"I marry Louise Kelly. And I'm one of summers. The free expression group pan America reports more library books have been banned in Texas than any other state. In a rare lawsuit on the matter, a group of angry library patrons in one small Texas town has gone to court over book removals, NPR's John Burnett has more. A year ago, the government of lano county, about an hour northwest of Austin, started pulling books that found objectionable from its three public libraries. By the time the purge was over, 17 titles were gone, including Maurice Sendak's award winning in the night kitchen. Ray Bradbury once said there's more than one way to burn a book and the world is full of people running around with matches. Do you feel like that's going on Atlanta county? Yeah, it's a scary time when people are trying to get rid of books from public institutions. Leela green little is the lead plaintiff and a federal lawsuit against lano county that contends the government can not dictate which books patrons can and can not read. It all began with three children's books, my butt is so noisy. I broke my butt and I need a new butt because the books contained illustrations of bare bottoms, a handful of outrage citizens in lano called them quote pornographic filth. The author, Don McMillan, emailed NPR from her home in New Zealand, I wrote the butt books for fun with no intention to offend anyone and with no agenda of any kind, their silly stories bringing laughs while getting kids especially boys into reading. One of the co plaintiffs is Genie prier, a 76 year old retired clerical worker who votes for Republican. I just think it's censorship. Pure and simple. Priya says she used to check out kids books to read to her grandchildren, and she was curious why the new banned books were considered so offensive. Because I wanted to say what was so bad about them. And frankly, I couldn't find anything. The butt books and the farting books. I mean, it's a fact of life. Kids find it funny. None of the defendants or their attorney agreed to interviews for this story. In its reply to the lawsuit, the county contents that a public library has broad discretion to decide what material to provide to their patrons, and that the First Amendment does not apply

"Match it happens at the end of my favor. I don't know how much I want to go into this is a terrible synopsis as always. But the first miss marvel musings episode. And anyway, the kids win, done. There's one major part you forgot, which is this film for some reason loves cigars. I know it was the year. There's a lot of cigars. Well, I didn't know it was the horniness of all the people, funnily enough. I didn't know it was really any of that. I was like, they're average level horny for this kind of film. Average average level horny for a Disney kids film. Yeah. But from the 80s, the clarify, you know, the 80s, everyone was all the time. It was funny. It was any movie, even just the 80s. We were any of the sort of the manly movies, and all of them are just loads of greased up topless dudes, like who are reddits, but it is set earlier, isn't it? So arguably, yeah, I think it's 60s. I think it's based on a book which was, I think, the book was Ray Bradbury. The noted sci-fi writers. And the eels append the screenplay, but they did reject a screenplay by Stephen King, in fact. This is probably a good thing to Stephen king and screenplays is not always the best. You should just kind of vaguely, I think of Stephen King, he is just an ideas man, a bit like, you know, George Lucas or J. K. Rowling in certain ways, where it's just like, give them like 60 to 80% of a say and just let someone else just kind of fill in the tiny details or smooth things over. And you've got something brilliant. Just with Stephen King, it's basically let him write up to about the last act. And when you get into the last act, just don't use it because he can't end anything. I think I've read several of his books. And all of them. They're either okay or they just suck. The only movies I've seen the one that ends well is it part one. And that's because the book doesn't end there. That's why. So it's just all of them. I'd okay or actively bad. Called cell that was one of my oh my God, yes. Favorites for ages. I was reading I was reading it, and while I was reading it, I was like, this is amazing. It's all done really well, some very cool ideas. And then about it was about the last ten pages. Immediately, just completely ruined it. Yeah, just I find cell in the middle sort of drops off quite a bit. It does start to go a bit weird, but I like the weirdness that way that it goes. I like the idea of it, but yeah, it just messed itself up.

"51, four 51 for the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns. The movie is based on the dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury depicting a society where books are outlawed and firemen burn every book they find. It may not be as severe as burning, but there has been a dramatic escalation in the banning of books, and it seems to reflect culture war issues. Book challenges doubled from 2020 to 2021, according to the American library association. The majority of banned books focus on sexual orientation gender identity race and racism. One Texas school district is getting ready for the start of school by removing 41 books from school library shelves, including gender queer by mayako babe, one of the most challenged books of last year. My guest is Deborah Caldwell stone, director of the American library association's office for intellectual freedom. Why do you think book bands are on the rise? I think because a number of events that have come together, one is the apparent success of Glenn youngkin in his gubernatorial campaign, leveraging a parent's complaint about a school book in Virginia to apparently draw voters and win that election. But I also think that there is an organized effort to attack education broadly and that books have become part of that campaign. We're seeing groups that call themselves parents, rights groups, moms for liberty, no less turn and education, parents defending education, activate local members, local chapters, to attend school board meetings, library board meetings. And the removal of books and being very successful. The reasons for challenging books change over the years. Between 2002 1009, the Harry Potter series was frequently challenged because of allegedly promoting witchcraft and wizardry. What do the challenges now mainly focus on? What we've observed since 2015 is the majority of books challenged in schools and libraries. That's when someone demands what they be removed from the library shelf. Our books centering the lives and experiences of LGBTQIA persons. And this includes things like picture books that simply depict a family headed by a same sex couple, ranging to young adult materials, feeling with coming of age stories, romance, or nonfiction books dealing with sex education. The other trend that we're observing, and this is tied to the current campaign around critical race theory or the claim that critical race theory is being taught in K through 12 schools is a real effort to remove books reflecting the experience of African Americans or reflecting a perspective on history by African Americans who challenge some of the traditional narratives about racism and U.S. history and their experience of slavery. And so what we're seeing is a focus on removing books that challenge the traditional narrative that elevate the lives and the voices of persons who have been traditionally excluded from society, but now I've found a voice. I think we've reached a kind of consensus here in the United States. Books written for adults and intended for adult audiences rarely see challenges. It never really becomes an issue. The real dispute is about books that are available to young people. And there has been a successful effort by a number of groups who styled themselves parents, rights groups, to make this an issue about challenging their authority to raise their children when in fact the end result has been to eliminate books that speak to the experiences of others in society who do not share their moral or political views. Looking at the states, Texas had the most bands followed by Pennsylvania, Florida, and Oklahoma. Does book banning happen on both sides of the political spectrum because we mostly hear about it on what I call the conservative side. Certainly, book challenges do come from persons

