No conversation about Abraham Lincoln would be complete without talking about Hannibal Hamlin!

______

Unless you’re from Maine, you probably didn’t hear too much in your history class about Abraham Lincoln’s first Vice President. Hannibal Hamlin came from a distinguished New England family and stood firm against the expansion of slavery in the territories. It only made sense for a Midwestern Republican like Lincoln to join forces with a New Englander (after all, the Republicans weren’t going to get very much support from the South in 1860). And, what caused him not to serve as Lincoln’s running mate four years later?

So, why don’t we hear very much about Hamlin? After all, he only missed the Presidency by a few weeks.

In this episode we discuss:

 *Hamlin’s New England Upbringing

*His Kids Were Cousins (Yeah, it’s totally legit, too)

*His Role in Maine Politics

*The Example He Sought to Set by Going to War While He Was Vice President

We're in the middle of talking about Abraham Lincoln, so here is this episode about the Lincoln/Douglas debates!

In this episode we finally talk about what you want to hear - the Lincoln/Douglass debates!

Stephen Douglas was a man who constantly found himself walking a very thing line on almost every subject he touched. If he said one thing he would anger one set of people - but if he said the opposite, someone else would be upset instead!

Join us in this episode as we again talk about Stephen Douglas!

We're talking about Lincoln, and you can't talk about Lincoln without talking about Douglas! Check out this episode leading up to the Lincoln Douglas debates.

The Douglas/Lincoln debates are some of the most famous debates in all of American history! But before he debated Lincoln, Stephen Douglas had built quite the resume on his own.

A semi-national leader for the Democrats as a Senator and statesmen, Stephen Douglas is a truly interesting character in our past. He was a wealthy landowner and was hugely influential on many fronts.

Wow. We've been dreading doing this episode. The Pierce administration was not a fun one, and Jane was not a terribly happy person. The addition of multiple tragedies to her life didn't make things any better.

Margaret Taylor wasn't a big fan of the idea of her husband continuing on in public service. Rumor has it she even prayed that he would lose the election! That's just part of the reason why their daughter stepped in to take on the role.

Sarah was a great entertainer and had a knack for making people like her - but she was a TON different than the previous First Lady, Julia Tyler.

Julia was quite a bit younger than John Tyler and thought he was kind of dull the first time that he proposed. He kept trying and she became the first lady!

In another crazy turn of events, a President loses his wife and then has another woman act as First Lady! This one has a twist though - he has a total of three acting First Ladies (and some may even say 4).

For as rough of a guy as Andy Jack was, it seems like he really cared about his wife, Rachel. She had a hard life, and a tragic end.

We're going to talk about her, as well as the ladies who took on the mantle of First Lady during Andy Jack's Presidency.

Ever think to yourself, "I'd really like to hear an episode all about how two women married their third cousins and were also closely related to the President of the United States?" We've got just the episode for you!

Martha and Martha were never quite First Ladies of the United States, but we figure they get an honorable mention since one was the wife of a President and the other acted as a First Lady at times.

As we continue our overview of the First Ladies we take a look at Abigail Adams! Abigail had perhaps more influence on our presidents than any other First Lady as she was not only the wife of John Adams, but also the mother of John Quincy Adams! 

Join us as we discuss Abigail Adams as she fulfilled her role of First Lady.

Jul 20, 2017

It's been a long time coming and it's finally here! We'll be spending some time talking about the wives of our presidents and all the important things that they did.

First up, Martha Washington! Martha was a successful woman in her own right before she ever met George or even her first husband. Take a listen to this episode as we discuss the life of America's first First Lady!

Breckinridge lead a pretty interesting life both before AND after his stint as Vice President. In this episode we discuss how he left the Vice Presidency and became a Senator, then got kicked out of the country and went to vacation in Pompeii - okay... it didn't happen exactly like that, but you'll see!

Can you believe he married his cousin's kid? Yeah, it wasn't terribly uncommon in those days - but it certainly sounds weird now!

John C. Calhoun lead an interesting life, did a lot of stuff (both positive and negative), and had quite the personality which irritated many people.

Ever heard of Daniel D. Tompkins? Yeah... neither have many other people. So we're here to tell you about him! This dude was flush with cash and didn't have a problem loaning it to the government - though he did have a bit of a problem with getting it back. We talk about that and - oh yeah - the fact that he was a Vice President, which we almost didn't even know!

In this week's episode we're talking about James Buchanan!

Buchanan was quite involved with law and politics from a very young age and... we know this will come as a surprise... even started his career studying law!

Fun fact... did you know that James Buchanan is the only President with military experience that was never an officer? It's true!

Who is James K. Polk? Yeah... we know. No one talks about him! Often ranked as one of the most effective presidents and yet largely unknown. We're trying to correct that, so in this episode we discuss...

