Michael Lewyn has been teaching at numerous law schools for 14 years, and has written extensively on issues relating to urban and suburban development. Like several other guests on Urbanism Speakeasy, we first met through Congress for the New Urbanism.

We talk about policies and common planning practices that contribute to sprawl, and what can be done to reverse those trends.

Urbanism Speakeasy is a podcast with a particular focus on human-scale design. We love streets and places designed for people, regardless of how they happen to travel. No advanced technical degrees or silver spoons required on this show. Our primary goal is to share technical information and trends in ordinary language. 

The show is hosted exclusively by Sustainable Cities Collective. For more information about the show and its companion blog, please visit UrbanismSpeakeasy.com.
