Bank robber, a Chicago bank robbery suspect gave a teller his state issued ID along with a withdrawn floor way his state issued ideas that anything like a D e B T card. No, I don't. I don't think I think it was his regular driver's license. Why would it say a driver's license? Right? Why is it saying a state issued I D If it's a driver's license? That's also a state issued idea. Is it not? I know it is, but it's It's very imprecise. Mm. And that's a good question. How you can look at just how the police log had documented. This is why you developed sources in the police department. Right, Taylor? Yes. So you could you so you can find out what was really used. Is that a dig at me that I didn't find the source of whether or not it wasn't a BT or an I D?

If he wanted to make a deposit or withdraw the employees then gave floor is a blue withdrawal slip on which he scrawled $10,000 and filled up his account number as 123456789. Before handing it back.

Dr Katz When we went to break we're about to talk about the founding up North Way discussed the laws of Virginia three weeks ago. People who go and listen to that. That's England transplanted. What is it that the pilgrims had in mind? And when did the Pilgrim's become the Puritans? And how did they diverge? And when does the Salem compact come into this conversation? Well, I think it's important to understand that James, the first of England was really attempting to create a culture built around the Church of England. Andre English, Christianity on and then what happened in the midst of that was that you have two ends of a spectrum kind of cut off from from inclusion in that one are the Puritans on one side, the other are those who choose to hang on to their Catholicism's And on the product inside the Puritans and the pilgrims were ones who really struggled with this idea of being you know, essentially forced into into the Church of England. The Pilgrim's being separatist left first went to the Netherlands and, um, realize that their Children were becoming Dutch more than they leaving behind English tradition. So what's very interesting about the pilgrims? And then the Puritans that followed them is that they were very much you know, Uh, Honoring the King and stand and Parliament of England. But they did struggle with the religious, um, on church structure that had been established. And so the pilgrims ended up coming to the northern colonies and the pilgrims being much more separatist, much more distinct in their attempt. T O be separate from the Church of England, the Puritans who came after them and again. There's a lot of discussion is how one really makes a distinguished distinguishes between these two groups. The Puritans. Many of them were from London. Many of them were involved in commerce and business. Many of them had been trained at Cambridge University, Cambridge University in that at that time, tend to be the kind of intellectual center Puritanism. And what they wanted to do in this new colony or new colonies in the north was to really establish Christian Republic, Um, still under, um You know the King and Parliament of England but to establish a kind of government again, As I said earlier, that might Be a a model for how Christians would live with and among one another, they established the first university in the colonies, Harvard University. Established. You know, in the name of John Harvard, who was a Puritan from Stratford upon Avon and in 16 36. This this college became a university was established.

California Is Days Away From A Regional Stay-At-Home Order
"Governor Gavin Newsom introduced the new framework for the regional stay at home order. He expects most of the state to fall under the more stringent requirement in just a matter of days. Bay Area has not been hit quite as hard as the rest of the state, but lags behind by only a week or two. Many California leaders are angered by the impending restrictions. KCBS is making Goldsby reports Republican Congressman Tom McClintock aired his grievances on the House floor. Today, McClintock began his time on the House floor by mocking California's curfew. Governor Newsome made a groundbreaking discovery regarding covert 19 last week. Apparently, it has learned to tell time. Thus acting under the strictest of scientific standards. He's ordered Californians to run home before 10 P.m.. Lock their doors and hide from this insidious virus until daybreak. Unfortunately, Cove it doesn't seem to be following the curfew. He cited statistics that show the majority of the people who get covert 19 recover and compared the governor's new restrictions to the hysteria of the Salem witch trials, saying the fever needs to break in California every shopkeeper who defies these petty tyrants. Every parent who confronts their school officials every person refuses to submit to the dysfunctional, dystopian world created by the lockdown left. Brings us one step closer to that turning point.

