John Galluzzo has spent his entire life on the South Shore and today uses his deep knowledge of the region to teach others about its nature and history. His “South Shore Walk of the Week,” running (or walking) at 6:45 every Thursday morning from the spring through the fall, and based on his popular book Half an Hour a Day on Foot: An Obsessive Exploration of the Nature of the South Shore of Boston, is the radio expression of that goal.
John works full time for Mass Audubon’s South Shore Sanctuaries as adult education and citizen science coordinator. He also writes a weekly column for the Hull Times, a monthly article for South Shore Living magazine, and contributes to several other publications on a regular basis. He’s penned, oftentimes with wonderful coauthors, books on numerous South Sore communities.
He’s often heard on the South Shore Morning News and occasionally pops in to Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds and Nautical Talk with Captain Lou, both on Sunday mornings.
