"Welcome back. I'm talking to miss K Robertson and Lisa Roberts in the book his sister roar and miss K, you just said something. I know you told me this story before, but I can't believe it. You said that your husband Phil, the duck commander, he was so bad, this is it right at the beginning of your marriage, that he threw you and the kids out of the house. He needed some peace because you were nothing but trouble, obviously. Yes, because I was preaching at this at 27. I really, you know, my Jesus and lord of my life. Before I was a small kid, I didn't exactly know what it meant, but I became a Christian, and I just, you know, I tried to suddenly say thanks and not me, but that's what we got. I was being a holy role or something. He didn't like it. So that's when he put us out and I'll never forget it was a rainy night and I had a boat swag and man three little boys piled every time we could get in a Volkswagen and we went to his brother's house and I asked his brother we stay there because feel put us out and he said only one night, only one night you can stay and I was like, okay and then I said, mind if I only one night because I didn't think I'd ever done anything to offend you and he said, hey, it's not you at all. I'm scared to fail. That's what he said. I'm scared of him. So I said, okay, so I can to the present time we live in now and went to the church, the big church that we got to. And I just told him, I said, I need help, you know? And we got in a little apartment, it was paid by what you make. And I already made 250,000 a month. So that's all I had. And me and the boys, we just prayed for him every day, and they got on the bus, probably it's called the pink buses and if you invite the neighbors, like, come, so it really helped my kids with their loss of not having their daddy. But we prayed for him. We prayed for him and then quickly to end this. He came to my work at a lunchtime, and I was coming in from lunch and my girlfriend said, oh no, there's fail and he's lucky he's laying on his steering wheel. She said, what do you think? And I said, I don't know, but I've got to face it and she said, what if what if he's got a gun in his future? I said, well, you've been watching too much. But number two is, you just watch from here and make sure nothing happens to me. So I go out there and he had been crying, and I've never seen Phil cry. You know, big tough man. You know, cry. And so he said, I'm sorry. He said, I love my family. I can't live without my family. And I just can't eat, and I can't sleep, and he said, I want you. I want you back, and I'm sorry about what I did, all those ten years and I said, Bill, this was my heart was going about a hundred miles an hour. And I said, let me tell you something. You can't do it by yourself. You've said a hundred times you were going to quit. And you didn't. And he said, well, I need to talk to somebody, and I said, well, I've got somebody lined up. It was a preacher at the church where I went. And he had this one time in the beer joint. Phil's baby sits your body men there, and he talked to film 5th day. Have you ever been drunk? And I preacher said, yes, I have. He said, but not lightly, and he said, no Phil, not since I come to Jesus. So anyway, whitefield said, I want that guy. He's right, we love to come in the bear joint, then that's who I want to talk to. And so they studied and the next night, when they said it again, we let him stay. And the boy said, daddy, please bring us that color TV. Mama's made us watch this little bitty black and white and we just can't stand it. So I don't know if the kids were as glad to see him as I wear the color TV. But we went the note was left on the door, please come to the church, hurry. And when we got to the church, where it was me and three little boys standing in the back and Phil was up at the baptistry and he was given his confession to make Jesus the lord of his life and of course my boys all had tears coming down and then Jason looked out and said, does that mean that devil is going to be in daddy and I said, no, he's not being there anymore. I said, Jesus is going to be a dad, not the devil. But I said, look, he don't know how to act as a Christian. So we're going to have to help him. And Jason said, he's pleased mama tell me he's not in custody. And I said, well, we hope you don't. But we're going to have to teach him. That's what we're going to have today. And that was really the beginning after the ten years and look at Phil now, you know how he is. Would you ever thought he was that other man? Well, yes, I would because I have a great imagination, but I will tell you, and because I haven't always been the way I am myself. So it's just but I just want to say how beautiful it is because I think what people need and this is why I'm glad you wrote the book.

