"Thank you so very much. Oh, it's been a pleasure to be here. After her death last week, Aaron Wright's son Ben tweeted this. She was never much for thoughts and prayers, but you can honor her memory by loving one another and by fighting like hell. You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. Let's take a few minutes to celebrate a little guy in Cincinnati. He's one month old, goes by Fritz and weighs around 170 pounds. Baby hippo Fritz joins his family at the Cincinnati zoo, mom BB that Tucker and sister Fiona who won hearts after being born a preemie a few years back. ZooKeeper Jenna wingate is part of the team that cares for Fritz and she's here to tell us all about them. I'm very excited. Hi, Jenna. Hi, thanks for having me. So tell us about Fritz. What's he doing at this stage? Yeah, he is growing really quickly gaining anywhere from two to four pounds a day, so he's already doubled his birth weight. He's actually getting really brave and starting to wander off and he's coming up to the window just like his big famous sister Fiona does and interacting with the people that come to visit us. So he's been growing really quickly. It's really healthy and a lot of fun. So do baby hippos do they spend a lot of time with their mothers or are they like, you know, attached to them like, you know, at the hip figuratively? Yes, definitely. So I was actually saying he's like Velcro to her. So his nose is almost always touching a part of one of her rear legs if they're walking. And otherwise, if they're in the water, he's typically right next to her, but like I said, he is starting to venture off a little bit, but he never gets too far and he follows her wherever she goes. So I thought that hippos swim, but I have heard that hippos do not swim, was Fritz born no one had to do whatever it is that hippos doing the water. So it's funny because there is a little bit of a debate. But hippos technically do not swim. They actually push off the bottom. Hippopotamus means river horse. So they'll actually walk along the bottom of the rivers. It's the mother's job as a hippo to help this calf come to the surface if they aren't in a shallow enough area. So one of the things that we were a little bit worried about was the fact that Fritz was born on land. And then he went into the water, so we were nervous when he was actually going in there, even though they're typically born in water. But Fritz came out into our big outdoor pool, which is about 9 or ten feet deep in the middle and he was able when he was just a few weeks old to push off from the very bottom and get to the top, take a quick breath and then go back down. But if you were to put them in like a 40 foot pool and they couldn't push all the way to the surface, they would not be able to get a breath. So we say they can't swim, right? They can't swim themselves to the surface. Okay, and I did not know that. And they can join you paddle a little bit, but yeah. How do you introduce a hippo to its family? And then I also want to share that I found out that a group of hippos is called a bloat. Is that true? That's correct. So how do you introduce a baby hippo to a bloat? So that's a good question. And it's definitely something that we've been trying to handle delicately and allowing BB to have her space, but also we do want them to be all together as a blow of four here soon. So what we did was we gave BB about two weeks on her own. That's what they would do in the wild. They would leave the bloats that they live in, and kind of seclude themselves into a shallow, safe area, and then spend about two weeks after the baby is born bonding. And then slowly we started having Fiona kind of go what we call nose to nose with BB and Fritz. And we allowed them to have just a gate between them. And so Fritz would walk up to Fiona in the very first time BB kind of stopped him and was like, no, I'm not ready for this. And Fiona backed off. And we were just taking it slowly doing a couple hours each day. It's taking a little bit of time, but we just want to make sure whatever they

