In this episode of Spacing Radio — the last of season 3 — our cast of contributors explore the theme of how we get around cities. First up are a handful of clips from Jane’s Walk, the yearly festival of walking tours in Toronto and over 60 other cities across North America. Then Spacing magazine’s senior editor Shawn Micallef takes listeners to Yorkville to discuss the ethos behind his new book Stroll. Our new reporter Katie Harris examines the impact the Winter Olympics had on Vancouver’s transportation network. And Spacing Radio producer Mieke Anderson takes a walk with local Toronto historian Madeleine McDowell to chat about the need for places to sit in the city.
