Marco Zaza has been telling family stories—funny or sad or nostalgic stories—at various dinner tables for over half a century now. These are tales that reveal one family's experience as immigrant- and first-generation Italian-Americans. With this podcast Marco shares these entertaining memories with a broader audience. Now illuminated with conversations that add details and tangential stories, the episodes elicit the laughter and tears that always resulted when he treated his family, gathered around a meal, to a sweet memory or two.

David and Marco, Adrienne shared your podcast with me a few days ago and so far I listened to episode one about the winter wonderland as well as the finale episode about traditions and I thoroughly enjoyed both! Loved hearing father and son reminisce and record your precious conversations about family history, stories, and traditions.

Each and every episode makes you laugh and sometimes cry but listening to the history of the family is priceless. The music, the narrative and heartfelt stories touch the heart even if you are not part of the family. We will be very sad when it ends. more
Love this podcast! I grew up in North Eastern Ohio and relate to many of these stories. Brings back so many of my own family memories.
I was born into an Italian family on the East Side, where We lived on Quinn St and then Bennington. East High School was just beyond our back fence. I remember very well the spring on Parker Street. My friends and I would make frequent trips there. One of my favorite places was Victory Field and its wonder summer recreation program. When we left Youngstown in 1957, I was heartbroken for months. Keep on gifting us your East Side stories.
Growing up in an Italian American family in Youngstown myself, this has brought back so many memories. Ive laughed, I’ve cried with these stories. The love and chemistry between this father and son is contagious... it makes me remember story time around our own table with my father, and sets the bar high for me to do the same with my son. Well done fellas, you make Youngstown proud. Salute!
