The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

"That's eight hundred four to three talk so linda. The plymouth four hundred board made clear that this is not a celebration. This is a commemoration. Why is that distinction important. And what does it mean to you as a member of the quinoa pennock. Well what it means is that i mean other. Anniversaries of the landing of the mayflower Have been Put on as celebrations and what gets left out of that story Is the one thousand people 'cause the the mayflower sailed into pawtuxet. That's village space that they landed in but they sailed into the territory of the larger nation of people Which had sixty nine villages at one time of which pawtuxet was one okay And even though we had suffered a huge plague lost yellow greater percentage are of population. There were probably we estimate twenty twenty thousand people or so still left in the want the nation so and the losses from that plague. Linda tell us a little bit more about that because it was a massive loss. Yes it was massive and it often gets construed that we all died out which was not the case entire villages were lost And you know pe- if there were any survivors they moved to other villages is But we there's no record that exists of that but there still were many intact villages like south of plymouth. I think on the western edge of Walking on country which is on The eastern side of narragansett bay That remained intact and even though we had lost a lot when the bay flower landed. I think that people were kind of in the process of trying to reformulate and and regroup you know from 'cause the plate was sixteen sixteen to eighteen so in an interview with you linda in preparing for this one of the things that you pointed out that was just so striking to me was there. Was this this. Massive loss of life that the pilgrims. You felt construed as a i. I'm almost uncomfortable. Saying it as god clearing the path for them there there were different people. john smith Nathaniel martin. I think you know various people who authors who who wrote things they did say that that this cleared the land for a better people..

"Going beyond the early years those first ten years of english present sixteen twenty to sixteen thirty moving out across picking up the stories of king. Philip's war The museum has had a two character. Play built around king philip's war and the experience of songs qua- our shanks benjamin church that that we have done throughout new england and even at the united nations so these are stories that the museums been telling for years but we we need to go deeper and diversify at the number of stories being told. What are you most excited. Excuse me for people to encounter when we can have full live encounter experiences again to be able to handle history because part of the experience of being at plymouth is not just speaking to someone but being able to to do the work to touch a for to feel the fabric to stir a pot Right now we were able to open in june moving all of our staff outside masked and for the first time wearing microphone so that they could be understood from a distance. But the fact that you couldn't invite guests to work with you and do things with your hand them a book that they could they could read from. We're looking backwards. We're looking forward to being able to do what we once did. Which was much more activity. Not just talking. Well that is. Richard pickering deputy executive director and historian of the plymouth. Pawtuxet museum richard. Thanks for your time today. Thank you so much great to have you okay. So in normal times which these aren't a four hundred anniversary would be a really big deal. Plymouth had planned events commemorating the four hundredth threw out twenty twenty many had to be cancelled or they removed to a virtual event due to the pandemic which means that a year that should have brought a lot of tourism. And the money. That comes with that to plymouth. Didn't so what kind of impacted that half joining us. Now is lee philipson director of see plymouth and the former governor general of the general society of mayflower descendants lee. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much. I'm honored to be with you. So lee. how long had businesses organizations nonprofits cultural institutions been planning for the four hundred anniversary commemoration. Well over ten years everyone has been planning and doing all sorts of things to get ready. There has been infrastructure. Done to the town of plymouth. There have been people that have ordered lots and lots of merchandise. That would help. People have collectible items to remember plymouth and so you can only imagine what a devastating year. It's ended up being for plymouth. So lee when you talk about all the merchandise. I'm imagining boxes. Full of t shirts and coffee mugs and baseball caps. What is some of that may never get opened in may never be warm sold but what is something. We might not imagine that. The businesses and community organizations have lost by not being able to mark this year in the many ways that were developed during that decade of planet. While plymouth is america's hometown.

"Later in the show. We're going to talk to a historian. Who is a member of the tribe. Let me ask you though. How does the museum itself. Present the history of the dog and native people In pawtuxet and the story of what what what happened to them when the pilgrims came well. We have one of the oldest native studies programs in the nation It's going to celebrate. Its fiftieth anniversary in twenty twenty three and so for decades. The museum has been moving toward that story that these communities are living face to face lives. They are not separate and the archaeology that the museum has done with umass. Boston is showing the proximity in the early years that they're only feet apart from each other and in the early years it is likely that Usa megan his people are planting on the other side of town brook. So they're seeing each other every day and it's one of the reasons that we chose in twenty twenty after much introspection to change the museums name to plymouth pawtuxet museums so that both of those stories occupy the space and that our guests understand it is still pawtuxet for native people. It is still toxic and it was not plymouth until sixteen fourteen after captain john. Smith's mapping voyage and so we need to think of the constancy of the native experience. Their survivors overtime. They're coming back from the tragedies of the seventeenth century that all of these are layers like archaeology and every life needs to be recovered and every voice needs to be listened to. You know i'm listening to you. And i'm thinking about sort of twenty twenty as this line of demarcation in so many ways and one of those is how we are telling ourselves our history. This is the we are grappling with. Our racial history are ethnic history our economic history. What else in the next era of the plymouth pawtuxet museum. What other stories do you wanna bring forward further. What else needs to be told. And how do you imagine you'll be telling the story a hundred years from now in the last four years we've been working with a number of native and colonial scholars on a project we're calling along the shores of change and that's a phrase that we got from linda combs who was on the museum staff for many years and lend wanted later in the show is wonderful And looking at the landscape as a place of change over time so that.

