NOTE: This edition of Spacing Radio represents the finale of our first season. We’re going to take a bit of a break. Look for another podcast in a couple of months.
Join us as we listen in on a handful of the 117 walks Torontonians led and attended as part of this year’s Jane’s Walk.
In this podcast, we’ll travel to Bloor and Lansdowne, Kipling and Steeles, the Lower Don Lands, and the Geary Avenue hydro corridor. Also, host David Michael Lamb talks to organizer Jane Farrow about how this year’s Jane’s Walk events played their part in documenting and celebrating what Jane Jacobs (for whom Jane’s Walk is named) famously called “the complexity of the sidewalk ballet.”
Plus, we’ll hear music by local independent band Hooded Fang.
