Such a well done podcast. And so appropriate for our current times.
Digging deeper into recent history for its relevance to our current political situation is perfectly done here. Fascinating.
Born in 1977 so I donât have any firsthand knowledge of Watergate but know the gist. This is a fascinating look into the story. Just the right depth of reporting on characters and plots. Look forward to every next episode.
Wasnât alive during Watergate but very interesting to see the similarities between that episode and what is going on in the current administration. These are great for anyone interested in politics and historical events.
I was in my 20âs and lived through Watergate. At the time I read everything I could find in Philadelphia, bought the NY Times everyday (could not find the Post). This has many details I did not know and find fascinating.
When I found this podcast I was excited for it to start, I only knew what we were taught in school, which wasnât much, and of course, you had questions but nothing was really answered. This podcast helps you understand what really went on and just how important this event was! Great podcast, I recommend this podcast to any history buff, heck you donât have to be into history or politics to enjoy it, just listen... trust me.
I have never been interested in watergate, but with a recent recommendation I decided to give this podcast a try. I am so intrigued! There are so many things we could learn! History simply repeats itself... Thanks for spending the time researching this topic! It was thoroughly enjoyable to listen to!
I was born the year of the break-in so Watergate has always felt abstract in its retelling. This Podcast is the most fresh and insightful take on that era / scandal I have ever encountered. I look forward to each new episode.
Journalism the way it should be.
I have heard so often about the parallels of Watergate and the current administration. Iâm grateful to the podcasters for these episodes - theyâre revealing and fascinating and they give me hope that justice might just be served.
I was a teen during Watergate and thought I knew the whole story. Nope. This deep dive takes you into the backstory and reveals details and intrigues you never knew. It's also right on time for what's going on right now in the current administration. Don't miss it!
As a young woman who moved to Peru--the country--in 1972, I remember a toilet paper international Time or Newsweek with a small bit on a break in. Who knew? We couldn't imagine. But this podcast a reason why journalists and journalism matters.
I canât stop listening, wonderfully done and beautifully narrated.
Enjoying every second. So timely.
This is an amazing glimpse into the day to day stories during the time of watergate. I promise, you will hear stories youâve never heard before. Iâm so impressed with the interviews they got. I donated and got access to the plus episodes which is TOTALLY worth it. I really hope that once this series is done that these guys produce another series since theyâve done just such an amazeballs job at this one.
Can't wait for new episodes
I was 21 years old during the Watergate hearings and the events leading up to Nixonâs resignation. At the time I was completely enthralled. I watched every televised session of the hearings live and I followed the story as it unfolded in real time. This podcast has transported me back in time but itâs done even more. Itâs presenting details I hadnât known about, teaching me something new. Iâm fully engaged with your story telling. Incredibly Iâm hanging on every word and I find myself looking very much forward to the next installment. The producers of âSlow Burnâ have done absolutely fantastic work!
Those who do no understand history are doomed to repeat it
This podcast is really great. Calm. Relevant. Super interesting and deep history.
So many parallels...
I thought I knew a lot about Watergate, but I learned so much more about Watergate. Very, very Interesting.
Iâm 79 and was very aware of what was going on with Nixon, but this podcast brought me into the inner workings that was not available during the 70s. Must listen! Very applicable in ways to today.
Thank you for creating this podcast. I did not live during this time but you make this time period feel so tangible.
This is riveting and so educational. The parallels to the Trump-Russia scandal are unnerving.
I was a child during Watergate but it was referred to many years after and was clearly so important; yet I didnât really understand what it felt like to live through it until now. Thank you for all the first hand accounts from now-mature and well-known politicians and reporters. Really great stuff.
Even if you donât have much interest in watergate this podcast will capture you. Really well done audio journalism.
Keeps me on the edge of my seat every episode. Learning so many things I didnât know about Watergate, subtle connections to current events, and a great mix of narration with historical audio.
Having read a lot about Nixon and the Watergate scandal, I was surprised to hear more detail and new stories I hadnât come across. Great podcast
This is a well researched, informative reminder of how history is doomed to repeat itself, unfortunately for us in 2018. Well worth a listen!
I sat glued to the Watergate hearings as a 10 year old, which cemented my leanings as a political and news junkie. We learn from history and Slow Burn details the unraveling. So pertinent in Trump days.
Just wow. I great and riveting listen. You will be hooked on this!
Love it. Canât stop listening.
This episode should be a movie
I lived through all of this as a teenager. It is remarkable to review all that occurred then and the alarming parallels to current events. A wonderful podcast.
Reminds you that people will lie over & over & over to try to convince you they are telling the truth, especially in politics & for their political part. Sound familiar? Is is.
...and this podcast brings back the intensity of that time and so much more - all the behind the headlines details. I think itâs critical for everyone to listen today, given our current President, and how much defending our democracy depends on people who adamantly seek the truth.
Really great podcast. Delivers precisely what it promises: a compelling look at the dozens of weird, unremembered sidelines and offshoots and subplots. Well told.
essential to hear this podcast. illuminates the past and more imortantly the present
EXCELLENT SERIES! time after time, you hear something that happened during Watergate and it's happening again under this Administration
Lots of detail and yet you come away knowing little about the people being profiled.
I love the in-depth research and fast-paced narrative style. More like this please!
So enjoyable to listen to--I take longer drag walks just so I can hear more. Editing is superb.
To all the followers of trumpism, please, please listen to this podcast. See the similarities between Nixonâs crimes and Donald Trumpâs crimes. Itâs not about race or sex or party. Itâs about right and wrong, our own personal humanity and integrity. All we are now is the country of the âorange tanâ.
I lived through this (teenager) but learned a lot of new details. And this podcast is extremely well done.
Slow Burn is rich with stories and minutiae about Watergate that are as riveting as todayâs politics. At first blush, it feels less scary listening to this podcast versus current news because we know what the end of that story was. Most of us survived it, though not all, especially if you count service members who died in Viet Nam. So actually, itâs pretty scary to see the lengths that those in power will go. You can see your position mirrored in this Watergate expose wherever you stand today. I canât stop listening. I got a membership so I could listen to the extra editions only available to members. Itâs eye-opening, even though I lived it. And see The Post while youâre at it for a profile in courage.
Terrific podcast. Really interesting and unique perspectives on watergate beyond the movie and broad overview given in standard history lessons about the scandal. Horrible to learn how many Americans wanted to stand by Nixon because they just didn't think that his crimes were all that bad:.. Also a scary reminder just how slow and plodding the investigation was! Even worse, while there was partisanship over Watergate, way more Republicans were ready to turn on Nixon in respect for the rule of law. I doubt that will be the case with the current scandals surrounding Trump's admin
Informative, riveting, historical and real!!
Excellent podcast. So sad that we are clearly doomed to repeat unfortunate historical situations.
Being young and remembering the whole thing happening with NixonThis is great story telling that makes me relive it and itâs awesome Waiting for next episode
