I was recently interviewed on a radio program called BackStory, which (to use their own words): "brings historical perspective to the events happening around us today. On each show, renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths."
In honor of Valentine's Day, they have put together a great segment about the history of courtship in America, and spoke to me about my ads! It's now online, and will be broadcast around the country on local NPR stations, so it might even being airing on a radio station near you! So I invite you all to go check it out. I'm the first person interviewed, but the rest of the program is also very interesting and worth taking the time to listen to:
Love Me Did: A History of Courtship
Anyone interested in seeing the actual ads quoted in the interview can find them here, here, here, and here.
