I didn't want to be too loud or having too much fun because it's 123456 people getting physical therapy here at Athletico. You just stop online. Make an appointment to get a free pain assessment. They could have you out the door and no time. They have 525 locations and we've gone by a couple of them. So everything you said about that on the radio was super true. They've got a really nice staff here. Yeah, I got to say, also John, that Kris Bryant being back at Wrigley, maybe bitter, sweet, but Bright side to see him doing well with the team that's doing real. Well.

Professional Triathlete Ashley Paulson Recalls Her Toughest Moments on the Run
"Now i feel like especially with you because you're so positive in happy and you're just as bundle of energy so obviously we hear about the highlight reel. A lot and yours is extensive between racing and personal staff. You just have this relentless positive optimism. But i want to hear about a tough time so to look back on all the races you've done. Ultras ironman marathons twenty nine. Oh twenty nine. Which ones do you remember as being really challenging for any given reason you they're all challenging in different ways obviously Just because there's a smile on my face doesn't mean not like hurting news. I was hurting from my one Because of what. I had done earlier that week But some of my struggles in races The one that really popped in my head when you said that and it was actually Quite an inspiring story for me. Now that i look back at it. It was when i was racing. Kona world championship Ironman in two thousand fifteen. I was having a miserable day. I was out there from the beginning. I got kicked in the face came out with a is that i couldn't even see Fact my coach at the time He told my husband wants he. So my is. He's like there's she's not going to finish she cannot see at all So my bike ride was really really ridiculously slow. And how might curium trained so hard. I'd actually earned my pro card at the time to race professionally. I embarrassed and Feeling horrible about where amount on the run. And i see somebody walking in front of me and The person in front of me I'm like gosh that girl. She looks like meredith kessler. But there's not a chance she's way up there she's out there and i just go back to my pity party. You know today's rough today's talks. You know telling myself how how bad everything is But still of course moving forward. And as i get closer and closer i come to find out. It was meredith kessler like one of the number one in the world at the time it was. I used to out there and she obviously started before i did so i was actually passing meredith kessler and in my mind i was like i. I'm not saying this like oh my gosh. I'd beat meredith task. No it was like. She wasn't stopping. She was having a worse day than i was. And she wasn't
New York Post Miranda Devine Says Some Reporters Are Acting as Ciphers for Biden White Hosue
"What do you What do you think about these so called media Reporters like it's CNN and the Washington Post. Got this guy Jeremy Bar you've got Brian Stelter. Young people focus on We're going to report on the media industry. Do you ever get contacted by them asking you to explain Why the media won't pick up on these major stories. No, it's not. It's a joke. Right? Contact us is the opposite is to pull pull apart what we've done. You know. Glenn Kessler at The Washington Post, tried to pull apart our story on just recently on the cafe Milano that story very gullible, Accepting the word of the White House against what? You know the evidence that we've produced. It makes no sense. These are not. These people are not acting as reporters or journalists, but as ciphers for either the surveillance, state or champions of Biden White House and which you know is extraordinary. Considering for four years under Trump, Um the the media was so ferociously antagonistic and I'm not even against that. You know, I think you you hold power to account that's sort of what journalists are meant to do, But then you don't turn around and become Supine puppy dogs When you know the other side gets into office, Um, I It's just

"Trying to And this is a dangerous thing. John Locke. To get into the mind of people like Joe Biden and try and understand this, we have open borders. So when people coming into this country Who are violent criminals. Violent criminals and many of them we don't even know who they are and so forth, and so on. So if the if the administration won't even control people from coming into the country, how are they going to control things from coming into the country? The border is open. That's number one. They appoint these judges who are soft on crime. They are soft on crime. That's number two. They never denounced Soros for funding in these critical cities and other places. These prosecutors who run on not prosecuting number three, they call this bail reform. It's not bail reform its get out of jail free for violent criminals since you pointed out Meanwhile, he talks about who needs 100 rounds. You know, there's a deer have a Kevlar vest. He says it twice. It's so stupid. 100 rounds. Who needs 100? I'll tell you If somebody breaks in your house, there's three people breaking into your house. So they all have semi automatic weapons. I think I'd want 100 rounds, wouldn't you? Sure. Well, you know, One of the ironies is most states banned you using an air 15 to go and hunt deer. And the reason is is because the caliber is sufficiently small that they're worried that you will wound and not kill the deer. I mean, I don't know. Maybe that's too esoteric to get into. But it's just I don't know. It's I wish we had a media that would call them out on these types that don't hold your breast. Your life will be very short for you.

