"Single mother with two young sons. The year is nineteen Ninety-two. We learn the mom Marie Mitchell was globetrotting spider in the Cold War. The story brings us from the US to Martin, and then to procure Foucault centering on real life revolutionary figure Thomas Kara throughout the journey. We see marine navigate various places and systems as an outsider on the inside the book has received wide acclaim and earned its author comparisons to John Carre, and other spy novel. Greats will also breaking ground for presentation in the white male dominated genre, because our heroine. Marie is a black woman, I spoke with Lauren recently, and we began by talking about how this novel American spy was born out of a writing prompt. Take a listen. The prompt was to write a story set in suburbia that wasn't your typical suburban story. Not your typical middle class white, you know, focused on longing kind of narrative, so the first image that came into my mind was of a mother, who by all appearances looked like a typical suburban mom, then an assassination attempt would reveal that, that was not the case about her. Yeah. Because it says the first chapter nineteen Ninety-two Connecticut. Yes as suburban as we as we get so. Yeah. And then it mushrooms from there. And we also it's funny that I didn't know that before I read the book, and now that I'm thinking about just the description of the layout of the house, as the intruder is there, like, oh, she really does live in a suburban house in Connecticut. She's trying to scramble to find her gun. Yes. And as I was also thinking, picturing, her on a cul de sac maybe someplace where the neighbors might here be concerned about that. What, what we said suburban a different way, part of you think about these bourbon stories, a lot of them deal with unhappiness and station in life. And I don't like my life and life is boring. How did that play into your decision to make it a spinal or did it it did because I think just the exact opposite of that in my mind was a spine. How she's doesn't have the time to be feeling of this suburban on, we because of her previous life pressing back pressing on her her current one. Did you consider any other vehicles to tell her story was always going to be a thriller? I had a thriller in mind for most of it. I definitely merged thriller family drama because I knew I wanted to write a spy, but that was who understood her full story. We understood the choices that she she. She, she made that led her to, to this particular career path. And I feel like those kinds of things always start with the family. You know, the your family, really, that's your, that's the crucible that your personality and your, your choices are forged in. So I felt like for me. That was a natural thing to combine those two elements spy, and family drama, a someone who has obviously, studied creative writing, and this may sound like a really dumb question. But I'm truly curious when you were studying creative writing is there. Can you teach somebody how to write a thriller, or their parameters are there instructions, or there, or is it just another form of writing, and you use your magic nation? I think you can teach writing. I think that there are many things to teach. In fact, about writing, and I'm very strict and conservative about that. You know, I think we need to understand, we've been telling stories as a society for thousands of years we've come up with some patterns that deserve to be, analyzed, and considered. But I don't think as you're saying, no, I don't think that we can teach imagination. You know, you kind of have to offer a bit. Every writer has to figure out what the voice is going to be like, and how they're going to tell a story. So I think maybe it's a bit of a cheap answer. But both you can you can definitely teach this construction. But then, you know inspiration and how you tell a story kind of that that's comes down to the individual writer. So interesting, I'm very conservative about certain point. What are you conservative and strict about? We'll just the fact that, you know, there are story structures that exist. And then you in order to subvert them, you really need to understand them very well. And, and I think that a few people, you know, at certain points in their career, feel like I'm just going to hurt them without knowing them, well enough to do, so, so, you know, when I teach and I'm actually teaching a class at starts on thirteenth. The first thing I will tell those students is. You know, don't do that. I want to know that, you know, how story functions like, in terms of beginning middle and end in terms of getting to a climax of story and then resolving it before you do the more. The robe, gray the more experimental type of writing I always describe it as, as like with music jazz musician, you have to know your scales note your theory, and then you can improvise in between, but you need that foundation. Yeah. I think about even with, you know, journalists with these kind of jobs, you have to have a structure for the interview for the show, and then you can. I completely agree. I think visual artists, also a quote, that's often tributed to Picasso as you have to learn the rules before you can break them. He didn't actually say that. I don't think but you can understand why. All right. Lauren Wilkinson the name of her book is American spy, her new novel, why what into that went into the decision to have us learn the story through letters. Well, so when I, I wrote this book it was in third person and Maria was a bit of a mystery to me, she wouldn't reveal her secrets to me, either as the writer because she end at which made sense because she was a spy, and our whole, you know, what has been keeping her alive up until this point is her ability to keep secrets? So