Last week I highlighted some of the diverse podcasts the library has to offer on it’s website with no library card required. I wanted to discuss some of the other things offered on the Library Podcast page, specifically the variety of discussions on Seattle and Seattle history.
In Fall of 2019, the Library hosted discussions on the hidden history of the Space Needle, including Space Needle Redux: Knute Berger and B.J. Bullert Eye the Needle.
Also in 2019, the comic artist behind The Seattle Walk Report shared their favorite hidden and forgotten things of Seattle’s neighborhoods in an interview and Q & A with Paul Constant from The Seattle Review of Books.
In 2018, the library hosted a critical discussion of the rapid changes in Seattle’s neighborhoods called People’s Geographies.
2017 saw a two-part discussion of Seattle’s single-family residence architecture from 1800-2000 with historian Jeffrey Karl Ochsner.
In 2016, as part of the Streetwise Revisited event, panelists gathered to discuss a historical perspective of homelessness in Seattle through Mary Ellen Mark’s documentary film, Tiny: The Life of Erin Blackwell.
These are just some of the great podcasts on local history, be sure to check out the rest of our podcast offerings.
