Included here are the Bowery Boys back catalog of shows from our first year. If you'd like to hear our new episodes, simply search for New York City History: The Bowery Boys and subscribe. New York City history is America's history. It's the hometown of the world, and most people knows its familiar landmarks, buildings and streets. Why not look a little closer and have fun while doing it? The Bowery Boys, Greg Young and Tom Meyers, have lived in New York for the last fifteen years and have been curious about the city since the day they arrived. Join them for a fun take on history, a "romp down the back alleys of New York City." Each week, they look into another fascinating aspect of the Big Apple -- the people, the places, its beginnings and effects on American culture.

A history show of the amateur armchair persuasion whose interest is derived from the Napoleonic idea that history is a myth agreed upon. Ask Tacitus, the Roman Senator and Historian. In fact ask a policeman. BTHP will be taking a look at history primarily from a British perspective but not to the exclusion of other great historical stories.

Recovery Elevator | Stop Drinking, Start Recovering. | Alcohol, Addiction & Life in SobrietyJoin Now to Follow
Hello, I'm Paul and I've come to the realization that I am an alcoholic. When I start drinking, I cannot stop, despite how many times I tell myself I'm only going out for just a couple. I've lost that battle 99 out of 100 times. I've tried to set boundaries on my drinking like never drink alone, and not before 3pm but several times found myself drinking alone well before 3pm. When I'm not drinking, I feel fidgety, contentious and anxious which eventually leads me back to the bottle. After grappling with alcohol for over a decade and a summer from hell in 2014, I decided on September 7th, I HAVE to stop drinking. The Recovery Elevator Podcast is a medium to help keep me sober in addition to helping other struggling alcoholics quit drinking and maintain a healthy recovery. Don't make the same mistakes I did in early recovery. Hear from guests who are successfully navigating early sobriety. It won't be easy, but you can do this.

Sounds Familiar is a podcast about patterns in popular media. My goal is to find the interesting stories and surprising connections hidden underneath these patterns, and prove how the most mundane or cliche parts of our existence can still surprise us.

Download behind the scenes features, previews, and more. THE WAR, a seven-part series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history - a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America - and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives. Throughout the series, the indelible experience of combat is brought vividly to life as veterans describe what it was like to fight and kill and see men die at places like Monte Cassino and Anzio and Omaha Beach; the Hürtgen Forest and the Vosges Mountains and the Ardennes; and on the other side of the world at Guadalcanal and Tarawa and Saipan; Peleliu and the Philippine Sea and Okinawa. In all of the battle scenes, dramatic historical footage and photographs are combined with extraordinarily realistic sound effects to give the film a terrifying, visceral immediacy. THE WAR will air over two weeks, beginning Sunday, September 23, 2007 (four nights the first week and three nights the second week) from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on three nights).
