"Annie McCarrick was the only child of parents John and Nancy McCarrick. She was born in March of nineteen sixty six and lived with her parents in Bayport on Long Island in the great state of New York. She was very close with her parents. John was a retired New York City. Police officer cheers to the boys and girls and blue and Nancy was a school administrator. Helping to educate and raise America's Youth Nancy's parents were born in Ireland and anti grew up loving Irish culture. In fact Bayport was populated with thousands of Irish emigrants and anti grew up steeped in Irish Culture Irish Catholic traditions while she was enrolled at skidmore college. This was in nineteen eighty seven and took a trip to the Emerald Isle. She fell in love with Ireland and transferred to National University of Ireland at Maynooth and Dublin to finish her B. A after she graduated. Her parents insisted that she returned to the US to get a graduate degree which she did obtaining a masters degree in English from Su in y Stony Brook but in January of Nineteen ninety-three against mom and Dad's best wishes then twenty five year old. Anne returned to Ireland now. She had lots of friends from her college days. There and it sounds like that's really where her heart was. Well she is going to need somewhere to live when she returns there. So while looking for a flat to lease she's going to shack up with some of her old friends. This is an engaged couple. Their Names Hillary Brady which just point out. That's that's a man baby and read a fortune. Hillary was the brother of an ex boyfriend of Annie's his name is Phillip Brady. She eventually settled in the idyllic upscale seaside suburb of Dublin. Called this is called sandymount. Where one of her literary idols. The poet James Joyce had once resided even though she already had a graduate degree anti plan to take courses at Saint Patrick's training college to get her degree in education so she could teach high school English. She supported herself by working long hours as a waitress at a place called Cafe Java where customers loved the pretty sweet young American girl that worked there her best friend from Bayport blue point high school on Long Island. Linda Ring House said of Anne. She had a love affair with Ireland quote. She loved the Food. She loved the people she loved music. She loved the books and she loved the scenery. She jokingly says she even loved the plants. Linda said the Anti told her quote. It's almost like I lived there in a previous life. Anne was five foot eight inches tall so a tall woman was strong features intense eyebrows in an unruly. Curly dark hair. She has been described as vivacious and friendly a total people person who loved company who was always smiling and outgoing but probably a little naive in general about people. Now let's take a moment here to address the setting for our listeners. Who aren't familiar with Ireland and the Dublin area specifically the Republic of Ireland is a Democratic Nation. Which had a population in nineteen ninety three the year? The anti moved there of three point. Five eight million people now. It's a separate country from Northern Ireland. Which is much smaller and is part of the United Kingdom the quiet residential area of Dublin. Where Anne lived is just six kilometers or about three point. Seven five miles from downtown. Ireland is a very safe country. In general and two thousand seventeen for example there were only forty one homicides sandymount where Anne's flat was was one of the safest areas of Dublin. Anti told friends that she felt much safer there than she did. Back home in New York. In fact one of the women who worked with Anne at Cafe Java said the anti would often walk home alone. Sometimes this is even at like three in the morning are a captain onto the disappearance. A little warning here though I Anne was not abducted in the sense that no one claims to have seen her being tossed into a vehicle or to have heard a scream or anything of that nature so we are going to go through about three days of what we know and included in. This are some things that have been reported but may not actually be confirmed. These could some of these things are unconfirmed so as you will see. There is no clear time stamp here in our timeline where we can say for certain okay. Here is when things started to go wrong or at this time we know Anne is in trouble. The three days we are going to go through will be a Thursday Friday and Saturday with really the day in question primarily being the Friday march twenty sixth nineteen ninety-three. Okay so listen closely and captain chime in if anything I say gets confusing okay. The police are Guard D. as the Irish national police forces called were able to reconstruct some of Anne's movements leading up to her disappearance. We know that she worked at Cafe Java on Thursday evening and when she finished her shift she had said that she would come in the next day. Which would be Friday this to collect her wages and drop off some homemade pies. She was was quite the baker so often the restaurant or whatever. You WanNa call Cafe Java. They would pay her to to bake things at home and then she would bring them in and they would. They would sell them there. Her next scheduled shift was on Saturday. Okay so Thursday. Evening she works tells her employer or co workers. I'm coming in tomorrow to collect my wages and drop-off these homemade pies however she's not technically working on Friday. That's her day off her. Next actual work shift schedule is on Saturday. So this leads us to the Friday morning. Yes that's correct what we know that takes place early on Friday morning. We have her two roommates. Who says that they they kind of say goodbye to Anne at this point. These are two ladies that she shared her flat with and Sandymount and a complex called Saint. Catherine's Court the two other ladies is Ida Walsh and Jill to me. Were headed off to visit their families and what they popped into. Annie's room simply just to say goodbye. Hey we're getting ready to leave at this time. They say the Anne was sitting up in bed and she was knitting. She told IDA and Jill this she planned to go for a walk that day. And we're going to refer to this. I this to me seems more of a planned hike. Not just a walking around town situation but in all the reports is often referred to as a walk hiking seems to be something the anti did fairly regularly. And we'll get into that a little bit more. That's fairly important to this. The story now the two of them her two roommates say that they left the flat at eight fifty. Am and so now. Anne is going to have the apartment to herself for that weekend. She did have some upcoming plans as well. She planned a dinner party for herself at the flat with friends to celebrate her birthday now her there was about what five days before. Yeah so we know that she had some plants and we have a general version for that weekend of what the plans are to be. But now we're going to start getting into some things that we don't know exactly what happened but we also know that the following weekend so she has plans for that weekend Saturday. I'M GONNA make some food for my friends. We're GONNA have a little kid together here following week. My mother's GonNa come into down correct. So she's got things that she's looking forward to as well you know she's got Friday off depends on if you like your mother or your friends She's got Friday off. She tells her her employer. Hey I'm gonNA stop by for these reasons we know she's scheduled to work on Saturday. Her dinner parties going to be after her shift on Saturday. And then as you stated mom is coming into not town not just the town