Despina Stratigakos, author of Hitler at Home, joins Laurie and co-host Boris Drayluk for a wide-ranging discussion about how tasteful interior design operated as propaganda in the Third Reich. They discuss the powerful woman at the heart of that effort, Gerdy Troost, and the lessons learned for our own celebrity-saturated politics.

Also, Nicholson Baker, author of Substitute: Going to School With a Thousand Kids, returns to recommend Vladimir Nabokov’s Speak, Memory.
