The podcast will once again be hosted by Christopher Kissane, a historian and writer from Kerry, currently an Editorial Fellow with History Workshop.

Series 2 kicks off with Episode 1. Living Room, which considers the country’s chronic housing crisis in the company of three of Ireland’s most prominent voices on the issue, all of whom have “taken up arms” to tackle the crisis and bring about change. Rory Hearne, Assistant Professor of Social Policy at Maynooth University; Orla Hegarty, Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy at University College Dublin; and architect Rob Curley consider how our housing system became so broken, and what we can do to fix it. 

Episode one is live now - listen in.

NEW EPISODES WILL BE LIVE EVERY TUESDAY

About Us

IRELAND’S EDGE is a multidisciplinary creative event series that makes up a distinct strand of Other Voices festival of music and ideas. At Ireland's Edge, we believe the best version of our future will only be realised by fruitful collaborations and collisions between the arts, technology, innovation, storytelling and human experience. We regard it as imperative that culture be given a central role as we try to plan creatively and effectively for the future. We come from an edge that is simultaneously physical, sectorial, rural and metaphorical. From the edge, you can experiment, you can play, you can innovate, you can disrupt.

OTHER VOICES - THE BROADER CANVAS

Other Voices started as a one-off music event in a small church in the west of Ireland and over the last 15 years the idea has grown. Other Voices is now an established fixture in the musical calendar – a ‘must attend’ event for performers and audiences alike. Other Voices has led to the creation of an international music TV series and the filming of that series subsequently became a music festival, a tourism event in its own right that celebrates the local on a global scale. While the stellar quality of the music at Other Voices continues to reach ever higher levels, Other Voices is a constantly evolving and innovating force in the world of music events and cultural activism, constantly exploring and experimenting multi-dimensionally across content programming, event formats and distribution channels
