On Tuesday March 4th, our host Carousel Bayrd with guest Katherine Cornwell, Madison planning head, to discuss urban planning issues and initiatives in Madison. Bayrd and Cornwell also discussed Happy City by author Charles Montgomery.

Rich with history and new insights from psychology, neuroscience and Montgomery’s own urban experiments, Happy City is an essential tool for understanding and improving our own communities. The message is as surprising as it is hopeful: by retrofitting our cities for happiness, we can tackle the urgent challenges of our age. The happy city, the green city, and the low-carbon city are the same place, and we can all help build it.- From The Happy City’s Website
