This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from Syracuse, New York and the restored Marriott Syracuse Downtown. The hotel dates back to 1924 and is a great example of how to maintain and preserve a piece of history. Joining Peter will be Patrick Smith, Author of Cockpit Confidential: Everything You Need to Know About Air Travel, with his thoughts on airport security and the layout of most airports in context of the recent shooting in Fort Lauderdale. Sean Kirst, Author of The Soul of Central New York, shares the hidden history of Syracuse. Speaking of history, Frank Barrows, Superintendent of Fort Stanwix National Monument who oversees the Harriet Tubman Monument, talks about a side of Harriet Tubman that many of us don’t know, and how her efforts differ from those of Frederick Douglass. Gregg Tripoli, Executive Director for the Onondaga Historical Association, shares the history of the Onondaga Lake. Philip Arnold, Associate Professor of Religion S.U. & Director of the Skä•noñh—Great Law of Peace Center, shares the history of the Onondaga Indians and the impact that the Native American tribe Haudenosaunee (people of the Long House) has had on the formation of the United States as we know it. There is all of this and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the legendary Marriott Syracuse Downtown in Syracuse, New York.
