Product Overview

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.

Part 3 of a three-part audio series written and narrated by Jim Weiss, “Electoral Apocalypses: How America Survived Three Elections Even More Divisive Than 2016” 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.
