Talking Headways Podcast: Charlotte’s Urban Web

Mary Newsom of the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute joins me this week to discuss everything Charlotte, from its beginnings as a crossroads of Native American pathways to its current incarnation as a fast-growing metropolis. The enormous growth of the region, she says, includes a recent surge of suburban subdivisions that were lying in wait during the recession.

Transit is expanding in Charlotte, but the city also just finished a loop highway it began building decades ago, and the street network is not so conducive to urban growth. Tune in and learn all about it, and hear what prompted Mary to get into urban issues.

And don’t forget! You can find the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.
