Curious Nashville: What Tunnels Lie Beneath the City?

 

Speaker: Tony Gonzalez, News Director, 90.3 Nashville Public Radio

To everyday people, tunnels are evocative, and they wonder: What’s really beneath our city? This question was posed to the Curious Nashville podcast, leading local reporter Tony Gonzalez to explore the history of tunnels in the city. As part of his series, he goes underground to check on rumors and delves into the city’s impressive network of stormwater tunnels. He’s here to share the most entertaining things he learned as one way of getting to know our host city of Nashville.

About the Speaker:

Tony is a veteran reporter, editor and special projects manager who joined WPLN News in 2015. He’s covered breaking news, local politics, arts & culture, and often delivers stories that air nationwide on NPR. He also leads the Curious Nashville series, which answers questions from residents, and edits longform and investigative projects. Tony is a bike commuter and hobby juggler who lives with his wife and daughter in East Nashville.
