Clyburn calls for shutting Dem primary down, canceling debates after Biden surge
"Got to find out anything else you knows about chaos now is a procedure that chief isn't this top security what should we activate the code of silence they're trying to put the they're gonna put show pride in a cone of silence there's an article in the American thinker about putting Joe Biden in a cone to keep them from getting in trouble house minority whip a majority whip rather Jim Clyburn is suggesting the Democratic National Committee step in and cancel the remaining presidential primaries and debates if it appears Joe Biden is favored to win the nomination freight of what he might do to **** defeat from the jaws of victory to watch imposes notice this apparently divide vice president former vice president's speeches have been averaging between seven and twelve minutes to keep him from gasping on the campaign trail joining us now Republican strategist Matt McCauley act Matt the Democrats were first nervous about Bernie Sanders and now they're nervous about the mouth on Joe Biden yeah I mean it's this campaign's change quite a bit last two weeks I did look like Sanders was going to be the nominee going into South Carolina and and other firewall held for provide me one by such a large margin that carried him to the transmitters on super Tuesday and then on on on last Tuesday so yeah look bye bye needs a different candidate Sanders no question about that he does not create into heaven on the left I've been a long time is a really long record as we all know he makes mistakes you verbally he does on the campaign trail regularly and and now that he is you know really becoming the presumptive nominee the Democrats are really trying to tighten up around him we just installed a new campaign manager other cutting back his advance is going to be doing less interviews and yes his speeches are going to be far shorter instead of being a thirty minutes or an hour there could be maybe seven ten minutes at most hoping to to prevent him from creating the kind of moment that would change the campaign or give up something they could really use against him he's just a figure head is just the party that's running for office well it's yeah I mean the you know the Democrats know that there's a lot stake here and while there I think you know they they were happy that they were able to stop very Sanders that doesn't mean that divide is perfect he's not perfect you know he's a vestige of of a different of another era he's a white male to time the Democrats want anything other than that in as a sub for me he has a long record of of you know saying things that are pretty ridiculous even in the last few weeks he's confused what office he's running for what state he's in just really basic things and so they're misused questions about his stamina and his capacity the last few months and now of course this race enters a different phases he continues to get close to locking up the nomination did you know the the the stakes are going to rise the pressure's going to rise I don't think they can hide him forever but while we're in this intermediate phase before he becomes the actual nominee we moved to channel action they may be able to cut back things a little bit ma'am can I ask Republican strategist with us is it's interesting though that you know there were a lot of things that trump said on the campaign trail that everybody thought that's it his campaigns over somehow he managed to not like turn them around so that they weren't gaps he sort of own them what's the difference between these two candidates on one hand it seems as though some of the things that by just saying indicates maybe there's a problem with mental acuity in this situation as opposed to president trump to sort of says what's on his shoulder what's the difference between the two candidates yeah it's a little bit of a difference because you know the question the question with Biden's really you know does is he up to this is he is he okay what is his health status monitor running serious questions and and rob were voted out on asking them I mean these questions I would ask for months and months and months on on a major media outlets even by Democrats even by democratic candidates running for president they've been asked so it's not a not a new subject yeah you're right with trump I mean he's very very you know nontraditional is very unusual as a national figure yeah and I think you know his bluntness is is our president right you you know you you can come to expect that now about trump it's not a question of whether he has the sort of mental capacity to do the job or continue doing the job he's doing the job now so there's not much question about that with Biden he's not done the job he's been vice president but it's not the same thing and so the question is can he can handle it with pine and that's question he's gonna have to answer every single day for the election all right it's the stuff of Republican Mistretta just ma'am a callback thanks for your time this morning we appreciate it

You sounded like you had years of therapy when you said that it was just a look I'm still searching for therapists found yeah well. You are from one of the most functional families on television. This is definitely the Roy's or the Kokin okay there's no. I don't know you'd be the best judge who is worse. what's a functional family. They just haven't seen one yeah. I don't know they're all might have moments of functionality but we don't yes and I think with this show. It's a bit like they're not more or less kind of with all their power and money and all that stuff they're still just like like the rest of us equally is thank you can say any. I just wanted to say that you came in saying it sounds rhythmic and melodic coming from Your Lips. It's just incredible but I need the money in Jilin and to set this up because there are still some people that haven't seen succession what I don't talk to them saying they haven't seen it. They're behind behind on season one but now season two comes season one had gotten you know a lot of attention but now people are watching it more. It's got five five emmy nominations including best series so I'm sure your heads are even more huge and yeah you never before amazing racing with the biggest thing ever game of what people see you on the street. Do they recognize you now as Roman. Yeah I've gotten a few of those. and mostly people call me. That's actually happened a lot and it's not it's like I feel like they almost feel like you know Wallace Shawn Being