BIAAS: The Botstiber Podcast Episode Two: Dr. Deborah Cohen


Select Category

In the newest episode of The Botstiber Podcast, author of Last Call at the Hotel Imperial: The Reporters Who Took on a World at War (2022), Dr Deborah Cohen discusses the compelling stories of five American foreign correspondents that were paramount to informing the public during the dramatic interwar period after WWI.

From unimpressed interviews with Hitler to friendly letters with Nehru, listen in to how these reporters balanced high-stakes journalism with their personal lives, all while warning the world of rising dictators and a looming war in Europe.

Professor Reill’s book, The Fiume Crisis: Life in the Wake of the Habsburg Empire (Harvard University Press, 2020), explores the Adriatic port city’s turbulent postwar years spent divided by Great Power politics.
