Mondays 95: Connecting the Dots

August 23, 2021

This week on the Mondays show, we chat about a number of different big articles from the last few weeks including TXDOT’s freeway expansions, using the Commerce Clause to rethink zoning, working from home and more! I’m Han Solo this week but I’ve pulled together a couple of the recent newsletter intros as well.

Testimonials

…the first thing I read every morning is the newsletter to see what’s been out there. It’s great to have an aggregator that pulls everything together so nicely.

Joe Cortright, City Observatory


I think that the email newsletter that you do every morning is the best one that I get, and I get a lot of them.

Mary Newsom, The UNC Charlotte Urban Institute


Really is the best daily urban newsletter out there.
