With ‘The Underground Railroad,’ Barry Jenkins looks squarely at Black trauma
"Underground railroad was a network of abolitionists routes to free slaves. But what if it was an actual railroad with a train chugging toward freedom? That's the premise of Colson Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, now adapted by Barry Jenkins into a 10 episode miniseries. This isn't a straightforward, inspirational narrative like Harriet. This combines the brutality of roots with the social commentary of watchman and a hint of magical realism like the Polaroids. Press to some ADO is empathetic as the lead Joe Edger tennis sinister as the villain, slave catcher and child star chased Dillon is his precocious psychic. I still have eight episodes to go. But judging by the first two were in for a powerful train ride by a master conductor. I'm Toby Toby film critic Jason Fraley, giving the underground railroad for five stars. So far, dolphin
Interview With Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Ronan Farrow
"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions

"pulitzer prize" Discussed on Asian, Not Asian
"You feel like there's a way to reach those people because i feel there's gotta be a way you know while you're asking for hope. I'm not good comedian. Like i. I don't think i was surprised to see the flag there because i'd had a very active facebook page in the fall of two thousand twenty with like ninety three thousand people following it and a lot of them were beaten me and i got into so many fights with Really needs and beating means american trump supporters yup And so i already knew that. There was a very strong support for for trump in in vietnam and here in the united states. And they're they're very They're very angry very angry. And they're they're very prone to using you know violent foul language and so of course. It was a disappointment to sue the vietnamese flag lying there but not a surprise and i think that that. Can you know there are a whole bunch of plants lying there. A lot of american flags a lot of you know confederate flags and lot of like flags who symbols. I didn't really understand what which apparently you know. Signs of white supremacy and then there are a lot of other countries lives there too so the vietnamese were not the only non white people there. But i think we like the largest contingent as far as i could. Maybe i'm just looking at the right. Facebook feeds where maybe van loads of vietnamese people are. Very proud and happy win flag. And there's a lot of reasons for that. I think the vietnamese american community was was caught up in trump berber. Just like fifty percent of the country was kind of in all the various noodles that we know about. And that's compounded by lee at least two things one is that You know trump support is sort of inevitably tied up with racism and white supremacy and anti blackness and Unfortunately i think there's a lot of of racists and the vietnamese american community. that's what i heard growing up. You know yep still hear it and oftentimes said beaten amis rather than english right less. It's out there. And then the last thing is that the i think a lot of vietnamese americans who are refugees are deeply patriotic about south vietnam. That's why they wear the military uniforms. That's why they they sing. The national anthem wave the the yellow flag. All the means events. there's a lot of nostalgia for that loss country and the that that war. Which has i think a little similarity to how some americans feel a lot of nostalgia for the confederacy and feel like they. They lost Adjust 'cause and why they can still wave the confederate flag and so there's that to that sense of A sense of of of of defeat and anger and pride and desire to take things back right right. Damn dude do we do. How what do you think. Are we almost done here. Yeah i think we're done. We were supposed to funny game. And then mike brought up over the sad thing at the end so.
Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author, Scientist, and Renowned Polymath Jared Diamond Discusses the Derisive Term 'Finlandization'
"Is the first country that you discuss in the book. Outsiders uses derisive term called finlandisation to describe the nation's relationship with the soviet union. Now russia you confess to being a little bit guilty of this yourself during. I think it was one of your earlier first visits to that country. Why defense take offense at the term finlandisation. And what is it. That non-finn seem to misunderstand. Sure finlandisation is a a nasty word. It's a blaming word that non-finns particularly germans and other europeans and americans applied to finland after world war tooth in world war. Two finland got attacked by the soviet union whose population is about forty times that of finland. The finns fought fiercely. Lots of them got killed. But finland managed to retain its independence but finns learned a lesson from the war against russia. Which is. let's make sure we're not going to get into that mess again. And what we'll do is. We'll talk constantly with the russians at every level from the president downwards so that the russians are not suspicious of us. will they'll know what we're thinking The russians will know that the anoc can be surprised by making an alliance with some other country attacking finland by the back door. Finland's learned learned and they were very careful not to offend the soviet union when the soviet union vade hungry. The finns kept their mouth shot. Okay germans and american set that is that's a lack of courage should speak out against the soviet invasion of hungary and finish. His response was if we speak out. That's gonna have no effect on the soviet union but we learned that we cannot offend the soviet union. Because hundred thousand dollars got killed from making that mistake. That's finlandisation namely a small country being very careful about large country when i first went to finland. I'm embarrassed to say that that one my my best friend in finland who was a veteran of the winter war. I told him so. Why being so careful about russia because if you get into trouble the united states and britain france will protect you. Oh god there's nothing worse i could say. Because the finns had been deserted by all their allies and the finns learned that awesome viable is going to depend upon ourselves. That's finlandisation it worked finland. It's not gonna work for the united states and so there was a sense that they couldn't afford to be brave and speak out against the soviet union as much as others would have liked because they were realistic and they knew that no one else may come to our aid. If we do. Why do we want to get one. Hundred thousand people killed again. Eighty thousand about children driven into exile. No big and be. We're not gonna be stupid again. We can be careful. We will talk constantly with the russians will remain a liberal. Democracy will remain a rich country investing heavily in education. All the we're going to do differently is we're going to talk constantly with the russians. So that they will trust arson and interestingly the united states after the fall of the soviet union sadly in the nineteen nineties while the soviet union was there in a big threat. The united states was talking constantly with the soviet union but with the fall of the soviet union we began to take russia less

