CityCast: Episode 8, with Sam Li, TfGM, and Paula Wilson, The Bridgewater Hall

Smart cities podcast

For the eighth episode of CityCast, our host Rowena Burns invited Sam Li from Transport for Greater Manchester into the studio along with The Bridgewater Hall’s Paula Wilson to talk about travel, transport, trams and tunes – including the incredible Tram Tracks project that’s been marking 25 years of Metrolink and The Bridgewater Hall’s 21st birthday.

You’ll also hear some music from the project, featuring the talents of local musicians and community groups from across Manchester. Altrincham’s Simply Voices, the Manchester Lesbian and Gay Chorus, and Sing Sing and Brighter Sound all lend their skills to give a flavour of the Tram Tracks initiative.

Meanwhile, Manchester Metropolitan University’s Caroline White takes the hot seat for the regular ‘Meet the Partners’ segment, and we’ve all the latest smart city news headlines too.
