I love Presidential! It's so fun and interesting. I just finished Millard Fillmore but I can't wait for the next one. 🤩 Thanks for all the hard work and keep up the awesomeness😎 Thanks

The Trump (and Biden) episodes should be redone from the point of view at the end of their terms rather than immediately after their election, but before they have been inaugurated. Trump is not even mentioned until about 22 minutes in. All other episodes seen from after their terms of office.

The Washington Post's Presidential podcast explores how each former American president reached office, made decisions, handled crises and redefined the role of commander-in-chief. It was released leading up to up to Election Day 2016, starting with George Washington in week one and ending on week 44 with the president-elect. New special episodes in the countdown to the 2020 presidential election highlight other stories from U.S. presidential history that can help illuminate our current moment. Hosted by Lillian Cunningham, the series features Pulitzer Prize-winning biographers like David McCullough and Washington Post journalists like Bob Woodward. [When you're done, listen to Lillian's other historical podcasts: Constitutional and Moonrise]
