Undiscarded: Stories of New York


Critic Rating

A ticket stub, a bottle cap, a piece of fabric, a plastic souvenir, a lightbulb… these simple things hold power – they capture moments in time and the stories of people’s lives. Undiscarded: Stories of New York is a new podcast series that celebrates the extraordinary history behind seemingly mundane objects, telling absorbing and absolutely unique stories that shed new light on the people whose lives have always made New York so alive, exciting, and gloriously messy.

"I love New York. I’ve lived here for eighteen years, I thought I couldn’t love it more. My heart expanded three sizes listening to these beautiful episodes that shine light on the city’s quirkiness, stories that couldn’t happen anywhere else in the world. These stories illustrate the city’s rough edges and beauty, the kindness found in the chaos, and the heart of the people who live here. There couldn’t be a more beautiful love letter to a place."
