Customer Reviews

Seriously need balance and honesty...

I realize that it’s difficult in this day and age, but you lost me after reviewing the Obama and trump episodes. I felt fine about the non-critical nature of the trump episode from 3 people that didn’t appear to be fans of this president, which I was fine with. I think that they did a very respectable job of containing any seething hatred that you might see in the news or from White House correspondents of the MSM these days. Now when I reviewed the summary of the Obama episode, you completely lost me and support for anything that you put out. Obama’s episode is hosted by David axelrod(Obama appointee/cabinet member) and David Naraniss(an employee of Obama who authored his biography) lol... do you really feel the balance here?? You really don’t understand why the public is so fed up with the MSM and politicians in general, do you??

Excellent podcast

Each and every episode taught me something that I did not know and more importantly, made me ask questions. Next task, take on the all the Vice President's.

Thanks for stimulating my brain and teaching me about my country.

I’m not usually a fan of presidential history...

...But I have really enjoyed this podcast Because it brought the presidents choose life as regular human beings. I wish the Washington Post would do a companion series on first ladies.
