"Welcome to jewish history matters. I'm jason la steak and jay. Geller is joining me on the podcast today to talk about his book. The show alums a history of the german jewish bourgeoisie from emancipation to destruction. It's a fantastic book. That tells the story of german jewry as a whole through the history of one family and in particular the four scholem brothers each of whom followed their own political and historical path gerhard or gershom scholem the zionist who is most widely known for his scholarship on jewish mysticism alongside. His brothers. varner the communist. Reinhold the nationalist and eric the liberal. It's a multilayered approach towards thinking about jews in germany as well as the broader possibilities of history and its contingency the scholem brothers really showcase the myriad possibilities for political and cultural activity of jews in germany prior to the second world war as well as the different outcomes of the jews in germany verner was murdered by the nazis at involed gershom immigrated to palestine and eric and reinhold made their way toss. Australia altogether sketches the outlines of the german jewish cultural and political millea as the diaspora of the jews of germany after the holocaust and so the scholem family is simultaneously an eminent middle class. Jewish berlin family and at the same time. It's also distinctly normal quotidian every day it showcases through this microcosm the whole story of choose in germany in the lead up to the second world war and the holocaust as well as aftermath jay. Geller is the samuel rosenthal professor of judaic studies at case western reserve university's department of history in addition to the show alums which will talk about.

Thanks for listening in. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks thanks for having me. This book is is such a fascinating. Approach the micro history really that is focusing on the four scholem brothers. You know obviously gershom. Scholem is definitely the most well known of these figures who are studying you as a major figure in jewish intellectual history jewish scholarship. But i think that part of what you've done here which is so interesting is to bring forward a handful of people who each represent different pathways through german jewish history and this really illuminates a lot of important issues. Do you maybe want to explain briefly about these different trajectories About these different figures in the show family and what they represent in the eighteen ninety s arthur bitty show-me who are the owners of a print shop berlin had four sons reinhold arish varner and gerhard litter known gershom and in time they viewed the travails of german society and experience the ambiguities of not the difficulties of german jewelry and they chose for different political paths. Brian whole the oldest was a national liberal or right liberal. Eric was a liberal democrat or a left liberal van was a social democrat and later became a communist in gershom of course was zionist so in this one family among these four brothers we see four political paths taken by german jewry in the first decades of the twentieth century raven. These weren't the only pads but they were by far the most common covering most of the political spectrum verner began his career as a socialist but he joined the communist party at the time of the The merger of the independent social democratic party but the communist party and he quickly rose to become the second most powerful member of the german communist party. He was a personal rival of of stalin and the stalinist clique in german communism in the mid nineteen twenty s when stalinist is attempting to take over the other communist parties in the commoner

Our Weekend and Holiday Routines During A Pandemic
"Twenty eight is going to be in the books soon. Which i know. Many people are grateful for although you know it's been in my case watching henry grew up this year. It's been his first year of life with all the stuff happening in. So i wouldn't want to wish it away because i've really enjoyed seeing that kids learn grow for that first year although weekends and evenings in such babies are very challenging. Sarah how is our weekends holidays going for you with kids these days. Yeah and in full disclosure. This question came from it. Cut this intro. Inspiration came from instagram. Or someone just wanted to hear. How are we days with kids. We're going these days. So i thought that would be fun to talk about. And i wanted to know from laura's perspective if her number of inker events has changed at all since she had a baby. So we'll see what she says. Ours have changed recently. As i mentioned that jimmy has stopped napping so we have this built in structure of leg in the morning rush. Home get asleep. Relax take a nap while she takes a nap. And then get up and figure something out and now all of a sudden it's like oh that's structure doesn't have to have to constrain us anymore. Necessarily i still would like to have some kind of afternoon. Quiet time which i mentioned previously. So you know. We're working on that but you know if we're both off. We try to do some kind of outing most days. I know some people are able to just putter around the house. I think the ages of our kids were just not there yet. It's not very enjoyable to spend all day in the house into the weather is terrible and we're forced to than that it is what it is but otherwise we are either going to a park. We're trying to go hiking or we are trying to check out the zoo or some other kind of like attraction since it is a nice season and because pandemic so that's kind of our current structure and then we either eat lunch on the go or eat lunch at home although eating lunch and the goal has gotten harder recently because again pandemic but then when we get home we are a little bit more lazy in the afternoons. Some screens typically come on and then we've still doing a very regular rotation of night on saturday and sunday. i typically. that's like our family. Neil where i cook something and it can get a little fancy last week. Cameron requested crab. Again so i cooked a bunch of crabs. We had the little things to open them. Made corn potatoes and beans and stuff they. It was like a nice family dinner. That sounds really awesome. I wish my kids would have crab while samuel eight lobster and crab so yes. He's he's that kid. I'm the others. Don't know what they're missing well with a baby who is crawling everywhere and up on furniture and such. There is no puttering around on weekends. Or here's there could be one person puttering around on the weekends but that means that the other person that needs to be watching the baby And if that is not mutually agreed upon that can lead to resentment on one part or the other so we really have to kind of trade off and say okay. Here's who's doing what at what time so each of us can get our exercise in or any trips or other such things. We need to do figuring out with the other kids activities. Henry is still taking to naps at this point Trying to figure out okay. Will the morning nap the afternoon nap. It's kind of hard to go anywhere. But then again with the pandemic. We have not been doing that much anyway so probably by the time things really start opening up for that possibility. He's gonna be in the next stage which will be fine because then we can go do a morning activity come home to the afternoon nap and have that time that we we know will be quiet because the older kids can generally disagreement. Alex is a bit hit or miss. Although usually if we get him on the computer he will watch it for hours So kind of think of it as camp youtube but The only promise of the other kids decide they want the family computer so we make sure that they do not want the family computer. Please watch something on your phones. Watch something on the ipad. go do something else. Do not take the one computer that alex wants. You know kids do grow up. I had this great idea back in early. Twenty twenty and i had hired basically a second part time nanny partly to help with driving in the afternoons and then to do saturdays as you know full day of childcare so that we could do the older kids activities. Not have the stress of having somebody home for the baby's naps or somebody having to watch the baby on the sidelines of games and things like that and then of course with the pandemic we did not that was not able to continue. That particular person didn't actually want to keep coming whether that was allowed or not. She was not comfortable doing so. So that was the end of that. And so we've just been on for weekends and you know i mean it was probably something i will look into again as things scale back up because we haven't had as many places to go but when we do again i think we're going to like we will have to have somebody home in the afternoon while the baby naps. Possibly as jasper is fourteen. Maybe that person can be hemmed so yeah. I haven't entirely thought that weekends are not exactly relaxing. They says

