Our staff at The Urban Developer love a good podcast.
From technology, startups and business to music, social impact and wellness, the power of a podcast is something we take seriously here at TUDHQ.
To celebrate our first release of speakers for this year’s Urbanity conference, we asked some of them to help us curate a list of the best podcasts on the future of cities.
There’s a diverse selection of local and global productions, so we hope that you enjoy the fascinating array of aural goodness!
Produced by American media outfit Slate, Placemakers is a series that delivers 30-minute episodes on individual projects, people or cities.
The episodes take on classic urbanist topics such as reforming the suburbs and designing walkable places, but often with a thought-provoking twist.
Produced by The Guardian, this classic podcast explores the evolving force of urbanisation through the lens of future cities.
This single episode provokes thinking about the role science and technology play in the cities of tomorrow and explores how design affects the behaviour of those that exist within them.
Hosted by AECOM’s director of cities James Rosenwax, Talking Cities accesses the leaders creating, shaping and improving the cities we call home.
Through candid conversation, the podcast unpacks what makes them tick and how they are improving our economic, cultural and social epicentres.
