In his inimitable style, popularized by his podcast FIASCO, host Leon Neyfakh chronicles the Iran Contra Affair. Beginning in an unexpected place — the story of how the Iranian Hostage Crisis brought down Jimmy Carter — the saga then unfolds with Ronald Reagan, who campaigns on the disaster of Carter’s hostage crisis and then falls prey to a hostage debacle of his own. Spanning multiple continents and time zones, FIASCO dives into one of the least understood of all political scandals and reveals the true scope of Iran Contra for the first time with groundbreaking interviews, rare archival footage and a cinematic style that underscores the complexity of the mess.
