What if we were living through the next Watergate? That’s the question behind the podcast Slow Burn, about the scandal that brought down President Nixon. It tries to capture what it was like to live at a time when a paranoid president accused of obstructing justice was the subject of a long-running investigation. Then, as now, nobody knew how it all would end. Slow Burn host Leon Neyfakh joins us to explore a precarious chapter of history and how it can help us make sense of what’s happening today. (Rebroadcast)
