    In 1998, when Viagra was approved by the FDA, it suddenly opened up new sexual possibilities for people who had previously had none. The drug also sparked an earnest and very public conversation about erectile dysfunction — one that quickly veered toward late-night punchlines. And yet, despite the millions of prescriptions written during its nearly 25 years of existence, for some, Viagra did not prove to be the quick fix they had hoped for. This month, OTM shares the first episode of a compelling 3-part series about the drug from our colleagues at Death, Sex & Money.  You can hear more from Death, Sex & Money here.

    Dr. Hillary S. Webb talks about shamanism, stand-up comedy, and the adventure of being alive. She's a cultural anthropologist and mixed-media storyteller with a focus on theater anthropology and cross-cultural perspectives on human consciousness. And, Hillary describes her work as exploring how we make meaning of this wonderful, terrible, ecstatic, startling, and often absurd world in which we live.  Growing up, Hillary found herself falling in love with the human condition. Consequently, the more she saw, the deeper she wanted to go into understanding it. And, it was this impulse that led Hillary to earn an undergraduate degree in Journalism from New York University, an MA in Consciousness Studies from Goddard College, and a PhD in Existential-Humanistic Psychology from Saybrook University. Hillary values, “pulling back the blinders." because she wants to understand and engage with the world in the purest possible way. And, to do that, she aims to expand her perspective to try to see the world for what it really is, not just the limited view we have as an individual. Hillary is interested in how people around the world address the complexities of being human.  Furthermore, to what degree do we differ and in what ways are we the same in our existential concerns. And how do we seek to relieve them? What experiences—and the belief systems that arise out of them—help us make meaning of our lives and feel less alone in the universe? These are some of the questions motivating Hillary's life and work. She lives to write. Writing is part of creating an adventurous life she LOVES living! And her four books recount some of what she discovered when she went looking for answers. A professor at Goddard College in Vermont, Hillary is the author of four nonfiction books including the most recently published, The Friendliest Place in the Universe: Love, Laughter, and Stand-Up Comedy in Berlin. When not lurking around the stand-up comedy clubs of Europe, she lives in Maine with her husband. Resources Mentioned:  Dr. Webb's website  - check out her books!

