Mickey presents a discussion between political scientist Aaron Good and author David Talbot on the subject of the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy. This conversation is excerpted from a recent interview Aaron Good did for his new podcast series, “American Exception.” Talbot explains why “Bobby was the original conspiracy theorist” about the 1963 assassination while discussing his book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years.
David Talbot founded Salon.com, and is the author of several books, including the bestselling Brothers, the story of John and Robert Kennedy, and The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government. His work can be seen online at The David Talbot Show. Aaron Good holds a doctorate in political science from Temple University, and is the author ofAmerican Exception: Empire and the Deep State, to be released this spring by Skyhorse Publishing. Good is also the creator of the American Exception podcast.