"salem" Discussed on Chat Sematary
"Other you know and i thought originally. That's what they were. Setting up is like oh matt is gonna be unfortunately someone who's had to deal with this but they don't they don't do anything with it until that that's weird. That weird scene with mike. Yeah i don't. I don't think i've ever met a gay person who's also attracted to dead people. Yeah i don't think. I have either and it felt like you know. Maybe they give us one scene of him out with someone whether or not it's in salem. Lot or he goes elsewhere. Because i believe in the piece of narration. Ben mentions that he kind of goes out outside of salem slot so even just like one quick scene with him out at a bar or something would've handled that much better than did. yeah or when. He's trying to tell the sheriff's about what happened with mike when mike died and the sheriff shows up that maybe you get the impression that people in town don't they don't believe him they don't want to treat him as an equal something that could have been done with it instead of just setting up this really bizarre seeing. That's where you get the horror in this many series. Yeah yeah that. And then the weird thing we're larry. Crockett is trying to feel his daughter. Just out of the blue. I mean we're i think an hour and a half into this thing or something by that point and it's like what. Where did that come from. And you didn't need it either. Like i felt like they were trying to justify why he was such a jerk to dud. And it's like noah he's he just be jerked to a grown man flirting with his teenage daughter. Like that's enough like he doesn't need to be having an affair with his daughter. Yeah it's bizarre. Some of the choices they made but overall for the most part i think matt's character played off fairly well minus those couple things that they could have done better. But as far as how his character impacted the actual story that was more important than whether or not he's a gay man. You know it's something that is obviously important to his character and who he is as a person but for the purpose of the story it felt like something that was thrown in there and could have been handled better which is kind of a wall of this. Yeah i feel like that a lot of good ideas that may be. I don't know maybe. They were rushed in production or something. This feels like an early draft of something that could have been really good. Yeah i was really disappointed that it wasn't better than i was hoping because there are other stephen king adaptations that i've watched. That don't necessarily look as good from a production standpoint. But i enjoyed them so much more because they either knew exactly how can't be to be or they just got more of the story down better than this did. And you know. I'd easily say that. I enjoyed the nineteen seventy one more than this. Two thousand four one. Yeah and just little anchors into the characters that you get the original adaptation for instance in the original adaptation. I think they do a great job of having been in susan's romance that not only do feel a connection between the two of them but susan also kind of has their own life and you start to like susan. As a character outside of her connection bend whereas in this one susan susan's and bins romance was virtually existent and you almost never saw or heard from susan outside of how she related to bend or she related to her ex boyfriend at basically this fails bechtel test in other words. Yeah to say the least. Yeah you know. I don't know how much more i have to really touch on with this. Is there anything that you want to make note of before we go. Actually i do have one thing. There was a nice little kuchar not in this. And that's all. I got for you guys as far as you know little things like that. Yeah there's the cujo nod. Like i said i felt like father callahan. Framing device may have been kind of a nod to what happens in the dark tower. Yeah although not much of one. I feel like there might have been a couple of other easter eggs. Yeah overall i would say anyone who's a king completion. Est might enjoy this Anyone who is more into kind of high higher fantasy vampires. you're not necessarily looking for just. The horror might enjoy all the scenes with vampires crawling around all things it. It doesn't hit the home run. could have. I'll say that you know one and one last thing too is We didn't really talk about is. I actually did enjoy rutger. Hauer i thought rug is. The master was a lot of fun. But i felt like seeing the masters so much actually took away from him. Yeah we do see him a lot more in this and that introduction to mistress kind like okay. he's here you know there's kurt barlow and because of how donald sutherland played striker. It felt like maybe they should've waited and done something along. The lines of the original adaptation with the kurt barlow veal and i read that in. Rob lowe's book. He mentioned that when they had that sort of conversation between the two of them while he's in the coffin he just started making up stuff and didn't actually know his lines. And i was like that is wild but also might explain a lot about this ad. Yeah yeah that makes a lotta sense. That that whole scene where he talks to done at the at the dump which is the first time we we see him. also just felt weird and extraneous. Like it definitely felt like the natural introduction for him much like in the seventy nine would have been a at mark's mom's house when he flies through the window that if that was the first time we saw him he would have been this incredibly creepy and powerful presence. But because the first time we saw him he's just hanging out at the dump like a detracts from from that a bit. Yeah this one did a lot of weird things but as far as ratings go. I don't have the original rated in letterbox. Because i think. I started using it more shortly after that and did not realize that they had miniseries in letterbox. But i ended up giving this a one and a half out of five. Yeah i'm go as high as two. But i'm pretty much in line with like and i just do that because i have a soft spot for bad movies i think. Oh i mean as someone who is watching many of them for this podcast. I can understand that. Oh i bad. that's the fun. Thing with king is his adaptations. Run the gamut from being hilariously bad to being intentionally campy to being incredibly good movies. You know everything. In between a few things that are just unwatchable but for the most part even the bad ones are usually pretty fine. This had some moments but it was kind of a slog to get get through watching it again. There were points where i was really tempted to fast. Forward it if. I wasn't really watching it to to talk about it. I can picking up the ramon being like now now..
"salem" Discussed on Chat Sematary
"Bins experience as a kid inside the marston house on one hand. It doesn't make sense logically. 'cause in the book it's all the marston houses already been abandoned for twenty years and so in these other kids dare him to go into it makes sense. That's the kind of thing that happens. In small towns like go into the local haunted house and bring something back but in this having huby marston still alive. All the kids were like. Hey break into that guy's house that's dare get doesn't it just didn't seem as realistic on the flip side. They tell such a disturbing story when he gets in there. That i think it. It really sets up a lot of internal trauma for ben but again being torn in. The book pins internal trauma. Is that his wife died in a car accident where ben was driving and they don't touch on that at all in the movie the sheriff mentions at once when he's doing a background check on ben but that's it and they don't they don't deal with that it also. I'm kind of torn. I think. I think that word at least for this been miers But i'm not sure that it necessarily worked better than what was in the source material. Would you love. I think from the horror perspective that works really well to have this childhood trauma. That sort of comes back. And he has this interest in the town again which causes some tension between him. And susan and matt even a little low a little less so with matt but for me. The thing about the flashbacks was that they were so hard to watch. Because of the stylistic difference. Yeah yeah that was again another thing that was just very two thousand four the throwing the orange filter on it and and it was like very frantic and i think that would have worked if they hadn't done all of those things if they had just made it. You know these kids and everything's a little more frantic than what's going on in the present day so you can distinguish it as a flashback. That works better for me than just changing the whole style of how the thing looks because that is a little too jarring and it didn't look all that great. Yeah yet those were probably the worst looking parts of the whole thing and they also undercut it because later you know that's that's been bins trauma the whole time that he thinks that that little boy or he knows that little boy was dying in the bath tub and he could have saved him but he was so scared when he kept hearing. Help me help me. He thought it was a ghost and he just kind of clammed up when comatose and then susan after. She's a vampire is like ben. I did some research. There's no way that boy could have still been alive and it just completely undercut all of his trauma especially with her being dead already at that point. It wasn't even like a bonding moment between the two of them. I don't know i don't know there. Was this weird choices throughout this whole thing. Yeah i try to give some constructive criticism with things. I don't like as far as the adaptations and the books go. But i do want to at least touch on some of the things. We enjoyed a little more about this adaptation in the big one for me was andre broker's role as matt. Yes he's not in it as much in the original adaptation. From what i remember but i think like you said the way they use. His character makes sense for the way. They've changed the story. Yeah yeah that probably was the best change me. Is he a phenomenal actor and really searched kind of you know be the heart of the group like he's the lynch pin holds everyone together. I also love that. He doesn't actually enjoy benz writing all that much either. Yeah yeah and which is kind of an interesting Change that they did to is on the book. Ben is a novelist and then in the series. He's a journalist. And you have this whole story. Where his reporting has uncovered crimes that american marines committed in afghanistan. and that. that's what he writes about. I think he does still write books. But it does seem like they lean more non fiction than fictionalized novels right. And i kept waiting for that to play a bigger role because that's such a big change in his character and they talk about it a lot you know. There's the old man and his house who read the book and hates him because he called those marines out and the kids. Bring it up when he's talking to matt's class and so i kept waiting for there to be something more to that and that didn't really go anywhere either. Which is maybe a thing. I don't know there were a lot of this that it felt like it felt like there were earlier drafts of this. That kept that went slightly different directions and that they didn't really excise all that when it went because it seems like if you were going to set up this whole thing with afghanistan that that would be bins trauma that we're dealing with. Yeah it felt like that should have played a bigger role. Maybe we get some flashbacks of that too because we probably got what at least three flashbacks of him as a kid going into the house and what he experienced but then you have this whole other trauma that gets mentioned largely in passing and again i think y i liked matt's character so much was because we knew everything we needed to know about matt. He felt like a more well rounded character. It's like okay. He's the high school english teacher now but he was benn's eighth grade english teacher so he's moved up you know. He got sort of that bump from middle school to high school as a teacher and he takes a while to sort of understand and accept everything. That's going on in salem slot but because he is an english teacher like you said he knows all of these stories. Yeah and and there's also an interesting thing making him Actually dealing a little bit with him being a a black man in a game in In the fall in ciller kind of close minded new england town which gets revealed in a part of narration. If i'm not mistaken. Yeah which is kind of a shame. I would have seen that. Somehow they play with it a little when who is mike comes back from the dead right right in that moment. It's not necessarily handled in the best way how they reveal that information to you both in the narration. And how mike's just like. Oh don't you wanna touch me. You know probably not. You're dead first of all and to. That's not how being gay works. it seems. Yeah there's even this bobo where the brower is. I don't know if he's directed that way or if this is something. I founded editing. It was his choice. Or what but like he kind of looks at this dead body standing in front of him like for for a second. It's just it's such a weird weird way to deal with it whereas what they could have done because this is all throughout the book at an assault or at all of stephen king's books is is you know these small towns all operate on fear.

