Guest Spotlight: The Last Archive

This week, we’re featuring an episode of a podcast we’re big fans of: The Last Archive! The Last Archive tells little known histories and how they affect our modern lives. It tells stories that at first seem to be about something small, but turn out to be about much more.

“Parakeet Panic,” explores a moment when invasive parakeets began to spread in New York City in the 1970s — and the government decided that the solution was to kill them all. If you liked this episode, you can listen to more of The Last Archive at thelastarchive.com, or wherever you get your podcasts.
