"That amazing fabulous I mean another one that brings back so many memories. But there's a little bit of twist to this one and I'd love to get your take on this because not only was it a huge hit for John Mac Montgomery, the awards, everything else. This song was also a number one by another group. That picked up your version of it, did a cover up all for one. Version did you have much and this is a curious question for me and for songwriters out there I guess they took what you wrote and then they changed a little bit of it. How does that work from you owning the songs and everything? And then did they call you and say, hey, we want to record this. Maybe we'll tell us how that works. Well, first of all, they licensed the song and it's still our song, whoever wants to do it. So John Michael was on Atlantic Records and Atlantic Records called head honcho down here, Rick Blackburn at the time, and asked him, you know, would he consider taking John Michael's version AC? And he said, no, I don't want to, I don't want to tick off country radio. And he said, well, we got a new group up here called all for one. And David Foster has produced in a couple sides on him, and they want to do this song. So that's how it happened. They just cut it, and David Foster produced it did an awesome job. And I didn't even always cut until it was actually coming out. Oh, wow. Yeah, the head of A&R at the time, how coolly over it Atlantic called me up and asked if baker was in town. I said he was and we went over there and he sat us down and he said, check this out and he put the CDN. I swear. Yeah. And I'll tell you my first thought just because I was just so high. I thought someone had made a parody of the song at first. Oh, no. Yeah. It was so great. And it just kept getting better. And at the end of the song, Rick blackbird walked in, he said, that's a new group. On Atlantic Records in New York, I'll offer one, and David Foster produced that on them. And yes, it's going to be a single. And yes, it's going to go number one. And yes, it's going to win a Grammy. And everything he said came true. And it was an 11 week number one on the pop chart. Yes. Truthfully, it was number one around the world. Oh yeah, it was pretty much an interesting part about that though. Think about this for just a second. That song, you know, from a country perspective amazing, John Michael did it, y'all did is great. It would have had its influence. But by that same token, taking it a so you're taking it off to temporary taking with a new higher version because there are probably some people listening to this podcast today. They remember the all for one version as opposed to the John Michael Montgomery version. Oh, absolutely. And so I just imagine the multiplying effect of that, those two groups, and it goes to what is the power of a song. The power of lyrics, the power of that moment that you can have two differently completely different genres singing it and it still touches lives in a huge way. Yeah, I mean, that's what I said earlier, the power of a song is unbelievable. And a great song doesn't care who sings at either. I mean, the difference in the song is really the production at the end of the day. Unless it's lyric specific to a certain genre, you know, lots of people can cut it. Well, that is amazing. And like I said, again, it's really cool to know, you know, listen to you talk about in your so humble talking about it, but I mean, these are, you know, these like said you said, you know, people play them a weddings. They play them at different times in their life. I've always spoke about it. When I talk about music and what songwriting is in music means to me, it's taking what's in your heart and it goes through your mind and it comes through, you know, back out into your hands and it's written for down for ages. It's almost like the songwriting to me is like the farmer who's planning who's in the 70s who's planning a new role of apple trees. He'll never probably see the apple trees bear fruit, but those somebody else will. And your songwriting is just amazingly, you know, and then it touches, you knew that and you've had the privilege of having songs, you know, like that. I think that's just an amazing kind of time. I want to a couple of your songs that really touch me, and I want to move ahead and it seems like you do all these great songs and you go, do a lot more in the middle, and then we come up again another round for me. And you started working with a band called lone star. And two of the songs that I want to talk about with long star are I'm already there and my front porch looking in. Okay. And for a minute here, just sort of, let's take the first one. I'm already there. Talk to me about that song. What was sort of the impetus behind it, because and I'm going to tell a little bit about myself a little bit about that song and really the next one as well. Okay. Well, you know, it's a true song. I knew Richie McDonald before you ever was in lone star. Matty men Texas when I was playing with Eddie Raven. I actually met all of lone star in Texas when they were in different bands. And then they came here and formed lone star, but so Gary and I were writing going to write with Richie and we showed up one of the PROs in town and Gary wasn't there. It was just Richie and I and we were sitting there talking and having coffee and it was a Monday. And we had just come off the road, both of us as lone star came off the road and Gary and I as baker and Myers. We were just shooting the breeze and then we just started throwing some titles back and forth is what we might want to write that day and nothing was hitting me, nothing was hitting him. And Richie's just went over to the piano and started the beginnings of this song and I said, Richie, what's that? Said, oh, I said, I'm going to play it for you. I thought it might be too personal. And he said, I called home and I talked to Lori and the kids. And, you know, rat got on the phone and he was about three or I guess back then. And he said, daddy, when you coming home when he said, I got off the phone