They didn't like the idea being recorded figure. If the unknown of technology but by the mid twenties especially when the Electricity electorates recording act was passed in the nineteen twenty five recording. Just massively took off. I say that because before nineteen twenty five most recordings with just mechanical musicians would crowd around the big acoustic horn. And if you want it relative music to be loud or that musician we just move closer to the whole you know. It's very mechanical. When illiteracy came onto the scene microphones could be used moving moving clo- mara phones and very small basic mixing consoles and an electric driven cutting life so it can change the whole recording industry.

The Great Gatsby
"In nineteen twenty five. F scott fitzgerald published the great gatsby and like pretty much every author. He copyrighted the book when it came out which you know fair enough the way copyright worked at the time fitzgerald and his heirs could collect royalties from the book for fifty six years. All the way until nineteen eighty-one and during that time if anybody wanted to make movie or play or anything at all based on gatsby they would have to get permission and probably pay a licensing fee to the fitzgerald family. And then according to the law after the fifty six years the book would go into something called the public domain fitzgerald's kids or grandkids wouldn't get royalties any more and more importantly anyone who wanted to could print up and give away copies of the book or rewrite it from toms horses. Point of view or create gatsby on ice anything at all and you know copyright. Is this balancing. Act on the one hand you want to encourage and reward people who write books create things but you also want to let those things enter the public domain at some point so we can all share them and tweak them and build on them and make more creative stuff. The artists figuring out how long to keep something in copyright there was nothing special about fifty six years. That's just a number that congress picked and then they decided to change it in nineteen seventy six just five years before the great gatsby entered the public domain. Five years before gatsby on ice congress changed copyright law. They said among other things fifty six years not quite long enough under the new stronger rules. Gatsby wouldn't go into the public domain until two thousand one and then just a few years before that congress jumped in again and made copies of old works last even longer under the new new rules. Gas would not go into the public domain until almost one hundred years after it was written until twenty twenty one but still sounds like some meat up year from the future to me. And you know congress could have kept pushing this date making the copyright longer and longer until the three thousand or something like that but there's been some pushback on the ever lengthening copyright period. Not enough pushback to start making the copyright shorter but enough to stop making them longer and so on january first of this year. Finally the great gatsby went into the public domain into our domain. It belongs to us now. It belongs to everybody. And what we now own i have to say is a complicated book. It has the romance and beauty of america. It also has the racism and misogyny and anti semitism of america and maybe the most american thing about the It's all about money. This is a book about why people want money and what they do when they get it and what money does to them. In other words. Gatsby is the perfect story for planet money and now that gets me is in the public domain. If we wanted to we could talk about it for a minute at the beginning of the show. Yeah say hello and welcome to planet money sticking ahead break in and then we could read the whole thing. We could read the entire book the entire book and posted on our podcast.

On the Great President of Africa for the public of pickering our industrial cocoa educational. At what it could go configure me arrives in an error where blacks are still being lynched regularly in the south around the same time that movies like birth of the nation are showing extra ordinarily racist depictions of African Americans as monsters. You have really charismatic dynamic individual and he's talking about look all places never going to be here in the states is never going to be in. Europe it's going to be in Africa we need to reclaim Africa. So Garvey is going to be preaching a philosophy of black pride. He's GonNa come up with a scheme to repatriate to Africa and he provides a huge sense of hope for millions of African Americans. A centerpiece of Garvey's program was the creation of the black star line a steamship. LAUNCHED TO TRANSPORT AFRICAN AMERICANS WHO WISHED TO EMIGRATE TO AFRICAN? The Black Star Line. Is this idea that Garvey can buy ships through the support of local African American people sending in money? So you can have a share in the Black Star Line. Any ships were GONNA take thousands of people back to Africa to the colony that Garvey was gonNA. Stab wish. But his advocacy for black Americans to move back to Africa drew the attention of the United States government and especially J Hoover's Federal Bureau of Investigation. Which Monitored Garvey's movement seeking grounds for his arrest and deportation. Garvey was growing too powerful Jagger Hoover is going hired their first. Negro. To Subvert Marcus Garvey and eventually they're going to say that he's been committing mail fraud with the Black Star Line Scheme. He's eventually tried arrested placed in jail nineteen, twenty five. He's deported in nineteen twenty seven and he's never allowed to return to the United States, he dies in London in Nineteen. Forty. Garvey's legacy as the father of the modern back to Africa movement cannot be underestimated. He created the largest popular political movement in the history of black America and would be an inspiration both to the anti colonial movement and black nationalist leaders throughout the remainder of the century.

His reforms upset members of the aristocracy and nobility as well as groups of progressives and radicals. In nineteen twelve, a group of military officers conspired to overthrow the king, but the plot failed. There is debate over the main causes of the nineteen thirty two revolution, but the rise of western educated commoner elites who become dissatisfied with politics in CSM played a significant role in the event. Rama the seventh ascended the throne in nineteen, twenty, five, He created the Supreme Council of state made up of senior princes who had served in previous administrations.

