Perfect Way to Start My Day

These brief, crisp, daily visits to historical events are the perfect way to start my day. I grab the dog, start our walk, and tune in to the great Jon Meacham. And most days, I’ll do additional research on the days subject when I return home. Please come back! This hiatus has gone on too long!

Can you say Meecham once more! ,

Great show, wish he would stop saying. meecham

Great show. Annoying how much mentions his names. Comes off as extremely arrogant. Otherwise, well done!