"This is radio boston. I'm gonna during four hundred years ago today. That's december eighteenth. Sixteen twenty the mayflower set anchor at. What's now known as plymouth massachusetts. At the time it was called pawtuxet now for those who grew up in new england the story of the pilgrims their journey on the mayflower their settlement and plymouth their childhood staple. You might even have taken a field trip to plymouth plantation. Which is now called plymouth pawtuxet. Today we're gonna take a fresh look at that four hundred year old story. We'll look at how we have celebrated the landing at plymouth. Rock the parts of that history that have gone largely untold and will reflect where this story fits into the overall story of our nation. So let's begin and we'll begin in plymouth joining me now. Is deputy executive director and chief historian of the plymouth pawtuxet museum richard pickering richard. Welcome thank you so much for having me. So richard take us to december eighteenth. Sixteen twenty on the boat. Today was a day that a small exploring party went out and they were looking up and down for a final place to plant in the territory known as pawtuxet so if folks know the map of southern new england they were actually moving more and more away from what is now plymouth center to what is kingston massachusetts but ultimately they chose to settle on the site. That is now leyden street in plymouth massachusetts. Now you said final. And that's because they had already landed in cape cod and spent a month sending out these scouts right there. There were three parties of exploration. That said out from the anchorage at what is now province town each time the men finding that either the soil was not suitable or they were worried about water supply and whether the water would be brackish and on the third party one of the sailor said i know of a place and for me. That one is particularly dramatic because in their crossing from pl- from province town to what is now plymouth. The men were caught in a horrific storm. The shallow the thirty three foot boats that they were in its mast shattered. Its rudder broke and one of the sailors was able to say. Do what i tell you. And we will live and they used oars for a rudder but they were almost drowned. They made it to clark's island. It was saturday the next day being the sabbath they rested and on the monday. They went ashore and they looked at patuxent and in. That moment realized that's where they wanted to be a for me as historians. We always need to remember the human cost and the emotion. William bradford is part of that third adventure and when he returns to mayflower in province town. I think of a young husband who's going back with wonderful news. They found a place to settle and he climbs up the side of the mayflower with this news..

"Today. We're looking back at an episode of bewitched called. Snap thanksgiving to remember. It's from season. Four episode twelve bewitched is about a witch samantha who marries a mortal man. Darren tries to balance between being a housewife without using her powers and her family. Who disapproved for mixed marriage and often interfere. In the couple's lives bewitched ran for eight seasons on abc from nineteen sixty four to nineteen seventy-two. So this episode opens up an samantha. Meager is in the caption preparing thanksgiving. Dinner she is putting the turkey in the oven. When all of a sudden there is a huge crash is she's like what before so she runs in the living room and sees her aunt clara covered in soot and cameras. Apparently she pulls a santa and came down the chimney so inclined switch but she kinda like bumble things up. She's old so her powers are used. She's a little senile and bubbly. Like i don't know how. I got here but i guess i'm gonna stay for thanksgiving. Dinner is so samantha. Calls darren to tell him that aunt clarice here and he's like off right because basically he hates samantha's which family because they're always getting into shenanigans and he just wants to like live a normal life but he picked the wrong partner for that so they're gonna have dinner and aunt clara starts to tell samantha darren's child tabitha about the first thanksgiving and how wonderful it was and they're all like you were at the first thanksgiving and she's like yeah. It was great. I met all these people wish i could go to plymouth and meet all my old friends. And he's like oh we'll book your weight you can go right now. She's like this. Go with my power. So she does a little magic's parallel turkey pulled down. Send me back to limit town. Of course it doesn't work that way you will get your plane. It's gonna be okay. She's like no no. Let me try again. Meanwhile better like nosy neighbor gladys covid knocks on the door and sneaks in an aunt. Clara's lay reciting her spell a wings felt in turkey pool down. Take his back to plymouth town in a booth. They appear in plymouth except aunt clara ends up bringing the whole family and gladys kravitz. Along with her. Darren is not happy about the situation. He says will take a plane home as he walks outside. He realizes that they're not twentieth century. Plymouth