About the Show

The Bear Revolution is upon us. So says Jonathan Taplin, a long-time innovator in the entertainment field and Adjunct Professor at the Annenberg School of Communication where his areas of specialization are in International Communication Management and the field of digital media entertainment. Jonathan sees cities and states rising in power, with California leading the way, while power diminishes at the center.

And then we go even more local with D.C. Councilman Tommy Wells who is determined to make our nation's capitol a more walk-able, livable city. Tommy began his Washington, D.C. career in 1985 as a social worker in the District's child protective services agency, eventually becoming director of the D.C. Consortium for Child Welfare, an organization of 20 nonprofit agencies that serve the city's children and families.

All this plus our weekly essay from Walker Smith, this week on Smart City.
