the host of the host of "The Works" in his recording studio

Back in February I started an experiment.

After years of listening to podcasts I decided to try my hand at producing one myself. I invested in some recording equipment, set up a recording booth in my closet and went to work. In the ten months that followed I sought to tell some of the stories behind the buildings that define our lives. Each episode was a little different and I'd like to think each was a little better than the last. Episode 10 has just been released and I think it's one of the best yet.

It tells the story of how a century ago Dallas city leaders sought to build a plaza to memorialize their history. They did this, but then something happened that forever changed how that plaza was understood. So if you're on your way to or from work and have 18 minutes to spare, have a listen. I think you'll come away from the experience looking at something you though you knew in a completely different way.

And don't gorget to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Season Two will be here before you know it...
