About Us

The United States has been shaped time and again by large migrations of its population. These are the stories of America in motion.

Latest Episodes

The Yankee Diaspora: Also, Michigan

Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois were all established and grew up to statehood relatively quickly, thanks in large part to strong influxes of Yankee migrants. In this episode, Brian & Lyman discuss Michigan’s much slower maturation. Tune in for tales of French Detroit, swamping, and the land surveys that launched thousands of militiamen!

The Yankee Diaspora: Also, Michigan

S1E15 - The Yankee Diaspora: "Keystone of Perpetuity"

Brian & Lyman balance out last episode's discussion of "Little Egypt" with a look atthe early settlement of Chicago. Appropriately, the Windy City, even before its founding, was seen as a sort of balance to southern Illinois. Listen for talk of voter fraud, onions, civil unrest, beer, nativism, and a tease of a forthcoming James Wilkinson story.

S1E15 - The Yankee Diaspora: "Keystone of Perpetuity"

S1E14 - The Yankee Diaspora: Land Before Lincoln

Illinois's early history in the United States is one without the typical urban touchstone of Chicago. In this episode, Brian & Lyman discusses downstate Illinois, "Little Egypt," and the politically volatile mixing of Yankees and Upland Southerners that lead to yet another interesting clash over the fate of slavery in the Northwest Territory. And yes, we know, Illinois's Cairo is pronounced "KAY-ro" or "CARE-o", but we opted to use the classic Egyptian pronunciation. We wanted to make obvious the Egypt connection. We Kentuckians have our own share of towns with pronunciations that make no sense in the context of their Old World namesakes or antecedents: Louisville ("LUHL-vull"), Versailles ("Ver-SAILS"), and Athens ("AY-thenz"), just to name a few.

S1E13 - The Yankee Diaspora: Vandals of the Midwest

Brian & Lyman continue discussing the early settlement of Indiana by a curious mix of yankees and southerners. In this episode, learn about Indiana'sunfortunate history with infrastructure projects, how Indiana narrowly avoided becoming a slave state, and how Indiana could have had a significantlymore awesome name. Oh, and I believe we're done with the incessant Hoosier slander. For now.

S1E12 - The Yankee Diaspora: The South Goes North

We're back! Brian & Lyman go where no Kentuckians dare venture alone: Indiana. Where did Hoosiers come from, and what traits have historically characterized them? Learn about Hoosier demography, Native American land-sale treaties, and Brian's short rant on America's Ninth President! We (Brian) apologize (a little) for the largely-unearned yet liberally-applied Indiana-bashing. So, Hoosiers, feel free to write us with your jokes about our fine commonwealth to your south.

S1E12 - The Yankee Diaspora: The South Goes North

S1E11 - The Yankee Diaspora: The North-Mid-Old-West

Beginning in the late 1780s, Yankees really start breaking into relatively new lands. West of the original 13 states and north of the Ohio River laid the newly-established Northwest Territory, consisting basically of every western state that touches a Great Lake. Up first on this trek: Ohio P.S. Ruth clearly thinks that nothing burned down in this episode. Can any eagle-eared listeners prove her wrong?

S1E10 - The Yankee Diaspora: Battle of the Waterspouts

It's time to settle the Midwest! But first, a return to Brian's favorite characters: the sleigh-riding Yankees of upstate New York! Brian & Lyman discuss Albany, NY and the culture clash that occurred when New Englanders arrived in the prominently Dutch town. Also, hear about how religious fervor and urban fire changed the local culture. Bibliography: Covart, Elizabeth M.

S1E10 - The Yankee Diaspora: Battle of the Waterspouts

Season 1, Episode 9 - Enslaved Migration Recap

Having now covered roughly 200 years of enslaved migration in the United States, Brian & Lyman ask each other what it all means. In what ways does the modern U.S. reflect this troubled past? What effect has enslaved migration had on America's sense of self? How did a misguided attempt at helping freed American slaves leave a lasting impression on a totally different continent? Is the lesson to be learned from the horrors of slavery that America is evil? Or is there perhaps a sliver of hope to be found at the end of it all?
