Ken's a world authority and he's been on the pod twice before, talking about his books about George Martin and the last days of John Lennon. He's just revised and updated the one he wrote in 2007, ‘Long And Winding Roads', partly to add new observations and material, especially in the light of Peter Jackson's Get Back, and partly because the beleaguered world now needs the Beatles more than ever. It's written like a literary biography, as much about the art as the story. This covers the waterfront - thoughts about their deal with EMI, pivotal events in their trajectory, the recent re-evaluation of McCartney (“the convenor”), the gorgeous “guitar embroideries in the margins of their music”, the key role of Mal Evans (“found crying in McCartney's garden when he heard it was all over”), the artistic touchstones of I Am The Walrus and the sheer and comforting delight in hearing the Beatles' music - “returning to the font” - when the world finds itself in times of trouble. As well as being a writer and historian, Ken is Professor of Popular Music at Monmouth University in New Jersey and you'd kill to be in his class. The revamped ‘Long And Winding Roads: the Evolving Artistry of The Beatles' is just out and he's working on a new book about Mal Evans which should appear in June 2023. Long And Winding Roads …https://www.amazon.co.uk/Long-Winding-Roads-Evolving-Artistry/dp/0826417469The Mal Evans book ...https://kennethwomack.com/mal-evans-the-biography-archives/Subscribe to Word In Your Ear on Patreon for a whole world of extra and exclusive content, benefits and rewards!: https://www.patreon.com/wordinyourear Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast.

In this episode, Hettie V. Williams discusses jailing and mass incarceration with Dr. Melanie D. Newport. Williams is Associate Professor of African American History at Monmouth University and Newport is an Assistant Professor of history at the University of Connecticut and the author of This is My Jail: Local Politics and the Rise of Mass Incarceration (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2022). This conversation is structured mainly around Newport's recently published book on jailing with a focus on the Cook County Jail in Chicago. In this text, Newport argues that jailing has been central to the mass incarceration project in the modern history of the United States. She links jailing to local politics and, also, community activism. Newport contends that there is a longer history of mass incarceration connected to racialized “politically repressive” jailing. She includes in this history a discussion of a host of historical actors key to this history such as wardens, correction officers, sheriffs, jailed people themselves and the network of community activists who sought to reform and imagine “their jail.” This is a groundbreaking work in the ever-expanding history of the carceral state.

One of the reasons cited in a poll after the 2016 election was a lack of faith in the electoral system.The Knight Foundation's 2020 study found that 27% of nonvoters said the system was rigged or corrupt.  Two years later, in July 2022, a CNN poll of both nonvoters and voters showed that just 42% of Americans had some confidence that the results of US elections reflect the will of the people.  In the wake of the January 6th hearings, polls by Monmouth University and the Brennan Center in September and October 2022 show a only slight majority of Americans are confident in our electoral  system.   The Midterm turnout will show whether Big Lie disinformation succeeds in keeping more voters home.   Of particular concern are trends among younger citizens who are eligible to vote, ages 18-24. The Knight Foundation found that while they consume media, they are less informed on news and politics than than even habitual nonvoters.  When asked whether more people voting is a good thing, only 56% of all younger citizens agreed, vs. 74% of all voters.  Alarmingly, 20% of younger eligible voters say voting doesn't make any difference.It remains to be seen whether issues like the attack on reproductive rights and the erosion of voting rights will be enough to activate these younger voters.   Links to articles and the surveys can be found at  AmericanDemocracyMinute.org  For the American Democracy Minute, I'm Brian Beihl

In An American Friendship: Horace Kallen, Alain Locke, and the Development of Cultural Pluralism (Cornell UP, 2022), David Weinfeld presents the biography of an idea, cultural pluralism, the intellectual precursor to modern multiculturalism. He roots its origins in the friendship between two philosophers, Jewish immigrant Horace Kallen and African American Alain Locke, who advanced cultural pluralism in opposition to both racist nativism and the assimilationist "melting pot." It is a simple idea—different ethnic groups can and should coexist in the United States, perpetuating their cultures for the betterment of the country as whole—and it grew out of the lived experience of this friendship between two remarkable individuals. Kallen, a founding faculty member of the New School for Social Research, became a leading American Zionist. Locke, the first Black Rhodes Scholar, taught at Howard University and is best known as the intellectual godfather of the Harlem Renaissance and the editor of The New Negro in 1925. Their friendship began at Harvard and Oxford during the years 1906 through 1908 and was rekindled during the Great Depression, growing stronger until Locke's death in 1954. To Locke and Kallen, friendship itself was a metaphor for cultural pluralism, exemplified by people who found common ground while appreciating each other's differences. Weinfeld demonstrates how this understanding of cultural pluralism offers a new vision for diverse societies across the globe. An American Friendship provides critical background for understanding the conflicts over identity politics that polarize US society today. Hettie V. Williams Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of African American history in the Department of History and Anthropology at Monmouth University where she teaches courses in African American history and U.S. history.

