    Jason Bell Interview

    Jason Bell Interview

    Matt Crawford speaks with author Jason Bell about his book, Cracking the Nazi Code. For those that think history is boring this is the book to read. Bell uncovers just declassified information about Winthrop Bell, also known as agent A12. A true Renaissance man Agent A12 uncovered the Nazis before they even had that moniker and also broke Hitler's final solution to the world years before the start of WWII. A truly unbelievable piece of history, this book reads like a spy novel.

    Warren Kozak Interview

    Warren Kozak Interview

    Matt Crawford speaks with journalist and author Warren Kozak about his book, Waving Goodbye. Kozak wrote this book to describe what he went through after losing his lovely wife, Lisa. Grief is as unique as our fingerprints, and we all go through it differently, however, there are throughlines. Kozak shares his grief and how he and his daughter dealt with it as well as how we can all prepare for ourselves and our loved ones, so we don't make an already difficult time more intolerable. A truly touching read that I implore all my listeners to pick up.
