"You don't want to give up your pimento cheese habit, if you don't have any celery in the house, you can always put pimento cheese on ice cubes and eat it that way. 'cause that's also a negative calorie food. Celery, celery, and ice cubes. John, yes, David David mentions pimento cheese. Yes. You gave me a gift this year of pimento cheese. Is it the same pimento cheese? David was eating? No. Okay. That was authentic North Carolina pimento cheese. The gifts that we sent to our partners in this project, the pimento I cheese aid is just like the one 99 special at Trader Joe's. I don't know where it's made. It's not regionally authentic. You know, David's always going to TJ's for all of us. Yeah, last time we actually last time. We were on this podcast. We talked about Trader Joe's, yeah. But pimento cheese, if they're listeners who don't know, our show dick town is set in a fictional town in North Carolina called richardsville, and in the Carolinas they have pimento cheese, which is what David shredded Cheddar cheese and I'm a fool. I'm just putting all of this together. I did not even, I didn't I just thought it was a nice gift for me. I explained it to you for doing the show. I wrote you a little email explaining it. Someone's ring my doorbell. Hold on, hold on a second. I'm sorry. Let's find out who this is. Yeah, that's my letter explaining what pimento cheese is. Oh, someone is literally ringing his doorbell? I thought he just didn't want to have this conversation. No, no, this is about. This is a professional podcast. I could even see you during our cord. Look at that. The answer is door. We can see him open the door. This is pretty common. Really easy to get a lot of deliveries. Big glass stories scratching his chin, and he does get a lot of deliveries, and he will not allow the person to just leave it outside. He has to go in person. Someone's coming in the house. He's walking into the house. Oh, it's two people. A crew of people. Three different people with matching walls. Walking into his house. I hope this is playing out loud into his apartment right now. I'm gonna guess they're installing a Coca-Cola freestyle machine. Good guess. Mitch, what the hell is going on? Who are those people? What was that? I'm getting 5000 Tiger bites delivered, and they sent a crew. It looked like a dance team. One of my Windows is not working. So the developers, they've sent over some great people to help fix the window. Is that good for podcast? According to have a window installed while you're recording? Yeah, you schedule the window for when we were recording doughboys. Yeah, we need three hours. Exactly when we have our cord schedule. Okay, that is, that is not. That's not how it happened.

The whiskey opened up for the jam and This was his showcase. But i don't think it went that well also things about but that gig fascinate me. The fact that john was paired with jam store with makes no sense whatsoever. Who has a can with the idea of that. But the idea that You know. I need somebody to eat mine. Big australia mind for full. In in america panitan summit but the idea in a rain coat on removes was was wearing his brief. It's just war on earth manning it's unimaginable. That he would do that but it's not sense that you know he was someone who was just desperate to do what it took to get where he got to make an impression also. He never got good reviews. I love these. This was back in the day when rolling stone. Just they wrote whatever like unfiltered exactly how they felt like the first one. I wouldn't buy a used car from this man anytime you opens his mouth that uses insincerity. No-one writes reviews like that. Would i mean. I'm sure you can never do something like that or have you i am. I advocated stunned cima pilots. That may be really really good point. I think that that era where it was that i mean it was. It was a blood sport. Wasn't it. I think it made things with people right wrong. It makes magazines more interesting us face without sending a day semi alabama but it made things more comfort the quebec confrontational aspect to it. It made things more interesting.

