The fifth series of Slow Burn totally lives up to what I've come to expect from the makers. To start with, this series concerns one of the most important and controversial subjects of our time, one that is in dire need of serious discussion. It is moreover thoroughly researched, and lays out a clear timeline, complete with in-depth investigation of the major players and their motives. As with all historical processes, the benefit of hindsight is inevitable, but, as in previous series, the narrator and the team do make a serious effort to bring us back into the mindset at the time, and make the listener question with the choices made. Bottomline: Slow Burn presents podcasting at its best in this fifth installment, and again lives up to the reputation it earned in its first two series. Excellent stuff, deeply engaging, and definitely a must-listen.Slow Burn has produced four series since its inception. The first, about Watergate, was top-notch, as was the second, about the Clinton impeachment. Both great stories that are interesting from a historic perspective, well produced, thoroughly researched, and convincingly narrated. I didn't much care about series 3, about the murders of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G, but I guess it might appeal to other listeners. Series 4 was a good comeback, this time about the rise (and fall) of David Duke.
