If a collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali seems surreal, that's because it is, literally. Hosts Courtney and Emily welcome back Dr. Douglas Kern to the podcast to visit a 2015 Walt Disney Family Museum exhibit through its commemorative book titled, Disney and Dali: Architects of the Imagination, to discuss the friendship between the two artists and, at the time, their unrealized animated short, Destino. The project's completion in 2003 and the opening of Walt Disney World Resort's Gran Destino Tower in 2019 enlightened many fans, including your hosts, to Disney and Dali's friendship and their mutual admiration for surrealism, animation, and cinema. To most, Disney and Dali would seem an unlikely pairing, but as the Oscar nominated animated short, Destino, and artifacts from the Walt Disney Family Museum and The Salvador Dalí Museum proved, the two artists were destined to work together.

The pair is forced to evacuate, leaving the Ronin suit behind. After relocating to the apartment of Bishop's vacationing aunt, Barton sends his children back home, promising to return by Christmas Day. He escorts Bishop to her workplace, then recovers the Ronin suit from a firefighter named Grills at a LARP event. Later, Bishop fails to convince Eleanor of Duquesne's involvement in Armand's death. After challenging Duquesne to a fencing duel, she tries to contact Barton, not knowing that he has allowed himself to be captured by the Tracksuit Mafia.

Underneath the gala, she stumbles onto a black market auction featuring items recovered from the remains of the Avengers Compound, finding Duquesne and his uncle Armand III among the attendees. The auction is interrupted by the Tracksuit Mafia, a Russian street gang who attempts to recover a watch among the items. Bishop recovers Barton's Ronin suit and defeats the Tracksuit Mafia members while wearing it. She escapes to her apartment after rescuing a stray dog and tracks down Armand to investigate further. Bishop discovers that Armand has been murdered in his home and is cornered by the Tracksuit Mafia members after fleeing the crime scene. Barton, who saw a news report of the Ronin's return, rescues Kate from the gangsters.

Thank you for joining us on this season of our Reader's Advisory book group podcast! It's always better when you are here with us to talk about books. We have more genres to discuss, new books to recommend, and we're so glad you're here to join us. We always enjoy our book group podcast, and we hope you do, too! Our full show notes, with links to beverages, books, and resources from this episode are available here! This week we are sharing a special pop culture episode with you! We are looking at the movie King Richard. IMDB describes the plot: “A look at how tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams became who they are after the coaching from their father Richard Williams.” The star of this movie is Will Smith! He's had such a long and varied career, it will be interesting to see him in this new role. The script for this movie was on the 2018 Black List. This is a list assembled annually by Hollywood movie development people. Franklin Leonard worked for Leonardo DiCaprio's production office, and was frustrated by all the good scripts that never got made. So he asked people to name the best unproduced scripts they saw in the last year. He put together the ten most voted for, and called it the Black List. It became an annual list, and the publicity it gives scripts helps push them into getting made! We have more to discuss, so let's settle in and get to the fun part: the book discussion! This week we are taking a quick look at some books about siblings, to celebrate this new movie. Sit back with a beverage you will enjoy, and let's share some books you might enjoy. We always enjoy hosting these book groups with you, and want you to have everything you need for the best experience! And of course, if you are in a library, you can add these books to your collection, or use our suggestions as a place to start in setting up a display for your community members! Do you want to talk about some materials or programming ideas? Check out our Discord channel, talk to us on Twitter or Facebook, or just send us an email! We are here to share ideas across libraries.

