Issue Nine

From: Smart City Radio
Length: 58:54

This week on Smart City, the group Cincinnatians for progress fight for their right to transit and we'll hear a conversation with Alex Steffan about using solutions based journalism to create a better world. Read the full description.

Default-piece-image-1 In Cincinnati, a clumsily written ballot measure would effectively strangle any transit improvement and expansion in the city and my guest Joe Sprengard is fighting to strike it down.  We'll talk with Joe about forming Cincinnatians for Progress and discover the ways to build a political movement.

And we'll revisit my conversation with Alex Steffan.  Alex is a journalist and author who runs the organization World Changing.com.   The site practices what he calls "Solutions based journalism" on the environment and has become the go-to source for forward thinking solutions on climate change and sustainability.  Alex joins us to tell us about this new vision for journalism and how to build a brighter future.
