26th president of the United States
The 1800s were an era of big questions, many of which we answered in cruel and selfish ways. Is one race better than another? Is one religion? If so, which one? In what ways? Is one economic system better than another? Is one system of governance like a democratic republic like the US, or socialist, or monarchy, theocracy, communism, best? Some people answered these questions with a resounding "yes". But if we think our people and ways are better than anyone else's, what responsibility do we have to spread those things? Men like Henry Cabot Lodge and Theodore Roosevelt were firm believers in social Darwinism, though their vision of it meant teaching those less "civilized" people our ways. And they were okay with the United States taking power over them. Meanwhile, there were men like William Jennings Bryan who refused to think of others in social Darwinism terms. He spent years fighting that dark philosophy, ultimately prosecuting the Scopes Monkey trial to stop the spread of social Darwinism. But the seeds of eugenics were planted. Caught in the middle were the people of Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Phillippines, and other colonies of the Spanish empire. Spain was busy imprisoning Cubans in concentration camps. Their ruthless behavior toward America's neighbors caught the attention of the US Senate, which was already champing at the bit for a fight. Men in the United States were worried about their waning influence on society. Groups bellyached about how men were not men any more thanks to cities and offices. In the minds of some, war was the answer to weak-willed men. And Spain provided that war. Our guest today is Paul T. McCartney author of “Power and Progress: American National Identity, the War of 1898, and the Rise of American Imperialism”. He teaches at Towson University. Discussion Questions: Do you believe your people are somehow superior to another people group? Why? Does that sound like an attitude Jesus would have? If you are somehow superior, what is your responsibility to other people? Should the US help people who are being oppressed around the world? When should we intervene? Do you think that men are in decline? If so, what is the answer to that? Do you better relate to Teddy Roosevelt or William Jennings Bryan when it comes to war? Or are you a pacifist? How would Jesus have responded to the cruelty of Spain? What do you think about social Darwinism?

“People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care”. While those words are attributed to Teddy Roosevelt, when business coach, consultant and recovering corporate lawyer Claudia Williams shared them during her conversation, you can just felt it from the heart. She's the kind of person you want in your posse. In fact, when she was part of The Hershey Company's legal team, she actually had what she called, “The Chocolate Posse”. It was a place where ideas flowed and friendship, mentorship and leadership was always present. Or as she calls it “Friendtorship”: the pillars that make a good leader in the workplace as well as the home. On this episode of HIListically Speaking, Claudia shares her story: The lessons she learned as a child in a home. One she says was filled with love, but also domestic violence and divorce. How she vowed to create a positive space personally and professionally. And how her own child's words lead her to make the biggest decision yet…leaving “The Sweetest Place on Earth” to follow her heart. But not before learning the secret behind the Reece's Peanut Butter Cup.

During his presidency, Roosevelt did more to conserve America's natural resources and its places of special beauty than any other president. He convened state executives to aid in the cause, which led him to create the National Governors Association.
This is the eighth and final episode of Season Three: The Bully Pulpit. This season, we explored many domestic policy issues, such as healthcare, women's suffrage, and land rights. But here in the 21st century, we all know that the president's voice reaches far beyond the borders of the United States. Has it always been this way? And how does the bully pulpit reach audiences abroad? We invited three scholars to help us understand the many ways presidents have utilized the bully pulpit to speak to the world. We'll begin our conversation with Dr. Jay Sexton, Professor of History at the University of Missouri. Dr. Sexton explains how presidents thought about foreign policy and the bully pulpit in the 19th century, and how that all changed when Teddy Roosevelt took office.We' then move to the presidents of the World War II era with Dr. Kaete O'Connell. A former fellow with us at the SMU Center for Presidential History, Dr. O'Connell is now a fellow at Yale university. She explains how WWII ushered in a new era in presidential communications abroad.Finally, we invited Dr. Sam Lebovic of George Mason University to share his fascinating insights on how the US government expanded the use of the bully pulpit to include a much more complex, bureaucratic, and powerful web of communication that spanned the globe. We promise you'll never think of passports the same way again.
Americans added their own twist to white slavery narratives around the turn of the century. They placed a greater emphasis on the threat of immigration. The new flow of immigrants from Russia and Eastern Europe made middle class Americans anxious about the changing ethnic character of the country. This growing fear was seized upon by President Teddy Roosevelt's Immigration Bureau inspector: Marcus Braun. Braun, himself an immigrant from Hungary, traveled the country investigating white slavery. His shocking report was echoed by a congressional investigation. This provided all the pretext necessary for the creation White Slave Traffic Act in 1910. “White slavery” became much more than a narrative. It was law with which the federal government could enforce its version of sexual morality. This is a 10-part series brought to you by the QAA podcast.

It's the week of our 300th episode and we managed to find something new for you, dear listeners. Today we have Teddy Roosevelt Jr, the son of a person we've previously covered, Teddy Roosevelt, obviously.

Plus, they tried to cancel Joe Rogan, but they failed, and that's a Bright Spot! And we finish off with a quote from Teddy Roosevelt that will have you saying, “Whoa!”