His parents were born in South Carolina in the eighteen nineties at the beginning of the Jim Crow era. Just after the first World War they joined the Great African American Migration North they settled in Philadelphia with the hope of making a better life for themselves and their children. As a young man during World War Two Leon volunteered to serve in the United States army. In, April, nineteen, forty, five, he, and four others from his unit arrived at the Humboldt, concentration camp in Weimar Germany just one day after it was liberated. Forty three years later on March Sixteenth Nineteen eighty-eight Leon is sitting in a studio in union new. Jersey. He's dressed in a plaid, Brown and based Sport Code. White Shirt and striped tie. He wears aviator, glasses and sports trim black moustache. Leon's interviewers are Bernard Weinstein and mark lender. Leeann recalls the racial discrimination. He experienced as a child in Philadelphia. I went to the school. WHERE THEY! Always taught us. To Care and love each other, but also have love of country. We pledge allegiance to the flag every day, just like every other young person in the city of Philadelphia do. And we said with liberty and justice for all. Just like everyone else only to go out and find as we matured. That was not so as I found out when I went to the theater. When I bought my ticket I was directed to the balcony. It was mandated that I go there. Because I wasn't good enough to go down on the main floor. It's beginning to get a little in the site to the society and how the Society viewed me. A person of color. And we. Always went to the park. And I recall how I look through that wire fence at this large swimming pool. Which I knew, I could never use I would never be admitted. because. The society was saying loud and clear to me. That I wasn't good enough. Those are the kind of things to. Make. You feel bad. I finished school in Nineteen forty, three. I went out and I I volunteered. And when I went down to the induction center. Institutional racism smacked me right in the face. because. Sergeant was there and. He told me go one. When I went through the door, and he told my wife go another way, and so I went into an all black unit safer, the officers they will white. When you enlisted, you realize the military was segregated. You. Don't even think about those things until it hits you in the face. And of course, the thing that made it more real more painful was the fact that they send US south. They send us right into the heart of the place where people would. would. Be a confrontation. We went to camp. Wheeler Georgia for Infantry Basic Training And we spent quite a time in Mississippi right in camp McCain. We spent almost a year there. and. We went on maneuvers into Texas Louisiana. And we came back to little. Rock Arkansas. Now all these places I was given the message. of WHO and what I was as far as the society was concerned. And it was really frustrating to think that you have made a commitment to your country and yet your country is saying to you. All Right? You're okay, but only so far. I went into Macon Georgia. Attempted to get a drink of water while I was in their simple thing like a drink of water. Because, you walk around the town Ucla Fountain drink i. went to drink at. Someone grabbed me and say boy. You don't drink here. Pointed to the sign, which said White. And directed me to. Another sign was said colored. Where was another fountain and you of course in uniform at the time happened? Soldier like all the other lack soldiers we will all experiencing. This was ear perception, though that the black troops generally though. fully understood the fact that. While the rhetoric of the war against Nazi racism, and so forth will was fine. In practice, the country was doing something entirely different. It was as though you were just a fringed. Country had was to personalities Channel One way. We may make wonderful announcements. You know we we've talked about engineer. Christian ethics and We're going to make the world a better place for democracy and all that other jazz, but then when you cut down to a real thing and you start seeing the way they operate. Things we're not. And so I? Began to be an angry, frustrated, young black soldier. After my experiences. I really did not want to be. On A. Specially after. Having to stand on a bus. When there were no seats at the back, having to stand up for hundred miles and looking at empty seats. Didn't endear me. To to my country. Couldn't eat in a restaurant. Had to go around the back. Knock on the door to get food. And I'm in a uniform I. And I. Prisoners of war from Germany. Being allowed to go in a restaurant and sit down to eat, and I was not entitled to for the same opportunity.
"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot. A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose.

In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history.

Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities. He described in a log I how his daughter! Daughter was taken by Jaka Luna One day one day she was swimming, so it's she was pulled under and vanished. Nobody was ever recovered grief-stricken.