David Price on Colonel John Haslet's World
"David price. Thank you for joining me on the american revolution. Podcast thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. you're here today. Because britain a new book. About colonel john hazlet. What prompted you to write a book about john has let at. How important is he to the story of the american revolution. Well the genesis of this book. Mike was my first literary effort rescuing the revolution on sung patriot. Heroes in their ten. Crucial days are america's war for independence. John has was one of several individuals who i profiled in that book in a series of graphical vignettes which focused primarily on the contributions that each of these people need to patriot caused during what was perhaps the ten most inspirational days in american history. And perhaps the most pivotal moment in the war for independence. Now why did i choose hizbullah. Well you know. His name kept popping up in various things that i was reading most especially in a hackett fischer's pulitzer prize winning work. Washington's crossing which is the bible for people like me who are historical interpreters or so case graphs historical interpreters. I washington crossing historic park. That's a joke. By the way you have to read that book and you have to have a decent command. Say the material in order to be able to give a tour there under the auspices of a fringe group. So the more read about him. The more i was impressed by what he did. And and the kind of character he displayed in the course of his revolutionary service. So around the time that. I was reading that book and i guess the germ if you will of the seed when he's right. Metaphor here have been planted. The perhaps do something a little more elaborate on has land. And i came across the book by fred walters. John has led a useful one. Which far as i know. That was the only book that about him. It's a self published work came out. I believe in two thousand and five. Mary engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely. But it's written in the form largely not entirely but largely in the form of a historical novel. There's a good deal of well. Frankly fictional material an air imaginary dialogue scenes useful information to improve to be very helpful to me my initial reaction after reading. That was well. Fred has the subject covered pretty well. And i don't need to pursue curl has let any further the more i thought about it. The more i felt it deserved an effort by someone to craft more conventional kind of a non fiction work about curl and his delaware regiment now. I should add parenthetically that since his first book. Fred walters did polish. What i gather is a more conventional work and non fiction account. Biography of the kernel which i believe is entitled. John has lots eric journey. But it was published exclusively in a kindle edition. I decided to go ahead and pursue this idea of trying to write a book. Hamlet just to see you know when i was starting out i was just with the mindset of well. Let's see how this goes and what looks like and it wasn't challenge to produce something. That is a book length. Because as i pointed out in the preface to the book. There's not a lot known about his pre-revolutionary war life. We don't even know exactly when it was born is a someone about whom an agent is to in the preface or introduction. We don't even know exactly what he looks like. Physical descriptions of him but there's no authentic rep visual representation of inviting eighteen artists. Not by anyone. Who was alive when he was only two images that. I'm aware which i discussed under book. Which is the coverage. The stanley arthurs painting a reversal of the image of has lead in the stanley arthurs painting that hangs in the delaware public archives building. But in any case i could push ahead with the project so ultimately when it became was an effort to inter we three things one is the has the biography. One is the story of his seventeen seventy six regimen the first incarnation of delaware regimen with a little bit about the proposed hasler regimen is the reconstituted regimen in non truncated form that was created in seventeen seventy seven after his death and then a last name of courses or general one. It's quitting this whole context of the seventeen seventy six campaign. washington's army the new york and the campaign. Which of course culminates in what we call the ten crucial days campaign from december twenty fifth. Seventeen seventy six through january. Seventeen seventy seven. When has what has killed about princeton. The other thing. I think that was pushing me to do. This was at some point. When i was writing the second book it occurred needed. It would be a neat idea. If i could do a trilogy on the ten crucial days. I'm not aware that any other offer done. So what distinguishes has led from anyone else in terms of his contribution to the patriot. Cause well he created one of the elite regiments and continental army in seventeen. Seventy six as i believe the largest regiment in the army in the early months of that year they started recruiting january by me erupt. Almost eight hundred men. They were full uniformed. And i think they were. Perhaps the only regimen in the army that could make claimed for uniform to fully armed under has let's to of his agitate thomas holland formerly of his britannic majesty's army day molded these this forced into a efficient elite fighting unit. Bouffe or get too much into the details of the door blues. I wanna ask one thing you said. We don't know much about hamlet's prewar life. We do that. He came from northern ireland right and that he settled in kent county delaware. Do we have any information about why he left ireland and why he settled in delaware. Well he may have had personal indoor political reasons leaving ulster when he did his wife died his first wife got about five years before he came to the colonies which he did in seventeen fifty seven or thereabouts. Minor standing as they may have personal issues between him and members of the congregation. Her guests may have had an emotional toll on him. Such that believe she dialed probably died in childbirth so he was left with a young daughter. This may have taken a toll on him and as such impacted his ability to perform his ministerial duties. And that may lead to some ancient. Shall we say between young minister and members of his parish more generally when he came to the colonies. it was in the context of this larger immigration movement. If you will of the scotch-irish from northern ireland to the new world during the early and mid eighteenth century with was because of the harsh economic into the adverse economic conditions under which many of them live in the restrictions rather onerous restrictions have been imposed on him by british policy towards ireland towards the presbyterian church that was regarded as unwelcome adversary adversaries. You will to the established anglican church. So i think there's a plausible logger be made. That was part of. let's motivation. Maybe dominant part of his motivation.