I switched it to first person to try to get a little closer to her. And then when I switched it to her writing to her sons, the only people who I can imagine her being completely honest with, that's when the book kind of started to come together for me as a writer in, in telling them the truth about herself my main character sorry to tell it to me, it was weird a little surreal, but yeah, that was my experience with that. What was the character keeping from you? The third person. What couldn't you get? I mean just the, the, the, you know, she in the novel is approached and asked to help destabilize on cars government, and so her role in that I couldn't access until she started telling the truth to her to her twin sons because you had to explain it. She had to also kind of come to grips with it. She yes, right? And also question for later down. But I think we're kind of here at this point in the conversation. One of the things I really interesting and thoughtful and made me think about things, and I think that's what my life or things, I've witnessed is that sense of you being given assignment to do something which in the process of doing so you realizes percents at odds with your own personal integrity. Yes, what do you do because you're someone who wants to do your job? Well, and you've been sort of trained and programmed to do that. But you know, you know, she realizes going into destabilize this country that maybe that isn't. The right thing to be doing her. Loyalty is assumed and then I think she starts to realize why and, and does this loyalty serve me does his patriotism, serve me and I think it's a difficult thing for her to confront that it may not that it really isn't you wrote in an interview or somebody's talking to you about how you came to develop Marie and her character. And you sit them, so interesting. You see a spy complex emotional, life. Why was it important in some ways, I mentioned when we went multidimensional characters, but why did you want to explore her emotions because she's a black woman and I wanted I didn't want her to appear from nowhere. I wanted her to have an emotionally complicated life because I you, I gravitate toward black female characters, who, who have a full range of emotions, and I want to see more of them. In the world. So I figured, you know, this is my first book, I may not get another shot gonna give they give it as much as I can. A lot of why I'm a young adult novel seem to be a little bit ahead of grownup in terms of the way they describe women, and people of color, and even men. I mean, they just seem to have more access to their emotions these books seem to. I don't know. They seem to be a head of everybody terms of emotional intelligence and people's and the willingness for the reader. Take it in considering the readers so much younger muchly. Grownup fiction. Why do you think that is? I'm curious from your point of view, s someone who also teaches writing. I that is a hard for me to say it, must have something to do with the audience, you know, that, that teen, I think that maybe why literature is written for an audience who is, is examining those feelings for the first time. And, and so, you know, the books are saying this is okay. This is normal. You know, you feel this thing we all sort of feel this way. So I think they're instructive in that way. And there's there's room for that. Maybe the assumption with adult literature is is that going up ready? Have those feelings in Czech manage them have experienced them, which is a bolt assumption? Yeah. So I so I still think it's important to kind of give a whole range of experience in the books that are written for adults too. So for listeners, you're like, okay, tell me more about Marie. I need to know. More about Maria Mitchell, can you describe her a little bit for our listeners? Well, she is a little emotionally stunted. And I think that's why I put in, you know, her her her sister is a major character. Her father is a major character, her mother. I put that into kind of express that and why she is the way that she is because I don't think that she can she's very, very intelligent. And is aware of her intelligence and is. But still is kind of shunted aside at, at work. She's working for the FBI and the eighties. So that felt like that would be very true experience for a black woman in this environment. But she does have a an emotional blind spot with the people that she really loves. And so she feels that she someone who it's difficult to trick. But I think that people who work in her emotional blind, and one kind of surrounds her sister. They're able to trick her quite easily. So what how does ambition play into her decision making, I think she's incredibly ambitious and Fink. And so I think she is makes a lot of choice based choices based on that, and Bishen. She wants to see herself. She wants to be successful. You know, in, in a way, a very strict definition of that, that she starts with, you know, she wants to be, especially in charge because these are the. That's the vision that she has. And then I think she starts ask yourself in the second half of the book. Why do I wanna do that? And what do I have to do to get to do that? And what do I have to give up to to get that? My guess is Lauren Wilkinson, the name of her book is American spy, and it's interesting because the covers American spy and all crackle, and it's a picture of black woman, and she's draped in the flag of Burkina Faso, correct. No flag. But you know with the colors. African American flag colors. Yeah. It's such an interesting cover. What did you think? When you first I loved it. Yeah. I was really, really excited. They gave me three or four options. And I knew immediately that this is the one that I that I wanted. Yes, what does it? What.

