"Looked for this. You can go back and re listen to our our thoughts on the queer rapin later. I think it was phenomenal. There's no contest here because buick eight was in some ways a warm up for books later you know. A key he grew from his writing is experience. In some ways. I think make later A really solid example of why people who say that king peaked in the eighties are super wrong. Just incredibly incorrect. And you can take that to them. Thank walter bang bang bang. He wants to bite more. Let him even if it draws a little blood. let's give walter taste free flash. The blood is full. The iron that you need so bad. I don't have to give supplements anymore my god. I'm of mine source so pause here This is threatening steve I'm going to say each of these jokes and phoenix. You're going to tell me if they're in good enough taste to keep it. Says this is dr sleep versus the institute in round three child endangerment or objection junction. Okay the pinnacle problematic. Whichever joke those all make it in if not. I'll just bleep them. If editing steve is like i don't know about that favorites. The first yeah. That one's pretty good all right. Listen jokes aside. These books that deal with some heavy heavy heavy stuff. They're also kind of their different looks. The same modern fears about once a month. Think of children's stephen king's officially gotten old enough to start thinking that way. He's seen generations. Grow and learn and be influenced by the world and they're both kind of about that in some interesting ways. The institute was released. You need to know this. After and written during a crisis in america where thousands and thousands of children from other countries were interred in low quality horrible prisons and concentration camps at the united states in mexican. Border like that deals with that topic. It's a much. It's a much more timely book for me than doctors sleep. Dr sleep is contemplative. The institute feels urgent..

Feminist reads a lot And this is like the creme de la creme of that this michelle. It's really really great. So the the one thing. I couldn't pull the through line for is in the thesis statement. She says the line between kerry and the me too movement is really clear. and then i didn't necessarily find textual evidence that pointed that out all the time Yeah i think mostly were. That was supposed to come in was discussions of Some of the changes between kerry's mother in the book and carries mother in the movie where there's kind of an added sex appeal in the movie. It was a very different take on the character. So i think that's partly worth i was supposed to come in but i agreed that for me. I was really excited for for that through. I missed some of it. So i have to go back and reread sarah. Easterner is a uvm professor who i haven't had But i've heard that she's excellent.

How to Reverse Engineer Success with Social Psychologist Ron Friedman
"Let's talk about that. Reverse engineering because you are a psychologist you study top performance in you. Discover something that you really weren't expecting through that process. I'd love to hear more. Yeah what i discovered. Is that most of the people have gone to the top of their profession. They're not relying on talent. They're not relying on practice. In fact there's a problem with the formula that practice will get you to the top and that problem is that you can't practice an idea you've never considered and so the best ideas don't come through hours and hours of practice. They come by looking at what the best in the field or doing and then working backward to figure out how they did it and that turns out to be a remarkably common approach among top performers. So how would you. Ron define reverse engineering. I mean i think a lot of our listeners. Understand it as a general term but like what is your definition. My definition is finding the best in a field and then working backward to figure out how they did it now. In silicon valley the idea of reverse engineering is very well known. It's how he the personal computer and laptops and even the iphone but what most people realize is that reverse engineering is also how stephen king and malcolm glide well learned to write and how painters like claude monet and pablo picasso learned to paint and even how judd appetite learn to write comedy reverse engineering turns out to be far more common than anyone realized.

You've been brilliant. It's the only thing i've followed. I haven't don't have social media's of not when he followed anything fun moment. When stephen king was like oh yeah he because he had a theory right yes but then he actually ended up like i have a theory. I'll tell you later theory that it was ryan. I think it was that it might have been might have been laurie. I can't remember what it was. I have to go back and look at the end. There there were so many theories being thrown around that it was essentially. Every single character was under the lights including the turtle and clean and we wanted to begin. I mean we are so shocked and honored that you joined us again. Because frankly i have to confess something to. I was sure that we were never going to have this opportunity again. Because when you were kind enough to speak to us in april not knowing who we were a busy day promoting this new show unclear on what the reception would be your handler emerged to say thank you very much guys Keta change your. I've done it again. This is all flat. Doug chapman. you're there was. There was a lovely person. A public relations executive no doubt who emerged to say fellows. You're done and i interrupted her.

And i'm so sorry about that and thank you for forgiving us nearly by coming back down. It's absolutely fine. I'm i'm thrilled to able to come back. And you know. I have to be honest. It has been extraordinary. Keeping the secret about brian and going through price and not being able to say anything and i mean not just keeping a secret from press hoping to go. Someone didn't let something slip but also keeping it from family like my husband had read every episode but my two teenagers who all ready film savvy cool individuals.

Wow i'm on lake. So i take the wikipedia. It was sparse. I checked the wikki. It was sparser. Yup it was worse. Oh my god you weren't kidding.

The story was her husband. He and she fled to a women's shelter. And it's this kind of slow realization. That ralph has at like oh. Helen is no longer going to be looking for men. And especially because there's that other character from the women's shelter. I can't remember her name either but there is some tricky bits in there were just like. Oh yeah. she's a lesbian and she's clearly like the man heating guy like that of noxious but it's just close enough you're sitting. You're the the thing that's hard about. Stephen king is that he doesn't he doesn't pull punches from his characters. If his character would think or say something problematic. Stephen king does not stop them from doing so as a writer which is tricky. Because then you you run into wall. Are you encouraging this behavior. Because it's coming from the protagonists etc etc. I also does a character in the dark tower. That is we need to gush about a bad guy random. So yes we we will talk about my fave and yours callahan.