there in seventeen saturate. Plymouth has white men dressed as native americans walk. By this is true last kravitz. Passes out 'cause she's just like overwhelmed. With the whole situation ratifies. A kind of exciting darren reminder that they burned witches then and he wants samantha to get them out of there asap but she explains that aunt clara zap them there. And she's the only one can zapped the back samantha. Waves are arms. Gives them all pilgrim close so they can fit in darren's long hair so it is very sixties to kind of funny a. Yeah he looks like he's green and he's a true. It's like totally likes prince valium but like fall like brown leg if that straight light page-boy lay cut. Yes there's a knock at the door and we need john alden. Who invites them to attend. Their thanksgiving feasts after samantha explains evade just derived from out of town. Darren has a hard time remembering to use the correct speech of time like the shakespearian die and whenever so the family goes to sit at the table. But the pilgrim the head of the table finneas says that the women can't sit with them. It should be attending to cooking. Darren again forgetting what time period. He's in tells him not to speak to his wife in that tone of voice and then he corrects himself. Speak not to my wife. Justly samantha tells darren she'll be okay heads off to wear. They're doing the cooking. Darren sits at the table and chats with the other men also. I find it kind of areas. That there ain't no mater americans at this feast. That supposed to thanksgiving is all out till drums is weird. 'cause you see them in the beginning just walking by. I don't know go for historical accuracy here but it's a witch show. So what do you expect anyway. So severe clara are also being and samantha. Still like double double toil and trouble samantha's leg. This is no time for if it felt appropriate. Because you have like a call to a back at the table the pilgrims talking about how they love to burn witches. Darren gets a little nervous. Because of samantha dare visits samantha. Gloves in samantha acids start fire in durham desert but he lights a mash and finneas seizes and shouts that he's a witch Says her points to samantha. But then he says no how. The yeah at accuses durham. Yeah next thing you know during the on trial and they're gonna try to burn at the stake if they convict him of being a witch. The trial begins and finneas brings about all this Fees like i. He's talked to me in the speech. Said hi there. How you doing and bewitched him to trip and then he was talking about. How patient burn the witches and then he saw like the match. Darren is leg. It's just chemicals on would lake. I can do it right now until he does it. They're all like oh. What is this witchcraft. To nieces like wall. Why should i be able to do it. Then they're like you already lit. It's not gonna light again. And so they're convinced that he's a witch and he wants to defend himself but he doesn't know what to do. If i don't say i'm guilty of being a witch him to be burnt out the steak and if i do gonna be burned at the stake. He's on a lose. Lose situation samantha. Stands up to defend darren the judges allow it and samantha gives an impassioned speech. He says if you're clumsy. It's not your fault cry. Which if you're forgetful don't blame yourself cry which whatever your failings. It's not your fault you can place the blame on someone else. How do you tell who is a which if they speak differ from you assign a witchery. Does he showed different mannerisms which we of course what if you look different or she whose name had a different sound view. Zaman your neighbors closely. You will find many differences so that no one is safe from the charge of witchery she asked. Is that what you see in this new world. She thinks not the hope of this. World lies in the acceptance of all differences in the recognition of our common in the courtroom claps in aunt. Clara says here here finneas than says. But one of the stick samantha tells distracted and she uses her magic sirri. Light the match miles standish. The judge says that since you lit the match she must confess to being a witch. Or withdrawal. The charges against darren and clara recalls the incantation justice finneas withdraws the charges and darren is declared innocent wing of fire. I flame take us back to whence we came in with a purple plume of smoke. They're all zapped back to the twentieth. Century mrs kravitz screams. Runs home sure that she finally has approved. She needs to tell her husband. Avenue that samantha is a witch but samantha quickly puts everyone back in their modern day clothes and she is confused again so the family finally sits down to their thanksgiving. Dinner darren tells samantha that everything's delicious. Enact clara mentions plymouth again. Darren asked her change the subject because he doesn't want to talk about it in clear that says that christmas is coming soon in suggests the trip to take tablets. Meet the real santa claus. She says of the north pole. Isn't that far away. Darren looks mature. Then that's the end of that. When does therein not with Yeah he's got resting.

