"president mondale" Discussed on HowSound

"From Minneapolis to Iowa City, and he had been traveling 6 to 8 hours, I believe. The problem was he was in a rental car, and we could have called the state patrol and had them look for him, but we didn't know what rental car he had, and you weren't able to find that information either. Now the sun was going down, and my 81 year old dad was lost somewhere in between Minneapolis and Iowa City in the snow. On a highway on a holiday with no phone. Well, everyone else is sitting down to turkey and stuffing. My sister and I are scrambling with my cousins and anyone we knew to see if we could locate him. I didn't know what to do. That's good, right? Kitty clearly sets up the stakes with an anecdote that shows us her dad's state of mind, and kitties. She's openly frustrated. So what's my beef? Well, two things. First, the title of the podcast demented. I'm not sure that's appropriate. My thesaurus offers these alternatives for the word demented, irrational, crazy, unreasonable, frenzied, uncontrolled, manic. Is that how we should be describing people with dementia? Maybe sometimes when their behavior warns it for sure, but for a whole podcast on the subject, I don't know, it seems pejorative. My second beef is this Al eisley the dad is largely portrayed in a negative manner throughout the podcast. He loses this, he doesn't understand that. He tries to do this other thing that he shouldn't be doing. He hurts himself. It's one difficulty after another. He's defined by his dementia. That's unfair, especially when based on the times we hear him in the podcast, he seems like he might not be able to fully speak for himself. I think it's incumbent upon reporters to give a sense of the fullness of someone's life when reporting on dementia. Of course, if this was a three and a half minute public radio story, arguably there'd be little to no room to develop a character. But demented is a 5 episode podcast, the whole series runs 80 minutes. Now, to be fair to kitty, she does take a moment in the podcast to tell us her dad was a political writer. She says he wrote stories and editorials and book reviews. She even plays a little bit of taper for father being interviewed on C-SPAN. Al eisele is the editor of the hill and has been so since September 94 before that, he was the press secretary for vice president mondale. Welcome to the program. Thank you rob. What's your take? He'd come to Washington as a reporter in 1965. Then a stint in politics and policy. And from the mid 90s on he helped start and then run a political newspaper, which was a late career joy for him so much fun. Carla has a good point. The budget agreement was a monstrosity. It was full of pork barrel projects. And he read deeply and widely, and it seemed like everyone in Washington knew him and liked him. He is an honest and decent friendly guy. He loved covering government and the people who make it work. There are about half a dozen Senate races that are too close to call, and that will decide control of the Senate. Obviously, Minnesota now has to be so it's really easy to find tape of him on C-SPAN. As a reminder of his talent and his humor and frankly, how different he is now. That's it. We don't get to know her dad much at all. What childhood memories does she have of her dad? Who was he as a father, as a husband, a friend? How did her parents meet, where were the trying times in his life, and the moments of joy? What about his funny habits? Maybe there were stories he told too many times. Did he ever give advice that has stayed with kitty? I mean, I guess I have too many questions, but let me put it this other way. What is he losing as the dementia progresses and what is kitty losing? Or gaining for that matter? Maybe there's some new aspect of their relationship that has developed that came as a complete surprise. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm utterly sympathetic to kitty's predicament. It's difficult to rise above the daily challenges to see the bright spots. She captures that well, but it's one note. Fortunately, she interviews several different people with expertise with dementia, caretakers and a hospital chaplain. They offer sound advice and counsel to kitty and by extension to listeners. And that's valuable. I just wish I got to know Al better. And what it's meant to be his daughter throughout the years, not just the end. Okay. One last one. Big change in subject here. A Laurel for weirdness. And that's not the name of the podcast. What I mean is I've grown weary of formulaic podcasts, so many are like coloring by numbers. They're predictable and they're uninteresting. So when I hear something that breaks format, my ears perk up, like they did for the skewer. Oh my God. The rescue operation is underway after taking Roosevelt and I did with a pantomime horse, the Dublin says those herds will be given free treatment. The health secretary confirmed that NHS star in England must be killed by April next year. Man does not wear a mask. Dominic right. That's right. The defense secretary Ben Wallace will today lead guilty to abusing at least 99 Olympics belonging to a neighbor. Believe it or not, the skewer is produced by the BBC. Doesn't sound like it does it. The BBC can get experimental, but they didn't know they went this far. This is definitely a headphones on podcast. Actually, you should be careful if it's too loud, you may fall dizzy. Should there be another vacancy on the Supreme Court during my presidency? My nominee will be the imperial magistrate. The imperial Manchester reached a verdict. A Russian collusion with president Trump. Innocent. That's my guy, right there. Well, we've got a news program now for selecting candidates in the future, which I think will be a very, very good progress. By the toll. After being trapped in a cave at the bracket beacons turned to people publicly as a way out. Each episode is 15 minutes long and lampoon's events in British news. On occasion, I'm not sure what's going on, not because of the production, but because the news items they skewer are very particular to England. Same with the cultural and historical references, but mostly, I can read between the lines and suss out the point they're making. Former cabinet minister resigned. The podcast has received many accolades, including three just this year from the New York festivals for comedy, sound art and innovation. Tony chern's side is the sound engineer, John Holmes is the producer. Holmes is a comedian, and he's worked on comedy broadcasts for the BBC since the late 90s. In fact, the skewer is categorized as comedy, but I wonder if social commentary would be more accurate. Today is the first day of the famous harrod sale where people can get their most amazing bargains across the store. The biggest shopping days of the year. The big sell today, we wake up 5 o'clock a morning to get up to come a little bit, get the good deal. Lot of homes of and maybe some of that some more good deals for me. He didn't look at the price when he picked up. So we'll see on the receive when we get home. I've heard of like massive sales and stuff and we've seen those people come out of bags for next and we've been queuing up here. London, arguably the capital city of the world. Everyone's going shopping. Everything's like until you take double the money and get more things and the other thing..

