Back Story is an American history podcast but with three guys with different perspectives. The guys take an issue and then look at the issue from three and now the fourth century of American history. One is the 18th century guy and gives the perspective of the 18th century, then someone does the 19th century and finally does the 20th and 21st century.
Often the stories involve around holidays but in looking at past stories, they’ve discussed the Scopes trial and the history of unemployment. Its a fascinating look at how American opinions have changed over the years and how for example unemployment would not be an issue in early American history, but will more than likely be the deciding issue in this election in the fall.
If you like American history, I highly recommend Back Story, It makes you think.
