New Show: BackStory
Tune in to KTOO News at 3 p.m. on Saturday to hear a new program we’re trying out. BackStory is a weekly hour-long show in which renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths. Over the course of each episode, the historian-hosts are joined by people in the news, callers, and fellow scholars interested in exploring the roots of contemporary America. Together, they reveal the connections — and disconnections — between past and present.
Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
