JFK

I love this podcast so much. Very informative. The episodes are just the right length. I’m hoping there’s a future episode on JFK’s humor.

Too many diversions from JFK Story

I really enjoyed the PT-109 podcast (first one) and for the most part, enjoyed the real history (underlined) and stories behind JFK ... but when they proceeded into ramblings of Barack Obama and on and on about his presidency and how wonderful he was (he was NO JFK), and climate change and LGBTQ issues .... it was no longer about JFK, it was just another attack avenue on republicans ... I had to cut it off. If you are going to be on the history of JFK, stick to the history of JFK ... the good, the bad and the ugly.
