The Bronx Tourism Council has launched a new weekly podcast featuring Bronx people, history, and stories. The podcast is a 15 to 30 minute show hosted by executive director Olga Luz Tirado alongside Bronx-born historian Angel Hernandez.
The first four episodes will include the history of Swedish-born Jonas Bronck, founding father and author of the preamble to the U.S Constitution Gouverneur Morris, early 20th century mobster Dutch Schultz, and the inventor of “detective fiction” Edgar Allan Poe. There will also be interviews with other historians, experts, and everyday people.
The Go Bronx Podcast will be available on multiple platforms like Podbean, Stitcher, and Spotify and will air every Wednesday beginning August 26t–and is also expected to air on iTunes podcasts.
