More about This American President
We’ve had 45 presidents so far, and each one represents an unique chapter in our country’s history.
Those chapters are filled with triumphs and tragedies; success and failures. Some of our presidents were brilliant, and others were just plain bizarre. But they all have a story to tell and helped to shape the country we have today.
In each and every episode of This American President, we will try to tell one of those stories… and we look forward to sharing them with you.
