maybe I was onto something. What Kevin Wilson has been great to talk with you? Thank you so much I really appreciate it. Thank you for having me. Kevin Wilson's new novel is called nothing to see here.

"You're concerned that you've passed on some of your problems to your oldest son. You were diagnosed as an adult with Theresa Syndrome. Yeah and You know I've always had this kind of agitation agitation and looping thoughts and and small ticks and finally as an adult neurologist. I think I think you might have threats and and again it wasn't isn't how it was portrayed on TV or in book. So I didn't fully believe that but I wanted to get better. So that's what I accepted. cletus in and around here and say the way. It's portrayed on. TB maybe as You keep say things that you ordinarily wouldn't say and some of those things are very like insulting and it shows what's going on your brain other people would censor but you adjust like shouted out but that's not what you have right. I mean mine is so much more internal Those those images in looping ticks are in my my head and so a lot of the work that I'm doing is just keeping it in there And so you know. Once I realized this We were also thinking about having kids and a new We wanted them. But I also wasn't sure how to take care of them and and I knew one of the things I was worried about was genetically. What am I passing on to my children what am I responsible? Danceable for with them and my boys they're eleven and seven and griff certainly has Shown issues of anxiety and that became a huge worry but but frankly I think maybe I was a little self important like I thought. Oh you know I'm GonNa Ruin my children but I think maybe my children won't let me ruin them. They're they're tougher and more stable than maybe I had imagined their incredible and wild elden weird But you know that that initial worry like Oh God you have a kid you just ruin them. Starts to fall away as the children learn. Learn how to survive without you And have their own will. You can't necessarily shape. Yeah and then it becomes scary in a different way. Yeah I like you and then you realize that they're they're not you at all and then that's terrifying because then how are you going to keep them close to well. I read an article about you when we were talking about how When your son was young he wouldn't eat and you were afraid like I mean you need to eat to stay alive? And he just wouldn't eat new is obviously very afraid of something but he wouldn't tell you what he was afraid of. Can you talk about what it was like to handle that. Yeah I mean he you know griff would have what he would say bad thoughts. You know. I'm having these kinds of stressful strange thoughts which he didn't want to tell us about and and I I understood that clearly because that's how my brain works to You know my brain doesn't care if I want to think about it or not. It gives me what it gives me and so those those moments can be stressful. That you you don't WANNA eat You don't WanNa communicate you WANNA YOU WANNA move inside of yourself to protect yourself And so when I saw that happening with Griff I both understood it very clearly but I also understood that whatever is inside of him is is is mysterious to me. It's it's not exactly the same no matter how much I think it might be But yeah it was it. was that initial worry. That oh this is me This is me all over again. mm-hmm what were your fears when you had when you were terrified as a kid but wouldn't tell anyone. Yeah I mean there were mostly League These kind of repeating images of of of doom of danger of And it wasn't always me but but falling off of tall buildings getting stabbed Catching on fire. They were these quick kind of violent bursts in my head And I have to say like my family is is incredible. They they were. We were as close as we could be I mean like every Friday night were teenagers. My sister and I would play Canasta with my parents. France we were we were just always with each other But there was still this kind of hidden part of me that I didn't want to talk about because I was certain that once it it kind of injured the open air would change everything. How how would it change everything Because if I said I have this darkness inside of me it might Kind of destroy the kind of wonderful life that we had all built together That I would be the reason that it started to become uncomplicated. That my education would cause anxiety for them You know and of course I think they easily could handle they loved me and still love me But when you're a kid you're not certain right you don't know what's the tipping point So I so I hit my.

