Talking Headways Podcast: Crown Prince of Fresh Air

What would you think of a city planner, out ruffling feathers with his bold ideas about density and urbanism — who commutes to work an hour each way from his ranch way outside the city ? Ironic — or hypocritical? That’s the question we wrestle with in our discussion of Brad Buchanan, the head honcho at Denver’s Department of Community Planning and Development.
And then we head from Denver to Dallas, where MPO chief Michael Morris has unilaterally declared  that the plan to convert I-345 into a boulevard  is going nowhere. Trouble is, he doesn’t actually have the authority to say that, and his facts are wrong. But by asserting it, will he make it true?