"But the here's where here's where the tender land came from. It's another story that. I have wanted to write for a long time when i was eleven years old. That would have been in the fifth grade toward the end of that year. Our teacher read the class. The adventures of tom sawyer should do to buy greeting half an hour after lunch every day. I loved that book. Here was this kid. He was just like me and he was out there on. The mississippi river having is really great adventures. And after that of course i had to read adventures of huckleberry finn which i loved even more and so across my entire career as a writer. I have wanted someday to write a novel that would pay homage to mark twain. That might be in. Its own way. An updated version of huckleberry finn in. That's where this tender land came from and it was the success of ordinary grace. Really both the critical monitors successive ordinary grace. That allowed me to launch into that particular project because prior to ordinary grace by publisher really only wanted corporal connor novels from me so that ordinary broke me out. I have extended my reach with this gender landon. I'm at work on a third standalone. That be a companion novel to both ordinary grace and this gender land great also. It's probably no coincidence. That you spent many is working and research development that so you've got the academic strand alongside your personal experience. I guess that has also helped feed into your understanding of what is going on with these characters has other driving forces like us in the works that i create with children is my understanding. That children are incredibly resilient if you look at the four vagabonds at the heart of this tender land. They have all undergone incredible trauma incredible loss and yet they're able to rebound and build a family centered around the the forum and together using all of their resources and their love for one. Another make an epic journey in the summer. Nineteen thirty two. Yeah yeah the turning to your own reading because we're starting to come to the end of our time together. We like to ask people about their reading and ask for the recommendations books that they think listeners might like to read themselves so tell us a little bit about your reading and had you been binge reader as such. I am typically not a binge reader. I pick and choose dabbled here i dabble there. I have to be honest with you so much my reading these days or what's called. Ar sees advanced readers copies or bound. Galleys and these are books that won't be available to readers For a very long time. I've been asked to read them with an eye to offer us jacket quote readers listeners. I'm sure are familiar with that quote that goes across. The you know the top of every book. Stephen king says this is the best thing since sliced bread or the bible. So a lot of my reading is done for that but i also lead a book group for my Church and doing good reading. But when i'm able to pick those books that i would like to read for pleasure very often pick books that are similar to what i write and very often said in the mid west or the set set a heartland of the country. My most most recent read for me that Mice socks off was a book. Written by kristin hannah called the four winds which like this tender land is set during the great depression that was set in the dust bowl area of the united states. And she's just so beautiful in her evocation of the The incredible hardships that the dust bowl years in the depression forced on those people. Another book that. I had to recommend for anybody who's read this tender land and enjoyed. It would be a book called before we were yours. By lisa wingate also set during the great depression and based on the tragic tragic real situation in which children essentially stolen from their families and adopted two very wealthy families. So those are some of my recommendations but we're more recommendation for binge breeding. I do have an author. That when i discovered i read everything by a guy named frederick bachmann readers might be familiar with a man called ov- Every book that i've read by bachman just been a delight. His is such a compassionate human being with a wonderful sense of humor. It's great we mentioned that you quite a long time. I think probably a good many years.

I was a little behind deadline. And you know if you're right longhand you have to transcribe to a computer or processing some kind and that takes time and i thought you know if i could write directly to the computer. Maybe i can meet deadline. And so i was scary proposition because writing with my pen. Notebook was part of the magic of the creation. And i didn't wanna monkey with the magic. But i I tried the deriding directly to the keyboard. What do you know it works. I think it's remarkable that you right wrote eight books it longhand. Actually you know.

The future that Seems to be more and more dire with every passing day and yet gather is a little twinkle open there because i mean i'm a student of history i did. My undergraduate degree in classical studies focused a lot on roman history and at the time the roman empire fell in a lot of ways it would have felt like the end of the world.

Whether we pull out of thessalonica we don't make and We've we've been through existential crises for never quite at this level but maybe it's a certain level of species narcissism if that makes sense where it's just hard to imagine a world where humans aren't here though in some ways might be better if we weren't For for the rest of the animals around. I don't know it's it's hard for me to not Not be helpful. And i guess that comes back to star trek as well. I mean even in that world world war three. Wipe out a third of the Population and then. Maybe we should do things differently. Yeah i guess there's there's a lot of dire there's there's there are reasons to be scared. Are reasons to feel like this is a very heavy very dire time. But i don't know it's it ain't over till it's over i guess yeah i mean i think you you're absolutely right and and there's some tension in what you said right where it's like yes. Humans have been come incredibly problematic on this planet however indigenous peoples are not responsible for that and actually the vast majority of us aren't writing. Is these billionaires who have corrupted and undermined the structures of our societies even the ones that have been fucked up since the beginning right the us. We're fucked we. We were founded on. Fuck nece like until we really change some things. Massively things will continue to some degree as they are. But i really think that tension is in your story because even the defiant act of the protagonists which again i'm not going to give away is is an act of hope. Because you know. Hopelessness leads us to inaction not to action. And so i think that's that's something really powerful in that story and i think in in all of these stories like even satan. Resigning is like an amazing action railing. Satan is doing something and and in the process holding up a mirror tall us so i you know what thank you. So much for. This truly remarkable conversation.

