Ted Kaczynski, who would become known as the Unabomber, was a mathematical genius who could seemingly never find his place in society. Angry, isolated, and truly alone, he embarked on a campaign of terror utilizing his calling card, the mail bombing. One of the people most responsible for bringing him down was then-FBI agent Jim Fitzgerald.
A "History Personified" alum, Fitz is bringing the story behind the new Discovery Channel eight-part mini-series, "Manhunt: Unabomber," starring Sam Worthington (as Jim Fitzgerald), Paul Bettany, Chris Noth, and Jane Lynch. The debut takes place Tuesday, August 1st at 9 PM, and Fitz is back on our show to discuss the story behind the Unabomber, his involvement in bringing him to justice, whether or not he's had contact with him since, and more.
