We talk about all the new streets babies that have been born recently which leads to a discussion about living in cities with kids. We also ponder why people are writing articles about leaving cities like London and Los Angeles.

Traveling to the Pacific Northwest we discuss Seattle’s new Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA). We talk about single family zoning in the report as well as changes to parking restrictions. We also discuss the recent New Yorker article on the Cascadia Subduction Zone and how wherever you live in the United States you have to deal with natural disasters.

Join us for a fun discussion on Talking Headways.
