I hope…

Whittaker Chambers This Podcast, the second to last, is the longest one. The Hiss-Chambers Case did not die.

Several people have told me that, of my 38 episodes, this is their favorite. See if you agree. It is all about the question Hiss could never answer: how, if Hiss is innocent, did the 64 Typed Spy Documents get typed on his home typewriter.
