It’s October 22nd. On this day in 1955, President Eisenhower was recovering from a serious heart attack the month before.
Jody and Niki are joined by William Hitchcock of UVA to discuss the incident and how a president’s inner circle handles the press and questions of succession when the Commander In Chief is sick.
Will Hitchcock’s new podcast is called “Democracy In Danger.”
