This episode features a clip from Episode 5: 1933-1939 of Ken Burns' phenomenal The Roosevelt’s: An Intimate Portrait on PBS. In the clip they enumerate just a handful of FDR's accomplishments from the beginning of his first of four elected terms. At the end he warns people against being taken in by timid people afraid of progress who will call his actions all sorts of silly names, all which still sound quite familiar today. I also played a clip (in, alas, poor audio quality) of one of my favorite FDR quotes, where he details who hates him, and then welcomes their hatred.
