Pittsburgh is the nation’s surprising comeback city. From its industrial past, Pittsburgh has become a city of Eds and Meds, with an unexpected focus on the environment. My guests today are part of the green transformation underway in Pittsburgh.
Scott Bricker runs Bike Pittsburgh, an organization committed to making Pittsburgh’s streets increasingly safe and accessible for cyclists.
Erik Lingren and Sean Brady run Venture Outdoors, an organization promoting outdoor recreation in Pittsburgh. Their work is a model for urban environmentalism and is at the heart of the strategy to make Pittsburgh “buzz-worthy.”
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.