Robin Givhan on the US Capitol Siege and Vogues Kamala Harris Cover
"To better understand the gravity of the political moment in washington. Dc and how evoke cover became a flashpoint amidst the us political crisis. I spoke to robin kvant. The pulitzer prize winning writer. Who is the senior critic at large writing about politics race and the arts for the washington post and whose own column on the topic was headlined. Vogue got to familiar too fast. I i asked her about the mood. In washington dc. Right now and how it feels. As an american seeing american democracy under threat i start with just A deep sigh. Because i think that for most people. There's just an element of just. There are no words to really express what we're witnessing and you know it's been for a for a significant part of the country. The last four years have been an exhausting emotional emotionally draining time and You know and then add in a pandemic and than to see this. It's just extraordinarily disheartening. And and shocking. And i would also just say i i think there's also an aspect of Sort of sad inevitability Would have seemed like this was predictable and yet we were incapable of south it. Yeah i agree. Everyone kind of you could see this coming with the rhetoric and that president trump has been Spewing out over the last four years using social media as a kind of bullhorn to broadcast this kind of you know hatred and divisive rhetoric. That's from our perspective. Over here in london and i know people other part in other parts of the world you know. We always look to america as his beacon of democracy and to see you know a country that we admire and look up to so much going through this. It's you know we find it. Refined it heartbreaking and really sad as well but you know that point around inevitability. I couldn't agree with you more Later today you know. it's wednesday were recording this It seems as though president trump will be impeached by the house of representatives. What do you think this will signify in this crisis that america's going through right now this political crisis. I think that's a really good question. I i'm not sure You know. I think we've gotten to a point what in at at which every time there's been a sense of okay this is you know the nature like it has to sort of shift at this point shift where the batter And we've kind of been proven wrong so You know an a president who has been. We'll have been impeached twice as a pretty extraordinary thing. But i think we have really clear evidence from last week that there's a certain percentage of the population who will be undeterred and he will be even more exercise and ultimately a it will it has has starting to cease to be about president trump and he has just bad. A you know the the key. That's unlocked this avalanche of darkness. Really because a lot of the the rhetoric that was being spewed out there at the capitol was related to trump fights. You know there were a list of grievances that people had that really had nothing to do with. He was in the white house I think it's bad you know. They've just sort of been given permission to express their grievances in this really violent way. But i do hope that You know i'm wrong and that The vote will will mean something and will mean something that will shift things for the better. I guess some people's perspective could be that this process that congress is going through over the next few days Will be the end of a very dark chapter in. Us history and we have a new administration Starting on january twentieth that seems poised to kind of address some of the critical issues that have surfaced during the current administration's tenure but others are worried. Maybe like you that. Actually this isn't the end of the chapter. It's just opening up and has highlighted that have seventy four million people voted for donald trump. There's at least a portion of those people represented by the groups that showed up at the capital last week. That have been kind of in a way activated by trump. And you know there's you know ten potentially tens of millions of these people depending on which you know opinion. Polls you believe what do you. What do you think of that. I get is the end of a particular chapter. What the next chapter will look like however I is is the question. And i don't think that You know on on january twenty at twelve a one pm you know the sun is magically going to come out and everything's going to be washed away. I think it's going. We're going to have a lot of really difficult difficult work to do. And i think there's going to be a lot of sort of weeding out of some of these pheno terrible elements in our culture and. I don't think that we can really do that until we sort of. Reckon with our history you know for so much of the the rhetoric that's coming from the people who were you know the mob that writing at the capital so much of it to my mind seems to be kind of rooted in american history Of that deals with race and gender issues And what exactly you know freedom and equality need that have never really that we really never really come to terms with and i don't think that we can really move forward productively until we do come to terms of died and you know a lot of people you know the first thing that They will say when people try to go and examine history on and understand what it means for. The president is bat either. Don't wanna go back there. They don't wanna revisit it. They don't want to have that conversation or they simply want to serve you at through these rose colored lenses and sort of glorify it And ignore the the worst
The Symbolism Behind The Architecture Of Washington, DC's Capitol Building
