Always wanted more

This was a different take on the presidency and contained interesting comparisons between presidents of several generations. However, I always wanted them to go a bit deeper. Often they would mention a tidbit of information and then leave it sitting there. Maybe a time constraint? Still an entertaining and informative podcast.
