This podcast is devoted to exploring presidential history from the founding of the office in 1789 on through the present day. I plan to take a systematic approach to both the people and the events that have shaped and reshaped each administration and the office in general.
Interview with C W Goodyear, President Garfield
Year(s) Discussed: 1831-1881
On this episode, I am joined by C W Goodyear, author of the new biography President Garfield, to talk about the man who he described as “a pathologically reasonable person” and his navigation through the turbulent waters of Reconstruction and Gilded Age American politics to become the 20th US President. In our discussion, we talk about some of the key individuals in Garfield’s life and political career as well as some of his achievements and failures. Believe me, there is much more to learn about Garfield than just his tragic end. More information about Garfield can be found on the website at https://www.presidenciespodcast.com.