My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak. They arrived in the
We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated
A deep dive into American Thanksgiving
"Four hundred years ago a ship pulled up on the shores of cape cod mass sits. The merchant ship wasn't carrying. It's normal cargo of dry goods and wine this time it carried more than one hundred people people seeking religious freedom and a new way of life seeking a new world but the world they found across the ocean wasn't new. It was his oldest people who lived there the wont people the people of the first light. It was as old as the corn beans and squash. They grew and as old as the songs they sang. This week on unreserved. You've probably heard about the first meal the pilgrims in native american shared so today. We're going deeper into that history and finding out more about the walnut people and how that votes arrival changed everything. This year to commemorate the arrival of the mayflower celebrations were planned in the united states. Womp dog people were consulted in the lead up to the mayflower four hundred events. This time they wanted their history and truths at the forefront and to examine what it meant when the mayflower landed on this side of the ocean. Things weren't unfolding in exactly the same way in plymouth. England when art historian stephanie. Pratt was invited to advise on an art piece. That was going to celebrate the mayflower voyage. She decided to help correct. Its course and in doing so. She brought clarity to the conversation about the mayflower in. A part of the world were indigenous. History is not as well known. We've reached her at her home in devon england. Stephanie welcome to the show. Hi there so this project you advised on a part of your involvement with mayflower. Four hundred Massive program events mostly in the uk To mark the mayflower voyage. That happened four hundred years ago. So how did you get involved with mayflower four hundred well as sort of a a slow buildup i suppose i began probably in about twenty eighteen to advise on what was called the educational committee or the the educational program for mayflower for hundred and i kind of was snuck in by a friend of mine his name is danny riley and he is probably wanted to spearhead people along with his wife angeles sherlock who have really been very critical of the whole process. The help build up the complete while what they would call sanitizing of history. And so you had some reservations about taking on this role. Can you can you tell us why. That was why i think danny himself said you know this is gonna be kind of a poisoned chalice because You know that you're going to be helping. Make them feel better about what they're doing. And so i know that you were part of shaping. A massive art installation near where the mayflower would have departed plymouth. england near where you are today and it's a. It's a sculpture of lights that spells out the words. No news world's Can you tell me about that sculpture. Well the the artists that were involved in that sculpture. They're called still moving. And they've known each other for many years and i think when the first Announcement of ding for art projects under the mayflower umbrella came up. These guys took advantage but they admitted to me later on that they at the beginning had really no idea what the mayflower was. What it what it represented certainly not what representative indigenous peoples north america. So they were told at the beginning. You know you have to be careful with this but what they came up with was the idea that they would have in lights. The words the new world and they presented that to locals in plymouth. some of whom were very critical and said no. You cannot absolutely cannot do that but you need to talk to stephanie. So they came up to exeter where i live and asked me about it and my very first reaction was says. No that's ridiculous. You absolutely cannot say the new world what are you talking about. There never was a new world. We live on one planet. This is what it is. You know trying to teach little kids. I guess that's how i felt and And they were very very grateful and they listened and luckily they had another idea which was to put up a changing sign or changing signed edge. Which would move between the words new worlds no new worlds no world and so forth so they had several iterations they would use and i said yes. That's that's the one you need to go with.

Does Law Enforcement Need Mental Health Care?
"Gabe Howard calling into the show today we have Gabriel Nathan. Gabriel is the executive director of eighty-seven recovery. Diaries and they produced a film series called beneath the vest first responder mental health and features police officers, EMS personnel, dispatchers, fire service all individuals talking about trauma and complex PTSD Gabriel. Welcome to the show I. Thanks for having me. It's great to be here. Gabriel. Today we're going to be talking about law enforcement reform and I know that you have a lot of thoughts on the subject first of all before I really get into the. Weeds of the question would I have found is whenever you are taking a position that is critical in any way of law enforcement or attempts to raise questions even about the way law enforcement agencies do anything. It is extremely important to establish your own bona fide because anybody who steps up to challenge law enforcement is immediately regarded with suspicion. Paranoia is dismissed as a quote Lib tarred Troll anti-cop Antifa, whatever I'm none of those things I am someone who for the last twenty years has been an advocate for slain police officers and their families through editorials commentaries in newspapers I've attended over ten police funerals in Philadelphia, down to Maryland. I have done a lot of advocacy work for law enforcement in regard to mental health of first responders. I'm very well aware of the suicide rate for police officers. I am someone who knows law enforcement culture. I am someone who has a respect for police officers and what they do, and so I just want people to know that I am doing this from a place of love and concern and from a position of someone who believes ardently that they're absolutely needs to be changed and radical reimagining of law enforcement across the board. Thank you Gabriel for say and all that, and I agree with many of your points and I wanna point out that you were a recent guest on another podcast I have the pleasure of hosting not crazy and you had so much to say, well it it's built over into a second podcast. I strongly encourage all of our listeners to head over to central dot com slash not crazy and check out that interview. Alright. Gabriel to get started. You believe that in many ways we're recruiting the wrong people and that a lot of our problems start early even before police officers get into the academy. Yes. Look at the people who go into law enforcement. Okay. A lot of people decide they WANNA be cops when their children, they're watching shows like cops they're watching shows like law and order they're watching the weapon movies even as far as Hill Street Blues I would say that this problem started with Hillstreet Blues, the opening credits of Hillstreet Blues. I, love the music and then the garage door opens and the Plymouth fury is in the garage with red lights bursting out of the graduates exciting, right so who is drawn to that Profession Action Junkies? It's people who want that adrenaline rush and then we put them in situations where they're in a constant state of hyper arousal they're always looking around they're doing the head swivel. Someone's GonNa hurt me as someone GonNa, shoot me. In a twenty five year career most police officers never fire their weapon. Never fire their weapon once. Many. Many police officers never pulled their weapon and yet that's the kind of human being that is drawn to that profession and I have had people tell me well, we pull in people who are really resilient well is that what you're doing or are you pulling in people who are craving action and are not necessarily maybe the most empathic people because a law enforcement agency can't function if a police officer responds to a call and then starts falling apart emotionally because they can't process what they saw. So maybe law enforcement is either consciously or subconsciously trying to pull people in who maybe don't have that kind of empathic response. That's not who I want riding around in a patrol car with a firearm and the power of arrest.
