On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020, the citizens of the United States will cast ballots to elect their president, and it feels like the country couldn’t be more divided.
America will have to endure another 58 weeks of shouting, outrage, and the worst sort of political rancor. How has it come to this?
It turns out, it’s almost always been this way. And the 58 weeks we have remaining is just enough time to review the entire history of presidential elections, from the unanimous and inevitable election of George Washington in 1789, to Donald Trump’s surprise electoral victory in 2016. 
From the host of the American History Tellers and American Scandal (Lindsay Graham), this new podcast will explore all 58 presidential elections to discover if there ever was a “good ol’ days,” or if presidential politics have always been played dirty.

Awesome

This is one of the best history podcasts out there. Lindsay Graham (not the Senator) is a talented podcaster who entertains and informs with this show. Great content and amazing music. 👌🏻👍🏻🇺🇸

Fantastic listening for the whole family!

My kids have been obsessed with early American history since falling in love with the musical “Hamilton” and this podcast has helped me keep them interested in learning more! These episodes are well researched and very interesting. Can’t wait for more!!!!

Thomas Jefferson abused Sally Hemings

I really enjoy all of Lindsay Graham’s podcasts. The are informative and detailed and well told. However, I was disappointed to hear Mr. Graham refer a “relationship” between Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. It was not a relationship. It was abuse. It was rape. She was was his property in his eyes. The time to romanticize this part of history has come to an end. I hope to hear a correction on a subsequent episode.
