Making choices means living with the consequences, especially when it’s political! This week, two shorter audiobooks with big impact:
From Hitler and Mussolini to Peron and Trump, lies have been the weapon of choice for fascist and populist political leaders during the past century.
This short audiobook by a noted Argentinian historian examines the connections between fascism and lying – can the former succeed without the latter?

During World War II, a Japanese-American man refuses to make a loyalty oath to the US or to serve in its armed forces, instead staying in internment camps and prison for years.
When he finally returns to Seattle, he is shunned by the Japanese-American community, the girl he loves has married someone else, and his mother believes that Japan has won the war.
This full-cast performance shows a full range of emotions as the man wonders about finding hope while living with the choices he has made.
