Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

The Talking Headways podcast is a weekly podcast about transportation and urban design.

Aug 30, 2018

This week on the podcast it's our 200th episode!!!! We have a bit of a dance party in the intro before getting to the good stuff. We read in full "Urbanism as a Way of Life" by Louis Wirth from the Journal of Sociology in 1938.  The piece is introduced by Dr. Lisa Schweitzer, a professor at USC Sol Price School of Public Policy who believes this piece and others sometimes get overshadowed by Jane Jacobs. So let us change that shall we? I really hope you enjoy this episode.  If you do please send us an email at
