S2 Episode 22: The History of Grand Rapids with Tim Gleisner of Library of Michigan

 

As the Manager of Special Collections at the Library of Michigan, Tim Gleisner knows a thing or two about local history. On this episode, Tim chats with the Chamber’s resident history buff, Andy Johnston, on Grand Rapids’ rich history of floods, furniture, and pigs being used to dispose of trash. We also enjoyed the most fitting beer possible for a history podcast, having sipped on John Ball Brown from Grand Rapids Brewing Co.!
