Crossover: Colombus and Genoa with the History of North America

We went ahead and our narrative quite a bit to have a chat with Mark Vinet of the “History of North America” podcast about the Explorer Christopher Columbus and his relationship and history with his native city of Genoa.

We talked about the location, foundation, history and geography of the city and the traces that we can find of the Explorer to this day as well as talking a bit about Genoa in the 21st-century.

Another great opportunity to have a chat with a fellow podcast about the topics our podcasts have in common.
