I Was A Guest On The Startup Societies Podcast

Talking ghost cities and new cities.

I was recently a guest on the Startup Societies podcast, talking about China’s unique brand of urbanization, new cities, and many other things. Listen here:

Startup Societies aims to start planting the seeds of new types of extra-governmental communities that, in my impression, are kind of like charter cities — intentional societies created by groups of like-minded people who want to live a certain way. Although it’s probably better to go to their website to get a better picture of what they’re about.
