Podcasts exploring The Messy City
At the close of 2018, I was fortunate to be a guest on two podcasts. I explored a range of topics with both hosts, but largely talked about the challenges our communities face today, the notion of a messy city - what it is and why it’s important - and balancing top-down and bottom-up action.
The first podcast is with Kevin Shepherd, who has a firm in Texas called Verdunity. Kevin is a civil engineer, and someone I’ve met in the Strong Towns and CNU worlds. His firm is doing great work pushing the envelope to bring new solutions to age-old issues. “Embracing the Messy City”
The second podcast is with Stig Terrebonne who has a relatively new podcast called “Human City.” I’ve not met Stig in person, but enjoyed our conversation and am honored to be in such strong company with his other guests.
I hope you give them both a listen, and support people trying to bring you thoughtful content on the internet and through the airwaves.
As we embark on a new year, I have a long list of upcoming posts that I hope will challenge and inspire you. Please feel free to reach out to me any time with comments, critiques and issues you wish I’d explore.
