Smart City is a weekly, hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life, the people, places, ideas and trends shaping cities. Host Carol Coletta talks with national and international public policy experts, elected officials, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others for a penetrating discussion of urban issues.

This weekend...
  • If losing weight is one of your New Year's resolutions, you may want to consider moving. According to Reid Ewing, a research professor at the National Center for Smart Growth, where you live may have a lot to do with how much you weigh. Reid's study of sprawl and obesity in American youth appeared in the December 2006 issue of American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
  • Also with us is Todd Litman, founder and executive director of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute, who challenges all conventional wisdom on how we ought to be getting around our cities. Todd is author of the Online TDM Encyclopedia, a comprehensive Internet resource for identifying and evaluating mobility management strategies.
Listen to host Carol Colletta - list of additional stations/times - 3pm on Saturday and 7pm Sunday on WNED - 970 in Buffalo, NY. Past Shows are archived and the newsletter is published regularly.
Smart City is underwritten by Buffalo, NY's own Hyde Family Foundation...thanks George!

Thanks for the reminder! I just happened to open this page at 3:01pm, and am about to hear Smart City!

Well, no I'm not - they are playing "Bob Edwards Weekend", instead. WNED now has Smart City only at 7pm, Sunday. Darn.

But I downloaded this week's program, and am hearing it in fairly hi-fi. hehe
