Adelaide (un)Planned is a new podcast exploring design and planning in Adelaide, South Australia - the good, bad and (sometimes) ugly.

What is it that makes our city one of the most liveable in the world? And who's counting anyway?

Brought to you by two passionate and new-ish Adelaidians, each episode features conversations with some of Adelaide's leading thinkers, planners and design professionals, selected for their opinions, insights, stories and (we hope) good humour.

Expect discussion about well-known and changing places, streets and developments, and topical chats about landscape, transport, our environment, civic leadership and more.

Adelaide un(Planned) is a place for discourse about our city's future, in a time when it can be hard to find a forum to hear the whole story, or the back story.

Presented by Michael McKeown and Daniel Bennett. Original theme music by Euan Gray. With thanks to all contributors, and to our colleagues and supporters at Jensen PLUS.
