Harry and Meghan on how race factored into their U.K. press coverage
"Highly anticipated interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry about their decision to leave the royal family last year aired on CBS when I was pregnant. All around the same time, so we have in tandem. The conversation of he won't be given security. It's not gonna be given a title. And also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be. When he's born. Marchal faced harsh criticism even before the interview ran because of accusations of bullying and the timing of the interview's release. And 99 year old patriarch, Prince Philip, is currently still in the hospital following a heart procedure. But Megan and Harry spent most of the discussion giving their side of the tabloid stories that have circulated. And they revealed some shocking details. They alleged that they were royal conversations about how dark their child's skin would be riffs within the family and even mental health issues. Megan struggled with With us to discuss all of this is Kristen Minds? Er, a royal watcher Podcaster and author of How To Be Fine, Kristen. Welcome. Hi, Matt. All right, Kristen. So I just first want to get your overall reaction to the interview yesterday. And if there was anything that surprised you more than anything else Oh, my gosh. There's so much to say about this interview. I think what I was mostly surprised by was how forthcoming Meghan and Harry were about all sorts of things that normally they would have to be buttoned up about. For example, I didn't expect either of them to name names at any point, Megan very early on in the interview, actually set the record straight about something with her sister in law, Kate and I wasn't expecting that. So, Yeah, I absolutely was surprised that many moments and I even cried watching some of this. Wow. What touched you? What made you cry or upset? You? Wow, I think that we all knew that Meghan was going through a very tough time. There she was being attacked with racist media stories, misogynistic media stories. We know that she wasn't being protected. We know the firm was not setting the record straight. When I say the firm I mean, the business side of the royal family was not setting the record straight. And, you know, I think that was obvious from the outside. But we had no idea of how unprotected she felt how lonely she felt how much they were keeping her behind Palace walls all the time and We had no idea that she was suicidal, and she talked very frankly about that. How she thought things would be better if she just weren't alive anymore, And fortunately, Harry provided solace for her. She leaned on one of Princess Diana's old friends. But when she went to the firm, they refused to help her. They said it would not be a good look. Didn't he refused to help her like getting her mental health treatment or anything of the lake, right? Yes, exactly. Specifically as it relates to racist treatment, which is something that came up again and again in this interview for Meghan is a woman of mixed race background. What Revelations did she and Harry reveal about how the palace treated her because of her race. There was some big bombshells, and they're mostly Harry said that he had some learning to do about race because it's one thing toe read about race or have friends of color but to be married to Megan and to be the father now the child of color. He had a lot of learning to do. And he said his family is not really up on all of that learning and one example they gave us that the whole family or the firm I should say was very concerned about what color will our choose skin be when he's born? And there were major concerns. What will it look like? What will people think? What if he's too dark, and they didn't say that directly to Megan, But Harry confirmed that they made that clear to him, and they would not name names of who specifically was voicing those concerns. But those concerns were very real. You said earlier that Meghan set the record straight about her and what she's had to deal with and what the major story was about her sister in law Can you explain a little bit about that? Like what That story was about and how she set the record straight. Yes, yes, well, there have been a number of stories in the UK tabloid press trying to pick these two women against each other because tabloids love a story where one person gets to be the hero and one gets to be the villain and I've often said making up as the villain and one story that got repeated over and over and over again was that Meghan in the lead up to her wedding was a bridezilla that she made Kate cry that she was being a tyrant about the bridesmaids dresses and, um That was repeated in so many outlets, and Meghan set the record straight and said it was actually the other way around. But Kate was very apologetic. Kate sent me flowers and the note she did all the things I would have done. If I hurt someone's feelings, and I forgave her, and I don't think that you know, Kate would necessarily want this falsehood out there, but it never got corrected. So she corrected herself last night. Wow,

Harry and Meghan detail royal struggles, from discussions of baby's skin tone to suicidal thoughts
"Oh what an interview. Harry and meghan shocked everyone last night during their explosive. Sit down with oprah winfrey and the royal family may never be the same again. I'm going to try not to yell like crazy. Because i've been screaming all morning ever since i watched this last night. There is so much to discuss. We head to begin our top royals. Melanie bromley to the show. As oh my gosh i. It's almost like we don't even know where to begin. So let's do this before we dive. And let's take a look at the top bombshells of the night who could be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark skinned might be when he's born. What here's a conversation with you. With harry about how dark your baby is going to be. Potentially and what that would mean or look like conversation. I'm never going to shy. But at the time the time it was oak ridge. I respect sharks. Can you tell us what the question was. I'm not comfortable with sharing. Is he taking your calls. Now is a lot of work through that. I feel really let down. Because he's been through something similar. I always love him. But there's a lot of the top. I just had that conversation with harry. I don't want to be alive anymore. Yeah it was like these. Are the thoughts. That i'm having in the middle of the night. That are very clear. And i'm scared because this is very real. Did you make kate cry now. So where did that come from. It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something but she owned it and she apologize and flowers and a note apologizing. There's this invisible. What's what's what's termed or referred to as the invisible contracts behind closed doors between the institution and the tabloids if you as a family member a willing to wine dine and give access to these reporters than you will get better press. I think there's a reason that these tabloids have holiday parties at the palace. Okay now before we get into everything. We need to lease comment. That this part. The palace has not commented on the interview. Okay lots of mixed feelings about this. Where do we start. Let's do this first impressions now first impression. My impression is that this is the most damaging interview that we've ever seen about the royal family if you thought diana's interview in nineteen thousand nine hundred was bad that was just the accusation or talking about infidelity. This is way bigger. Somebody just blew up the role side. Yes who would think