A little while ago, Dan ready an article called Cities and Ambition by Paul Graham which theorizes that the cities we visit actually send signals to us in a variety of unspoken ways.
Afterward, he felt compelled to write a blog post about the ways that certain cities “whisper” to us.
On today’s episode, you will hear that blog post, as well as some thoughts and reflections on some of our favorite cities.
We’ll be sharing what we love about those cities, why we can’t stop visiting them, and what each of those cities has been “whispering” to us. And we’d love to hear from you about what different cities whisper to you.
