Product Description

“The whole world is watching!” demonstrators chanted in 1968, as police attacked them in front of television cameras. In the third and final episode of the Electoral Apocalypses audio series, Jim Weiss takes you through the whirlwind events of that turbulent year, whose effects still shape our politics today.

This three-part audio series sheds light on the stormy present by exploring the turbulent past. Through the surprising tales of three past elections, master storyteller Jim Weiss explores the flexibility of America’s democratic system, and the resilience of its people.

These memorable episodes make ideal listening for voters (and voters-to-be), lovers of history, and all concerned citizens.

Electoral Apocalypses, Episode 3: The Whole World Is Watching: Riots, Radicals, and the Election of 1968

Peaceful demonstrations and cities on fire from riots; noble words cut short as assassins’ bullets strike down Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy; the Vietnam war overseas causing angry dissent and generational conflict back home; a stunning realignment of a century of U.S. politics; a political convention exploding into police brutality and rioting in Chicago, as millions of viewers watch it “live” on their television screens; and some of the most brilliant, but self-conflicted, leaders in U.S. history wrestling with personal ambition and cultural chaos.

This is the story of the election that, more than any other, set today’s political conditions in the U.S.A.
