Transcript: Talking Headways Podcast #85

February 17, 2020

So we’ve gotten a lot of requests in the past to create transcripts, but never did it because it was either too expensive or time consuming. But I think the cost and time have come down to a place where we can start posting them. So here’s the first one (Episode 85: You Can’t Swim After the Storm) which we posted as a bonus episode over Christmas and hopefully there will be more and I’ll try to post them soon after the episodes are posted.

…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.
