"Is the title of Brandon Taylor's new short story collection that explores human desires for connection, even violence and the tension it creates in relationships between lovers, friends. Strangers. A New York Times Review by John Paul Brammer describes it is making quote human contact seemed like a thrilling horror story. As such, it speaks to both the anxiety and allure. Of getting back out there. Brandon Taylor. Welcome to Forum. Thank you so much for having me really glad to have you and that Brammer quote Brammer, speaking to either the thrill or trepidation that people are feeling these days about emerging from the pandemic and having more social contact. And it made me wonder. Did you in did the past year? Did it figure into your writing of your stories for filthy animals at all? Or was that all done by by before the pandemic? So the the actual drafting process was done, but I was revising it while we were all sort of hunkering down at home, and, um, while I myself was sort of grappling with some personal health crises precipitated by the pandemic, and so all of that anxiety and and fear and uncertainty, Certainly I think, you know, bled into the stories as I was revising them and changing them so Yeah, absolutely. Well, well, I'm sorry to hear about your personal health crisis, but I must say, you certainly do capture Character like Lionel in that first story of your book, who feels both incredibly vulnerable about going to a social gathering but is also at the same time lonely and wants to be around people. And I was wondering if you wouldn't mind just reading that first page of your book for us. Would be a pleasure. Lionel had been out of the hospital for only a few days when the potluck invitation came. Host lived in the first floor apartment of a near East Side duplex, separated by a tiny coldest back from the wide bottom cottages that fronted Lake Monona. Noise of an undifferentiated party variety drifted out into the deep blue cold meeting Lionel under the sun room window, where he had stopped appear inside. He felt powerfully anonymous out there in the dark, looking in on all of them. He's just standing out there. I think we are. I think we all have had that moment where it's like. Do I really want to go into this party with all these people? Yes, even though I'm standing out there in this cold and and it is incredible in reading that first story called potluck, how much There is in that tension and how deep you get into it. Like you almost feel like you have to look away from Lionel and spare him from your gaze because it's so intense in terms of revealing his emotions. And you know, one of our producers is a huge fan of yours and just has been wondering about the precision with which you write and how much of the way you do character. The way you do metaphor the way you describe scenes just kind of pours out of you, or is it You know, like a stroke of, I guess inspiration Or is it something that you really work over and over again to get to a very specific description? I think it's I think it's a little bit of both. I think that the initial you know the that the first flush of drafting always seems like it comes in a torrent for me, you know, and so I'll get the initial sort of starting conditions of it. But it's really only through revision that I feel like I get to go back in there and peel away the layers and sort of work it layer by layer to to work increasingly towards something really particular. And specific, you know, like it's not enough to just leave it as he was a little nervous to go to a potluck, but really, to figure out why this particular character is nervous and anxious about this particular gathering at this moment in his life, and you know it's it's you know, a character standing outside of a potluck does You know, it's like a really interesting start for a story. But my goal and revision is always to work towards the specific in the particular and I think that that's where the real resonance in literature comes from is when the writing takes you into a very specific Subjectivity. Yeah, In speaking about working things. I read tweets of yours that you said you worked on the titular story. Filthy animals over the course of five years that you were nervous about. Releasing it, and I was wondering if you could tell us, um, what that story is about and why you were nervous? Oh, yes, certainly. So the titular story, Filthy animals is about a group of young friends and Birmingham, Alabama suburb and one of the characters. It's his birthday, and he and his closest friend decide that they're going to go out. You know, on a on a week end night and get into some trouble to celebrate the birthday, and what the main character hasn't revealed to his friends is that his parents are about to send him. To a boot camp in Idaho. And that's all very nerve wracking for him, as he's also trying to grapple with, you know, his romantic and sexual attraction to his close male friends and what that means for him and stuff like that. And I was nervous about that story because The characters get into a great deal