"plymouth" Discussed on Talking Mopars
"Only available with a three forty. It's clear to me. That in Nineteen Seventy Plymouth. Really wanted to promote the KHUDA as the car. That could fill any of your needs. Maybe you didn't need a big HAMMY. Maybe you just wanted something fun and sporty three forty Khuda and if you wanted a monster you could get the four forty six barrel the Hemi car so in my opinion I think like if you look at all the options of all these cars the Khuda seems to be the car that a lot of people would look towards if they really wanted a lot of choices so I thought that was pretty interesting looking at the cars in one car that stands out to me in the Plymouth. Rapid Transit System of nineteen seventy is the sport fury GT. It's interesting to me that they had the four forty in the forty six barrel but they didn't have an option for Hemi the C. bodies like the Sport Fury G. is a big car. Now they did give you the four forty six barrel which was cool but come on it would have been so cool to have a sport fury. Gt with a Hemi. Am I wrong? I think it'd be really cool. And you know every car in this lineup. With the exception of the sport fury and the duster you could get him in you know. I think they may have made a mistake. There I think they should have offered the sport fury. Gt with a Hemi. And I think they should have did big blockbusters too. I think that would have made a lot of sense. Especially since they had big block a bodies in the past you know they had dodge darts with big blocks in. They had Plymouth Barracudas with big blocks. So why not throw big block in the dust? I never understood that? That's why I wasn't alive back then and working for Chrysler because I probably would have made decisions like that notice that. Hey we got a duster three forty. Let's do a duster three eighty three or four forty. That'd be pretty fun. And Heck while read. It was due a duster Hemi. Let's do a Hemi duster now if I were to compare the sixty eight dodge SCAP pack versus the Seventy Plymouth Rapid Transit System. That would be a really tough. I might have to do an episode of this show where I compare the SCAP packing the rapid transit system because both of those programs at Chrysler were amazing and they all produce some really really cool cars so I think that'd be a fun comparison. But that's pretty much the gist of the Plymouth Rapid Transit System for nineteen seventy. I thought I would just go over the cars and give you some engine options and then I wanted to include something. That was kind of fun. Close out the show so now that you have a general knowledge of the General Knowledge of the Plymouth Rapid Transit System. Let's do something a little fun here. There were actually some dragged test. Comparisons that were performed by none other than drag racing legends. Ronnie socks and Buddy Martin in some of the rapid transit system cars of nineteen seventy. The cars. They tested were the duster. Three Forty A. G. T. X. With a four forty four barrel a roadrunner with a four forty six barrel a coup two three forty a Khuda three three and a Hemi Khuda. It should be noted here that all the vehicles tested had seven twenty sevens with the exception of the three forty cars the duster and the KHUDA. So let's go over some of those drag times in some of the comments that sox and Martin made from their experiences behind the wheel of some of the cars of the rapid transit system. Let's start with dust or three forty out of ten quarter mile runs the district. Three forty averaged fourteen point zero seven in the quarter mile at one hundred point zero nine miles an hour and along with the test on the drag strip. They also ran all these cars at willow springs which is a two and a half mile road course so along with fourteen second quarter mile. They really pushed the duster on the road. Course their average time was one minute. Fifty point nine seconds at an average speed of eighty one miles an hour and those were the averages from five laps and here are some of the comments sox and Martin made about the dust or three forty. I'd like to own this car. Maneuverable like the way you can hang the tail end out. Nice little car and it doesn't cost much. Think maybe I'm GonNa buy me one. So that was the duster three forty. Let's move onto the road runner. Four forty six borough car out of ten quarter mile runs. They averaged thirteen point. Sixty one at one hundred six point one zero miles. An hour and at willow springs out of seven laps. Their best time was one minute. Fifty point three seconds at Eighty. One point zero six miles. An hour and here are socks and Martin's comments on the roadrunner performance. Wise One of the Best Cars Plymouth offers with the air grabber and the BP Porn. A ball run around breaks field tremendous. The six barrel is really sweet motor. When do we all right? Let's move on to the. Gts Six out of ten runs the GTS averaged thirteen sixty two at