Guest Host: Tom Gjelten
Guest podcast host, Tom Gjelten of NPR, speaks with Diane Rehm and her tour guide in Cuba, then a conversation with Tom Nichols, professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College on how Americans have lost faith in expertise and why this development is so troubling.
For “From the Archives” this week, we go back to Cuba. In 2008, Diane interviewed Tom about his book, “Bacardi and the Long Fight for Cuba”. It’s about the famous Rum-making family, and how their story is so closely intertwined with 19th and 20th century Cuban history.
