Digging deeper into recent history for its relevance to our current political situation is perfectly done here. Fascinating.

Born in 1977 so I don’t 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.

Really interesting!

Wasn’t 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 20’s 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 wasn’t 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 don’t have to be into history or politics to enjoy it, just listen... trust me.

Great research!

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.

Extremely well researched and seems fairly reported

I have heard so often about the parallels of Watergate and the current administration. I’m grateful to the podcasters for these episodes - they’re 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.

This is an amazing glimpse into the day to day stories during the time of watergate. I promise, you will hear stories you’ve never heard before. I’m 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 they’ve done just such an amazeballs job at this one.

I was 21 years old during the Watergate hearings and the events leading up to Nixon’s 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 it’s done even more. It’s presenting details I hadn’t known about, teaching me something new. I’m fully engaged with your story telling. Incredibly I’m hanging on every word and I find myself looking very much forward to the next installment. The producers of “Slow Burn” have done absolutely fantastic work!

Great info

I’m 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.

I was a child during Watergate but it was referred to many years after and was clearly so important; yet I didn’t 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.

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.

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.

I was in college during Watergate

...and this podcast brings back the intensity of that time and so much more - all the behind the headlines details. I think it’s critical for everyone to listen today, given our current President, and how much defending our democracy depends on people who adamantly seek the truth.

Trump is Nixon reincarnated

by Morbid listener on Jan 14, 2018

To all the followers of trumpism, please, please listen to this podcast. See the similarities between Nixon’s crimes and Donald Trump‘s crimes. It’s not about race or sex or party. It’s about right and wrong, our own personal humanity and integrity. All we are now is the country of the “orange tan”.

Stunning parallels

by Trick question on Jan 14, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Slow Burn is rich with stories and minutiae about Watergate that are as riveting as today’s 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, it’s 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 can’t stop listening. I got a membership so I could listen to the extra editions only available to members. It’s eye-opening, even though I lived it. And see The Post while you’re at it for a profile in courage.

Riveting and entertaining

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

I love this podcast!!
