    Introducing: The Frost Tapes

    Introducing: The Frost Tapes

    Police brutality. Government corruption. A struggle for gender equality. The fight for a free press. You know how they say history repeats itself? Fifty years ago, legendary television host David Frost interviewed the most influential thinkers, politicians, activists, and cultural icons of their time. And most of those tapes have been lost for a generation. Until now. The Frost Tapes takes you on a deep dive into David Frost’s archives featuring guests like Black Panthers Huey Newton and Stokely Carmichael; the future chairman of Fox News, Roger Ailes; the first Black woman in Congress, Shirley Chisholm. The podcast also brings you Robert Kennedy’s last longform interview; never-before aired material from Frost’s famous interview with President Richard Nixon; and a bonus episode of selections from an intimate 3-hour conversation with Joe Biden from 1987 that has never been broadcast. You won’t find these tapes anywhere else.

Fantastic

Great in length and context and, as someone who listens to a lot of fact podcasts, I'm happy to say that it is not repetitive

THANK YOU!!

Thank you for doing an episode on Misophonia!! So many people, including myself, suffer from this and people don’t believe just how BAD it effects us let alone it be a real condition. As triggers & severity differs from person to person, it’s very hard to treat. We just try to learn to cope in various ways. Thank you for speaking out for us. ❤️

Great content, poor recording

I find it really hard to get through a full episode even though they are so short. The audio sounds cheaply recorded (I’m quite sure it’s not) but it sounds tinny and almost like it was done via a phone rather than in a studio. Add to that the presenters fast, slightly monotone delivery with loud breaths every few seconds ... I just can’t listen.
