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.
As the New Year gets underway, we all turn our attention to the future. But for our guests this week, it is their job to think about the future and its implications for cities and for business.
