Announcing the Launch of the Passive House Podcast

August 18, 2020


We at Passive House Accelerator are excited to announce the launch of…<drumroll please>…the Passive House Podcast, co-hosted by Matthew Cutler-Welsh and myself. Based in New Zealand, Matthew is a longtime communicator and advocate for high performance buildings. He serves as Education Manager at Pro Clima NZ and is the founder and creative force behind the website and podcast, Home Style Green.

A few months ago, Matthew reached out to the Accelerator with the idea for a new podcast focused on Passive House projects, practitioners, and inspiration. We were all in. After lots of cross-planetary Zoom meetings, Matthew guided us through the planning and production process to make the podcast a reality. Thank you, too, to our audio journalism intern, Sydney Fishman, for her talents and work in making it happen.

We’re grateful to partner with Matthew on this new weekly series and are eager to share the many interviews we already have “in the can” with the Passive House Accelerator community. We plan to publish a new episode each Monday.

Our introductory episode features a conversation with Matthew, Passive House Accelerator founder Michael Ingui, and myself.

Catch our introductory Passive House Podcast episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or your favorite podcast platform.

Thank you to our Founding Sponsors for making the Passive House Podcast and our other programming possible: Baxt Ingui Architects, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US, RDH Building Science, Sto Corp, and Zola Windows. Thank you, too, to our Stakeholder Partner, NYSERDA.
