Jim Jones (Not the one you’re thinking of)

Play episode

This one went to work in the Lyndon Johnson White House at the tender age of 25, became Johnson’s Appointments Secretary (a role now called the Chief of Staff) at 28, and later became a congressman and US Ambassador to Mexico.  Do you know how much time Lyndon Johnson spent in his pajamas?  And what do Mexicans really think about their neighbor to the north?  Find out both, in the first of two episodes with Jim Jones.