You didn't know but brad before we dive into salem slot. Why don't you just tell the listeners. A little bit about yourself. Well first off. Thanks for having me on today. If there's anything. I like talking about more than the works of stephen king. I can't really think of it at the moment but Yeah i'm the administrator for or writers association and i'm also a novelist and screenwriter mostly horror and obviously as anyone working genre. We'll say stephen king was probably one of my biggest influences so so it's fun to be on here today. Sounds like you might be more qualified for this than i am. Actually i don't know i think you've Like you're having to watch and listen to everything he's done in i do. I do have some gaps by knowledge so to be fair. I'm doing this to myself though. So there is that but how salem slot two thousand four tv miniseries you certainly have people who have been around for time in this. You have people who are definitely huge stars. Like roblo who. I've come to learn is slightly problematic or very problematic depending on how you look at it but that seems to be how hollywood goes these days and unfortunately i do have to watch things with problematic people in them or who have been involved in them for this podcast. If i want to pretty much be a completion. Est which that's what i do but what was it about salems lot that made you want to pick this one to discuss them. Slots my probably my favorite book by king in okay that that's likely because it's one of the first ones i've erratic whichever book hooked you. The first is a lotta times. The one that people put up on a pedestal. but but not really as a fantastic read in revisited. Every few years. And i love the nineteen seventy eight film with david soul. James mason But i feel like that one's been kind of talked to death and there's not really much more than can be said about. It was seventy nine. I believe right. Yes yes seventy nine. That's right and You know fantastic film directed by tobe hooper as far as far as a tv movie. Goes i think it works really well but again there's not really much more could be said about it. That's the one everybody talks about the two thousand and four one though while it did really well when it came out kind of disappeared after that I think there's probably some reasons for it. But i'm sure we'll get into but But yeah so. I thought this would be a kind of a fun. Dive is to get to talk about an adaptation of on slot. That a lot of people don't even know exists. Yeah and i've been coming across things like that throughout this to you. Know there are four different. Carry movies and people are like wait. What are you watching. Are you watching the most recent one i was like no no no there was also a two thousand to one that nobody seems to know about or very few people anyway so i certainly know what you mean when you say some people might not even know that some of these things exist. Unless you're those of us who have done deep dives into stephen king whether or not we finished everything just yet will remain to be seen. But i want to dive into the cast. I touched on it a little here. Mentioning that rob lowe's but you also have donald sutherland. I mean how can you not mention him. He has a very small role in comparison to what i thought he was going to have. Given the fact that he's donald sutherland. You have andre broader sense. Mathis robert mamone rutger. Hauer rutger hauer novels. Sure there james cromwell rutger hauer thank you yes a fantastic cast is really probably probably the best thing it has going forward is. It's cast. i mean like you said donald. Donald sutherland alone brings this just kind of weird. He brings gravitas to the role but then he plays like sucha a lunatic that it. It's so different from anything. You've seen him play before and i wanted more of it because of that it was something we hadn't seen from him necessarily he sort of more serious in a lot of his roles for the most part i would say and you get bits and pieces of his character but you never really get a ton of him at once like you do with rob. Lowe's ben mears who obviously main character. So you're going to see more of him but even with matt burke it felt like there was a lot more of matt burke in this adaptation than the original. Yeah well and especially the original combined so many characters and got rid of so many others. I actually always have to stop and tried to work out in my head. Who was who. When i think of the original. Like for instance. I think ed flanders in the original is playing a combination of susan's dad. And the doctor. I remember correctly but yeah matt mack and a lot more screen time which is good because going back to the novel and think that's one thing they nailed in this matt is basically your van helsing. If this was was dracula. he's and i kind of liked that angle on it that the english teacher becomes van helsing. Because he's the one who is most familiar with all these myths and legends and literature surrounding vampire lore. It's a shame for He's such a great character that he's stuck in a hospital bed while this is going on but that works out pretty. Well i think by the end it does. And i'll let you know this right off the bat here for you the listeners. I wasn't a huge fan of this. And i think my expectations were set so high because of who was in the cast and the fact that i didn't get necessarily everything i was hoping for out of the cast and sometimes the story. It felt like this was disappointing for me. And i don't know if that's because it's always going to be harder with remakes to kind of top that i too i did. It's like i said going back to carry. There are four carey movies but no one will ever be sissy space like in that role again. Why a part of these two. I feel like you know the books for these are so rooted in the seventy s and even though that predated me reading at you're able to kind of transport yourself the time and a lot of that i don't think translates as well to the modern day in so i think those original adaptations may be just play better because of that. I mean once you add say carry You know you had cell phones and social media or in the salem slot just to the simple activating cell phones and the internet for instance like it. It changes it plus. There's you know as much as people wanna wanna say oh You know. I wish stephen king would get out of politics and stick to writing. His works have always been political salem..

