Across 2019 Athena Media is anchoring a new podcast sharing conversations and stories about how we shape and create great places to live. The podcast series This is Where we Live has been inspired by the continued housing and homelessness crisis in Irish cities, particularly Dublin, and began when Athena Media producer Helen Shaw visited Vienna last December for a Housing for All conference. (Read Helen’s blog essay on the visit and why Vienna is a public housing model for Europe).
The interviews she collected there seeded the new podcast series which has grown rapidly across 2019 with interviews with:
Dr Ellen Rowley, Architectural Historian on 14 Henrietta Street, the Tenement Museum.
