BackStory is an engaging and entertaining discussion of historical topics concerning American History. Its hosts are scholars, all three of whom are fun to listen to (and can be very funny).
- Peter Onuf, the "Eighteenth-Century Guy," is a scholar at the University of Virginia and expert on the founding period, especially on Thomas Jefferson.
- Ed Ayers, the "Nineteenth-Century Guy," is President Emeritus at the University of Richmond. One of his books won the Bancroft Prize.
- Brian Balogh, the "Twentieth-Century Guy," is also a U.Va. scholar and is expert in commercial nuclear power.
|L-R: Balogh, Ayers, Onuf|