Department said that With their office of professional standards found that quote after reviewing video evidence, ps concluded the primary and assisting deputies acted in accordance with the guidelines of the sheriff's department and US quote objective reasonableness on on the level of force us in that incident Anderson. I appreciate it. Join me now, Johnston, the former Missouri Highway Patrol. Captain, who is applauded for the people? He led police response to the riots in Ferguson Missouri six years ago in the demonstrations there Kevin. Johnson thanks so much for being with us. Can you just walk us through? It's very easy to look at something and form opinions about it. And there's obviously multiple moving parts this, but can you walk us through? What protocol is for officers trying to bring somebody into custody? Who may be resisting, but may be in distress as well. Well I think initially you use those tactics that you've been trained onto. One is resisting. Starts at a different level compliance. You're asking him to put it behind his back, but in watching this video is obvious at a certain point. He's in distress. He is not a tipping the five year. He is in distress He's telling you can't breathe and you can hear it in his voice. Can you see in his face? But you see them not taking any action story officer. More so trying to maybe A. Clutch his own chest I mean he's trying to bring his arms in, but not in a aggressive way, so I think we see this and he's definitely in distress was tough to watch I watched it. and. It took me back to what we're saying with Mr Floor, but he's definitely in distress. He tells me about his heart condition, and so you have to begin to take that consideration, and yes, please officers run across a suspect who say say different things, but you have to assess things based on the merit of that moment. I WOULD IMAGINE Some officers watching this would say well. People say all the time. I can't breathe, or you're hurting me. I know how one deals with that in that moment I mean obviously there there must be. I mean. How do you deal with that? You have to you have to assess the situation, but in this gentleman here you can help grasping for air. And so I think if the assessor situation someone's grasping prayer and you can look. You can see the look on his face that he is in distress. When when you hear about when when you know police reform means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. You hear protest protest. You're talking about de-fund, please. I'm wondering what what do you think about that? de-fund police idea and also when you think about police reform what what reforms that can be made short term and even long-term. defunding police I take that as let's just make sure we're looking at budgets and make sure that the improperly funded that if there's things there that we can move around to another. Another agency that we need to look at that, but we may look at it. Department is saying that they're underfunded. We may say that they're exactly funded, but but most people that are saying to fund a police are saying. Get rid of the police, but you know school budgets, most governmental budgets. They're looked at to see if there's money, there should be moved around our fishing day. And so I think that's proper and I think for police department while we're trying to. Two men are ways with communities nation. That would be a way to do it to say. Yes, look at us if we can help with our budget to make our communities in our country better. Why wouldn't we? And, so we started talking about police reform is about training. We have to make sure that is correct that we're giving everybody a seat at the table and we're listening to the people that are in our communities specially in our African American communities, not that we're giving them answers. We need to listen to them and let them give us the solution that they see. On implementing those. Ron Johnson. I appreciate your time tonight. Thank you very much. Thank you very much Anderson.

Let's hear about this person's dog and stuff like that. Yeah and that's why I feel like having an episodes largely neutral to positive about someone and then taking five minutes to obviously they shouldn't have had sex with a teenager is not good enough.

