The Detroit History Podcast

Welcome to the Detroit History Podcast. We’ll mine this city’s history, telling the story through this town’s cultural, social, political, musical and automotive heritage. Our chosen tool is the podcast. We’ve started our third season of The Detroit History Podcast. What’s on the docket: the election of Coleman Young, The Underground Railroad in Detroit, the origins of Detroit Jazz, WABX Radio and Plum Street (what used to be The Haight-Ashbury of Detroit), and much more. You can now find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.
