Excellent. Interesting. Great way to become more familiar with all of US history, not just the presidents. The insight into the presidents as people, outside of their most famous trait/policy/incident makes this podcast particularly worthwhile. Every episode includes expert historians and/or people with firsthand knowledge of that president.
Such an interesting look at Presidential history! Really worth listening too because the show delves into the personality of so many presidents that we skip over in American History classes.
I'm not usually a fan of history, but this show had me hooked from the first episode!
