"America" would not exist without the South, nor would American conservatism exist without the Southern tradition. You could also make the same case for American liberalism to some degree. In other words, "America" was the South for much of its history. A recent piece at The American Conservative makes this case, so I discuss it on this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show. https://mcclanahanacademy.com https://brionmcclanahan.com/support http://learntruehistory.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/brion-mcclanahan/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/brion-mcclanahan/support
We're back after another short hiatus! This week, Daily Grindhouse's Preston Fassel joins us to talk about two films featuring our heroes in erstwhile dysfunctional families: A Love Song for Bobby Long and Matchstick Men! In Love Song for Bobby Long, Travolta plays the titular Southern-fried English professor, a hard-drinking, hard-living man dealing with his itinerant ways in N'Awlins, only to have to grow up when a young girl (Scarlett Johansson, not quite yet playing black widows or Japanese people) shows up to claim the house he's squatting in as hers. Contrast that with Ridley Scott's masterful Matchstick Men, in which Cage fills the tic-filled shoes of a con man struggling with Tourette's and OCD, and what happens when a young girl (Alison Lohman) who may be his daughter comes into his life. One's a sprightly, energetic dramedy with all the power of an actor and director at the top of his game (plus Sam Rockwell dancing!). The other? Well, it's got Travolta saying “pussy” a lot. Take a listen!

According to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, recreational fishers are routinely violating the 400-metre protection buffers around Southern Resident killer whales. The Foundation is now calling for a complete end to recreational salmon fishing in southern B.C. Joining us again on The Blue Fish Radio Show is Chris Bos, Coordinator of a south Vancouver Island Chinook salmon hatchery, President of the South Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition, and Director with the Public Fishery Alliance. Join Chris and I as we discuss the need for science-based precautionary conservation measures in the fight to save these whales and BC's billion-dollar marine recreational fishery.
When I researched my family's history, I confirmed that all my grandparents were born during or soon after the Civil War. The documents I found supported stories I had heard from my parents. When I was a child, Mother and Daddy told me that when the young men who became their grandfathers volunteered in 1861 for the Confederate army, their families assumed that whipping the Yankees would be easy. After all, they reasoned, farm boys in the South were toughened to hard work and outdoor life while the city boys in the North were soft. Southern parents believed their sons would be home in time for the fall harvest. From family stories and corroborating historical documents, I know a bit about what happened during the Civil War to three of my great-grandfathers. One of Mothers' grandfathers died in June 1864 of wounds suffered in combat near Petersburg, VA. I still have an original note he wrote home two months earlier complaining that the men of the village who had “feigned illness” to avoid the draft were not doing their part to look after the women and children left behind by those who agreed to serve. Another of Mother's grandfathers spent most of the war at Fort Fisher, near the North Carolina town of Wilmington. When Fort Fisher fell in January 1865, he became a POW at Point Lookout, MD. Daddy's paternal grandfather, drafted in the summer of 1864 at age 48, was assigned guard duty at the infamous Salisbury (NC) Prison. He was one of the fatalities in November 1864 when harshly treated prisoners rioted. However, I recall no family lore, and have found no records, of Daddy's other grandfather. “Damn Yankee?” describes my search for who my fourth great-grandfather may have been.

BEERS: The guys are back on the road! We make the short trip to one of Providence's newest breweries, Moniker, to interview the masterminds behind it all: Jeff Goodno and Bryan Benedict. In this on-site interview, Jeff and Bryan discuss their past experiences on both the brewing and branding/sales side of the brewery process, and what ultimately led them to create a new venture together. We discuss the start-up of Moniker, why they chose a former auto body shop as their destination, and what they looked for in hiring their head brewer. We also discuss their partnership with Southern-style comfort-food joint Bucktown, their close proximity to a fellow brewery (and recent podcast guest) Beer on Earth, and what's next for Moniker. BUSINESS: Bitcoin is rallying back! After being clamped by China a few weeks back, $BTC is showing resilience in the face of adversity. Some believe this is due to the SEC approving a Bitcoin-related ETF (ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF) which starts trading Tuesday. Could this be a wise investment? In the world of sports betting, the state of New Jersey has eclipsed $1.01 billion in wagers in a single month, shattering the previous record of $966m. Revenue is up 40% from 2021! What's next for sports betting? BALLS: Rapid fire!!

