Bagman

Thank you ms. Maddow for your excellent and concise reporting of history that’s again now playing itself out in today’s political field. I’m sure history will again repeat itself and justice will again be served, COLD!!!

Political corruption set to Groovy music

Thoroughly entertaining and informative. I was 12 in 1973 and we watched Watergate together as a family as if it were a miniseries. But, I had no idea there were this many criminals/future residents of the White House in the government at the time.
Makes you wonder what else is happening now that we are missing. I hope current members of Congress and Senate and Justice, etc listen to this and do the right thing. Great work!
And, yes the music is super snappy.

Excellent

Great look into a time in our nation’s history that has lessons for us today. You don’t have to be a fan of Maddow’s to enjoy this podcast. Though it might make you want to hear more of her comprehensive, intelligent coverage of our nation’s politics.