oprah tyler. Perry could expose the monarchy. I thought she was ready. She was ready ready. This has been a two year plus experience for them and they finally got to tell their side of the story because as we heard she was silenced. She said she was silence. My was literally. I was just screaming at least with melissa heard it. I was like screaming. I just was in shock. I i thought she was gonna take off the gloves and do a fight but no no no. She had those gloves on. She was like. I don't know this phrase phrases that she dropped every bombshell that she possibly could have and it was one after another we kept saying like. That's the biggest. I mean we were just riveting. This is going to go down in history with all the other ones. I mean we're talking race. We talking family problems. Everything i was like. This is so good. Okay back to you how to do exactly the same. It was so shocking. Every single thing that came out of her mouth and you have to bear in mind. The royal family exists on this idea of mystery. We know a little bit about what's going on behind palace who we don't know everything. What meghan and harry yesterday to people who were in the inner sack who did is that exposed the lot they said. This is no fairytale. this is not what you've ever thought it was. This was awful. It was like being in a

I believe that there's the royal family trying to get back at her. I think I think that's what's going on. We'll marry Prince Harry. She bullied household staff and forced to AIDS to quit. Why would she go into the royal family and do that? There's nothing in her past and said she did that on any TV show. She worked on shows a crazy relationship with their dad. But I don't know. I think that would be. It would be remarkable. First of all, they could probably prove that You know, with cameras or lie detector tests or whatever, and this didn't come out. None of those rumors came out until this special came out the palace instead of ignoring the stories if it were gossip gave it extra weight were clearly very concerned, it said in a statement, adding, it's H R team would investigate. Harry and Meghan called the bullying allegations a smear campaign. It's certainly marks another low and their relationship. With the British media way We'll know what the British press could be like on. It was destroying my mental health like this is toxic. Yeah, so I didn't want any husband and what only father would do is like I need to get my family out of here. And he really he has been all of it. On his new life, because there's no way it after the special comes out. There's no way he's gonna welcome back into the broiled family Know where.

Holly Williams is in London with how this interview is likely to be received in Britain. Holly. Of course, we've all been watching here, and it doesn't seem like it's being very well received. So far. Good morning to you. Good morning.

Before Oprah’s Interview With Harry and Meghan, Royal Accusations Fly
"An escalating royal war of words. And a head of oprah winfrey's interview this sunday with prince harry and meghan markle with here simmons. It looked like a fairytale wedding but even then the duchess of sussex tells oprah winfrey. She felt she'd lost her freedom as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct. That is different than i think what people imagine it to be. It's really liberating able to have the right. And the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes meghan says. She wanted to sit down with okra before the big day. But the palace prevented.

"This the Memory Palace. I'm nate male. Earliest surviving record of an encounter between a European and the talking tropical. Bird comes from the travelogue of the Greek physician so tedious wrote about his time. In India with a marvelous read big bird who spoke the region's native language? Like a local. At least the doctors ears. He even managed to teach the presumed parakeet a bit of his own language. The physician didn't seem to quite understand that the bird didn't actually speak we think of it. It hadn't mastered human language of course but was rather simulating speech that to the bird the doctor's words while they were Greek to him increasing European contact with the warmer parts of the world's brought a modest stream of tropical birds to the trading ports of the Mediterranean. And after a while you're Greeks and Romans and Turks and and Whatnot Kim to understand at least some of the limits of what your average parent or Cockatoo could understand but the birds were prized as pets. The talking was maybe not actual talking but was still hilarious in their vibrant feathers. Their ability to learn tricks. Good Parrot was a good time and so exotic birds have been part of Western life for a couple of thousand years pliny. The elder kept one in his Roman apartments taught it to say Hail Caesar Henry. The eighth had a great parent. He trained to call to the boatmen on the other side of the river. Then they rover thinking they'd be getting a fair and then be annoyed when it was just the kings stupid bird again. And they'll these birds have been in their own exotic way to their own small degree ubiquitous for centuries seen in gilded cages and well appoint parlors in circus acts inside shows on the shoulders of peg leg. Pirates and as such have lived for Millennia and as the company of people despite their unique abilities. They can mimic human speech of all things. My border calling tap me on the needle. Let me know. It's time for dinner. But she has never once told me in my own language that you WANNA cracker. Very little systematic effort was ever made on the humans part to figure out what their bird friends. Were thinking the first person who took the time to really investigate just how smart these birds might actually be was zoologist named yet Medina Coats. She did studies animal cognition in the Soviet Union beginning right after the revolution. She's most famous for her work. Comparing chimpanzee cognition to that of human children but you also spent many years working with parrots and cockatoos determining whether they can differentiate colors. She found that they can not long after German research. Team determined that the brightest of talking birds could count could understand numbers up to about seven or eight depending on the species but like an African gray parrot countering the numbers nine or ten. The bird researchers can stopped after that and so the parrot. Cockatoo the McCall wonder in fascination for centuries we're thought of as little more than that objects good to look at fun to play with but at best kind of living automaton even scientists were making dramatic claims discoveries about primate intelligence and Dolphin Intelligence. We just assumed a bird was just bird brain that a parent can do little more than just parrot things back but we are currently living in an era in which incredible strides in our understanding of animal. Intelligence are being made all the time. The thing that all of us at least any of us out of like high school or so grew up knowing about the world that thing that separated we higher primates humans gorillas chimps and Bonobos was supposed to be our ability to use tools and that just doesn't true dolphins use tools elephants to occupy honors too. You can teach a rodent turns out to use a tiny rake to help it get sunflower seeds and there is no doubt you all. Just tell us that there are many more tool using creatures out there. We just haven't noticed now. Scientists are observing the lab. What pet owners people who've lived alongside these birds have known all along? They are really smart they can use and