The podcast aims to facilitate planning dialogue and mobilize grassroots planning efforts by offering citizens a vehicle to share their stories and be inspired by others.

Each episode explores a theme or question by weaving together stories and insights from citizens, change-makers, experts and artists from cities across Canada, North America and the world. These are complemented by other narratives that offer context, inspiration and precedent.
