Senators beat Rangers 5-3 to spoil Patrick Kane's debut
"The debut of a new ranger was spoiled by a pair of old ones as the senators earned a 5 three win at Madison Square Garden. Derek Broussard scored twice to back fellow X ranger camp Talbot, who stopped 29 shots. Talbot denied Patrick Kane with a pad save with 5 minutes left in the third. Cain was playing for the first time since the rangers acquired him from the Blackhawks this week. It would be nice to kind of settle in. Get a couple practices and kind of understand the way they want to play. The blue shirts led three to two until Broussard scored on an assist from Claude Giroux, who provided the tie breaking goal less than two minutes later. I'm Dave fairy.

We've Nationalized the Entire Student Loan Industry
"To be a market for private student loans, where you address up in a suit and tie just like this. You would go to your local banker if you were a senior in high school, you would present your grades, your career plans, you would look the local banker in the eye and say my name is Joe Smith and I have as an engineering and I have bees and mathematics and I would like to go to the university of Wisconsin Madison and I would like a $30,000 loan in the banker would ask you some questions. The banker would say, well, why should we take a risk on you this local community bank? And sometimes you'd have to bring your parent to co sign the loan. And you'd have to all of a sudden understand the significance that signing on the dotted line that this loan has to be paid back. But over the last couple of decades, one of the less covered stories when it comes to student loans and I write about this extensively in my book, the college scam, which is thoroughly researched with pages and pages of footnotes, is that we've basically nationalized the entire student loan industry, 98 to 99% of all student loans are underwritten by the federal government. They're underwritten by the U.S. taxpayer. Now, this is important for a lot of reasons. Number one, no longer does a high school student have to dress up or not even dress up, but just act professionally and go into a local community bank. Look somebody in the eye have to present themselves and say, I would like a loan for these reasons. You are now able to borrow tens of thousands of dollars sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars from your pajamas in your basement on a website called fat F a FSA dot gov. In fact, almost every college, except hillsdale college requires you to fill out fast stuff. For not just student loan grants, not just grants, but any sort of student loans whatsoever.

Young Rising Conservative Stars Receive Harsh Press Treatment
"Young rising stars of the conservative movement are receiving some pretty harsh and unfair treatment by the activist press. The actress press knows if they could take out some of the up and coming faces and voices. They try to do this with Madison Cawthorn, and unfortunately, in a lot of ways, they were successful. Madison Cawthorn certainly would tell you that he would make some different decisions, but he was treated terribly by the media and the establishment Republicans, and they tried to get rid of them. Now they are using the Madison Cawthorn playbook to try to go after many different people. I hope James O'Keefe ends up being okay through the entire saga of project veritas for human rights very closely on that. And I have not seen or heard a single thing that necessitates the departure of James O'Keefe from project veritas. Improvements, adjustments, disciplinarian meetings, fine. Whatever. He's got to stay. And this plays into a theme that we saw manifest in a story in The Washington Post of a total hit job, a drive by shooting of the truth against Anna paulina Luna. Who is terrific and is one of the most effective articulate and important voices in Congress right now. Of course The Washington Post would go after her with a long allegedly biographical story, which was completely dishonest. They would never do such a thing against Elon Omar, looking into whether or not Elon Omar falsified immigration documents because of something she may or may not have done to her brother. But some people just did something, right? Elon Omar, as her defense with her relations with her brother.

Biden to Push Economic Message After State of the Union Speech
"President Biden kicked off the traditional post State of the Union blitz in a key battleground state, Wisconsin. At a training facility near Madison, the president says his economic plan is about investing in people and places that feel forgotten. He feels things got done during the last Congress, it could work with the Republican majority in the House. People sent us a clear message. Fighting for the sake of fighting gets us nowhere.

"There's obviously way more to that to dig in. But I thought the article was interesting and I'm going to be looking at some psychology. Actually, not to keep pumping bachelor in Paradise, but the truth is you do see Serena's pretty much saw me. After day one, had banned in my hair and you had socks with sandals. Sandals. Yeah. This is me, babe. Take the lead. 100%. Yeah, look at you guys. Thriving. So we'll see. The articles, yeah, he was talking about being naked with his partner and realizing his partner is attracted to him and it's like, you know that, you know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. It really is. Like 100%, I know we're just keep going. But I'm like, even thinking of my girlfriends, I'm like, all my Friends, I just think they're the most beautiful people, but then I'm like, I'm like, is that just me thinking that they're beautiful? 'cause I know them. I really think that who somebody is makes them beautiful. I loved it. Great. I know. I know. I just loved it. All right, you know what I think it's the perfect time, let's bring in our guest, you know her from the first episode. Unfortunately, she went home. Went home early before the rose ceremony. Everyone please welcome Madison to clickbait. Madison, hello, welcome. How are you? Joe, Susie. Thank you so much for having me. I'm doing fabulous. Great. Good. Where are you? Where are you in the world? You live in Fargo, North Dakota. For our North Dakota born and ray is negative 5 degrees here today. Okay. So what do you do, how is nightlife out there? It's being single in a place like North Dakota. Nonexistent. No, you go out for your dinner drinks and your dinner and that's about it. There's zero night life unless you're still in college. Really? Is there a downtown in any major city? Yeah, Fargo is downtown is phenomenal. I love my downtown, but it's definitely when we talk nightlife, it's not the New York or LA where you can go to a rooftop and have cocktails for a few hours and still be entertaining. And when it's in the winter, it's obviously very cold and hard to get around, especially when you're wearing a parka down to your knees. Yeah. I feel that. I'm from Chicago. I currently live in New York, but it was just rainy and cold and we were like, I'm in Florida right now because we're like, we got to get out for like four or 5 days because I need a little sunshine, a little vitamin D, because it just gets brutal. How old depression is a real thing. For sure. No, it really is. It is. What are you? Oh, how are summers up there? Is it warm in the summer? Phenomenal. People live up here for the summers. For those three months of Lake season and people go for a reeling and all that kind of stuff. It's definitely like a little bit more backwoods, but it's beautiful. I love that. Do you have any like North Dakota hobbies? My thought when you were joining was like, do you play hockey? Is that just like a stereotype or do I is that real? North Dakota culture. That is spot on Minnesota and North Dakota are known for hockey. I didn't play. I can ice skate and I can skate, but I never played hockey before, but it is a thing. You're spot on. Okay. Okay, cool. So I wasn't totally crazy in thinking that.

"So we'll see. We'll see. We'll see. Okay. Bachelor nation breakdown number three. Let's we're going to recap the first episode a little bit. Give you guys our thoughts and what we thought. I thought it was a pretty simple traditional first episode. Nothing too crazy. I have my favorites. I feel like I think I know who he's going to pick or I feel like I think I could pick the top. I feel like I think I could pick the top four. But overall, you did this you did this not too long ago, she was what were your thoughts watching it back? I thought I actually really liked Zach. I think that if he gives us more of who he is as the season goes on, I think he actually might become a very liked bachelor. And I know that there's it's hard to please everybody in general. And so I know that there's been a lot of people that were just like dragging their feet when it came to watching, but I did see, I did think it was somewhat of a positive response. And I liked that, you know, when he talked with Madison, who were going to talk with later, I actually like that he was straightforward with her and he wasn't like reassuring her. No, you know, I want you here and I want to, you know, I want to see where this can go. He just really took a moment and you could see him work through that. And I was like, honestly, that was real. And I had a lot of respect for him, so I think that other people will see that. And I think that they will like that. And if we see more of that as the season goes, then I think people are going to really like him and this season. So I'd like to watch it back. I enjoyed it. I just don't see it unfold. Yeah, I think he's a pretty I'm not saying normal in a bad way, normal in a good way. I think he's got his head on his shoulders. I think he's a pretty normal guy. But also think like the show, like the bachelor, as much as it is about the bachelor, like it's about the girls that are competing for him. That's where I always felt like the entertainment comes from is and vice versa for the bachelorette. Sure, like the lead is the lead, but it's the 30 people trying to end up with this person. That's what I think. Yeah. Who any favorites from the limo anyone stuck out for you just from the limo? Just from the limo. Okay, Bailey was so cute.

