Great show

Light-hearted conversation with depth and a few laughs along the way. Although the focus is on the planning/engineering (plangineer) profession, the issues Muneef, Michelle and Rob tackle are common to any workplace. There's a little something for everyone - tune in!

I love this Podcast Show

I enjoy listening in and learning more about the rules and roles of our communities Engineers and Planners. We get the opportunity to enter the minds and conversations of the very people who are behind the community infrastructure and city influence . The show helps us have better understanding and teaches us some useful fundamentals that we can use within our own businesses or lives . Thanks for this Podcast - I’m a fan of the show , and look forward to what will be the next subject . If your looking for a show that is Fun , Informative, and diverse - tune in and Enjoy .

Wow, Wow, Wow! A must listen...

I am not a civil engineer, or a planner. In fact I can barely hang of picture straight. However, this podcast draws you in and deals with contemporary cross-sector issues that impact our society as a whole. Along the way you happen to learn some pretty cool facts about planning and civil engineering, but its the beautiful way the guests and host (Muneef) tackle issues such as the role of women in industry and the tension that exists between the qualitative and quantitative roles of their industry that is rare to find in a podcast. If you want to expand your mind....listen!
