    Paul Harvey Podcast: (S01-E07) The Rest of the Story - The Rookie Second Baseman

    In this podcast episode, we feature Mr. Paul Harvey and one of his signature radio programs, The Rest of the Story. With the start of the baseball season in early April, I thought a short series on this theme would be good. This is the second episode of a three part series of shows on professional baseball players. I call this episode “The Rookie Second Baseman”. The Rest of the Story was a radio program hosted by Paul Harvey beginning during the Second World War on the ABC Radio Networks and ran until his death in 1990. This radio show consisted of stories presented as little-known or forgotten facts on a variety of subjects with some key element of the story held back until the end. So that the ending of the show is not revealed in this summary, I will not say anything else about this episode.

    (S01-E16) Historic Voices Podcast: Alexandr Solzhenitsyn - "A World Split Apart"

    In this podcast episode, we feature Alexandr Solzhenitsyn delivering a speech named by others as A World Split Apart at Harvard University in 1978. He is considered the Soviet Union’s greatest author, historian, and resilient critic of the government. In 1970 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. This speech was delivered during tensions of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred less than 15 years earlier. The Vietnam Conflict and ongoing violence in the Middle East were supported on opposite sides by both countries. Both nations were rapidly developing new weapons with even more destructive force than during World War Two. In his speech at Harvard, Mr. Solzhenitsyn shares about the crisis that faces the world and possible solutions to end the violence and threat to humankind. You will hear the voice of him and that of the translator. In addition to an available download transcript of this speech <click this link for transcript>, I also included another PDF from Wikipedia with the life story of Mr. Solzhenitsyn. <click this link for the life story> Rather than offering a commentary after this speech, I recommend reading the Wikipedia entry about him and his struggle to share the struggle within the Soviet Union and those throughout the world.

    Historic Voices Podcast: (S01-E14) President Eisenhower - Atoms for Peace Speech to the U.N.

    In this podcast episode, we feature President Eisenhower delivering a speech named by others as Atoms for Peace at the United Nations in 1953. This speech was delivered during high tensions of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Berlin Blockade had only been resolved a few years earlier in 1948. That event nearly triggered a military confrontation between those who countries then. Both nations were rapidly developing new weapons with even more destructive force than used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War Two. President Eisenhower previously was General Eisenhower serving as the Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe during World War Two. After the war ended, he retired from the military and was elected President of the United States in 1953. Eisenhower was now in a position to take nuclear energy as a weapon and help repurpose it for peaceful purposes. This speech to the United Nations was part of an intentional campaign called “Operation Candor” to discuss the risks and hopes of a nuclear future for the American people.
