Conversations on American Culture

Charlemagne Institute is proud to announce Backchannel: a free, live videocast presentation and discussion. We invite our readers and supporters to watch these weekly presentations from one of our thinkers on a designated topic, and submit their questions for the subsequent Q&A session. It’s a continuing opportunity to join an interactive forum – to hear from some of our country’s brightest minds, ask questions, and gain their behind-the-scenes insights and wisdom.

To stay up to date on the Backchannel broadcast schedule, sign up for our Events and Updates newsletter or subscribe to our channel on YouTube.

Our archive is available in both videocast and podcast formats.
