This week we’re joined by Anna Zivarts from Disability Rights Washington and Paulo Nunes-Ueno from Front and Centered. They join us to talk about the Disability Mobility Initiative and the Mobility Bill of Rights. We also chat about why mobility experiments might make travel harder for disabled travelers and why road safety is a core part of civil rights.
This week we’re joined by Shannon Mattern, professor of anthropology at the New School for Social Research, who talks with us about her new book, "A City is Not a Computer: Other Urban Intelligences." We discuss the ideas of smartness versus wisdom, maintenance as a way of absorbing information, and the city as a processing machine.
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."
