Solid Gold and Ton Heavy

A tremendous show about an election that is more bizarre and corrupt than almost anyone remembers. The story is captivating, and the podcast features interviews with a wide range of firsthand participants: Justice John Paul Stevens, Florida Sec of State Katherine Harris, and dozens of others.
