In this episode, Dr. Andrew Cutler interviews Mr. Marko Perko and Dr. Stephen Stahl about their newly released book “Tesla: His Tremendous and Troubled Life” and the intersection between Tesla’s genius, creativity, and bipolar disorder. How is your book unique from any book that’s been written on Tesla before? What is the main message that you’d like readers to take away from this book? In this episode Mr. Perko and Dr. Stahl address these questions and much more!

Marko Perko is a graduate of the University of Southern California. He has always had an insatiable thirst for knowledge of all types, and as such, he is highly regarded as a modern-day Renaissance man, author, historian, polymath, polemicist, and history communicator. He is the author of the critically acclaimed and wildly popular book “Did You Know That . . .?” He is also a novelist and the writer of an international bestselling knowledge-based board game, as well as the creator of the Cultural Enrichment Programs education series, and a software developer―

Perko has written for and edited numerous publications, and he has worked as a columnist, speechwriter, composer, musician, lecturer, and playwright.