"Say that. Why didn't i just say that without having to be reminded that something actually happened this week. We went to speed see annette. Sparks brothers movie not the sparks brothers movie. That's a whole different movie which was also awesome. Something we also saw that together. We've seen we've seen the whole sparks of why it less than a month. One dave food. Good with your friends too because this one had a french director. Thank you when you followed up on that. Very good. If you love sparks. It's worth looking into. That's all i'll say about that that we turn to the heartland and john mellencamp and book that's out by paul. Rees is legit. He was the editor of q magazine in the uk. In karang also wrote a couple of biographies on john whistle and rubber plants. We had a great time talking with this. Scott scott scotsman. This spine scotsman. Okay thank you holly. I don't wanna. I don't wanna offend the scots. Then sense that's correct. It's what what sounds right. Okay so why. Don't we just get right into our talk with paul reese. He is the author of mellencamp that is out. Now let's get into it on the what differences make podcast. Y'all say you ready to talk mellencamp okay wonderful. This book is called mellencamp simple. Is this an authorized biography. Tina booklets coal in the springsteen book that he did. I think i'm familiar with that one. It's kind it's really similar. In the he knew all he spent three extended the of interviewed members of his family of the both still is. He's broza premature everybody. Everybody that's in eastbound live and most people that apply to them x. manages unending he and his dad supplied Book so he's been Could be seen the manuscript etc etc excess not officially authorized but he's been very helpful. Management have been very helpful now. What is the difference. Because i know you've spoken to everybody you know. I guess with his blessing. What's the difference between an authorized biography. And what you're doing is i would say yours was authorized the split saddam's Shitty decides that it's exactly springsteen when he cooperate and help without the and then he won't stereo and so chill if us to john decide to his own book I think potentially might be easy to do. The if he's not all thrust before so he can put the word on on the cover he could put that particular word on the cover. Yeah all right. We'll after spending some time with with mellencamp and your book. I feel like he would never approve of anything that ever came out from anyone else except for for him. He's a he's a stubborn fellow at It seems like Likes likes to do things his way. Probably one of the reasons these last as long as he asked and one of the reasons is interesting. You know he walks debate draw. I think possibly because we all the things that happened to career as he's honest he made all the mistakes gonna make rice affront. His name chains me so is a mitch from an older accident. I think e at you ought to do things zone way. Determine determined White how much did you know about him. In advance of this. What dream to him. The offensive scarecrow. Way way in my use Just invented the whale god Old jack and diane that was mahood him and then scare problems for somebody. I really listen to and adopted offensive. Then been the same when he played over here but when i was in q. Random Tie all he was just finished with commoner And i've met him before he come up with cured so admit but then i got i got into in bloomington and spend a couple of days within an i didn't realize how interesting he walls and if you sit until two as like a character leeann character american fiction and i think that was the point realizing I met him he Victorian an he pulled up a free fulham blade in better than sublease which he pulled them. Busted the manos and just this is a guy it as black peace fiction and south so that that was kind of to tell the story. What were your impressions. First of all of bloomington and did you go to see more just to kind of get the atmosphere of where this guy grew up in small town livingston twice. I think bloomington's probably the the blooming in a small town. Indiana small and indiana said In bloomington and you just get rid of it is. It is a small town. He stayed he. Didn't lose. neil or light. You wanna ryan bloomington. Everybody knows who he is. You women in all in bloomington make tell you that scene in across the street you will bookshelf. Someone in the book shelves the story by john. Mellencamp doing mass jalen can meet the delo. Law Ole these Things the idea that i mean. He kind of embodies that small town american midwest america ethos ale too any differences indiana's very much shown a red state and he's the best for on the opposite from from right as you can be in political also was curious about the bible this that we live in los angeles so either has lived in a small town and it's fascinating the way you colored it so you talked a lot about where you wrote a lot about john's youth and how he was just kind of like a bad boy you know not so much into education and you know a lot about his family. Which is you know is great to have that that background but how he developed into such a such a like a thoughtful adult he must have had the bill the ability the song writing the writing ability it must have all been there for him to have turned into what he was at least the way you described his his sessions with the musicians about knowing exactly what he wants and understanding. The music That if you if you talk to him anybody he will be an emmy. does he. very much says it's all about all anybody do without that he. He would really hard now. He really did apply himself to the business of making himself. Good but i also think has to be said it has to be they in some way shape before. I think you have to be blessed in some ways shop for to be able to he. He told himself Longtime ago rick rubin. He was talking about working with tom. Patsy and he said gee could these. These people kind of plugged into something that you want a said you'd be having a conversation but some not it leads to be talking to you. He being gates conversation with him and he nigga easily start and stop playing utah and he would extend a pick something at three. Just the grasped will it was the songo'o ever at the and then he roy sung in ten minutes. I'm pete mellencamp took but then signed whatever he says he's trying themselves by. I think the some whether it's place still gift to the whatever is you're able to tap into that kind of thing you might be able to hone get better and beth writes it but i think it's probably the yeah. We touched on it a little bit like his upbringing. His parents had bongo parties. Can you explain what a bongo party. I'm still not entirely sure long. I think is actually. It is exactly what it says like bongos people would come running. And it's the between in music on and the bongos random Would play ball. Knows it's by. I've ever heard of the concept the bummed their politics But but that appears to be what it is like a drum circle so he was always around music. I mean growing up. There was music in the family you know. They went to proud in church. I don't know how much music was there. But i'm sure that you know that kind of has an impact and you kind of touched on like he had this thirst for to discover gover music. He spent all his money on on records. And things like that. And i think he's is half for. The result is operatives To hint he was the first one that started guitar. Eight didn't obsess i rotate to be gave johnson rudimentary lessons. Gift to top joe. Mullen capital the maintains that he's got the best voice in the family and has always been the But but he is. He's a bit.

"I so i guess to answer your question. I mean obviously like every middle age white guy part of me thinks of course i should be hosting a huge political podcast. I'm as smart as anyone else. I read the new york times five years ago but obviously i'm not qualified for that. I'm much more qualified to make a podcast with two friends where we just let inside. Jokes spiral out of control and dunk on ted cruz. Once every thirty five minutes does the betting place will role. That pencil sharpening played earlier in your career where it's just an opportunity to focus on something kind of absurd but but hyper focus on it and build out from there. Yeah i think maybe you're right. I think so. In a way it's not that dissimilar to just deciding to only make comics clip art. I don't have the. I don't have a masterful creative imagination i. I'm not one of those creative people who can look at black canvas and just blank canvas and just conjure a world from nothing or right. I have to have restraints. I have to have limits. I've always been that way. I think the only creative projects where i haven't had these self imposed limits. I guess are probably like music related. Maybe that's why music to me is so fun and exciting away and feels un monetize -able in a way. I don't know like once. Once i had the conceit. Then you just start playing against in pushing the conceit and seeing how far you can take it like okay so the book is going to be about pencil sharpening. How crazy can the pencil sharpening techniques get. Can we do a whole photo spread about how to sharpen a pencil while you stand in front of a car. Like that's pretty funny. Idea is going to be a really crazy photograph like and we'll treat it with the same gravitas that we treat sharpening a pencil with a straight blade or the political podcast. It's going to be about bedding but we'll also talk about whatever else we want. I don't know i think i do. I do like to have the conceit. It's the elevator pitch. I don't know this is this is a this is a cartoon where it's just. It's just weird geometric shapes yelling about whose turn it is to do the dishes like that's the world. just do everything you can within that world. I feel like i like that stuff. It's very stimulating to me. You know i find that kind of stuff. It's just as exciting as being told like yeah. You can do whatever you want pitch to. Tv show can be whatever you want. I shut down. You know it's it's. I feel like maybe i don't have the creative confidence to to build something from scratch. Somebody tells you do a tv show. You can do whatever you want. And they need to have a about how to open a door. Yeah one of our producers. i'm not gonna say which are to producers. Was always very very down on that episode. And she she has indicated. That was a mistake. That was a tough sell to the network. But i was like this. The title is just so incredible and it could just be so great and sometimes the professionals do know what they're talking about..

