Let’s talk religion! Sure, you avoid the subject at family dinners to avoid a brawl, but author Steven T. Collis joins us to talk about his book, The Immortals, which tells the story of four chaplains from different religions who collectively made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II. We also talk a little bit about his newest book, Praying with the Enemy.
Privateers, pirates, whales, hurricanes, and lighthouses are just a few of the things Eric Jay Dolin has written about. Eric tells me how he made it all happen, what you need to become an author yourself, and how Covid affected his latest book, Rebels at Sea.
Dinosaurs! Author and Paleontologist Riley Black joins the podcast to talk her new book The Last Days of the Dinosaurs, the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World film series, and how a big asteroid made it possible for us to exist. It’s okay. I know I already had you at “dinosaur.”

Pulitzer Prize winner Debby Applegate joins us to talk about her new book, Madam, her addiction to research, and the things she’s learned along the way. We also talk about winning the Pulitzer for The Most Famous Man in America and, of course, trashy TV.