"The U. S. Capitol is the most identifiable building in America. It was designed to be at the top of the hill. It can be seen from nearly any spot in Washington to talk more about the symbolism of this singular building, and these attacks were joined by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Philip Kennecott. He's a senior art and architecture critic at the Washington Post. Welcome. Thanks for having me You write often about the meaning and function of public spaces in America. What was your sense of the space? You know, this building is visible all throughout Washington. It's at the geometric center of the city. It's where the basic grid of streets is measured from and it sits at one of the highest points in the city. So you see it. And you know, a lot of American cities don't have a recognizable skyline. But Washington does. And the most iconic thing on that skyline is the capital with its dome. If it's not quite the most beautiful classical architecture, it's maybe a bit of a hodgepodge. It still is beloved, despite some of it's kind of charming, homely flaws. Tell me what it's like to be inside the building under normal circumstances for people who may not have been there. What is that physical space? Like? What does it sound like? Traditionally the capital's been a pretty open space. You could come to town, see the monuments and go visit your representative. And so we were in it. There's this wonderful sort of buoy echoey, noisy quality. People are moving around all the time. And if that's the aural sense of it visually, that hodgepodge of architecture is even more kind of compelling on the inside of it was built over decades and centuries and inside. You really see that from the changes in just the way the building is laid out the size of the rooms and the the decoration style. What do you make of the profane nature of these attacks? These were Americans, vigilante mobs attacking their own history. Their house. In fact, we heard them repeatedly say this was their house. There are reports people defecated in the quarters. Yeah. You know when you say some things are there some things mine. Part of that is care for the thing. Part of that is stewardship. It's not just that if it's mine, I could do whatever I want with it, And that was the kind of claim of possession that I found so appalling, so sickening in what was going on there when they said it was ours, they basically said, it's ours to destroy. Daughters to preserve not ours to pass down, not ours, to imbue with meeting and symbol in value and worth ours to do with as we wish I find it repellent. This is not only shocked America in the world because of what they did. But you know, many people feel that this building is really important. It is hurt their hearts. Why do you think that is I think it's because we take it seriously for what it does. You know, it's a monument or memorial is basically something you go and you were trained to have a set of thoughts and you try and think about the thing that's memorialized there. But this is a building that functions it daily in acts what we Do in a democracy. And so it's when you attack it. You're not just attacking a simple you're attacking the function of the process of democracy. You know, I was really struck by a story that came out after after Congress voted tow certify the election and after that terrible day on Wednesday when the crowds poured through there One of the representatives, Young guy name and Kim. I think it was, you know, After all of this, he grabbed a trash bag and started collecting trash. Just cleaning up the space and Maybe that seems a little hokey. But if you live in Washington, you really do feel kind of proprietary sense because these buildings are always there. And because they're so big and the city is so low, you always being watched by them, you know, In a sense they cast the kind of protective embrace and to see them to filed is just particularly disturbing. You are someone who thinks about buildings and their meaning. And I'm wondering after this attack has the meaning of the building changed. No, I don't think so. I think the history has gotten longer at a very ugly chapter has been added, and I hope we always remember that chapter and maybe we need a plaque. Maybe we need something that says through this particular door came these people on the state so that we have that memory and so that they can't be allowed to change. The appalling nature of what they did by slowly saying over time. Well, it wasn't really is bad as it seems, it wasn't really insurrection. It was just a little bit of a mob or maybe just a bit of a riot or a bit of bad behavior. We can't let that become the

"David Farren whole as a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist For The Washington Post he won. The bolts are Because of his really painstaking thorough reporting on trump's foundation which turns out was kind of a scam and Has now been shut down by the state of New York so Thank you David for joining us. Hey great to be here and thank you for all the reporting you've done on on trump's finances and Just curiously let me ask you. What corrupt schemes of trump's are you currently investigating the big priority for this year is to find out how much money the federal government is paying trump's businesses? We that it is. We know that it's a lot of you know we've found four hundred seventy one thousand dollars in payments already. And but I think we've only seen tip of the iceberg mar-a-lago. This is Scotland. This is all these things right. Yeah well we've just looked at one government agency so far which is the secret service to follow him wherever he goes and then there's sort of captive customers for him. He gets the choose whatever he wants to charge them and the service can pay. Whatever it's charged so we are looking at what he charges them to come with him. Tomorrow law go to come with into Bedminster. He's an ren things at Bedminster when he's not even there So yeah I think there's more than just the secret service but that's the part that we're looking at first so this is obviously His His golf courses or resorts. Or whatever these are and The Secret Service has to stay there. for security reasons and he can pretty much was he charged him as he charged above What normal people pay? Not The normal people go to any of these well the ones we've looked at so far bedminster and mar-a-lago and they both have a few guest rooms. They're not really hotels but they have a few rooms and they don't publish the rates they don't even if you're a member you have to call and get the rate for tonight. So they don't they don't say what regular people pay The only rip. That's a great Great out right but the but the good thing for us is that last year. Eric trump president son actually gave a really definitive answer about what his Co. is is company was charging the government he says when government officials come with my father to our properties which are just