Pod-Fest 7 Senator John McCain And Sharon Robinson

Arroe Collins Like It's Live

Hey it’s Arroe and this is Pod-fest 7. A couple of conversations with people we know either through entertainment, politics, science, medical or by helping us put our lives back in order. They’re played back to back. I’ve learned that podcast listening isn’t always about a four minute song. The lyrics we share in the everyday world make being a part of this new age of content incredibly special and these guests always bring their story. On this episode we’re going to spend some time with the late Senator John McCain who in December of 2014 brought us the book Thirteen Soldiers. From their acts of self-sacrifice to their astonishing bravery, these thirteen soldiers embody the best America has to offer. Speaking of history. John’s conversation will be followed by Sharon Robinson. The daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson. Sharon had incredible access to some of the most important events of the era, including her family attending the March on Washington as guests of Martin Luther King Jr. But Robinson was also grappling with her own personal problems like going through puberty and being one of the only black children in her wealthy Connecticut neighborhood. I’m Arroe and this is Pod Fest Seven
