“When we see the land as a community to which we belong, we may use it with love and respect.” Aldo Leopold

The Traversecityist is a podcast mixing interviews, history, folklore, and social observations. Our content is intended to facilitate common understandings, traditions and values, with the goal of building a sense of local identity and solidarity.

New episodes are dropped once a month. Please email us at if you are interested in sponsoring a whole episode as a business, nonprofit or an individual.

The Traversecityist is supported by the Friends of the Traversecityist, listeners who subscribe monthly (or annually at a discount) and receive additional benefits in accordance with their contribution level. You can join the Friends of the Traversecityist by subscribing below:
