Greg Fuson and Sandra Kulli are the people behind The Vine, an annual west coast gathering of creative architects, builders, thinkers and artists. Their topic at this year’s Vine Conference is the nature of community.

We’ll also speak with Ruth Otte and Clifford Young. Together they’ve produced an invaluable survey for urban enthusiasts that uncovers what people around the world like and dislike about their cities. Cliff is Senior Vice President for Ipsos Public Affairs and Ruth is the Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Veolia Transportation.

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.