Nothing to see here is about a twenty eight year old woman who gets a job taking care of twin ten year olds with a bizarre hard disorder when they are frightened or angry they burst into flames. Family is the subject Wilson most often writes about when he was a child. He I was terrified by the alarming images that would loop around his brain as an adult. He was diagnosed with Theresa Syndrome. Which helped explain those alarming images? You said that you live in your head. And I'm wondering how the two rats affects your life as a writer and if it affects your your need to right. Yeah I mean I think from a young age. I always had narrative in my head. There were these images in ideas. I loop belie And when I read read or see things that I like I tend to watch them again and again So that I can kind of Memorize the sound of it. And so that that can kind of stay inside my head Ed And it wasn't until like college really that I realized Oh these are narratives. These are stories and and there's a way that You know part of the problem was they were in my head for so long that They started to repeat and get weirder and weirder and there was a point where I thought if I can just put this on paper I am I have some control over it And I thought Oh it'll get rid of it and it doesn't quite do that but it allows me this way to kind of control in deal with those images images so so writing. Is I think the thing that saved me Being able to transfer what was in my head onto the page. And then there's this freedom that once once it hits the open air once it goes out into the world and you publish it. You're kind of free of it for a little while. At least it's somebody else's problem like me the reader inflicting these weird things on the reader. So I don't have to deal with them. Since you say that you live in your head. What do you do about the rest of your body like do you? Do you work out you care about the rest of your body. I don't take good care of it. That's for sure no I like to walk the walk with the kids My son will put put on an audio book. And I'll put on an audio book and we walked side by side and I can feel the closeness of him to me and just keep walking. We keep moving And and as we do that. We're listening to these narratives. That can kind of take the place of whatever's in our head and it's really calming and wonderful But most of the time. I'm trying to make my spaces smallest possible. I'm trying to keep my body as tightly contained as it can be So that is protected So I don't like to leave the house and I will and I can do it But the happiest is when it's it's it's just me and my family And we're.

The Family Fang. The parents are performance artists. Who make their children be part of the act in Wilson's new novel? Nothing to see here a twenty eight year old single woman. Lillian is asked to take care of two ten in your old twins. She's warned that they have a unique affliction when they are frightened or angry they burst into flames. The flames don't damage the Children Gordon but the fire can spread and burn the people and things around them. The novel is partly inspired by Kevin. Wilson felt as a child when he couldn't control all the terrifying images that flash through his mind when he was an adult. He was diagnosed with Theresa Syndrome in the novel. The person who asked Lillian to take take care of the twins is Lily's former prep school roommate. Madison Lillian couldn't afford the tuition but she had a scholarship. Madison was from a wealthy family. The and has since married. Jasper senator on the verge of being nominated to serve. As Secretary of state. The twins are children from his previous marriage. Their mother has just died so the twins are coming to live with Jasper and Madison. Who See these combustible children as a burden and a threat to Jasper's political critical career gain Wilson? Welcome to fresh air. So I'd like you to start with a reading where Lillian for the first time witnesses. Their children catching on fire place. This section in context for us and describe if you will what sets the children off sure so Lillian has brought the two children Bessie enrolling Colin to meet Jasper and Madison And there's another man Carl who is a handler for the family. Who's also they are and the children have been estranged from their father? Jasper for several years and simply the sight of him sort of agitates them and and kind of starts off this process. Smoke started started coming off the children. They're cheap clothes now. Singed Oh Madison said and everyone was just standing there not doing anything while these children increase as the intensity of the fire that was inside them. That's what it seemed like like. The fire was inside them. Children made a fire and I knew it would get worse. I if something didn't happen to stop it Madison and Jasper seemed stunned and Carl's only concern was keeping Jasper from getting burned. I took off my mu which so easy to remove by the way and then I used it to cover. My hands and gently lowered the children to a squatting position on the ground. Hey bessie bessie calmed down now. Okay she she was rigid and so is rolling but the fire was just rolling across them. Yellow and red like what you draw with a limited supply of crayons. Can you turn it off. I asked almost whispering but they weren't listening. So then I started smothering the flames with the MU which caused it to smolder and spark a padded the children all over their arms their backs on top of their little heads. I went pat. Pat Pat Pat Pat and kept whispering. It's okay it's okay. It's okay I could feel the heat but I just kept lightly tapping them mm-hmm and the fire seemed to finally die out as if they had been holding their breath the entire time. bessie enroll in each took in a deep gulp of air and then side suddenly sleepy. I leaned