Episode Description

Today we'll take a nostalgic look back at the past, and follow the journey into the present, of two men, who played significant roles in Woodstock and the Vietnam War. There would not have been a Woodstock had it not been for Elliot Tiber who saved it. He has since gone on to write Taking Woodstock, which was made into a feature film, Palm Trees on the Hudson, and his newest memoir, After Woodstock: The True Story of a Belgian Movie, an Israeli Wedding, and a Manhattan Breakdown. Tiber's journey reflects a man who created a Forrest Gump life for himself, running from one milestone to another. While Woodstock was happening in New York, Danny Lliteras, was serving in Vietnam. Unlike Elliot, Danny has responded to this concurrent historic event by running inwards, and writing about his experience in a semi-autobiographical book entitled Viet Man: a novel. He has also written about his post-Vietnam experience in the book Flames & Smoke Visible. One era, two different journeys.
