This week, City Observatory’s founder Joe Cortright sat down with the Knight Foundation’s Carol Coletta for the Knight Cities podcast. Their conversation reflected on the work City Observatory has undertaken over the past year, and dug more deeply into some of the topics, like neighborhood change and inequality, that have been a focus of our recent work.

Listen in to find out more about these topics:

  • How higher inequality at the neighborhood level actually is one key to more integrated metropolitan areas.
  • Why public policy has ended up making the most desirable neighborhood types illegal, and what we can do about it.
  • Which indicators city leaders ought to be paying attention to if they want their cities to succeed.

Plus, listen in to hear what’s next for City Observatory.