into the country to visit me and about a week now. We do know some things that happened for certain one. We have CICI TV footage that captured Anne at the Allied Irish Bank and Sandymount. Sometime before eleven. Am Right. I get a little frustrated here with these reports? Captain because it's it's closed circuit. Tv FOOTAGE SAYING THAT. This is some time before eleven am so to me. It's not really clear how this timeframe is not more specific or more exact cause editing on video every season. Tv camera there clock is always wrong. Yeah we're on. We've done like three hundred eighty episodes so we've covered well over one hundred cases anytime their security footage involved. Dave never seem to have the clock right. Right is a tricky thing. It's it's it's very. What time is it now? Nobody KNOWS ABOUT US. So it says sometime before eleven. Am and the reports. That I've found. Now she is visible on the CC TV footage wearing a knee length. Coat and carrying a Satchel at the bank. She is they're chatting and talking with staff who say they knew her? These are people that say not only was that Anne but we we know her. Not just you know as a as a customer whatever. We've seen her multiple times. They're apparently there are a few different versions. And you and I were talking about this in the garage. Earlier of what her activities were were that day and were What time is it now Who KNOWS Clocks are off by about our. There are stories that say she was simply making a deposit or withdrawal right the more specific reports that I've read. Captain say that she was actually transferring an account to this branch from another branch from a different area of town.

This was the day before my grandmother other died of cancer and I remember my mom sank to me. Oh say goodbye to grandma because she's very ill and I knew that but then she died ride the next day and I just remember because I was looking at postage snaps that I collected at the time of dead presidents and I was like Wow Washington stead Jefferson's Jefferson's dead grandma step that would be fine except for me being on duck in the long run sheldon realize that one day his time would also come decades later. That story reemerged in his life. He was a young professor at Skidmore College. He was searching for a book in the library when something in the fraud section caught his eye but was a book by a recently deceased cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker and that one was called the birth and death of meaning than in the first paragraph Becker says I want to understand what makes people act the way they do and I said Oh me too. Finally somebody not writing turgid jargon. That's a non pharmacological intervention for insomnia just asking a straightforward straightforward question you know what makes people act the way that they do show some more books on the shelf by the same author site grab the next book the denial Nihil of Death and again the first paragraph Becca writes the idea of death. The fear of it haunts the human animal like nothing else else. It is a main spring of human activity and in my gut that brought me way back to being eight years old I I I knew that that statement was at the very least true for my own life and suspected that it was true for most folks looks as well. Sheldon reached out to friends. Tom Presents key and Jeff Greenburg like him. They were young psychologists. All three of them fell in love with Ernest Becker books. The central idea captivated them was that people construct mental defenses to ward it off the fear of death. The three psychologists wrote up a paper elaborating on this concept. They would eventually call this idea terror management theory. They sent off their paper to a top journal certain they were going to rock the world of psychology. We didn't hear anything for about six months and then we got the review in the paper was rejected with a one sentence review. The reviewer said something along the lines of I have no doubt that that these ideas are of no interest whatsoever any psychologists alive or dead so this is a bit of a blow well well Jeff and Tom said Oh. I don't think they like it and be an even more immature than they. I said no they love it. They're just being coy but it turns out they weren't because the same paper was then rejected at almost every psychology journal sometime in later the researchers ran into the president of the American Psychological Association at a conference and the asked him why the people had been rejected and we just said hey we you think these are good ideas to which he replied they might be but psychology is an empirical discipline. you guys are experimental. Boura mountains psychologists and so why not try to gather evidence in support of Bekker's claims and it was in response onced to that suggestion that we generated what we call terror management theory which is basically just our effort to take all of Bekker's is ideas to generate hypotheses that we could subject to empirical scrutiny so one of the criticisms of Becker as you alluded to a second ago is that his work was not empirical he was making claims that he didn't have evidence for he was making these these intuitive leaps involving logic and philosophy but they won't based John on empirical data and experimentation and and you set out to try and fix that one of your first experiments involve judges in Tucson Hooah dealing with prostitutes prostitutes. Tell me about the study what found sure certainly so you know a nutshell. What terror management theory states is that the uniquely glee human awareness of death gives rise potentially debilitating existential terror that we manage hence the term terror management management by embracing culturally constructed belief systems that give us each a sense that life has meaning and we have value and as you? I said what would people said back in the days in the nineteen eighties as well you know this is philosophical and psychoanalytic speculation. What we reason does is that if becker is right if our beliefs about reality serve to minimize death anxiety won't let's see what happens if we remind that some people of their own mortality because what should happen is they should cling more likely to their beliefs so the first study was is done on municipal court judges in Tucson Arizona. I think we had about thirty judges and we randomly divided them into two groups have for the judges judges were reminded of their mortality by in the middle of a bunch of questionnaires being asked to just write down their thoughts and feelings about their own mortality mortality and then we show them actual court case of an alleged prostitute which was the most common crime. Tucson's municipal court at the time and we just ask them well. How much bail would you set. That's the amount of money that you have to pay to not be imprisoned until your trial. So what we found is in the control roll condition. The judges set an average bail of fifty dollars and that was good because that was the average bail for that crime at the time however the judge is reminded that they were going to die. they set a nine times higher bail an average of four hundred and fifty five dollars in what was astonishing is not only the magnitude of that difference but also the vociferousness the judges resistance when we told them at the end of the study what we had done. They just said there's no way that your idiot death questionnaire could could have in any way altered the way that. I objected this particular case so I guess the tail message as if you're going to court for a traffic ticket you better hope that the judge hasn't driven past the summit. Jerry on the way to court that day.

