She christened her son. Charles mills mattocks eventually changing his surname to the now infamous manson. When she married a local man named william eugene manson who worked at a dry cleaning business from the get-go kathleen showed little interest in being a mother to her son. During one instance. She took him to a cafe where a waitress who found. Young charles adorable. Joey asked if she could buy him in response. Kathleen said that her son could be changed for a pitcher of alcohol after finishing this she got up left him at the cafe and never looked back. It took charles uncle several days of frantically searching for him throughout the entire town before he managed to locate the waitress So you to our parents. I don't know. Have you ever come into someone asking you to buy your kid. That seems a little weird not yet. Maybe we just having enough places with him. Kids just aren't better door to god. My question is. I hope that that bottle was like a good one then at least some top shelf liquor that was offered for. I'm gonna guess it wasn't. It was at a cafe like this is what we have under the counter. This is. This is what i brought into work today. So here you go. Yeah so pretty terrible. Start to his childhood already. You can clearly see where some of his repressed emotions come one. Hundred percent
Chrissy Teigens New Apology
"Brutal. New accusations are being fired at chrissy. Teigen right after she apologize for ole tweets and admitted she was a troll amongst other things. Now after weeks of silence chrissy apologize in a letter on medium. She admits her past. Tweets were unacceptable and says she's reaching out to those she hurt. She says i was a troll full. Stop and i'm so sorry after looking at the instagram posts and the letter and everything matches said. Do you think people will forgive chrissy. I don't even know my opinion anymore. Because i've spoken to so many people fish for the show. I'm so turned around to say. I feel like because i really thought about this last night and i didn't even know we were going to talk about it but i figured i feel like chrissy teigen. What she did was completely unacceptable. But i think that chrissy teigen knows what she did was completely unacceptable when i read her message or whatever on medium. I felt like it was really authentic. I felt like she had said i'm going to therapy. I'm doing all the therapy. And i really feel like if somebody who's in therapy prior to going to therapy you have so much that you need to deal with that you don't even realize that you kind of look back at that person and you can no longer relate to the mistakes you've made because you're like i have grown so much. I think that we also just put our celebrities on these pedestals when we don't even realize like these are normal. People from god knows where that are like products of divorce have had their own special promise. That has made them who we are. And we're so used to seeing them with a glam team makeup artist. A hairstyle is the perfect clothes all the time. And they're hilarious and we we've become obsessed with them but we don't realize like this person was just like you and i so the fact that we can just immediately turn on. Somebody's so quickly. I just feel like we have a little bit more compassion. The way she should have had with michael costello and whoever else i think she knows that i just think we with we have unrealistic expectations about celebrities like we think that they're rhodes scholars and they've dedicated their life to the peace corps and like they haven't there in the media

Check this out. You see it as a possibility. If he wants to spend a billion bucks beating this guy, he could do it. Absolutely.

Reverse engineer net feeling in china turn into something and is it typically. Does it happen relatively quickly or might take some time. You just kind of dive in and gopher go for it so it's that's not that doesn't really take too long to crack you know 'cause you 'cause you you you have coordinates you know you you know where you're going you know what you're looking for and you'll know when you're there and as soon as you get the The feeling right. What's the process for that turned into a song for her. We got like the right writers for like the right khanna tone and myself so we kinda like just really wrestle and grapple until we feel like we're like really hitting bat specific note and when would it be mike lyrics come first or would it be more sense of melody or might be the hook or is there any typically or no not. The melody is to melody in then we kind of like listen to what the melody is saying it wants to say and might he do like scott versions of the melody and just see if any words fall into place sometimes and at the time dislike if some words do come out then in the places where there are no words you kind of take the the emotion of you're trying to communicate and you find the words and you kind of do a mosaic lyrically. Are you in miami. Now yes sir. How long have you lived in miami miami. Probably like you know like fifteen years with like a four year four and a half year break and that's when we were in. La wanted of his time to my life. The time in la. Yeah why do you think because. La is limited the at limitless access. You know it's a lot and when your whole family is out there you know it's just a lot. There's a lot going on and it's like life by appointments like a different life style. You know in what. We were accustomed to growing up. And you know you just want your kids to understand that life is not like that outside of los angeles city limits you know. Would you say miami is closer to your experiences growing up. Yeah it's much more like reality. I think anything outside of los angeles born near you know as very different thing. It's just a different amazing. Different world feels like people go there to work and they ll. They live on the side but they're they're basically work. I guess pretty much anywhere else you live and you go to work when you go to work but when you're not going to work you live in. La is kinda like work. yes. I agree