Justin took a trip to the place we are talking about in today’s podcast; walked the lands; smelled the grass; gambled in the casinos. We will be digging into why George chose Valley Forge, the layout of valley forge, and some of the significant characters that joined George during his winter quarter.

OH BOY! This episode, Ryan decides to drink a little bit too much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Regardless, we push through… General Horatio Gates scores a massive win at Saratoga. He manages to capture the British General John Burgoyne. This is YUGE! After this win, people start crap-talking George behind his back. Congress decides that Georges needs a little help (aka, they want more say over Washington’s actions); so they design the Board of War to meddle in his affair a little bit. Washington learns of all...

Spoiler alert… Washington is messing it all up again. But have no fear, he's just as brave as he’s ever been. Before we talk about a massive blunder by George, we talk a little about Benny Arnold. We also get into George’s arts and craft skills. Then we learn about how Howe beats Georgie’s tush and eventually takes Philadelphia. Washington attempts to fight back, but that doesn't go well either.

My its been a long time. Sorry for the break, we have been busy celebrating the holidays. Also, one of us had all of our audio recording equipment stolen. Anyways... This podcast we take a trip down south and abroad. Basically, we have been talking a lot about military and political actions in the northern part of the colonies. The south was kind of on board with the British; they didn’t want much to change. Nathanael Green was in charge of the patriot actions in the south; as a mentee of...

This week we continue to talk about espionage in the Revolutionary War. Some of the major players, on the domestic espionage front, were associated with a little group called the Sons of Liberty. Samuel Adams (not the beer) was one of the groups major players in this group; however, he did not found it, contrary to popular belief. We also have a discussion about a guy named John Jay… He basically tried to make figuring out who was an enemy spy and who wasn’t a standard process. Up until Jay,...

Washington 15 - Groupies of War

For this show, Justin and I went to Home Depot, purchased some tiki torches, and recorded this show basking in their soft, flickering glow… It’s all the rage. Howe is chilling in winter quarters; he’s all about that ball lifestyle. Washington has had his Mr. Miagi montage moment and is ready to start assembling his all-start team.

Washington 14 - Redcoats Red Snow

7/21/2017
More
On the day of our lort and savior's birthday 1776, George sets in motion a plan to embarrass the British, leverage a strategic advantage, and crush the Hessians in Trenton. This show covers some pretty epic moments in early American history. One scene from today's episode was reimagined by painter Emanuel Leutz. 'Washingtons crossing the Deleware' is one of the most iconic images of the revolutionary war; however, the image is far from what actually happened that cold Christmas day 1776.

Well, It’s a little embarrassing when you are the Commander and Chief of an army and the fort named after you gets overtaken by your enemy. In this show we also talk about our most recent trip to Mt. Vernon; and way at the end, we have some exciting new announcements.

Washington 12 - Such Gowanus Heights

George has one hell of a time trying to figure out where the British are going to engage his troops; Long Island or Manhattan?! As our friend George does so often, he bets on the wrong horse. After a day of tragic defeats, George gets all ‘drama queen’ on us and attempts to get himself killed on the battlefield...

Washington 11 - Howe... Did You Get Here?

4/1/2017
More
The master stratigizers for the British show up on the scene; one of these guys had the nickname Black Dick, so we know they definitely were NOT playing any freggin’ games. We also talk about the Declaration of Independence and the effect it’s signing had overseas and within the colonies. Also, if anyone is actually reading these, leave me a little note on Facebook or send me an email contact@potus.life… otherwise, I’m just going to start leaving a joke here or maybe just copy random news...

Washington 10 - Magic Mike XXXL

3/22/2017
More
Every leader needs a few good men… When it came to George’s security detail, he wanted a few good looking men. George was oddly specific about the men he entrusted to make sure he was safe. As we learn, he should have been a little less concerned with looks and a little more concerned with their loyalty towards him.

Washington 9 - The First Continental Breakfast

If you could pick anyone from any period in time; who do you think could have done a better job at being the general of the revolutionary forces?

Our pal, and first president of the US, George Washington didn’t start the American Revolution by himself. He definitely had some friends that radicalized his beliefs as well as helped shape his thoughts into actionable concepts. We briefly touch on the first and second continental congress. Then we get into the shit… George becomes general and the Americans get their first taste of battle.

George Washington may be on the $1 bill, but he was certainly not a man made of money. George loved the finer things in life and wasn’t afraid to spend those Benji's to get them. What’s a man to do when he seems to outspend himself at every turn? … That discussion and more on this episode of POTUS life.