"Welcome back to another five minutes in Church history for this episode. I am sitting here with a book in my hand. It is J. Gresham Megan's the origin of Paul's religion. It was first published in nineteen twenty one and that was when it was copyrighted. And this edition. Looks like it's from nineteen twenty five and autographed. It says with warm regards. Day Gresham Megyn October. Six Nine thousand nine hundred twenty seven. He gave it to George Fisher and George Fisher. Meticulously underlined and put in margin notes throughout this whole book. Sometimes you find books with notes and they stop after the first chapter to these notes. Go all the way through. Well that's the particular book but let's talk about this book Paul's religion. This book originated in lectures. In fact. There's a page here at the beginning that says the James Sprint lectures in nineteen eleven Mr James Sprint of Wilmington North Carolina gave to the Trustees of union theological seminary in Virginia. The some of thirty thousand dollars since increased by his generosity to fifty thousand dollars and it goes on to say that the purpose of that money was to set up a lectureship and in nineteen twenty two twenty one the lectures the sprint lectures were given by the Reverend. Dr John Grissom the year before the lectures were given by G Campbell. Morgan from London. The Great London pastor and the year after making the lectures were given by none other than the honorable William Jennings Bryan the nineteen twenty one thousand nine hundred ninety two lectures just three years before Brian would get into that courtroom in Dayton Tennessee. Well let's talk about mentions sprint lectures. He gave it the title the origin of Paul's religion there were actually three views floating around testament scholarship of the origin of Christianity. You see these New Testament scholars. German English turn of the nineteenth into the twentieth century. Made a distinction between the Jesus of the Gospels and the religion of Paul and they saw Jesus as one who talked about behavior ethics and made religion essentially how we live. Paul's the great systematize her and turned all of those systems of behavior into belief codes that you had to believe. And so that was the argument there was the Jesus of the Gospels the religion of Paul. And so where did? Paul's religion come from while German scholar Adolf von Harnack argued. That Paul was not a foundation not building on a foundation of the Gospels but was his own sort of mix off of the gospels. Harnack did not like Paul. He didn't like John Either. He only liked this synoptic gospels and then not even all of them and he certainly didn't like things like the Apostles Creed Harnack said Paul Deified Christ and turned him into somebody that Christ never claimed to be. There was also the German scholar of Rada and he said that Paul founded the Christian religion on certain Jewish elements from the enter testament period. But certainly not from Jesus and then there was another scholar boo set. And he said Oh wasn't founded on Judaism at all. Paul founded his religion on the Greek Pagan religions. Well Megan did not agree with that at all. An in this very scholarly book which was about three hundred pages when it was done. Amazing wanted it to be five hundred pages but the publisher said No. That's too much But in this very scholarly book Mason makes the case that the origin of Paul's religion is from Jesus himself the very end. This is what made us Paulin. Ism was not a philosophy. It was not a set of directions for escape from the misery of the world was not an account of what had always been true on the contrary it was an account of something that had happened and what had happened was the death and resurrection of Jesus. Megan says this he loved me and gave himself for me. There lies the basis of the religion of Paul. There lies the basis of all of Christianity. Well that's Mason on Paul's religion and I'm Steven. Thanks for joining us for five minutes in Church history

Fashion and War in America
"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

The United States of McDonalds
"For ME GROWING UP IN CHICAGO. McDonald's was always around. We had birthday parties at McDonald's because her apartment was on on the small size I went to McDonald's after work in high school and after school. It was the go-to meal when my mom Um and I were driving far distances and we needed something to eat and so I have probably spent most of my life inside of McDonald's so the fact that I wrote a book about McDonald's. McDonald's is actually not that surprising. This is Marsha chatwin. She's a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University and her new book. The book about McDonalds. It's called franchise the Golden Arches in Black America and speaking of the Golden Arches. There's another new book out called drive through dreams. James A Journey through the heart of America's fast-food kingdom it's by journalist. Adam Chandler the Golden Arches are thought to be according to independent survey more recognizable as a symbol. Both then the Christian crosses around the world recognizable or no. I didn't imagine we'd ever focus an entire episode on McDonald's but here we are Dr Together. Adema Marsha Taylor story about McDonald's that is about much more than McDonald's making it perfect for gastropod and we of course our guest repod the podcast. That looks at food through the Lens of science in history. I'm Cynthia Graber and I'm Nikola twilly and this episode. We're getting to the bottom of how McDonald's took over America. The story starts with WHO invented the hamburger burkart. And how did it become so ubiquitous that it gets bigger from there this episode. We're asking his McDonald's basically America's national cuisine and if it is is what can it tell us about who we are as a country less. How did the tax payer ended up funding the spread of McDonald's in the inner cities and why we're civil rights groups on board? Well whatever idea you have of of. How huge fast food is you should double or triple in your mind because the statistics are bonkers? They're completely bananas us. Eighty percent of Americans eat fast food every month. Ninety six percent of them eat fast food every year which is more than the number of Americans that participate participate on the Internet atom. Says there's not a single place in America that eighty percent of Americans go to at least monthly not a library or Jim or any house of worship according according to the Centers for Disease Control which is not happy about this stat. More than a third of American children eat food every day and for the population as the whole. It's roughly the same