The American History Podcast

A Program Of Virginia Foundation for the Humanities



Pitch Guide

Help us make history! Pitch us your idea for a BackStory episode that you’d like to hear. Please include the following information:

  • Overall topic
  • Questions to jump-start the discussion of the topic
  • Suggestions for interview subjects

When pitching, please suggest topics that we can trace over the entire U.S. history rather than a single chapter. For example, “The Civil Rights Era” wouldn’t work as well as “The History of Activism in America.”
