In the Past Lane: The Podcast About History and Why It Matters

In the Past Lane is a weekly podcast hosted by historian Edward T. O'Donnell and produced by Lulu Spence. Historians Megan Kate Nelson and Stephanie Yuhl serve as senior correspondents. Each episode of In the Past Lane focuses on a different aspect of American history with an eye to how past events have shaped our contemporary world. Many episodes feature interviews with guest historians, providing listeners with expertise on a wide range of subjects. In one recent episode, O'Donnell chats with historian Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America about how government programs, such as Federal Housing Authority loans, promoted and maintained residential segregation. Other recent episodes have explored topics including the War of 1812, the Great Epidemic of 1616, and the Vietnam War in American memory.
