For the past three years, The Cap Times has been organizing public events known as Cap Times Talks — panel discussions featuring diverse voices about issues of importance to Madison, from police in public schools to the future of driverless cars.
Starting today, we’ll be bringing you those conversations in podcast form.
Episode 1 of the Cap Times Talks podcast is a discussion from earlier this month, hosted at the High Noon Saloon on Madison’s east side, about what it means to build great neighborhoods in Madison.
The panelists included:
David Mollenhoff, a local historian who helped revitalize the city’s Marquette neighborhood in the 1960s.
Tariq Saqqaf, the city’s neighborhood resource coordinator.
Heather Stouder, the city’s planning division director.
Sheray Wallace, a community activist in the Meadowood neighborhood.
Michael Ford, an instructor at Madison College who works at the intersection of hip-hop and architecture.
Cap Times city government reporter Abigail Becker hosted the talk.