It's part moth, it's part man, Mothman. This week, Anthony and crew hear 3 stories about the Southern urban legend who differs from other cryptids in that people believe it is a benevolent creature. Can you figure out which one is the lie before the end of the episode? Story 1: A woman is suddenly drawn to her window, where she encounters the Mothman creature. Even though she's terrified, she feels a strange comfort and she begins sensing something from him. A few weeks later, there is a terrible bridge collapse, where various others had previously reported seeing the being. Story 2: A young boy (named Mister) comes out of a meditation to see the giant Mothman before him. They begin communicating telepathically where the boy feels a variety of emotions, ending in complete tranquility, something that has lasted his entire life. Story 3: A man living in a trailer is awakened by a noise. When he investigates, he finds the Mothman hovering around his baby sister. The man screams, causing the creature to panic, grab the man and fly out of the trailer. The next day, his parents find him unconscious on the ground, living with the trauma of the experience to this day. Plus, the guys play another round of "Guess Who" but instead of a person, they have to guess the creature, Want to submit a truth or a lie? Send in your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org!

GRANT, THE FRAGILE UNION AND THE CRISIS OF 1876From Bret Baier, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning chief political anchor for Fox News Channel, and the anchor and executive editor of Special Report with Bret Baier, comes TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC: Ulysses S. Grant, the Fragile Union, and the Crisis of 1876 (Custom House; Hardcover; $28.99; on sale October 12, 2021), a riveting and timely reassessment of Ulysses S. Grant. This first installment in Baier's new book series illuminates the life and legacy of one of America's most consequential yet misunderstood leaders, Ulysses S. Grant, whose actions both as general and as president played an unparalleled role in preserving the United States.Published against the backdrop of our own time's extreme political division and recent contested election, Baier's meticulously researched narrative could not be more relevant. While Grant's military genius during the Civil War is rightly celebrated, it has overshadowed our appreciation of his remarkable political leadership as president during the Reconstruction Era. Baier argues that Grant's two terms in the White House were equally consequential, notably his commitment to protecting the rights of African Americans and suppressing the Ku Klux Klan. All the while, Grant sought to all hold together the fragile Union-a mission that would be tested by a crisis that consumed his last days in office, one that threated to plunge the nation back into civil war.Born a tanner's son in rugged Ohio in 1822 and battle-tested by the Mexican American War, Grant met his destiny on the bloody fields of the Civil War. His daring and resolve as a general gained the attention of President Lincoln who appointed Grant as Lieutenant General of the Union Army in March 1864. Within a year, Grant's forces had seized Richmond and forced Robert E. Lee to surrender. Four years later, the reunified nation faced another leadership void when, following Lincoln's assassination, an unworthy successor completed his term. Again Grant answered the call. At stake once more was the future of the Union, for though the Southern states had been defeated, it remained to be seen if the former Confederacy could be reintegrated into the country-and if the Union could ensure the rights and welfare of African Americans in the South. Grant met the challenge by boldly advancing an agenda of Reconstruction.In his final weeks in the White House, however, Grant faced a crisis that threatened to undo his life's work. The contested presidential election of 1876 produced no clear victory for either Republican Rutherford B. Hayes or Democrat Samuel Tilden, who carried most of the former Confederacy. Soon Southern states vowed to revolt if Tilden was not declared the victor. Grant was determined to use his influence to conserve the Union, establishing an electoral commission to peaceably settle the issue. Grant brokered a grand bargain: the installation of Republican Hayes to the presidency, with concessions to the Democrats that effectively ended Reconstruction. This painful, though perhaps necessary compromise saved the Union, but the consequences of Reconstruction's roll-back stills haunt the country.Deep with contemporary resonance and brimming with fresh detail, TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC reveals Grant, for all his complexity, to be among the first rank of American heroes.PRISE FOR TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC"With To Rescue The Republic, Bret Baier, the nation's leading reporter of history, has written a veritable tour de force. This remarkable book is history as it should be: magnificently composed, meticulously researched, and brimming with lessons for today's divided political arena. Baier has brought to life the riveting but too often forgotten story of how US Grant preserved the Republic at one of its moments of greatest peril. This is not just a tale for our age, but an absorbing tale for the ages. It belongs on the bookshelf of every lover of history."- Jay Winik, New York Times bestselling author of April 1865 and 1944"Bret Baier's To Rescue the Republic is narrative history at its absolute finest. With great verve and a fair-and-balanced ethic, Baier brilliantly recounts the heroic life of Ulysses S. Grant - as Civil War general, U.S. President, Reconstruction Era leader and beloved national icon. His dramatic retelling of the election of 1876 which pitted Samuel J Tilden against Rutherford B. Hayes is stupendous. A fast-paced, thrilling and enormously important book. Highly recommended!"- Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University and author of American Moonshot