    149 Data is fundamental to The Washington Post's “Unaccountable” series

    Damian Daniels had three encounters with the local police during the last 48 hours of his life. The Army veteran was in his home in August 2020, amid a mental health crisis, when his brother — 800 miles away in Colorado — called the Red Cross for help. The agency, in turn, called 9-1-1, and police officers were dispatched for a welfare check that turned deadly, culminating in an officer shooting Daniels twice, killing him. Tragedies like this — when a person in the throes of a mental health crisis is shot and killed by police officers — aren't rare. Washington Post reporters Jon Gerberg and Alice Li found 178 similar cases over the course of three years. They wrote about Daniel's death in “When a call to the police for help turns deadly,” part of the Washington Post's “Unaccountable” investigative series — a deep dive into how the police serve the communities they're tasked to protect. Jon Gerberg is a senior video journalist for the Washington Post and a member of the investigative team. He's been with the news organization since 2017, and before that, he reported for The New York Times, the Associated Press, TIME, and worked as a foreign affairs producer for “PBS NewsHour.”   As the database editor for the investigations unit at the Washington Post, Steven Rich knows data and how integral it is to investigative stories. Rich and Gerberg were E&P Publisher Mike Blinder's guests on E&P Reports 149th episode. They were joined by E&P contributor Gretchen A. Peck for a conversation about data and the “Unaccountable” series. “I got the job here at The Post through an internship,” Rich recalled during the vodcast. “I turned that internship into a second internship and into a job. At the time, there was not as much data capacity at The Post. They sort of needed me, and I was focused largely on large investigative projects.” Though the term “data journalism” may be relatively recent on the news-evolution timeline, the practice is hardly novel. “Data journalism has kind of been under the surface for a very long time,” Rich said, citing Ida B. Wells as an example, who in effect collected data about lynchings in the south. Rich sees data as a way to offer larger context to otherwise anecdotal stories. “My job is to take your anecdotes and to tell you how often they happen,” he said. For roughly seven years, The Post's data team has been building a publicly available database of police shootings across the country, populating it, mining it, and gleaning patterns and revelations to inform their reporting. For example, they track the number and location of police-involved shootings, whether the victim was armed, and where it took place — for instance, in a private home versus in a public setting. They also seek insight into why the police are on the scene at all — if a call to 9-1-1 was the only option for help.  The investigative team knew that Damian Daniel's death was not unique. They knew of other high-profile incidents when the police were called to help people in mental crisis, only to kill them during the course of that interaction. They cited Daniel Prude in Rochester, New York and Walter Wallace, Jr. in Philadelphia. “But we wanted to know how often this is actually happening, and that's where we turn to colleagues like Steven, who have actually been compiling this database,” he added. With the help of a team of journalism students from American University, The Post's investigative team could look at approximately 1,000 police shooting cases and drill down to those for which mental health was a suspected or known factor. They found 178 such occurrences, representing victims of all ages, races and genders. There were some things the data didn't reveal, which required the investigative team to find answers in other ways. For example, the database doesn't currently track officers' disciplinary records or suspensions, whether they were involved in prior similar incidents, or whether they've been violent outside of the job. “My approach to data journalism is and has always been as a way to take a great story and make it excellent,” Rich said. “The most important part of data journalism is the journalism itself. … It's one thing to collect data, but you have to actually extract the meaning out of it,” Rich suggested.   The “Fatal Force” database continues to inform the investigative team's reporting. “It's kind of a gift that keeps on giving, from a storytelling and reporting perspective,” Gerberg told Blinder and Peck. "Data really is the fundamental spine of our reporting because why are we telling these stories if they do not tell us something about the world in which we live? I would just add that if you kind of take the inverse of that, if you only have the data and are never taking stories out of that, what does it mean in the first place? I think a crucial part of our job is to take that data and identify those trends, but also work to really illuminate and understand what kind of consequences these trends are having in the lives of everyday people,” Gerberg concluded. The team's reporting of this story inspired change in Bexar County, Texas. “Bexar County had a mental-health response unit within its own police department,” Gerberg explained. “The problem was, Mr. Daniels was actually in the jurisdiction of the Bear County Sheriff's, rather than the [San Antonio Police Department] — so, a different jurisdiction. But since Mr. Daniel's killing, the judge there has implemented a secondary program to increase mental health options for the rest of the county, as well.”

    A literary and cultural milestone, Spoon River Anthology captured an idea of the rural Midwest that became a bedrock myth of life in small-town America. Jason Stacy places the book within the atmosphere of its time and follows its progress as the poetry took root and thrived. Published by Edgar Lee Masters in 1915, Spoon River America: Edgar Lee Masters and the Myth of the American Small Town (U Illinois Press, 2021) won praise from modernists while becoming an ongoing touchstone for American popular culture. Stacy charts the ways readers embraced, debated, and reshaped Masters's work in literary controversies and culture war skirmishes; in films and other media that over time saw the small town as idyllic then conflicted then surreal; and as the source of three archetypes—populist, elite, and exile—that endure across the landscape of American culture in the twenty-first century. A wide-ranging reconsideration of a literary landmark, Spoon River America tells the story of how a Midwesterner's poetry helped change a nation's conception of itself. Jason Stacy is a professor of history and social science pedagogy at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. He is the author of Walt Whitman's Multitudes: Labor Reform and Persona in Whitman's Journalism and the First Leaves of Grass, 1840–1855 and editor of Leaves of Grass, 1860: The 150th Anniversary Facsimile Edition. Daniel Moran earned his B.A. and M.A. in English from Rutgers University and his Ph.D. in History from Drew University.