with that. Yeah tell me about growing up in virginia a little bit. I know very little about virginia Virginia's the difference is a different pace. It's like you know normal town. Usa it's humid which i appreciate Creatively it's like it's in the air. It just was a is. It can just be slow at times. It is you know one of the first. It's the one of the first thirteen states so it has a lot of that residual energy there. Virginia is very parallel in my mind. Conceptually to america. I love it because of its progression. But i'm in love with it because of its untapped potential being said there's a whole lot of you know heaviness to come with it but from the heaviness can. That's where the great things can blossom with the year as how we may grinded. That's how we made a lot of songs who's set pressured at stairs there at precious really. Did you know the law really comes down on black people differently. It really does you know would the the plight of the african american and african diaspora in virginia is a lot heavier the gravity on us. You know tune three times more heavier we listen to grinded. Yeah go with that stewart. Feel like today you really fun to listen to a bunch of records humane and just see what listening to them brings up. Be here recoup. Yeah zones described the room that you made that record in may. I was in chad and chas room. He had just bought a house and You know found no sounds on the triton and while it sounds together now just at the time it was just like a bunch of like african sounds and it just felt prime you know just all sounds fell primeau in the sounds just felt like we felt like the last laugh of the enslaved spirit and while it was not the last laugh. It just makes us all feel that way. We knew that that was something that could only have come from us and it connected to us all on a primal level you know. So why was hustlers industry. You know doing doing illegal things but trying to survive the best way today felt like they could and while we were as as kids we wear inspired by that attitude again may not have been the most healthiest attitude but we inspired by winds spider. I them grabbing abo-about by the horns and sorta just like taking themselves on all right. I don't know we were trying to reverse engineer that notion of just like controlling your own destiny even if it wasn't even a right necessarily the right direction. Best song was kind of like the soundtrack.

She lives in one of God's gifts to photographers Ireland and his doing work that when it goes by on my screen is immediately arresting immediately compelling and someone that I've wanted to meet and talk to about her work for some time now Sharon, how are you today? I'm really good Scott. How are you? I am wonderful. I have to ask because I'm just completely jealous. How is Ireland? What does Ireland look like today? Well, Ireland Spain Four Seasons in one day. I suppose as it is most often. It's a very wet and windy but lots of sunshine in between. Oh man. I've Had The Good Fortune to be there a couple of times and every single bit of it from you know the song Inner City to the the countryside is from a photographer's point of view. I think really compelling you are doing work that is not like the work a lot of people on the commission are doing and work that when it goes by as I said really does cost me to stop and look and you're calling it fine art floral photography. That's not all you do. You do landscaping do portraits that this is all on your website for those of you that are that enjoy looking at websites during these conversations. Her website is s Williams images.com s w i l l i a m s i m a g e s. Tell me how you got started in photography. Did you remember your first camera? Do you remember when you first start thinking of yourself as a photographer? Yes. Well, that's not that long ago and my husband bought me a Camera DSLR nickel and for Christmas one year. It's probably dead. 2014 and and then a couple of months later. I'm thrilled cuz I had an idea that I would like to take photographs and a few months later wage. I work in the local hospice and we were looking at maybe doing a calendar for the first year as a fundraiser, cuz I had me brand new camera. I was nominated as a photographer. So there's no pressure. So it was the best thing ready cuz it really focused my attention on what I was doing and I said about we change the the Hospice and and dairy here boy hospice is set an amazing Grimes. We it's it's on the banks of the river Foyle and it has sneezing Gardens that I've been a script and maintained by volunteers over thirty years. And so that's where I immediately Drew my inspiration from the calendar and the calendar worked out really well. So I was inspired to sort of keep going. And did you have any training at all or was it just you know work yourself off of automatic as as gradually as you could chuck. Yeah. Well, my dad does spend to stay away from automatic and go straight into Nigel. So that's what I've always done. I never use automatic. In fact, if I do I get confused. I like the absolute control over what I'm doing but in the September of the following year, I did take a short course in the local College here and the city and Guilds of course and which really introduced me to page, you know, hire a camera works and and introduced me to a new community of people as well which and it was amazing. And then after that I took another course and it was at that point. I had started really experimenting with this and came across this sort of like pad photography, but I have to say I was always fairly experimental because off The rules were a bit too fast and maybe a bit too rigid for me. So I had always sort of my first delved into like an intentional camera moves. I see em work. Yep. And I love that. I just love the movement you could get from that. And from there. I started working in Photoshop bringing like the Box focused into the ICM work and blend on the two together so very abstract and but seemed to go down well with you know, some people that aren't really appreciated it so long I kept going.

