Set on a prison planet, this one dials forced proximity up to 11, and does the excellent job of answering just how horrifying a world can you write a romance in? The answer is very. Very horrifying. We talk about sex and consent and strength and humanity and how love blooms in even the darkest of places. Is it possible we needed this book this week?

L'odio per i cattolici alle origini degli Usa

ARTICOLI di Rino Cammilleri

TESTO DELL'ARTICOLO ➜ www.bastabugie.it/it/articoli.php?id=7066L'ODIO PER I CATTOLICI ALLE ORIGINI DEGLI USA di Rino CammilleriI Padri Pellegrini, ritenuti paleofondatori degli Stati Uniti, erano protestanti così fanatici da venire scacciati dai protestanti egemoni, che mal sopportavano chi era più fanatico di loro. E i Pilgrim Fathers traversarono l'oceano per trovare una terra in cui uno fosse libero di fare il fanatico come gli pareva. Da qui un Paese letteralmente fondato sulla libertà di religione. Naturalmente, le cose non andarono esattamente nel modo semplicistico con cui le abbiamo tratteggiate, ma nel complesso sì.I Fondatori posero fin da subito delle eccezioni: libertà per tutti, tranne che per i pagani e i papisti. I pagani erano gli indiani, che nell'America del Sud si chiamavano indios. Questi, gli spagnoli li evangelizzarono come da patto col Papa, che aveva dato ai Re Cattolici il permesso di colonizzare il Nuovo Mondo purché si facessero carico della cristianizzazione dei nativi. E così fu, tanto che, ancora oggi, i nomi delle città statunitensi nei territori sottratti al Messico già spagnolo armi in pugno suonano San Antonio, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Corpus Christi, Santa Fe, San Diego, San José, San Francisco, eccetera. Tutte sorte attorno a missioni francescane, le più delle quali create dal beato Junìpero Serra (la cui statua in Campidoglio è l'unica id un frate papista). I Conquistadores, controllati a vista dai loro cappellani, sposarono donne azteche e incas, tanto che oggi il Sudamerica è completamente meticcio.AL NORD IL TRIONFO DEI WASPNon così fu al Nord, dove, Pocahontas a parte, i coloni non si mischiarono con i nativi. Infatti, oggi, nel melting pot americano l'etnia pellerossa è ridotta a pochi esemplari. L'altro divieto era per il papismo, et puor cause: il protestantesimo era appunto una separazione indignata dalla casa - madre cattolica, da Lutero in poi presentata come sentina di ogni errore e corruzione. Perciò ci vollero un paio di secoli prima che i cattolici venissero ammessi alla vita comune. Finché la maggioranza fu wasp (white, anglo - saxon, protestant), l'ostracismo nei confronti dei cattolici permase (il KuKluxKlan annovera i papisti, con gli ebrei e i neri, tra i nemici della nazione americana: il governo si decise finalmente a prendere provvedimenti quando nell'indiana vide scontrarsi per vari giorni studenti cattolici dell'Università di Notre Dame e militanti del KKK). Uno dei motivi per cui gli Usa con la guerra del 1848 non si annessero l'intero Messico, fu che l'immissione di milioni di cattolici negli States avrebbe sovvertito gli equilibri di un Paese wasp. Basti pensare agli irlandesi arruolatisi per fame nell'esercito americano: trattati con disprezzo perché papisti, nel 1848 molti di loro passarono coi messicani (cattolici e antischiavisti) e costituirono il battaglione San Patricio. Quelli che sopravvissero furono marchiati a fuoco sulla faccia e impiccati come traditori (a questo e a quel che segue abbiamo dedicato specifiche puntate de Il Kattolico). Ci volle tempo e la pazienza dei missionari papisti, che aprivano scuole (boicottate) anche agli indiani e ai neri. Santi come Catherine Drexel, una convertita che diede fondo alle sue grandi ricchezze per assistere gli ultimi (il celebre vibrafonista Lionel Hampton, bambino nero di strada, dovette alle sue suore istruzione ed educazione). Ci vollero figure come suor Blandina Segale, mandata nel