Backstory on WGCU News

Wednesdays at 8PM

BackStory brings historical perspective to the events happening around us today. On each show, renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths. They're joined by fellow historians, people in the news, and callers interested in exploring the roots of what's going on today. Together they drill down to colonial times and earlier, revealing the connections (and disconnections) between past and present.
