I recently finished reading my review copy of Joan Waugh's newest book, "U.S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth." This is an exceptional book for anyone with more than a passing interest in Ulysses S. Grant - including new history buffs and Grant scholars. Earlier this week, I was able to interview Ms. Waugh for my blog, This Mighty Scourge. A review of the book, and streaming audio to my interview with Ms. Waugh, can be accessed by clicking on the following link.

Mike, Joan is wonderful.  She has spoken to Orange County round table twice and will be speaking on her new book in February.  Can't wait to hear her again .

Susan,

I would definitely like to attend one of the CWRT meetings where Joan speaks.  She knows her stuff and is entertaining to speak with.  I hope you enjoy our interview.

Mike

Mike,
Any chance you could put your interviews in a single mp3 file for download (or is it a bandwidth issue)?

Thanks.

Dreww,

I have thought about doing that and it makes sense. Wordpress has limitations on file sizes, but I could put them on an FTP site where the entire file could be downloaded. Let me look into that. Thanks for replying.

I have made the majority of my interviews available for download - as a single file.  You can access all of these files by visiting my blog, and clicking on the Downloads page.

Thanks for the suggestion!
