Coliving just recently became the hottest real estate trend according to PWC. That's great news - well, if you find the news in the first place. So what's up with that - how do you easily find coliving news?
I highly believe that commercial coliving is a new phenomenon and that knowledge will be required to be part of the coliving era. Those who will ride the rave will be those who understand the trend and find the weak spots behind the complexity of running coliving spaces.
I compiled below the main news sources that I use internally to curated content for my weekly Coliving Cocktail newsletter.
If you don't want to do the digging yourself, let me send you a weekly summary of what's going on in the coliving world - but if you're curious to dig deeper, those will be the to-go resources for your journey.

Top Coliving Podcast
While I'm thinking about launching a podcast on coliving (the objective would be to dismantle coliving knowledge à la Tim Ferriss), there are currently four podcasts definitely worth listening to.
The Coliving Code Show (50+ episodes) is run by Christine McDannell who interviews not only coliving operators, but also other coliving players such as investors and real estate owners. You can also find it on iTunes.
TheDislocation Podcast explores the way in which technology changes the way in which assets are planned, designed, financed, built, marketed, and operated.
Change Order is a recently launched podcast portraying innovation trends in housing.