"Wrap up the trading day on Wall Street. Good afternoon. David Johnson kid after do Chris our, you know, they're just never easy anymore. This was another beating I it was exciting. But a beating three hundred sixty eight points up at the best reading then down two hundred two at the worst reading of the day, and we closed little closer to the bad side. The good side. Dow was down fifty three points at twenty four thousand three seventy the NASDAQ was up eleven the SP average was virtually unchanged point in the broad market less than three hundred more stocks down than up. So actually as I look at it. I guess this was more of an unchanged marketed. Anything else volume was lighter than normal nine hundred eighty three million shares does it was an exciting day. Dow early on Wall Street seem to be seeing the good side of everything there were some power. Positive comments and speculation out of China. Maybe there were gonna cut the tariffs on US made cars and some Chinese officials in talk to the US officials, and they were working at a time line. And then in France macaroni had pledged hiked the minimum wage and also promised them tax relief. So they were coming down the UK's bought some time can like we did with the budget. They've kicked the Brexit vote down the road to January twenty first. So the pressure's off on Brexit. So we paved the way for a pretty good rally, and we had it was faltering a little bit. And it was just kind of running out of steam. And you're it was about the point where you sit and see are we going to, you know, be selling into the strength. Are we gonna by the strength to get this thing turned around? Well, they started selling into the strength, and it seemed to coincide with a really just bazaar fight. That was going on a verbal fight. There was going on a Bong Pelosi and and Schumer and the president of the United States and it played out before cameras, and it was very vocal. And it went on for ever like fifteen minutes, and it was all about shutting down the government and add the votes coming up. And that's another one of those things that always kicked down the cans kicked down the road. Yeah, we have you know, a budget resolution that's continuing and we'll talk about this later on. But now the question is will they shut down the government at the end of the week if the walls not included in they were obviously fighting about that. So this was really not on the list of things that wall. Street was worried about it till around eleven fifteen this morning. Did we got really worried about it? And it killed off the rally crudes up seventy two cents fifty one seventy two goals down a dollar and a half at twelve forty seven ninety ten year rates up to two point eight percent. So after being way up and then big way dad, we closed kind of mixed with the Dow down fifty three, but the NASDAQ up eleven we're getting those mixed signals on the economy to take for example, the national federation for independent business small business optimism index. This things been coming out for decades, and it's really uncanny. The number that came out today was strong anything over one hundred strong. It was four point eight. But then we're supposed to be one. Oh seven. So are they getting disappointed, and they're the big drivers of the economy? We're going to talk to the man who who puts together, William Dunkelberg. Dr William Dunkelberg, the chief economist for the NFL tonight at six twenty ounce. CEO spotlight. David johnson. Newsradio eighty KRLD. Yes.

