"History Personified"

Jul 15, 2016

Do you remember the Secret Service agent that climbs into the back of the car seconds after John Kennedy is shot, as shown in the footage? That was Clint Hill. And that's who I spoke with for this week's epic episode. 

Clint Hill served in the Secret Service under five U.S. Presidents: Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. He's written a book with Lisa McCubbin, entitled, "Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford," in which he discusses his time in the Service. We cover so many seminal historical events from his view, including the Kennedy assassination, the death of MLK, Vietnam, Watergate and Nixon's subsequent resignation, and more. You will also hear his thoughts on the conspiracy theories that still surround the murder of JFK, as well as what happened when Nixon decided to head to the Lincoln Memorial to meet up with war protesters.

Don't miss this amazing conversation with a historical figure and true hero!
