Informative but accurate
I always love to listen to American History by Wondery. I learn a lot. However a few times I have heard things that are flat out wrong and it worries me to think I might be learning other things that are flat out wrong.Today in the episode on the 1960 election in Elections- Wicked Game, Graham says Kennedy had a rare condition called Addisons that gave him back pain. Although historians tell us it is true that Kennedy had Addisons and had back pain, Addisons is not rare (incidence 1 in 10,000, not considered rare) and Addisons does not cause back pain. Although you could quibble over the adjective rare, saying Addisons causes back pain is simply incorrect.Not the first time I have heard Graham say something factually incorrect. What else is he saying outside of my expertise that is flat out wrong?
