City Inside/Out with Brian Callanan
Seattle's Parking Pains
Premieres Fri., April 20, 7 p.m.
Should developers drive Seattle's parking future? The City Council is considering eliminating parking requirements for new construction near transit. An unusual alliance of businesses, labor, low-income housing providers and environmental groups support the change. But some neighborhoods – concerned about the prospect of overcrowded streets – want to park the proposal. We hear from residents, business owners and Councilmember Richard Conlin. Our studio guests include developer Liz Dunn, Brock Howell of Futurewise and architect Greg Hill. Catch past episodes of City Inside/Out.
Rachel Maddow: Security to the Extreme
Premieres Tue., April 24, 8 p.m.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow believes our culture has become deeply militarized. Maddow, author of Drift, explores how the national-security sector has shape-shifted and grown—favoring the priorities of the war machine over those of civilian life. Maddow is interviewed at Seattle Town Hall by Pulitzer-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, of the Los Angeles Times (and formerly Seattle Post-Intelligencer). Watch past episodes of American Podium.
5th Avenue Spotlight Night: Damn Yankees
TV Premiere Thur., April 19, 11 p.m.
The 5th Avenue's David Armstrong leads an engaging discussion about the musical comedy Damn Yankees, a devishly sexy race for the pennant. Adapted from Douglass Wallop's 1954 novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant, the musical tells the story of an aging baseball fan who makes a deal with the Devil so his beloved hometown team can beat the Yankees in the race for the pennant. Watch it online now!
Delivery Systems and the Cost of Care
Premieres Sat., April 21, 4 p.m.
How much do health care services and procedures cost? What's driving up the price? Does cost equal quality? How can consumers assess cost and quality among a field of different providers? A panel of health care professionals tackles the topic at the kick off of Seattle CityClub's 2012 Health Care Series. Catch past episodes of Town Square.
Perspectives on Public Transit
Premieres Mon., April 23, 7:30 p.m.
Authors Darrin Nordahl and Jarrett Walker discuss public transit from two different ends of the bus route: technical simplicity - and fun. Walker, author of Human Transit, believes that transit can be simple if we focus on the underlying geometry that all transit technologies share. Nordahl, author of My Kind of Transit, argues that when public transit is an enjoyable experience, tourists and commuters alike will willingly hand in their keys. The discussion is moderated by Rob Johnson of Transportation Choices and presented as part of the From Island Press series at Seattle Town Hall.
