No Script: The Podcast

No Script: The Podcast | S7 Episode 7: ”Men on Boats” by Jaclyn Backhaus

September 27, 2021

In their first sponsored episode of No Script history, Jackson and Jacob discuss Jaclyn Backhaus' play Men on Boats. Based on a true story, the script follows a group of intrepid explorers who set out to map sections of the Colorado River. The characters - historical persons - are all cisgender white men. The cast? Not so much. Listen in as Jackson and Jacob discuss this rousing tale that asks questions of how we understand American history.
