Historians — and, yes, even conspiracy theorists — are eagerly anticipating the impending release of the final batch of documents on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

WBUR's Sharon Brody spoke with Thomas Whalen, a political historian at Boston University, about the documents' scheduled release.

This segment aired on October 22, 2017.
