Vote for election college

It’s such an amazing podcast. I’m a ten year old who has been listening for two days and really love it already. I’m looking forward to when they finish the LBJ thing that they started.

History Nerd Approved

As a self-proclaims history nerd and with a degree in politics science, I am always looking for a good podcast on American history. I stumbled across the Election College episode on Abigail Adams and ended up loving this podcast. I started from the beginning and now listen to this podcast everyday during my commute. I highly, highly recommend this podcast to anyone who loves any aspect of American history. You won’t regret it!

Great Show, in 1.5x

They really express their love of Presidential history in a non-bias way. I have a side job doing odd jobs and I discovered this podcast a year ago, started binge listening every time I worked, 3-5hrs a day a few times a week. About 3 weeks in I realized that the Podcast App I was using was set at 1.5x speed, and when I started listening at normal speed...what a surprising difference! The cousins like to small talk for a good amount of the podcast, but still a great listen, love how they have an episode for every 1st Lady.

Love the topic but...

I would love a podcast focused on each election staring with context of the major events leading into the election, the nominating process and course of the campaign. Listened to the first few episodes hoping this was it and it was kind of brutal. Hoped it was just because the hosts weren’t in a groove yet and assumed as it went on it would get better. It really didn’t. These guys are probably really smart but they make themselves sound like laymen. If I wanted a layman’s view of elections, I would go read Wikipedia. There is a significant need for an academic look at elections in the podcasting world, not two guys who sound like middle school history teachers without a plan and way too many ads to plug. I really hope these guys take another stab at each election going far more in-depth. You may not think there is an audience for more academic election talk but I guarantee it’s there. People do not want to be talked down to, especially by guys who don’t exude a ton of confidence of what they are talking about. Two stars because I really have hope that this topic will be better covered one day.

Great concept for a podcast!

I wanted to know more about American history but didn't know where to turn. Election College provided me with the layout and material I was looking for. Their content is great, covering a range of topics from every presidential elections to the story of each president and much more. I look forward to new episodes and hope to see this podcast reach 1,000 episodes!

Great listen!!

A very enjoyable podcast on Presidential politics, including the individuals who became president, VPs, First Ladies and others. I came late to the podcast, but have now listened to the first 300+ episodes and highly recommend that you start from the 1st episode.There is a nice mix of humor and facts that have kept me listening.I waited to write this review wanting to see if it would last longer than the fortune cookie podcast! Great job guys!

Election College

Very interesting and informative. The length of the podcast is 30 minutes . It is difficult to listen to a podcast for an hour or more. Jason and Ben are excellent speakers!

One of my favorite history podcasts. They take a fun view on what would be an other wise boring topic by sprinkling fun facts about those involved in the founding and shaping of this country. I originally listened to just the presidential election episodes and came back a few months later after realizing the quality here is higher than other American history podcasts. Most importantly they give a truly unbiased view.

Fun and Informative U.S. History

This is such a great podcast for anyone, but particularly for high school and college students who may only get a “survey” course. This takes a more thorough look at the people and events that make up the unfolding story of our collective past. Great work!

Patience is virtuous

I am certainly late to this political party. The first dozen or so episodes were not to my taste and I almost gave up. My patience paid off as they eventually started going into high gear during the middle of the 19th century. The overall low-key tenor may turn some off, but this is like listening to two knowledgeable cousins banter about the elections. Oh wait, it is. A great podcast and I am enjoying catching up. I am only 56 episodes plus the recent ones into the series.

I stumbled upon gold with this podcast. I take pride in being a weirdo who binge-listens to presidential podcasts, and it didn’t take me long to make it through episodes once I started. From His Rotundity to Eugene Debs, Ben and Jason do a great job of entertaining listeners while providing great background and info on elections and important people. My favorite part is that they bring obscure historical figures out to the spotlight who deserve more attention. 5 stars all the way!

Entertaining

You sure make learning fun. I’ve just started at the beginning and haven’t caught up, but I love all of the nicknames for the historical figures.