and cried like a baby and started this, and I said, well, I think it's awesome, man. This is what we're going to write today. So we ended up right in the song. And for people who travel all the time and miss things with their families and the miss baseball games or whatever it is, you know, truck drivers just anybody that travels for a living could relate to this. And it became a 7 week number one song for a long start, and then the coolest thing happened, the military adopted it, and we have binders three inches thick of emails from military families about how the song touched their life. Yeah. Well, and also the song, you know, Tommy came out a little bit before it. But I know there's a lot of things written about it and as I was doing my research and looking up stuff, it also became associated with 9 11. As well. This idea of everything going on. This one is special for me. And along with the next one we're going to talk about now, that's that front porch looking in. It's sort of like two songs that say a very similar thing for those of us in life who travel a lot. And you mentioned that just meant whether you're a drug driver, whether you're on the road, your politician, your salesman, you're a songwriter, whatever. And, you know, there's times that you're on the road and you miss a baseball game. You miss something going on. And, you know, in that thought that, you know, I'm hearing you in the background and I'm alone in a hotel room somewhere, you know, but I'm already there. I want to be there. And then, is that more personal melancholy? She said. And then you got the transition to the front porch looking in, which is I'm home. I'm looking at it, and this is, you know, this is my world. You know, everybody thinks of the world is looking out, but the world was actually looking in. So amazing, you know, look there. So let's do this. Why don't you, why don't you do it back to back? Why don't you go from, I'm already there, then transition it in and to my front porch looking in and let's talk some more about it..

"Right, I mean amazing brother. Thank you. And this is why I do what I do is what I love having y'all alone is why I love doing this is because when you started playing you started singing out there, my mind went back to a hundred yards from where I'm sitting right now where my mom and I grew up and being at the same high school hearing that on the radio and my mind went back to all of those thoughts at that point. That is just so cool. Does it still get you to think like, you know, for myself or you hear people I know 'cause you play around, you play out when people talk about a song and what that means to them. You know what? That means more to me than anything is the power of the song is just really unbelievable. The power of a song, especially with some of the songs like was blessed with like I'm already there and I swear and so many people have told me, you know, that was our wedding song. That was sent that song to my dad, or about the story. The stories are just really cool and. You know, the money's good, you know, when you got to do these things, the truthfully, having the people come up to you and tell you what one of the songs that you wrote meant to them and how it affected their lives, you know, you can't buy that. No, you had some more hits with Andy Raven. You also work with that small little group. They tried Alabama, you know? Working there. But ten years later, you had probably and I would assume, maybe not from your perspective, but probably one of your most awarded hits. You want the one that a lot of people know and that is I swear, John Michael Montgomery. Before you play it, talk to us a little bit about that song. And because like I said, that's one of those I can see having played it special moments. That got kind of thing. Talk to us about that. Well, I swear I was written about 6 years before it got cut. Gary baker lives my partner at the time. Lives in Sheffield, Alabama, and has been there for many, many years. He actually moved there. He's from Niagara Falls, moved to Texas to play for a while. And I think he met Lenny Leblanc down there and anyway, Lenny lived in muscle shoals and brought him brought him there to be the bass player for Leblanc and car. So he did that and then anyway, so I'm about three hours away where I lived to where he lives, and he called me one morning and he said, Frank, I have a title, I want you to think about it on the way down. And it's called I swear, you know? It's a love song. It's like, you know, I swear I love you forever. I swear I'll always be there, that kind of thing. And that's basically all it gave me. And on that three hour drive down there I wrote the chorus to it. And later that day, in fame studios there, we wrote the rest of the song. And then we did a demo on it, or he did a demo down there and the shoals. Everybody in town passed on it. All the big names at the time. And it was about so we wrote this in about I get 85 86 somewhere in there and then we started working together. I actually got him the job plan base in Mary Osmond's band. So yeah, so the keyboard player and her conduct musical conductor, Jerry Williams, God rest is always just passed away. At the end of the year. Oh, wow. Good friend, musical genius. Anyway, we were playing them some songs and he played us some songs and some tracks that he did for other people and stuff. And we got to I swear and he really liked the song and I said, you know what? I've never really liked this demo. Why don't you see if you can do a track force and so he came up and with a track and sent it to us and I put the guitars on and Gary put the base on and sang it and I sing backgrounds and that was the demo that I played for John Michael Montgomery that got the song cut. And I actually played it three times for John Michael before he finally caught it. And I ended up being the very last song that they cut when they were recording the kicking it up record and the last song they cut and first single from the batch. Of course it was a four. Four weeks ago. How many times do you hear that?.

