This Week On Smart City: Alan Mallach And Donald Johanson

This week on Smart City, the wave of foreclosures hitting many American cities are challenging many communities to wonder, “What’s next?” Can these neighborhoods be revived? And if so, what will it take? Those are questions we’ll ask Alan Mallach whose new report on Managing Neighborhood Change comes just at the time when many communities are needing that help.

And we’ll also talk about a subject that may at first seem far removed from cities, but actually is at their center. Our guest is Dr. Donald Johanson, a paleo-anthropologist whose discovery 30 years ago of Lucy set him on a life-long study of human evolution.

Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.

Smart City is broadcast at 6 a.m. Saturday and Sundays on WKNO-FM, but it is also webcast and podcast. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