"This is a three CR podcast and this is published or not. Some of my reading friends, Jad Marian Jenny. Told me about a book that they thought was the best book they've read all Ya that book is the dictionary of lost words. So these no David this morning, it's just me and a long chat with author PIP Williams. What happened a hundred years ago we know that the Spanish flu around, but they were other world events and would happenings as well. Bit Williams has written about some of these in the dictionary of lost words while compared dance. Lobley. Today here let's start with the woods I take the convenience of having a dictionary for granted. Just. Briefly, what's the history of the Oxford English dictionary will unlike Eugen I took it for granted turn and I didn't really know that much difference between dictionaries but there is in fact, and the Oxford English dictionary is unique because it's a history of words It doesn't just tell us what the words are that we use an provide a definition. It tells us how a word has been used back through the centuries back through history. So back in the eighteen, fifty s a group of men from the Phil Logical Society of London decided that they needed a new English dictionary needed to improve on Johnson's dictionary, which was a little bit quickey. Although very popular, and so they set about to define every single word in the English language including woods that would no longer. In Common News and I didn't just want to define them, they want to understand how those words been used throughout history. So from the very first time they were written down. Way! To! Talk James Murray Gate this woods for. James Murray in fact was the second editor at the first editor really didn't get stuck into it, and so I replaced him with James Murray in eighteen seventy, which is when it really got started and most of the woods on a lot of words did come from Johnson's dictionary and I double checked them and corrected some of the Ariza mistakes. Occasionally, Johnson just made up definitions if he wasn't sure. Where where did come from but basically, a lot of the words came from volunteers. So James Murray I think was one of the first people to use crowdsourcing as a way of completing this really enormous project, and so he did a call out to the general public through magazines and periodical and asked them to send in examples of how words used in any book that could get their hands on really occasionally, he would publish list of words that he wanted definitions for examples of sentences have been used in sentences other times people just sent in interesting words middle site, very mundane woods, which was very important. Some and Winchester has written a book about the collection of words the surgeon of Krathong which you actually talk about and there was one chat William Chistopher minor a millionaire American civil war surgeon turned lunatic imprisoned in. Broadmoor asylum. He had time on his hands and he did a lot of collecting s Jude Agent Thompson. Yes. Now that's actually where my idea came from to start writing this novel I. Read the session of Christ phone, which I absolutely loved. It's a very pithy book very interesting nonfiction. A camp has he said, and what I blamed from that was not just something about the relationship between James Murray, the editor and one of the volunteers..
"williams" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"This is Kelly and I'm speaking today with Kathleen Williams who is running for Congress in the at large district in Montana. I Kathleen. Kelly grigsby with you. Yes a great to talk to you. I was really rooting you on in twenty eighteen and you came so close to winning and I think twenty twenty. You're really GONNA get it over the finish line here. So tell me a little bit about your background and while you're running for Congress. So I a three term state legislator I've got a thirty seven year career in Natural Resources Conservation my specialty has been in water, which means that I've spent a really long time bringing really diverse people together on issues that that cut very deeply into culture in economics and. Family and heritage and really finding win win win solutions and that's great background for my legislative work at and also I think for Congress and personally I'm the daughter of a World War Two veteran and my mother was from Blue Jacket Oklahoma, she left there at age eighteen to go west to work in the Navy shipyard sin. and. My upbringing has been about her was about Hard work and making your own way and. And so I've I've to reflect those values in my life in and I. Think I think they've served me well as I built my career and am now turning to seeing if I could be helpful in Congress. So the reason I'm running is Because I think. I think Montana's. Our desire. and. Deserve a true independent Voice Congress. I. Think True Representation is is few and far between it's it's rooted in. Montana's hope struggles and dreams and and someone that will put the hyper partisanship aside and work with people of all political stripes on solutions for Montana and and the country and not not be beholden to special interests. So. It's about results and not playing politics. So I think you're starting to get at the answer to this question, but I find Montana's such an interesting state. Think people think of Montana as a very red republican state, but Montana has a history. Of. has a has a history of