About the Show

James Kuntsler has been called a closet social engineer, who should be doing stand-up by one irate Atlantan. In fact, there are a lot of people in Atlanta and across the country challenged by Jim Kuntslers strongly felt views of the negative effects of sprawl in America. His latest book The City in Mind: Notes on the Urban Condition explores why America has become a land full of places not worth caring about. The City in Mind continues the dialogue Jim began in his earlier books, The Geography of Nowhere and Home From Nowhere and in his many lectures.
