I need the rest!

I'm so hoping this series continues and covers more presidents. It's charming and fun, respectful when appropriate but not afraid to poke fun at the ridiculousness at some of our past leaders. I particularly like the episodes about some of the more obscure figures, like Calvin Coolidge, which make largely forgotten men seem fresh and interesting.

Oh, please continue this show!

This is my favorite audible podcast. It is both humorous and entertaining, and the hosts are wonderful. I am so sad that they didn't do all the presidents, though...is there more to come?

Buyer beware. Leftest hatefulness and low "humor"

The agenda is clear. Ignore historical cultural context, demonize everyone you don't agree with and put them in the worst light possible. Or just make stuff up. Either way.

Biases shine throughout stories

I enjoyed the history.
I detested the throughly unfair comments and innuendo toward conservative presidents.
If you love President Obama or Clinton you will most likely find this book okay.
I voted for President Obama, but he nor any other President was perfect. To find only fault in so many I find reprehensible.
We can all disagree or disagree but a book of this type should be unbiased and still show the humorous side.
I would have taken this book back to a bookstore or returned to Audible.
I cannot recommend this book.

Dreadful and childish

This book is awful. It provides a childish perspective on all levels from evaluation to presentation. It bypasses the crucial aspects defining the coveted Presidents. For example the Clinton sex scandals and abuses of fellow Democrat women is absent.

Let’s teach thing correctly

I was immediately struck by the performers telling anyone who listened that gallstones are removed through the scrotum, which these two call the testicles. How can anyone rely upon the information presented if a detail like that is so badly botched?
If you are home schooling, this is NOT a source you should use.

I'm Addicted to This Podcast!

I am thoroughly enjoying this podcast! This is a new area for me, and I'm finding the facts about presidents I've only heard about fascinating. Alexis Coe and Elliott Kalan are very entertaining, and I enjoy the actors who play the presidents and different characters, too. Can we have all the presidents, please? PLEASE???

Informative and entertaining!

This was great to listen to during the 2020 election. It’s a reminder that we’ve been through tough times before.

Idiot Express

This was stupid. The whole beginning of the first story was full of falsity. Gallstones do not come out of a testicle. Also, it was common for rich men of that time to own slaves, whether it was right or not. I think there has been too much misrepresentations of fact.
