Alexis and Elliott re-examine the legacy of our country’s most famous peanut farmer-turned president, number 39, Jimmy Carter. Carter may have served for only one lackluster term in the Oval Office, but he’s had the longest post-presidential career of any former POTUS. Our hosts take a closer look at Carter's humanitarian work with the Carter Center, and Alexis visits his hometown of Plains, Georgia where she attends a Sunday school class taught by Carter himself, and chats with locals who know him fondly as “Mr. Jimmy.”
Presidents Are People Too!, an Audible Original, recasts each of the American presidents as real-life people, complete with flaws, quirks, triumphs, scandals and bodily ailments. Hosts Elliott Kalan, former Daily Show head writer, and American historian and author Alexis Coe talk to experts, comedians, journalists, actors and re-enactors to better understand the men memorialized on the Washington Mall and those all but forgotten.