even make tools they understand object permanence as well as a four year. Old Human being not only can they count up to eight the understand the concept of zero. They can solve complex problems. Remember remarkable strings of commands in sequence. And they have memories that are likely as good as yours or mine. And what's more neuroscientist has begun to understand that the smallness of the bird brain a phrase literally thrown around to a dumb human is no impediment at all to hire cognition the nutshell on the nut sides bird brain is that scientists use to assume that a cerebral cortex what made mammals more intelligent than other creatures in since. Burns didn't have them. They couldn't be that SMART. We now know that they have different. Structures that serve the same function and may serve them just as well and we're left at this particular moment in history with scientific proof that they are extremely intelligent and capable of remarkable things but anyone who watched American TV in the mid nineteen seventy s already knew that original script. Fred was a minor when it came time to cast the beloved pet slash best friend slash occasional crime fighting sidekick Bahar edge but soft hearted. Detective Tony Baretta character of Fred. The bird became a triton sulphur-crested cockatoos. You can picture Fred even if you've never seen the show pure white with a crest women yellow feathers if you did want to show as millions did every week from nineteen seventy five nine hundred seventy eight off red hanging out on British shoulder while he staked out a bad guy in a sixty six impala even flying to the sink turning it on wet towel turning officing in flying back over to bread in applying the cold compress to his owners swollen. I after he'd gotten into some fisticuffs for the bad guy. Mostly you saw fred being say goodbye. Say Goodbye America fell in love with Fred or at least four cockatoos. Who Played Fred? Mostly it was one named Lala but there were three others herald and two. Who are both sweetheart? They'd split up the duties as needed. Some would be called into to the flying stunts others to do the talking but all of them were sent to events all over the country. See Fred from Beretta at the Holly Hill Mall Saturday. Got Fan mail. More even than his Co Star Robert Blake. Who's afraid for time? He'd only be remembered as the guy with bird although mostly he is now remembered as the guy who went on trial twice for allegedly killing his wife. But that is another story in the uncountable millennia that cockatoos have been on this planet. Surely one of the most significant events in history of that species came in that decision to make fred a Cockatoo. Instead of a Mynah bird because so enamored was the American public with the Fred that they saw on TV. The demand for cockatoos went crazy. Parents were hounded Santa was besieged by letters. Pet shop scrambled to track down syllable birds and soon. The federal government had a massive bird smuggling problem on. Its hands one. Los Angeles importer was nabbed with seven hundred thousand dollars worth of illegal Cockatoos Department of Agriculture Quarantine facilities set up to ensure that imported birds when bringing an avian diseases that could accidentally infect US poultry farms could disrupt the global food supply overwhelmed thousands upon thousands upon thousands of birds captured in Asia and Australia. We're dragged across the globe because of a cop show in watching at home. You never got to see the animal actors who played Fred vent their frustrations at being made to sit through take. After take and then attacking. The cameraman never saw them. Nip at Robert Blake weren't around when one of the Fred's threw a bottle at an assistant in the ABC publicity department. You just knew they could be trained to talk can be taught to do all sorts of tricks and behaviors that they didn't do in the wild. But you might not have known that they couldn't be trained not to squawk in screen for long stretches of time in the mornings and evenings might not have been told that that gets really loud really. Echoes in your apartment and so some unknowable. Number of TV fans fell in love with cockatoos and brought them into their homes in for so many it was one of the best decisions in their lives. They found in extraordinary. Pet and companion informed a mutually beneficial relationship that lasted for decades but others so many others failed to realize that to own a Cockatoo to own a Baretta. Bird was a lifelong commitment. The pets live as long as people and they are social just like people. They need attention. They need affection. They need stimulation any love in so some unknowable. Number of birds were abandoned in some of these birds but forty something years ago because somebody like Fred was really La and sometimes harold. Sometimes one of the sweethearts are certainly still alive. Newest Fred recently made news as its owner. Celebrated what they believe to be his hundredth birthday. Get a letter from the Queen. None of the actors who played Fred or survivor style. One pound died of natural causes during the second season of the show. The others live. Long ones performing. Ask Fred the famous cockatoo from TV. Various wild animal parks for years. Malla praised as the most gifted of the friends by his Co Star. Robert Blake Damn self like his Co Star. Robert Blink. The crime liners. He was bird nap from senior bird. Show in the dead of night but was found not long after it seems. The thieves abandoned him on the side of the road. And the guy pick up. Truck Spun in walking down the street. The bird seem so eager for human companionship over to the driver and hopped on his shoulders. And we are glad he was recovered. That we don't know if he ever recovered emotionally what he remembered about his peculiar life. There is still so much to learn about these birds. Maybe some will still be around. Scientists mix some big breakthrough. That might change the way people think about maybe treat the birds. I will leave you with one more Fred. This one was bought by a southern California family during the height of the Fred Fever and lived. What was by all accounts a pleasant life in their backyard? Along with a couple of parrots for thirty six years he can sing. Opera did a whole bit where he would have a one-way telephone conversation and he was loved by his owners but not long ago those owners needed to downsize and they had to sell their house move from their house in Carlsbad to a community of trailer homes in nearby oceanside there was going to be no room to keep the birds at their new place but the people who bought their old one lovely couple who themselves just retired and we're relocating from New Mexico. We're more than happy to take birds as part of the sale but before long Fred started acting out. The new owners can figure out how to make him happy. Configure out how to stop them from bullying his parents. Roommates in the husband had to start wearing a motorcycle helmet every time he went out to feed for it because the bird was always pecking him on the head. One day he strapped on the helmet went out to the cage in the second. He opened the door. Fred made a break literally through the coup leading the owners heartbroken but honestly a little relieved but then two months later he showed up again in the yard he had no interest in getting back in the cage but he was happy treats and for years after prayed would show up now and again you come by visit happiest can be his owner then ex owner. I suppose didn't even have to wear his helmet. And then he'd fly off where to the delight of many birdwatchers in the Carlsbad area..

