About Placecloud

Welcome to Placecloud. Placecloud hosts short podcasts (“viewpoints”) on the places around you. Viewpoints can focus on historic buildings, quirky locations, hidden gems, of the world around you, so that you can discover new places to visit.

Everyone can contribute viewpoints, but we have a special place in our heart for historians, writers, artists, certified city guides and other experts. Viewpoints from experts are more visible on our platform.

Placecloud was founded by George Fort in 2019. The platform was created by Babak Fakhamzadeh.
In 2023, walk · listen · create (WLC), the home of walking artists and artist walkers, took responsibility of Placecloud. Babak is one of the founders of walk · listen · create, ensuring continuation and consistency for the Placecloud platform.