supporting Democrats. There's a Democratic senator right now there have been democratic governors. So how you make sure that you are connecting with the people of Montana an hearing what it is that they care about in a place that may be as in so defined by party lines. Montana for many reasons is known as the last best place. Frankly I. Think it's also one of the last best places for politics. I don't know if I'd be in politics if it weren't in Montana. Because people still vote for the person here they vote for someone who they identify with who they think represents values and they don't hours vote straight party line. So they they are notorious ticket splitters and one of the examples of that is in two thousand sixteen when trump won this state by twenty points, we also elected a democratic governor we we have a democratic senior senator. And one of the other aspects about Montana the Montana elected the first. Female member of any LEGIS national legislating body in the entire world in nineteen. Before women. Broadly had even could vote so. So, Montana's a pretty incredible place for lots of reasons. A lot of it is is that the politics are about their about real sayings, not just partisanship and party lines and and partisan game. So so that that's I think part of what makes Montana different and and they're proud I think proud of being ticket splitters and and they've got a strategy in mind when they voted I know I'm one of them so it's it's a great place to run. So we knew something about what the issues are. That are important nationally. But what are the issues that are really driving the people of Montana right now so I've built my platform from listening to Montanes could seventy five thousand miles on my car between the last campaign and when the pandemic took off traveling every corner of of this one, hundred, forty, seven, thousand, square mile stage and what they're telling me. Is that number one a they wanna fix to this patchwork of in healthcare system. We've got it's it's too expensive. It doesn't work hits you complicated they. They also want to make sure that everyone has opportunity to craft and pursue their own American dream, and and then also the third big priority that Montana's tell me is ensuring that we protect our incredible outdoor heritage chart are clean air and water public lands. That is it cuts to the core of Montana's is our ability to get outside and enjoy what makes Montana Montana. So I imagine, Montana's an interesting place to campaign anyway being such an enormous state and the Congressional district taking up the entire state but then. Campaigning right now during a pandemic is is even a different thing altogether. So what what does that look like right now how is campaigning in two thousand and twenty different for you than competing in two thousand eighteen Two thousand eighteen we throughout the playbook that that encourages people to refer candidates to focus on the the big seven, meaning our our our our muster urban areas, and and I just got in my truck camper with my dog and and a staffer, and we drove all over Montana and and talk to people in their communities over. Over their kitchen tables or in their local cafes about what was important to them and and with seventy five thousand miles again on. On the vehicles between that campaign and the beginning of this one. So. So that's how you campaign. It's very different. Now, we're doing a lot of the same things we did last time. So we're being very strategic on social media, and of course, doing television and radio ads and mail and all the normal parts of the campaign. But the real thing that's different is is my inability to get out physically to tack to Montana, and so I am making a lot of phone calls and I'm calling people and asking them what they care about in how I can be helpful and so luckily, we did that traveling in the past because people remember that they're like, Oh yeah. She's the one that will talk to anyone and that that reputation. Persists and precedes me and and and I think I. Think we built a great foundation that we're? That we're sprinting from now and and it's going to serve. US Well. You mentioned healthcare is an important issue. Healthcare was already a very important issue in twenty eighteen. But now in the midst of the pandemic is increasingly important. What are some things that you would like to see Congress doing to improve healthcare in this country? So I mean I just have to start out by saying everyone deserves access to quality affordable healthcare we've. We've been saying that for for years now, and we've got to get there as a country and healthcare. The healthcare issue is is personal for me. When I was eleven, my mother started to lose your memory in turned out that that was early onset Alzheimer's and and my dad, and I became her caregivers for eight years until she passed away and so. I know when a healthcare crisis can do to a family and hand it's tough. So I've worked on healthcare issues. In, the legislature despite having a career in natural resources healthcare was one of my priorities and the economy was where my priorities in the in the legislature because that's what people were telling me. They needed so. So I. AM proud to have advanced and pass legislation that that saving lives that's that's increasing that access and affordability of healthcare. So, we we need a leader that can do that in Congress and has a history of doing that. Now..

