Production of 22 new one-hour radio programs and podcasts along with educational components for teachers on a series of three historical themes over a two-year period.

BackStory with the American History Guys, a national, weekly one-hour broadcast show and podcast--a program of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) at the University of Virginia--requests an America's Media Makers grant of $234,868. Funds will be used to produce a special series of 22 radio programs that will ultimately comprise three mini-series. Under the banner "Finding the American Way," the grant-funded episodes will be paired with lesson plans and packaged for educational purposes. Partners include the National Council for History Education, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and HISTORY (History Channel).
