A quick heads up on President’s Day: The Washington Post presents Presidential, a podcast that explores how “each American president reached office, made decisions, handled crises and redefined the role of commander-in-chief.” Naturally, it starts with George Washington. Hear that episode below.
Presidential is hosted by WashPo editor Lillian Cunningham and features Pulitzer Prize-winning historians like David McCullough and journalists like Bob Woodward. Right now you can get all 45 episodes (each about 30–50 minutes long) on iTunes, Soundcloud and Stitcher.