  • a brief stint in the military,
  • an early start to a political career,
  • his election to the US House of Representatives,
  • a successful run for Speaker of the House,
  • Polk's becomes governor,
  • and more!

We'll pick it up from there in the next episode!

The Salem Witch Trials weren't really about witchcraft as much as interpersonal conflict. While mass hysteria disguised as witchcraft had reached many parts of the world, we hear about Salem the most often.

We're reading and discussing a book by the name of The Fever of 1721. If you want to read along with us, pick it up!

Today we talk about everyone's favorite topic... gerrymandering! Okay, maybe it sounds a bit more like a guy you knew back in high school than a political maneuver - so we're going to tell you how it works.

In this episode we're going to tell you...

  • how it can sometimes actually be a good thing,
  • if the Supreme Court has ever issued an opinion on it,
  • and much more!

In this supplemental episode, we’re talking to Jen Briney, host of Congressional Dish!

 

Jen has a degree from Loyola Marymount University and is the host of Congressional Dish. In December of 2010, Jen was watching C-SPAN when she realized that a congressman had attached an amendment to a government funding bill that had nothing to do with the bill itself! After that, she started researching and then podcasting - and the rest is history.

Check out Congressional Dish by visiting http://www.congressionaldish.com and be sure to follow Jen on Twitter @JenBriney and @CongressDish.

In this episode we talk about the life of Andrew Johnson from his first run for President in 1824 and on to his time in the White House in 1828.

Andrew Jackson makes a run for the Presidency in 1824, gets the most popular votes, but not a majority. So, the House of Representatives votes in John Quincy Adams (with a little help from Henry Clay). The next three-and-a-half years, Andy Jack sets his sight on winning. 

He does win in 1828–big time. But not without a cost. During the campaign his wife, Rachel, was accused of bigamy. She had been previously been married and it was later found out that her divorce had not yet been finalized when she married Jackson. 

Jackson claimed that the stress from the campaign caused her death soon after the election (and before his inauguration). The president-elect blamed Henry Clay and the Adams campaign for her demise. He was quoted as saying, "I can and do forgive all my enemies. But those vile wretches who have slandered her must look to God for mercy."

We also discuss the mixed legacy of Andrew Johnson . . .

*The Trail of Tears

*His view of a national bank

*His government reforms

John Quincy Adams was quite the guy. Before he was President, he traveled all over Europe–he had the ultimate homeschool experience. 

By the time he was 20, Q knew several languages, had translated the New Testament, and had a prolific blog (well, he had a diary). 

While he might have wished to stay home, his dad - John Adam - encouraged him to take his experience on the road. George Washington appointed him as Minister to the Netherlands at the age of 26. 

Q served as James Monroe's Secretary of State and wrote the document that we now know as the Monroe Doctrine. 

All that to say . . .If there was a Foreign Affairs All Star team from the early 1800s, The Q would be batting clean-up.

One of the biggest perks about winning a Presidential election is that you don't have to sit next to that guy who takes his shoes off on the plane anymore.

In this episode we talk about . . .

*The history of the aircraft US Presidents fly in.

*If your name is "Roosevelt" and you're the President, you're going to fly!

*How they came up with the name "Air Force One."

*Where can you go aboard an Air Force One today.

*How much does it cost to operate the Chief Executive's airplane? 

*Who gets to fly on Air Force One (and what happens if they put you in the back).

*Do Presidents ever still fly commercial aircraft?

*Why you don't want to mess around with this plane.

In this episode we finally talk about what you want to hear - the Lincoln/Douglass debates!

Stephen Douglas was a man who constantly found himself walking a very thing line on almost every subject he touched. If he said one thing he would anger one set of people - but if he said the opposite, someone else would be upset instead!

Join us in this episode as we again talk about Stephen Douglas!

The Douglas/Lincoln debates are some of the most famous debates in all of American history! But before he debated Lincoln, Stephen Douglas had built quite the resume on his own.

A semi-national leader for the Democrats as a Senator and statesmen, Stephen Douglas is a truly interesting character in our past. He was a wealthy landowner and was hugely influential on many fronts.

James Monroe is one of the only guys in history who was able to win two elections in a row with almost no competition at all. He even ran completely unopposed in his second attempt!

Monroe not only persevered through a tough time in our history during the War of 1812 - he did it with one of the most bipartisan cabinets ever! While we don't agree with all of his policies and beliefs, you can't deny that Monroe had a wonderful effect on the United States of America.

James Monroe is an easy president to miss. He's not a super controversial figure, but he's also not a guy who just lets people walk all over him. In this episode we discuss the early life of the last Founding Father to be the leader of our country, as well as the last president to have fought during the Revolutionary War. 

Ambassador to France, Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Delegate to the Virginia House, United States Senator and Governor of Virginia are just a few of Monroe's many job titles that we discuss in this episode!

