The arc of impeachment is long, but it bends toward a fiery resolution. Based on the podcast of the same name, the six-episode Epix docuseries Slow Burn decodes Watergate through stories of the characters most involved. (Any resemblance to current scandals is purely coincidental.)

The original podcast was produced by Slate, hosted by Leon Neyfakh, who’s also the executive producer and narrator of the Epix series. The first season of Neyfakh’s podcast premiered in 2017 and focused on the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of Nixon. It unearthed obscure characters and odd detours that ultimately led to the collapse of his administration.

There was a second season, focused on Clinton’s impeachment, but Epix has not announced any plans to produce that at this time. (Although Clinton may feature in the show’s debut season.) The podcast won multiple awards—and both seasons appeared on end-of-year lists of the best podcasts. A third season, focusing on the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, premiered in October, hosted by Joel Anderson.

Catch Slow Burn when it premieres February 16 on Epix.
