This isn't your average professional podcast. We're going beyond the typical interview to ask game-changing professionals what they regret, about the stereotypes they encounter every day, how to cut through the BS to carve your own path in the industry, and more. Welcome to Shaping Cities, a podcast by Ticco for people working with cities, communities, and the built environment. We'll explore the challenges facing our work and our regions, hear from leaders who fight the status quo, and dish out real advice for those building their career in practices like urban planning, architecture, historic preservation, development, engineering, public policy, sustainability, and more. Erik Felix, Ticco's Director of Community Engagement, has been with us since the early days. He brings his deep understanding of professionals shaping cities to the table through thoughtful questioning and insights for listeners of all experience levels.
