On average no sired by a purebred bull fewer fewer pounds of dress weight according to the testimony of the butcher to audience to whom dressed weight was familiar terminology. There were objections and sidebars ars gavels. Were gaveled as were only eight. There were examinations and cross examinations opening arguments and closing arguments. All all the things required for trial under the American judicial system except a jury of peers. Because who there could truly judge that one scrabble there to stand in for all Scrub Bulls born to pedigree parents who there could truly determined that bulls worth. Even the prosecution would concede he was merely being a ball doing both things but he was afforded the jury of peers to judge whether he did them. Well who might understand what boomer is to a Bo. What is the field and the feed? The buzzing fly the breeze the flicking tail. What is a life well lived in? That notion might seem absurd. Sure but more absurd than a bull on trial in the Ballpark and September evening in Pennsylvania because because eugenics was all their age. I am less sure. This trial ended in conviction as they all did. It's one of the steps laid out in the pamphlet. It ended in a barbecue which wasn't always the case. Sometimes it was a weenie roast. One Bull Minnesota was is dragged along to trial after trial. Once in Indiana the executed bull was placed in a black coffin and buried one time in July of nineteen eighteen. Thirty one bowl was convicted in a trial in front of Eight. Hundred people. In Neil's Ville Wisconsin but before he could be killed he somehow slipped away in ran off into the trees. Ni- propose we let this one scrabble standing for all scrub bulls though so a few of them exist now well well into the two thousand. They have indeed been bred in engineered and eaten out of the population. But let's let this one go to to run off into the trees. Let him keep on running to find pasture some tall grass in a life worth living. Whatever whatever them I mean.

"Hollywood through a morning fog that estranged from this year here in hung with Ashram some force fire somewhere which is the norm for this time of year and the Harlem. The radio moment l.. Interesting side wings companionable DJ came on to tell us that there had been a shooting at a high school in Santa Clarita but thirty five miles somebody who normally would be playing music shooter now. Oh that she would keep us. Update basically promised threw tear playing anxieties for herself. And for the hot end. And for you and for your daughter there's something Very troubling about having someone have to tell anxious parents whether they should go near a place there is chaos and murder going on while between Christmas songs Well I think stunning really I mean it just it. Just it takes a certain kind of noticing and I think the noticing in the more the recent one is a lot more sophisticated interesting and sticky than the first one it will. Yeah I think that some of that might be a lifetime of noticing. I I think that that it is twelve years in parenthood And you know decade of my in our collective lives But when all comes down to it I think you know so many of the things that still that move me still move me at that always has always felt like at my best at my most sort of present at my most sort of DM Carping. I've always sort of had like a kind of like an active empathetic sense at my best. I felt sort. It's like a tuned to You know life moving around me and you know the struggles. They're in and that sort of thing and so what what you're noticing is you're noticing maybe the PRI- There's you're noticing justice deep awkwardness of the situation for everybody involved for the DJ for the people who might hear here Christmas songs in that setting for you for your daughter and for commuters and for the town and for the radio station his. There's there's a mismatch of subject and object here. That's just kinda rich. I think that makes a weird person to sort of find it and circle circle and deliver it. And you're just wonderfully weird from the beginning to the antics. I think he just getting better at being weird that way I think yeah I don't know if you I mean maybe I think I do object to my research the word we are no no no no. I'm happy happy to be weird. I think that that if I'm going for anything the story after story in it's certainly active in this story but really in kind of any of them. If there's a feeling I want someone to get I want someone to recognize after listening to to that story or during listening to that story that there live right then are themselves historical that by listening to a story about going into dreamland at Coney Island Back in the day Back before it burned down you are thinking about the differences between now and then and then you're thinking about your own experiences M- moving through the world sort of a a deep belief that long ago is sort what is like now. Yeah just you're like that. I mean it's it's from it comes from like a simple desire like it's almost like a yoga practice with me that it just does me good to remember that we're all GonNa die. It does me good. Is it also true that Cleopatra was probably a woman that if you met her today you would recognize her. Yeah and you know she would be familiar to you yet. I mean some sort of like Olien. Yeah I mean if there's another mantra I need to tell myself fits that David Letterman's a real guy. So Abraham Lincoln is to you know like that I find the coming back to this. Yeah I mean I find it I find it personally valuable. I mean that's kind