CityTalk | Podcast: Fragile Neighborhoods: A Conversation with Seth Kaplan


An urban neighbourhood can be many things to its residents beyond a shared place to live. It can be where to find and/or offer support to community members; join others in working for better public services and resources; and where residents can lead flourishing lives. However, it can also be a fragile place.

For this episode, host Mary Rowe welcomes noted academic and author Seth Kaplan (Johns Hopkins U.) to CityTalk Canada to explore the findings in his latest book, Fragile Neighborhoods: Repairing American Society, One Zip Code at a Time and how they apply to communities in Canada and elsewhere.
