Clifton Lemon and Steve Lawton of LightPlace Advisors join me this week to talk about how lighting is going to change in cities with the advent of the LED. We learn about what fire and light means to humans and why the street light might become one of the most valuable assets a city has.

Clifton and Steve describe a public health angle as well -- how the color temperature affects us and why we should be mindful of how many times cities choose to create lighting that is better for driving and cars than walking and people.

We also get into why brighter might not always mean safer when you’re walking at night, as well as how in-ground lighting can improve traffic management in cities.

So please join us for this “enlightening” episode of the Talking Headways Podcast.  And remember, you can subscribe on iTunes and Stitcher.
