What Do the Scriptures Say About Abuse?
"Women of faith. You're really familiar with the wheat in the tears. And for you women who are not a faith. Please indulge me in listening to this and i would love your help as well. I've been studying the parable of the wheaton the tears and i'm wondering if matthew thirteen verse twenty five where it says but while men slept i wonder sometimes if that means that while the clergy while the legal system and basically any man who could stop the abuse but won't right they will not hold the abuser accountable. They won't believe us they won't listen to us. That as these men sleep that the children of the devil grew and grew until you could see their fruits. Basically is what this is talking about. And so a lot of victims of abuse try to justify not setting boundaries with the abuser. Because he's quote unquote a child of god like well. He's a child of god. And so i'm gonna love him and care about him and god loves him but in this parable starting in matthew thirteen it clearly states that there are children of the quote unquote wicked one. And i've really been thinking about the way that the scriptures both the bible and the book of mormon describe men who are not obeying the commandments. They don't say and he didn't obey the commandments. Because he felt shame and so we wanted to love him and care about him. They don't say that they actually call them a word and the word that they call them is wicked. This is a common term used throughout the scriptures. Part of me is wondering. Why don't use this term anymore. This wicked term and part of it is the christian. You know aversion to passing judgment but christ also asks us to decipher between good and evil. That's part of the reason why we're here on earth and so. I think this is an interesting thing to think about. There are those of us who have set boundaries. We've removed every single thing. The abuser can use to hurt us so essentially there's nothing left for them to use to hurt us except for one thing our children and because they're the dad they have that in and they're able to assert control that way every day. I has stories of shiro's victims of abuse who are slaughtered regarding custody in the courts. They're not believed or supported by their churches and everyday i hear about how their children these children of wicked men and righteous mothers are just dragged through chaos and

COVID-19 vaccine distribution faces logistical challenges
"Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew mullah my guests today sarah wheaton and dr arthur caplan sarah wheaton chief policy correspondent for politico europe. She joins us from brussels. And autho kaplan is professor of bioethics at new york. University's school of medicine. He joins us from the woods of connecticut. This first part of the show. I want to talk more domestically about what. The responsibilities and duties and possibilities are in terms of vaccinations and how domestic governments go about organizing them the second part of the show. We'll talk more about the global picture. But sarah i'll start with you not withstanding the united kingdom which is actually proceeding with the vaccinations at a reasonably impressive clip. The non uk european countries. Actually being too slow by half they'd seemed to have got off to a very sluggish. Start indeed and it's causing quite a bit of domestic problems around the block and as well it's also calling into question european union's unity in fact. There's a huge blame. Brussels faction basically saying that the eu was too slow to buy doses compared to the united states and the united kingdom on the other hand. You also see that many countries including germany. Which has been one of the most vocal in criticizing. Brussels is not doing a very good job of getting the doses out that they have. is it. just a question of polaroid if you will if we focus on one specific example you look at a country like the netherlands which would appear to have every imaginable advantage. Where doing something like. This is concerned. It is geographically tiny eddies rich. It is well organized you would think vaccinating. The netherlands would be relatively straightforward. Is these things go and yet one. They have barely started and to the government has picked this moment to resign on mass over. Something else entirely right. I think it's really fascinating if you look at the databases that lay out. How countries have been doing with their vaccination. There are some things that show number of doses administered per one hundred. And there's not an obvious pattern so again sort of make sense that you can. Denmark are doing very well but then you have italy. You have spain. You have slovenia and lithuania in the top ten whereas you have big wealthy countries like germany and france and the netherlands as you mentioned doing quite poorly and each country is a precious snowflake with a health system and the value said that really drive this so one of the factors in the netherlands. The case in many countries is at one point. It looked like the astra zeneca vaccine was the front runner that was both the cheapest and the most logistically simple. It doesn't need kind of special freezing transportation so i think the netherlands was a country where they were more banking on that particular shot being the one that was available so they didn't think as much about how they were going to be doing the logistics for a more complicated marnie vaccine in germany. They say actually part of the issue is that germany has many different health insurance systems. And so the data about who actually qualifies for this vaccine is not consistently available whereas in countries like spain and italy. You may be due in certainly in the united kingdom where you have the national health service you have various centralized data system author another thing that countries have had a long time to think about is the order in which they roll the vaccines out. Obviously who gets it i. You can't vaccinate everybody the same week. Does it strike you that. There's much in the way of interesting or indicative divergence in in who is prioritizing. What here in the uk of call us where credit where it's due to the government as we were saying they're doing quite well. They started out with old people. Care homes people with chronic illnesses which might make them more vulnerable. Is that the smart thing to do. I wonder myself with a more thought. Should be given to vaccinating. People like retail workers bus drivers refuse collectors. Delivery people the ones who have to interact with the public and the ones without whom society really would grind to a halt. Yes well we spent an announcement of time in the us arguing over who should go first. Who should go second new should go third lots of categories federal advice flying around about prioritization. But we learned a couple of things once. The vaccine went to the states. They all decided their own priorities. So in some parts of the us prisons and prison staff are being vaccinated in other states. The governors have said no. We're not doing that because they don't like prisoners basically even though that's a high risk population and could be a place where the virus easily spreads back to the community. I've talked to a lot of people who run group homes for intellectually disabled people in nursing homes or care homes but out in the community. They're getting no supply they got forgotten. So i'm lis- despite lots and lots of arguing if you had a clientele of down syndrome individuals. Their death rates are six seven eight times as high as everybody else but somehow the prioritization list so we did spend a lot of time arguing but now we have fifty states with fifty different policies. We've seen a little cheating as a result because when you don't have consistency people start to say that. I'm not gonna follow the rules. So we have people who are rich. Flying to florida to get in line to get vaccinated. Florida per usual doesn't seem to care exactly who's supposed to be a priority. The lord help us to even vaccinating canadians. Their her down there snowbirds so that's causing tension among the locals. But here's the take on less than than i learned. It's great to have these arguments. About who goes i. If your logistics don't work it doesn't matter what your list is if you can't get supply out to the meat packers of the delivery. People are wherever if what we do. Is we send the supply to hospitals and nursing homes or care homes as we've done here that's where the vaccinations occur and those institutions will just vaccinate their employees high risk.

