Just a little update to let you all know how we are and what our plans are.

23.2 Benjamin Harrison

March 7th, 2020

Benjamin has navigated through a life full of war, politics and cucumbers, but now he faces his biggest challenge: to live up to his grandfather's memory and lead the United States as president. However, it would appear the solution to everything is... tariffs! Listen while Rob attempts to convince Jamie that talking about tariffs is important!

23.1 Benjamin Harrison

February 15th, 2020

Benjamin Harrison is the grandson of a former president, but that does not mean he has it all easy. He has to contend with forbidden cucumbers, William Wallace and grave robbers before he can even start to think about becoming president himself.

23 Mid Way Review

February 1st, 2020


We are half way! And what better way to celebrate than to chat through our rankings so far with the wonderful Jerry Landry from the Presidencies Podcast. Not only that, but we answer your questions (read in a variety of different accents by Jamie!) What more could you want?

22.2 Grover Cleveland

January 18th, 2020


Big Steve is now in the white house, and he has his mind on one thing: his dead friend’s daughter. Once married however, he settles down to some good old fashioned tariff debate. Don’t worry though, we talk about plenty of other things: ballbat, the new colossus, rail strikes and open yacht surgery!

22.1 Grover Cleveland

January 4th, 2020


Grover Cleveland, or Big Steve to his friends, wanted to be a lawyer. So when he uncle gave him the opportunity he went for it. From then on he goes from one job to the next until he finds himself president! Shame about all the skeletons in the cupboard…

21.2 Chester Arthur

December 14th, 2019


Chester Arthur finds himself the first unwilling president of the United States. The bad news: He has done nothing but embrace a corrupt form of government his whole adult life - and now finds himself pushed to the top by a man who killed another president to allow this system to continue. The good news: He has a mighty moustache. Let's see how we rank him!

21.1 Chester Arthur

November 16th, 2019


Arthur is not the most well known of presidents, but that does not mean he did not achieve much in his early life. Who else managed this level of corruption? Who else could claim to benefit from the patronage system so well? Who else was so much of a Conkling man? He may be a coaster, but damn it, he could coast like the best of them. 

20.2 James Garfield

November 2nd, 2019


Garfield is now president and is ready to deal with all the issues facing modern America. We spend this episode looking into how he deals with the corruption that is rife within the political - Hang on! What’s that!? 


Looks like we have something else to focus on this episode…
