ABOUT THE SHOW

The Mayors podcast, powered by REEF, is dedicated to hearing from, well, mayors—the people who lead our cities, who make the big decisions, who fight for progress in steps and leaps, who sometimes succeed and sometimes fail.

We learn about why our guests chose to become mayors and how they got there; what keeps (or kept) them up at night while they work to make good cities great; and the issues, solutions, policies, and partnerships they view as critical to building better communities.

In conversation with urbanists Richard Florida and Padden Murphy, we’ll ask and answer the big questions that cities face—it’s a space for us to share, and learn, and celebrate cities.

Mayor Steve Adler, Austin

Steve Adler, Mayor of Austin, is constantly striking a balance between “keeping Austin weird” and supporting the fastest growing large city in the U.S. He recently sat down with Richard and Padden to talk about how cities cultivate innovation, his hopes for infrastructure improvement under the Biden administration, and Austin’s complicated dynamic with state lawmakers.