People Oh yelling inconceivable at him when he walks on the street one thinks and they're like the first one to do that right like that. Show you're like. I know that's the show I mean. I realize I don't know but the the guy sure is high saw somebody mistake someone for you and rory said to his it could have been right yeah. I don't think so I would have known and they said there's no succession and I thought again. One of the great great compliment would be new. I haven't heard that one. I feel like they said no you the past when you were hailing a cab today. There's there's Mike that was great but his insults are just golden. They're just wonderful. When Roman says something to you. Yeah it's pretty great just no filter whatever comes comes to the brain and he handled the brother who is going through so many traumas and and is in Rehab and everything is happening and you know he's unshaved unshaved candle. He's looks like this do you help them to create these There's like okay so they write. It and it's pretty horrible. Some of the things things that Roman has to say and then some of the other writers they start throwing alternative lines out there and to my mind I think they would deny this but they get a little competitive with each other about like who can come up with the most horrible thing and then I want to play the game and I like throwing my horrible things that I can say from looking at what the guy dressed and stuff so sometimes. I don't like to let like if I'm insulting the actor. I don't like to let them know when it's mine and when it's there's sometimes if it's too insulting on Mike that wasn't me that we're not. GonNa use uh-huh well good goals. Try to make the extra go along because I have so many questions and I don't WanNa be too inside baseball just because the show's not what about me and it should be what I'm interested in yourself but yes it should but didn't allow but we should see a clip of you so so let's see here. He is Kieran Galkin in succession season two so you're not using. That's me that's me I recognize I yeah yeah look at that your idea to just sit on the yeah. I improvised that sitting up there. How cool probably with the glove in on the water just went right up. Stay saying that it's interesting because but those of you I haven't watched it yet the PEOP- The kids in this family this whatever it is it is an empire. I guess it is all want to take daddy's place place sure what's the case. You can make for Roman don't you. I think in a way he's sort of the most like his dad. which you know. I think that a lot of times makes really quick decisions and sort of just goes with gut sometimes and can be a real Pani. Ask kind of scary and I think Roman has that thing where sometimes if you know you get his attention. He's GonNa rip any. You and it can be a little scary so I don't know. I think there's a case for him. I thank you know he's done but he's smart. I think he knows how to basically a situation to his advantage and his advantages the companies then you know hearing you have this career. I mean everybody remembers you and your brother and home alone and we see that and that was just child actor stuff but I remember you most from Igby. It goes down and I saw that movie. I love the whole movie but what you didn't it was just amazing. Well thank you seemed to disappear yeah what what thousand to two thousand and two then where is he. What did you did dropped off the map kind of did like a bit of a freak out that movie came out when I was twenty and I kind of remember there were like some projects lighting up that I was suddenly being offered offered instead of auditioning for and that was a strange thing and I can't remember who but somebody used the word career and now I have a career. I found myself like twenty. I'm doing it for like fourteen years and never once made that decision for myself and I was like I don't. I never even questioned if this is something I want to do and I kinda just looked out and I think learned that a lot of people around that age kind of freak out about what they wanna do with their lives. I was just already kind of doing it but having having that same freak out at the same time but you're living it I mean because McCauley's started it in your family right. We actually started around the same thing yeah but his his success in home alone and I think the thing with that too is when I've always said that. If you get to witness or experience fame fame like that secondhand you would never pursue it. I don't think that's a nice thing like that's not exactly a nice thing that happened to him. At the age of not not in it wasn't nice for him to walk down the street and people like chase him and stuff. That wasn't that Nice so I'm if I'm sort of figuring this out now in real time. Maybe you're my founded charge anytime. You're great but it's that. I think if I started to find if I'm fit go back now and think about it when I was twenty. I started finding myself to be a little successful in things. We're coming probably had a bit of a panic. Let's roll this back when he tried to get some control over it because I've seen it. Get completely out of control with like a child what was happening in your family. You brought that up before who was saying to all of view you should act. You should be in this well. My father was an actor before I think he actually comes from a family of actors or performers of some kind of sort of like you know glass family type thing I think him and his three siblings all did some to some extent kids and then if I'm remembering correctly and sometimes times again information wrong like the are some neighbors ran over the stage managers of the theater nearby in the neighborhood so I think it got to a point was I was like. Oh we need a kid. I show my neighbor's got seven of them name of sex and age we got take here yeah and my father then kind of pushed that he like took headshots of us in like. I think it was like Rupert Park in New York and sent us on auditions and stuff and it actually kind of happened pretty quickly. You weren't born scarred by the family experience. No I just think it's like not a good relationship with dad no not with that but not not for that reason. He wasn't a good person overall but for that that kind of stuff. I think that was okay. I think at least my experience I actually can't really talk about what the siblings I think. It's funny is growing up at the family. You seven in all seven of us have living in the same place but having very different experiences
Football: Should We Cancel It?
