Adventures and Troubles in Foreign Lands and at Home
Monday, May 26, 2014
On today’s Memorial Day show we're re-airing some favorite interviews from March. Shane Bauer, Joshua Fattal, and Sarah Shourd—the three Americans who were captured by Iranian forces while they were hiking and were held for two years—tell us about being in prison and then finally being released. Carl Hoffman explains how he uncovered new evidence about the disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in New Guinea in 1961. We’ll look at the diaries of George F. Kennan, who devised the policy of containment during the Cold War. Bruce Dancis talks about becoming an anti-war activist in the 1960s—and going to prison for resisting the draft during Vietnam.
