Talking Headways Podcast: Does Your Street Bring You Joy?

This week, we taped our show live at the Brooklyn Podcast Festival, chatting with Ryan Westrom of Greenfield Labs and Ford Smart Mobility. Westrom discusses his report, Design Principals for Living Streets, and the history of on-street storage of private vehicles in the public right-of-way (euphemistically called “parking” by drivers). Audience members were asked to give their favorite streets, and I threw in a little Marie Kondo for good measure.

This week we’re joined by Miami of Ohio Geography Professor David Prytherch. Prytherch chats with us about his recent journal article in Urban Geography: "Reimagining the physical/social infrastructure of the American street."  We talk about businesses' newfound interest in the street, equity and ethical discussions about rights to the street, and the new pandemic paradigm of "open streets."
