About the Show

Where will the leadership come from to innovate successful futures for America's cities? Paul Grogan is testing some new and exciting possibilities in his hometown of Boston where he runs the community foundation, and what he is learning has applications for cities everywhere.

Also with us is Joe Cortright who has just completed a new study for CEOs for Cities called the Young and Restless in a Knowledge Economy. He's spotted a couple of trends that urban leaders better pay attention to.

Joe Cortright and Paul Grogan are our guests this week on Smart City.
