In part three of the four-part panel series, 1968: The Year That Rocked American Politics, the team behind The Marist College Poll’s podcast, Poll Hub, speaks with Emmy and Peabody Award winning filmmaker Lynn Novick. Novick is the co-producer and co-director with Ken Burns of the 10-part, 18-hour epic documentary, The Vietnam War. In this insightful discussion, Novick addresses the significance of 1968 in the conflict, the idea that there is not just one truth to the war, and how her experience working on this groundbreaking documentary influenced her view of the Vietnam War.