"So i just realized like don't i don't i don't know what the analogy is. It'd be like don't you know. Don't don't try to after the gold rush two minutes after you pick up a makuuchi qatar. Like it's not gonna happen. You gotta put miles on. So so. When i would perform i would. I would instead of doing this. Really kind of affected air sat. Stuart lee was just like i guess i'll just kind of be myself but more obnoxious and that'll be it. You know like and so the comedy that i did going forward the performances that i did whether it was cartoon based or pencil sharpening based or when i lived in beacon. My friends salmon. I started doing comedy shows and we would do like two man comedy routines that was just much goofy and much more dislike like on election profit. Makers it's just me exaggerated a little bit when you're doing comics you're gonna compare yourself to dan klaus eight. Oh and you're doing podcasting. You're gonna compare yourself to whatever ivory glasser rogan king joe rogan. Cher time sure marches. Tomorrow all the greats in pencil sharpening. You found a thing that you could be the if not the best in the at like certainly top ten old dirty bastard. There's no father to his style. I don't yeah. I don't know what tradition that was working in. I mean obviously. I guess it's literally humor. And i had some experience with that in brooklyn in the the crew i was rolling around with bashing it is kinda hodgman adjacent in a sense. Yeah yeah and he wrote the foreword to the book you know and he was an early booster early and enthusiastic booster of the pencil sharpening project. I mean that book did okay. But i think like a lot of the other things i've made. It was just a little confusing because it was. It was literally a pencil sharpening manual but obviously got crazier and crazier. The chapters went on and like the final chapters. How sharpen pencil with your mind and just has all. This was all these random asides and weird little tables and charts in it but but it was filled with actual pencil facts and knowledge. You know like you could read it and actually learn about pencils you know. We drove to an antique store that specializes in old office equipment in.

"It was kind of just kind of a joke. That kind of spiraled out of control on election profit makers we were making this joke. About how if someone if someone made it donate a listener wrote me and asked if i would ban their friend from listening to the podcast as a joke and i said yeah if you make a donation to voting rights. We'll do it. And then it just spiraled out of control and raise like almost thirty thousand dollars for voting rights by people banning. Each other from listening to the podcast. I've had so many fun professional or semi professional things that have just come out of dislike making a joke and then just like pushing it you know and then you said a little benchmark for yourself. I remember this very specifically with the pencil sharpening. Which was. I wonder if i could actually sell enough pencils where i could recoup the cost of all these pencil. Sharpener is i bought and then it was. I wonder if i could make a thousand dollars sharpening pencils and you just keep like increasing the benchmark just pushing the project pushing the project seeing seeing when the wheels will fall off. You know you just keep going with it. You just keep going with it and that's such a fun you know. Feels like the winds at your back. You know if the project is working. I mean i've. I've had a lot of projects that i thought like. Oh this is going to set. The world on fire published no response. Oh i guess that's not the one you never know what's gonna hit. You know like like. I made this cartoon about called relationships. Raleigh's geometric shapes of just complain about their home life and their love life. I thought this thing was going to be the biggest cartoon of all time and you know some people liked it but you know a lot of people didn't like it. I you know you just never know in order to sell it. You have to kind of a pencil specifically after iraq tour you have to have a certain sense of grainger about it. Did you feel though that you were. You're uniquely gifted at sharpening pencils. I feel like i got pretty. Damn good at sharpen pencils. Yeah and in addition to sharpening the pencils. I actually did my homework. And i learned a lot about the history of pencils and history of pencil sharpener. 's and i got pretty good at identifying different sharp sharp owners and i felt like i had a pretty good grasp on the vocabulary. Insofar as the project was satirical. I felt like. I had a pretty good grasp on the vocabulary. Because i was living in the hudson valley at the time which had a lot of artisanal stuff going on and i also because i had been reading in collecting all these mid-century technical manuals i felt like.

I've sold out once when get a within a year or two of get your were on breaking big conde. Nast was putting together a media package where they wanted to prove to add buyers. That conde nast was the hippest brand and they paid me three thousand dollars to make some conde nast cartoons in the kitchen. Where on style. And i did it because at that time i was still working as a freelance fact checker. I was not a professional cartoonist. And i i think at the time. I was still making them. My ex's computer.

I slept in in the same bed for a couple of extra months because we couldn't afford to bail on the rent. Yeah totally so. I think i took the conde nast money and used it to buy a laptop and i'm sure that's why i'm sure i remember that because that's probably how i justified it to myself. I'm not selling out. I'm in my career as a subversive political cartoonist. You know yeah. i can't think of. I wish i wish. I wish i had more stories like that. The census thing happens you've already had success with the comic by the time that came along. Yeah so what happened. Was i had said i was going to quit. Being political cartoonist.

"Us never made that leap to just being like. Yeah fuck it. I want to be successful. I remember wondering like rage against the machine in the most extreme example of this because they were a super political ban and then they became like super successful. You know and then there would be articles in indie rock magazines about. How zach de la rocha was caught shopping at banana republic. The guy needs clothes yet record letter by some clothes. Maybe he doesn't have time to go to this store. Spend eight hours looking for a pair of pants. That still fits sometimes want to go. Where the closer organized.

