Past Present brings together three historians to discuss what's happening in American politics and culture today. Natalia, Neil, and Niki bring historical insights to the news of the day, offering listeners an alternative to the reflexive and polarized world of punditry. Interested in the world around you but exhausted by rote reactions and partisan talking points? You've come to the right place.
In this week's special flashback episode, Niki, Neil, and Natalia debate Woodrow Wilson's legacy at Princeton, the spiritual origins of SoulCycle, and Bernie Sanders's place in America's socialist tradition.
