Episode 90- POWs & American Girl Dolls with Jessica Pearce Rotondi

We’re joined by Jessica Pearce Rotondi for a conversation about her riveting book What We Inherit: A Secret War and a Family’s Search for Answers, her family’s 36 year search for her Uncle Jack, finding a CIA source at her book club, her memorable trip to Laos, and her adolescent obsession with learning history from American Girl doll books. We also recommend: Broken Genius by Drew Murray, The Boys’ Club by Erica Katz, and Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. Audiobook of the week is Black Bottom Saints by Alice Randall.  Plus – Dave is a virtual NBA fan, Laura is weirded out while back to school shopping and Andrew made the Sunday Denver Post.
