Attendees should expect a warm atmosphere on a suddenly very relevant topic. There will be drinks and snacks! BYOB if you'd like!
I discovered Leon Neyfakh's podcast a few months ago and was amazed not only on how intriguing and educational the content was, but how relevant Watergate and the hidden stories behind it are to today's never-ending political headlines.
