"A number of years, I worked in those papers collected materials that I thought would be pertinent to putting together her story, did a lot of secondary reading to try and sort of ground her story in the periods in which she was living and acting and contributing, I didn't get very far in actually writing anything because I kept running up against issues of style of voice, whether to write as a daughter or as an academic. Since the subjects overlap with my own expertise and sort of difficult to refrain from the scholarly voice, but on the other hand, it was also difficult to refrain from the daughterly description. So I kind of stewed around in that Meyer for a while. Until I met Judy, who had independently discovered my mother's papers and wanted to embark on her own research project to tell my mother's story and we came together and decided to collaborate. Now, I started the project in 2012. And I remember early on, Lindy asked me how long it would take, and I said, I think ten years because that's been my track record. And she was a little bit of a guest. But it's been really wonderful to work on this book together. I had always known the passing ink and like you, I was surprised that there wasn't more done about her. Given the fact that she was the first woman in Congress, she's the namesake for title 9. She ran for the U.S. presidency. There's just so many remarkable things about her that deserve historical retelling. I think I was really attracted by the fact that the library Congress had a large treasure trove of her materials. That's something that really attracts historians. Archives. But I didn't realize how much there was. There's 2700 boxes, more than 2700 boxes..

"Kind of really like pause and make people kind of stare at that. And not in a kind of voyeuristic way, but to be like, you know, this is the reality here. And anytime that I felt like it wasn't doing that, I kind of got uneasy. And so that interlude came in the middle where I was like, you know, chapter one, two, and three are the coming of workers comp and each chapter kind of looks at one institution. And the chapter largely sits over the shoulder of the institution with periodical editorial sides for myself. And I think that worked, but the danger of sitting over the shoulder of the institution is that it's easy to only see what the institution sees. And so what I wanted to interlude in the middle was to kind of be this brave because it's like, again, calling us back to the awful harms. And I try, I had a couple different thoughts on how to do it. And I didn't know how to make it work. And that was a kind of last minute and fairly intuitive decision. And I was really worried that it was bad or that didn't make sense. And the book had been out for a few months before people started telling me, I've heard that from a couple of people that they find it very effective. I'm glad that you did too. Because that was something I really, I mean, this is the only book I've written. I'm a novice writer and didn't know if it worked or not, but it felt really important to try. And that was kind of my spirit overall with the whole book was being like, I feel, I don't think I'm important at all, but I think the stuff I'm talking about is really important. And it felt like this kind of duty to have this level of due diligence to try my best to convey this stuff. And that was the effort. And that bit you're talking about specifically, if people haven't read the book, I kind of break the fourth wall, and I'm like, hey, reader. I'm going to give you the names of each of the 259 men who are listed as casualties. And this is going to look just like a wall of text and you're not going to want to read it. It's probably going to look boring. And that tells us something about how all this is presented because I typed those names manually out of statistical table in a report. And it's boring visually to look at, but that was kind of, again, this point that we talked about before, is this is 259, I'm there's lots of the children who are on the cover of my book where people who lost their related to minors. They were listed. The photo is listed in library Congress's orphans. It's not clear that they're all actually the children of miners, they could have been siblings or whatever, but every one of those kids is related to a dead miner from the cherry fire. And so this is like many, many people's worst day of their lives..

