We have spoken to a lot of guests on this show in the first 31 episodes. We’ve spoken with researchers, authors, historians, and experts in aviation and aerospace. However, there is one area that has eluded us thus far. Family. While we have spoken to a lot to the extended families of Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan, and George Putnam we have never had the opportunity to have them as a Chasing Earhart project guest. Until now.
Amy Kleppner is the daughter of Muriel Earhart and the niece of Amelia Earhart. She is an educator, writer, and adventurer. I suppose being an adventurer just runs in the family.
On the 32nd episode of the Chasing Earhart podcast, Amy joins us via Zoom from her home in Vermont to discuss the impact and legacy of her mother Muriel and her aunt Amelia in one of the most special interviews that we've ever conducted.
