The American History Guys are hard at work on a new season of shows for Spring ’09, including histories of motherhood, death and mourning, and the farmer. But the summer of ’09 is still uncharted territory and we need your input! Propose a topic below and tell us why you think it would make for a compelling BackStory episode.
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. Or, you can 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 episodes or chapters from history. So….
The 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 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