of the way the stories are written you. You introduce a metaphor in the beginning. You keep coming back to small like you haven't done. You haven't done your two hour special direct for your Warren piece What's Nice about small feel? I mean there's a couple of things like in my twenties. I remember going to a show where I saw favorite band play and and the first three songs are just incredible in the hairs up on the back of your neck and your so happy to be in the room with them and you can't believe they're playing that song but eventually like you start to feel like can eat P or the person in front of you is too tall or you know. End The hairs in the back of your neck starting to go back down and on some level I really did. Fetish is smallest smallest cyclic. I wanted to tell stories that got in and out so fast that the hair and everyone down in the back of your neck. It's interesting because they said of James Thurber the humor writer for the New Yorker Writers like him who did small afraid of schism quoting afraid of losing themselves in the larger flight of two volume novel or even a one volume Liam novel these authors stick to short accounts of their misadventures because they never gets so deep into them. If they can't feel they can't get out. Oh that's interesting yeah. I wouldn't say that to me to me that that I mean some of it is is like some of his simple like Boorda like I like to. I like to do a thing thing and move on But the other thing is that I think that like wile e. It's an incredible experience to have like a journey with a long novel or or to watch the Irishman in one sitting or whatever it might be for me when I engage with a piece of art when I engage with song when engage with the Irishman a you know in one sitting sending whatever it is all I want is the feeling of of I want to be woken up. You know like life. Just move so fast. There's so much shit you have to deal with. It is just I. I want something to cut through the were in sputter of the day to remind me that you have this day right here. Like what are you going to do with the rest of the day so catch telling sure you can fit it into other people's Day exactly like there's something. There's something as simple as that that like I. It's like a pop song. The three and a half minute pop song can change your day. Can Re frame the way that you think about your relationship can activate a desire that you didn't know you had in that is such a powerful. Aw Experience and I find that adrenaline shot of that. I guess I'm wondering I e proud because you you you're the doctor who shot the journal and into the audience like yeah. I've only got six minutes but yeah how just from like a practical like doing the work thing like I love the challenge of that. I love love to to try to figure out. Oh I just watch a seventeen hour documentary but there's one fact in it that like move me so much that I want to find a way to build a story around it but what I'm really trying to do is like I felt that way. Once I earned that feeling over seventeen hours. Is there a way that I can give give this to you and seven minutes because those those things that shake us up the POPs on that comes on the right time the the fascinating thing that you see on the subway on the way home that you rush home to tell your wife about or that totally shook you out of the Weird Malays you had. Those are the moments that we remember those. The things that we learned from those are the things that allow us to connect beautiful really beautiful. Yeah the ability to do that. The kind of goofy kind of crass way of saying it is like I got a bunch of hypodermic needles. I'm just I'M GONNA line them up and if you need you need your day change you can turn on the memory palace like in some ways that the idea of like like a unit of emotion. I'll give you a short fast. fucking hi yes or we're low.

"You you know like like I I mean actually I think it was like literally the next week He's like hey hey we have a fairly sudden paced euro on it was it. It was essentially you know he says. Hey we need someone to fill in as you know as a producer you know booking phone calls cutting some tape Can you come up and and and then I did and so then I was. Ah for a year or so I was a part time Fill in radio producer slash Restaurant Valet is wait a second. So you're now actually getting good enough enough of this that you are unambiguously loving what you're doing totally and loving yourself for doing it. Yeah exactly now have no self low. What about other about the usual story so here is at some point? You then do something terribly wrong and you think valet parking is probably going to be my future and I'm lucky if I can still turn key in addition nations. That didn't happen to you now. It was it was really. I sometimes think like like if I'm ever started giving like life advice to someone that is wondering about the career I think about an image that I thought about it at the time which is essentially like what you like. I had a real problem one of those problems where I have a lot of difficulty choosing like. Oh I I'm I like. There's a lot of different things I'm interested in You know I was like A dilettante where I would be a little bit good at a a number of different things but did not have the discipline to get particularly good. Any of them did not have the obsession in radio. I found a thing that allowed me to be a dilettante. There's a set of skills that are highly specific And in one needs to lean into and really pushed toward and really develop an earn but beyond that the gig is