"Yes because it's more stable okay. I understand what you're saying all right. Well that's all i have for you eric. I hope this look into our future was in too bleak. Oh no it sounds like we did something to fix it before. It became a huge problem. Yeah well some governments did. Us government did on the right steps to at least but there was actually more concerned that was brought up. Recently because starlink you know the the space x project to give internet everybody from satellites that would add i think twice as many satellites that are in orbit right now so requires much more corrections to keep it from hitting anything else. In fact i think isa at the european space agency got a little annoyed with it and they started tweeting. Just like oh my god. I can't believe we have to move our own satellites that are doing important scientific work for this internet. So yeah i guess i hopefully. It'll be a tragedy that's been averted.

"Satellite right. There turns out there's a lot of gps satellites up there and only a finite number of orbits that they can have around the earth. That's probably right. I mean space is really big. It's not like you won't have advanced notice before it gets close to you after all it's not like there's something out there in the middle of nowhere space to swerve a satellite out of place right right. Do you think there's anything out there when you phrase it like that knowing gravity's weird maybe some sort of weird gravity well That was a trick question. There's there's not really anything out there unless you put something out there okay. Maybe an asteroid. But we're going to ignore that so all right if you know it's coming like there's another satellite intersecting your orbit. Just move out of the way in. Come back to your normal or when it's gone right like that'd be pretty easy to do if you have two satellites now. Can you throw it a guest. As to how many active satellites there are around the earth there has to be like hundreds of thousands woah. Okay okay it's too much. It's a little under twenty eight hundred. That are active right now. Okay that are active. What about the space junk ones. Well i mean they're still around some of them have deorbit it. But there's there's still there. Yeah remember these things still cost like hundreds of millions of dollars to get these satellites made up there in the space so can have millions hundreds of thousands. Now that would be all fine. But what do you do once. You're done with this satellite and it's reached the end of its lifetime. So eric say you were put in charge of this. How would you deal with dead satellite. Not much not much. You just leave it there. I don't know how ineffective way to reclaim it. But say you had a bunch of resources at your disposal a disposal. What would you try to do. Ideally if i had a choice and the ability to do it i'd love to have a way to recapture it. Neither an essentially recycle it. That would make sense yet. Did these are expensive. Picks up there but okay. What if instead you're in the military in a certain country and you needed to get rid of that satellite like it had some sensitive thing in it that you didn't want out there. Oh you blow it up. Yeah that's that's exactly what happens is certain satellites There would be shut down with missile essentially in space though it. If it's an orbit that wouldn't really be down. That would be exploding in a bunch of directions that leave stuff in orbit. Yeah i suppose that expression that was trying to say but yeah. I wouldn't go down anywhere. It would be shot still okay. It doesn't quite the same ring. So so that's what used to happen with satellites where military's which is shoot them down with a missile but there's an issue that arises from that there's a bunch of debris that's scattered all over the place because of the satellite and since it's space it's it'll be there and ongoing for a while especially if it's higher than lower orbit in low-earth there's still some atmosphere up there so any debris will eventually within several years deorbit but in that time it would still be able to make hundreds to thousands of revolutions earth. All of which is more opportunities to say it and other satellite And when that happens then there's a bit of a chain reaction that starts to warm. How often do satellites get hit. Well i'll get to that all right perfect. So debris collides with the satellite and depending on its trajectory can either..

I'm going to be talking about kessler syndrome. Have you heard about this before. No sounds interesting though. That's perfect let's get into it but before i do. This has nothing to do with biology or illnesses or psychological things even though the name might suggest that okay. It's kind of weird naming phenomena syndrome without being biology related. It would be strange to ought named something syndrome if it doesn't have anything to do with biology or psych. Yeah but here. We're going to be talking about satellites. Oh okay say you want to launch a gps satellite ignoring all the logistics of getting it off the ground making it putting it in orbit satellite will have to stay in one specific orbit around the world for the rest of its lifetime in this case it would actually go to. I think it's medium earth or pretty pretty far up okay just as a bit of background. There are layers to orbits. That satellites usually have so they don't run into each other correct that that and sometimes you want to the satellite to super apps. Follow a part of the earth so you put it in geostationary orbit and that orbit Needs be further away there. So there's layers to this you go from low earth to medium to high slash geostationary orbits. This is sort of the categories that they're put in psych western for your first before we keep going. Is there a difference in the orbit to the signal strength. That the satellite. Has i suppose so. But with oftentimes with satellites. And maybe they're gathering scientific data. They can usually transmitted without needing to be too close to the earth. Gotcha yes is the short answer. I'll take this. Gps satellite that we're launching its cruising along with wait. There's there's something that you seen the distance. What is that is it..