"Did John Get true stay German jail forever. Is He dead? No, and no, although both would have been better alternatives to the reality of what became John. John was sentenced to ten years. which was the maximum for the charges he was facing. But since he was an alien in Germany and also considered a juvenile under their law. The court said that John may be released on parole after only two years. And after this pathetic excuse for a sentence was handed down, John addressed the court, he said quote I deeply sorry for parents and if I could do something to bring her back I would. John was released from that German prison after serving only two years two years for admitting to raping and killing a fifteen year old girl. And there's no denying that there are problems with how the military handles not only murder, but sexual assaults, and how Margaret's murder was handled is perhaps not that different than how it would be handled today. Just look at the numbers. The Department of Defense doesn't keep any kind of military sex offender registry that could potentially alert soldiers and commanders let alone law enforcement to the presence of military sexual predators and this is. Bananas. Why wouldn't they keep track of this? What the excuse possibly be! One, two, thousand and fifteen, the Department of Defense amended their protocols, and they started submitting names of convicted offenders to the national sex offender registry and the national sex offender public website, but very few names are making their way on this list. According to a two thousand nine hundred times, article reported the following. According to the latest figures there were about six thousand restrictor reports of sexual assault in the military in two thousand and nineteen. But only about three hundred cases have been prosecuted. And keep in mind that it's likely that only fifty percent of sexual assaults are reported in the military and the main reason people give for the reason why they don't report them is retribution. One thing I did see is that there's an estimated that twenty five percent of women in the military are sexually assaulted. Read one one in sixteen. One in sixteen and I just subscribed the New York Times in paid. To get past their pay wall while researching for this, but they were saying one in sixteen. Because the military is only twenty percent women essentially, but makes up ninety percent of the sexual assaults, of course, so the fact that there are so few women in the percentages are so high. That's what they can deduce based on the data, and they pull one hundred thousand. Military soldiers yeah, no, it's a huge problem and clearly it. It was a problem in nineteen sixty three. It's a problem now so obviously in the military there is this culture that thrives on silence, and it's a culture that skill that sweeping things under the and allowing potentially violent criminals, the opportunity to continue to rape and potentially escalate to more. I knew John was dark i. knew that he literally person is piercing eyes choose is. We're like black kind of like on those kind of is. But scared of him I don't know. Not a bit, but I should get. And Barbour just said rings true. She wasn't scared of John Hell No, but she should have been because unfortunately, Margaret's life would not be the last one John Jetro would take. Much like how thoughts of John, true became less and less prevalent and Barbara's mind, he slipped back into the US quietly with the murder he committed having happened overseas. He could really just fly under the radar, and his parents never shared what their son had done. And the military for the most part swept this whole thing or right under the rug, and he lived in relative obscurity, and that was until two thousand and seventeen. It wasn't until the massive search for the Golden State killer. That John Gets route became a blip on law enforcement radar. Margaret Williams had a little brother named heaven, and he's seven and a half years old when his sister was killed by John Catcher. Eventually Margaret's family moved back to the states to be stationed at a US base. Evan grew up. It became a pastor working in the church just like his father had. And of course, even though Evan was young when his sister was murdered, that's not something that leaves your mind. So all of these years later now when the FBI announced this revived effort to catch and capture the Golden State Killer Evan heard about that, and he started doing some research, and he found the John Get, through was living in northern California Wall. The golden state killer was active in northern California. Effort said I. Don't know this guy. Is Golden. State's Miller. He made up. You may think on crazy, but there is a man killed by. When he was eighteen and he lives in that area, so he was thinking that the Golden State Seller. Might Dijon get some of the dates was so similar to win John? Had Been in California had done some research. You've got to trace this man's DNA, and they said we can't just go. Jet Is DNA. We don't have any and how we match it in. And then they did that genealogy, and found a cousin back in Ohio, and you know I. Guess You know how they match the different things on the DNA and found a match. Ben Eight started looking at all the jets cruise. Can refined any of the countries, and then they found. Oh, there is one he is in Palo Alto. And so then they make the connections we have to take the detective department to. He knows some police departments they go. We don't care. That was years ago. So when the police started researching it and found out that he was you know the security guard at Stanford and other stuff. Then they found out. No, it's not the Golden State. Killer! This Guy Mike's show some. So as we now, John Gastro is not the golden state killer but John. And Joseph Dangelo are very much connected. They're part of the same club. Both in their seventies both living in northern California both serial offenders who long thought they had gotten away with their crimes in both were caught as a result of genetic genealogy. So John Guttridge DNA was found on the murder remains a twenty one year old Leslie Murli Perlov and she was killed in nineteen, seventy, three. His DNA was also found on the body of twenty one year old Jenny Ann, Taylor who was killed in nineteen, seventy, four, both women were murdered near Stanford University. And these are just cases that we know about so far. Law enforcement officers are working to piece together a timeline of his life, but here's what we do know. John Ultimately became a father. He became a husband three times over, and he held on multiple jobs without really drawing any attention while he was living this double life as.

