This isn't really a new post, but more of a shameless self promotion. Recently I was invited on the Hoosier History Live radio show hosted by local historian Nelson Price which broadcasts from the University of Indianapolis.
For the April 17, 2021 show, I discussed a blog post from back in December about locating the Riverside Park Bear Pit (photo of the inside of the pit below).
If you are interested in listening, the link to the replay of that show is accessible here, along with a link to the Riverside blog posting.
Additionally, a blog posting from September 2019 covering the Shade Tree Association and early tree planting efforts in Indianapolis was the subject of a previous Hoosier History Live show in April of 2020. A link to that show may be accessed here.
Thanks again to Nelson and everyone involved with Hoosier History Live for inviting me on the show!
