Headliner of State: Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 2017)

Lincoln might be the greatest president. Can he also claim the title of funniest president? Lincoln Prize winner Richard Carwardine spent the last several years researching and writing "Lincoln's Sense of Humor." He joins us to chat about Abe's remarkable gift for storytelling, his purposeful use of comedy, and the ways it affected his public career -- for better or worse. It's a thoughtful, joke-filled discussion about the humanity of an American legend.