"Army, BRATS! You've heard the term. Children with one or both parents serving full time in the military. The age of the phenomenon has meant military brats have also been described by number of researchers as one of America's oldest yet least while known in largely invisible subcultures. The military brought lifestyle typically involves moving to a new state or to new country many many times over wall, growing up other shaping forces or rather implications of this lifestyle include a culture of resilience and adaptability, constant loss of friendship ties. Parents that are literally and figuratively militant in their parenting style, and of course never ever having hometown or roots anywhere. It can be extremely difficult to track military brats down or find out where they've lived where they've been where they ended up what they ended up doing. And for this reason, the military brought lifestyle really is the perfect foundation for someone who really really doesn't want to be found. So today's case takes us back to June eighth of nineteen, sixty three and a lot was happening this week. The song topping the charts was it's my party Lesley Gore and the movie. Playing in theaters was Cleopatra starring Elizabeth, Taylor and Richard Burton. Also Johnny Depp was born, and the rolling stones first single come on was released in the UK. The president of the US JFK assigned the equal pay act of nineteen, sixty, three into law, and he also suspended nuclear testing to work towards a nuclear test ban treaty. The setting for today's case is a city in Germany called bad crasner. Also known as PK. Since its earliest recorded history K. has had a legacy of military influence. It was badly damaged by number of air raids during the last months of World War Two. And following the war I French and the American forces have been continually based in the city the Base K. it was home to thousands of military men, women and children of Army brats with spending her high school years on the base was our first degree Barbara. Station that Italy at one time Germany and Japan and Alaska back when it while out of state, and you learn when you move like every year to two years, you have to get to know people. Just because know, I could come home tomorrow. My Dancers August what? We're being transferred to Timbuktu so when I got to Germany. You couldn't agree. Only had four hundred people in the high school, and that was seventy and eighth grade plus ICICLES. We went back to Germany. In the family. I dad asked stationed in vodka. It's not and that's a beautiful town on the river, not far on Frankfort. and. You know in the military back then you moved almost every year it was it was hard. It was hard, so we got there when I was in eighth grade. Everybody knows everybody's business. All the kids all the kids, but my dad. Was Real. Hit ended. My Dad was over there. Before, so yeah I mean. Everybody knew what everybody else was doing. Nobody had telephones though Germany didn't have phones fact that only a few people had a telephone that they could really use. Because this was sixty three. You know the war, only oser serve lines fifteen years or so. So Barbara a very tight group of girlfriends on the base in one of these friends was named Margaret. Williams Margaret was the. Daughter of Lieutenant Colonel Robert Williams of Clarksville Tennessee and he was also an army chaplain and Protestant minister. I've probably veteran eighth grade. I didn't become friends with her. Until Ninth Grade she was quiet, shy naive. She just. She had no grace's about her. As far as dealing with people and my heart always out that students that didn't in or you know I will get to know him because I was a big mouth everybody. And I just befriended hair. She was a Swedish she could be. The children of the soldiers stationed at the base attended the PK. American highschool. Spring. School started freshman year. Classes, if you WANNA freshman, everybody had same classes together. All this aim teachers. We would hang together. Need lunch. We had a building that was turned into a club for it was open every day. So that's where you went to hang out if you weren't at home. That's where we hung out. It was a snack bar there you could actually get American hamburgers. 'cause you didn't get. They had no Donald's back then they had no juggling fried chicken, no American food at all, except for the base, cafeteria or team. So that was our hang up. And even though Barbara Margaret and all the other kids were living in Germany on a base, they were still engaging in those quintessential high school experiences, and this included high school dances, and these were all held at the basis quote, Unquote Teen Club, and one of these dances was held on June eighth of nineteen, sixty three, and this was a Saturday night. When I tell you this story you're gonNA. Stay Bar. You're making this up just for the podcast. No, I'm not. You can talk to my sister. My sister in law. You can talk to Lynch. Schneider. There's a group of us. They still know each other this. This is what. This is card one I. Think campus in my mind all these years. So Margaret playing. Shea has curly hair, but she doesn't fix it. She doesn't wear makeup, but I didn't. either. I mean we fifteen, but she was very plain. She wouldn't wear any clothing. That was the least bit suggestive and I think that's because her bed was minister in probably during Picky she was plain Jane and because she was quiet and so timid, you could be in a room with three people and nobody even noticed her and I. You know that's kind of sad. And I can't tell you why this particular dance we decided to do this. County Clark was one of my best friends. Loretta Harlow was one of my best friends who randy marrying my brother. She's now my sister-in-law. And I decided that we were gonNA stick Margaret up for the dance it. They said it was a church dance. No, it wasn't. It was the end of the School Year Dance Team Club. There was one every year. It was a dancer I swear at least once a month.

