On today's episode, Adam chats with Kate Moore, author of the incredible book The Radium Girls. This work of nonfiction recounts the story of the women who worked with Radium-based paint, ingesting poison every single day, and their fight to make sure the tragedies they endured never happened again.
Kate discussed the massive amount of research she did to bring this story to life and also shared her experiences as a ghost writer and editor. Take a listen and then borrow, purchase and recommend this book. It's astonishing.
