hiSTORY | S1:E13 – Alger Hiss

Glenn explores the rise and fall of Alger Hiss. Once a darling of the left and Franklin Roosevelt’s diplomatic aide at the end of WWII, Hiss’ carefully crafted image began to crumble when he was forced to answer charges from Whittaker Chambers that Hiss was a communist spy. Untangling the truth would involve Richard Nixon, a typewriter and even a pumpkin.