Yeah i want to be the biggest thing that the world has ever seen. of course i do. I want to be a huge successful rapper. Who everybody knows. I wanna make amazing movies that everybody loves the snow. I i mean i do. I mean they can go too far. Obviously like i'll totally side with martin. Scorsese everyone's yelling at scorsese. Because he says superhero movies are dumb and it's not real cinema. I agree with that. Like i'll take scorsese as an honorary gen-xer but i do think the attitude that young people these days have towards fame is an again. Now that i'm saying this out loud him thinking but maybe this is only a self selecting group because by definition. I'm old the only young creative people in the know about are going to be the ones who were so famous. An old man like meek and know about them. So maybe maybe this is all maybe this is all awash is an extremely pragmatic capitalistic reason. Why a lot of that shifted and it's because it's impossible to make money as musician anymore if you don't have to sell out to a corporation because nobody feels like they have to pay for music anymore. It's the only revenue stream is to be an t mobile commercial..

"Temp job was so much fun. I was cracking up so hard. Making animated show with john hodgman called dick town. We had so much fun. You know directing actors and being in the studio and add living on mike you know. It's just like really really fun. It was a lot of work but the fun stuff. I think most of the things that i've made i i can. I have a pretty good idea close to the close to the moment of creation of. Oh this is good or like. Oh i'm in. I'm onto something here either. Because i'm like cracking up or maybe i'm confusing myself in an interesting way. That feels fresh. You know i've made cartoons before that. I don't really understand how they work or you know what they're about but it's like really got me like really engaged in wide awake have made fake websites. That really make me laugh.

Doing what has made him or her successful. I think for me. I have a deep seated. I think i have a deep seated belief that is irrational and like i said before. I don't know where it comes from. A deep seated belief that either. I don't deserve to be successful or a don't deserve to be happy and i certainly don't deserve to be happy wellbeing successful now. That would be real. That'd be a real inversion of all that is holy right but the fucked up thing is like i've liked moments when i've been successful..

But i really do think that like experimental music and noise music. It's a lot like Drugs it's like. It's much more fun to do it yourself than to watch someone else do it or it'd be in the audience while someone does it. You know what.

Clearly i'm not a therapist but minor understanding of it. Is that like at least in a lot of people. It's it's rooted in a worry of movie at least like connected to imposter syndrome or some of these other ideas but like not wanting something to to get two big not wanting that one specific thing to get to popular. I think there could be some of that but again. I'm familiar with imposter syndrome. And i'm not. I don't think i have it not because i assume it's not because i'm such an ego maniac that i think i'm a genius in and i'm not an impostor. I don't think it's that. I think i had the thing that is below imposter syndrome. Which is maybe. I don't deserve to be content or happy. And so that's what leads to the self sabotage like. I know i literally wrote the greatest spoke about pencil sharpening techniques that that has ever existed or will ever exist. I know that get your were on meant a lot to many people during a really difficult time and i know that going deep was one of the best how to shows disguised as a comedy show. That will ever be made. I'll stand by those things you know. They were good things you know. None of them made me rich and none of them were breakout. Hits and of course. I never got the critical accolades secretly craved. Every night. in bed you know. But i don't know. I guess what i'm saying is i don't think what i have is imposter syndrome. I think just the self sabotage comes from something much more dire which is for one reason or another. I've convinced myself that there would be something wrong with the universe. If i was to actually be content and happy and i have to constantly work. You know like the thing..

"There is a wonderful movie for you to see right now called radioactive and it stars my guest Rosamund Pike as Madame Curie. So this is amazing. Russ welcome. Welcome to Nice. It's really really nice to see you I haven't seen you since. We'll know know exactly when you were pregnant. So I guess that son is walking around now being five or six years old exactly that he's five and he's he's little stuntmen so. I've got. Might follow his mother in some way. Yes. He vote him falling through a very big high everyday but. I won't go into that anyway in in watching this movie, which is so beautifully done to me. It's just Marchan as director and putting what this life is in not at all stodgy bio kick manner. No, it's great and I'm looking at you and I'm thinking of your journey first movie bond girl. End of the day, I can remember you in that saying this line probably going to get this. Wrong but it was I know all about you 007. Sex for, dinner. Death for breakfast CEST. Bang on I, remember it to. And now you're Madame Curie. Yeah this is no other bond girls done this I feel that I could say that. Madame Curie. Yes. No they may we'll try now but it's too late. This might might be true. Yes. She she. I mean, yeah, she was full medical creature I'm glad you picked up on I mean. I couldn't you couldn't make conventional bio-pic about Madame Curie she was too much of a rebel in a she was unruly element in has she discovered to unruly and she was Nanri element. So you needed margin direct with a bit of rock and roll and kind of approach that was going to kind of exploded the promises will she's got that and she's got kind of your mischief. We know are remember when I first met you I thought well. She's going to be quite imperious. You know she's she does stage working the said you're just mad. Which is which is Great. Mischief I really love that would be to mischief is a great great word condemn. Yeah I had a I had a birthday party recently thought was the kind of that was the code of conduct for the Party. was mischief not s mischief. As it should be you know even in a pandemic, but you know I wanna go back to this because again I said this radioactive is not like any bio pic I've seen why is that? What attracted you to it? You know everybody would say, yes, I'd love to play manicured. There's been a movie made back in the forties we're greer Garson, and Walter Pidgeon were claimed that but it has that look of okay. This is regulation they're not there seems like. In radioactive that all the rules breath. School is it. You know it's GonNa. Be Poked Science. Oh Woman who you know she she looked navy look at the pictures. She looks sadly conventional. She wasn't I mean look the to cross with her from the Solway conference they'll eminent scientists of the day. Rees looking very. Cameron, you can just see she can't be honest and she's talking to the personal her left and he's absorbed in what is she saying and? She just never played by the rules even when it was just sitting still from minute targets photograph taken the knife. WanNa play this woman. This does mischief to be had. And I met my John Nice. Yes, she's the right spurious and we can dress this up than people can think we're giving them some chased food period drama. Deliver you know we explode the be the boundaries and I felt that with anyone. Who any character who could legitimize you to to flush Ford it would be someone like Mary Carey with her brain, which would have had an inkling would've had an inkling of what the future could hold with this discovery of the phenomenon of radioactive not so. It was exciting to me. And I probably could even. Could have been pushed found from my case even.