selvaggio West, che lo stesso Billy The Kid rispettava. Una vita di contrasti, perché ovunque andasse i wasp le vietavano l'insegnamento o l'assistenza ospedaliera. O padre Giuseppe Bixio, fratello del garibaldino Nino: gesuita, si accorse subito che gli indiani erano trattati come subumani e ne prese le difese. Alla Guerra di Secessione si arruolò come cappellano tra i Confederati e si rese protagonista di imprese leggendarie. A guerra finita scampò alla vendetta nordista perché aveva sempre soccorso i feriti di ambedue i lati.GLI ITALIANI E I LATINOSProprio quella guerra portò altri cattolici in terra americana. Si trattava dei borbonici sconfitti, cui venne offerto l'arruolamento nei ranghi della Confederazione, a corto di uomini rispetto al più popoloso Nord. Quella nostra gente si ritrovò sconfitta di nuovo e per avere combattuto per il Sud. Ma, non avendo dove andare, rimase in terra americana. Così come gli unici due sopravvissuti alla celebre battaglia di Little Big Horn, quando gli indiani sterminarono il Settimo Cavalleria di Custer: Giovanni Martini, sergente trombettiere, e il tenente Carlo Di Rudio. Il primo era stato mandato, inutilmente, a cercare soccorsi. L'altro era un ex carbonaro, compagno di quel Felice Orsini che aveva attentato alla vita di Napoleone III. Scappato in America, come tanti altri cospiratori europei era stato arruolato e mandato negli avamposti più lontani (così il governo si liberava delle teste calde esperte nell'arte di cospirare: non si sapeva mai). Lentamente, l'immigrazione dei latinos, soprattutto messicani, fece il resto portando alla situazione odierna, con il cattolicesimo divenuto numericamente la prima religione negli States, se si tiene conto che il protestantesimo è parcellizzato in miriadi di denominazioni diverse, ciascuna delle quali sempre in procinto di sdoppiamento per scisma.Si aggiunga un altro non trascurabile fenomeno: le conversioni. Tutto l'Ottocento vide un flusso pressoché continuo di conversioni di protestanti al cattolicesimo, laddove il percorso era praticamente inesistente. Personaggi leggendari come Buffalo Bill, Toro Seduto, Kit Carson e Alce Nero si fecero battezzare cattolici. Ciò era dovuto anche allo spettacolo dell'abnegazione del clero cattolico nei confronti dei più sfortunati, indipendentemente dal colore della pelle. Nella Guerra Civile le suore cattoliche si erano prese instancabilmente cura dei feriti di entrambe le parti. E, a guerra finita, il Papa Pio IX aveva mandato la sua benedizione con un rosario al Presidente sudista Jefferson Davis in carcere. Moltissimi nativi e altrettanti ex schiavi neri poterono studiare e acquisire dignità grazie alle istruzioni che la Chiesa cattolica, pur tra mille difficoltà e boicottaggi, aveva fatto sorgere in terra americana. Si pensi anche all'assistenza agli immigrati europei, di cui santa Francesca Cabrini è di fatto il simbolo. Con la crisi della patata del 1847 e le spietate politiche economiche degli occupanti inglesi, un milione di irlandesi morirono di fame e un altro milione sbarcò in America. Tutti cattolici. Poi venne il turno dei contingenti italiani (negli anni a cavallo del Novecento, più di cinque milioni di nostri connazionali sbarcarono a Ellis Island in fuga dalla fame in cui l'Italia "piemontese" li aveva precipitati). Il tutto mentre non si arrestava il fenomeno delle conversioni individuali a cui abbiamo accennato. Mostri sacri dell'intrattenimento come Bing Crisby (è sua la canzone più venduta di sempre, White Christamas), John Wayne, Gary Cooper (una figlia suora), Jane Russel, Loretta Young, Dolores Hart ("fidanzatina" cinematografica di Elvis Presley: finì monaca di clausura), ma anche Babe Ruth (il più grande giocatore di tutti i tempi dello sport più americano che ci sia, il baseball, il generale Lewis Wallace (l'autore di Ben Hur), e si potrebbe continuare per pagine. Infatti, ci vorrà un'altra puntata.

