About The Show
The United States won the cold war against the Russians through political warfare. But in the 21st century, Russia is winning the battle. Our democracy is under attack. America is edging toward autocracy under the leadership of a president that Russian spies helped elect. Pulitzer Prize-winning and NYT best-selling author Tim Weiner tells the story of how we got here. Once triumphant, American democracy now teeters at a terrible precipice; over ten episodes of this documentary podcast franchise, season one of WHIRLWIND provides a penetrating look at the decisions, mistakes, and mischief that led us to this point. In partnership with Cadence13, Jigsaw Productions and a production of Prologue Projects.
