The Future City

Welcome to Your Future City!

In the Future City Podcast, we speak with extraordinary people you normally wouldn’t hear from about the future of cities. From cocktail artists to urban planners, green thumbs to financial analysts, we share stories about how these creative thinkers and doers are shaping the cities you live in.

Obviously, the views expressed here are our own not those of our employers.

What would it mean for our cities if equity and resilience were the metrics of success? On this episode of The Future City Podcast we speak with Harvard and MIT-trained Associate Vice President of Economic Development for the New York City Economic Development Corporation Jonathan Lane. Jonathan speaks with us about the power of targeting new industry to tackle equity issues in a city, the need to challenge the status quo and why resilience is the key to urban economics.
