Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Feb. 17-22, 1942 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by trusted aide Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:

  • Country estates in Hungary compared to  Wagner's Wahnfried and his own Berghof, and the stories of Karl May compared to American classics;
  • Hitler's preference for Bavarian-Austrian lederhosen (leather shorts for men) and why he had to give them up;
  • Wrong to shower too much care on colonial subjects, plus not enough theaters in Germany;
  • Why Hitler plans for his great observatory to be built at Linz, and the importance of teaching the people the wonders of the physical universe;
  • The privilege of playing the role of patron to the arts and sciences;
  • Ferdinand Porsche is the greatest engineering genius in Germany at the time, and Hitler sees continued success for the Volkswagen;
  • Praise for Schwartz and Amman as great talents who served the NSDAP, plus strong words against the "Jewish virus."