against them. And they kind of slumped onto me and Carl finally ran over in scoop them both up one in each arm and put them back in the van. Gently closing adores. That's given Wilson ruining a section of his new novel. Nothing to see here. Where does the image of children expressing their anger or their fear their attempt to protect themselves as catching on fire? I mean in a way. It's almost like a Tantrum. And we all understand children's tantrums. We are witnessed them or you know experience them but why this image of catching fire. I mean for me. It starts when when I was a child when I was probably nine or ten years old I was obsessed with these commercials on. TV for the time life. Mysteries of the unknown set of books which you could order? And I wanted him so badly but they were very expensive in my parents were were never going to order something over the phone But I had a friend my my best friend Tony Pacheco had them and I would go over to his house and read them and I was obsessed with them and there was this really small section Maybe even just a panel on spontaneous in human combustion and the moment I saw it and understood that possibility just locked into my brain forever I thought about it a lot This kind of reoccurring image in my head of people bursting into flames and I was an anxious kid and ahead of this agitation inside side of me and so it made sense that I just assumed I might burst into flames it seemed entirely possible And then as I got older older and became a teenager in my anxiety kind of became more understandable I kind of wanted to burst into flames. Like that would a burn out all the anxiety inside of me and I become clean so I just kind of wanted that And so it just kind of repeated in my head over and over again until I decided I've gotta write about it and like you said with knowing children. I have two little boys and I think children when they have tantrums or even when they're agitated they they look like they're gonNA combust. It's entirely possible to me that my boys might burst into flames. I think my mother when things get out of hand and the kids or the cousins for it getting too excited. Say they're getting overheated. It's true and even my son Griff who when he gets anxious he feels it all in his ears as a heat in he'll just dunk his head in water and to me that was like yes that makes perfect sense. That's that's what I would do to tell me what it said in about about spontaneous combustion. Why humans spontaneous combustion? Yeah I mean the important thing about a spontaneous human combustion. Is that that you die. You know in the burst into flames in the flame. Works on the fat in your body and you burn down And a lot of times that so self contained that like even the chair that you're sitting in is is kind of untouched untouched But that was not interesting to me. I didn't WanNA burst into flames and die. I wanted. I wanted to burst into flames over and over again as many times as I needed to So once I understood the mystery of it I thought that's not mysterious enough. I want more than that. I needed to happen again. And again we have the kind of opposite assist. The children who burst into flames are not harmed by the flames. But people around them could do. They can burn the house down. They can burn a tree down. Yeah I mean that's for me. How agitation and anger and tantrums work? I mean it may be affecting you internally. But it's the external world that it really affects that disrupts. So question in the book is like weird of this children. Get this crazy. Ability is it inherited and if so is it the mother or the father who passed on this like strange power and I know that's been an issue for you because.

"As he spoke about it he said he hasn't really gotten over it and he's somebody that wants to prove not to him sell for not you know really for this university he wants to show that he can do this for this often said for his teammates that's where kevin wilson coming in from indiana bringing that skillset from the tempo standpoint of being able to call plays quickly being able to get him into that rhythm jt beer at that he craves really kind of what we saw in two thousand fourteen when things were going really well for him he was able to make throws quickly he was not searching for a receiver to be opened necessarily all the time just trusting himself trusting his receivers making some of those contested throws that's what kevin wilson and quarterbacks coach ryan day bring to the table with really developing that confidence and jt barrett and i was just talking with ryan day by the way he told me that he feels like coaching jt barrett is like coaching appro because he's been around so long and had so much experience it's not as much worrying about that side of things it's more about the footwork in the techniques something they've really worked on you talk about last season's game as an athlete you don't really get over those kind of games they stay with you for the rest of your career basically yo you'll have that you'll remember those days but you know you have to move oranje in you learn that you continue to compete with your colleague day t barrett you get another crack at it and so you get a chance to come into this season with a new coaching staff as far as the offense is concerned you're learning a new offense and and you just want this season to get started in that way once you get into the first game you're on a brand new path to something new and then it really puts that behind what that'll stick with you and you use it is motivation uh you use those feelings you had at the end of that game an enduring that game as motivation as you move forward in opening up with in the anna a chance the blow a team out with going in with kevin wilson offense then you'll they should be to put that far behind him.