"Yeah and we know from like the the information right the clippings that we get in the book we know that he just like know lived with the sister in the inter. You're tries to ask him about what happens in salem's lot he's just like i moved. Yeah i don't know but and you're saying we were talking about this before the episode. But you were saying that. I said that was lost. Boys the lost boys where he's like fucking vampires or whatever you were saying that. There's there's a connection between those two things. Oh i yeah. I can't find like hard evidence where the team behind lost boys sites this but when if you've seen lost boys like the idea of a ghost like a ghost vampire boy hovering outside of a window. is is a thing that is huge in that movie and shows up here right. That is where this comes from and it becomes a kind of staple of contemporary set vampire fiction Uncle steve is mixed tape Or we're talking about the music in this novel did you. You're listening to the music in this novel. No i did not because there was not a lot. There's not a in some of its like weirdly hidden but Here here are three songs that i found from From this novel. I listened to them. And i'll give you a star rating real quick. Okay number one. Merle haggard okie from muskogee This is playing in the in the bar. That i go. To the roadhouse they go you it's fine. Three starts just good old-fashioned merle haggard song little little bit of country western for you The second song is is the lyrics are quoted in epigrams for the spoke But it's just cited as old rock song. It doesn't have thing but it's a song called endless sleep by marty wilde inside a rockabilly track. That's about like someone died in the ocean. Basically it's pretty good. I'm going to give it a solid four four stars okay. Who's worthless in june. And of course. There is a bob dylan song North country blues which is also quoted in the same epigrams Half star 'cause it's don's on Like this is like the the the the surprise..

"Like what you know. They've been getting the portland news herald or something like that. A local paper basically and and the interesting part about it is that salems lot is such a small town. He can corn quote become a ghost town raking disappear off the map And the in the world just of keeps going around it You know it's kind of premodern. Space of like. Yeah well you know sometimes towns just up fade away but they keep track of it and they start reading reports of of people writing about it as a ghost town in writing about native people in the area around salem slot disappearing or people who buy property and salem slot because it's abandoned of those people going disappearing and so a year later they decide to go back to do something about all the fires that are still there. Yes so by this point and been has essentially adopted mark as his son Which is a very strange Kind of turn Just in in a kind of general sense like in a in a kind of narrative sense rate in the kenyan narrative sense. It makes a lot of sense because they are very similar characters writer by the in terms of personality. They are very similar right. They're both sort of like Dark-haired a artistically inclined sensitive but nevertheless capable of getting their hands dirty and in fact when benn first meets mark The the the feeling he has and this is what the the narrative says right is like the feeling of meeting himself when he was a child. So they they have fled together becoming this weird sort of new family unit. Weirdly enough right to me. This very strongly parallels what barlow and striker or up to write to people kind of like you know skipping around the world together in the steer circumstances but then know been in mark Or i think it's it's been decides eventually like. I'm going back and so they go back to salem slot a year later and They hang out in a nearby town for a couple of days..

