These podcasts, Albertopolis on Air, offer encounters with a few of the experts and characters who populate and illuminate the area. Alongside the map you can use this podcast to navigate Albertopolis (and our book); wander amongst its re-written, seemingly ossified, sometimes challenging spaces, allow its coordinates to tug at your sleeve, and make your own way.
Produced by Nina Kock. Edited by Benjamin D. Harvey, Elizabeth Holdsworth, Jeremy Atherton Lin & Nina Kock.Full version of the podcast is available here
