Almost Amazing

This podcast was almost amazing. It’s the sort of podcast you can’t stop listening to and it certainly gets into the nitty gritty of the Lewinsky scandal and all the other scandals that spiderwebbed around it. BUT the reporter’s own political bias really shines through at certain points and that taints what could have been great objective journalism.

Great storytelling

But please ease up on promoting Slate Plus! I lived through these times and it’s interesting to revisit all of it.