"Way getting the believed the ground and pinning him and getting his arm behind him and making him say uncle In in that way everyone understands that mark. Petri is not someone to be trifled with Yeah he's a serious little kid There's a god there's a lot of these kids and and the thing is interesting though that we're gonna go from this to the shining which is like the anti mark petri in some ways in that dany in that novel but We'll get there but yeah so these are people. They all kind of come together in different ways. The first i don't know half of this book is is patiently. Slow the only real things that happened or what we've already talked about. Which is that been. Moore shows up to town and his idea was to lease the Marston yes marksman yeah the the marston house which is like this. You know yvo ass house. It's like sitting above the town on on a big hill ideas to lease it and then work out of it and kind of exercises demons. Whatever is writing a novel about huey marston. This gangster that live there. Who's like doing all kinds of bad stuff. And then but when they get there or when he gets there. It's already been leased to somebody. It's been at least to a pair called striker and barlow best names. Some excellent at stephen king names very very good vampire names ray but but but the least of them already in basically they're vampires are or one is a vampire ones come familiar and they have decided to come here based on the invitation of marston like fifty years earlier Mars the implication that we over the course of novel and i. It's actually kept very vague. That but the ideas that marston moved their aim was murdering children. And maybe doing you know satanism kind of stuff with it. And he had a long correspondence with barlow then known as break and i kind of middle european count and Basically was just they were talking presumably about evil satan stuff And now all these years later breaking and barlow and striker have moved to the town to start the stuff. And i mean from from when they move into whenever when is turned into vampires. Pretty quick It it's it's a few weeks ago. Say that the novel we get some dates in the novel Said the novel begins on september. Fifth been. Susan tells been That she loves him on september twentieth. Or gra Solid fifteen days. yep So that gives you a sense of lake that the speed at which these characters are operating And then the town is dead by october. Fifth there yet so so a pretty pretty short time period year Well literally just one. Month i guess But but i mean. That's what's kind of weird about it. Is that other than these kind of characterization moments about the town and about the characters that we've all talked about and in the little segments that we've given you about each of these characters really jew what we get we get little pieces of characterization where they're interacting with one another or whatever so for example Match and then meeting at. The roadhouse know those are really the segments of characterization. It's only win well. I guess that's happening in the background. We're getting these scenes of the town of for example a dog being murdered. And then the The glick shoulder glick children being killed in one of them being turned into a vampire which kind of sets the whole thing off. But but it really is. It's very slow moving and it. Kinda proceeds like a thriller for every ten scenes..

"The thing that is strange about this is that he had a wife who died named miranda He was in a motorcycle accident and They they hit a a wet patch on the road and they skid and He he ends up being like there's either like not a scratch on him or he's like minorly injured but his wife a scratch on the back of his left hand yes. It's very specific. But his wife is white straight up dies and he is now sort of living in the aftermath of this and the idea. Guess is that he is. He's going back to salem slot to sort of trigger a kind of creative process by confronting this demon from his past. It's sort of strange to me. How he maybe thinks about his dead wife to go in the first three hundred pages of this book and one is directly in comparison with a new woman. Yes seed actually. Maybe both in our just to be like. Oh yeah this. This susan norton girl reminds me a lot of my wife. My wife who who was named maranda in the most we get is that he didn't like miranda was asking him about what he was writing. Yeah yeah and so. It's really hard you know. I think i think you're getting your way around of this microbiome just going to say directly. It's really really hard. Not to read. This as stephen king fantasizing about his wife dying and i don't think that's the intent and i'm not joining the psychologist the novel but when you create a character that's basically you and then you have a wife but seems very similar to your own wife. She's providing feedback for his novels. And being i mean doing all the stuff that you were talking about tabitha gingrich. It's it's it's weird and they love motorcycles. And we know. Stephen king gloves motorcycle his protagonist going to ride motorcycles for the next forty years. And so it's it's it's weird. It just feels weird to read it. Gosh it's really feels like a man fantasizing about dead wife the and the other part of this. The only thing that i think saves bid mirrors from ending up feeling Like re league kind of gross is just like how corny he is as a character but he is our central character and at the same time. He is just a very corny. Dude a actually. In a way that is i think itself evocative of king right yet. He's he's a character who all his beliefs are on his sleeve..

