Presidential Transitions with David Marchick

Presidential Transitions with David Marchick

Despite our fascination with presidents and their administrations, historically little attention was paid to the transition process -- what happens between election night and Inauguration Day.

The delays witnessed after the 2020 election brought to light the need for an effective, streamlined, and productive presidential transition process. But just what does that entail?

Join me this week as I chat with David Marchick about his book, The Peaceful Transfer of Power: An Oral History of America's Presidential Transitions. We not only discuss book, but also the important work that happens behind the scenes to prepare a president for day one, and why smooth presidential transitions are so critical. 

David is the host of the podcast Transition Lab and former Director of the Partnership for Public Service's Center for Presidential Transition. He currently serves as the Dean of American University's Kogood School of Business.