of trouble, You know, like they, they they end up fighting. And there's all this stuff all this violence in that story, and it was just a complicated line to thread because some of the characters have done some, like truly awful, monstrous things. And it was just hard to get that right, like it was so hard to figure out like Am I condoning this by writing it am I am I, you know, making this other characters suffered just to be a plot line and someone else's life and my honoring all the characters and their humanity, and I didn't have any easy answers for that, And it took me a long time to figure out The moral framework of that story and to figure out what it was I was trying to do and trying to say, But yeah, I was soon nervous. So nervous. Yeah. How you ended that twitter thread I believe with By saying that the moral center of a story changes as you change. I mean, where did you ultimately land on that? I guess I'm also curious, maybe at the beginning of the five years. If the draft looked remarkably different in terms of that question, right of the violence and how you how you deal with it through the characters to now. Yeah, totally dead. You know that. I think that the moral center of that story When I first wrote it. The moral center was very much this. You know this idea that the main character is in love with his best friend, and like he finds out something that the best friend did. That was like really bad and evil and crime and he's got a like Figure it out. And so the tragedy of that story used to be that this guy he loved had done a bad thing. And now he can't love him as much anymore. And I was like, Okay, But like, what about the victim of these characters cry, You know, like, what about the person who has to pay the moral price for For what that character did to them. And so then I thought, Okay, That's a really simplistic view. It's not a very, you know, robust moral vision, like the tragedy of this story. Can't just be that the guy he loved this kind of tarnished Now there's something there must be some deeper. More human question at work in this story, and it just took a long time to figure out what that wasn't for me. It's really this question of All of these characters have been have been affected by the strict, patriarchal society in which they've been raised. And the real tragedy of that story that those characters it's the only life they've ever known and They come to realize like, Oh, what I've been given is maybe not enough to live on like what I've been given is not this great, beautiful world but something small and and crooked and damaged And how do we go on? Once we realized that and so it was just figuring out like what The real set of questions were, But I'm sure I'm going to look at this story in two years and be like, Oh, no, that wasn't it. It's this other thing. Well, as you say the center changes as we change. Well, I want to invite our listeners to join the conversation. What do you want to ask writer Brandon Taylor.

"Invested in and electric vehicles for all is well. So You're running for State assembly. I love the enthusiasm and the patch of that you bring and, ah If you're elected when you show up The world you're entering is a Republican dominated one. Ah, there we have a democratic governor. But the state Legislature, and certainly the assembly will have a Republican majority. Yes. Ah, no matter who is elected on 2021. So how what's the action plan of figuring out how to actually Achieve progress and move forward on your vision for the state. Yeah, you know, like I mentioned with my work with Mom's fan action. I've already started building relationships with legislators at the capital. And I've met with Republican legislators and found ways to frame the issues in a way that they care about and ah, helping to see that By passing legislation. We can accomplish the same goals and tried to encourage people to see it in that light. And so you know, I've I've also organized like with Mom's man action to find al a constituent's across the state to show up at public hearings to make sure that their voices are heard by their legislators in those communities, and so I think that's really important to try to Um, mobilized around the state and be putting pressure in areas where we can find allies. You know, there are Republicans that do agree like I mentioned with Some of the gun violence prevention laws, But they're Republican leadership does not see it that way, so we need to continue. Building a coalition and finding anybody who's willing to support it. And then you know, ultimately The the job of whoever ends up winning the seat is to work really hard to get from the minority into the majority. And so I've done that work already by traveling around the state, and I've knocked doors for candidates and walks. Ah and over in Darlington and and Lodi and It's really a critical part of the job is working to make sure that we're able to flip seats and get into the majority. And also you're helping on the ground as well as with fundraising, too. We're talking right now with Heather Driscoll. She's