I'm sure go listen to klay thompson buck sexton show. You can always listen on demand and we are excited to have more of that coming your way. Just a quick news. Update here clay. I gotta tell you what the what the because we we're gonna. We could probably argue over the dumbest cova theatrics. There's a lot a lot of options. There's a lot of options right But there's just a breaking news story here that the The team brought to our attention. Police brace for a lengthy standoff right. Now this is in politico. On capitol hill amid active bomb threat. Law enforcement is attempting to talk to a man in a pickup truck. Who says he has explosives and his parked outside the library of congress. We do not have any further information on that but obviously someone outside the library. Congress saying. He has a pickup truck. Full of explosives is very concerning. Will continue to follow that story for you all right clay. So i didn't did i. Did i tell you what the ads. I don't even know what the answer is. So what is now. I'm just making a claim here but the new york times is essentially backing up some of the claim with this piece. What do you think is the what is the thing that you say. I cannot believe people were caverns edge or had to do this all so there's a ton of things that the data would reflect like. We've obviously ridiculed masks. We have ridiculed schools ever shutting down lockdowns in general. None of the data supports this. But i would argue that. The dumbest thing that that that probably exists in my opinion is Is some of these public venues. I'm gonna give you two options. One is wearing a mask until you sat down in a restaurant. Which i there's no one on earth who can possibly say that that makes sense the other or the shields that people are putting in place like you know like when you go into a convenience store family feud or whatever you get the pot that is that is that as the answer really day wheel of fortune daily. I don't watch enough of these shows are coming back now. They started to go away right shields. What so here's what. So so important for everyone understand because remember the science if you argue if you agree with clay and buck if you agree with us you are denying the science and people freak out about that right however the most recent data and this is from the new york times from top level academics at universities to study. Saudi air ventilation engineering. This this is let me. Just give the headline yes. Those anti kobe plastic barriers. Don't help probably don't help. It says and may make things worse of course so this. We've we've had these plastic barriers up now. A lot of things don't help. That's we know that the you know the whole put your feet here in the elevator but making things worse as a level beyond. Here's what this actually says we in this piece. It says there may be a particular problem. Places like classrooms people present for a longer period of time where interrupting the airflow can create pockets of covert in the air so by by creating these barriers which are actually going to do is interrupt normal airflow. This is what this new york times piece says and essentially create a you clay. You're in a restaurant you're behind the plexiglas and it's all this is keeping you safe from. Cove it it's actually making you sit while you're eating your Your gras or whatever your chicken wings in a cloud of covert according to the the laws of aerodynamics in this article think about that it's worse for you it is. I hope that in the years ahead were eventually going to get studies to prove. I think this is one of many things that actually makes things worse and or doesn't help it all and it doesn't surprise me. I wanna see study on these stupid restaurants that require you to wear a mask when you walk into the restaurant and to your seat and then once you're seated you can take immediately your mask off. I mean i think that's probably the dumbest rule that exist. I also believe that masking was essentially compliance training and also elevated people's anxiety because it's a constant reminder that you're thinking e scared and so then they're more likely to do all these other it's like masking is the the center of the whirlpool like this thing. That brings everything else down with it. We got our friend. Pete hegseth. He's a veteran. he's a fox. News host is a buddy of mine and clays talking to him about afghanistan.

"Now it's become more dangerous than you've ever imagined right so we have an opportunity to lean into the discomfort of having talked to about this in order for them to find language around it and honestly i don't want you know always young people. Racism is nothing to make sense of. That's the complicated part about it. All right that's why it's such a strange conversation. It's nothing to make sense of but we do have to lean into having a discussion about how nonsensical it is that i think that language of helping kids process you know one place he said you don't write pain for trauma porn and boy. We are addicted that stuff in this society like true crime but the stories you tell have a lot of pain in them and they have a lot of trauma and i wonder How would you talk about that line. Like what are the different ingredients that go into bat line between telling the hard true stories. I think for me the traumas. Real pain is real but it not omnipresent. It isn't something that governs my life. It especially doesn't govern the lives of children right. I think it is disingenuous to write it. I it's i think it's hack work because the truth is is that if you know children children who are the most human amongst us by the way children always find a way to laugh. Children always find a way right. If you're talking to a fourteen year old no matter what's going on a fourteen year old is trying to figure out where the joke is trying to figure out when the opportunity comes for the sad part to be over so that they can roast their best friends. I think that this sort of fervent nature of finding humor and lightness and levity is a is a remarkable gift of youth honestly and so for me. I'm not interested. I right that. Which i believe is real and things that happened and i when i don't want to shy away from things that are complicated and tough but i also want to write whole stories about whole people i think sometimes we reduce children and young people to have formed things right and so you right half formed stories about them and even that ties to the way people talk about children's literature