I’m Lainy Malkani and welcome to the Social History Hub Podcast.
In every episode I’ll be exploring the nature of social history and what it means to us today with an exciting line up of artists, entrepreneurs, academics and writers. They’ll share their stories and relive the moments and events that inspired them.
Coming up, the story of an extraordinary occupation that took place over thirty years ago to improve housing for homeless people in London. It was sparked by the tragic death of a family living in temporary accommodation. Here’s Liz Smale who helped lead the protest.
This week I spoke to housing professional, Liz Smale about Occupation 84, an extraordinary protest to help homeless families.
Next time on the Social History Hub podcast I’ll be talking to specialist cancer nurse, Suresh Rambaran about his role in ensuring cancer care is available to all. That’s next time on the Social History Hub podcast, join me if you can.