one hundred two point ninety one miles an hour and on the road course. The average was one minute. Fifty Point Eight seconds at seventy nine point zero nine miles an hour and the comments from sox and Martin were very strong and comfortable. The family type supercar like the dash layout nice finish equality automobile. Now we're getting into the tests of the Kudos so let's go ahead and start with a coup two. Three forty out of ten runs the average. Quarter-mile E. T. Was a fourteen fifty five at ninety eight point three miles an hour and out of five laps. The average lap time at willow springs for the three forty. Khuda was one minute. Fifty point five seconds at eighty one point four or five miles an hour. The comments that sox and Martin made about the three forty. Khuda were really handles the real sporty car of the bunch. Three forty really screams mild under steer easiest car to adapt to moving onto the three. Khuda out of ten laps. The average quarter-mile was a fourteen thirty nine at ninety eight point ninety eight miles an hour and out of five laps on the willow springs course. The average was one minute. Fifty one point nine seconds at eighty point forty three miles an hour and the sox and Martin comments were cards is flat runs good slapstick. Shifter really gets it done gets around almost as good as the three forty like the color Letsie and last but not least the elephant powered Hemi Khuda out of ten quarter mile runs. The average E. T. was a thirteen fifty four at one hundred seven point two six miles an hour and out of six laps on willow springs the average lap. Time was one minute fifty. Two point. Seven seconds at seventy nine point eighty six miles an hour. Here were the SOX and Martin comments on the Hemi boy nothing but nothing sounds like a good old Hemi. A real hoss carbs flutter just a bit in the turns car understeer might but it feels flat and solid so folks. What did we learn about these tests? I'll tell you one thing. We didn't learn much because we all pretty much knew that the Hemi Khuda was going to beat everybody in the quarter mile but not by much the roadrunner with a four forty six barrel ran an average thirteen sixty one at one hundred six point one miles an hour and the Hemi Khuda ran an average of thirteen fifty four at one hundred seven point two six miles an hour so it barely be the four forty six borough road runner and that's no surprise everybody. There's always this argument about the four forty six pack or six barrel versus the Hemi and whose faster I guess it just depends on which carrier in I would've loved to see the Hemi Khuda versus the four forty six barrel. That would have been a fun run so we learned that the road runner is just a little bit slower than the. Hemi Khuda in the quarter mile. But who on the road course? If you would ask me to take my best guess I probably would have said the duster three forty would have one and I would have assumed that because it's the lightest car the bunch and I would assume that it's more nimble and with the three forty. You know that thing wraps out really good so I wouldn't be surprised if that thing was just hauling around the corners. The only problem is that it was a four speed now with the four speed of helped on the road. Course I don't know I guess it depends on shifting but what we learned. Is that the car that was actually fast on. The road course was surprise. Surprise the four forty six zero roadrunner. It actually beat out these second fastest car which was the three forty Khuda followed by the dust or three forty in third place which was a surprise to me. The three forty Kudo with a four speed is just a little bit faster than three forty duster. I'd really like to drive a three forty duster and a three forty Khuda and just see what the because in my mind. I would think the dust or being lighter would be a better handling automobile but I guess I was wrong. The duster did beat out the Khuda in the quarter mile. So that's kind curious too so I guess if you were comparing the two in which one you really wanted styling side and you were just looking at the numbers. Do you WANNA be faster in the turns or do you. WanNa be faster in a straight line? I'm always gonNA say faster straight line. But that's just me so I guess I would have to go for the dust or three forty but those are the cars of the Rapid Transit System folks. I hope you enjoyed today's episode. And I hope you might learn something new about the Plymouth Rapid Transit System that maybe you didn't know before so thanks for joining me here today. On this installment of high performance heritage everybody offers a car. But only Plymouth offers a system if you can't beat it joining the rapid transit system that does it. I this week talking. Mo- Pars I realized this episode was a little late but I hope it was worth the wait. I also hope you guys had a happy Hemi Day and I can't wait to talk mo part again with you next week.

