Back when everybody hated Harry S. Truman

From a small town with no college degree, Harry S. Truman was an unlikely president who arguably changed the course of the 20th century. Author Jeffrey Frank joins guest host John McCaa to discuss the man who authorized the use of the atomic bomb, his low popularity, and his policies that impacted civil rights. His book is “The Trials of Harry S. Truman: The Extraordinary Presidency of an Ordinary Man, 1945-1953.”
