Riveting

US politics more riveting than any soap opera or Academy winning movie. Rachel Maddie’s ability to tell the story, investigative skills and inane ability to make it all understandable second to none!!! She somehow makes the illogical.... logical!

Great Stuff

I’m an expat living in New Zealand and am shocked this isn’t common knowledge like Nixon and Watergate. I had no idea Agnew was such a crook. I also find it ironic how today’s administration seems to be taking plays out of the Agnew playbook and regurgitating them on a daily basis. Excellent series and riveting story.

Fascinating and compelling

Who listens to NZ news anymore? This is just way too interesting. Love, as always, Rachel Maddow’s ability to craft a compelling narrative, give us a history lesson and build up to the vital links with current events. Not to be missed.
