Best radio broadcast: Baltimore: The Rise of Charm City

Freelance writer Stacia Brown was a newcomer to radio when she started her podcast “The Rise of Charm City,” which aired on WEAA 88.9 FM starting last year. But her fresh take on historical sites made it an easy listen. Varying narratives and memories from locals enlightened segments such as a nostalgic visit to the Shake and Bake Family Fun Center or the touchy subject of Hampden’s gentrification. This year, the podcast returned with Season 2 — giving Baltimore a much-needed reflection of its complexity and its greatness.
