“American Talkers” was a long-running series produced by Sound Portraits Productions, one of StoryCorps founder Dave Isay’s previous production companies. It was a mission-driven organization created in 1994 dedicated to telling stories that brought neglected American voices to a national audience.

This podcast is the second in a series of three featuring classic “American Talkers” radio stories that we’re revisiting this month.  In this episode, stories from a town with an accent all its own—New York City.

Released September 19, 2017.
