Presidents Day is approaching. Though the political climate is a rough one at the moment and you may not be feeling too patriotic — understandably so! — this day is also one for reflection, in a lot of senses. It's a day to think about the previous presidents who have changed the fabric of history. So, that said, I think listening to some of their speeches is a good way to celebrate President's Day this year.

So how can we do that? Well Acast, this platform that houses on-demand audio and podcasts, actually put together a Presidents Day playlist of speeches to boost he morale of Americans called Presidents Day Collection. They chose a few of the most memorable speeches from our nation's most recent leaders: The speeches include words from former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, and John F. Kennedy.

So, on Presidents Day, take some time to reflect. Here are the speeches offered through Acast:
