Our friends at the Mariner's Mirror podcast have featured another Hudson River story! Dr. Marika Plater first wrote about the use of steamboat excursions by Chinese Americans here on the History Blog back in October of last year. Here, she discusses her research with Mariner's Mirror podcast host, historian, and author Dr. Sam Willis.
Listen below or on the Mariner's Mirror podcast website.