"It's September and for the US that means back to school shopping pumpkin spice Latte as complaining about Pumpkin Spice Latte as and of course football playing patty cake or on the field at Dartmouth McCauley's in New Hampshire where tame is gearing up for the start of the season so great that's Isaiah is. Am Swan He's twenty with this big warm smile and had pasta shoulders and he has loved football the basically his whole life. I pretty sure my first memory is of football. I remember sitting on the ground in my living room watching TV and my dad's on the couch to the right of me. That's that's literally my first memory it just ever since says in every Sunday I've watched every football game and you just you just grow to love it. Isaiah loves everything about this game the tackling tactics tactics and he wants to make football his career and Isaiah is good his coach reckons. He's got a real chance of playing for the NFL. I talked to our producer produce out rise. Remler about it. I WANNA be on TV. I want to be in the NFL. I love to do so. It makes you smile really brought yes it does. I'm just thinking about if all of that happens. Vince how great my life would be there are thousands of college kids like Isaiah playing that off in the fields hoping that one day they might claim the NFL but from what we've been hearing in the news that dream might end up ruining their life does tremendous damage wjr done to your brain while playing the game football of course is a violent sport and there's mounting evidence. It's putting players at risk of brain damage. We've heard that a debilitating brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or Cte is destroying the lives of players it manifest fest in multiple ways dementia aggression difficulty thinking even suicidal thought there is no cure and all of this has some people saying that we need to end it football as we know it people like Malcolm glad well. We told a room full of students that they should protest football at this school. I think all of you us to consider boycotting football games at Penn.. I think you have to convince your friends to boycott football games at Penn and I think you have to pick it outside football games at Penn mm-hmm Back Dartmouth Isaiah remembers the first time he heard about this disease. It was around seven years ago. Linebacker Junior. CEO who played played for the San Diego charges was a football hero a father of four but then he shot himself in the chest and was later diagnosed with CTA. A is am said hearing about this. It really rattled him. That was the first one that I remember just that connection like I could be Mike. CT could drive me to do that to myself is like it's like. WHOA my mom. She knows that the danger is there because does she says she prays before every game to praise for every game that I don't get hurt up on today's show of the stories we've been told about. CTE Right. How dangerous is this brain disease really and what's the chance that a kid like Isaiah. We'll get it when it comes to football. There's a lot of its but then there's
Bill Dudley: The Fed shouldn’t enable Donald Trump
"Former New York fed president bill Dudley got a chance to set the record straight today on the Bloomberg opinion column he authored contending the fed shouldn't enable Donald Trump he said in that column that the central bank should refuse to play along with an economic disaster in the making Republicans said they were outraged definitely would suggest the fed should play politics today he spoke to our Tom Kean and Jonathan Ferrell on Bloomberg surveillance we do have to reflect on off at the road around about a month ago I don't think on the quote with you since clarified and I want you to clarify once again it was the conclusion of the original that I think a lot of people's backs up and it said the following if the goal of mine a few policies to achieve the best long term economic outcome than fed officials should consider how the decisions will affect the political outcome it's twenty twenty when I got published how much push back did you get your full McCauley look I think there was a misunderstanding about what I was really trying to say what were you trying to say well the basic that main point the piece was to try to point out the fact that the president trump was trying this or have it both ways on trade he's pursuing a trade policy with China that pose risks for the economy at the same time as saying if the economy performs badly it's it's. the fed slow and my view is that the fed needs to make it very clear that the major risk to the economy is trade policy because creating uncertainty about investment and trade and supply lines and things of that sort and the fed needs to make it clear that that much your policy can only do so much about that I think the fed has made it more clear over the last few weeks I think if you look at chairman Powell's press conference he talked about trade and certainly a lot he talked about how the trade in certain is not some of the fed can easily address and that's the kind of push back that I thought was desirable I think a lot of people would be sympathetic with that view and that was the part of the pet that I think a lot of people were sympathetic with what they want with the mention of twenty twenty what is twenty twelve like I was I was trying to be provocative and what do they what they said the person to be very precise about it one could make if you accept the notion that the feds lofty goals are temps of maxim sustainable price and price stability over long term and one also accept the premise that this trade war might not be good for the the economic outlook then logic would say there's a question about should the fed take this should the fed take this into consideration at the end of the day I made very clear in the second piece that I wrote I don't think the fed should actually take this into consideration in setting policy if the fed were to do that they would become politicized and people would basically react by reducing the independence taking away the independence of the fed so you think the fed's already become politicized well it has become politicized because of the presence of tax on the fence so there's an academic piece that was good came out of the last I don't know twenty four of seventy two hours I saw it I just this morning and and they basically did a study of the effect of the present the fact the fact of the president's treats tweets on on the federal funds market and what they found was that the tweets actually were causing people to reduce their expectations about the federal funds rate so the fence already politicized in the sense that people are not sure now yeah if the fed is easing because that's the appropriate policy path or because of pressure from the trip president but that politicization. it's