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...

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.

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.

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.

Episode 3.5 - A Drunken Discussion of the Seven Years War

1/7/2017
More
This inbetweenasode is brought to you by some really tasty whisky… Apparently we forgot to talk about the French and Indian War / Seven Years War / Third Silesian War / Pomeranian War in episode 3. The War of Many Names occurred between the events of episode 3 and episode 4. This War really sets up the events of the Revolutionary War. Because of its importance, we wanted to make sure we brought you a mostly complete and accurate account of what went down. Enjoy :)