Floyd, Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Aubrey Tamir, Rice Rees Gordon, Sandra Blan- and unfortunately the list can keep going and going and going, but we want to keep those names out. There want to keep this conversation going so people stay informed. And we don't want this to be got to be forgotten, so we're back in the situation again so Yes, like I said blogger owners committed to doing that and I am not just here by myself. I have a contassot. Guests with me here today to keep this conversation going. I am talking about. Pull a surprise and Emmy Award winning journalist. Tremaine, Lee. He is also MB. Correspondent in host of the into America podcast, so I am so glad to have him here with me today. They Ryan thank you so much revenue neutral appreciative. I WANNA. Start off this. This question was kinda going throughout. My might assume I knew I was GONNA. I was excited about this because I wanna Kinda. Give the listeners a different perspective that we don't get all the time with all this coverage of the protests and everything that's going on and not to say that you speak for all of news broadcasting. and I'm in production that worlds often find myself in this conversation as well. This is why this question is so important to me. But how do you deal with the idea of people asking why the media is covering the protests way their covenant, or you know certain situations. You find yourself in a maybe you don't have a choice of what the story is recovering that day. What's it? It depends I think the one thing that we do have choice over one one space did I control is how I centered the narrative. That I'm speaking to reporting on recovering so sometimes. The critique of the media is absolutely correct, because the media is not like any other institution. America, that's been a touched in racism, touched in bias touching all those things, so it's incumbent upon us working inside media. To make sure flicking the truest narrative possible, and sometimes that begins with our own experience in our own. To understand the language that's being spoken these communities right so so we're not relying on trucks and stereotypes ideally. We're we're connecting to the people in a different way and so I don't pay much mind to the critiques necessarily except for some of correct That's when we have to make sure that we are redoubling our efforts but I know from from. You know I don't I. Don't get many of those critiques because you know. I try to keep it as as true as possible I. Mean That's what I've done my entire career. So you know sometimes they're correct. Sometimes, they're not sometimes people. Are just shouting into the ether, your social media just right the shouting right, but I think the good thing is that the proof is always in the so that people can consume the information. The best dress with their concerns are. Right and speaking of getting out there and speaking the truth into America a fairly new podcast. She started up. Can you tell me about how that started and wise that important to you? Into America at this point I think we're on episode Twenty Six maybe twenty seven in the the whole idea behind into Americans really get outside of our bubbles in really go out into America. In an approach politics policy in a different conway. Along and I worked for MSNBC PROUDLY SO but you know the twenty four hour news cycle. It's kind of like a horse. Race Times. If you're not careful the way we. The Lens from which review politics? It's also who's up now. WHO's fallen behind? You know it's daily drama as opposed to the way politics policy actually impact the lives of everyday people, and so the goal of into America was to do just that. Go out into America. And speak directly to people about their concerns, their needs but also how the backdrop of policy is really impacting them. You know and I really do believe that is the kind of thing. I worked my entire life trying to trying to do right always out there with the people and trying to tell the people's story. Our care deeply about the most vulnerable among US marginalized community, most certainly a black folks in this country, but also the poor any race the marginalized anyways so into America. We've been trying to. Obviously it's shifted a bit through. I Kobe nineteen right so now we're. Quest heard in with the engaged with how people are You know the fallout from Kobe nineteen whether it's the the emotional stuff with his health, related impact was the economic impact and now in. This Arab uprising rebellion in protests. We've shifted again to to address in all of the concerns around systemic racism the the the initial ideals of white supremacy that in so many ways to guide this country. The protests respect all of those things, so that's a long answer, but that is into America.