Television has played a starring role in advancing culinary culture in the United States. From Food Network shows that have introduced bashful eaters to a world of new, global flavors to culinary competitions which have served as launchpads for chefs' careers, the rise of food TV has undeniably influenced the role food plays in our everyday lives.Among many chefs who've seen the impact of television appearances on their careers is Jamika Pessoa, a Southern-born chef with roots in the Caribbean whose vibrant personality and unique culinary style has endeared her to television audiences across the nation.In this week's episode, we chat with Pessoa about her culinary background, her experience on shows like “The Next Food Network Star,” Good Morning America and Dr. Oz's new series, “The Dish on Oz.” Along the way, she shares her passion for sharing her culinary talents, gives us a glimpse of her plans for the future and offers insights on her upcoming appearance at the Kohler Food & Wine Festival, which kicks off on Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021.
On today's Saturday episode we delve into the cursed wreck in the gulf of mexico! Whether you believe that the mysterious Mica Wreck in the Gulf of Mexico is cursed or a victim of coincidence and the fragility of technology, the fact remains that very little is indeed known about the mysterious ship. While roughly dated, the only artefact ever recovered is that small scrap of copper plating and a few burnt planks. Stay Tuned!
Over-worked or over-entertained? Our humanity gives us the joint gifts of both activity and passivity. We act and we are acted upon. But how do we balance and mediate these states? How do we cultivate long practices and habits that help us to inhabit the space between activity and passivity, bringing them together in a beautiful agency?Poet and linguist Alysia Harris joins Matt Croasmun for a discussion of that space between active and passive in human life—bringing the concepts of wonder, awareness/attention, patient receptivity to the natural world and to God, bearing witness to the autonomy and action of the other, and how she cultivates and meditates on these things in her own life.Show NotesNorman Wirzba, This Sacred Life: Humanity's Place in a Wounded WorldActive life vs passive lifeIntermediate category between activity and passivity: attentive awarenessActive receptivity and bearing witnessHuman beings enacting and reactingWitness as perception and responseCarl Sagan, Robin Kimmerer, Timothy WilburnWonder as a mediating emotion between active and passive"I'm not the entire system."Granting autonomy to a natural systemMaking the right impact through granting the sovereignty of the otherAdam and Eve as gardeners—beauty vs productivityGenesis: "Avad and Shamar"—Till and Keep, Serve and ProtectRestrain, observe, attend, and magnify"Me and God"Capitalism, scarcity mentality, and "enough"Ping-ponging between over-worked and over-entertainment—deficient visions of activity and deficient visions of passivityMark 4: Parable of the Sower.