John Zmirak: 'America Was Founded by Conspiracy Realists'
"The battles of Lexington and Concord, April, 1775, the British were marching to Lexington and Concord to take away the guns. Let's not forget about that. I usually do forget about that, John. So I'm really glad you framed it this way. Every government attempt to ban guns. We should treat as like Lexington and Concord. Every last one. The time to use your guns is on the people trying to come take them away because guess what? That's your last chance. The American colonists knew this. Well, they successfully fought the Revolutionary War. And they set up the Articles of Confederation with the first system of government. It was actually too weak. Then they convened a constitutional convention and they set up our system of government, which people like James Madison craft and Alexander Hamilton, the federalist papers that chronicle how it was worked out. They developed our system of government based on a careful study of where historical regimes had gone wrong, where monarchies had gone wrong, where democracy had gone wrong. And they purposely set up a government that would frustrate itself that would trip over its own feet with the president pulled against the Congress and pulled against the courts. They were a modern terms paranoid about the abuse of power. They set up each branch of government to frustrate the other two so that they would be intention at all times so that nobody could become a dictator.

NY bill would stop MSG from kicking out enemy lawyers
"A New York State bill would stop entertainment venues from kicking out enemies. New York City's Madison Square Garden and other sports venues could be barred from refusing entry to perceived enemies of their owners under a bill introduced in the New York State legislature seeking to amend a current state law. The plan is to add sporting events to the list of public places of entertainment that can not refuse entry to people that arrive with a valid ticket. The original law without that clause was intended to stop Broadway venues from blocking theater critics that they didn't like. The garden and other notable venues announced several people recently using facial recognition technology, the technology has been used to stop a New Jersey mom from accompanying her daughter on a girl scouts filled trip and barred an attorney who owned New York Knicks tickets from attending the game.

Those Who Rise by Party Must Never Distain Party
"Disraeli was the great British prime minister. I'll be writing about him for The Washington Post this week who said those who rise by party must never disdain party. And parties matter, I'm a party man. Everyone knows that. I salute Democrats who are party Democrats and Republicans who are party Republicans because the only way that things get done in the United States and has been that way since basically the constitution was ratified even though George Washington loathed party and even though Madison worried about faction, the framers knew they would come and the spirit of party inevitably invades politics from the time of recorded human history to the beginning. Only pre civilization societies, barbarian societies, lack parties. Then they have tribes, but enough tribes eventually coalesced, they become a party, and a great party won, but the people who are in that party who rose by party who then spited party and put their personal vendettas ahead of the triumph of the party long enough to embarrass themselves, we know who they are and I don't think all of them will be back and I don't think any of them will be punished.

The Campaign to 'Re-Educate' Jordan Peterson
"I've been talking about cancel culture and James Madison. I now want to talk about the extension of the same cancel principle to the Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson. Not sure if you're familiar with Jordan Peterson. But Jordan Peterson sort of, you may say, emerged on the scene several years ago as a psychologist who was challenging a lot of the entrenched doctrines of the left. And specifically the whole doctrine that there are no such thing as men and women, there's no important distinction between the two sexes, people can be whatever sex that they choose to be. And Jordan Peterson was bringing a wealth of credentials of intellectual sophistication of understanding of human biology, but also understanding of human psychology, to you may say, call BS on this on this whole project. And it became kind of a sensation, not just because he was a critic of the work. But also because a lot of young men who themselves feel a little bit lost. They are a little confused. They hear all the stuff about manliness. And really what the left is doing is presenting a notion of manliness that's kind of unmanly, at least unmanly by traditional historical standards, and it leaves young boys who are growing up to be men a little befuddled. And so it was refreshing for them to hear. And so Jordan Peterson would he became almost kind of a rockstar. He'd go from you'd have these large speaking events, almost like they were put on by live nation or one of these tour groups and you'd have large numbers of young people, mostly male listening to him and kind of holding on to his every insight, then Jordan Peterson developed a kind of a serious illness. He withdrew, but now he's back and so and he's back in a big way on Twitter and he posted recently breaking the Ontario college of psychologists. Has demanded the I submit myself to a mandatory social media communication retraining with their experts for among other things retweeting and he names a guy who's a kind of a classical liberal and criticizing Justin Trudeau and his political allies.

Cancel Culture Comes for James Madison
"It looks like cancel culture is coming for James Madison. Now, we've seen cancel culture come for Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was a slave owner. And we've seen it come for George Washington, Washington was a slave owner, even though he freed his slaves upon his death. And of course James Madison was a slave owner. But at the same time, these three men were vehemently opposed to the expansion, the consolidation, and most importantly, the legitimation of slavery. I think they understood that slavery had become and was even in some of their own lives as stable feature. But the point is that they wanted to move away from that. And they wanted to create a constitution and a society that was that would be dedicated to antislavery principles. Now those principles might take some time to play out. But this is the kind of dual side of Washington Jefferson and Madison. Now, what's interesting about the cancel culture with regard to Madison is the way in which it operates. Sometimes cancel culture operates from the outside. So take a typical example of a university that, for example, puts up a sculpture to George Washington and then there is a movement of dissent that comes from the media or from some activists who say, oh, you need to take the sculpture down and so cancel culture operates by exercising and external pressure or influence on what an institution does. What's happening in the case of Madison very interestingly is it appears that the cancellation is coming by coming from the inside.

The Totalitarian Left Is Trying to Destroy Distinctions
"Is our vision as conservatives? We know their vision is one of despair and confusion, the destroying of distinctions. One of the things that totalitarian left wants to do for our society is to destroy the distinction between God and man. Between man and woman between good and evil, they want to blur the lines that allow us to live in a free and stable and civil society because you know what they get a lot more powerful that way. But our vision needs to be clear and bold. How about this? We want a country where our kids love America again. We want a country where kids are taught about Jefferson and Madison and Jay, a country where they're taught about Abraham Lincoln and the beauty of the declaration. And the constitution of the federalist papers. We want a country where kids are taught that if you judge somebody on the basis of skin, you are a racist and we should instead care about character, not the complexion of somebody's skin.

Sebastian Reflects on Manhood and the 2nd Amendment
"Want to talk to you about the Second Amendment and how it was put into effect last night in my home. First, let's have a little reminder of, well, the manhood hour is going to be next with senior CIA operations officer Rick Prado, a legend in the black ops community. And in the spirit of our weekly manhood hour, you do not want to miss it. Let's listen to what the man in a wheelchair said on the floor of Congress an individual I was hanging out with at Mar-a-Lago just two weeks ago when the president made his historic announcement. And it has to do with the Second Amendment, and it's about being a man, cut 5. Our young men are taught that weaknesses strength that delicacy is desirable. And that being a soft metrosexual is more valuable than training the mind, body, and soul. Social media has weakened us. Siphoning our men of their will to fight to rise in a noble man or square their jaws and charge once more into the breach of life to defend what they love. So on this precipice of disaster, I ask the young men of this nation a question. Will you sit behind a screen while the story tales of your forefathers become myth? Or were you stand resolute against the dying light of America's golden age? We reclaim your masculinity. Will you become a man to be feared to be respected to be looked up to? Or you let this nation's next generation be its final generation? Will you let this next generation be our final generation of men? Thank you, Madison Cawthorn.