right people talk about children's literature as if it is a category that is full of half formed work. But that's because they to believe that children have formed right and so and so. I think those of us who acknowledge the humanity of young people those of us who acknowledged the complexity in the beauty and the sophistication of childhood know that. When you're writing all those elements have to be present. You i to talk about some of the ways that you get at this. Because i think these are important tools for all the rest of us and parents and teachers but all of us you know you talk about using synonyms when you're helping kits process and letting them come up within someone that i was so intrigued by that you used as a made up synonym for freedom is this is one word breath. Laughter brooke laughter. Yeah sounds good doesn't it. You know. I think For me like my whole life around figuring out is playing around with the outcome of language. That's my whole jam right. I want to figure what exactly Would of this sort of chemical reactions that take place when you put this word this word you know. That's something that i think about the poet. John ashbery that was his whole thing. Like i don't know what this means but if you put these two words together what does it make you feel right and i. I'm curious about that. So you take something like freedom. What could be sending him for freedom. And i made up the word breath laughter. Because there's something about the idea for me that When i think of breath i think of life but i also think of Make it doesn't stop right. So if you exhale what comes out of your mouth spreads and spreads and spread it goes and goes and goes and go and that's something to think about right. It's something to think about what happens when when we breathe out or even it's also interesting that they were breathing in breathing out which means it's a constant recycling of energy with an amazing thing to think about right just constantly cycling of energy and so what if laughter could also be recycled in that way. What if it could just go right. That is freedom to me if they could just go and go and go and go and go if it could be the ripple in the water i to me that that feels free right now physically free. You know it's a different conversation. Feels like freedom to me so yeah. I'm krista tepid and this is on being today. i'm with jason reynolds. The celebrated young writer of books for middle schoolers and young adults with wisdom for all humans. Something i really appreciate in your work and your philosophy of writing and what you right. Is there reverence. You have for the power of words and ideas. I grew up in the middle of the country. This is not related to race. Like this is very american thing. This anti-intellectualism this this mistrusting of the life the mind and so you know i watched this. What's your title. You are the national ambassador for young people's literature of the library congress fabulous title. I watched you give a speech Was it for the library of congress or librarians and he talked about libraries as sacred spaces and librarians as architects. And what if libraries are warehouses. Where we build human libraries and at the questions kids have get stored on his shelves and passed around and loan down to others. And you talked about the reference desks. We have in our heads and this piece of it that you're calling out it is it's counter cultural in a strange way that we don't reflect on in american culture and feels really essential tonight. Do you know what i'm talking about do i do. I think it's interesting because no one ever talks about that speech. Because i ultimately i think that my rule for as long as i am on this plane and as long as i am doing this work my rule will always be to figure out how to create for two in the minds and bodies and spirits of young people right. I'm trying to fortify them. It's also the reason why. I do so much around imagination. Like this is a big deal. From or why do the whole let's create synonyms. Because at the end of the day ultimately i need young people we ride the collective we need to be able to activate their imagination if they cannot if they don't have if by the time you're out of high school your imagination shot. We're in trouble big time. We're in trouble. But how does one keep an imagination fresh in a world that works double time to suck it away right. How does one keep an imagination firing off when we live in a nation that is constantly vacuuming it from them and i think that the answer is one must live curious life right one. Must have stacks and stacks and stacks of books on the inside of their bodies right in those books. Don't have to be the things that you've read. I mean that's good too but those books could be the conversation that you've had with your friends that are unlike the conversation you were having last week. It could be about this time taking the long way home. And seeing what's around you that you never seen because most of us especially city folk We stay little quadrants right. We stay on the five block radius wherever the coffee shop as in the school in a church and right it's like but what if you were to walk the other way would if you would explore the places around you would if you were to speak to your neighbor and to figure out how to strike a conversation with the person you've never met would if you were to try to walk into a situation free of preconceived notion just once once a day does walk in and say look. I don't know what's going to happen and let's see. Let me give this person. The benefit of the doubt to be a human. Yeah what can i say one thing that i was just thinking really about the word repentance. I just think you might like this because you like words that repentance in the greek and the hebrew it is not about like private conversion. The word is like can medic. The word actually is about stopping in their tracks in walking another way. Which is what you just described is way too. I think in some ways the way you said it is very simple. In the census very manageable like stepping out of our neighborhoods. And isn't that isn't that the thing right isn't that this is also why work with young people while i love young people because they haven't complicated life yet. If you ask a young person would advice would you give. They would have what you give a person right now in the midst of all the things that are happening you know and the young person especially young black person would say oh..