you know he says I. He said it was free and then he wasn't. He's not totally free. We just charge them the cost of housekeeping. So just the cost of cleaning their rooms by the way everyone If you go to a hotel Tip Your housekeeper yes You know please. So that'd be like a ten dollar charge. A figure he gave was fifty bucks and we've talked to a sort of hotel industry experts about you. Know what does it cost? Just a cleanroom and it's like for a luxury hotel. It's like fifty to seventy bucks so that's about. I see because they pay the housekeeper scores. And you get and how many of them are are legal or well. How the ones at mar-a-lago are all They're all guests. Workers Imports guestworkers their legal. But they're not okay. Well that's good. Yeah with for him. But the thing is we haven't found a single instance and I've I've been looking for any instance at all where I can see that Eric actually did what he said where the trump were actually charged the government fifty bucks. We've found rates four hundred dollars. Five hundred and sixty dollars six hundred fifty dollars a nine man. Whoa WHOA WHOA. Whoa WHOA are you saying that Eric may have been misleading people? I don't want to prejudge it. Maybe there's some examples out there that I haven't found yet. I'm just saying that every single example that I found any history of that and your research of them be misleading. Let's go back to the first thing. Which is the that you did. Which is the trump foundation and There are some pretty hilarious stories there. You're probably better telling these than I am well just to give a couple So the trump foundation was this little charity. That trump is set up in the eighties. Donald Trump and set up in the eighties and basically it for the last. You know five or ten years before he ran for office. It had been giving away other people's money for some reason. Other people gave him money which he then gave away under the name of the Donald Trump Foundation. So people thought they were getting his money but it wasn't and the the weird thing about it one of the weird things about it was what he bought with this charities money including A couple of different very large portraits of himself So he would go to this charity auctions at mar-a-lago people would bring a painting of him. I think figuring we will. He's you know he's got to buy it would blow to him if a painting of him goes unsold in his house so he bought one painting for ten thousand dollars. You but one painting for twenty thousand dollars which scrape that's fine. There's an auction for charity. But then he used his charities money to pay for it so the foundation pays for his portrait's exactly and Basically there's no justification for that all right. No one of the basic rules about charity is it even if your name is on the charity. It's not your money. It's the charity is a separate pot of money that's meant for the public good and Foundation Foundation. Let's tax exempt. Yeah so you can't use it to buy decorations for your house. You can't use it to buy anything for yourself So we wanted to know okay. Well now that these paintings wait a minute. Wait a minute decorations. He's I know that he's hung. The portrait's have been hung at Some of the hotels maybe Ed mar-a-lago and one zero So they're all that's the G. Seven g seven exactly so they could see the portrait so yeah they had said they wouldn't tell us where it was but one of our readers founded on the wallet at Durrell Decorating The sports bar there. So that's pretty much. The definition of what? You should not do with charities. Assets wasn't wasn't barral actually doing a service which was storing it. Right that was that was the The argument with trump campaign was well. Yeah looks bad. It looks like the trump charity did a favor for the trump business by buying art for the businesses walls. But you have it all wrong really. The business is doing the charity a favor by storing its art collection for free our journalist. We gotta check these things out. It's like man. I call it a tax expert and said you know. Does this hold water could you? And the GUY said you know. It's it's not easy to make an irs auditor laugh. But this would do it. I actually had an auditor once audit me and Tom. Davis via the corporation This is the weirdest thing he was there for in my business. Manager's Office for a week I don't know why I'm telling the story but here's the thing. He sees a receipt for dinner that I had with Lorne Michaels and Paul McCartney and Tom in London and he said You had dinner with Paul McCartney and I said yes and he goes okay arts over. Isn't that funny? I was fine. It's good all right. Okay keep going. I thought that was a good story so that was one of the many things in the end. The trump the New York attorney general sued the trump foundation for that and a variety of other things. He used this charity to help his political campaign. He used it to pay off legal debts for his businesses and they sued the trump foundation. Saying that none of that stuff is what you're supposed to do with charities money and so the end. The trump foundation gets dissolved and trump had to pay two million dollar. Fine personally give an example of the legal debt that the foundation paid because he legally owed some money. And what was that about though the one case? There's a charity golf tournament at one of trump's golf courses in New York and they have this prize hit a whole hit a hole in one. When a million dollars okay. They're out there and with some whole a guy. One of the contestants from New York Hits a hole in one hour a big deal to take his picture. You know he's back in the clubhouse buying drinks that says you know these GonNa want a million dollars and they sort of tapped him on the shoulder and say actually if you read the fine print of the win a million dollars sweepstakes it says that the ball has to travel a certain number of yards before it goes in the hole for be eligible and trump's course just happened to have set it up so that the t the whole were not far enough apart that that we not exceed that limit so yes even hit the hole in one. You don't win the Homeland Prize because you hit it far enough. It was just The Pin was just far enough Close enough that you couldn't they couldn't win so food and They settled or something and the