    Good episode.

    When he started pulling out the trivia from the top of his head about who took the second-place in the 1960 District of Columbia Democratic primary, I was thinking that he had Michael Barone powers, but I see that he must have written a book about that subject and that he was a past president of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).

    Yeah, I was trying to decide if the sound effects were no big deal or mildly annoying.

    Up until Trump, anyway.  Someone was saying on a podcast recently, I don’t remember which one, that for example Trump handles the helicopter flights from the White House and such more naturally because that was how he lived before, too.

    I liked them, especially the dramatic music every time Woodrow Wilson was mentioned. Don’t let the muggles get you down, Jack.

    I mostly just thought they were funny. Discussion of the history of progressives can get so serious and depressing, the sound effects helped keep me from wanting to drown myself.