The last time we did a show in studio wasn't watching twenty one early march twenty early march because you immediately after rudy gobert tested positive and the whole world start started to go nuts. You said i quote this thing's coming for me closed quote and you said i'm not coming in there. You're going to have to call me and we didn't even have zoom then now a year and a half ago and you are back you know. I have had people in the studio but they have been. I've had some interns here and there my son some of his friends right trying to help them get some credits in school for like an internship. That's pretty damn easy work in here. Although the you know i i give them things to do but So they've come in a couple times because they wanted to record their voice like doing an update or something like that for a project. Other than that. Gino there's a red marker on the front of this Studio and that indicates that the cleaning people don't come into the studio. I don't know why i haven't taken that off. I would have no problem with the cleaning people coming in and cleaning the studio. But i just got used to doing it by myself like once every two or three weeks i'd grab the vacuum cleaner. Now come in here. And then you'll see i've got like some pledge or see it down there that lower shelf i see your cleaning cleaning supplies and i would just you know. Take a once every three weeks. I would just vacuum and clean the studio but it was just me and here. It's not like he was getting that. I mean every once in a while there would be some cereal on the floor. No pretzel salt. no press. No pretzel salt after all this time. Just some magic spoon cereal sometimes on the floor if it came out of my mouth but it's good to have you here now. Is this going to be one time. The one that i really this is just so so. I can see your face. Make sure you haven't chain. No no no. There's there is an ulterior motive. Believe me there isn't okay. Good because we're going to have lunch. Yes after the show today tommy. I look i've seen pictures of you because you tend to put a lot of pictures of yourself out on social media. Yes if you're at the beach and you're enjoying a beer with the water in the background. Whatever it is. I don't really do that much as you know. But i've seen those pictures. I've not seen you In full form you have lost a lot of weight and you've lost weight before but this is the first time when you walk through here. What did i say to you. I'm like holy shit. You're wasting away to nothing. You're healthy though. I way what. I weighed in one. Thousand nine hundred seventy six. That's incredible. yeah and what have you been doing. We've talked about this a little bit here or there. You've been walking a lot. I know that. Well i mean my philosophy was and we've talked about this. During the pandemic. I was determined to have something to show for being locked up for this time. I wasn't just go to. I don't have that much time left. So i wasn't gonna waste this time right so you call it a lot of friends. Call a lot of friends I was determined to lose weight. I started walking a lot. I started just simply counting calories. That's all and i reduced limit slowly Over the months. And i also wrote two screenplays. Yeah right so yeah But you're not sharing sharing with us. What those screenplays are. Well i mean when when you get some of your movie mogul friends to ufo some interesting. You ask me now. I don't know four months ago. Five months ago. Who do you know that i could share screenplay with and i said we mean who do i know who who would i know pleasing though people you think i got friends that dreamworks people know on. Oh you never know what you come up. Okay you've got powerful friends. Do not have power. I don't well not in that area. I wouldn't i mean like i remember thinking who would i even you know i have. I have a step brother who lives in l. a. and has been involved in trying to write screenplays in different things and i've asked him before and it's been a while Since we've talked about it. I i'm interested in how that whole process goes because there's like a There's a treatment. It's called a treatment or you familiar with that familiar with the treatment which is like a six paid right Synopsis of the story right way of a show or a movie. Yes so if you don't get past like the treatment better be a great piece. I've ignored the treatment. You i've written treatments before you have and ultimately what people in the business say. Well i want to see the script. You know so i've written the script. I'm working angles based on people. I know nothing's come up yet but Look it's like buying a lottery ticket it really is. I mean the chances of something getting made right are slim. But i know these are good movies. I know it. I know they're good. I know they they would i. I know there's a lot of garbage out there that gets made. There is a lot of garbage that gets made out there. That would be so incredible. If somebody bought your screenplay it wouldn't make a movie. He would be cool. But you gotta play to win you gotta right you gotta have something to sell in order to him that you've got to protect yourself a little