Critical & Conversational podcast
September 2020 – ongoing
These conversations’ intent is to cultivate neighbourliness, mutual responsibility, and a plurality of understandings of place by honoring an oral tradition of storytelling. The Mapping East Van podcast is mapping through deliberate subjectivity, listening to, questioning, and connecting with the specific understandings of place that each guest holds.
Podcast cover image descriptions are available via Soundcloud and the Mapping East Van website, most written transcripts are available while some are in progress.
The rest of Mapping East Van can be explored through the Mapping East Van website. All of this has been a collaborative effort, please check out each work for full credits as the list of attributions constantly growing!
