A few weeks ago, Planetizen put out a call for nominees for the title of "Most Influential Urbanist," and via Facebook, Twitter, and email, our audience produced almost 200 nominees.

We also congratulate the numerous friends and members of Strong Towns who are on the list, especially our partner in crime, Joe Minicozzi. Please take some time to learn about these fantastic people and give them your support. Many have been featured on the Strong Towns Podcast previously so check out our archives if you want to get to know them better.
