Topic: Remembering the fourth member of America's "big three" car companies

Guest: Historian and video journalist Joe Ligo

How Topic Discussed: Joe Ligo is a Western Pennsylvania native and former employee of Wall's Cornerstone TeleVision who has quit his full time job to develop a six-part documentary about the defunct American Motors car company. Why did he become interested in this story? Why does he think it's a worthwhile subject to explore? How did the rise and fall of the AMC company pace the rise and fall of American industry, and the development of automobiles? What were some of the connections of American Motors to the Pittsburgh area? Where can the influence of the company still be found?
