I really enjoyed this podcast. The speeches samples, analysed and discussed in every episode are quite varied and span a large period of time from Martin Luther King to most recently Trump. I loathe Trump but his speech was interesting and I do understand why people voted for him. Unlike previous Presidential candidates he seemed to use the same language and share ideas with regular people. In other words he was a better bullshitter than the other candidates. I also enjoyed Margaret Thatcher's the lady's not for turning speech. I loathe her as well for what she did to my country but there's no denying her importance as the first female PM in the UK. The current PM Theresa May is only the second one. I'll give Thatcher that. I was pleasantly surprised by this podcast and didn't know what to expect.