He was met with laughter even from the jury. He was charged with vagrancy and larceny highway robbery and disturbing disturbing the peace and the judge informed the jurors that though the death penalty was typically reserved for murder and treason the various crimes of which the defendant was accused. Were so serious. There harm was so dreadful. If he was guilty he would be executed. Defendant didn't follow any of this didn't speak the language he had no understanding the fate that awaited also. He was a bull he was a male cow. So that's why I could've teased out some more played with your expectations. -tations bit longer but at some point. That would kind of hacky not to mention confusing when I told you as they will now that the judge informed the jury that after being executed the defendant defendant would be eaten that point. It would be kind of disrespectful both to you the listener into the bill because his life was indeed at stake back there in a makeshift courtroom in Ballpark in Waynesboro Pennsylvania in September of nineteen twenty four one of likely hundreds of trials conducted during the Nineteen Twenties and thirties in so-called courts of bovine justice officials at the US Department of Agriculture wanted to encourage dairy farmers and cattle ranchers to purchase purebred pedigree greet bulls with the goal of eventually eradicating also called Scrub Bulls. Basically the Matz of the Bovine World the belief was that purebred bulls produced airs that produce more milk or had bigger more delicious bodies and so they came up with the idea of holding literal show trials in farming and ranching communities around the country in which a single scrabble would be charged with grievous crimes namely that being a less than maximally profitable food product or breeding machine gene was tantamount to theft and over the course of the proceedings. The jury in the gathered audience would become convinced that their own scrambles had to go. It was a show an evening's entertainment. All Fun and Games unless you're the bull in unless you appeared behind the curtain mm-hmm the Department of Agriculture was far from the only scientific or governmental body promoting what it saw as the benefits of selective breeding eugenicist. Were also out to improve the human race by guiding evolution in part by reading the human population over time of people with undesirable genetic traits or at least traits. They believed to be genetic disabilities. Mental illness. Criminality alcoholism even poverty American scientists were at the forefront of this movement as were American state legislatures twenty nine of which pass laws allowing the four sterilization the people they deemed unfit to breed the fate that befell at least sixty four thousand Americans and when eugenic principles were embraced by the Third Reich. Well Anyway The AG Department thought that the latest scientific thinking should be shared heartland so a staff writer named Dallas Dhakal Burch of the USDA's Bureau of Animal Industry typed up a pamphlet titled outlined for conducting scrubs higher trials. It was written with a wit and imaginative flair. There's one would assume Mr Burge rarely got to deploy a staff writer for the USDA's Bureau of Animal Industry Twenty three pages that contain the entirety of Scrub Bull jurisprudence. Aw such as it was and lay out in easy to follow steps. How you too could hold your own scrub bull trial? such as the one convenient Waynesboro Pennsylvania in nineteen twenty four during the first weekend of fall held at seven pm so farmers and breeders in Boy Scouts and merchants in all of Franklin County. It seemed could come got to see it. Hundred seated in bleachers under electric lights on a purpose built platform aglow in the center field. There was music as per the pamphlet. It was good to have a ban on hand both to entertain the at Ds and assuming all went according to plan to play funeral dirge. After the verdict there was a judge. Judge Real on the book said this was better in real clerks in real bailiff people who knew their way around a courtroom. He knew how to hit their marks when they were the defendant through the gap in the bleachers to the place where he would stand in front of the bench and jury box as the judge laid out the charges against him. There was a script the judge would follow though he could improvise soften jokes in banter in local color. Were all strongly encouraged but when it got down to the bull. He should stick to the script late on thick that. The defendant is one of a gang of robbers which operates in Franklin County. During the whole of it's worthless career has been an ungrateful consumer a valuable vendor that the defending is an unworthy father of progeny. And so on something's something's optional. A hearse with black bunting the funeral oration clergyman to delivered. But there should be lawyers real ones and so there were in Waynesboro and witnesses local breeders farmers there to lend their expertise in backup the prosecution's claims that the defendant and the bull right there rope looped around its neck it soft ears for its tail flicking. Electric Lights reflected. It's wide round. Is The bull had caused his owner. Countless thousands in lost wages was in fact. Rank imposter danger to the heard. In by virtue of his nature menace not only to the prosperity of his owner but also the community at large. The defense attorneys would argue. This wasn't bull's fault that it was merely an accident of birth that had led him to sire offspring that would likely produce less milk. On average no sired by a purebred bull fewer fewer pounds of dress weight according to the testimony of the butcher to audience to whom dressed weight was familiar terminology. There were objections and sidebars ars gavels. Were gaveled as were only eight. There were examinations and cross examinations opening arguments and closing arguments. All all the things required for trial under the American judicial system except a jury of peers. Because who there could truly judge that one scrabble there to stand in for all Scrub Bulls born to pedigree parents who there could truly determined that bulls worth. Even the prosecution would concede he was merely being a ball doing both things but he was afforded the jury of peers to judge whether he did them. Well who might understand what boomer is to a Bo. What is the field and the feed? The buzzing fly the breeze the flicking tail. What is a life well lived in? That notion might seem absurd. Sure but more absurd than a bull on trial in the Ballpark and September evening in Pennsylvania because because eugenics was all their age. I am less sure. This trial ended in conviction as they all did. It's one of the steps laid out in the pamphlet. It ended in a barbecue which wasn't always the case. Sometimes it was a weenie roast. One Bull Minnesota was is dragged along to trial after trial. Once in Indiana the executed bull was placed in a black coffin and buried one time in July of nineteen eighteen. Thirty one bowl was convicted in a trial in front of Eight. Hundred people. In Neil's Ville Wisconsin but before he could be killed he somehow slipped away in ran off into the trees. Ni- propose we let this one scrabble standing for all scrub bulls though so a few of them exist now well well into the two thousand. They have indeed been bred in engineered and eaten out of the population. But let's let this one go to to run off into the trees. Let him keep on running to find pasture some tall grass in a life worth living. Whatever whatever them I mean.

