A Big Job: A Conversation with Dick Spink

Season 3, Episode 10,   Dec 13, 2023, 01:49 AM

For years, I’ve been discussing a dream expedition that would bring some of this case's brightest minds together in a collaboration that could rewrite history forever. 

Sometimes, when you’re investigating a scene like the one unfolding in Buka, you get lucky enough to pull an ace. And boy have we ever got one for you tonight. 

Dick Spink is one of my very favorite people in all the Earhart story. He’s a real life Indiana Jones - a now retired high school teacher that has spent his time out of the classroom, running investigative trips all over the Marshall Islands. He’s one of the most connected people in this entire story, the face of History’s Lost Evidence, among many others, and one of the loudest voices in the room when it comes to the Japanese Capture Hypothesis. 

But what you don’t know is, since they originally met in 2018, Dick Spink and Bill Snavely have been talking. 

We’ve been name dropping his involvement for months. Now, tonight, he makes it Official.

This, is Dick Spink.