"And weather station. Thank you read George Morris in another day for shock a little bit under the weather and him look outside. I hope it gets a little bit nicer later this afternoon, at least for Madison Vanenburg day the capital region. And how you said your daughter's going, even right? We don't even go to north colony. We're in south colony and they're kind of embracing this day. Also, they're handing out tickets at our school district. How many people actually show up to this is gonna be a lot? There's a lot of buzz. There is a lot of buzz and ABC's in town right is that's what's happening. The finale is coming up on Sunday. So they're going to each of the three contestants hometowns and showing where they come from and showing their community. And it's not particularly this showcase each hometown. And in our case they're having a pep rally at shaker for her than they're having a parade and a concert at the crossings later this afternoon. So just be aware if you're in that area near San creek or Albany shaker. There are going to be some traffic issues around. Four four thirty five. I would say right there at six o'clock. I would expect some traffic concern. And if you thought you were going to the crossings this afternoon. Just pick a different spot. Although it I don't know. I don't I don't think it's open to the is it open to the public Dina ticket. Actually, that's a really good question. Ticket. So I don't know if maybe they're not letting people into specific areas, I'm not really sure, but either way is a really great opportunity for her. And I've been watching her listening to her and actually watched the entire show on Sunday night, which I haven't done yet. I saw her perform three times, she solid. I'll tell you. She's phenomenal. No, I have here from north colony schools the part at the crossings is open to the public. Okay. That is a right. So there is that the the pep rally is at the high school, which is I don't think open. Right. That's just for the students students only. And then there is a public performance at the crossings, rain or shine. So that there's a parade that will start at four fifteen will go from metro park road, which is kind of the backside where the Marriott sorry. And then then there's a pray that will go into the crossings still perform their as just a heads up though. No coolers, no backpack. Right. The aware of that. If you go in the entrance to the crossings is closed starting at noon. So it's actually a few hours ahead of Ryan will come through. We'll have settled buses going from. Whereas there assault from the north colony district. So they'll have C J buses will provide transportation from the sacred high school parking lot to the crossings. It's a pretty big undertaking. It is and then they also have other areas between San creek middle school and the crossing. So just be aware that whole area is going to be very congested today. I would say between like one in six I wonder how Madison feels for this part of it. Because it's one thing to kind of be in the cocoon of the show and even your used to performing now, and they have their audience there for the show. But now that you're kind of back home in the center of attention is a little different. It's funny. Mariah for mak- was also from shakers right on the voice a year or two ago. And it was kind of the same thing where they shoot out there and shuttle bunch episodes, and then came home and was still walking the hallways in between classes, and you can't tell what happened. And then, you know, you're back and forth, and you're kind of in between these when you're out there. You're. Just one of our many are still on the show. But then when you're here, you're the center of attention bouncing between Hollywood and your high school. It's a very very sturdy. The rumor out there is that Katy Perry is going to be. I don't know about that. That's the rumor going around my daughter's high school. So I'm not sure I'd be very surprised us. We're actually in attendance. But how cool would that be that will be aware? It's Madison Vanderberg appreciation day. So let's re route her on. I haven't odd fascination with family Michelle riggi, you mean of Palazzo rigi. Yeah. So masugi and her husband Ron have the beautiful home there. Serta the socialites and they have home on Broadway. And I follow her on Facebook. So not that long ago. Maybe a week a week ago. She posted the someone, that's stolen their lawn jockey. And she was asking for someone to return it no questions asked in maybe a reward. And then yesterday she had posted that she had captured on video a car pulling up to her house to girls hopping out laughing digging up tulips throwing them in the trunk and driving on apparently, she's friends with dog the bounty, hunters wife, Beth Chapman. So she reached out to Beth Beth ran the plates and found out who these two girls are. And so they're they're asking for people to help help track them down. They believe against Moore's not saying, they believe is probably just a Skidmore college prank or something. But the radio. As have said that they've been very tolerant of some bad behavior on and around their property from the Skidmore students, including people going skinny dipping in their pool. And so people wonder what's the big deal? And why should we care? But but I saw to that that you said that you've follow on Facebook. I there are hundreds of comments and reactions about this people, obviously are kind of interested in what happens. Listen, I don't care how much money you have or how posh your home. Is.