one of the candidates running for Wisconsin State Assembly. Ah, for District 76. Eastside downtown, a little bit of the West side of Madison, replacing outgoing state representative Chris Taylor. Heather. I mean, you just walked into the next question. I love it when you talked about, you know, really. Part of the role of this of of The representative from this district because it's such a, you know, involved and progressive district is Teo is to take that and spread it across the state. Can you tell us a little more about how do you use the leverage of the power of You know this district to translate to success statewide. Yeah, I think you know. It's like I mentioned getting out of Madison and getting on the ground and spending that time when I'm not in legislative session. It's important that I'm spending all that time. I can On the ground, helping other candidates and Throwing fundraisers and making phone calls and doing everything I can to support them, and, you know, it's really critical this fall that we make sure that we prevent a supermajority from happening because you know the supermajority happens with the Republicans. The governor loses veto power with with the maps, and that's Something that is absolutely essential that we need to work for fair baps and fighting for an independent commission. Tio redraw the the boundaries of the district's s so we can make it Where people are able to be represented in a fair way, because right now, you know, we see a very unfair balance across the state in the way the district's are drawn. Since I would be a strong advocate for pushing for this fair maps. So then, hopefully you know, in 2022 will have an even better chance of winning back seats. Talk to me about, Um, your district is very race conscious and involved in racial justice issues. There's been Great police shootings in your neighborhood and police killings it locally and Madison have happened in this district. Ah, lot of involvement in reaction to the murder of George Floyd, 20 Robinson all these different issues. How does that shape the The Needs and desires of the constituents of this district. And how does that shape how you represent them? Yeah, I think it's really critical to be looking at everything through that lens of racial equity and how each piece of legislation will impact the community. And so you know, I've I've worked with The safe schools Coalition with freedom, ink for the last year and 1/2 on, uh We're moving, getting the police removed from the schools and advocating for investing in youth instead of policing them. And I showed up. You know several times at school board meetings to testify in support of removing the police. And so we need to think outside the box where it's not a situation where we have police and their safety in schools or removed the police. And then the school's Aeryn safe. You know what? What we've seen from statistics with police, is that Down. You know a lot of peace. People want them there because of school shootings that have happened in the past. But the vast majority of the data shows that that's just not the case where they could prevent a school shooting from happening. So you know to me the the impacts that they have, you know, are much There's much more negative consequences to having the police there. And so I think we need to find a way to make make sure that the Children are safe and schools and the best way to do that is to increase funding for mental health professionals and make sure that we meet the value guys signs of having for every 250 students. Having professionals in the middle healthcare that are able to support them. And instead of police how how about the services that the students need? Absolutely. So these issues that we're talking about mean these air so important and so core, Teo you know the state state representation, but Despite all the seriousness and the importance of these issues there, I have a level of hope we you and I were talking before the show started about how there's so many individuals that are interested in running for this seat. You and many others are. You know the idea that Democracy is something you want to be. A part of the state assembly is a place that you want to be that you can see changes happening. Talked to me about. You know that hope I you seeing that in the district are you? Are you seeing when you Go across the district and are able to connect with people Are you? Are you hearing people excited about the thought of change that could happen on the state level. I am. You know, I do Feel hopeful. Yeah, Despite the challenges that we're up against, I think From what I've seen, especially your past in the past couple of months. Ah, three organization that's happening in this opportunity to re imagine our systems and to make change, and I feel I feel a sense of hope that People showing up you know, the more we show up and the more we come together and rise up, we can make change. We talk before the show too. About your your bike right across the district. This district really includes right Lake Monona Make Lake Mendota.