Yeah I think that some of that might be a lifetime of noticing. I I think that that it is twelve years in parenthood And you know decade of my in our collective lives But when all comes down to it I think you know so many of the things that still that move me still move me at that always has always felt like at my best at my most sort of present at my most sort of DM Carping. I've always sort of had like a kind of like an active empathetic sense at my best. I felt sort. It's like a tuned to You know life moving around me and you know the struggles. They're in and that sort of thing and so what what you're noticing is you're noticing maybe the PRI- There's you're noticing justice deep awkwardness of the situation for everybody involved for the DJ for the people who might hear here Christmas songs in that setting for you for your daughter and for commuters and for the town and for the radio station his. There's there's a mismatch of subject and object here. That's just kinda rich. I think that makes a weird person to sort of find it and circle circle and deliver it. And you're just wonderfully weird from the beginning to the antics. I think he just getting better at being weird that way I think yeah I don't know if you I mean maybe I think I do object to my research the word we are no no no no. I'm happy happy to be weird. I think that that if I'm going for anything the story after story in it's certainly active in this story but really in kind of any of them. If there's a feeling I want someone to get I want someone to recognize after listening to to that story or during listening to that story that there live right then are themselves historical that by listening to a story about going into dreamland at Coney Island Back in the day Back before it burned down you are thinking about the differences between now and then and then you're thinking about your own experiences M- moving through the world sort of a a deep belief that long ago is sort what is like now. Yeah just you're like that. I mean it's it's from it comes from like a simple desire like it's almost like a yoga practice with me that it just does me good to remember that we're all GonNa die. It does me good. Is it also true that Cleopatra was probably a woman that if you met her today you would recognize her. Yeah and you know she would be familiar to you yet. I mean some sort of like Olien. Yeah I mean if there's another mantra I need to tell myself fits that David Letterman's a real guy. So Abraham Lincoln is to you know like that I find the coming back to this. Yeah I mean I find it I find it personally valuable. I mean that's kind of the way the stories are written you. You introduce a metaphor in the beginning. You keep coming back to small like you haven't done. You haven't done your two hour special direct for your Warren piece What's Nice about small feel? I mean there's a couple of things like in my twenties. I remember going to a show where I saw favorite band play and and the first three songs are just incredible in the hairs up on the back of your neck and your so happy to be in the room with them and you can't believe they're playing that song but eventually like you start to feel like can eat P or the person in front of you is too tall or you know. End The hairs in the back of your neck starting to go back down and on some level I really did. Fetish is smallest smallest cyclic. I wanted to tell stories that got in and out so fast that the hair and everyone down in the back of your neck. It's interesting because they said of James Thurber the humor writer for the New Yorker Writers like him who did small afraid of schism quoting afraid of losing themselves in the larger flight of two volume novel or even a one volume Liam novel these authors stick to short accounts of their misadventures because they never gets so deep into them. If they can't feel they can't get out. Oh that's interesting yeah. I wouldn't say that to me to me that that I mean some of it is is like some of his simple like Boorda like I like to. I like to do a thing thing and move on But the other thing is that I think that like wile e. It's an incredible experience to have like a journey with a long novel or or to watch the Irishman in one sitting or whatever it might be for me when I engage with a piece of art when I engage with song when engage with the Irishman a you know in one sitting sending whatever it is all I want is the feeling of of I want to be woken up. You know like life. Just move so fast. There's so much shit you have to deal with. It is just I. I want something to cut through the were in sputter of the day to remind me that you have this day right here. Like what are you going to do with the rest of the day so catch telling sure you can fit it into other people's Day exactly like there's something. There's something as simple as that that like I. It's like a pop song. The three and a half minute pop song can change your day. Can Re frame the way that you think about your relationship can activate a desire that you didn't know you had in that is such a powerful. Aw Experience and I find that adrenaline shot of that. I guess I'm wondering I e proud because you you you're the doctor who shot the journal and into the audience like yeah. I've only got six minutes but yeah how just from like a practical like doing the work thing like I love the challenge of that. I love love to to try to figure out. Oh I just watch a seventeen hour documentary but there's one fact in it that like move me so much that I want to find a way to build a story around it but what I'm really trying to do is like I felt that way. Once I earned that feeling over seventeen hours. Is there a way that I can give give this to you and seven minutes because those those things that shake us up the POPs on that comes on the right time the the fascinating thing that you see on the subway on the way home that you rush home to tell your wife about or that totally shook you out of the Weird Malays you had. Those are the moments that we remember those. The things that we learned from those are the things that allow us to connect beautiful really beautiful. Yeah the ability to do that. The kind of goofy kind of crass way of saying it is like I got a bunch of hypodermic needles. I'm just I'M GONNA line them up and if you need you need your day change you can turn on the memory palace like in some ways that the idea of like like a unit of emotion. I'll give you a short fast. fucking hi yes or we're low.

