Backstage Podcast Featured on “How Stuff Works”

Backstage Podcast is making waves, and our most recent feature came from HowStuffWorks.com.

In the article, writer Laurie Dove examines the controversy surrounding Richard Nixon’s second inauguration. Nixon’s second term began amid the Watergate scandal and the nation’s growing discontent with military action in Vietnam, and to protest Nixon’s second presidency, Leonard Bernstein organized a concert the evening before the ceremony.

Bernstein’s concert happened at exactly the same time as a concert to honor Nixon, making it an “anti-concert.” It attracted about 15,000 people.
