Franklin D. Roosevelt: Road to the New Deal, 1882-1939 - Roger Daniels Franklin D. Roosevelt: The War Years, 1939-1945 - Roger Daniels

My second podcast for the New Books Network is up! It's an interview with the longtime historian Roger Daniels about his new two volume biography of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Road to the New Deal, 1882-1939 (which I reviewed here) and The War Years, 1939-1945 (reviewed here). It was a challenging interview in some respects, though I have to say that I hope I'm doing as well when I'm approaching my tenth decade on the planet!
