Beyond stellar

This is beyond stellar. A great way to understand the person behind the presidency. This shows the Intricacies of people’s path to politics. Thanks for such a fantastic production!

Caution! Will make you binge!

I LOVED both the Making Oprah and Obama series. I binged. Finished both seasons in like two days. And I have a pretty busy life. But I filled every spare moment of my day with these beautifully produced, captivating stories, that kept me wanting to know more.
