There haven't been any consequences so far because as you talked about central banks have really gone in just underpinned all that dead in encourage people to move out on the risk scale but as we hit this three hundred trillion dollar milestone. Is that anything to worry about anything to think about. What are your thoughts about that. While there's no number that that that rings a bell and in fact because global growth has recovered the jets. The debt to gdp ratio actually came in touch by it. It matters when it does and it's always trying to figure out when that matters and as ever grand has has experienced it matters when the ponzi seems ponzi. Scheme sort of exposes itself because they lose access to funding and just as as leeman relied a lot a lot on short term funding us. Oh evergreen may i think of the technically ninety billion ish of debt about half matures within a year and they relied on wealth management products to to bring in short-term funding and deposits from from buyers which you know is essentially short term funding and if you continuously rely on short term funding to really finance longer-lived businesses that construction is as an example than eventually that's gonna burst because they'll be something that that.

Oftentimes he has a kind of a borderline with some of the strength based yoga positions. That people will be will be familiar with as well. There's kind of an overlap. There brace all the way down. So i mean a lot of my training. These days were focused around what we would call fundamental skills of just using bodyweight on pushing and pulling patterns without beyond balls or rings typically close kency chain kind of movement said one fix on the floor or in the on a ball and and yeah as feroza big paul of it was around play and that was one thing that we found when we go into it it was just gave us the freedom we being strengthened condition for while i was going into the gym which like jacko and being on a squad for the next four weeks lead to five rep zoysia.

We Need More Honest Teaching of America's Painful History
"Bryan stevenson. Thank you very much for being on the podcasts. For having us down here in your offices at the equal justice initiative here in montgomery alabama. Thank you. It's great to be with you so before we get to the reason why we're actually down here. I want you to define a term that you see when you go to the legacy museum when you go to the national memorial for peace and justice and that is racial terror. Lynchings have that right. Yes that's right so what we're talking about our lynchings. That were designed to terrorize people. Based on their race. I think popular culture. We have a notion that lynchings were what happened when someone was hanged. And of course lots of lynching victims weren't actually hanged. They were drowned. They were beaten to death. They were shot. they were burned alive. And so when we talk about lynchings we're talking about a category of crime. Committed by groups of people and racial terror. lynchings Are murders crimes committed by groups of people of african americans to terrorize the african american community. there was mob violence. There was frontier justice in many parts of this country where there was no functioning criminal justice system. If someone did something violent or broke the law group might come together to exercise punishment against that person and that respect you would see white people hanged. Ut other kinds of people hang but they weren't trying to terrorize the community. It was typically for a well known violent crime around which there was some group consciousness that someone had to be punished. Black people were typically lynched in communities where there was a functioning criminal justice system. There was no need for frontier justice and in fact hundreds were pulled out of jails and courthouses to be lynched and these lynchings were violence directed. Not just at that individual. But at the entire african american community

Is you highlighted the things that it's just easy to overlook and the power of food truly is being medicine not liked medicine but medicine for real right sometimes even better and i want to start off by this study that you mentioned inside of each smarter and it was around alzheimer's and a particular nutrient tell us what that new chain is and how this nutrient was shown to have a significant reversal on our age. Yes so the current size. When we're looking at alzheimer's you know is a really really difficult situation. There's not much as for as peer reviewed evidence on being able to reverse his condition as see much. Improvement is a lot of times. It's trying to slow down the progression but now there's so much evidence coming out in so many wonderful scientists are asking these questions. What can we do. let's try. This thing was try that thing. And the funny thing is is circling back to the world of nutrition. But of course makes sense because your brain is literally made from food and we know today. That alzheimer's is largely tied to this calling. Type three diabetes.

"Our goal going into this was to understand a bit more about the racial wealth. Gap it's been fifty years since the end of segregation and jim crow why hasn't economic inequality between black and white americans budged at all. It brought us back to slavery in everything that grew out of that system. And the truth is that as a country. The united states has never really reckoned with slavery or any of the racist violence and oppression that followed. We have created a narrative of denial. We've created a narrative that says we're not going to talk about the mistakes we make. I think it's because we become such a punitive society. We think we own up to our mistakes. Something bad is going to happen to us. We're going to get punished. And i'm not doing these projects because i want punish america.

