Introducing PastCast: A New Podcast for People Who Save Places
We're excited to announce the debut episode of PastCast, a show for the people who save places! (Hint: That's you.) Our mission is to bring you great stories of cool preservation projects around the country -- and let the people behind them tell you all about it in their own words.
Segments in this episode include:
- Man on the Street: We take to the streets to ask folks what's on their mind about preservation. This episode's prompt: Does saving places matter? Why or why not?
- Placesavers: We talk with local preservationists around the country doing cool projects. Here we interview Dana Saylor and Meagan Baco, two of the leaders behind I'm Steel Standing, a group formed to protect the Bethlehem Steel Administration Building in Lackawanna, NY.
- Stuff We're Obsessed With: The name says it all -- Jason Clement, David Weible, and I dish on our most recent preservation crushes. And right now we love walkability, the Houston Astrodome, and the adaptively reused Pabst Brewhouse campusin Milwaukee.
- Soundscapes: We take you to the rededication of the Comal County Courthouse in New Braunfels, Texas, as its bells once again echo through the town square.
