Leon Neyfakh excavates the strange subplots and forgotten characters of recent political history—and finds surprising parallels to the present. Season 1 of Slow Burn captured what it felt like to live through Watergate; Season 2 does the same with the saga of Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

Customer Reviews

Excellent podcast

This is a detailed, well-researched podcast delivering on all the nuance and complexity of political scandals.



Informed but disappointed

Love this series but left feeling let down by the comment about historical rape allegations at the end of the finale of season 2. You can hate their politics but you can’t choose to believe a credible accuser against a conservative Supreme Court nominee and hint at disbelieving a - by your own admission! - credible witness against a democratic president just because it suits your political view. Well you can, but you shouldn’t. Disagree with politics, believe survivors.
