PreserveCast Ep. 40: Colin Dickey’s Ghostland and the PreserveCast Spooktacular
October 9, 2017
As preservationists, we here at PreserveCast are usually concerned with the physical history; what we can know from the cold hard facts. But seeing as how it’s October and Halloween is around the corner, we thought we’d talk a little about haunted history. Author Colin Dickey joined me to talk about the history of ghost stories and share what we can learn from the places that scare us. The conversation ranges all the way from Silicon Valley to Richmond Virginia on this, the first ever PreserveCast Spooktacular!

Author Richard Rothstein says the housing programs begun under the New Deal were tantamount to a "state-sponsored system of segregation," in which people of color were purposely excluded from suburbs.
Episode #6 of the Boing Boing Boing podcast is ready for downloading. Our guest for this edition is author Steven Johnson, whose new book "The Ghost Map" my blog-mate Pesco describes as:
An account of an 1854 cholera outbreak on London’s Broad Street [and]
a magnificent combination of science thriller, cultural history, and celebration of cartography as a powerful tool to help us understand the dynamics of urban life.
Cory, Pesco and I talk with our guest about a slew of recent BoingBoing topics (Boy Scout MPAA badges, Borat vs. Mahir, Paul Allen’s Brain Atlas, and Kevin Poulsen’s MySpace hack), and about another big new release from Steven: Outside.in, a tool for participating in the online conversations taking place about your community within your community.