trump foundation paid for their exactly but he he sued the trump golf course because obviously the trump golf course is the one at fault and the trump golf course settled with the guy but then the trump foundation again in legal legally separate tax exempt charity with nothing to do with this Gulf hole in one thing. They trump foundation patient. Okay so this is just sleaze. Sleaze sleaze there's a couple of stories there they really like one one. You got into this because He he did this thing when He was feuding with Fox. Instead of doing the Fox debate he did this Vanderbilt zone and said he was giving like a million dollars. Sir. Several million dollars to vets right. Yeah a million dollars out of his own pocket. That's right and million dollars out of his own pocket and you just wanted to. You were curious right. We wanted to. I mean that's a claim that matters because both that shows you. Trump cares about veterans. And it shows you is really rich like those are two key parts of his appeal in two thousand sixteen so we want to just check and make sure that he did the thing that he said he did. And I thought this is like a simple story. We'll call it and they'll say yeah of course but he gave this money to this charity. You can call them in check but of course it was not like that. Instead we got was a call from Corey. Lewandowski was trump's campaign manager. Then great guy. Great thank you. I'm sort of set me off on on this path by telling me. Susie lied to wonder wonderfully life-changing line. And so he said well. I can tell you for sure that Donald Trump is giving away that million dollars to veterans. But I can't tell you who he gave it to our win..

"Okay. And the. Pulitzer prize winning that. How does that change your life? What is what is that? What's it feel like what's the process, actually? Is it something that you submit for consideration or is it something that's found by them? I I'm sure it's all on their website, but it'd be nice for people to understand. It's a submission thing, and I have to say, I we were so lucky the journal sentinel had won a Pulitzer prize the year before, and we were so lucky that they had really built up a, a team of people who, who knew what it took to do the application and to do the, the right kind of story that the year that we won. We had a lot of digital components to our story. And we told it in a lot of different ways online, you know, Mark, and I worked very closely with there were five of us who want and, you know, the other three did a lot of the video and photography, and such a big team on those well and that year they had added to the. Rules, kind of. Not a category. But a, a suggestion that you try and tell the story in unique ways and use digital and, and we really did that well, so I think that helped us so you, you really have to have a can't credit, the management, George Stanley, the editor of journal sentinel, and all of the people who work with him on this. You have to have that kind of team to, to turn. We had a really good story that we, you know, we Mark, and I said, from the beginning, if, if, if we can't take this story somewhere, it's our fault because all the elements were there, but then we needed that team around us to take it to the next level to be cliche. Did you ever worry about whether you'd be able to get it there, Mark? And I realized very early on that the story had that potential and we made a pact not to talk about it. And so we just did not talk about it. So it was actually funny. What happens is. We knew that they submitted it for the Pulitzer. And we we just talk about it, and so someone in we agreed. We tell each other when we heard anything. So one of the other reporters came up to me they get announced in April in one of the other reporters came up to me, I don't maybe in March and said, so how you feeling you know heard you're on the shortlist was, like, what are you talking about? He's like you know what I'm talking about. I don't know what you're talking about. We're not talking about it, and he told me that there were rumors in the industry that, you know, we were. In the top kind of stories that were being considered in our category. And I went told Mark and I like she, we had an agreement that we tell each other. And he was kinda mad at me because we just didn't wanna talk about it. So then the, the day they were announced, you know, we knew that we had a shot, and I walked in that morning and I had an interview to do, but I saw I, so I did my interview, and it was driving Mark crazy. I mean he couldn't even sit there any longer and he I got off my injuries like let's get out here. And so we just laughed and we went, we actually went to a used bookstore downtown and looked at DNA books, so marred mired in it at that point. And then we went and had lunch and already writing the book at the palm, we had, we had an agent at that point. I think, but we, we had contract with the agent, but we hadn't won the Pulitzer. The giant was pretty happy after it happened. But. We came walking back into the building. And we saw a local TV reporter sitting in the lobby, and then we were really nervous than we thought all something. But what you're fables are turned. Well, yeah, and I hate to even admit this. But what you're really nervous about is that you're going to be a finalist. You know, and that 'cause they have a tradition in the journal sentinel newsroom. You have to stand up in front of the whole news room, and everybody watches for it to come across the wire, and, you know what you don't want is to be standing there and here you're finalist, and you have to act happy and you are happy, but, you know, you're hoping you win. So so draft day, almost. Yeah. Right. So we, it was funny. We walked back into the newsroom and Raquel Rutledge who had won the Pulitzer fabulous reporter who won the Pulitzer the year before. Kind of called us over, and she pulled up Brown bag out of her desk drawer with some kind of alcohol bottle of alcohol in it and said here, take a drink and then go up there. Switch shot. And we went walking up there. And what would you say your member? I don't even remember. I mean you know, then we won and. You know, it was just a blur. It ended up it. We, it was such a blur in, you're, you're just walking around the newsroom and slowly everyone's