    19/07/2019 Duração: 40min

    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.

    18/07/2019 Duração: 45min

    This podcast series is all about us listening to the stories of people living in Cape Town who have been affected in some way by land. So many times we can talk about land in dry academic, legal or financial terms. But when we lean in and listen to real lives, our hearts are softened to the reality and experience that we may be completely unaware of. We hope that you have conversations with friends, colleagues and neighbours to better grapple with the heart of the matter of land in South Africa. If this is your first podcast in this series, just a disclaimer: every story and situation is unique. We are not trying to represent anybody else’s story other than our storytellers.

    As we grapple with the big topic of land in South Africa, we have to be listening to the stories of people who have been affected by this. It is so easy to get caught up in political statements, economics, legal arguments and statistics. The big idea about this podcast series is to help us listen to people in our midst. We want to hear the heart of this matter and allow it to shape our response. Now we can’t interview every person and we know that every story and situation is unique. So we are not trying to summarize every story, or draw generalizations from one to another. Instead, we are simply listening, learning and engaging. Welcome to the Living Social Justice podcast series on Land.
