The podcast’s co-host, Isaac S. Loftus, works on projects about the past and self-identifies as a “disaffected playwright,” according to his Twitter profile. The co-hosts met years ago when they worked together on a docuseries about George Washington. For the project, they spent time talking to historians and those conversations branched out into longer narratives that did not make the docuseries’ cut. This podcast is a space for the co-hosts to share these conversations.