"Of all of that. So do you think that being seen because he said that about your sister and about your husband? Is that really important? I mean, obviously it's really important. That's not what I meant. I actually meant, do you think that that is sort of extends into the part of the crux of why you do what you do? Is that notion of reflection and visibility? Maybe in a subconscious way it is. It's funny as a songwriter I've always said, I don't know if I have anything to say. And then sometimes that'll change where you're like, oh, I do actually. There's a song here. There's a statement that I want to make. But I go in and out of phases and feeling like I want to be seen in that way. In a public way and times where I really, really want to hide and that probably fluctuates with the level of hardship that comes with it. You know, it's like the more responsibility you have, the more you crave the denial of it. That's at least been my experience. But I think just in my personal life, yeah, being seen is the most important thing to me, even if that means someone is seeing the worst parts of me. I want them in on that. I want them to know that. That's really cool. I like that. Madison, thank you so much. It's been so great. I really appreciate your time and all your thoughts. Thank you so much.

Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver
"madison " Discussed on Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver
"So uncomplicated for a second. You're like, oh, all that matters right now is just like the way the water feels and catching this wave or whatever, you know, it's like I don't sadly go to those moments often enough or I don't make space for them because there's just so much day to day my friend calls them techno realities, which are just these little things that you get lost in that sometimes cause you to forget what's important and what you love about your life. It's so weird because I was just having this conversation with my boyfriend the other day. I was like, what is this chasm between? The self awareness of things that will make our lives better and the actual doing of them. Yeah. You know how that feels. I know how that feels. And yet actually going and seeking it out is almost like we slump into that techno reality or we slump into it going, wow, this is just life. This is just what it is. I've got to sit in front of my computer for 5 hours and answer emails or do this thing. I think we've got to fight harder to carve out that other space because I know we know that's where the creativity and the freedom comes from. Well, and the people that I think who display that the most are like in sort of business terms are always deemed as flaky or just like non responsive, but they're actually the most tapped in. And that's not the case for every flaky person quote unquote, but those creatives that don't answer emails or don't. It's like, I know that there's somewhere creating or they're on a walk or they're doing the things that matter and it's like, who cares about the rest? I know emails matter. Like if I didn't answer my email, this wouldn't have happened today. So that's important to me. But also, it's just like, I think you're right, instinctively, we know where to return to, but we don't. It's always like last resort or something. Yeah, I think, again, it is just like insisting on drawing the lines of engagement with life. You know, I've gone, okay, well, it's going to be this for this amount of time. But I'm just talking from my I suppose from my own perspective, which is one gets lazy and then you don't realize that you've sort of been bludgeoned by all of the social contracts and all of the stuff. But it doesn't really take much. That's what's great. I can just walk up to the park from where I live in London, and that's where my mother used to say, that's where the city breathes. And it's true. Like you go there and these ancient trees and it's pretty wonderful. But you have to go do it, right? You have to do it. No one is going to tell you that you need that break except for yourself. I've learned that a lot where it's like, you know, if it weren't for me at times, putting my foot down, I don't think anyone would tell me, hey, you should stop. Or you should take a break. There's a machine that's running. And no one really wants to shut it down. Yeah. Particularly if you're generating income for them. I've also found that it's like, you know, I was like, yeah, no, you're right. I got to do that too. Yeah, I mean, it's also attached to morals too, where I'm like, oh my God, all these people are relying on me. I would do anyone wrong that way. And then it's like, there is a certain point of honesty that you reach where you're like, but the way that I feel now isn't helping anyone really, you know, like I have to have to succumb to something. In your life, can you tell me about something that has grown out of a personal disaster? This is another one of those questions that I thought about for a couple days. I did my research and I went and listened to this podcast beforehand and that one got me because I thought I'm 25 at the moment and there's the potential that some of my worst personal disasters are ahead of me. Oh, you're so not wrong. Which is like dark, that's great. It's really true. You can confirm you're coming at me from 25 years literally at 25 years old of the year. Oh my God, no, it's going to be great. It's going to be great because shit's going to grow out of it. Unfortunately, this is the gift that keeps on giving. Stop having personal disasters. You start keeping a tally. It's a relief to me in a certain way though, because the more that I've talked to people who are older than me or have just lived more life, the idea of like, oh, it just kind of stays hard. It makes me feel like there's nothing more that I should be doing to make it easier. It's like, oh, okay, good. This isn't on me. This is just life coming at me. But I would say the most recent thing that I can name, it was the experience of making the album that just came out on September 9th. It was so deeply difficult for me. I think because I just felt so disconnected from myself and from the process I just was like paralyzed. I think from pressure. And again, so much of it, I think, was I was responsible for so much of the pressure was I was putting on myself unduly. But from my label and from management too, it was just like this has to be really remarkable work. Otherwise, who knows in this fragile place that the industry was in and it's like the one time that I felt like everybody who was on the inside couldn't speak for how it would look or what it would be, all they could say was it just has to be amazing. And again, that's not me faulting anyone. I was also making this writing this in 2020. So it was already a disaster. Yeah, I think that was the scariest thing to me. I felt like I was like a little foosball on a foos table that like anything that anyone said could have just shot me in the other direction. So I felt like my compass was gone. So the whole time, to me, that felt like a disaster and trying to make music from that place. I rerecorded songs so many times because it just didn't feel right. I just felt like I was reaching all that to say as that was kind of happening. My grandma died who I was really close to. And you know, grief tends to do that thing, which I learned because that was the first person who I was ever close to that I lost. Grief says this thing that gives you this hyper clarity. Even if it's just for a short time where you're like, oh, literally only these two things matter. That's all I can give importance to. And for me, it was like family and love. And loving people well. And that was it. And music being out of the equation there just was a relief for a minute, 'cause I was like, I've been putting so much pressure on this and on myself and it's turned into this thing that I'm so afraid to look at in the eye. And what was so beautiful about that is there was a song that I wrote about her. It's called life according to Rachel that came out of that and it felt like that sort of purity of thought love and family sort of came through the music and what was so cool about it is I released it thinking this is such a specific song about my grandmother and losing her like I think it's just gonna be for me. And so many people have been able to attach their story and their life through that song, which has just been like so overwhelming and mind-blowing to me. And again, it's like one of those things that I think it was really just because there was like no ego around a song like that. There was no room to try and be impressive in the music. It was just like confessional. It talks about the guilt that you feel when you lose someone that you didn't do enough or all those things that you deal with. So yeah, I think and obviously the record is finished. And I'm proud of it, but that was one of those moments where I was like, how do I avoid going through that again? In my life, even though I see such good that came out of it. But you know, sometimes you come across these situations where you're like, there is literally nowhere around this, but through. And so you just kind of strap in and hope for the best. That's so amazing. And I'm so glad that I'm not glad you lost your grandmother, but to experience the clarity and the clarifying nature of grief is it's an extraordinary privilege and it is a really beautiful strange moment in a person's life. And to be able to be creative, to be able to use that and harness that, because that really, to me, is what that is. It's harnessing that energy and turning it into something else. But I'll tell you something that my dad said to me when I was heartbroken over this guy that I loved so much and really I mean I'm actually must have been your age and I thought that I was going to marry him and I loved him and he just broken up with me and I'd set up all night and I didn't smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee and I was sitting outside our House and my dad was going through this phase of I think I've told this story before but I'm going to tell that again because it's pertinent. And my dad went through this phase where he would go out jogging in the morning and it lasted for like three weeks, but it was during this time. He came out with his towel around his neck and he was sort of jogging and he had his towel headband on. Can he was like, he was like, oh, have you been up all night? And I was like, yeah, I'm so unhappy. I'm so sad. Everyday all day, just crying and smoking and drinking coffee. And he was like, over a chap, is it? And I was like, yes, the love of my life. And my dad was like, do you want me to tell you something that you're not going to want to hear? I was like, well, I mean, not really, but okay. And he was like, you're going to feel this way about someone else. I will say to you, Madison. You are going to feel this way about other records. However, you will also feel that it's easy and beautiful and simple in the way that maybe you love your husband. You have that relationship. Yeah. It's all of it, and it will be all of it if we're lucky, hundreds of times over. But I understand the brutality of being in that moment where it's just so painful. And the process has just been really, really difficult. And even though you're proud of the thing that comes out at the end, it's gnarly. And they'll be that experience again. I'm sure. I hope you're going to write so many more records and I'm sure have it for maybe other different reasons. You know, you'll have kids running around and you won't be able to fucking focus and it'll be like, I'm losing my mind and I've got to finish this record. Yeah, yeah. Totally, this goes back again to what we said at the beginning. It's like, you know, no sing when it's hard and taking steps to kind of alleviate that and sometimes you can't and you just have to go through it being hard. Someone said to me, during that time and a similar thing that your dad said, but she kind of was like, you know, the beauty of this is she was just gonna get harder. And I was like, I don't see beauty in that. But she was saying the reality is and where you can find beauty also is that you're going to lose more people that you love. This is the beginning, but it's also the beginning of more clarity and love in your life. And that can feel morbid, like a morbid idea, but grief is such a human thing. It's such a human idea. And it's things that we don't love to talk about. But I find it so important whether that be grieving the loss of a relationship or like actually losing someone, they all have a place, and it's sadly inevitable. I guess sometimes I'm like, there's no romantic way to really view this. It's just sad. That's it. Yeah. But that's also okay. Yeah, it's also okay, exactly. Sometimes it is, it is just sad. And it is just hard. And that's okay. And we get through it. You get back to the glacier and the inner tube. Yes. Hey, it's mini driver.

