    BROTHERS DOWN THE STORY OF THE USS ARIZONA AT PEARL HARBOR

    BROTHERS DOWN THE STORY OF THE USS ARIZONA AT PEARL HARBOR

    We interview author Walter Borneman about his riveting book BROTHERS DOWN, which is the story of the heroes aboard the USS Arizona, which was dive-bombed and sunk by Japanese planes on December 7th, 1941. 63 of the Arizonas 1, 177 dead were brothers. At this point going into WWII, fathers, sons, and brothers serving together were not uncommon. Author Walter Borneman gives us a preview here of a story that needs to be shared and remembered- that America must always maintain its vigil and must be ready at all times to defend herself.

    CIVIL WAR COMMANDO THE DARING RAID TO SINK THE CSS ALBEMARLE

    CIVIL WAR COMMANDO THE DARING RAID TO SINK THE CSS ALBEMARLE

    You may not have heard of this largely unsung hero of the Civil War- William J. Cushing...but you are about to. In this interview with author Jerome Preisler (Civil War Commando-William J. Cushing and the Daring Raid to Sink the CSS Albemarle) we are treated to a first-hand look at what goes into the writing of a great non-fiction novel and why 21 year old Commander William Cushing, an undisciplined hothead who dropped out of Annapolis three months before graduating, became the "Jack Ryan" of the Union effort to stop the South's most formidable weapon- the ironclad CSS Albemarle..

    THE FINAL HUNT FOR D.B. COOPER EXCLUSIVE HISTORY CHANNEL INTERVIEW

    The search for hijacker D.B. Cooper has perplexed the F.B.I. and hundreds of investigators for 50 years. The History Channel contacted us at 1001 to let us know they are launching a new show called Histories Greatest Mysteries on Nov 14th and asked if we would like to interview the lead investigator for the premier show of the series, titled THE FINAL HUNT FOR D.B. COOPER- and this is that interview (with Erc Ulis).

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.

New Mexico Gal ,

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.

Bad Sound

I enjoy your history podcast because I am a ameteur historian. I have been listening for 2 years now. I believe nthat you have a BIG problem with recording the speakers voice. I don't think you proof listen to it before publing it to the public. It seems that over the past few months there have been more and more bad recordings. The speaker you interview sounds like their in the bottom of a barrel or some other defect in sound quality. Lately I seem to be deleting more and more of your episodes rather then trying to listen and not enjoying it because of the poor quality of the interviewie. Please, please don't alienate some of your most dedicated listeners, like me. This episode of Ulysses S. Grant is a terrible recording. I will delete this podcast account from my itunes account (and I know others feel the same way as me). Thank you in advance for fixing this ongoing problem.
