In the 1970s, a pair of very different men fought to define Linda Taylor’s image. For presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, Taylor epitomized the brokenness of the federal bureaucracy and the broader trend of poor people getting rich off the public dime.

This podcast is based on Josh Levin’s new book, The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth.