Yeah Yeah you're just GonNa have to accept that that's what is that many aspects many types of social history. That's true. I think a lot of people will say women's history would be the same thing various ring so racial histories will be the same thing. Yeah yeah but it doesn't mean that we can. I think it would be remiss of US too talk about people that we found shoe. Yeah having said that like obviously there is a line. Yeah constantly deciding one that is. There's a point at which productive use of time. Yeah I think that's the thing but there's no way for us to kind of lay down a hotter principal now being like we will talk about people if I've had minimum minimum. Yeah there's no way for us to like mass way established. That just sounds like such nonsense when we put it out like that. There's no way for us to like make a rule about that. Yeah but yeah. Let's move on from that. Let's talk about tattooing so in nineteen forty eight got his first tattoo which was a little anchor shoulder because Sam has giant navy fetish like a lot of people. Once he had one he needed more. You the bug to the extent that he just kind of caved and tattooed himself a few times. Sandwiches vary like ready to go. Yeah all times one time tattooed himself. He put a series of little notches on his hand and four indicating five six seven eight inches. Get fact checked when mentality. How big the penises often somebody actually gamblers being like. I have on my arm. Evren tells me they've got ten inches led say. What is wrong with you know? He learned that the Saturday between paydays found lions of sailors waiting to get tattooed and image seized. Stam deeply stuck with him to actually because of his sale fetish somewhat. Yes somewhat yes so just kind of the image of sale is waiting in line has been really powerful aerobic fixation for him for quite a while so he starts to research more about tattooing. He enrolls in a correspondence course. I don't think it led tattoos without tattoos. That concerned me anyway. So he like he also found the. This wasn't something that you could and he learnt impasse in from almond diesel. Who was like one of the old Tattoo Masters around at that time? And then in nineteen fifty four. He started to tattoo out an amusement arcade in downtown Chicago under the pseudonym fills power back. Feel as back so you've been dreaming of this for a while. He wrote to a friend. In December of netted fifty three that history was to quote. Hymie to a seaport town rent a shack hang out a shingle and spend my golden twilight years putting lovely designs on strong young Brown arms and shoulders and ties in box. Felli requests were rises. Are just exactly what you think. He's this point he does tattooing. More than one. Pena's I actually agree. Yeah sounds very papal does so. He discovered that he was quite good at running shop. He had a knack for dealing with the various literally rough personalities that came into get twos so like this time. There's lots of sailors and things like that but there's also just a lot of criminals. He also found was able to successfully proposition people tattooed like with surprising frequency and he really sort of intimately connected to people. Hey Tattoos because it is like quite an intimate the yeah yeah. Later in life is his sex. Stra- started to wane a bit. He would find like just having the intimacy of tattooing limb and told him to the mall. I was doing that. And that's what I'm saying like enough not to like climax buying. Yeah Yeah experience in myself. So he was a teacher for twenty years and then some combination of all of the reasons why he might get fired Colson vise and he started tattooing full-time and despite the fact that as we talked about he didn't really like teaching that much she had to take vitamins to get through it. At the end he felt deeply mixed about losing it impolitic. Ju told the classes misuse that we raised earlier. He was terrified about whether he could make a living as a tattoo artist fulltime but also he really felt the loss of face that losing his teaching job wants to him. It was a really important part of his identity to be a writer at an academic and for more than twenty years. He sort of had that as a stable part of his life and so to be quote unquote like just a tattoo on time where this really stigmatized maiden doubt his self worth quite a bit. Yeah Yeah Yeah and especially. I guess like. He didn't leave by choice. It's not like he was like. Oh I'm bored of this. I'm going to go and try. Try Be attachable out his full-time or something. He was like rejected from it. Yeah Kinsey was very supportive of this new stage of SAM's life. He said that he valued Sam's input as much as tattooist as he had as an academic and also suggested that he start trying to see what he could uncover about the motivations who people getting tattoos of the people that get into beautiful how tattoos none of them could have a ton why they'd call the tattoos and so sam started to kind of like think about that and he made a thousand page. Tattoo Journal six years with observations and statistics from just informally chatting with these people. Just sorry Tara hold are all the time. Yeah so I think that's really important as well. So Kinsey gives him some kind of like intellectual service in nine hundred sixty eight thirty. He closed his tattoo. Pala because Illinois had recently outlawed tattooing anyone under twenty one and a lot of his clients wanted twenty one so he moves to San Francisco and he sets up a Tattoo Shop Front in Oakland which is near the naval bases and is also. Luckily Nia are the headquarters of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Gang. Oh Okay so obviously they are quite tattooed. Gentlemen yes yup one of those things and the shopping journal is in like quest a heavy crime area. There's little police brutality of gang activity and so it's just a pretty rough tense area. He's in but yeah makes a living now in nineteen sixty six don. Ed Hardy walks into the tattoo time. He's a young makeup. He'd still spiro through his correspondence course and tattooing which contributed to how it was just the thing that people did Sands Tattoo. Apollo was a big influence on audio.

Tattooing people tend to Mental described the Tattoo Movement. That was ought in and of itself that existed at the time was flawed these tatters. He'd never seen anything like it and he knew that this was the kind of art he wanted to shoe and he asks. Sam To teach them how to and SAM discourages it. He'd used to a diet that has no option to break into the mainstream and well how long term viability for career. Sorry not how that has been wrong. Guest Room guests. Yeah but he didn't give him pointers and like basic skills and techniques and so forth at did his first two on his leg in sixty seven his tattoos that he tattooed to be clear. Here at Kaplan yes yeah and sorry his apprenticeship with Sam wasn't particularly long or formal. But it still him with wealth techniques and he went on. I became Ed hardy throughout nineteen sixty six nine hundred sixty seven Sam was visited by various hells angels including the leader. Ralph Sonny Barger. Justifiably terrified of them. They're all extremely violent and often. Egged on by using PCP and other drugs but they became the mainstay of his business and he caught a stencil became friends with them. I also like like they talked about him as a friend. Belykh are yeah. Yeah he was put off what he realized that a lot of the tattoos he would doing with testaments to their participation in various acts of violence or rights are from sixty seven to seventy one became their official tattoo artist and they were very particular about the accuracy of various like emblems and symbols. They had so they wanted like a good guy. Sir Sam was it. He lists some common designs that these gangs would be tattooed with in his memoirs but he doesn't divulge a lot of because their secrets probably would have been killed near those things and he recalls having like a lot of very tense encounters with them once he was cold in the middle of the night and Sunday told him he had to come to the to Pala and he was like I made but okay like nor his out and he's being asked to blackout a gang tattoo. Guy Has who is not a member of the gang. Took that guy off somewhere and like presumably voted. Yeah that sort of thing goes on and that coupled with the fact that it's just like quite a violent area yes eventually. That sounds like all right. That's enough was retired. Who being a tourist. So once he's retired he comes to writing and publishes the Phil Andrews Books As. We've discussed that eventually. He stopped writing as well. Sort of feels like he's said what against to say. Don't interested in China more out. I like the way he's just paying like I feel like I've written enough Guy Erotica. I'm satisfied no. That's not how I imagined imagined writing Erotica going once he stopped so he's retired and he doesn't really have any immediate. Social Circle becomes increasingly socially isolated dependent on drugs his health lessons and on December thirty first nineteen ninety-three he dies of heart failure due to chronic pulmonary emphysema. After he died he's house is left crammed full of all of these papers and things. Fulton gay sex things yup all kinds of journals and letters and records and that Sam is he near the end of his life was unsure he would be interested in his papers when he died so he just kept them in his house. The man who had been aside his executor had passed away from AIDS when he died and local archives of libraries that we're interested in gay related collections were experiencing a huge flood of donations. Hosing many people will pass away from the crisis and so there was no. Fa His papers to his executive ended up being a man called Michael Williams who luckily was a trained librarian strong interesting Guy Culture and he took sabbatical from his job and spent seven months before clearing.

