Municipal Equation Podcast
About This Show
Municipal Equation is a podcast that gets to the core of our cities and towns – and creates an exchange of ideas meant to help you make your hometown a better place. We cover all of the variables that make life in a municipality -- whether a city, town, village, what-have-you -- unique to any other locale.
At times, we’ll focus on the personalities, like trailblazing local leaders or young urban planners with novel ideas. At others, we’ll drill down on big challenges facing the governance or spirit of municipalities, like infrastructure funding or the growth of a talent-base. We’ll meet authors of books and reports that put a new spin on how we see our cities and towns. And from time to time, we’ll get futuristic, examining the technologies and ways of living that might be on the horizon. Best of all, we’ll celebrate the successes that show how great our hometowns really are.
It’s all part of the Municipal Equation. Let’s talk about it. Let’s be a part of it. Municipal Equation is made possible by the North Carolina League of Municipalities, online at www.nclm.org. Producer/host/music: Ben Brown.
Brief: Municipalities, communities, leadership and local government podcast.

EP 21: Murals Unlock a City
< 1 day ago
Sure, perspectives vary on public art. But on this episode we visit a small southern city with a ton of buy-in for art as a transformative tool -- for revitalization, community pride, local history, economic development -- all starting with publicly facilitated yet privately financed murals. And then, for our host, comes a funny coincidence. Hear what it's all about on this episode of Municipal Equation, from the North Carolina League of Municipalities.