"Why not this. Why not this particular Setup for story white not this particular character in the story why not be stakes in the story Because rules made to be broken. And there's something to to break it down to one simple thing. I remember reading a quote that said Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind. And there's no reason why all these things can't coexist and we can't sort of build worlds from our own imagination and provoke thought in the reader and generate interest in the reader and generate a sort of the fervor for for new stories that Rather than ask why. Ask why not and i think that's the the main reason why i personally have become invested in writing This kind of Kind of gina. Wow that's that's beautiful. I'm so inspired. So when do you think that they can you think about kia. Was that that moment. Was there a definitive moment. When the why not became. How your storytelling evolved. When i ever. Since i was a little boy my everyone around me is always referred to me as e centric ever. Since i was a little boy. I m fortunately had people in my family my my particular women in my family who always encouraged me that no matter what anyone told me i can do whatever i want to and that gave me maybe a little bit of a chip on my shoulder despite the fact that i would be oftentimes in a confrontation with people in authority particularly teachers. Who would tell me no. You can't do that. And i would say to I have every right to Proven wrong and i fake to route my my public school education even through Undergrad and graduate school and always been sort of the same story over and over again and it wasn't until i heard people echo the same sentiments about maybe eighteen or nineteen where i finally allowed myself to. Just go with it. It just just no longer. Even find myself from coming into those kinds of conversations with people don't care Rather than investing in the people who don't care invest in my own sort of self worth my own desire to really really really asked these questions why not around eighteen or nineteen But up until that point it was it was like i was going to war on on a regular basis in school writing Trying to get published or just in general asking questions in a church setting of pastors or religious leaders or activists or the people who were put on pedestals around me who for some reason or another could not justify why they had so many but but by buts or no. No no no knows as caveat to the way in which they reached out to people like me. So i guess basically to say once i got into when i got it a university. It was like okay. The gloves off. Now i love. And i love you know really connects to what you said in in the first part of your answer. We talked about being a rule breaker. And i think that's something that speculative fiction gives us really good tools to work with as queer and trans people to break rules. So i i mean i love that. That was beautiful. Thank you so much worse than you can say to curious. Kids is i said so more because that's just the way it is or whatever I remember hearing that a lot. When i was a kid as well and i was just like put. No it doesn't why like there's gotta be a reason. Don't go out in the street. Why because he might get hit by a car. Okay that i can understand but like don't you know don't do something else. Why not. Because because i said so. That's not a satisfying answer. And it's never going to be for someone who's searching those. Well i mean you don't even know what you're searching for when you're like four or five but searching for something deeper beautiful. And then you know why to speculative fiction appeal to you particularly as a queer enter trans person. Well i feel like it gives me outsor- stories. Otherwise i was saying was get more interesting scenarios especially from slew of your stories. What went greece. Stories are subtle the real world. they're pretty limited. What what. They're trying to say or how they go about. The they're usually coming out there or or nets about oppression. Your let's face the find sometimes when all your fiction your em gets kind of demoralizing. And i don't feel like the stories bacher bus liberty or a different way of viewing appearance. I love that. I love what you said about queer possibility and i wonder if you could expand a little bit. Tell us more about what you think. Queer possibility means and how speculative fiction allows us to tap into that crank societies where we are just as different operates differently or is allowed to the different ways than the way they are. Now the real were awesome. Lot of progress in the last of rather homogeneous especially where i'm from The third world. yeah. I just don't feel light. The fiction i grew up with the sort of was about being a sore being homosexual. Was i want the or the way i want to youth my saints of a when i when i think about I i'm not sure what your age is. I'm okay okay. So a little bit older than you but I think back to like the earliest Stations that i had career folks and it's the same thing it's like. It's not the sort of stories that i wanna hear. I think a lot of that comes from the idea that you have to include there has to a reason why a characters queer Like it's it's not just this characters queer because hey creepy exists. It's like others. There's gotta be a reason and that has to be a plot point and like i don't know but y'all but my question is is not a plot point just add so it It's it's it's what happens. You get weird as viewed through a normative lens. I think it comes to the real world things of reality there. Aren't that many story Especially when you're setting these types of stories in certain areas of before these excuse. Yeah i think. I think you all are hitting the nail on the head right like it's quizzes. Fair and speculative fiction allows us again. Give us the tools to to expand. Explorer are clearness in our trans in ways. That maybe we can't do in in more straightforward fiction. I also write straightforward fiction. So i'm not like i don't think one's better or worse. But.

