curb cuts were a big fight on Beacon Hill a few years ago, because they're not "historic"

Hearing you discuss your book, I’m reminded of Ben Katchor’s masterful comics that often illustrate the hidden workings within buildings, neighborhoods, and neighbors. katcher.com

even public spaces can be managed by BIDs (Business Improvement Districts)
Ethan Pepin
01:11:52
businesses will band together and pay taxes to the BID to provide city services businesses feel are lacking (such as, say, private security)

What does the growth in the 'amazon culture' mean for cities, design, and walkability? Have the possibilities changed with the pandemic and remote shopping patterns?
Meghan R. Tenhoff
01:25:34
Me too!
Ethan Pepin
01:26:39
Podcasting is an inherently auditory medium, yet visuals are a huge aspect of design. How do you deal with this challenge, and are there any examples where you felt constrained by the format?
Ethan Pepin

For Lily + Kurt
Barbara Carr

Our city only allows deliveries in a certain period of time.
Elizabeth Hammond
01:33:12
what are some of the ways we can encourage/retain walkability in our communities? Especially as you get out of urban centers.
Elizabeth Hammond
01:36:53
lol, no one has great answers!
Elizabeth Hammond
01:37:52
(this question comes from contemplating moving to the suburbs and being appalled at the lack of sidewalks out there)
Becky Eidelman
01:38:07
Elizabeth, I’m in the same boat as you!
Elizabeth Hammond
01:38:39
(I just want to be able to get a dog and walk it without being in the street!!!)
Allie & Jessika
01:38:55
I’ve been researching the opportunity to build up pedestrian infrastructure between residential areas and grocery stores—which, I’m biased here, I believe is a great place to start!