"But yeah i mean the whole the whole logic here and there's some other stuff going on to king is pretty pretty explicit. That like america is ripe for vampirism in particular kind of way but but but there's a similar the relationship you're pointing to here is one where dracula. The vampire represent time being out of joint not not to not to rip you off here but right it's it's a hunter logical and the duration way and if people that means era need you. Because i'm gonna explain it The idea is that something from the past is is latent in the conditions of the present and then the conditions of the present change in such a way as to make that imminent or rise again so the past is never truly past It is waiting to be born in the moment and the idea here. Is that in salem. Slot in the notion of the small town in rural maine in the way that small towns function in relationship to things like great evil. And i could see the notes that that we're going to be talking about that too but it can set the conditions under which those old things that we seem to have dismissed with majority. You're talking about new original dracula where those things kind of bloom again. In the implication being that the vampire was always here there. Just wasn't a vampire to activate it right to activate this kind of of evil necessity That vampirism brings out in the community And and that's really kind of done by this ben mears character. I mean michael. What'd did you think about yours as a as a in character so been near as our first. He's another king type right. This is another type of character. We're going to see versions of again and again. Perhaps the type of character we're going to see the most of maybe he is the writer protagonist and as usual when there is a writer protagonist. It is very hard not to see the person as essentially a cipher for king himself in a lot of ways especially in the ways that he is described. He's sort of. He's he's got like dark hair he is a he tends toward like sensitivity and being artistic right he writes. He's as an author. He is emphatically not stephen king because he is writing what we would today call literary fiction. At least that seems to be the idea that we're getting right like with titles like conway's dr daughter and heir dance in dance. I the i love the idea that this man has written a book called air dance and so we have this sort of alternative king who wrote a different type of fiction and made his name that way but also in this is very important he is. He has a working class background. He knows what it's like to work with his hands. At the beginning of the novel we have The boy in the man who are Been mears that's the man and the boy who is mark petri. We don't know their names yet but we get this epilogue of them You know fleeing from maine down across the united states into mexico and as they're doing this we have the man stopping and working in lake textile mills and all of these jobs that don't exist anymore like all of these manufacturing jobs that i guess would have been a pretty available in nineteen seventy four nineteen seventy five but We have in the novel. Proper been showing up. He's he sort of made his name as this novelist in. He's come back to salem slot to revisit his childhood trauma and use that to write a book now..

"All of these satanists having having their black masses out in in here the good old usa in of course the year after this we get in nineteen seventy six we get the omen which also slots into this ideas of demons demonic possession and for a good long while it is sort of a question in this book of like are these are these dudes just like are these weird mysterious people showed up in town just like some satanists and we get a lot of clues kind of suggesting that until the truth turns out to be a a lot more weird in horrible yeah and Especially where i guess. What's cool about it is like you're saying the the book folds in a particular kind of way and keeps a lot of things. Ambiguous and i agree. I think it would be great. I think it would be excellent if like someone could find someone else. That's it the end. No but if you can find someone. Who doesn't know anything about salem. Slot give it to them and then like poll their reaction. Did you know it was a vampire novel. Because that stuff really doesn't kick in for very long time. I was really surprised. We're not introduced to critical key characters until halfway through the novel. I'll say like it. We do not get hard confirmation that this is a vampire novel until literally the almost the exact midpoint But but what's cool about that about the kind of satanic panic moral panic stuff that you're talking about is that it's not like there's one thing in in another you know it's not like oh we thought it was satanic panic stuff where we thought it was dark writes in and gina rituals and things like that satanism and then it turned out to be vampires. I think king is like really tied into the moral logic of the us and the time. Because it's both right is satanic stuff that is that then gives over into vampires as opposed to thought it was one thing than another. So i think that's it's it gets deploy Kind of both pieces of that in to me. It really feels like stephen king saying look. You know y'all focused on One really boring. Part weird occult stuff. You could be america focused on another really cool part And you get this kind of resuscitation in the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies here. I mean this is in part is the seventy s. But i think it's part of a a run in the time period of the rejuvenation of interest of someone like lovecraft in here. He uses love crafts name more than one time through the character of matt. And so you get this vibe. That stephen king's trying to be like hey look There's other cool stuff to look at this other weird dark things in the american imaginary that you could be pulling on So a apart from the five sentence summary another way of thinking about this book and this is explicit. King writes this book. At least partly. While he is teaching high school english at a school called hampton academy and he is teaching a on fantasy and science fiction and He he teaches dracula brand..

"So i mean but i think it's a lot more polished i think that You know i don't. You're the one who does the research on the writing of these books. Michael you're the one who goes and checks things out. But i wonder how much of an editorial hand was had in this book. I feel quite lot in the same way that the indus carry was editorial maneuvered. But i think for the better. I think that this has as much stephen king voice to it but has a lot of different parts that we are going to see. Show up in king again. I mean this is a real solidification of the stephen king voice as rider and it's also worth noting that while carey was a very lean inefficient novel like two hundred pages thereabouts My paperback of salem slot ones Six hundred fifty pages so considerably longer. And you say that. Like so sadly what i just i. I've got I mean don't get. Don't get to embarrassed to impress here. Michael but i have the collector's edition. Who is that the one deal associations No no it is sadly there's one little stations there is no. It's not but it has like an introduction by clive barker which did not read. I don't know if that is in every version of the book. Now it's up but it's like a big. It's a whole book and it's a at about four hundred pages kind of the same size as the other ones so a like the same dimensions as my version of carrie. So roughly double the length if you know if you don't have the same versions as we do like it's worth noting also that king I think in his little de katori. Maybe it's at the beginning I'm flipping through this now quick. I can't find it but he mentions it as a big book. I think it isn't his acknowledgments right. He says there's a lot of help that goes into writing a big book as he calls it. And this is king's kind of first big book that is also as as you said. I think Had some editorial intervention in his therefore not is stymied by some of the things that i think bogged down his later big books but we will talk about that in the future This is all to say that salems light in. It's really good like this novel is great like i love it. It's really good across the board. I think like every part of it is good. Now that doesn't mean that this is a book above reproach or critique. We will get there. I promise you because there's a lot of there's a lot of like one thousand nine hundred seventy stephen king. Yeah well i mean. In the same way that kerry like we talked about the things in carey that worked. That worked really really well. And then the things that are kind of worth taking a second look at And i think you know. I think that's going to be a thing that we do throughout this show is talking about what works in a novel and what doesn't and Being able to appreciate the things that we appreciate a while acknowledging the things that stink really really stink And you know there's some of that in here too. But i think it's really interesting so i think you're not had had a conversation maybe at the end of the last episode or or some time in the in the intermediary period here Or this this has historically been one of my favorite stephen king novels and reading at this time actually cooled on it a little bit and i don't i don't quite know why maybe we can..

