New York Said

By Amon Focus

Teacher, sales associate, officer, tobacconist, rebel, MTA worker, artist, drifter - who? These are the people in your neighborhood. Hosted by Amon Focus, the New York Said podcast features in-depth artful conversations with people you don't often hear from, to hear things that aren't often shared (said), spotlighting life in New York. This is what New York Said. New episodes available on Tuesdays.