Years before Adolph Hitler obtained power, and in the decades before the Third Reich brought “the manufacture of mass death to its pitiless consummation” in the words of the late military historian John Keegan, the seeds were planted of America's callous and ineffective response to the Nazi persecution of Europe's Jews. As director Ken Burns shows in his searing new documentary “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” hostility to immigration coexisted with America's reputation as a land of opportunity during an era that saw millions of Europeans make their way to Ellis Island. But a long-simmering nativist backlash combined with the junk science of eugenics to produce federal legislation in 1924 severely restricting emigration to the United States based on nation of origin. These quotas, which enjoyed widespread public and political support, would prevent hundreds of thousands of Jews from escaping Europe when they had a chance. In this episode, author and historian Rebecca Erbelding, an expert on the U.S. response to the Nazi genocide at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and an independent scholarly advisor to the Burns documentary, discusses the ways in which antisemitism, nativism, and isolationism contributed to the failure to save more Jewish lives. Americans expressed revulsion at Nazi violence, but the outrage did not lead to a more welcoming attitude toward refugees.

We are thrilled to welcome Professors Ran Abramitzky and Leah Boustan to the podcast to discuss their groundbreaking new book on immigration in America! Ran is the Stanford Federal Credit Union Professor of Economics at Stanford and Leah is a Professor of Economics at Princeton, where she also serves as the Director of the Industrial Relations Section. They are on the forefront of economic research on immigration and just published Streets of Gold: America's Untold Story of Immigrant Success. In this episode, we break down the three immigration myths that the book addresses. First, there is the false story about the speediness of the American Dream and how class mobility occurs (or doesn't) over generations. Second, the data tell a counterintuitive story about how the “Ellis Island generation” of immigrants compares to current immigrants to the United States. Third, a common political argument is that new immigrants make present Americans worse off economically – a theory the data debunk. Beyond these myths, we also touch on several other topics. Professors Abramitzky and Boustan walk through their methodology and the data they collected from the census and Ancestry.com. They also explain why the immigrant story has been consistent for generations in America, despite the fact that immigration today occurs in a vastly different America with modern technology, more resources, and immigrants from new countries. The story that the book tells also is one of optimism, which differs from that told by historians. Much to Sam's delight, we discuss why and how the history and economics disciplines tell different stories about American immigration. Lastly, we talk about common political criticisms of immigration and how this book deals with those, especially when opposition comes from emotional arguments rather than facts.

Historically, it's been home to generations of immigrants (being called the Ellis Island of the West), serving as home to some of the largest populations of Japanese and Jewish residents in Southern California.

Carl Paul came to America through Ellis Island in New York from a country few in Flint, Michigan, know much about. North Macedonia, officially the Republic of North Macedonia, is a country in Southeast Europe. In 1991, the tiny country became recognized as one of the successor states of Yugoslavia. Today, the Slavic country is a member of NATO.Carl and many of his fellow Macedonian immigrants eventually found their way to Flint. They came from a small mountain village in southern Macedonia near the border with Greece.   The immigrants of Bouf, Macedonia, have contributed mightily to the Flint economy, culture, and business leadership.Once in Flint, Michigan, Carl Paul and his partner, Angelo Nikoloff, established one of the most loved and iconic restaurants in mid-Michigan. While the Flint-style Coney Island hot dog was not the invention of the two entrepreneurs, they certainly contributed to making a part of the culinary culture of the Flint region.  Ironically, in Macedonia, the coney island hot dog, Flint style, is nowhere to be found on the menu.    Our podcast episode guest, Karen Paul Holmes, grew up in Flint, her father, Carl Paul, and Angelo Nikoloff were the original partners of Angelo's Coney Island. While a teenager, Karen waitressed at her father's famous restaurant during summer school recess. Karen shares the story of her hardworking Flint family, whose life work defines Flint almost as much as trucks and cars made in the city.Karen reads three of her most endearing poems. The first poem recalls her father returning home for family dinners after a long work day at Angelo's Coney Island. The second poem is an emotional tribute to her father and his leaving Bouf, Macedonia, for a better life in the United States. The last is a poem of beautiful prose about the Great Lakes and cherry trees and the beauty of her father's newfound home, Michigan. Karen provides a near-recipe for Flint Style Coney Sauce in her second poetry collection, No Such Thing as Distance (Terrapin, 2018), which contains poems about growing up in Michigan and her parents' emigration to Flint from Macedonia and Australia.

