Good episode? Give it some love!
Daniel Gullotta has more degrees than we have space in which to write, so we’ll just jump to his current undertaking: a PhD in Religious history at Stanford. Of course, with that background, maybe Greg should’ve anticipated that their discussion on the Age of Jackson would take a fascinating turn toward the Divine! We still have plenty of straight up political history--Greg and Daniel talk about the elections of 1824 and 1828, the “Corrupt Bargain,” and so on--but we also get a deeper dive on Mormonism’s founder Joseph Smith running for US President, as well as a look at why American Jews were by and large fans of President Andrew Jackson. And if you’re really digging this era, be sure to check out Danie’s excellent and popular podcast: “The Age of Jackson.”
