Best Of: A Former Neo-Nazi / The Founder Of Girls Auto Clinic

Christian Picciolini spent eight years as a member of a violent, white power skinhead group. He eventually withdrew and co-founded a nonprofit to help extremists disengage. His new book is 'White American Youth.' Fresh Air also spoke with Patrice Banks about her new book, 'Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide.' Banks left a six-figure salary as an engineer to pursue her dream of owning an auto shop. She went to technical school, worked for free, and in 2016 she opened Girls Auto Clinic. Her auto shop is staffed with women mechanics, and caters to female customers.
