Show Notes

Don’t listen to people who say our problems are too big to solve. We're here to set the narrative straight on a new podcast from Next City.  Join us as we dive into the true tales of city-building superheroes like you. The ones care so much they HAVE to help their communities.  Here at Next City, we cover stories straight from the streets about the issues that not enough people are talking about.  Ever heard of a team of formerly incarcerated women started their own business when other employers turned them away?  Or have you ever wondered why in some neighborhoods you can spot a dollar store on seemingly every block?  What about homlessness in your city; are they doing enough? There are cities where the goal is ending homelessness and they have lessons to share as they head toward zero. We love trains at Next City. It seems like every urbanist loves a train? Join us on the truth train as we take it from city to city uncovering more stories like these on our new weekly podcast from Straw Hut Media, "Next City.' My name is Lucas Grindley, executive director at Next City, where we believe journalists have the power to amplify solutions and spread workable ideas. Each week I get to sit down with trailblazers to discuss urban issues that get overlooked. At the end of the day, it's all about focusing the world's attention on the good ideas that we hope will grow.  Grab a seat from the bus, subway, light-rail, or whatever your transit-love may be and listen on the go as we spread solutions from one city to the Next City.
