Positive psychology—with Martin Seligman. During the 1960s the field of psychology focussed on the science of how past trauma creates present symptoms, and how to reduce people’s misery. Professor Martin Seligman wanted to change that focus. He’s become known as the Father of Positive Psychology, and he’s had a profound influence worldwide. In Part 1 of our 2 programs with Martin Seligman, hear him address an exclusive audience in Australia on happiness and human flourishing.

Rank #1: The Gentrification Episode. Gentrification has almost been labeled a veritable dirty word in many urbanist circles, oversimplified by some to encompass “societal ills” that should probably be called out for what they are. But whether alluding to racism and displacement, rising rent prices or new development, it’s not an easy subject to cover (which probably explains why it took us so long). Join us on this week’s episode where we explain our personal feelings towards the phenomenon — the good and the bad — and learn more about what one community in Brooklyn is doing to prevent gentrification before it starts courtesy of Next City.

Rank #2: Richard Florida's New Groove. Richard Florida - love him or hate him there's no denying he is a mainstay of urban theory. After his bestselling book "The Rise of the Creative Class" drove a new era of innovation and commercial redevelopment - some say to a fault - we find ourselves in cities that are suddenly pricing out entire segments of their population as the gap between lower and upper class only increases across the US. In this episode we discuss his new book "The New Urban Crisis" (and the speaking series that goes with it) in an effort to unpack the issues of inequality, agency, and neoliberal policies that have shaped our current situation. What does Florida think we should do? Is this a repackaging of his old concepts? And does he do enough to think outside of the box and bring in the kind of radical - and ethical - futurism that our cities need?

Rank #1: The Neighborhood Playbook with Joe Nickol and Kevin Wright | #11. What if there was a book that you could hand to a developer that would help them understand how to activate community spaces before dropping millions or billions of dollars into a project? And what if there were a book that you could hand to community leaders that could help them infuse vibrancy into their neighborhoods to attract resources and capital investment? And, what if those two books were one in the same? Kevin Wright and Joe Nickol have created The Neighborhood Playbook to speak to both developers and community leaders, and bring them together to work on a singular goal.
Rank #2: Environmental Planning 1974-Today with Brian Mooney of Rick Engineering | #13. The impact of the big environmental acts passed in the 1970's is enormous…and almost invisible to the average person because we tend to take things like clean air and clean water and forests and beaches for granted. But if it weren’t for those four pieces of legislation passed in the early seventies, we would be living in a very different world. Brian Mooney Rick Engineering provides a fascinating retrospective on environmental planning in California. Go to profitside.work to find the Profit Side Challenge or to work with Ingrid.

Rank #1: Episode 29: Madison Metro Transit. The unique geography of Madison, Wisconsin -- built on an isthmus, a narrow strip of land between two lakes -- creates an interesting bus service design. It's not quite narrow enough to put all buses on one street that everyone could walk to for very frequent service, but still there is frequent combined service on three corridors running the length of the isthmus. Like many agencies, Madison Metro Transit is struggling to manage steady growth in ridership. They were recently awarded the Outstanding Public Transportation Award for their efforts to improve and promote their service in innovative ways. Marketing Director Mick Rusch joins me to discuss their services and some of the operational issues they deal with.Bus routes and schedules are designed to facilitate connections at a series of transfer points at the edges of the city and downtown around the State Capitol. The most transit friendly city in Wisconsin has installed many transit priority facilities such as bus lanes and most notably a busway for the full length of the busy State Street pedestrian mall. The University of Wisconsin offers unlimited transit passes for their students, faculty and staff.Metro Transit is struggling to deal with overcrowding and is even considering raising fares in order to increase service frequency. Would changing from a city department to a regional transit authority be the solution? Listen in to learn about bus-bike interaction, winter weather, bus technology and much more.In the second half a listener shares a video on the structure of Singapore's bus and rail networks and suggests that privatized transit can only work well when heavily regulated. But if a public entity makes all the important decisions, is it still attractive to those who advocate for deregulation? We also consider whether transit agencies should strive for profit, and suggests a way for the public sector to capture and reinvest some of increasing real estate values that their services facilitate.