On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, the progressive movement is the application of Marxism to American society. Progressive intellectual John Dewey once wrote at great length about how well Stalin was doing with government-run education. Dewy felt that teaching subjects without a social purpose uniting children in support of their government. Dewey enjoyed the support of Democrats and Republicans like Teddy Roosevelt. The goal of the progressives has always been to control what is taught in the classroom and this is why small children are being indoctrinated against capitalism and success and to reject the family structure they come from. This is precisely what is taking place in our country today. Then, President Biden says that when your kids are in the classroom they're no longer your kids, in effect, suggesting that they now belong to the government and the teacher's union. Millions from the American Rescue plan went to schools for Critical Race Theory training in the name of the COVID pandemic. Kudos to all the parents and other citizens standing up against tyranny. Later, Sec. Mayorkas has proposed a 'disinformation governance board' at the Dept. of Homeland Security. All members of the free press should object to the creation of a government ministry of truth that decides what is true and what is false. All of this while the border remains open, and the economy shrinks by 1.4%. Afterward, filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza joins the show to discuss his latest film 2000 Mules which chronicles the actions of ballot mules delivering harvested ballots to COVID ballot boxes during the 2020 election. D'Souza explained how vote stash-houses work within leftwing democrat districts. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Live from the No Panic Zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice—God Bless America—God Bless You and lets do this! This is the Steve Gruber show—and I am here to tell you the truth—the New Dr. of Democracy—and my prescription will cure this nation—BUT you have to follow Doctors orders! Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— Former President Donald Trump—is raising incredible amounts of political cash—and reported $19 Million in the first quarter—with $125 Million on hand—seems he is ready to fight the Woke Socialists— TWO— Speaking of Woke— The Magic Kingdom is no longer so magical it seems—as Florida moves to strip the entertainment venue of Walt Disney World of its special status and governing abilities— THREE— The Biden Administration is not serious at all about stemming the flow of illegals into America— How do I know—well the evidence is overwhelming—and as I have said many times—if the President wanted the border closed—it could be done in about 24 hours—you call in the national guard—and then ask local police and sheriffs departments to work with Homeland Security—the Border Patrol and ICE— Trust me—if I was President—I would have it closed in about one day—as soon as that was handled—I would take bids from private companies to complete the border wall—and we would evaluate what kinds of costs would be involved—BUT more importantly how effective the barriers on the border would be— When that was underway—I would declare an end to ALL immigration except for the brightest and the best to come to the United States—you see we take in about 1 Million legal immigrants every year in this country—which is more than the rest of the world combined—and frankly the way I see it—we have taken in several years worth of immigrants—that we don't know where millions are—or what they are doing— So before we take in any more—we have to figure out where we are—and how these millions of illegals are either escorted out of the country or are allowed to assimilate—it would likely be a combination of both of these items— To be fair—we will never be able to root them all out—BUT we can demand they learn the language of the nation—that is English—and that is NOT racist—we are an English speaking nation—that has hundreds of other languages used—BUT we speak English—and if you want to be a legal citizen—you have to as well in no more than 5 years—exactly as Teddy Roosevelt allowed— There is the 3 step plan to solve the immigration crisis—that really is a crisis because of one simple thing—Democrats— There really is not one thing that could be presented that would show otherwise—this invasion at our southern border is intentional and the Democrats have thought for years it would benefit them—however—Hispanics are rejecting the socialist far left Democrats in record numbers—and last week Axios found just 26% support for Joe Biden among Hispanics—the lowest of any group—period— So again—the 3-step plan— Close the border Finish the wall Stop ALL immigration- period- until further notice!