not coming from the fed is coming from the president but that is a really important point but also not politicize ation that pace I came from you and anyone this conversation now she's talk about in your face we came to say a former New York fed president should not comment on the current New York fed president but by mentioning twenty twenty can you appreciate how you've compromised your former colleagues and the optics around the next decision like I think that I think they're gonna behave in a a political way is there to do what they think is appropriate for the county and if I were sitting in their shoes I would do the exactly the same thing former New York fed president bill Dudley speaking today to Bloomberg's Tom Kean and Jonathan Ferrell and joining us now is Bloomberg news federal reserve reporter Chris Khandan Chris you heard Mister Dudley's explanation has he effectively put this controversy to rest high above the well it may continue to fade a bit but I think we can fairly call that a very tortured said of explanations about what bill Dudley said in what he has since claimed that he said and wrote they don't quite really match up in I think in the end it's clear that he has not made life for his former colleagues including take Powell easier he's made it more difficult well this is this really a triggered of some tough questions not only from Republicans but from Democrats absolutely and across I must say across the financial markets a lot of economists who watch the fed closely many who who used to work at the fed were fairly aghast at the initial call on it it really just invited hammering of the fed from certain corners on on Capitol Hill some folks that are going to take advantage of that and hammer the fed it it it as Jonathan very rightly pointed out in that interview the bill's own words politicized or or. give the appearance that the fed might act in a political manner when making a monetary policy decisions in may be justified in that and that's that's really it a poisonous idea for policy makers in this new study that was just published on Monday by the national bureau of economic research shows that market participants believe that the fed is under political pressure and will succumb to political pressure by the president so they think it's there that that's a very interesting study and quite frankly that surprised me I'd like to I I need to read more deeply into that but it does they claim to show a combined ten basis points off the expected fed funds futures contracts that's really I'd like to know how persistent that effect may be and we are the on the N. economics and fifteenth we do our own surveys of for instance economists these are not that's not the same body of people that are studied in that paper so they're not market participants but they are economists PhD Scott that following the fed and we asked them in several of our recent surveys over past months whether they think trump's criticisms would have any effect on monetary policy decision making and overwhelming the

"mccauley" Discussed on KQED Radio
"This is fresh air and if you're just joining us my guest is novelist stephen mccauley who's probably best known for his novel the object of my affection which was adapted into film that jennifer aniston start in his new novel my ex life is about a couple who had been married thirty years ago until he the husband david came out as gay now for several reasons they've come back together with this time as good friends and his allies and what's brought them together is that he's a college adviser and he's been asked to help the daughter mandy with her college application and her college essay application so the daughter in the novel mandy is one of the girls who thinks that she's not really attractive of she's not popular she has a lot of doubts about herself and one of the character speculates like this is the kind of girl who gets herself into trouble and this is the kind of girl who a boy or a man can exploit and that turns out to be true what can you tell us that you feel comfortable giving away about how she is taken advantage of mandy as you describe her as someone who feels that as many of us do i think that somewhere within us we have this undiscovered talent and the quality that makes us unique and makes a standout but she doesn't know what it is and so when a man who is in his late twenties comes along and tells her that you know he sees something in her that other people don't she's very susceptible to that and she gets involved in something that has the potential to be dangerous and have dire consequences for her involving the internet i mean you know that right there that probably tells us much as you need to know and so she becomes very vulnerable to his attention so have you had experiences with students or young women who are your friends are the daughters of your friends who've who've done that and have or have nearly gotten themselves into trouble or into a dangerous situation or you know been exploited in away that was really damaging to them you know one of the things that is attractive about it to mandy is that allows her to be a different person when she is chatting online with anonymous man allows her to enter into a different kind of character to be confident to be sure of her body and so on and i many years ago i had a student who was an incredibly bright talented young woman and i had her over to my house for dinner with a few other students who i was working on honors projects with and she began talking about the job that she'd have had the previous summer which was working on a phone sex line which tells her long ago it was and and it was all very funny and she felt that it somehow was created creative endeavor and it allowed her to take on this other persona and so on and for while it seemed to be that way and then i don't know maybe a year or so later i heard from one of her other friends that doing this at had dire consequences for her because she had kind of crossed the line between you know being an anonymous person and meeting one of these guys that she was talking about and that risk is in the novel for mandy and i think i think it's kind of a risk in general with social media where the lines between what is considered even by mothers with their daughters empowering and body positive to post pictures of oneself in a bathing suit or some kind of skimpy attire and you know without thinking about the consequences that might have when you put it out and is available essentially to millions of people and when it becomes dangerous when it becomes inappropriate and pornographic you know some of the men who chat with mandy on the internet they want to talk about their illnesses with diabetes being at the top of the list where does that from have you heard that that happens you know i've heard.

