Fascinating and Thoughtful

Soul searching and looking for the meaning of the Vietnam War, the podcast is a valuable background piece to watching the Ken Burns, Lynn Novak’s documentary on the Vietnam War that was shown on PBS.

Excellent follow-up to the TV series

Each podcast goes a little deeper than the broadcast episode, with interviews with people involved in the making of the series. Well worth a listen.