"wheaton" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer
"Welcome back America. It's Hugh Hewitt. I'm joined now by add stature at is the dean of Wheaton College and At Wheaton College. He also leads the Billy Graham Center. Dean steps, sir. Welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show. Thanks for having me on Toe. Let everyone know we don't have to rush because I arranged for Dean steps or to join me at the end of my show so that we could have a long conversation. It's an interview, not a debate. And even though the show will go off the conversation will go on. It will all be posted on YouTube. And on my website, Dean, Welcome your article In the U. S. A. Today evangelicals face a reckoning Donald Trump in the future of our faith. Was sent to me by another old friend with whom I have deep disagreements on politics, and he urged me to read it. I thought it was a new, interesting presentation of your position, so I I appreciate that has it sparked a lot of interest. But as it was, I guess the you know their top headline or most of the day on Sunday, and I think part of it from people who maybe don't like evangelicals, and then part of it from people or evangelicals like me. You're concerned about what evangelicalism has or is becoming So we share a common faith. Even though I'm an evangelical Roman Catholic Presbyterian, which is neither here nor there. I'll explain it another time. You know you're not supposed to be all those things at once. But I know it doesn't make me a Lutheran either. It just means I go to Mass on Saturday and I go to the Presbyterian Church on Sunday. Uh, that practice has been blessed both by bishops. And I'm an elder in the Presbyterian Church. Not really serving s O s. So I had what I wanna ask you at the beginning in the article, you write that evangelicals believe in the good news of the Gospel that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and in our place. Would you also add, and that he rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and is alive today. Indeed, I would. I believe that's central to the Christian faith that Jesus was dead on Friday and Sunday back from the dead and receiving in migration through faith gives us new and everlasting, eternal life. I thought you might like it was just excluded from the USA Today article and I thought to myself hey left out the punchline, But editors are editors. Um, is salvation exclusively reserved for those who put their faith in the resurrected Christ. I do believe it. Is that the salvation by grace alone through faith alone and then Jesus work alone, He said. I am the way the truth and the life No one comes to the father except through me. So I want people understand you're very mainstream is sexual intimacy outside of marriage Sinful. Let me say mainstream is probably not the term to describe a conservative Angela goes like me. But the answer your question is yes. We've got reserves sex for marriage between one man and one woman over one lifetime, And I would be a conservative evangelical. Yes. Okay. So when was the last Republican presidential candidate? You voted for I've okay. I don't generally reveal who I voted for. But I have been consistently pro life pro official marriage, pro religious liberty of deep religious liberty concerns now that unfortunately, I think President Trump's kind of erratic responsible last few weeks has led to the loss of the Senate. Now we're gonna face serious religious liberty concerns related to the quality act and Morva. But in general, I don't tell people who I voted for. Have you ever voted for a Republican president? Oh, my gosh. Yes. Okay. I just I just wanted people. I thought you were, uh more Republican than you were Democratic. And therefore I thought your credibility with my audience might increase their well. I would say it's very fair to say I believe that lower taxes are better for society. I believe, you know, I mean, I think they would very much lineup. Kind of as a pastor and religious leader. One of the things that you know I teach and preach the Bible regularly is I don't want people so I didn't vote for that person. So I can't listen to that person. But I think you and I listen to your show. I think you and I will be very aligned on most issues that and I do, too, by the way on by friend I'm aligned with on most theological issues. We just disagree on politics. That's why I wanted you to have a long set up and that's why I'm going to ask you again. This is for credibility with my audience and people who will go on. Listen to this. You already said that most evangelicals me included in your article are grateful for the Supreme Court justices. He appointed Trump and for some of the religious liberty concerns he addressed. His antiabortion stance is surprised me again a surprise many again, me included, and for that I was thankful. You noted that how important is the Supreme Court? Dean? I think it's I think it's very important. You know someone who's you know, talk about life. You know, I One of the defining factors of my vote has to do with life on unborn life in the womb and so deeply important, and I think, ultimately that coming out of Trump administration, I think in that article, I mentioned that a lot of burned burned down the Republican Party. There'll be consequences for Grabs decades to come on what has happened to the Republican Party and at the same time, I'm thankful for the three Supremes and actually say publicly and vocally supported All three Supreme Court justice picks that he that he selected and again lots of other things again. I think one of the challenges is you could be deeply concerned about what President Trump has done to the country. And in my case, too, evangelicalism and Thankful for executive orders on religious liberty as I am and be thankful for Supreme Court and let me just say we're going to need a conservative Supreme Court considering now in part because of President Trump's actions. At the White House has been lost to the Republican Party and the Senate. Now you're gonna have your one buffer on some of these religious liberty concerns will be the Supreme Court. So, Dean where I'm going with this is that I believe a lot of evangelicals will so value the religious liberty and pro life and other matters that the president engaged in and proceeded to to advance. Your arguments about the last two months will pale in comparison to the thanks, ladies and gentlemen, the conclusion of my interview.

