Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

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

Sep 22, 2022

This week we’re joined by Billie Giles-Corti, Director of the Healthy Livable Cities Lab at RMIT,  Melanie Lowe of the University of Melbourne, and Geoff Boeing of USC to talk about their papers in The Lancet Global Health series on Urban Design, Transport, and Health. They chat about the importance of walkability to public health, why Sao Paulo Brazil connects policy and outcomes so well, and how cities can use the detailed indicators they’ve created including bus stop and intersection density to fill policy gaps that lead to positive health outcomes.

You can find the papers at The Lancet Global Health

or visit The Global Observatory of Healthy and Sustainable Cities