"This is Bloomberg law with June brusso from Bloomberg radio. Now have any of you guys ever seen one of these bad things for real? We burned almost every physical book in the country. It was by the time you guys grow up, there won't be one book left. Burn it. Take fireman. Used to put out fires. That's a classic lie. I want to know why we burn. We are not born. We must be made equal by the fire. And then we can be happy. Fahrenheit four 51, four 51 for the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns. The movie is based on the dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury, of a society where books are outlawed and firemen burn any that can be found. It's not as severe as burning, of course, but there has been a dramatic uptick in banning books. Book bands and challenges doubled from 2020 to 2021, according to the American library association, and it seems to reflect the growing polarization in our country. Joining me is First Amendment expert Eugene valak, a professor at UCLA law school. Eugene tells about the one Supreme Court case about school libraries where the split was four four one. Well, so let's just first step back. One thing that the court said in that case. Basically all the justices agreed. That curriculum decisions, what to include in the reading materials for a class. Our basically up to the school. So the school can say we just don't think this book is suitable for a class for whatever reason. We just don't think this is the kind of book we should be studying in class. So that's one thing just to make clear. The other thing that the court actually never did is use the word ban with regard to removal of books from the library. School library. Because it's not a ban. It's a choice about which books to include and which books to exclude. And a situation where, of course, the library has to be making these choices all the time, right? First of all, it has only limited space and second, unlike a public library. It's supposed to be focusing on books that are special and interest in value to children. So the court understood that it wasn't a ban of a book. It was a choice to remove a book from the library. And the other thing that basically everybody in the accord agreed on is that if the removal was on grounds that it was not age suitable, for example, because it was pervasively vulgar, which is to say viewed by the school is pervasively vulgar, obviously people disagree on such matters. Or otherwise not age appropriate that the school would be entitled to remove. The issue in which the court split four four is whether a library once and by the way, pretty much everybody also agreed that a library can decide what books to get in the first place based on more or less whatever criteria the library wants. But the court split four four on this question of whether a library can school system can remove a book from the library because of the book's ideology. Could it say this book is unpatriotic or perhaps today it would be question is it anti gay or is it unduly pro gay or sitting aside with whether there's explicit sexual discussion there? Or whether it's racist or whether it portrays smoking in a positive light although maybe that's also a matter of age appropriateness. So in any event, that the court split on four four. How did that happen? Why four four when there were 9 justices? Well, four justices basically said the school can't discriminate based on ideology more or less in removing books. And because there's a dispute on the real reason why they discriminated based on ideology. This case should be sent back down for further fact finding on what the real reason. That was for justice. It's more or less the liberal trust. Then more or less conservative justices four of them said, school is perfectly free to discriminate based on ideal. And she may be not an extreme situations like if it's actually partisan. We won't have any books by Republican writers or any books by democratic writers. But setting aside extreme situation like that, a school is free to discriminate based on ideology. So therefore, there's no need to send the case back just to swag was the swing vote. And here's what he said. There's this factual dispute as to what the reason was, why the school removed the books. If it turns out that it removed the books because they were pervasively vulgar otherwise not age appropriate, then no institutional problem. Everybody agrees. If it turns out they did it for ideological reasons, then there might or might not be a constitutional problem. Could be that the liberal justices are right. It could be conservative justice, right? I don't have to decide it. We don't have to decide. The better route is to wait until we figure out the real reason for the removal. And then resolve this First Amendment question over that reason is a permissible reason. And that's why he agreed with liberals solely on the question of whether the case should be sent back down for further fact time. So he expressly declined to go along either with the descent's position on the substantive issue or with the liberals. I hesitate to call it a plurality explorer, often means the opinion that got the most votes. But actually got the same number of votes as the decent four, basically. So white concluded that he didn't agree with either of them because he didn't agree that this issue should even be decided. Until necessary. Coming up. So where are the laws today? This is Bloomberg. The balance of progressive snapshot can save you money based

"Today, a Spotify original from park asked. Let's begin your day. Consider this passage from Fahrenheit four 51 by Ray Bradbury. Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. The sun, the center of our solar system and your ruling planet shines in your house of travel and adventure. Let the spirit of the season remind you of how brief life can be. Fill it with adventures that pad your heart and test your agility. The farther you go, the more you do and the sharper you become. Books give us knowledge, exploration gives us experience.

