The American History Podcast is a half-hour weekly show discussing the story of America as it unfolded, from Sir Walter Raleigh’s ill-fated Roanoke Colony to the 20th Century. This is a story about American culture. It’s about who we are as a people, and why.
The Cold War, Prohibition, the Gold Rush, the Space Race. Every part of your life -the words you speak, the ideas you share- can be traced to our history, but how well do you really know the stories that made America? We’ll take you to the events, the times and the people that shaped our nation.
Hosted by bestselling author Steven Johnson (“How We Got To Now”), American Innovations uses immersive scenes to tell the stories of the scientists, engineers, and ordinary people behind the greatest discoveries of the past century.
BackStory is a weekly podcast that uses current events in America to take a deep dive into our past. Hosted by noted U.S. historians, each episode provides listeners with different perspectives on a particular theme or subject – giving you all sides to the story and then some.
The Museum is proud to present two podcast series:“History Explorer” takes listeners along on our staff’s intellectual adventures as they conduct exciting research and collect objects—both the iconic and seemingly mundane—to tell compelling stories about American history. "Prototype Online: Inventive Voices" is produced by the Museum's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation and features interviews and lectures of renowned inventors and innovators.
