Start at minute 41:03.(to 1:34:00) Dan Manley interviews on behalf of small town America. He asks unexpected questions and lets me go down many different paths, covering material I don’t discuss in the book, such as what my sister Carol’s role was, the potential women’s spy network, Virginia’s eye for great photographs, what original documents offer to historians and much more.
