Preservation Podcasts Highlighted by National Trust For Historic Preservation

Cynthia Kracauer

As part of an effort to celebrate Preservation Month during the month of May, Cynthia Kracauer, AIA, joins the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s podcast event for women leading the field of historical podcasting. Kracauer is executive director of the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF), and host of the podcast New Angle:Voice.

During the live-recorded event hosted as part of Preservation Month, Kracauer shares her perspective from her rapidly-growing new podcast series New Angle:Voice. New Angle:Voice is a historical podcast that details the incredible and often forgotten lifeworks of female architects and designers over the years. In the podcast Kracauer delves into the remarkable professional accomplishments, as well as the sometimes racy personal lives, of a collection of truly fascinating and groundbreaking women in the fields of architecture and design.

Focusing on a theme of “people saving places,” this years preservation month initiative aims to platform the voices and to celebrate the work of individuals who are dedicated to preserving our history. Joining Kracauer for the Podcasts for Preservation event will be the voices and extraordinary work of three other female podcasters, who will delve into the power of creating community and cultivating admiration for the places and things that deserve to be protected for the future: Rita Cofield of the Save As podcast, Joan Cummins creator the Q&Abe podcast, and Deqah Hussein-Wetzel who is co-host and producer of the podcast Urban Roots.

BWAF strives to use education and research to create change in the industry of design and construction, and to open it further to women. In her work as executive director for BWAF, Kracauer is a consummate advocate for the remembrance and celebration of important women from our shared history. She is also an enthusiastic supporter of the preservation efforts from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and is excited to contribute to their legacy of protecting our collective history.