"Eh? Your. Eight. Suspenseful and dramatic account of rival scientific expeditions that came to the American west of you and study this rare phenomenon Barron enables us to understand what drew them to the eclipse, and what this episode tells us about the changing role of science in American culture, that's a quote from Paul Israel, author of Edison a life of invention. We're speaking with the author of American eclipse, David baron, a nation's epic race to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory of the world. We ended up giving two books away gave one to Alison Vancouver Washington and Judy in monument, Oregon, so enjoy the books guys. And again that's called American eclipse, and we're speaking with the author David baron. Do you ever got a couple of questions for you, some maybe a little more scientific some maybe not as much, but maybe a little silly. I don't know. I'm going to clear that up done. Maria. I'm always asking silly questions. I know I know it's in your DNA. It is it is steeped in his blood. But I wanna know would you talk about young Thomas, Edison? First of all, I didn't know Edison. But it's actually a young Edison was such a good looking man until I have your book and saw his picture, but you talked the leverage of the eclipse burnishes scientific credentials, but listen on out a little bit. Well, so right. So Thomas Edison, wasn't equips chaser. At least he was for one eclipse in eighteen seventy eight he was just thirty one years old. He had just become a global celebrity because of invention of the phonograph and that summer he ended up going out to Wyoming to the wild west to study, a total eclipse with a bunch of strana murders. And this was a time when Edison who later in life was quite adamant that he was not a scientist. He was an inventor. But the the young Edison wanted the respective scientists. And he wanted. Astronomy. So he he invented a device that no one's ever heard of today. It was called the Dimitur, and it was really sensitive heat detector, basically, sensitive electric thermometer that he was going to use to study the the this aura around the eclipsed sun called the solar corona to see if it gave off heat as well as light. And it was Edison's attempt to show that he was really a scientist. You also talk about James, Craig Watson, son, professional bragging rights for new planets and asteroids. I mean, some people may think like back in that time of eighteen seventy eight like, what did these people actually know back in the eighteen hundreds? But did they know quite a bit? Or this is all you know, what planets and asteroids where okay. Right. So I mean, you know, these were very smart people, but working at a time when we knew a lot less, and they were still just trying to figure out how many planets were in the solar system and back in eighteen seventy eight. There was good reason to believe that a mercury was not the closest planet to the sun. And there was so a lot of strong numbers thought that there was another planet, and they called it Vulcan coastal anyone who watched Star Trek before Volkan showed up on Star Trek. It actually was thought to be a real planet. But no one had ever seen it because it was so close to the sun was thought you couldn't eat in the daytime. And you would it would never be up in the sky at night. Well in eighteen seventy eight during the total clips when the moon Baloch, the bright sun for three minutes, this astronomer, you mentioned James Craig Watson, he was determined to find the planet Vulcan and the big headline out of the eclipse of eighteen seventy eight what did he found Volkan which? Of course, we don't was wrong. But at the time people didn't know it was wrong. And they thought that this planet actually existed amazing actually after people on Facebook live. That's watching this right now listening to us on there. You could see Zach doing the Vulcan. What is that recall that live long and prosper? I can't even do that. When my fingers. Rubber bands. I do I need the rubber bands. Because if I tried doing it, and it's close to my nose. It looks like we're totally lobsters. So you know, and I wanted to ask you to about Maria Mitchell who's down on. That's also she actually aimed to use the event to show what women could do in science. I guess women that prevalent then right? And so yeah. Her name was shelled Maria. But it actually was pronounced Mariah. And he was she was by far the most famous female scientists in America in the nineteenth century. She was an astronomer and in eighteen forty seven she discovered a comet and received a gold medal from the king of Denmark for that in the comic came to be known as miss Mitchell's comet, and as you can imagine this was a time when there were very few women who were able to take to become scientists or even get educated assigned to and she taught at Vassar college, which was an all female college at the time just founded and in eighteen seventy eight when all these men were planning eclipse expeditions out to the wild west. She. Took it upon herself to assemble an all female eclipse expedition to Denver to prove that women really could be scientists and to get the American public to wake up and it had a really important effect. You know, pretty amazing actually way back when when you think about it back in the eighteen hundreds on how the world was. But also I wanted to say to when you were talking about the path of this eclipse, the total eclipse it's gonna go over Nashville right over Nashville, which WGN part Walker in the gang out there. They they run his actually on three stations out there in Nashville. And so that's kind of cool. They're going to be right on top of a two. So oh, yeah. No. In fact, Nashville is going really big with it. They're calling it the music city eclipse and encouraging tourists to come in Nashville is the the largest city fully in the path of the total eclipse on August twenty first but parts of Kansas City and St Louis are in the path of the total. Eclipse Lincoln, Nebraska, Portland, Oregon is just outside. And again, I want to emphasize all. All of North America. We'll see at least a partial eclipse, and so at Atlanta's very close to the total. Eclipse Portland's very close to the total eclipse Seattle's not too far, but the total eclipses where the real exciting stuff is going to happen and anyone who lives within a reasonable drive of this path of totality. And you mentioned my website American hyphen clips dot com. If you have a page all about the August twenty first eclipse, including links to a NASA has an interactive map, and you can go on there and see precisely where this path goes if you can get yourself into the path of totality. I would encourage you to do it because it is a million times more exciting to be in the path of the total eclipse, then to see the partial eclipse, okay, David we back out of this break. This silly congenital got some questions for you. So we're speaking with David baron, the author of American eclipse a nation's epic grace to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory of the world. We have another book. Give away. So if you're the second collartoo to call and right now at eight four four three zero five seventy eight hundred that's eight four four three zero five seven eight zero zero you'll speak with Quinn, and we'll give you a copy of the book compliments of David baron.

