The 1600 Sessions

By The White House Historical Association

The White House Historical Association presents The 1600 Sessions, a podcast that shares the stories behind America’s most iconic residence and office, the White House. Through conversations with historians and eyewitnesses to history, we open the doors to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - because it’s not only the President’s House, it’s the People’s House.
