Faculty of Architecture launches new Podcast to celebrate ideas, design and culture
The Cultural Events at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Manitoba is pleased to announce a new podcast station entitled PRAIRIE DESIGN LAB.
We are excited to announce Terry MacLeod, the former host of the CBC’s Information Radio of Winnipeg, as the main host of the podcast. Terry, as the ‘voice of the community’, will render the podcast more accessible to a wider audience. His journalistic expertise will also contribute deeply in the programming and production of the episodes.
UMFM 101.5, the official campus and community radio station of the University of Manitoba, will collaborate in the distribution of the podcast. PDL’s weekly episodes will be featured through one of the regular programs of UMFM. Prairie Design Lab, performing as one of the main channels to platform the lecture series at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Manitoba (Cultural Events) during the pandemic, will cover a range of conversations centered around design and ideas. It will aim to connect the regional (and the school’s) interests with the broader community and to reflect on the issues while conversing with the experts and audiences within the larger/global context.
Prairie Design Lab is supported by the Endowment Fund of the Faculty of Architecture University of Manitoba, the Partner’s Program, and the student and faculty volunteers and is available on Spotify and Apple iTunes.
