Episode 21: Digging up details about the tunnels beneath our feet

Storyteller Gregory Howell sits down with Dave Moore to do just that: Tell fascinating stories about Pueblo and the secret tunnels beneath our feet. Did you know there is a massive network of tunnels — similar to the catacombs — underground in Pueblo?  Gregory Howell gives us the inside look at how these tunnels were used, mainly during prohibition times to smuggle bootlegged goods. 

Howell is currently a Commissioner on the Historic Preservation Commission for the City of Pueblo where he is an advocate for adaptive reuse of historic properties, economic redevelopment and tourism.  He’s so into tourism, he even spitballs an idea on how to open up Pueblo’s underground and turn it into a tourist attraction! Take a deep dive with us and unearth one of Pueblo’s best kept secrets whispering under your shoes.

Also tune in to his series The Dig where he tells incredible stories and broadcasts them live from the historic Backroom at the Senate Bar which is located directly across from City Hall.
