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.

Former Mayor Mitch Landrieu, New Orleans, Louisiana

Mitch Landrieu served as the mayor of New Orleans from 2010 to 2018, helping to rebuild the city from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Now focusing his attention on racial equity, the NOLA-native talks to Padden and Richard about his life as a professional actor before he pivoted into politics, what it’s like to lead through a disaster, and the economic and connective power of the arts.
