Highly recommended

I expected a podcast from Rachel Maddow to be entertaining & insightful, but WOW this was so much better than I expected!
I listened to the 1st episode maybe a day after it came out and waiting a week for a next felt like forever.
It clearly took a lot of time & effort to put together, and having some of the main actors in the story tell it on their own words only made it more interesting.

Just Stunning.

Extremely well researched and presented podcast. I’m based in the UK and started following USA politics once the malignant force of T**#p came into being as a real House of Cards. I’m a big fan of Rachel, plus some other presenters from MSNBC. I’m learning a lot and wish America resolution in 2019. Here’s wanting the same team to develop the podcast for the end of this current administration.

Better than Game of Throwns

A story of heroes and villain’s. This isn’t a fantasy story, it’s real. Some of the characters you will hear about seem larger and braver than life..... they were. Some of the villain’s unexpected but unfortunately culpable.
This is a true lesson about history repeating itself, have we the heroes today? We will see
