Bonus episode – about the 1976 Walnut Street Theater debate in Philadelphia between Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.  In the middle of Jimmy Carter making a point, his sound went out.  The audio breakdown in the first of the 1976 created a situation where viewers were confused, moderators were perplexed, anchors fended off conspiracy theories and both candidates acted like robots.  It may have told us a lot about debates though.