Five Willis Towers worth of office space is empty in downtown Chicago
"Chicago as a record amount of unused office space 21.4 million square feet. That's enough empty office space to fill about five Willis Towers and the Tribune reports. It could be even more in the coming years. Last year ended with 15.5% of downtown office space unleased, according to the commercial real estate firm CVR E that is up from close to 13% a year earlier, and the vacancy rate could climb to 18% by the end of next year. They've been slumps like that in the past, but no modern day precedent for what happens after a pandemic. Large sections of unwanted office space could drag down businesses like restaurants, bars and shops. Bob Kessler,

Space Junk Chronicals
"Since nineteen fifty seven. Humanity has been launching satellites into earth orbit. It's estimated in the last four years almost nine thousand satellites in total have put into orbit for the vast majority of space age. There was never a plan for what would be done with the satellites after their lifetime. They were launched without any thought as to how or if they could ever come down the nine thousand or so satellites. Five thousand are still in orbit. Two thousand our service in three thousand are dead. D satellites are usually quite large. They can vary in size from a bus to a box and they aren't the real problem when it comes to space junk the big problem is debris when you send up a rocket there's all sorts of miscellaneous parts on the upper stage of the rocket that holds the satellite. That will go into orbit with it. This can include metal panels bolts screws and even flakes of paint. You'd think that given how big spaces that space junk might not be a problem as douglas adams noted quote space is big really big. You won't believe how vastly hugely mind. Bogglingly big it is suppose you had a million pennies that would be enough to easily fit in a minivan. Now let's suppose you distributed those pennies all over the world including the ocean and antarctica. Each penny would have one hundred ninety. Seven square miles of space or a single penny would have a square which was fourteen by fourteen miles factor in that the lowest earth orbit is a sphere larger than the earth. And that there's a vertical dimension where we could put pennies at different elevations. Then it would seem that space junk was a big problem if the object just sat there. That's true it wouldn't be a problem however all that junk isn't just sitting there. It's orbiting earth at extremely high speeds. Any piece of space junk is probably travelling at at least seventeen thousand miles per hour when something is traveling that fast no matter how small it is it can cause a great deal of damage. Moreover everything is on a slightly different orbit that means over time these orbits can cross and the longer something remains in orbit the greater the odds that these past will eventually cross and that things will smash together some of the things which are floating around in space include two cameras that got away from astronauts players a screwdriver or wrench a full toolbag garbage bags a lens cap a spatula and microscopic flakes of rocket propellant and that is on top of all the rocket debris and dead satellites if a ship with astronauts were to be hit it could lead to the deaths of the crew if important satellite were to be hid it could lead to a loss of critical communications. Gps signals or observational capabilities. This isn't just a theoretical problem. There have been cases of collisions in space. The space shuttle headed many tiny impacts from debris in space on the seven space shuttle mission. In one thousand. Nine hundred three. The front windshield was hit by a fleck of paint which damaged the window. It looked very similar to what happens when a rocket. your windshield damage. To the shuttle's he tiles was so common that the eventually began flying the shuttle backwards in space so that the engines which weren't used during re entry took most of the damage. The shuttle endeavour was hit by an object so large that its radiator looked like it was hit with a bullet. The international space station has to move on average at least once a year to avoid space debris the soviet cosmos twelve. Seventy five satellite was hit by an object in one thousand nine hundred eighty one which was believed to be the first case of a satellite being destroyed by space junk. Perhaps the worst case occurred in two thousand nine when the kosmos twenty fifty one satellite which was dead smashed into the iridium thirty three satellite at a relative speed of twenty six thousand miles per hour. These collisions and there have been several more only make things worse. In the first case three hundred objects were created from the collision in the second there were suddenly thousands of new objects thrown off on different trajectories in orbit in two thousand seven. The chinese government didn't anti-satellite missile test. That blew up a satellite in space creating tens of thousands of pieces of debris this problem of junk causing collisions which then creates exponentially more junk risk. Something called the kessler syndrome. This hypothesized in nineteen seventy eight by nasa. Scientists david kessler. He proposed that collisions could start a cascade of debris which would cause more collisions and even more debris rinse and repeat.

