I'm Stephen Beard. I'm the host of Accessible Housing Matters. I'm a real estate agent and Accessibility Specialist. I created this podcast to help raise awareness about accessibility issues and housing. This website is for fans of the podcast. It’s all about connecting people with unique knowledge or expertise about housing and accessibility.
Listen weekly as I interview people from all walks of life about their ideas and experiences in the intersection of accessibility and housing.
Imagine a radio show you can listen to when you want and where you want.
That’s a podcast!
You can listen anytime, pause in the middle if you get interrupted, and listen from wherever you are with your phone or smart speaker.

You’ll be able to listen even if you don’t have internet service!
So how do you subscribe to a podcast service? And which one? Here’s a simple guide:
ITunes This is Apple’s podcast service. It is by far the most popular. It’s a purple icon that is usually pre-installed on your Apple phone.

Step 4. Once on the “Accessible Housing Matters” page appears, press the Subscribe button. This is free and will keep you from missing any new episode that we post.·
Step 5. The most recent episode may download automatically, but you can be sure you have all the episodes by clicking the download icon (cloud with down arrow) next to each episode. This is also free, and will allow you to listen to all the episodes right away.·
Step 6. You can view and play all of those episodes by clicking the Unplayed icon in the bottom left of the screen, which displays any downloaded episode that you haven’t listened to yet.·
