Dan Gediman, Robert Heinlein and This I Believe

Each week Bob is joined by Dan Gediman, the Executive Director of This I Believe, Inc. to discuss one of the original essays from the 1950s radio series. This week’s featured essay is by Robert Heinlein who won four Hugo Awards during his 50-year career as a science fiction writer. Born and raised in Missouri, he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1929 and did aeronautical engineering for the Navy during World War II. Heinlein’s books include “Starship Troopers” and “Stranger in a Strange Land.” In spite of his successful career as a science fiction writer, Robert Heinlein’s beliefs are more down to earth. He believes in the decency of his neighbors, and the future of the human race. Click here to read a transcript and hear the audio of his “This I Believe” essay.
