My favourite podcast

Rob and Jamie do a fantastic job in making US presidential biography fun, funny and absorbing. This has become my favourite podcast, and I’ve turned into a real fanboy of them. Wonderful stuff, and everyone should listen to this! (And their Roman emperors podcast as well)

Nostradamus' lovechild ,

A firm favourite (US = favourite)

One of my favourite* podcasts. Combines the concept of Top Trumps** with a very well-researched but humorous*** walk through US history presented by two Brits. Definitely worth a listen if you're interested in US Presidents.
* US = "favorite"
** not that Rob and Jamie would say that as that may give rise to copyright issues
*** UK also = "humorous" despite using "humour" rather than "humor"

Loved it- it’s the best!!!!

A brilliant, funny podcast on the POTUS. I started this podcast with Rob and Jamie in October and they’ve become a welcome addition to my mundane lockdown life. Highly recommend them to everyone. Will miss them when it’s over but will def try out the Roman series.