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events 1619 Birth of Jan van Riebeeck, Dutch navigator and colonial administrator of the Dutch East India Company. In 1660, Jan planted a hedge, now known as Van Riebeeck's Hedge, to mark the border of the Dutch East India Company settlement in Cape Town, South Africa. The hedge was made up of native wild almond trees (Brabejum stellatifolium). Today, parts of the hedge still live in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Bishopscourt. The Van Riebeeck Hedge is not considered a National Monument in South Africa. 1752 Birth of Humphry Repton (no ‘e' in Humphry!), English landscape designer. Humphry was trained and molded by the great Capability Brown. Yet as he matured, Humphry began to forge his own path in his approach to design and led a transformation of English gardens that was all his own. He designed over 400 gardens, and his picturesque landscapes are known for their gently rolling vistas, attractive clumps of trees, terraces, and homes nestled in amongst shrubs and foliage. Humphry wanted landscapes to bring out “the natural beauty” and minimize “the natural defects.” Like many successful modern landscape designers, Humphry put a great deal of energy into planning his designs. He painstakingly created these gorgeous red leather portfolios for his clients. His red books, as he called them, showcased his design ideas. Humphry's clients could see his pastoral watercolors depicting the current state of their property. Then they would lift a flap of paper and see what their property would look like after Humphry improved it. It was a kind of popup book for their property. Today Humphry's red books are regarded as impressive works of art - and many have been preserved in public and private collections. Humphry Repton coined the term landscape gardener. He had the term carved into his pinebark business cards. In 1818, Humphry died, and per his request, he was buried in a rose garden. Humphry used these words for his epitaph: Unmixed with others shall my dust remain; But moldering, blended, melting into earth, Mine shall give form and color to the rose. And while its vivid blossoms cheer mankind, Its perfumed odor shall ascend to Heaven. 1816 Birth of Charlotte Brontë, English novelist, and poet. Charlotte was the oldest of the three Brontë sisters (Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë) who survived into adulthood. Their novels became classics of English literature. The sisters published their first collaborative work called Poems under the pseudonym of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. They wanted to hide their gender to help sales, so the sisters kept the first letter of their first names: Charlotte was Currer, Emily was Ellis, and Anne was Acton. Still, only two copies of Poems were sold. Emma Emmerson wrote a piece called The Brontë Garden. In it, she revealed: The Brontës were not ardent gardeners, although… Emily and Anne treasured their currant bushes as ‘their own bit of fruit garden'. While they may not have been avid gardeners, they knew enough about growing flowers for Charlotte to write: Emily wishes to know if the Sicilian Pea (Pisum sativum)and the Crimson cornflower are hardy flowers, or if they are delicate and should be sown in warm and sheltered situations. In her writing, Charlotte could be a little glum about flowers. In Villette (1853), Charlotte wrote, I like to see flowers growing, but when they are gathered, they cease to please. I look on them as things rootless and perishable; their likeness to life makes me sad. I never offer flowers to those I love; I never wish to receive them from hands dear to me. In The Professor (1857), Charlotte wrote, In sunshine, in prosperity, the flowers are very well; but how many wet days are there in life—November seasons of disaster, when a man's hearth and home would be cold indeed, without the clear, cheering gleam of intellect. 1838 Birth of John Muir, Scottish-American naturalist, conservationist, and author. John Muir was known by many names: "John of the Mountains,” “Father of Yosemite,” and "Father of the National Parks.” John's work to preserve Yosemite resulted in a famous picture of himself posing with President Teddy Roosevelt on Overhanging Rock at the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite in 1903. There's a fun little story about John and Charles Sprague Sargent, the director of the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard, that was featured in a 1915 article. The two men had gone on a fall trip to hike the mountains in North Carolina. John found the scenery so inspiring that when they got to the top of Grandfather Mountain, he began to sing and dance and jump around, while Charles just stood there. This must have been a common trait among the botanists and academics John knew because he once wrote, In drying plants, botanists often dry themselves. Dry words and dry facts will not fire hearts. John is remembered with these words. The mountains are calling, and I must go. Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world. Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation Royal Gardens of the World by Mark Lane This book came out in 2020, and the subtitle is 21 Celebrated Gardens from the Alhambra to Highgrove and Beyond, and the illustrated cover is spectacular. This book is a celebration of Royal Gardens, and Mark does a brilliant job of sharing the history, the plantings, and the evolution of each garden. And in addition to all of that, he highlights some of the key plant or signature plants of these spaces and then shares all the behind-the-scenes details about how these gardens were designed and laid out. Now the gardens that are profiled are located primarily in Europe and Asia. But as Mark points out in his introduction, Many more Royal Gardens are waiting to be visited and researched, and each tells its own story. Mark says, I am simply the interpreter and the messenger. Sometimes the story focuses on restoration, others follow the lives of the main protagonists and other still simply chart the course of history. It's also worth noting that history is not isolated. These gardens are a response to events occurring throughout Europe, Russia, the Far East, and elsewhere And Marriages between members of Royal households in turn introduced different ideas and creative passions which were reflected in their gardens. Now, as you can imagine, entire books have been written about each of these gardens individually, but Mark's intention here is to celebrate the art of gardening through some of the finest garden jewels that have ever been created. This book is 240 pages of a five-star book on Amazon about Royal Gardens, their history, their fantastic designs, and their signature plants. You can get a copy of Royal Gardens of the World by Mark Lane and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $25. Botanic Spark Today, April 21, is the National Day of Sa'di ("SAH-dee"), the Master of Persian prose and poetry who was born in 1210. Sa'di lived in Shiraz ("SHE-raz"). In his lifetime, and through the 19th century, Shiraz was a center for growing grapes and great wines. (Shiraz wine is from Shiraz.) Shiraz was also a center for learning, literature, gardens, and poetry. The poet, Hafez, was also from Shiraz. Now, although he was born and raised in Shiraz, Sa'di spent much of his life traveling. And over three decades, he met and interacted with people from different places, with different customs, traditions, and languages. And his constant traveling led Sa'di to a place of acceptance and love for all humanity. Sa'di once wrote these poignant words of understanding: Sa'di once wrote these poignant words of understanding, I bemoaned the fact I had no shoes Until I saw the man who had no feet. And there was a common Persian saying that goes, Each word of Sa'di has 72 meanings. Today, Persian scholars believe that Sa'di is Shakespeare-like in terms of his understanding of the human condition, and in various literary ways, he shared his insights. Now you might be surprised to learn that Ralph Waldo Emerson was a Sa'di fan. Emerson felt that study's work was biblical in terms of the wisdom that he was trying to impart. In fact, Emerson wrote about Sa'di, and one of his verses went like this. The forest waves, the morning breaks, The pastures sleep, ripple the lakes, Leaves twinkle, flowers like persons be, And life pulsates in rock or tree. Saadi! so far thy words shall reach; Suns rise and set in Saadi's speech. In terms of a legacy, Sa'di's best-known works are Bustan ("Boo-ston") (The Orchard) and Gulistan ("Goo-luh-ston") (The Rose Garden). Now there's a very old copy of the Gulistan that features a beautiful painting of Sa'di in a rose garden, and I shared it inthe Facebook Group for the show. Now I wanted to end the show today with a little something from The Rose Garden or The Gulistan because, in that book, Sa'di is led to a garden by a friend on this day, April 21st, back in 1258. And that's why today is National Sa'di Day. It's the day he was brought to a garden. And so there is a verse that is a favorite among gardeners from The Gulistan or The Rose Garden, and it goes like this. If... thou art bereft, And ...Two loaves alone to thee are left, Sell one, and with the dole Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul. Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.
When Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in to replace the assassinated William McKinley, he was well aware that almost every previous accidental president had been a failure, and none had won reelection.He had a plan to buck the trend, and it started with winning over McKinley's cabinet.

Today we're with James A. Ross, author of the book, "Hunting Teddy Roosevelt", a historical novel that veers into TR's African adventures and an assassination attempt. There is this line from the book: “Roosevelt is not only hunting in Africa, he's being hunted.” And then…On the podcast, Ross talks about Roosevelt, a true progressive who was responsible for the 40-hour work week, backed the establishment of labor unions, and led trustbusting efforts against corporate conglomerates. Did all of that lead to the assassination attempt described in "Hunting Teddy Roosevelt"? Ross has some thoughts on that.Ross has been a Peace Corps volunteer in the Congo, a Congressional staffer and a Wall Street lawyer. "Hunting Teddy Roosevelt" won the Independent Press Distinguished Favorite Award for historical fiction and the American Fiction Award in the Adventure/Historical category. It was a finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award and the American Book Festival Award for historical fiction. Ross's debut mystery novel, COLDWATER REVENGE also won numerous prestigious awards, and his short fiction has appeared in numerous literary journals and his short story, Aux Secours, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

It was Teddy Roosevelt who once said, people don't care about how much you know until they know how much you care. Being a good steward of truth means recognizing the great responsibility we have to reflect God's love to the world, otherwise no one will care about what we have to say. Charles Tapp shares more of what this means with his message "The Stewardship of Truth."
Welcome to March 25th, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate strange new worlds and acts of bravery. To say that JRR Tolkien had an impact on popular culture is an understatement. Without The Lord of the Rings, we might never have experienced Harry Potter or played Dungeons & Dragons. Before he wrote anything about a Hobbit, Tolkien was a professor of Old English literature and a student of language. So when he created Middle Earth, he came up with an entire history for his fictional world. And wrote not one, but FIVE different languages exclusively for the books. Quite the perfection. On Tolkien Reading Day, celebrate your favorite escape into a perfectly curated world. The Medal of Honor is bestowed upon our military for extraordinary acts of service. In the case of Teddy Roosevelt it was awarded for his acts of apparent defiance during the Spanish American War. But not until many decades later. Colonel Roosevelt grew impatient as progress was stalled on a charge of the San Juan hill. He managed to convince his immediate supervisor to allow his Rough Riders to push ahead. With only four or five men, Teddy was the first American to arrive in the Spanish trenches. This brave act turned the tide of the entire battle. Roosevelt was nominated for a Medal of Honor during his life, but wasn't awarded it until 2001, 82 years after his death. On National Medal of Honor Day we remember the more than 3500 souls who have received this award by going above and beyond the call of duty. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.

We're closing out anniversary week strong for you, dear listeners, with one of the most famous Americans who ever lived. Teddy motherfucking Roosevelt. A man who accomplished a ton in his life, especially considering how weak and fragile he was as a child. Not only did he do a bunch of badass, crazy shit, he also said some things that became famous quotes. Like, "speak slowly and have a big dick" or something like that. Tim covers it in the episode. Enjoy!
Of all the self-made millionaires of the Gilded Age (and there were many, such as John Rockefeller, son of a literal snake oil salesman who became the world's first billionaire), nobody can rival bootstrapping tenacity of Cassie Chadwick. She was a drifter from Canada who set herself up as wife of a rich doctor in Cleveland before moving on to a much bigger con involving the richest man in the world, Andrew Carnegie. With little education, no financial training, and at a time when women didn't even have the vote, Cassie Chadwick (Elizabeth Bigley) moved up the chain of bankers, getting each banker to loan her more than the one before telling each one a simple lie, she was none other than the illegitimate daughter of Carnegie and she was due to inherit his entire fortune. By the time the police caught up to her she had wrecked the banking system of Cleveland, sending one unfortunate banker to his grave and causing the collapse of a major bank. When the trial was held it was a media event that pushed the trial of Teddy Roosevelt off the front pages with a climactic moment when Andrew Carnegie appeared to face his accuser. Cassie was eventually convicted but not before taking others with her and leaving a legacy as the biggest con woman in the United States only to be eclipsed by Charles Ponzi.Today's guest is William Hazelgrove, author of the book Greed in the Gilded Age: The Brilliant Con of Cassie Chadwick. We explore the excesses of this age, and the very thin line between radical reinvention and outright deception.
