In our 99th episode of The Italian American Podcast we highlight some of our favorite clips from our first 98 episodes. We also discuss some of the new and exciting developments which have been going on with The Italian American Podcast. It’s an episode full of fun, laughter, and heartwarming reflections that you should definitely check out.
We both picked a few clips from some of our favorite episodes and will reflect back on the “Strictly Dolores and Anthony Age” of the podcast. Looking back at how things were for us since inception up to now and how the themes in these clips have evolved through all of our conversations, but in reality, they remain the same with family being the core. It’s a very exciting time for the podcast and that’s why we would like to share our thoughts with you, our listeners, who have supported us so much throughout the years. We could not have done it without you!

Law Office of Michael A. Desapio
Have you dreamed of reconnecting with your ancestral homeland by becoming an Italian citizen? Since a change in Italian law has allowed dual citizenship between Italy and the United States, thousands of Italian Americans have done just that. Italian citizenship by descent is granted to those individuals who can prove Italian ancestry (even if through several generations). If you or a family member is interested in pursuing their Italian citizenship, contact the law office of Michael De Sapio for a free consultation to see if you qualify. They are a full-service law firm based in New Jersey that has served clients throughout the United States in assisting with dual citizenship applications. Mike will work with you, and his experienced network of researchers, genealogists and translators both in Italy and the US to guide you through the process. Don’t miss the opportunity to reclaim your right to be an Italian citizen. Contact them at 908-996-6766 or www.desapioesq.com for more information.
