    31.2 Herbert Hoover

    31.2 Herbert Hoover

    As the 2020 presidential race unfolds while we record, Jamie and I attempt to stay focussed and talk about just how well Hoover managed the great depression. Spoiler: It does not go well. He is a 1 term president.

    31.1 Herbert Hoover

    31.1 Herbert Hoover

    Herbert Hoover lives an action packed life full of contradictions. Join us as we try and figure out who this man is. A robber Barron? A great humanitarian? A populist? A progressive? A massive racist? And also, will he be ready for the upcoming great crash?

    Release Schedule update

    Release Schedule update

    UPDATE: We are changing how we release our episodes. It's getting harder and harder to keep on top of the current weekly release, and it's only going to get harder as we get closer to modern times in the President series. Therefore we are going to use the following release schedule.


     


    Romans: No change. Two-weekly releases. One emperor per episode.


     


    Presidents: Instead of- Ep.1, Ep.2, Ep.1, Ep.2 etc, there will now be a gap between presidents to give me more time to research. So it will be Ep.1, Ep.2, No Ep, Ep.1, Ep.2, No Ep, etc.


     


    Hope you all understand. I didn't want to do this, but the workload is starting to get unmanageable, and I'd rather release slower than rushing the research and missing things/making mistakes. Cheers.

    30.2 Calvin Coolidge

    30.2 Calvin Coolidge

    We found it hard to figure out Coolidge last episode, but maybe this episode will clear things up. Find out what he got up to as president! Oh, and there is a vibrating horse and a rampaging bear in it.

Unanimous!

EveryEpisode of Totalus Rankium I’ve listened to is really good I don’t have a favorite because all of them are really good! (P. S. I really like you’re a Roman Emperors podcast too.)

Fantastic

I love hearing an unbiased, and fresh look at American presidents. The antics and banter make each episode fun and easy to get through. Fell off with listening, so now I find myself binge listening. Recommend going back and listening to Buchannon, crazy scary the similarities to the current administration. Anxiously awaiting the specials too: Benedict Arnold, Henry Clay, etc
