S5-E22: Granny Lemonade Ruthy Hayes - Rutherford B. Hayes
Amanda and Sam discuss being aware of becoming boring, door dashing Taco Bell, and gazing longingly out of windows. They also discuss fellow Ohioan, Rutherford B. Hayes, and how accident prone he was in war, how much they love him in Paraguay, and the lack of correlation between presidents who had beards and almost any other data.

S5-E19: Babe-raham Lincoln
Happy New Year, listeners! Amanda and Sam are back, predictably later than originally planned, to discuss Abraham Lincoln, possibly the most crush-worthy president. Amanda discusses 7 riots. We touch on SCOTUS's response to Trump's desperate bid to overturn an election he lost. While that portion of it is old news by the time this comes out, Sam's explanation of an amicus brief is timeless. Happy Birthday to producer Zack, on whose birthday we recorded this episode.

What better thing to do on election night (yep, we pre-record) than talk about James Buchanan and his bromances. Amanda discovers that her limit of whiteclaw is one and one quarter whiteclaws and Sam finds out that next to who is winning the election, the next American priority is where to find Chinese food. Spoiler alert: Biden won.

S5-E16: World's Okayest President - Millard Fillmore
In a pre-ramble that is almost longer than the actual episode, Amanda and Sam discuss beans and other carbohydrates, Letterkenny, why cats might lick walls, which animals like baths, how much Amanda hates bedtime at her house, and whether Zack is confidently ready to begin recording the episode. They also discuss Millard Fillmore and a few riots. Side note: We pretty much always pre-record our episodes. The "Hot for Teacher" references were made prior to the death of Eddie Van Halen, an event we would never make light of. May he continue to shred in the great beyond.

You’d almost think that this isn’t an American history podcast. In the eventual episode, they discuss John Tyler (from “…and Tyler too”) and how much everyone completely hated him, but how he also managed to throw more hip than any old man this side of the Mississippi. Amanda discusses three riots. Sam discusses the status of slavery at the time.
