About the Show

This week's Smart City is a rebroadcast of an episode that first aired July 2, 2005.

How do you cut through the status quo and imagine a different future?

Our guests this week have successfully answered that question, one as mayor and one as civic entrepreneur. Stephen Goldsmith was the two-term mayor of Indianapolis where he built a national reputation as an innovator who re-thought how local government delivered public services. He fought the status quo and won. He is now sharing his experience as director of the Innovations in Government program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

James Calaway is the founder of the Center for Houston's Future. The center has crafted a number of scenarios that help Houstonians re-think their city's future and its place in the world.

Mayor Stephen Goldsmith and James Calaway are with us to talk about imagining new futures for cities on Smart City.