So I wanted to ask you to you about Maria Mitchell, who's then that's also she actually aimed to use the event to show what women could do in science. I guess not that prevalent, right? And so yeah. Her name shelled Maria, but it actually was pronounced Mariah. And he was she was by far the most famous female scientists in America in the nineteenth century. She was an astronomer and in eighteen forty seven she discovered a comet and received a gold medal from the king of Denmark for that in the comic came to be known as miss Mitchell's comet, and as you can imagine this was a time when there were very few women who were able to take to become scientists or even get educated scientists, and she taught at Vassar college, which was an all female college at the time just abounded and in eighteen seventy eight when all these men were planning eclipse expeditions out to the wild west. She took. Took it upon herself to assemble an all female eclipse expedition to Denver to prove that women really could be scientists and to get the American public to wake up and it had a really important effect. Pretty amazing actually way back when you think about it back in the eighteen hundreds on how the world was. But also I wanted to say to when you were talking about the path of this eclipse, the total eclipse it's going to go over Nashville right over Nashville, which WGN aspect Walker in the gang out there. They run his actually on three stations out there in Nashville. And so that's kind of cool. They're going to be right on top of a two. So oh, yeah. No. In fact, Nashville is going really big with it. They're calling it the music city eclipse, encouraging tourists to come in Nashville is the largest city fully in the path of the total eclipse on August twenty first but parts of Kansas City and St Louis are in the path of the total. Eclipse Lincoln, Nebraska, Portland, Oregon is just outside. And again, I want to emphasize all. All of North America will see at least a partial eclipse, and so at Atlanta's very close to the total. Eclipse Portland's very close to the total eclipse Seattle's not too far, but the total eclipses where the real exciting stuff is going to happen and anyone who lives within a reasonable drive of this path of totality. And you mentioned my website American hyphen eclipse dot com, if you have a page all about the August twenty first eclipse, including links to a NASA has an interactive map, and you can go on there and see precisely where this path goes if you can get yourself into the path of totality. I would encourage you to do it because it is a million times more exciting to be in the path of the total eclipse, then to see the partial eclipse, okay, David we come back out of this break. This is silly congenital got some questions for you. So we're speaking with David baron, the author of American eclipse nations EPA grace to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory of the world. We have another book. Give away. So if you're the second caller to call in right now at eight four four three zero five seventy eight hundred that's eight four four three zero five seven eight zero zero you'll speak with Quinn, and we'll give you a copy of the book compliments, David baron.

