On Presidents' Day 2022, we talk with the nation's foremost historical actor of George Washington about what it is to inhabit the character of America's first General of the Armies, first President, and the person who held the states together long enough to give a burgeoning nation a shot of its own. We dispel misconceptions, the things that a career in business and a career being George Washington have in common, and we talk about the strange path that leads to the doorstep at Mount Vernon, where Dean Malissa portrayed George Washington for twenty years. There's a lot more to it than false teeth and fallen cherry trees.
