HUB History is a weekly podcast bringing you lesser known stories from Boston's history, from the deadly collapse of the Pickwick Club that was blamed on jazz lovers dancing the Charleston to the UFO sightings recorded in John Winthrop's journal in the 1630s and 1640s. Supporting us will allow us to break even each month, while continuing to create a show you love listening to.

How will we spend your money? First, on basics like web hosting and security, podcast hosting, and audio processing services. If we can cover that, you'll be helping us sign up for research tools, like unrestricted access to Jstor and online newspaper archives. Once we've covered the cost of research tools, we will use your pledges to upgrade our recording gear.
