Publishing legend, art historian, and author, Charles Scribner III, spoke with me about growing up surrounded by publishing, Hemingway's Three Rules to Life, and his memoir/family history SCRIBNERS: FIVE GENERATIONS IN PUBLISHING. Charles Scribner III is an art historian, author, editor, and lecturer, who received his BA, MFA, and PhD from Princeton University in art and archaeology. He worked in publishing for nearly thirty years and is a prominent authority on Caravaggio, Bernini, Rubens, and other artists. He has written biographies on Rubens and Bernini; articles for Vanity Fair, Art & Antiques, among other publications; and has lectured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery, the Smithsonian, Christie's, and various universities. His forthcoming family history, Scribners: Five Generations in Publishing, is about the inside story of 5 generations – over 150 years – at the legendary publishing house of Charles Scribner's Sons. “The author, the fifth of the Charleses to work at that house of celebrated authors, provides … an inside view – ‘between the covers' of illustrious and notorious books – of the family members, editors, and authors of this colorful literary history.” Kirkus Reviews called it "A charming memoir of a life in books," and Publishers Weekly called it “... a lively and refreshing must-read for those interested in the history of book publishing.” Charles remained at Scribners through three changes in ownership (Macmillan, Maxwell, and Viacom), overseeing the publication of its literary classics. He was also a commentator for TV documentaries on Edith Wharton (BBC/PBS), Fitzgerald and Hemingway (A&E Biography).

For this episode I was lucky enough to speak with a historian and writer I have long admired, Dr. Catherine McNeur. Catherine's first book, Taming Manhattan: Environmental Battles in the Antebellum City, first came out in 2014, and it is one of my favorite environmental histories. So I was more than a little excited to learn about her new book out this year, Mischievous Creatures: The Forgotten Sisters Who Transformed Early American Science. I couldn't pass up the chance to talk with Catherine about how the book emerged out of a different book project, the techniques she uses for bringing place so vividly to the page, and the writing process that results in prose that is such a pleasure to read. Plus, this book has one of the best stories of serendipitous archival discovery I have ever heard.

#1 New York Times bestselling author, Jim Butcher, spoke with me about how he outlined a hit 20-novel series (years before he had an agent), why all steampunks wear goggles, and the second book in his Cinder Spires series, THE OLYMPIAN AFFAIR.

The long-anticipated second novel in his Cinder Spires series is The Olympian Affair, described by the author as “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meets Sherlock meets Hornblower,” in a series “... about noble families, magic-wielding warriors, and airship battles.” Library Journal called it “... an exciting epic fantasy, set in the sky and filled with airships, magic, and the connections of blood and found family." And New York Times bestselling author David Weber said of the book, “It's steampunk meets magic with a dose of sci-fi for seasoning.” [Discover The Writer Files Extra: Get 'The Writer Files' Podcast Delivered Straight to Your Inbox at writerfiles.fm] [If you're a fan of The Writer Files, please click FOLLOW to automatically see new interviews.

