Franklin D. Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, served as the 32nd president of the United States. He was a compelling orator who inspired millions with his "fireside" radio speeches during the Great Depression of the 1930s and his wartime addresses to the nation in the 1940s.

Roosevelt's bank holiday explained
Narration: clear enough.
Content: Roosevelt explains clearly and simply why the banking holiday is necessary, thereby treating Americans with respect. He does not dumb down his explanations. His plan is tight and forthrightly presented.
How refreshing to listen to a speech made by a president who knows how to speak coherently.
