When Bill Clinton was first elected, I was not yet two years old, so I was blissfully ignorant of the drama that would engulf the White House during my childhood. But now, with another scandal plagued administration in power in Washington, it's especially revealing to look back on how the Ken Starr investigation unfolded. This particular episode of Slow Burn features an extraordinary interview with Linda Tripp, who betrayed Monica Lewinsky to reveal her affair with Bill Clinton to the world. It's one of the longest and most candid interviews she's ever given about why she did what she did, and it's the cherry on top of an absolutely binge-worthy series.