"Yeah. I followed things that broke in my house and as examples. And basically, the whole point of this article is you are no longer buying hardware, even though you think you're buying. You're buying software. Yeah. And not only buying services. You're buying independent or interdependent software and services for different vendors. Yeah. And it just constantly degrades. You can not get a device that's going to consistently, if you hook it up to anything else, an update might break it. A new feature role might break it. All you never know. And so I just kind of wrote this. I didn't think it would very well. I just kind of like fine. I'm just writing this because let me say something. Natalie flights. You got picked up 11 hours ago by hacker news. 288 comments all of them pretty much agreeing with you. A lot of reinforcement. I think there's always the guys that I've never have those problems, but yeah, there's all the, you know, there's a subset of people. There's the well, this is why I never put any of this stuff in my house to begin with. There's the you would never have this problem if you installed open-source. Whatever professional installer or whatever. And then there's the people who are like, yeah, this does suck in, who actually recognize that it's a problem. This isn't just a problem for the smart home industry. It's a problem for consumers. It's a problem for manufacturers, and it's going to be a legal problem because we like I said, everybody's hardware. Your car, your corporate, I don't know. Manufacturing machines. They're all becoming software. And software has different ownership require different requirements by the manufacturers like different obligations for security and things like that. It has a different product for the it's a different product for the consumer. And we don't realize that. There's a good story actually this week from ars technica on people buying the Nordic track, something attacking it. Yeah. And hacking it. And then Netflix. Yeah, they have to, they were like, this thing has a 32 inch screen on it. I love it. I'm gonna hack it. So we're gonna base Android. We'll just sideload Netflix, YouTube, and whatever we want. Apparently, Nordic track was like, you know what? We're going to update this. It's easy to sideload stuff. And maybe Nordic track didn't realize it was breaking a critical functionality that people loved. But Nordic track didn't offer it as a formal functionality. So for their perspective, they're kind of in the clear and maybe they want to do a business model where they do a deal with YouTube for exclusive access. These are the sorts of things a lot of the conflict about the stuff we're buying today is conflicts about, is it hardware or software? Well, and more even more, it's often you own the hardware, but you don't own the software. And so as a result, you don't really own the device. You don't control it. And it's not just home automation. Everything. It's your car. It's your car. It's your John Deere combine. My favorite comment in the hacker news thread from Brian Rasmussen, very simple, there will come soft rains. Which, if your Ray Bradbury fan, you know exactly what they're referring to. Is that from the veldt or is that actually the name of the story I'm trying to remember? You should tell everyone who doesn't know that story. Well, the veldt is a great example. Let's see. Oh yeah, there will come soft rains is the story and it's after the nuclear meltdown. There's nothing left except the automated devices, which.

"Not like a yeah, so if it fell off if it was ripped off like you wouldn't be injured. Yeah, there's no wires going into the arm. Okay. The reason why I say that though is because structurally the body and the musculature are not really. These arms couldn't pick up a lot of weight. No, all kidding aside. Yeah, they couldn't, but it would be functional. You could pick up a can of soda. You know, that's use it. You could pick it up enough. And you may have been looking at it. It would have proper strength. And I know that it's there. I know you're not crushing it. That's amazing. So I keep a close eye on this technology and it's again nice incremental improvements. This was worthy of comment. All right, bob, you're going to give us a quickie about quick eaves on Mars. Okay, yes, thank you, Steve. This is your cookie with bob everyone. Recent analysis by scientists have shown what could be more than a thousand caves in the tharsis bulge region of Mars. There's no where that region is. But it sounds kind of cool. Make a left at the close and cut off. Calculations show that these caves could be lifesaving for a human future human colonists, not unlike the lava tubes on the moon. This presupposes though that Mars is far deadlier than a lot of people I think really, really truly understand. They think, oh, it's got an atmosphere. You know, that's not bad. But it barely has an atmosphere. Barely barely. Edited does not have a magnetosphere. Which is also very critical. I mean, regarding the atmosphere, if you're at sea level on Mars, it has .0 .7% the air pressure that we experience at sea level. I mean, you might as well be nothing. It's so small. Let me ask you this. Yes, ask. You may remember this answer that's in our upcoming book. Four. Back to the Future. What pressure would you need to have on Mars or anywhere? What pressure does it really human being need in order to be able to survive without a pressure state? Oh, it was a lot. No, it was actually one of the 6%. Yeah. Oh, really? That's it. Of an atmosphere. The survivability, you can survive. You can't breathe. You need oxygen, but it's not as much as I thought. It's really, but you can't implode. Yeah, you won't go anywhere. But you can't move. You can't move, because if you move, then you would run out. But yeah, but still, even if that is true, but even so we would need 6 7 8 times what's there now just to be able to breathe in the box? So with the volatiles on Mars, we could get to the point where there was enough of an atmosphere where all you would need was supplemental oxygen. You wouldn't need the pressure shit. Yeah. You wouldn't be like, Arnold Schwarzenegger in total. But talking reality tit today, it's a horrible place. But it's not just the atmosphere that the ultraviolet and ionizing radiation. It's so deadly. How much do you think it's on Mars in terms of that radiation than on the earth? Because 900 times. The radiation doses are 900 times. I don't think I've ever been so fast in my life. You were wrong before. That's the question. So calculations show how come this is a quickie. This can't just be under a minute, right for you to finish. Okay. Calculations show that only 2% of the UV would get you through most of those caves. Only 2%. But enough light would get in that photosynthesis wouldn't be completely gone. It would still be able to take advantage of photosynthesis. And they think that for the ionizing ionizing radiation, it would be the same. Very little would get in. So this could be a real haven for future colonists. Also, while you're in a cave, you can also search for life, J because if I'm living on Mars, I'm going in a cave, even if I'm a little microbe so there could be who knows what kind of life could have developed on Mars eons ago in these caves. So in the future, artists who wants to Negro may say, get your ass to a cave on Mars. Yes, this was your cookie with bob. I hope it was good for you too. Okay, thank you, Jake. So Evan worked up a little puzzle for us that we're going to do before we go to science or fiction. And he has given us a bunch of quotes and we have to figure out who it's attributed to, right? So you're going to play at home, you're going to keep your own score. We're going to ask each of the individuals here who they think the correct answer is. The first, quote, science, my lad is made up of mistakes, but there are mistakes which is useful to make because they lead little by little to the truth. Was that written by Jules Verne Ray Bradbury or Edgar Rice Burroughs? Let's go down the list, Steve. George, Bradbury, Kara. Third? Bob? Doesn't sound like Bradbury to me. I'll go where that Edgar Rice Burroughs. Okay, and Jules Verne. If you answer Jules Verne, you are correct. Nicely done. Come to the center of your car, you and me, baby. Oh, nice. Next, I despise the lottery. There's less chance of you becoming a millionaire than there is of getting hit on the head by a passing asteroid. We'll start at the end, J that's Phil plait. Bob. Got.

