Episode 18: Only in New York
You can learn a lot in a New York minute, but you can learn even more in sixty! Facts Machine is back with an episode all about our hometown, the Big Apple. Listen to learn why The Strand bookstore is the last shop standing from New York's legendary Book Row, why electric cars caught on in the 19th century only to be undermined by fragile masculinity, and why a New York sculptor has been creating monuments to fictional disasters all over the city.
This episode was written and produced by Emily Costa, Noah Guiberson, and Rob Frawley. Our theme was composed by Anthony Antonelli. Our logo was designed by Mike Zolla.