'cause I've I've seen my publisher used Pittsburgh things but it sounds. It's embarrassing when you're at right back to you have to tell them that down. I'm sorry then Gracie's rubbish really say that you're just trying to butter him up for something but we don't know that something is true lies that's the best the best introduction at Arrowhead and USO. Thank you very much. So you've been busy anyway since we last spoke very very busy. Yes to book since we last spoke only one of them's hit the shelves SOFA which paranormal whales. And thanks to the whole lockdown situation. I'm I'm writing a third book as well at the moment so busy. Busy busy times while I was going to ask you both actually because some of the authors that we spoken to said so this is actually giving them the time. They need to Roy almost without distraction. Another say they just can't seem to write a word despite being locked in the house. I mean my my plan for this year after finishing the last book wants to take a break because out recently and it's weird how things happen is the. I finished the last book and Said Right. That's me done for the you and now I'm locked in the house. Nothing else to do so I'm straight back into it and it's perfect because I am I. I think if you're right you've got to be a bit an antisocial sword. Anyway sit in the House on your own all the time. So being locked in isn't isn't that bad. I mean I'm quite lucky to live in a rural part Wales. So you know it's going to walk in the forests. Come home to some right in so touch word. It's working out quite nicely for me. See I Lake Gung Ho and busy the first couple of weeks. Now I don't care. She creates lists which called honeydews. And it's basically a list of says. Honeydew this honey do that. I and so yes I've had my lists and luckily because she's lost interest in sort of all. All Things House related my list of waned as well. So I'm I'm feeling great. I'm loving life. Houses is spotless now. Then let's been cleared and you've you've done everything that needs at jewel this it's called me being lazy. There's two things I need to do the left to do is I'll get done within a day if my mind to it but I just haven't put my mind to give you a nice prom about it. The other day by painting the whole stays in London. I'll tell you what you saw the two things left and I and I said what are you going to do today and you said something and I said okay. Well I guess we. We won't do that today then or that today than in your late. Now that was that was a reverse psychology thing. You're expecting me to take that where you and say no. I'm going to anyway but I should've known because psychology is study of the mind and well thank you very much. We'll just think about mark. I think you're going to be a busy man this. I think back to work exactly. I'm going to have to get the jobs done just so that I can shut your up anyway. Let's get back onto the book. In the description of the book on Amazon It mentions Wales as being the most haunted country in the world. Is that a true statement. And if so why do you say that so it kind of is although that statement is backed to to the button on the backside a few times now and? I wish I'd left tab I wrote when I was first. Sort of pitching the book to the publish. The idea was is. It's just like a greatest hits of whales as famous supposedly haunted places. It is claimed that Welles is the most haunted place in the universe but it's not quite a straightforward as that it's based on things like Wales is supposed to have the most castles willed Europe or whatever it is and so based on that if everyone of those costs ghost in it then it would be the most haunted place in the world with those told Castles. If you can follow that kind of that kind of roots and they probably all do have some sorta aspect of it don't they. There's always a story. Oh so and so this and I went there and I tripped on the second. Step coming down and it was a ghost that did it because somewhere in its history. Something happened on that. Staircase or whatever. So Yeah I get it. Yeah that's where the Norman Lords had his head chopped off another ladies pushing me down the steps. Yes you kind of argue that whales the most. Hold your country in the world but. I'm pretty sure you used that example somebody in in in Ireland or France wherever you might be probably put a good argument as well Wales. Wales is the most of the world today in the book. There's loads of amazing stories in and you've broken the book into sections new. Yes well it starts with the appropriate. Nfl CASTLES CAUSES. A big part. Whales to be honest I could have quite easily filled. Entire Booklet Castles. But that wasn't that wasn't the brief so then another section on sort of places with historical context to Wales. I mean obviously castles restorick places like those are the connection to our our industrial heritage. This is the places that really make Wales known one on Thompson. Hotels very popular place for Ghost to go pubs and hotels. Let's make the old joke about two kinds of spirits in the pub. Every time I mentioned pubs one on the grants that are mansions and the the visit of real places. The the elite would have lived in in the past which usually national trust properties and wrapped it up with one on cultural landmarks. That's places like the theater and places we're just supposed to be haunted by opera stars and artists and then that side of things you talk about an amazing story in section about Rutland Castle. A legend based around a real data is it and it's a beautiful and yet tragic tale. That actually sort of encompasses a supernatural and paranormal. Can you tell our listeners? A little bit by story. Yeah well in the late eighteenth century when the first gothic piece of fiction was published by Horace Walpole it was published anonymously and the idea was these works of fiction because it was a work of fiction. We're sort of long lost tales that somebody had found put out into the world to sort of schedule with and in Wales. We had this book of Welsh legends. Which was published anonymously in eighteen? O Two it was written by someone called William Hill. It was probably written as a work of fiction. But as with these things you can never know pursuit in or whether it was based in reality and the story is as you mentioned tragic one. I'll also the down slightly for the sake of this podcast but the princess throng. The castle came across this very mysterious night. Use called the night of the blood red plan because he had a blood red plume in the top of his arm old black and he was described as very much like the hero in Rom Com. Or something you know you had those. GonNa Treat me is and that. Kinda thing and when she saw him it was just I. Can you know that magical? Something scary but something. What appeal in about this night but they had a feat and visit. She was singing or playing music. Whatever she was doing all the night and he was gone now she was due to be married and it was quite an important marriage because it had been arranged by the parents by the kings and this marriage would unite whales at the time. Wales was broken up by feuding warlords. Warlords feud in parts of Wales. And the idea was that by her Marianna prince that would unite to parts of Wales however she been distracted by this night with. Greenie is and just just couldn't get this man out of your head as a way to distract us up. She went hunting and who hunting and she was pretty good and she caught a deer with who I think was narrow. T- could deer but didn't kill it in the run off into the forest she gave chase on your host and by the time she found this night had fallen and she found herself lost in the forest totally alone until who should turn up surprise surprise but this night with a blood drive clue emerged from the trees saw this damsel in distress and offered to take her home so when he took it back to the castle and he met the king and the king was very very pleased that this kind gentlemen night had gone out of his way to bring his daughter back safely to him. He was invited to stay in the castle now. Obviously having the two of them together and not castle didn't do much good for helping you know. Forget about this and it was the opposite in the end he said look. I'd I'd better go because your husband vs on his way. This is quite a big word in. I can't I can't stick around a mess this up for you. He gave her a ring. This is what things do get Pasco. You gave her a ring and said look. If you ever need me you can summon me with this ring. And the idea was if she was in trouble in years to come do that. She couldn't use that waited. Minute's pretty much so he went. She called him back and he said look okay. I'm here now. We're going to have to escape. We're GONNA have to elope after runaway because there's no way they're gonNa let us be together that night under the cover of darkness. Ek sneaked out of their room and they decided to then decide. He had a cargo on the revenue by going to escape onto the was. It sneak out the guards. Run down to the corker and sailoff. Didn't take them long. Though until God's were looted they were trying to sneak off and a party of its of dogs and everything's chasing after them and they ran as quickly as they could towards the river as they got their chief felt a hand. The princess felt a hand on her back and turned around to see who had caught her. One of the chases at calder world. Give a knife to defy. Should've mentioned this earlier. Actually worked will get a knife to defend yourself with. I want you tuned without thinking. He shouted stab him and she stabbed this man with the knife killing him. She Killed The pursuer. This is much more dramatic in the real story that turns out it was a father that she just killed jumped on the car. Rental and the two of them sailed off that escaped putting tragic circumstance. Because you know she. She'd killed her father trying to escape and as she was on the Carl. Cryan obviously quite upset. But what happens with world? Just laughter didn't consoler. He was laughing. And it wasn't your normal. It was quite a demonic and turns out he then transformed into a diva who is mission. I know that this probably isn't real but he turned into this team. Yes he pretty much said that. Look this whole thing was a setup and the reason I did it is to make sure that whales fighting with itself. Wales's at war that's more people killing themselves killing each other. That's more deaths. That's all music for the data. That's exactly what he wants and with that he stuck his trident into the princess through.