"Pseudonym. I think because well, first of all, the publisher wanted something that that could be male or female and wait. Why was that important? I don't know because very quickly they changed it to. Okay. Rain Mitchell is is a woman. And you know, I had to ride all these blog posts as rain Mitchell about her experiences in her life, and and she kind of had like the ideal family life in the supportive mother who encouraged her to ride into now, basically everything that I didn't have. You know, I gave to this this character essentially that I was creating and I've always been a huge fan of Joni Mitchell. So Mitchell comes from that. And the rain is just sort of like new agey I suppose, sounding or something. Did you deceitful acting as if you were real person online. No, because I don't think there was, you know, a very huge audience listening to it, so I didn't. I just kind of went with it. You know that that I really believed in this person who was writing these books and and when I sat down to write them, you know, I really believed in the characters and and I think that helped it. They sold the foreign rights to those books in fourteen countries and I don't know if they sold in any of them. But you know, I've got all these additions in Korean and Japanese and polish, and so that's kind of fun covers like. They vary greatly from, you know, like someone doing yoga in high heels on a yoga. Because the idea behind the books was sex and city at the same sex in the city at a yoga studio, five women and a yoga studio. So I want to end with some music. I'm always interested in the music that your characters like and your novels I remember talking about taking with you about Lee Wiley, the jazz singer from the thirties through, I guess, the fifties who one of your main characters from an earlier book really loved and in your new novel, my ex life. When the main character's loves French singers, including Francois's hardy, I thought we'd end with something from her. My introduction to her was in the film moon rise kingdom, the Wes Anderson film because the the two kids who are the main characters from that movie run away together. And there's a scene on the beach where they have a portable record player and they're playing the Francois's hearty sung the Tom damore. And as they play it, they dance and then kiss. And they've never really kissed before. So. It's a really, it's a lovely scene. What's your favorite France was hardy track that you'd like to end with? I think my favorite is called lemme ta, which is means friendship. And it has some of those same qualities of kind of being wistful and melancholy. But at the same time, joyful and because it's about friendship, you know, that's really what my novel is about. So maybe that's appropriate. Good. That's end with that.

I guess the Stephen McCauley in his new novel is called my ex life. Another issue in your novel has to do with renting rooms. Julie wants to buy out her husband's half of mortgage on their big rambling falling apart, nineteenth century home that was allegedly built by sea-captain and she wants to rent out rooms and the book jacket, the author bio on the book jacket of your novel. My ex life says, you have several properties listed on Airbnb in New York and message uses. So what's your situation. My situation is changing because regulations around short term rentals are changing in Massachusetts, for example, in certain cities in Massachusetts. But you know, I was very lucky of a few of my novels were turned into movies. And in a couple of instances, when I got an unexpected influx of cash, I bought a piece of property thinking that I was going to use this as a place to go. Right? And because it seems as soon as I consider someplace, you know, my. Domain on some level. I, I'm incapable of writing there. The writing retreat aspect of it just faded into oblivion, and I began renting out properties on short term and I'm just, I'm fascinated by. I feel as if we're living in a time when people are obsessed with privacy, because there's so much that people put online at the same time. They're obsessed with privacy, and I, I was driving with a friend around Boston. This is true across the country, but around Boston. I've noticed that in the last few years people rarely use their directionals when they're driving. It makes me crazy. And I was with a friend who wasn't using his directionals and I said, why aren't you using your directionals? And he said, you know what? It's nobody's business, which direction turning, and and and so there's that attitude. And at the same time, people are renting out rooms in their houses to complete strangers and sharing the most intimate spaces with them, their kitchens and their bathrooms. And you know, they put them in their bedrooms and they go and sleep on the sofa in the living room. And I just find this. Dichotomy just incredibly interesting. And from a writer's point of view, of course it gives you the opportunity to be bringing new people into the scene constantly with new problems and new pleasures. Brown's, I've got the reverse of that is true. That is true to the people who rent putting themselves, especially especially if they are renting on like a room and a family's home while families there, you're putting yourself on the hands of these people, you don't know. Yeah. No, I mean, and that's the way I travel actually, because what's so crazy is that I bought this real estate to use it as a place to go right then I can't right there so have to rent it out. And then I go rent places elsewhere to to, you know, to write and you never know. Although, I mean, I have to say honestly, both as a renter and as a landlord I've, I've had very few really. Negative experiences. Why can't you write in a place that you're familiar with, like your home or one of your properties? I know I I, I wish I knew Terry. I, you'll have to talk to shrink about that, but I don't think he knows