"Like Ruta Vega was going to be just one step further a little too sweet a little too little she a little little extra for maybe Parsons, it probably would have gone over better. That in retrospect, I was feeling the turnips day. But so this video is fun though. Because when you say you've got a pretty big YouTube presence. I I mean, I had like six hundred thousand viewers on it. Another one was like a pasta speeded had like a million. I was saying these are it's like kind of millennial food network at this point. I mean, definitely I think the thing about our video program, which is what's so awesome. About it is that we are really encouraged to just be ourselves. And we don't overact or act at all in any of the videos and the way that they get edited is in a way where we keep all of the mistakes and the silliness and the mess ups right into the video. So you feel like you're in the kitchen just cooking with a friend and. With a professional who's like has a tidy workstation and then like is chopping their vegetables perfectly. Every time in doesn't make any mistakes, and you give each other shit. That was the other thing. I noticed. Okay. We give each other shit. That's the other part of it like the messy nest that you see is that they celebrate our interpersonal relationships just as much, and that's what makes the video so fun viewers is that like sort of you're supposed to sorta be characters over time. Like, you kinda notice the personalities, and I think not at all we've been given literally zero direction as far as being a specific someone just so happens that there are a lot of vibrant personalities in the test kitchen naturally. And so it lends itself well to all of this sort of debate that's kind of kitchens in general, though, like you when you when you're hot space, a lot of people their personalities tend to come out totally and food is so such internal passionate part of every person in the kitchen that a lot of fiery debates arise just by nature. I want to eventually get into the nitty gritty of your day to day what you're doing. But I wanna start just how you even got into this job. Because I think to a lot of home cooks. This is sounds like one of those dream gigs writing for bone apetite and cooking for bone apetite every day is like that would be very cool. But like, what's your cooking background? It will just would like to acknowledge that it is. In fact, very cool, and it is the dream job. I have the job that I do. Yes. How did I get here? I oh, I was not interested in pursuing a career in cooking until my sophomore year of college up until that point. I had a strong interest in art history and was headed for a degree in art history. Got a degree in art history from Skidmore college. But during my time in college, I went abroad, and I studied in Florence and I lived with a little old lady named Graziella spoke zero English and cooked like a frigging pro. And because she was widowed. And like seventy five years old. She had nothing to do all day, but go to the market shop and then cook elaborate meals for me. And that was the first time that I was kind of like, oh, that's too vicious. You know, like I had never I can't remember a food experience before that moment. So you like like lucked your way into a surrogate Italian, grandma. Yeah. That's I mean. Shutout. Wow. Did you did you like were you in the kitchen with her like learning where she like showing how to do stuff or? Yes. So I was in school at the time. But like as we all know study abroad is kind of a joke. And so like, I maybe took a class a day in the late afternoon. And then I would come home, and that's very Italian approach education Hoda eventually as we got to know each other better. And as I began to learn how to speak Italian because of course, she we couldn't really communicate. She started allowing me to come in the kitchen and cook with her, and so she would share her recipes for like her tomato sauce, which is literally the simplest thing in the entire world. But somehow was also the most epic thing I've ever tasted..

"Well, it got even more serious for you. You went further south to Georgia and were were jailed a second time. What happened then well after I sat in in Maryland, I went back to college. I don't know how I got where I was going. We didn't have any money. We didn't have social media somehow, we just got different places, and I went back to one hundred college I was a freshman there in New York. And then as a result of the sit in I there were visits from some of the snick student on violent coordinating committee. Recruiters Reverend Charles rod and Charles Jones who were already in the deep south, and they felt that it would help the movement in southwest Georgia. If northern students came down and help to register black voters, so they actively recruited some of us whose names had been given a actions that we had taken either in our own communities or through the publicity of our citizens. And at that point, I knew I had to leave school, and I knew I had to go. So my best friend, Kathy Collins, Kathy con will. And I she was at Skidmore college. I was at hunter. We said this. What we're going to do. And we talked to our parents and her parents were not very supportive, but mine were and so we went we were recruited. We went to intense trainings for nonviolent behavior. And we attended school in Tennessee called the Highlander folk school that Pete Seeger and others had been involved in and progressive whites in the south had trained farm workers to protests being mistreated sharecroppers. So we were a part of this whole nonviolent army of black and white who wanted to make America better. So we got on the plane, and again, I'd never been to Atlanta or anywhere in the south. It was so hot and we were called student field workers. Because we wanted to. Addenda FAI with the sharecroppers in the people that we would be registering to vote now, the real brave people or the people who took us in because these sharecroppers and school teachers and others who were living and had jobs and had to survive in the south. Could be fired from their jobs for allowing black and whites to live in their home for registering people to vote, and we were taking in in Lee county by wonderful woman named mama. Golly. Raines who was kinda running what you would call a overground or underground railroad of her own and she was receiving us and Kathy. And I were, you know, New Yorkers, and we weren't aware of how the heat was going to be what it was going to be like to live without a telephone. We out in the middle of nowhere. At that point. This is nineteen sixty two so Goodman chain Swarner had not been murdered yet. So we were part of that early wave of northern students black and white who were recruited to do voter registration for the most part and community organizing. It wasn't easy for you though. You did eventually get arrested a second time. But what was that four? This second time we were marching in Albany, Georgia to protest, the beating of a pregnant woman, and I was with a group of marchers who were marching on city hall, and I'm I think we were I put into the Albany county jail there because Dr king Martin was all an SEAL see the southern Christian leadership conference was working with snick in Albany, Georgia movement. And at one point we were behind bars, and one thing that we were told in our training is you're always carry a toothbrush with you. Because you never know when you're going to be jailed and have to spend the night in jail, and it's terrible not to brush.