"The nation. He's been serving for 64 years, first in the Wisconsin Assembly and then the Wisconsin Senate. And there is a Healthy race to replace him. Seven Democrats have filed paperwork to be on the ballot. And today we are speaking with one of those candidates. Amani Vladimir Burris's on the phone with us. Hello, Melanie, are you there? Oh, hi. There settled. How are you? I am. I'm doing okay. How are you doing these days? Oh, my goodness. I am busy. Busy, busy working like a dog sunup to sundown that we're going to get this done. I'm very excited to be running of. First of all I want to say thank you so much for having me and hosting me and I really am honored to be ah, replacing Ah, running to replace Fred Risser. He has done his job. Like many of those People that have done things before before us, and I'm hoping that I'll get this done and we will make some changes Come about. Well and let me remind everyone the district It's really the beating heart of Madison and includes downtown Madison, the University of Wisconsin, Much of the west side of Madison West, a memorial high school's West ham, all short villages out past the belt line on then it crosses over to the east side of Madison, Willy Street and then the south Side of Mass and Park Street. Lake Monona like wing gra S o. Much of what really is the heart. The core of Madison is part of this district. What was you won't What was part of your decision making process when you decided Tio big candidate for this seat? Yes. So I mean, I was raised by a mom that started her her career. Well, actually, she started her Korea's faster. But when she landed in Madison, she got into politics. She was the first black woman in the state of Wisconsin Thatwas Ah! On an elected school board elected to the school board. And so I I was thinking I will never do politics. But I realized ah, in this process as I I grew up in life that that is the room where it happens, and that's not just some Hamilton. But that is our lives our political white in politics, so I realized Ah, that had a role to play. My mom was Malaysia Kasha Nana that published Umoja magazine. And I was also raised by my father, who eyes the conductor and professor James Vladimer, and he was also the first person of color to work in the music department. So I have a high bar to to live up to you. You have this amazing, amazing legacy and and childhood in Madison. I'm sure filled with All the good and the bad the Madison has to offer. I wanted to sort of start. I want to break all that down, but but to start a little bit on the fact that Your mother was one of the elected leaders in Madison. And to hear you your story of being with her and your first thought of God. Politics isn't for me. This is something I never want to do. And now, here you are, That's so Tell us about that and the whole fullness of that, Because, you know, I'm on the county board. I've been there for more than a decade, and sometimes I see my daughters and they say God politics what a giant mess and and you didn't say what a giant mess. You saw the mess but said, But it's for me and I can be part of this system. Yes. So after I went to an experience that I no matter how life changing experience that just absolutely changed my life and with all the connections and like all the work that my parents had done, I still couldn't quite get it solved the way that it needed to be solved. I started looking for the room. I felt looking for the room where it happened. I said, I have to. I can't just put this on the shelf and go somewhere else. I had $4.2 million in property and ended up living at Super eight. In the 2008 Great Depression or recession. Excuse me, and that is that started me on my journey. Not only from a you know we've got to do something different point of view, but that really helped me. To have to see.

"You right now so with that what is the game plan here I've been calling it make America miserable again I think that's what the Democrats are planning that's what the Democrats are hoping for that's what they're doing you have some of the most absurd and insane things imaginal being set now on a regular basis from people who are clearly in opposition not just to the police now but to our way of life to how we go about pretty much everything in modern America they have a complaint they have a problem with everything they don't like our statues that unlike the words we use they certainly don't like our politics and ideology and they are in an all out effort to do everything they can to make as many people miserable as possible in the country so that Joe Biden that's right the guy who can't be bothered to come out of the bunker Joe Biden himself will be the savior of all of this that's what we're being told and just at a time when I'm starting to see even some leftists