"wheaton" Discussed on KCRW
"In Los Angeles and kind ridsdel it is Wednesday. Today, the 28th of October. Good as always, to have you along, everybody. You had things up. It's pretty simple virus cases are way way higher in way more places. There is no relief package coming probably February at the earliest, if at all, if everybody is honest with themselves That's it. That'll spills over into the real economy. Which the stock market is not Thank you very much, but which it does reflect, and so you get a cratering day on Wall Street today, all three major indices off 3 3.5% all sectors got clobbered. Including with good reason. Commercial aviation. We mentioned that because Boeing reported a quarterly loss of $466 million this morning planes just aren't selling right now. Company also said it's gonna lay off another 7000 people. So marketplaces into Euler gets is going with a story about a company. That is a big factor in that really economy. I was talking about Boeing said today it expects to end next year with around 130,000 employees. It started 2020 with a workforce of 160,000. Richard Aboulafia is an aviation analyst, a teal group. Historically, Boeing has been the world single biggest plane maker and the biggest single exporting manufacturer in the US, So it really is a needle mover in terms of the broader economy. And sort of like G Boeing has worked to diversify. Boeing has a lot of commercial military defense software and engineering programs. It's not just building the big 7 47 jets of old That's Arthur Wheaton at Cornell University. It's a pretty big corporation and has a huge impact on supply chains, he says. There's a vast array of sub contractors in the US and world wide that produce for and with Boeing. So in demand for Boeing products declines, it's felt by many of Boeing 17,000 suppliers, like those who make jet engines and parts for wings. Keep in mind that these are not just people that are turning wrenches. Michael Boyd is an aviation industry consultant in Evergreen, Colorado. So it's not like just getting rid of a couple mechanics. You're getting rid of some highly trained people that you're gonna have to get back eventually. When people eventually returned to flying. But Richard Aboulafia teal groups as his fears that manufacturing will soon start feeling the pain of the pandemic, like retailing hospitality already have, and I think, unfortunately, we're bound to see additional production cuts and job losses in the commercial aerospace industry, along with other similar losses in other parts of the economy. Because as the biggest companies go, so goes the American economy. I made the Euler for marketplace. Speaking of the American economy tomorrow morning, 8 30 Eastern. We will get from the good people at the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the number for third quarter gross domestic product, the government's estimate. For how much the economy grew in July, August and September. We know it is going to be big, a record breaking number by a lot because for part of Q three Billions of dollars were flowing into the economy, through relief checks and extra unemployment benefits and the paycheck protection program and all the rest of the cares Act. There was a big rebound in jobs numbers. So that rebound has slowed. Their was a rebound in retail spending data, even though tens of millions of people were then and still are collecting unemployment assistance. There is something we want you to keep in mind that it's important for when you hear that GDP number tomorrow. It's that whole annualized thing. Does me back in June, reminding you that quarterly GDP gets reported on an annualized basis to say it again, annualized, a refresher, perhaps annual izing means taking something that happens over a short period of time and extrapolating it out over an entire year. You make $1000 a week, for instance. That weekly wage. Annualized is $52,000. So we have been obviously over that whole annualized thing before, but we're going to give it another quick pass today because it matters. So here we go. Say the economy grows 1% over one quarter Ah, to annual eyes that as the government does you assume the economy is going to grow 1% the next quarter. And then 1% the quarter after that on then 1% again the quarter after that, that is 1% quarterly growth, annualized. At 4%, Right. Actually, it's a hair more than 4% because of the magic of calm pounding. It will spare you the math. Here is the thing you need to understand, though. After that terrible, terrible, terrible second quarter, The Atlanta Fed is predicting that in the third quarter, the economy grew 37% annualized, which is yes. An eye popping number, but it doesn't mean the economy grew 37% just in the third quarter. 37% annualized is about 8.2% quarterly. So when you hear there was 30 or 37, or whatever percent growth in third quarter as you surely will tomorrow. That is not nothing. But it's not the whole thing either. And as we started with, with virus cases climbing and the easy part of the recovery behind us and no relief bill in sight, even if the third quarter is the fastest growing on record, which you will hear tomorrow. It should not be exactly music to your ears if you'll pardon the pun, Speaking of music. Where it's going to be the wild Wass when we get there.

