Brenda Wineapple, Chuck Hagel, elizabeth holtzman, impeachment history, John Dean, Sidney Blumenthal, William Cohen
Readers may enjoy a BBC podcast program that just came out earlier this week on the history of impeachment from ancient times to the modern day. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000bm83
It’s truly marvelous. The very best thing of its kind I’ve heard. A combination of live voices, recorded material from the past, actors recreations, and a terrific narrative line. It’s good enough that I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of their existing degree of knowledge about impeachment who wants a thorough and immensely engaging hour-long primer on the subject. I may, of course, be biased because I have the honor of joining former Representatives Elizabeth Holtzman and William Cohen, John Dean, author Brenda Wineapple, former Clinton staffer Sidney Blumenthal, and former Sen Chuck Hagel as the live voices on the program. But I don’t think that unfairly skews my appraisal of its merits.
If you’re interested in impeachment and have about 50 minutes to listen, you really should.
