I am a black male just a few years younger than Obama. Iâve listened to all of the podcasts and enjoyed most of them. You all lost me when David Axlerod stated the obama administration was ârelatively scandal freeâ with no push back from the hostess. Great talking point but nowhere near the truth. Would be nice to have someone relay facts instead of revisionist history. I am one who has tired of politics, politicians, and those who prefer to deal with spin and talking points instead of the truth.
Love this!! Really interesting, really fun to listen to!
I came across this podcast after hearing Lillian being interviewed in the last episode of season two of American History Tellers and Iâm so glad I did. I thought I knew a lot about the presidents but boy was I wrong. Without fail, every single episode gave at least one if not many significant facts about that president that I had never heard before. Also, the structure of each episode was a little different so it never gets monotonous from episode to episode. Listening to every one as I did is a significant undertaking but well worth it! Can wait for the next podcast: Constitutional.
Love the podcast!
This is just a terrific podcastâa combination of history, political science, and good storytelling. Knowing more about the presidents has made a lot of the periods in our history come alive, periods that were more of a blur to me before. Iâve learned about the character of each president, the road to election, and why that particular presidency mattered, and how it led to the subsequent presidency. The one down side is that itâs a bit painful to listen to all this eloquence, decency and dignity given the lack thereof in the White House right nowâthe Gettysburg Address compared to misspelled racist tweetsâbut at least this too shall pass.
I guess I am too old to understand, but this podcast & it's sister podcast Constitutional seem to be devoted to perpetuating the "social justice" agenda. I love the Constitution of The United States and tend to believe that our Presidents and Constitution wioth all their evil have resulted in better lives for more people than anything in history, including the "victims" of our awful "social injustice"
I learned so much and had such a great time listening to this podcast! Informative, inspiring, at times hilarious, and often moving, if you struggle to call up any details on the presidents between Jackson and Lincoln, or between Lincoln and TR, do yourself a favor and listen!
I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. I learned so much each episode. Fair and biased.
I was so excited about this podcast when I heard about it. I have listed to the first three episodes and the biggest problem that I just canât get past is the absolutely terrible sound quality of the interviews. Maybe thatâs just my pet peeve, but itâs something I only notice if itâs really bad. Aside from that, the content could just be so much more interesting than it is. I wanted to like this podcast, but I canât.
Such an entertaining and informative way to learn American history. The host, Lillian Cunningham, a journalist at the Washington Post, has such a lovely voice. Itâs a pleasure to listen to her. And she talks to many other interesting people. Highly recommend this podcast.
