Brilliant Format!

Great content, interesting and diverse perspectives and interviews.

Mouthful of rotting crockery ,

2nd episode gone AWOL

Oof! Filler time already? The only thing the 2nd episode had to do with the murders of Tupac & Biggie was a Tupac tape in the car of a guy who shot a cop dead. This should be a bonus episode. Where’s the series editor at? You lost the narrative thread dude.

very good with only a couple of flaws

Season 1 about Watergate is fantastic for political wonks, and the quality only ever drops when the live show becomes quite political with the host making some biased statements. I actually have the same political opinions as the host, but this wasnt the show for him to voice them.

Season 2 is a step down in quality. The story doesn’t bounce along as well, although it is still a good ‘deep dive’ The biggest error by far was episode 8- an entire episode dedicated to an unsubstantiated rape claim. This part was pure tabloid journalism and markedly different in quality and substance to the rest of the episodes. Out of every possible way of ending the series, the host chose the ‘balanced’ option of saying that Clinton was a rapist? Really strange way to end the show.