"I always have guessed introduce themselves. Could you introduce yourself sure. My name is mel citizen. I am the sherve under. She ran the prince's power. I made a book called pneumonia. I meet another book called lumber jeans. And i am doing various other things right now that i am excited to one day be able to tell everyone about amazing and pronouns. Wise all is what i think is true. Is that true. Yes i just. I will respond to anything <hes>. He she it's all good for me <hes>. But like yeah whatever whatever feels right to you. I honestly don't mind preference. Do you have a preference. I prefer more than they <hes>. But <hes>. Yeah i don't know this is this is a this is a weird question for me. I'm very new to like <hes>. My gender journey. This is very new as of this year. So i don't have the best answer. But yet he and she are are preferred. I don't know that <hes>. Full first of all. Thank you for answering that. And i know for me that like this is actually. This is also a tough question for me. Because i don't have a specific need and because i don't have a specific need then i feel like saying any one thing is actually kind of limiting where i'm like instructing on something that you know i know some people really do have a strong need love. It love creating space for that. And then i think for me because this has been so this becomes a common question in our community especially on like on a panel or something and they have this haircut. I think there's a lot of assumption and anyway. It's not that i don't want to be asked. I simply feel that. I don't know what to say. I feel exactly the same. And it's something that is so it's like. I suspect that there is like a system of how i want to be referred to but i do like like you said i don't i almost feel like by talking about it at all. I'm like. I'm like drawing attention to the wrong thing it's like for me. Pronouns are sort of like they're part of how i interacted in the world like. I'm actually very bad about 'gendering myself. Because i don't use pronouns for myself just you know i but like it's more about how people refer to me and so when i'm over here doing my own you know gender thing and then someone's like what are you and i'm like i don't know i'm just like i don't wanna like kinda like get really into it and talk about. I just don't know. Yet i just don't like you said i don't have a huge need for how i want to be referred to. It makes you feel good when people care when people put the effort into lake. You know referring to me. In a way that i want to be referred to. But it's like it's a. It's a hard question it's just. It's so much bigger question than it. Seems like i think at first some just still figuring out. Yeah i hear you. Well and also again i would say that the complicated thing about this question and like so many things in life is that it's i think for some people less complicated than others and so and that's true for so many things right like there's there are so many things that people are sure about that. Other people are less. Sure about. And so i think for me. It's like i would never want to take away anybody else's opportunity to be sure about themselves <hes>. But you know i. I think that this is actually part of the core experience. Even pre opponent discussion right. It's like a closed. you wanna wear. How do you wanna wear your hair like. There's a lot of different things about the queer experience that i think you know. Some people like have a real sort of idea of what they're doing and and how they want to be seen in how they want to be understood in them. I think i think some of us don't and i think it's all of that is really great. Actually i think that's human experience rate could it. This is true also for like what do you want to do with your life. Do you believe in. God like all of the questions that are like the big human questions i think it's a sliding scale of understanding. Yeah i think this might be just like sort of anecdotal. But i feel like i've noticed. I've seen a rise in people who are pronounced flexible this past year. Especially and i think there's a lot of that is like you know we're all kind of i think everybody is sort of going through. It might not be gender for everybody. But everybody's kind of going through like we're all stuck at home. We only are interacting with each other over zoom and over the internet and like who. Who am i right now. I'm not having all input from other people in my life from acquaintances people on the street. It's just like you know like like how who exactly in line. How do i want to be perceived how to present myself in this in this space where we're kind of isolated and so i feel like i for me pronouns. It's like they aren't some deep personal thing. There's not like a true part of my soul that is like oh yes. That's how i want to be referred to and for some people it they really do. Have that but for me pronounced more of a tool. So it's like it's when you're going through life like i enjoy being called here because there's a friction there. I don't particularly look or sound like he. And so when someone calls me he that gives me like a little like a thrill because it feels like that tool that pronoun tool is someone who's like paying attention to me in listening to me. I have expressed that. There's a masculine part of me that i enjoy. And they're paying attention to that. And so that makes me happy.

