Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Weird is as much a part of Austin as bats, queso and breakfast tacos. The homes of Austin are no different. David J. and Chelle Neff have been exploring and documenting this obscurism in detail and collecting the bizarre to share it with the world. After having already written a book on the subject and creating a homes tour now in five cities and growing, David turns his attention to the exploding medium of podcasting. Produced by Statesman Media, this human interest podcast delves into the homes that carry their unique status as a badge of honor and, more importantly, explores the people that make these houses into homes. It’s the stories, interests, creativity and passion of these guests that truly engages the audience.