"Just king things as a podcast for the books stephen king in publication order. These are largely horror novels and often deal with complicated and disturbing topics. This episode is on the nineteen seventy five novel salems lot and has content warnings for substance abuse including alcoholism motive accidents and death misogyny domestic and child abuse including infant abuse.

I'm your host. Michael and with me is my co host cameron gross sucking your blood. Michael isn't that a it. Gross noise it is a gross noise. It's very very gross Well i was a you know. That's why i was thinking about because there's someone in this novel eight. I don't wanna spoil it for anybody but there's vampires in this bad boy and somewhat says They're hearing vampire stuff. going on. You know hashtag empire stuff and they say in vin. They could hear the sucking how much that you know. Scare them or whatnot and i just thought in my head. Probably while i was reading the book made the noise out loud. I was just like i had the exact same reaction to that line. Or it's like if this were real right. This would be scary but the problem is in fiction in writing. The words sucking is just very funny. I'll stop doing that. Okay well we're talking today. About stephen king's second novel salems lot from nineteen seventy five. This came out what this is the year after kerry yes the year after which is pretty good turnaround. Time virgo turnaround time and probably well. I don't wanna get ahead of ourselves here. But probably the strongest one two punch in his entire career. It is a very strong one two punch. It is like just thinking about like this. Carry people listen to the last episode. This last episode. Go check that out but we. We enjoyed that. That is a. I think you call it like a like an efficient machine. It's real action is a thriller one hundred percent in this book. I wanted to talk about genre with you at some point during this this episode. I'm sure we'll get there because it also has qualities of a thriller has qualities of a crime procedural through a big chunk of it but ultimately it turns into her becomes or or maybe in the rear view mirror. Now we call it a horror novel But it really is playing with a whole lot of different feelings and affects and like ways of engaging with the book in the same way that kerry did..

We'll take you through the sensational Salem witch trials themselves an attempt to Blaine why so many people claim to experience bewitch meant will also explore where the three women at the center of it all ended up on March First Sixteen Ninety two Salem Town Magistrate's John Hathor and Jonathan Corwin presided over the initial questioning of the three accused witches one at a time Ticha Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne were led into the Salem Village Meeting House and interrogated therefore accuser sat inside nine year old Betty Parris eleven year old Abigail Williams seventeen year old Elizabeth Hubbard and twelve year old and Putnam junior the three defendants weren't represented by any sort of legal counsel they couldn't call witnesses to testify to their character between interogations they were held without veil chained with iron fetters in a single damp room and their time on the stand wasn't much more comforting the first to be interrogated was thirty eight year old Sarah good the unfriendly woman known in Salem village for begging door to door and avoiding church services although she was still nursing her first daughter for your role Dorky Sarah good was expecting a second child at the time of her arrest between her already notorious bad temper her fear for her life and the indignity of being arrested while heavily pregnant good was in a particularly foul mood in a sarcastic angry tone. She denied all of the charges against her when the magistrates fired why she hurt the four accusers good barked back I do not hurt them I scorn it when asked who had hurt the children and if not her good snapped what do I know you bring to others here in charge me with it each time good denied the charges the four a young accusers in the gallery moaned and writhed goods proclamations of innocence appeared to cause them physical pain seeing this the magistrates pressed on they asked the same questions over and over demanding to know who was hurting the children under this unrelenting pressure good eventually through Sarah Osborne under the bus perhaps good chose to implicate her fellow defendant because the forty nine year old old Osborne's children were already adults and no longer needed her maybe good thought that if anyone had to die it might as well be the woman who'd live you'd full life already that least by seventeenth century colonial standards but if good dot her accusers would be satisfied to convict one witch she was wrong all four girls in the gallery sat up straight and proclaimed loudly that good and Osborne practiced witchcraft together the magistrates ordered Sarah good held for trial as the accused which was led back to prison her alleged victims seemed find some relief for a short time the girls fits and hallucinations ceased it was the first respite betty and Abigail I had felt in weeks since they'd fallen ill with the mysterious disease and Elizabeth had become sick later only after news of the illness had already related but all their symptoms were quite pronounced by the time the questioning started and worsening every day frequent seizures hallucinations sensations of itching and pinching plagued all four girls they spoke in tongues and claimed that they could see frightening creatures they said which is one of them to sign a book belonging to the devil if they wrote their names down they too would become witches forced to serve Satan for eternity the nest going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has on a lot of research for this show thank Sammy Betty Abigail Elizabeth and an were possibly experiencing symptoms of Ergotisms a disorder caused by ingesting the Ergot fungus that grows on rye exposed to dampness because they were children it would have taken a small color dose of Ergot for them to feel the effects which is likely why none of the adults in their household reported symptoms but immediately after the interrogation star handed healthy adults also began hallucinating that same day to villagers William Allen and John Hughes saw a string inge beast crouched on the ground in front of them when they approached the creature it broke apart and transformed into three women who fled on foot to understand these seemingly contagious hallucinations we I need to know a little more about puritanism the people of Salem village believed the earth world was a battleground between good and evil there were only two causes for human suffering sin and Satan most of the time puritans chocked their misfortunes up to their own moral failings they often reacted to tragedy by writing out long lists of their sin since but when faced with so much suffering that they could not picture God inflicting it puritans turned to the second explanation the devil will they believed he had earthly servants in the form of witches imps to the puritans these beliefs were not theories or doctrines they were facts symptoms of bewitch -ment were as real and concerning to puritans as symptoms of cancer are to modern people and the harder if God and Puritan communities the more cases of bewitch meant tended to crop up the winter of the Salem witch trials was particularly grim in sixteen ninety two Salem village was overwhelmed by an influx of refugees from nearby communities destroyed and King William's war simultaneously extreme cold destroyed crops and forced families to go hungry the period from sixteen eighty to seventeen thirty has since been identified as the coldest part of a little ice age which lasted from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries these harsh and learn mental social and economic conditions perfectly set the stage for a phenomenon known as mass conversion disorder this condition his characterized by the conversion of psychological stressors into bodily symptoms based on historical records the flick tion of witchcraft spreading like wildfire through Salem village was genuine the people who believed themselves to be bewitched weren't faking their convulsed here's I in one or two individuals then spreads rapidly to peers even if the four young girls who first claimed bewitch meant were indeed suffering from ergotisms their symptoms were probably transmitted to their peers psychologically rather than physically one could compare the rapidly spreading bewitch minutes to a form of accidental hypnosis today we can call in psychologists when strange symptoms so medical explanation appear but in sixteen ninety to the people of Salem turned to the only thing they felt they could count on there faith and they turned against those that didn't adhere to their restrictive religion women like forty nine year old Sarah Osborne she lied convention years earlier by marrying her younger Irish Farmhand Alexander Osborne shortly after her first husband's death she was no obedient pious wife and to the puritans if you weren't an instrument of God you were a tool of the devil Sarah Osborne's questioning began on March first sixteen ninety two immediately after Sarah goods concluded she'd been sick in bed for some time before her arrest and answered the magistrate's questions in a week frail voice Osborne denied the charges of witchcraft oft citing her long illness she was far too sick to be gallivanting around the village flying on Poles and pinching little girls in in fact she pointed out she might well be a victim of witchcraft herself Alexander Osborne testified that his wife had been to say to leave home for several months before her arrest three others whose names were not recorded also testified on her behalf in the end odd warns best defense was also the strongest evidence against her since the start of her illness fourteen months prior she hadn't attended Sabbath Service says at the meeting house this sounded suspicious to the highly religious magistrates in her time away from God she must've aligned herself with the devil they ordered Sarah Osborne.