ON AN OCTOBER NIGHT IN 1905, a horrifying scene was found on a wooden vessel off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. Onboard the Harry A. Berwind, one crewman lay dead, his blood streaming down the deck. The four officers all were gone-murdered, too, it would turn out, their bodies dumped into the sea. Only three sailors remained alive, one tied up, all telling different stories, all blaming each other. The three sailors were Black. The dead officers were white.So began a legal spectacle that would captivate much of the nation's press and fuel a sensational trial in Wilmington. It was in Wilmington, after all, that shocking racial violence had occurred not long before, and now the city remained in the clutches of white supremacists. Most observers could have predicted a quick verdict and a triple hanging . . . if not an even quicker lynching. Yet the legal drama would defy predictions, lasting seven years, reaching the Supreme Court, pulling in presidents Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft-then even being twisted into a fanciful, big-budget movie. In the end, so many participants-from jurors to lawyers to politicians-acted against type that justice had a fighting chance. SHIP OF BLOOD: Mutiny and Slaughter Aboard the Harry A. Berwind, and the Quest for Justice-Charles Oldham
Episode geeklist Joe Schmidt (corsairjoe) Now I've gone back to my usual format where I explore a single topic in games, books, films, and whatever else I can find. The Spanish-American War is similar to a lot of topics I've dived into--it's something I felt like I knew something about, but not too much. Also matching the pattern, it's been a subject I thought would be rather small and self-contained...only to find out it has larger implications and resonances to today's world. I swear, that just keeps on happening. Probably like a lot of people, when I think of the SAW I think of Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders, "Remember the Maine," San Juan Hill, and Cuba. Other topics might come to me if I concentrated on it, but not as readily: the Philippines, American imperialism, Yellow Journalism, Puerto Rico, and the US Navy. I think Cuba's much longer internal struggle for independence was largely unknown to me. In this Part 1 episode, I close by giving a quick rundown of the games in my geeklist on the subject, many of which I have played or will play by the time I record Part 2 to conclude the topic. However, the beginning of this podcast features a full interview with designer Joe Schmidt. Joe caught my attention when his little game Kettle Hill was about the Rough Riders' and Buffalo Soldiers' famous assault that was part of the Santiago campaign in the SAW. What's more, Joe won the Charles S Roberts award for the Amateur/Print-and-Play category. As you'll hear, Joe designed Kettle Hill as a PNP title during the coronavirus pandemic as a way of doing something for the hobby. I'm glad the hobby recognized him in return. Joe has a few games with a distinct aesthetic, both in small footprint and graphic design. He's also got several other projects in various stages of completion, such as his collaboration with other designers for the French Resistance game In The Shadows, which has already made the cut with GMT's P500 system. There's another title that will be of special interest to fans of the Levy & Campaign series that started with Nevsky. I didn't even realize it until after I switched off the recorder, but Joe was giving me a scoop for his new game in that series! Just like when Volko gave me a scoop for Nevsky back in episode 14.2! Wow, I'm a journalist! -Mark
“When I was young, I always had a mountain range over my shoulder,” he says. “I still come back looking for lost dignity.” We were very fortunate to have Gregory Hinton on for our latest episode of “What's Your Why!” He is an novelist, filmmaker, lecturer, curator, and playwright. As A Buffalo Bill Center of the West Resident Fellow, Hinton is the proud creator and producer of “Out West”, a national museum program series offering lectures, plays, films, and gallery exhibitions dedicated to shining a light on the history and culture of the LGBTQ+ community in the American West (follow this link for a video presentation of the program). It is the first regional LGBTQ western archive at the University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center in Laramie. Gregory's latest theatrical endeavor is “A Sissy in Wyoming”, based on the life of cowboy crossdresser Larry “Sissy” Goodman. Born in Wolf Point, Montana, Hinton resides in Los Angeles, dividing his thoughts and his time between the Golden State and the backroads of his native rural Rocky Mountain West. Follow him on Twitter! Thank yo so much for your words and time Gregory!! -‘He motors toward Shoshone Canyon and its prehistoric majesty, on what Teddy Roosevelt is said to have called the most beautiful drive in the world. Back home in Hollywood, he dreams about this place. He emerges from a tunnel, the expanse of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir before him. “Now you see,” he says, “why I come back.”' - John M. Glionna on Gregory Hinton-
In the early years of the twentieth century, the most famous Americans on the national stage were Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jane Addams: two presidents and a social worker. Each took a different path to prominence, yet the three progressives believed the United States must assume a more dynamic role in confronting the growing domestic and international problems of an exciting new age.Following the outset of World War I in 1914, the views of these three titans splintered as they could not agree on how America should respond to what soon proved to be an unprecedented global catastrophe. To discuss their approaches is today's guest Neil Lanctot, author of “THE APPROACHING STORM: Roosevelt, Wilson, Addams, and Their Clash Over America's Future by Neil Lanctot. We explore the story of three extraordinary leaders and how they debated, quarreled, and split over the role the United States should play in the world. By turns a colorful triptych of three American icons who changed history and the engrossing story of the roots of World War I, this episode explores a surprising and important story of how and why the United States emerged onto the world stage.
