Writing History with a Journalist's Perspective – Colin Woodard

Description

Journalist and historian Colin Woodard is the author of six wonderful books: American Nations, American Character, Union, The Lobster Coast, Ocean's End and The Republic of Pirates. In this episode of Paid by the Word, Colin talks about the 11 rival cultures of North America. 

For me, this conversation was like having a loud alarm go off while I'm trying to sleep. Understanding the long and complicated history of North America's competing cultures is essential, especially now, when it seems as though the United States has entered a new age of political instability.

I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation, and that you are inspired to learn more about our common past -- and our likely future.
