Excellent resource

Having lived through Watergate I thought I knew everything about it but this podcast opened up my eyes to even more information than I thought possible. Very well done and worthwhile listening to from beginning to end.

Fabulously well told story!

This is a fabulous podcast. One of the very best I have heard, and the best possible way to learn about a history I only vaguely remembered. Thank you! Thank you!