Pinheiro, Jr. Williams is Associate Professor of African American history at Monmouth University and Pinheiro is Assistant Professor of African American history at Furman University and the author of The Families' Civil War: Black Soldiers and the Fight for Racial Justice published by the University of Georgia Press in 2022. This conversation is focused on Pinheiro's discussion of Black free born soldiers from Philadelphia, their war time service, and post-war attempts to secure their pensions including how the Civil War impacted Black families. These families faced racial discrimination before, during, and after the war. This was particularly prevalent in their attempts to receive their pensions when the war was over leading to in some cases the devastation. Pinheiro finds that the processes for securing pensions were often discriminatory and invasive. This book The Families' Civil War is a groundbreaking work of history that anyone interested in the history of the Civil War, gender politics, family and race in U.S. history should consider readings.

Nearly six in ten Americans say the U.S. Supreme Court is out of touch with the country, according to the latest poll by Monmouth University. That opinion has crystallized in the months since the Court took away a woman's constitutional right to an abortion in its June decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. On the Friday that Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as the newest justice and as the Court was preparing to start its new term on the first Monday in October, Monmouth University released its poll results. I interviewed Patrick Murray, Director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute on WCBS, about the poll.

In this episode, Hettie V. Williams discusses Black and Asian solidarity with Dr. Zaneta Rago-Craft founding Director of the Intercultural Center at Monmouth University. Dr. Z identifies as multiracial and tells us some about her own Asian ancestry. She speaks here as both a DEI expert and from her personal experiences as a woman of color in the academy. This is Part II of our series on Black and Asian solidarity. We find this to be a necessary ongoing conversation, at the moment, with the rise of Anti-Asian hate that has emerged with the COVID-19 pandemic. There is an expansive history of Black and Asian solidarity as illustrated with the life-long collaboration between James and Grace Lee Boggs, Robert Williams and his travels to China, and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s friendship with Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh.

Today my guest is a dear friend and colleague - Leslie Greenfield. Leslie has lived a life of volunteerism while raising her daughter Heather, who has Rett syndrome. I think you will find inspiration from this conversation. In her life, Leslie has worked tirelessly to fill needs she identifies.Leslie currently serves as the New Jersey Regional Representative for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation. In this role she supports new families as they face this terrifying diagnosis and learn to navigate a new way of life. Most importantly Leslie is wife to Mike and they have 2 daughters, Holly, and Heather, who has Rett syndrome. In this episode Leslie talks about their journey to find out what was wrong with Heather when she began to regress at about 9 months of age. You'll hear about their search for answers as they struggled with persistent seizures, loss of skills, and finally learned the right diagnosis. Once learning Heather had Rett syndrome, Leslie almost immediately jumped into action. Heather was 10 years old then and she and Mike have been advocating, educating and spreading awareness of Rett syndrome ever since.  Together with some passionate families Leslie and Mike founded the New Jersey Rett Syndrome Association. They have hosted several local seminars, family gatherings and fund-raising events. In 2011 NJRSA partnered with Monmouth University to create the Program for Rett Research and Support for Rett - they provide education and support and communication therapy for individuals with complex communication disorders. Through their work they are teaching graduate students about working with individuals who are nonspeaking and how to help them access augmentative communication.I hope you enjoy my conversation with Leslie. There are  so many wonderful takeaways - resilience, strength, ups and downs, and perseverance. She started something from nothing and it's a model for success.

