Dr. Kurt Schwenk
It was a pretty incredible gift to be able to work with Kurt on this episode. His work spans decades and it took multiple tries to understand it in a way that could be put together in a narrative. I am very grateful for all of his time, warmth and generosity. I had to leave many, many wonderful pieces of research and factoids out due to time constraints but I would urge any of you that are interested to dive deeper into his work.
His colleagues Dr. William G. Ryerson, Ms. Amanda E. Hewes and
Ms. Sara Horwitz contributed a great deal to some of the research that I mentioned.
Dr. Margaret Rubega ( deserves thanks for introducing me to Kurt in the first place.
