Don’t stop

Not sure if the podcast has ended since no new episodes but very interesting. Hoping you don’t let the critical comments discourage you. It’s not representative of everyone

Watergate

Your bias is showing again: the Nixon campaign used “former CIA operatives “ where the Obama administration used current FBI agents to the same purpose.
I don’t disagree with your facts, only your selection of facts that you use.
Please try to be equally hard on everyone