At age 10 she wrote her first poem, after hearing about sonnets in English class. That class began her life-long love of poetry and the literary arts.Alysia went to The University of Pennsylvania where she experienced her first success as a writer and a performer. In 2008 she featured on the HBO documentary: Brave New Voices where she wowed audiences with her piece "That Girl".

Alysia received her MFA in poetry from NYU in 2014 and her PhD in linguistics from Yale University in 2019. Her dissertation “The Non-Aspectual Meaning of African-American English ‘Aspect' Markers” breaks with traditional analyses and explores the discourse-oriented uses of the preverbal particles ‘be' and ‘done' in varieties of African-American English.Although she has experienced scholastic success, poetry has always come first in her heart. Cave Canem fellow, winner of the 2014 and 2015 Stephen Dunn Poetry Prizes, Pushcart Nominee, her poetry has appeared in Best American Poets, Indiana Review, The Offing, Callaloo, Solstice Literary Magazine, Squaw Valley Review, Letters Journal, and Vinyl Magazine among others. Her first chapbook How Much We Must Have Looked Like Stars to Stars won the 2015 New Women's Voices Chapbook Contest and is available for purchase on site.Alysia was also a founding member of the internationally known performance poetry collective, The Strivers Row and has garnered over 5 million views on YouTUBE. She has toured nationally for the last 10 years and also performed at the United Nations and the US Embassies in Jordan and Ukraine, as well as in Australia, Canada, Germany, Slovakia, South Africa, the UAE, and the UK.Alysia now lives in Atlanta, GA where she works as a consultant for the Morehouse Center for Excellence in Education and as arts and soul editor at Scalawag Magazine, a nonprofit POC-led, women run media organization focused on Southern movement, community, and dissent. She is working on a book of poems and a collection of essays about the intersections of faith, violence, and the natural world.

Southern deer get hunted hard, and the big ones don't come easy, even on a well-managed place like Realtree Farms. Tyler Jordan shot the farm's biggest buck to date back in late September, and the story of how that buck came to be is a testament to cooperative wildlife management among all the neighboring landowners and hunt clubs. In this Outpost episode, we'll hear about that buck, talk about cold fronts, and how southern hunting has changed over the past decade — and the slammer bucks that are coming out of the South as a result.
The crisis on the Southern border continues to get worse. With a record number of aliens being apprehended and crossing the border, fentanyl and other illegal drugs pouring into the country, and the current administration's seeming lack of interest in rectifying the situation it created, many are wondering what, if anything, can be done. Given […]

