RRR's The Urbanists – summer replacement for "The Architects" on RRR. Urban planning program about the way the modern city does (and doesn’t) work
RRR’s The Urbanists will return for 2013-14 as the summer replacement for The Architects. The program is of course on independent Melbourne radio station 3RRR, which is here:
We will be doing some things differently from, and some things the same as, our first run of summer shows in 2012-13.
We’ll look at the stories behind the places where you live – the pressures, conflicts and charms of Melbourne’s urban environments. Featuring live interviews, news, arguments and insights. A show about the way the modern city does (and doesn’t) work. 7pm Tuesdays on 3RRR (that’s 102.7 on the fm dial, or listen online), returning Tuesday December 3rd 2013.
The first episode will feature some interviews from and discussion of the 2013 State of Australian Cities (SOAC) conference that David and Elizabeth both recently attended in Sydney.
A lot has happened in urban and related policy and research this year, so we might start with a bit of a roundup of that – to continue over the forthcoming episodes.