"With, but I would like to know. Yeah, I would too. I would too. I mean, I think it's really tricky, because when you're a kid and you ask questions like, regardless of whether one came from a spiritual household or not, you ask questions and I know as a parent, you endeavor to answer that question, no matter what it is. You try and find an answer. Yeah. I'm so aware of how little I've gone. I don't know. I felt like it was such a cop out and wanted to offer something up. I think it's really interesting that kids in a way have to shed the certainty of their parents answers. Yeah. And maybe those questions go back to being questions. And you don't have an answer to them. Totally. It's such a funny thing. Things I thought I was sure about. I realized it was just my parents gave me that answer because they were my parents. I feel like all of these big questions happened late at night. It's like dark outside and things start to feel a little bit scarier and you ask these questions that are going to be in your head or in your dreams or whatever to your parents. And I'm like, how much of it was them putting on a brave face and filling the silence and wanting to be a pillar for me and say, yeah, this is the answer to this. Probably 90%, you know? Yeah. Being an adult now and knowing how much I say, I don't know. That was also their way of loving me. They wanted to give an answer to help me probably just be able to rest my head. Go to bed, fall asleep, a 100%. When you see a little child's face going, what happens when you die? Like you really, you know, I've leaned pretty hard into clouds and heaven. I'm not gonna lie. I did a lot of that. Faced with this little face staring up from the dinosaur duvet. Oh my God. What happens when you die? Mom? Oh, darling. Oh, it's lovely. Don't worry, it's so lovely. You know, and he never questioned me. And then like, obviously, now we have these conversations. It's interesting, but I want to know that too. It also feel like maybe there's a reason that we just don't. Yeah. Because life wouldn't resonate in the way that it did if we were like, well, it'll be fine. I don't give a fuck, it's fine. There are so many people that I grew up with who act like that because of this certitude and what they think and know to be true. Where it's like, well, there is a heaven and that the afterlife is where it's at and that don't sweat it in this life. If it's not going your way. Yeah. The way that they treat people as a result of that, it's like, to me, or the earth, or whatever it is, it's like, how is this okay to you? Seeing that observing that, that started to just make me kind of like question, you know, it's like we are existing now. Why are we pretending like we understand that it's going to be taken care of later or that we shouldn't be thoughtful about these issues that are happening now or that we shouldn't be attentive to our neighbors or whatever. It's like, I just felt like such an oxymoron to me to claim to be a Christian and to then move through the world that way. But you know that's a whole other conversation, but I feel now like in my life when the words I don't know come out of my mouth, I feel a sense of relief. It's like releasing this pressure that I have to maybe feel like I need the answers for everything and to just be like, actually that's not for me to decide. It's not for me to say. And that's okay. Yeah, it's liberating. Do you find that with songwriting? I found that a little bit where if I was stuck and I genuinely didn't know what that verse was or what that chorus or what it was supposed to be doing. I would say out loud. I don't know. And then I would go and do something else. And it was invariably not necessarily always, but I would say about 90% of the time, in doing that other thing, whether it was going for a walk going for a surf, going to the supermarket, that the idea or the length, the bridge would come or the idea of the lyric. I think there's massive freedom and I don't know. It's the key maybe. And there's sometimes answers. You can't guarantee that, but in the action of saying I don't know and then going for a surf, we're going on a walk. Some of those say they're like as simple as lyrical questions, sort themselves out, where you're like, oh, that's the end of the verse. All of my favorite writers have such strict regiments. They don't only prioritize writing they prioritize not writing as well. And that's them as a part of it, you know? Yeah. That's brilliant. And that is so true. And I think even with writing anything, or maybe even with challenges, as a whole, the idea of leave it alone, like step away from that and allow the sort of now of discovery as opposed to staying in the certainty of I don't know. I think it can actually be incredibly liberating. That's really interesting. It's in the other stuff. The creativity is in the other stuff as well as the sitting there with the guitar or at the piano. Exactly yet, to use an audio example, it's like some of the biggest sounds are made from the lightest touch. You can use that in writing. It's like, we want to put our heavy hand on it because we want product. We want things to be finished and instant when it's like sometimes we just have to lighten up on our touch of the song and let it just grow. I feel like songs are like living things that if you give it the right amount of water and sunlight and attention, they will they will grow. And I was writing over the pandemic with Gary lightbody who's a really old friend of mine and a beautiful songwriter. And we were sending each other so he literally did he just sit there with a guitar and he figured something out. Then he sent it to me and then I play it and then I changed some of the lyrics and I'd send it back to him but it's like each time and then maybe we'd have like voice notes in between where he'd be like, I don't know about that what did you mean by that lyric? Like what did she mean about that linking us back into the thing? And it was so funny being in his I don't know. And then like playing around in that and then vice versa, it was so beautiful because that it was an exchange of I don't know what this is. Or I think it might be this but I'm not attached to it. So you can change it and we wrote like that and there's something really cool about that because it doesn't have to be anything in your right. It does create itself. It's the statue inside the block of marble that Michelangelo idea. It reveals itself. You just sort of chip away. Yeah, I mean, it sounds like also in the exercise what's so beautiful about that when you're riding with someone else is like, you can't afford to be too precious or egotistical about when your ideas are questioned. It's really actually just a question of wanting to understand. It's not like someone put it once where it was like, I try not to take criticism personally because it's not me that they're criticizing. It's just an idea. Which is like, we don't do a good job or at least I don't of separating myself from an idea because if someone doesn't like it, and I'm like, then I can't produce anything else. I'm the problem and it's like, that's not true. You're just the conduit for an idea and don't let yourself become too entangled with it. But I think what's so beautiful about that exercise is like you guys were allowing yourself to ask, like, I don't know what this means and you could either be like, oh, it means this or you could return it with it. I don't know, but it's malleable. Yeah, also practicing having that thrown at you, like, I don't like that. And it's your idea. And you have to go, well, that doesn't feel nice. Okay. And then you have to go through that process of going, well, so what if that were true? So now if I look at this song or this piece of writing from the point of view of this person that I love and value, they don't like this thing. Okay, so what is that? And then going and examining it and going, oh, maybe I was just attached to it because it was the only idea that I had and I wanted to send him something back to show that I can do this at the same level as you, which is ridiculous because he's been writing songs and many more songs than I ever have. It was interesting like interrogating the ego of someone I respect doesn't like my idea. And then you couldn't take it personally because they weren't there. You just have to kind of figure it out and write another idea. And then go, okay, well, that also works and is maybe beautiful. Totally. I think it's cool writing in lots of different ways. And it also creates an opportunity for you to respond in two different ways, either you are offended by it, and you shut down and then no ideas come, or you allow it to be this moment of faith where you're like, oh, I can do
Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver
"madison " Discussed on Minnie Questions with Minnie Driver
"Of hi-c? Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other players true nature. It's just a scientific method really in masking different people the same set of questions. You can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline. And it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalized to find love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. My guest today is musician and songwriter Madison Cunningham. At 25, she is one of the youngest guests I've had on my show. But you wouldn't know it from the wisdom and sort of old soulless that radiates not only through the lyrics she writes, but also in the way she speaks. And whether she's performing solo or sharing the stage with some of folk music's biggest names, Madison's musical talents are really not to be missed. I love hearing a songwriter describe the world in their own words. And it was delightful hearing Madison's perspective on my questions. I really hope you enjoy our lovely conversation. What person place or experience most altered your life? I would say music has been the thing. I think touring the country and the world was the thing that very much challenged my worldview and my line of thinking because I was immediately met with or I should say my opinions were met with experiences. And that changes everything. You can have thoughts about the way you think life should be or the way you've known it to be, but then when you actually experience life and open yourself up to other people's experiences, your opinions on things drastically change. And I remember the first tour I ever did, I was opening for Chris thee, and the punch brothers, and we both had a really similar background, like both grew up in the church. We were both homeschooled the whole way through and I don't know many people who had a similar story like that. We just were talking on the bus and I just was asking questions and I just will never forget one thing that he said to me. He's like, you're 21 now and I was like, yeah, and he was like, yeah, things are going to change for you. And he wasn't arrogant or like condescending or anything. It just was like, he was coming from a place of sincerely sympathizing with me and going or empathizing maybe and being like, I know exactly what you're saying. And I understand it completely, and why you're asking these things, but also it's going to change for you. I just know it. And he was right. And I don't even remember exactly what I asked him, but I remember the place that it was coming from. And I was very just fearful. I just, I just was nervous and scared and I felt I was experiencing impostor syndrome too. So I always say the music in a way saved my life and I think made me the person that I am because it just immediately challenged me and caused me to open my eyes and touch the world in a different way. Did you write different music before music became your I don't want to use the word escape, but maybe your evolution out of that first part of your life. Did you write music while you were still within it and then did you write your way out of it? Yes, and yes. And what was that music like? Do you have recordings of it? What was it like? I feel like I'm still very much that person I always had a curiosity of breaking musical rules. I really, really enjoyed that and just had a curiosity around that. But in terms of writing, my lyrics were very stale and they didn't show anything. They just told everything. I have a bit of embarrassment around that phase of writing that. There was a whole record that I did that had all of the songs on it, which is since been taken down. And again, musically I'm very proud of that record, but thematically and lyrically I just felt that I was showing my age. I think I wrote my way out of it. I had a friend who had sent me a book. Have you ever read the book writing better lyrics by pat Pattinson? No. God I want to read it. Yeah, you should, it's within the first three chapters you get his point and that's just enough to change you into inspire you and the rest of the book's great too, but he goes on this whole tangent about object writing and sort of how to write from your senses. And that really teaches you how to write and metaphor and to incorporate imagery and that phase, I was probably 18 when I read that book and I just remember that my writing started to take a turn because I would think about those exercises and his whole thing is like you write on an object using your senses, you write every day, but it can only be for ten minutes. So when the timer goes off, you have to be done. It doesn't matter if your thought was finished or not. And it's all about teaching the brain to dive deeper in a shorter amount of time. So just when I did that and kind of went full force with that exercise, I really feel like that's when I started to write songs that I was proud of and could get behind now. How great, that's really cool. I want to check that book out. It's incredible. From the first page or just reading the way that a writer writes. It's so inspiring. I think you totally dig it. What question would you most like answered? I think this is really on the nose, but I would love to know if there was an afterlife or not. I don't know if everybody feels that way. But for me, it's like that would maybe help things in terms of the way that we grieve. It's like, will we see that person again? I don't know. Did you have a spiritual upbringing? I totally did. I did. Yeah, and so much of my young adult life has been shedding all of that. But also coming back to it in different ways that I can't sort of help. I guess that question was planted in me as a kid, but there was always an answer for it. There's always like, yes, there is. There is the hope of that. And now I still have that question, but don't feel like I have an answer. And there's a mystery to that. There's a mystery that I've become totally comfortable
How I Got Here with Dave Fiore
"madison " Discussed on How I Got Here with Dave Fiore
"Boss Linda comes out and she's like, are you okay? What's wrong with you? I was like, I've been nominated for an award. And she was like, that's so great. What's wrong? And I was like, I don't know. So I called him back and yeah, and he was just, we set up the interview and everything, and the whole experience was just so surreal. Yeah, and just getting to, you know, getting to meet all of the other Pinnacle award recipients, like they are such amazing women. Right. And obviously, miss Marjorie Turnbull, that was amazing. Yeah. So it was just really surreal and a great blessing, honestly. That's great. All right, two more questions. Okay. So Madison looking back, what would you say is one thing or person that is changed the trajectory of your life up to this point? My husband. Yeah. When I met him, I wasn't really in a good place, you know, like mentally, obviously I was still that driven very hardworking person. But I had kind of lost myself, maybe in the crowd I was hanging out with. And certain things I was participating in. So when I met him, he was like, oh no, you know, like, the girls I'm with, don't do those things. And you know, and just like really uplifted me, you know? And he, you know, he's had hardships too as far as like, we both kind of struggled with mental health mental health mental health. And I think us just both meeting each other and especially in the time of life we did. We were both at very low points, but I think kind of the way we coped with it was like not necessarily acting that way. You know, like everybody that meant either one of us who would have never guessed that we were struggling. And people are sort of trained to hide that. Yeah, exactly. And so I think we both kind of saved each other and that sense. And the way that we are both able to uplift each other and push each other to be better. And I think that if I didn't meet him, I mean, I don't know where I would be today because the crowd I was hanging around and, you know, the things I was doing just were definitely not going to put me on a path to where I am today. All right, final question. The podcast is named how I got here. So we've talked about how you got to this point in your life. Where do you think here will be for you three to 5 years from now? So I would say in 5 years hopefully financial freedom, a kiddo and, you know, just, I don't really know where I'll be. You know you probably will have started 6 or 7 other businesses. I know, I know. Well, that's what I was about to say. I was like, I don't know where Tallahassee picnic is going to be because I have all these other ideas that I want to do, and whether it will turn into something else or because, you know, at the end of the day, these it's a trend, you know? These pop up picnics is a trend. So probably chasing the next trend or creating one. Or create oh, you know what? Trends that are. And hopefully, you know, working as an SLP in a school setting or something like that. Or even if I'm not doing that, you know, I always have to be doing something, so I mean, you bet your bottom dollar, I'm going to be doing something I'm going to be working and some sort of capacity. And what that is going to be, probably, I don't know. And I think that's what's so fun, you know? Is that life's not predictable? And I definitely didn't think, you know, as a junior and high school that I would be like going to college and married. And you know, running a business and working another job. So I think that's just what's so fun about life is that it's unpredictable and you can make it whatever you want to be. That was Madison zabala.