With composition titles like In the Cause of the Free, Ellis Island: The Dream of America, and Balance of Power, it's easy to tell Peter Boyer has more than a casual interest in American history. In fact, it's something that's inspired him throughout his career. But the Grammy Award-nominated composer-conductor isn't merely looking to memorialize America's past — he wants his music to connect with people today, and make a meaningful contribution to the musical legacy of the United States. "There is an American sound in an orchestra that a composer who is American can attempt to deliver," Boyer says on the latest episode of the Classical Post podcast. "There is a tradition or a legacy that one can hear in the music of composers who preceded me that I think is evident in [my] music. Hopefully there's a tangible connection to that American symphonic tradition that comes through when one hears this music. That is the hope." Although Boyer speaks with bashful humility about his work, it's clear his desire to connect with today's listeners has become a reality. One of the most frequently performed American orchestral composers, Boyer's music has been performed more than 600 times by 200-plus orchestras around the world. Ellis Island alone has received 250 performances, including a filmed concert broadcast nationwide on PBS's Great Performances series. And his latest album for Naxos American Classics, Peter Boyer: Balance of Power, represents a new contribution to the American symphonic tradition. Featuring Boyer on the podium leading the London Symphony Orchestra, the album showcases eight of his most recent orchestral works, including Fanfare for Tomorrow, which was commissioned for President Biden's 2021 inauguration. In this episode, we talk more about the new Naxos album and what it takes for Boyer to put self-criticism aside and send a new work into the world. Plus, he shares his lifelong love for English Breakfast tea, the best place in LA for classic Italian food, and what it was like writing a "humorous symphony" for Henry Kissinger.

Greg Graziano joins Steve Jaxon and Dan Berger on this encore presentation. The CWC folks are gone fishin' this week and there is no new show for today, Sept. 7, 2022. So this podcast episode is a repeat of a show that originally aired on KSRO on Dec. 30, 2020, featuring Greg Graziano, the winemaker for the Graziano Family of Wines.  Greg Graziano, winemaker for The Graziano Family of Wines the joins Steve Jaxon and Dan Berger on California Wine Country today. His grandfather, Vincenzo Graziano, landed on Ellis Island in 1907 and worked his way across the country to Mendocino where he bought 100 acres with his future brother-in-law and began planting grapes, two years before Prohibition. During Prohibition they did whatever they could to survive, selling what wine was legal to sell. Then they sold grapes to Gallo and Italian Swiss Colony, and also Sebastiani and Parducci. Then the family started Mendocino Vineyards in the early 1950s. Gallo and Italian Swiss Colony bought most of the bulk wines then. Later, it was purchased and renamed Cresta Blanca. Then Constellation bought it and changed it to Dunwood, which never took off. Greg started making wine in 1977 and started Milano winery with his friend Jim Maloney. In 1985 he went to work for La Crema and took over in 1986 and was winemaker until 1990. They made 50,000 cases per year then, and now it's maybe 2 million, so it's a different thing now. The Jackson Family owns it now. They grow around 30 different grape varieties. He studied at UC Davis and did not graduate, but he explains how he knows what he needs to know. He learned by working for some really great winemakers. Dan Berger appreciates that they make wine from so many varietals from Italy and elsewhere that nobody else is working with. They have a 2019 Monte Volpe called Vesuvius from Potter Valley. The wine is a blend of grapes that grow around Vesuvius, including Coda di Volpe, Fiano, Greco di Tufo, Trebbiano and others. The vineyard is at a higher elevation so it is cooler so the grapes have higher acidity. The different varieties in this wine are usually never all together. It is very complex and rich, but not oaky. “The fruit is barking at me in this, it's wonderful.” – Steve Jaxon Greg mentions that they are using screw caps now. They found that there are too few people able to work a corkscrew. The year has been difficult due to all the pandemic closures, but that will improve. Click the logo to visit our sponsor Bottle Barn online for the coolest bargains on wine, beer and spirits. The Graziano Family of Wines includes all the different brands, four at the present time with one more on the way. Monte Volpe is all Italian grape varieties. St. Gregory is all Pinots. They take a break to taste Dan Berger's Cellar Dweller of the week. It is a 2014 J Lohr Cuvée POM, a Merlot-based Bordeaux style wine. It was fresh and young in 2018 and now (2020) it still has yet to develop its characteristics. Next they taste the 2017 St. Gregory Pinot Meunier. Dan mentions that there is more Pinot Meunier planted in France in Champagne than actual Champagne grapes. Dan calls it a white wine with color. Greg explains how to identify it against ordinary Pinot Noir by looking at the growing tips of the vine and underneath the leaf, they are covered with tiny white hairs. (The Munier in French is a miller, who gets covered with white dust by milling grain.) It's very floral. They're probably the oldest producer of this in the state. Chandon used to make it but stopped, there was another too. They also make sparkling wine from it. The winery is in Redwood Valley but the tasting room is in Hopland, so that is the place to visit. There are outdoor chairs and umbrellas, for now, but they are open (late 2020). Click the logo to visit our sponsor Rodney Strong for the latest on the 2022 Summer Concert series.

