    On this episode we round out 1968, which sees Richard Nixon win the presidential election and be on his way to the White House. We chat about Nixon's record and how, after promising to bring the American people together, he ended up driving them further apart.
    Also, was LBJ really trying to be a hippie in his final years before dying 1973? We answer this question and much more.

    Lyndon Johnson's America: Pt..4 - The Crisis

    Lyndon Johnson's America: Pt..4 - The Crisis

    It's the fourth installment of our series on Lyndon Johnson's America and we are into crisis mode. 
    We pick up the story in mid-1967 and discuss how Vietnam, racial violence, and a host of other contentious issues rise to the fore and overwhelm Lyndon Johnson, leading to his eventual withdrawal from office.
    Along the way we compare 1967/8 with today's political climate, discuss race riots, Tet, the media, the counterculture, second-wave feminism and much more. 
    Thanks again for listening.
    Cheers,
    Mark and Malcolm
