This series is beyond Informative, Educational it’s Sensational

Rachel and her team have composed a brilliant historical illustration. Showing parallels to the current state in US and how the current vernacular/ playbook is not an invention of the current Administration.
Thank you so much I listen to the entire episodes in one sitting.
Thank you , Thank you ,Thank you.

History Alive!

Rachel, you brought history alive in this podcast! Well explained to appeal to all even if you don’t understand the American political system. It was a gripping true crime story that I doubt any crime writer would have envisioned as being plausible. But most importantly you demonstrated to us how history cans teach us so much about the past as well as the present. Thank you for an illuminating and well documented telling of history. A must for all to listen and learn. Thanks also to libraries, archives and, of course, librarians. The repositories and guardians of the countries history. Hiding in plain sight!

Great podcast a must listen !

Thank you for bringing this story to my attention ! I never imagined before listening to this podcast that anything like this has happened in our short history... wow , so many things that we can relate to today ... scary but also reassuring to know they are untouchables among our law enforcement to safeguard our values and the rule of law. Wow the GOP is a corrupted to the marrow organisation !
