On the latest edition of the show, it's time for T.J. and his guests to get a little nostalgic, as two huge fight anniversaries happened four decades ago this week with Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard. T.J. welcomes Marquis Johns, Sr. Writer of Big Fightweekend.com, and historian Lee Groves of RingTV.com and his own boxing history books to the show. The guys discuss "The Greatest" Muhammad Ali recapturing the Heavyweight title for a second time, when he defeated Leon Spinks in a rematch in the Louisiana Superdome in 1978. Lee gives great perspective on how Ali got "the magic back" for one more night. They also go over the anniversary of Leonard's epic World Welterweight title win over unbeaten Thomas "Hit man" Hearns the same week but three years later in 1981 in Las Vegas. It was part of the "Four Kings" who ruled the middle divisions of boxing in the late 70s through the early 90s with Robert Duran and Marvin Hagler. And, they became the wealthiest non-Heavyweights ever in doing so. Finally, T.J. and Marquis go over the limited fight cards for the weekend that was supposed to have Canelo Alvarez going for Super Middleweight supremacy but its delayed until November. Still, there are a couple of Premier Boxing Champions cards on back to back nights in Bakersfield, CA that Marquis has insight on for fans.

with Şölen Şanlı Vasquez hosted by Brittany White | Over the course its final decades, millions of Muslim immigrants, many of them refugees of war and Russian conquest, settled in the Ottoman Empire. Between a quarter and a third of people in Turkey today have ancestors who arrived with those migrations. Yet their history often stops short of capturing the personal experiences of such people, what was erased, and what they have sought to preserve. In this episode, we speak with sociologist Şölen Şanlı Vasquez about how to write a more empathetic history of migration in Turkey through the lens of the Circassian diaspora. For her, this history is not just the story of how people from the North Caucasus were expelled from one empire and settled in an another. It is also a personal story about continuity, rupture, and recovery within the families of immigrants across generations and continents. Through a conversation about her ongoing research project called "The Home Within," we explore the themes of family, gender, ethnicity, race, and erasure --- not only in Turkey --- but across contexts of migration and displacement in the US and elsewhere. And we also reflect on the importance of public history that makes these issues relevant and relatable to a wider audience. « Click for More »

Phil and Jake are joined by friend and fellow Ted-head Phoebe Assenza for a deep-dive discussion and ranking of Theodore Roosevelt on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).Make sure to check out Phoebe's Substack.SHOW NOTES: Phil claims his sister (and recent EDT guest) Alexa Green said dry-cleaning is a mutually-agreed upon lie that holds society together. Phil takes it a step further and claims that laundry detergent might not be real either. He knows for a fact that dryer sheets aren't real. Phoebe disagrees as a laundry-doer in humid and smelly New York.  Phil also says that peanuts should be marketed as the most crunchy form of peanut butter; peanuts become peanut butter once you chew them so they should be sold as a less messy form of peanut butter. Here's the History Vs. Theodore Roosevelt podcast that Jake listened to for show prep. The Strenuous Life is a speech in which T.R. said that “danger, hardship, and bitter toil… win the splendid triumph.” As a sickly kid, Roosevelt's father pushed him to challenge himself physically and it became the cornerstone of Teddy's persona — walking into danger like the Battle of San Juan Hill, choosing a rugged life in the Badlands rather than seeking comfort in New York after the death of his mother and wife on the same night.  William McKinley was assassinated by an anarchist. The guy who tried to assassinate Teddy Roosevelt said McKinley visited him in a dream and told him to do it.   The "Man in the Arena" speech is actually called “Citizenship in a Republic”. Roosevelt was a backer of the Simplified Spelling Board, who pushed to simplify spelling. Grave-robbing was a big deal before someone thought up donating your body to science. The Panama Canal was completed in 1914 (the Suez Canal was completed forty-five years earlier in 1869). Turns out it was actually TR's dad (TR senior) who was one of the founders of the American Museum of Natural History, not TR.  Lamarckian evolution, as we discussed, is a discredited idea of evolution where acquired characteristics are inherited. The classic example is a giraffe. Lamarck explained that a giraffe's neck is long because its ancestors stretched their necks to get leaves and passed the longer necks along to their descendants.

What does it say about the American Dream if immigrants achieve financial success but their children, and their children's children, still experience a lack of belonging? What does it mean to be part of groups that are both privileged and treated as outsiders? What are the flaws in the stories we tell ourselves about our parents' generation, and what are their consequences? What are the forces, internal and external, that shape our ambition? And when might ambition become our downfall? This week on Book Dreams, Sanjena Sathian--using the particular stories of two Indian American families in her debut novel Gold Diggers to access a universal story--shares thoughts on these questions and more. Sanjena Sathian is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, an alumna of the Clarion Writers' Workshop and a former Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow. She's worked as a journalist in San Francisco and in Mumbai, and she has written nonfiction for The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vox, Time, Food & Wine, and more. Her award-winning short fiction appears in Conjunctions, Boulevard, Joyland, Salt Hill, and The Masters Review. Booksellers named Gold Diggers an “Indie Next” pick, and Mindy Kaling's production company is adapting it for a TV series, with Sanjena co-writing the adaptation and Mindy Kaling herself set to executive produce.

Eleventh-century Spain was a violent borderland of Christian-Muslim bloodshed, but on the eve of the First Crusade, the two religions cooperated as much as they warred in Iberia. And who else to capture the heart of medieval Spain than Charlton Heston himself? Based on the real-life Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, who lived from 1043 to 1099 and was protagonist of the 13th century epic The Poem of the Cid, this movie captures medieval Spain in full Hollywood Golden Age splendor. Rodrigo defeated the Almoravids in a decisive battle in the history of Spain's Reconquista, but was known for battling with both Muslims and Christians. The move – despite its extremely slow pacing and suuuuuper long takes – does a good job of capturing this age. It also doesn't hurt that few people could handle the mythopoetic language of the script like Charlton Heston (John Wayne definitely couldn't – see our review of him as Genghis Khan in The Conqueror).
