Today, The Times-Tribune and AccessNEPA.com launched their second podcast — Historically Hip. The podcast, hosted by Times’ Librarian Brian Fulton, will share with you interesting tales from Northeast Pennsylvania newspaper archives and today.
Our first episode deals with the Apollo 11 Mission and Chappaquiddick. Joining me on the inaugural episode is Caitlin Heaney West, a reporter and copy editor at The Times-Tribune and the content editor for our new entertainment news and features website, AccessNEPA.com.
During the course of the episode, Caitlin and I spoke about images, front pages and some other fun things. Here are those items –
Skylab and Wet Hot American Summer
You can read more and see more images from the set of “Wet Hot American Summer” at Camp Towanda in Honesdale – https://accessnepa.com/pages-from-the-past/summer-camp/