getting back to do in. There's champagne and everyone's getting back to doing the work. They have to do that day. And you're just kind of walking around, like I don't even know what to do. And because it's like winning the Oscar. Right. I mean in. I don't know. I never won the Oscar. Okay. Okay, magin that you want the Oscar for bridges of Madison. Laugh at someone someone got in touch with me, sometimes it, what happens to your ear, inbox your emails, flooded. Your we ended up like the New York Times called us and we didn't see it and we didn't call him back. I mean it was just chaos. But someone after that day called me up and said like, okay, you know you won the Nobel, but you still don't know. And I said, I said, well, I didn't win the Nobel. I won the Pulitzer and he said, Nobel poets are. What's the difference? I'm mad at you. So a lot of ways. So what happens is after you win. There is a like an award ceremony at the law library at Columbia college in New York. And there were a couple interesting things about that. But to me, the most interesting, you walk in, you know all the editors go with you, and you walk in, and they're all these steps you walk up, and then there's this grand lobby and you walk over new when you win. You get like a little Tiffany kind of paperweight, that's engraved with, you know, your information and even more valuable to me. You get a book of all the previous Pulitzer winners that was. I thought really neat. But as I was walking across this long, large fancy lobby, I realized this isn't even about us. It was a first of all, you realize it's not it's it was about Milwaukee, and it was about Wisconsin. You know, everybody shared with us, winning the pulsar. So you kind of realized that, that, it's, it's not just yours, it's ever, but then walking cross this lobby, I realized it's a lunch. It's not a very fancy ceremony and it's, it's about the editors you realize these editors show up hopefully often, and they're showing off their latest reporters. Right. And so they all know each other and you don't know anybody 'cause you've never been there before the only ones they continue to go all the time. It's their sort of. Yeah. It's their thing like this is, you know, they're the ones who like they're bringing their latest winners. So and, you know, the big lake Wall Street Journal was like up in front. New York Times it's the whole that also placement another. So we so there's a little reception and then there's a launch, and, you know, Mark, and I stood and, and the rest of our team. But Mark, and I happened to Stanton. Whether we're pretty tied at the hip at that point. And. Who are you gonna talk to all the editors are talking to each other? And so we ended up talking to the poet who won that year and the nonfiction. I remember this book the history of cancer book, I'm blanking on the name of it. I'll think anyway, can't come up with it. It's a great book. We both brought books and got him sign it. But we ended up kind of just standing and talking to them because you don't know anybody. So it was really interesting from that in, and it was funny. I walked up to there's a, a high up editor at the Wall Street Journal, who's from Green Bay, where I'm from his name's Paul zhigo. And sure, yeah, I saw him over at the Wall Street Journal table. I went to high school with his sister. So I walked up, thinking, oh to say hi to him. And I walked up to the table, and they all looked up at me. Like, what are you doing over at our table? Right. 'cause they're the Wall Street Journal. And I said, oh, Well, Paul, I just want to say hi went ice school, Julie. And then he stood up. He was real nice. But it was really funny walking to the table. So you said when we were first getting started that you always wanted to do something. Big was this. It. Well that it was maybe one of it. Yeah. Okay. So now, you know, I've left the turtle sentinel, and I'm running them walkie institute, which is a nonprofit started in two thousand seven by John burns who ran the private equity group, ebonite Bank, and then spun it out into Mason wells, which has been very successful private equity firm rusher. It's the biggest in Wisconsin, and, you know, I've known John for longtime actually will tell you a secret that won't be a secret anymore once tell to you, but John was the person who gave me my Pulitzer tip. So he's and delare in my John. Yeah. Right. He was on the board of the Medical College. And the what the reason we were talking that day he was, you know, kind of berating me about all the great things going on there. And, you know, and I just wasn't sure if he slipped and told me something he wasn't supposed to or he was trying to tell it to me, but it doesn't matter turned out. Yeah. So can I ask just before? Before we get more into the mock institute. So you. You win. You Mark win. You're right, the book, you're sort of, at the top of can I say something? Yeah. That book that I was trying to remember, the name of, oh, yes. The emperor of all maladies. There you go. Get it on Amazon. But the one you really wanna buy one in a billion. Yes. Of course. The story of knickebocker Don McMahon. That's also on him. Exactly. The so you're sort of at the top. Whether you still about Oscar whatever Pulitzer Nobel. And that. Yeah. Six one. And then and then you leave journalism. Yeah. How come? Well, the journal sentinel was a fabulous place and still is in some ways, but we got bought by going at, and I just have to tell you that the day they all walked into, you know, I was a business reporter. I mean, I covered this stuff all the time, like I talked to a lot of CEO's about walking into a company and what you do when the day they walked into the newsroom, I just thought is a work for me. And it was partly because, you know, they're not real focused on business news. The kind of business news. I like they're focused on maybe a softer type of business news than I like so I, you know, I mean I that's not to say the journal sentinel, isn't still doing some good business news. But I just felt like I was going to be frustrated there. And John had started the Milwaukee institute in two thousand seven. He started it as a he had a cluster of cloud. As it were. And they were doing high-performance computing and offering services helping companies in academics around.

