Cincinnati Neighborhoods Focus Of New Urban Roots Podcast


The Cincinnati neighborhoods of Avondale, Evanston and South Cumminsville are the focus of a new podcast.

Urban Roots is set to complete its first season. Hosts Deqah Hussein-Wetzel, a Cincinnati-based podcaster and Somali-American historic preservationist, and Vanessa Quirk, a New York City-based podcaster and cities journalist, go in-depth on urban history, particularly stories involving women and people of color.

A grant from ArtsWave Cincinnati helped support the inaugural season.

Hussein-Wetzel and Quirk join Cincinnati Edition to talk about the local neighborhoods featured and the future of the podcast.
