Julie is co-host and co-producer of the popular history podcast Flatbush + Main.
In April 2016, Julie launched Flatbush + Main, a podcast from Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS), with co-host and co-producer Zaheer Ali. Each month on Flatbush + Main, Julie and Zaheer dig into some of the most compelling stories that they encounter in their work as historians at BHS. They speak to historians and activists, explore primary sources at BHS's archives and beyond, listen to and analyze oral histories, and endorse some of BHS's terrific exhibitions and public programs.
Flatbush + Main episodes have tackled salient topics like the history of waste, the past and future of Brooklyn's waterfront, the borough's Queer spaces, and more.
To hear Julie and Zaheer talk about their vision for the podcast - and how they came up with the name "Flatbush + Main" - you can listen to this short introductory episode.
