The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

President Nixon’s voice-activated taping system captured every word spoken in the Oval Office, Cabinet Room, and other key locations in the White House, and at Camp David.  With 3,700 hours of recordings made between 1971 and 1973, only less than 5 percent of those conversations had ever been transcribed and published, until a massive effort led by Professor Luke Nichter, of Texas A&M University digitized and transcribed the vast majority of these tapes.  Last year we spoke to Professor Nichter about these transcripts which he annotated and edited with Douglas Brinkley in a collection titled The Nixon Tapes:1971-1972, and now he returns to the show to discuss the second and final volume of the transcripts which is titled The Nixon Tapes: 1973 which offers an unprecedented account of one of the most important and controversial presidencies in U.S. history.  You can also follow Luke on twitter.