"Hey suspenseful in dramatic account of rival scientific expeditions that came to the American west of you and study this rare phenomenon Barron enables us to understand what drew them to the eclipse in what this episode tells us about the changing role of science in American culture, that's a quote from Paul Israel, author of Edison a life of invention. We're speaking with the author of American eclipse David baron nations epic race to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory of the world. We ended up giving away we gave one to in Vancouver Washington and Judy in monument, Oregon, enjoy the books guys. And again that's called American eclipse, and we're speaking with the author David baron. Do you ever got a couple of questions for you, some maybe a little more scientific some maybe not as much, but maybe a little silly. I don't know. Clear that up. Maria. I'm always asking silly questions. I know I know it's in your DNA. It is it is in his blood. But I wanna know would you talk about young Thomas, Edison? First of all, I didn't know Edison, actually young. Edison was such a good looking man check your bookings is picture. The leverage of the eclipse to burnish his scientific credentials. Listen on that a little bit. Well, so right. So Thomas Edison, wasn't eclipse chaser. At least he was for one eclipse in eighteen seventy eight he was just thirty one years old. He had just become a global celebrity because of his invention of the phonograph. And that summer he ended up going out to Wyoming out to the wild west to study, a total eclipse with a bunch of astronomers and this was a time when Edison who later in life was quite adamant that he was not a scientist. He was an inventor. But the the young Edison wanted the respective scientists and he wanted to do astronomy. So he he invented a device that no one's ever heard of today. It was called the Dimitur, and it was a really sensitive heat detector, basically, sensitive electric thermometer that he was going to use to study the the this aura around the. Eclipsed sun called the solar corona to see if it gave off heat as well as light. And it was dozens attempt to show that he was really a scientist. You also talk about James, Craig Watson, professional bragging rights for new planets and asteroids. I mean, some people may think back in that time of eighteen seventy eight like, what did these people actually know back in the eighteen hundreds? But did they know quite a bit? Or this is all you know, what planets and asteroids where Kato right? So I mean, you know, these were very smart people, but working at a time when we knew a lot less, and they were still just trying to figure out how many planets were in the solar system and back in eighteen seventy eight. There was good reason to believe that mercury was not the closest planet to the sun. And there was so a lot of astronomers thought that there was another planet, and they called it Vulcan cause anyone who watched Star Trek before Volkan showed up on Star Trek. It actually was thought to be a real planet. But no one had ever seen. It because it was so close to the sun was thought you couldn't see it in the daytime. And you would it would never be up in the sky at night. Well in eighteen seventy eight during the total eclipse when the moon Baloch, the bright sun for three minutes, this astronomer, you mentioned James Craig Watson, he was determined to find the planet Vulcan, and the big headline out of the eclipse of eighteen seventy eight was that he found Volkan, which of course, we don't was wrong. But at the time people didn't know it was wrong. And they thought that this planet actually existed amazing actually for people on Facebook live. That's watching us right now in listening to us on there. You could see Zach doing the Vulcan. What does that recall that live long and prosper? I can't even do that. With my fingers. Rubber bands. I do I need the rubber bands. Because if I tried doing it, and it's close to my nose. It looks like a totally different thing. Lobsters.

"Of rival scientific expeditions that came to the American west of you and. Study this rare phenomenon Barron enables us to understand what drew them to the. Eclipse in what this episode tells us about the changing role of science in American. Culture that's a quote from. Paul, Israel author of Edison a life of. Invention we're speaking with the author of American eclipse David baron, nations epic race to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory of the. World we ended up giving two books. Away we gave one to Alison Vancouver Washington and Judy in, monument. Oregon so enjoy the books. Guys and, again that's called American eclipse and we're speaking with the, author David. Baron do you ever got a couple of questions for? You some maybe a little more. Scientific some maybe not as, much but maybe a little. Silly I don't know Made it clear. That up done Maria I'm. Always asking silly questions I know. I know. It's in, your DNA it is, it is but I wanna know would? You talk about, young Thomas Edison first. Of, all I didn't know Edison actually a young Edison was such a good looking man in your book inside is picture The leverage of the eclipse. To burnish burnishes. Scientific credentials listen on that a little bit well so right so Thomas Edison wasn't eclipse chaser at least he was for, one eclipse in eighteen seventy eight he was just thirty one years old he had just become a global celebrity. Because of his invention, of the phonograph and that's summer he ended up going out to Wyoming out to. The wild west to study a total eclipse with a bunch of astronomers. And this was a time when Edison who later in life was quite adamant that he was not a scientist he was an inventor but the the young Edison wanted the respective. Scientists and he wanted to. Do astronomy. So he he invented a device. That no. One's ever, heard of today it, was called the Dimitur and it was? A really sensitive, heat detector basically sensitive. Electric, thermometer that he was going to use to study the the this aura around the Eclipsed sun