Here There Be Dragons (HTBD) is a podcast and new media thesis project on the ways in which fear, anxiety, and insecurity change resident perceptions of public space in cities and their use of these spaces. This season of HTBD centers the experiences of thirty-two natives, transplants, and immigrants to the Parisian region (Paris, France and its surrounding suburbs). This season features eight twenty to thirty minute episodes, which collage together overlapping concerns of the residents. Each episode has a theme ranging from terrorism and public policy to gentrification, social codes, and urban design. Each episode also includes interviews with several researchers to highlight social, cultural, and political nuances that are emphasized by residents' experiences. The project also features a website (htbdpodcast.com) with supportive materials for listeners, such as a glossary of terms, readings, and a newsletter. The written thesis chronicles the methods and processes used to realize the podcast and concludes with reflections on the value of podcasting for urban design and planning.
