Charles Dawes: The Anti-Filibustering Musician Vice President

Opponent of the filibuster and sometimes a royal pain for the President he served under, Dawes is probably one of the most accomplished Vice Presidents of the United States. In his life time he would win a Nobel Peace Prize, posthumously he would win a Grammy. Friend to both William McKinley and William Jennings Bryan, a banker who could play that piano. We don’t know him as well today but in his times, he was oft larger than life.

We are joined by Chris Novembrino, musician and developer of our podcast theme. Also host of Dont Worry About the Government podcast on this one.

Some music by Lee Rosevere.
