Held in Common Series 2: Home Truths
The first three episodes in the second series of our Held In Common podcast are now available to listen to here:
In the first episode, Putting Down Roots, Bristol residents and organisations share their individual stories of home and housing in the city and speak about the impact a secure home can have for each of us.
In the second episode, Little Spiders, local people tell their stories of building networks to take collective action on housing in the city - and discuss how an old Irish folk tale reflects on our modern housing system.
In the third episode, Elephants in the Village, Bristol residents and organisations share their bold future visions for Bristol homes and ask different - and sometimes difficult questions - about our housing system. From assumptions we make about our neighbours to calls for the stricter regulation of letting agencies, local people discuss the changes they would like to see and the elephants in the room which they would like acknowledged. We feature residents' burning questions - of each other, of government and of the status quo.
Our next episode is due out on March 15th - a year on from the first lockdown - and is guest-hosted by an Eastville resident who has put together home truths stories from residents on their street during Covid-19.