Reproductive Justice & Women in the COVID Economy
"Monica. Thank you for being with us today. Thank you so much for having me really is honored to be on the show with you today and to being conversation about reproductive justice. So i tell us what brought you to doing reproductive. Justice work and tell us a little bit abou- calling in reproductive justice in some people call her reproductive freedom. What brings me to reproductive justice. You know To answer that question. I have to take myself back to my hometown of wingate north carolina which is in rural north carolina. Honor one of those small one. Stop light kind of towns off a two lane highway and growing up in the rural south is. It's beautiful in so many ways that also opened my eyes to a lot at a very young age growing up in my community. I went to a school where there was only abstinence only education so we were desperately trying to find ways to have conversations about our bodies and to to talk about the feelings in the urges that we were getting as we were growing into adolescence and there was no space to do that until we had to find those things on our own and to create community with each other in huddle up in spaces to try to get this information in that to me. Just didn't seem right but we were doing the best that we could in. You know the church black church was episode for me my community. It's where i learned how to organize. I learned the had a voice. I mean there's just so much to Organizing route that. I get to the black church right because it was just an important piece in my journey however it was also a space where you know. We couldn't talk about bodies. It was just not the conversation that people were trying to have but almost every young girl that was in my church in so many that were in my community outreach. That went to school with. They were having children before graduating high school. And i'm like it's obvious that we're doing it. It's obvious that you know he's a conversation that we need to have and we just weren't having them and you know i i left wingate. I went to an h. b. c. You and came out while i was in school and it was like another part of my journey of understanding my body consent intimacy all different things that come along with growing into a young adult and i still felt. There wasn't a lot of space to have these conversations and I was desperately seeking those spaces and just trying to put the pieces together for myself. And so i think it's the experiences on. Unfortunately i also dealt with sexual assault in my adolescence as well as these experiences just all came together. And i didn't know what the term was yet but i knew that these issues were important to me in. I wanted to find answers and solutions to help me into also help those folks in our community that cared about. And so when. I put that beside you know reproductive justice movement that was started by black women in nineteen ninety four. The world starts collide. Right so yeah wasserman. Twelve black women actually came together. Some of which are very active in the work today. Like loretta ross. And dr tony bond able may will thomas here in georgia. These black women came together to create a framework that was more expansive in when thinking about our reproductive lives in this country and they brought together social justice in reproductive health and rights to talk about the intersection of her lives of black women and to have an organizing frame that allowed us to really talk about the myriad of issues. Right that we deal with lear making our decisions about our reproductive lives and so this framework was developed in nineteen ninety four battles women in now it is led by women of color all across country. Today right where we are all fighting for the human rights to have the children that we want in the ways that we want to prevent pregnancies without shame and with dignity to be able to parent our children in healthy and safe environments rights. We we we can already see the intersections of our work in terms of you know making sure i were not being plagued by you know. Environmental issues are making our water. Unclean or police brutality and we think about the rising rates of maternal mortality in this country and ultimately nova's work is really about our human rights bodley autonomy to make our own decisions about our bodies therefore our lives and so that's what reproductive justice is. It's the work it's not political home. It's where i feel whole and complete and those experiences again of growing up. Is that country. Girl and unique county is what really brought me to this work. And i didn't know that there was a movement waiting for me but it was.