"Is a dividing tactic. So let's talk about queer history in relationship to stephen king. I do wanna like make sure that we keep bringing it back to king yes. Stephen king has been writing long enough that the culture around queasiness has shifted dramatically like really really significantly over time and you can see it shakeout in his writing. Yeah starting with kerry kerry is an interesting book to me. Because i think there's a really you could read kerry white as queer varies oi. You could one hundred percent. A generous reader kerry can take some of the body. You focus in the writing. That king has that people often read as horny grossman thinking about naked high scores which is unfortunately not a read out of the realm of possibility gauge in the state of things. Yeah but carries obsession with her body and lack of understanding of what it does and interest in other young women's bodies reads as really really queer to those of us who were not thinking of cleaners has an option when we grew up. So i remember starting sports in high school and thinking that i just had an academic interest in other men. Would i would tell my friends like man like. Did you see that guys. But and they'd be like. I wasn't looking at his but and i was like. Yeah me neither i wouldn't. That's not where. I was looking at all Man you tie that to the religious extremism that tortures her and her outsider status and already aah kerry we get fertile fertile ground for a queer. Read mcqueen queer interest in stephen king. Yeah it ain't smooth sailing though. It is not I'm going to be very honest. Even my cat has been door driving. You seen so i'm running. I've been listening i've been. I've been running around the laser pointer to get her to. That's and so. I haven't had the chance to percolate my own thought. That's fine i again. I'm coming at this from more of a gender identity angle. Sure i've mentioned this to you. Before is that. I read fire-starter when i was probably a little bit young to read fire starter. Get rid of when. I was like ten or eleven. The i wasn't even thinking about trying to shit yet. Like like i was who. I was in my tiny little child body and i think i mentioned this. It's really not like a significant chunk of the book but it's the part like stuck out to me because at that time. Are you definitely main. Queer thing i had seen. My young huge was kinky boots. Amazing referring to for we continue forward. Oh i'm so sorry. So there's a scene in firestarter with one of the characters again like my memory of the is actually quite sparse. I believe the detectives or police officer characters appreciate he dies he puts on his wife's clothes and then shoves his hand down a garbage. This oh that's right. Yes so there is a some sort of shadowy government authority figure who is psychically influenced to commit suicide by.

His chemistry teacher sets the contents of his locker on fire gets a pistol and returns to his algebra class or he kills the teacher and then a history teacher who comes to investigate holding the rest of the class degeorge decker reveals information about his troubled childhood and some of the other students begin to share their own secrets and feelings. That's quite the setup. sean. Yes so jay. This story rage was originally written at least started being written by king in one thousand nine hundred sixty six when he was a senior in high school and then he finished it in one thousand nine hundred seventy one and at that point it was titled getting it on Decker says that phrase multiple times throughout the section of the book king wanted to publish it like under his name right away but his publisher doubleday did want over saturate the market so this was the first case where they said all right. Well let's do it under a pseudonym and he submitted it as getting it on by guy pillsbury which is kings grandfather's name so that was going to be the original pseudonym he was going to use and there's a twitter user who just started following a couple of weeks ago named guy pillsbury so i thought that was a nice deep cut that is really deep. Cut yeah when he submitted his guy pillsbury. A number of people at the publishing house knew about king having a book called getting it odd and so the secret was already out. They pulled it and said okay and then he resubmitted as as richard bachman and submitted his with the new title rage and richard. Bachman i was because he had a richard stark book sitting on his desk and bachman turner overdrive was playing on the radio and so he was looking around. And there. you go richard bachman. Sorta like the Deficient the light bulb coming together to form the homer simpson logo number one. Lucky joe exactly so. This is actually his fourth published book. It came after kerry salem slot in the shining and just before the stand this was nineteen seventy seven it was published and then it was obviously republished in the bachman books in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. And if you're like my father you'll notice that this is not a book that is easy to come by nowadays. He was unable to find it when he was looking forward on. Different places and that is because after number of school shootings that had some tenuous ties to rage. There's at least one where the kid had a copy of the book his locker but some of the other ones may have referenced it or not king let the book go out of print in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight so all the other bachman books are now published as standalone novels. But this one is not in the forward to the bachmann book. Blaze king writes about rage. This is now out of print and a good thing. And if you go to the stephen king dot com website look up rage. No future printings will be made of this novel. At stevens request due to the sensitive nature of the content

Nice day were in this section of the book and one of the things we talked about last episode is how we were a little disappointed that there wasn't a lot more world building going on yeah King seemed to be very vague as to what sort of relived these characters were in boys going on. We got the sense that things weren't great but not all of the details and in this one. There's a lot more of that world building we're looking for. Yeah it definitely satisfied my craving for those details. I still don't know that it was enough for my my modern sensibilities if you will I wanted to know what was going on. Outside of the walk and king still doesn't really reveal that but he gives us just a little bit more of a taste. Oh those are so delicious. Yeah each one of them is pretty great. The fact there's now thirty first day of april. Yeah that was the first one in this section. I was like whoa and you know. We talked about the dark tower. There were times early on. We're like boy. That's a weird little editing mistake. At first i thought well maybe april thirty. One is an editing mistake but then there were a couple more came shortly thereafter. That you're like. Oh kings doing something here. Yeah yeah there were fifty one states. When i saw that my immediate question was what is that fifty for state. I mean it could be anything is is it. Puerto rico is his canada. I don't know like it could be so many things it could be half of. Mexico is the fifty first state. It's not really important to the story. But it would be kinda cool to have one of those jr token style maps or like the the dark tower style maps that shows the world of the long walk and the path that they walk. Yep and then you can see like now. There's this you know. East pennsylvania and west pennsylvania. Yeah you're not even thinking big enough jay. Maybe like the western eight states all disappeared or were destroyed and so then they picked up nine states that we don't have today and not not just one new one. What do you think of that. Yeah or maybe california finally broke into five pieces. Resold alaska back to the russians for for a net total of one game state. Yeah and cut off. Florida like bugs. Bunny does in that. Famous jif yup. Yeah there were other interesting facts. That that Apparently there were german air raids on the east coast of the united states. And there's clearly has been some kind of takeover. The major seems to be the figurehead leader or commander of this Of the united states. So i'm guessing some sort of military coup but somebody says in the old days before the change and the squads when they were still millionaires like basically went before before a lot of wealth was redistributed to who knows who knows in what way but clearly this is not the world that king lived through when he was writing this story. Right the most intriguing one was this idea that world war two was different in how it played out so there's talks about german raids on the east coast. That occurred that people were afraid of and then later on they talk about the provo governor who is a war hero. He led a raid on a german nuclear base in santiago in nineteen fifty three. So yeah this is definitely not the world that is just hey our world bit in the future. This is a total man in the high castle. Style alternate reality or maybe even a father callahan like slipping through alternate versions of of the universe or of the of the world making this whole story. Kind of dark tower finney.

