    LAST MISSION TO TOKYO

    LAST MISSION TO TOKYO

    In 1942, the United States, still reeling from the Japanese surprise attack on our naval fleet at Pearl Harbor, needed to show Japan that they were not invincible. Jimmy Doolittle led a fleet of 16 bombers on a successful raid over Tokyo- 13 of those crews managed to crash land safely in China -but a handful of American pilot were captured and kept in Japanese prisons where they were starved and tortured.. The US authorities believed they were all dead. After the fall of Japan in 1945, the American Secret Service was amazed to find 4 survivors from the 1942 Doolittle Raid being held in a remote Japanese prison. When the war trials began- an unexpected courtroom drama took place as the American prosecution and the defense tore into each other- forever raising the question of why a civilized society needs to defend a barbaric aggressor at all. Our conversation with LAST MISSION TO TOKYO author Michele Paradis will shed light on answers to questions that need to be asked and answered.

    HITLER'S DEATH-WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

    HITLER'S DEATH-WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

    When Berlin fell in April-May of 1945 under the Russian onslaught, Adolph Hitler and his new bride Eva Braun, as the story went for years, committed double suicide- he by a gunshot to his head, and she by cyanide. The story continued that their bodies were carried outside of their bunker and set ablaze by their personal guards. For years the Russians kept the whereabouts of their corpses a secret, and conspiracy theories abounded. Some said they had escaped by plane or submarine to South America, Others said that Hitler's body double, not Hitler, was the body that had been burned. Author Robert Hutchinson with his new book The Death of Hitler, examines the evidence and delivers the true story of what happened to Hitler and Braun as well as the stories of the attempted assassinations of Hitler which came very close to ending his life and his atrocities, had it not been for what many call "the luck of the devil".

    AGENT JOSEPHINE: AMERICAN BEAUTY, FRENCH HERO, BRITISH SPY

    AGENT JOSEPHINE: AMERICAN BEAUTY, FRENCH HERO, BRITISH SPY

    Prior to WWII, Josephine Baker was a music hall diva renowned for her singing and dancing, her beauty and sexuality, and she was the highest paid female performer in Europe. When the Nazis seized Paris she was banned from the stage along with all "negroes and Jews"- but she refused to return to America- instead, she vowed to stay and fight the Nazis with every fiber of her being. She became a master spy for the French, serving British and Allied intelligence as well, providing crucial information she was able to get through her network of important contacts and her ability to travel when she began performing again in southern France and neutral countries. Agent Josephine has been optioned for a multi episode tv series. This interview with Damien Lewis will keep WWII and espionage fans glued to their listening devices.

    RABBIT HOLE:THE VANISHING OF AMELIA EARHART AND FRED NOONAN

    RABBIT HOLE:THE VANISHING OF AMELIA EARHART AND FRED NOONAN

    1001 interviews author, podcast creator, filmmaker, and Director of Project Earhart Chris Williamson, about his new book 'Rabbit Hole: the Vanishing of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan', which covers in depth the 4 major theories as to what happened to Earhart and Noonan in 1937 when their Electra went down en route to Howland Island in the Pacific.. Some of our earlier appearances on Chris's "Vanished" podcast are transcribed for the book, including the story of the "Message in the Bottle", a very convincing story that supports the crash and capture theory.

wolfie/wolf ,

I agree

Love the way you give all sides of history. Not through today’s eyes But how the people in their time felt and believed And you really do a good job with a wonderful radio voice. This podcast and your others. Haven’t tried your Love stories yet but will listen soon. As I have said before. I hope some of your podcast will be heard by teachers and then their classes hear them. I love it when your young listeners hear them And are astonished to hear the truth about Americans history and real heroes. Not the revisionists history.

Awesome new podcast.

Great new podcast. Especially enjoyed the podcast about animal war heroes. It is always clear that Jon has read and enjoyed the featured book when interviewing the author. Does a great job of leading the author to provide a cohesive and interesting message. New Mexico Gal.
