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.
- Since the opening of Millennium Park in Chicago, parks have become the hottest urban amenity. But Char Miller, director of urban studies at Trinity University reminds us that this is the second golden age of parks. Bold civic visions in the 19th century gave us the great parks we enjoy today. We'll find out what we can learn from that earlier era that can lead to better parks for cities today.
- And we'll talk to Ben Shields who is tracking the elusive sports fan and how urban entertainment marketers can find their audience. Ben is co-author of The Elusive Fan: Reinventing Sports in a Crowded Marketplace and he is a frequent media commentator and speaker on the sports marketing industry.
