“I hope you’re recording this, so you get it down,” Bob Woodward says, nary a hint of irony in his voice. Indeed, relying solely on notes for a conversation with the celebrated Washington Post reporter and editor would border on journalistic malpractice, considering the starring role audio tapes have played in Woodward’s 49-year career. At the beginning, of course, was Watergate, the definitive presidential scandal he exposed with colleague Carl Bernstein, culminating in 1974 with what Richard Nixon’s surreptitious microphones caught him saying in the Oval Office.