He was at fault quiet destroyed by his emerging sexuality and will the Walser because he realized that it was all the boys that he was actually interested in despite this general atmosphere. There isn't any outright discussion about homosexuality in the town which he put down to basically just complete cultural ignorance about it. So there's never any like explicit mention against her sexual is in church or anything like that but these people are still using. Yeah Yeah himself will sit. Became very matter of fact about his sexuality very quickly accepted that he was just into boys and that was just kind of be how it was so he might as well just get used to and north stress about it. Well I'm gay dropped some. Yeah like I think it is a bit more complicated than that. And obviously as he goes through life his border ninety nine as a gay man in America at this time. He's socially isolated and so a lot so he does have more difficult times for the lodge has just like Yep. I'm gay. How many men can I have sex with? Let's find out that he put this attitude.

I made a secret hiding place for the book to the attic stairs and brewed and write and read stuff. I became an expert in the field of six theory.

What a besotted like fairly young having those just little like playful sexual encounters that kids kind of have with each other sometimes solid like masturbating with another boy and things like that. His first non master batory sexual encounter was a blow job that he gave to a big guy who was a football player that went to school. He says I was over in two minutes. So I'm not sure if this just means so. This guy was like physically. Jacks or if it's decatur like older in the school. I mean if at bars in highschool account different Cab but I feel like if he's like fifteen of this guy's that little true yeah and he goes on then to continue Tony Shades. Blow jobs with other boys and it does not lead hence we although that was just like worth making no self regarding that first job he said so began my criminal life than punishable by the laws of the state of Ohio at that time by about twenty years of imprisonment. I guess each time. Total incarceration in higher between five and six thousand added that home. Yeah walk is keeping records knows how many blow jobs is giving these records at this point. I'm not sure exactly. When but he does saw quiet. Yeah primes comma sexy such tavak. Alison Start Recording sexual encounters. Just for fun getting a couple hundred blow jobs like this is an origin story so he does specify that generally giving head boys who are all him and as I say that can only really be couple yes something but it is the case and I thought it would be worth mentioning that because I think it would be reasonable if someone found that uncomfortable for his parts and didn't feel any sense of coalition regarding this he felt quite proud and sort of POW. Who'll at having this thing that they wanted yet he could provide the way you sort of worded at very much. Sounds like he's being quite assertive about this. Yeah I think it starts giving boys blow jobs and then we're kind of gets around between some of them like if you WanNa blow job you can go to this guy. He's being shooting term. Yeah but still like. It's something that he's happy to seemingly fairly indiscriminately. It also meant that this little old. A boy's who you know we're not really policies sort of social circles. Him treated him with respect and so carefully because they didn't want to America. Yeah they didn't want to lose their chance of getting a blow job. I also nights. I offended him. I don't want him to get out that he does not pay spreads. He's also I can guys like everybody. I wonder how these boys Probably Strike Yeah. I just wanted to whether there's any like conflict for them there. I mean I'm sure there is and what it's worth as sort of continued to say. Sam Does Moseley Shoe Men. He obviously has to be straight tyrod his life and that's clearly quite tied up with him wanting to shoot masculine and kind of understanding straightness and masculinity is being the same. But Yeah I think that if you had said he would have kind of ashamed of these with straight boys yes so apart from generally pretty chill time being a gay high school student. He did have one negative incense so he left a sexually suggestive known for men in the Boarding House trying to initiate sex with him and his family found out. His father drove him out to the countryside. Gelded him in the coffin? Our and he sort of pretended to be chastened into not like understood how serious this was all that and went along with his dad suggestion that he go and have sex with a female sex worker in the next town over to kickstart and being strict as his dad. You know wouldn't pay for it. He Made Santa. Pay For in San Juan. And he did that. That's just imagine a circumstance where like Yo parent was like. Hey I think you should go and have sex.

It's interesting sort of the tarring. All of this biography of writing and so forth is that he tends to take pretty like well. What are you GONNA do approach to? What are often quite like horrific circumstance and I guess. I just wanted to sort of mentioned things like that because I don't want to make this episode of two lights. Yeah like He. He lives a fairly fired. Life and nothing like truly horrendous is going to happen to him like he doesn't get cute at the this or anything like that but I think it would be easy to just kind of present. This as like sat was fun. Six Romp Through Twentieth Century America. And that's sort of dishonest. Certainly yeah while we're mentioning this famous sex worker who we know nothing more. About Sam's only other significant experience sexually with a woman was with a friend of his in adulthood. Hunting was any curtis and she was a high school French teacher who was eighteen years older than him about her. He says Emmy fell in love with me and in my peculiar way I love about mountain forty-three we began to go to bed together and continued this for about six years. Two hundred eleven times up until Kinsey said after our interview wanting stop so that's African Z. The sex researcher who will come back with kids eat does a lot of interviews with people. About sex lives statistical purposes. It was one of those people. Townsend outline should not have been counted. Kinsey was like. Why don't you stop? And he was like hey question that he goes on to say and I of course was not heterosexual. I bought her a wedding ring. As a common law wife. Both of us have fulfilled the legal aspects by announcing two three people. We didn't want to get married. It was as much harlot dances mind for. She would have lost her husband's pension as a war witter and so there's other having sex and they remain friends until she passes away and that's it. I kind of matches up with what you said before. About his attitude things like what? Are you going to do this how it is? He's just like I guess. Women who this woman seem super blase. Yeah I mean it is interesting. Because he doesn't just like might as well have sex with women like really ever. Yeah Yeah. He's quite like vocally.

