Bob Edwards Weekend, May 24-25, 2014
Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Andrew Carroll is a man on a mission. After discovering that there are thousands of historical landmarks that are not just unmarked but in danger of being forgotten, or worse, destroyed, he founded Here Is Where. This volunteer initiative encourages people to find and mark unmarked historical sites across the country. Carroll’s book, Here is Where: Discovering America’s Great Forgotten History, is now available in paperback.
Nearly 70 years ago, a British bomber was shot down and crashed in The Netherlands…one of more than six-thousand planes lost over the tiny country during World War Two. Last fall, local authorities finally decided to excavate the crash site. Bob talks with Dutch journalist Sandrina Hadderingh about the documentary she produced called Forever 21. It features interviews with family members of the Australian and British crew.
Following World War II, the United States secretly smuggled former Nazi scientists into the country, notwithstanding their crimes against humanity. Best-selling author Annie Jacobsen details this covert plan in her book Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program That Brought Nazi Scientists to America.