"You you know like like I I mean actually I think it was like literally the next week He's like hey hey we have a fairly sudden paced euro on it was it. It was essentially you know he says. Hey we need someone to fill in as you know as a producer you know booking phone calls cutting some tape Can you come up and and and then I did and so then I was. Ah for a year or so I was a part time Fill in radio producer slash Restaurant Valet is wait a second. So you're now actually getting good enough enough of this that you are unambiguously loving what you're doing totally and loving yourself for doing it. Yeah exactly now have no self low. What about other about the usual story so here is at some point? You then do something terribly wrong and you think valet parking is probably going to be my future and I'm lucky if I can still turn key in addition nations. That didn't happen to you now. It was it was really. I sometimes think like like if I'm ever started giving like life advice to someone that is wondering about the career I think about an image that I thought about it at the time which is essentially like what you like. I had a real problem one of those problems where I have a lot of difficulty choosing like. Oh I I'm I like. There's a lot of different things I'm interested in You know I was like A dilettante where I would be a little bit good at a a number of different things but did not have the discipline to get particularly good. Any of them did not have the obsession in radio. I found a thing that allowed me to be a dilettante. There's a set of skills that are highly specific And in one needs to lean into and really pushed toward and really develop an earn but beyond that the gig is knowing a little bit about a lot. But what I tell people and what I thought about the time is that you know what you kind kind of need. If you have trouble choosing think of it like a flashlight you want to cast a beam. You're not gonNA be able to do anything outside of the beam on either side but if you walk generally in that the direction you're going to be safe and I knew that I was walking in the right direction like I know like I knew there'd be challenges ahead in terms of like well maybe I should go off and do documentary films or I. There'd be many choices in conflicts in hurdles ahead but I knew that fundamentally I was walking direction that was correct for me and and and you kept walking. Yeah how many years from now from the now. You're doing the first gigs for this one. And that one. And it's feeling good and and feeling right and now many palaces how far away from you now four years ahead of you know. It's probably about seven or eight. I set off to kind of be an artist in the sort of audio field. And do you know this American life like or you make beautiful things essentially and I ended up essentially becoming a journalist. You know like after You know after September eleventh. You know I start working for a news program at W. B. U. R.. And then I move out here to essentially test out my long distance centralization ship with my now wife MOVE OUT HERE TO LA and start working for marketplace and learning ton. And it's a it's a great show in its in again again. It's very gratifying. To be on like a national show and feel like I've made it in that way and was. was you know tap very early and given the opportunity to be an editor and was essentially very good editor but it turns out when you're very good editor No one wants to let you do anything anything else. Because I think that that's sort of a rare creature in a newsroom. And so I wanted to. You know beyond air wanted to make my own thing and was having a hard time doing that and then eventually found my way into freelancing for NPR and found people there that that liked me doing that thing and while they're like really did find that like. Oh even though. I'm doing this you Jonas Jonas brothers story or interviewing Jon Bon Jovi or Interviewing Delilah the light. FM DJ That that these czar human stories that people usually treat these as business stories or as you know perfunctory entertainment updates but if I can treat all of these like these are are stories about people with drives in wants it you know in failures in their pass and successes. Now I can make something. You know. Lovely here you'll you'll meet somebody who's successful in entertainment business and you look at the cracks in them things that now. Just look for. I look for now mostly I look for for for what it means to be them. But you're actually still puzzling through this David. Letterman was exactly before for his part. Jon Bon Jovi says that he's made a slightly Twang up Jon. Bon Jovi record. He says you'll always be that guy from New Jersey writing about Tommy from the docks and Gina from the diner member. They might be now in two thousand eight when when you sing a song. Like living on a prayer twenty one years later it marks memories in people's lives. They come to see they think about where they were first time. They heard it or that first kisser they got married to her they played it for their kids. Now that they're old enough you see in the eyes of the public that are singing Bhakti at the top of their lungs in those stadiums. You know that you you touched somebody buddy and they in turn touched you next year. Bon Jovi will be eligible for the rock and Roll Hall of fame. He admits that he liked to get in. But he knows he's never been a critic's favourite but twenty five years into it he still selling records. He's never been a nostalgia act. He's got the biggest tour of the.

"One of the best things about going on Radio Laboratory. This summer was getting to know several the folks who work there and it turns earns out every multiple conversations with host Robert Krulwich about storytelling in life is a wonderful addition to one year and he and I thought it would be fun fun to have one more conversation on air for you and talk about the Memory Palace and how it got started we start in classic radio lab fashion with a couple. The people in the middle of some other conversation on microphones before the main conversation actually starts here about the glass of water. I spilled on my laptop last week on the positive side. It's everything is now up and running eleven hundred dollars later which was a whole thing. Yes yes and then Robert asked me about a time time in my early twenty s when I was trying to figure out what to do when a band I was in broke up it was one of the sort of smart life. Things I did was a really sort of sat down in kind of approach to existential early and really kind of thought to myself. Like what is it about this thing that I love like. What is replicable applicable here? So you're making a list of things I innately like to do moods I particularly want to be in environments I particularly want it to adopt thought. Now what is what. What kind of job does this stuff? Yeah and when I really thought about like what. What's the what would the dream for this thing be? Well well dream would be to to to be an artist with an audience. The dream would be to be able to travel and have elite varied life and and have adventures cheers. I was really like some of fishing for something that might do that. Right around the same time Rhode Island got its first official non on repeater public radio stations. But did you hear something I did at one of our show. Today is the story of somebody who tried to get closer to the real thing and tried and why in the end it did not go to this. American life story done by Kelly mcevers here in Chicago and started to get interested in stories that she was hearing about girl gang bomb. WHO's now friend of mine? Who What who was clearly clearly appear on air like she was clearly someone in my cohort? She was clearly Just you smell that