The candidate for the United States Senate for the Republican party in New York state shell Farley, there's an upcoming event that has news on Sunday October twenty four Skidmore college. That's Saratoga springs. New York shell Farley will be debating with Kirsten gillibrand the sitting Senator right now from the Democratic Party shell a very good evening to you. Thank you for this. And I'm glad you're going to have an opportunity for debate. This is a New York that is deeply blue you are with the Republican camp. So you're always the challenger. What is it that you will make available to the people of New York on Sunday, October twenty first on your presentation that they need to know about what you wanna do for New York? Good evening to you show. John. Thank you. It is wonderful to be here. Yes. I think that New Yorkers need an an alternative they need somebody who is going to put New York. I think about New York and help New York not my challenger who is on. Everybody's top ten lists for running for president. It is outrageous a million people have left New York since the last census, which isn't any great surprise when property taxes are the highest in New York by county than they are at any other state. It's crazy and a tax Bill really hurt high tax states like my my my state of New York and your state of Connecticut quite a bit. Because there wasn't anybody there fighting for this elimination of the salt deduction, which we lost coal Turkey, and then with a ten thousand dollar cap. So when I go to Washington, I will increase that cap. And most importantly, I will bring back the monies that New York is sending to Washington it was forty eight billion dollars last year and bring them back to New York. So we can lower everyone's property taxes. I completely. Agree with you shell. So I'm going to press on on this issue. What you're saying is so commonsensical, and you're campaigning against the democratic machine. That counts on higher and higher and higher taxes. What are you here on the trail from New Yorkers who pay these taxes to are? They aware of how out of step New York is with their with other states. Well, sadly, they are aware and they are proving it with their feet. I mean, I'm constantly traveling around the state, and I hear the exact same thing from person to person which is their kids no longer live in New York because they couldn't get a job in New York. So now, they're kids live in Florida or Texas so their grandkids now live in Florida or Texas, and they're like, well, we're retired. So we thought we should move. So we can be close to the grandkids. But they can't move because they can't sell their house and their entire network is in their house. So we've got to bring back a job to New York. And instead my opponent is traipsing around the country. I mean, she was in Georgia yesterday. She was Tennessee on Saturday. This doesn't sound like somebody who was focused on New York. I mean, I was up in Jamestown in western New York meeting with dairy farmers to talk about how great this new. The new trade Bill is, you know, amongst Mexico, the US and Canada and how Kirsten gillibrand and the other senators need to pass it. I am not counting on her to pass anything. From Ben proposed by our president. But I certainly would because this will really help dairy farmers and dairy is fifty percent of the agriculture revenues in New York state. We've got to do something on the other thing that I propose which will help a lot of New York City residents. Why is it you can only deduct the interest on your mortgage, but you can't deduct your rent? I mean, so many millennials are dying because not only can they not say for a down payment on a ho house. They also can't they can't pay off their student loans. Right terrible. So I propose three thousand dollars a month. Thirty six thousand dollars a year off the top of your federal taxes. It would be a big difference. Terrific. I shall I wish I'd been around in one thousand nine hundred seventy good heavens. So. Why why didn't anybody ever think of this? I mean, we're giving. All right. You just said the inequity here, you're you're applying yourself to needs for the New Yorker financial needs, which is driving everything. And you mentioned the success. The Republican party is at as having after passing the tax cut Bill and jobs act of two thousand seventeen do New Yorkers these New York were leaving are they aware of the prosperity. That were now enjoying everywhere, including New York. Do they understand where that comes from deregulation and the tax cut Bill? Well, unfortunately, John, it is just not showing up in New York. I mean, I look at the unemployment levels, which are at all time lows. It's fantastic. Right. Three point six percent. Unfortunately, New York state is four point six percent. And if you take New York City out of it, it's four point nine percent. It is a drastic increase. Oh, this is the upstate problem. You're talking about the upstate. Yes. Yes. I question, right. When I traveled to buffalo. This is many years ago when Mrs Clinton was campaigning for. For the seat that you're now campaign for I was aware that there are several different stories of New York. It's a vast country and some of them are very unhappy and have been unhappy for a long time. Buffalo was one of them. The the the the upper Hudson river valley and all along the mohawk. Very unhappy stories, John you're absolutely right. I was at the buffalo airport yesterday and actually met with the buffalo news. So I I hear these problems all the time we just need somebody. I mean, your Dillon Brandon all talk, you know, I want somebody who's actually going to do something. And that is what I do. I negotiate for living. And I think we have to negotiate the best deal possible for New York. And that's what I will do as US Senator you're running against a democratic machine that it is in dug in in place well-financed, the governor supervises it the mayor of New York feeds it how is it running against a machine? Do people wanna hear something new shell or do? They turn away. How what is your experience? I think people definitely want to hear something new. But again. They're tired of just listening. They actually want action, and they want to see concrete ideas, which is why people love this rent idea. But they want somebody who really represents their ideals and values. I mean, another big difference is Kirsten gillibrand has turned her back on Israel by supporting the Iran nuclear deal voting against the Taylor force act and then taking her name off legislation. She actually wrote and sponsored this anti shocking. I'm glad you reminded me of that shell I reported last week with my different, Malcolm Hoenlein. I was shocked at the demonstration and indifference of Kirsten gillibrand, and and Malcolm Hoenlein Conference of presidents. He's shocked by to everyone who remembers where she comes from a shocked by that conduct. It's it's it's crazy. And I think she has forgotten that she in fact is a New Yorker because she is so focused on running for president and appealing to these national liberal activists than coalitions. Let's I want to press you on this too. I know as foreign affairs, and it's not about taxes, which drive everybody's concern here. But does it make any sense to you? How it is that she's become indifferent to the very critical Jewish vote in New York and New York City big donors devoted Democrats and Kirsten gillibrand is deaf to their concerns Schumer is more sensitive than Kirsten gillibrand. Well, there's no question about that is she is she is completely deaf. I think it's a great way of putting it, but I think that the whole Democratic Party has moved so far to the left. I couldn't believe she was just at a rally, and she was introduced by Linda Sarsour, and Linda, our source said that Kirsten gillibrand was you know, one of their people on the inside. I this is not a connection that I would want to promote if I were her because Lena, Linda, Sarsour is a is a fan of Louis Farrakhan, you know, very anti Israel. And I think this is one of the reasons why we can and we will defeat Kirsten gillibrand November October twenty first Sunday at Skidmore college, and our people invited to come and see it in in the in the in Saratoga springs can regular people shoppers. Yeah. Watch you you you have to sign up for a ticket. But you can get those online Skidmore has availability.