Hawes anderson you pointed that one out earlier. This book is one of the most challenged books of twenty twenty. And i read it because back when my sons were freshmen in high school about ten years ago the book was on the summer reading list and a few of the parents challenged it. Wow yes so. I had to read it so i could see what all the kerfuffle was about. And of course that word. By the way buckle in my own little way silently ridiculed the small minded people who tried to withhold this literature. Come knowledge in my little small hamlets.

I agree. I am always surprised that of mice and men by john. Steinbeck is still being challenged and is on the banned book list for racial slurs and racist stereotypes and the negative effect. I'm putting that in quotes on students. This is a book that john will always pick up at airports and read while traveling. Because it's just an avella is short. it's very readable. there's so much more to it than the stereotypes that someone has put on the story. It's it's about loneliness companionship. The impossibility of the american dream for some people freedom. Contentment safety are not found in this world or not found in this america. And i love this quote by john steinbeck. Keep it in one of his Journal entries in nineteen thirty eight and it just speaks to me. In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a a team. Try to understand men.

"Now while we're going through and talking about time after time. I feel like we should also just run through this list. The example of transfers to the other time travel movie we've done. Yeah and i think the basic answer is always gonna be yes sort of maybe but who knows because transfers is all over the place with time travel and why they're doing it and who's doing it But i would say yes. Transfers definitely does this but it's messy okay that's debugging history. The next major time travel theme. I would say is journey time island. This is a time travel story. This is probably one of the least thematically interesting ways of using time travel story and it's a story that uses some time in the future or the past primarily as a hostile setting for adventure so in these stories the pastor of the future can be thought of as largely equivalent to physical places like skull island or the forbidden planet. It's just a dangerous place for the characters to arrive and then face unfamiliar challenges. And i will say time after time does not largely fall into this category but actually h g wells novel. The time machine is more in this vein yet. Traveling to a distant future for example that The the definitely is a commentary on the president. Or the the victorian present the author lived in But also it is just kind of this fantastic place in which to have an adventure right. I think the time machine also takes largely of another more interesting category. We'll get to in a minute now. The the time travel time island rather This idea was thinking to myself. Okay what's something that that falls in line with this in my mind instantly goes to ray bradbury's a sound of thunder though that one is also a debugging history Tale to a to a large extent that yes sort of accidental debugging off.