“That's the light of freedom! Remember that. Freedom.” This is the story of 40% of modern America's ancestors—this is the story of Ellis Island. Religious persecution. Economic devastation. Stifling political regimes. Whether fleeing for their lives or simply to improve them, Europeans—especially Eastern and Southern Europeans—are flocking to turn-of-the-century America. But no port is busier than New York City. The journey is no laughing matter. Many immigrants are traveling nearly penniless as they make their way to major port cities. They then endure the filth, stench, and overcrowding of steerage for two-weeks on the Atlantic, all with the hope that they'll pass the health and legal inspections of Ellis Island. The vast majority will, but the fear of being turned away—of being separated from family members allowed in, or being sent back to Europe destitute–is terrifying.

During a show four years ago, Hoosier History Live explored the connections between Indiana and Ellis Island, the gateway to America for generations of immigrants. The receiving center for aspiring Americans in New York Harbor opened in 1892 during the administration of President Benjamin Harrison, the only president elected from Indiana. As a kind of prequel to that show, we will delve into the immigration scenario that led the federal government to open Ellis Island, including controversies at its predecessor, Castle Garden on lower Manhattan in New York City. The country's first official immigration center, Castle Garden was operated by New York officials. We also will explore the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which Harrison opposed as a U.S. senator from Indiana. The Chinese Exclusion Act, which suspended the immigration of skilled and unskilled Chinese laborers, passed without Harrison's support. According to Nelson's guest, Harrison was labeled the “pro-Chinese candidate" of the Republican Party in his presidential campaign of 1888.

