(Episode 68) Presidential Minisode 25: Speak Softly and Walk on Stilts - The Teddy Roosevelt Story
Listeners, welcome to our next Presidential Minisode discussing Theodore Roosevelt, who entered the Oval Office after McKinley was assassinated. In his youth, Roosevelt was prone to illness, but overcame his struggles through physical pursuits like gymnastics, weightlifting, boxing, judo, and stilts. During his term(s) as POTUS, Roosevelt may have been best known for trust busting, conservation, and an active role in world politics. You may also remember him from your history classes as the President who continued giving a speech after being shot.
For more fun facts (like how his family had so many pets!), some riots, and general musings, give a listen to the episode now.