To understand how America became involved in World War I, we have to transport ourselves to a different America. Troops had never been sent overseas, progressivism was the primary political force and three presidents were battling to chart the nation's future. In Neil Lanctot's new book, "The Approaching Storm: Roosevelt, Wilson, Addams and their Clash Over America's Future," he explains how the life of Jane Addams intersected with that of Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson to bring the country's mindset from isolationist to interventionist. The decisions made during the run-up to American involvement in "The Great War," would pave world history for at least the next century. While many may be familiar with TR and Woodrow Wilson, Lanctot paints a vivid picture of Jane Addams, one of America's most prominent and accomplished peacemakers.Lanctot's website can be found at neillanctot.comMore information on his book can be found at https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/539530/the-approaching-storm-by-neil-lanctot/Support our show at patreon.com/axelbankhistory**A portion of every contribution is given to a charity for children's literacy**"Axelbank Reports History and Today" can be found on social media at twitter.com/axelbankhistoryinstagram.com/axelbankhistoryfacebook.com/axelbankhistory
Welcome to Spearfish, South Dakota! The city was founded in 1876 at the mouth of the Spearfish Canyon during the Black Hills Gold Rush. Originally called Queen City, the town supplied mining camps in the area. In 1887, the Thoen Stone was found in Black Hills. It is inscribed with the year 1834 and is purported to be the last will and testament of Ezra Kind. In 1933, Kind and six others crossed into the Black Hills to look for gold. At the time, laws and treaties forbid whites from entering the area. Kind and his party found gold, but were ultimately killed by Native Americans in the area. The stone is on display in a history museum in Deadwood, SD. In 1938, Joseph Meier brought the Luenen Passion Play to settle in the area and it became the Black Hills Passion Play. The show ran for 69 summer seasons and closed in 2008. One of the main draws to the area is the region's natural beauty. During a visit in 1935, architect Frank Lloyd Wright called the area "unique and unparalleled elsewhere in our country." Spearfish holds the world record for fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943 the temperature was -4 degrees. The Chinook winds picked up speed, and two minutes later the temperature was 45 degrees. After winds stopped several hours later, the temperature dropped back down to -4 degrees in 27 minutes. The sudden change caused windows to crack and windshields to instantly frost over. We hope you enjoy our trip to Spearfish!
Why is it so hard to let go? It is an enduring puzzle of U.S. foreign relations. It is hardly original to point out the sprawling collection of U.S. military installations and personnel abroad, but why is it so hard to reduce that military footprint, especially when so many presidents come into power wanting to do so? Today, I'd like to discuss U.S. President William McKinley's annexation of the Philippines in 1898 which sheds light on one important cause of "stickiness": a common psychological bias called the Endowment Effect. In exploring this concept, it enriches our understanding of why it can be so hard to let go. Aroop Mukharji is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Strategic Studies at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He received his PhD in Public Policy from Harvard University, where he studied American foreign policy and presidential decision-making in the William McKinley (1897-1901) and Teddy Roosevelt (1901-1909) administrations. He has hosted several podcasts, including Snack Break, the Belfer Center's foreign policy podcast at the Harvard Kennedy School (called Office Hours), and another podcast for the NGO Sense and Sustainability. He published a book on education and diplomacy in 2016 with Palgrave Macmillan, and has published foreign policy opinion pieces in War on the Rocks, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Yale Journal of International Affairs, and The New Republic.

Recreational cannabis stores have been operating legally in Colorado for more than eight years now. In that time, the industry has come to be dominated by chains backed by wealthy and well-connected businesspeople. Now, there is a growing movement to ensure a place in the cannabis industry for those left behind and harmed by the drug war -- especially people of color and from low-income areas. But Colorado Sun reporter Tatiana Flowers discovered that's much easier promised than accomplished. Here she talks with her colleague John Ingold about what she's learned in her reporting.

Charlie breaks down the ongoing coverage surrounding the war in Ukraine outlining exactly what we know, and what we don't know about what's actually happening in Ukraine. The key is understanding that this is first and foremost a war of propaganda. As the punditry class attempts to weigh in and make sense of this ongoing war, it's clear that there is no consensus reached. Some believe Putin is losing and is deeply frustrated by a lack of progress. Others believe that it's only a matter of time before Putin's forces take over Kyiv and the rest of Ukraine. Charlie separates fact from fiction, and explains why even as Ukraine is outmanned and outgunned, they are currently winning the propaganda war, rallying the world's great western powers around their fight. What does history teach us about such wars? Charlie remembers President Teddy Roosevelt's lesson to us from the Ruso-Japanese war in 1904 where he successfully brokered peace in another Russian conflict. Which begs the question: What should Biden be doing now to achieve an end to the current conflict?