one thank you so much for having me so much of your writing explores various themes of war and yourself in Iraq as a marine could you tell us how you first became a marine would inspire you to become a marine sure I you know from a family that the family my dad served in the Peace Corps which is a little different but definitely family that believed very much in the idea of her but in another I worked for years in international medical aid my my father's in the in the in the Peace Corps my maternal grandfather had been a career diplomat she grew up with my right hand and yeah in high school but I want to do I would have had that I wanted to become a diplomat like my grandfather but we were at war you know when I was in college we are in Afghanistan already heading into Iraq and it seemed like that was the best way to serve my country was to become a marine what was your perception of war prior to joining the marines and your deployment to Iraq and and how they let reality work compared with what your perception what he had never been a really interested in more especially growing up right I was always a big reader though a lot of one engine one came from well I had a professor in the college football is really wonderful helpline you know if you're in the military he insisted that I at one P. and I think that pulls the Calgary and please turn to the end of the night and a dozen other books because he thought that if I was going to be going to war I should learn about the greatest minds think about it right and that was that was one part of my education this one at that right I mean you know the war is distinct and different a lot of kind of moral issues and concerns that people want to grapple with Hey there their commonalities he spoke to him for that if you read about war you know this is like the great literature of war in the twentieth century tends to have someone in the comments right whether it's politics for weather okay in two hours twenty two or you know Vietnam fiction and apply and if you're like dispatches there's also the popular history right it is very different much more twenty four and no not really this is the sum of the total talk about a different register you know from twenty countries literature but also a popular history of Monday well publicly the food I mean it was just the very war so I kept trying to figure out what was unique about the four teens like hold sure thing about this war one of the motivating things to write the book tell people what they were missing but for me to figure it out myself because of course you you you go over to a war strange thank you first you don't really know what to make of it did you take notes while you were serving in Iraq I do you have any intention of conveying your experiences in the book former NSA yeah yeah that'll ultimately end up writing about this right like I've always writing you know you have the kind of people how to take everything that is confusing and put into a form that was sort of it forced me to grapple with the underlying I kept track of things that interested me right no exactly looking to do or that I would end up you know writing about this program the way that I did yeah no surprise that I was you know very little about it I was so weird um yeah cool who's like I think poetry field exercises so grow up Catholic are you Catholic I thank the topic today yes I am so yeah not able to right now but yes AT and D. experience of mass now that I have a very different one it used to be but it so that has informed I think well when I was my next question how much do you pull in your case into your writing so I mean there's some areas where it's yes right there's a story in the book that is written from the perspective of the Catholic chaplain to the maybe hello right there the in that you know to think about what you know if you know what makes somebody a Catholic writer necessarily that you have the main characters like the previous ones like I think it is much about one of the things I think that as a are not allowed to do right despite some of the what what about and so I don't think you're allowed to right now all thank you and that the wall the job for the arena for human moral struggle is right that yeah our your available right you know these sorts of things how you approach doctors and think about them and struggled to get going and so you know it's not necessarily going to appear at a level and then on log in right you know his the allergy but rather I think the way you approach hello the individual who people your action and and help her we have about a minute left would you working on now well I have a novel that is coming out in October called missionaries and he American way of war hello it takes place in Afghanistan and America and in Colombia right in the park more two years writing this is the way in which you know the modern world everything is connected everything my great things because of the lack of a better so I've got four main characters American and Colombian culture how different wars all find their state why he also about I believe it's about the ideologies that we

"New book is the paper trail in unexpected history of a revolutionary bench. Paper begins somewhere in China first century AD. It's recognized by the empress that at the time, she's very powerful dung and her scribe Tilahun, who create paper to make documents. But we're now six seven eight hundred years later, and we're coming to a time the tying China Tang dynasty, that's powerful, but often at war wrong along the edges and there's one battle with paper, that's critical in Alexander presentation. It's a battle, I'd never heard of the battle of Tallus took place seven fifty one AD. If you puzzle what was going on in Europe, at this time, not much was the dark ages. It was the end of the Roman empire, which after all was a was an oral culture of the Roman empire Alexander the. Battle of callous. Okay. I give up a all things. How did this make the change from paper of the of the east paper of the west? This bizarre detail in what is now southern Kazakhstan Saddam, as if the Chinese and listen to pas me. And it's not very important bathroom militarily. It's