either because he hasn't been helped me, but I. I don't know. I think I have a very nice study in the place where I live and it's very quiet and it's got a great desk and it's perfectly setup to write, and I cannot write a sentence there. I think I just associate the place where I live with other things like obsessive house cleaning and. But just, you know, I like having a separation between where I work and where I kind of relaxed, I suppose. So Julie who has the big old home that she is renting rooms from one of the renters will two of the renter's really there a couple who actually, it turns out, give advice. Do people who rent out places. And of course they charge a lot of money for, but they want to have her hire them and they've coined the term mythology as in a mess and how to undo a mess. So they're experts in mythology. So what are some of the good advice and some of the, in your opinion bed advice that this couple gives. Will at one point novel, Julie hires a woman who comes in to and her job is to help people who run Airbnb as maximize their profits. And you know, she demands that everything be declawed with one exception, which is that she's kind of obsessed with toss pillows and she wants more toss pillows everywhere in the house. And one of the weird things that I've noticed about renting having rented, a lot of Airbnb is, is that e and I tend to rent very small places because I prefer that they're often. Stuffed with toss pillows. I have no idea why I've taken to take photographing them and Senator from enough to various friends who think that I'm making this up. But you know you, there's literally nowhere to put the toss bellows. You can't use a sofa or bed if they're covered with pillows. And so I guess in my mind, I thought, you know, there must be some Airbnb advisor who's telling all these people that this is what they need to do for some reason. Well, you have a theory in the book about why so many rentals have so so many throw pillows and that's because it discourages inappropriate sex. Yeah, yes, that and you know, like potpourri in the bedrooms and other things that are kind of turn offs to erotic activity also, because you know, toss pillows, make the furniture look welcoming. But in fact, functionally useless. Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us. My guest is novelist, Stephen McCauley. His new novel is called my ex life will be right back. This is fresh air. Support for NPR and the following message come from Exxon Mobil. The company researching algae bio fuels with the hope that someday they could power how we move people and things more about algae bio fuels at energy factor dot com. Exxon Mobil, energy lives here. First time we talked in nineteen Ninety-six. We talked about how one of your characters you main character always felt like he was either too young. Or and then he felt like he was too old and he never felt like he was the right age. And you talked about how when you started teaching, you felt like you were too young to be on authority figure. And then at some point you felt like you were too old in the sense that you head kind of bypassed the common reference points that you used to have with your students. Where are you now. I met the, I don't care, you know, which is kind of a great phase to be in. I mean, I feel as if I, I actually feel Tara hit to be so positive, but I feel as if I do have something to say to students, and I think in the same way that you know, I stopped trying to be Tolstoy or fullback. Whoever that as a teacher, I just feel like, okay, I have something to offer, and I'm going to offer it in a very authentic and way way that is true to me and I don't worry about that kind of attitude quite so much. So you came out in the nineteen seventies when you were in your late teens. And there's so many issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity that have changed over the years in terms of how their expressed and how people identify themselves and you're seeing that not just as like a person in the world bird also a professor at a university and having been at universities for years. You've seen like generations of students come and go and define themselves in different ways. There's a character in your new book who's a college student who goes by the name d. the letter D. And wants to re- refer to as the gender, neutral, they instead of here, she that's relatively new phenomenon. And you know the the, the idea of like gender, neutral names and gender-neutral identity, and I'm wondering how your processing that. That's a really good question. It's a really big question right now in academe. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I guess. You know, for me as a teacher, I am really happy to call my students, whatever pronouns they want to be called by had a student recently who's who wanted to be called it. And I said, okay, I'll try it, you know, and you know, whatever makes people feel accepted and seen the way they want to be seen is fine with me. At the same time, I find it a little bit confusing. Sometimes when people talk about the binary, the gender binary because it seems to me my experience of coming out in the seventies was that the joy really of coming out as gay was that you didn't have to think in terms of strict male and female roles that you could define yourself as a man in any way you wanted to. And I never had any interest. That were particularly a traditional in terms of masculinity. And when I began reading, particularly feminist writers like. Betty for Dan and remain Greer. I, it was very liberating. It was like what you can define yourself as a man and still be a man, but have the interests that you want in. You know, nineteen twenties, music instead of rock and roll or whatever it happens to be. And I guess my the students that I'm seeing now take a different approach to that where they are embracing it more as being gender, neutral. And so