The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Or maybe they don't. 

In light of some of the recent tussles between the Trump White House and the FBI, we dug back into the presidential vaults to go back to a simpler time. A time when the President and the head of the FBI weren't at each others throats and were, in fact, good buddies. 

That's in this weeks episode as we head back to August of 1964 to listen in to President Johnson congratulate FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover on the successful arrest of the murderers of three civil rights workers in Mississippi. Marvel at how NICE they're being to each other! We're not going to spoil the ending, but President Johnson makes a touching request of Hoover that will bring a tear to even the most jaded eye. 

Before that, Harmon and Scott take a stroll through 1960s history, touching on Woody Allen films, the soundtrack to Antonioni's seminal 1966 film Blow Up, James Bond, and Hugh Hefner, before moving on to the UK elections and Larry the Cable Guy.