While organized crime and drug cartels are traditionally male-dominated, there have been instances of women taking on significant roles within Mexican cartels. These women, often referred to as "narco women" or "queenpins," have gained attention for their involvement in criminal activities. Some have risen to prominence due to family connections or their own strategic and ruthless behavior.One notable example is Enedina Arellano Félix, who became a key figure in the Tijuana Cartel after the arrest of her brothers. Another prominent figure is Sandra Ávila Beltrán, known as the "Queen of the Pacific," who was involved in drug trafficking and money laundering.These women may engage in various roles within the cartels, including overseeing drug trafficking operations, managing finances, and making strategic decisions. However, it's essential to note that such cases are exceptions, and the majority of high-ranking positions in Mexican cartels are still held by men.In addition to figures like Enedina Arellano Félix and Sandra Ávila Beltrán, other women have played significant roles in Mexican cartels. Some of them are known for their cunning and ability to navigate the dangerous and violent world of drug trafficking. While their involvement in criminal activities is often condemned, it also underscores the complex and multifaceted nature of organized crime in Mexico.One aspect of the female involvement in cartels is the strategic use of gender dynamics. Some women have exploited societal expectations and stereotypes to operate discreetly, as law enforcement agencies and rival cartels may be less likely to suspect or scrutinize women in certain roles. This ability to fly under the radar has contributed to the success of some female leaders in the criminal underworld.The rise of female bosses in Mexican cartels has also led to shifts in power dynamics and internal structures. In some cases, women have taken over leadership roles after the arrest or elimination of male counterparts. This adaptability and resilience highlight the fluid nature of cartel operations, where individuals, regardless of gender, vie for power and control.In this episode we hear from author Deborah Bonello who has extensively covered females in the narco game who have leadership roles. to contact me:firstname.lastname@example.org:'Narcas' author Deborah Bonello on Latin American drug cartels - Los Angeles Times (latimes.com)This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5003294/advertisement

Planet Buzz's Scorpio panel episode, “Saturn 0° Pisces Direct” featuring special guest, Donna Young, President of Kepler College, inspiring an expansive conversation stretching across the border to Donna's nation of Canada. “Saturn initially entered Pisces last 7 March 2023. Quickly moving through degrees to mid-June when Saturn stationed (apparent) retrograde at 7°13' Pisces. Since then, Saturn's entire retrograde motion has remained in Pisces. Almost resting at 0° for three weeks since 12 October to 3 November when Saturn finally moves direct,” said Sue Minahan, founder, and host of the weekly show. "However, Saturn's remains at a snail's pace through most of November until the 28th when finally, the tempo gradually picks up. The “shadow path”, Saturn's third path crossing the degrees, completes on 7 February 2024. Saturn in Pisces at its highest represents Spiritual discipline, using our responsibility to focus on higher law, which has served to guide humanity in one form or another throughout the millennia's. Compassion for self, for others, for the ocean, for wildlife, for the weary and weak. At its best dissolving barriers and reckoning new authorities.” Join Planet Buzz with Sue Rose Minahan of Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii, founder of Talk Cosmos and Astrologer/Consultant, long-standing panel member, Dr. Laura Tadd of Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, and honored guest Donna Young of Rural Alberta, Canada.

Kouri Richins' book on how to deal with grief isn't the only thing she's written. There's a six-page handwritten letter that's sparking debate, "the walk the dog letter." Prosecutors say that in the letter, Richins is teaching people how to lie about what happened the night her husband died. Her defense team says the letter was privileged information and wants the prosecutors to be sanctioned. It's called the "walk the dog letter," since that phrase is written in big letters on the top. In it, Richins makes the claim that her husband Eric was addicted to drugs, that he would make frequent trips to Mexico to get pills, and that his death was an accidental overdose. The letter was written to Richins' mother, and it reportedly tells her to instruct Richins' brother to make the connection to Mexico and drugs when he talks about the case. The question the court has to answer is, does a defendant attempting to help coach someone on what they should say on the witness stand, rise to the level of witness tampering? Prosecutors say it does rise to the level of witness tampering because there is no connection between Kouri Richins' brother and drugs from Mexico. The prosecution believes, again, that Richins is instructing people to lie. That is why the prosecution is asking the judge to disallow contact between Richins and her mother.

Her debut novel is Jonathan Abernathy You Are Kind, described by The New York Times as a story about, “... debt-laden citizens [who] are recruited to ‘audit' others' dreams — all in the name of productivity.” In a starred review Booklist said of the book, “… a superlative state-of-the-nation novel like no other. Full of astoundingly resonant and eminently quotable points about labor, capital, and depression, this wondrous literary creation brilliantly captures the excessive demands of contemporary work.” Molly has worked in the editorial departments of McSweeney's, The Believer, NOON, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and helped launch a horror imprint at Tor. Her work has appeared in The Paris Review, LitHub, and others.