"After high school he went on to university doing a B A with honours and mass and then a finished in nine hundred ninety four I. His topic was provocative of the Oxford Movement. And Its nexus with English Literary Romanticism. Sounds Gay Yeah? I'm sure it was pretty gay. He had a mental while he was studying in the form of his Professor Clarence Andrews through whom he met a number of literary figures of the day so this included William delegates and most importantly to Sam's Life Gertrude Stein and Alice topless. So we're not gonNA talk a lot about that. There's not a lot of sort of big events that happened in their friendship. That necessarily make interesting storytelling. They would have an ongoing largely led to the based friendship for several decades. And after Gertrude. Stein died he remained friends with Alice until her death considerably lighter and they were sort of motherly role to him. They called him Sammy and that would sort of skuld in pampering praise him by turns for years so that's nice. After graduating. Sam started to teach which was the profession that he would hold for the next twenty years also. He taught in a variety of institutions. Often either in small towns or in religious institutions will both when you demand like University School College alike understand the difference between university and college. That's like Tushar education. He's on a high school teacher. Yes so these were often either in small towns or in religious institutions or both as I said and this contributed toe pattern of him killing quite isolated at his job and generally just not enjoying where he's teaching his first full time job was teaching English at Carroll College which is a small Catholic College in Montana and he said about it trying to teach cowboys and the sons of cowboys about semi. That's not a winning pastime. He then went on to this day coach Washington and he found it very dull and conservative and gossipy so again socially isolated for like a different in one thousand nine hundred sixty published his first novel angels on the Bow. It received national attention. It was very well acclaimed. It depicted a circle of Bahamians in Columbus Ohio. During the Great Depression was quite comedic. It was very sexually candid. One of the characters is a sexually promiscuous woman who is portrayed very sympathetically and her inclusion man. He was fired from his job at the time. I mean I guess. He didn't love his job anyway. Yeah but I heard. His novel is economically successful. It's not really. He finds a job at Loyola University. Which is a Jesuit School cowger hearings into? Because he thought given that it was a religious university he would probably also get fired well. They've found out about this book. So settlement copy of his book and they were like whatever that was fine so he went to teach there. The position was enormously stressful at demanded a very extraordinary amount of work from him. He's teaching onto this academic. Who is like an incredible perfectionist? Eric so he really comes into his own as a scholar there but at the same time obviously this have a lot of strain on him and his mental health so salvadore begun to have with alcohol and whilst working at Loyola his alcoholism worsened so it got to the point where he was regularly getting blackout drunk at night and was drinking shots between classes are was having to mock the day off on the calendar. When he woke up he knew if he needed to go to class on what to teach and so in. Nineteen forty seven. He sought help from alcoholics anonymous and excessively quit drinking Aldo. Obviously difficult processing. Had barris relapses and so forth but he did successfully quit drinking. He also decided to leave his job and to get a new one to pull university which he describes as being like a school mostly attended by working kloss students and just being like much less academically rigorous so much less stressful on him the workload. Yeah yeah so I think that's probably good for him but although he's quite a popular teacher he still doesn't enjoy the work. He described the students as being illiterate and the WOK is repetitive and pamphlet boring and Sir. He found himself after a time. Taking vitamins to get through teaching causes I K. By this time as well he had already started to tattoo on the side. This is at a time when tattooing is very highly tires. Yeah so. This is something that he could be. There's also the fact that he is gay and although we haven't talked about sex life yeah. He is carrying on an active sex life time so he's quiet at risk of losing his job. Yeah I was going to ask like whether he knew point. Yeah we'll talk more about when how he's okay but like in short his or go all the time so as I mentioned him published a book when he had been a younger man but to spy. That sort of early promise of this fairly well acclaimed novel. He never followed up on that and had written little in the intervening couple decades by this point largely because he was interested in writing books that were gay it was pretty fruitless to try to Ryan if you about bat because it wouldn't be published so he could have to consider self publishing and distributing he's what privately but in the nineteen fifties which is to buy now. This is dangerous and difficult and illegal. Okay not just to self publish. But to self publish like gay action to the Aclu he also could have gone through an aerobic publisher like potentially in Europe and turned down the sex that he wanted to write about to just sort of a suggestion but this likely would have required that he pathology. Is Tha Doubts House? Sexually Kenny Wilson. Willing to do that. He just wanted to riot about like fairly. Well adjusted men having very explicit sex with each other and it's the fiftieth that's so unfortunate in nine hundred fifty eight and met and became friends with Rudolph the cart. Who was the editor of the Swiss magazine Chris? For the news and Culture magazine for gay men it stories tended to portray the relationships as largely sort of romantic emotional. It was very cautious about any kind of sex. And do it's quite an assimilationist approach to get rights. Sam Senator Publish articles and stories in nineteen fifty eight and he went on to become its strongest American voice over the next ninety s despite this he found it very restrictive are this time. He has been delving into beat. Sm More and more and the magazine rejects. His more of early beat sm e stories. Yes so he decided that he wanted to write fiction reflected his experience know what this magazine required and so in nine hundred sixty three hot recommended. He's in his stories to danger bookseller that he knew who started a more risque fabrication se so he submitted some stories to this guy under the name. Phil Andros and was very popular. The name he chooses like essentially means like loves men so he begins to develop a character under the same name so also called Phil Andros and he's this like educated and sophisticated sex worker whose like traveling around America and having various sexual hijinks. It's written from the point of view. So it's kind of like a found footage film one. I guess you know like yeah. This really happened so by nine hundred sixty four. He'd stop teaching and he was sick of life in Chicago so he moved to San Francisco. He was during Popeye's budgeting gazing and he worked there as a tattoo artist. And then once he stopped doing that as a writer. He published a short story collection. Called Stud the start is a dollar sign. Oh well I'm glad to hear that things are not change to also really tacky pretty tacky. That's one hundred percent self-published collection of Gay Erotica. That you can find right now. Yes he then went on Taraq. Five full address books so by this time it was obviously a bit easier to publish. Gay Ronca. Yeah he's doing it but it's still a pretty thankful business. So he's paying a flaps once of right for them which isn't a particularly big one he doesn't get any royalties and he has no riots regarding if additives which sucks. It's interesting because like Sam. All the gay pulp writers of the time or at least some of them often cared a lot. More about work than publishes did because like Sam so himself as being part of the sexual van God fiction that he hid needed to exist when he was yeah man but the publishers viewed as like porn they could use to make it quick. Buck says attention professional grail rail. He also wrote a couple of other books. He wrote a memoir about his friendship. With Gertrude Stein Mouse Tacos de semi sort of like amateur collection of his letters. Sounds sounds good. To and from. Them SPRANG THE BIOGRAPHER. Noted that this was a pretty decent contribution to Stein scholarship particularly because it was not afraid to be frank about the fact that portraits timeless lesbian. Which at the time was not really thing. Don't think he also published a book about tattooing called bad boys and tough tattoos a social history of the Tattoo with gang sales and streetcorner punks and fifty two nine hundred sixty five but also sounds like a very interesting. Yeah I nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred eleven yet. I said I just skim through quick for yeah. He did not like that title by the way the Bat Boys Top Tattoos Pot forced upon him by his Polish and so we will return to the end of his life at the end of this episode. But I thought now that we kind of had a bit of a sketch about what he broadly did with his time on earth. Yeah we would go back to the beginning and talk about sex life. Frankly is going to be the bulk of the episode. I remember you saying when you raise such the episode. Jay was casual mention of filthy. Gay three-way in something you will like. It just wasn't remarkable enough to include. They always are many individuals sexual encounters in this that. I'm like I mean I think in any other episode. I would have included. The at. This is too many. He has like dozens of orgies at his house that I may be referred to once. So it's going to be down dozens of orgies. Yeah he called them daisy chains. It's quite cute so as we've made clear. Sam is best known TWAT basically because of his sex life so literally go right back to his youth now as we said he grew up in a small religious town which isn't the greatest environment to be getting a six just to be a sexual being at all the history. So Sam or Kohls. He knew that sex was wrong before he knew what sex actually was has pretty messed up for Christianity..