Who Is Isaac Levido?

"At the end of this month. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union and in so doing fulfill the key election pledge of conservative prime minister. Boris Johnson. To you get brexit done. We have followed that. He's paralyzed blocked. Dinner Lean capable of functioning as Anaconda that swallowed the neither moving one way on the other. He's lean except of course that brexit will not get done on January thirty first Brexit exit will not get close to done on January thirty first if and when Brexit can truly be said to have got done it will be still further pointless tedious Diaz wasted years from now but none of this matters to the Prime Minister and party. Who promised to do it? What does matter at least to them is that they won a thumping majority in last month's general election for that the Tories Oak considerable thanks and have doubtless already paid considerable? Money to a rashly officially beaded thirty something from Port Macquarie New South Wales who served as the Party's campaign director. His name is Isaac Lovato. It is. It's always hard to know how much credit to extend to such figures. Strategists spin-doctors string-pullers special advisers. It seems reasonable to assume the people capable of subtly manipulating public opinion in favor of their paymasters Also able to cunningly inflate their own reputation for being able to do so but there is little doubt that Levino presently basks in the warmest regard of the recently returned conservatives Dominic Cummings Boris orest Johnson's senior adviser and a man not known for self deprecation in much. The same way that circles are not known for being square has described Libido As a hundred times better at running campaigns than me so who exactly is is a collado and how did he get here. La Vida learned his trade from his fellow. Australian Lynton Crosby a veteran political strategist. Who has made something of a speciality of coordinating somewhat belligerent and populist campaigns for parties wrightwood of center in Australia and elsewhere though crosby's record in the UK is not one of unalloyed success excess? He did twice help. Boris Johnson get elected mayor of London no small accomplishment in a city not generally hospitable to conservatives Isaac veto worked on Crosby's twenty seventeen general election campaign for Theresa May an enduring. Listen perhaps in what not to do as a nation. We face the most important potent five years. I can remember. That is why I took the decision to call a general election so that we have a strong and stable leadership we need old to see us through brexit and beyond but La Vida made his name properly back in Australia in two thousand eighteen where he served as deputy director of the Liberal Party party. Australia's annoyingly named Conservative Party in May two thousand nineteen the Liberals led by incumbent. Prime Minister Scott Morrison steeled themselves also a general election which nobody believed they could win. With the apparent exception of Isaac La Vida veto helped create a strategy which relied on a ruthless roofless focus on the merits of the prime minister such as they were the shortcomings of the opposition leader and brutally simple messaging. It was a template readily adaptable optimal to Boris Johnson. Jeremy Corbyn and getting brexit done as is proper for a habit to of the shadows. LA- Vito has done little press press and let little be known about him. The impression conveyed by colleagues however is far from that of a fire breathing bully reports to Picton Ernest. Decisive voices won't see working eighteen hour days and maintaining a clear focus on what is required for victory undistracted by the gaffes bloopers or short circuits of the candidate which in a campaign for Boris Johnson must require a superhuman serenity libido and his pair of young New Zealander Digital Gurus. Ben guerin and Sean topping also understood that social media campaigns need to be effective rather than outwardly sophisticated. They were clearly on embarrassed to be seen pushing what looked to anybody but angry. Daily Mail reading pensioners like absurd amateurish. Nonsense Libido was not however shy about removing other senior Tories from the spotlight. At the end of Shepherd's Crook early in the campaign at related would housing and Mannequin Jacob. Rees Mogg intoned some ill-advised remarks about the victims of the two thousand seventeen grenfell tower disaster. I think if either of us were in a fire whatever the brigade said we would leave the burning building. It just seems the common sense thing to do and it is such a tragedy that that didn't happen but I didn't do with race or class. Rees MOGG has has bailey been heard from since and for that much.

