Radio Diaries (Brooklyn, NY 11201-8319)
Joe Kirk Richman (Project Director: August 2015 to present)

The History of Now

Production of a series of 17 radio documentaries to be distributed as public radio broadcasts and online podcasts examining significant events in 20th-century United States history.

The History of Now is a public radio and podcast series that will explore 20th-century American history in order to cast fresh light onto contemporary life. Our stories will originate in the past but illuminate—in unexpected, original, and often profound ways—some of the defining issues facing Americans today: race, gender and sexuality, religion, science and technology, and work. Our goal is to produce stories that bring surprising, resonant moments of history to listeners in ways that feel as immediate and relevant as the daily news. With funding from NEH, Radio Diaries will produce a series of 20 historical documentaries for The History of Now. Ten will be broadcast on NPR’s All Things Considered or on This American Life, and ten more stories will be produced specifically for the Radio Diaries Podcast.
