Re: Re: Good American History Podcasts



BackStory ( is a weekly podcast run by three American history professors in Virginia (two at UVa and one at the University of Richmond).  Instead of taking a chronological approach, they examine a particular theme each time, say medicine, labor, sports, etc., and discuss changes and continuities from the 18th century to 21st.  There are a few segments where they interview other historians about various episodes in American history, but the most compelling and insightful parts are usually their group discussions.