knowing a little bit about a lot. But what I tell people and what I thought about the time is that you know what you kind kind of need. If you have trouble choosing think of it like a flashlight you want to cast a beam. You're not gonNA be able to do anything outside of the beam on either side but if you walk generally in that the direction you're going to be safe and I knew that I was walking in the right direction like I know like I knew there'd be challenges ahead in terms of like well maybe I should go off and do documentary films or I. There'd be many choices in conflicts in hurdles ahead but I knew that fundamentally I was walking direction that was correct for me and and and you kept walking. Yeah how many years from now from the now. You're doing the first gigs for this one. And that one. And it's feeling good and and feeling right and now many palaces how far away from you now four years ahead of you know. It's probably about seven or eight. I set off to kind of be an artist in the sort of audio field. And do you know this American life like or you make beautiful things essentially and I ended up essentially becoming a journalist. You know like after You know after September eleventh. You know I start working for a news program at W. B. U. R.. And then I move out here to essentially test out my long distance centralization ship with my now wife MOVE OUT HERE TO LA and start working for marketplace and learning ton. And it's a it's a great show in its in again again. It's very gratifying. To be on like a national show and feel like I've made it in that way and was. was you know tap very early and given the opportunity to be an editor and was essentially very good editor but it turns out when you're very good editor No one wants to let you do anything anything else. Because I think that that's sort of a rare creature in a newsroom. And so I wanted to. You know beyond air wanted to make my own thing and was having a hard time doing that and then eventually found my way into freelancing for NPR and found people there that that liked me doing that thing and while they're like really did find that like. Oh even though. I'm doing this you Jonas Jonas brothers story or interviewing Jon Bon Jovi or Interviewing Delilah the light. FM DJ That that these czar human stories that people usually treat these as business stories or as you know perfunctory entertainment updates but if I can treat all of these like these are are stories about people with drives in wants it you know in failures in their pass and successes. Now I can make something. You know. Lovely here you'll you'll meet somebody who's successful in entertainment business and you look at the cracks in them things that now. Just look for. I look for now mostly I look for for for what it means to be them. But you're actually still puzzling through this David. Letterman was exactly before for his part. Jon Bon Jovi says that he's made a slightly Twang up Jon. Bon Jovi record. He says you'll always be that guy from New Jersey writing about Tommy from the docks and Gina from the diner member. They might be now in two thousand eight when when you sing a song. Like living on a prayer twenty one years later it marks memories in people's lives. They come to see they think about where they were first time. They heard it or that first kisser they got married to her they played it for their kids. Now that they're old enough you see in the eyes of the public that are singing Bhakti at the top of their lungs in those stadiums. You know that you you touched somebody buddy and they in turn touched you next year. Bon Jovi will be eligible for the rock and Roll Hall of fame. He admits that he liked to get in. But he knows he's never been a critic's favourite but twenty five years into it he still selling records. He's never been a nostalgia act. He's got the biggest tour of the.

"One of the best things about going on Radio Laboratory. This summer was getting to know several the folks who work there and it turns earns out every multiple conversations with host Robert Krulwich about storytelling in life is a wonderful addition to one year and he and I thought it would be fun fun to have one more conversation on air for you and talk about the Memory Palace and how it got started we start in classic radio lab fashion with a couple. The people in the middle of some other conversation on microphones before the main conversation actually starts here about the glass of water. I spilled on my laptop last week on the positive side. It's everything is now up and running eleven hundred dollars later which was a whole thing. Yes yes and then Robert asked me about a time time in my early twenty s when I was trying to figure out what to do when a band I was in broke up it was one of the sort of smart life. Things I did was a really sort of sat down in kind of approach to existential early and really kind of thought to myself. Like what is it about this thing that I love like. What is replicable applicable here? So you're making a list of things I innately like to do moods I particularly want to be in environments I particularly want it to adopt thought. Now what is what. What kind of job does this stuff? Yeah and when I really thought about like what. What's the what would the dream for this thing be? Well well dream would be to to to be an artist with an audience. The dream would be to be able to travel and have elite varied life and and have adventures cheers. I was really like some of fishing for something that might do that. Right around the same time Rhode Island got its