Traveling this holiday season? Load up your phone or media player with some landscape architecture-related podcasts. Here are some favorites from the Landscape Architecure Foundation.

America Adapts
The America Adapts podcast explores the challenges, approaches, and national movement around adapting to climate change. In episode 54, host Doug Parsons attended the recent 2017 American Association of Landscape Architects (ASLA) conference and discovered the burgeoning role of landscape architecture in adaptation planning. Doug interviewed a wide swath of landscape architects, including LAF CEO Barbara Deutsch. From living legend Martha Schwartz to students just entering the field, listen in for insights and advice on how landscape architecture is stepping up to the challenge of adaptation.

Common Edge Podcast
Common Edge is a non-profit organization dedicated to reconnecting architecture and design with the public that it’s meant to serve. They produce editorials, interviews, and podcasts. We especially like their July podcast on Landscape Architecture in the Age of Climate Change, which features Brooklyn-based firm, Local Office Landscape Architecture (LOLA) discussing the relationship between science and design, the difference between sustainability and resilience, and how the firm became an advisor to the Obama Administration.

Homeland Lab
Now with 13 episodes, the Homeland Lab podcast is an initiative of LAF Fellow Brice Maryman, whose work explores the intersection of public space and homelessness. The podcast features a diversity of perspectives — politicians, people who have experienced homelessness, designers, researchers, public space managers — to help foster a more nuanced and productive understanding about the profound relationship between homelessness and public space.
