On this episode, I’ll talk to two Harvard students who are stirring things up on campus this summer with their unauthorized Hahvahd Tour. That’s H-A-H-V-A-H-D. “Hahvahd.”
Two weeks ago, I was walking through Harvard Square looking for topics for Boston Behind the Scenes when I came across a group gathering for a tour in “The Pit,” next to the entrance to the T station.
This unauthorized tour of Harvard has gotten a lot of attention, with stories in the Globe, the Herald, and of course the Harvard Crimson. I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about, so I waded into the crowd, took out my recorder, and spent an hour and a half learning quite a bit about Harvard.
Afterwards, I sat down with my two tour guides for a behind-the-scenes look at the Hahvahd Tour.
[UPDATE: The Hahvahd Tour is now Unofficial Tours presents Harvard University, and they’re still going strong in Harvard Square]