I'm, I'm trying to understand it more and be sympathetic to it. It's an addition to your novels written under your name. Stephen McCauley. You've written a couple of yoga novels under the name, rain Mitchell. If I've seen them refer to as yoga novels, I'm not sure what he is. It is the main character, a yoga instructor. That's it. That's that's. That's what makes it a yoga novel. They are. There are two novels and that rain Mitchell wrote, and they're set at a yoga studio in the silver lakes neighborhood of Los Angeles and the most of the main characters. In fact, all of the main characters either teach over there or practice yoga there, and it was a project that was brought to me by an editor who wanted to publish these books and she knew that I did and do a lot of yoga as as she did, and, and so it seemed like a good fit and the novels came. There was something incredibly liberating to me about writing under a pseudonym in certain ways. It was the most fun running experience I've ever had. Why isn't more liberating. There's a complete lack of self consciousness about anyone, reading it in judging it, even though I knew that you know, some people would know that I had written it and I don't know. I think I just kind of tapped into a different persona somehow when I was using that pen name, what was it also one of that. Well, one of the things that I always struggle with is that I kind of resist writing big events in my novels. You know, deaths and big actions. I like to keep things on very kind of small everyday scale. And in those yoga books, you know, I've got people jumping out of windows. People who were like, you know, dating a stand in for Derek jeeter auditioning for beyond, say video, and I just kind of went into this, you know, without any hesitation and it was it was it was really fun to do. I finished that project. I tried to bring some of that spirit into my own work, and I'm not I, I didn't go that extreme with this novel, but I think for instance, it helped me have the confidence to imagine myself into the mind of a, you know, seventeen year old girl who was about to graduate high school. Why did you choose the name, rain, Mitchell as your pseudonym.

"This is fresh air and if you're just joining us my guest novelist stephen mccauley who's probably best known for his novel the object of my affection which was adapted into a film that jennifer aniston start in his new novel my ex life is about a couple who had been married thirty years ago until he the husband david came out as gay now for several reasons they've come back together but this time as good friends and his allies and what's brought them together is that he is a college adviser and he's been asked to help the daughter mandy with her college application and her college sas applications so the daughter in the novel mandy is one of the girls who thinks that she's not really attractive of she's not popular she has a lot of doubts about herself and one of the character speculates like this is the kind of girl who gets herself into trouble and this is the kind of girl who a boy or a man can exploit and that turns out to be true what can you tell us that you feel comfortable giving away about how she is taken advantage of mandy as you describe her as someone who feels that as many of us do i think that somewhere within us we have this undiscovered talent and equality that makes us unique and makes a standout but she doesn't know what it is and so when a man who is in his late twenties comes along and tells her that you know he sees something in her that other people don't she's very susceptible to that and she gets involved in something that has the potential to be dangerous and have dire consequences for her involving the internet i mean you know that right there that probably tells his much as you need to know and so she becomes very vulnerable to his attention so have you had experiences with students or young women who are your friends of the daughters of your friends who've who've done that and have or have nearly gotten themselves into trouble or into a dangerous situation or you know been exploited in a way that was really damaging to them you know one of the things that is attractive about it to mandy is that allows her to be a different person when she is chatting online with anonymous man it allows her to enter into a different kind of character to be confident to be sure of her body and so on and i many years ago i had a student who was an incredibly bright talented young woman and i had her over to my house for dinner with a few other students who i was working on honors projects with and she began talking about the job that you'd have had the previous summer which was working on a phone sex line which tells her long ago it was and and it was all very funny and she felt that it somehow was created creative endeavor and it allowed her to take on this other persona and so on and for while it seemed to be that way and then i don't know maybe a year or so later i heard from one of her other friends that doing this at had dire consequences for her because she kind of crossed the line between you know being an anonymous person and meeting one of these guys that she was talking about and that risk is in the novel for mandy and i think i think it's kind of a risk in general with social media where the lines between what is considered even by mothers with their daughters empowering and body positive to post pictures of oneself in a bathing suit or some kind of skimpy attire and you know without thinking about the consequences that might have when you put it out and is available essentially to millions of people and when it becomes dangerous when it becomes inappropriate and pornographic some of the men who chat with mandy on the internet they wanna talk about their illnesses with diabetes being at the top of the list where did that come from have you heard that that happens you know i've heard.

