About

Cities are amazing!  That's why we love to talk about them each week. From transportation to urbanism and urban issues, the podcasts we put out on the Talking Headways feed are the best places to find out new information about cities on the web.

History

Back in 2013 the folks at Streetsblog USA asked me if I could start a column on the site. I declined thinking it would take too much time, but I would be willing to chat for an hour about cities. That's when Tanya Snyder and I started the Talking Headways podcast. After a year I found out the hard way that putting together a podcast is hard work but I wanted to keep it going because I was having so much fun. 

Fast forward 7 years and here we are, we've done over 300 episodes of Talking Headways and our review show Mondays at The Overhead Wire and are still going strong.  As a companion to our daily newsletter we started in 2006 now called "The Overhead Wire Daily" (formerly The Other Side of the Tracks and The Direct Transfer) the podcasts on our feed continue the organization's goals of sharing information about cities. 

So What Are We Trying to Do Here at Patreon?
We want to continue The Talking Headways and Mondays at The Overhead Wire podcasts.  I love putting them together and I appreciate the support you give which helps pay for interns that write up the show rundowns for Mondays at The Overhead Wire and edit Talking Headways. With your help we'll be able to keep creating these podcasts and doing bigger and better things. We have big plans so anything you give will be helpful.  

Thanks for supporting us and lets keep it going!