"Reads. Yeah. What you got? Well, I've got a couple of folks who both have very interesting books that are out. Um Jennifer cation. Armstrong has a new book She's written on television before. But her new book is when women in Bennett television, so for people coming out of the pandemic, who've been watching too much TV, this is a fundraiser perform. And it's a true story of the four different women who were extremely instrumental and the founding of television as we know it, including Betty White. Who was the first woman to write, produce and star in her own television show. Um, And so that's a really fun read, Um, brand new book. Uh, Kia, Delia Harris has put out the other black girl. Which is a fun book that just came out. It's a thriller, and it's about a woman who's feeling manipulated and threatened and overworked in the workplace. Um, and it's something that will keep you on the edge of your seat. What would you recommend for history buffs? Well, we have a new exhibit on Ray Bradbury so I would point out that if you really want to know history, it's great to look at it through the lens of a person. So biography set from Dr Jonathan Eller wrote a three volume series The last, which came out last year on the life of Ray Bradbury's, So There's three volumes becoming Ray Bradbury, Ray Bradbury, inbound and Bradbury beyond Apollo, and it's a great way to look at the history of the 20th century through one author's experiences and your exhibit the American Writers Museum of Ray Bradbury it's running until May 2022 so plenty of time. To check that out. What about your pick from Lawrence P. Jackson? What's that one? Well, um, if you're not familiar with Chester Himes, he was, you know, he's known somewhat as a crime writer, um, and a mystery writer was an African American writer. Had a fascinating and difficult and trying life he was, you know what is considered part of the Harlem Renaissance. Um and so Lawrence V. Jackson in 2017 wrote a very thorough biography on his life. Chester Behinds biography. And it's an entirely different perspective on you know, a kind of life in the early 20th century. Um, he was born in 19. Oh, six. He spent a number of years in jail. Um, he eventually moved to Paris and France in his later years became part of that expatriate group of writers like James Baldwin and and others. Um so He lived in different parts of the country suffered through amazing difficulties and racism. And and it comes forth and not just his stories about those topics, but also then his crime fiction as well. And you have a couple of picks for mystery lovers as well. Sure, you know of Joey Day, uh, a huge best seller and I got to meet him a couple of years ago as we were working on our my America exhibit. Um, and he's got a series of books. The his hero is called IQ is sort of the, um Sherlock Holmes of the Hood, as he would refer to him and Joey Day is very interesting guy. And so he's got a new one out called Smoke, which I think is the fifth in that series. Nice. Summer is also a good chance for for parents, Um, to read with their kids, right? So would you recommend anything for them? Yeah, I mean, Gary Paulsen has a brand new book called Going to the Woods. Um, you know, and which is a really great book about life in the outdoors and connecting. It's his story, but it's written as a young adult novel. Um and and I think that it's one that's very touching. Um, I think Erica Sanchez is, um not your perfect Mexican daughter is another great book. Yes, I've been hearing about that one. Yeah. And yeah, both really good books and and stuff that are really good reads with kids and finally carry Are there a couple of books that defy categorization? But, you know, you just have to share them with us. Yeah, well, I mean, I wouldn't say that if I categorization, But you know, there are a couple of books that I found, you know, amazing. In the last year, um Attached to breath. Away's memoir, which is called Memorial Drive tells her story. You know, she's a former poet laureate of the U. S. Um and and her poetry is just Phenomenal and she's a great writer, and this memoir is extremely fascinating and tough, and, uh, in a good read, Um and then Robert Jones Jr. The profit is a really good book, and I would recommend it for folks. Um and, uh and he's a really fascinating writer. That's awesome. There you have it.

That king wants it to be taken your so. I'm trying to learn something right. I want to be a horror author. What is a horror author. What do they do And he gets to this chapter on ray bradbury and this is where he decides to like swerve out and he's like to in order for me to tell you about ray bradbury and something wicked this way comes. I need to tell you about feodor. Dreicer and sherwood anderson The reason that these authors are all connected is that they're from the mid west and blah blah blah blah blah. But then he has this line. He says he connects dreicer in bradberry by saying that They are both naturalists but bradberry turns to fantasy whereas a theater dreicer is all about social critique. Here is the thing cameron. Here's the thing that michael new at age thirteen. That stephen king didn't know in nineteen eighty eight. Like he's like thirty three or something Ray bradbury wasn't a naturalist. Naturalism is realism. It's just straight up wrong. That's not how literary history works like. I was the kid in my english classes. When they taught us like the big sort of like literary movements like gotha schism and romanticism and stuff. I loved that. I ate that up. So i one of my. I kind of like ways of apprehending. Literature was about a learning This kind of history and kind of the taxonomy that develop and how those work. And so i'm reading here as you know little teenage michael. And he says ray bradbury is a naturalist and it's like no zola is a naturalist. What the hell are you talking about like ray. Bradbury is writing about ghosts in rocket ships. That's just wrong agreed. Ously wrong even better that ghosts and rocket ships in the same stories right lake. I guess natural literally.

