Littoral Space is a podcast that explores social, cultural, and environmental topics using a geographical lens. Each episode is a conversations with a person who has experiences and expertise in an area of interest that provides a distinct insight into the world around us. I use Littoral – an adjective, relating to or situated on the shore of the sea or a lake – as a metaphor from a zone of convergence and change, a liminal space in which fluid understandings emerge and positive impact is encouraged.

The podcast is available through Soundcloud, iTunesSpotify, and Stitcher.