A Visit with the Main Street Vegan, Victoria Moran
"I. WanNa start off by asking you. So your brand is main street Vegan. Why mainstream? Vegan? Well it's a story actually rip I went to a pita fundraiser late in two thousand ten and they showed videos and I've been seeing videos like this for forty years. It took me quite a while to get from. Vegetarian Vegan back in the day. So I've been around this movement for ever. And I've seen those videos about things that humans do to animals but that night, my heart was extra. And all I wanted to do was write a check for one hundred, thousand dollars in hand it to the pita founder Ingrid newkirk and say here, go fix something but the check would have bounced. So I got on the train thinking okay. What's the plan B. and I literally had inspiration I don't know how to explain this. You know you could say God you could say angels on what all I know is that it came to me very clearly okay you don't have one hundred, thousand K. spare but what you can do is make your. Next Book Main Street Vegan, we want it to be geared to the young woman that you were in Wheaton Illinois in nineteen eighty three when you finally stopped messing around and became a one hundred percent fulltime Vegan it needs to have forty short chapters with a recipe at the end of each one and I'm just kind of taking notes in my head of I could do this, I can do this. So my wonderful literary agent sold the proposal to torture Penguin and the editor called to say so happy to have you happy to have the book. But. We hate main street. You need to change the title and they'd bought it. So I had to do something and I'm coming up with these other titles and they were so boring. But I kept trying to write and then I had a begin miracle and I really do believe that this is the age of those believed that this is the time when all these other ridiculous diets are going to go. The way of the dinosaur plant based is going to be the only thing that sensible people are interested in and the idea that we are killing our fellow beings and destroying the planet is going to start to look like are you serious people really did that? So my Vegan Miracle That day. Was Walking up Broadway. We saw somebody so famous, you can recognize him from the back and that was Michael Moore Now, he had liked another book that I had written a weight loss book fit from within, and so I just handed my card to the woman who was with him and a few seconds. Later I hear Victoria there is Michael Moore, following me up Broadway and we started talking and then we started talking on the phone and on one of these phone conversations I said the book that I'm supposed to write should be called mainstreet Vegan publisher hates main street he said they're wrong. Let me talk to him talk to them so. In a three way call with an Academy Award winner my editor in me he convinced her she convinced the higher ups and when she called to say Main Street Vegan is your title everything else started to pop and I've been given my mission for the rest of my life. So why main street because this thing that we do whether we're coming from the health or the environment or the animals or whatever this is for everybody this is not some elitist thing. We don't have to be rich. We don't have to be leftover hippies or punk rockers. We can just be who we are eat reasonably and love more and to me that's Main Street That is mainstream nuts. you landed on something that just resonated and you knew of his right thing. And I grew up two blocks off main street in Kansas City Missouri. So that may have had something to do with it and mainstream Vegan was at your eighth or Ninth Book Because you've written. Now Than Books Right I've written thirteen. So Main Street Vegan would've been eleven. And
Solving the Murders of Katherine and Sheila Lyon
"Not like we're just talking about it for any kind of thrill. We're talking about it because we need to know what's going on in our society that's making this happen really drew. Okay, so we'll start John. Lyon, met his future wife. Xavier. University in Cincinnati. They were both students there. His wife Mary was from Erlanger Kentucky John was the Chicago. Boy. They married in Air Langer and had their first child a boy they named. Jay. Then after graduation John got a job at a radio station in Ohio, that's where Sheila was born. then. He worked at a radio station Illinois and Catherine more and they're. Following that John worked in both TV and radio in Peoria. He was on a daytime children's program where he played the guitar and Banjo. And in that same time period, nary was in a folk band. And then she gave birth to their youngest child Joe. Some pretty cool people I. Think they sound very interesting. He does. And she s in a folk band I. think that's really cool and it was the seventies. So they were kind of hit by guests. Yeah, probably. John's hard work eventually paid off. You got hired at W. M. A., l.. which at the time, the seventies was the most popular radio station in Washington, D.. C.. And John, was a pretty talented radio personality. So working at this station's worked as a fill in disc jockey, he read the news and he performed in a band, the multitask. Yeah John and Mary were both Pretty Witty People very well-spoken. So March Twenty, ninth nineteen, seventy, five was unseasonably warm in the suburbs of Washington. DC. Catherine. And Sheila Lyon. Ages ten and twelve were on spring break from school. John had worked the night shift the night before and drove home at six. Am that morning and went to bed. She learned Catherine. went to the Wheaton Mall. They had two dollars between them and they plan to get two slices of pizza. And Mary was happy to see them go together. She led the older one, didn't always want to spend time with their little sister, but recently, the two would become close played together like friends. But John Woke up that afternoon to an empty house. Mary had gone bowling and the boys were off playing with friends in the neighborhood. Mary came home with their younger boy. Joe Soon, after John Woke up, then he went back to bed for nap before dinner and Mary went and Rick. Some leaves in their backyard. When the sun began to go down, Mary really began to worry about her daughters. They were usually really good about being home for dinner and Sheila would call if they were at a neighbor's house