first official non on repeater public radio stations. But did you hear something I did at one of our show. Today is the story of somebody who tried to get closer to the real thing and tried and why in the end it did not go to this. American life story done by Kelly mcevers here in Chicago and started to get interested in stories that she was hearing about girl gang bomb. WHO's now friend of mine? Who What who was clearly clearly appear on air like she was clearly someone in my cohort? She was clearly Just you smell that you could just you could tell by the voice you could tell by the references as you know you could just tell by the spirit of thing and she was doing A story about girl gangs in Chicago. There are two things about it that struck me one was that it was beautiful. I I was moved. It was this American life firing on all cylinders. It's something I'd never heard before and been exposed to in the other thing was Kelly was having an adventure you know. Kelly was meeting interesting people. Kelly had stories to tell when she came home. Kelly was putting themselves in positions that she would never stumble into who otherwise and that was very exciting. The other thing is a two part story that I remember listening to on a rainy November number evening in a particular rainy Point in my life On all things considered about an An accidental death breath at a housing project in Chicago. Where a I believe? A an older brother was looking after his younger brother and end somehow younger brother fell out the window. And it was about these kids in their tragedy in about You know the system letting them down and the whole thing thing was so moving in so beautiful the lesson that it showed me was that audio storytelling on the radio had the power our to reach into your life and Change Your Day in the same way that like the perfect song at the perfect time. Can you know that that yeah and and it was that a musician as as a broken musician he thought well maybe I could play this other kind of music the moment like that does your inner part. Say yes I can. Of course I can or I am a hired worker. I I will figure that out I will beg and squeeze and Cajole an plea and pray and maybe someone will give me a nip like what mood were you in the blank I can was. Maybe I can question mark like I really did not understand that the people who did cool cool things you know the novelist the musicians you know the people in history. We're real people until I was about twenty one years old. I never met anyone who didn't story people like they were like. Yeah I don't know I know the David Letterman was like just like a dude on this fundamental level like. I've never met anyone that did that my who did you know when you were twenty ladies know any reporters I knew I knew no one at all and you know in my parents were very much like you can do whatever you want like. They you know like like like go out and conquer the world but at the same time you know they had a very limited experience of the world like they they they grew up on on the opposite sides of of the wrong side of the tracks in Providence My you know my dad was from the really poor poor part of Federal Hill in Providence. My mom was from the slightly less poor part of Federal Hill in Providence. They both went to Rhode Island College. Or you know which is you. Know half an hour walk from their home and graduating from there And then both taught there. They both taught at Rhode Island both taught my. They both taught special. Ed Azran Allen College like when they retired from Rhode Island college except for like a couple of a couple of years when my when my mom was a stay at home mom and my dad taught in providence public schools. Probably three or four years. they were on campus. Abbas from like nineteen sixty three until their retirement But there is something about growing up there that if you want it to climb up the hill in that town to the top were the spire buildings are you could go meet these. Like wonder Kin Brown and Rizzi kids. who were like all know everything and no everybody and shopped at blooming? Exactly places is like barneys maybe even not so that so that I mean in that is actually the kind of thing no any of them. That's what he started to change things for me like when I was sort of in my early twenties and I was actually finishing up at Rowan College after like where my parents taught so I could go for two hundred sixty dollars a semester After a very circuitous UNDERGRAD. Experience and Syrup playing in bands and like like going to shows and meeting these brown kids kids Who who Felt felt like they were going to inherit the world and I was starting to realize that they were probably right through a combination of like of playing in bands and then like opening for bands. That I sort sort of worship and then realized like Oh these people kind of stink. Like they're not all that cool or their science nerds like or that was just the period when I started to be like. Oh wait these people can are doing these things like maybe I can also do these things In so now I I listened to these stories and they thought like this feels like a thing that I ought to be able to aspire to. This isn't playing shortstop for the Red Sox. This isn't kind of things we do. You want to be like Mozart in the afternoon and yet she now I I wanted to music or I wanted to make beautiful things like I wanted to move people in the car like I wanted to change people. I wanted to change people's Day getting wannabe want to be a journalist. IRA- IRA- Glassy and manner. It wasn't the