The backstory

Philadelphia is a treasure trove of stories. Many of these stories are hidden in plain sight. We walk by them everyday and don’t see them. Other stories we think we know, but we don’t look close enough to see the details.

The Found in Philadelphia podcast aims to bring these stories into focus, to introduce you to the places and people of Philadelphia, and to help you see the city with new eyes. Each story will highlight a moment in Philadelphia’s past that still impacts us today. Every podcast will take you on a field trip in the city that you can experience yourself.