Interview With Author David Yoon
"This week. I'm thrilled to have david yunan. Whose newest book super fake love song is out now. An conversation that we pretty much covered all talk about his newest book a his debut his writing journey and a lot about what he was like as a young person so really enjoyed talking to david. Hope you enjoy listening listening so david. What book hooked you. What book hooked me It's it was when i was in middle school. I don't know exactly how old i was. But i remember talking to my librarian and i was like i don't know to read their so many books in the school library and she just pulled out the halloween tree by ray bradbury and If you read this book but it's it has these awesome woodcut Drawings in it and it came up a long time ago. Like in the sixties. I want to say and this is way before like killington and the newspaper from the nightmare before christmas. But it's kind of there's a character in it. That is the skeleton dude with. I think he has a pumpkin for a head. I know he doesn't but he's like this very skeleton like figure and he's very creepy and he's very Theatrical like jack's kellington was and he challenges This group of boys on halloween when their trick or treating to to give up a year of their lives to save the life of their best friend Pippin who's at homesick can't trick or treat and so they travel around the world and learn about like all these Reports and customs that surrounding death and they wind up in mexico and they eat The sugar skulls and that is like. I'm going to give up a year my life to save my friend and It was just so it's like super atmospheric and super moody. This is awesome so then at of course read all very bradberry. I could find reading stuff. I shouldn't have been reading and so middle school time. Was that in age. Like were you a big reader. Then was it hard to get you to read or was it something where you pretty much constantly always had some sort of book. You're working your way through. I mean i was always reading. Yeah for sure Is reading a lot of stuff But then that book kind of it was like my first sorta grownup book. I guess and after that i started reading a of piers anthony fancy novels and i read like fifteen close and i was like wait a second. It's kind of the same story over and over again and that's florida and Then i started reading a lot of stephen king which i know i shouldn't have been reading And my dad was a weird guy to he. he He studied victorian like them. He he focused on the metaphysical poets. Okay it adds seoul university in career and then when it came to the united states he studied library science all things. wow and so he was like you need to be reading old man and the sea You need to be reading. Was it on human bondage and then lady chatterley's lover and was like that. I don't think i should be reading this. But he didn't care he's like the crazy. Daddy shows like the horror movies to his kids because he wants them to to Have a good sense of the canon. Anna is exposed to a lot of stuff that i probably shouldn't have been but i'm grateful for it and i would imagine while it was definitely helping Definitely helpful for your reading life to have a dad like that and that was kind of pushing it but was there any sort of rebellion there. That because you were being forced to read so many books were pushed upon you that reading. You rebelled against or turn against it because it was it was assigned by by dad I don't know it's hard to remember like like reading moby dick before high school. Sure looks like there's no way. I'm gonna finish so even if it did come from like a friend i don't know if i would have just cause but it did. It did feel like homework for sure At the same time like my older brother. I have one older brother. And he was a big reader to He used to read at the dinner table and it was like a problem. You know But i you know. I'm a little brother saw. I'll read to on just like him. I want to compete in everything we do. Because we're siblings. So he also turned me into the reader just sort of inadvertently and so when you got to high school especially when those are when in in those english courses you're being assigned full size novels and things like that. Didn't you find and really getting into what's canonized literature. We'll call it. Were you kind of a step ahead. That you think In those courses because dad already sorta had you on that home regiment of a reading those types of books. That's a funny question. Because i just realized really recently i mean my dad passed away like over a year ago. and so It just when you're when your parent passes away and makes you think a lot about your relationship in like your whole history. And i was like dude. My dad was like an outsized influence in in my interest in writing in books. I never appreciated him fully for that. He just kinda did it sure Yes and when. I hit high school. It was english. Classes where my absolute favorite My english teachers were my absolute favorite. My locker got broken into one time. So isis i was like no lockers and i used my english teacher's classroom as my locker That's how much we trusted. Each other's liked each other so that was sort of the year of You know camus. And ray bradbury. Shirley jackson and margaret atwood. That's like when i started really getting into those guys and and then i was like all right. This is this is really important to me. Plus i also had study hall. Not how i had studied hall but Journal i wrote in my journal pretty much every day so and so i take it
"stephen king" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"Absolutely wild. It's a fun dynamic. I kinda like it. I like it too and it also shows like the masculine relationships in this movie. Which are all very tenuous is reflected in the dark tower series all of role in shane's relationships with specifically masculine characters are super like might kill you at anytime. Am i keep you around. If you're useful to me okay now. We're best friends took off and let's be super union. People wonder why manners so fucked up honestly. Can you imagine your your ten. No way how when with stephen king born you're born nineteen forty seven so you're like twenty when you first see this movie how much it affects your masculinity or for someone who's younger than stephen king your ten in this movie comes out your twelve you go see it at the movie theater. We are taken away. We're breath taken by clint eastwood's performance and immediately one emulate him. We've said it five times right in this episode. That's nice to say that. I wanted to shoot people. That's the off brand. Stephen andrews tano statement possible. The power of this movie is really hard to overstate. And we can admit. Because it's twenty twenty that were just gay for him to emulate him. I time i would have sex with. I'd say eighty percent of the cast. That movie i have one hundred percent novick of the cast including the horse anyways. Everyone in this movie is super beautiful and people would pick up smoking because of clinics people bought stetson hats because of clint eastwood in this movie. It's so american to there's this weird kind of dual like war is hell thing but also looking at explosions is really rad. So that's kind of central tension. Yeah cool guys don't look at explosions came from this. Yeah yeah what's your favorite shot in this movie. Because i had one in particular that really blew me away. There's a couple that immediately come to mind. The very first sweeping shot of the men on horseback with the dunes like the first time that had ever been done right was is important. I think my favorite is probably the flash flash flash back and forth between the squinty eyes for like minutes just because you can only get in wide screen exactly those ratios of like sky face to sky being exactly the same on three flips. Which is you know. I think i love that sequence partly. Because i think it's a real magic trick to make a sequence that ten says it is 'cause really visually what you're experiencing is three men looking at each other for like five minutes but the music and all of the buildup and the understanding of what's at stake. Everything comes together in this perfect way to make something that is not in and of itself. Dramatic absurdly dramatic for me. My favorite shot is like whoa literally like two scenes. After that. I guess once in before that where to co is running through the graves searching for the right name and it becomes more and more frantic and almost psychedelic. You get this. Like crazy blur happening in the music is blaring. And it's just a man sprinting through graves looking for money. Which is i think as distinct metaphor as you can get for that character and how he operates that just like blew me away. Y- that was unbelievable. Yeah yeah for real very very good the final credits of this movie are. They're not hokey. But if you watch them without the rest of the movie it's like a fake blood splatter is on white paper kind of moving through after all that and he shoots out the the rope and the rope toco and blah blah blah. And then those credits come on. I cheer so that is great and the dark tower is good partially because it is inspired by that movie. One thing. we're going to do next time next week. Is we're going to bring you a fistful of dollars. Which is a much shorter much easier to follow. Movie within the same universe and supposedly occur is a couple of years before this one where we're getting the character building of blondie. I'm who'd never gets a name. He's the man with name and we're gonna see how that relates also to the tower universe because there are some specific scenes from that our universe from the book we are about to read that are taken directly from a fistful of dollars. This is a pretty loosey. Goosey saturday afternoon for us to spend talking about this movie you love. I also really enjoy this movie. I don't know if i can say. I love it. 