Done at ep 1

I wanted to like this, but I couldn’t even finish the first episode; I quit at 36:12. How did this get past the editing room? Everyone needs a sip of water & some pep in their step. Is the narrator Erin, from The Office? I don’t mean Ellie Kemper, I mean Erin. Each p a u s e felt like an eternity and I’m pretty sure the first guy interviewed was asleep. The next dude made Washington out to sound like he WAS Captain America and until they told us they were going to take the metro for a 10 minute ride, including sound effects, I thought he was the low point. The 2 stars are for the historian. Get her a podcast; she’s engaging as he|l.

Balanced

Many people left reviews saying this podcast is too Liberal. I am a republican and I though she did a wonderful job keeping her judgements of the presidents balanced. Looking back over history there are good and bad things that happened with almost every administration and she laid that out pretty well. Great podcast!
