East Bay Yesterday

An exploration of East Bay history and amateur historical storytelling with the host and producer of the podcast, Liam O’Donoghue

Everyday people make history, and an increasing number of amateur historians are using the skills of historical research and storytelling to gather, preserve, interpret, share, and celebrate local history.

For six years, journalist-turned-historian Liam O’Donoghue has hosted East Bay Yesterday,  an award-winning history podcast that focuses on the East Bay. His work has covered the East Bay cities of Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, and beyond. In addition to the podcast, he’s hosted live events, a boat tour, and co-created the Long Lost Oakland map. Join the Alameda Museum Virtual Speaker Series to learn more about the DIY approach to historical storytelling of East Bay Yesterday, how O’Donoghue started his podcast, resources for research, and approaches to multimedia storytelling.

The virtual event takes place Monday, August 15, 6:30-8:00pm. To register, visit the Alameda Museum’s website. You can also register on Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYpd-qrqD0vHt0YDStcw39l1ZGsWvsRfHHp