"Museum just. I'm curious if hugh reflect at this remove on on that evolution. What's that ben about at heart. It's essentially terrific question because you're absolutely right. This is definitely been a journey of discovery. Had we succeeded with just providing legal services to people in achieving the things that we thought needed to be achieved. We wouldn't have kept looking but of course that wasn't sufficient until you keep digging and I would not have imagined that today. You know we. I'd be kind of working on a museum a memorial these reports but it really was about a decade ago. I guess or maybe twelve years ago. That i began to question whether the law was enough and it was largely triggered by this awakening. That even though i'm a product and brown versus board of education about twelve years ago. I i realized. I don't think we could win. Brown versus board of education to. I don't think our court would do anything that disruptive on behalf of disfavored people on behalf of marginalized people and that terrified me but it also energize me to recognize it. We were going to have to get outside the court and create a different consciousness. The question is why wouldn't we win. And it's because we haven't really reckoned with these larger issues of what it means to be a country dealing with our history of racial inequality. And what you. I think that language you used about Even you because you are. A product is culture as well when you thought about people in prison. You didn't think about their humanity. Thought about what they've done and even how we use. I mean you speak a lot about the narrative right like even how we use the language of. It's not somebody who stole something. It's a fee right. it's a murderer and also He has somewhere you said you. Slavery doesn't end it evolves. In the end you go back to lynching and there's fist presumptive criminality. Just by virtue of being black that then turns up in who is in our presents and who on death row at what you uncover. Is this callousness. It extreme callousness and coarseness and dehumanisation. That is so dot with you. Know who we want to think of ourselves and want to be. I believe As a country. Yeah yeah and i think a lot of it has to do with how we're governed. How're acculturated i think in the nineteen seventies part of what happened is that our political leaders began relying on the politics of fear and anger as a way of shaping policy and so we declare this misguided war on drugs. We say that people who are drug-dependent and drug addicted are criminals. And we're gonna use a criminal justice system to respond to that problem now. We could have said should have said that people suffering from addiction independently have a health problem and we need a healthcare response. But that's not going to generate the kind of energy that demonizing people for addiction will. That's how we got to the point where we were putting people in prison forever life without parole for writing a bad check. I presented people are serving life without parole for simple possession of marijuana taking away the minimum age or trying children as adults when you step back and you think about it. It makes no sense and they're thirteen states today. That have no minimum age. We're trying a child as an adult and you can't really rationalized that unless you are distracted by these narratives of fear and anger. And i think that is part of the condition. That gives rise to the brutality in the cruelty that i've seen in my work and of course when you are governed by fear and anger when you're shaped by you tolerate things you would never otherwise tolerate you accept things you would never otherwise accept and i think for me getting at that pushing people to step back from fear anger. Getting people to think more critically about this. Larger legacy of racial inequality is the priority now. And that's what led me into the racial justice. Work that we've been doing and this effort at trying to pull apart american history in a new way in a different way than the way in which we have tended to hear right as something we have to reckon with. Must reckon with on our way to reckoning with all of that all of these these what infect our consequences and so the reckoning that has to happen in this country has to be rooted in a moral awareness a moral awakening consciousness that evolves in a way that we begin to do the things that we must do if we're going to not only save the country but save ourselves and this is where for me faith traditions. Become so important. Yeah because in the faith tradition. I grew up in. You can't come into church. And say oh i want salvation and redemption and all the good stuff but i don't wanna admit to anything bad. I don't want to have to talk about anything bad. That i've done preachers will tell you. It doesn't work like that. You got the i repent and you've got to confess and they try to make you understand that that repentance and confession isn't something you should fear but something you should embrace because what it does is open up the possibility of redemption and salvation. And we kind of have a very religious society where we talk about these concepts on sundays. On yeah i haven't we haven't embracing we have employed them in our collective lives and i think that has to change I'm krista tippett and this is on being today with lawyer bryan stevenson.

"You went to Alabama. To establish a center, a Death Penalty Defense Yeah center that evolved into the equal justice. Initiative, but you tell a story about the first execution. Witness I. Mean You know I was in Alabama, because Alabama didn't instill doesn't have a public defender system. There's no statewide public defender system. There were no resources allocated for people on death row. there are a lot of people getting execution dates, and so We open up this office with the hope that we could recruit some people to help us meet the needs of the legal, poor and. As soon as I got there, call from a man who was scheduled to be executed in thirty days, and he begged me to take his case, and I said look I'm sorry. I can't take cases yet. We don't have books. We don't have staff. We don't have computers and I. Never will forget him just. Stay on the line, and not saying a word, and then he hung up. And I was so unnerved by that that I didn't sleep much the next day he called