Beschrijving

The Washington Post's Presidential podcast explores how each former American president reached office, made decisions, handled crises and redefined the role of commander-in-chief. It was released leading up to up to Election Day 2016, starting with George Washington in week one and ending on week 44 with the president-elect. New special episodes in the countdown to the 2020 presidential election highlight other stories from U.S. presidential history that can help illuminate our current moment. Hosted by Lillian Cunningham, the series features Pulitzer Prize-winning biographers like David McCullough and Washington Post journalists like Bob Woodward. [When you're done, listen to Lillian's other historical podcasts: Constitutional and Moonrise]

I listened to one episode, then listened to all 45! Now into last episodes of Constitutional. High risk of binch listening. Great storytelling format. Big fan from the Netherlands.

Entertaining and well informed

I wouldn't say all episodes are equally strong, but as a body of work it's most impressive and enjoyable. I found the FDR episode both smart (choice of perspective) and moving, example of a good podcast. Listen!

Interesting, Original and Fun

A very original angle on history is taken. We spend a lot of time discussing the personality and suitability of current politicians, but rarely of those in the further past. For those who have not grown up in the American school system it is also a unique way to familiarise yourself with all the American presidents. Meanwhile, the stories never get dry. Great podcast!
