Exploring the city through a new podcast — ThisIsIthaca

ITHACA, NY—ThisIsIthaca, a local podcast, is a labor of love brought to life by friends and co-hosts, Marietta Synodis and Florenz Gilly. The co-hosts come from differing backgrounds — Marietta originally moved to Ithaca around 7 years ago to study herbal medicine. Her plan was to stay for six months but she ended up calling Ithaca her home. She’s now a storyteller that works in various mediums, such as radio, theater and puppetry.

Florenz, originally from Berlin, Germany, came to Ithaca in 2019 to study at Cornell for a year. He now resides in Vienna, Austria where he currently attends medical school. Whenever he’s not studying anatomy, he produces radio segments and podcasts, like ThisIsIthaca.
