So I came across this podcast, and I must say Mikey D. just gets it! I am not from New York, nor even from the continental U.S. (raised on Maui); but the stories he tells and how he tells them transports me back to my childhoold. The memories of being a child: the best friends, the adventures, the influences of time and place - this podcast gets it all right.
One of the best ones out there!!
Transported back in time
As I sit listening, my family and I can visualize it all. TV show or movie based in this would be awesome!
A flashback to Our Youths.
Mikey D stories from East Harlem reflects those of any child growing up in the 70s and 80s. As the movie “Sandlot” take us back to our glory days of Neighborhood baseball, these stories takes to the fun and excitement of a period long gone. Pre internet and days of staying inside , these memories of being sent outdoors to find adventure and ways to entertain ourselves. His reflective writing brings you into the time period and his adventure. Highly suggest these stories to anyone in need of returning to a simpler time in our lives.