me back. He said Mr Stevenson Annoy. You don't have your books in your computers, I. You don't have tell you can stop the execution. You don't have to tell me you can keep them from executing me. He's a please. Tell me you'll represent me so i. don't think I can make it these next twenty nine days. There's no hope at all. And when you put it like that, it became impossible to say no so I, said yes. We worked really hard. But couldn't stop that execution, and it became a defining moment for me because being with him on the night of the execution when he told me about how all day long people were saying. What can we do to help? You can get stamps to mail. Your letters can get you the phone. Do you want water? Do you want coffee and him? Finally? Saying Brian it's been so strange. More people have asked me what they can do to help me in the last fourteen hours of my life than they ever did in the first nineteen years of my life. It became really clear to me that we were not. We were failing people in some pretty profound ways, and I didn't want US continue failing, and that was kind of really important, because you can't do the kind of work that I do representing people were condemn without being prepared for some setbacks and some heartbreak. The central story in your book is about a case involving a man named Walter mcmillen. who was? Convicted and sentenced to death in. In a shocking way, yeah! overtly. Unjust. talk talk a little bit about that well, it was you know in some ways. I focused on that case because it's sort of a microcosm of all wrong. With our criminal justice system, including our collective indifference. Because water, McMillan was actually accused of a crime that took place in Monroeville Alabama. And MONROEVILLE. Alabama is of course where the famous Knob Hill Mockingbird Harper. Lee grew up, and that's where she said her novel to kill a Mockingbird and that community. has this just romantic relationship to that story? They've renamed streets after characters in the book. They closed the old courthouse. In Gregory Peck came to mobile to shoot one of the scenes for the movie. They've turned it into a museum. It is the thing about which the community is proudest of. And yet there was complete. Hostility to the idea of providing a fair trial to this black man accused of killing a young white woman. And, it was one of these outrageous cases where the crime takes place in downtown Monrovia. The police can't solve the crime months go by. and there's a lot of pressure on law enforcement which we frequently see. And, so they arrest Walter mcmillen, I think most of the new then that he wasn't guilty, and there were witnesses who had him in a completely different play. That's the really painful part on the day of the crime. He was actually with his family, raising money for his church. There were dozens of black people who were with him eleven miles from the crime scene and so. So when he was arrested, they all went to the sheriff. In the Popkin said look you've got the wrong person and they were ignored. They actually put Mr Macmillan on death row pretrial so for fifteen months before the trial, he was on death row until the the press would say deathrow defense. Walter mcmillen will be arraigned deathrow defendant Waldwick McMillan and you create this environment. and. Black folks would say to me. They'd say Mr. Stevenson it would have been so much better if he'd been out in the woods, hunting by himself in this crime took place. Because, at least then we could entertain the possibility that he might be guilty, but because we were there with him, because we know he's innocent. We feel like we've been convicted to yeah, and that sense that it's a that a community accusation that it's a community conviction community sentence was very palpable, and notwithstanding the romance of Tequila mockingbird. MOCKINGBIRD was just complete hostility to confronting the overwhelming evidence of his innocence. We found kind of evidence. The man who they got testify against him, admitted that his trial testimony was false. We tapes of him acknowledging that we had other witnesses, a police officer had been to his house on the day of the crime buying from the fish fry where he was selling money. Who could confirm is innocent, and still everybody just resisted in fought. I got more death rats working on that case, an.

"I'm podcast and you wrote this book. That's great influence. So I guess my question to you is. Do you use a different method of persuasion persuasion or think about persuasion differently. When you're in a courtroom and arguing emotion or arguing that appeal then you do when you're talking to people outside the courtroom room is something different where there's is there something the same about those things? Yeah well I think you have to talk to the audience that you're in front of right and I mean as a lawyer I I I WANNA know. WHO's on the jury I wanNA know who's on the bench and I wanna find out as much about them as I can because I need to go where they are and get get them to follow me someplace where they can in my judgment? Make the right decision. Make the decision if I pretend like it doesn't matter who they are and where they they are with their presumptions are and just insist that they come where I am not going to be very effective and I think that's true whether you're in the court or out of the court so I speak in faith spaces and I. I WanNa talk about my faith in those spaces. I speak in other places where people don't respond as well to the faith tradition and that's not going to be a priority for me. I think the goal is to reach people where they are. I don't think we should imagine if we change laws that things will change. Its that hearts and minds. The thing I think narrative is really powerful in both places and both inside and outside absolutely to shoe lawyers appreciate the power of narrative they rely rely on facts and law and they are disappointed by the outcome. Because you haven't given people of having given people a a path to travel to follow you to that right place and it's really powerful and I think outside of courts We have to use narrative more effectively. And that's why we want to tell the stories of people who were enslaved in who were lynched and who had to overcome segregation so that we can appreciate the power of that struggle. But Yeah I think you