My very special guest today is Anthony, Tomey. Anthony is a full-time entrepreneur, a former professional baseball player with the Detroit Tigers organization and now truly one of the largest franchise owners of Jimmy John's, The Chicken Guy and also a Real Estate Developer.  Additionally, he is the owner of 8 Mile Vodka - a Vodka that took home the awards for Best in Class: Vodka and Best of Class: Overall Vodka at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. I sat down with Anthony to talk about how he transitioned from pitching on the baseball diamond to pitching in the boardroom and hitting home runs every time!   Anthony shares how he gets the inspiration to “win at all costs” from his dad. His dad came to the United States, Ellis Island, at 25 years old and with $20.00 in his pocket.  Though he didn't speak English, he managed to put himself through college and earned a master's degree, all while working as a busboy at the London Chophouse in Detroit.  Anthony's goal from a young age was to earn a full ride scholarship to thank his father who had paid for a private Catholic school education.    As a baseball player, Anthony loved the pressure of the game.  He was a closer, a last inning pitcher, and thrived in the bases loaded, no one out scenarios.  It was the thrill of the competition that motivated him. He also talks about how humbling it was to go from being the #1 pitcher in college to the majors where everyone was on a level playing field with every guy being the #1 player where they came from.  Baseball taught him that no matter what happens, you're going to fail.  You have to pick yourself up and get back out there.     In the spring of 2003, Anthony Tomey was playing baseball at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. His family came to see him play, and after the game they headed to a sub shop down the street. The place had a line of 20 people stretching outside of the door. At first the family took this as a bad sign, but a member of staff told them to stick around. In less than five minutes, their food was in their hands. This was a defining moment, as they all were amazed at the speed and efficiency with which this business operated. Just a few months later, five like-minded Tomey family members, Fawzi, Tony, Anthony, Christine, and Michael, opened a Jimmy John's of their own in Novi, Michigan.   In 2003, the Tomey Group LLC was founded as a means to grow a brand the partners loved, and to bring the same expansion to brands throughout the country. As of May 2019, the Tomey Group has bought and opened more than 50 Jimmy John's locations throughout the Detroit Metro area.   Anthony is not your average franchise owner. Sitting back and delegating tasks from afar isn't his style. Instead, he is hands-on involved in all aspects of the business, from preparing sandwiches to making deliveries.  He is committed to providing employees with what they need and deserve, no matter what that looks like. He knows his employees' names, how they work, and what makes them tick.     Just over a year ago, Anthony and his brother had an opportunity to buy a vodka company. 8 Mile Vodka, and an apparel company, Born in Detroit became their next financial endeavor. They currently oversee operations and have had great success, partnering with the Detroit Pistons with both companies, while getting into every Meijer in Michigan with 8 Mile. Additionally, 8 Mile Vodka just recently took home the awards for Best in Class: Vodka and Best of Class: Overall Vodka at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.    Recently Tomey Group signed a deal to become the newest franchisees of Chicken Guy, a new concept by Guy Fieri. It competes directly with Chick Fil A, and the Tomey Group bought the rights to southeast Michigan. Anthony truly believes that the harder you work, the luckier you get.  The opportunities that continue to present themselves to the Tomey group are a direct result of hard work and surrounding themselves with successful people.  Success attracts success.   The Tomey group continues to grow their empire and have added Real Estate to their growing portfolio.  With the recent purchase of a shopping plaza in White Lake MI 3 years ago, 4 apartment complexes throughout SE Detroit and a resort on Houghton Lake, there is no stopping this hard-working entrepreneur!   Helpful Links: Follow Anthony on social media:  Instagram: Anthony Tomey - @atomey53 8 Mile Vodka - @official8milevodka Born In Detroit - @officialbornindetriot Website: Tomey Group - https://tomeygroup.com

