BNMC Launches Podcast: Talking Cities With Matt Enstice
Friday, October 14, 2016
The new podcast series, Talking Cities, hosted by President & CEO Matt Enstice, investigates cutting-edge innovations for cities in America and beyond, featuring people that our team has connected with who are creating vibrant, healthier, and more sustainable communities. In each episode, we will talk to someone who shares our mission of furthering economic growth, igniting urban revitalization, and building strong, thriving communities, and is doing so in their own way either locally, globally, or systemically.
In the first episode, Matt talks with David Gamble, longtime BNMC collaborator, architect and urban planner specializing in urban design, about the importance of bringing community and economic development together through planning and engagement.
Next week, Matt talks with Tony Masiello, former mayor of Buffalo, NY, about the opportunities and challenges that elected officials face in transforming cities. They discuss what led Tony to develop creative solutions to the difficult economic situation facing Buffalo during the 80s and 90s, much like many other Rust Belt cities at that time.