bit right. Well i've i've already registered both of them with the writers guild of america and also the library congress so i have double protection. You get double protection this. You didn't have to worry about that with your books. Did you know they were automatically. They were all always in the library. Congress the the the publisher always had a copyright it wasn't my copyright. Who is the publisher. The publishers book you know so and plus you know nobody. Nobody was fighting to steal my books. Okay they're still not they're still available for really. I don't know actually. I think if you asked to be paid a dollar to take one might i'm kidding. Of course so you have taken this you know year and a half now of the pandemic and you have written two screenplays. You've lost a lot of weight. Yes you have reached out and we haven't had an update in you know many many shows on how many people you've reached out to recently in if any of those conversations were were worthwhile. Any of them well. I stopped doing that after a couple months. Because the last guy i called. I'm not going to give. His name is a sports writer. Friend of mine and i called him on the second day he was working in a row beef franchise that his son had just started and it was utter chaos and he's screaming into the phone. Oh i can't talk now. He no and after that. I said i'm not calling anyone again..

Divide see that's what we doing on the recommend. That's it man. I don't know what else i'm doing. That's all i know. Definitely got that impression especially the things that are kind layered on top like the voices and things spoken word stuff. Like when i listened to on tail it felt almost like a field recording of people. You know when you catch something in a field recording. The frequency of that record is different. If you catch it with a you forty seven so if you mix them together didn't create another thing a lotta times is more important how you capture the energy that you capturing rather than would it is for instance one point. We had some incredible black mardi gras indians. We had a mardi gras indian tribe in the studio and we captured in playing and when we captured them plan their energy obviously was still reroof their. It was incredible. What in studio the way we cap today. Energy didn't match is better. If we catch the energy in a way that matches the frequency energy. which is a field recording. Which is why. I love listening to those in the library. Congress alan lomax records. That's better even though technically is worse. But it's better iphone records better. Sometimes it's better to be catching it on a zoom record. That's better so that's what we did with until and the piano is captured pristine in blending those to create a nostalgia. It creates a nostalgic because you hit his recording butting heads are meshing together really with this pristine piano.

"I grew up catholic but not anymore. And so it's been really interesting learning everything about having to learn everything about protestantism in a few years having having worked here so that's an interesting process while it's just. It is such a different community than i'm used to that i. Would you know my bias would not have suggested that this is what churches archives collection looks like. But it's filled with art filled with sculpture filled with a big arts and crafts community at the church for many years. And there's all these incredible puppets and dolls and there's so much art so many paintings it's just much more complex than just institutional records and a few bibles. It's all kinds of different stuff of this whole community that has been built around riverside and i think it's because riverside is such a. It's intra nominee. It's nondenominational it's it it. It's open to everyone. Time steverman open. It's it had relationships with with not even knock non-christian religions it's it's not even just exclusively christian per se so that's been really interesting an interesting experience to work with w wr vr because they are preserving their audio visual collection. Which is a choice. it's there it's it's as we as i. O visual content is deteriorating. It is harder to get on. Board of digitizing that content before it deteriorates and vince working at an institution where there is also other parts of their collection where the paper materials and to preserve. It's great that they are also preserving audiovisual because we at the work with stations across the nation where they mainly have a collection of audio visual and they are applying for grants to preserve it. Or don't have the resources on staff to preserve it. So i think in general archivists preserving audiovisual content from public broadcasting institutions is something that needs to be more known about in and supported. Yeah what's the time. Line like for some of these materials. Read as it. It's pretty urgent right. Yes so in two thousand twelve. The library congress came out with a report saying that audiovisual content had about fifteen to twenty years before it becomes the deteriorates to a point where it can't be saved and so that was two thousand twelve about principally tape in this case..