"Hello and welcome to the skeptics guide to the universe. Today is sunday january seventeenth twenty twenty one. And this is your host. Stephen avella joining me this week. Or bob novella. Everybody cara santa maria. Howdy joy novella. Hey guys and evan bernstein skepticism. On a sunday. I love it. This is a rare sunday recording. We're doing this because of the twelve hour show next saturday. The saturday this show comes out. I probably will be posted in this up right before we begin to twelve hours. Show so if. You're listening to this on saturday that it comes out. We're probably in the middle of the twelve hour show. Why aren't you watching that instead. Leaving this to console you on sunday or monday because the twelve hour livestream is over priorities. So we're not keep saying like we're trying to get away from doing the covert thing every week but there's always stuff to talk about that has to recover recovered. Schwab one thing about it. Obviously it's still raging the numbers that getting scary high still is crazy but david kessler which was announced as the covert czar for the incoming biden. Administration you guys remember who he is. Yes cast that. He was in From london movie right cutler no he was a former head of the fda in the ninety s and after his stint in the at the fda in the nineties the president for a while of yale school of medicine. That's how i. I know you have on speedo him personally. But you know the commissioner of food and drugs for h w bush and clinton muslim sounds nonpartisan. I like that a he. He was very much opposed to the shea. Dietary supplement health and education. Act which was a terrible loss stills eternal and he was he was completely right correct in his opposition to it so hopefully because a lot of experience. Hopefully he'll will prove to be the right person for this job. And we're hoping to shift into high gear will along that line steve in three days. Yeah did you hear. That biden is elevating. He's making a cabinet of science. Yes yes scientists. -nology whatever is now going to be cabinet. Level is a cabinet level position for the first ever cap which will not be in the line of succession by the way. It's a cabinet level position. But it's not a cabinet position. I thought he was building a cabinet filled with cool science thing like curio cabinet closet of mystery. I remember that from what is this endless fascination with forbidden closet of mr really cool i mean. It's the first time the president has ever put somebody at that high. A level in science position which conferences shows his commitment to evidence based policy and also francis. Arnold who i'm super excited about you guys remember. She's caltech scientist who recently won a nobel prize. She's going to be within his his group. I'm not really sure how everybody's designated quite yet but within that group of scientists which is very exciting. I think it should be like the bridge of the enterprise. D where you've got the president the vice president and you've got the czar of science right up there with the big boys because that's where belongs in the position that the council the troy was in. That's what i'm saying. Sitting do truth be told captains left. I am kind of glad that it's not a. I shouldn't say this i don't know i don't know if i would want it to be a cabinet position because then because then they enter into the line of succession and i do worry that whoever is appointed could potentially be. Isn't that a worry about every single cabinet level position. Never i mean. Is there a cabinet member. You guys ready to become president on day one. I mean unless you've watched the survivor soul survivor. Some of those people have served in previous administrations have worked in government. It's obviously it's never happened. I it's so unlikely that i don't think someone's going to pick or not pick a cabinet member because they don't think that they're ready to be president. Yeah i mean why. Scientists are science minded person. Good as president. I think that's what we want. They wouldn't necessarily be it would be but they would still need to be somebody who has executive leadership skills all right. Let's get right into some news items. Is it true that astronomers were wrong about the number of galaxies in the universe. a what. Yeah they're often wrong about stuff like that so yeah. The estimated number of galaxies in the universe was recently cut in half. You are correct steve. So how the hell did this happen. And and more importantly what is the worst title for a news item covering this discovery. All all will be revealed So this all started years ago when the hubble space telescope did some deep sky surveys and it came up with the estimate for the number of galaxies which was two trillion lots of galaxies two trillion in the universe. It did this by using by doing deep field observations. These are observations. That take a really long time looking at the same patch of sky. So you're you're