Geography of Breakfast
14:55Mmmmm. The geography just doesn't get much more casual than this, folks. This episode is all about the geography of breakfast. And I, for one, could go for an extra side of casual this week. Where did the concept of the American breakfast even come from? Geography is the answer! Dig in as we discuss the origin of breakfast favorites from eggs to bagels to that Instagram-famous breakfast dish. And we're so excited to feature music from ITS composer (Daniel Kirschenbaum) Danger Field's new album, "Intuition"- available on Bandcamp and streaming platforms the world over. (We're loving the triumphant tone the title track is giving at the conclusion of this episode!)
ITS035: Geography of Vaccination

ITS034: Geography of Belonging
14:14Perhaps the biggest goal of urban planning and community development is creating a sense of place - a sense of belonging. But defining “belonging” can be tricky, and sometimes we’re better at defining what we avoid. On this episode, we discuss the subtle and not-so-subtle features in our environment that signal us to avoid. And then maybe we can start to get down to what makes us feel like we belong. Spoiler alert: What is a welcoming signal to one person can be a red flag to stay away to another. You can view the Show Notes + related content on our website at IsntThatSpatial.net!
Tactical Urbanism, Interview with Roger Cummings
28:23Tactical Urbanism refers to projects done without permission from the local government or with any formal planning – it is DIY, low cost, and temporary. Tactical Urbanism is a tool anyone can use to get the public to pay attention to something the community needs, like more parks or bike lines, or even just to add some fun to the built environment. On this episode, we explore all kinds of Tactical Urbanism projects and find out who it’s for, its possibilities, and its limitations. Then, I interview Roger Cummings, co-founder of the Minneapolis-based nonprofit Juxtaposition Arts, on the organization’s early adoption of Tactical Urbanism and how they’ve used it to engage community members that might otherwise be left out of the urban planning process. It’s a big, fun episode! You can view the Show Notes + related content on our website at IsntThatSpatial.net!