'cause for me like god. The brown faces really hard to get past. It's like it's very bad. It's not central. It is there's no central. There's no characters with names that are in brown face. I was under the impression that took was supposed to be hispanic. No no he's just sunburn. I promise all right never mind to go. South american and word itself means ragu. It means pasta sauce and in that language problem browse bases around faces. Tough tough time for movies. The structure is so immaculate. It's so hard not to love this movie. Because again lake it's at the script and the cinematography and the acting like it's a compelling movie but every now and again you'll have a moment realistic. I know not good night from the was hard aside from the racist stuff that occur because this movie was in nineteen sixty six right brand facing black facing weren't words yet there are also things this movie's progressive about for example. One of the main characters is like y'all are committing sexual assault all the time like it's his glorified thing and also women are people and don't do that pay bang. You're dead. thank you for listening. We've got a crazy episode coming up for you next week. Not only because it's a crazy book but we've just got some whack stuff to talk about. We got meet. We have back on the menu boys. We have meet. Yes we've got meat arby's we've got meat. Do i have any other meat. Pop culture references. I can throw in here. I don't think so something. Something lady gaga meat dress. Maybe the dress. Yeah we're comedians. Hey thanks for listening to this podcast. And thanks to our patriot community for making this possible and thanks to you phoenix ours. We bible boy. Thanks you stephen micro kevin. We will be back with you next week..
"stephen king" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"Can account for it who cares but the belief encapsulates ideas about death the afterlife the nature of truth and knowledge etc which means that it might be the only cosmology prescient. The bible in king's work done yet amazing. What's great is that. I added fifteen seconds to the timer because of my brain blast in the middle there and you managed to perfectly fill those fifteen seconds so bravo sit good time. I can't do philosophy man. I can't do it. Edges it hurts. It hurts my brain was not designed to contain this much thought You know according to true or complete multi verse theory the infant multiversity somewhere. There's a stephen whose brain is built for this. Yes somewhere there's somewhere. Let me tell you that stevens. Not the one who started a stephen king. Podcast i actually did and date and didn't yeah i know somewhere. There's a dean koontz book club that includes negative phoenix negative. Stephen both of whom have like extravagant. Go tees and wear capes all the time. Yeah great great multi verse theory. Thanks love it great. What are you going to talk about steve. So what's funny is that. I didn't know that you were going to be talking about that. When i chose this topic but this is a kind of sister topic to that. I'm going to be talking about other world. Fantasy and other other world fantasy and the tower verse. Great timer is ready in three two one. There is a concept in fantasy called the other world. Chances are if you've read popular fantasy. You're already familiar with the idea. There is our world boring old earth. And then there's the other world narnia wonderland and odds are all good examples. It's not just the the other world is an undiscovered part of earth but that it plays by fundamentally different rules this can be as extreme as whole systems of magic existing or it can be as grounded as a different societal structure with more or less the same physical rules as earth on this podcast. Our first brush with other world. Fantasy was the talisman which has layers of worlds which exist as in a multi verse above and below hours. the other world and the talisman was the territory's a more simple clean and even pastoral land without modern technology but with magic and mythology. All its own see also black house which exists in the same universe but some years later now the dark tower books are also other world fantasy of a sort however their primary perspective is not our earth perspective. The primary perspective character in the dark tower is who has lived his entire life in the world here called mid world or all world in the first dark tower book the gunslinger all world may as well be the only world which exists there are some cultural echoes from our earth. Hey jude existing. As popular song comes to mind but on the on the whole. That book isn't really other world fantasy in that its primary. Interest isn't juxtaposing are familiar earth with a new place but rather fully exploring completely its own there are of course. Many successful fantasy works which do this. The lord of the rings. In the game of thrones series. Both jump to mind but at the end of the gunslinger roland is giving a psychedelic. Tore of the multi-diverse which reveals to him the reality of our earth. This paves the way for the drawing of three to do more work with earth vs all world. Here's where things get really interesting. The primary perspective doesn't fundamentally change for the drawing of three the world. The real world is all world that makes earth the other world which is strange and alien and knew this allows king to us a really fun writing tool called alienation in what you takes something familiar and describes it in a way which makes it unfamiliar or alien one. Brief charming example is roland. Speculating that the vehicle. Eddie describes as a van probably derives its name from the military vanguard. This tells us something about roland. And his world. He is to the bone. A soldier and his perspective is deeply military or take for example rowlands musing on the drugstore he expects a dark medieval apothecary dramatic location given the miracles of pharmaceutical science. He seen from earth when it turns out to be mostly a kitschy placed to buy snake oil cures. He's put off by it to him. A place which can provide wonders like antibiotics should be wonderful. These moments of cultural criticism are double edged. The give us more information about mid world satisfying that exploration itch. But also offer a way to make the mundane less so in way. King is flexing the same muscles as in his horror works. He's taking something usual and making it strange. The difference i think is that in horror king is taking something and warping it. What if a hotel was more like a drug. What if a pen name actually was another person here though king is finding that what seems mundane actually is strange. Our access to drugs is miraculous. Skyscrapers are on inspiring. And sometimes all that's needed to see that is a change in perspective time you've got four seconds left. Oh we are so good at this man. Not a day goes by that. We don't pat ourselves on the back for knowing how to time out for minutes. If i'm ever in a situation where. I'm at like public speaking later in my life like i know exactly. How long four minutes is yes for sure it'd be like can you prepare a four minute talk and you'll be like can i ever awesome. I thought that was highly interesting. it so it was the perfect kind of segue through my such accidental. Love wave perfect. And now do you have any other like other world fantasy that you really like I like a lot of neil diamond's work and there's one called stardust That i know recommended on the podcast before which is kind of a combination. It look. it doesn't take place on our earth but then there is another world fantasy aspect to it. Which i think is just like a lovely and fun vehicle for exploration. Yeah i don't read fantasy. I haven't read fantasy of this and like you know harry potter and lord of the rings. You know what i mean. so there isn't but i like this is my introduction because this is so convoluted fair enough. Let's take it to the fun part the really light and The the air is stuff. We're gonna take to off writing.
A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion
"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

