Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, in 1911, was one of the deadliest industrial disasters in US history.

Grossinger's has everything, Part I
Grossinger's was an enormous resort that provided fun year round activities for decades. Dancing, skiing, tennis, they had it all. In fact it was the resort that inspired the film Dirty Dancing. This podcast will dive into the story of Grossinger's and the people shaped by it. A couple years back I posted a video about Grossinger’s resort in the Catskills, a once enormous 1200 acre vacation resort. I never visited the resort while it was open but I was struck by its beauty in its decay. I expected the video to get some views and comments but what I didnt expect is that It would get comments that inspired me to make a podcast. What I was struck by is the emotion and detail of these comments and I wanted to share them, but YouTube wasnt the right place for this, I needed a longer format. Podcast…thats it! So here we are, this is my first ever completed episode of the Find It podcast featuring those stories and more. I welcome your comments and questions. You can comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. finditpodcast.com Facebook group Guests in order of appearance: Marisa Scheinfeld Author, photographer, explorer.
