While the stories of trailblazing women continue to inspire, many of them have been written out of history books or ignored by historians. On this week’s episode, curator Marcela Micucci talks to us about these figures — including the so-called “Witch of Wall Street,” Hetty Green — who had a big impact on all aspects of city life. Micucci’s exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York is titled Rebel Women: Defying Victorianism, and it’s full of colorful stories.
I also talk to critic Paddy Johnson and artist William Powhida, co-hosts of the Explain Me podcast, about the fall season, New York museums, and what they’ve been up to.
