Geographical Imaginations

Brief Expeditions into the Geographies of Everything and Nothing

Geographical Imaginations is a public geography project hosted by cultural geographer Kevin S. Fox. This radio essay program presents a geographical ‒ or spatial ‒ way of thinking about the relationship between ourselves and the worlds we inhabit and co-create. Each episode takes a theme or, perhaps, a question and explores it through an interactive dialogue with different texts and voices.
