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. Well enough that the plan you know some form of physical therapy because he had lost all. Movement in in his right side of his body because of stroke. Unfortunately about four days later on the twenty eighth like at. One thirty in the morning I get that phone call and said phone call that we all. Dread. In. Our. Lives. In the middle of the night from the hospital, and they basically told me that during the course of that evening that his his His heart stopped three times. 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.

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?

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
