Episode 9: A Brush with Death

| E:Episode 9: A Brush With Death

By 1966, Jackie wasn’t ON the A-list— she WAS the A-list. But it wasn’t all fun and games: between public scandal over “The Death of a President” and shifting national priorities during the Vietnam War, Jackie became more of a tabloid celebrity than an immaculate national icon. But that didn’t stop her from having fun— maybe even too much.

This podcast is a companion to Paul Brandus's new book, "Jackie: Her Transformation from First Lady to Jackie O," now available in stores and online.
