    Introducing: 1865 Season 2

    Introducing: 1865 Season 2

    April 15, 1865. President Lincoln is dead and the country in turmoil.

    Secretary of War Edwin Stanton takes control, determined to bring the assassin to justice—but the hunt for John Wilkes Booth isn’t all that grips Stanton.

    Lincoln’s successor, Vice President Andrew Johnson, is likely to bend to southern interests and undo the very progress for which Lincoln died. Edwin Stanton must employ every bit of political wile he can muster to secure the future of the freed slaves, and the nation.

    Consumed by his conviction, Stanton will betray his friends, his honor, and the very constitution he is sworn to protect, all to steer the country towards justice.

Pharma Bro is an excellent 3-episode series

I really enjoyed Pharma Bro, but I would have liked to hear interviews/quotes from some of the actual participants in the case

Misleading attempt to rewrite history

Interesting until you come across an attempt to mislead. The podcast quotes a former head of counter intelligence and try’s to pass over and mispronounce this persons name. Please clarify that the philanderer Peter Strzok is the individual who has lied under and carried out personal agendas. The podcast presents him as Pete Strzok(Struck) as if we would not realize who this is. I’ve enjoyed your podcasts in the past. Even the biased ones, but your attempt to mislead your listeners ruins your credibility.

Loved it!

This was a great podcast. Very well narrated. But now, it’s one of the many in my sub list that have become just another add for something else. I’d love for it to come back.
