Episode 9: Instagram: October 30, 2019 at 01:12PM


via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/B4QBM7RJxdn/ Episode: Family Trees
This came up in my Facebook memories, dated about six months before I started the podcast. It ended up as a story in the episode Family Trees, which I link below, but it is worth copying here for posterity—and because it’s a fine tale out of American history, and a good one about a politician for once. We can all stand that, right?

Original post:

This still makes me laugh. My family made minor Congressional history for being firm in our beliefs (read: stubborn) and strong in our convictions (read: opinionated). I give you The Pettigrew Indictment. “In 1917, while being interviewed by a journalist from the Argus Leader, Pettigrew offered his opinion that the First World War was a capitalist scheme intended to further enrich the wealthy, and he urged young men to evade the draft.” They tried to charge him with espionage, he countered with his friend Clarence Darrow (yes, that Clarence Darrow, he of the Scopes Trial) and was acquitted.
Best part: he then framed the original indictment for display in his home office…right next to the Declaration of Independence.
It’s still there in the Pettigrew Home Museum.

via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/B3iGcL6Jz-N/ Squinty Slouncypants is proud of her podcast, and getting her autumn on! 🍂 The one I chose is this one in asphalt: https://bit.ly/2B7Wqgk 🧁There’s something really special about wearing my own artwork. In April of 2017, I put on @cyndilauper’s “She’s So Unusual” and played that beloved album straight through while sketching in my bullet journal. When it finished, I had the logo for my podcast. And today, I wore it proudly to go buy apples for baking and to pet farm animals owned by proud FFA kids. Cane not pictured. 🙂 I limped out of the car really quickly to get this picture at the pretty front office after we finished.

via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/B3alGClBc_y/ More Watching the Detectives coming! Note the Peers playlist; the substitute for their campus in the playlist’s picture is Sweet Briar College (the subject of episode 39: Sweet).
@madisenkuhn I am working on my novel! Printed out chunks and am at the coffee shop after physical therapy. Sometimes the words and characters look different in shape on paper. It’s always been that way for me. As I said, I’ll email you with details, so we can talk about it, but I’ve also read from it in episodes past: look for the two episodes called “Watching the Detectives” and listen to them in order.

Episode 14: Watching the Detectives

Episode 28: Watching the Detectives Part 2

Going to read from the new parts after I publish the Halloween episodes. Thanks for inspiring me to kick myself back into writing gear. (I have your journal and stickers, love!) #amwriting #watchingthedetectives #books #amreading #bookstagram #bookpodcast #bookpodcaster #bookpodcasts #beyourownheroine #trypod #podcast #podcasts #theremightbecupcakes #horror #podernfamily #ladypodsquad #madisenkuhn #readersofinstagram #carlahufstedler #amediting

Madisen Kuhn and I at her poetry reading from her newest book, Almost Home. It’s splendiferous. It made me tear up. Buy it. Write in the margins about your own feelings. Start writing your own journey.