have to for me at least I I wanna go where people are if I'm talking abroad and their set of issues that are distracting people in a particular country that I want to know what those issues are So I can be responsive to that even as advocating for something broader. You said once in your household gifts were microscopes not football absolutely. That's exactly right now. My mother my family. We didn't have a lot. There were times when you know The water wasn't working the way it's supposed to be couldn't do this. You couldn't take shower. You couldn't think about but my mother went into debt by us. The World Book Encyclopedia. We didn't have a lot of things we didn't have. We didn't have a TV but we had that World Book Encyclopedia and if my family was upset if my parents were upset I knew that if I went over and got one of those books and started reading it would change the dynamic in the space because in our family there was something hopeful about this ability to explore new worlds through books two words and that's a gift that and my grandmother gave my mother. My mother gave to me. And you know if I've had any success in these professions that require study and application of reason and all of that is because I you know I was loved by these people who thought it not wasteful to push themselves to create opportunities for their children to read. You said something else about reading which I totally agree with the number quite thought of it this way that by giving people who might not otherwise have opportunities to read you were giving them a gateway to something that they wouldn't otherwise have and that's imagination absolutely which is not just about creative imaginations not just about you know understanding you know the Harry Potter world but in the real world and they get older they can look at something and see it for what it is and how it could be different because they have learned the power of imagination from books. Absolutely no you you become someone who believes things you haven't seen which you have to if you're going to change the world if you're going to create more justice. I never met a lawyer here until I got to law school i. I'd never met a lawyer. I had to believe I could be something I'd never seen. You beat the first one but it's just that kind of relationship you develop with the world around you and right weeding will allow you to imagine things to think. Think about things to believe things that can be created. Even if they haven't yet been realized in science science it's amazing to me how scientists absolutely except except that they innovate they discover things. They believe that. Just because we haven't seen that planet yet that it that it could still exist and we think of science being the opposite of that but it's actually a fulfillment of that hope and that's you know if anything been what's defined by my career. I just believe you have to stay hopeful. I actually actually think that hopelessness is the enemy of justice. Injustice prevails were hopelessness persists. I think hope is our superpower if I've had any ability to do anything thing is because I've been willing to hope for things that haven't been seen yet. I'm GonNa continue with that because I almost persuade myself. The hat persuaded myself that. You're either hopeful where you're the problem. There's no real middle ground and we have to keep pushing keep wanting more more Dr mercy more compassion justice more opportunity. That's what animates by work. Why don't you think that a lot of politicians don't practice the politics of hope When all the evidence shows it's very powerful is it because they don't know how to do it? And the second best way to motivate people through fear so you have the runner up to I. Hope is fear and so a lot of people don't know how to practice hope so they do fear. Well I do think that I think that what we've seen succeed in too. Many situations are the politics of fear and anger. And I think it's easier frankly to try to govern through fear and anger then to inspire people through hope open aspiration and commitment to caring about one another. It's harder to be hopeful when we're dealing with very real problems you also have thank you feel an absolute. Everyone feels presumably some amount of anger and frustration. And it's about conquering that and appealing to your better l.. Absolute some people can't do that absolutely. And what's bizarre is that we know in our personal relationships. You know that that we shouldn't make judgments about our children when we're angry with them or we shouldn't make judgments about other people when we're fearful about them that really get a to a good judgment. We have to kind of push those things aside which can distract us from really seeing people. Clearly we see this obviously in courtrooms and and yet you see so many elected officials so many politicians reaching for those very powerful I think fear anger the essential ingredients of oppression of treating people. Because you accept things you wouldn't otherwise except you tolerate things you wouldn't otherwise tolerate and that's why I think rejecting the politics of fear and anger is so important and you don't have to do it. In the abstract it can be replaced with something hopeful. We have the highest rate of incarceration in the world. I I hope that that changes. I don't think our country can be a great country if we have one in three black male babies born in this country expected good to go to jail or prison if we put six million people on probation and parole. I think we should hope for something better than to be the world leader in incarceration and their whole host of things. I think we should hope for something better for our planet in terms of climate change in the kind of spaces that we create for our children. I think we should hope for something better than the kind of income inequality the quality that we see all around us. We hope for something better than seeing struggling families trying to cross borders because they're so desperate and traumatize in their home spaces that they would do anything going to get into this country. We should hope for something better than what we're seeing and I think that's the only way we progress. That's the only way we evolved. That's only way become a truly the great society and that hopeful note right Stevenson. Thank thank you.

