Episode 127: Cities on a Hill
4 days ago
This week we’re joined by Pulitzer Prize winning author Francis Fitzgerald to talk about her 1986 book Cities on a Hill. We discuss the different “visionary” communities from the book including Rajneeshpuram in Oregon, San Francisco’s Castro district, Sun City retirement communities, and Jerry Falwell’s moral majority in Lynchburg Virginia. Francis also talks about living in New York City and restaurant culture in Vietnam.