very bottle territory. History. However, the, the Muslim win and they take Chinese by some found with them. The place historian out lobby records till then is to make paper that's being questioned whether this is true, but it is the actual story we have of how transferred from the world of East Asia Confucian coaches to the world of his lung, and it is it is roughly about time that we know that they making begin to take off in central Asia centered around the city. So this is eight hundred. This is the h century AD, and there are events that paper is going to make grow and the events start earlier in the telling because paper is a product that successful religions successful, empires successful rulers take advantage of they see how it's cheaper and better than oral culture or writing things down on wood or stone, or tying. And so if you recognize it your business plan in this case, your empire or your religion or your pursuit of spiritual. Good, prosper. We see we come now to paper coming to the land of the Manny of Persia. This is a form of religion. It's released a synchronous tick, it's, it's several kinds of religion together. There's a little Christianity. There's a little Judaism, there's a little Buddhism. There's a little Zoroastrianism. It comes together we call it today. The manichean heresy because the Christians along with everybody else where so alarmed at the spread at the, at the growth of Manny. But Manny the Manny more shippers along after the original the original preacher. Manny worshipers learned to take advantage of paper. How do they do that? Alexander. Very early. I think he thinks he realized if he won't make a religion bread quickly. Why not take the back of the different religions from around from around the world is evil. Ready implied? He takes he, he cherry picks different bits and pieces and says this is the actual sleeper religion site. Some people have said this is for, for weld religion manicheism because of the enormous extent, geographical spread. But the other thing he realizes is that there is enormous power and paper and that is not just to spread description. That's enormously important, and manicheism describes the people I just people around, because you, can you can. Three the creation of things beautiful manuscripts through awed by producing ready sensational off. You can people to your religion, you have a wild side to that. Others cannot compete with an unindicted was the case that by Muslim and Christian he'll allegiance complained that these products that they would they would dazzling people. And so I think that the power the power the pay not to communicate words and ideas. Two people would be with, with very important of the success of the religion. One of the strangest innovations and Alexander reports is the mini mini mini book. How did that work? Why was that appealing this tiny script of Greek? Good question. It's about but certainly we. Mannequins enormously invented in what they did with the page that they create it said Apopka texture of the page relate way you know, they would decorate it with different colors. Sometimes they would spring coup flex it gold on that unsafe playing around with the script playing around with the images hang around with the scale of the paper and say to Jason minute ship was seen as a very, very high scribe who advancement because unites garage. So that would much religious guys in is that you could write something about small do you must be an exceptionally devout religious site. That was that was sort of Arab. Some hiding that came with but using something miniscule you ask how small Alexander records one book with two and a half by one inches. Another one was one in three quarters by one in. Quarter. You wonder about the eyesight, the ability. I don't think they had magnifying glasses in the eighth and ninth century, perhaps, perhaps, they Berkoff said, come across that technology, but in any event, they're turning paper into objects of beauty. And that was a success for them. You note that mannequin isn't spread to Algieria and to South China. So the paper became the missionary, it was the document the documented self became the, the seducer of converts. Putting type it became an issue or anything. That's very true thing. That's why I'm the people. Until you got so annoyed. He and south, of course, the mannequin and later after his conversion he writes against it. He was he was annoyed at the extraordinary material. Hold people. So I think I think that's right. I think manicheism it realize that there is a material power that you can use with. We're going to Samarakone two more and the great conqueror and the building, of course and paper. But I just want to note before we leave the week. And the Mongols. They were always understood as savages, you have this wonderful emperor. However, who celebrates them plays dead. And has people right around him as if he's a dead, Mongolia, a dead weaker. What was it? What was the admiration where they Cowboys to the Chinese how they breath? It's a little bit like that. You're dishing of gypsies. Cooled in European history. United chips. He's kind of the other that wild people never settle on the kind of the opposite coach to settle Europeans in the same China, the mongo's with his kind of wild northern Holtzman, the Chinese civilization gang and that with these and dangerous people on that note Boorda who occasionally sweep down into China and say that was a kind of excitement about them, and that was an excitement about central Asia, and independent estate, which was extraordinary golden age of China, they became even more excited because it was huge exchange of huge exchange Phil cried, and they began to buy central-asian. Fashions. Raymond attached to it as a bit like oriented as in the west that was that was the right amount attached to the week, isn't the Mongols to these different culture. The celebration is he like we're going to the fourteenth century, Tim t to Timour of Samara can because Timour was a man Alexander describes as the paper emperor. The book is the paper trail an unexpected history of revolutionary invention Alexander Munro is the author. I'm John Batchelor. Point nine..

