    Levi Roach, Author of "Empires of the Normans” 

    Is the history of the Normans more than just the feats of William the Conqueror in 1066? Yes, says Professor Levi Roach. In this week’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast, we discuss Dr Roach’s new book "Empires of the Normans” which details how these descendants of the Vikings dominated European and Asian leadership and politics for centuries.

    Remembering Rex Early 

    Remembering Rex Early 

    He was a man as unique as his name: Rexford Carlisle Early. We lost Rex, a former Marine, on Veterans Day, and in tribute the “Leaders and Legends” podcast convened three of his closest friends to talk about Rex’s life, times, and laugh lines. Please enjoy Ann Delaney, Murray Clark, and Jim Shella as we reminisce about a true Hoosier original.

    Gareth Russell, Author of “Do Let’s Have Another Drink: the Dry Wit and Fizzy Life of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother”

    Gareth Russell, Author of “Do Let’s Have Another Drink: the Dry Wit and Fizzy Life of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother”

    Gareth Russell is a best-selling author and historian who was kind enough to join the “Leaders and Legends” podcast this week to discuss his delightful and funny book: “Do Let’s Have Another Drink: the Dry Wit and Fizzy Life of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.” It’s full of terrific stories and anecdotes (some of them related to what we saw in “The King’s Speech”) while painting a beautiful portrait of the person Adolf Hitler once called “the most dangerous woman in Europe.”

    Clint Hill, Secret Service Agent For Jackie Kennedy

    Clint Hill, Secret Service Agent For Jackie Kennedy

    A few years ago, we posted an interview with President John F. Kennedy Secret Service Agent Clint Hill and his co-author Lisa McCubbin Hill; just this month Agent Hill has released a new book titled “My Travels with Mrs. Kennedy” and in honor of his new effort, we are re-posting our “Leaders and Legends” conversation with Clint. He and his wife were fabulous guests who were very forthcoming not only about the events of November 22, 1963, but also the process of writing history as Clint lived it.  You may buy Agent Hill’s new book at: https://clinthillsecretservice.com/books/.

Great podcast

Robert - I just listened to Andrew Nagorski podcast. That was awesome! The context he gave on events in 1941 kept me hooked. Also, you are a very good interviewer. I am a subscriber now and will go back and listen to some past shows. Well done!
