  1. Wow, what an incredibly interesting interview. I can’t think of anywhere else where you could hear such an important topic. I’ve been very interested since seeing the movie in the 80’s. I now Must get to Hershey which is only an hour from me to see their Tucker display. Thank you Sean for sharing your story and Mark for bringing it to us.