"Of everything could not have drawn more attention to the importance of but punchbowl is all about and obviously i should say that punch bowl is the secret service codename for the capitol building and so it's very motive in the sense that it's where we live report takeaway was we've been saying our other co founder john bresnahan who invited here today but is tied. Tis lovely dc. He and i have been working next to each other with anna in the capital for more than a decade we are very big proponents of being there at all times no matter where there is if there's a big congressional race were there if there's a big whatever we're always there. The takeaway is democracies fragile. Right i mean. I think january six showed that we were vulnerable as a capital as a capital community. We took too much for granted shows the power of words. You know it's funny. Someone asked me the other day on twitter. If there was a vote to create a january six commission on january seventh or january six. How many votes would have gotten in the house and senate and it would have probably got four hundred and ninety in the senate so those are my main takeaways so also from the journalism point of view. I think what we were doing that day. We were bringing readers along for the ride. Our friend john harris. Who's the founder of politico. Always used to tell us that the brilliance of sixty minutes is that you saw steve kroft boston to the door. And you know and mike wallace and you saw them doing their job right. We try to do that as much as humanly possible right. you know. I think a couple of things. I would say jake. I would not have necessarily launched january first. We worked up until december thirty first at our previous job. We launched january third so we had two days off. we took our first credit cards versus versus guy. You center i e mail but it was very for to. It's for us in terms of having the world's is on the capital. Unfortunately unfortunately for us. I've seen on thought it was going to happen but the sense that we felt like were tweeting. We're going live on videos. We're doing television and it was time. Where obviously the world's attention was on the capital and to have punch news launch at that moment and to be the experts that people were turning due to say what is happening here. You couldn't have had more eyeballs on it. I think that was really helpful. I also think that. I mean we were trying to send emails and special alerts. You'll have to remember. We're only four people which is pretty wild. We're adding some folks too excited about. But i mean it was scary. It was yes. It was very scary because one thing we always talked about john bresnahan and i always was if the building was infiltrated. It's so big. It's just so massive it would take weeks to get people out because there's a hidden tunnels there's you know there's so many twists and turns and there's the capital then. There's three house office buildings. Three senate office buildings library congress and another couple buildings are all connected underground right..

"I want to point that out. Black history month is celebrated here in america. It's celebrating candidates. Have you worry. It's celebrated in the uk in october. It's also celebrated in the republic of ireland. So it's not african american history. Black history isn't just about what happened on. Us soil far as black history month. My feelings about it is. I love it Also is celebrate it all year long. Speak you see. My page is called daily. Black history facts. I started it because my son at the time thinking was twelfth grade. He's he'll be twenty seven this year. He when when i was on facebook and i was celebrating. Black history month was like okay. So that's it we're done. That's and i was like no. We're not just confined to that. The celebrations happen in february because not everybody celebrates it all year long not other cultures. Look at it all year long. But you do have festivals. You have taken engagements you have every. Have all these celebration. It's kinda like valentine's day and people that are against that one day say i celebrate love all year long. Not that i know of. It's still called black history month. Of course on my page. It's everyday and during the month of february what i do on my pages. I feature different things. One year i featured on slave narratives because a lot of people hadn't read these interviews at the library Congress conducted with former slaves in the early nineteen hundreds so featured that along with what goes on daily with black history one year i featured black scientists and it again not limited to what happens here. It's black history black people all over this world. We've made history contributions to this world. You know all over. So we'll earth wall space too but I featured a mathematician. Everything you can think of. I do it in february. I don't have a problem with this because everyone can talk the talk we should. We should all year long. But everybody doesn't do it. I don't celebrate saint patrick's day. It has nothing to do with me. I don't celebrate cinco. They might. It has nothing to do with me and i don't. I'm not upset that other cultures get a month to celebrate. You know because is hispanic heritage. Elba i don't get upset about that. That's they celebrated do what you need to do. I'm like black history month because there is a focus. That isn't that. I see people more active during black history month that i do see all year long. I'm active all year long.
