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.

Excellent History Podcast

I’ve been recommending this to anyone who will listen to me! I geek out for anything history related but I was specifically looking for history and information on the American constitution. This podcast was so great, it breaks down the constitution and brings in relatable stories and constitutional law. If you are an average Jane like me and looking for a detailed, interesting, and relatable podcast you’ll love this. Lillian Cunningham did and excellent job with this podcast, as well as her other podcast ‘Presidential’ (if you haven’t listened to that one I highly recommend it as well!) and I will be keeping an eye out and listening to any future podcasts she does.

Breathtakingly ,

Wonderfully presented

and highly educational.
