On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020, the citizens of the United States will cast ballots to elect their president, and it feels like the country couldn’t be more divided.
America will have to endure another 58 weeks of shouting, outrage, and the worst sort of political rancor. How has it come to this?
It turns out, it’s almost always been this way. And the 58 weeks we have remaining is just enough time to review the entire history of presidential elections, from the unanimous and inevitable election of George Washington in 1789, to Donald Trump’s surprise electoral victory in 2016. 
From the host of the American History Tellers and American Scandal (Lindsay Graham), this new podcast will explore all 58 presidential elections to discover if there ever was a “good ol’ days,” or if presidential politics have always been played dirty.

History doesn’t repeat itself but it does often rhyme

Helps to provide what the majority of Americans are so lacking in and desperately need, & in a format that they may actually pay attention to (a podcast on their phones): an understanding of political history, even our own.
