"Thanks for being with us. I'm Rick Lawler, and we're joined by Katie MacFarland, the former deputy national security advisor at the White House and the author of Revolution, Trump Washington And we, the people, Katie Great to have you with us this morning. Well, it's a pleasure and an iron, thank you. And with the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We've been looking at her career in her life through a number of different perspectives with different guests this morning. And I wanted to speak with you about her role as a mentor and an inspiration to women. And I have an audio clip that is from Justice Ginsburg and I think it kind of summarizes how things started for her. I had the idea of being a lawyer. Pretty good thing. You could get a job and work for pay. But you could also help society in tune with almost basic I wasn't really appreciative of the hurdle that I would face 1956 when I started lost. Well, there was no anti discrimination law. No title. Seven. Certainly no title. Nine and employers were totally upfront and saying, We don't want any lady boulders in the shop. We don't want any lady lawyers in this shop. Well, simply, they're a threat about it Look better. Ginsberg. She was born and it is appropriate that we're talking about this work today because it's also the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. When she was born. There was just a decade after women got the right to vote, and you know, she broke through uses it every step of the way. I mean, she was a woman in a man's world of every single point, but true fate against work and the clip you just played. She was just doing it for herself. For personal ambition and her own advancement. She did it for what she believed in and that I think, is what made all the difference that made her such a powerful warrior. Um she's my mother's age. If my mother lived, and I, I was born 30 years after women's right to vote, But even then there were not equal rights for women. We didn't have equal rights for education, scholarships, jobs. And as Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, there was no equal opportunity for a whole lot of other titles, things when I was a freshman, and she w. I needed a part time job to pay my way through college. And the only jobs open to women at that time was a waitress. You could be a circular or your secretary. Tell through a serious of lucky breaks. I got to be the night shift secretary in the West Wing office of Henry Kissinger in the Nixon administration and I, My job was to type the president's daily brief and it would be revised overnight given to Nix on the next morning. I was able to advance up the career ladder at the White House. By the time I last seven years later, with a college degree in half of a graduate degree, I was the first woman to be the research assistant to Henry Kissinger. But even then the only jobs opens two women were jobs is related to man you could type for man because the secretary for Man, you could work for a man you seen assistant, including the man that you might have gone to college with. You could be their secretary. And so for Ruth Bader Ginsburg and even my generation coming 20 years later discrimination harassment. Par for the course. But you learn pretty quickly that complaining probably got you fired. So you figured out how to move that hasn't inspite of it. Might. You've grown daughters who were classmates of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, granddaughter's in New York. When I talked to them about things were like when I was their age, their amazement and yet both of them are women in men's world once and check the others in the military and no trail Blazers in their own right. When they came tonight, swelling in ceremony at the White House in 2017, Deputy national security adviser. I mean, I told them about, you know, the first time I walked into these officers I never dreamed a woman could be the boss. Never trained the woman. We're right. The president's intelligence briefings. And yet here we are, and they looked at me thinking we'll achieve last couple of people who have held your job have all been women. So what? Goddamn it really was. It was really kind of talking about a fairy land thinking about at that point. I wanted to make them which is in America and something woke teenagers and millennials Don't sing down and in America we evolved. We went perfect it our founding and we're not perfect now. But every step we have advance and expanded people's rights and opportunities and open the American dream for everyone, And I think that's what I found. So setting about the division and political dysfunction today, especially the cancel culture. People want to destroy American history and culture in order to save us and for those of us who have seen the extraordinary thing about the women. You realize that you will if you don't destroy because when you destroy you don't get to rebuild. You just get more destruction. We've seen so much division in the country and it's going to get much worse before it gets any better. Obviously, with the election coming up, and one of the neat things about Justice Ginsburg was her relationship. With Justice Antonin Scalia and they would go to the opera together. They both loved cooking. They were very close friends, but they were at 180 degree opposite positions when it came for their views on the law. And you know you came through a time when you saw the Congress. You saw the Senate you saw President Reagan. I mean, you work with President Reagan. He was at opposite ends of the spectrum with Tip O'Neill, speaker of the house, but they could get together after work and have a drink that that's gone now. And how do we bring that back? Well, I write about this in my book, and I think a lot of it is what happens to America, every 40 or so years and we have a political revolution. And it's when the Washington forces you know the establishment political parties When the Washington establishment of permanent government they get so disconnected to the people. Other people say Well, you know, get out of our way. We want to replace you with people who will answer to our needs and people who during the results, they're not Republicans or Democrats. There's just people who don't like Washington. And I think that that's what we're going there. Now what comes after that. Is the kind of friendship that Reagan had in the Reagan revolution. And it is with people of opposite political parties, but who feel they want the best for their nation? Right now? You have to wonder a lot of these people exploited in Washington. Are they just trying to hang on to the power? Are they just trying to exploit others so they can say insurance? What do they really have The best interests of the nation of hurt?.

"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country.

But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center.
