Daughter Diplomats Behind WWII Leaders Guest: Catherine Grace Katz, author of "The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War" The Yalta Conference had a lot of big personalities: Churchill, FDR, and Stalin, for starters, who were referred to as “The Big Three.” Meet the women referred to as “The Little Three,” the daughters of Churchill, FDR, and American ambassador Averell Harriman, who served as diplomats and confidantes for their fathers during this tricky time of negotiation. The Sons and Daughters of Infamous Modern Dictators Guest: Jay Nordlinger, Senior Editor of "National Review" and author of "Children of Monsters: An Inquiry into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators" What would life be like as the child of a dictator? The lives of these children show that an infamous pedigree alone does not condemn a child to replicate their parents.
