This episode was masterfully done! Rachel Maddow has always been my favorite journalist but in this podcast she is extraordinary! She is a consummate storyteller. Really draws in the listener and grips them in such a way that renders them incapable of distraction. This was a most compelling...Read full review »

Excellent! History truly does repeat itself.All we need to do is change the names and we have today!

Was only nine when this all went down. Glad to finally know this history almost 50 years later. Thanks Rachel!

Loved it. I barely knew anything about this presidency, especially not Spiro Agnew. Super informative. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

A fascinating recap - done in a clear, concise and even entertaining way as only Rachel Maddow and her team can do. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Incredible tale expertly told
Gianttwins via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/15/20
Ask anybody what they know about Spiro Agnew and you get an assortment of vague recollections but no one really remembers (living it or learning about it) specifically what or how he came to resign. This is an extremely important event in our nations history that was almost entirely eclipsed by...Read full review »

Well done to Rachel & her team!! This was fabulous, I listened to it all in one sitting. Love your work Rachel, I would love to hear you do more of these!

Ok 👍 He’s just like Donald Trump I think this is a good podcast 😼👍👍

After long last, I finally got to sit down and listen to this series. To say that this event is eerily similar to contemporary events is an understatement. Down to some of the language and the tactics, VP Agnew pulled the wool over his colleagues’ and his supporters’ heads. Thanks to this...Read full review »

Rachel Maddow’s voice, expertise and well developed skill at connecting the dots will be the gift that keeps on giving for generations. I am a better citizen because of her gifts. JamaicaMeLaugh

I’d like to point out to the trump fanatics that have spoiled these reviews with peppered insults.. just because the conversation is above your intelligence level, does not make it fake news. What you see here is the blueprint to trumps entire presidency. He has used every tactic Agnew,bush and...Read full review »

The TrumpRegime is very much like Nixon with donald himself as Agnew. It’s just about signing stuff, putting his ‘mark’ on something, anything, everything. He doesn’t much care what. The Republican Party has found their ‘enough digits to hold a pen’ guy.

Everyone everywhere should hear this podcast. Brilliant work. Critical timing, extraordinarily relevant to our lives now!

This was a very interesting and informative podcast. Well researched and well presented.
Planet W via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/20
This was a fascinating retelling of history from my lifetime that I was totally unaware of as a high school sophomore. I hope to find more of these types of historically enlightening stories in the future. Job well done by everyone involved.

My goodness I listened to this in one hit and what a great time I had . The great lady is as great and engaging as she always is and the reporting/reporters/journalism is a joy to behold !! oh and the theme tune just lets you know you’re going to get the good stuff !! more please

Great podcast series - it should be made into a movie and you’ve got to use the same music soundtrack!!

You always teach me something! Thanks for the history lesson.

Thanx, Rachel. I really enjoyed reminiscing about the end of the Nixon presidency.
Carulee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/20
Please do another one, Rachel.
Weatfyh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
Greatly enjoyed this podcast series. Agree that best put aside a few hours to listen to it in one sitting. (To the nasty haters of Rachel leaving disgraceful bad reviews here, shame on you!)
Eva ZHAI via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/19/20
Ms Maddow is always good for laugh with her misplaced crises and her closed-minded allegiance to the progressive church. Her closest friends should let her know that no one takes her seriously because her responses to the news are conditioned and predictable. She is the opposite of integrity and...Read full review »

I can’t believe it took me until 2020 to find this! Each episode is out together so well, and so easy to keep up with. Even for people that don’t know about the Nixon Era, it catches you up, but for us that do know. They have soooo many other angles & insights I never would have known about....Read full review »
Jerm206 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/20
I knew that this would be well explained and researched, and I'm so right. Thank you, thank you, thank you Rachel and the rest of your crew. I want more, like the Bush’s rise to power and the Bush/Gore race. There has to be some crazy only you and your producers can dig up.Read full review »

Can you do one for trumpy please? From interested listeners in New Zealand
Nattyg113 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 04/25/20
This is such a parallel story of what is going on in our white house today. Who will be our George Bell? I was too young to remember this and I cant see anyone doing what that justice dept did. Great story telling by Rachel Maddow as usual.
tc2538 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/20
It’s true. Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. And here we are. Again. Dr. Maddow is at her best when she’s speaking on issues that she feels passionately about. I have been wondering since Roger Stone appeared on the scene how long it would take for someone to pick...Read full review »

Great job by Ms Maddow and her crew. Didn’t take any break until I finished all episodes. A clear mirror to what is happening now in Trump’s administration. Respect.

Dylzz=29 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/02/20
WOW this was an amazing story. I was a young teenager in the early 70’s and given there were only 3 TV stations I was exposed to the Nixon Impeachment. Little did I know it would spark my interest in politics. This unknown angle of that story told now years later really adds to the intrigue but...Read full review »

Rachel Maddow continues to raise the bar with this fascinating and history packed podcast. As a Brit studying history and politics Agnew has never been anything other than a peripheral figure in the Watergate scandal. This podcast bought him and his place in US history into such sharp focus it...Read full review »
ButterflyCaught via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/20/20
I was seven in 1973 so I don’t have any first hand knowledge of Watergate. This was truly informative, and not boring. Wish I would have listened to it when it came out in 2018! Congratulations on your Peabody award nomination!
horseshoecrab19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/20
I listen to podcasts all the ...this was the best ever!!! Thank you Rachel for putting together such an informative series. I did not know most of this story. Looking at our news stories today I am reminded of the saying “History has a way of repeating itself.” Thanks again

I know very little about America’s history or politics. This was an interesting piece of storytelling.
Tiggy23 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/08/20
it feels exploitative to abuse Maddow’s impeccable reputation by promoting Mathew’s podcast here. All MSNBC commentators are not at all the same, at all.
rjw47 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/20
I’ve been absolutely fascinated by Nixon administration’s 2nd presidential campaign and term for ages, and I’m excited to get another aspect of the story. I am ALL about the retrospectives from the people who were involved. I’m always dying to know: What were you thinking about this? How did you...Read full review »

Listening to this other scandal that was occurring at the same time as Watergate is riveting. The backstory, interviews and research that went into this podcast was superb. Between Rachel’s books, show and this podcast she is my favorite explainer. Please Rachel do more podcasts.

It took we a while to get to listening to Bagman. It’s a year later and the house has just impeached Trump. I’m hoping that there are wonderful patriots in the judiciary and other parts of our government who help clean out and up the mess of the likes of Trump, McConnell, Graham, etc. I thank...Read full review »

Being older than I ever thought I would get, the story of Spiro is a foggy memory of my past. Back then I was a Republican like my father. My mother was a Democrat who made Edith Bunker seem like a Conservative. My father made Archie look like a moderate by comparison. To say my view of the...Read full review »
