President Richard M. Nixon is perhaps best known for the Watergate scandal and becoming the first U.S. president to resign. But how much more is there to that familiar narrative? Kurt Andersen joins Julian Zelizer to discuss his new podcast, Nixon at War, and the behind-the-scenes story of the downfall of America's 37th President. 

Kurt Andersen is a New York Times bestselling author, journalist, and radio host. Currently he’s the host, writer, and co-producer of the new PRX podcast Nixon at War, a seven-episode series that tells the story of America’s 37th President.
