LISTEN UP!

In your down time… check out these great podcasts about memorials:

You’ve probably heard of 99 Percent Invisible, the podcast about the myriad of design issues with which we unconsciously live daily.  Brought to a broad, lay audience by the excellent host Roman Mars here are two podcasts about monuments:

The Invisible Monument to Free Speech

Monumental Dilemma about Hannah Duston Monument

(Thanks, Olivia!)

Backstory is a super-nerdy podcast that looks at contemporary questions through the lens of U.S. history. This episode “Monumental Disagreements” features everyone’s favorite memorial historian Kirk Savage!

Presidential is a podcast I have been listening to about the nation’s presidents. It starts with George Washington and works its way forward to the present president. This very early one (#2) on John Adams features the story of his missing monument.

Let us know what you think in the comments and if you find others, post them!
