Bowery Boys

One Glorious Year: Your Favorite Bowery Boys Podcasts of 2022

What a way to spend our 15th year of podcasting! You’ve helped make it another fantastic year. Over the past twelve months, we’ve released 24 brand new episodes and even went back to the live stage twice (at Caveat and Joe’s Pub).

On top of the extraordinary work by Carl Raymond of The Gilded Gentleman podcast, who produced new shows all year — from Alva Vanderbilt to champagne.

And speaking of a Gilded good time, Tom spent a few weeks co-hosting The Official Gilded Age Podcast with Alicia Malone — who then came on the Bowery Boys in November to discuss the life of Marilyn Monroe.

A extra, extra special thank you to those who support us Patreon. We were able to produce these shows because of your support and encouragement. PLUS we just started up a new Patreon-only show called Side Streets.

This year we strolled through Little Caribbean and a changing Lower East Side. We visited the Hudson River Valley, celebrated its greatest painters and its greatest ghost stories.

We looked at the history of the Puerto Rican community and paid a trip to the ruins of Roosevelt Island. We profiled Jacob Riis, Marilyn Monroe and Samuel Tilden (and the disastrous election of 1876).

The operator patched us through to the history of the telephone in New York City. And speaking of chats, we got insights on “New York: A Documentary Film” with Ric Burns and James Sanders and the world of puzzles with A.J. Jacobs.

And thanks to guest Hugh Ryan, we saw Jefferson Market in a very different way with an exploration into the place known as the Women’s House of Detention.

But you especially loved the following ten shows — the most listened-to Bowery Boys episodes of 2022.

Looking forward to 2023 — we’ve got LOTS of surprises planned for January and February, plus a new upcoming mini-series for the spring.
