About Slow Burn

Slate’s Slow Burn is a podcast that helps capture what it felt to live through the most pivotal political moments in recent history, from the people who went through it themselves. After a successful first season that focused on the infamous Watergate Scandal, this year, host Leon Neyfakh tackled a scandal that is fresh in the minds of many Americans: the Clinton Impeachment of the 90’s. With such guests like Dan Savage, Wesley Morris, and Clara Jeffery, Slow Burn allows prominent figures in journalism and politics to offer insight into their experience. More than just a history podcast, Slow Burn ties the present moment to recent history to create a unique tapestry that helps deepen our understanding of the political world.
