Classy guy

Fascinating for the background of Obama’s time and vocation in Chicago. A brilliant Everyman who communicated clearly and passionately. Still does. Great research and interviews in this podcast. I have no interest in Oprah.

Simply Amazing

This podcast is simply amazing. It goes into wonderful detail about the life and career of Obama and presents it in a way that makes it extremely enjoyable to listen to. The fact that it has so many interviews makes it feel very authentic and hearing footage alongside the recollections of Obama's closest allies is nothing short of inspiring.
