Tom McBride, professor of English and Keefer Professor of the Humanities at Beloit College, and Ron Nief, emeritus director of public affairs at Beloit College, discuss their new book The Mindset Lists of American History, which chronicles what has always and never been true for different generations and how that affects their worldview. 

Listeners: What has always and never been true for you? Has Michelangelo always been a turtle? Has there always been the Grateful Dead? Has there always been AIDS? Have you never needed to worry about being drafted? Tell us what year you turned 18 and what has always or never been true for you--and how you think that shapes how you see the world. Comment here!
