History Worth Repeating

Author, scholar, and radio journalist Russell Cobb on the delicate art of on taking historical narratives to mainstream audiences

Watch Replay (Alumni Only)

Writing about the past is daunting. We can’t interview the dead, and the archival trail is often tucked into obscure locations. Russell Cobb will teach you where to look, and how to organize all your breadcrumbs into a cohesive story. A scholar, author, and podcaster, he’ll lead a discussion on researching, framing, and narrating history for the general public. He’ll survey the field of history podcasts and talk about print and online outlets looking for history stories. Whether you want to start a new podcast, write a documentary treatment, or simply write a family history, this class will get you started.
