Outstanding

This isn’t intended as hyperbole—I think this may be Rob Reiner’s best work. I have studied this topic for years but the podcast has revealed an incredible amount of detail that I didn’t know. The series has challenged my thinking & caused me to see puzzle pieces I didn’t know even existed. Well done!

Not impressed

I can’t believe this podcast is from the History Channel. The documentary from the late 80’s early 90’s done by THC, The Men Who Killed Kennedy, is absolutely incredible (free on YouTube). This podcast regurgitates the Warren Commission Report without question. Well done from a production standpoint, but it has no merit.

Lack of proof ,

Hmm?

I enjoyed the podcast but it seems to suffer from confirmation bias. It’s seems to support the Warren report. Perhaps, the History Channel succeeds because the premise is 24 hours after and not much was known at that point. Disappointing that contradictory evidence to official reports was not considered.
