Bag Man Reviews
Extremely well researched account of VP Agnew’s crimes and resignation. Compulsively listenable.
This podcast uncovers the hidden story behind Spiro Agnew's resignation as VP. Very little of this was known and reported at the time.
I am not a person that gets how to get to MSNBC very well, but I thought I would put this this way on here because Rachel really seems to understand that please check everything that comes in for me to check out!! My name is Leslie Harris and I live in Tallahassee Florida. Want you to know who I am so you know you can check up on me! I think it’s time we change the words white nationalist and white supremacist to Hitlerists. This may be the only way to properly describe these kind of people that I know are everywhere and will take care of her if we don’t get rid of the president we have now who is also probably one. That’s all I have to say and I do hope you get this
Bravo. You’ve made history relevant to Canadians and Americans . I didn’t know about Agnews story. You reminded all of us how principled people can stop evil men who corrupt laws and governments. (Our snc-Lavilan 🇨🇦 scandal is a sobering reminder how our parliament is also corruptible ) Your writing and work is a POWERFUL force for good. I pray new heroes will be inspired by them. (We need some too ) Looking forward to more insightful and entertaining podcasts. God bless you and your partner.

I tune into MSNBC to watch Maddow breakdown history into bite size bits for our brains to digest, but this only leaves us hungry for more! Powerful storytelling and a skillful retelling of history.
I love the podcast, and I am a big fan of TRMS! As a Canadian listener you explain things in a way that your neighbours to the north can appreciate, and I feel that you have given me a good understanding of how your American system of government works in a way that no Political Science or history class ever could. Thank you for your honesty and your storytelling skills!
Phenomenal reporting on this little remembered chapter in US political history. The obvious parallels to the current WH scandals and the constitutional questions that can, and probably will, once again arise, are apparent. This type of in depth work is a vital aspect of maintaining a powerful, fact based narrative and clarification of the need for the inherent checks provided by the 4th estate. Bravo!!
Maddow is clearly smart and presents well, but too much repetition (I mean *a lot* of repetition) and too many false cliffhangers. It seems more cable-newsy than a deeply reported, thoughtful podcast. Which is to bad because it really is well reported. Cut out the padding and you still have a 5 star podcast with half the number of episodes.
While the content of this podcast is groundbreaking, the interviews are fascinating and the research is breathtaking, the pacing is agonizingly slow and repetitive. Every nugget of information is squeezed again, and again, and again. Rachel Maddow tells you what she’s about to tell you, tells you what she’s telling you, and then tells you what she’s just told you. Don’t worry about missing an episode because you’ll get a recap of the previous episode, and then you’ll get a teaser for the next episode. Maybe this redundant, repetitive pacing works on a cable tv special, but it’s just annoying in a podcast. Listen on fast forward.
This podcast is an incredible and well researched project. This gives true meaning to the saying “history repeats itself”. Agnew’s voice has tenors of the current Vice President and others in the current administration. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to other opportunities to learn from Rachel research and her talent for weaving a tapestry of rich, complex stories to manageable bites.
Another Canadian Fan. Love Rachel Maddox show and Bagman podcast. You have a unique way of telling a story that makes a dry story/topic extremely interesting. Keep up the great work.
What I love about Rachel’s A block is what I love about this podcast. They are often a deep dive into history. She provides great perspective on the events of the day. Michelle Wolf joked at the correspondents dinner that Maddow’s show gives the entire history of the Byzantine Empire!! Lol. Personally, that is a compliment not a criticism. Rachel takes the time to tell a much more complete story. Well done and keep it up!!
Husband requested I listened, so I did to shut him up. But wow! Binge listened the whole way through!
Be sure you have the time put aside for all 7 episodes. This is a bing worthy podcast!! Thank you Rachael for putting this together.. especially now!!
I've never left a review for a podcast before. If you follow news about Trump's legal issues, the podcast “Bag Man” is the most interesting thing you can listen to. This is a brilliant public service for Americans, and a fascinating deep dive for everyone else.

I’m an expat living in New Zealand and am shocked this isn’t common knowledge like Nixon and Watergate. I had no idea Agnew was such a crook. I also find it ironic how today’s administration seems to be taking plays out of the Agnew playbook and regurgitating them on a daily basis. Excellent series and riveting story.
Who listens to NZ news anymore? This is just way too interesting. Love, as always, Rachel Maddow’s ability to craft a compelling narrative, give us a history lesson and build up to the vital links with current events. Not to be missed.
Wow how popular is this in NZ? I’m also a Kiwi -Rachel you really need to visit - just finding American politics so fascinating- and not always in a good way - right now! All power to the Democrats on Tuesday!
A story of heroes and villain’s. This isn’t a fantasy story, it’s real. Some of the characters you will hear about seem larger and braver than life..... they were. Some of the villain’s unexpected but unfortunately culpable. This is a true lesson about history repeating itself, have we the heroes today? We will see GB
As ever, Rachel is fantastic at portraying political scandal in an engaging way. As a Brit I’m watching the current Trump story unfold, invariably via TRMS and other MSNBC shows.....great presenting style. GB

Bag Man Wiki
A bag (also known regionally as a sack) is a common tool in the form of a non-rigid container. The use of bags predates recorded history, with the earliest bags being no more than lengths of animal skin, cotton, or woven plant fibers, folded up at the edges and secured in that shape with strings of the same material.Despite their simplicity, bags have been fundamental for the development of human civilization, as they allow people to easily collect loose materials such as berries or food grains, and to transport more items than could readily be carried in the hands. The word probably has its origins in the Norse word baggi, from the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European bʰak, but is also comparable to the Welsh baich (load, bundle), and the Greek βάσταγμα (bástagma, load). Cheap disposable paper bags and plastic shopping bags are very common in the retail trade as a convenience for shoppers, and are often supplied by the shop for free or for a small fee. Customers may also take their own shopping bags to use in shops. Although, paper had been used for purposes of wrapping and padding in ancient China since the 2nd century BC, the first use of paper bags (for preserving the flavor of tea) in China came during the later Tang Dynasty (618–907 AD)..
