Society has been writing about cities for centuries, from the words of Plato to the writings of more recent legends like Jane Jacobs and Ian McHarg. It is through reading the ideas of others that we can learn and grow our understanding of how cities function and how we can ensure they function well for everyone. The Booked on Planning podcast grew out of this idea in an effort to expand upon the books considered by the American Planning Association as important to read in preparing for the AICP exam, or certification exam for planners.
In year two, the show is turning toward current literature with author interviews on a diverse range of topics including equity, housing, transportation, technology, sustainability, and more. As a monthly show, cohosts Stephanie Rouse and Jennifer Hiatt sit down with the authors to discuss their books and how they shape the way we live, work, and move around our cities.
