Slaves in the Family with Edward Ball
If you knew that you were a descendant of a slave- owner, would you tell anyone?
If you had an opportunity to apologize to descendants of those enslaved by your family, would you?
Edward Ball is a writer of narrative nonfiction and the author of five books, including The Inventor and the Tycoon (Doubleday, 2013), about the birth of moving pictures. The book tells the story of Edward Muybridge, the pioneering 19-century photographer (and admitted murderer), and Leland Stanford, the Western railroad baron, whose partnership, in California during the 1870s, gave rise to the visual media.
Edward Ball’s first book, Slaves in the Family (1998), told the story of his family’s history as slave-owners in South Carolina, and of the families they once enslaved. Slaves in the Family won the National Book Award for nonfiction, was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into five languages, and was featured on Oprah.
Edward Ball was born in Savannah, raised in Louisiana and South Carolina, and graduated from Brown University in 1982. He worked for ten years as freelance journalist in New York, writing about art and film, and becoming a columnist for The Village Voice.
His other books, all nonfiction, include The Sweet Hell Inside (2001), the story of an African-American family that rose from the ashes of the Civil War to build lives in music and in art during the Jazz Age; Peninsula of Lies (2004), the story of English writer Gordon Hall, who underwent one of the first sex reassignments—in the South during the 1960s—creating an outrage; and The Genetic Strand, about the process of using DNA to investigate family history.
Edward Ball lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.

Last week's episode left some of our listeners craving more of this interesting topic, and Winston and CK both had more in their respective tanks as well, so the only logical conclusion was to bring Mr. Smith back for more scaleless talk !
If you didn't catch the first episode, please do so before listening to this one to maximize your enjoyment. Winston brings the eye of an evolutionary biologist to the table with respect to what the Scaleless Head Ball Pythons have going on inside them.
Was Edward Snowden Justified? Two teams faced off on the motion "Snowden was justified" in his release of highly classified national security documents. The team that sways the most people by the end of the debate is declared the winner. AGAINST THE MOTION Andrew C. McCarthy, a contributing editor at National Review and a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, is a former top federal prosecutor. A former chief assistant U.S. attorney, he is best known for leading the prosecution against Omar Abdel Rahman and 11 others for waging a terrorist war against the U.S., including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. Ambassador R. James Woolsey, a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, chairs the board of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and is a venture partner with Lux Capital Management. Previously, he served in the U.S. government on five different occasions, where he held presidential appointments in two Republican and two Democratic administrations. FOR THE MOTION Daniel Ellsberg is a former U.S. military analyst who, in 1971, leaked the Pentagon Papers, which revealed how the U.S. public had been misled about the Vietnam War. After serving in the Marine Corps, he became in 1959 a strategic analyst at the RAND Corporation and consultant to the White House and Defense Department, which he joined before transferring to the State Department to serve in Saigon. Ellsberg's trial on 12 felony counts was dismissed on grounds of governmental misconduct against him. Ben Wizner, legal adviser to Edward Snowden, directs the ACLU's Speech, Privacy and Technology Project, which is dedicated to protecting and expanding the freedoms of expression, association, and inquiry. He has litigated numerous cases involving post-9/11 civil liberties abuses, including challenges to airport security policies, government watch lists, extraordinary rendition and torture.

Ball Python enthusiasts all seem to dream a similar dream in which they fantasize about their favorite species to keep and breed. Many have confided in me about how thrilled they would be to someday be able to discover a cool new mutation by spontaneously producing one in his or her collections, truly the fabric of fantasy for most of us (as the odds of this actually happening to you aren't very high). Now imagine if someone you knew serendipitously accomplished such a feat, and gave you the opportunity to purchase the project. Would you jump at it? Enter Winston Smith of WHS Reptiles who believed that when such a chance presented itself it needed to be met with immediate action! Reptile Radio Host CK catches up with Mr. Smith to uncover the skinny about this new line of Scaleless Head BP's for the ever hungry ears of double R faithful. Are they the same as the BHB line? Will these incomplete dominant morphs produce the coveted Scaleless Ball in their super form? Winston seems to think so, and his first season of reproducing them makes a strong case for that being a fact. Tune in and find out.
Former New York Times editor Edward Klein tells Rick there is a real blood feud between the Obamas and the Clintons.
