Preservation made interesting
Great podcast, focusing on heritage preservation, and history. Clint Tankersley with the help of his guests tackles current issues in these fields. A must listen!
Wonderful podcast about saving saving historic places.
I have listened to the first episode in the series and it was very interesting and informative. I learned quite a bit about social media and how to use it to advocate for preservation. Overall great podcast.