I have done that and I wanted to do more of that in. For this, do you? Do you write the songs and then get him studio? Think I know it makes sense.

You know like a briefcase. Full of songs that are half managed or Titles or songs ideas for songs, and we asked an ongoing thing, and but I'm not disciplined. Were I'll sit down on days.

Spontaneous win and we were in between tours didn't have that much time. We look two days in between wrongs and. We went in and started putting a couple of things down and. Right off the bat. We knew you know with their. We got something here. You know and somehow rages. I mean he just tuned. Right in to you know the sound everything is I guess as a combination of rage expertise the acoustics in the studio. You now literally no! One point I asked Tom said. You know just. Hypothetically what would happen if we took ray and went to different studio, you know when we get this I've sound and and one point. Tom said I don't think. It's just all those things you know half. At the same time to make it work, and do you think it's a sound that just suits these songs? Yeah, that's the thing and we cut some other ones, too, but it became angered. At a certain point, there's a certain sound here in these songs are working really well. You know it's starting to come into play like. A lot of people have talked about the sound of the record, but to me. What was really a shift few was? A lot of the language in the record And I think most people when they think of you. Think of you vary rocketed language, and not just visual images you know us. Car Wheels on a gravel road. Made one of my favorite lines of years, which is handy, blankets cover lonely girl.

And if you lose that you're nothing from media. You don't ever lose that because it keeps you alive? That's my only love crazy Robin Williams from his uproar you stand up comedy to his serious turns in dramas, like goodwill, hunting and dead poet's society. Robin Williams, always seemed to be larger than life. He was a figure everyone in America knew and loved. But did anyone truly knowing could anyone even his family, friends or doctors understand the workings of his rapid fire mind who was the real man behind the pop. Culture legend. Hi, I'm Vanessa Richard Simmons Carter ROY welcome to historical figures on the par cast network every other Wednesday, we discuss different persons lasting historical impact, unique personality and impression on the world around them are audio biographies cover big lives, but we like to focus on little known facts today, we're discussing legendary comedian, Robin Williams if you wanna listen to any previous episodes, you can find them and all of park has shows on your favorite podcast directory. A lot of you ask how to help the show. Well, if you enjoy the podcast the best way to help is to leave us a five star review and now back to the life of Robin Williams. From MRs Doubtfire to hook to his beloved performance as the genie in Disney's Aladdin, Robin Williams. Iconic acting roles helped shape the childhood of millions of millennials to their parents Williams was the bold and out of control stand up who got his start as an odd alien on the television, sitcom Mork and Mindy still many others. I witness the strength of Williams acting in his breakthrough dramatic performance in good morning. Vietnam, though, how each person I saw Robin Williams perform may be different. There was one universal constant that anyone could agree on. He was a one of a kind talent. But dig a little deeper and you'll see that though he was the man who made the world laugh. He was also a man who struggled with hardship addiction and depression on the complexity in contradiction of his personality is perhaps why Robin Williams was able to capture the. Hearts in a magic nation of so many people with his talents. He was in every man who grew up with tremendous, wealth and privilege. He was a comedian who made others laugh while dealing with his own darkness. He was an actor whose roles inspired others to be better while his own struggles with addiction made his personal life worse in his last years Williams secretly suffered from a debilitating disease and in two thousand fourteen committed suicide at the age of sixty three but before tragedy put an end to his life, Robin Williams brought so much joy to the world. Robin Williams was born in Chicago on July twenty first nineteen fifty one his father Robert was an executive for the Ford Motor Company and his mother Lori was a model Williams had two half brothers. But they were much older than him. And he was raised essentially as an only child with two successful working. Parents. The young Robin lead a lonely early childhood in suburban lake forest, Illinois, according to Williams, he was raised in a family were an ideal child was seen and not heard he described his father as classy and ethical but stern yet despite that serious background. It was during his early childhood that his comedic talents began to emerge. Williams started being funny in an attempt to capture his mother's attention. He would do anything to get a laugh out of her, and he usually succeeded, but still the comedian later characterized these years as lonely life felt a whole lot loan. Earlier in nineteen sixty three when the