Jim Banks was one of nearly a dozen members of the House Republican Study Committee who met Trump, 76, just a day after the shocking raid on his Florida estate. “He didn’t seem defeated in the least bit — he was very fired up, very upbeat,” Banks told Fox News of the ” great three-hour-long” chat at Trump’s New Jersey golf club, Bedminister. “He said we are going to like his decision and it is only a matter of time before he will make that decision known,” Banks told Fox News of Trump, who hours earlier released a campaign-style video promising that “the best is yet to come.” https://www.theepochtimes.com/trump-suggests-fbi-may-have-planted-evidence-during-mar-a-lago-raid_4655282.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Since we’re already talking about Trump, how about this: Trump Suggests FBI May Have ‘Planted’ Evidence During Mar-a-Lago Raid Former President Donald Trump suggested the FBI may have planted evidence during the bureau’s raid at his Mar-a-Lago home because members of his team were blocked from watching the agents. In a Truth Social post on Wednesday, the former president wrote that “the FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.” “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.’ Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out?” said Trump. FBI agents spent about 10 hours scouring his private office on Monday and broke into his safe, according to Trump and members of his family. Bruce Reinhart, a Florida federal magistrate judge, signed off on a warrant to search the former president’s Florida property. Reinhart worked as a federal prosecutor until 2008 when he became a defense attorney representing employees of convicted sex trafficker and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein. Employees included Epstein’s pilots, a scheduler, and others. The Epoch Times contacted the FBI for comment. Neither the bureau nor Attorney General Merrick Garland have offered public comments about the raid, drawing even questions and condemnation from Democrat politicians. Hey, speaking of those Jan. 6th hearings… https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/jan-6-hearings-public/2022/08/09/id/1082365/ Monmouth Poll: Jan. 6 Hearings Having Little Impact on Public The House Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings have done little to change people's opinions surrounding the 2021 Capitol attack, a new poll found. Regarding former President Donald Trump's culpability in the assault and claims of election fraud, public opinion stands pretty much as it was before testimony of former presidential aides during the last three public hearings, the latest Monmouth University poll found. Not only that, Trump's favorability rating is nearly identical to where it was immediately after the 2020 election. Also, 4 in 10 Americans would lean toward backing a comeback bid in 2024, according to the Monmouth Poll. Overall, just 8% of Americans said the hearings have changed their minds about the Capitol incident — basically unchanged from 6% who said the same in June. "When we released our June poll, I said the committee was preaching to the choir. These current results suggest they haven't recruited any new singers since then," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. The survey found that 38% of respondents believe Trump was responsible directly for what happened on Jan. 6. That number stood at 42% right before the testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson. "The sensational revelations during the hearings do not seem to have moved the public opinion needle on Trump's culpability for either the riot or his spurious election fraud claims," Murray said. Only 41% — including 73% of Democrats — favor charging Trump with crimes related to his involvement on Jan. 6. A total of 34% — including 66% of Republicans — were opposed, and another 25% were unsure. A majority (61%) of Americans have at least a little trust the House committee is conducting a fair investigation, but there's a huge difference between Democrats (91%) and Republicans (35%).

