Prohibition Series Part 5: Advertising and Taxing the Modern Cocktail
In the years preceding Prohibition, alcohol in America was unregulated and cheap – a dangerous combination that eventually led the nation to enact the “noble experiment” of the 18th Amendment.  On today’s program, we’ll examine the ways different states continue to regulating alcohol. We’ll also look at the marketing of alcohol and how the new “high end” cocktail is altering the culture of drinking.

Scheduled Guest:

Prohibition Series: Legislating the Drinking Age

Posted by: perry 9/20/2011 10:25 PM

Tuesday, September 20
Prohibition Series: Legislating the Drinking Age
The legal drinking age was raised to 21 in the mid-1980s. While that law is credited with reducing the number of alcohol-related highway fatalities, some experts believe it inadvertently created a youth culture of reckless behavior and binge drinking.  On today’s program, we’ll examine the growing debate to lower the drinking age.

Scheduled Guest:
Barrett Seaman is the author of Binge: Campus Life in an Age of Disconnection and Excess. He is president of Choose Responsibility.

Prohibition Series: The Temperance Movement and Women’s Rights

Posted by: perry 9/14/2011 11:00 PM

Wednesday, September 14
Prohibition Series: The Temperance Movement and Women’s Rights
The 19th century movement to end drinking in America was born to counter the destructive forces of grain-based alcohol. Those forces were often felt by women and children, as their head-of-household abused alcohol and then came home to abuse them. On today’s program, we’ll examine the role women played in getting the amendment passed – and the unintended consequences that played out after their successful efforts.

Scheduled Guests:
Catherine Gilbert Murdoch, author of “Domesticating Drink: Women, Men, and Alcohol in America, 1870-1940”
