A history podcast from: Slate Podcasts
Creators: Joel D. Anderson (Host), Leon Neyfakh (Host), Josh Levin (Host) (edit)
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, a white supremacist became an American political phenomenon. David Duke’s rise to power and prominence—his election to the Louisiana legislature, and then his campaigns for the U.S. Senate and the governorship—was an existential crisis for the state and the nation. The fourth season of Slate’s Slow Burn will explore how a Nazi sympathizer and former Klansman fashioned himself into a mainstream figure, and why some voters came to embrace his message. It will also examine how activists, journalists, and ordinary citizens confronted Duke’s candidacy, and what it took to stop him.

Stats: Statistics are produced by Megaphone, Podtrac, Chartable and Podsights to help Slow Burn to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and useragent is used to help calculate this figure. Megaphone is IAB v2 certified.
Tracking and attribution: Megaphone, Chartable and Podsights may attempt to connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example, they may spot that a device that listened to an episode of Slow Burn containing an ad, later visited the website of the advertiser. This form of attribution is used to measure the effectiveness of advertising in Slow Burn.
Dynamic content insertion: Megaphone may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Slow Burn may do this for advertising, or for other forms of content, like news stories.
Slow Burn is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