"stevenson" Discussed on Backlisted
"Available Ayaan on the web so that is village green by the kinks and we're excited about talking about Miss Broncos Book. Ah some for several reasons one of which is that it is a classic of English village life and we all thought it would be fun to have a little village theme today's episode so the wake is indeed a village of hands where it would is a village go onto the bad potent. What was the link with Sam Riviera's pawn. I think there's a couple of links there and I think one is that that Miss broncos book is very very much self-consciously book. You are sitting there reading roads and the other thing is just this little thing. He was talking about money and for me. One of them is moving. Parts of the book is actually actually when the market gets paid. No actually it is genuine lead tearjerking because who ever thinks about that who ever writes about whoever writes about it and actually she is just two hundred pounds. It's life changing it changes. It does because she bloody. He needs money 'cause she's. She works. It's not fair easing fairies giving you stories. I'm going to give some topics. I think this book is about village life. It's a book about books as a book about the mechanics of writing and publishing which is of course very atlas station and it's also a brilliant example example of the sort of novel republished but in the last twenty years which is we would call Middle Brow Middle middle-brow as we talked about this on the cross before is a legitimate term adopted by academia rather than I'm not being snitty by using the word Middle Brow Shelley. When did you first read this book or come across this book so I have to soften one is a direct onsite question which she's actually that I was in hotshots bookshop and I really really really wants to come to read and honestly. I wish I could remember what had happened in my life that we we all have everything happening. Our lives now that means we need to comfort read and of course you know. Booksellers are gods and this particular books that are just look. This is the key you need never ever have picked up ever and I actually loved it. Can I tell you another story can I can. I tell you how Sarah waters waters heard about Miss Bengals book she had about me sparkles book because I'm a real dickhead so basically I am really really bad around people whose work I hugely hugely admire and I'm just awful and I have just learned the I literally physically need to staying away from people because of a really bad thing I did to offer. Miller wants and I'm not kidding. I'm not kidding so I'm all I was the thing that she was at and I can't tell you how much I love her work. I mean words don't express and she was in the room and I said to the person that was wave shit. Okay don't worry I'm going to press my back against this wall and not go near her. Things will happen and after a while the person always I said I think it needs to be a bit braver and pulled me towards her and I- involuntarily curtsied bobbed much as perhaps a maid in one of her lovely books might Bob and she was absolutely charming and love issues she was writing the paying guests at the time and we were talking about all the things she'd read lally willows and stuff like that and I said Oh you must read sparkles book and she said that's fabulous. WHO's it by and I was so struck I said R L Stevenson and she kind of went from nineteen thirty four. Ah Yes thinking Kaneko yes R L Stevenson and dwayne. I think cried into some crisps Bart's. It's you were almost right because Stevenson is a second cousin of our L. Stevens here we go. I'm going to do the bio right now. Dorothy Emily Stevenson was born in Edinburgh in eighteen ninety three. She was the daughter of one of the Lighthouse Stevensons. Robert Louis was her father's father's first cousin and she lived in Scotland all her life is everything I got stage. I just had a sudden thought back keys but it's okay and she lived in Scotland all her life which is interesting when you consider that she wrote about English villages many of her books she didn't go to school but was educated by a governess started to write stories when she was eight. She applied against her parents. France wishes sat and passed the entrance exams for Oxford University and was offered a place but her parents for better to go fearing university degree was an unforgivable unforgivable deterrent potential suitors so you certain when you read Miss Broncos book the wishful Film Element is coming through loud and clear rights so here's the thing about d e Stevenson she wrote her first book in Nineteen Twenty three when she was US thirty one a second did not pay for nine years in nineteen thirty four she published Miss Bungles Book and thereafter she wrote a normal year selling over four million copies of her books in Britain and three million in the USA. She is amazing. If you go on the Internet she's and and there are numerous American fan sites devoted to her work. There is a fantastic website with a page on it where you can download what's called. Susan's never ending the Stevenson's spreadsheet which cross references every character and location in all those fourteen novels because Stevenson light to use the same names locations locations and characters and have them pop-up like proper world building her you know and so noble or sequences of novels that appear to have nothing in common with one another. She would thread together for her for her own amusement. I think those are cushy. New Readers like to play the game along with her. I have I just I