    Harry S. Truman

    To say Harry S. Truman's presidency started off with a bang would be an understatement. As president following the death of FDR, Truman had to bring WWII to a close, convert a wartime economy to a peacetime one, handle the rising power of Communism and try to keep FDR's legacy alive. And that's not even all he dealt with!  How did he handle all these things...and where does he rank?

Fun podcast

I have been traveling across the country listening to your podcast. Very enjoyable and entertaining. I like your perspective on the Presidents. If you like history, then you will like this podcast. Keep it up gentlemen!

Ummmm…

These guys lost me when they spent the entire Martin Van Buren episode just calling him Buren. Not to mention completely being oblivious not knowing Benjamin and William Henry Harrison were related.

I like it

As a fellow history enthusiast, I enjoy this podcast. It’s cool to see the interesting presidential facts and nuggets they share. Their bias does show a little bit but hey we all have our own bias in one way or another and I feel like they make some effort to look at the presidents objectively.
