Bitch Radio and Audio Smut Present Shortstacks - Habitat: Squatting, Home, and Motherhood

shortstacks logo

Here's the latest Shortstacks podcast from Audio Smut! Taking a ride share back to New York City from a media conference in Detroit, Mitra from Audio Smut met Famous. Famous moved to New York City's Lower East Side in the early '90s and built a home, literally. She was one of a few hundred people who reclaimed and revived the urban landscape of the Lower East Side. She was a squatter. In this Shortstack we hope to dispell myths about squatting and portray how radically the Lower East Side has changed.

A special thanks to our friend Famous for telling her story. For more information about NYC's anti-gentrification movements check out the website for the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space.
