Check out this great Podcast if New York City History is “your cup of tea”: http://boweryboysarchive.libsyn.com/rss
I enjoy listening while driving or doing chores around the house. The hosts are enthusiastic New Yorkers who provide content in a entertaining fashion. You’ll truly feel like you’re being educated without the boredom that one stereotypically associates with a high school History course. These two gentlemen don’t waste your time with nonsense; they have a job to do and they do it well.
I highly recommend the “Bowery Boys” podcast.
