Transportation policy is a path to understanding how U.S. cities were built and their role in shaping people’s lives. Emil Frankel has a distinguished career, serving as Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and now works an independent consultant.
In this podcast he weaves the history of rail and auto transit, and their influence on where cities sprung up and the downstream effects on how and where people lived. They weren’t always positive, as some housing projects warehoused families with little to no outdoor space. Learn more about current efforts at urban renewal and how governments still struggle to provide adequate housing for all.