thirty six percent of us. Eat it every single day out of all the fast food available to us in the US. The biggest I the most popular chain the one that serves literally one percent of the world's population every day of course it's McDonald's which according to somewhat recent stats sells seventy five burgers every second and Serbs sixty eight million people per day. There is no real way to get your head around numbers that large. But what's weird is that's is makes McDonald's the biggest almost everything everything. It does so marshalled as the McDonald's is even the largest distributorship toys in the world just because of happy meals. At how do they get that big to answer that we we have to go back to the beginning. It all starts about one hundred years ago with the invention of the hamburger. Well there is a lot of debate as is debate about anything culinary in this world about who invented invented any particular item there are many authors but a lot of historians culinary or otherwise. We'll give credit to Walt Anderson. And he was a fry cook in Wichita who one day in one of those kind of Isaac Newton Aha moments got really frustrated when he was cooking a meatball on a griddle and smashed it flat right with the SPATULA and the result was a burger that cooked through really quickly and he put them in these specialty buns. And that's sort of the most recognizable version of of the Burger that we have well Anderson's meatball. Smashing moment was a breakthrough. He went onto lunch white castle. And that what is believed to be the very first fast food chain in the nineteen teens and twenties. There weren't fast food chains. Americans lived in a very different world less connected less cosmopolitan. I'm a politician. Even as late as nineteen twenty five only half of all the homes in the United States had `electricity even fewer had indoor plumbing. People weren't used to dining finding out regularly. Generally speaking there wasn't a unified culinary culture. There wasn't one item. We had ethnic enclaves that had their own specific blends of items that that were cherished and part of a tradition but in the nineteen twenties America was starting to change. The model t was becoming more affordable and the number of people who owned cars more than quadrupled. Adam told us that nineteen twenty was the first year that more Americans lived in cities the not the US was starting to become urban. The First World War was the first mechanized war and the nineteen twenties. He's was the machine. Age Technology promise to streamline and modernize every aspect of American life the nineteen twenties was also. The beginning of radio's Golden Age and more and more people started to tune into music and mystery and comedy shows. Radio started to create a national culture at the end of World War One reserved this unifying aspect to American elect. Technology was bringing about and the hamburger was part of that was part of finding a national diet. The hamburger did have one hurdle to overcome Americans. At the time. I'm was scared of ground meat. They were scared of it. Because they'd all read the jungle by Upton Sinclair and they were nervous about the quality of the food. The jungle was a really important book from the Early Nineteen Twenties. We talked about it in our episode. On the history of preservatives. It told the tale of a semi-fictional worker in a Chicago. Slaughterhouse and the nightmarish conditions there for both the workers and the resulting meat while Anderson than meat ball smashing genius behind the hamburger. He was fully aware that Americans thought ground meat was likely full of dirt and and dead rats and even workers fingers so what he did was he designed these stores that all look the same. They had stainless steel interiors white tiles and they look like castles and white castle was meant to kind of convey this stately safe grandeur of a place where you could go and it would be the same everywhere you went so it was meant to reassure consumers. Who didn't really know what was safe to eat? And that really set the tone for what would come in the future of these industries of franchising of seeing something wherever you are in saying. Oh I knew it. I'm going to get here. This is familiar to me. White Castle was the first to open in franchise fast food restaurants. But it isn't the biggest today as you all know. That title goes to McDonald's. McDonald's brothers were these two men from New Hampshire sure who had kind of seen the extremes of the great depression and they headed out to California to see where they could strike business. Gold Dick and Mac McDonald headed West in nineteen thirty. They were in their twenties and their thought was. Maybe they can make it big in the movies. That didn't find as much success as they'd hoped they were two sons of a shoe factory foreman and they found success more for in the business side of production the catering. They went from that into the restaurant business. They opened up a barbecue. Stand in nineteen forty and southern California and and it was one of the drivers of the era. That people are often familiar with car. hops in major at boots and a young guys cruising in in cars and people hanging out and just kind of a big scene and they were successful. First restaurant was called McDonald's and it was in San Bernardino which is just east of La. It's meaningful that. McDonald's started in southern California because southern California was really where a lot of changes that overtook. America were happening kind of on on steroids by the early nineteen forties. The Great Depression was finally over. San Bernardino is shifting from being farming town to more of a manufacturing and service industries industry center people were moving their into the growing city and suburbs and increasingly. They had a little disposable income but also San Bernardino was on route sixty six and so it was a place where a lot of people were traveling throughout California as well through as the rest of the country. So Dick and Mac McDonald. Were doing pretty well for themselves. But but then after eight years in the restaurant business. They surprised everyone by deciding to close their popular successful restaurant and entirely revamp it. The re diagram to what the kitchen would look like they use this assembly line model that White Castle and kind of employed and they cut the menu items from twenty five to nine. They also fired all all of the young women who are car hops because they felt like they were flirty and they would distract from the work that was happening there. They also wanted to pivot away from being a teen hangout to family friendly place. They got rid of silverware because