It’s more of the Best of 2013 and today we start with NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me long-time host Peter Sagal.
Then, while exploring a remote cave in Eastern Europe in 1993, spelunker Christopher Nicola made an unusual discovery: a chamber that contained clear evidence that 20th-century people once lived there. After searching for more than a decade, Nicola discovered that 30 people lived in the cave during World War II. Bob speaks with documentary filmmaker Janet Tobias and Sonya Dodyk, who was just a little girl when she lived in the cave with her family. The documentary is titled No Place on Earth.
Finally, two-time Man Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel may seem like an overnight success, but she’s been a working novelist for over 25 years. Bob talks with Mantel about her career and the success she’s found by telling the story of Henry VIII’s England in Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. [Broadcast Date: December 24, 2013]
