The History of Breaking Walls

Beginning on February 15, 2018 with Breaking Walls Episode 75, I’ll be tackling a long-term story arc: A Chronological History of American Dramatic Radio.

I launched Breaking Walls in 2014 with a scalable and linear concept: sit-down conversations with luminaries, centered around helpful topics, all laddering up to a monthly theme.

The show has since expanded to include on-the-scene reporting at places like The American Museum of Natural History, The Maggie Flanigan Acting Studio, and Industry City.

It’s also expanded to include mini-documentaries about people, programs, and moments during the Golden Age of Radio. These shows include the history of Suspense: Radio’s Outstanding Theater of Thrills, how Jack Benny, Jell-O, and a tax code changed the network broadcast landscape, and Yours Truly Johnny Dollar and the death of American dramatic radio.

These mini-documentaries will soon be expanding.