“The seeds inside will be a cross of two parent apple trees. Breeders will plant those seeds, grow that tree and just wait to see what the results come out to be. It's very similar to having your kids.”   Brett Valicoff (21:26-21:36)   Brett Valicoff, President of Valicoff Fruit, a farm started by his great grandfather over one hundred years ago, certainly knows the complexities that go into growing apples and tree fruits. Ever wonder where some of the unique and new apple varieties are coming from? Hint: it has nothing to do with genetic modification or engineering, instead, a primitive process that's touched by human hands as little as possible.   Valicoff's great grandfather, an immigrant from Bulgaria, started the farm after traveling from Ellis Island to Washington while working on the railroads, settling into the very fertile Yakima Valley. Yakima Valley is quite well known for their hops, world-renowned apples, and wine grapes, and although it's a high desert, most of the water comes from irrigation canals that flow snowfall from the mountain ranges into the deep valleys. This makes the soil extremely fertile and ideal for growing.   Valicoff is a “vertically integrated” company that's positioned themselves well as a stakeholder in the food supply system. By diversifying what they grow as much as possible, Valicoff has the ability to generate a consistent, good return year-after-year and invest it back into the business. If a certain commodity isn't performing well one year, another one of their commodities will, however this makes for deep risk taking in future forecasting what a consumer is going to be interested in buying in the next five to seven years time.    “Vertically integrated means we are farming our own land and growing different commodities. We're diversified with apples, pears, apricots, peaches, nectarines and some cherries. Not only are we growing them, we also own and operate a storage and packing facility, so we bring the food that we grow along with outside growers who trust us to handle their fruit and packaging and get the best return for them that we can.” Brett Valicoff (8:53-9:34)   Why five to seven years? Apple and fruit trees have a unique growing process that's nothing like row crops. Tree fruit take about two years of preparation time before they're ready to be planted thanks to something called grafting. After grafting and planting, you have to train the tree for another two to four years before you can start picking, with a maximum yield not happening for up to seven years.   Ever wonder where the new, unique varieties of apples are coming from? Even though it's easy to assume genetic modification has something to do with it, for Valicoff Fruit it's the exact opposite. They use tree grafting, an ancient horticultural practice that adds one plant's tissue to another, helping two plants grow into one.   Each tree is just a “root stock” (established root) and once a root stock is big enough to graft, farmers will Very similar to conceiving and having a child, when farmers graft trees, they will cut off a “scion” of the tree (the part of the stem with buds) and cut off a bud. They'll make a notch in the root of another tree, insert the first bud into the notch, cover it completely so air is kept out, and then nature takes over to create delicious fruit varieties we haven't ever tasted before!    “This looks like such a primitive way to change over an entire orchard or variety of apples, but it works.” Lori Taylor (16:35-16:44)   Nothing is more old fashioned or primitive than tree grafting, and when  you come across a new apple variety, it was most likely created from this. Even more interesting, farmers will use seeds from tree grafting and often get 50 or 60 different looking and tasting apples from the same combination. They then have to decide which variety will grow the best and have a flavor consumers will love. If you ever have decision fatigue about all the new apple varieties, just do a quick internet search and find out what flavor and texture you can expect.

My guests are the mother/daughter team of Sammi Cannold & Dori Berinstein, who are the co-directors and co-producers of the new documentary The Show Must Go On -- a film that I found to be both fascinating and very moving. Sammi Cannold is a theater director whose recent projects include Evita at New York City Center, Endings at NY Theater Workshop, Ragtime on Ellis Island and Violet on a bus at American Repertory Theatre. In 2019 she was named one of Forbes Magazine's “30 Under 30 in Hollywood and Entertainment”. Dori Berinstein is a four-time Tony award winning Broadway producer as well as an Emmy award winning director, producer and writer of film and television. She is also the founder and CEO of the Broadway Podcast Network. When in March of 2020 the global pandemic shut down live theatre around the world, South Korea was the only country that did not close its theaters. The Show Must Go On primarily follows the companies of two Korean productions -- The Phantom of The Opera and CATS -- which demonstrated how live theater could continue to operate safely in spite of the pandemic. In this episode you will hear the story of how Sammi journeyed to Korea to document the incredible difficulties, challenges and ultimate triumphs of these two productions. And we will also look at why Korea was able to to do something that theaters in the West could not accomplish. If you enjoy this podcast, please be sure to follow, rate, and review it wherever you listen. I am happy to say that Broadway Nation has received 75 Five Star reviews.

We don't mean to boast or brag, but the second Rebecca book is filled with lots of heartwarming moments and a few fun surprises. When cousin Ana finally gets to New York, she has a lot to learn from Rebecca. What's the deal with the classroom dunce cap? Why are so many American laws unjust? How does anyone pull off a solid performance of “You're a Grand Old Flag?” This book boldly tackles these topics while also bringing new meaning to the term full house. We talk about surveillance and health at Ellis Island, Rebecca's friendships, and how adversarial shopping might make you feel like an American.

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX. A note on notes: We'd much rather you just went into each episode of The Memory Palace cold. And just let the story take you where it well.

Most of the biographical details in this were found in the official biography written for the National Academy of Sciences by his Uranium-hunting colleague, George Tilton, and a terrific, entertaining oral history interview. Also, if you've left episode in the mode where you'd just like to know some more, I came across this old Mental Floss article by Lucas Reilly that I thought did a particularly good job of weaving a lot of the back story (some of which I'd covered before in the Midgely episode linked above) into Patterson's story. Just wanted to shine a light on it.
