2. Just finished it.

NOT to be missed. I found myself gasping at the similarity between Spiro Agnew and Fraud 45. There were a handful of real American heroes in the story. Listen to Bagman! It is riveting.

13. Riveting nails it.

It was amazing to relive that period and learn what was going on behind the scenes. It stirred up misty-eyed feelings about Truth, Justice and the American Way.

30. and found the original prosecutors

now in their 70s.

I think there was some declassification due to time that made more information available.

You start listening and can't stop. Luckily, I'm a trucker. Sure makes the drive more enjoyable. Just have to resist running cars with tRump stickers off the road lol

10. Yes!

About 5 episodes in. She does a great job.

There is something so enjoyable about just tuning in to audio - when it's well done. It allows you to move around and do other things while listening. I have some great audio books I love to listen to on some walks, outdoor chores cleaning and cooking. Not always, but for repetitive or mundane activities.

18. Yes, it was great. I remember when Agnew scandal

happened but her podcast told me a lot I didn't know at that time or had long forgotten. I hope she will do more podcasts in the future.

27. Yes, and it was excellent. Wish I could hear her special that aired last month on Nixon.

There were only a few dates it aired.

Titled ‘Betrayal’, it explored how Nixon extended the war in Vietnam when he did not have to, just to help him win the presidency. Johnson had proof. That proof is now available.

The documentary however is very hard to find online. I find teasers but nowhere do I see it available to watch.

Anybody else have any luck?

29. Rachel & Her Team Did an Outstanding Job With In-depth Research

This podcast could not have been more timely. It connects the criminality of Republicans during the Watergate Era with the criminality of Republicans today. They’ve been dirty for decades.

32. I listened to it today after reading this thread

Wow - it was outstanding! I learned so much. And the parallels to Trump are uncanny.

Thanks!
