Today, in part four of this week’s series, “An ‘Occupational Hazard’: Rape in the Military,” we hear an extended version of the interview with Brian Lewis who enlisted in the Navy after graduating from high school. Three years later he was raped by a senior petty officer. Lewis will discuss that attack, why he was diagnosed with a Personality Disorder, how his military career ended, and the treatment he has received as a male survivor of Military Sexual Trauma.
Next, we revisit a conversation Bob had with Gore Vidal. Vidal died Tuesday in Los Angeles. In 2006, Bob visited him there and they had a wide-ranging conversation in Vidal’s Hollywood Hills living room about his life and work, touching on everything from his feelings about “right-wing nut” William F. Buckley to Vidal’s belief the Mafia was responsible for John F. Kennedy’s death.
Then, Bob talks sports with John Feinstein, Washington Post columnist and co-host of SiriusXM’s “Beyond the Brink” (Mad Dog Radio, channel 86). [Broadcast Date: August 2, 2012]
