GREAT SHOW!

Love that this show spans beyond topics on gentrification, etc. Show does a really great job of intersexting various other topics and how they relate to our cities and towns we live in. Listen to this while doing homework. Always leaves me thinking about the world & my neighborhood in a different way.

Great for urban studies buffs

This podcast series is well produced. The stories are interesting, human and honest. If you like stories about urban spaces and urban planning, I haven't found a better podcast. If you like good story telling period, this is for you.

My only complaint? I've listened to all of them and don't know when they'll be adding more!
