The global reach of the iHeartRadio app and social media brought the show's defense of Christopher Columbus across the Atlantic to the shores of Italy. Angelo Sinisi lives near Genoa, Columbus's birthplace, and heard our support of the great navigator. Sinisi was born in Italy and later moved to the Detroit area with his family. He has since returned to Italy for retirement and is saddened that Italians are not aware of Columbus's great accomplishments. Sinisi is now asking us to extend our hands across the water to help him honor "Cristoforo Colombo" in Italia. Click below to hear a podcast of his surprise transatlantic call into the show.
