As that old Captain and Tenille song says “Love Will Keep Us Together” but Smart City is finding out how love can also be a primary economic driver for cities. My guest Larry Beasley is the founder of Beasley and Associates, an international planning consultancy. Larry will tell us about planning cities based around an emotional response.

And we’ll find out how to make the world a better place with Jonathan Greenblatt. Jonathan runs the organization and he’ll tell us about the new venture which he describes as a Craigslist for social good.

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 so you can listen to it anytime you like. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
