TMBA388: Why We Need Strong Towns

Podcast 47:09 | Download | Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

In some ways, Dan and Ian have used this show as a means to explore different places, although never in quite the same way as today’s guest.

Chuck Marohn is the president of a nonprofit organization called Strong Towns. Through that work Chuck has helped create a framework for how our cities and towns can become financially stronger and more prosperous.

Today’s podcast is an inspiring, and perhaps controversial, conversation about what kinds of towns and cities we want to live in, and what those places might look like in the future.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • How Chuck first learned about the infrastructure problem in the United States. (5:50)
  • Why modern American engineering has revolved around cars. (11:23)
  • What kind of relationships developers have with the towns that they work in. (19:52)
  • Why Chuck believes that Detroit is an example of the direction that most American cities are headed. (24:57)
  • How Chuck got started with Strong Towns and what his vision is for the future of the project. (42:01)