news report. It wasn't Were reporter It was the you you know. Tell me the small beautiful story and the smart thing that I did was I got a call from a guy that this skymark Naven who works at here and now Wb you are and They were looking to interview something about An art action that was happening happening in Providence. A bunch of artists taken nat in the Providence Journal to save dive bar which is an important thing in the music scene and I was nominated as its spokesperson because I was the person who cleaned up the best best. Meaning you put on a tie. Yeah so you're there's a rabble-rousing group of people who are taking over bars in providence. Somebody in Boston says maybe we should cover the story about the rabble rousing people taking over by providence and you're the spokesperson for the rabble rabble rousing people taking over Barzan. Yes they say they say who will sound best on the phone and give it to me and so when they called and they said Hey. Can we talk about the rabble-rousing I just I had the instinct to say you can but can I come up next week and talk to you about working there and whoa very kindly the guy I said. Yeah yeah sure And the scene with our talk exactly so this right and so the senior producer was was like he said Yeah. You sure. got a half an hour. If you can come up here next Thursday. I'll I'll show you around and whatever but I just at that point just came really prepared like I had stories pitch. I had learned how to use pro tools. I had my microphone. I had my kit. You know I like Bush so you weren't just going to go on a tour. You were going now milk. This is going to try to milk it. As far as as far as they could and he was surprised and impressed rest and then he said MONTHS AGO interview people at that upcoming Ballroom dancing tournament and try to put it into try to ah pulled together and And it was on Sinement Yep is on the a couple weeks later and then it was. Then it's filling jobs. And how long did it take you to learn the pro tools and by the microphone and practice in the living room so that you ready for the moment he said go over there and cover the dance the such and such like how. How many weeks that you put into it? It was it was it was it was a fair amount of days It was it was also a lot of borrowing. It was a lot of you know like I had a microphone and You know the recording equipment stuff is easy to you know from was was just lying around from from music stuff. I got a copy. Whatever the free pro tools version was and I just basically knew that I had to get myself good enough to be able to to fake it till I made it like that? If he gave good was how good what was your first fake. It was pretty good but mostly but it was also but I also took it really seriously when I got the chance like I was just knew that I needed to be able to look the guy in the eye and say I can and do this and then and then learn to do it after. And where were you when it aired exactly where you I believe believe I had woken up late The show airs at noon. I think I woke up an hour before because there was twenty four and and I was on my way to my valet. Parking job at Angelo's Italian restaurant in Federal Hill And Major. I stuck around to hear here it but did you feel like yourself. I honestly you know I really. I felt a great deal of pride because as a person in who didn't know that the people who did things that I thought were cool real people and was just learning that and honestly could not figure out. What are we GONNA do? Couldn't figure out how anyone sort of did anything interesting and so hearing a story on the radio that I kind of made made by Kind of charm my way into In then knuckled down to do and then then you know did the work enough so that like a little bit of kind of natural aptitude and kind of like talent was was able to kind of like clearly make things shine enough to to get get on get on the air Felt like a real team it. It really did. Like I felt Eliza doolittle kind of achievement. Did you feel like you had just become a gentleman. Yeah you feel like you just become an artist or did you just feel like you. Just become one big step towards something you wanted to be. I think that I felt a little bit like I had stopped. Stopped being a fuck up. I think that I think that it was essentially like like those this like like I may have just forced. Open the door for me after. Like like bump in my head against walls for a while there's something felt was very empowering about having dreamt of a thing in thought idly about a thing for about a year and then like figured out like a plan. I'm going to get my foot in the door. Got My foot in the door in a way that like you know like showed some initiative in some pluck but at the same time like I had also sort of earned I had done and something interesting in the rabble-rousing art world like I like I like by following the extra Qaeda's path like it was able to kind of like look back on you know what what otherwise could've thought felt like aimless youth and been like now know the skills that I learned in being in a band and being on the art scene and getting stuff done for myself in this other way these are professional skills and I've just kind of proved it to myself okay. How long does it take from that? First performance to you actually sort of locking in A version of yourself some would pay for It was it was pretty quick..

Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work. Made the dinner out of sight out of mind so talk of freedom could flow at Monticello which was so. Very Jefferson Deficit.

