Technopolis is the soon-to-released podcast from CityLab that explores how tech innovation is transforming cities—for better and for worse. Through smart conversations with experts and city leaders, we’ll hear what it’s like to be inside the companies and city governments that are grappling with urban innovation. We’ll investigate what’s going well (or not), and what city officials, technologists, and citizens need to know to make sure we get the future we want.
CityLab is committed to telling the story of the world’s cities: how they work, the challenges they face, and the solutions they need.
