Every four years, someone loses the election for president of the United States. What is it like to suffer such an epic defeat? What do you do with yourself after suffering heartbreak on the world stage? In this episode, we interview Peter Shea and Tom Maday on their new book, In the Arena: A History of American Presidential Hopefuls, to find answers to these questions. Along the way, we learn about the fascinating figures who sought the nation's highest office and, fairly or unfairly, are forever remembered for coming up short.