If you write nothing you win and lose no point wage or answer is one of the approved answers on my here list. Then you get the points if your answer is wrong you lose five points no matter the round. Are we clear I've had this nightmare. This is oh my God keeping track of the points. This guy right here. Okay, good. I'm like, thank you. Don't ask me to also keep track of points in my mind's eye Phoenix is wearing like a circus ringmaster outfit. He's got like a spiral color hat and the bullwhip. Yeah, the the home the winner gets eternal glory probably a spot in heaven. And of course a grab bag of skbc gear. Let's get playing. In round one. We're going to start with an easy question. Some would call it a warm-up. What was Stephen King's first feature novel carry and both people get it. Correct. That is 10 points for Cam. That is 10 a points for Stevens. No good.

Time Travel Theoretically Possible Without Leading To Paradoxes, Researchers Say
"An undergraduate at the University of Queensland has apparently proven that time travel without paradoxes is possible. This is from a new paper published last week in the journal classical and quantum gravity by the student Germane to bar and his professor Fabio Kosta quoting popular mechanics. The math itself is complex, but it boils down to something fairly simple time travel discussion focuses on closed time like curves or CTC's something Albert Einstein I posited until Barton cost say that as long as. Just two pieces of an entire scenario within a C. T. C. or still in causal order when you leave the rest is subject to local free will I results show that C. T. C.'s are not only compatible with determinism and with the local free choice of operations but also with a rich and diverse range of scenarios in dynamical processes, their paper concludes end quote. In other words stepping on a butterfly during a dinosaur hunting expedition would not entirely change the present world returned to and the way Mardi MC fly prevented his parents from meeting or accidentally left behind a sports ALMANAC for biff defined would not drastically change his present reality either. Instead, the mathematical research shows that time travel would be more akin to vendors endgame something that matches the findings from Los, Alamos Laboratory earlier this summer. Side No. Los. Alamos is also one of the few labs messing around with plutonium. So All I'm saying is if you see a delorean cruising around New Mexico, maybe watch out. But essentially, the findings say that you can go back to the past and mess with things a little bit but it will basically smooth over and eventually lead to the same results preventing things like the grandfather paradox in which you go back in time, kill your own grandfather, and then prevent yourself the time traveller from ever existing. To Warren constant used relevant example from our present time to put their complex math into plain language quoting a press statement by the researchers say you traveled in time in an attempt to stop covid nineteen patient zero from being exposed to the virus? However, if you stopped that individual from becoming infected that would eliminate the motivation for you to go back and stop the pandemic in the first place this is a paradox been inconsistency that often leads people to think that time travel cannot occur in our universe. Logically, it's hard to accept because that would affect our freedom to make any arbitrary action. It would mean you can time travel. You cannot do anything that would cause a paradox to occur. In the coronavirus patient zero example, you might try and stop patient zero from becoming infected, but in doing so you would catch the virus and would become patient zero or someone else would no matter what you did. The salient events would just recalibrate around you try. As you might to create a paradox, the events will always adjust themselves to avoid any inconsistency end quotes. So our timelines are a bit more self-correcting than we thought and trying to adjust the time line. We're currently living in to go back to one where perhaps a different person won an election and the berinstain bears are still the Bernstein bears probably isn't going to happen. As NPR quoted from Stephen, King's time travel novel eleven twenty to sixty three about trying to prevent the Kennedy assassination quotes. The past is obdurate. It doesn't want to be changed.

"Trying out short stories always your first story when you I mean not so much the first one that you can. Write maintenance sixteen and Seventeen I was reading science fiction I. there's a there's a story called repent Harlequin said the tiktok man by Harlan Ellison and it was in one of those you know world's greatest science fiction's nineteen, sixty, six, nineteen, Sixty, seven is a collection. And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level? How much was that good for you to be on stage? I mean. Did that add

