Villains of History

Cst! I couldn’t believe this was you when I found it one day in my long road trip! I know you through Paul Clay. I’m so thrilled you are thriving and do good at this. I love it and now am a follower.
I do have a request, if you haven’t done a segment on President Andrew Jackson could you do one? I think you’ll find him very Villainess! If you have can I know where to pull up that podcast please.
I’m writing a paper on Indian removal from our Midwest during his reign.
Thank you.