"Some maybe tell us more about that taxonomy but also when i asked you which papers you wanted to talk about today you said beside ten and fifty one i think one fourteen thirty nine forty nine fifty seven and sixty three or especially interesting. That's so tantalizing and you. You can't talk about all of them. But maybe give us a sense of why you picked some of those numbers that you well in terms of studying the federalist papers I think either in both at either end boasts is the answer to your question. There that it's it's it's good to to study at the way it was originally thought to be laid out by hamilton. Of course it doesn't quite work out as planned because this is a a a work in progress. Right as they're writing these papers staying up burning the midnight get it in by the deadline to publish it in the in the newspapers and so sometimes the plan didn't go quite as as as planned To begin with so they don't really follow hamilton's original plan Perfectly and it is interesting to see the different personalities coming through Despite the fact that they all sign the each paper puja says if there's one Persona writing these papers. Kubilius speaks with one voice but you can discover in the pages of the federalists When you see how. Hamilton madison will disagree and be on different sides of the party. Line later on you can see the seeds of some of that in their essays For example madison. One of the essays talks about trade. How how Has to take its natural. Agriculture and trade has taken natural course. Well that's exactly his argument in the seventeen ninety s against hamilton's report on manufactures. Hamilton wants to jump start. Manufacturers madison says no trade should take its natural course. Madison was with the physique kratz. Then he would be much of a free market kind of guy. Don't get government involved in subsidizing. This and hamilton is saying we have to. We have to in order to compete with england. Don't you understand economics. Madison jefferson you. Guys don't get it So you can see some of the seeds of that the federalist papers i think the federal is number one when hamilton says you know seems to have been reserved to the people of this country to decide the important question whether or not societies of men are really capable of establishing good government on the basis of reflection and choice or whether there forever destined for their political constitutions to depend on accident and force that one sentence along sentence but if you parse it out think about that are choices. I mean it's either gonna be accident. Force in some form of tyranny or another or the possibility of establishing good government on the basis of reflection choice. That is exactly the dichotomy put before us and book. Wanna plato's republic this. That's that's exactly what's going on in the pro-am of plato's republic power or is it going to be on the basis of power or is it going to be on the basis of persuasion. Is it going to be ballots ultimately or bullets and we facing that in the united states today were asking ourselves question Can we go on. Can we talk to each other so we can persuade each other and be one people rather than resort to force. once we resort to force. The rule of law is in danger. As lincoln tells us in the lyceum address. And it's a very easy. Slide downhill into some kind of chaos anarchy and just respect for government and disrespect for each other so that opening salvo a federalist number. One is more than mere words. It's more than rhetoric. It's puts before us the question of politics. Which is the question for each of us citizens. What are we going to choose. And how we act. Is that choice. How we act with one. Another is making that choice I have to say one word about federalist forty nine. It's my favorite though. I like though i have others Enclosed seconds but Federalists forty nine is Madison's disagreement with jefferson. And he takes him to task. You really kind of points out. He shows us the the seeds of assyria public opinion in federal's forty-nine but there's another thing i like about it and jack rakoff if he's listening to laugh at this so at montpellier that beautiful farm that you can have madison's home that you can walk around there these these gorgeous horses there and jack and i were ruminating when time about these horses if anyone were racehorses wouldn't you want to name one of 'em ticklish experiment madison says you know calling a second convention. You shouldn't do that particular experiment so we thought that if there was a racehorse vermont. Not to be named ticklish experiment Let me let me just conclude with my favorite Passage in the federalist papers. It's actually from federal thirty nine. Which i think sums up the vision of the federalist the first question that offers itself is whether the general form aspect of the government. Be strictly republican. It is evident that no other form would be reconcilable with the genius of the people of america with the fundamental principles of the revolution. Or would that honorable determination which animates every voter of of freedom to rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self government. That's the project of the federalists. That's the challenge of the federalist. That's our challenge. Still today so inspiring. Thank you so much for that. Thank you for reminding us that it all comes back to plato and aristotle power persuasion reason passion reflected in federalist one. And thanks for sharing your favorites including forty nine greg. I know it's very hard to pick a one. But so so much fun to hear which ones especially speak to. You can use single out one or two federalist papers that you like especially well you know one that The captures the imagination as a as a judge and legal scholar of constitutional law is a federal seventy eight. Now i mentioned earlier. Federal seventy eight one of the most cited in the courts Whether anybody actually read it at the time as i mentioned eight states had already ratified before it was published. It was one of the last one published. It was wasn't first published in the newspaper. It was published in the in the second volume of the federalist And was only later published in the newspapers but it talks about the judiciary and it says two things which both seem eminently reasonable until You think about them and then you wonder whether they're contradictory one. Is it says that the courts the judiciary is the least dangerous branch because all they do is apply the law. They just decide the questions. And they don't have their own force or their own political will and then in a very interesting passage they expressly discuss Judicial review that if there are provisions that are contrary to the constitution. The courts have no choice but to enforce the constitution over the provision. Now this is somewhat remarkable because what is the supremacy clause which has the constitution is supreme over state law. There's there's nothing that really says. What the relationship of the constitution to laws passed by congress are but the the unmistakable implication of several seventy eight is that talking about judicial review and those propositions seem Evident to us and reasonable that they're not like the president. They're not like the congress they are. They take cases that come to them and they decide according to law and therefore the least dangerous branch and then at the same time it says and of course they get the decide when there's a conflict between legislation constitution and i don't think at the time they understood that that could be seen as making it perhaps one of the most dangerous branches if not one of the most dangerous one of the most powerful and you know it it's difficult for them and their mindset at deceit things that would transpire later on Doesn't make them wrong But it's very interesting and Certainly any lawyer Who's interested in judicial review and and charges of judicial activism arguments. That there isn't traditional active. Should read the federal seventy-eight. Thank you so much for that. So great read several seventy eight and also to hear cleans recommendation of feckless forty-nine. Well it is time for closing arguments in this wonderful discussion of the federalist papers on constitution. Day your homework we. The people listeners is obvious of read the federalist papers. And if you find you have a favorite right to me and tell me what it is. And why jim rosen Hundred dot org and in order to inspire you to do the homework. I'm going to ask for closing statements from fester. Shannon judge mags cleaned. The first one is to you. Why should we. The people listeners. Read the federalist.

