Every Bowery Boys: New York City History podcast in chronological order by subject

Twelve years ago (officially on June 19, 2007) we recorded the very first Bowery Boys podcast, appropriately about Canal Street, the street just outside our windows.  

We cannot have possibly imagined on that hot June night, wielding only a bad microphone, a new laptop and some reasonably interesting information about a terribly polluted water source, that would still be doing this, stronger than ever.

Thank you listeners and readers for helping us celebrate almost four hundred years of history in the past twelve. We have so many exciting things on the way for 2019.

Here’s a new way to experience our old podcasts.

Below is our entire list* of shows, placed in a particular chronological order, based on a critical date in that subject’s history.

Viewing our back catalog of podcasts in this fashion, we hope that you can really start seeing the entire history of New York City emerging. To this day, there are some blatant holes in our historical coverage that we hope to close up in future shows.

So enjoy! And thank you all again.

*In the rare case where we revisited a subject (Flatiron Building, Canal Street) we only included the most recent show. And the first four episodes are not available (but those who support us on Patreon have access to episodes #2-4).

You can find our podcasts anyplace. Read here for more information on where you can find our shows.
