Elise Lonich Ryan, a faculty member in the Dietrich School's Department of English, has expanded her popular "Secrets of Pittsburgh" class to include a podcast.

The Secret Pittsburgh class combines reading with exploring the landscape and communities where local events took place and locally famous people grew up, from August Wilson’s Hill District to the Carrie Blast Furnaces, from Rodef Shalom’s Biblical Botanical Garden to the three rivers. In the earlier years of the class, students created their own guidebook. Now the guidebook is taking the shape of a podcast.