Rank #1: Ep. 20: The cow fart tax. On the Feb. 28 episode: City budgets and revenue tools with Terra Gillespie.For some of us – okay, maybe just Matt – city budget debates are events of monumental occasions, on par with the Super Bowl. But they are also very, very frustrating, generally because services are expensive and city councils do not want to pay for them.This week, in an attempt to make sense of all this, Matt and Luke are joined by Terra Gillespie, frequent commentator on city issues and the former creative director of Women in Toronto Politics. She tells us why gender equity must be a critical part of city budgeting.We also nerd-out a bit and talk about our favourite revenue tools, along with the challenges that come with getting politicians to embrace them. Can we use social media to make things like vehicle registration taxes seem cooler? Are taxes that apply to certain behaviours fair and worthwhile. And what about cow farts – we should tax those, right?Finally, Matt offers a thumbs up to Montreal’s plan to install heated sidewalks, while Luke’s thumb is pointed firmly downwards over a proposed Toronto policy to increase the licensing fee for restaurant patios.
Rank #2: Ep. 19: I like the word radical. On the Feb. 7 episode: Building over railways with special guest Michael Meschino (Entuitive Consulting Engineers).Get all fired up for some conversation about joists, girders and cantilevers, because this week on Metropolis Matt and Luke are getting all up into the wild world of engineering.Joined by special guest Michael Meschino from Entuitive, a group of consulting engineers who have worked on projects all over the world, we dive into the hot new trend of building things above railway corridors.Inspired by Mayor John Tory’s plan for a Rail Deck Park in Toronto, we talk about the challenges that come with building atop active rail lines. How do you do it without driving commuters crazy? What are the limitations involved? Does it cost an absurd amount of money? And why is this increasingly something cities are looking at?Also: air. Who owns it? Me? You?Michael tells us about projects he’s worked on in Manhattan and Calgary, and leaves John Tory with some advice on how to make Rail Deck Park a reality.Finally, in our thumbs up/thumbs down segment, Luke gives praise to the art of protesting, while Matt cheers for math and the proper prioritization of transit over automobiles.

Rank #2: Episode 162: One Rule - Don’t Talk About Professor’s Parking Spaces. This week we’re joined by James Corless, CEO of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, the Sacramento area’s MPO and COG. We chat with James about the Sacramento region and its connections to both urban and rural economies, his past working on federal transportation policy in Washington DC, why it’s kind of ridiculous to do 30 year regional long range transportation plans, and why mid-sized cities are part of a whole new space race for providing jobs and housing around the United States.
Rank #1: Transformation of the Parking Industry with Mike Klein, CAPP. There has been a tremendous shift in the parking industry over the last few decades, both in terms of how parking is generated and regulated, as well as how practitioners approach their job.

In this solo podcast, Chuck Marohn reflects on the state of the Strong Towns movement, its critics and its interactions with other movements like Market Urbanism and Complete Streets.
Rank #2: What's it like to get started as a small scale developer?. Kea Wilson is Strong Towns' Director of Community Engagement and, as of a couple days ago, the proud owner of a new four-family building in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. This is the second property that she and her partner have purchased and managed as landlord and developers and today we brought her on the Strong Towns podcast to talk all about that experience. (She's also been detailing her journey toward purchasing this property in a series of articles on the website this week.) In this in-depth and honest podcast conversation, Kea and Rachel discuss: What does being a developer look like and why do it in the first place?How do you weight the costs and benefits of a given property (both monetary and non-monetary), and make the choice to pull the trigger on a purchase?Is it possible to provide quality affordable housing and still break even or make a profit as a small scale developer without deep pockets?What are the challenges and benefits of being a landlord?How can we incentivize more landlords to care about their tenants and neighborhoods? What financial, social or political systems would need to change to make this the norm?MENTIONED IN THIS PODCAST:In Defense of Housing: The Politics of Crisis by Peter Marcuse and David MaddenMr. Money Mustache (blog)Bigger Pockets (real estate investing resource)Incremental Development Alliance "Who can afford to invest in a poor neighborhood?"

Rank #1: They Tore Down Hell. Atlanta wanted an end to its public housing projects-- no more pockets ofpoverty, crime, and despair. In the 1990s, the city started tearing the projects down,replacing them with mixed-income neighborhoods. The shining success story of thiseffort?

Rank #2: Mighty Tieton. It’s no secret that climbing rents are driving many creative entrepreneurs out of popular urban centers. When Seattle book publisher Ed Marquand stumbled across a dearth of cheap real estate in a struggling small town not far from the big city, he thought he may have found a solution to the problem. But will Marquand be received as a knight in shining armor, or a colonizer come to conquer and pillage?
