city x and our mall culture.

If you're in need of some simultaneously good and intelligent listening, check out the recent podcast from WNYCs Radiolab - City X.

Produced by Jonathan Mitchell and commissioned by Hearing Voices, City X tells the history of the urbanism and the modern shopping mall through perspectives of people living in an unnamed Middle American city.

You only have to look at the GIANT SHOPPING MALL in West Edmonton or the GIANT SHOPPING COMPLEX in South Edmonton Common to see examples of this here.

No wonder the downtown cores need revitalizing...!!!

It's like bad urban planning spread like a flu virus across North America all at the same time.
