Professor Greg Lindsey is an associate dean at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs. He has received quite a few awards over the years for his work linking academic research with real-world practice.

What caught my eye was his work studying the relationship between the built environment and physical activity. Greg has been published by the Journal of the American Planning Association, the Journal of Physical Activity and Health, and a host of others. 

He joins Urbanism Speakeasy to chat about some of the work he's published in recent years about making non-motorized travel a viable means of transport.

Urbanism Speakeasy is a podcast with a particular focus on human-scale design. We love streets and places designed for people, regardless of how they happen to travel. No advanced technical degrees or silver spoons required on this show. Our primary goal is to share technical information and trends in ordinary language. 

The show is hosted exclusively by Sustainable Cities Collective. For more information about the show and its companion blog, please visit
