Lean In, Listen InCommon Good
This podcast series is all about us getting a better understanding of the lived reality of people in Cape Town and their experience of land and space. So many times, the topic of land can be spoken about at a head level, quoting facts and statistics. Other times, it is so emotive that people switch off when engaging. So we want to listen to people’s stories to help us understand the heart of the matter from people who have first hand experience of this.
Now we know that we can’t interview every person, and every story and situation is unique. We are not trying to summarize every story into a few. Nor are our storytellers trying to represent anybody else other than themselves.
