For Beyond 50's "History" talks, listen to an interview with Guy Lawson.  He'll talk about a strange and true story that will be made into a Hollywood film starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller.  In 2007, three twenty-something kids from Florida - Efraim Diveroli, David Packouz, and Alex Podrizk - ended up in charge of a $300 million Departement of Defense contract to supply ammunition the the Afghanistan military.  Their essential infrastructure in navigating the arcane world of defense contracting consisted of a dive apartment, an Internet connection, a few cell phones, and a steady supply of high-grade marijuana.

The President and the Apprentice:
Eisenhower and Nixon, 1952 - 1961
For Beyond 50's "History" talks, listen to an interview with Irwin F. Gellman.  He offers 20 years of research that sheds new light on the dynamic between two, great American political figures.  More than half a century after Eisenhower left office, the history of his presidency is so clouded by myth, partisanship, and outright fraud that most people have little understanding of how Ike’s administration worked or what it accomplished. Gellman will prove that Eisenhower, not Truman, desegregated the military; Eisenhower and Nixon - not Lyndon Johnson - pushed the Civil Rights Act of 1957 through the Senate; Ike trusted and relied on Nixon, sending him on many sensitive overseas mission; Eisonhower never made plans for the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba; and much more.

 Soccernomics: Soccer & Money

For Beyond 50's "Finance" talks, listen to an interview with Simon Kuper.  He'll talk about the "hot topic" of modern soccer being in chaos.  Barely a summer goes by now without a cherished club flirting with bankruptcy or a wealthy businessman funding a mid-table team's ascension to Champions League competitor.  You'll learn about the aboliton of the maximum wage in the 1960s, through to the impact of TV money, both at home and abroad in the 1990s and 2000s, Kuper will explain how money, or lack of, affects fans' favorite clubs.  Intense competition is good for the fans, so long as football clubs survive - which they always do.  The rich men who sink their fortunes into subsidizing our entertainment should be encouraged to go on doing so - their loss is our gain.

How America Can Dominate in Soccer:

According to Kuper, if the U.S. would like to be winners, they would have to send their best players to Europe; hire European coaches; adopt a diverse, international playing style that incorporates different elements and not one particular style, but a collective one; and take the "Money Ball" numbers approach of statistical analysis, which is rarely practiced by soccer clubs around the world.
