This week marks the 75 th anniversary since D-Day, the battle that led to the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi control. We’ll reflect on this important time in world history with a local historian. Then, we’ll meet a high schooler that has been fighting for multiracial awareness in Ohio and across the country. And, an interview with Wait Wait Don’t Tell me Host Peter Sagal ahead of the show’s trip to Blossom. Join us.