building up the photons right you just building up. The photons. seeing what's revealed and that would that reveals after a while that reveals the very very very faint galaxies. And then then it's easy. Yes sir but can we clarify. Are you talking about the observable universe so you just just just a good point to a good time to clarify that. The the observable universe is a subset of the total universe because like because some of the universe has moved beyond the on the einstein limit rights even traveling at the speed of light. The universe is not old enough for light to travel from there to here so we can't see it's outside of our bubble our light bubble right. It's a little complicated. But yeah i think primarily although not necessarily implies that it's it's just it's just observable we'll we'll see maybe we can. Let's revisit at the end okay. So then so then. Once you have this patch of sky that you've looked at for a while Then you and then you then you know how many galaxies right then you just multiply that little patch by how many similar how many patches in the in the sky are there. And that's and that's basically. What hubble did but we knew that. That wasn't quite accurate though that that's because there has to be other galaxies that are out there that are just too faint to be directly detected even with the best deep field observation that the h. The hubble space telescope could muster onto those super faint galaxies though they do create a suffused glow. Just a general glow in the galaxy and now this background glow that i'm talking about is called the cosmic optical background which is a term. I hadn't i hadn't seen before which is fascinating because it reminded me of maybe was well the cosmic microwave background which is the first light of the universe when it became transparent to electro-magnetic radiation the cosmic optical background that was the glow of all the

And that's what this new book about finding meaning after the person has absolutely now when you talk about finding meaning. Tell us how this the practice of finding meaning in grief serve as a key to post traumatic growth certainly a cushion. I always tell people. Meeting doesn't take away the pain but listening to the pain. And i'm so glad you mentioned the post. Monastic growth. you know can live. Were about post traumatic stress.

You're having absolutely absolutely and Even in dealing with that you can have losses that happen back to back or you know within the same year within the same month so yes definitely Something that is important to discuss now. I'm you talked about the feelings of shiva. Cova the or as you call it. Survivor's guilt That's something that can develop as we know in a lot of different ways. We always feel that if i could have. I could've done this. I should have done more. And if i had they'd still be alive today as you said i'm what advice do you have for those who are struggling with that type of guilt to work through their emotions in order to move forward well to remember and it's very hard to do to understand that it is tragic commits fully agree to their life is over into recognize air life for so precious. We often think if only it was me. I should have died first that the survivor but if fairly was precious so is on and we have to move from the why that they lie to the. How were we going to move forward on now that they have done. And that's a real challenge. That's why try to give some things in the book to help. And one of the things i own is i also included on anyone. Who gets the book can go to six days dot com and i have a frequent pain class for anyone who gets to cook because it is hard to work through the survivor's guilt to water all those indeed. Now you also in talking about processing grief who who which we just talked about In your book you also discuss the role that our thoughts play in processing that grief moving forward particularly when it comes to messages that we repeatedly tell ourselves our minds about our laws Share more about how we can rewire our thoughts to transform the original meaning of our grief and two new meaning. It's more positive and empowering idea Here would be so nice if after we've had a devastating loss if our mind with oh my gosh you've had ever thieving long time here for you. Extra compassionate would be great but the reality is sometimes what. I'm only doesn't goes well..

It's been released when there was not any other video available or when there was concerned that if we don't release it, we have a chance for some significant unrest and we might be able to get ahead of that if we released what we have. And so I guess presumably that means in this case because we had the video we did. There was less of a need to do it that to me. Still is a very different question than whether in the in the in the process. Of An officer being terminated, and in this case charged whether the Union There's a stipulation that indicates the union is required to receive.

