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.

Great program

Thoroughly enjoyed this program. Learned a lot about the President and the people who guided him along the way. Carol Ann Harwell was amazing. She was that “ keep it real” voice that could only speak to a future president in a manner that would sink in and make him better.

I listened to this the same weekend as reading Michelle’s memoir - wonderful.