Diehard chains the whole dynamic, and is the story true Sam that, you actually auditioned for Reservoir Dogs for Tarantino, didn't get the part, but he liked you enough that when Pulp Fiction was kind of picking up steam, he called you for that know off that audition. No. But I actually went in audition. Yeah. I really Clinton and LARs bender producer not knowing who they were just knew they were really terrible. I left thinking I didn't get this job and.

And he's like, yeah. How'd you like to get your part? Your member me. Yeah. Hey, I'm writing some right now for you. Okay. Wow. And sure enough. I went off in two weeks later. I got the Pulp Fiction script. That was in west Virginia's shooting PBS fill and the script. It was right. So that was twenty five years ago, the anniversary of the release is coming up this fall veers can was making twenty six of the year. So prior to that, right. When that when you had that meeting, the film came out twenty five years ago and what just as a practical matter to your life. What did that mean? When Pulp Fiction came out how did your life change. With the combination, I guess, of die hard people knowing you dour downward didn't come up until almost a year after put. Right. But that time we were shooting at that, right? But. Came to. Cult figure because interestingly enough when we went to care. I was the one person that people peripherally knew they weren't sure if I was that guy from jungle, even though I'm I was the only. I had my hand and foot threats there for some reason, somehow, that happened only know how that has on their mind and maybe somebody, but as a block with my name was remember doing. But going to can. And everybody knew everybody indicates kinda except me. So by the time the film wanted war namely came back, and they started that academy campaign. Oh, so much going on around that, that I was kind of brand new to understand. And so when the manipulation. Nominations were happening. I was like, well, wait a minute. They didn't wanna put me in John in the same category. Because they said, we will cancel each other out, so we'll who the lead actor not. Right. So I got put in supporting jog up lead might. Well, okay. He's in a movie more than I am. At thought in my head. So that's how it works. And I'll go in this other category. I guess and. Those a lot of talk about God. You were making the move in that you're gonna win. But, you know, mine's been nominated a lot of times. You're going to be around for now. But the hills. You know, I would go to all these all these things I wanted to the Golden Globes. I went to whatever else there was and. Martin didn't win, but those another actor one was actor's name died that Hispanic actor. That was. It was a great actor to way did a lot better. But he was winning most of the awards him by the time we got to kademi war, and they said, Martin Landau, it would I was going. What? I think I cursed. Got might be one of the few people in that low box. I think the wife left. It out. We're done. Due awards mean, a lot to you, or anything to you. Sam would it be nice to have one of those trophies on the show, I guess, so. A rather have greens. A lot more people who won the Academy Award last year. I mean if I who won best actor last, you, you stop and think. Yeah, you're right. I got tiger like that. Yeah. Yeah.