"People so this is great amount of communication that is happening over a period of time because it takes a while to build a coalition of the majority and during that time people are talking communicating. it's a kind of socratic method at the civic level of weeding out the The unjust in a row nias notions to build a consensus among majority. That is a more just and refined notion of the public. Good thank you so much. Tha that greg. What is your reaction to madison's defensive. The rise of political parties is persuasively consistent with the broader philosophy. He you're too late in the civilised was a sultan kherson effort to justify the party. He was increasingly the head. Will you know i. It's tempting to Say well it looks like Madison was it hypocritical or inconsistent he opposed factions and then he Was part of a a an a a political party But i think he. I think in fairness If you look at federalists ten madison recognized that there's always going to be different political interests. They're always going to be factions. So for example he said people who own property are going to have different interests from people who don't on property and that's always going to be the case and really what he was talking about was or what his goal was was to create a system that would weaken the power of faction sort of behind the veil without knowing what was going to happen. He said you know if we have a federal system if we have a republic Where we have representatives who have to represent large numbers of people If we have The different components of government elected at different times All of these things will weaken a faction and Addressed there bad effects. I don't think he had any Illusion that there were going to be factions or groups with different interests But from behind the veil without knowing whether his side was going to be the majority or some other side was going to be majority he was thinking of a system that would counteract the pernicious effects of faction now To say that after that system got going he got involved in political party is not really to say that. He's hypocritical on in fact. If he had been nefarious he would have designed a system that would have favored his interests. But i don't think that he did that. I think he did the opposite which was a to try to create a system That would further democracy not direct democracy representative democracy which would have the have counteracting effects on faction. So i don't. I don't feel him as being inconsistent or hypocritical in fact On the contrary he created a system Behind the veil of not knowing what was going to happen in the future that he thought would be best for the country by weakening factions and even later got involved in affection. He was subject to those rules. that the constituency would be divided. It will be represented by large numbers of people and so forth. Thanks so much for that. A cleaner persuaded. Well i don't think i answered The question you asked me very well so let me give another shot at that. Opt madison deliberately establishes. The republican party in the united states. In seventeen ninety two jefferson is his cohort in this and he writes a couple articles about this and explains himself. One is called parties and one is called candid state of parties and he sees the opposition the federalist party as the anti republican party by this point in seventeen ninety two. He's so frustrated with the hamiltonian. Federalists thrust of of government that he feels. It's necessary to organize this republican party. Not it's not in the contemporary sense of just organization to be a part to win. Elections sees it as putting the country on the right track on the republican smaller republican tract. Where we're not ignoring the people out in the countryside and just flooding the stock jobbers in new york Control things Or these enlightened statesmen or people who think they're enlightened statesmen at the seat of government that for this kind of republican government to work the way he envisioned it requires a genuine attention by the people in participation and governing by the people. Not just when you vote not just at election time but to be real citizens not like the ancient greeks were. That's all you do with. Your life is go to the assembly every day but to have a real meaningful part in this thing called self government and so for madison. The republican party. He's founding is not a faction it's the opposite it's meant to promote republicanism against what he sees as the tendency towards anti republicanism in the early days of the republic To set america on a course in which we could actually You know they were so afraid. When washington was an office that this would fail and that we can't do it without washington. We were not ready to walk alone as jefferson put it. Washington had to stay a second term because the country wasn't ready to walk alone and it's during this period that madison and jefferson our founding the republican party to bring the republican cause into the workings of government. And so for them. It's it's the culmination of the founding It republicanism so that it's not factions. That will rule but adjust majority. That will rule. Thank you very much for that greg. I want to put on the table. The main ideas of the federalist papers are different ways to organize them. Do you have any particular papers we've talked about. Of course ten and one and and are there any particular ones are group's of papers that you want people listeners to read more about well you know. I think it's hard to single out. Any i mean it'd be like If you gave me the bible and said which books are important which ones are not it would be hard to pick one or or another. But you know what i've always found to be very interesting Are the initial essays where they described the weaknesses of the articles of the government under the articles of confederation. And the need for a stronger union these These are not as philosophically deep as some of the other ones And yet when you do read them you recognize What they were trying to accomplish was to make the system better and i think without fully understanding some of the weaknesses of the The articles confederation and also the article that the The the ones that were comparing the government To state governments that already existed. I think it's hard to understand. You know what what what are. They specifically trying to do one of the things. That's very interesting. Is that nearly. Every provisions in the articles of confederation has a correlative a provision in the constitution often exchanged but You can sort of map. The articles confederation to the constitutional provision in the constitution that are nowhere found in the articles consideration But you can look very carefully at these a different provisions because they weren't starting from scratch They were they had a system and they were trying to persuade people to change the system. system had flaws but the head to identify those flaws and i think that in many ways although are somewhat overlooked These are some of the most important ones. And let me just give you some of the numbers. Fifteen to twenty two or really wants that. Mostly talk about the difficulties with the articles of confederation. And i think It's kind of the background that You need to understand why they were undertaking this project. Now this doesn't necessarily tell you what they were trying to accomplish But it does give you the background. So i i think fifteen twenty two or a very good place to start to get idea of why they were trying to create a new constitution. It wasn't that we didn't have a government was that we wanted a better one. Thank you very much for that of kaleen. In your introduction with jack off to the cambridge companion to the federalist no two ways of organizing the federalist one flags the division that greg just did focusing on half eighty the essays concerned with making the case for a national government and half beat the essays focused on an exposition of the constitution itself And then you say. Another approach is on the broader political thought and vision of each of the authors including madison's emphasis on republican government in hamilton hamilton's interest in state building commerce in foreign affairs and so forth..

