Online Podcast Launch: “If Glasgow’s Walls Could Talk”

Thursday 28th October 2021 | 7.30pm BST | via Zoom

Curious about our new podcast? Join us to celebrate its launch as the first two episodes go live!

This event will consist of a quick presentation about the thinking behind “If Glasgow’s Walls Could Talk”, followed by GCHT Community Engagement Officer Silvia Scopa in conversation with podcast host, GCHT Deputy Director Niall Murphy. They will be chatting about the podcast and some of the stories that feature in the episodes, and playing some exclusive audio content. 

“If Glasgow’s Walls Could Talk” is a ten episode series that explores the relationships, stories and shared memories that exist between Glasgow’s historic buildings and places and the city’s communities. Each episode focuses on a specific area, type of building or aspect of Glasgow’s heritage, not only from an architectural history point of view, but also from the perspective of the community. Niall was joined by special guests for each episode, who shared their personal experiences, thoughts, knowledge and memories. 

Podcast listeners will have the chance to learn about the mapping of queer heritage with Dr Jeffrey Meek from Glasgow University, to hear a discussion about heritage spaces and disabilities with Accessibility Consultant Emily Rose Yates, and to go on a virtual night out with Norry Wilson from Lost Glasgow, with stop offs at some well known historic music venues! Other topics include tenement living, murals and historic cinemas.