"Sure the cards won the NFL crown by ten and a half games, and they had Bob Gibson, but we had yeahs playing the crumbs off. The Green Monster Ken Harrelson Joe Foy was. Well destiny. And the Red Sox actually drove the heavily favoured cards to a seventh game before Lonborg took the mound in the final. He had been brilliant in his two previous starts winning five zero in three one, but he was pitched out. The game was really over by the end of the sixth inning. Fans who must sail forever in a doomed quest for the right to buy? Boston red sox world champions, t shirts have strange memories. For me, one of the strangest is of my wife, saying honey. Why are you just sitting there on an October afternoon nineteen, seventy eight, and you know what I couldn't tell her. I couldn't explain. For the Fenway Faithful nineteen seventy eight was the sweet dream season that turned into a nightmare a Stephen King baseball story. If ever, there was one, the red sox had played the first half of that season like the Yankees of twenty years later around all-star time in seventy eight, the socks record was an incredible, sixty, two and twenty eight. We were living large, just maximum end relaxing then came the crash best epitomized by the infamous Boston massacre when the Yankees came to town late in the season in swept a four game series, the nineteen seventy eight regular season, ended in a flat, footed tights, both the Yankees and Red Sox, sporting identical ninety nine win records, and associating only the Second One game playoff in American league history. I was teaching at the University of Maine at that time and cancelled my classes a thing I'd not done even when suffering a case of double bronchitis, so I could stay home and watch the game. After six innings, things looked good. We were leading the Yankees by a score of two and now Mike. Torres was tossing a two hitter and you strbske. He was doing his usual brilliant job in left field. My youngest son Owen than about twenty months old was crying some attention I took him on my lap, and he sat there comfortably for a while watching contentedly, and then dozing off, just as the white whale swim away from the red SOx nation yet again. The top of the seventh with two on and two out bucky dent hit a towering fly to left field a most days. That ball was an easy out even at fenway in other park in the major leagues. It was an easy out everyday. Not On that day, though it sorted the netting above the green monster, just above into the left of the scoreboard, then circled the bases with an unbelieving I can't believe this grin on his face. The Yankees held on to win. I always loved Fenway Shaughnessy. Quotes says saying, but that was the one moment I hated the place I still can't believe the ball went into the net. Later yeahs would foul out to end the game. I watch the post game show, who was like attending a funeral of someone who had died unexpectedly without hearing much of what was said I was thinking that it was going to be a very long very cold and very depressing winter in New England. At some point in these grim ruminations, I got up, turned off the TV and settled back into my chair with my young son still fast asleep in my arms. It was about them that my wife poked her head into the living room and asked why was just sitting there? I remember thinking own was the lucky one and one had slept through whole damn thing. But of course, that sort of ignorance doesn't last, the fathers and mothers of red SOx nation passed down there doomed love of America's unluckiest pro sports team to their sons and daughters at some unfortunate physical traits crossed is let us say or premature baldness are passed on from generation to generation. Eight years after sleeping through the final three innings of the red. SOx Yankees Playoff Game Owen attended his first postseason game. It was also his first night game. It was the red SOx against the mets and Boston had taken the first two games at Shea that led the series first game in Boston. A curious significance, no team taking a three, no lead in the fall classic had ever lost the world series. And so although it was a school night I felt okay about taking on to the Ballpark I felt like he was going to see something at the age of nine that I never had in my thirty nine years a red sox team that was all but guaranteed of winning the world series. Except the Red Sox lost game three, and in oddly boring fashion given the fact that Boston's eccentric pitching genius of the moment Dennis Oil can. Boyd was on the mound. The mets took the suspense out of early scoring four runs in the first, and going on to win by a score of seven to one on the way out of the Ballpark of long past, his bedtime, and terribly disappointed by the failure of his idol, the can man my son burst into tears I put my arm around him and hugged him, reflecting that they were his first tears as a red sox fan, and not likely to be his last. For the of red SOx nation, nineteen, eighty six was a Tripoli, cursed year a trebling cursed series it was one in which our vision of the white whale rolled out and all, but begged for the harpoons. It lay their offering itself up in particular to come and Red Sox seaman named William Billy Bucks Buckner. It was game. Six of the Red Sox mets world series. The socks were leading three games to. And that night's contest they were also leading five three in the bottom of the tenth inning at Shea. The first two mets batters went down easily at one point. The Red Sox were within a single strike of ending their long sixty eight years at that point eighty one. Is Your reading this world series drought. I was sitting behind. The wheel of my car was parked in the driveway of our summer home in western Maine during that terrible half of the home tenth waiting for the Red Sox to wrap it up. The only radio in the house had no antenna. I would not pick up the closest red sox affiliate. The car radio would. It was late after midnight, and I wanted to go to bed, even more I wanted to grab the bottle of champagne that was chilling in the fridge and pour myself a big cold glass of it. I wanted to toast my Red Sox, who had finally done it after all those years trial and heartbreak, all the dream players who turned out to be bad dreams, and all turns of Evil Fortune, the Red Sox had finally done it. And that was when the roof fell in. What followed were three consecutive singles in one wild pitch an all at once. The game was tied. I sat there in my Ford, the door open in the Dome Light Spilling, a thin yellow glow out onto the gravel. The -squitoes flying around my ears, and a cigarette, smoldering between my fingers, waiting for the Red Sox, at least choke the mets off and get another turn at back. Then mookie Wilson hit his infamous ground ball up up the first base line and right at Buckner. As soon as he hit it a routine grounder I had an evil premonition that I would not be drinking champagne that night. When the announcer, probably it was Ken Coleman, but I can't remember for sure screamed and it gets passed a buckner. It's through his legs I was somehow not surprised, instead of going back into bat in the top of the eleventh of the game tied the Red Sox went back to their hotel with the series tied the following night. The mets put them away. The. Red Sox have let the great white whale getaway yet again that whale has never come so close to our boat cents before beating the Indians in the opening game of their playoff series in the fall of nineteen, ninety eight, the Red Sox had lost thirteen straight games and postseason competition, beginning with game six against the mets and including two four game sweeps.

"This week, I'll be reading an essay written by Stephen King for the official program of the Nineteen Ninety Nine Major League Baseball All Star game. The title of this piece is fenway and the Great. White Wail. I've got a theory about Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick that you'll never come across in college lit text. I believe that Captain Ahab. The crazed neulander in charge of the P. Quad was doomed to spend his life chasing the white whale, because the red sox hadn't been invented yet. If they had been a hab could have issued the four deck and opted for the bleachers, instead peering through set of secondhand. Benach rather than spyglass and looking has red sox fans have looked all my life for a world series flag rippling proudly in the breeze. Melville's Captain Ahab only one leg Moby Dick bit off the other in an earlier encounter, the fenway faithful often feel like chewing off their own legs, or at least a few fingers in frustration. I know since the late fifties and early sixties, when such eccentric says pump see green played for the red sox. I have been one of them. We are with. The Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy calls red. SOx nation to send into the self-named royal rooters who cheered the socks in the first decade of the twentieth century. According to baseball historian, Frederick Leib, the head Royal Ruder was a saloon keeper who went by the name I love. This of nuff said. Mr Said and his followers usually showed up for game, six or eight sheets to the wind and fenway's come crop of bleacher creatures will testify is tradition continues to be upheld. Son Left fielders bullpen denizens loved the bleacher creatures. Hate them all have been showered impartially with beer insults in a rain of beach balls. Beer isn't sold in the stands at fenway, and this is probably wise. The idea of thirty thousand Captain Ahab in one place is scary enough. The idea of thirty thousand loaded captain Ahab in one place all bending their elbows as another game and other series, another white whale of a season goes slipping away. That's sort of horrifying, isn't it? Fans from other parts of the country, those who have read about the Red Sox Zeitgeist, but never actually experienced it. Let alone. Ben Steeped in it as some new. Englanders happened since Warren. G harding was president to understand. What a hellish job rooting for the Red Sox can be. In some ways it really is like setting sale, the P. Quad, but for the Shanghaied crew of the good ship Red Sox. The voyage never seems to end. We are blessed with a welter of gruesome memories from Jimmy. Fear strikes out Pearsall's nervous breakdown to the dreadful meaning of Tony Cornelia to the dismantling of closer Calvin Schiraldi. We believed the nineteen sixty seven..

This will not be our usual program if you can keep listening poise. This is not typically overtly political podcast. We have been very open about our own political leanings, because literature and how anyone interact with literature is personal and powerful. Stories are all we have some days. For us in for millions of readers, the stories of Stephen King have been of great comfort. But some days comfort is not appropriate. If you're joining us in real time when this gets published in June of twenty twenty, it will be in the midst of global protests against police brutality. We are scared. We are all so sad and angry. So many have died and so many have been hurt and so many more will be hurt if things are allowed to continue this way. A deep violent vein of racism has been allowed to fester in our nation in our government in our culture and in our police force. In DC president trump called for the domination of protests, person Oy I have been hearing helicopters passed by this apartment for days. Every time a siren passes I'm afraid. Someone new has died. I'm afraid that one of my friends or family will become a Hashtag. In general, I am afraid. Typically when we talk about fear on this program, we talk about the throw of adrenaline the chill of the spine we talk about ghosts and monsters and viruses and abusers. We talk about trauma and the ways that the horror genre can help us cope with trauma. We talk about not shying away from the things that scare us. We might make light of dark themes because it's fun and. Maybe because it gives us a sense of control. We cannot in good conscience do that today. Today are fierce different. But we cannot ignore fear, and we cannot ignore what it requires of us. Here is what we will be doing.

