A Small American City podcast is a project by author Duncan Crary. It aims to re-acquaint listeners with small city life in North America through the voices, stories, history and urban fabric of his home city of Troy, New York. The program features spoken-word essays and intimate conversations with a cast of characters who bring this unusual Hudson River settlement to life. This is not a news program. It is not a talk show. It is a passport into the lives of the people who inhabit a place. You are a welcome eavesdropper. And so at first, you may be unfamiliar with and disoriented by some of the names you hear along the way. We won’t always clarify things for you. But like any newcomer to our town, you will get to know all the players over time, if you keep showing up. So belly up to the bar with us. Put your cell phone in your pocket. Let a different sort of exchange nestle in.

Customer Reviews

Really great

I'm in my mid-20s and the product of a mother from Troy and father from Pittsfield, MA who have also lived in Buffalo and Schenectady. For years I'd shunned such cities, but as I age they become much more fascinating spaces. This podcast is an excellent reminder that there is plenty to learn and love.

Troy comes alive!

As in his previous stint at the KunstlerCast, Duncan is at his passionate and entertaining best when touting Troy. He's got me convinced, it's the place to be in the 21st Century.

Really great stuff

This is a very well done podcast. Interesting topics and fascinating characters. It inspired me to pay a visit to Troy when I was in Albany for work a few months ago!
