American History Tellers
About This Show
The Cold War, Prohibition, the Gold Rush, the Space Race.

We’ll take you to the events, the times and the people that shaped our nation. And we’ll show you how our history affected them, their families and affects you today. Hosted by Lindsay Graham (not the Senator). From Wondery, the network behind Tides Of History, Fall Of Rome and Dirty John.Read more »

3 days ago
If you lived in an American city at the turn of the century, you got all of your news from a single source: the daily newspapers. No where was that more true than New York City; in the City, two papers ruled them all. You had the World and the Journal. And then men behind them were the most famous newsmen in American History.William Randolph Hearst headed up the Journal and Hungarian immigrant Joseph Pulitzer ran the World.In their mad scramble for readers, they’d pioneer daring technologies and set new precedents for aggressive investigative coverage. They poured millions of dollars into the fight even when their advisors warned it could push them over the brink.And in the end, it very nearly did. This is just the beginning of this story.

Very well done.
I really like this show. It's very well done. The drama effects are enough to keep you engaged and keep your interest, but they don't distract from the narrative. Many history podcasters tend to drone on like a boring highschool teacher; Lindsay Graham (not the senator :p) is very engaging, like a great story teller. I would say this podcast is more akin to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History... Shorter and with sound effects. :) I recommend to anyone who wants an not-boring American history podcast.