Confessions of a D.C. Madam The Politics of Sex, Lies, and Blackmail Confessions of a DC Madam (Trine Day, March 2015) is an autographical account of Henry W. Vinson's odyssey from the humble origins of Williamson, West Virginia to running the largest gay escort service in Washington, DC by the time he was 26 years old. This haunting exposé is the first book to tell the tale of sexually blackmailed politicians and government officials in the U.S. by an individual who actually witnessed these sinister maneuverings first-hand. Confessions of a DC Madam proves that there is a clandestine checks-and-balances system in effect within our government—blackmail. Vinson intricately documents his interactions with various closeted and non-closeted VIPs who solicited the escorts he employed. Moreover, this new book details Vinson's numerous exchanges with a CIA asset whose specialty was sexually compromising the powerbrokers of Washington, DC, and the trials and tribulations Vinson suffered because he was privy to information that could have produced a seismic political scandal. Confessions of a DC Madam details the federal government's illicit, malicious, and relentless attack on Vinson to ensure his silence, which included incarceration rooted in trumped-up charges and Vinson's story shows the reader the illegal activities the government executes to silence those who are privy to the fact that American politicians and power brokers are compromised by their sexual improprieties. This fascinating and shocking facet of government corruption reveals the integral role blackmail plays in American politics and the unbelievable lengths the government perpetrates to silence those in the know. Henry W. Vinson is the former funeral director for W. W. Chambers Funeral Home, who also owned and operated the largest gay escort service in Washington, DC. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Anne Bonny and Mary Read - the most notorious women to swashbuckle and plunder in the ‘golden age of piracy' - were captured near Jamaica by pirate-hunter Jonathan Barnet on 8th November, 1720.Disguised as men for most of their careers, they sailed (and cavorted) with Pirate Captain ‘Calico Jack'. But, when their crimes came to trial, they both avoided being sentenced to death by ‘pleading the belly'.In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly speculate about how Bonny and Read were able to pass as men so convincingly; explain how they met in the ‘pirate republic' of Nassau; and reveal why ‘Robinson Crusoe' author Daniel Defoe may just be responsible for the enduring ‘Reader's Wives' version of Bonny and Read's friendship...CONTENT WARNING: reference to rapeFurther Reading:• ‘Comparing the Female Pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read' (ThoughtCo, 2018): https://www.thoughtco.com/facts-about-anne-bonny-mary-read-2136281• ‘How Anne Bonny and Mary Read Changed The Face Of Female Piracy' (All That's Interesting, 2018):https://allthatsinteresting.com/anne-bonny-mary-read• ‘Behind the myth of a breast-baring pirate' (BBC Reel, 2019): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBVeQwhcjZgFor bonus material and to support the show, visit Patreon.com/RetrospectorsWe'll be back tomorrow!

When my kids were young, I tried narration in my homeschool. But instead of working how it was supposed to, it made my oldest daughter freeze with panic. She actually started hating books she had previously loved. Read-aloud time became fraught. And the quality of her education suffered for it. In today's episode, I'm diving deep into the Charlotte Mason (CM) idea of narration, and offering an idea for what to do if narration simply isn't a good fit for your family. In this episode, you'll hear: What's the goal of narration anyway?What my family does instead of narration (and we like it so! much! better!)A reminder of what we're going for (spoiler alert: narration isn't the only way to get it) Click the play button below: Listener Guide Use the time stamps below to skip to any part of the podcast: 4:23What is narration, exactly?7:08Just find another tool

The team also discuss Jose's beef with Conte, fingerless gloves and what shape commercial lard comes in.
You've probably heard the saying, “The real you comes out when you're drinking.” But is there a scientific explanation that truly supports this? In this week's reader question Annie dives into the ways alcohol affects the frontal lobe of the brain and if lost inhibitions are congruent with who truly are and want to be in the world. Hi. Super exciting news. So The Alcohol Experiment book is released in the expanded edition. What does expanded edition mean? It means that every single day throughout the book there are deep reflective journal entries that have been added with space to write which is so cool and so exciting. So you really make it your own. And, the reason I did this is because I truly believe that the deepest wisdom you will access throughout the 30 days of The Alcohol Experiment comes from within you. You know more about what's best for you than anybody else in the entire world. And I know sometimes that can be hard to believe but when you really access your own wisdom it is so profound. So you can pick up your own copy at alcoholexperimentbook.com and check it out. It's really powerful. And as always, rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast as it truly helps the message reach somebody who might need to hear it today.

Deciding to remove alcohol from your life is a HUGE personal accomplishment. So what do you do when difficult life circumstances threaten to derail your sobriety? Tune in to hear Annie's story about how she realized that external circumstances were not really the problem during her personal struggle to become alcohol-free. And how you too can quiet the outside noise and begin finding your own peace. Hi, it's Annie Grace. I wanted to interrupt this podcast, I guess the end of this podcast, to say that if you are totally serious about actually truly and forevermore transforming your relationship with alcohol, really leaving it behind in the rear view mirror for once and forever more, and changing your psychology about it, we have a program called The PATH that is created specifically for you. Now it's not for you if you are still dabbling or still trying to figure out where you want to be or maybe even still want to moderate. All those things are fine, but if you are beyond that and you're like, "No, I just want to be done with this. I'm ready to invest some time and I'm ready to just make this happen." I want you to check out nakedmindpath.com, and join us in The PATH where you can truly make this lasting change you want in your life.
