With the writing of the Constitution in 1787, the framers set out a young nation’s highest ideals. And ever since, we’ve been fighting over it — what is in it and what was left out. At the heart of these arguments is the story of America.

As a follow-up to the popular Washington Post podcast “Presidential,” reporter Lillian Cunningham returns with this series exploring the Constitution and the people who framed and reframed it — revolutionaries, abolitionists, suffragists, teetotalers, protesters, justices, presidents – in the ongoing struggle to form a more perfect union across a vast and diverse land.

Great Podcast

Excellent follow up to the Presidential podcast.

Excellent...

But why the irritating background sounds. You really can’t call it music and I’m finding it off putting.

Already as engaging as Presidential.

I truly enjoyed listening to each episode of Presidential and hoped that the same team would do another project. Lillian really brings this all together with her charmingly, positive, inquisitive attitude. Just two episodes in and already I am hooked. Great work! This should be required listening for everyone who believes they know what America is!