"But i think it's fair to say that spending time at versailles negotiating with france is a little bit different than spending time on the battlefield so there was definitely a intellectual emotional divide between jefferson. Some of the other secretaries and washington did know him. They had served together in the continental congress and then they had exchanged correspondence while jefferson was governor virginia and had continued that correspondence after the war. But you're right. There was not that same closeness. They were always very respectful in their letters to another but it wasn't as warm as the others. It's hard to say if that really influence things all that much except that. I do think that jefferson had a sense that hamilton always sort of had the inside edge with washington. He never said as much in his letters but perhaps that was a reflection of that. Different dynamic in their relationship thing is we usually think of the vice. President is a member of the cabinet. But when you're standing. As john adams never attended any of these meetings that's cracked so the vice president did actually become really an official member of the cabinet until the nineteen thirties. And the vice president didn't actually become an office really worth anything until i president mondale and i would actually argue that. The real modern vice starts with dick cheney so john adams was in the unfortunate position of being completely useless which he despised and he tried really hard to help the senate which often meant that. He spent hours lecturing the senate. Which as you can imagine. The senators do not particularly appreciate but he was very much kept out of the administration kept out of the cabinet. He never attended a single cabinet. Meeting there are two you schools of thought as to why washington never included him. The first is that as president of the senate in his capacity as vice-president adams actually played a pretty active role. He was there every day today. Senators will sort of take turns presiding over the proceedings and at that point to the vice president presided over all the proceedings. So there's one argument that suggests that maybe washington was concerned about separation of powers and wanted to keep the vice president's separate from the executive branch. I find that less compelling than the school of thought that argues that washington adams. Weren't that close either. They were respectful of one another. But adams had been critical of washington's choices during the war in washington knew it and had a pretty thin skin and adams was a little bit resentful. That washington was so much more famous and so much more beloved than he was and then adams in his first year as vice president had made some poor political choices. He had advocated for a very ostentatious title for the president which had been an unpopular choice. And maybe he had squandered some of his political goodwill and so. I think that it's more likely that washington just didn't really trust his political judgment and so deed in include him. But of course again these are these are answers that we don't really have with complete satisfaction because washington did never write down. Why he decided.

Walter Mondale, Former Vice President Has Died

"Former vice president Walter Mondale has died. Despite a long liberal political career. This may be one of Walter Mondale's most remembered lines. When I hear your new ideas, I'm reminded of that ad. Where's the beef? Yeah, Vice President Mondale, running for president in the primaries and suffering a landslide lost to Ronald Reagan. He served his Minnesota senator. Through it all. He was proud to wear the liberal label. It became a word that had a sting to it, whereas people started coming self progressive. I think the same thing Walter Mondale, the nation's longest retired vice president, for more than 30