"That you have an inner power to change the earth in a positive way and that appeal to me so. I did move over to this position to do that. Many things are happening atmospherically. In the world these days is at the forefront of people's minds. I guess part of what. I think you role is a bite is about the communication of the advances that are happening and being that cohen. Jewish what do you think helps in that communication process for people to engage with the signs. The research is being done and for them to take on board. There would actually means for them in digestible fashion. You know part of our mission part of their mission you're right. Is communicate educate convey information to ensure that the outcomes of the science are well distributed. Well known in that were actually and training the next generation of scientists so that they can take on the work and do even better work. More work is so important to communicate. These and what i'm seeing is very essential is that we connect to people in ways that it makes a difference in their lives and so one of our mission elements is to take our research and operationalize it to make a difference in people's lives so one of the ways that we do that for example have to do around life and death from storms so doing the research that provides trends so that we can notify people to leave the area so they are not negatively impacted. That has a very personal connection to me because my sister lives in new orleans and she lost her home to katrina and everything in it and so just the thought of having enough time to have warnings so that people could take what they need and leave and save themselves is so powerful and that mission in itself that is one of the things that we really strive to do is operationalize it so that individuals can really use that science for themselves. And that's a really practical way of people as applying signs and thinking about how it makes a difference in their lives on a daily basis. Potentially so if you were to think about meeting the leaders of the g twenty nations for example the most powerful economies in the world and you had a few moments to convey to them some of the learnings and insights that you've gained both thinking about astronomy and earth sciences. What would be the kind of key messages you. would you would offer to them. I think one of the most profound is that we must think of our earth as a system and we must think of our solar system as part of that system. I love to watch when there's solar activity and it translates on the earth to aurora. And you can actually see that. There's an interaction between the sun and the earth. Everything in our on our earth's interconnected the things that we do as humans and everything the water and the ground. Everything's interconnected the air. And i think we don't look at things in that perspective and we must. We must because when we fix certain things it might break other things so we have to look at it from that systems perspective. The other thing. I would love to say is we are a world of waste we waste. We wastewater we waste. We have resources that Pilot plastics the. Waste that we generate when you look at what we leave behind in space what we leave behind on the moon we leave behind in our oceans. The waste is a very powerful problem that we must address and then i would say food and hunger. We must find a way to address this in a way that the population of this earth they are not ever hungry. Why should they ever be hungry. In the distribution problem is really truly a distribution problem. And i would love to have those three things done just those well. I think you've really given us a sense of interdependence. not only what..

"Are making a difference every day. I feel like if i can lift someone else up to achieve things that they never thought possible. That is the best thing in the whole world i could ever do. That is truly something that is just a very powerful thing. When i see someone achieve something based on what they've learned and what they've been able to strive for. It's just incredible. I completely share that perspective with you. Laurie so how did you move on from there to a ucar where you are. No what's different about your role. No and how does that. Add to your interest in astronomy and great. Thank you so. When i had just returned from doing six weeks of training and project management and engineering in south africa in japan. When i got back from that i was being recruited for this position that i'm in now and i was speaking to the ceo of the company. I was at at nra. Oh and i said what do you think about me taking this other opportunity. I'm kind of ready to do the next step in my career and i've always had a very respectful open relationship with all of my previous bosses so that they know if something's on the horizon and they can't get caught off guard and he was extremely supportive. Any said. this really is a really great next step for you. What appeal to me in this position was it was about birth system science and there is one part of the organization is the motto solar observatory and so there was a component of astronomy. There was a component of system science modeling and computing which i really love and field campaigns and really putting instruments out there instrumentation all of these elements. I thought this is a really good fit for me for the next step in my career. Because i can help advance science in very powerful ways for individual humans where astronomy is nice from visualization and a vision kind of perspective. You look at the sky and you wonder but you look at the earth and you know that you can make a difference you know.

"It opened up a whole new world for me. I don't think any examples of how you did that. How you apply that creativity in those disciplines in project management for example in systems engineering. Two of the fields. That i'm really embedded in. That are part of my everyday experience. I really researched very deep research about what was in those disciplines that actually make them work very well. What makes them work in. What is very useful for us. And then i messed them together. In a unique way that i called complex systems methodology and that meshing those two together it was obvious that those two were very complementary but finding a way a creative way to think about it with very different perspective actually allowed me to be creative in an area where it was very structured is love to hear that for people that perhaps don't have that view of how they can apply their strengths in other worlds in other environments that you can be creative anywhere even in a structure that's right it really opens up a whole breadth of what you can do. If you're a doctor and you feel like you have to follow the procedures in a particular way. There will be times. When you need to think creatively around. How do you look at this person as a whole. And how do you solve this problem in a more holistic way or with some very creative combinations of activities so you can be creative in any area in any discipline. So you're able to draw yourself. And i know from firsthand experience because of course you and i first connected when you invited me to be involved in one of your books. You're writing that's right. And that was me talking about an expedition which you wouldn't necessarily imagine would be in the text off a book about project management systems engineering. My approach was to look at project management and systems engineering within very different experiences to try to tease out how those experiences were enabled or even made better based on the structure so it is quite a unique.