have absolutely love this. This is like a large steaming Mug of all ix on a cold winter's night. It's just the most fun to remember when Doc Syrian very impasse in with here talking about g cooper we said what's good about Judy Kufa's books and he went pleasure. This book is I found this Solo. How incredibly enjoyable shedding because it's because persona so closely your there's no Jew. Do we think we could offer the listeners are like in a nutshell is set up of the book is all right. I'll give it a go okay so miss. bonkers book is the book within the book. Say Misbehaves uncle lives in what at the opening of the novel seems to be an absolutely picture postcards chocolate box English village and she has written. This incendiary book called disturb. Oh is it colder server pace. No go on it's cool. They chronicles rules of English village and her publisher changes the title so this incendiary book is about what she's really going on in an incredibly thinly disguised silverscreen. Her villages called Silver Stream. She calls it. Copperfield in the book and the People are she just as a little name substititions like themed substitutions fool them and what's interesting is that the book within the book the Gins with setting the scene with a peaceful little village and then a goat skin clad golden piping being boy comes through the village. Piping Music and the music sends people crazy and sub huge anarchy and subversion Russian occurs. People's lives disrupted and actually pretty much. That's what happened in the book. We are reading people with one another. Can you read this. A A little bit about one of the character's lives in the village is reading disturbed the pace for the first time yet. I will so the character who's reading Sarah Walker. She's the doctor's wife. Mr Abbott who was mentioned in this extract is the editor of of disturbance of the peace or chronicles English village and the known not too plume is John Smith so Misbach wrote the book but the Non Diplomats John Smith the one that's she's at the point with golden boy has has arrived the golden boy piped on through the High Street and up the hill and then down again past the vicarage and the old church which slumbered quietly likely by the river wherever he went he left behind him on rest and strange disturbance people woke up cast aside the fetters of conventional behavior and followed the primitive impulses of the hidden natures in some hearts the clear sweet music woke ambition in some it won't memories of other days and prompted kind actions. Some of his hearers would driven to acts of violence in others. It kindled love at least John Smith said that the music kindled love but Sarah Walker who knew something about that commodity something more she suspected than John Smith would have said the emotion which the boys pipe kindled in the heart of its here is was not love at all but passion after this things began to happen in Copperfield incredible things major waterford discovered that he'd loved Mrs Mildmay for four years without without ever having suspected it so he rushed across the road and found Mrs Mildmay in her garden and propose to her with fervor which almost made Sarah's eyebrows disappear appear into her hair. It may be remarked in parenthesis that Sarah's eyebrows wear a distinctive feature darker than her hair and beautifully arched this was the love scene which made such an impression upon Mr Abbott it was a passionate scene and had either been written by somebody who knew very little little about such matters somebody who knew a great deal it was either very innocent or else it wasn't and I love the lightness of the pros. The pros is really really really good. It appears to have been simply chatted down and in order to do that. You have to be really good writer so that's the first thing the second thing is. This book was published in the Nineteen Thirties. That scene is like a brilliant Mickey. Take Ove- kind of strand in English fiction the time in which we might include Sylvia Townsend Warner we oughta make him the great go pan I after making this so idea of of Magical Pantheon stick things occurring in the English countryside is a is a is a trope in that era we had I take the Mickey Alba in this context seems really funding the company but it also goes through don't you think into sort of Elizabeth Jenkins's World Uh Tortoise and the Hare which we did this sort of the things bubbling under kind of supernatural things bubbling under English villages the book itself is brilliant because Uh nobody can tell whether it's satire or just innocent and Miss Broncos book is exactly the same you know I mean you know. You never quite sure how on top of how clever she is being. I think she's actually being very clever..

"So I was watching. My father's his dad was dying. And I knew from the growing up that my grandfather was not kinda gentler type, especially my dad. But I watched the tenderness is he's eyeing. Yes. My dad he's a sit with him and hold his hand as he passed. So I asked him my father said over you last time he showed a infection. He's the last time. I remember I was too. I said, so you're sixty three. So I don't think I'll wait that long. We weren't to be big huggers.

And imagine yourself sitting on the couch holding hands with your father met my dad, and I have become close this year. And we've had a lot of breakthroughs, and we have a very new relationship things are incredibly good. However that makes me squirm it makes me feel intensely uncomfortable to imagine myself doing that which in the spirit of what we're working with here.