people would steal it or break it and they went to wrapping Burgers in paper and they wanted to create the most efficient kitchen possible in order to serve as many people as possible. And so the revision of the McDonald's drive in is what we are living with today a highly automated mechanized kitchen and that is able to produce high volumes of food and a very short period of time. What they did was they basically just souped up the kitchen and turned it into a factory? An assembly line dusted with Hollywood magic. And the result was they could serve food for cheap even cheaper than their previous menu items had been. I didn't know what to make of it but it caught on very quickly. This new McDonald's factory style restaurant didn't just catch on with eaters. It became a total phenomenon. Within the restaurant industry. Eight people were coming from all over the country to kind of hear and see what was going on because there were these whispers in the industry about this place that was so popular and and you know there were long lines and people were talking about this place. That was not just serving a lot of people but serving a lot of people quickly so eventually the founders of Burger King Taco bell a couple of other chains that didn't quite make it ultimately stopped by and they copied with McDonald brothers. Were doing as Z.. Listeners know some of those copycats are still around today. One of the businessmen who came to see it was none other than Ray KROC. He was a salesman and he sold the mixing machines machines for milkshakes and the McDonald Brothers had bought a shockingly large quantity of these machines so great thought he'd go and see what they were doing with them. Ray had been in nearly every kind end of commercial kitchen available. At the time. He'd played jazz at speakeasy. During prohibition he'd sold kitchen and restaurant supplies around the country so he came to the McDonald's restaurant in San Bernardino we know and he saw the crowds and he was completely blown away by it and so immediately said this needs to be national. This needs to be everywhere. Ray convinced the brothers. Let him start working with them before long. He bought them out. And the tool that ray us to fulfil his dream of taking this model national and then global global was the franchise so franchising is this concept that a parent company provides all of the blueprints and the instructions and the recipes for a product or service and the Franchisee pays Hayes for the right to deliver that good or service to an audience. Ray KROC didn't invent this franchise model White Castle had already been using it and in fact many experts think that at the root of the idea goes back to the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages tax collectors did the work of the church and collected tithes and the kept some of the money for themselves at the start of the twentieth century. Rick Coca Cola had used the franchise model to make their sugary drink available at drugstores across America. But it was ray KROC who really took this franchise idea and ran with it. The franchise model. I think is amazing because it allows companies to pass on all of the liability to this other party so so that was sort of the way in which McDonald's grew really quickly and also took a lot of the risk out from opening places and this is the way they maintained control over franchisees so it was consistent. You didn't have rogue franchisees trying to sell Pepsi when you had a contract to sell coke and so it was a complicated system. But it's what turned McDonald's into the the biggest in the fastest growing fast food restaurant. The

ministry know that you can always make it a point to speak with me I hear on the show which one of his head over to the website commanded dot com there's a link at the top right hand corner is says be a caller just fill that form and we'll get back with you we have Molly who's joining us from Fresno California hi there Molly you can think so much for having me my pleasure so I read a story that you did something that many parents with love to do but we just don't have the nerve to do it Molly tell us about it yes about nine months ago we noticed some behaviors and our kids that we didn't love and they were a little grumpy and so we didn't know if that was screens or sugar or what the one day my son and greeted me at the door when can I play on your phone that was it for me so we pulled the plug we said we're taking a spring break and so for what we plan to be two weeks we took a break and we told the kids know screens until further notice that day okay so how old are the kids so we have five kids right now in that moment foster mommy on two four year old a six year old an eight year old and a ten year old oh my gosh and you took all the screens with video games too yeah all of it you too like I've had all of it we took it off the table and honestly I was terrified I assumed it would be impossible and they would be just going through withdrawals but what happened we couldn't believe it the next morning they didn't even ask and they found other things to deal only they go actually go outside and play yeah imagine that was a so is it really so like after I mean you know so you took it always did nobody said anything like can I have a backing for five minutes okay that was the mind blowing things they didn't really even ask me started exploring new something silly like couch forks and things blowing my child to look in the eighties to be honest with you it was amazing so we plan to do this for two weeks and then it was so good that we did it for thirty days and it was a detox that was our plan so it was fantastic so what we did was we use this time to observe what their interests and talents where and how quickly there they would improve and reading levels and he started to kind of feed those in trance and then we made a long term plan at the end of that like how do we want technology to work in our house but you know and that's really smart so before you you did the digital detox what were what were the limitations on their screen time before and then afterwards I'm sure you I mean as you gave it back to them I mean just and say okay here we go just here's twenty four seven you can do what you want how did that work out yeah good question so that was interesting thing to me is that they only had an hour a day before the detox so we were with him the limits of that what everyone recommends and then since then we've gone to an hour once a week they get to use an iPad or Netflix and sometimes they don't even use that yeah it's been crazy and so what was the biggest surprise that you signed the kids afterwards I mean aside from