"samuel l" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Of the Sunday, sit down podcast. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along my guest this week a Hollywood legend Samuel L Jackson. Did you know that Sam Jackson is the man, the actor whose movies have grossed more at the box office in total than any other actor in the history of Hollywood? Something like fifteen billion dollars around the world has movies have made a lot of that has to the franchise moves. He's done Star Wars, Jurassic Park, the marvel cinematic universe, but also because he's just a damn good actor. And he's been in a lot of good movie some of them big budget like those others, of course, classics like Pulp Fiction, which at the age of forty five for Sam Jackson. This is twenty five years ago in nineteen ninety four was the big breakthrough. He done some movies, of course with Spike Lee before that. But it was Pulp Fiction that cemented him as a star. And by the way, about six months, later, die hard with vengeance came out and that launched him as a box office. Stars. Well, something, Bruce, Willis told him would happen before it did Sam Jackson tells that story as you'll hear in just a bit also guy who's had well, you know, forty five years old, there's a lot of life before that. And so he grew up in the segregated south and Chattanooga. Tennessee came from a broken home, his grandparents raised him along with his aunt. He talks about the impact. They had on his life, and why he was steered into acting his latest project is shaft, remember, he did a shaft movie about nineteen years ago. Now, he's back reviving that role inspired, of course, by the original shaft of the nineteen seventies, Mr Richard Roundtree, who's appearing in this new version of the movie as well, a great conversation with a great guy paint the picture for you were in an empty Tribeca New York steakhouse, the two of us Sam Jackson in a blue suit and a matching blue kangol wearing white sneakers, what I'm wearing immaterial. This is all about Sam Jackson, right? Now on the Sunday sit down podcast Sam, thanks for doing this. I know how busy are beating the bushes for this movie to see it. I don't think that's going to be a problem. I told you I just saw it. It's funny. It's it has all that spirit of shaft in it from eighteen seventy one, but it's been up dated, and I think there's a new generation that's about to see chef for the first time because your last one was almost twenty years ago. That's true. So what does that feel like to introduce this character people now who's been around for the rest of us for so long? I like to think that there's an audience that knows about it kind of in the back of their minds. They just didn't know that they did. Because advocates music is classic. Yeah. Kind of like when you hear that music, everybody knows what it is. You You know. know, and their parents played somewhere, maybe they wanted to other films. Maybe they didn't see my maybe did see my, but the have a kid, like Jesse that they identify with a very real kind of way it's gonna help, and he's sort of the technological shaft to my analog. Well, that's the bunny thing over those twenty years, or even farther almost fifty years, the original, he actually hasn't changed that much through the years. I mean I mean. Well, you say he. Well, you're the aids specifically. Sure when they brought me in that Richard was. Right. Right. Right. No, that's it. I mean, yes, but the linear of the of the legend, he is the the original myth maker. He's the guy who was the sexy for all the chicks. Really great leather clothes, and, you know, the rainforest brother man who had everybody's back he was, but his spirit lives on in your mind. So by the time I got to do mine, and we had a minute, I was able to be in angrier and more aggressive. Yes. Chef for the change of the century, right? Right. Also, I had more issues. And now this one. It's interesting enough was not around me and his mom thought I was a little, too dangerous, though. She took him away from me, raise, the Minnesota burbs cinema MIT. Now, he's Nepi is, but he needs my help. So when he comes that I have to kinda show him what it means to be a member of this particular family. And what it means to the community in general, and they try to drag you into the twenty first century your views of the world, things like that. And what part of why love the movie is because by the end you think there's going to be this moment, where he sort of realizes his old ways, and he's got to move forward with. No right up until the closing credits of the movie, he's still shaft Okay, me. me drawing pictures on the wall. That's right. So how do you decide when, when it's a good time to go back to a project like that, like something you've done before what was the script the director was something that told you I want to do this now, thought it was a fresh take on what's been happening with their after always been a thriller. And gritty cram dramas. And when I was approached with it said they wanted to make a comedy straight ahead comedy. I don't think I sign off of that. What do you want wanted to be? Well, it needs to be action comedy. If there's gotta be anything. You can have comedy, but you have to have an element of danger, that's very real. That's offense. So when audiences watching it, they can laugh Tanna time but also know that omega this toxic. So hopefully, we manage to make that, you know mix. You did you did, and those shootout scenes or no joke. And there are a lot of them. There's your action right there. I'm I'm a huge fan of bullet ballets. Watch them with John. Woo. The good euphemism. I like that. And you know, you mentioned Richard Roundtree. This isn't exactly a cameo. He's got like a good important part at the end junky. It takes all three of us to make this thing happen. What did he tell you the first time you came back to play chef nineteen or so years ago about the character, what did you need to know about him? I need to know anything about him. I was I was I was really more concerned when I was doing mind about when it was going to be my opportunity to be a sex machine for chicks. And John kept telling me, don't worry, it's going to have. Wait. When's it gonna have Richard was just laughing? Because as soon as they brought him onscreen, they handed him to win and he walks in with the best MAC. Really? We know he's too sexy guy. I'm the angry. No. But he's, he's the quiet in the storm all kind of stuff is chaos. Onset Richardson sitting on the side, smoking Seger Jilin waiting on waiting on call. His name get getting. He doesn't know he just walked in when it says moments smooth Ega. So what does it feel like for you on the eve of a movie where like three days right now, from the release as we sit here talking, you've had so many big hit so much success? You still get like nerves thinking about how people are going to react to do this point. Right. Here's how the people of marketing the film. Yeah, I'm out here doing my part, but the marketing departments got to do their part. They got to convince people that they wanna see I see billboards to kind of nice. Bingo billboards guys in these really nice coat. It's outta my hands. I've done everything. I'm supposed to do in, hopefully, if people spend their money to go into the theater, they will see that. I did my job on hopefully. I'm entertaining them making them having a Megan laugh mega mismile making. I do all the things that I had to do hopefully wish for the best that it works out like most of the other films that done enjoyable. I don't poplar move. Yeah, I have a thing about going to movies in leaving the world that we live in not having to think about what's on the front page of the newspapers or who won the game that they just go in lose yourself in this world for little while and laugh cry. You know, s some fun come out in safe out. That was it was good. I won't people smiling having fun. When the movie on wake up the next day, I got some text from our friends, they woke up the next day thinking about mad. I just thought about that scene in the movie eleven thank you. That's what you want sticks with them. That's what you want. Yeah. Well, I mean you know this probably better than you'd like to know by now but you've had a lot of those successes where you have the title now is the actor whose movies have made more. Than anyone in the history of Hollywood. A lot of people. It's well yeah let's like fifteen billion dollars worldwide. Does that number mean anything to you, it means I did a lot of movies that people liked or a lot of people went to see the movie that I was in, or I made a, a good choice of a franchise to stay part of that? I enjoy myself, and I'm glad that a lot of people enjoyed them also nothing to do with you, though. Come on, you're in all those movies. It's not just franchise. I was. Star Wars stored. Yes, I would have been starting wars without me. You know, fortunately, I had an interesting part in it, and I had a great character that was great Jurassic Park was arrested part, or would have been dressy part without me saying hold onto you. But, but hey I said it people say is on the teaser, I own it. And being part of the marvel universe come on, you know, hard to beat that. And to be a character that has such a dominant place in the series. In terms of we is to those superheroes guy without powers who can wheel so much power over. Those guys do have powers and being able to inhabit it and embodied at embrace it in a real count away and just love it. Those kind of things that drained about when I was a kid of being that superhero, or a superhero, somebody will Kate or somebody with some powers, somebody who do this other being forced into enough to be in a franchise that has those kinds of characters in it, and allows me to watch myself, do things that I thought I would do when I was a kid even movie like criminals in frozen. Awesome. It is. Can't beat it. So I've been very fortunate. And I understand that. And I know that, that number it means something, but a lot of other people who in some of those movies, they can add those same numbers, two their names to because as long as you're into credits, you can say that, right? So it's not like I was driving those films. I was in some films that were driven by a popular opinion that allowed a lot of people to come see them, and I was fortunate enough to be there. Are you made them better? How about that? I'll just give you I'll take you take that you talked about marvel cinematic universe. I told you before we started talking Bree Larson. We're talking about you. And man, she talks about you. I think she called you her Yoda, this wise Mandic that always knew the answer, always do the right thing to do whose, instincts were so good. I was reading something Scarlett Johansson said about you along those similar lines. And is that nice to hear that people?.

