This Used To Be The Place is a fiction podcast series exploring how New York City’s past collides with its present. Season One centers around Anna who, after emerging from her apartment for the first time in three days, finds a notebook with an intriguing list of names. Each episode, she tracks down one person on the list to try to determine how they’re all connected. Coming up with creative excuses, lies, and even schemes verging on criminal, Anna manages to insert herself into their lives in order to uncover their stories, or perhaps just to break the lonely monotony of her own life. As she ventures throughout New York, Anna discovers not only what the list means, but how the city isolates and connects us, and how the people who live here hide and reveal their secrets. Driven by a renewed sense of purpose as she investigates the list, Anna begins to move forward from a tragic past, navigating her struggles with mental health while dealing with the universal issues of finding your place in the world and coming to terms with who you are.

Creators & Guests

We don't know anything about the creators of this podcast yet. You can add them yourself so they can be credited for this and other podcasts.

Since this is a series that mostly lives in the protagonist’s head, it’s mostly her narration with occasional other characters showing up. I found myself drawn into Anna’s all-encompassing loneliness, her anxiety, her self loathing, and her tentative desire to connect with someone, even under false pretenses.
