From BackStory With The American History Guys

The recent Citizens United and Hobby Lobby cases raised questions about “corporate personhood” and fueled debate over corporate power.

In this public radio podcast (52:59), U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh explore the changing status of the corporation throughout American history. They ask how corporations became such powerful institutions in American life and how Americans in the past viewed their role and influence.

Helpful features of the site include a breakdown of audio segments, a written transcript, and a resources section.