Europe Is Burning U.S. Wood As Climate-Friendly Fuel, But Green Groups Protest

"World leaders are gathering at a U. N. climate summit in Madrid this week to talk about how to reduce greenhouse emissions in the search for alternatives to fossil fuel. Some some countries have now turned to one of the oldest energy sources around would some are importing from the United States calling it clean and renewable but some environmentalists. Say this makes no oh sense. NPR's Dan Charles has the story on a soggy field in eastern North Carolina. Jason Too and his crew loggers cutting trees threes and sorting the logs into piles depending on their size. And what kind of would they are poplar. Sweet Gum Elm right there. Some piles will go into plywood. Some will become puffy absorbent fiber in baby diapers and then there's the least valuable pile the small limbs tops of hardwood trees. It's basically a trash. Should we would've normally hauled that back out in the woods and just left it. But now there's a new market for that Wood Pellet Mills they've expanded across the southeast over the past decade. They'll take this would crush it and pressed into little pellets. Ready for burning fuel the landowners. Getting some by we're getting some production is just an all around good deal do most of these pellets. Millions of tons each year. We'll get shipped to Europe where burned in power plants because some European governments are offering financial subsidies cities to burn these pellets. Instead of say coal it's supposed to help fight climate change. Here's Seth Ginther. Executive Director of the industry group that represents Wood Pellett companies. The carbon benefits are tremendous burning. Would also biomass does release lots of carbon dioxide the greenhouse gas. But the idea behind had the subsidies is you can let farce grow back. And as they do they'll recapture the carbon dioxide from the air and stored in their branches and roots again so it's considered renewable lable just like wind or solar the European Union literally just pass something known as the Renewable Energy Directive to and biomass sustainable biomass ass was unequivocally included as part of what can meet renewable energy goals but environmental groups are challenging that decision in court. They say the idea that large scale. wood-burning is carbon neutral is based on bad math and to explain exactly why Adam collect from the environmental group Dogwood Alliance takes me to another patch of land North Carolina near the town of Williamson. I know it doesn't look like much but we're gonNA take a walk. It's covered with bushes and little trees as maybe ten feet tall. In the south. We call it a briar patch but yet on paper this is a forest for years ago really was a forest with big trees rees then it was locked some of it went to make wood pellets. So let's count the carbon emissions accurately. Colette says when the big trees were cut they stopped opt capturing carbon dioxide from the air that benefit was lost at least temporarily and some of the carbon they'd previously stored was released into the air when the wood pellets were burned and as tree roots decomposed. But you won't see any of that in the official calculations of greenhouse emissions. He says none of it's ever been counted in any of our like emissions counting in the US or in Europe that's because the forest eventually will grow back and recapture that lost carbon but it could take a century for that to happen now. Seth Ginther from the US Industrial Pellet Association says his industry should not be blamed for those carbon emissions because wood pellets are not the reason forests wrists are cleared. These are lands that are being harvested for Sawed Timber for housing for paper and for other things what we're taking is is the the byproduct of that in facto independent forestry experts. Say That's not completely true. Their data shows that the wood pellet industry is competing for some of the same. Would that might go for making paper or diapers and it's pushing up prices for that. Would Adam Collette from Dogwood. Alliance thinks it's persuading some small landowners to harvest their trees. You have have more knocks on those doors. More telephone calls saying hey I'll give you X.. Number of dollars for your trees. What Colette wants is for officials to knock on those doors with a different different message encouraging landowners to maintain forests expand them? Our forests are young. They're degraded and what that means. Is that the potential Henschel to suck carbon out of the atmosphere of force in the U._S.. South is enormous. Those forests are some of the best climate solutions. We have he says if they keep growing Dan. Charles N._p._R.

Evo Morales begins Mexico exile as senator claims interim presidency

"Bolivia's former president. Evo Morales arrived in Mexico today to live in exile. He resigned Sunday amid protests that began after serious areas flaws were found. In last month's election now the senator next in the Bolivian Line of succession has announced. She will assume the presidency and peers. Philip Reeves is in the capital city the of Lopez and before we begin Phillip Here's what we know Morales resigned. His government collapsed anyone constitutionally designated to replace him step down. So what have you learned about this senator. WHO's announced her intention to lead the country? She's called Janina. She's fifty two. She's the second vice president. She's a lawyer with a media background and she's a fierce critic of Morales she had earlier announced that Bolivia's congress was going to convene this afternoon to formerly decide who would stand in as interim president. And here's the thing. Allies of Morales hold a majority in Congress and they don't necessarily want her a lot. All of them didn't show up today. So the problem forming a quorum yet despite this she went ahead and took control of the Senate and assumed the mantle of interim president saying she wants elections as soon as possible now members of Morales Party. The Movement for socialism were there when she made that announcement. It's not clear to me at this point whether her move will stick or whether Congress will accept this given the absence of a quorum. There's certainly been an angry reaction from morality supporters some some of whom tried to reach the Congress building after the announcement was made and they were met by police and soldiers firing tear gas at them. You've underscored the challenges that you'll have with all of the Morales support still in Bolivia's Congress. What do we know about Bolivians more? Generally well this is a very unstable volatile point in the history of this country. You just have to travel around this city to see that a lot of roads blocked off by makeshift barricades Arkadiusz. The city's pretty much shut down in the city today. The were very large numbers of police on the streets in full riot gear. The army's also on the streets it's those people who've been protesting for several weeks against morale is after the election. That was last month are celebrating. Because he's gum but but others are angry. Many of the people at the demonstration that was held today by supporters of Morales in the city are indigenous. Bolivians like Madonna's himself. They revere him because he did much to lift. Indigenous people out of poverty during his fourteen years nearly in power but one particularly disturbing. Something happened during that. Protest military jets flew very low and very fast over the crowd on multiple occasions while I was there and this was evidently meant as a show of force but it didn't seem to unsettle them one of their chance. Was You know we are not afraid. Given what you've described even with this interim turn presidency. Has the danger passed. No by no means I mean this is a very unstable situation. People here are worried about that. I spoke to one woman even today. Who didn't or doesn't align herself with Morales or with the opposition? She says she's no faith. That civilian politicians can resolve this situation. Adamantly and settler leader that can really manage a peaceful transition to new elections. She says she's worried. She says she's afraid and from the scenes gene today. I think she might be right to feel that way. That's NPR's Philip Rees reporting from La Paz Bolivia. Thank
