Marble Halls & Silver Screens With Sarah Lee Ep. 150: The 'FBI Transparency, The Searchers, and Entertainment AI' Edition

The bulk of the show today is an interview with a friend of the show I’ve had on before. His name is David Vining and he has a new book out called, “Colonial Nightmare.


When George Washington was 21 years old, he went on a dangerous mission into the wilds of the Ohio River Valley to deliver a message from the Virginia colonial governor to a French military base, Fort Le Boeuf, a message to prevent war between England and France. The journey was harrowing and dangerous as Washington, joined by frontiersman Christopher Gist and Iroquois leader Tanacharison, also called the Half-King, braved the bitter cold of an unforgiving winter.

Washington wrote of his journey as a report to the governor, but he gave an incomplete portrait of the goings on of his journey, for he was attacked. He was attacked by something he could not explain. Something not of the New World but of the Old. Something that had preyed upon innocent for centuries. Something that scared him so much that he refused to report it to anyone.

Here, for the first time, is the full account of the colonial major’s journey. Far more than an act to prevent conflict between nations, it became a conflict that pitted evil against a man unlike any other, a man who had to potential within him to lead a nation.


We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week, but this week I hope you’ll tune and hear a lively discussion of one of the best John Ford films ever made: The Searchers (trailer below). I also talk very briefly about what’s happening at the FBI as an institution and what’s happening with Hollywood as they stare into the lifeless eyes of AI.



The show lives on Spotify and you can also find me at iHeartRadio, Apple PodcastsFCB Radio’s Spreaker, and Deezer.
