From the Civil War to WWII to the Cold War — in honor of Memorial Day, we’re focusing on war stories in our latest podcast. So tune in for a glimpse into some lives that have been affected by war, including a decorated general, a girl who just wants to make it through the Cuban Missile Crisis, and even a pigeon (yes, a pigeon!).
- Hidden in plain sight — aka our mystery book revealed
- America against itself, and under fire — aka our war story picks (Bull Run and Countdown)
- A related kid rec (Douglas Macarthur: An American Hero)
- We honor the homing pigeons of the world