Tell me Tell me something Good, Stupid joke Shine. All right, All right. Here we go. All right, Here's a belated your eyes. A belated Christmas story for you. On December 1st, the Flores Gonzales, Twins Luna and Jen Ella wrote letters to Santa Claus. Like a lot of kids do. They folded their letters, They tied them to a pair of hot pink star shaped balloons. Took photos of themselves with their balloons, and they released him off into the air over the reason Santa Claus will get them in time for Christmas. Well, Mom said it was something different for the girls to do that would help that they could remember after a rough 2020. It was a cold and windy day that seven of the beginning of a Ray Bradbury novels all day that day when they when they released the balloons, and they really didn't Mom didn't really expect him to get very far without either getting caught up in a tree or getting ripped up in the winds. Well, fast forward a few weeks later. From December 1st two January 2nd Alvin Bomberg is hunting and he discovers a hot pink balloon in the woods with a note attached to it. Written by Luna Flores Gonzales. So he read the note and he wondered where this thing came from. He posted on Facebook picture of the balloon with the note, he said, would love to know when it was launched. Looks like it's traveled over 600 miles, and he thought something special might come out of this. Well, thankfully, the Facebook didn't see his post as subversive and word spread through social media, and after a ton of shares, Mr Bomberg was able to track down the family who launched the balloon. Mr Bomberg, by the way, found the balloon while hunting and grand cane Louisiana Luna Flores Gonzalez launched the balloon from liberal Kansas. Hold on. Hold on. Are you kidding? Hold on! Hold 650 Miles away, Lord. The note said, Dear Santa, My name is Luna. I'm four years old. I live in liberal Kansas this year. I would love it if you could bring me candy Spider Man Ball frozen doll puppy. My little pony. And would you please get hell, Jay to stop calling my house Now I really do have a broad audience. Don't wait. Wait with love Luna. How is to Bomberg? Talkto talked with Miss Flores Gonzalez to work out a way to arrange people to fulfill these wishes on the Christmas list. And Ah Miss Flores Gonzalez told her daughters that she knew of a special elf that found Luna's letter after Santa dropped it. She added that any gifts on the list, though, that were sent to the house by Mr Bomberg, or anyone who saw the story on social media would be donated. Mm. Theo to some kid's stuff. How about My question is this. It's a very nice story. I love this story. It's a great story. So is the other daughter. The twin Jin Jin Ella Luna's twin sister, is she thinking Wait a minute. Santa law salute his letter, but he got mine. So where are my presents Lease? Another example of the postal Service just messing how to be together.

Well, Joe Biden would call him Uh, one horse pony. Which was a zoo. Another thing that makes absolutely no sense, Harry Pet ago. How are you, Gary? Jeff. Happy birthday, my friend. It's wonderful to hear your voice. Thank you very much for the wishes and the greeting and everything else, Harry and thank you for making yourself available. I know your schedule is very busy. In fact, you're off work all week. Exactly. Gary. I've been really It's been tough, honestly kind of easing into. I think that, you know, we need some sympathy. Just kind of sliding into that. No work, no schedule thing. I think I need some condolences, man, but I'm happy to. Well, this is what this is. This is training for some day. If you're fortunate enough to have built up in as a nest egg, and you've got a retirement plan that you're probably putting into place right now, as you should be, which I didn't. That's why I'm still on the radio because I didn't put together a retirement plan. But you're getting a taste of what it will be like some day when you could just hang it up. Harry is a music teacher and and teaches All kinds of things at ST Michael's there in in in in Brown County, Ohio, is it Brown County or Claremont County, Ohio, For here in Ripley of ST Michael's, manages a special little schooling but teaching there for gosh, it's almost six years now. Gary teaching social studies English and music. Right, And Harry is a phenomenal musician. By the way, I got to find that out firsthand when watching him and his father playing a trio. He's also The man behind the the CD or album. I guess you'd call it. Dylan is dead, and he plays in incredible assortment of music and and instruments, including a violin and he sat down with Chris Goings and I when we were down at Brookies in Ripley, Just a couple of weeks back, and we never played together and whom he would knows if he knew the song, But he knew it as soon as he assumes he put that violent under his Jenny knew the song and we were just We were so lucky to have you there, Dude, that was so much I had. I had a real blast, but that was the first time I played out and, you know a little while because of the covert stuff and You know, it's easy to play good when you're around great musicians, ma'am. And you, you and Chris were just Oh, my gosh, That was phenomenal. I enjoyed the heck out of it. Do you know what? After looking at the innards of some of this covert 19 stimulus bill that this last one that they they run their hands over him too hard and waited until the last minute. Had Nancy Pelosi blame the Republicans for it taking so long and all the other stuff Well, I wish I was the Dalai Lama because the Dalai Lama apparently got millions of dollars in this coat for some reason, very Jeff. It's really shocking, man. I was looking over that same stuff today. And just the amount of money that we're giving to. You know, that has nothing to do not not related to covert 19 it all exactly. Yeah. What's that lived in another country right now? Because apparently they're getting more stimulus money than we are, man, right? The stimulus for Americans and addressing covert 19 and the vac. Seen distribution and all the rest is about 30% of this. $900 billion.30 percent went on Gary Jeff for me. Could you ever feel like we're living in the Twilight zone? Right now? Many Shall we have been all year? You kidding me? I tell you what that really is just, you know, we know we're obviously gonna be, you know, paying for the stimulus check through taxes or whatnot. You know, in the In the very long term future, Harry Harry talking to me. Your your grandchildren will be paying for this. Yeah, I guess we could say so long to that idea of settling down into retirement, Gary You know that they'll probably have some nice government housing for you. There'll be a a big screen TV on a 10 by 10 Wall and and that's that's how and it'll be feeding you. You know, insurers something with your government. Check Gerry. Jeff, you know it's crazy man is have been teaching them this past semester at up ST Michael's. My eighth graders and I have been reading Fahrenheit 4 51 and I had to read that book since I was in high school man, and everybody always remembers Spirit had 4 51 that all the the book burnings and all that kind of stuff, but Um, that is a incredibly and just terrifyingly accurate for trail of what we're living in right now. And you know what? Relation? Hey, you know what else, Harry? No, it should be required. Reading for your eighth graders was is George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm because that's an apt description of what we're dealing with right now. As far as the thought police and everything else is going on. Yeah, I tell you what you know, Gary Jeff, One of the things that freaked me out big time with 4 51 was. You know this was written years and years. I think I personally think Ray Bradbury Is possibly what was a genius and for a time traveler or time traveling is Gary Jeff. I was shocked hearing about. He talks about how people have you know Bluetooth your pieces and they have constant entertainment going on in one of the old man I saw the other day. I'm not sure if you have this over there in Hamilton County, but Hear enough and Ripley in Aberdeen. I've noticed when I go to the the gas station with the second, you start pumping gas, a little tiny TV screen pops on and plays advertising to be seen this way. Got him at the speedway there in northern Kentucky. Absolutely. Get away from it. You're constantly bombarded with. You know what? You should be listening to what you should be thanking. Like you said the thought police. I mean, we're living in dystopia right now. Wait is terrified. What I need are some noise canceling headphones when I go to pump my gas, and I just won't pay attention to what's on the screen and I generally don't anyway. It is a scary time. Gary Jeremy. My gosh, it just, you know, you know, social media. I'm not sure how active you are on Facebook or anything like that.

