S5 Ep 41: In this episode, meet Will Doig, Anne Applebaum, and the storyteller known as "The Captain." These authors have written compelling narratives that combine history and current events, from Will Doig's tracking of China's advances in high speed rail, to Anne Applebaum's examination of how and why democracies around the world are turning towards authoritarianism. And to add a splash of irreverence to the mix, "The Captain" has a few hot takes on "history lessons you should have learned in school." Now, listen in to hear each of these authors talk about recording their audiobooks.
