Richard Rhodes on Nagasaki, 70 Years On

On the August 20, 2015 edition of Tell Somebody, Richard Rhodes appeared for the second time in as many weeks. Rhodes had been on the phone for the July 30 edition of the show, ahead of an August 9, 2015 speaking engagement in Independence, that would mark the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki, Tell Somebody was in attendance at Community of Christ Church in Independence for Rhodes' speech, and was subsequently on hand to speak with him about an hour after the speech.

Richard Rhodes was born in Kansas City, Kansas and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and Independence, Missouri. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his 1986 book, “The Making of the Atomic Bomb,” and has written over 20 books on a wide variety of subjects.

Joe McGovern- The Other Side Documentary

For the August13, 2015 edition of Tell Somebody,I got together with Joe McGovern to talk about his current project. According to his website, theothersidedocumentary.com, Joe is a progressive liberal democrat who has always been interested in politics, but who recently grew tired of the extreme political partisanship in America today. He got the idea for a documentary film he calls “The Other Side: a liberal democrat explores conservative America” to see if he could find another way – a better way – to talk to those he disagrees with. 20,000 miles, 5 months, 35 states and 82 interviews later, Joe and his team are editing the footage of his journey into a 75 minute documentary.

Joe and Charlie were passing through the area again on August 8, 2015, and I caught up with him in Independence, MO for breakfast and a conversation about his film. Give a listen.
