History Happy Hour Episode 184 – New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia
Guest: Terry Golway
Sunday, February 11, 2024
This week on History Happy Hour: He was one of the twentieth century’s most colorful politicians—on the New York and national stage. He was also quintessentially American: the son of Italian immigrants, who rose in society through sheer will and chutzpah. Almost one hundred years later, America is once again grappling with issues that would have been familiar to the Little Flower, as he was affectionately known.
Chris and Rick will explore his life with Terry Golway, author of I Never Did Like Politics: How Fiorello La Guardia Became America's Mayor, and Why He Still Matters.
Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
