"Talking Hart Island" with Michael T. Keene and Guests

These will be free half-hour weekly podcasts that explore the history of Hart Island, America’s largest mass graveyard. Hart Island has been used as New York City’s potters field since 1869. It is estimated there are over 1,000,000 people buried there.

Thanks to recent advances in DNA, we have now learned who some of these previously forgotten and anonymous people were. The results are truly shocking.

Mr. Keene will interview a special guest each week selected from an extraordinary assembly of scholars, authors, and scientists in the fields of history, law, medicine and the arts as they unravel a secret kept hidden for over 150 years.

There are 39 Episodes planned, with a description of each on the website. The first will be available starting Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 7:00 AM. If you miss an episode after it has been posted, you can go to the website, view it and/or download the podcast for later viewing.

Watch for more details, and final dates and times as the year progresses.
These will be posted here,
in our quarterly Newsletter, and in our local Newspapers.
