Faneuil Hall Marketplace is Open for Business! What Does This Mean?
What does the future hold for Boston? Historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace reopened its doors today, but what can restaurant owners and publicans expect from the summer of 2020? In this episode, we discuss what this all might mean to the city, the restaurant owners, the employees, and the people who support the establishments. The perspective is constantly shifting as pandemic living affects the economy, family, quality of life, and the rhythms of life that have been part of the fabric of who we are.

Observing and Listening: Positioning Ourselves to Be Better Humans
These last few weeks have been nothing short of mesmerizing for Boston from the Inside. I had the opportunity to meet, photograph, chat, interact with dozens of people while wearing out the soles of my shoes finding interesting people and places to feature on Facebook and Instagram. Each person and experience welcome a different dimension of learning and understanding, and I'm happy I was present during a low key rally in front of the now-missing Christopher Columbus statue located on Boston's Waterfront. Questions were asked. Answers were given. Some folks responded on Facebook and things got a bit ugly, but I now have an opportunity to delve deeply into the experiences of that day with you on this episode. This is my chance to expand on the photos, videos, and articles that are posted daily. I hope you'll listen, like and share!

Three Guys from Boston Walking & Talking in the Public Garden
Today is a new day for Boston from the Inside. I'm super excited to announce that I have asked two great friends to join me at BFTI: Christopher Hickey of Charlestown, MA, and Rob Watts of Dorchester, MA! We took an opportunity to begin a new podcasting format/series where we record while on location and discuss all things Boston for your listening enjoyment. In this episode, we walk and talk while enjoying an idyllic spring evening in Boston's Public Garden. We hope you enjoy the show and don't forget to share it if you like it! I added an explicit tag on this show because sometimes we talk about subjects and sparingly use colorful language to recreate moments in time, so in the interest of the little folks around you, it's the best thing to do.

A Conversation with Christopher Hickey: A Native of Charlestown, MA
The Coronavirus is creeping up on every corner of the globe. Whether you live in Boston or Katmandu, we are all feeling the same psychological effects and perhaps for the first time in history, we are all sharing our experiences, our concerns, and our fears in real-time through the power of the internet. We simply cannot get away from the conversation. I take advantage of the first part of the show to discuss COVID-19, but then I transition to a more relaxing state of mind by delving into a wonderful conversation I had a few weeks ago with Christopher Hickey, a native of Charlestown, MA and former classmate of mine at Don Bosco Technical High School. He and I discuss the Boston we remember as young adults, and explore the transition of our city upon a hill.

Old South Boston High School, MLK, Jr. Day & Volunteering
I'm driving into Boston to volunteer on MLK, Jr. Day at Excel High School on Telegraph Hill in South Boston, and it dawned on me that this high school was where the South Boston Busing Riots of 1974 happened. I also drove by the Old Colony Projects, and coincidentally I had just finished reading the book "All Souls: A Family Story from Southie" by Michael Patrick MacDonald and so many of the stories in that wonderful book took place here. This podcast expands on that day and the thoughts that ran through my head.

The Day I Discovered I Had a Boston Accent
Ladies and gentlemen, whether you still live in the Boston area or you live wicked far from here now, I’d like to welcome you to my very first episode of the Boston from the Inside Podcast. On this show, we get cerebral (and sometimes emotional) about the people, the places, the stories, and experiences that make this historic and beautiful city the world-class it is today. We have a lot to talk about the conversation topics are endless. I hope you'll join me on this journey.
