Military Historians are People, Too! A Podcast with Brian & Bill

Today's guest is the prolific, experienced, fan of the Rolling Stones and recently announced 2023 Society for Military History Samuel Eliot Morrison awardee Brian McAllister Linn! Brian is Professor of History and Ralph R. Thomas Class of 1921 Professor in Liberal Arts at Texas A&M University. Brian has been at Texas A&M since 1989, but he had visiting positions at Old Dominion and Nebraska before landing in College Station. He attended the University of Hawaii for his BA and earned his MA and PhD at The Ohio State University. Brian has held far too many fellowships to mention them all, but here are some of his recent accomplishments: He was a Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences Fellow in 2019, National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow in 2018-2019, and a Fulbright Distinguished Professor at the University of Birmingham in the UK in 2016. Brian also held a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, a Woodrow Wilson International Center Fellowship, and a Bosch Fellowship at the American Academy in Berlin. To say that Brian is a prolific scholar is an understatement. In 2016 he published Elvis's Army: Cold War GIs and the Atomic Battlefield (Harvard), which won the US Army Historical Foundation's Best Book Award and US Military History Group's Captain Richard Lukaszewicz Memorial Book Award. The Society for Military History has recognized Brian's work with its prestigious Distinguished Book Prize twice: for The Philippine War, 1899-1902 and Guardians of Empire: The U.S. Army and the Pacific, 1902-1940 (which also won the US Army Historical Foundation's Best Book Award). His most recent book, Real Soldiering: The U.S. Army in the Aftermath of War, 1815-1940, will be published by the University Press of Kansas in 2023. Brian has also published more than 40 essays, chapters, and articles, including the just-published “Forty Years On: Master Narratives and US Military History (War & Society, 2022), which includes a shout-out to Military Historians are People, Too! Brian's service to the profession has been immense. He currently sits on the editorial boards of Battlegrounds: Cornell Studies in Military History, War and Society, and the Journal of Strategic Studies. Brian is a past president and trustee of the Society for Military History, which recognized his service with its Edwin M. Simmons Memorial Service Award in 2012. We'll talk Hawaii, the state of military history today, Gaylord Perry, Stones versus Beatles, and Fulbright-ing. Join us for a much-anticipated chat with Brian Linn! And a big shout-out to Carney's Pub in Bryan, Texas! Rec.: 12/02/2022

Brittney has been a practicing SLP for 13 years. She received her Bachelor's & Master's degrees from Alabama A&M University. Brittney has worked in public schools, home health, and outpatient private practice. She has always enjoyed the fun and flexibility of functional, client lead therapy in her client's natural environment. Speak Wonders was founded to fill a need for in-home speech therapy services for Black and minority children in underserved communities. Their mission is to provide equitable therapeutic services to ALL people. They know firsthand how healthcare disparities affect people of color, and they aim to level the playing field as it relates to access and quality of services. Brittney is driven by how life-changing therapy can be to children with disabilities, especially in the Black community. As a Black therapist, she takes pride in being the representation our field lacks. Educating, advocating for, and treating her community brings her joy and helps to fulfill our mission. Communication is essential, everyone deserves a voice, and we're here to help ALL people communicate effectively and Speak Wonders.In Today's Episode, We Discuss:How Brittney started seeing private clients The non-compete clause Brittney dealt with The process of applying to take Medicaid How Brittney navigated payment issues Making your first hire The experience of working with school contracts How she dealt with imposter syndromeThe importance of being resourceful as a business owner The award she won because of her hard workThe benefits of getting licensed in multiple states The possibilities available to you if you offer telehealth If you want to be a business owner and have a private practice, you need to get comfortable with problem-solving your way through issues in order to get to the other side.

