The American History Guys are hard at work on a brand new season of BackStory, including episodes themed to reenactments and emancipation. Our schedule for the second half of the fall and into winter, however, has not yet been nailed down and we would love your input! Propose a topic below and explain why you think it would make a compelling subject for us to tackle.
If you’ve never listened to BackStory, spend some time in our archive of past shows to get a sense of what we’re all about. You can also read what others have pitched in the past here and here. Basically, we’re looking for topics we can trace over the entire course of American history, rather than single chapters from that history. In other words…
- Civil Rights Era=Bad Topic
- The History of Activism=Good Topic
- The Gold Rush=Bad Topic
- Boom & Bust in American History=Good Topic
To suggest a topic, either join the discussion below OR send an email detailing your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