Dog is out now on saddle creek and available to stream on apple music. Listen now from WHYY in Philadelphia. This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies infra Terry gross today. Terry's interview with writer, Stephen McCauley, his new novel, my ex life is a comedy about a couple David and Julie whose marriage ended after David came out. Now, thirty years later, they reunite as friends, redefined their relationship and try to adapt it for, you know, needs later in life that are maybe less restless less hormonal as saying, list sexual, less sexual. David's profession is counseling. Students who are applying to colleges. He thought of his true mission as helping his teenage clients gain a realistic understanding of who they were and what they could achieve in life. Once they stepped away from their parents self-aggrandizing fantasies of them and critic Jon powers reviews to new novels about single women experiencing alienating. This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies. Infra Terry gross. She has the day off, but we're going to hear an interview. She just recorded with Stephen McCauley the author of a new novel, Terry really enjoyed called my ex life our book critic. Maureen Corrigan also loved the book and described it as a smart comedy of manners about MacAulay signature subject, namely the disconnect between erotic desire and intimacy, and the screwball paths that people take on the way to finally arriving home. She added MacAulay draws his readers into reflecting on some of the big questions, sexuality mortality failure with the lure of laughter because he's the author of six previous novels, including the object of my affection, which was adapted into a film, comedy, starring Jennifer Aniston, and Paul Rudd his new novel centers around two people, David and Julie whose brief marriage ended. When he came out thirty years later, they're brought together when Juliet her second husband, our voice. Pursing and they're seemingly unambitious. Daughter isn't moving forward with her college applications, David's businesses, counseling students on how to get into college. So Julie calls him for help when they meet. Again, they find they still have a deep connection, but one with sexual intimacy, out of the picture, there's lots of comedy and perceptive writing about gay and straight relationships, friendships and marriages college application essays, Airbnb, Julie, rents out rooms and the kind of trouble an insecure teenage girl can get into through mail flattery and her own desire to be daring. Here's Terry, Stephen McCauley, welcome back to fresh air. I love a novel and I want to start with a reading from the very beginning of would you read the beginning of my ex life, our love to. No, it was not the happiest moment of David hedges life. Soren, his partner five years had left him. He'd gotten fat and some were in the midst of that he'd woken up one day and realized he was no longer in his twenties or his forties. The last person he expected to hear from was Julie Fisk. He enjoy had a history, albeit an ancient and complicated one. They hadn't seen each other. Almost thirty years hadn't spoken in more than twenty and David assumed that their story like a few other things in his life, his desire to visit Petra his vow to study the piano, his sexual relevance and ended. This didn't diminish her importance to him. His memories of her lingered faded by the years and flattering ways in his mind. They were still best friends. He heard of Julie Fisk infrequently through a few mutual friends and occasional late night computer perusal when he was feeling maudlin. Oh, Julie. He'd piece together scraps and had come to the conclusion that she had a happy life, a husband or second a teenage daughter, a large house on the ocean, north of Boston. She taught art at a private school for kids with learning problems, not what she'd imagined for herself in her younger incarnation, but who was heater judge. It appeared things had finally gone well for her. He was delighted. There had been years when he worried that she'd been set on a path of bad choices and bad locked by the mistake over brief misguided first marriage to him. Stephen McCauley reading from the opening of new novel, my ex life, of course, Julie's life is nothing like what David imagines her marriage is ending her home by the ocean is falling apart. She wants to buy out her husband's half and can't afford to. It's like everything is amiss in her life. So when they come back together again, because he's going to help her daughter with her college application, they, they redevelop the closeness they had when they were married, but without the pretense of a sexual relationship. What made you think about an ex marriage becoming a different sort of partnership? One of deep friendship that is in some ways, even more comfortable and enduring. Then the romantic sexual loves that they've had in their lives. You know, I think there were several things that made me think about that. I mean, one is just that it seems to me all relationships evolve as time goes on even for people who stay together as a couple. And even if the relationship remains sexual, essentially that as you get older needs, change needs for intimacy, change and companionship change. And I wanted to have these people begin to reexamine what really worked in their relationship, the friendship closeness and try to adapt it for, you know, needs later in life that are maybe less restless less hormonal as saying. Title list sexual.