Stan Hall of the Gas South District joins us to talk about the upcoming speaker series. Plus... Rising country superstar  Zach Bryan is bringing his Burn Burn Burn North American Tour to Gwinnett County in May. The singer, who has hits with "From Austin," "Heading South" and "Something in the Orange" is coming to Gas South Arena on May 15. Fans can register for the chance to purchase  tickets via Fair AXS at www.axs.com/zachbryan. After the Fair AXS registration period concludes on January 29 at 10 p.m., AXS will work to ensure any suspicious, fraudulent, and/or duplicated registrations are removed, tour officials said. Fans who are randomly selected to purchase tickets will be notified via email, starting on Feb. 13, with all pertinent information for them to complete their purchase, subject to availability.  Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and an invitation email for the chance to purchase tickets does not guarantee tickets will be available.  Tickets purchased through AXS cannot be transferred or resold for profit. If a fan can no longer attend a show, tickets can be sold on the Zach Bryan AXS Marketplace for face value to another fan. There can be little argument that the COVID pandemic of the last few years forced a lot of folks to become more acquainted with their own homes, where they found themselves spending more and more time. It is for that reason that the home renovation and design industries stayed healthy while many other businesses struggled. With that in mind — and with spring right around the corner — could there be a better time for the 25th annual North Atlanta Home Show? Set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Gas South Convention Center in Duluth, the North Atlanta Home Show will bring more than 160 exhibitors to the area for a comprehensive collection of products, services, displays and experts that covers just about everything related to home improvement. Levine added that with the expansion of the convention center now complete, there will be even more opportunities for patrons to be dazzled by the array of options. Last year's home show attracted some 7,000 visitors and Levine said he can see even more attendees this time around. The home show is produced by Marketplace Events, North America's largest presenter of home, garden, holiday and bridal shows. Levine said just every show produced thus far in 2023 — including Oklahoma City, Dallas, Washington, Kansas City, Austin, Salt Lake City and several Canadian cities — has seen an uptick in visitors.  Suwanee resident and Southern Company Gas/Nicor Gas Director of Corporate Safety Brian Thomas was the recent recipient of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity — Alpha Upsilon Lambda Chapter's Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Award for Governmental and Military Service.

He retired from the Alabama Army National Guard Active/Guard Reserve program as a Major, after 26 years of service in November 2014.

Rebbetzin Manya Lazaroff is the co-director of the Rohr Chabad Jewish Center at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. In this down-to-earth and very relatable interview, Rebbetzin Manya talks to us about parent-child relationships and how to interact with our children while understanding who they are, and respecting them as individuals. She emphasizes that each child came into the world with a specific purpose; each child has a Divinely ordained reason that they are here. We, as parents, need to help them be the best that they can be with the challenges, strengths, talents, and abilities they in particular, were given. If we accept that our kids and human, and that we are also human, and that we all make mistakes, we remove the need for guilt, and we are better able to think clearly. We can then help our children clearly identify their challenges, and help them come up with solutions. Rebbetzin Manya also said that we need to explain to our children the reasons behind things we value and deem important. Also, if they encounter something that doesn't feel right to them, they should question it--if one person doesn't know the answer, they should ask someone else. If something doesn't feel right to you, don't do it. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/vera-kessler/message

How she broke the glass ceiling as a Latina in technology to become a top executive in the hot Austin tech scene. How to be bold and not look back. Martha had to leave her dream job after being forced to lay off 70% of her staff due to the oil and gas industry tanking. What opportunities are available for women – especially minority women – in technology, and why she thinks more women don't take advantage of them.

(30:00) - The first crisis for the industry was Prohibition from 1920 to 1933. The second crisis in American bourbon history came during the 1960s as the younger generations turned away from their parent's whiskey and turned to clear liquors. When Sean Connery as James Bond asks for a martini "shaken not stirred," this marks the cultural shift.

Book Recommendation - "The Way You Wear Your Hat: Frank Sinatra and The Lost Art of Livin" (50:00) - Bourbon does not need to be made in Kentucky but must be made in the United States to be called a Bourbon.The weather, water, and barrel, all impact the bourbon as much as the ingredients. Bottle and Bond - passed in 1897 was the first consumer protection act in America to protect citizens from the "snake oil salesmen" in the old west selling poor-grade alcohols, tonics, and elixirs that were killing people.  (1:07:00) - What has happened to give the industry a resurgence today? American Whiskey is booming today. Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery Weller, Old Fitzgerald, and Makers Mark were brands sold off to other distillers. The family held on to one brand "Old Rip Van Winkle." The Japanese market and investment also helped save the American bourbon market. "Wheated Bourbons" are softer and smoother. A few examples are Larceny, Weller, Old Fitzgerald, Old Rip Van Winkle, and Makers Mark. Follow Rod Arnold at The Bourbon Whisperer and on Instagram No matter what you do in life have enthusiasm.

