Smart, funny, and eerie

This story contains a number of fascinating (and ouright eerie) similarities to certain politicians in the present. The rise and downfall of a criminal VP in the White House (not that long ago) should be much more widely known. Very well researched and brilliantly delivered.

Spirow Agnew

I new Spirow Agnew only as a boogey man in Robert Anton Wilsons "illuminatius" books. So, this is a great primer about the historical Agnew. Not quite as strong as "Slow Burn" but that is solely due to the story being much more straightforward. Definitely worth listening to.