"Zero four. In the. Listeners. We don't know if Plymouth rock exist in your time, presumably the rock will be there. But maybe the succession of because egos Muslims have fallen over one of the namesakes of the rock. So there are a lot of things named after the Plymouth rock, and one of Plymouth rocks namesake's is the Plymouth rock chicken. There's a chicken named for Plymouth rock, which is one of the most popular chickens, it's a sort of grey, barred chicken, that lays Brown eggs and for a time was, I think maybe the most popular egg-laying chicken in America. And again, it was sort of bread developed in the in the late eighteen hundreds and it's entirely possible that future lanes are all descended from Plymouth rock, chickens. They're great singer. Are they going to be insulted that we tell them that they are amazing chickens, but named for crappie rock? Well, for all we know by the time those chickens ruled the roost. They may have developed technology to actually get the rock in, in its entirety in its cemented together in tire out of the harbor. They can move things with their mind. Yeah. That's right there. Like they raise up the x wing fighter out of the swamp and actually put the rock somewhere, where their fellow chickens can see in that case Plymouth rock would have literally landed on, like, Malcolm X set. That's right. We didn't land on Plymouth rocket landed on us. I can't believe we got through episode about seventies patriotism, in civics, and you did not mention schoolhouse rock, once well, and that's where school house rock is where I learned the preamble to the constitution. It's where I learned the whole process of Bill going through congress. Is there a schoolhouse rock about the pilgrim stuff? I'm not actually. Sure if there is me, I'm going to do the tro while you what you get yourself. Okay. Go ahead. Even Plymouth rock has been levitated to a different place by super intelligent chickens. Social media. We assume will be dead and gone. Another crappy sofa sized relic of our time. There is a plume of there is a schoolhouse rock about just, just in its called, no more kings. Do you remember that one kings rocketed a role in split in splashing over the horizon? What can it be I get complaints? When I don't validate your schoolhouse rock, nostalgia. Did you know that right? Yeah. People right? You and say, how dare you not be older generation xer? It's like when people think you don't appreciate the puns, and it's really or you didn't get the no I get all your just like do, do I try from the beginning of the show. I've tried not to validate your punning and it I it I feel like it only encourages you. It's getting the same thing about squirrels route, and I'm trying not to encourage you to, to references to take everything go out. John, and I were on social media.

"Thomas Pons, who is the son of a colonist who arrived in sixteen twenty two. So not one of the very first but within a given. Yeah, but I mean if he's ninety five he's probably one of the last links at this point to the to the generation. That's right. When he was a kid growing up there were, I mean all around him in his community were original pilgrims and his father was very early on. Thomas says, wait, the place you're going to build this peer covers up that great rock. And let me tell you that my father, he's got lower. My father said that. That's the big rock the rock where the pilgrims I touched land. And he said, I'm going to send this very long story. He's telling where he mentions a lot of people, the listeners don't know, because I have met people in their nineties, he does a better job than that. He says, before I die. I would like to see the rock won last time. Oh, and so. So the young men of the colony in seventeen forty one put him in a chair a regular probably an eastern Ellen chair that would be worth eighty thousand dollars. Now, the original Adirondack chairs and they lift him up, and they carry him quite a distance down to Plymouth harbor, and you can imagine word goes out, and everybody says, oh, this is great like elder phones is going down to touch the great rock before he does doing transparent. And so they carry him down. And he. Reportedly, like sheds some tears upon the rock touch though, the rock elder Thomas, and they and they decide then that they're not going to build the peer over the rock. They're going to build the peer slightly down from the Robert again not from any actual thing. They remember from this very touching thing of an old man sharing story. He heard right from his father, who heard it from original Mayflower, colonist sure his father arrived, and they were like, oh, yeah, CO alerts the rock. So if we're keeping track here original colonists, tell his father who tell probably. They're just sitting in sixteen twenty two there aren't that many of them, right? So they're sitting around telling their stories, according to elder phones, Thomas's father tells him decades later, the town father, nobody else mentions it in all that time, it is now four degrees of separation from any possible. I witness and everyone's like, oh boy. Plymouth rock. He's ninety four and he's sitting around by fire thinking, no one ever come. To visit attention to Thomas anymore. So he's sitting on his porch and some young guy walks by and says, how are ya elder fonts and he goes, well, not so good. I'd like to see the old rock one last time. What are talking about? So at that point, it becomes a celebrated rock, within Plymouth, and in the great style of America after a while the residents of Plymouth, not content to have their great emblematic rock just sitting out way down at the beach ninety percent buried under sand decide that they're gonna move the rock. This is the American spirit. This is it this. We're going to improve this in seventeen seventy four. So these are revolutionary times. And there's a new fervor of patriotism patriots. The symbolism of the rock is very meaningful now. It is. And we're now one hundred and fifty year one hundred yeah, fifty years later and in breaking away from England. Where now very interested in this kind of symbolism and I'm not interested in the Susko centennial of Plymouth pilgrims, like in seventeen seventy was there, a big thing and did that help inspire a lot of the kind of fervor for independence. Right. You can only imagine that it probably would have been true. There were, there would have been tall ships, of course. But because they're always there already. They just ran a different standard of the poll. They were just no osmond's. They went over to province town. It wasn't yet a gay summer mecca. Or maybe it was it was gay in the whole time or both, but in seventeen seventy four. You can imagine there giant rock moving technology was still in its infancy a. How do you what do you do with Iraq that, so they dug it out and attempted to move it into the town square where they, you know, of course, this was the shining rock..

