About the Show

This week on Smart City we're talking with people who use the internet to help you explore your city. Want to find out what's happening in your neighborhood? Adrian Holovaty knows. He's the creator of, a website that provides hyper-local news tailored to your street address. We'll give the site a test run and see what's happening on our block.

We'll also speak with Jennifer Coleman. She produced a series of audio tours called City Prowl that illuminate the special stories and places of her home city of Cleveland. We'll hear a sample from one of her tours and talk to her about the future of her site.
