    Sallie Rowland, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

    Sallie Rowland, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

    Our community lost a true leader and legend earlier this month with the passing of the indomitable Sallie Rowland—appropriately, on Memorial Day, we are re-posting our podcast interview with her conducted in 2019. God Bless You Sallie.

    When someone starts a sentence with ’the first woman to…”—that sentence usually ends with Sallie Rowland. Pioneer, entrepreneur, a Indiana Historical Society “Living Legend”, and former Girl Scout, Sallie is one of the most beloved and respected figures of our time. She sits down with Danielle Shockey and me for an absolutely delightful “Leaders and Legends” podcast.

    Jason Lantzer, Butler University History Professor and Author of “Dwight Eisenhower and the Holocaust.”

    By witnessing the horrors of the Holocaust in person, General of the Army Dwight Eisenhower changed history by insisting we preserve history. On this week’s Leaders and Legends podcast Butler University History Professor Jason Lantzer joins us to discuss his enlightening and well-researched book “Dwight Eisenhower and the Holocaust.” One thing is clear: Ike was determined to have as many people as possible see what happened in the camps so that nobody could ever say it didn’t happen.

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!