"So some. Call him the Space Cowboy. Some call him the gangster of love. I've I've called him. Maurice once or twice. Eric's all right. We completed the joke. Good work good game the other night. I definitely put the beginnings of the music right. Okay Okay Okay. Okay for your back So in Gerald's game there's a serial killer. He is a prolific necrophile with ACURA. Mega -Ly are serial code. Today is neither of those things. But it's interesting but Stephen King took a name from a real life Maine based serial killer. Yeah and lent it to his book or maybe it was a subconscious or I think he was caught in nineteen ninety six so it might be funny. Stephen King might have actually named a serial killers you bear and then we'll let me see when he was caught all right. Do the math. He was caught right before Stephen King started writing. Gerald's game okay. So maybe subconscious maybe conscious as kind of a nod. Yeah absolutely and interestingly enough he was well we'll get to that all right. Let's go chronologically. So let's talk about. Show bear the fictional character. And then we'll talk about it. Show bear the serial killer. So why don't you explain to the audience? A little bit of the details about the fictional character shirt so this is based off of the book. Gerald's game primarily. I have not read bag of bones. My understanding is that Berisha's feature prominently in that one as well but as far as we hear in Gerald's Game Jober is a serial killer slash NECROPHILIAC. Who Lives in state of Maine? He has acro- Meglena. Is that how it's pronounced ACRO- Akra Mugabe? Which is not related to him being serial killer but it does. It's like a striking aspect of his appearance and he goes around murdering folks and he steals their bones and puts them in like a briefcase thing. A bag of sorts and at one point he shows up where so? If you haven't read Gerald's game the main character gets tied to a bad and has to survive the whole book. It's it's hard core go read. It's one of my favorites. But he shows up and is just generally ominous spooky so he does home invasions he. I think he liked pickled his mom or something like that. Sure did he sure did yes. Oh definitely sexually desecrated most of the bodies. Yeah Yeah looting taking genitals for His So that that sort of sexual depravity comes in here with Jubeir the the man John J Jubeir when he was a kid John. Jay Baer was a kid I sit just me or do. Serial killers always have really dramatic. Names it they often. There's something kind of weighty the top serial killers that most like true crime as can name are like Richard Chase. Ed Geene John Wayne. Casey Richard took Attilo. There's just something batum spooky absolutely like. What if they had been named like Edgar Edgar Zubeir would have been serial killer? Richard Ramirez right so Jubeir when he was thirteen found out that if he stabs little girls with pencils or at one point slices them with Razor Blades. He becomes sexually stimulated unfortunate. It's unfortunate and it's not great. The mixing the crossing of the sex wires and the of violence wires in the brain is pretty much the main cause for Serial killing in an in any many people. That's pretty much where it begins. There are are very few serial killers with no sexual motivations. Now let's talk about the three crimes. There's three that we know of right. Probably just three so in Portland Maine is your bears live in there. It's nineteen eighty two and there's an eleven year old name. Ricky Stetson who went for a jog roof. His body was found on the side of I ninety five by motorists my two hundred dollars like the main road down there in Portland. I the main highway yeah. Someone had attempted to undress him and failed and stabbed and strangled ricky. Interestingly enough in each one of these cases they arrest a suspect. The suspect is always the wrong person which is not super rare. I mean usually they wait till they know The bite mark did match the bite mark on sets his body like from the cast carat for those of you. That don't consume a lot of crime. Media Bite marks are like fingerprints and a lot of ways. They're fairly consistently individual. So that's a way that people will get caught. Which is crazy buck wild? Yeah and they were doing that before they knew about DNA. It's a very early. A primitive form of matching people. So now it's a year later and were in Nebraska which is one of the reasons that these crimes did not get connected right. Danny Joe Abberley is a newspaper boy. I'm not even kidding. He is delivering newspapers and a man coaxes him into his car and they find his body a couple of days later about like four miles away. It was the same thing a probably sexually motivated knife attack. So did they eventually get a confession editor bear? Is that how we know these things? Yup and we'll get to how crazy his confession was and how it kind of shows manipulation in the system. Sure so now. At this point that was a kidnapping and we might not know this but all kidnappings go straight to the FBI right if you can prove. It was a kidnapping a secondary location murder straight. That guy the guy gets called in who happens to be the head of the FBI out profiling team at the time Robert K ressler like the profiler and this comes across his desk and he's like I'm GonNa Profile Shit out of this guy for just is one murder that had talked to the one in Maine. No the man personally but somehow seems out of character. I don't think rolling into his office. Roman his hands together like ooh baby is profile and time viscaya profile. Richard Chase Ted Bundy and Geoffrey. Dahmer Damn this guy is the. He's the profile. He wrote a note. Profiler Robert K Ressler. Honestly if you get a chance to read his books do it. The point is while he's putting together this profile. The police are basically arresting every child molester in both states a couple months later in Peillon Nebraska just a couple miles from wear emily's body was found. Christopher Walden disappeared also got into a car. This was a little bit more of violent crime. There's no reason to describe it. We're not true crime podcast. But right it was more more mutilation ripe will and now Robert K. wrestlers like no no no. We're not arresting anybody who doesn't perfectly perfectly fit my shit so they arrested guy who does not fit his profile and this guy isn't looking good. He has a false alibi. He fails a polygraph test and wrestler. Says send him home. He doesn't fit my profile. Dang he was so sure and he was right. This would be a much different story. If he was like ten percent. Worse this job. Yeah right so basically. There's a guy in a car just loitering Jubeir Just like hanging around a neighborhood. In a preschool. Teacher calls the police. Because she's a nosy. Nora when they saw car they're like a Tan Nova Sedan Russo fast in a series of events. A search warrant is issued. Rope is found that fits the Danny Abberley murder at this dude dorm room by the way. 'cause he's in his twenty one years old. Jubeir the time. Yeah who which makes him one of the youngest operating Kat. Serial killers right. He gets diagnosed by the psychiatric people with everything that you can get diagnosed with. He gets life in prison in Maine but here comes the interesting part to avoid the death penalty in Nebraska. He spills his beans and they're like death penalty anyway. Because there's no rules about that right and just promise not give them to them. Yeah so he files a rid of Habeas Corpus. He says that he was given the death penalty for quote unquote exceptional depravity which is not against the law The court agreed and they appealed and the appeal was overturned by the United States District Court District Nebraska to courts up right because of the torturing the he had made to. They're like this is not looking good for you. Bud like so on July Seventeenth nineteen ninety six. He is executed by Electric Chair Nebraska now while he was leading up to him being electrocuted Nebraska had to look at. Is this cruel and unusual punishment. Like right I think it's interesting that a couple months before green mile is published. Stephen King is watching the news about an electric chair case for killer. He followed ten years ago interesting anyways. That is interesting. It is revealed when they take off his. I don't know hat the thing they strapped down to your head to electrocute you to death with right the cap of whatever we just did Green Mile. Okay that he got a lot of brain blisters and decides of his head were very very damaged. His ears were very very damaged provided night. I didn't know the brain blisters was a phrase that existed in the world. It sure does. My life is demonstrably worse off for it. They repealed the death penalty in Nebraska. Oh Shit not over this but over this in conjunction with a few other thing. Yeah Yeah Years Later. They they repealed the death penalty. So that's John Bear. Which in this really roundabout way relating to Gerald's game. Maybe like yeah yeah I mean. In Gerald's game the character does not get the death penalty and they make a point of saying it right because Dan have the penalty. But I put that in there. You know total super interesting. So that's one of two people that we're going to talk about today. The other one is a little more high profile. Phoenix are GonNa be telling me about Ted Bundy so everybody. Who's into true? Crime knows Ted Bundy. Yeah and knows the whole story and knows the different stories and knows what he said. Everyone said watched the documentary on Netflix. So I don't WanNa like beat a dead horse right but I do want to point out some of the similarities to some Ted Bundy's shit to to desperation. Right now are desperation. Character is not an incredibly intelligent sociopathic villain mastermind. He takes a few of the boxes. He's really doesn't seem on intelligent. He's kind of Wiley. Mikey plants evidence and he takes advantage of people's trust and authority. And that's exactly it. It's the taking advantage of trust and authority that we see from Ted Bundy all the time. Now Ted Bundy a lot of people don't realize because true crime makes it seemed like he was this master of evil master evil but he was also a bumbling fuck up and he he messed up a lot of stuff up to and including his police ruse so he had many many many ruses that he used. I need help fixing my buggy. I lost my dog so many I have a broken arm. Hell yeah and that's how he was lure young women into his car who he would then sexually assault and murder many many many dozens of times. He had one ruse where he would dress up. Like a COP now. He was still driving a yellow buggy. Some of these times cut dammit and other times not and he would have handcuffs in the hands of course came into play with the the sadism kind of thing in I think three of these particular cases there were like actual murders that I don't WanNa say worked out though. He convinced people into his car. Just like Kali intriguing does by saying something. Dangerous is going on out there. I need to help you right. Yeah and then wing people. He didn't know what was that tone of voice dear. We're not on a spooky mansion on a hill. We're not Azerbaijan. This is not where we're at now just to recap the rest of Ted Bundy's career for you Stephen. Yeah because I'm again a lay man. He killed who knows how many people I think nothing numbers dumb game. But let's say more than three dozen people. She says up to including some girlfriends. He was beloved. Local Republican people in his college trusted him. That's crazy man as he started to lose his mind. He's tired to lose his friends and when he was caught rather unceremoniously they. You know they they got. They arrested him out of pulled him out of his car. One day he went to jail. Escaped Jail Chit by digging a tiny hole with a spoon in Earth. Somehow I forget how he did it in the concrete and like losing a bunch of weight. That's crazy yeah. There was a massive manhunt. He goes on trial he almost jail again by the way goes on. Trial represents himself and is so charming. The judge himself says. I don't WanNa put you in jail. What the fuck does a great job representing himself but doesn't present a very good defense also by the way a bunch of women start sexualizing him. One of them shows up to the trial he puts her on the stand and uses a backwards law about certain words. The judge can say to legally marry this woman wild. He is putting the questions to are on the stand. They get married in court. You can't see my face but my gye is like on the ground. I do not understand how any of these words are real things that you're saying to me right now. It he his damn mind and the police kept pulling him over during the time that he was gonna get caught and finding like bloody hammers and the nats nothing wrong. He's like Oh that that's nothing to worry about that. Sopher.

