Frank and David discuss Daniel Feller's controversial SHEAR (Society for Historians of the Early American Republic) plenary session on the parallels between Donald Trump and Andrew Jackson. They examine the content of Feller's printed and spoken paper, the composition of the panel, the problems with the Q&A, and what this says about the future of SHEAR and scholarly societies more broadly.