"Play it a little bit if I got Mexico for us? Okay. Let me grab my guitar. I think this is with Andy Raven. Number one, and it was a lot of oysters. This goes back to 84. And so for those of you in the audience, I was a senior in high school. Freshman in college, so let's put this together. So this was Eddie Raven's first number one record as an artist. Yep. I just got tired of that same old job count fighting that freeway Mark I bet you never thought I'd really go I never get as far as next a cold. But if even learn to speak the language down the beach drinking Coke and rum you would know me with the score them glow soaked sun in Mexico I meet and ride and I'm living good I'm doing everything I said I was I shouldn't have left a long time ago he's got you I got mixing oh my God, that's so good. Right, I mean amazing brother. Thank you. And this is why I do what I do is what I love having y'all alone is why I love doing this is because when you started playing you started singing out there, my mind went back to a hundred yards from where I'm sitting right now where my mom and I grew up and being at the same high school hearing that on the radio and my mind went back to all of those thoughts at that point.

"Bad. They'll give up a lot, you know, to get it. Sometimes that's necessary. Think about what you just said right there. We talk about it back in the day and you can go back to the big Elvis movies out right now and up for Oscars, but it goes back to Elvis and all these riders as they were in people coming up. CC 70s, there was that they were willing to give up everything. To have that shot. And then we had sort of a turn. 80s, 90s. You saw that turn. Artists were more, you know, people weren't giving up their songwriting critics. They were smarter. They were smarter than water. And now it looks like we've almost come full circle down in here. Yeah, and they're being leveraged into it. Now, I believe it was ignorance in the beginning. It was for me. I didn't know anything about publishing, and I turned out pretty good on it. I was with good people, you know, that weren't just mongers, you know? But the ignorance is what got most of the early people. I think when writers became publishers, the military system stuff, they got it kind of straightened out because I knew both sides of it. But now I think it's more of a take it or leave it, you know? If you want to be on our label, you're going to give up this, and of course, kids going to give up anything for that. That's their life. And I don't know if I can even explain what's in it for a young person that they've lived this probably most of their conscious life for that moment for a record deal. That's it. That's the end all. And it's good when it happens, even if you're giving up a lot, but the heartbreaking thing for me in Nashville as a writer, you get a lot of calls from the new guys in town. They want to write will you get that record. And I meet these people and I love them and they're so excited and just ambitious and it's all ahead of them and in weeks it can be overdone and usually there's not a second chance. That breaks my heart because this is the industry doesn't let them down easy. They just cut them off. They're going. And it's over. And that's been the hardest professional thing for me to deal with because these kids are so in love with this and so excited. And they'll go in and cut some spec demos and then it's over, you know, or like you said, they'll hold them for years. They'll just, you know, John Michael Montgomery, I signed with Atlantic at the same time he did all of his, you know, Tracy Lawrence and all of us got on Atlantic to make records. And I watched John Mark will go from this young trim healthy looking beautiful looking human being excited about his record deal with Atlantic. To just miserable, he was so tired. They cut over 30 sides on him over these years, and he's just, he was up there every day working, you know, trying to do something. And couldn't move forward. And I felt so bad for him. And I think in the long run, that hurt him because he was so tired by the time it all happened, and compensating with other means, you know, he was keeping himself, you know, and I don't want to get into all that. But I think that kind of hurt him. He did great. I'm not, you know, I don't think he's complaining. But I watched him just get the heck meet out of him. Bodies labels. It's not intentional. I think they're doing the right thing. But it's tough, man. At least he got his chance..

