Talking Headways Podcast: Welcome to the Fresh Coast!

podcast icon logo

This week I chat with Jeramey Jannene of Streetsblog Network blog Urban Milwaukee.

Jeramey discusses freeway teardowns, freeway expansion, the new bike-share system, the transit funding situation in the city, the city’s streetcar plans, and the city’s really high weighted density.

And we talk about water. Milwaukee is becoming the "Fresh Coast," an innovative place for studying a really precious resource. Jeramey talks about how the Great Lakes Compact gives Milwaukee leverage over other cities, the innovation of the first greywater street in the United States, and the amazing water-based innovation cluster that has popped up in the city.

So join us in the Freshwater Capital of the World.
