Fail to the Chief is my bimonthly podcast dedicated to the lovable losers of presidential history. Each episode digs into the man's history, the reasons why he was nominated, how and why he lost, and takes a step into the fantastical to wonder how history might have been different had he won.

I'm primarily going in chronological order, although every once in a while I will be stepping out of bounds - like for Martin Luther King day when I jumped out of order and did Gov. George Wallace in 1968.

Take a listen, even if you're not a history nerd. Subscribe on iTunes here, and enjoy!
