Welcome to the Not Old Better Show, I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode number 388. Today’s show is brought to by Plexaderm.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living, author interview series, our guest today is historian, author Steven Ujifusa. Steven Ujifusa has appeared as guest on CBS Sunday Morning and NPR. His new book, Barons of the Sea, brings to life the dynasties that built and owned the magnificent clipper ships of America’s nineteenth-century-era of maritime glory.

That of course is our guest today on The Not Old Better Show, Steven Ujifusa, reading from his new book, Barons of the Sea. Steven Ujifusa is with us today, and he will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates, Wednesday October 23, 2019. More information is available at our web site, but, now, please join me in welcoming via internet phone, author Steven Ujifusa.

Thanks to Plexaderm for sponsoring our show today, and my special thanks to Steven Ujifusa for joining me today. And, thanks always to the wonderful Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show. Talk About Better. The Not Old Better Show. Thanks everybody.