It was 103 years ago today, on February 26, 1919, that the Grand Canyon in the new state of Arizona was recognized as a National Park. The Grand Canyon had for several years been protected by the U.S. government, and in 1908 President Teddy Roosevelt made it a National Monument. However, it was President Woodrow Wilson, upon signing Senate bill 390, that made the Grand Canyon an official American National Park. Today the Grand Canyon is one of the most recognizable landmarks in our state. Americans and foreigners alike come to visit this beautiful American landmark. What was happening yesterday,...

Matt Crawford speaks with author Neil Lanctot about his book, The Approaching Storm. World War I is often buried in the shadows of WWII and yet while the U.S was a brief participant in the war it would change the course of our history and shape the 20th century. The book looks at this time period through the eyes of Teddy Roosevelt, a former President running for a third term, Woodrow Wilson, a current President running for a 2nd term and Jane Addams a pacifist whose story has been dimmed a bit by history. A deep and rich story of what led to WWI but also the tangential events, concerns and issues facing the American people at the time. This is a book that will transport you back to the era and immerse you in the debate of war while stirring your mind of the parallels we face today.

A Weekend of mini-adventures and spontaneous experiences Friday night lights: learned how to create google maps guide. It was a quick and dirty experiment to convert several screenshots of addresses into saved spots that we could later drive to on our route to see the best Christmas lights. We even managed to explore a new brown sign (for more information on brown signs listen to episode 041 | Adventure Potential of Brown Signs) which was hosting the Festival of Lights. A donation based walk through Christmas lights experience…which also happened to be selling THE BEST caramel apple cider I have ever had in my life! The whole experience reminded me of when the kids were little. I'd have everyone get their PJ's on, I'd give them their Golden Tickets and we'd ride the Polar Express. We hadn't done this in a few years so it was a fun experience for my little monster and a bit of a nostalgic nod for my older 2. I will say I really appreciate the old school approach to Christmas lights, while it's fun to have the kits all synchronized to music, the ones that actually string individual lights from the flag pole to make the Christmas tree and then synchronize each strand received much more of our respect than the LED images and designs. Overall I'm such a sucker for light shows so I probably rated it a little higher on the Joy Audit. We think we may have even discovered where Clark Griswold lives. The siding and the roof were solid with light strands, it was interesting. The kids all had their piano recitals and since we were all dressed up, not in pajamas we grabbed a family picture. When we got home at 8 PM we were still feeling pretty festive so we made a batch of Christmas cookies and watched a Trans Siberian Orchestra Concert on YouTube. A spontaneous experience and it felt fun to stay up late and lounge together in our living room. We seldom sit down as a family to watch movies so this felt special. Sunday we slept in and woke up to snow. My oldest son carved a Cross Country Ski trail through the woods with the dog and our younger two played on the playground. When they came in we had hot cocoa and I decided to pull out some yarn and make a stocking hat ornament with them that I had found and thought it would be fun. While making the ornaments it started snowing again and I realized, while my kids played outside I stayed inside all day and I needed to get out of the cheap seats and into the arena. We ended the weekend with the entire family putting on our snow gear and cross country skiing on a path in the woods. I have been reading about the social and emotional benefits of fresh air so especially as the cold weather hits, we are trying to be more intentional about spending 2 hours outside everyday. I'm noticing that it's already having a noticeable impact. This leads me to the theme for this episode. Are you IN the arena? One of the pivotal moments for me in my parenting and adventure journey was listening to Brene Brown on a podcast. She shared her discovery of the Teddy Roosevelt The Man in the Arena quote and how it led to her writing Daring Greatly. A little backdrop on the quote. I have long been a fan of Teddy Roosevelt and this summer visited Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota which led to additional learning and curiosity. The Man in the Arena quote is from a speech that Teddy Roosevelt gave in Paris in 1910 called Citizenship in a Republic. Roosevelt was addressing the roles of citizenship and called out the voices of cynicism dissuades many from doing great things (Source: https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/63389/roosevelts-man-arena among others) The quote states: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives val-e-antly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." I remember hearing this recited on the podcast as I drove home from work one day. I was living life on drift and thought “oh crap, I'm not in the arena.” The truth was not many in my circle, my network had the same parenting adventure desires that I had. Yet I listened to their worries, their concerns and need for safety and stability kept me in the cheap seats. The cheap seats of the dreamers and the talkers. The doers of deeds are in the arena getting dirty. As I traversed down the trail of being a parent who is willing to adventure and take risks it often felt lonely, that the voices of the critics were loud. When I set out on this podcast I had an intention to find others who were ahead of me on this trail. Who were already in the arena or were willing to join me in the arena and share triumphs or failures while daring greatly. I have participated in numerous parenting groups, I've joined masterminds and signed up for online courses, and while those were great in building a more diverse set of experiences and connections, by and large the adventure parenting arena still feels pretty lonely with quite a few eager but timid souls sitting in the seats waiting and watching. There is a