With the writing of the Constitution in 1787, the framers set out a young nation’s highest ideals. And ever since, we’ve been fighting over it — what is in it and what was left out. At the heart of these arguments is the story of America.

As a follow-up to the popular Washington Post podcast “Presidential,” reporter Lillian Cunningham returns with this series exploring the Constitution and the people who framed and reframed it — revolutionaries, abolitionists, suffragists, teetotalers, protesters, justices, presidents – in the ongoing struggle to form a more perfect union across a vast and diverse land.

A most delightful podcast!

Thanks, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Constitutional podcast series. Eye-opening and strongly motivating.

I’m now listening to Presidential. So far, Truman is my favorite. He never charged for speeches because that would demean the office of the presidency. Who’d have thought? We need another leader like that.

Thanks Lilian!

I, too, started with Presidential and was hooked (to my surprise). Lilian Cunningham has a great talent for story telling and choosing great people to interview. Her work clearly comes from her heart. Her only agenda, it seems, is to offer a podcast that’s insightful, meaningful and honest. I am looking forward to her next project!

High quality podcast.

The sound quality and editing are very good. The dialog stays on topic and is very informative with out being too dry or pendantic.
Each episode is long to provide good detail and background, again with out droning.
