Podcasts featured in this episode:
.
1. Fiasco: The Iran-Contra scandal was a complex affair with a lot of moving parts involved. But its origins can be traced back to the very first day of Ronald Reagan’s presidency.
.
2. The Gravy Train: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was a harbinger of the populist wave that would sweep the world. But before all that, reporter Robyn Doolittle was shown a video of the mayor smoking crack cocaine — and she couldn’t tell anyone.
.
3. The Cut On Tuesdays: In this clip, comedian Aparna Nancherla talks about her anxiety, and how bringing it to the stage changed everything for her.
.
4. 30 for 30: At first, the Donald Stirling affair seems almost cliche: Stirling, a powerful businessman and owner of the L.A. Clippers, cheats on his wife with a younger woman. But then, that woman released secret recordings of Stirling's shocking racism that shook the NBA.
.
5. How to F--k up an Airport: The Berlin Brandenberg Airport was supposed to be a gleaming, world-class transit hub for the 21st century. This podcast explores how everything went so terribly wrong.
