Episode 36 - Walking Around

October 13th, 2016

By nature we are innately curious as human beings. Exploration is in our genes. And what better world to explore than our own cities, beckoning us from the doorstep? In literature there seems to be an absence of women 'wandering' the streets as contemplative observers. At the very mention of women wandering the streets did it paint a negative picture in your mind? Why is that?

We discuss this and more in this week's episode. Our discussion stems from a book featured in The Guardian called Flaneuse: Women Walk the City by Lauren Elkin. 

To all the other flaneuses out there!
Enjoy!
Presented by Kate Mulholland, Cathy Clarke and Máire Brophy. This episode was produced by Kate Mulholland.
