I really love this app
This app has so many great speeches in their entirety that are just fascinating to listen to. It's one thing to read these speeches devoid of the context of a person's cadence, voice, and forcefulness. This app allows for you to hear a lot of what makes great orators special. Listening to Truman repeat over and over that Greece has no funds with which to continue supporting itself thanks to the Germans is even a little bit heartbreaking and it happened years ago.
The audio quality is what it is going to be based on the recordings of the time, but none are so obfuscated by the inherent differences in microphones and recording devices of the time that you cannot hear or understand the speeches as they are given. I use this when driving or at work. Great app.
