With polls showing a neck-and-neck race for governor in Virginia, anti-gun Democrats are pulling out all the stops to depress turnout among Republicans and conservatives, including running ads portraying GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin as soft in his support for the Second Amendment.

As a virtuoso bassist, versatile composer, and acclaimed bandleader, Marc Johnson has been a major innovator on the jazz scene for the past two decades. Born in Nebraska in 1953, Johnson took up bass at the age of 16, having already studied piano and cello. While completing his formal education in the celebrated music program at the University of North Texas, at age19, Johnson began performing professionally with the Fort Worth Symphony. In 1977, he was on the road with the Woody Herman Band. A stop with Herman in New York City marked a major turning point for Johnson, where he was invited to sit in with Bill Evans at the Village Vanguard. In 1978, he joined Evans' trio, remaining with him until the pianist's death two years later. Johnson appears on numerous albums recorded with Evans, including the Grammy-winning We Will Meet Again and released in 1997, a six-CD box set of live recordings, Turn Out the Stars, weaving his distinctively warm tones and melodic lines into the complex harmonies of the Trio. Over the past 20 years, Johnson has performed on more than 100 albums. Many have been with pianists, including Eliane Elias, Lyle Mays, and Enrico Pieranunzi, although Johnson has also recorded with saxophonists Stan Getz, Joe Lovano, and Michael Brecker, drummers Peter Erskine and Paul Motian, and Jack DeJohnette, vibist Gary Burton, and bandoneon master Dino Saluzzi. And many of his most notable recordings have been with guitarists. In addition to his long membership in guitarist John Abercrombie's trio, Johnson formed two guitar-oriented bands that rose to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Overpass, recorded in January and February 2018 at Nacena Studios, in São Paulo, was produced by Marc Johnson and Eliane Elias. In this episode, Marc shares his background, education, and musical journey.

Supporters of Governor Gavin Newsom are working furiously to turn out the “No” vote and keep him in office. They've been canvassing the state in the lead-up to election day. Reporter: Katie Orr, KQED With the final day to vote in the gubernatorial recall election just five days away, tensions are flaring on the campaign trail.

We examine the impact of the Texas abortion law on California, which has long protected abortion rights. We recall the passage of the 1967 Beilenson Therapeutic Abortion Act, which liberalized California abortion laws through the unlikely cooperation of a young Democratic state senator and the conservative governor, Ronald Reagan. We look at the California recall campaign and conclude the abortion furor might be good news for Gov. Gavin Newsom.Nancy Boyarsky is the producer-director of Inside Golden State Politics
Renaissance man Ishmael Reed reflects on his prolific career. Also, crime maestro Megan Abbott gets to the "pointe" about her novel, "The Turnout," which is set in the competitive world of ballet. And author/artist Kristen Radtke on the deep impacts of loneliness in America.
This week, I'm honored to welcome back my favorite crime writer working today. Novelist Megan Abbott is the Edgar-winning author of such acclaimed, rich works as Give Me Your Hand, You Will Know Me, The Fever, Dare Me, Queenpin, and more. Her newest title The Turnout was released on August 3rd and became not only a Today Show "Read with Jenna" book pick but also a New York Times bestseller as well.An impressive film buff who is as delightful as she is intelligent, I loved hearing Megan's fresh perspective on Martin Scorsese movies at the start of our 2021 season and was so thrilled to have her back to talk about the incredible Judy Holliday for this podcast today. Essentially discussing all of her movies, we focused mainly on The Marrying Kind, It Should Happen to You, Phffft, and The Solid Gold Cadillac. In the process, we take a look at what Holliday brought to these films, how with a 172 IQ, she was so much more than the stereotypical "dumb blonde" synonymous with her Oscar-winning performance in Born Yesterday, and also considered how she might have been gray-listed after cleverly refusing to name names during a HUAC hearing in 1950.Clocking in at under an hour, this celebratory yet thorough chat is as quickly paced as one of Holliday's deliciously brisk films. And the result is an episode that classic movie fans, in particular, will be sure to love!Theme Music: Solo Acoustic Guitar by Jason Shaw, Free Music ArchiveOriginally Posted on Patreon on 8/31/21 here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/55580653
In today's Books with Hooks segment, Carly and CeCe discuss focusing on trauma and conflict rather than the perfect life that came before; not taking up too much space for a set up in a query letter; starting with the inciting incident; the problem with objectivity in omniscient POV; how curiosity comes from active emotion; writing well on a line level; pitching plot rather than feelings; and the golden rule of dialogue. After which, Bianca chats with Megan Abbott, author of The Turnout, about the themes writers return to; the research that goes into a novel; how you don't need to just write what you know, but what you're curious about; the struggle to write authentic movement and gestures as your characters make their way through the world; making the reader do the heavy-lifting; and writing an unreliable narrator.
Kristen and Layne chat with Megan Abbott about her deliciously dark (and New York Times bestselling!) ballet thriller THE TURNOUT, the connection between perfectionism and womanhood, and how to write authentic conflict between female characters while avoiding catfight stereotypes.

