We’ll Pay You $2020 to Binge 24 Hours of the Best and Worst Leaders

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

MagellanTV will pay one U.S. voter $2020 to binge watch 24 hours of documentaries featuring famous leaders throughout history as preparation for voting in the U.S. election.

(Even if you’re not able to vote, we’d love your participation. We believe in the pursuit of knowledge no matter your circumstances!)

With the 2020 elections looming, Americans' eyes are on the nation's leaders. As every household prepares to participate in this historic moment, it's important to remember the world has seen leaders of every kind, from despicable despots to commendable kings. So why not educate yourself by binge watching incisive documentaries about leaders -- and leadership -- throughout history?
