"The View" is taking an extraordinary look inside the talk show that has been making headlines since Barbara Walters first uttered the phrase, "I had this idea for a show," with its new podcast, "Behind the Table."
In 1997, the legendary Walters set out to create a show that celebrated strong women and their individual views. Twenty-five years later, the Emmy-winning talk show is celebrating its television success with the special podcast series.