"Fused. He might just be the coolest man on the planet. Samuel Jackson returns to talk glass and his remarkable career. Hey, guys, I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another edition of happy. Sad confused so pleased to be with you guys today to talk to the one and only Mr. Samuel Jackson. He is. Of course, the ultimate in cool. The man with all the swagger and the talent to back it up, and he is returning to the night Shamlan averse, if we want to call it that with the eagerly anticipated glass, I can't believe this movie exists. This is for those that know me a little bit or those that just know me, you know, casually on the podcast, or whatever you might not be surprised to know that I'm a huge unbreakable fan any any movie. Fan was on breakable. I've always been obsessed with us film. And to the point where what year was the two thousand ten two thousand ten I actually pitched to near Comecon, and and and and along with my friends at TV, we put together a tenth anniversary, retrospective of unbreakable and ward Shamlan to near Comecon to talk about it. And thus. A friendship was born with night. I've known him for eight years now going on nine and he's so talented, so. Society. I went to the premiere last night for glass here. New York seeing it for the second time and the way he introduced the film his parents were there his his generosity of spirit was really contagious. He's he's a good guy. And I'm happy for all the success. He's experienced in the last few years, especially after taking some knocks. You know, this is the the nature of any career. You don't ever just have hit after hit after hit? But for Shamlan. He no he he started with such remarkable films like like the success and breakable signs. And then, you know, then he got some knocks, but since directing the low budget horror film, the visit and then split which knocked my brain out of my head when I found out it was an unbreakable sequel and now with glass poise to make a ton of money by all by. L reports he's back on top. And I'm happy for him. So glass comes out this Friday as I tape this. It stars, of course, James McEvoy, and Bruce Willis and Sarah Paulson. She's great at it. And my guest today on happy. Second fused, Mr. Samuel L Jackson, his second visit to the podcast the last one was for myspace grin, the Tim Burton film that he was in a few years back that was short. Visit that was just like a twenty minute chat. This is much longer conversation. Much more recruiter conversation, and man, he is awesome. I mean, I've talked to Sam many many many times over the years that's the benefit of a career like Sam where he makes two movies minimum a year. So he's kind of always doing press never had a chance to talk to at this at this length, and I'll be honest in the early going in the early years of talking to Sam Jackson. I think I like many people was intimidated to a degree that it made me unable to function as a good interview or a good conversationalist with him because Sam walks into a room, and he is he knows he Sam Jackson in the best way possible. He's not an asshole about it. He's just very self possessed and confident, and if you ask a stupid question, he'll say what does that mean know what killed just like batted away? So you have to kind of be on your game with Sam Jackson. But I think I've been doing this long enough, and I've known Sam long enough that I think of keyed into the way to have a. Conversation with him. And this is this is a fantastic chat. He's so open and honest, and funny and smart, and I was delighted the entire time. And I think you will be too. We cover a lot for those that don't know digging a little bit into his past is fascinating, you know. Most people started to see him probably in Pulp Fiction that was like the big movie where Sam Jackson exploded onto the scene, but he'd been around for a bit. He done Spike Lee films..
