JFK: the Presidency

Professor Nash joins us to discuss the misconceptions and the realities of JFK’s presidency, its successes, its failures, and its legacies. We look specifically at the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, and Civil Rights. And we address the question of whether JFK was a liberal, a conservative, or a mixture of both. And on top of all that, we hear audio from some of Kennedy’s most telling statements, speeches, and press interviews. It’s a fully-rounded episode, Buzzkillers!
