It Was Said Podcast

Speeches can motivate, mourn, and mobilize; after all, "words move humankind for good and for ill." It Was Said, a podcast produced by C13Originals and HISTORY, spotlights famous American speeches that "have been both mirrors and makers of the nation's manners and morals at key moments in our common life." The show is described as a "documentary podcast," as it provides context for "crucial words," helping the listener understand the full story and impact of each speech. Pulitzer-Prize winning author Jon Meacham writes and narrates the show. As of this annotate, the show is on its first season, which includes Meghan McCain's powerful eulogy to her father (Episode 4); President Obama's sermon after the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston (Episode 3); and Martin Luther King Jr.'s final speech in Memphis, where he spoke his powerful words, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," (Episode 1). Listeners will find all of these episodes and more at the link above or can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
