Today’s guest is no less than extraordinary. There is no way we can do justice to his life history in this short intro, in this single episode, or even if we dedicated this entire podcast to it, for that matter. No joke. But just to give you an idea: After witnessing the Nazi book burnings and Kristallnacht, he escaped Germany in the nick of time in 1939 only to be on the front lines during the invasion of Normandy as part of the British Royal Army Service Corps. After the war, he interrogated the Nazi Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop as part of Counter Intelligence, was awarded the Military Medal by King George VI as well as France’s highest honor, the Legion of Honor, and now holds the Guiness World Record for being the eldest Radio Talkshow Host. But not too old to have skydived just last year at the age of 94.
Oh yeah, and he acted in a couple of Harry Potter movies.
Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I am extremely thrilled and tremendously honored to be joined today by host of the radio show Walter’s World, Walter Bingham.
