Is it possible for an American Vice President to carry out a criminal enterprise inside the White House and have nobody remember? To have one of the most brazen political bribery scandals in American history play out before the country while nobody’s paying attention? In her first original podcast, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow goes back 45 years to dig into a story that got overshadowed in its day. There’s intrigue. Corruption. Envelopes of cash delivered to the White House. It’s a story that’s not well known, but it probably should be. Especially today. Bag Man. A Rachel Maddow podcast from MSNBC. Launching October 30th.

||Clean4 - Episode 4: Turn It Off||After learning that his own Justice Department is investigating his crimes, Vice President Spiro Agnew embarks on a secret, behind-the-scenes effort... to obstruct justice. To use his power inside the White House to interfere with the investigation and shut it down. It’s a scheme that involves President Nixon himself, members of Nixon's inner circle, and it has never been known to the prosecutors investigating the case... even now, 45 years later.||11/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||Clean1 - Episode 1: An Unsettling Secret||He was brash. Politically incorrect. An “outsider” political candidate who rose to the White House, out of nowhere, with a reputation as a “counter-puncher.” But Vice President Spiro Agnew was also something else… an active criminal whose secrets were about to be exposed. What happens when a “counter-puncher” in the White House suddenly sees his political future directly threatened by investigators inside his own Justice Department?||10/29/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Yes, what is really going on in the .white House?
Thank goodness for Rachel and her exemplary strategies to explain this madness to the rest of us so we can understand. I am sure Bagman will be enlightening to us as well and there is a reason she is taking us this way. Go Rachel and Thank you for truly being someone we can trust to tell us the truth!
She is simply the best out there. This will be excellent. Can’t wait!
I have listened to the first 2 episodes - can’t wait for the next! This is an amazing story and the quality is no surprise - Rachel Maddow is the best! I graduated high school in 1968 but am unaware of this story - clearly wasn’t paying attention back then although I was aware of the Watergate saga. My mind is blown by the parallels to what is happening today with the current administration!