Interview With Author David Yoon

"This week. I'm thrilled to have david yunan. Whose newest book super fake love song is out now. An conversation that we pretty much covered all talk about his newest book a his debut his writing journey and a lot about what he was like as a young person so really enjoyed talking to david. Hope you enjoy listening listening so david. What book hooked you. What book hooked me It's it was when i was in middle school. I don't know exactly how old i was. But i remember talking to my librarian and i was like i don't know to read their so many books in the school library and she just pulled out the halloween tree by ray bradbury and If you read this book but it's it has these awesome woodcut Drawings in it and it came up a long time ago. Like in the sixties. I want to say and this is way before like killington and the newspaper from the nightmare before christmas. But it's kind of there's a character in it. That is the skeleton dude with. I think he has a pumpkin for a head. I know he doesn't but he's like this very skeleton like figure and he's very creepy and he's very Theatrical like jack's kellington was and he challenges This group of boys on halloween when their trick or treating to to give up a year of their lives to save the life of their best friend Pippin who's at homesick can't trick or treat and so they travel around the world and learn about like all these Reports and customs that surrounding death and they wind up in mexico and they eat The sugar skulls and that is like. I'm going to give up a year my life to save my friend and It was just so it's like super atmospheric and super moody. This is awesome so then at of course read all very bradberry. I could find reading stuff. I shouldn't have been reading and so middle school time. Was that in age. Like were you a big reader. Then was it hard to get you to read or was it something where you pretty much constantly always had some sort of book. You're working your way through. I mean i was always reading. Yeah for sure Is reading a lot of stuff But then that book kind of it was like my first sorta grownup book. I guess and after that i started reading a of piers anthony fancy novels and i read like fifteen close and i was like wait a second. It's kind of the same story over and over again and that's florida and Then i started reading a lot of stephen king which i know i shouldn't have been reading And my dad was a weird guy to he. he He studied victorian like them. He he focused on the metaphysical poets. Okay it adds seoul university in career and then when it came to the united states he studied library science all things. wow and so he was like you need to be reading old man and the sea You need to be reading. Was it on human bondage and then lady chatterley's lover and was like that. I don't think i should be reading this. But he didn't care he's like the crazy. Daddy shows like the horror movies to his kids because he wants them to to Have a good sense of the canon. Anna is exposed to a lot of stuff that i probably shouldn't have been but i'm grateful for it and i would imagine while it was definitely helping Definitely helpful for your reading life to have a dad like that and that was kind of pushing it but was there any sort of rebellion there. That because you were being forced to read so many books were pushed upon you that reading. You rebelled against or turn against it because it was it was assigned by by dad I don't know it's hard to remember like like reading moby dick before high school. Sure looks like there's no way. I'm gonna finish so even if it did come from like a friend i don't know if i would have just cause but it did. It did feel like homework for sure At the same time like my older brother. I have one older brother. And he was a big reader to He used to read at the dinner table and it was like a problem. You know But i you know. I'm a little brother saw. I'll read to on just like him. I want to compete in everything we do. Because we're siblings. So he also turned me into the reader just sort of inadvertently and so when you got to high school especially when those are when in in those english courses you're being assigned full size novels and things like that. Didn't you find and really getting into what's canonized literature. We'll call it. Were you kind of a step ahead. That you think In those courses because dad already sorta had you on that home regiment of a reading those types of books. That's a funny question. Because i just realized really recently i mean my dad passed away like over a year ago. and so It just when you're when your parent passes away and makes you think a lot about your relationship in like your whole history. And i was like dude. My dad was like an outsized influence in in my interest in writing in books. I never appreciated him fully for that. He just kinda did it sure Yes and when. I hit high school. It was english. Classes where my absolute favorite My english teachers were my absolute favorite. My locker got broken into one time. So isis i was like no lockers and i used my english teacher's classroom as my locker That's how much we trusted. Each other's liked each other so that was sort of the year of You know camus. And ray bradbury. Shirley jackson and margaret atwood. That's like when i started really getting into those guys and and then i was like all right. This is this is really important to me.