Just to put you on the spot. Um, you do not support the idea that the U. S. U. S military should very explicitly say that we will never develop fully autonomous weapons. You're correct.

"John. Michael montgomery who himself was an oklahoma's prom us Success story and who was crowing two years ago this month and the tulsa world about how this is the greatest program goi voted with. He was part of the thirty six. Republicans who all voted to impose this requirement. That if you don't finish your degree in six years you gotta repay all the money. Forget from whence you came folks in the maze. Exactly it makes me angry about pulling the latter behind you. Yeah i saw that boat to in a it did. I'm so curious than i actually saw him the other day and i should reject me. He's a friend of mine and i do i. I will reach out and ask. Because i'm i don't understand i mean he and i and former senator smalley were like the ambassadors were always at oklahoma promise date the You know senator small. I didn't agree on everything but this was something. We definitely agreed on back. He and i were at the dinner together. That i mentioned where. I met senator Warner one thing. I wanted to comment on a marian where you're talking about. In terms of determination. Senator pugh of his interviews in the media. He's talked about You know we help you We invest in you. We once you learn a skill if not he kind talked about his. Rotc program that. If he didn't finish it he would have to pay back that scholarship and what people were folks need to understand is to say that these these students students like me. Don't have the determination or the wherewithal to complete a program Like this especially once we go to college. That's just absolutely false. Because like i said there are so many academic requirements that you have to a achieve and accomplish in high school before you even get to college in order to fully receive that scholarship. And like i said in you got to stay out of trouble which is another thing. That's exactly when i was going to make it on top of that. It's that you have to have good behavior and and that is problematic. And i'm happy to talk a little bit about my passion. Their in some information. I've received walk because of my work with the girl scouts and the girls that i've served over the last. You know the five years that i was Doing that work in in how. What a missed opportunity to invest in students. who yes. Maybe they ran in. They got into a situation where than they were. They got involved in the criminal justice system but does that mean they. They'd never have a chance ever again. And when we're talking about assist reform and in and shrinking the school to prison pipeline numbers. This is the best way to do that. And when you have a scholarship like this and you are a student who truly understands that there were unless yeah like you said your programs that you were involved in if those programs don't exist in at the time it was a lot for me. So sometimes i go a lap and oklahoma's promise i kinda entertain beliefs. I knew that that was my ticket. And so anything everything i needed to do. I was going to do it. Because i understood very clearly. There was no other way out and I i even started signing up for honors classes and pre ap classes. I mean those were not things that they were death. My counselors were just like sushi. Go to these classes. I self enrolled. Because i wanted to do more and i wanted to succeed in. I know that most students who who are involved in this who qualify for the program are the same way. And i'll tell you when. I got to college. I was so fearful of The idea that all you all your grades were based on where tests. Because i was a poor test taker. I was hair. Entered ice taken out. Tell i say really now. Because i'm like i think i've achieved enough in life that it doesn't matter but the highest act score. I ever received was a twenty. I'm not dumb. I know how to do work. I know how to study. I was more of a homework day to day type student. You sat me down to take the the the act. And i freaked out. I could not concentrate. I couldn't get things done in enough time. And i didn't have access to those special like tutors and didn't have access to that financially and so once i got to college. I distinctly remember my freshman year. I locked myself on my dorm studying for my biology class. Because i I was just so afraid. I knew what was on the line. I didn't wanna lose a scholarship. So i'm taking that anxiety in that fear with me and there was no Policy that you had to pay back so put the stress the new stress and anxiety of having to pay it back already. Know the financial reality of your family to your point again and what the reality will be. It's not that we'll have a bunch of people paying money back into this trust. That will then go back and give students who who are determined enough to get it done is will not not sign up period. Okay so within six years right. They have to graduate within six years. I'm sorry my husband graduated in seven years right. And and i'm just thinking no one graduates in for years anymore so twelve years ago on a graduate degree too. Well and i'm just like what will i took yet cumulatively. I have more than years. But but i always our orange barbie twelve years for