It's been 50 years since the Watergate scandal broke, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Bob Woodward, one of the journalists who broke the story as a reporter for The Washington Post, will be speaking in San Diego on Sunday, Aug. 14 at 5 p.m.

Woodward, who has written 21 bestselling books including two on former President Donald Trump, will share stories from his experiences covering the last 10 Presidents at the Balboa Theater.

Woodward joined Midday Edition to talk about how the role of the Presidency has changed over time.

"I think it's become more powerful. I think there's a higher concentration of power in the presidency now, made very clear when Trump was President. He was the focus," Woodward said. "Nixon didn't have that kind of power or that level of coverage. And so how that power is used or understood or misunderstood or misused is central to what's going on right now."
