It's the end of the season, the pennant race is on, the fall classic is looming. So, of course I had to call up some ringers to talk baseball and music.

You know the artists but do you remember these tracks? I've got deep cuts from the back catalogs of some of our favorite bands on this week's show. These are the songs that often get forgotten, or overshadowed by the bigger hits. We all know their hits, everyone knows their popular albums, and the true fans will know a lot of the back catalog for a…
 
On December 3, 2014, a 7-year-old girl named Destiny Gonzalez was killed while crossing State Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. What gets lost in the shocking statistics about the number of pedestrians who die each year in traffic crashes—4,884 in the U.S. in 2014, more than 6,700 in 2020—is that they aren’t “statistics” at all, or even “pedest…

Which comes first: a great transit system or a great city that can support it? What role does high-speed rail play in an overall, effective transportation system?

This week on the Strong Towns podcast, Chuck makes a confession about something he did that he now regrets...and you might be surprised at how much of it revolves around poor placement of park benches in his town of Brainerd, Minnesota. Of course, that's not all this episode deals with. What Chuck's beef with his local park's benches really boils d…
 
We're just a little past the half way mark for this year and already it's shaping up to be a great one as far as new music goes. A lot of music rumbles through my ears, and lately these are the artists who are in heavy rotation here at Suave headquarters. There are definitely some solid contenders for my annual best of list at the end of the year. …
 
For more than four years, Strong Towns has been telling the story of the so-called I-49 Connector project in Shreveport, Louisiana. We say “so-called” because while this project may seek to connect two sections of I-49, it will do so by rending the Allendale neighborhood, a vibrant, predominantly black neighborhood that is the gateway to downtown S…
 
You've read Granola Shotgun. You've seen Johnny Sanphillippo on our website (including in an article just released today). You've heard him on the Strong Towns Podcast multiple times, and those interviews have each been hits with our listeners. So, we've invited him back again to chat with Strong Towns President Chuck Marohn. For those who don't kn…
 
Ages ago I discovered this great blog (yes blog!) called Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More. It was highlighting all the exact types of music that I loved. Eventually that morphed into the fantastic Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More Podcast and Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More Records, run by the even more fantastic prince of power pop promotion, Wayne Lund…

We hear it all the time: “Keep your options open.” It’s the philosophy that shapes much of our approach to education, career, and relationships. It also shapes where we choose to live and, critically, how we live there. Pete Davis calls this infinite browsing mode, and he says it is the defining characteristic of our time. Davis compares it to a lo…
 
The traditional development pattern of towns and cities evolved with humans, the same way ant hills evolved with the ant and bee hives evolved with the bee. Yet around the time of the Great Depression, North Americans began jettisoning millennia of accumulated wisdom about city-building in favor of a suburban development pattern that was scaled for…
 
Time to get down with the upstroke, the Jamaican R&B shuffle that is the foundation of ska music.

This week I was fortunate to connect with the lead singer of Vancouver, BC's Star Collector (Bandcamp, Facebook). It was a fun conversation about the band, his inspirations and what he's listening to currently. Star Collector's latest album, their first in about 15 years, is Game Day and it is a rip roaring power pop ride from start to finish. High…

Here it comes. Another shotgun scatter of new tunes. Breaking New Sound Too. There is so much cool new music out there that one Modcast alone can't hip you to all the mod friendly sounds that abound. Last week's Modcast #480: Breaking New Sound was a huge success (fastest one ever to 3000 streams), and there were so many more songs and bands I want…
 
A small group of professional engineers are using the licensing process to stifle calls for reform and retaliate against Strong Towns for its advocacy. The Strong Towns organization advocates for reforming the way we build our cities, especially the approach that many professional engineers take with transportation and infrastructure systems. Our c…

How much conscious thought goes into our reactions to a place? It might be less than you think. The more we come to understand the human brain, the more we see how much the unconscious mind, and our need to socialize in particular, influences us. And by extension, it influences our architecture. Our capacity for recognizing human faces, for example…

When it comes to housing, Detroit's struggles could be seen as a portent of things to come for other parts of America. Over the past fifteen years, one in three properties in the city have entered into tax foreclosure auctions, with speculators "milking" foreclosed homes for however much money they can get in the short-term, all while letting the p…