Malibu Rising follows four famous siblings over one day in August 1983, the day of their annual party, which is legendary. All the “right” people are there. By the end of the night their lives will be changed, secrets will be revealed -- and oh, the house where the party is taking place will be burned down. The Rivas are connected to fame. Two are beloved surfers, one is a renowned photographer, and all four of them are children of the legendary singer, Mick Riva, who is estranged from his children.

Chandler Baker, the New York Times bestselling author of the Whisper Network, talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her newest novel, The Husbands. The Husbands follows Nora Spangler, an attorney with more than her career on her plate. She's up for partnership at her law firm, but at home she's juggling everything for the house and kids. Her husband works hard at the office, but on the home front his task list is a lot lighter, and he is a lot more relaxed. When they plan a move to a new neighborhood, Nora finds the women there less challenged by their household tasks; their husbands are helping out a lot more around the house. What's happening there? Chandler and Carol talk about “the second shift” and what it means for women, especially those with young children -- as well as the nod this book has to The Stepford Wives. Chandler talks about the book that her friends were reading and discussing that inspired the story. Chandler also talks about writing the screenplay. They discuss the characters and relate their choices to their own lives, all while doing their best not to give anything away.

Megan Abbott joins Carol Fitzgerald to talk about her latest thriller, The Turnout, which is the 10th book in her award-winning career. Set against the world of ballet, The Turnout follows Dara and Marie Durant, two sisters who trained in ballet since they were children. Their parents ran the prestigious Durant School of Dance. After their sudden death, the girls take over running the dance school together, teaming up for the parts of teaching that suit them best. Working with them is Charlie, a young man who was a ballet student but was injured early in his career. Charlie was like a son to the family and he is now married to Dara, the older sister. At the height of one of the most important events of the year, the annual performance of "The Nutcracker," a suspicious accident occurs that throws this troika and the entire studio into a tailspin. Their conversation is fast-paced as they talk plot, characters, and what a "turnout” is, as well as how tension is built in Megan's writing. They each have fond memories of their childhood moments in dance studios, where neither was destined to star. They also talk about Megan's film work, both on HBO's “The Deuce” and her role as the creator, Executive Producer and showrunner of the adaptation of her book, Dare Me. She will be adapting The Turnout for film as well, and they talk about the differences between writing for a book and writing for the screen.

Last month, hardliner Ebrahim Raisi was elected as Iran's new president with 62 percent of the vote. But turnout was at a historic low: less than half of eligible voters took part in the election. Our reporters James André, Mayssa Awad and Roméo Langlois spoke to Iranians in the days following the vote to try to understand why so few of them chose to cast a ballot.
Is Marine Le Pen's 'softening' of the hard-right National Rally the right strategy to win the presidency? The American who pioneered quinoa farming in France. How a tragic blaze pushed Napoleon to launch the Paris fire brigade. Turnout was massively low in both rounds of last month's regional elections, even amongst supporters of the hard-right National Rally, which had been predicted to win at least one region. Only thirty percent of RN voters showed up. When Marine Le Pen took the National Front from her father in 2011, she renamed it and rebranded it as a less radical party to try to broaden the support base. But it's a risky game. Political scientist Jean-Yves Camus (@jeanyvescamus1), a specialist of the hard right, says Le Pen's strategy could be backfiring, alienating some of the party's followers. (Listen @0'00'') Quinoa, a seed that is eaten like a grain, has been grown in the Andean region of South America for hundreds of years. The rest of the world "discovered" quinoa in the early 2000s, and global demand went through the roof, putting a strain on producers in Peru and Bolivia. Farmers around the world started thinking about how they could grow quinoa, and over the past decade France has developed a local production, becoming Europe's largest producer. The bulk is grown in the Anjou, or Maine-et-Loire region in the west of the country, thanks to one man from Tennessee, Jason Abbott.(Listen @13'10'') The 8,500 firefighers in Paris' fire brigade, the sapeurs pompiers, are professional soldiers, part of military corps put in place by Napoleon after a tragic fire on 1 July 1810.
