    I’m the same age as Stephen – there’s no way he remembers anything specific about Martha Mitchell. During Watergate the only thing I knew was that the hearings pre-empted the Gilligan’s Island reruns I wanted to see.

    Sure sounds like the idea for this show was borrowed from the Slow Burn podcast of a few years ago.

    Hi from the UK. The accent thing is interesting. We have so many regional accents on such a small island and for many years they were considered indicators of lower class. Over the last 20 years or less they have become celebrated for their individualism and unique charm.

    Ive noticed most British when they are joking around trying to sound American, will often do an exaggerated Southern drawl. I guess it’s only fair, since usually at least i theater we’re almost always taught a Cockney accent, versus the many other regional variations.

    Thanks to Martha Mitchell & Helen Thomas. Without them we most likely wouldn’t even know about Watergate.

    I have always like Julia – actually met her once in the early 80s before she was famous. But that southern accent was pitiful for a woman that was raised in GA (I am a South Carolinian). I guess fame does that… Having said that, I do think she is a wonderful actress.