playing. But Sheila had called and there had been no sign of the girls. But this is nineteen, seventy five. Your mind is not going to go to objection at this point. Nobody really thought like that. No, not then now. So they went ahead and had dinner with the two boys waiting for the girls to show up assuming they would. and. When there was still no word after they finish dinner Mary began calling around to all of their friends. No one had seen them though. So the family drove around looking for the girls and as time passed and they looked for their daughters in the Dr, the alarms really began to go off in their heads that something was wrong. So that's when they decided to call the police. But most runaways. The lions sisters, and they were nearly always found within twenty four hours. So when these girls were still missing overnight, the police began to realize that this was a case that was different. And the idea of follow play was becoming a real possibility at that point. The John and Mary told the police that this was just totally out of character for their girls both were honor roll students, and they both followed rules Catherine who went by Kate. Was the outgoing. Very Athletic,

Sure first of all, thank you very much for inviting me to discuss this haven't discussed this in public manner like this. and. So just to give you the basics on May Twenty First, my dad had a stroke. And so he was hospitalized and during his hospitalization desks when they discovered that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Now, knee him but five other members of my Dad's side family. Tested positive as well, and they all have very close in a suburb in DC called Wheaton Maryland. And so. Obviously I was keeping track and keeping inform with the hospital above my desk condition. Obviously, I can go there to physically see him because of the circumstances. But yet at the time when she told me that he had positive, he was not. On a ventilator. And for three or four days after the twenty first, that was keeping in contact with the hospital. And I'll tell you that every as recently as Monday. The week that he passed away as recently as Monday that which the social worker at the hospital that actually called me. To discuss plans about him having physical therapy with regards to stroke because they felt like his condition at improved.

And they had to resuscitate him use a defibrillator. And at that point he. was back on the ventilator and so this is. You know. Primarily because of defects, the effects of the of the virus that has conditioned completing took a one eighty. Overnight. and. So the hospital called me and said, you know in no uncertain terms that she should come to the hospital to see him because he was in a condition where. He. Could basically go at any moment. And so. You know again it's hard to go to hospital right now to visit anyone because. Everyone's covered from head to tell you know nurses doctors everyone especially in the ICU. But nonetheless, they allow me to go into the ICU to see him. And to say, you know basically my final goodbyes to him because that's the condition where he was at at that moment in time.

When our local power substation mysteriously exploded sending a giant fireball into the sky so large that we could spot it from two miles away which also call us power outages and lots of other problems in our neighborhood.

I got twenty five hundred words done last week. Five hundred words a day. That is my pace. I'm going to do another five hundred words when I'm done with this podcast. I'm shooting to be done by New Year's which I expect means that it'll be a late. Twenty twenty two maybe early twenty twenty three title hard to say hard to say if there will still be publishers or bookstores or civilization by then but assuming all goes according to plan. That's when you can expect now that brings me to today's podcast. Today's podcast is a little weird. I put the call last week for subjects or Essays or stories that I might read aloud in this week's podcast. I ended up deciding with the help of John. Taylor Williams on my sound editor. My very intrepid sound editor. I should say that I would Read aloud someone comes to town. Someone leaves town. He came on board as my editor while I was in the middle of reading that more than a decade ago and so half way through that audio book. It's which is from sounding like crap just sounding really good. Thanks to John so I'm doing a reread of it. It's one of my very favorite of my novels. There's a brilliant professional audio book of it that I urge you to consider picking up narrated by Bronson pin show from perfect strangers among other things. He's a spectacular voice actor and has a lot of rain. She doesn't like chew the scenery in comic fashion in this. He does a spectacular dramatic reading of it. I'm definitely not up to his level but I'm pretty good. I'm reading that next debut on the Potter Palooza podcast festival which is a virtual podcast festival. But then I'm going to put it in the feed. I've got about an hour of it in the can part of it didn't work out. I think because the explosion It it actually Messed UP OUR POWER SUPPLY. Such that there was a lot of static on the line and messed up the quality of the recording. So I'm going to do one last pickup here and then John's GonNa add that for me and it'll be on but then I'm GonNa serialize it here on this podcast so that left me with nothing to record for today but over the weekend I was e mailing with Wilmington lose around the corner and we were talking about stuff that he might WanNa podcast. He's been podcasting. Short stories from the Sixties and Seventies. That are in the public domain. Getting them off the Internet archive and he asked me if I had any favorite authors from that era and I suggested he looked for C. l. More H Beam Piper. But then he said hey you know your stuff is available. And I said sure is and I'd love to hear you read it and actually you know now that you mention that. I love your writing. Perhaps I could read something of yours in my podcast and you can read something of mine and yours. So that is what we've decided to do. Well is going to read one of my short stories this week and I'm GonNa read an essay for you that he wrote. It's a pair of memoirs from two thousand and eight about parenting and my novel. Little brother which his son