US of Ed

By 2SER 107.3FM

Ed Blakely has served in different capacities under a succession of presidential administrations, has guided government policy on urban planning and is a widely cited academic. My name is Sean Britten, and each week, Ed and I have a chat about what’s the latest news out of the United States, talking everything politics, planning and policy from sea to shining sea. US of Ed typically talks issues on a week by week basis, but check out some of our more timeless specials: SPECIAL: MLK's legacy and the issues of Black America: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=184046 US of Ed on Guns in America: Part One: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=285335 US of Ed on Guns in America: Part Two: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=285341 SPECIAL: South of the Border: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=372708 SPECIAL: Crafting Innovative Places: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=386032 SPECIAL: Who Killed the American Dream?: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=386003 SPECIAL: Climate Emergency: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=386003 SPECIAL: The Impeachment Process: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=433201 SPECIAL: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=738156
