Laura Pfeifer is an urban planner living in Toronto, Canada. She's been involved in community projects like Park(ing) Day -- which is where parking spaces are temporarily converted to miniature parks -- and Jane's Walk -- an event inspired by Jane Jacobs that gets people to explore their neighborhood streets.

In 2013, Laura put a considerable amount of work into a project called The Planners Guide to Tactical Urbanism. It's a great resource that you can download FREE from her blog

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