"Of them are finished and I'm currently writing to others the Sedona pack and also the one. We're GONNA going to be talking about the sentinels of Savannah the sentinels of Savannah and the first book was called the Pirates Passion which I read so why don't you give a synopsis. It's so that I don't give away something. That shouldn't be given away. Okay well. There's actually a novella. That's like a Prequel just is to get you into the whole world but basically there is a pirate crew that sank outside of Savannah over two hundred years ago in the seventeen in hundreds and but the thing was that their final plunder was supposed to be the world's greatest treasure but when they took over the ship all they found was a wouldn't cup that seemed to have always have water in it and so they all drank from this without realizing that they had taken a sip zip from the holy grail so all of these men have are still alive. They're now immortal and so most of them still live in Savannah. Now they have regular the jobs they have made a replica of their ships so that they can still sale and and their captain has is still pirating but he's pirating realestate and so anyway they made the special division of the government department thirteen who deals with paranormal threats to American citizens and because they're the government they have to there's laws and the can't steal but he meets up with the immortal pirate crew and gives them the option of stealing now for the government government so they are going back to some of their piracy ways and also helping America's though it has been really wild and fund series right right so far and that is of course a romance as well as paranormal paranormal romance right there in the title so where does who the romance between so in pirates passion the romances between the ship's pilot so the guy who steers the ship and a historian story in who works for the Maritime Museum in Savannah Dr Charlotte's Claire and she has some secrets of her own and it was it was a wild old adventure of a book to write and the thing is when when you're writing romance with these big paranormal elements. It's really hard to balance the the two because you want the romance readers to get that that happy ever after that there that they want but when you who have paranormal elements a lot of times the stakes are gigantic. You know the world could end. There's lots of deaths than all that kind of thing so for me. It's always a fun juggling act to keep it even so that so that the romance is achieved but we also get a really fun adventure with lots of danger her for me as a writer. I need lots of danger. When my kids were younger and at home still they would see me sitting at the computer. Peter chomping on gum going know the story is stalled. What's happening in my I had taught my daughter was time to raise the body count because nothing gets things moving like a dead on so so anyway a lot of people die in my book says well but balancing the romance with that is always a challenge but ah in this book it was it was not so difficult because the hero and heroine had a lot of sparked instantly which is always fun. I'm for me I was going to ask you about the the that element of it because I haven't read. I've read a lot of urban fantasy and I've read a lot of paranormal stories but right right not paranormal romance and certainly that balance is different than if it were just an urban fantasy the you know in an bourbon fantasy you might have a romantic subplot but it's not quite as front and center as the romance is in pirates passion and of course there's also the difference references cover art right definitely yes. If you're writing paranormal romance the the the market is that there's some kind of man chest on there and that the Manchester in some kind of fog and that makes readers go. It's paranormal but yeah in urban and fantasy. There's almost always a big romance subplot going on but in urban fantasy there doesn't have to be happily ever after after and in Romance. That's the deal. You're making with the reader so like if it's a mystery the deal with the reader is that you will solve the crime by the end of the book and the deal with a romance is that there will be a happily ever after some how you may not know how that's GonNa Happen but somehow there will be happily ever after at the end and and so so it does make it tricky because if you don't meet that the readers are really disappointed and in urban fantasy you got a little more wiggle edel room because you can have happy for now you can have that they break up at the end but there's another book so maybe they'll get back together. You know and like sookie cookie stackhouse books. She had many happy for now with all different people so so you have a little more options is there you couldn't do that in a paranormal romance because the reader is expecting a happily ever after so in paranormal romance series. Usually you will usually see some kind of band of brothers like this. One has a pirate crew because although all those characters will be in every book I need a different character to be able to get his happily ever after and that's why we're wolves shifter's and things like that work really well and paranormal romance because do you have a whole pack and each one gets to be the hero of a book does paranormal romance draw in readers from the mortar regular fantasy side and also drawn from the romance side that might not otherwise venture into that territory. Is it a place where they come together at ecumenical sort of yeah. I think so I think so I think paranormal romances like a gateway drug to fantasy for romance readers because they get that taste of the world building and you know the the world building and thou super high stakes you know the world could end you know a city destroyed or something like that and and it's it's a whole new thing because other there's lots of genres of romance chance historical contemporary romantic suspense romantic suspense can sometimes have super high stakes also but but the FA- fantasy elements events and are all in paranormal romance so if a romance reader who may be typically reads historical stumbles across a time travel or a paranormal romance or something like that that can be there that can be