"In an event called king Philip's war, a local tribal leader was like, wait a minute, like and not motivated to push them off the off the beaches and back into the sea as much as realizing that they were making alliances with some tribes that were in competition with him for resources and you know, and, and that series of skirmishes lasted for, for really a couple hundred years up through the war eighteen twelve rider, the French and Indian wars, at least through the revolutionary war, but Plymouth colony survived, and only survived by the skin of its teeth. But by the time fifty or sixty years had passed it, they the colonists had established of a strong foothold they built a lasting community. They had made. Row relative alliances. There were now at an an archipelago of other villages up and down the coast. The Dutch arrived, the Acadians arrived. I mean there were there were a lot of there was a whole network. Boston was flourishing a colony had been established, and it wasn't until seventeen fifteen almost one hundred years later, then ninety five years later, that the first mention of climate rock appeared in any of the many, many documents generated by this, this initial, we have plenty of records of the Plymouth poems. But for a hundred years, nobody mentions Plymouth route nobody mentions it. It's not a suspicion. It's not really a thing among the colonists themselves. And in seventeen fifteen it is mentioned as a feature of the Plymouth harbor, but only as a great rock, which is. Is on the beach in Plymouth harbor. There's no connection to the landing, so even even people bringing it up or not, like, and as we all know they're just describing the age. And and, you know, also there's a, you know, over to the left of the great rock behind the big fern is where I hid the eastern. And again, if you were heading a lunch toward the beach, you would not aim for the big rock know exactly the rock itself is one of these sort of glacial anomalous, Roth. What do they call us an accidental? Is that what? Glacial. Yeah. Accidents, right. A rock just deposited by retreating down there. And that's where it stayed when the snow melted. So it's not like a particularly rocky beach. There's not a ton of these, it is a landmark, but it's only in seventeen forty one now a hundred and twenty one years later, no one can remember. No one remembers there's no surviving colonists. But in seventeen forty one there's a suggestion that at Plymouth, they build a peer or there's a plan to. Build a peer because at this point boats no longer wash up on the beach, nor do they dock at a at a rock. They were they would like a big peer there in order to show, silicate, commerce gotta have appear even though Boston harbor's just right up the way and is a proper harbour Plymouth is always make is always sort of vying for status probably fishing boats leaving from there. And it makes sense but during this project to build this peer of an elderly resident of Plymouth town by the name of Thomas fonts, who's an elder in the community who's ninety four years old short for rally. Yeah. No found like the fonts. I think it's. Yeah. When I when I see it spilled. FAU NC. What french? Yeah. But it's probably so some old crusty new Englander name. Thomas Pons, who is the son of a colonist who arrived in sixteen twenty two. So not one of the very first but within a given. Yeah, but I mean if he's ninety five he's probably.

"Plymouth rock was an invention and invention that in the first place was not the place that the colonists landed the colonists landed initially in province, town on Cape Cod. Because it's it's the first thing you hit. Of course you're gonna hit Cape Cod, right? Yeah. And the they need to restock after that, long ocean voyage. You're not going to bypass Cape Cod and head toward Boston. Right. And if you arrive at Cape Cod, the eastern facing shore of Cape Cod is pretty inhospitable to landing ship. It's a, it's a sandy beach fronted by cliffs, and big dunes, and it's a beach that doesn't have. It's not a shallow beach. Right. It's you hit the beach, and then it drops off into ocean pretty fast and battered by w-. Waves and wind. Right. So have been the they landed on the winter. I think so. So they came around inside of Cape Cod, and there's a big hook there. And on the other side, there's a kind of more more sheltered as our the vacation beaches are province down today. That's right. And so they, they swung around inside the hook and anchored there and formed a little commute will it's not call it a community. They formed a little camp there, where they weathered the winter because these guys don't know where they're going. They're not the Plymouth pilgrims yet. There have no idea where they are. They don't know where the Plymouth colony is going to be there just trying to find a place where we can survive this winter. So they're looking for sites on Cape Cod. First of all. Yeah. And Kip cod is. There's not a ton of fresh water there. I mean, there are some sort of sin, not as or like little lakes and stuff. But it's not sandy, you wouldn't really plant your flag there and say, like let's start growing maize. They don't even know what mazes yet. So, yeah. So they might say, let's start growing a plant, we don't. About which is the new world quivalent of wheat. Yeah. Right. But they didn't say that they said, let's get back in our boats and sail across this inland bay over there. So they ended up in Plymouth, you know, the following season several months later and formed the Plymouth colony. Right. William Bradford was the sort of captain of this adventure yet the biggest buckle on his hat. So they made him a captain and they formed colony in sixteen twenty and being suffered all manner of privation, and made various alliances that often disintegrated with the local native Americans and there were all kinds of Chevy deals, but also the, there was quite a bit of friendship with the native Americans, and we got her them, sorry, not we but the initial pilgrims got into or rather intruded into pre existing rivalries and men packs with, with the tribes that were already. There and so- disrupted the local sort of ecosystem like human ecosystem. But it wasn't. There was nothing colic about the place. And in fact, a lot of the native American residents of that area had just in the year or two prior died of plague. So this that sense of -chusetts is one for four place. We have to live because main is even worse or something. You know, I've been feeling kind of down Ken. I've got some very high interest rate credit card debt, and I'm not sure what to do..