them just like going out and finding new interests and then I mean you guys going on hikes or walks or was there something really like like like mine you entry like okay this is a fundamental shift yeah that's a good question you know I think it was how pervasive how much it impacts of their behavior and their attitude and their minds all the time even with just an hour a day I didn't expect the result honestly it was like we have a switch all around and so now as okay so be on sure people are listing of well you know there for years old there eight years out there ten years off they're not my fourteen year old my sixteen year old how do you think that's going to work out lately so to be honest with you I have no experience parenting older kids well we didn't have actually a foster placement of a teenager active during this time and she's fourteen and she mentioned to us after a couple days she said do you guys not do TV here what's going on here but she actually liked it and so you know we would use screens in technology or things that helps build connection like a family movie night or we even did a after the detox we did like a Mario kart tournament for twenty minutes once all of us but we just wanted to put technology in its right place in our home and that's what we're able to do after we kind of stepped back and went back to the drawing board and saw how is this we want this technology to work for us rather than the kids being enslaved to it but I think you know what speed Molly you're different okay because a lot of parents are using the the technology the iPad's as like baby sitters right even for more than just an hour a day I mean we're talking like three or four hours a day I mean and so from the beginning you approach this differently and it's really quite refreshing I mean to to hear somebody who's got five kids no do you work I stay home okay which is fabulous and that's where you should be a stay at home mom I think that's you know if you can do it that's that's the best way to start nurturing and and having to you know kids that will turn into self sustaining and dolls you know but this whole digital revolution it's it's hard for for parents to say you know what I want to put a dash of your brothers guy Larry and what he did with his his daughter's Instagram account now this is fascinating so he's so she's she's fifteen okay so I they're having a slumber party a girls slumber party over at our house and the dad gets wind that she sneaking in the voice for now so he goes down there and mom and dad they just lay down longer you know what you boys around here and you might wear my daughter you come with me they give her an ultimatum they said you know what here's the deal sweetie we love you we want to protect you we can take your phone away for a month okay or we're gonna take over your social media account for two weeks which would you rather do so she being a teenager she says in his years a month and she hears two weeks right this is okay I'll take the two weeks all after the first day she was begging her parents to take the phone away because her father got on there you know dressing like a okay her father is a big Texas guy okay gets on there and wearing crop tops okay do in self fees are due in tick tock videos and dancing and like cut offs you know and but as it turns out she had eight hundred followers when her father took over her Instagram account and now she's got fifteen thousand thanks for and so that's anything so it's got you know it's kind of crazy parents are looking at different ways of man and trying to deal with this but thanks Molly for sharing and I'm really inspirational story

"Listen to their thoughts. So one of the things that we've learned in recent years in politics and other spheres of life that women are just almost all the time. Underrated. And you have written about a very underrated one underrated many ways, tell us a little bit about some of the things that she Barbara Bush. Did that people have only a demo wariness of? Thank you this before I respond your question. I'd say this is the first time I've been at the LA times book festival what a fantastic event is. And I just want to think they all times for sponsoring it. And I'd also like to thank you all for showing up because one of my visions last night was known show up, and we would be sitting here talking to one another. So thank you. Page not making that that necessary. I've covered the last ten presidential elections. Really my only job skill. Thank god. We keep holding elections and seven of those ten elections. Barbara Bush played a personal role. I think you'd be hard foot to find someone else in American history who played an intimate role in so many presidential elections in American politics. And yet when people in cover those elections, people almost invariably like Barbara Bush. They felt affectionate toward Barbara Bush. They saw her as a white haired grandmotherly figure who could be funny, and that is not true. But that is really incomplete when you think about Bush because she was also shark and Kostic, and and she could be kind of mean there was a time when I was covering her husband that to mean to me. She was in important advisor to both her husband and her son. Sometimes when they wanted her advice and sometimes when they didn't and she lived. She lived a life of real consequence yet. I think you're quite right. I think she was underestimated throughout her life. She was born in nineteen twenty five that's five years after women got the right to vote. She was understood by her mother who didn't think she would amount to much by her teachers in looking at her high school transcripts save record her IQ, which is something. I hope we've stopped doing we'll district's but her I q is one twenty which is pretty smart. And yet she was a thoroughly undistinguished student. The only eighty ever gotten high school was in physical education. She was underestimated I think by her husband who initially did not see heard vice on for instance, running for president are earlier than that on moving from the east coast to Odessa, Texas. And when he came and said to her decided, we're going to move to a Desa, Texas. She replied, I've always wanted to live in Texas, which is something no one has ever said ever. And yet. As their marriage went on as American history as opportunities and expectations for women went on her role change from being the help mate. To being a real partner for for George H W Bush, and you ask about some of the things he was consequential about. And I'm just mentioned a couple. She was took a groundbreaking role in addressing the aids HIV crisis. That was exploding in America and had been