Customer Reviews

Thanks John

The perfect podcast. Dickerson's love of the stories behind the broader politics draws you in.

Slate’s BEST podcast

I find myself at a loss for words to describe just how much I love this podcast. John’s enthusiasm for presidential history flows with every word. If you love politics (I don’t!) or if you love history (I do!) then you will love this podcast.


Can this be expanded to an hour+?!?

Dickerson, unsurprisingly, knocks it out if the park.
