It’s April 4th. This day in 1970, Richard Nixon’s great White House uniform experiment is coming to an end.
Jody, Niki, and Kellie are joined by Avery Trufelman to talk about Nixon’s ill-fated design for new uniforms, what message he was trying to send — and the very weird afterlife of these uniforms once they were packed up into boxes. It involves Alice Cooper.
Be sure to check out Avery’s excellent Radiotopia series “Articles of Interest.”
