"Hi As we head into the final days of the twenty twenty presidential campaign. Many of us are pretty sure this is one for the history books, but that will be for the historians. Thirty forty or a hundred years from now on this episode, you may be relieved to know we are not covering the current election, but we are hearing from three great American presidential historians time travelers really who spent their lives submerged in the past. So they could report back to the rest of us if science fiction and reverse. I've never written science fiction. But what works in science fiction is, how do people do things? And it's so foreign to us. Beginning with space travel of any kind or would use vern travel into the interior of the earth or whatever. But that's what grabs you about science fiction they do things differently. Well, the same thing happens in history. How did they do things? How did they measure distance? How did they start a fire when they didn't have any matches and dry newspaper? How did they study the stars when they didn't have the kinds of equipment that we have today? How did how how do you make a canoe? When all you've got an axe. And some big trees how do you do that? So you're you're you're traveling in your mind all the time. That's one of our esteemed guests Stephen Ambrose using examples from his book on Mary Weather Lewis Thomas Jefferson and the opening of the West his fellow time travelers on this episode are David McCullough and David Herbert Donald they'll all talk about the president who fascinated them most and the art of bringing them to life. This is what it takes a podcast about passion vision.