It is a crisis situation and a little bit about your son, Dan, he he died four years ago from a drug overdose. He did. And we are hoping that no other need a perfect world. No other family would ever have to go through that again. But he was a he was a good kid until until he discovered drugs. And and we spent the time since since it passing trying to advocate and work with other families that that are going are going through this. I think remarkable what you're doing. And this event will take place. Now win will the the walk take place. Who are we do we get? Are you still there? I'm sorry. I thought we got disconnected win. When will the the walk take place?

Correct. Yes. We want to raise awareness of addiction and try to educate people. Get the word out that it can happen anywhere to me. Very personally. It's critical to reach young people and young families. Parents. They just the more ammunition. They can have when they go into this arena. And it's going to hit families the better off they're going to be at least is my where I come from. You know? It's funny. I I have friends who have a son who has a problem and they've been struggling with him now for several years, and they're afraid that you know, it's just not gonna end well because you get addicted of things, and you just can't seem to break away or go to rehab. I mean, the whole thing agency. How do they ever get started on all this stuff? But the fact is there are a lot of families out there probably going through. Well, maybe not suffering. Exactly the pain you have. But there are those who have lost children from this. So this whole idea to get the knowledge out there, maybe to help them spot something early on would that be would that be one way? It is. And and again, part of part of the idea of the walk is that they're going to be organizations there that have services available to those struggling with substance use San alcoholism, addiction and not only for the individual. But for family members as well. Yielded? Do you ever think? How did your son get started? I mean, I think about what they want to hear these stories to go who was the person that introduced them to that in the first place.

"World of academics. Matt hopelessness is with us from Saratoga springs, New York's get more college. He's a historian his book is out then they came for me Martin niemoeller the pastor who defied the Nazis mad. Thanks for joining me. How are you? I'm great glad to be with you. Well, let's start with a very basic question who was Martin niemoeller and tell me about the widespread. Ignorance and misunderstanding about him. Well, Martin niemoeller was a German Lutheran pastor he was born in eighteen ninety to live for ninety two years until nineteen Eighty-four cover. So a biography of niemoeller requires covering a lot of the major events of German history that he was involved in. He grew up in conservative, nationalist household. His father was a Lutheran pastor. And instead of following his father into the pasture joined the German navy and became a submarine commander in World War One earned the iron cross in nineteen seventeen. And after the German monarchy was overthrown after the Germans were defeated in World War One he changed routes in life and attended theology school for four years and was ordained. A Lutheran pastor in nineteen twenty four. He didn't take up his first congregation until nineteen thirty one. When he moved to Berlin a suburb of Berlin called Dahlem where he became the pastor of one of the wealthiest and most influential Protestant congregations in Germany. Couple years later, as you know, Adolf Hitler comes to power and niemoeller because of his nationalist conservative sympathies is very happy to see Hitler came to power. He was very unhappy with the Weimar Republic that existed before Hitler came to power. It was too liberal to democratic socialist. So he welcomed Hitler's rise to power primarily because he thought that the national socialist movement, the Nazis would link up with the Protestant church, and there would be sort of a new alliance of church and state and together the Protestant church in the Nazi state would lead Germany into a glorious future. It took him a little while to realize that wasn't going to be the case. And that's when he turned into a that's when he began to defy Hitler. Tell me tell me tell me how niemoeller resistance was almost entirely directed at Hitler's church policy and not his racial policy, targeting Jews, or his foreign policy of war and territorial aggression. Yeah. So that's exactly when when you ask the first question, you know, what? Where where are the misunderstandings regarding Martin niemoeller? Well, this is one of them. I think a lot of people consider niemoeller to be a hero of the resistance. And that would mean someone who resisted Nazism root and branch somebody who resisted the Nazi racial policy and foreign policy. But in fact, niemoeller was primarily concerned with how the Nazis were treating the Protestant churches, and in particular, he was outraged by the fact that the Nazis and Hitler were supportive of of a particular movement within Protestantism in Germany, and this movement was called somewhat confusingly, but it was called the German Christians, the German Christians were ardent, nationalist, very pro Hitler. And they also believe that Christianity and Protestant is should reject any notion. That of related to the Old Testament. They wanted to remove any Protestants from within the church who had any Jewish heritage. So a lot of Germans with you. Heritage had converted to Protestantism. And it was these people the Protestants of Jewish descent who the German Christians wanted to remove from the church. This is much like the Nazis one removed Jews from the civil service and other important places university post and stuff like that. So this is what really outraged niemoeller and his colleague Dietrich von Hoffer, and the theologian Karl Bart. What started off his defiance was that? The state was trying to encroach on the territory of the church. Tell me about the relationship between niemoeller and Barth and bond Hoffer were they close. Yeah. They're three very interesting characters niemoeller was very much a practical man, he was very much into doing sort of the work of the. So-called confessing church. That was the church that was in opposition to the German Christians Dietrich bond Hoffer at the time was very young well in his twenties theologian and car, of course, is the famous reformed or Calvin est. Theologian who was primarily lived in the world of theology. Niemoeller had a conservative nationalist pass bond. Hoffer had a liberal cosmopolitan past and bar was similar to barn. Hoffer? So they had a contentious relationship at first these three guys bond Hoffer linked up very closely with Bart but niemoeller conflicted with both of them on all sorts of issues niemoeller remained fairly supportive of Nazism during these early years, and he didn't hide his support for this nationalist, cause whereas people like Bart and bond Hoffer were opposed to the Nazis from the very start and everything about them, not just their church policy, but also their racial policy and their foreign policy, but he did end up sort of. Moving politically during the thirties becoming more and more critical of Nazism, and he and bond Hoffer embar all sort of teamed up by the mid nineteen thirties in attacking the German, Christians and to a certain extent Hitler state. Mat hocken nice is our guest from Skidmore college the book, then they came for me. Tell us about the famous meeting niemoeller had with Hitler in January nineteen thirty four. Yeah. This is a fascinating moment of Hiller. Really