      <title>S2 Ep. 6: God Mode</title>

The influence of the Christian right within the Republican Party had been growing steadily since the Reagan years. When the Lewinsky story broke, the movement’s leaders pounced on it with righteous vigor.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;In the sixth episode of our series on Clinton’s impeachment, Leon Neyfakh charts the religious right’s campaign against the president and how it failed.&lt;br&gt;This episode is brought to you by the following advertisers:&lt;br&gt;Squarespace, the all-in-one platform to build a beautiful online presence and run your business.

      <title>Season 2 Trailer</title>
      <description>The saga of Bill Clinton’s impeachment is rich with forgotten characters, surprising subplots, and opportunities to reflect on just how much America has changed over the past 20 years. Whether you’re well-versed in the tale of Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, or you’re fuzzy on the details, this season of Slow Burn will take you further into the story than you’ve ever been.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;From its origins in the Whitewater real estate controversy, the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, and the suicide of Vince Foster, Clinton’s near-removal from office was the culmination of a process that remains poorly understood—and continues to reverberate through our political system today.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;While Season I of Slow Burn captured what it was like to live through Watergate, Season II offers a fresh reexamination of the choices, circumstances, and manipulations that nearly destroyed the 42nd president and forever changed the life of a former White House intern.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Learn more about your ad choices.

      <title>Upon Further Review | What If Nixon Had Been Good At Football?</title>
      <description>&lt;em&gt;Slow Burn presents a preview of Upon Further Review, an five-episode miniseries about the greatest what ifs in sports history.&amp;nbsp; &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;/em&gt;Football really mattered to Richard Nixon. Only one problem — he sucked at it. That frustration fueled a persecution complex that would eventually bring down his presidency. How would history be different had Nixon been more than just a tackle dummy on his college football team? Upon Further Review and Slow Burn's Leon Neyfakh explores that question, and other great what ifs from sports history.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Learn more about your ad choices.
