Ed LinzToday my guest is Ed Linz, writer, retired military officer, and author of several books. This is the second installment of discussion of Ed’s 4th book, “They Never Threw Anything Away: Memories of the Great Depression by Americans Who Lived It.” The book is from the memories of 22 Americans who lived through The Great Depression in their own words. These people tell of their experiences gained while living during the social and economic chaos of that era. Tune in to hear about this wonderful new book and the stories within.

They Never Threw Anything Away is his fourth book. His earlier non-fiction works include Life Row, Team Teaching Science, and a novel, Hurtling to the Edge.  His interests include kayaking and  hiking (he recently “made it” to 15,000 feet on Mount Kilimanjaro).  He currently lives in Virginia and Maine. Ed encourages you to contact him via email at, on Facebook, or on Twitter @edlinz65. His columns and book information can be found at