Got drunk and then got lost in Dublin... At night. We only got to see the southern towns all the way around the Southern portion. Beautiful places all over. We met a gal Bartender from Boston who went over there and hasn't left. I have your CD that has the resterant on it. Irish Dring Songs? Brodignagian Bards I think. I just love it. My daughter loves it too. She had seen a gentleman who told the story of "an Irish Christmas". You make it. I think your family might too. it's wonderful. Slainte," Ken Katen sent you a message on Patreon: "Hi, Marc - Listening to your Love of Planet Earth (#491- I'm catching up on my music podcasts), I thought it was well past time that I thank you for so many years of WONDERFUL Irish & Celtic music. I've been listening to your podcast since very nearly the beginning, sometimes more religiously than others. Sure, it's been grand to hear - and now to get to see a bit of - you, how you and your family have grown and, even tho we've never met face to face, I feel like I know you, just a bit. I remember when you moved (from Texas?) to New Orleans, when you met your LadyLove, and when your wee daughter needed such a grievous surgery (I believe I lit a candle). I hope you all are doing fine, and I'm glad I can help you here at Patreon. I wish I could do more, but I'm supporting a few artists here and [buying] music when I can. One of my favoritest memories, from many years ago now, is of bombing along the dirt ‘backcountry' roads of Joshua Tree National Park, in my then-new 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD, windows up to keep the dust out, a/c on and your podcast playing LOUD. That show was one when you played a pub-ish song (I think one of yours) that was a paen to Joss Whedon, over whom you also rhapsodized before & after the song. I'd tried “Firefly,” it hadn't resonated, but you convinced me to give it another try. By the second episode I was intrigued, by the third I'd fallen hopelessly in love, both with Serenity and her crew (WHAT? only 14 episodes??!!) and with all things Whedon. I had my own grievous surgery/recovery awhile after that, and I loaded up my Netlix CD queue with Angel, based on its description of a troubled vampire trying to navigate his way through the modern world, and when I realized it was a Buffy spinoff, I went back and started watching Buffy until Angel spun off, then watched them in airing order (compulsive engineer here) until they both wrapped up. And since then, Dollhouse, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (well, a lot of it, anyway) - he's so darn [prolific]. I'm not sure whether to say “Thank you” or “Curse ye.” ;) And along the way, I've learned so much about Celtic history and culture from listening to your show - Italian Celts - who knew?? Your taste and selections have grown more and more discerning, and the old favorites come around again too, and I'm always a sucker for a beautiful ballad or a stirring dance instrumental. And your commitment to showcasing diversity in the Celtic music world is outstanding - not only your women only shows, but now your commitment putting together a Pride show of LGBT+ artists. As a gay man myself, who went to the first ever Northern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire - in my defense, I WAS still in high school - and spent some time in my 20's hanging out with the SCA, I know we fae folk have always been a big, but more-or-less closeted part of the re-creationist/Celtic music and cultural world, which [can] present as overtly misogynistic and heterocentric. Just like in real life, sometimes, I guess. But closets are for kilts. And your hand made chain mail, if you've got it. So a big rainbow THANK YOU! .?? for all you're doing to bring out its beautiful diversity. All this has been a longwinded way (I'm Sicilian and Greek, so...) of saying “Thank you” for all the pleasure you've given me. Now that I'm retired, and locked down here in San Francisco, I plan to mark my calendar for the next Celtfather show. Once we're past this dratted Crown Virus thingy, p'raps I'll be able to join you on a Celtic Invasion Vacation, if you're still doing them. Bliadhna Mhath Ùr”
Kara Walker is one of our most influential living artists. Walker won a MacArthur Fellowship (the “genius” grant) before she turned thirty, and became well known for her silhouettes, works constructed from cut black paper using a technique that refers to craft forms of the Victorian era. Walker has put modest materials to work to address very large concerns: the lived experience and historical legacy of American slavery. Though she often depicts the racial and sexual violence that went largely unspoken for centuries in the past, her work is aimed squarely at the modern world. “What I set out to do, in a way, worked too well,” she said, “which was to say, if I pretty everything up with hoop skirts and Southern belles then nobody will recognize that I'm talking about them. And then they didn't! They said, ‘The past is so bad.' But I'm not from the past. . . . I do live here now. And so do you.” Walker was interviewed at The New Yorker Festival by Thelma Golden, the director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem.
Walker Hayes, most recognized as of late for his smash hit “Fancy Like”, which reached number one on Billboard's Country charts in 2021, joins Kaitlyn to give everyone a solid dose of down to earth. With his laid back attitude, relaxing Southern accent, living in the suburbia of suburbia, wearing the same clothes for days in a row, while eating a grilled cheese (and Applebee's) - it's the reality check we all need. The joy is the time spent with his family and none of the “bells and whistles” that come with fame. Walker talks about life as a father of 6, how unexpected the success and attention for “Fancy Like” has been and the larger than life “stage” of social media. He shares that the most fun has been sharing the success with his family, especially his teenage daughter who made the viral TikTok video with him on a whim one day when she just needed to dance! Walker also openly shares about his sobriety journey, how AA meetings have saved his life countless times and the difficult loss of his daughter, Oakleigh.
