Smart City Radio

If the themes of “Shaping our Towns & Cities” are interesting to you, you might want to check out Smart City Radio. It’s a weekly hourlong public radio talk show that “takes an in-depth look at urban life, the people, places, ideas and trends shaping cities.” For example, under the theme of “sustainable communities” the September 9, 2009 show focused on the architect and urban planner Daniel Burnham, whose “Plan of Chicago” in the early 1900s played a decisive role in the shape of that city. The episode goes on to include a conversation with Avi Friedman, who has thought a lot about the design of sustainable and affordable housing.