Nolan really enjoyed. Nolan is now finds strapping young man who I run into in the neighborhood periodically but back then he was just a kid and giving well the kind of heartache. That that every kid gets their parents from time to time. It's a beautiful little memory as you'll hear a moment there's a lovely circularity here because a few years after well wrote this. I published homeland. The second little brother Book and when I needed a narrator for it I knew that I wanted to read it so will is actually the narrator of that book and he appears as a character in that book and so he got to read his own lines as him. Just very funny. If you check out on the Internet archive you can hear. Now take that I posted of him trying to read his own lines and breaking up laughing. There's also a bit where he was meant to read a thousand digits of Pi. He actually gets through about one hundred and I told him that would be fine so anyway. We'll read the second one of these as the official Raider. You can pick that up off my website or anywhere you by audio books with the exception of audible. So it's very nice to be reading Will wheat reminiscence about little brother when he's the narrator of the official audiobook of homeland and then that brings me full circle two forthcoming books? Where I started this podcast. I am about to publish the third book of the Little Brother Series. A book called attack surface. John Taylor Williams. Who at its this? Podcast is presently mastering it Amber Benson. Who appears with on many audiobooks and has also read my own audiobooks and is probably best known for her work on Buffy. She reads the audiobook of attack surface where she is the narrator. Masha the protagonist of that novel. Who appears in both homeland and in little brother? She does a stellar job and the audiobook has just sounded great. And so yeah. There's a full circle. Here will wheaton recommends Bhai novel little brother to his son. He reads the audiobook of homeland. A now I'm reading to You. His reminiscences about his sons reading little brother and what it meant for their relationship just as attack surface. The third little brother is about to come out and you can pre-order attack surface. This is your commercial message for this podcast and I hope you will. And in any event that is all of the four matter. And now I will read to you. From Wil Wheaton's reminiscences from two thousand and eight of how he got his son to read my book little brother.

"Wil Wheaton. How're you doing tonight? Will I am feeling good? My man was a sick game I will. I am so hyped for the kings to come back from a huge road trip huge road victory and then to keep it go and here at stables. I'm feeling good was a slum night but dave there's something a little bit off. I gave you my Stanley Cup the other night. I'm going to have to ask for that back. My rooms is not the same. Sorry I forgot all about the let me. Just say well all right okay. There we go. Thanks name appreciate that all right all right. Let's talk about that game. I star of the game. He took a huge hit in the third period there but Blake was out with one goal three assists plus to almost nineteen minutes and two shots will how excited to see. Blake was on come up with a game like that. Lozad would have my absolute favorite players right now. I love him. I love Pro Horgan. I absolutely love these young players. I have so much respect for Lozad specifically because I think what he's nineteen. He's a little kid and ice skating shoulder to shoulder with some of the greatest players in the game. Right now I just he's so fun to watch. And when he got level there in the third. I'M NOT GONNA lie. It hurt my heart a little bit. Because he's my boy. Dave what did you think of the game and let's go ahead and and referenced the entire season for Blake Lozad. He's been impressive. Well Yeah and nobody saw it. I don't think outta training camp. You know nobody pegged Blake Lozad to be in a in the starting lineup for the La Kings. So I think it's a big step for him and he's grown as the season has progressed and like we'll said he's fun to watch and you can just see brings the energy every night Good Energy Guy to have out there and I love watching the play. Second Star of the Game Martin. I work with a goal and two assists. Not only that but a six game point streak now will how excited regency at Martin. I get back on the board. You know I think for terrific. Just he's such an incredible story to be unsigned and UNDRAFTED Show up the way that he did. He has not only is he a tremendous player but he fits into the system in the chemistry of this team so unbelievably well. I can't remember the last time the kings had that giant cannon of a slapshot just ready to go every time the puck on his stick And like Lozad he so much fun to watch In My nhl twenty the very first slapshot breakaway goal is scored with Martin Short and I leaped up out of my chair and through the controller down and shredded around in celebration of Martin for greatness because I love him not Dave you and I were at the age of All Star game where he set the record with the hardest slap shot. One nine point two. When are we going to see him on leash a shot? Zad Heart and game action man I. We might have seen it already. He's got a couple of blast this year. That are that are ovechkin. Ask and they might even be dare. I say faster than the shot. That'll basket unleashes every night. I don't know I mean that. Shot up the H. All Star game was incredible. We knew it as soon as it came up. Stick right I mean every kind of let let out a collective jaw in the crowd. There was there was a grown. So you can see it. It's got a different feel. It sounds when it comes off his stick and it looks different when it comes off is to compare to anybody else. That's pretty amazing. Ordinarily I'm not one for carrying about the hardest shot contest but when he took that shot I yeah I got excited will. We've got a couple of questions. One person in the twitch chat and by the way thank you for everybody watching on twitch on twitter on facebook on Youtube wherever it is. You're watching this. We do appreciate it. well some people surprised that it was actually. V Will Wheaton and not just somebody on twitter with a with a windscreen name but Some people want to know. Are there any other kings fans that you've worked with on any of the