"Had the bread basket around it of all these different communities places that exist now today as the Rhone independent communities like when I'm in danvers and Beverly in Andover and tops field, and all these places slowly were chiselled off of the Salem landmass and became their own things. So what is now today? Danvers used to be Salem village and Salem proper today used to be Salem town because that was sort of the the built up wealthier town aspect of it all this. This is going to be new information for quite a few of our listener. You know? And it's important. I I would argue for us to to carve these distinctions out and clarify them. Because the the last time that we were in Boston. We learned firsthand from some residents about salems, the the current salems pretty successful toryism industry based off of this tragedy. Is that a real thing is it's still in full swing? Oh, yeah. Yeah. And you know, and we talk about danvers being old Salem village. And Salem old Salem town, and that dichotomy between the two places. There's a reason why their name is changed and that's partly to distance themselves from what happened. Most of the Salem base because they're okay. So there are a lot of victims that came from other communities and over tops 'field all over the place Gloucester, but a lot of the Salem victims came from the Salem village area. So what is now danvers and a lot of the the. The legal aspects, especially the court of oil and Turner, which was sort of the the higher level jury plus judges system and then moving onto the superior court. Those things will happen in Salem town. So you had victims coming from one area. That's Now, Dan vers-, and it's wildly generalized. I'm just roughly saying it and in Salem L. The all the basically all the bad guys. Right. All the people that sat in the jury are on the court and judge people in in sentence them to death. So you have these two towns, you know, three hundred and twenty five years ago where sort of sitting next to each other and they've grown up, but they've also grown apart culturally and sedan verse change its name, and it sort of distance itself from the idea that the which trials happen. They're like you can find things Rebecca, nurses, one of the victims. She was a seventy five seventy six year old woman who her crime was that she was too generous with one of her neighbors back then Puritans were incredibly prejudiced against any other faiths, and so even quake. Offers which we never think of Quakers as being like, tag or or bad people. But in the puritan mind, they just they weren't Puritans and Quakers Rabat, and she took in a Quaker orphan, and that sort of sealed her fate among among other things she had some rumors spread about her and whatnot. Anyway, her house is still there. It's it's a homestead it's museum. You can tour three hundred and twenty five years later, it's still there and it set up more sensitively, and as as a Ziam as opposed to the Salem witch museum, which is, you know, red lights and dark shadows and witches and cauldrons and things like that. And and so there's this. There's this dichotomy of Salem sort of dodging the issue and danvers dodging the issue and sale in town sort of rolling right into it. I mean, there's a there's a statue of Samantha from the the old TV show bewitched in the middle of town because she was a witch..
