Chicago Audio Works Podcast: Episode 2

In the second episode of the Chicago Audio Works podcast we feature an interview with Jan Van Meter, author of Tippecanoe and Tyler Too: Famous Slogans and Catchphrases in American History. Host Chris Gondek talks with Van Meter about the various slogans and catchphrases that permeate our public culture—from Theodore Roosevelt’s “speak softly and carry a big stick,” to the Virginia Slims marketing slogan “You’ve come a long way, baby”—and their profound influence on American values, beliefs, and politics.
Chicago Audio Works is produced by Chris Gondek of Heron & Crane and the Invisible Hand. This and previous episodes of Chicago Audio Works are also available from iTunes and other digital media aggregators.
