Announcement

December 12th, 2020

2020 continues to be the year of fun times, and some new circumstances mean that we need to take a short break from the podcast. Fear not, we will be back in a couple of months! (plus: a hint on the future of Totalus Rankium)

Election Special: Wicked Game

November 14th, 2020

In this election special episode we are lucky enough to get to chat to the people behind Wicked Game: American Elections. They have covered every American president election in US history, and we get to pick their brains about the most recent one. How it played out, and predictions for the future! 

31.2 Herbert Hoover

November 8th, 2020

As the 2020 presidential race unfolds while we record, Jamie and I attempt to stay focussed and talk about just how well Hoover managed the great depression. Spoiler: It does not go well. He is a 1 term president. 

31.1 Herbert Hoover

October 24th, 2020

Herbert Hoover lives an action packed life full of contradictions. Join us as we try and figure out who this man is. A robber Barron? A great humanitarian? A populist? A progressive? A massive racist? And also, will he be ready for the upcoming great crash?

Release Schedule update

October 18th, 2020

UPDATE: We are changing how we release our episodes. It's getting harder and harder to keep on top of the current weekly release, and it's only going to get harder as we get closer to modern times in the President series. Therefore we are going to use the following release schedule.
 
Romans: No change. Two-weekly releases. One emperor per episode.
 
Presidents: Instead of- Ep.1, Ep.2, Ep.1, Ep.2 etc, there will now be a gap between presidents to give me more time to research. So it will be Ep.1, Ep.2, No Ep, Ep.1, Ep.2, No Ep, etc.
 
Hope you all understand. I didn't want to do this, but the workload is starting to get unmanageable, and I'd rather release slower than rushing the research and missing things/making mistakes. Cheers.

30.2 Calvin Coolidge

October 4th, 2020

We found it hard to figure out Coolidge last episode, but maybe this episode will clear things up. Find out what he got up to as president! Oh, and there is a vibrating horse and a rampaging bear in it. 

30.1 Calvin Coolidge

September 19th, 2020

Coolidge may be a man with hidden depths, but if he is, they are ocean-trench deep. Join us as we try and figure out if Coolidge has a dry wit and worked hard to get the top job, or he is a robot with a lot of luck.
