The Strong Sense of Place Podcast: Season Two Launches 24 August

Monday, 17 August, 2020

We’re so excited to share our new season of the Strong Sense of Place podcast with you! We’ve planned a virtual journey to six continents with side excursions for a fall holiday, a train trip, and library love.

Paris and Alaska are in the can, but we’re still in production for the rest of the season. If there are books you think we should read or something that particularly piques your curiosity about any of the destinations below, we invite you to tell us all about it.