On the last episode we talked about how the Bill of Rights and subsequently the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution came about. This time around we talk about each one of those 10 in a bit more depth.

A big thank you to our boy James Madison who fought to make it all happen.

Way back before the Bill of Rights was even written, the writers of the Constitution knew there was going to be one! These 10 Amendments to our governing document lead the way through troubled times and precarious situations on a regular basis.

However, we don't go very deep in to what the actual amendments within the Bill of Rights entail during this episode. That's next time. Instead, we talk about the history of, necessity for, and influencers behind the nation's 10 most popular amendments.

In this episode you’ll hear about Madison’s time as President and some of the challenges he faced such as:

*getting his cabinet nominees approved
*paying for a war despite not wanting a national bank
*not having Thomas Jefferson around

We also talk about his rockstar wife, Dolley, and how she managed to keep things going in spite of some of the men in her life after James’ time in office.

James Madison is often overlooked - and no, that's not a short joke. You may know him as our fourth president, but Madison accomplished a tremendous amount of good for the well-being of our new country here in the USA aside from the office of the presidency. From being the Father of the Constitution and Bill of Rights to being an influential delegate in foreign affairs, we think James Madison deserves his very own episode.

Matthew Lyon is definitely one of the most interesting Congressmen we've ever had here in the United States of America! The guy lived multiple lives and basically needed all of them with all the crazy antics he pulled. Give it up for our favorite brawler in Congress... Matthew Lyon!

The Alien and Sedition Acts are something we've talked all around but never dove into! Some people might think it's just one big law. Instead, it's four different laws combined into a type of government approved speech suppression with a side of nationalism thrown in. If you're in the mood for a good head scratcher, this is the episode for you!

Often mocked, but immensely valuable, is the office of the Vice President. It's true, the biggest job of the VP may be being the President of the Senate (which is essentially just breaking ties) but the VP is a super important position with a very interesting past.

In case you're wondering... no, we didn't make it the whole way through without a Nicholas Cage reference.

It's here! We talk all around the Declaration of Independence and even discuss the men who wrote it. However, we've never tackled the subject of the Declaration itself! Join us in this episode as we discuss the ins and outs of one of the most recognizable documents in the country!

We all know that Thomas Jefferson (or, as we like to call him, TJ) was the president of the United States, right? Well he also lived quite the interesting life before he got to the highest office in the land as well! This episode is all about TJ in his early years up until the man earned himself a chapter in all of our history books.

Daniel Sickles was really influential in American History, and there's a pretty good chance you've never even heard of him. We hadn't even heard of him until just recently and we thought he was pretty interesting.

He shot Francis Scott Key's son. He should have been court-martialed. He disobeyed direct military orders. He kept his severed leg preserved. He served in public office. And he also convinced the USA to preserve Gettysburg.

What an interesting guy...

If you’re going to talk about the First Party System, you definitely have to talk about the Jay Treaty. So that’s what we’re going to do!

 

Did it ever occur to you that not everything was all wrapped up nicely with a bow after the Battle of Yorktown? Well it wasn’t! There’s still lots of stuff to be taken care of.

 

In this episode we talk all about the origins of the Two Party System and the Jay Treaty.

One of the most important things that George Washington every wrote was the letter announcing that he would be leaving the office of the Presidency. Many things he said and thought in his letter can apply today as much today as they did the day he wrote them. 

Come along with us as we discuss the farewell address of George Washington!

Though John Adams had a very active early life and did many things to help shape our country, we haven't talked much about his impact as Vice President and President of the United State! Well, fear not. We're going to do just that.

In this episode you will hear about Adams' ascent to the highest political offices in the land (after he helped create them) and learn all about his struggles with having the "boring" job of Vice President.

Even though we like to pick on him a lot and even call him a funny nickname quite a bit (how can you not say "His Rotundity" anyway?) John Adams had a profound impact on our country. 

In this episode we talk about the early life and influence of John Adams, his schooling, career, and the different ways in which he served the United States in it's infancy.

Listen in for much more!

Not only did he have his own wealth before becoming president, but his marriage to Martha also helped sure up his fortune. Before the revolution he was a surveyor and a military man.

Horace Greeley was a major influencer in the political scene of the late 1800s. However, most of us have never even heard of him!

We're (basically) done with primary debate season and are nearly to the general election debates here in 2016. So... we thought it would be a great idea to talk about the history of debates, how they work and who gets to be involved!

In addition, we're also celebrating our ONE YEAR anniversary as well as 100,000 downloads. Thanks, everyone!

Alexander Hamilton is one of our favorite guys to talk about... mostly because we've been calling him 'The Wizard of Oz' for about a year!

However, we thought it was about time we call him by his real name and give him the episode he deserves... plus we can't get this dang musical about him out of our head!

Come along with us as we talk about the one guy who arguably had the most influence in presidential elections while never running in one!