it's not that they oppose the tactics being used it's not that they're bothered by the rioting and the looting and all these things now that's their shock troop contingent of the Democrat party that's what that is so they're they're fine with the overall approach of antifa of BLM of of all these different groups out there that are not just organizing and mobilizing but also threatening coercing and destroy now the promenade at the issue they're having now is that some of the targets that are being attacked no one can understand how anybody would ever think that this is a good idea that this is justifiable even leftists have to say well hold hold on a second I mean last night in Madison Wisconsin yeah there were there were riots in Madison and in Milwaukee but at Madison Wisconsin they had people tearing down statues including a statue of Hans Christian Hey who is a colonel in the Union Army died fighting to destroy the confederacy and the slavery but the confederacy was fighting for this guy was a an ardent abolitionist and they cut off the head of the statue and dumped it in lake Monona this was up in Wisconsin this is this is what they say is necessary to move us forward abolitionists have the heads of their statues chopped off now by this insane mob there was even a a statue of the seven foot forward status is outside the state capitol in Wisconsin and this was created as a symbol of progress by a female artist in Wisconsin over or almost a hundred and thirty years ago they destroyed that to so they are destroying works of art they are destroying symbols and they're even destroying symbols that the left up until this point didn't have any problem with now part of this is ignorance today I'm seeing a lot of the live journal commentary types we're saying what's wrong with you know you think calling us of the French Revolution as an epithet the French revolution was all about democracy and American style turning against tyranny apparently they didn't read the rest of the book so to speak because the French Revolution led to the terror the guillotine of over a thousand people the repression the price controls the starvation fifteen years of war autocracy return to monarchy and what exactly did they gain in the process the lives don't know but anyway so they don't they don't really much care what they do care about is that right now people are scared no one will speak out we've already moved passes a country move past that the bubble Wallace controversy he said things today that were stunning and I'll return to this and we'll bet he said things that were stunning essentially the defense is that if he says it's a noose it's a noose that's interesting we all know that it's not a news but it does not matter because when you're a leftist if you just stick to the talking points never admit you're wrong this will actually be brand enhancing for him of a long one but I'll get to that in a little bit first I have at this moment of of you can tell there's a real anxiety about for a few reasons one of them is the coronavirus caseload is going up in some states in some places right we know that that's happening we've seen this in in taxes we've seen this happening in Florida now some of this is just more testing going on but there are also some places where sure enough there are more people in the I.

U. so there's that and the market you got hit today pretty badly you can tell things feel a little off right now here we are New York we're in phase two looks like phase three is coming up which is too slow for my liking as I've told you but none the less it's in the right direction okay I'll take what I'll I'll take what I can get at this point for the restoration of our freedom but there is all this anarchy and rage in the streets and here is what the I mean the most powerful female Democrats in the country here's what she has to say speaking yesterday you said that Republicans are quick trying to get away with murder actually the murder of George Floyd Senate Republicans are demanding an apology for that statement will you apologize absolutely positively not the fact is I think you frankly on the precipice and far too much credit for a bill that does nothing now you might say that Nancy before she said and I will be very clear that Republicans are trying to quote get away with murder the murder of George Floyd I mean that's borderline incitement from the speaker of the house at this point in time to say something like that just shows you how reckless and desperate and discussed it senior democratic leadership is willing to be and and how they all right this is who they are this is who Nancy is she is ruthless and that's one thing are Democrats gotta give me credit for that I have any principles that have any decency most summer pretty dumb but they are ruthless.