their first experience sometimes with that kind of genre and can lead them him toward you know urban fantasy and and maybe even high fantasy to be fair to the cover art with the man chest there was of course for a longtime urban fantasy seemed to be distinguished by the bare midriff of the female protagonist exactly exactly and and urban fantasy for a long time it had to be the female protagonists she had to be in black leather and high heeled boots and it's like if you read the book the. You know the women are like kicking ass and I'm sure it wasn't an high heel boots but but that was what needed to be on the cover but all of that is really like marketing and bookstore. You know what what people are expecting. I think and I I don't know who came up with what those needs to be but they sure stick now. We're using parrots passion as an example of your creative process. So where did the idea. I know that's a that's a cliche. Where do your ideas come from but nevertheless where did the idea or the the seed that grew departments passion come from and is that typical of the way that your ideas come to you well actually it. Was it was really neat meet. I got invited to be part of an anthology for the romantic times. romantic times was a magazine that would have the Book Lovers Convention National Convention where people came from all over the world lots of Australian readers would come to that one and they wanted it was happening in Atlanta and so the called it moonshine and Magnolias and they wanted they picked twenty romance authors to of all all different genres of romance to write a novella that was set in the south and they need it and the only requirement was it had to include Atlanta and and I've been to Atlanta and it's not like my most favorite city but my grandmother and her family were all from Savannah and I love Savannah Savannah been there before. It's very haunted city. It's just it's so gorgeous and so much history and so I thought about Savannah. Uh If I if I said it in Savannah I could put the bad guy in Atlanta and then I'm I'm thinking about it and I've been to Savannah before and Savannah is this is all go some pirates and it was a big pirate hub back in the day you can go the pirates in restaurant it used to be a bar back then but it is still there and you can go inside and they will show you the pirate tunnels that are still there where they would get they would get you so drunk that you would pass out and they would drag you through the tunnels onto a ship and when you wake up out in the ocean your they're like well. Well your ship's doctor now so anyway you can still see those in savannah and when you walk along River Street you know they have of all the pirate stuff and so anyway. I thought well if I wrote a pirate boat but I don't want it to be historical. I wanted to the now. How can I make these pirates more role and then I thought about the Holy Grail and I thought Oh that could work and the whole thing came together when I wrote the Novella for that event offense and my agent wanted to read it so I sent it to her and she wrote me. She wrote me back she goes. I forgot to eat lunch. I was is reading the end. Please tell me the whole crew is going to get a book and let me sell the series and I was like okay so so anyway I I. I started working on you know what the crew stories would be so that I could give her a series synopsis and she sold the whole series so so I'm writing I'm finishing book for right now and there will be four more. There's eight bucks altogether so if that's kind of an unusual way for the series to come about where where have held us none of your others come from the images characters settings what what kind of get you're going to you. Have my other series came from short stories that I wrote. When I the first time I met Ray Bradbury I had only I had written my first book. I had written night Walker. Palm Raider told me you know you're going to be a writer while I was new so I didn't realize how many rejections you get.

Immortal beloved was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award when she's not riding. Lisa is a professional vocalist and has performed with San Diego Opera as well as other musical theater companies in San Diego and if you've listened to this show long enough you know that I will definitely be asking her about that. Since I do some of that stuff myself so welcome to world-shapers they said thank you. I'm glad to be here now. Usually start the show by talking about how we know each other will this is kind of a different one because basically I know you because I was on your show so right yeah you've been on you've been on book lights a couple of times and we always have such a great time plus. We have the musical background so I feel like we already know each other. We will talk a little bit about booklets later on to get a chance to talk about that. I think I hear cats in the background. Yes sorry my cat never comes in in here but she just decided to come in and beyond the radio so sorry about that folks minds minds asleep somewhere he might join in as well so here the other their cat and they'll have a conversation. I think it was my second interview with John Sculley. They were cats in the background so it's kind of a world-shapers traditions good Ed. Maybe my cat knew that. I wasn't aware he's probably a long time probably a longtime listener well. They'll start by taking you back. I always say this. It's kind of appropriate considering the book that we're going to be focusing on pirates fashion. Take you back into the midst of time but perhaps quite quite not as far back as the eighteenth century had to find out with you of became well first of all where you were born where you grew up and then how you became interested in writing and specifically quickly in writing tales of the paranormal in the fantastic well it's kind of an interesting story because it sort of paranormal and I promise that it's true uh-huh I grew up in San Diego and after I graduated high school I got into our family business we made hospital window blinds and so I've traveled a lot for trade shows and one of those trade shows took me to New Orleans and some background I sang opera and band musical theater that was music was might focal point but I