could not understand. Why there were Protestants who would oppose his movement since the process church was notoriously nationalistic, and he certainly couldn't understand why someone like Martin niemoeller a former u boat commander would be opposing national socialism, or at least aspects of it. So we called for a meeting with the highest church leaders of the price and church for January nineteen thirty four and everyone in the church quite excited about this because they were gonna get a chance to finally meet the Fuhr and tell him that they were not political opponents of him. But that they were opposed to infringements on the process church. So niemoeller was looking forward to the meeting. And when they all arrive they are greeted by Hitler shakes. Everybody's hand. Also present is Herman gerring who was the head of the Prussian interior minister. And after greeting each of the pastors and bishops and so on Hitler turned to growing and growing pulled out of his briefcase a transcript and the t read the transcript out loud. It was a transcript of Martin niemoeller speaking on the phone that very morning with a colleague from the process church. The colleague had called up to say are you prepared for the meeting with Hitler niemoeller saying, yes, yes? Yes. And then he sort of ended the conversation quickly with his fellow pastor because he needs to get to the meeting and at the last sentence he said and president Paul von Hindenburg who was going to meet with Hitler just before the meeting will read Hitler his last. Right. And it was meant as a joke, and he wanted to move quickly away from the phone to get to the meeting anyways growing read this transcript out loud and everybody in the meeting was stunned. Nobody knew that niemoeller is phone had been tapped the conservative bishops in the room were outraged that niemoeller would say such a horrible sacrilegious thing at the at this moment, you know, criticizing Hitler and Hindenburg on the phone and so niemoeller was called to the front of the group by Hitler. And Hitler said is this real? I mean is this transcript accurate Andy Moeller said, yes. But I want you to understand we confessing church pastors. Do not oppose you politically. We simply want you to stop supporting the German Christians who are in fact heretics because they want to cleanse the church of all Jewish elements. So he tried to explain. Itself but Hitler in general didn't care about these details, you just simply wanted the opposition from within the church to go away. Hitler's hatred of niemoeller, Matt. And the reasons he had him jailed in nineteen thirty seven as his personal prisoner. Oh, you've got to tell us about that. Yeah. So this meeting was kind of a turning point for niemoeller his initial support for Hitler. And the Nazis was beginning to soften and from nineteen thirty four until nineteen thirty seven he became more outspoken in his criticism of the Nazis and in a famous sermon in nineteen thirty seven he even questioned publicly in his congregation whether or not Hitler was a trustworthy, man. And he was arguing that because Hitler said that he would work with the churches in nineteen thirty three and protect the churches in nineteen thirty three. And yet wasn't doing that. He was in fact, a liar. So niemoeller was arrested on July first nineteen thirty seven in his home by the shop. Oh, and he was brought to you know, an interrogation place in Berlin. And he thought he'd be home in a couple of hours since he'd been interrogated before. And it was not the worst situation except this time around he was imprisoned in a prison in Berlin. Where he was tried for. Voicing political opinions from the pulpit, and he stays in that prison for eight months awaiting trial when he was finally tried. He was found to be guilty. But only of some of the lesser charges as he spent eight months in the prison and the prison, and the the term that he was supposed to serve was seven months. He was released on his release Hitler had him rearrested and called him his personal prisoner where he was held for several years in Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Berlin. And then in Dhaka concentration camp down near Munich. What were those experiences like for niemoeller? Yeah. So in socks in house, and he was very miserable. He was never tortured or never hurt by the Nazis. He was never amid handled by them, but he was in solitary confinement from nineteen thirty eight until nineteen forty one when he was transferred to doc out. And that's solitary confine. It was very difficult for this guy. He's got a very outgoing personality. He was always rounded by family and friends. And now he was alone in a prison cell for three years with very few visitation rights, so he really suffered even considered converting because he had sort of a spiritual dilemma while. He was in soccer in house to Catholicism. Rumors spread across the world that he had converted. In fact, he didn't but he did come close because he's very upset with the price and church and its lack of sort of solidarity an opposition to the German Christians. He didn't convert and he's eventually transferred from socks and it with lots of other famous prisoners to dock out where he held from nineteen forty one until nineteen Forty-five and at dock how he lived in fairly comfortable quarters. He was housed with several Catholic priests, and he was able to talk to them on a daily basis play cards eat meals with even a little chapel within doc. Our they were allowed to gathering have services and stuff like that. So his time in Dhaka was more comfortable, but during that time in doc out his daughter died of disease his son died on the eastern front. And his wife was often very sick and ill trying to deal with all these difficult situations or wife in prison, her sons in the war, Berlin, you know, and much of Germany. Engaged in the war. So her life was very difficult. And so his his position might have gotten a little bit better. But his family didn't when and where did niemoeller I start ticking famous confession. When they came for the communists at cetera. Yes. So that's famous confession. There are many versions of it out there in the world, he first articulated it, and he never as far as I know articulated in the poetic version that we know first they came for the communists, and I did not speak out because I was not a communist, then they came for the trade unionist, and I do not speak out because I was not a trade union, then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was a Jew, then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me poetic version of the confession. No, one has yet tracked down in terms of when he may have said that I I actually think he may not have I, but he did articulate version of the this concession in nineteen forty six starting approximately January in Germany, he articulated this notion of that he was that he someone who had spent time in a concentration camp was also guilty and responsible for what happened in this country because during those years from now. Eighteen thirty three to thirty seven when he was free. He did not stand up for the persecuted groups, the Nazis went after and his whole purpose of voicing this type of confession in Germany was to encourage the German people to acknowledge their guilt, and responsibility. It was something that they were adamantly opposed to and the reason why was because first of all they were suffering horribly at this moment their country was a pile of rubble. They were they had very little access to food and fuel during the winters. They were freezing to death. During other parts of the year. They were starving to death. They're occupied by four..