"The day in the evening that the protest movement in Wisconsin officially as I pointed out on Twitter you can follow me on Twitter at Jeff Wagner six twenty the time in the day the protest movement Wisconsin officially jumped the shark and move from legitimate protest into anarchy I said during the conversation with these goofy that there is one word that describes both the governor of the state of Wisconsin and the mayor of Madison that word is weak and because of their weakness you saw what happened yesterday for those who haven't been keeping track let me kind of review the bidding on this the the the the the stuff and the problems in Madison really began to help late Tuesday afternoon what happened earlier in that day if there's a guy named divine here Johnson twenty eight years old who walked into a restaurant on the capitol square and began harassing people who were eating their walks in with a baseball bat and a bullhorn and starts screaming at people well okay look at this at this point in time you you are not engaging in legitimate protest you are private property you are disturbing the peace when the police came to arrest him he decided he was not going to go peacefully and a number of Madison police officers had to after he resisted arrest had to carry him to the squad car all right this Johnson character has been one of the group of quote unquote activists who've been out on the streets is one of the unofficial sort of protest participants if not leaders all right so he he gets thrown into the scale for walking into the restaurant with the baseball bat and harassing patrons by early evening protesters anarchists terrorists had gathered outside the Dane county jail where he was being held and then they began marching downtown about three hundred protesters blocked traffic yelled at drivers demanded them to join the demonstrations the way the Madison papers describe it a few drivers drove through some of the crowds of protesters leaving at least one man injured organizer stood on top of a tow truck vowing that the night would not be peaceful here's what one says this is not a peaceful protest so if you came out here for a peaceful protest you missed it we're done being peaceful we are demanding justice protesters wrapped chains around for work that's the bronze statue of the woman it's located at the street State Street corner of capitol square and pulled pulled that statue down around ten forty five the sculpture is a replica of a sculpture cast in eighteen ninety three and installed in the capital in eighteen ninety five it's designed as an allegory for devotion and progress all right so we're tearing down the forward statue the mob not happy with that then moves on the protesters moved to another statue one of colonel Hans Christian headache at the top of king street they tore it down and drag it into lake Monona Hague was a Norwegian immigrant journalist who died at the battle of Chickamauga fighting to preserve the United States and end slavery all right so you've got the background here of what goes on all right that that does not that does not stop you know what ends up happening all right now while this is going on the police are centrally no where in sight we we have ceded the streets of Madison to the anarchists all right protesters then set a fire on one of the windows at the city county building downtown which also houses the Madison police department's downtown station another group shatters the front entrance windows of the Tommy G. Thompson center on public leadership which houses several state offices other protesters knocked down street cameras or spray paint over lenses at one point in time you have a couple of these thugs punch state senator Tim carpenter who's a Democrat from Milwaukee he he's he's out on the street he's taking a picture of this and what happens is a couple these people **** rush senator carpenter ant and punch him in the face and then apparently start do you have a mob of people instructing him when he is on the ground just before one AM today protesters terrorists thugs trying to break the windows and the doors of the state capitol at this point in time police finally arrived in riot gear and say the group was unlawfully gathered okay this is one o'clock in the morning if you have these mobs that are running through the streets starting stuff on fire okay free yeah sure who is that's that the name that the guy that got arrested earlier today uses the crowd chanted as they hurled taunts and insults at police officers confrontation ended about two thirty AM as the crowd thinned and the police while I'm a ventrally ended up standing down now okay you gotta understand the background of this that's what's been going on in Madison it started when you had the first protest a couple weeks ago as a general rule the Madison police the capitol police acting I believe on the instructions of the mayor and with the blessing of the governor have not acted to arrest protests sooner protesters sooner they've let him block traffic they've let him throw rocks through windows they've let him to face public property they've let them harass citizens when the mayor applauded remember this mayor of Madison who is extremely weak when she up I you know sent out a message to the police telling him how much he admired their restraint and all and held that they canceled stuff she had to backtrack of that when some of the terrorists thugs anarchists found out about it so well she she's supporting the police you can't have that happen now the governor today says well you know violence against any person is wrong it should never be tolerated okay well you know where's he been for the last several weeks city officials have so far declined to use police to protect buildings on city property which has resulted in widespread looting from YVR says well I'm going to continue to work with local law enforcement to understand their response and I might have to call out the National Guard our number eight five five six one six one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk N. text line right here is my question is enough finally enough are we going to allow the streets of the capital of the state to be overrun by the terrorists and the anarchists in my opinion the weak response from both the mayor and the governor led up to what happened yesterday and it set a permissive climate to allow that to happen and now you have a situation where you have the people who for whatever reasons aren't satisfied with the peaceful protests who have now decided to ratchet this up to the point that we're going to storm into restaurants were gonna scream and intimidate diners we're going to try to get our way and then when we get arrested we're gonna have hundreds of other people that come out on the streets bent on destruction I know enough is enough and it seems to me it's way past time I don't know if they even made any arrests last night don't know for sure if they made any arrests last night I know the first couple makes the protest when you had widespread arson vandalism and looting they they made what I think three arrests the first night how could you only make three arrests eight five five six one six one six twenty that's the accurate mortgage talking text line.

