October 21, 2014•59 min
Part A: One of the most fascinating yet little known aspects of the Civil War are the stories of four women, a socialite, a farm girl, an abolitionist, and a widow, who were spies. Karen Abbott illuminates the lives of these courageous women in her book, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy. Part B: William Alexander is more than a Francophile. He wants to be French. There’s one small obstacle though, he doesn’t speak a lick of la langue française. Alexander eats, breathes, and sleeps French and travels to France to be immersed in the culture. Prime Time Radio host, Mike Cuthbert recently travelled to France as well. They discuss the tricks of learning the language of love.
