About the Show

Imagine this: Bicycles traveling at speeds up to 50 miles per hour in enclosed tubes hanging above the streets. That's the vision of Chris Hardwicke, a Toronto architect who is promoting his idea as Velo-City, and we'll talk to Chris about his remarkable plan on Smart City.

Also with us is Michele Stuchell who is heading the C3 in Richmond, Virginia. She calls C3, Richmond's non-profit Creative Change Center, a "launching pad for creativity."

We'll find out more about Velo-City and C3 on the next Smart City.
