Talking Ghost Cities On Skylines, The CityMetric Podcast

Talking ghost cities and urbanization in China on Skylines, the CityMetric podcast.

I was a guest on an episode of Skylines, the new CityMetric podcast, that was published on Friday. I talk a little about China’s new city building movement as well as how the ghost city narrative was created. I get a little . . . well, dynamic at times — it’s easy to get excitable when you finally have the opportunity to actually talk about you’ve been researching for three years. You can listen to the podcast below.

CityMetric is the urbanism site of the New Statesman. I’m their defacto China correspondent, and write a monthly article for them.
