Who Killed JFK?

4.5/5

Critic Rating

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.

Instead of me, your terminally online, radical leftist friend telling you that a confluence of national and international actors including those in our own government murdered Kennedy to maintain the US imperialist death grip on the world, these are two trusted names using their status and platform to move that conversation more into the mainstream. I would have liked it better if the show was a bit more conversational instead of Rob Reiner essentially teaching Soledad O’Brien about the whole thing."

"This podcast is a very pretty house of cards. The show sounds great, a “studio quality” if you will. The ambiance is set as a solid audio noir- the mystery and the conspiracy set against the tapping beats of an old spy movie. The way this podcast circles back episodes later isn’t effective, the script reading is over-worked vocally..."
