In 1972, Richard Nixon was reelected as the 37th president in one of the greatest landslides in American history. Nixon had reached the pinnacle of his career yet this record breaking campaign had also planted the seeds of his spectacular downfall. That June, a group of operatives were arrested after a burglary into the Democratic National Headquarters at the Watergate Hotel. In time, it was revealed that these operatives were connected to Nixon's reelection campaign and that Nixon had personally conspired to cover up the entire affair. The Watergate scandal would consume Nixon's second term, and in the end he would resign in disgrace. In this episode, we interview Michael Dobbs, author of the new book King Richard: Nixon and Watergate--An American Tragedy.