you could just you could tell by the voice you could tell by the references as you know you could just tell by the spirit of thing and she was doing A story about girl gangs in Chicago. There are two things about it that struck me one was that it was beautiful. I I was moved. It was this American life firing on all cylinders. It's something I'd never heard before and been exposed to in the other thing was Kelly was having an adventure you know. Kelly was meeting interesting people. Kelly had stories to tell when she came home. Kelly was putting themselves in positions that she would never stumble into who otherwise and that was very exciting. The other thing is a two part story that I remember listening to on a rainy November number evening in a particular rainy Point in my life On all things considered about an An accidental death breath at a housing project in Chicago. Where a I believe? A an older brother was looking after his younger brother and end somehow younger brother fell out the window. And it was about these kids in their tragedy in about You know the system letting them down and the whole thing thing was so moving in so beautiful the lesson that it showed me was that audio storytelling on the radio had the power our to reach into your life and Change Your Day in the same way that like the perfect song at the perfect time. Can you know that that yeah and and it was that a musician as as a broken musician he thought well maybe I could play this other kind of music the moment like that does your inner part. Say yes I can. Of course I can or I am a hired worker. I I will figure that out I will beg and squeeze and Cajole an plea and pray and maybe someone will give me a nip like what mood were you in the blank I can was. Maybe I can question mark like I really did not understand that the people who did cool cool things you know the novelist the musicians you know the people in history. We're real people until I was about twenty one years old. I never met anyone who didn't story people like they were like. Yeah I don't know I know the David Letterman was like just like a dude on this fundamental level like. I've never met anyone that did that my who did you know when you were twenty ladies know any reporters I knew I knew no one at all and you know in my parents were very much like you can do whatever you want like. They you know like like like go out and conquer the world but at the same time you know they had a very limited experience of the world like they they they grew up on on the opposite sides of of the wrong side of the tracks in Providence My you know my dad was from the really poor poor part of Federal Hill in Providence. My mom was from the slightly less poor part of Federal Hill in Providence. They both went to Rhode Island College. Or you know which is you. Know half an hour walk from their home and graduating from there And then both taught there. They both taught at Rhode Island both taught my. They both taught special. Ed Azran Allen College like when they retired from Rhode Island college except for like a couple of a couple of years when my when my mom was a stay at home mom and my dad taught in providence public schools. Probably three or four years. they were on campus. Abbas from like nineteen sixty three until their retirement But there is something about growing up there that if you want it to climb up the hill in that town to the top were the spire buildings are you could go meet these. Like wonder Kin Brown and Rizzi kids. who were like all know everything and no everybody and shopped at blooming? Exactly places is like barneys maybe even not so that so that I mean in that is actually the kind of thing no any of them. That's what he started to change things for me like when I was sort of in my early twenties and I was actually finishing up at Rowan College after like where my parents taught so I could go for two hundred sixty dollars a semester After a very circuitous UNDERGRAD. Experience and Syrup playing in bands and like like going to shows and meeting these brown kids kids Who who Felt felt like they were going to inherit the world and I was starting to realize that they were probably right through a combination of like of playing in bands and then like opening for bands. That I sort sort of worship and then realized like Oh these people kind of stink. Like they're not all that cool or their science nerds like or that was just the period when I started to be like. Oh wait these people can are doing these things like maybe I can also do these things In so now I I listened to these stories and they thought like this feels like a thing that I ought to be able to aspire to. This isn't playing shortstop for the Red Sox. This isn't kind of things we do. You want to be like Mozart in the afternoon and yet she now I I wanted to music or I wanted to make beautiful things like I wanted to move people in the car like I wanted to change people. I wanted to change people's Day getting wannabe want to be a journalist. IRA- IRA- Glassy and manner. It wasn't the news report. It wasn't Were reporter It was the you you know. Tell me the small beautiful story and the smart thing that I did was I got a call from a guy that this skymark Naven who works at here and now Wb you are and They were looking to interview something about An art action that was happening happening in Providence. A bunch of artists taken nat in the Providence Journal to save dive bar which is an important thing in the music scene and I was nominated as its spokesperson because I was the person who cleaned up the best best. Meaning you put on a tie. Yeah so you're there's a rabble-rousing group of people who are taking over bars in providence. Somebody in Boston says maybe we should cover the story about the rabble rousing people taking over by providence and you're the spokesperson for the rabble rabble rousing people taking over Barzan. Yes they say they say who will sound best on the phone and give it to me and so when they called and they said Hey. Can we talk about the rabble-rousing I just I had the instinct to say you can but can I come up next week and talk to you about working there and whoa very kindly the guy I said. Yeah yeah sure And the scene with our talk exactly so this right and so the senior producer was was like he said Yeah. You sure. got a half an hour. If you can come up here next Thursday. I'll I'll show you around and whatever but I just at that point just came really prepared like I had stories pitch. I had learned how to use pro tools. I had my microphone. I had my kit. You know I like Bush so you weren't just going to go on a tour. You were going now milk. This is going to try to milk it. As far as as far as they could and he was surprised and impressed rest and then he said MONTHS AGO interview people at that upcoming Ballroom dancing tournament and try to put it into try to ah pulled together and And it was on Sinement Yep is on the a couple weeks later and then it was. Then it's filling jobs. And how long did it take you to learn the pro tools and by the microphone and practice in the living room so that you ready for the moment he said go over there and cover the dance the such and such like how. How many weeks that you put into it? It was it was it was it was a fair amount of days It was it was also a lot of borrowing. It was a lot of you know like I had a microphone and You know the recording equipment stuff is easy to you know from was was just lying around from from music stuff. I got a copy. Whatever the free pro tools version was and I just basically knew that I had to get myself good enough to be able to to fake it till I made it like that? If he gave good was how good what was your first fake. It was pretty good but mostly but it was also but I also took it really seriously