I love technology when it comes to finding current information and gaining knowledge. Podcast are one of those great tools. The following are 3 podcast that I have been following in some cases for the past couple years.

StrongTowns Podcast

I started listening to the Strong Towns Podcast earlier this year. They add a new podcast about every week or so. Strong Towns is a non-profit with a mission to “support a model for growth that allows America’s towns to become financially strong and resilient“. Although not New Urbanist per se themselves they are supporters of New Urbanism principles. They hold very strong arguments regarding how the majority of todays built environment, that being sprawl, is not financially sustainable in terms of maintainance, an economic growth model, as well as a social model.

I strongly recommend you visit their website: Strong Towns

KunslterCast Podcast

I have been listening to the Kunslter cast now for over 2 year. James Howard Kunstler is an author and speaker. I recently enjoyed reading his book ‘The Long Emergency’. His strong personality makes him very entertaining to listen to. His podcast title sums up his focus rather well: Suburban Sprawl: a tragic comedy. His podcast, hosted by Duncan Crary, are updated about every week. Kunslter is a strong supporter of New Urbanism and shares his thoughts, stories, and opinions on why the Suburban Sprawl model is failing us as a nation. Lots of great insights and thoughts to chew on and debate.

Check out his website as well: KunstlerCast
