    Off-Season Bonus - Pre-Game: Andrew Johnson w/Cullen

    Off-Season Bonus - Pre-Game: Andrew Johnson w/Cullen

    Who is the worst president? Most would say Andy Johnson, and I can't say that I disagree. 

    Hello Great Minds! It's another Tuesday in the Off-Season, and that means it is time for more Patreon/Bonus content.  Here's an oldie/shortie, but a goodie! 

    Check out this "Pre-Game" episode from our top tier of Patreon, where Cullen and I had a quick chat about Reconstruction, as well as Andrew Johnson's "ass-holishness."  I won't lie, I had to cut out about 5 minutes of political ranting on both our parts, but you can head on over to our Patreon for accesso the full chat!

Great podcast!

This is a super fun way to learn history while enjoying a drink!

The Best Way To Imbibe History

Surely I wouldn’t advocate high school history classes taught with cocktails and salty language.

But maybe I would.

Even if you’re not a history nerd, this podcast is definitely worth a listen. Short enough episodes for a car ride and NEVER boring, you will learn things you never knew—about great historical figures and drinks.

Highly recommend!
