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.

Repost from @mikebockoven using @RepostRegramApp – Three years ago today, my first novel was released.

A quick story behind this photo – it was taken at the Omaha Barnes and Noble the day my book was released. I had a special trip planned for the day including seeing my book in a store and Godzilla movies at the Omaha Draft House with my buddy Chad. We get to the book store and FantasticLand isn’t on the shelves.

Not being a natural extrovert I didn’t want to go up to the staff, push my glasses up onto my nose and say “can you put my book out, please?” So Chad, being a good friend, went and asked for me. They brought it out, I got my photo and he captured the moment.

This is a long winded way of saying I’m not overly comfortable promoting myself. Part of it is imposter syndrome, part of it is my natural inclination to keep my head down. But that day, Chad did the hard work for me and in the three years since, many, many of you have joined in. Since the book has come out, it’s received over 2,300 ratings on Goodreads, sold over 15,000 copies, gotten a paperback run, been optioned for film rights and brought me into the orbit of some truly awesome people.
I can’t say “thank you” enough to every single person who has read the book, recommended it, rated it (even the bad ones, seriously), and reached out to tell me about it. I’ve even gotten fan fiction, fan art and wild speculation about the book on social media. I can honestly say my life, the last three years, has been some of the best of times because of all of you.
I’m still not really great at promotion, so I’ll say “thank you” again and get back to writing. Hopefully there’s more to come.