a bachelors. It's the second bachelor's. But i mean just this artificial timeline and i'm just going to throw this minor here. This is really nothing to do with this conversation. But expecting individuals whose frontal frontal lobe isn't fully formed to. I mean that is not a time to expect people to make every decision that will impact them for the rest of their life by the time. They're twenty two and so all this burden on this cohort of students. You know to you have to finish up in six years. I'm like i'm sorry. We're not asking that of our rich kids. You know what i mean. We're not asking that. Maybe their parents are showing fifty sixty thousand dollars a year but were not asking those of our other state kids. But i'm just going to point out that according to the senses the median income for oklahoma is fifty. Two thousand dollars you'll to the majority of oklahoma Like potentially could qualify for. This is that that's where we're at as state and to ask those families than to dole out the dollars to pay for in state tuition when it's like holy shit like the price of tuition since i've been out of undergraduate. My undergraduate work is stunningly. More now than it was a What did i graduate. Twenty years ago might not a graduate twenty years ago so i'm just like their again closing doors. They're just completely continually closing doors on these families. Who like this is their ticket. You know this is literally the ticket for these kids into a better life. I mean god is so much here about generational poverty generational trauma generational wealth. I mean god. I sit here and i can't say enough about how much we Underestimate the role of generational wealth for some people in generational poverty for some people In just a compounding factors of both of those. And i know senator few didn't come from a wealthy background but just the fact that they can't excuse me i'm this angry fucking remember what it was like I don't understand.

"The podcast has been amazing from that perspective. I don't know you know what. I i'm very different from most people that are in. Are you in iron and the christian podcast association together and most people. They're you know every all we all love. Jesus we all have different goals And i look at my numbers but it's more important to me that people get this message of hope from it and if it's wanner thousand cool with that that's great and i'm glad i'm glad that That people get an podcasting. I i just think it's fun. Oh it's amazing. Yeah it's worth getting up early for. Thank you so much. I can't believe you don't have coffee off camera so we're gonna play game called senseless and it's a fun game that i like to play at the end of the show. We've talked about some very serious stuff and so you know. Sometimes it's nice to have a little little levity so So this is my amazing north carolina cup so there we go all this on your behalf. Ou this is fun. I don't so full disclosure. People think i cheat at my own game. Can you believe this is my game and people accused me of like flipping the dice to dong tao like a have some power of the dice. I don't you saw me flip it over right. You saw me right. This is not a slight of hand. Like i'm not a magician but you got into exactly. That's my point but you gotta number six. The dice generally knows what we've been talking about. It's weird. It is so bizarre to me because they'll always lines up with what we've been talking about almost almost say like eighty percent of the time. But here's the number six because we have five cents juno. I hope that you know that okay. So number six are wildcard. And that's this you get to have a meal so whether it'd be dinner launch breakfast does matter. You'd have a meal with one person der alive who would it be. Where are you going to eat first. And then and then who's it is it with my goodness see us. Lewis would be who i who i would have it with and he wrote. I always get that much but yes well. I don't get them confused but a lot of people do i love. Cs lewis we're would. He eats being the englishman. But i'm not ruth. Chris is the first thing that pops in my head which is really. I haven't been to recruit statements. We don't what's the first thing that have my head. Yeah there they're A high end steak house. But but yeah man. I'd love to sit down with c. S. lewis because i have to read stuff one hundred eighty five times to understand that but i love narnia. It is about as childlike. As i get not to try to turn this thing back serious but they were go and so i love. I love the scene. And and the voyage of the dawn shredder where lucius looking for azlan and can't find him can't find him stops looking and aslam finally comes and says and she finds them and they frolic and he protect sir and and as land says. Why did you stop looking for me. And she said because the other said you're not real the other stop believing. And i just love that to me is such a battle. Cry for those of us. Who because one of the hardest things for me is if jesus is all knowing and all powerful and omnipresent and i think the three omni's omniscient but it's hard to it's hard you talking about having how you having a hard time with that galatian passage. It's hard to understand that those concepts and go so you were in that room. When i was seven