The podcast this week is a conversation with Alex Bauman, the vice president of the board for streets.mn and a sometimes prolific writer about Minneapolis transportation and urban policy on streets.mn and at his blog Getting Around Minneapolis.
Alex recently left his job at the Minneapolis Public Housing Agency, and so I managed to sit him down at Ngon Bistro on University Avenue last week to pick his brain about public housing policy in Minneapolis and around the country. I called it Public Housing for dummies, and in this case, I was the dummy. I asked Alex all about public housing policy, where it’s located, and the history of all different public housing programs as they’ve evolved through the 20th century. We had a great talk and I hope you enjoy the conversation.