"They included all of the kinds of very important philosophical and political science arguments. That professor sheehan remarks sort of ingenious meshing together of the two. Thanks well in the process of doing this. They described nearly every aspect of the constitution. And so if you're interested in knowing something about the original meaning of the constitution is a source that is perhaps the most frequently cited source is the federalist papers because Nearly everything that we talk about today has something said about it in the federalist papers. Now as you point out though i it is not necessarily imperfect source so for example many people site donald papers as a source of evidence of the original understanding of the constitution. That is to say well. What did the people who ratified the constitution at the various state ratifying conventions. What did they think it meant. And i think a strong counter argument is most of them. Didn't read the pharaohs papers in fact half of the federals papers a weren't written until over half of the states had already ratified it and one of the most cited up Papers up Paper number seventy eight. It wasn't written until after eight of the states had already ratified the constitution. But you know. I think counterargument to that is that it is a repository of the arguments. That supporters of the constitution were making and we know that the supporters won the day and something must have persuaded the ratifiers to adopt the constitution. And it was probably something similar to the argument that were in the federalist papers in other words. Even if people didn't directly read the federals papers the federals papers is a repository of the kinds of arguments that strong supporters the constitution were making and of course ultimately constitution was ratified kaleen. You have honored ansi c. By joining a really exciting project that called the founders library were putting online the sources that inspired the founders and having a pleasure of learning from you about what madison read a before the convention and while writing the federalist papers and how that influenced his distinctive understanding of faction as the triumph of passion over reason of self infrastructure devotion public. Good were brainstorming. This now but give we the people listeners sense of some of the main books that madison read Before and during and after the convention that influenced federal spits. Sure ba- before. I talk about that. Jeff let me just follow up on the the last question momentarily Jefferson said about the federalist papers that They're the best commentary on the principles of government that were ever written and so I agree with judge mags that you have to look deeper than just one argument year. There in terms of what people at the ratifying conventions were talking about whether or not they'd read the federalist papers or any one particular one with published yet because what hamilton madison j. Mostly him to and madison did was. They understood the principles that they were that that they at the federal convention were trying to implement into this document. You know it's not just words on paper. Those words are there for a purpose meant to accomplish something and the federalist papers has at depths of commentary. That's more than just describing article one article to article three. It's telling us what they are trying to accomplish. And how The founders went about that. And i don't know a better commentary than the federalist papers that does that. In terms of the purpose design the argument and action of the united states constitution So what did madison reed madison. Read most everything he he. He didn't read every book in jefferson's library but he was constantly borowing books from jefferson's library whenever they lived in the same city for example in philadelphia When the when the new government was just started Jefferson as was was as won't had to remodel his rental rental property and he built a whole library in it and madison was constantly borrowing books from him. In addition to the hundreds of books madison had packed and taken with him. Imagine that how how long it took to gift from helier to philadelphia And what you take with you. Mostly is your books. I mean that's madison. He had a rented room in mrs houses boarding house. Because he's a bachelor. He's there in this boarding house with all these other folks and and basically his room is just full of books Madison was the scholars. Scholar of all the founders. John adams wanted to be but i. I think it's madison. Who truly was He read aristotle. Plato xenophon through siddique's For as examples of the classic cicero he read he really studied monto skew Of course lock poof. Indoors sydney The list goes on and on they allred. Hobbs and didn't like him That that the and and madison comments on on rousseau once and in not very kind terms He didn't care much for rousseau. So madison's idea of how majority rules is not the rue sewing in general. Will he thought about all these things and he agreed with some people about something in disagreed about other things but he also had this independence Thought this spark of breads in which he's the one i believe and i'd love to hear what judge mag says. A madison thinks that what he's discovered is a way to make popular government. Good government in other words. They talked about liberty hangs in the balance. The eyes of the world are upon us. we are engaged in the great experiment of self government And what that means is kinda people govern themselves in a way that truly respects one another and it's not just majority faction Injustice and oppression. Madison thinks he's found a way to do that. And it has to do as You know jeff with this idea of an extensive territory and a larger number of population so the faction can counteract faction but it's more than just that negative faction counteracting faction. That's a big part of it. But there's a reason you want factions to be thwarted it so that the There's time for the majority to refine and enlarge its views to refine and enlarge the public views so that justice will rain rather than injustice. That's the goal of that Pugliese sets himself in the federalist papers to show that republican government can really work and that when the eyes of the world are upon america. We're going to show the world as robert frost once. Put it not just how things work but how democracy is meant. Thank you so much for that greg. Do you agree. Kaleen statements that madison discovered for the first time in the history of the world away of making popular government by good government. And the way that he did that was by Thwarting factions to give majority is time to refine enlarge the public views of the justice. When reason could prevail. And then after you tell us what you agree with that or want to amplify on it. Maybe introduced us to the idea of how madison achieve that. Well you know there. Probably i do agree with it. And i think they're probably several examples that could be given but i think perhaps the best one concerns the of federalism and madison's idea or at least explanation of the idea that having two governments rather than one Preserves individual liberty. I've been a very influential idea. I and idea that justice kennedy cited in various ways and it seems counter. Intuitive when you first hear about it that while all of a sudden there's going to be two governments regulating But when you realize that certain things will be left of the national government and others will be left to the states You realized that this has the tendency to break apart factions but to still allow local Interest had to be governed and we really.