shows or movies? You've participated. I never worked with another person who is as big a kings fan as I am. I went to my first game in probably nineteen eighty. I WANNA say eighty four eighty five eighty six that early toward the end of the Triple Crown. Line like that. That was when I started going to games. The kings weren't especially great team. Then we were definitely not a hockey town and those two things man. I loved it. I was like this takes work and like they. This is a sport. That's weird. That doesn't make sense. That's not native southern California. I'm all in The only other entertainer. I know Who I know personally who loves the Kings as much as I do as Colin Hanks and I consider myself to be an exceptionally good company in that regard with a huge fan has participated in a ton of stuff with the kings will. Another question for you We had wondered this a before the game started. But Mrs Steve Bone wants no favorite memory as a kings fan. And Y Ya I mean. It's so hard to not just say the Stanley Cup in two thousand fourteen because we waited so long for that to happen like it's is to see the Mars jazz hands when that goal went in. I mean like that is. I see that that is for me. It's iconic as as Bob your flying through the air right like I mean it's just like it's so seared into my memory forever but so many incredible memories. I wasn't the miracle on Manchester but I was at what they called in day. The massacre on Manchester which was another game on the anniversary of the miracle on Manchester where the Kings beat. The oilers can or eleven to like four or six or something like that and it was one of those those great rivalry games in the late eighties where there were just slime ball after line brawl and like it was such an exciting game in a playoff series that the kings ended up not winning. But it absolutely didn't matter because it was just so much fun. We've got a question here from Queens. Andrew who sang the national anthem tonight and did a phenomenal job. That was amazing. She wants to know if we could build a perfect kings team with any kings players past or present. Who WOULD YOU PICK? I'M GONNA go ahead and limited to one line. I'll start with the goalie to make it easy on everybody. I'll go with Jonathan quick. Dave why don't you handle the defense and then we'll if you can give us three forwards sure who defense I would have to say Rob Blake and drew doughty. Safe Apex will how many forwards out of all the fifty some years of kings sake We're GONNA Center with Wayne Gretzky. Of course and as much as it pains me to break up the triple crown line. I think we're GONNA put Dionne on the wing and I want an I. I think I'm GONNA I think I'm GonNa Kotaro in the other wing. Even though he's naturally a center yeah I know the correct answer is Luc Robitaille Luc Robitaille Right. I'd like to resubmit my aunt all right. Well we'll allow you one molecule break dancers rogue Tai and DIONNE centered by Gretzky. Obviously everybody knows that I'm on. What is silly? I mean that that's what kind of more on wouldn't know the answer to that. Now they will hand wants to know. Do you play hockey if so what position I did. I played all through high school. I was goalie. I played in Burbank. at the quick and I played street hockey almost everyday All through my teens and well into mid twenties. When I was in my twenties I was playing it as a dad with my kids so I wasn't playing as aggressively as I did win when I was playing with my friends in high school But I love it. I'm I am not in really the super shape these days. I'm not in Great Cardio Shave and I have a hip injury. That just does not want to heal But I miss it. I miss it all the time. I'm runner now so I'm getting the Cardio backup I'm no Darrell Evans. I don't think any of us are but But but I miss it. I miss it all the time and I every time I go by Pickwick I I get some fond memory of having played there. Dave played collegiate hockey and still play. What position were you I play defense and I just have a question for will will. Did you ever play against Jesse's team roller hockey from the garden? Grove Hockey League there. If we listen if we were GONNA play Garden Grove yet to be on the traveling team. Good enough for that. I I was I was I was sort of the lower division. I was in kind of like the everyone gets to play division. That's that sounds a lot like miters adopt bronze levek directly but apparently rookie with NHL. Ninety four controls the name. Yeah will you said you played goalie any goalies from King's pass that you're particularly fond of Kelly ready for life man. I was the biggest fan. I did not need to wear a blue headband. Under my helmet. But you know that I did and I wear number thirty five because I felt number. Thirty five was likely going to be the next number for a kings goalie numerically. Because he had rudy and then you had mcsorley with thirty three thirty four doesn't feel like a red like a good goalie number to me Just doesn't it doesn't look right auditors in me so I took thirty five. Although I'm if you ever see I think Byron wore number thirty four but sorry go ahead if you ever see me at Staples Center a few years ago the Kings did the cruelest gift for a season ticket. Holders where we got these sweaters that are like king sweaters with the Stanley Cup across the back and And we could put whatever name and number we wanted on them and instead of putting a kings player number online. I put my number in. My name is so every now and then you'll see me at staples wherein that there you go kings go ahead and Philip that chat on the twitch channel again. We want to thank everybody listening on Youtube on twitter on twitch on facebook all across the platforms. Let's go ahead and talk about these real games. That have been taking place over the last month. Or so. Dave I asked You During the third period. Who Do you thought was a leading the team in scoring since the eleventh of March since the eleventh of March Martin Burke with that would be the correct answer? That is correct in games against Anaheim Montreal Boston Vancouver Arizona Dallas Nashville St Louis Chicago and San Jose. I'M GONNA have to do the math real quick in my head. Mannheim three against Montreal four five six goals. Eight ten twelve hundred. A lot of assists MARTINSBURG going. Leading the way Andrzej copay tar just right behind him