The Bottom Up Revolution

This podcast features stories of the Strong Towns movement in action. Hosted by Rachel Quednau, it’s all about how regular people have stepped up to make their communities more economically resilient, and how others can implement these ideas in their own places. We’ll talk about taking concrete action steps, connecting with fellow advocates to build power, and surviving the bumps along the way—all in the pursuit of creating stronger towns.
