"In Plain Sight: Lady Bird Johnson" presents a surprising and original portrait of Lady Bird Johnson, told in the former first lady's own words -- from over 123 hours of her White House audio diaries, heard here largely for the first time ever. It recasts Lady Bird's role in the Johnson White House as her husband's closest advisor and most trusted political partner and provides history-making revelations about LBJ's time in office. It's the story of how one vastly underestimated woman navigated the power, politics and polarization of her era to become one of the most influential members of the Johnson administration... even if we never knew it. An eight-part series from ABC Audio & Best Case Studios. Hosted by New York Times bestselling author Julia Sweig.

This was a well done podcast. Exceptional use of recordings and new reels. really enjoyed this as a whole.
Very well done. Timely reminder of how long the struggle of the less fortunate have been yelling to be heard.
I struggle to hear and understand her over the music on this episode.
Excellent podcast with tons of information about a woman that appears to have been largely overlooked/forgotten over the course of history. Brilliantly edited and pieced together also. This was a very pleasant discovery.
Fascinating insight into #LadyBird Johnson in her own words from never before heard before audio of her inner most thoughts.
