Monday May 24, 2010 | The Last Nazi Hunter

May 21, 2010 at 11:44 am | Posted in Coming Up | 2 Comments

We’re joined by “the last Nazi hunter.” Dr. Efraim Zuroff works to find and prosecute Nazi war criminals around the world, vowing not to let the aging population of Nazis “die in peace.” He argues that the passage of time doesn’t diminish their guilt and has made it his life’s work to bring them to justice, no matter how many years have passed since the Holocaust. Dr. Zuroff is in town this week and he’ll join us to talk about his work and how he started this mission.

Friday May 21, 2010 | History of Trains in Charlotte

May 21, 2010 at 8:45 am | Posted in Coming Up | 5 Comments

In 1840 Charlotte was a tiny, unimportant town of less than 5,000 people, but city leaders knew a way to fix that. They connected to a railroad that went through Columbia to Charleston. That single act has done more to put Charlotte on the map than anything else according to our guest, historian Walter Turner. We explore the history and importance of trains in Charlotte. All aboard for a look at the past, present and future of Charlotte’s railways.