"The Pittsburgh Steelers made the bold move to the tenth spot round one to get the linebacker day wanted in Devon Bush had a chance to talk yesterday to the man who made that move G M Kevin covert about that pick and the rest of the Steelers draft in the current state of the team here is some of what I discussed yesterday was G GM. Kevin colbert. Did you have an upper limit on? Hi, how high you were willing to go to try to get Devon Bush. We know that we know that there were certain teams that weren't going to trade or if you were able to train into their market. It was going to cost you more than than we've you know, like to do or we have liked to do in the past. So this year we had the extra picks via the Antonio Brown. Brown. Trey we had the extra three and five which are Pinon. We're we're actually low twos and four so we had extra extra values that we could work with in the past. I've been very reluctant about trading a second round hit, but this year because that high three was in in, you know, in a relative phase to that to a second round pick. We were willing to do it. And that's what was required to get where Denver was. And fortunately, you know, they were agreeable to to this year three next year which three next year, probably too. Four in this year's draft. But as I say, we don't we don't follow it short. We just like to make up our own sort. And if we gotta do something, then we gotta do it. Depending on what we have to do to get something done, and our willingness to do it and with one of the picks that you acquired via the Antonio Brown trade. You took Deontay Johnson. What did you see in him? And how do you see him fitting your offense? The thing that was interesting about the onto Mike is he's played inside. He's played outside. He's done kicked in punt return. So there was four things we liked about him from ability pro- production standpoint. So when we looked at them again, he could cover lot of basis for us. But as I've mentioned, you know, one of our our college scouting coordinator, Phil cry when he read his report on the on must've said natural five times. And you know, we think he's a very natural football player. He gets open. He makes touches and wants to get the ball on his hands. He just has a real match for finding and creating space. So I think he'll be able to transfer that from the mid American conference to the NFL and only time will tell but that was what was really intriguing about him. You've done a great job over the years in drafting receivers between round three and six. Phenomenal job. How much of that is drafting and developing how much of that is the presence of the guy mentioned a little bit ago. Ben rothlisberger. You know, we hope it's we hope we're doing our job developing and drafting the right players, but you can't ignore the fact that you play with a great when you get the chance to play with a great quarterback, if you have ability it'll come out, and you know, Ben's been a huge part of all their careers, and can you know, vice versa. Those guys have helped Ben because they've been they've been great receivers. So in need you need a great quarterback to win Super Bowls as many as we'd like to win. But you know, the receivers they help. But I, you know, I think it's it's pretty evident that the common denominator and all those careers was was Ben, and we hope that it continues to be that new contract. He signed market value right at the top of the market close to it. Three years. Total is the thinking mutual three more years. And then Ben Rothlisberger is gonna walk off into the sunset. Sure, he doesn't have an expiration date. I I know that I know that he's still very competitive. He still wants to do this high level, and he doesn't want to do it. He doesn't need money. He doesn't need hall of fame credentials. I in my opinion. He's already achieved. Both those what he wants is more Super Bowls. Ben Rothlisberger doesn't need money, but he needed to be making more than Kirk cousins. Over the next three years. That's for Dr short. I mean, he's getting twenty eight and a half million twenty eight point three million Kirk cousins averages twenty eight million on a three year deal. And actually, the new money average is more than Aaron Rodgers for a guy that doesn't need money. He's getting paid. And he deserves to get paid. And I was a little bit surprised by the idea that maybe he will play on the next three years because it wasn't that long ago. He was talking about retiring. Yeah. Well, I think that's more and