Plot of Land

Plot of Land is a podcast series from Monument Lab that explores how land ownership and housing in the United States have been shaped by the entrenched interplay of power, public memory, and privatization. Over the last year, Monument Lab has assembled a team of Plot of Land storytellers and reporters to explore the invisible forces that shape both the land and story of this country. Racial capitalism, exploitation, and extraction have paralyzed our imaginations. We believe that to build the future we deserve, there must be a radical change in our approaches to policy and practice. Join us to remap and rethink land ownership today. 

Major support for Plot of Land has been provided by the Ford Foundation.
