Camilla Hall (right), organizing women workers in the East Bay Regional Parks District, Oakland, Calif., 1973.

My colleague and friend, Amy Mattson Lauters, has started a new podcast called “Tales From the Midwest” because let’s face it, the Midwest is pretty great and holds a lot of intriguing stories, which often get overlooked. Amy was kind enough to invite me to talk about Minnesota native Camilla Hall and her involvement in the Symbionese Liberation Army.

The podcast is about 20 minutes long and I’d love it if you listened. I’m almost completed with the manuscript and I’ll be shopping it around soon. This podcast is like my first “test drive” in getting the story out there.

If you want to know more about Camilla, just search this blog for “Camilla Hall” — I’ve written a few blog posts about her. And if you’re looking for more information on the SLA, the best book is The Voices of Guns, which came out in 1977. It may be difficult to find, so you can check out Jeffrey Toobin’s American Heiress, which also provides a good overview. If conspiracy theories are your thing, then reach for Brad Schreiber’s Revolution’s End.

Thanks for reading and listening!