largely ignored by the Reagan administration and the actions that the Bush administration took toward that and her own actions in for instance, visiting grandma's house during the first hundred days every time his first lady and picking up. Donovan a six month old boy who had aids cinema success a country that was credibly powerful. I think we forget today. What a powerful statement that was she didn't make a speech. She didn't scold anybody. She just brought news for Tigers with her to a home for people with aids and demonstrated that you could hug them and pick them up and work beside them. And not be afraid of that. There's another thing she was consequential. That I think has been largely unknown and that was in the negotiations to end the Cold War. You may remember that Nancy Reagan had a very frosty relationship with Jeff. Publicly, basically feuding with each other. And I do not blame Nancy Reagan for this because raise Gorbachev was impossible personality. She was Dacic. She lectured, everyone on the superiority of the communist system, but the fact that she and Nancy Reagan had this. Feud was not helpful for the negotiations that were going on between their husbands, and Barbara Bush told me she looked at that. And one of the interviews. I did with her. She looked at that. And thought that was stupid that was the word he used and she thought it was stupid not because she didn't understand it. Because as I said, raise Gorbachev could be difficult. But because it was so unhelpful to her husband and to the nation and really to the world at during that perilous time so Barbara Bush wrote a letter to her brother Scott the day before she was going to meet raise Jeff for the first time as first lady, and she said, Scott, I'm going to love her no matter what she does. And she cultivated her. Years she made raise Gorbachev feel respected and welcomed I remember once I was covering one of the summits that they had and she walked out of the summit holding hands with Raziq over chip now women in Russia in Russia may hold hands. But women from Ryan New York, do not as a general rule with other women and Barbara Bush walked out holding hands. And looking like, she was totally delighted to be holding hands with Gorbachev. And I was cleaning research whether it mattered that she did this. And I found two people who said it mattered was Brian Mulroney who has done the prime minister of Canada, and the foreign leader who was closest to George Hw Bush, and he said it made a huge difference to have raised a Gorbachev who was the voice Mikhail Gorbachev, trusted, most to have her feel that the American president for Slaney were treating them with rece-. Effect that it facilitated the negotiations that were going on then and then I found in archives declassified by the west German government, a conversation between helmet Kohl who is in that chancellor of west Germany, and Mikhail Gorbachev in which they talked about Barbara Bush as a calming influence in the negotiations. And then said we did not talk about other women, which I'm pretty sure was reference to Reagan. So the book is the matriarch Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty woman of consequence important and underestimated I think not only by her family and her teachers, but in some cases, fire husband, and I think in some cases by herself. Well, you've just mentioning the end of the Cold War. There's another yet in your book. I would like to talk about which showed her acute political sophistication and this relates to the rivalry between Gorbachev and Yeltsin and how she handled that so in nineteen ninety one the bushes made a visit to Moscow this was a very difficult time because the Soviet Union still existed, but it was in the process of disintegrating and Boris Yeltsin who is the president of Russia was basically trying to create all the prophecy could for mckell Gorbachev and it was true kill. Gorbachev was on his way out and Yeltsin was rising, but it hadn't yet happened. So the bushes so they go to this reception and. All the other leaders have arrived in gone into the into the grand hall where this is being held, but not Yeltsin and this raise some suspicions on the part of the other leaders on whether he was trying to do something tricky as as he often did so Yeltsin finally arrives sweeps up to Barbara Bush says let me escort you into the hall and a red alarm went off in Barbara Bush's head that this was a trick that walking into the hall on the arm of Boris Yeltsin would send a message to everyone in that dinner and people watching around the world that Yeltsin was in in Gorbachev was out. So she turns and says to to raise Gorbachev raise let's go into gather, and she maneuvers it. So the three of them walking together. And since the message that the United States was not taking size in the friction in the dispute between Yeltsin, and Gorbachev this is a split-second decision at a moment that carried that sent an important message. And there was no one to advisor there was no one signal for God's sake. Don't walk in with Boris Yeltsin. It was her own sensitive moment in her sophistication that enabled her to handle that in the way, she did. One of the other things that I thought was very striking about the book. And it you bring it out with a there was an incident. Perhaps well-known incident at the time in nineteen ninety. Wellesley college in Massachusetts had invited Alice Walker of renowned author writer. Maybe the most famous color purple to be the graduation speaker, and she was going to do it. And then somehow she couldn't do it. So then the president of Wellesley calls up Barbara Bush and says, well, we'd really like you to come didn't say anything about Alice Walker or something, but she had her own antenna up. I I wanna have you talk about that a little bit. I would just want to say one thing. One of the things that I'm saying this also I learned a great deal from this book as you might have guessed a lifelong democrat is. I remember very distinctly, and I was a workaholic newspaper reporter and I remember one Saturday Sunday morning. I met my mother-in-law's house in San Diego. And I'm reading the morning paper. And this was the day after Barbara Bush spoken at Wellesley. And she says something that made a big impact on me. And I just want to read a passage then have Susan talk about the incident and the context of this. Of course, everything is changing for women in this period opportunities are burgeoning or so on and so forth and some women, you know, felt that she was not the best role model, but she had her own ideas, and she stood up for her own ideas. And she said something that was I just wanna read at the she says at the end.

