On today’s show, we’ll learn about the thousands of young Japanese American who men fought for the US during WWII, even though they’d been forced into internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Also, a look at the history of Catalonian separatism on Backstory. Plus, Benoit Jacquot—one of France’s leading Post-New Wave filmmakers—will be here. And to start it all off, novelist and former literature professor Eric Larsen tells us what he believes is wrong with America—from politics to academia.