This is the memory palace amid the mail. I write this to remember that this morning. The November morning in two thousand nineteen. I was driving my daughter to school and she wanted to listen to coast one of three point five in the late. FM Station in Los Angeles Police Christmas music around the clock beginning earlier and earlier every year as we were driving in Hollywood through a morning. Fog that estranged from this kinda year in hung with ash from forest fires somewhere which is the norm for this time of year on the radio after. Let it Snow Ellen. K The super super smooth companionable. Dj came onto. Tell us that there had been a shooting at a high school in Santa Clarita but thirty five miles north that it was being treated as an active shooter situation situation that she would keep updated. She promised through tears and then said something. About what an odd thing. It was to have to tell her audience. This parents kids on their way to school. People who live in Santa Clarita or who's grandkids do or people who grandkids don't but still and people who are just out driving spark that's delivery trucks super shuttle vans bound for Burbank airport. She said what an odd thing it was to have to share this horrible news with all of us when people had turned on the station just to hear heart warming warming Christmas music and then they played. Oh Tanenbaum the version from the Charlie Brown Christmas special the saddest version and she probably didn't plan it. No one it was probably pre-programmed but there was and then there was an ad for a Honda dealership and then one for personal injury attorney and then she was back your voice breaking breaking talking of Gurneys in stretchers in first responders at a high school in the senselessness of it all in hugging your children. Extra tight tonight and talking talking briefly of her own son soon off to college of her own nest soon to be empty in record this to say something about gun control or hugging in your children though. Please go do both but to merely remember into note for the future when I when we when they in the future future think back on this time when kids shot kids at school that this one. Dj had to talk through tears. Her shaking head her thrown up hands then had to play the happy songs giveaway family. Four packs of tickets to Disneyland in California adventure to experience the most magical time of year with celebration throughout both parks now through January sixth sex and she had to keep working when the world felt like it was falling apart that she did her job so well so I record this episode merely to note for the future future that this was just what mornings felt like sometimes in two thousand nineteen just went on while the world felt like was falling apart and I release this episode with the sense that the best perhaps one can hope for. Is that people in the future. We'll think about the history that we are living through now that they will look back from future when kids don't kill each other at school in wonder how those people back then could have lived like that but for now. Don't let it snow.

Nineteen thirty nine twenty thousand people attended what was for all intents and purposes, a Nazi rally in Madison Square Garden in two thousand seventeen I did a story that took place on that night. I am releasing it here both to Mark the anniversary and to let it play out again at a time when anti semitic and white supremacist, violence and speech are on the rise. I'm also we releasing it because I think that what happens with memory palace episodes is some of you will listen to it, and then want to go and learn more, and who can blame you it's so today we are going to do that. The first time I've done this excited about it. Immediately. Following this episode the year Hank Greenberg hit fifty eight home runs going to play a new story about that rally produced by my dear friends radio diaries. Little one two punch as it were. You can subscribe to their podcast, you can find out even more about the rally and the events of eight years ago, and you can listen to literally two decades worth of some of the greatest audio stories ever produced at radio diaries dot org. This is the memory palace. I'm Nate male. The year. Hank greenberg. Hit fifty eight homers to lead the major leagues he batted three fifteen scored one hundred forty three runs drove in one hundred forty seven and had an opium of one point one to two if that means anything to you, if it doesn't just know that it's very very good. He meant something close to everything to Jewish Americans. Joe DiMaggio with talion Americans, but more. So Hank Greenberg was the Hebrew hammer despite suffering all sorts of anti semitic, prejudice and abuse. He never ran away from his identity, even when people freaked out when his Detroit Tigers lost game when he sat out for young Kapoor in every Jewish kid pouring over the box score in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, while pouring milk over the morning cereal. All the old timers shouting baseball. And Yiddish over the squealing brakes of the elevated trains and canal street new the only reason Hank Greenberg led the league in walks that same year was because no one. Would give them anything to hit. Because no one wanted to do to break, babe. Ruth's homerun record. The your hand Greenberg. Hit fifty eight homers. There was another Jewish hero known for his own astounding Affleck feats, though, his fame didn't extend much beyond the orbit. But if you grew up in a cold, water, flat and flatbush or remembered waking up to the sounds of guys selling pickles and Shmatko outside your tenement window and riverton. You knew the mighty atom. The beginning of his story wasn't all that different from your own. He was born Joseph Greenstein in Poland. He had come to America fleeing -program found work where he could which in his case turned out to be Galveston, Texas, the oilfields in. That's where his story it starts differentiate a touch from the standard tale of Jewish. European migration in the early twentieth century. His boss became obsessed with his wife Leah and wanted to get Greenstein out of the picture. So we shot him ten paces right between the eyebrows. And it did not kill him. Not only. Did it not kill him? The bullet it smushed. The doctors went into retrieve it and found the bullet right under his skin flattened against his skull in Joseph Greenstein little guy barely five four gifted with an apparently Petr naturally card. Head found a calling. Hit the vaudeville circuit told his story intense in fields and small towns but kids touch scar. And he built out his act by building up his body. He became the mighty atom strongman the compact package with remarkable bow who drove nails through would with his fists, bent, straight metal rods into hardships who broke chains with his bare hands and who among us would deny his fans, the metaphorical pleasures watching a fellow Jew break chains with your hands. In the nineteen thirty eight the year. Hank Greenberg hit fifty eight home runs and walked hundred nineteen times. The mighty atom was packing them. In theaters all over New York.