nipping at his heels leading this rush to the playoffs as John Rosen mentioned during the second intermission Tracy wants to know. Well how many jerseys do you have? I probably have close to a dozen I have see leftover from the old days. I've got the mcsorely that I'm wearing and a rudy from the Stanley Cup. Run in ninety three and a birth. Yo from probably ninety or ninety one super deep gut. I was going to go. He said I thought he was great. I still have my Dave Taylor's from when I was in middle school while I am way too big for it now and then and then modern jerseys. I've got a Carter. All Star Jersey Copay Tar with the assistant captain obviously have to have a Bailey Jersey My Clearly and then I love hockey teams. Don't exist anymore so I have a Gordie Howe her way and and I have a Gila. Fleur Quebec Nordiques Jersey. And I love where those out the staples because The people who actually see those inter- like Oh man you know like especially I don't know who doesn't love the whalers I mean maybe Boston fans but like like I don't know anybody who doesn't like have some affection for the whalers as an organization And it's Super Fun to meet people that are that are that That deep into it. Oh and then I also have as a Jersey that that from a a place called. Geeky jerseys they made a team the crushers and it's got Wesley Crushers Rainbow Stripes across the sleeves. I got number eight on my Jersey because I was number eight on the call sheet for next generation. And it's got a picture and got a picture of Leslie on the crest. It is so cool. It's so cool I love it. I don't wear it very often. Where for like real special occasions but I love it. Was that the company that made the Ghostbusters Hockey Jersey as well. Yeah and I I think I have a last starfighter Jersey from well. That's a level of warmth my office. They're fogging yeah but it's great and it's got on the on the back at like at the neck.

Who Needs A Realtor? iBuyers Pay Instant Cash For Your House
"So if you're looking to sell your house and you don't want to deal with realtors maybe don't want people tromping through your living room while there is another option. Companies called either buyers used these computer algorithms to determine an offer price the downside of this it is typically a lower figure than if you went with a traditional route. Here's NPR's Chris. Arnold Janet Jenkins and her husband recently separated. She moved across the country to North Carolina and they decided to sell their home outside Los Angeles and doing open houses to show. The place was problematic in part because Jenkins has a lot of pets as in parrots and and peacocks and her husband was still living in the house with some of them. This is wrangler. Wrangler is an ECLECTIC parrot. He gets into a lot of mischief. And then of course you have the dog crate and you had the bird cages and it was just not the best environment. Kinda here right now how. It might showing the transfer of my places zoo. She knew the realtors would want the animals and her estranged husband out of the house which would mean him catching the bird each time. The parrot is not my husband's favorite pet also needed some repainting and carpeting to get really ready to show and she didn't want to deal with that and so I started looking up home-buying services in ran into Renton instant buyer or EIBAR. Services are growing very quickly in parts of the country companies such as Red Fin zillow open door and offerpad will give you an offer to buy your house in about a day. Then they'll send it inspector by take a closer look now can get you the money for your home as quickly as a week. Daryl fairweather is red fins chief economist. She says I buying companies also offer flexibility. So you can time the selling of your house perfectly to work with buying a new house and moving the eye buyers then spruce up to has is that they buy and sell them again. Redfin today is releasing a report on all the homes being sold this way around the country in Raleigh North Carolina more than seven percent of sales in two thousand nineteen were either sales so it's becoming quite prevalent there and then in markets like Phoenix Charlotte. Atlanta it's more than five percent of sales and fairweather says in many of those places I by our sales doubled from the year before. Redfin is also buying homes in southern California in Janet Jenkins case. She went online answered some questions about her house. And REDFORD's computers ran their algorithms and offered her around five hundred thousand dollars Jr actually thought that was a bit low and so did two of her friends who are realtors so I pushed back. Redfin made her a better offer and they had a deal. Jagan says she thinks he could have made more. Maybe ten thousand dollars if she took the time to fix up the house herself and sold it the traditional way you delete money on the table and while we did. We didn't leave that much. Redfin does get a fee like a regular realtor commission. The company wouldn't say what it's average profit per home is so. Is it a good idea to try to sell your house this way? William Wheaton is a housing economist at MIT. He says it the key to this whole thing is that it works in places where many houses are similar places. Where a lot of these? Ibm Sales Are Phoenix. Las Vegas you have sprawling subdivisions. Warehouses are almost identical. There's not a lot of difficulty in pricing. Those houses the ones where the swimming pool or worth a little more than the ones without but you can do statistical modeling of that and just nail it be ninety nine percent correct in predicting the press and that means I buy off you just a little less than what. The House is worth and still be confident that they can sell it for a little profit but in areas where has are not similar. Say older cities where some homes are newer. Some old some renovated some are not prices are all over the place in those areas. The I. Buyers have to be really really careful so we didn't says they're like we offer you a very low ball price because they are really sure what the house is worth and they don't WanNa lose money exactly. That's why the I. Buying companies so far focusing on places with a lot of similar housing still waiting says in places like that he thinks buyers could really change the way. Homes are sold in large parts of the country. Chris Arnold NPR
