Our guest this week is Inga Saffron, Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer. We talk about Jane Jacobs’ groundbreaking work in urban studies, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and how it’s weathered the test of time since its publication in the 1960s. We also talk about the past and future of journalism, Inga’s work as a foreign correspondent in Russia, and lots of other stuff.