The balcony floor is showing cracks due to the sheer weight of the crowd rather than risk catastrophe. Judge John t Raulston has relocated to a make shift platform beneath sweeping maple and Cottonwood trees around five thousand people are watching the proceedings though, no one expects any serious fireworks today. Smart money says scopes doesn't have a chance despite the prodigious efforts of his passionately pro evolution defender Clarence Darrow. The case is being prosecuted by will. William jennings. Bryan who believes in creationism as taught by the bible. Good word for good word. But now Darrow does something unexpected he calls Brian as a witness. The effect is electric the lawyers on both teams jumped to their feet and judge Raulston looks like someone just slapped him as a dozen men start yelling at once. But Brian he's not shot. He's not agitated. He's delighted to take the stain his mind versus darrow's broadcast live on the radio to millions attorney. Tom Stewart from the prosecution team has a strong sense of what's in store for the oblivious. Bryant before Brian can take the stand steward pipes up. What's the purpose of this examination? It is to show what fundamental. Is before steward can respond. Brian takes over the show. The purpose of it is to ridicule every Christian who believes in the bible. I'm simply trying to protect the word of God against the biggest atheist. I mean agnostic in the world. We have the purpose of preventing the bigots and ignoramuses from controlling education in the United States. I am perfectly willing to sit here and defend the right of the people of Tennessee to protect their children's education. Clause from the bleachers. The people you call yoke goals. I never called them that you call them, ignorant and bigoted. And you say the same thing about all the scientists, and everyone who doesn't believe in your fool religion. It goes on and on after almost two hours. The men are only inches from each other riled up dripping sweat shaking their fists shouting one another down there both consumed with their missions and utterly aware that they're showboating in the national spotlight. Either way the crowd eats it up like it's a Saturday night cage match, but something's changed. No, one is shouting a men's to Brian's words anymore. Now, people are laughing at him Darrow quest. Brian about creating eve from Adam's rib, he asks him about a wail swallowing Jona. And then it's onto the story of Noah and the great flood. You believe the story of the flood to be a literal interpretation. Yes, sir. How long ago was the flood mister Bryant two thousand three hundred forty eight years BC that has been the estimate. I never made a calculation a calculation from what I could not say from the generations of man. I would not want to say that. What do you think? I do not think about things I don't think about do you think about things you do think about sometimes you believe that all the living things that were not contained in the arc or destroyed. I think the fish may have lived. Don't you know, there are any number of civilizations? That are traced back to more than five thousand years. I am not satisfied with any evidence. I've seen you believe that every civilization on earth and every living thing except possibly the fishes were wiped out by the flood at that time. At this point Brian's trying to keep it together. Trying to hang onto some semblance of pride in his blind faith, that's increasingly sounding like sheer ignorance. You have never in all your life made any attempt to find out about the other people of the earth. How old their civilizations are how long they've existed on the earth. Have you know, sir?

Those are the only people had of him Sada I always forget about Passat Avena switch hitter or hey, yeah. Always remember him more from the left side guy. Hawk Harrelson you can put it on the. Yes, he's gone. Yes, he is. He's a legendary broadcaster. And we we've talked about this before about how the the cornerstone team broadcasters becoming a lost art and that you know, no one will ever be VIN Scully known will ever come close to like the Audi fucking years. Was he in the booth? Like seventy seventy five. He's the goat. But yeah, there's the, it's a lost art now. And I feel like a lot of these broadcasters that are coming in. They're, they're young bucks. And I think the whole point is to try and make them be the next VIN Scully which I mean, if you're going to be the next VIN Scully, you got to get in there pretty young. So maybe they become that. But right now, you know the game losing hawk Harrelson's voice. That's that's a big loss. Yeah, I remember you know, if I once I started getting MLB TV in two thousand in ten or eleven back then out switch the broadcast the White Sox broadcast sometimes just to just to go back and watch the home run calls like I would go back to wash the home run calls when when Meinie went to the White Sox, I started like that was really when, like, you know, hawk became one of my personal favorites. Yeah. Yeah. I could appreciate him until then dropped. One of the most famous lines ever. And it's beautiful because it works and it's not foul or out of play or anything. But I believe during a game against the Mariners, he wants dropped a and the sax or full of semen. Really, that is really that is I can't even be yin to describe the level of savant nece that is going on when he conjures that up, like there is. Like Maya Angelou aspires to be hawk Harrelson You know what I what mean. I mean? It was. Oh my, oh, my, you know, those things on Twitter where it's like respond to this or quote this with your least or with your lease popular blank opinion like popular baseball or or TV, or movie opinion. I will miss hawk Harrelson far more than I will miss VIN Scully. Yes. Like I say that I'll miss Hok Hera the MVP. MVP there's a difference, right? I will miss Hok Harrelson's. Baseball calls like game action calls more than VIN scully's game action calls, but I will miss VIN scully's stories in between. Sure. I get it. I just like there was a, a one of them was hanging out with bucket, Jackie Robinson. All right. I could listen to hawk call, Dwayne, Wise's, catch and Burley's perfect game every single day of my life moving forward. And it would never get old. I'm not saying he's a better announcer than Vince gully. I'm just saying me personally, just Justin, I will miss him more so tip the cap to Harrelson David Wright and victim Artigas we will miss you here on the starting nine when it comes to below the belt comfort, there's regular underwear, and there's Tommy John, the revolutionary clothing brand that's redefined comfort for men and women everywhere.