I grew up in a small upstate New York town Schuylerville New York outside of Saratoga springs. What you come Schuylerville sky for Ville Schuylerville Schuylerville. It's outside of Saratoga springs is where the battle of Saratoga actually took place. It is where general Schuyler in general Burgoyne faced off at the Saratoga landmark battle memorial. Were they smoking Saratoga cigarettes? Yes, yes, they were and they knew where to fight because it was called these era toga landmark battle memorial. Oh, this must be the place. Was one of them wearing dockside IRS and yachting cap? Yes, yes. To show at around us sky general Schuyler wore the the duck. Ciders and general Burgoyne war. I don't know where I'm going pastel. Yes, that's exactly he wore a sweater vest. Was the phrase I was looking for were a sweater vest and and Gulf pants because that's how you dressed in those days. I, in fact lived at the corner of Burgoyne street in Schuylerville. It's like steeped in revolutionary war. History and tradition. And what I used to say on stage is that. On the day that we moved into sky was four years old when we drove all night in a huge pink Plymouth. I don't know why my parents had a huge pink pl-, but it was an it was the kind of car you could launch smaller vehicles from. And we drove all night and it was this was just coming up as we pulled into Schuylerville into our new house. My dad was going to be teaching nearby at Skidmore college, and we drove past the sign that said, welcome to Schuylerville population. Nine hundred fifty four and that afternoon in a Norman Rockwell gesture, the old white haired mayor himself drove out to the sign because we had moved in and change. They bucket o paint. He amended the sign to say and some choose. It was that kind of town. The mill, the paper mill closed two years before we moved in. So it was an impoverished town. The Vietnam war was still on. And with the exception of me with is you have to my family. Every family had someone that was fighting in Vietnam or had returned from Vietnam or hadn't. And my family were lefty. Pinko piece Knicks. We went on peace marches and protested the war. Which I imagine probably upset some of your neighbors. The there was a lot of and and that upset them the fact that we were Jewish upset them. There were several boys who I say that I was beaten up regularly as a child by kids on the way home from school. The truth is I suspect it was only seven or ten times over the course of my childhood, but I was frightened all the time when I was outdoors, I was frightened all the time. There was a particular family had a bunch of boys, any of whom would beat me up if they were in the right mood to. And there were a couple of other kids at school who would just vent their familial rage. At me, I read a lot of comic books. More your favorites when I was. Seven to ten, seven to eleven.

Stall meant as they came into Larssen's newsroom. I didn't own all of them. I at that time I got a quarter week allowance which was enough to buy a comic book, but when it was still Bill Lahrmann, who ran Larkin's newsroom as I sit on the floor and read all of them before I decided which one to buy. And then eventually he sold it to someone else who put up a sign that said, this is not a library, and it made that a little more difficult.

"Of course, it's not just summer jobs, the wage gap runs through and across different industries, Catherine Birla hide studies at. She's a professor of sociology at Skidmore college and also experienced it in our own life. I, I realized it when I became department chair. And when that happens, you actually get to see the salaries in your department. And I discovered that I was actually making less money than my junior colleague and I had had no idea. And what did you do as chair you walk in and you have a conversation with the dean where you advocate for the salaries of your colleagues? In the dean, of course, took one look at where my salary was, and I got a very nice raise that year. I think he was felt guilty. Can you help us unravel a couple of things about the wage gap because there are these conversations that we seem to have over and over again about one women and men in the United States make different amounts of money. When we control for things like education and race, what do we find? Well, the wage gap is complicated. And of course, the first thing people say is, well, it's because women or people of color have LeSage occasion or they have less experienced that. Is it some non-discriminatory factor that explains the wage gap? And it certainly is true that you can find that those factors matter. But when you do statistical analyses that take that into account, you discover that in fact, women and people of color continue on the average to make less money than their white male counterparts do. Due even when you control for meritorious reasons for why someone might make more money than someone else. And so if you think of college faculty, we all have the same educational backgrounds. There are so few people in that line work who don't have PHD's that you've taken that explanatory factor off the table, and then you still see that there's a wage gap. How do we unpacked the role of motherhood here? Because that of course, there's another arguments say, well, women are more likely to take time off after having a child and maybe they go out of the workforce. What do we know from the data? There's something we call the motherhood penalty. And basically we find that women who are mothers, make less money than women who are not even controlling for their years out of the labor force. So there's something that occurs when you're looking at two people and saying, well, this one has children. And she may be paying more attention to them than she is to her job, and therefore we're going to give these opportunities to these other women who are going to not have a obligations outside of the workplace, and therefore they're going to have the opportunity to excel and therefore get a raise. Family issues are another place where the US has a lot of work to do. How does this shakeout for different income brackets? Because I know that college educated women, certainly right out of college do pretty well compared to their male counterparts..
