This week Chuck has a long overdue conversation with Patrick Kennedy, an urban designer advocating for more walkable/bikable neighborhoods in one of the country's most car-focused cities.
I've been trying to place the Strong Towns message in historical counterparts. I want to know in which other context these ideas emerged, who led them, how, and how did it turn out.
John Oliver is a comedian in the court jester genre: speaking truth to power.
It is interesting to look back and read what people thought a couple generations ago and how their thinking shapes our world today.
Strong Towns members' blogs engage issues of who benefits from the way our cities are built and run, who loses out, and how a local government or developer's actions reveal its true priorities.
I hope to be back in force tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.
