This week's Ron Burgundy podcast is a big treat -- at least for me. But I also think it should be for most people, especially is they like history. She's always a wonderful, lively interview, but far more than that Is one of my handful of favorite historians, Doris Kearns Goodwin -- who Ron describes as his ex-girlfriend...which they actually discuss at length. She wrote the wonderful book Team of Rivals, which served as the foundation for the Spielberg film, Lincoln. Won the Pulitzer Prize for No Ordinary Time about FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt. And the paperback edition of her latest history, Leadership: In Turbulent Times, has recently been released. The interview is full of wonderful stories, a great deal of charm, and much humor.
