Two nonfiction authors recently appeared on NPR's Fresh Air to promote their April releases.

Full disclosure, I'm a fan of linguist Amanda Montell's podcast Sounds Like A Cult, which naturally made me want to share her interview with Tonya Mosley to promote The Age of Magical Overthinking: Notes on Modern Irrationality.

You can read highlights from (or listen in full to) their conversation about how information overload stokes irrational thinking on NPR's website.

Also, Literary Hub has an excerpt of The Age of Magical Overthinking, which came out April 9.

The other intriguing interview came between Rachel Lance and Terry Gross, about Lance's April 16 release, Chamber Divers: The Untold Story of the D-Day Scientists Who Changed Special Operations Forever.

Lance is especially qualified to write about the research that went into developing underwater technology during World War II, as a researcher who herself has done work for the military.

You can read highlights from (or listen in full to) the conversation about the scientists who subjected themselves to experiments in face of the urgency brought by WWII at NPR.
