Talking Headways Podcast: Building Relationships to Build a Better City

podcast icon logo
false

This week's guest is Janne Flisrand, an independent consultant and writer at Streets.mn. In her work as a "network weaver," Janne thinks about how to elevate different voices and make sure everyone in a movement has a place to share their expertise and opinions.

In this episode we talk about the importance of relationships in cities -- between neighbors and between elected officials and citizens. Janne shares her thoughts about why people feel a bit powerless to engage in city issues, even if it’s on their own street, and the numerous community meetings on so many different issues that make it hard for even the most dedicated people to participate.

You can find the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.
