Sioux Empire Podcast 097 Owl Creek Bridge and Theresa Stehly

This podcast contains adult content, listener discretion advised.

Theresa Stehly makes her triumphant return to The Sioux Empire Podcast this week to tell Robert Mehling, Seth Glover, Natasha Estes, and Dustin Buri all about city government and her adventures in amateur journalism. But first, Seth give the crew a little run down on “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by Ambrose Bierce. A story Kurt Vonnegut called “the greatest American short story.” Theresa tells us all about her newsletter “The Stehly Report” and talks about what it would be like to run a small newspaper. She also gives us an update on last week’s legislative coffee and a quick rundown of recent city news. This episode is brought to you by Sioux Falls Sno Jam Comedy Festival celebrating comedy and…Snow! That’s right there is no other comedy festival like it. Thirty comedians from around the country will be traveling to Sioux Falls, SD to perform in various venues across the city. Over the course of three days they will perform in both stand up and themed showcases, not only testing their comedy wits but their endurance to the cold. All the while supporting a good cause. Net proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics of South Dakota. Kurt Vonnegut also once called The Sioux Empire Podcast “the greatest American Podcast.” Sure he died seven years before this podcast existed, but you’d be amazed what you can find out with an ouija board and enough cough medicine.

 

Seth’s Book Club
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce
“An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, a short story by American author Ambrose Bierce, is “one of the most famous and frequently anthologized stories in American literature”. Originally published by The San Francisco Examiner on July 13, 1890, it was first collected in Bierce’s 1891 book Tales of Soldiers and Civilians. The story is set during the American Civil War, in which Bierce himself was a soldier.

“An Occurrence” is renowned for its irregular time sequence and twist ending. Bierce’s narrative, discarding linear sequence, and adopting the protagonist’s inner experience, is an early employment of stream of consciousness. Calling it “the greatest American short story,” author Kurt Vonnegut added, “It isn’t remotely political. It is a flawless example of American genius, like ‘Sophisticated Lady’ by Duke Ellington or the Franklin stove.”

It has been adapted as a film, as well as an episode of the twilight zone and, has been imitated in popular culture thousands of times.

Rep Isaac Latterall On Why He Threw Your Vote Away

Rep Isaac Latterall, a member of one of the most corrupt state legislatures in the country, wants you to know why throwing your vote away was the right thing to do. You see, as Latterall explains it to his voters, whom he believes are too stupid to govern themselves, you were scammed by some Massachusetts lawyers who used big words and lots of pages to confuse you. These big city folk used big, complicated terms that our little South Dakota voter minds couldn’t handle like “Conflict of interests.” The South Dakota State Legislature thinks you are so stupid in fact, that they used emergency powers to make it impossible for voters to do something so stupid again. How are legislators like Latterall supposed to get support from their out of state dark money donors if you keep trying to take his feed trough away?
Don’t worry, with people like Rep Isaac Latterall watching out for us, South Dakota’s voters will never have to worry their pretty little heads over big scary, complicated things like ethics.

A great big thank you to Bruce over at South Dacola Blog for getting this video.