I should say it's not your station it's the people's station because you're the voice of my known as you say you got your license your low power FM license in twenty fifteen so your stations really been up and running for just about four years tell us how this all started yeah this this all started before I came to the city actually this was back in or anything two thousand and eight maybe right about when the FCC started thirty died the application process to have an LPFM ironically we have a number of radio rat if you will and unknown who who work in radio and or who had worked in radio and there are retired so they had this idea and they you know took it to the local community media committee which then went to the council and the you know said Hey we want to apply for this low power FM license the FCC going to be your old I have an application but it's not open that long so we have to jump on it and they did and they had to wait they missed the first application around and they had to wait again you know however however long it was and then whenever it be application process happened again they applied in two thousand and fourteen when I was hired they had the construction permits and they said okay your first task is to start this radio station so you are all of one hundred what's up in Manoa and again you are the voice of Madonna and for those those of us who don't know Manoa Wisconsin is is pretty much next door to Madison then you're you're pretty much neighbors aren't you yeah we we are literally kind of like a large neighborhood inside Madison ready to read miles this is very much work footage right and so we ask you this the radio station is community driven it's volunteer driven and you really emphasize getting the people of unknown I in there doing programs tell us how W. VMO reflects the community of Madonna well you know we do little things I guess I'll start with the little thing so when people are on the air maybe they're talking about nonprofit event that's going on the weekend or any any type of event that's happening in the known are whether it's a senior center director or a resident down the street we have them start with who they are and where they're from so even if there were to say come out to you know all the nonprofit organization on such and such road they're going to say hi my name is Jim for made more road you know so they're good I he put the street when they talk so that people know all wow that's my neighbor more there's the there's the senior center director you know so well we want to localize it by letting people know who they are and that if they live in an owner that hears your street in there right down the road from that and just just as I said we you we represent men on our by having the parks and rec department on you're talking about the events in the park the senior center what the senior center has going on which is a very active senior center of the library we have a nature center just down the road the alto Leopold nature center so they come on and tell us what's going on so we try to represent man on it and what channel in the city has to offer but residents can reach out to us and say Hey we know this great event going on and we come on here and tell you know have a announcement about it and and that's how it starts and then that's kind of the what's happening in man on that aspect you know we also kinda have short two minute segment pieces of a few minutes with my older people so they find people Madonna who maybe have an interesting story or have been here awhile and then the interview on for a little while and we cut it up to a little two minute story some other people have done history moments years admin order history mall that when was incorporated ankle field was a man on a which is where Charles Lindbergh landed during his spear to St Louis Ron some thing like that that sprinkled throughout our americana music format so you know it's I think it's interesting because if you go to smaller cities like Madonna or even smaller that have radio stations like this I mean people are into it people rely on these small stations to know what's going on sometimes on their block or their street and I just think there's something so intimate about that and really it's it's sold just the inclusive that feeling that Hey this station room literally speaks to what's going on on my street in my neighborhood and reflects the community to have that in your your media I think it is vital especially today and unfortunately if you live in a bigger city sometimes that is more difficult that doesn't happen because you get so many syndicated programs and bigger radio stations yeah you know we we pretty much exactly what you said what are we one of our liners throughout the day is putting the local back in local radio trying to do exactly what you said what's going on down the street or my neighbor does well on the radio and told us about the birds that are migrating and that area we have a bird report so exactly that and when we do these things it is interesting because we thought when we start when we started this station I think we were hoping it was going to be successful in there is going to be the people involved and we would get some like we did not think it was going to be successful as it's turned out to be and I think that speech to not just my nana but exactly what you said that communities their communities especially with things like this work very hyper local well if you're an unknown if you're in Madison check it out W.
