I would like to recommend a new podcast called Now & Then. The show is hosted by two professors of American History, Joanne Freeman of Yale University and Heather Cox Richardson of Boston College, who are obviously friends and enjoy conversation with each other as well as sharing a deep knowledge about our past. (Richardson has Maine ties.) I have been familiar with both of them through past podcasts (Freeman was on a great show called Backstory that unfortunately ended last year), and Richardson seems to have gotten fairly famous chronicling daily events of the past couple of years on her Substack newsletter. Both of them have written books that are available through Minerva.
If you go looking for this one through your podcast player, be careful that you are not subscribing one several other podcasts with the same name.
