Pretty good

I like how it talks about their lives because that is what is often overlooked in the presidents

Very “light” history

I just finished the Jefferson episode where too much time was spent discussing what it would be like to go on a date with Jefferson and what kind of wine he liked. Really? I am a woman and embarrassed by the poor quality of this episode moderated by a woman.