From this vantage, they looked West into the Painted Desert and sat silent, meditative, banking the inspiration which had been the motivation for their trip to the Ruins, and stared into the most glorious sunset for an extremely long time. Without conversation, the women reflected on the richness of the day's events and the direction each would take from this pivotal moment."And to quote Mary Colter's own letters, ‘In the meantime, as for a long time past, I am your very sincere friend and happy passenger, Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter'In her career as Science Coordinator for the State of Texas at Texas Education Agency, Dr. Barbara ten Brink was invited by Texas A&M University to participate in a two-week geological field trip by charter but through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.

Rebroadcast: this episode was originally released in July 2020. Today's guest, Jennifer Doleac — Associate Professor of Economics at Texas A&M University, and Director of the Justice Tech Lab — is an expert on empirical research into policing, law and incarceration. In this extensive interview, she highlights three ways to effectively prevent crime that don't require police or prisons and the human toll they bring with them: better street lighting, cognitive behavioral therapy, and lead reduction. One of Jennifer's papers used switches into and out of daylight saving time as a 'natural experiment' to measure the effect of light levels on crime. One day the sun sets at 5pm; the next day it sets at 6pm. When that evening hour is dark instead of light, robberies during it roughly double. Links to sources for the claims in these show notes, other resources to learn more, the full blog post, and a full transcript. The idea here is that if you try to rob someone in broad daylight, they might see you coming, and witnesses might later be able to identify you. You're just more likely to get caught. You might think: "Well, people will just commit crime in the morning instead". But it looks like criminals aren't early risers, and that doesn't happen. On her unusually rigorous podcast Probable Causation, Jennifer spoke to one of the authors of a related study, in which very bright streetlights were randomly added to some public housing complexes but not others. They found the lights reduced outdoor night-time crime by 36%, at little cost. The next best thing to sun-light is human-light, so just installing more streetlights might be one of the easiest ways to cut crime, without having to hassle or punish anyone. The second approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), in which you're taught to slow down your decision-making, and think through your assumptions before acting. There was a randomised controlled trial done in schools, as well as juvenile detention facilities in Chicago, where the kids assigned to get CBT were followed over time and compared with those who were not assigned to receive CBT. They found the CBT course reduced rearrest rates by a third, and lowered the likelihood of a child returning to a juvenile detention facility by 20%. Jennifer says that the program isn't that expensive, and the benefits are massive. Everyone would probably benefit from being able to talk through their problems but the gains are especially large for people who've grown up with the trauma of violence in their lives. Finally, Jennifer thinks that reducing lead levels might be the best buy of all in crime prevention. There is really compelling evidence that lead not only increases crime, but also dramatically reduces educational outcomes. In today's conversation, Rob and Jennifer also cover, among many other things: • Misconduct, hiring practices and accountability among US police • Procedural justice training • Overrated policy ideas • Policies to try to reduce racial discrimination • The effects of DNA databases • Diversity in economics • The quality of social science research Get this episode by subscribing: type 80,000 Hours into your podcasting app. Producer: Keiran Harris.

Mateen tells us how the unexpected loss of his mother in 2020 changed his life and informs his comedy. Is it hard to be funny in the wake of tragedy? And in this age of cancel culture, what's off-limits onstage? Mateen Stewart is a Detroit native and Los Angeles local. He can be seen on season 9 of Comedy Dynamics' "Coming to the Stage" and in the upcoming film "The Devil Runs Kansas City."

In a new press conference-style episode, True Crime Reporter's Robert Riggs takes questions from fans.  True crime fan Patricia Rocha turns the table on Riggs and asks what it is like to go inside the crime scene tape. Riggs recently met Rocha, an architecture student, and her friends at a ceremony for Outstanding Alumni from the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University. Afterward, Rocha and her friends peppered him with questions about true crime cases. Looking on was Bill Peel, an Outstanding Alum and Executive Director of Innovation at Texas A&M's Mays School of Business. Peel suggested that a press conference-style interview by fans should be a regular feature here. Riggs has covered his share of press conferences at the White House, Capitol Hill, Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and breaking news at crime scenes. But unlike the spokespersons behind those podiums, you will not find Riggs dancing around any questions. If you want to come on the podcast for a press conference send an email to Fan@TrueCrimeReporter.com.   Tell Riggs what you want to talk about and why. Here's today's True Crime Reporter® press conference.  We want to become your favorite true crime podcast. Please leave a review wherever you listen.