called the solar corona to see. If it gave off heat as well as light and it was Edison's attempt to show that he was really. A scientist you also, talk about James Craig Watson professional bragging rights for new planets and asteroids I mean. Some people, may think like back in that time of eighteen seventy eight. Like what did these people actually know back in the eighteen hundreds but did they know quite a bit or this is all you know what planets and asteroids where they Right so I mean these were very smart people, but working at a time when we knew a lot less and they were still just trying to figure out how many planets were in the solar. System and back in eighteen seventy eight there was good. Reason, to believe that mercury was not the closest planet to the sun and there was so a lot. Of astronomers. Thought that there, was another. Planet and they called it Volkan customer anyone who watched Star Trek before Vulcan showed up on Star Trek it actually was thought to be a real planet but no one had ever seen it because it was so close to the. Sun was thought you couldn't see it in the daytime and you would. It would never be up in, the, sky, at night well in eighteen seventy eight. During the, total eclipse when the moon Baloch the bright sun for three minutes this. Astronomer you mentioned James Craig Watson he was determined to find the, planet Vulcan and the big headline out of the eclipse of eighteen seventy eight? Was that he found Vulcan Which of course we don't was wrong but at the time people didn't know it was wrong and. They thought, that this planet, actually existed. Amazing actually after people on Facebook live that's watching this right now and listening to us on there you could see Zach doing the Vulcan What is that recall that live long and prosper I. Can't even do that with my fingers Rubber bands I do, I need the rubber bands because. If I tried doing it and it's close to. My nose it looks at me totally lobsters So And I wanted to ask you to about Maria Mitchell is then that's also she actually aimed to use the event to show what women could do in, science I guess, women? Right not that prevalent, then? Right and, so, yeah her name was spelled, Maria but it actually was pronounced Mariah and he was she was by far the most famous female scientists in. America in the nineteenth, century she was an. Astronomer and in eighteen forty, seven she discovered a comet and received a gold medal from the king of Denmark for that in the comic came to be known as miss Mitchell's. Comet and as you can, imagine this was a time when there were very few women who were able to take to become scientists or even get educated assigned. To and she taught at Vassar, college which was an all female college at the, time just abounded and in eighteen seventy. Eight when all these men were planning clips expeditions out to the wild, west she took it upon herself to assemble an. All Female. Eclipse expedition, to Denver to prove that women really could. Be scientists and to get the American public to wake up and it had a really important fact pretty amazing actually way back when when you think about it back in the eighteen hundreds on how, the world was, but? Also I wanted to, say? To when, you, were talking about the path, of this eclipse the total eclipse it's going to go over Nashville right over Nashville which WGN as Bart Walker. In the gang out, there they they run. His actually on three stations, out there in Nashville and so that's kinda cool they're going to be right on top of a two so oh yeah no in fact Nashville going. Really big with it they're, calling it the music city eclipse encouraging tourists to come in Nashville is the largest city fully in the path of the total eclipse. On August twenty first but parts, of Kansas City and St Louis are in the, path of the total eclipse Lincoln Nebraska. Portland Oregon is just outside and again I want to emphasize all of, North America we'll see at least a partial eclipse And so at Atlanta's very close to the total eclipse Portland's very close to the total eclipse Seattle's not too far but the total eclipse is where the real exciting stuff is going to happen and anyone who lives within a reasonable drive of this path of totality, and you mentioned my website American hyphen eclipse dot com if you have a page all about the August twenty. First eclipse including links to a NASA has an, interactive map and you can go on there and see, precisely, where this path goes if you can get yourself into the, path of totality I would. Encourage you to do it because it is a million. Times. More exciting. To, be in the path of the total eclipse. Then to see. The partial eclipse okay David weaken back out of this break this is silly congenital got some questions for you so we're speaking with David baron, the author of American eclipse nations epigraph to catch the shadow of the moon and win the glory.

Mitchell has some conditions she wanted an observatory complete with a good telescope and departments for. Herself and her. Father she got them so Mitchell became. The country's first female astronomy professor Mitchell was born two hundred years ago today and then it her father. Was an amateur astronomer and he taught Maria how, to use the telescope her comet discovery led to membership. In several science organizations the first woman to belong to any, of them at Vassar Mitchell established a busy astronomy program beginning. In eighteen seventy three she and her students took daily. Photographs of the sun one of the earliest photographic records, of sunspots They also journeyed to solar eclipses Yet. Mitchell's most important contributions were social she advocated women's rights and was a founder of the American. Association for the advancement of, women she fought for equal pay which she got and encouraged her students to work part. Time to help them be independent, Mitchell died in eighteen eighty nine but several of her students and their. Students made important contributions to astronomy and although, it no longer, watches the stars the observatory building she wanted.