Just weeks later, on July 28, the prestigious school's College Democrats chapter revealed it ousted Cocchiarella from the club "in late October 2021, following campus-wide allegations of sexual assault." Those allegations emerged publicly in a string of December 2021 Reddit posts, which accused Cocchiarella of using "his Twitter notoriety and left-wing credentials to position himself as an ally. Then, once people let their guards down, he rapes them." Crist, who did not return repeated requests for comment, has remained silent on the accusations facing his campaign aide. By his own logic, that silence means he endorses Cocchiarella's alleged behavior—in a June 29 tweet, Crist pressed DeSantis to condemn the January 6 riots, writing, "Is it just me, or do you agree that his silence = endorsement?" Crist is not the only prominent Democrat to hire Cocchiarella following the troubling allegations. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (R., Ga.) Democratic opponent, Marcus Flowers, has paid Cocchiarella's firm more than $40,000 since October 2021, when the activist announced his "new role" as Flowers's digital director. Flowers has his own alleged issues with women. In July 2016, the Democrat attempted to dump his ex-wife—Russian national Svetlana Chudinova—at a local homeless shelter, court documents reported by the New Republic show. Flowers did not dispute the incident and instead defended his attempt to offload Chudinova, saying he "felt she had a personality disorder that was not previously disclosed." In turn, Chudinova accused Flowers of threatening to strike her. Cocchiarella, whose Twitter account boasts more than 250,000 followers and includes a photo of the activist smiling alongside President Joe Biden, enrolled as a Dartmouth freshman during the 2021-22 school year. While it's unclear what specific "digital consulting" services he provided Crist, Cocchiarella publicly endorsed the former governor over fellow DeSantis challenger Nikki Fried (D.) just days after Crist's campaign paid him. Flowers, meanwhile, routinely replies to Cocchiarella's tweets to solicit campaign contributions. In October 2021, he called the young activist "an outstanding young man." In addition to his work with Crist and Flowers, Cocchiarella has collaborated with the Lincoln Project, an anti-Republican super PAC founded by disgraced sexual predator John Weaver. Cocchiarella during an Aug. 1 podcast appearance did, however, confirm his decision to transfer from Dartmouth to fellow Ivy League school Columbia. The activist did not discuss why he opted to leave Dartmouth after just one year at the college and is yet to publicly address the allegations leveled against him. Cocchiarella, Dartmouth College Democrats, and Dartmouth's Title IX office did not return requests for comment. Well isn’t that just nice? https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/legislation-to-change-the-term-inmate-for-those-in-the-prison-system Let’s shift our eyes back to the North East: Gov. Hochul signs legislation changing the term "inmate" for those in the prison system The word "inmate" is out in New York State Law, and that decision is getting a lot of attention. A top political analyst told me Tuesday that Governor Hochul's decision to substitute the term "incarcerated individuals" for inmates in state law is her way of trying to reconcile issues of justice with issues of safety. But Dr. Lee Miringoff says it's a delicate balancing act when her opponent Lee Zeldin is accusing her of not being tough enough on crime. Hochul's critics say she is once again putting the needs of the criminal ahead of the needs of the victim, while those who approve of the change say it gives the prison population a better chance at reintegrating into society. Melanie Trimble of the New York Civil Liberties Union says you can attribute the rise in crime--if there is one--to many factors, like the pandemic and an increase in gun sales. She says the language change helps to dignify--and humanize--people who have done their time. Dr. Miringoff of Marist College says the Governor has already chosen a clear path on the issue of crime by not bringing the legislature back to deal with bail reform, and he believes she's banking on this language change helping her with her base in November. Trimble argues that using inclusive language that makes those returning to society after a stint in prison feel comfortable is not a heavy lift, and one that will make a real difference in peoples lives. She said, "You know, we love to label people, and this is a community that is extremely vulnerable. We need to provide them with as many possibilities and hopeful futures as possible." Let’s shift things to the topic that I love… sports! Let’s talk Baseball today: https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/08/after-abandoning-their-heritage-and-name-the-cleveland-guardians-attendance-tanks/ This is for you Mark Dewey: After Abandoning Their Heritage And Name, The Cleveland Guardians’ Attendance Tanks Last year, in an attempt to appease woke liberals, the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland Guardians after previously announcing their intent to drop the Indians name in 2020. The team released a statement announcing their decision, “The Cleveland Indians today announced our decision to begin the process of changing from our team name ‘Indians.'” “Since July, we have conducted an extensive process to learn how our team name affected different constituencies and whether it aligned with our organizational values,” the organization explained. “As a result of that process, we have decided to move forward with changing the current team name and determining a new, non-Native American based name for the franchise.” They further detailed, “In our statement in June 2020, we acknowledged the importance of taking a leadership role in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts across the community and enhancing our support for underserved and under-represented groups. As part of that commitment, we heard from individuals and groups who shared a variety of views and opinions on the issue. Their efforts to bring people together have apparently failed as they’ve brought about 6,000 fewer people together per game. Average attendance has dropped to 15,636 fans a game this year according to Baseball Reference. A steep decline from their 21,465 average attendance in 2019, the most recent year not affected by Covid hysteria. Albeit attendance is up from 2021 where average attendance was only 13,758. Tv ratings have also fallen by 30 percent according to Forbes. This is not the result of fans not showing up because the team is tanking like in Oakland. Cleveland is only a game back of the division lead, right in the middle of the playoff hunt. Cleveland is a small market team that is already short on cash in comparison to bigger market teams like New York, LA, and Boston. The loss of revenue from lower ticket sales only exasperates this problem. The team attempted to satisfy the demands of a group of people, woke liberals, that don’t represent their fanbase and now they’re paying the price. The Venn diagram of people offended by their previous name and fans of the team itself may as well be two distinct circles. The Guardians are not the first team to come under attack for a politically incorrect name. In 2020 the Washington Redskins changed their name to the Washington Football Team before settling on the only slightly less generic “Washington Commanders” a year later. Washington caved in the face of immense pressure by members of the media who claimed their 80 year old name was a racist slur. Interestingly enough, the Washington Post ran a poll about the term Redskin, and found that 9 out of 10 native Americans didn’t find the term ‘Redskin’ offensive back in 2016… Huh! Not every team felt compelled to give in to the demands of the woke mob. The Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL came under similar pressure to change their Native American themed name and logo. Instead of throwing away decades of team history and tradition to switch to a soulless new moniker that their fans would have no connection to, they simply said no. Deciding instead to use the notoriety created by their use of the Blackhawk name to honor Native American culture. “We celebrate Black Hawk’s legacy by offering ongoing reverent examples of Native American culture, traditions and contributions, providing a platform for genuine dialogue with local and national Native American groups,” the team continued. “As the team’s popularity grew over the past decade, so did that platform and our work with these important organizations.” Hopefully, this latest iteration of the “get woke go broke” phenomenon will teach teams that the silent majority in America are the ones that pay their bills not the perpetually offended minority.
