This Week On Smart City: Best of 2008

2008 was a great year for cities until the economic crisis overtook us all. On Smart City we talked to more than 100 of the best thinkers and doers who are working to make cities great. To close out the year, we're reprising some of my favorite guests to share their wisdom on how to make 2009 a better year for cities.

From the entrepreneurial spirit of Bryant Park Corporation's Dan Biederman to Ed Glaeser's riveting historical view of cities, and from fascinating trends like Alan Ehrenhalt's demographic inversion to the green initiatives of Seattle brought to us by Mayor Greg Nickels, we've got the best of the best on this week's show.

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 so you can listen to it anytime you like. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
