  • Pell Mellers, Race and Memory in a Carolina Pocosin, Paul Johnson

    in Books

    A Genealogical Quest in the Triracial South


    What began as genealogical research into the author's ancestry soon grew into a fascinating tale with lessons for us all. Among his ancestors, Johnson uncovered: unpunished murderers, infidelities that produced stronger families than formal marriages, entire units of North Carolinians who fought and died to preserve the Union in the Civil War. The tale holds enough plot twists for a half-dozen novels.


    But most of all, it reveals in a personal way what molecular anthropologists have been trying to explain all along. The fact is that we are all of multiple ancestries. Inhabitants of the New World are a genetic mix of three great populations, Native Americans, European colonists, and African slaves. Nowhere is this more vivid than in Pell Mellers, the story of one man's search for his tangled roots.
    "In Paul Johnson's engaging journey into his roots in Bertie County, North Carolina, he discovers an intriguing family of pocosin dwellers who personify the South's multiracial heritage and its political minorities, including Unionists and the original Buffalo Soldiers. Pell Mellers is a solid contribution to the history of the "other South" that complements the well-traveled mainstream, illustrating our rich and textured past." -- Lindley S. Butler, author of Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast..Read full description of episode here!

    Interview for Trashy Chic a Bertie Mallowan Mystery

    in Books

    Reporter Bertie Mallowan has drifted away from hard news stories and into the shallows of "fluff" features, the kind you find buried in the back of the newspaper. Writing about preschool fashion shows and the latest in designer garbage bags bores her so she amuses herself by inventing naughty passwords for her computer and pushing the envelope when it comes to creative lying to management types.
    When she interviews greedy, nasty Robert Bellingham, the king of must-have luxury items for the rich of Southern California - like monogrammed airbags for "The Crash with Panache" and mink coats pre-streaked with red paint to foil PETA kamikazes. Over the years, his products have become de rigueur for the class that has two of everything and is seeking the one and only of something else. He's made a lot of money and a lot of enemies.

    Two days after Bertie's interview, Bellingham's body is found on the floor of the foyer in the family mansion; someone has aerated his skull with the stereotypical blunt object. Thanks to her interview, Bertie has inside information about the life and times of a rich and powerful murder victim and is thrust into a big story again.
    Bertie is convinced that the family's bizarre emotional ticks make them all uniquely capable of committing murder. A second murder and an attack on Bertie herself brings her face-to-face with the kind of danger she's only ever written about, never experienced first-hand.

    Back Channel,The Kennedy Years & Pianist Cristian Monti

    in Politics

    Back Channel is the first book of a remarkable memoir of a Special Assistant to President John F. Kennedy.
    Known familiarly as Bertie Mac he reported directly to the President and his office was in the West Wing of the White House. Prior to achieving that position, he had been betrayed by his own government - the United States - and handed over to the Soviets.
    He was tortured in the Lubyanka Prison in Moscow before being covertly rescued by two high ranking Soviet Generals (at great risk to themselves) who wanted to convey information directly to the White House to try to avert a nuclear confrontation they believed to be imminent. They believed that he would be a uniquely reliable conduit of information between the U.S. and the Soviet Union as he deeply mistrusted both governments and therefore had absolutely no motivation to "color" any information he might transmit.
    Bertie Mac coined the term "Back Channel" and served as a direct communication link between the White House and the Kremlin during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
    Bertie Mac is a patriot, a soldier, a spy and an assassin. He served in all four roles during his time under President Kennedy, who became his friend and confidant.You will see the Soviet Union, the White House, Camelot, Vietnam and the conspirators behind the assassination of the President in a very new light and watch history as it was being made. Join us as we look into the Kennedy Years of Camelot, the Assasination and the aftermath. Due to our guests safety we cannot devulge his true name or show his face.
    Call in to speak with Bertie at 213-769-0952 or visit via the chatroom. 9PM EST, 8PM CST, 6PM PST View Bertie's web-site: http://www.bertiemac.com/

    Ghost Hunting Texas Style

    in Lifestyle

    Bertie has been intrigued with the paranormal from a very early age. Originally from Houston, Texas she has made her home in Austin. Bertie is a project manager for a global software company, she owns a web design business, and makes room for investigations after work. She's had several personal experiences with the paranormal and supports the theory spirits do exist, and wants to collect evidence proving this theory. "My goal is to help people by validating their story. For one, I believe everyone's story. I believe they did have an experience(s) if they believe they did. Sometimes, finding someone who can relate to your story is half the battle. You get some peace of mind knowing you're not crazy." In her quest to discover "how" spirits may exist she set out to find other individuals with the same idealogy, and as a result founded the Ghost Hunters of Texas. www.ghosthuntersoftexas.com
