Aaron is an incredibly smart guy, gifted writer, and very organized.
The show is usually a short look at simple topics and listener questions. Nice mid-afternoon listen for me.
Great urban planning podcast
I've been reading the Urbanophile for awhile and I'm enjoying Aaron Renn's podcast. I think he is a must-listen for people interested in urban planning, especially in the Midwest.
I really enjoy Mr. Renn's analysis and the conversations he is having with a number of local government/city officials. It's a little rough around the edges and doesn't have the quality production value like other podcasts but overall, I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in cities.