"stevenson" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"Here is Bryan Stevenson, give us one time. You will not regret it. Bryan. Stevenson, welcome to the show. Thank you. It's good to be with you. I wanted to begin by asking you about something that you say often and every time I've heard it. I've thought that's interesting. But I'm not sure I quite understand it, which is the opposite of poverty is not wealth. The opposite of poverty is Justice. What do you mean by that? America's credibly wealthy country. But we've always had enormous stratification the wealth of the colonies was built on ah genocide of removing native Americans from lands that they occupied we kept their names, but we made them leave. There were millions of native people on this continent before white settlers came and we killed them through famine Warren disease, and we didn't really knowledge the injustice of that the unfairness of that. Because we were persuaded that our economic security and our political development required. The acquisition of these lands. And it began this way of thinking about wealth that is disconnected from the inequality injustice, the abuse the oppression that is sometimes used to create that wealth, and that that habit was reinforced through slavery and. And we created great wealth in new territories and the south and the colonies by relying on enslaved people and the labor and the benefits that that created without any real thinking about how that wealth was sustained by abuse and oppression and inequality and injustice, and even after slavery. I don't think we ever really dealt with the unfairness of exploiting people for decades centuries. And then doing nothing to help make them whole. And it wasn't just formerly enslaved people. It was poor white that came to this country as immigrants who were also often abused in working places in minds. And this idea has emerged in America. That wealth is created by people with great talent in great ability. And we value wealth, we respect wealth, we admire wealth and. We disdain the poor. We blame the poor. We fought the poor for not achieving more economic security, and we have a I think really unevolved attitude about about how to address poverty when I look at our history of using power and abuse to sustain and creates structural, poverty and institutionalize it without any Shane. It makes me question with we truly understand what poverty represents there are a lot of countries across the world that are poor. But in most of the developing more ninety percent of the people eighty percent of the people are poor..
"stevenson" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Come out and say, hey, hey, hey, hey, you get back out there in the hallway. You wait until your lawyer gets here. I don't want any defendant sitting in my courtroom without their lawyer, and I have to apologize to say, oh, I'm sorry, your honor. I didn't introduce myself. My name is Brian Stevenson. I am the lawyer and then the judge will laugh and the prosecutor will laugh and I'll make myself. Flaps. I don't want a disadvantage, my clients and the burden of this presumption which manifests itself in our criminal Justice system where people are wrongly, accused wrongly, convicted or unfairly. Sentenced is the reason why we can't talk about slavery. Terrorism segregation without talking about mass incarceration without talking about police violence without talking about this contemporary presumption of dangerousness in guilt. The continues to burden black and Brown people, and we live in a country today. We're one in three black male babies is expected to go to jail or prison, and nobody cares. Nobody's talking about it, it's not a political issue. It's not a campaign issue, and it is the same indifference to a crisis impacting African American communities that existed during the time of segregation that existed during the time of lynching that existed during the time of slavery. And if we don't wake up, if we don't challenge that indifference, they'll be new. Manifestations fifty years from now. One hundred years from now in part of the vision for me of this museum, I want to create a country one hundred years from now, black and Brown people are not presumed dangerous and guilty will we acknowledge this history where we recover from it, where we don't want to celebrate the mid-nineteenth century by talking about how glorious romantic it is by simply ignoring slavery. Well, we don't talk about how great our country has been without acknowledging this hardship, this brutality, and I just think we're not going to get there until we create spaces like this museum. I want to take you back to a story that you told they believe it was in a TED talk that you gave where you were invited by a woman here. And Rosa Parks was, yeah, and she wanted to hear. And then she used said Rosa Parks, told you that you would be tired. Tired, tired. By the work. You are undertaking hair the equal Justice initiative, and then the woman who invited you said that you needed to be brave, brave, brave. Yeah. Where do you draw the strength. To be brave and not be tired when what you're doing is it must just sap you? Yeah, of all kinds of energy. Yeah. Well, you know, I feel really fortunate in some ways to be doing this work in Montgomery because when you live in a place like Montgomery when you work in a place like Montgomery, it's impossible to ignore that you're standing on the shoulders of so many people who've done so much more with so much less. You know, I sit in this room and I look out that window and sometimes when I get really overwhelmed and really challenged a look out the window, nothing about the people who were trying to do what I'm trying to do sixty years ago. And what they had to frequently say is my head is bloodied but not bowed. I've never had to say that and as difficult as the task that we have to face as hard as the work is. It's been made easier because enslaved people found a way to endure and survive. And when I think about the kind of courage, it took to do that. When I think about the kind of commitment, it took to do that. I just don't feel like I'm entitled, I don't even feel like I'm allowed to say, I'm tired. I can't do this. I can't do that. I feel like I have to do it because I'm being watched by the souls and spirits of the insects. I really do feel that this street, it's so historic right down three blocks. Here's where people were brought. They will be paraded up the street where on the site of a former warehouse, all around here spaces where people were lynched. Rosa Parks was pulled off that bus three blocks from here, Dr. king's churches. This I feel like I'm being watched by the souls and spirits of the enslaved, the lynched, the segregated and with their sacrifice with their struggle with their heroism and their courage and their dignity. I can't actually stop. I can't not do what has to be done. And the beautiful thing is that when we actually do something that I hope is good, like this museum that I hope is. This memorial, I just feel watched by those souls and spirits. I feel encouraged. I hear them may be saying, okay, you keep doing that. That's a good thing.