We have people around the world even if there happened to be of a different nationality country. Oh, absolutely. But also many people don't realize this, but we actually had a depopulation order that was concocted by Kissinger and Nixon. And so we are actually people color, especially in danger of being depopulated here in this country as well as in other countries. And I know it feels really shocking, but they can research this evil can be brilliant though. Speaking of depopulation. Of people. It will find a way we are not fools completely to be seduced by it. For Nixon Carter Reagan, perhaps all the others knew we were counting on them to be as human as we are, but why eight hundred thousand Rwandans died while we watched a televised presidential sex scandal might have told us something that politicians who smiled at us and kissed our babies, blue eyes shining with triumph.

It's a terrible history and until we face it, we can go nowhere. We can expect to grow. You have a Pulitzer prize. Kendrick, Lamar is a young musician. First rapper to win a Pulitzer prize ever this past year, and I want to play for you something from one of his songs and a video that echoes your work. Take a look. Chips like. Humming. If God got us, we're going to be all right. Have you have you heard him quote you before the now? You've never seen that now and he's big. He's not Alice Walker big, but he's big, I'm happy for him. What do you think about the way he's using your work? All's my life I had to fight well, I think he's understanding that is the truth of it, especially for poor people and for people who call her in this country, we've had to fight all of our lives and it's a good thing that we can talk to each other across generations prizes are a funny thing. I don't imagine you focus on them, but there are people who criticize the Nobel Pulitzer for handing them out to musicians. Do you think it should only go to traditional novelists and poets or musicians as well? I, I'm not crazy about prizes. No, so whoever wants them should have them and people who could do without them should do without them. Did it change your status because there's your work that stands on its own, and then there's the. Reach of your work. And so I wonder whether the prize is in the prestige that you've amassed did make a difference in the reach. I mean, we talk about the color purple to think that there was too talented people who happen to be black women, Oprah and Whoopi who'd never been cast in a film before they adapted your film. Does that part of it matter to you? That did. That was very good. And I was very happy about that. But I'm just saying that the real joy comes from doing the work in hasn't really come from the prize. That's something I think that's inspiring about you. And it comes through very much sitting across the table from you. It is obvious to observe, but I will observe it that that's something that you and the president do not have in common. He tends to brag a lot, but he does claim to be smart and educated. This is the only quoting of the president we're going to do, but I'll play you one clip of President Trump..

We've had to fight all of our lives and it's a good thing that we can talk to each other cross generations prizes are funny thing. I don't imagine you focus on them, but there are people who criticize Nobel Pulitzer for handing them out to musicians. Do you think it should only go to traditional novelists and poets or musicians as well? I, I'm not crazy about prizes, you know? So whoever wants them should have them and people who could do without them should do without them. And we talk about the color purple to think that there was too talented people who happen to be black women, Oprah and Whoopi who'd never been cast film before they adapted your film.

It is obvious to observe, but I will observe it that that's something that you and the president do not have in common. He tends to brag a lot, but he does claim to be smart and educated. This is the only quoting of the president we're gonna do play you. One clip of President Trump. I went to an Ivy league school. I'm very highly educated. I know words I had the best. Words, what does it tell you that it's important to him to be perceived as so smart. It tells me that he knows he probably is not, and he has an inferiority complex and that's very sad, but it's even sadder that we elected him to lead. We definitely need a very different kind of leader. And in fact, we actually need to lead ourselves and until we do, we probably won't get very far. You're saying fury already. I mean, there's a feeling of inferiority or lack of self. Affirmation love. Does that in your view, make people more more dangerous when they come in contact with power money? Yes, because there's always in the, there's always the feeling of need to measure up, you know? And I mean, even see that between him and Barack Obama, I think n. b. there was just so blatant that Donald Trump envied Iraq Obama his even though he started out with much more than Barack, oh, of course. That's part of the problem that he had everything in Barack as a black man was supposed to have nothing and said, look, what happened is all of the things that this. Isn't isn't in this very hard to take. But the answer is not to make us all suffer is to go and improve yourself. Alice Walker for me, it's an honor to have you here, so I really appreciate you coming by. Thank you. Thank you. Hey, it's Chris from MSNBC every day. I come to the office and we make television show every day. I think to myself, there's so much more I want to talk about. And so this is our podcast it's called, why is this happening?
