Second-Rate City Podcast

In conjunction with my City Journal article “The Second-Rate City?” I recorded a podcast about Chicago with managing editor Ben Plotinsky. This covers some of the same material in the article, with additional color commentary. It’s embedded below, but won’t show up for you in Google Reader and such, so click here to listen.

The Urban State of Mind: Meditations on the City is the first Urbanophile e-book, featuring provocative essays on the key issues facing our cities, including innovation, talent attraction and brain drain, global soft power, sustainability, economic development, and localism. Included are 28 carefully curated essays out of nearly 1,200 posts in the first seven years of the Urbanophile, plus 9 original pieces. It's great for anyone who cares about our cities.