when I got the chance like I was just knew that I needed to be able to look the guy in the eye and say I can and do this and then and then learn to do it after. And where were you when it aired exactly where you I believe believe I had woken up late The show airs at noon. I think I woke up an hour before because there was twenty four and and I was on my way to my valet. Parking job at Angelo's Italian restaurant in Federal Hill And Major. I stuck around to hear here it but did you feel like yourself. I honestly you know I really. I felt a great deal of pride because as a person in who didn't know that the people who did things that I thought were cool real people and was just learning that and honestly could not figure out. What are we GONNA do? Couldn't figure out how anyone sort of did anything interesting and so hearing a story on the radio that I kind of made made by Kind of charm my way into In then knuckled down to do and then then you know did the work enough so that like a little bit of kind of natural aptitude and kind of like talent was was able to kind of like clearly make things shine enough to to get get on get on the air Felt like a real team it. It really did. Like I felt Eliza doolittle kind of achievement. Did you feel like you had just become a gentleman. Yeah you feel like you just become an artist or did you just feel like you. Just become one big step towards something you wanted to be. I think that I felt a little bit like I had stopped. Stopped being a fuck up. I think that I think that it was essentially like like those this like like I may have just forced. Open the door for me after. Like like bump in my head against walls for a while there's something felt was very empowering about having dreamt of a thing in thought idly about a thing for about a year and then like figured out like a plan. I'm going to get my foot in the door. Got My foot in the door in a way that like you know like showed some initiative in some pluck but at the same time like I had also sort of earned I had done and something interesting in the rabble-rousing art world like I like I like by following the extra Qaeda's path like it was able to kind of like look back on you know what what otherwise could've thought felt like aimless youth and been like now know the skills that I learned in being in a band and being on the art scene and getting stuff done for myself in this other way these are professional skills and I've just kind of proved it to myself okay. How long does it take from that? First performance to you actually sort of locking in A version of yourself some would pay for It was it was pretty quick..

Chris Pippen apples prepared with a French flair for Cossiga techniques and recipes sauces. He'd so enjoy enjoyed during his years in Paris. As an envoy of the newly United States prepared alongside French ingredients almonds anchovies cheese and raisins and nectarines Koreans in musters of varying shades. In Tang dinner at Monticello would started for. The guests would often find their host already in the dining room. It's walls painted chrome yellow. Jefferson would be reading a book pulled from the shelves by the fireplace philosophy. Zoology architecture texture religion politics the natural scientists who still very Jefferson. The contents of the books would spill out into the dinners themselves. He I love delivery table free-flowing conversations tails well told vigorous debate ideas presented in refined all helped by the wine that flowed live freely to shipped over from Europe or does and Maderas Chianti riesling grapes. That grew on fog hung hills that roll down to the Rhine by the pictures on those yellow walls. Copies of old masters Grand European landscapes alongside American ones Niagara the natural the bridge harpers ferry. Just as grand. We're meant to start the conversation valued so on travel on geology. And Trade on America's Carr's places and its place in the world because these dinners always so very Jefferson. We're so American by his design shooing the British formality. It never ending courses rule bound in ritualized. Hoity toity instead. Appetizers main dishes would be laid out on the table. Diners honors could choose what to eat with. What in win when they wanted more more courses more French wine. There were more of Jefferson's designs in the dining room in Monticello were amenities of his own. Invention special dumb waiters by which bottles editions could come up from the kitchen in the cellar or be sent back down special. Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work. Made the dinner out of sight out of mind so talk of freedom could flow at Monticello which was so. Very Jefferson Deficit.

This is the memory palace amid the mail. I write this to remember that this morning. The November morning in two thousand nineteen. I was driving my daughter to school and she wanted to listen to coast one of three point five in the late. FM Station in Los Angeles Police Christmas music around the clock beginning earlier and earlier every year as we were driving in Hollywood through a morning. Fog that estranged from this kinda year in hung with ash from forest fires somewhere which is the norm for this time of year on the radio after. Let it Snow Ellen. K The super super smooth companionable. Dj came onto. Tell us that there had been a shooting at a high school in Santa Clarita but thirty five miles north that it was being treated as an active shooter situation situation that she would keep updated. She promised through tears and then said something. About what an odd thing. It was to have to tell her audience. This parents kids on their way to school. People who live in Santa Clarita or who's grandkids do or people who grandkids don't but still and people who are just out driving spark that's delivery trucks super shuttle vans bound for Burbank airport. She said what an odd thing it was to have to share this horrible news with all of us when people had turned on the station just to hear heart warming warming Christmas music and then they played. Oh Tanenbaum the version from the Charlie Brown Christmas special the saddest version and she probably didn't plan it. No one it was probably pre-programmed but there was and then there was an ad for a Honda dealership and then one for personal injury attorney and then she was back your voice breaking breaking talking of Gurneys in stretchers in first responders at a high school in the senselessness of it all in hugging your children. Extra tight tonight and talking talking briefly of her own son soon off to college of her own nest soon to be empty in record this to say something about gun control or hugging in your children though. Please go do both but to merely remember into note for the future when I when we when they in the future future think back on this time when kids shot kids at school that this one. Dj had to talk through tears. Her shaking head her thrown up hands then had to play the happy songs giveaway family. Four packs of tickets to Disneyland in California adventure to experience the most magical time of year with celebration throughout both parks now through January sixth sex and she had to keep working when the world felt like it was falling apart that she did her job so well so I record this episode merely to note for the future future that this was just what mornings felt like sometimes in two thousand nineteen just went on while the world felt like was falling apart and I release this episode with the sense that the best perhaps one can hope for. Is that people in the future. We'll think about the history that we are living through now that they will look back from future when kids don't kill each other at school in wonder how those people back then could have lived like that but for now. Don't let it snow.