more. We hear those kind of comments at kolber. And then you go back and revisit, you know, the retiring comments, Ben Rothlisberger, the more and more. It makes you believe there was real big time friction between him and Todd Haley. And maybe that's why he was threatening the whole retiring thing, which you know, certainly seems to be to be true here in this in this subject. But a Ben Rothlisberger is a phenomenal talent. Again. I know I've said this many times lately, especially with all the Tonio Brown news. And all that. But I, you know, again, the guy off the field is you know, is clouding the judgment of what he is on the field a little bit too. I think the public and the media he is in that. You know, top ten greatest quarterbacks of all time conversation might not be in the top ten for everybody. But I think he's there in that special player big unbelievable. Arm was a really good athlete. You mentioned it some of those teams they went to the Super Bowl with. But those offense aligns you kidding me. I mean at that time he was him. And maybe one or two other guys the only kind of quarterbacks that could've made it happen behind that. Pittsburgh oh line when they lost to the Packers. And then beat the cardinals those Super Bowls. And even though you rarely see Ben Rothlisberger tucked the ball and take off down the field uncanny mobility to keep plays alive behind the line of scrimmage, and he still has a week after the draft. I still people saying that Dwayne Haskins lacks mobility in the pocket. He's got the same mobility burger has. Yeah. And it it if you can throw accurately. Wow. You are moving away from that pressure. And keep your eyes down the field. You can be a special quarterback in the NFL as long as you can avoid taking the big hits Rosberg for the most part, even though he gets banged up from time to time and maybe like to embellish it a little bit. That's okay. He's managed to be a great quarterback. And who knows how much longer he can do it. But maybe it's going to be more than three years, and it's good for the Steelers because Allah where they're going to go once Rothlisberger is gone. Yeah. No, you're right. I mean, ride it out. He's still playing awesome into you. You're saying to. Yes, straight ahead. Speed is not everything for mobility of quarterbacks. Dan Marino, Tom Brady. Ben Balsas.

I just feel like that this'll be our central perk. It's just. She's so basic. So then basically everyone arrives. And it's like literally, basically everyone arrives dress. Basically, I'm really being caddy all of a sudden this Katie does to me see I have a different Kate has different affecting me. I internalize my feelings about eighty and then I just see them out on everyone else. Everyone was based like at that party. Which is not true. Yeah. Well, that's what you're supposed to do with Katie. That's what she's here for beat ragging on, Katie. Okay. And I don't feel guilty because it's what they do to Sheena. I mean, that's what I do the Sheena too. But I guess what? The what's the point of guilt? Don't my God. Moral quandaries? Yeah. Yeah. They'll send me into my shame spiral. Okay. So then Vander prompt is like, ooh, it has come to fruition. Eight is magical, and katie's like that guy that drank it, basically, she says hi to the girls think kiss her ass a lot and stuff. Yeah.

I mean, one of the things with James we talked about it. At least I talk about it a lot like, you know, how I think he's a really interesting character because he's so awful. But then we see a lot of -bility in this. And that and I think one of the things that always works for James is that when he's like when he's being asked like Huck, but when he's being contrite, he they they're able to frame him as like this little boy, and he's just like in his little blazer like in a cubbyhole waving above like like, it's so nice. He gets step after his bedtime to play songs on his CD, blah. You know? Yeah. We also see how he actually DJ's because he runs to he runs to the cubbyhole presses play on I tunes. And then runs back out goes he's doing is. So that is so promptly DJ's is on a knee streak. I'm on behaving streak. Hey. Shonda? So checks has his obligatory scene with Fanta pumper, he pretends like he hasn't been yelling at her for five weeks. And she looked gorgeous. Yeah. Yeah. All that. So she's like she's like happy birthday to you broken inside. Yeah. Can you believe it? I'm thirty nine. Like vetting on. I've at least forty seven by now. Wow. Telling me, oh, mother has cold.
