In this week's episode, we’re proud to welcome acclaimed author Adam Hochschild. His recent book, Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War is a best-selling history told through the eyes of a dozen unexpected characters. Adam is a master of narrative, and his new book is an absorbing and brilliantly researched account of a time when Americans poured into Spain as volunteers for the democratic cause. He also is a lecturer here at the J-school, and we asked him to stop by and talk a bit about his new book with our own Deirdre English, continuing lecturer and former editor of Mother Jones Magazine.