More Halloween Wines 2020

"It's now, it's me Dave from a cheap wine finder.com off the scary music playing which means is another Halloween wines episode. And today we've got I mean look at it. It's Freakshow Lodi Chardonnay. 2818. Yeah, it's a freak Show Off is actually not all that scary the scary but the freak Show is more reference to a long time probably novel side shows and on the front. There's the mermaid lady the fish lady and it's kind of scary in the Ray Bradbury Something Wicked This Way Comes kind of way, which I'm done with. They're trying to get in. But you know. It looks good. And it tastes great. And the best thing about this one thing I find our for $14 is from Michael and David their their fifth generation. I think the 6th generation still working at the winery grape Growers and Lodi the family has been farming there for over a hundred and fifty years, which is kind of off but I'm talking here which is kind of common in Lodi. There's a lot of the big names there have been there for Generations, which is one of the things I like about it were so many Palm wine brands in California are fo wine Brands mean no Winery. No Vineyard safe, they buy the grapes and they rent the space make good wine, but low tides that I'm not doing an old-school. This is a really good Chardonnay. It's half barrel fermented and 1/2 stainless steel fermented, but they used all new o'farrell's off. I don't know what he said, but I'm afraid now and 80% new French barrels and 20% new American Oak barrels that's expensive. This is a line. I found off $14 and that's an upscale a little detail that really makes this wine because it's got really premium. It's Gotta Stay prudent Michael and David they have different lipsticks sense cerrad a couple of other brands there. They do a good job along with Freak Show also has as in a Cabernet seven young at a red blend which are like those are three of the best things you can get out of load at. And you know, it's a really great place for value-priced. Why isn't this Chardonnay? Leave me alone. You're trying to scare me, but it won't work. It's a really great place though the San Pablo Bay, which is the northern part of San Francisco Bay goes far enough Inland, even though it's The Vineyards are like from 7,200 miles away from the ocean. The bay is up there and there's all these river valleys that go flowing through there. It's lower areas cold air gets funneled in there and they can have wine even though nothing around them is the old able to grow grapes. Napa Valley is north of them and West and they're in the mountains and that changes everything to load. I'm not have the mountains or they're they have valleys. This is a really tasty chardonnays and the oak program with all that new Oak and and the fermentation and Oak really comes through cuz there's some really delicious page here. And it's it's nothing is over-the-top. Everything has kind of bounced out and it's like there's some salty and loose things. There's there's some buttery phone numbers. There's some creamy flavors are some ripe fruit flavors. There's just a lot of flavor here. So if it's not the scariest Halloween one, I could come up with no skulls or you know, anything like that. It does taste really good. Can you hear that too, or is it just me? So anyway? I keep on taking ships cuz it's that good. It's a delicious why it's got its because of all that Oak and the way they made it they you know, even though it's a 2018. It's it's it's still a kind of a young one that's got a good and engages your pal in a really nice way. So that's it for me. I found a freakshow chardonnay from I have the zombies invading my headphones and They're good. So I'm the next one. Keep it cheap, but there's more Halloween's lines come in and adios, and bye-bye.

I mean we're always a writer and what was the process like getting this book maiden put out into the world I never really thought I would ever become a writer I've always absolutely loved reading when I was little I would read all the time. It was my favorite thing like if I could get some Mike Birthday money are doing that always like go towards books like without a doubt. But I never considered. Writing as something that I could do personally. Won I think is is when I was young. There weren't many authors that were. Not White. And Seeing that I was like, okay that's that's not me like I. Love these books. Obviously, I love these authors but I don't think that's that that is me can I can do? So I kind of actually followed in the fall footsteps in my father like what did Biz Adnan or major fight that All all along I did like I love books nevertheless like I loved. Just, the world of books in how it could take away bean escape. I, looking back I didn't do realize that. I did right when I was anchor I never thought much of it but I did right. just refine. Journal or diary land in Middle School. My teacher had speed. The Martian chronicles by Ray, Bradbury. I really liked the book It's budget short stories sort of like said on Mars in then. So her prompt was your own little Martian chronicles on chapter. And having super excited as. Oh. My Gosh is this homework like this can't be homework? This is actually fun. Did that and I didn't think much of it entered it. I was like a penis assignment. That another instance to that like I think this in fifth grade where we did the committee evil medieval course. I also had to write for that class to end up writing like. Twenty K. word count on. The Story? And super excited about that. But then I never thought about it like elevated could be career. Because all I saw Romney was like business medical health care. Fields so might say loss. Eastern. American conduct. Exactly. which you know I still have my day job. Of course in my day job was actually working out really well right now but I I graduated college. I started started day job and. I've been working before you know like I am. Worked Rosen Yogurt shop in high school in like I did internships and stuff like that I worked in the job through college. But my first day job I sat down as her working has. GotTa be more to life than this. Has To. Be. So. Like go back and forth nine to five day job GonNa Commute. Drive home. There's something missing. That job was the right job for me for one company was on the right bit but. I realized I didn't do something more like a Passion Hobby And so I was like, well, obviously like I love books. So maybe I can write like this for fun.
