Slow Burn Live

Slate’s podcast miniseries Slow Burn has struck a chord. The story of Watergate, the scandal that brought down a president, feels exciting, timely, and relevant in a way few decades-old political episodes ever will. Since the launch of Episode 1 and its rapid rise to the top of the iTunes charts, the podcast has sparked intriguing conversations about the role of the media, Congress, and the public in watching and eventually addressing the corruption coming from the White House. In his reporting, host Leon Neyfakh talked to both prominent and inconspicuous actors who were involved in uncovering or reporting on Watergate. Now for one night only he’ll lead a conversation with a group of those people and leading political journalists of today to compare notes between the Watergate era and our current political climate.

Join us at the Watergate Hotel for this special wrap-up event featuring chief international affairs columnist at Politico Susan Glasser, comedian and former talk show host Dick Cavett, Nixon biographer Evan Thomas, and the author of Washington Journal: Reporting Watergate and Nixon’s Downfall Elizabeth Drew. We’ll convene for conversation at 6:30 and stick around to discuss over drinks.
