Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

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

May 12, 2020

This week on the podcast Tracy McMillan of Nelson Nygaard and Chrissy Mancini Nichols of Walker Consultants join the show to talk about density and the coronavirus. Though we end up talking more about institutions because density, while a big current topic, isn't in our minds why the virus is spreading.
