Smart City talks this week to Gaylynn Burroughs. She’s a Staff attorney at the Family Defense Practice at the Bronx Defenders in New York City. She’s written an article for the spring issue of Ms. Magazine that describes a disturbing trend in the foster care system.

In addition, Smart City will speak with Eddie Friel. Eddie Friel was the Chief Executive of the Greater Glasgow Tourism Board. We’ll find out how he transformed the reputation of Glasgow, Scotland, from a grimy industrial town into one of Europe’s most fashionable cities.

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.
