Talking Headways Podcast: 100 Years of Cincinnati’s Incomplete Subway

Jake Mecklenborg, a contributor to Streetsblog Network member Urban Cincy and author of Cincinnati’s Incomplete Subway: The Complete History, joins us this week to talk about Cincinnati’s geography, how a subway would be useful, and why there were numerous attempts to build one.

Tune in and learn about the world events that kept pushing back the construction timeline of the subway, and the politics of stopping it. Some parts of the line still exist today, and Jake tells us what's in store for it in the future.

Join us for a tour through history on the hundredth anniversary of the unfinished Cincinnati subway.
