This podcast will be the first of four episodes where, together with future guests, Prof. Robles-Duran will slowly adopt the city of Barcelona as a sample to think through some of the tendencies of a post-pandemic neoliberal urbanization. He will do so by looking at three trending development drivers, the production of urban spectacle, the burdens of rental housing, and the limitless expansion of mass tourism.

Cities After... is a @Democracy At Work  production. Launched in May of 2021, it is a bi-monthly podcast about the future of cities; grounded in our daily urban struggles, it is part dystopian and part utopian. The intention is to entice civic imagination into action, because a more just and sustainable urban future is possible. A new episode is released every other Tuesday at 4pm EST.

    Look, there is no to feel in here. And I know what is left and out
    Thru forty years I was around. Not to mention the cruelty around that was to broke me apart.
    I’ve been around watching my friends die.
    I’m very angry, the same, I’m too old to be there as I was before
    It is for you to do it for yourself, and I’m not a nurse to guide you
