Friday Favorite: @BackStoryRadio

I don’t listen to very many podcasts, but one that I usually keep up with pretty well is BackStory with the American History Guys. In the podcast, three professors (Peter Onuf “18th Century Guy”, Ed Ayers “19th Century Guy”, and Brian Balogh “20th Century Guy”) discuss various topics in American history. The inspiration for each show’s topic usually comes from a current event of some kind, and the creators of the show seek to shed some light on the historical events that led us to where we are today.

I enjoy all the episodes and would highly recommend the show, but to close here are some of my personal favorites:

Fear Tactics: A History of Domestic Terrorism

Let’s Make Up: Reconciliation and its Limits

1865: United States of Uncertainty

Counter Culture: A History of Shopping

Straight Shot: Guns in America

Happy Friday All!