"Oh there's a different way to live. That isn't so miserable. I completely agree with that because a lot of these people live inside of these cities because they feel like they need you for work. But i promise you live outside the city you own your own land you bring your own land up. You will feel so much more spiritually wealthy. Yeah yeah so what's next for you. I know if if you're able to pass what you wanna pass you won't be here forever. So what what would be next for you. What would be the bath. You know what i would dash. There's so many different things. I've got so many years ahead loved rated. My family enjoy that. I wanna get income taxes out. Federal income taxes gone and terminals and congress here federal income. Tax completely eliminated. Yes and so what would be not look. This is going to be a whole other to our conversation. I haven't heard you say this. So what what's the path path for that is just that you're taxed enough already. I mean literally you're taxed when you make money taxing spend that money then you're taxing to keep the things that you bought jewelry tax on and then when you die your tax on those that again. It's insane and so i think we need just completely over simplify our tax system to where basically you just spending significant amount of money on the tax would be higher on consumption right so you've sales tax sales tax property taxes. Okay but then you don't have to pay taxes on your income. And that i think they would make everything so much easier interesting. And because i'm really. I mean you believe the fourteenth of the eighteenth amendment to constitution that allow congress's start taxing your income. That was never supposed to be a thing right because really your money is your money in usually. I think that you know then. We should tax people if they would like to use our infrastructure in the markets that we have built in the system that we've built for you to be able to buy things then you pay tax to keep everything up keep provide for the military but the money that you make is not the government's of course. Yeah how's how's married life. What's that's relatively new. So i'll tell you being a good member of congress and being a good husband hard line to walk. I imagine my wife is tough as nails literally. She's her skin is so much thicker than minds. Gotta be. she's just bad ass super super attractive super smart super funny most fun down to earth woman i met and she still hanging out with. How does how does she deal with the personal attacks and vitriol towards you. She gets so much angrier than i do. I mean she she'll just choose out of their face. They believe what they want. They they have a concierge. Right redress the government but yeah but the personal attacks against me i mean she gets upset about it and then you know the the classic attacks. We always get your racially. I'm hispanic a haitian bound and so but but you know what. I really try to insulate her from the political world. I mean. I think i would come to fisticuffs whatever force their way to try interviewer. She just keep press away from the limelight. She's a she's in grow person. But i don't think she needs to suffer for my job. That's a good point. I mean i think that is part of our job is men is not not to shield them from of course but you're the protector saying between them and the chaos i believe. Yeah there's a great quote it's the real man gains renowned by standing between his family and destruction absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity. And so as you say that phanom. It's and so as you say that that's what i think you know. You're standing there between the media between the attack between this and the that between them and her with equanimity calmness clarity coolness.

I never had before. Yeah one hundred years ago. Nineteen twenty started off. Pretty rough than got even rougher zoe. I think maybe destined for some difficult times. And i believe you know.

How stacey madison turn day-old pita bread into a new snack. Stacy's pita chips and then went on to sell her brand one of the world's biggest food companies for a quarter of a billion dollars so there are some startup stories. Were most of us are probably thinking. I couldn't do that like squarespace. If you heard that episode you'll remember that anthony tusla was and is a gifted computer programmer. He had a highly specialized skill. Same story with steve madden. He literally designed and then fashioned shoes from leather and sold them but then there are the stories where most of us can actually imagine doing that. Thing ourselves like brian. Scooter moore who bought an old truck and offered to holloway people's trash. That's how he started one eight hundred got junk or lisa price who tinkered with homemade lotions and our kitchen. She went on to sell her brand. Carol's daughter till laurie out. Well today story is the second variety. The kind of story that almost anyone can relate to because it is such a simple and elegant idea. You take pita bread in cut into wedges you bake it throw some parmesan or seasoning on it and voila. You've got stacy's pita chips now. Even though the snack food industry today is a sixty. Six billion dollar juggernaut. Stacey madison did not have a grand master plan to disrupt snack foods in the late. Nineteen ninety s at that time. She and her boyfriend were literally selling pita wraps sandwiches from a sandwich cart in downtown boston. The pita chips were an afterthought a way to use up those extra pitas at the end of the day. Peter chips were never supposed to make stacey wretch but eventually frito lay would come knocking with a fistful of dollars but long before that long before stacey even sold her first sandwich she was on an entirely different path. She grew up in the suburbs near boston after college. Stacey went to california to get a master's degree in social work. She thought about becoming a psychologist like her dad but he wasn't so enthusiastic about that he felt. I should always become a social worker rather than go on to get my mba psychologists. He was like oh. That's no profession for a woman. That's one thing that he said was smiling. Look pretty and you will find a husband you know. I don't wanna make him sound like a jerk. He was like a caring loving man that put his family first but he was also a product of the fifties. Sure so once you get your master's degree I read the you. You actually moved to washington dc to To to what to do social work. Yes i worked in a group home for homeless pregnant drug addicted women and i have to tell you i mean i loved. The job was very rewarding. But at the time i think i made twenty two thousand dollars a year and it was really paycheck to paycheck and very hard to survive on that kind of income so i decided to go and get licensed and be able to private practice. Which eventually i did go on to do. But i've found it very isolating. No now i've got to go. And i unlocked the door and and i do you know marriage counseling and then my evening is over. I've seen five or six patients. And i closed the door behind me and i go home and i put a lot of effort into getting those degrees and licenses and realize that ultimately it probably just was not for me to your your I guess roughly thirty years old at this time and by the way you were engaged to break right now that ended. I think it was just mutual. I think ultimately it was. Just not the right thing. I think we just both agreed we had had the place picked out. We were going to get married. And it was kind of a bizarre story. But i went and i had a massage. This i know sounds like i'm going off on a tangent here but it will come back. I went and i had a massage. And the woman told me to take off all my jewelry imbaba blah blah blah and. I took it off. I put it in the dish guy massage. And i got up and i went to get dressed and i was like oh my god. All my jewelry is gone including my ring might engagement ring and i was just you know it was from his family. It was like i was just so upset and the girl was gone. She had gone gone like never to return. I think she took off to florida or somewhere. She never came back to work. She just kinda took all my stuff. But with rick and i was kind of like ring wasn't replaced immediately even and i don't care about the ring even if it's just a cigar brand or something like that that it kinda took so long replacing the ring that it forced both of us to look at. Should we really be doing this. Maybe this was a sign or something and ultimately. Yeah we just decided. Maybe we shouldn't get married. So you guys split up a meantime there was this guy mark andrews who you had met through your brother a few years before he was a friend. Did you guys start dating or would you just kind of touch. So he was still a friend. And i talked to him. All the time about my disengagement and all of that he was super supportive and eventually our friendship led to dating and he was getting his phd so he was doing an internship in hawaii and said well. Why don't you come out to hawaii. And what did you do in hawaii. So hawaiian was.
