Enjoy this Vault episode with Steve Snyder!


Original Show Notes:
For the second straight week, the guys got learned! Author Steve Snyder came to hang out in the Lounge! Steve wrote, "Shot Down: the true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth." What a fantastic journey Steve took us on during his time with the guys! His father, Howard, was the namesake of the book's title! Steve tells us about how he came to write the book, and all of the people he talked to during his research, INCLUDING THE MAN WHO SHOT HIS FATHER'S PLANE DOWN! When was it that his father finally told Steve about the time he spent in Belgium? He also explains the message the book is intended to send, and the most dangerous job, in WWII. The guys sat and listened in amazement as Steve told about his father making his way to safety, from Occupied Belgium. 
Steve then ventured into the world of sports and talked about his love for UCLA basketball, and the first-ever game at the famous Pauley Pavilion, on the campus of UCLA. The two-time National Champions were upset in that game... by a VERY unexpected opponent! Steve was there! Why are the Rams thinking about changing their logo?! Steve shares his thoughts! What a show! What else do we talk about? Well... THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION........ MATT! #grabalisten
