New York City’s Secrets & Lies: What Lies Beneath
July 8 @ 11:04 am$12
Can you tell the difference between a secret and a lie when it involves New York City history? This month, we’re spinning tales about “What Lies Beneath”: covert operations, secret lives, and the hidden goings on literally happening right now under the daily hustle and bustle of these streets.
Four expert storytellers will dazzle you with secrets of our shining city’s past, but one of them is telling a fake story. Separate fact from fiction and you’ll be in the running to win a fantastic prize from Untapped Cities.
Our show also features a special guest who is a true New York City Secret. This month, we’re so lucky to have Ben Mirin, a beatboxing ecologist who’s going to tell you all about his amazing wildlife music work.
Christa Avampato, an award-winning author, journalist, and passionate New Yorker, produces, casts, and hosts each show. Together with the cast, she digs up little-known secrets about New York City history that we pass by every day. You’ll be entertained and learn stories about this incredible city that will make you the most-coveted party guest in town.

Sandi Marx (The Moth Slam Champion, Kevin Allison’s RISK!, Story Collider, HotMic with Dan Savage)
