Marjorie and Heidi interview historian Luke Stewart about his new book, “My Country Is the World: Staughton Lynd’s Writings, Speeches, and Statements against the Vietnam War.” Lynd traveled to Hanoi with Tom Hayden and Herbert Aptheker at the end of 1965 to the beginning of 1966 to try to open diplomatic channels between and U.S. and the Vietnamese.
