Heroes of the Second World War – Discover Rishi Sharma’s Amazing Project #WWII

Interview with Rishi Sharma

Since mid-October, I have essentially been on tour, launching my new documentary film and book, The Last Ring Home. In case you had not come across it yet, here is the trailer:

I am now back in the saddle and working on the next chapter of the story, including hopefully getting the film on national public television in the US. In the interim, I wanted to bring to you another story that needs to be told. It’s the story of a 19-year-old who is on a magnificent mission.

Below you will find my podcast interview with Rishi Sharma. His ambition is noble and entirely consistent with my own. His mission and project will undoubtedly make a meaningful mark in our world: to capture the stories of the remaining combat heroes of WWII before they all pass.

Below, you’ll find the show notes and, of course, you are invited to comment. I hope you will be equally inspired by Rishi’s commitment and purpose.
