U.S. Presidents Podcast

On this Presidents Day celebrating Washington's Birthday as well as honoring other Presidents of the United States, we thought it fitting to feature our U.S. Presidents Podcast. This podcast features biographies of some of the most renowned American presidents from the past. It is unique in that we have drawn our biographies from the free web-based encyclopedia Wikipedia. To start off the podcast we chose to feature four of the most highly ranked presidents according to historians, political scientists, and popular opinion polls. This podcast currently features the complete Wikipedia entries for:

  • George Washington
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt

    This Presidents Day learn about great presidents in American history.

    Great Speeches Of The 20th Century, Volume 1: The Political Arena

    Before radio, the only way a candidate could get his message across to the voters was by criss-crossing the country and speaking directly to the people. The events were usually covered by the local newspapers, but there was no such thing as a paid political broadcast, no convenient way to get the significance out to 40 or 50 million people in one evening. Almost as soon as the ability to record the human voice for posterity was developed, recordings were recognized as a great political tool. Presidential candidates and other political figures jumped on the bandwagon and soon speeches were available to anyone with 75 cents to pay for them.
