Presidential

Here's something scary and exciting: there are only a little more than six weeks until we find out who our next president will be. Presidential from the Washington Post has been devoting an episode each week to each of our 43 presidents. It launched Jan. 10 and is now up to President Jimmy Carter, which landed yesterday.

Presidential's episodes aren't just Reader's Digest versions of each president's history or path to the White House. They include fun facts, tidbits about their personalities and home life away from the spotlight of leadership and have guest journalists and historians providing insight into the lives of these men.

Because of more recent research into our Founding Fathers and pop culture phenomena like Hamilton, more people have become more interested in the first few presidents.

Did you know George Washington was a fantastic dancer, but was very insecure about taking on the first presidency? Why isn't there a monument to John Adams in Washington, D.C.? We remember Thomas Jefferson's words more than any others — "We hold these truths to be self-evident ..." — but he also had an affinity for French cuisine and fine wines.

Closer to 2016, a longtime political adviser to President Jimmy Carter explains how faith shaped his presidency and Steven Ford talks about his father President Gerald Ford's leadership style.

One of the episodes I can't wait to get to is President Richard Nixon, where journalist Bob Woodward (the one who broke the Watergate scandal) examines Nixon's downfall.

Presidential is perfect for those who want to brush up on their presidential history and fill in the blanks between our Founding Fathers and presidents of their lifetime. It's also an essential listen for a presidential election year. The episodes examine what it really means to be president and the traits the make the best and worst ones.

Listen on iTunes, Stitcher and washingtonpost.com.
