Watergate history viewed via a 2018 lens. Succint and engaging.
Of dishonesty that contributed to so many deaths and hardships for our countryâs young people in Vietnam Nam and Cambodia.
First two episodes provide valuable additional information for even those who lived and have widely read about Watergate. However they should just can the annoying comparisons to Trump. Nixon was a deeply thinking politician brought down by human impulses that have studied for thousands of years. We donât know that about Trump.
Lived through that era.
Well done! I have been recommending this podcast to anyone who will listen. It offers so much insight into our world today. Although history repeats itself, it is fascinating to see how much difference as well as similarity there is at these crucial moments in history.
This is a story pack with lies and liberal bias. What idiot watches any movie made in Hollywood and considers it fact.
This is a period of US history that we should and must remember in todayâs day and age. The podcast does a fantastic job of putting all of the events in context. The use of historical video and audio recordings as well as recent interviews make it all the more engaging. Well done!
Just listened to Episode 1. It is very interesting and exactly what I was looking for, BUT leave your personal bias about Trump out of history. I will listen to more in hopes you do not continue pushing your views and just educate us on the facts. I would have given it a 5 so far if opinions had been left out.
Liberal propaganda poorly disguised as a historical podcast
This podcast is crucial to American history (past and present). Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it...which is why this matters so much. Excellently put together! Youâll find out things you never knew about Watergate and the voices of the past will seem to echo sentiments of the present. Strap in, I burned through this pod in one weekend and loved it! I feel much more educated on the subject and itâs hooked my interest for certain!
Great listen...canât wait to hear season 2 wink wink!!
What a tremendous and relevant listen!
I am not even done listening to all of the episodes, but had to leave a review of these great podcasts. I am 53, so I have a few fuzzy memories of Watergate, and have read some books about it to learn more about what happened. These podcasts are so informative-chock full of interviews, news clips and a lot of information I havenât found in my own research. Very entertaining, unbelievable and timely with what is going on in DC right now. Highly recommend!
This has me on the edge of my seat. So fantastic. I simply canât wait for your next episodes.
I love this podcast! I'm late to the party, but will probably listen a second time to get all the details. Hope there will be more.
I can't wait for more episodes!
90 seconds into the first episode and I was hooked! Absolutely thrilling story telling!
I wasn't alive for this era and my history classes always failed to talk about this time. I learned so much and the connection between the Watergate scandal and what is now occurring politically is eery. Highly recommend. I can't wait till the next season!
Simply great stuff. Writing, narrating, research, just perfect.One thing though...keep in mind, as President Ford himself said, inherent in the act of pardoning someone, and the acceptance of that pardon, is an admission of guilt. In other words, you canât pardon an innocent person. Nixon always denied he did anything illegal; by accepting Fordâs pardon, he ended up admitting his guilt. Ford isnât as dumb as people think.
America desperately needs a multitude of perspectives on historical events. Our collective understanding of history and the web of connections that spiral out from the past is shallow at best. This ignorance is draining the life out of our society. Slow Burn is a type of show that might just help.
. . . are condemned to repeat it. This is a fascinating and, letâsface it, fun history of Watergate. I know those who are positive Trump is the victim of a witch-hunt arenât likely to listen, butwe might be a bit better off and less divided if they did. One of the things they would learn is how, as facts came out, even Nixonâs strongest supporters could not abide being lied to.
interesting history lesson for those of us who weren't born yet. very well done
Nixon's problem rested with his habit of telling the truth up to the point he knew he would lose when he would lie.
I thought I was really informed about Watergate, having been in college and politically active at the time. However, as much as I knew all the characters, the podcast brought together back stories that I wasn't aware of were incredibly illuminating. For anyone who thinks this might be a rehash, I would be surprised if there arenât a number of tidbits that they wouldn't find new. Highly recommend
The show is informative and there are some real revelations but please...give the anti-Trump stuff a break.
This podcast explores the smaller parts that made up the scandal. Many know how watergate ends but did you know how it began? You will when you listen. Binge worthy! Replay worthy!
Super informative and fun to listen to. As someone born a long time after Watergate, I found it a very, very enjoyable listen.
The show is really good I would have given it 5 stars but the beginning episode turned me off because of the comparison to current events I listen to shows like this because of love of history not for political commentary
This was my first lesson about Watergate and Iâm hooked. The narrator was great. Canât wait for next season.
Fantastic podcast. Brilliant investigation
I have been obsessed with Watergate for many years, but my wish would be for every American citizen to hear all the episodes of this incredible podcast. Although it stands on its own as a thoroughly researched, well organized and highly entertaining historical record, it also inevitably frames what our great country is going through right now. The similarities and differences between Watergate and the Russia Investigation are unavoidable. This podcast injects just the right amounts of fear and hope. It is a creative masterpiece.
This was a wonderful podcast. It left me both disparaged for current happenings, and hopeful to overcome them. The pacing was good, the details riveting. I really enjoyed some of the interviews with some of the people in the fight.
Excellently presented historical information! I have learned so much!
Even though we all already know how this presidency ended... This podcast perfectly documents and captivates the moments leading up to investigation, the crazy insane political stunts before Nixons resignation & everything in between.... I didnât want to get out of my car because it was so thrilling & suspenseful!! You will NOT regret listening to this podcast!! Instead, youâll regret not having listened to it sooner!
Iâm so glad I found this podcast!
This is a well done podcast that was worthy of binge listening start to finish on one long drive. I highly recommend
Furious this is over. Finished it yesterday. Such a compelling story, especially right now. Wow. So well done. Thank you!!!
Comprehensive and well researched!
I lived through this but only knew part of the story. Thanks for this excellent podcast and alerting the country.
This is a fantastic podcast. My only complaint is that it's too short! There's so much to cover here, and so much that people born after this period don't know (I'm in the 'only know what was in All the President's Men' camp). I can understant the desire to keep this short and sweet, and not to go overboard into every little detail of the case, but a few more episodes would have been great!
I lived through Watergate and itâs more timely and essential than ever to know the details.
So many parallels to today.
This podcast is amazing. Never really considered looking deeper into Watergate or past All the Presidentâs Men, so I assumed it was a bygone time of bipartisanism. (i know better now) The way this podcast is produced is very well doneâit kept me hooked the whole timeâand gave me hope for the state of our country now.
As soon as it became clear that there was a scandal in the making from this administration, I longed to review what had happened during Watergate. Then, along came this wonderful podcast. The creators have certainly done their homework and many details, long forgotten, were brought to my attention. In addition, there was so much that I did not understand in that time period during my mid 20s. One cannot help but compare what is going on today with what went on then. Thank you for making this podcast at this important time.
I burned through SLOW BURN over the course of a weekend. So good. Well produced, enlightening and timely. I highly recommend!
This podcast is amazing!!! I randomly came across it last night and binged on episodes 1-7 today. The story is very well told and all of the facts are clearly laid out. Iâm pretty sure that after listening to this, I can officially label myself as historian. :-)
I didnât even know I wanted to know this stuff.
So excite for season 2!
