A Greener Future: Drexel’s ‘Lindy Institute’ Reimagines Public Space

    On this episode of You Oughta Know, Shirley investigates if increased screen-time during remote learning may negatively impact the vision of a generation of children, and Regina introduces us to Ai Love Chinatown, a web series where creators Devon Stahl and Lamei Zhang of PCDC invite viewers to Chinatown and learn where to find the best congee, or how to navigate a Chinese grocery store. Then, find out why now might be the perfect time to check out one of the many museums and tourist attractions Philadelphia has to offer. Next up, experience the atmosphere of a provincial French town without ever leaving New Jersey at Renault Winery’s Vintner Wonderland where families can enjoy wine, ice skating, live music, and bonfires. Shirley shares how many couples are downsizing their weddings, a trend spurred by COVID with lasting potential. Then, public conversation is shaping the redevelopment of the Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refinery, which exploded in 2019, as Drexel University’s Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation imagines a greener, more connected future. Plus, meet Steven Ford, an accomplished Gospel musician, producer, and educator.
