About the Show

The city is a reflection of its people --- their beliefs, their skills, their relationships. Our guests today are working in very different ways to improve the city by improving the lives of the people who live there.

Dr. William Pinsof is president of The Family Institute at Northwestern University. His work with the families of Chicago includes tough advice to parents on how to ensure that their children thrive in the big city. Dr. Pinsof is a clinical professor in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University, and the director of the Center for Applied Psychological and Family Studies at Northwestern.

Stephen Antupit is creating new neighborhoods in the city of Seattle that are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. Stephen is with Seattle-based Mithun, an architecture, design and urban planning firm building its reputation on sustainable practices.
