Urbanism Speakeasy is the podcast about human-scale design, just the way the free market intended. We're interested in what makes great cities, towns, and villages. Common sense planning and design has been taboo for decades, thanks in large part to government intervention. We talk about technical issues in plain language for everyone to understand. No advanced degrees or new urbanism pedigree required.

Customer Reviews

Interesting topics but...

As a civil transportation / traffic engineer I appreciate discussion on these topics. I have been drawing roads since I was five and have worked in the transportation design industry for twenty three years. I am aware of the problems that DOTs have with the reluctance to allow design exceptions and the like. But there are successes in implementing standards for all modes of transportation. And the biggest problem is funding. Are advocates of other modes of transportation going to have some skin in the game? Or are they going to be like everyone else and expect someone else to pay for it. And right now there is no government program that is paid for. Hard to complain about the DOTs when they are funding the project


This is a great podcast for those interested in concepts related to land use planning. As a planning professional, I find the grassroots nature of the broadcast informative and inspiring! Thanks!

Street design for the layperson

Anyone with a passing interest in streets, street design, and/or land use issues should subscribe to this podcast. This is the best podcast I’ve found on the topics of street design and its impact on the health of our communities, in the figurative and literal sense. Latest episode on roundabouts was grounded in simple statistics that make it clear just how insane our standard traffic engineering approaches can be in the US.
Keep up the good work!!
