Hear about the grand speeches, emergency strategies, baby kissing, and backstabbing that make each presidential election cycle so fascinating."

Why it's on the list: This show started as a historical look at presidential campaigns. With the swearing in of Donald Trump, it has become a show about how past presidents compare to the current one. Host John Dickerson reveals plenty of surprising parallels along the way.