always wrote for fun and I was madly in love with Anne Rice's vampire chronicles nickels but anyone who was a fan back in the nineties it took a year and a half for another book to come out and way back in the day of the Internet. When there were member you net groups and things like that there was an rice one and I met some other women there we started and our own yahoo group to write our own vampires while we would wait for the next vampire book so I probably did that. I would write every night my own vampires empires just for fun probably for like eight years never thought about publishing anything but I have a trade show in New Orleans and so since I was in New Orleans I had to get my palm read and the palm reader gave me the reading. It seemed pretty right on and then as we were leaving. She stopped me at the door and said I can. I ask you something and I said sure and she said are you a writer and I said No. I saw window shades then and I thought about it and I said well I I write for fun every night and she smiled and said you're going to be a famous writer. Someday and I was like well and my I brain would not let it go and by the time I got back to the airport I had written out a plot outline for my first book night Walker occur which was my in vampires in San Diego anyway very cool book but it took me a really long time to get that published but I wrote in six months and I had no idea that all those years I had been practising. I I got to meet Ray Bradbury a couple times before he passed away and I and he was he always believed that you had to write somewhere around eight hundred thousand words of crap before you became a storyteller and I never knew that that was what I was doing. I filled up a whole hard drive with text documents of of my vampires and never with any the inkling that I would publish it if I hadn't seen that palm reader. I don't know that I ever would have gotten that nudge to to try and get published and then I wrote short stories his that was where immortal beloved came from because I thought I'm not sure I'm a good writer. I've just been writing for fun so I wrote a bunch short stories and I got five of them published in publications on I thought okay so I'm not horrible and I went on on from there but without that palm reader in New Orleans. I it just wasn't on my radar. I was so busy singing and working the writing was just for fun on so she really changed the course of my life that day unexpected. It was very strange. Now I write full-time so avenue so you said that you've always written did you. Did you actually start as a kid. many many of US writers do start whenever we're quite young yeah yeah I did. I did right when I was a kid but I never thought I was going to be a writer rider. I wrote my first book in Sixth Grade they actually bound and published it for me in the school library and thankfully when they redid the school library somebody on the school board found me and brought my book back it was called wonder some Unicorn Creek it was all of like twenty pages but that was my first book going to say fortunately they threw out when they know I got that wonderful book back but but I never her. I always wrote but I didn't have that. you know. I I just never realised I was going to be a novelist that was never on my radar until all New Orleans. So when did the music come in music has always been my. I love that was my My Dad was a musician -sition and as soon as I got to junior high I was in choir and I had all the Solos in high school and and right out a high school I was taking private voice lessons and getting in San Diego Comic Opera Lyric Opera and stuff like that it was just music has always spend my first my first love and passion and I still I still have a church job so I still do sing every week and that was really where my focus was and I wrote but but during all of that I was writing every night I was building in good skills for becoming becoming a writer without any idea that I was ever going to be one so it's very very odd so you mentioned that you started with short stories. where is immortal beloved published. I was the one that was a finalist for Bam stoker. Where did it Fall News v one or was it an earlier winner. At what was it about because I'm not familiar with the story. Okay immortal beloved was has I was trying to write some short stories that I could try to get published Z. Because I really had no concept of by was a good storyteller or not but I had had the idea about it because I'm very musical I had the idea about Beethoven and nobody has figured figured out you know his who his immortal beloved was and I was really into writing vampires so I thought what if Beethoven's wins immortal beloved really was immortal and what if it had to be a secret because he was a man and so anyway the story takes place place today but the vampire is hearing a child prodigy playing the Moonlight Sonata and he's wondering if it's Beethoven Token a really cool story and I wrote it as an experiment I wrote it while I was listening to the Moonlight Sonata over and over and it really has has like three different acts in the Moonlight Sonata and so the story kind of follows that that same kind of structure and it got. It's been republished quite a few times. it's in an anthology. That's out right. Now called came. Look it up dead souls. That's when it's gone. It's a paperback anthology called dead souls reprinted in that right now but it was it was a fabulous experiment and the story came out really while I was really proud of it did my research and I felt like at the end. Maybe Beethoven was a love with a male vampire. Movie called Immortal Beloved of course did not have a vampire also also dealing with that question of exactly beloved was and somebody recently they found some DNA or something I don't know but I I saw it pop up again recently and they still don't know but but they think they're closer to figuring it out. I don't know it's a great mystery. Though so talking about Oh to immortal beloved and melts are going to get into your research because obviously there were some involved there when we talk about the book So why don't we start talking about the book now you've written books. How many series do you have at this point. I have five series so far.
