About the Show

This week on Smart City Richard Florida is our guest. He predicted the rise of the Creative Class, and now he says where you live is the most important decision you'll ever make. His latest book is called: "Who's Your City".

We'll also speak with Meg Cheever. Meg is the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. She says parks are more important than ever to the physical and emotional well-being of urban dwellers. The Conservancy is hosting a conference called: Body and Soul, Parks and The Health of Great Cities.