years old. Cock you have this. You know. So i i would sit down with cs lewis. And i have a feeling that he would he would bring that up and say you gotta just keep believing just because the rest of the world is looking at you like you're crazy. I know that was in that room and all the rooms after that. But you got to keep believing and so my answer to that question is definitely. cs lewis. Don't have to think about that. One well in some would would challenge that some would say well that shows you once again that your god is not real. Your child is not awesome. God is not you know right president because what what loving lion like god right. He's not gonna jump in and save talents that for ten years. You know i i completely took a hiatus but like i was telling somebody yesterday it is easier for me to believe that then to believe in nothing so i don't understand that but it's easier for me to believe an intelligent designer than it is to believe in nothing especially now so i don't get it and i even challenge it like but then i remember you know what i remember. Neil what what. I hear sometimes not audibly. Obviously i'm not crazy. But is jesus saying i get it. I hung on a cross and my father turned his back on me too. Yeah there is a trying to think of this song means song stay. Apparently you're talking to the right person. I fans google this really quick. That's the name is okay. I just wanna make sure as right on the name of the song. So john michael. Montgomery you know him. Maybe i did hear that song. Little girl in the premise of that song is this little girls in her house or parents were fighting all the time and they ended up killing each other literally killing each other and so she gets taken away and the whole time. She's like hiding behind the couch. You know hiding from all the violence hiding from all the stuff. She goes to a new home and a new family and they take her to take her to church and she's staring at a picture of jesus and the teacher like comes up to her and she says something to the effect of you know i know he got down off that cross because he was there with me the night that both my parents died and that to me that lyric john michael. If you've ever heard this is again we hear but but he did get off that cross. He did get in and he was there for you. And i'm a firm believer in this. And i think scripture speaks to this so someone can challenge me on that fact check me. I'll buy coffee if you want to prove me wrong but but i believe everything happens for a reason the good the bad and truly the trauma and the ugly not necessarily for us but sometimes for someone. That's true of your story. So i just want to share that with that bit of encouragement so last last thought. And then i'll close out gotcha. Gotcha yeah now. i'm i. I believe that that he was there i believe. He's all the things that he says he is. I believe that that yeah things happen. You know romans eight. I believe it's thirty eight and oh my word. I hope i'm not wrong. I think it's eight thirty eight Where paul writes. But i wanted to understand that. The sufferings of this world are not worthy to be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us and so i believe that And shane and shane having a great song. And john piper pops in there and talks about this and and says.

"There were flags instead of crowds and thousands of troops on January 20th as Joe Biden became the 46, president of the United States. On this hallowed ground. We're just a few days ago violent sought to shake the capital's very foundation. We come together as one nation. Under God. Indivisible. Carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries. It was a peaceful transfer of power. It was also an historic day with Kamila Harris becoming the first woman and the first black South Asian American to become vice president David Harrison solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States. I will support and defend the Constitution of the united against all enemies. Oren into It's against all enemies, Foreign and domestic. The question Now are we closing the chapter on the violence of January? 6 the insurrection at the Capitol or Are we entering a new period with even more upheaval? Many reporters who cover the inauguration had that on their minds, including Chris Jones, so we're walking from billing process. Seo, Pennsylvania Avenue and forth that's usually about a 15 minute walk. So far. It's taken us 25 minutes, and we're about a third of the way there. Wait. Chris is a reporter with 100 Days in Appalachia and part of report for America. Lots of journalists and body armor and helmets being told they can't go through. It was pretty cathartic. E spoke with Chris just hours after President Biden was sworn in. Chris, you cover the insurrection on January 6 and you are back today There were huge concerns about the potential for more violence. It must have seemed pretty surreal. It definitely felt like the polar opposite city. Then it was on January 6. The more that I would most described Washington D C Today was empty. You really felt the massive military presence as soon as you started hitting the city limits close. You got to the capital, The harder and harder it was to get around. You would have to go through five or six checkpoints just to