BackStory is a weekly public podcast hosted by U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Brian Balogh, Nathan Connolly and Joanne Freeman. We're based in Charlottesville, Va. at Virginia Humanities.

There’s the history you had to learn, and the history you want to learn - that’s where BackStory comes in. Each week BackStory takes a topic that people are talking about and explores it through the lens of American history. Through stories, interviews, and conversations with our listeners, BackStory makes history engaging and fun.

Excellent perspectives, well narrated, natural and fun. It gets a little long, to be expected of profs who really know their subjects.
The first few seasons were stellar. Then they decided they needed to add some new voices, and many of the newer episodes lost their keen focus, or were remixes of earlier episodes. I stopped subscribing to it. I would definitely recommend checking it out though.