Williams family moved from the Chicago suburbs into a giant forty room mansion outside of Detroit. It was in that giant empty house where he learned to play with himself. You mean by himself? Don't censor the messenger Vanessa with no other children around Williams had to play with his toy soldiers alone. And he took on every role. He staged an acronym. Stick battles between Indians, and Nazis or Cowboys and fighter pilots giving them all different voices and characters every scene was like a one man improv show for the rest of his life. This time in his childhood remained, incredibly important to Williams even as an adult. He kept his childhood toy collection stashed away in his home hidden behind a wall panel in what he called his secret room while Williams early childhood antics were reserved for the attic and his mother when he entered high school, his charisma and energy. Captivated his fellow classmates in nineteen sixty seven when Williams was sixteen his father retired early and move the family across the country to Tiburon, California, a wealthy town just outside San Francisco spending his teen years near San Francisco during the late sixties had a tremendous impact on Williams during the sixties a quiet and relatively cheap neighborhood in the city around. The intersection of Haight street and Ashbury street underwent a massive transformation on this area became the legendary Haight Ashbury district, the birthplace of the hippie counterculture movement. Strangers. It sounds to understand the direction that Robin Williams. Life took it's important to understand the hippies in response to the strict norms and expectations of the laced nineteen fifties. Many young people set out to differentiate themselves from the pro capitalist ideals of their parents generation, they set out to forge a brand new path that encourage free thought in new ideas, this counterculture movement started with the beat generation. The beats were group of writers and artists centered in New York City in the nineteen fifties. They rejected
"williams" Discussed on The Good News Podcast
"The. I'm calling your host of the good news podcast and I'm Neil, the other host. The good news podcast is your source for good news, fun stories, auditory delight and sonic joy. We're bringing all of this goodness to you from the cards against humanity studios in Chicago. So on today's episode, I'm gonna share something I read that was pretty inspirational and opening from athlete, Serena Williams. An Instagram post. She wrote last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I was just in a funk, mostly. I felt like I was not a good mom. I read several articles that said, postpartum motions can last up to three years if not dealt with. I like communication best talking things through with my mom sisters, my friends that let me know. My feelings aren't totally normal. It's totally normal to feel like I'm not enough for my baby. We have all been there. I work a lot. I train and I'm trying to be the best athlete I can be. However, this means, although I have been with her every everyday for life, I'm not around as much as I'd like to be most of you. Moms can deal with the same thing, whether you're staying home or working finding that balance with kids as a true art. You are the true heroes. I'm here say if you're having a rough day or breath week, it's okay. I am too. There's always tomorrow. Nice. Yeah, I loved to this post because Serena Williams, somebody who as a compost so much. She's a new mom and she's like, acknowledging the fact that it's hard for everybody and I'm a mom too. Like I think we've talked about and it is hard. It's hard to balance everything and feel like you're doing a right job, but it's really nice that people are publicly acknowledging it's it's tough business in this idea of like you can have it all, and everything's great. Like that's not real. Yeah. And talking about it is critical. I think she's right that communication is key to that. I feel like so an I am a straight white man, so I don't. I don't get to have a strong opinion on this, but I do fully and consistently acknowledged that anything that is related to women as always put on the backburner. So so when my daughter was born, when I was pregnant with my daughter, I'm somebody who is like kind of wound. A little anxious. So I was just convinced I was going to have postpartum convinced. I was like, this is going to happen. I need to prepare. I I know I'm going to go down some very dark rabbit hole. So one of the things that we did was my husband and I met with the doctor and the doctor gave him like really concrete list of things to look out for because like when you're in the midst of all that you, you don't, you're not a good judge of character of yourself. So I was really relying on the people around me to be like, all right calling like, you're not right. We need to deal with this. So I think that's also really empowering to say, if you acknowledge like, okay, this might be a problem, and then you have you create a community around you that can help you identify when things are going left, then you can sort of deal with it quicker and it makes it. So it's not so horrible for you. Listening. Good news. Awesome. For maybe wanna tell us a joke or idea. That's amazing.
