Salt Lake City, Utah – In 1972 Bobby Fischer was acknowledged as the most famous person on the planet. The world was fascinated by the man, born to a homeless mother, who rose to be the most celebrated chess genius. But even as he graced the covers of magazines and unseated champions, Fischer began his descent into paranoia and fanaticism. Biographer Frank Brady knew Fischer and in 1965 wrote "Profiles of a Prodigy." Now, Brady's written a new book and he joins Doug to explore Fischer's journey from genius to madness.
