In this episode you’ll hear about Madison’s time as President and some of the challenges he faced such as:

*getting his cabinet nominees approved
*paying for a war despite not wanting a national bank
*not having Thomas Jefferson around

We also talk about his rockstar wife, Dolley, and how she managed to keep things going in spite of some of the men in her life after James’ time in office. ___________________________ We recorded an audiobook!
