Podcast: Tom Murtha on How Social Housing saved his life, and giving a platform to views of a certain kind

Tom Murtha, a well-respected senior figure in the social housing movement, caused a few waves recently when he twice walked out on speakers at the Homes for Britain rally. So, for my latest Podcast, I wanted to ask him why he did this, and why he thinks giving platforms to people with certain views is potentially damaging to the housing sector.

Podcast – Talking to Phil Jewitt about the Sociable Organisation

This is the first in what may be a series of podcasts in which I talk to people whose work I particularly admire about some aspect of what they are doing.

In this podcast, I met up with Phil Jewitt, Senior Communications Manager, with Leeds City Council, to get some insights into the Sociable Organisation project which he is leading. This is a project which is using social media to drive collaboration and co-creation, both within the city council, and across the city involving partners.

There are some lovely stories in here which illustrate the point I make continually that telling stories usually has more impact that quoting statistics and writing reports.

Please let me have any comments below.
