We are obsessed with the presidency at American POTUS. We believe that the 46 imperfect patriots who have held our nation’s highest office all have something to offer today’s electorate – a perspective that appropriately grounds today’s political conversations in truth and context. To help us reveal the many layers of each administration, we’ll be joined by the nation’s most influential historians, scholars and experts who have studied every facet of the presidents and the presidency.

POTUS er den første podcastserie om amerikanske præsidenter. Anders Agner og Lars Græsborg Mathiasen ser sammen med deres gæster nærmere på disse store personligheder, der har stået i spidsen for USA på godt og ondt. Du får både politik, personer, glæder og sorger, sejre og nederlag. Alt sammen fortalt af folk med både indsigt og passion. Det er med andre ord podcast i præsidentklassen.
 
A little bit of bourbon, a little bit of history, and a whole lot of trying to figure out how to not say, "Washington" too many times in an episode. POTUS Life is podcast of indefinite length that digs into the lives of the almost all white, rich, and dead club of US Presidents. We explore what paths these dumb dumbs took to the Oval Office. The show starts with Washington and his gross teeth.

In late 1918, World War 1 was winding down, but the fighting over what exactly peace would look like, was just getting started. Woodrow Wilson stepped in with 14-points that he thought would create lasting peace not just then, but for future generations. He faced an uphill battle though, getting our European allies and our own Congress to back the …
 
Chief Justice John Marshall was one of those guys, always in the middle of things - fighting alongside Washington, and helping create the constitution.

Asking which President was the worst, will get you many different answers, but most historians and experts will agree – the title goes to James Buchanan. His resume was one of the most impressive in the history of the White House, but his obsession with being a Presidential People Pleaser may have ultimately been his demise. He flip-flopped a lot o…
 
From the time James Garfield took office, he was focused on cleaning up the dirty politics of Washington.

We’ve all seen the picture, a smiling Harry Truman holding up the Chicago Daily Tribune’s front page with the headline “Dewey Defeats Truman”. But as with most headlines, there’s a lot of story behind the big bold print. At the end of the day, it all really came down to overconfidence versus confidence, one side relishing in a supposedly insurmount…
 
He was the President who had it all, then lost it all, only to gain a lot of it back – Richard Nixon.

Today, the perspective of history has shown us that his might just be the ultimate comeback story - the president who went fr…
 
Theodore Roosevelt was a sickly child who found relief in the great outdoors and then preserved it for future generations as our 26th President.

It took a lot of political capital to make it happen, and o…

If you thought modern elections were tight, we present to you – the election of 1876!

A multi-million dollar post-presidency book deal hasn’t always been the norm for an ex-President.
