Katherine Johnson was incredible. Not just because of the barriers in our modern society that she broke through but because she was just an incredible human being. A human computer cheat code that LOVED what she did. Her accolades are well documented, from graduating high school at 15, college at 18, being the strings behind the Apollo 11 mission, having a movie - "Hidden Figures" - made about her, the Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, et-freakin-cetera! Amazing! I had a great time reading this and managed my curses as to not muddy up this story.

Today we dive into the, "Blackkklansman" by Ron Stallworth. The infamous story now turned major motion picture of a Colorado Springs Afircan-American cop who befriends David Duke. The former Grand Wizard of the KKK. I read Chapter 4, which details how they actually cross paths. The story as a whole is very bizarre and at time unreal. To say that Ron really crossed over into boundaries that he necer thought he would or could for that matter is an understatement. With a little help from his colleagues, he gets to meet, his new friend, David Duke.

Today, we read from, "the Founding Fathers Reconsidered", by R.B. Bernstein. The United States constitution is a living document that continues to be molded by modern day framers. The epilogue that I read from summates the reasoning why we have amendments, why the Bill of Rights has been a ruling body of work for our country. It has been quite the election year, and as wild as it seems I am optimistic. I love this country so much. I have optimism in us, I think that emotionally we have resolve and can figure out how to actually get back to "work" on US and stop instituting divisive rhetoric that is tearing down the civil structure that we have worked so hard to get a few steps ahead.  This podcast hit very close due to the temperature of the nation presently. I wish you all well and hope that we can continue to progress! Be well and enjoy.

Sit back, listen on your drive to work, take your shower, whatever the hell it is you find yourself doing - And ENJOY a new episode of Short...Story...Bingo!

Today we read a story from James Baldwin. As a provocative thinker, essayist, and cultural icon, Mr. Baldwin did not mince words during the civil rights movement of the Sixties in the USA. The Library of America thankfully compiled some of his most important pieces of writing to bring today's story for us, "The Discovery of What It Means to be an American".  James Baldwin lived in France for much of his adult life where he found his voice and writing style to give to the world. One of my biggest takeaways was the, "social paranoia" that we experience here in America when it comes to our status. Keeping up with the Jones' some may say. The interaction described between the waiter and the businessman and the respect that they both have for each other really resonated. I know more episodes are to come from this collections of essays. I was proud to read from this and hope you feel the same.

Sit back, listen on your drive to work, take your shower, whatever the hell it is you find yourself doing - And ENJOY a new episode of Short...Story...Bingo!