What if they read ahead and learned that the murderer murderer turns out spoilers? I'm just teasing. That book doesn't doesn't even have an ending. It's the only murder Agatha could never solve but a learning secrets can be harmful like one time. I was waiting in line at midnight for the release of the Sixth Harry Potter Book. And some jerk drove by shouted Sniping Dumbledore Bowl Oh featured prominently in the new novel really. I've never read the six book.

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?
"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

A chance encounter on the street inspires him to write a new peace and the book ends as he breaks down. Crying is a good one though use. Oh but is a good one that that is one way with this meeting in order. It's full dark no structure so i. Hey I know you're into go but this here is a good Christian podcast and we're going to have some some ground rules moving forward all right now. Here's how this is going to go. We're not going to swear on this here episode. I don't WanNa hear any F words or extreme stream darns in my vicinity so if a happens for this episode only I'm GonNa edit them out now and we're going to replace them with a more appropriate word such as Kakudi for example Phoenix. Would you like to demonstrate share. Gosh darned take that again but you use it in a sentence. I hate this effing. So there's a second part of the royal which Phoenix is going to really enjoy. which is that anytime I catch use wearing or vice versa? I need to inform you that you're a thirty dirty. Birdy and I will not have that kind of language on my podcast. Oh okay are we all saddled all right have a good one now. What was your thing? What were you going to say but well Jesus I was GONNA say you're on thin ice for using his name in vain? I will just Sir so every list of best Stephen King books gotta include misery. Yeah 'cause it's great. It's a metaphor metaphor for Stephen King. Getting terrible audience reactions from eyes of the dragon feeling tied to horror in the way that Paul Sheldon is tied to misery. Yeah Yeah anti-drug Birlik Romance which it's interesting. I really like the kind of shift. Because they're both genres. That are really looked down upon. So it's like a fun way of being like. Hey Hey this. Isn't me wink wink wink. Absolutely this is a random note to. I went back through some of my books. Some of the things we've done I don't know if he's ever written a book Stephen King Out and allison wonder who else who else would you be referring to. Why did you have have to clarify? Our is not the Nora Roberts. Now we're not doing the Dean Koontz Boo Club. You're fasting.
