American Loser: William Jennings Bryan – “Always a Bridesmaid, never a President”

This week’s “Loser” is the fascinating William Jennings Bryan, who was nearly the President of the United States three times. Known as “The Great Commoner,” he helped transform politics and election campaigning into what it is today. We cover “Free Silver” vs “Gold Standard,” Bryan’s famous “Cross of Gold” Speech, and why you should never fuck with Teddy Roosevelt. We are joined this week by NJ Comedian Rich J. McDonald, one half of the improv duo “McDonald and Bumpercar.”