chapter in my upcoming book about building and creating an adventure tribe or a circle of trusted adventure advisors which was inspired by Pat Flynn and reinforced by John Lee Doumas if you are familiar with any of their work. Pat suggests when he was launching his business that he needed a different trusted circle of advisors that were not merely friends, but rather skilled advisors he trusted much like his financial advisor, legal counsel who were vested in his personal and professional goals. People who could test him still came from a caring place and had his best interests in mind. Who could connect with him in the pits when things weren't going well and share honest feedback not just try to make him feel good, but actually improve. The advice I took from John Lee Doumas was to find a mentor who is one year ahead of where you want to be and invest in them, learn from them, do whatever you can to get access to their content. Surround yourself with people who have more experience than you. I think it was Shane Sams who said, your goal is to be the dumbest person in the room and just soak up and learn from others, you want to be in the room where it happens (feel free to break out in Hamilton song if you haven't already) When I encounter a problem is A) Find a solution B) Create a solution C) Let the problem go. We have some pretty Brave and Bold adventure family goals that we are embarking on in 2022 that I am not willing to let go of. I have yet to find a solution after several years of searching so I think that leads to answer B) Create a Solution. I have been searching for a community where I can learn from others on this adventure journey, who are in the arena. Who don't merely talk about their goals and dreams but get marred with dust and blood taking action. They spend their time and energy on a worthy cause trying to design a life they want to live. I have found a few families who do this well and I want to bring them to the community, to do deep dives and masterminds so we can interact and bring their experiences and lessons learned to the arena. Where we don't merely have to sit in the cheap seats. A reference to my teaching in-service days, I'm not interested in offering “a sit n' get” experience, but rather get in the arena. Try different suits of armor on, get dirty, fall down, go forward with great enthusiasm knowing that there are 20+ other adventurous parents in the arena with you. I want to bring you the members of my trusted advisor circle who help me through mindset, and money, setting expectations, working through self-doubt and fear; while also helping you build yours in the process. I want the arena to not only inspire and support you but also keep you accountable. I have also heard from my everyday adventure challenge cohorts, the simplicity is great AND Several of them have big bold ideas that need more depth, more planning support, more insights and if they had someone to help them predict and navigate the Black Swan events they would gladly sign up for this experience. Some examples of “in the Arena” experiences that I know people in the Ordinary Sherpa community are working towards: Take a 6 week vacation in the summer Take a slow travel road trip in an RV around North America Hike the patagonia trail Take a mini-retirement or gap year Take a luxury trip using only travel rewards Rent out their house and be location independent Write a book Launch a blog/podcast brand Live on a sailboat Start a homestead Attain dual-citizenship All of these are worthwhile lifestyle experiences that can be achieved within the next 6-12 months. I will admit while none of the adventure goals above are mine. But we do have a bold family adventure goal for 2022. The kind that has me both excited and scared at the same time. Having a tribe of advisors and curious supporters willing to embark on a Bold and Brave in 2022 feels good. SO here is the official announcement of the In the Arena membership that will launch in January 2022. I am keeping it a closed group with about 20-30 people max in it and I know many don't listen to these podcasts the week they come out so I wanted to give you the time to think about it and consider applying. If you are intrigued and simply want to be on the waitlist or know more details head over to ordinarysherpa.com/arena All that does is put your name on maybe/want more information list, when you sign up you will receive more information and a link to an application. I will be scheduling a call with every applicant and treating this experience like an adventure lifestyle mastermind to help you achieve your lifestyle and adventure family goals in 2022. I am kind of excited about the arena, but I also want to be really clear that it's not just about the service offering. THe arean can exist wherever you want it to exist and sometimes it really is the simple things like I experienced this weekend. SItting in the house watching my kids play outside. Outside and play are critical to every human being, not just kids. I want you to notice, where are you sitting in the cheap seats and when are you in the arena getting dirty. Because regardless if the result is victory or failure, at least you are taking a step towards action. Key Takeaways Brown Signs are not merely locations for 3-seasons, explore what simple opportunities might exist at nearby brown signs regardless of the temperatures outside. Life is a sequence of unpredictable events that can either become moments that pass us by or experiences to take hold of. Are you more likely to sit in the cheap seats watching others enjoy the adventure or are you willing to get in the arena and do the thing? What feels bold and brave for you in 2022? Was your adventure goal listed? There are many in the Ordinary Sherpa community embarking on new and uncomfortable adventures. Finding an adventure advisor circle or tribe who can inspire and challenge you to work towards your adventure family goals are hard to find. Friends and family might not be the right members for those seats. Who is one-year ahead of you on the journey. There is no reason to start from scratch or create something new. Identifying those you admire or who you think are living the lifestyle you want to live is step one, building a relationship with them is step two. Embarking on a bold and brave adventure goal can feel lonely and include many simultaneous feelings.
