A president bound for greatness. A ruinous Vietnam war. How did Lyndon Johnson lose his way? LBJ’s War is a documentary in oral history form, constructed from secretly taped White House phone calls and rare archival interviews with those who were there when this history was being made, and who had a hand in its making. Major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. WE RECOMMEND LISTENING IN ORDER, STARTING WITH EPISODE 1.

Great Podcast and Great Topic

I've just discovered the "LBJ's War" podcast and I must say I've really been enjoying this one. I haven't come across any podcast like it. I was a history major in college and it's great to refresh and learn more while I'm working or even driving. I can't wait for the next episode and hope they produce more series in the future if this one is successful.

Great voice, wonderful content

Really stoked to have found this podcast- the material is fascinating and the production quality is on point (but better than on point with Tom Ashbrook- like really On Point). Good work PRI- Also, love the music- I'll have to look up this Elori Kramer.

Wonderful Perspective

In this era of the War in Afghanistan becoming America's longest war, I appreciate this insight into LBJ's perspective on an equally controversial war. It is important to understand our leaders' and the pressures they face. Wonderful conversation to have.
