May podcast celebrates the “great good place”

DSC_0242

This month, our audio explorations take you, the listener, to those wonderful locations in a community that provide the social benefits and neighborhood-building amenities crucial to a thriving town: the great, good place (or third place).

Home is the “first place” – the domestic part of a life.

Work is the “second place” – the productive part of a life.

The coffee shop, the pub, the salon, the library – these are the “third places” – the social part of a life in a community.
