Pearse hosted this podcast for his subscribers but I am also making it available for those of you who support me on Patreon as well.  In the first of three episodes, Pearse and I examine season 1 of the original (and superior) House of Cards, which follows Francis Urquhart’s rise from Chief Whip to Prime Minister.  In the coming months we will examine season 2 and 3, so stay tuned for those.
