About the station

We’ve had 45 presidents and each one represents a unique chapter in our country’s history. Those chapters are filled with triumphs and tragedies, successes 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 every episode of This American President, we will try to tell one of those stories. Find all of our episodes at thisamericanpresident.com and follow us on Twitter @ThisAmerPres.