get from one end of the mall to the U. S. Capitol building. Some of the militias and extremist groups were talking about today. Like like it was an apocalypse, the fall of the Republic, the end of America and yet All that on the line. They seem to stay away from the capital. Why? I think it ultimately comes down to three main reasons. The first reason Donald Trump is gone. He's no longer in Washington, D. C and he didn't give any of these groups and he explicit or implicit guidance on what he wanted them to do on Inauguration Day. The second reason and certainly the most visible reason. Today was the massive military presence in Washington, D. C for the inauguration. The third reason is that Lot of these groups. The movement that we saw really come together on January 6. It's extremely disorganized. Some portions of these groups are are licking their wounds are trying to find some sort of sense of stability or purpose or future for their movements. And other parts of these movements saw the inauguration day is a trap that they thought that this was part of some bigger plot to to attack them. So you're based in West Virginia. You've been covering right wing groups for a few years in the run up to the inauguration. You were on the road talking to militias and protesters. What were you seeing? What were you hearing out there? One of the biggest things in the days leading up to the inauguration across the far right is a real sense of confusion, Disorganization. Ah, lot of these groups are trying to figure out what they're going to do next. In the wake of what happened on January, 6th. We've also seen in communities not just in Appalachia. But across the country. We've seen an uptick in white supremacist fliers being placed around in West Virginia. They've been found in target parking lots. We've also seen online. A lot of people discussing the idea that the threat is not gone, that these people are still under attack and that there's still a storm coming. You made it to Richmond, Virginia couple days ago, and some militia did show up. What was that, like? We came to Richmond on January 18th for lobby Day, which is the day that Second Amendment advocates protest for losing gun control. I ran into a guy was wearing a red plaid shirt with body armor over the top of it. He was carrying a gray and black gun, part of what she had actually built himself with the three d printer. He called himself Patrick Henry, which is not his real name, but one of the founding fathers from Virginia, and he really expressed a sense of disenfranchisement that's grown over the course of this year. I feel like our representatives Don't listen to us anymore, And it feels like that, whether for right or wrong when you agree with the right or not. That was a way to express that. Hey, we don't think you're not listening listening to us. So now it's okay. We have to do this. You know whether you feel another person that I spoke with has been in the militia space a lot longer than this Patrick Henry guy. When I met him, he was standing a few blocks from the Capitol wearing military style camouflage and also wearing body armor. While he himself believes that Trump actually lost the election. He also believes that there was interference both foreign and domestic, but that it wouldn't have ultimately affected the outcome. And while he was actually critical of some of the extremist groups that were involved on the attack on the Capitol in January, 6 He also had a lot to say about social media. And what he predicts will happen over the next few years with far right extremism. I do believe that a lot of that is fed by Echo chambers, You know, that's that's one of the drawbacks of social media, and every single community has its echo chamber on social media. Um, within the next two years, I'd expect that particular crowd to fizzled out. You know, let's let's be honest here, probably less than that. So Trump is now out of the White House and he's off of social media. Who's going to be their leader. So that's sort of the million dollar question right now, And that's something that a lot of people who are really focused on the far right and far right extremism are really looking to answer and same time. It's a question that the far right itself is really looking to answer. Most of the people who were there on January 6 did go home and they are still in their communities. And that's what we're really seeing a lot of activity and organizing and calls for more activism. This is definitely going to be something. That we're looking for in communities across the country, not in major cities or these flash points like here in Washington, D. C. And it's something that it's going to take sort of the country paying attention to in our own backyard all over the place, not just where the news sort of points the attention Christians is a reporter with 100 Days in Appalachia. Thanks for talking to us A nice speaking with you all. Story was produced by Michael Montgomery. Everyone breathe a sigh of relief that the inauguration was peaceful. But people who live in D C are still living with the aftermath of the insurrection. We'll have that story next. Throughout the show. We'll listen to some moments from January 20th. This is revealed. Slanders your name. This land is my money. From California..
