We are excited to share with you the most recent episode of our developing Somatic Podcast project. Our latest episode focuses on the politics of planning physical activity spaces within the history of American suburbanization. To help us explore the historical links between suburbia and the planning of physical activity spaces, we talk with Dr. Andrew Wiese of San Diego State University, author of the 2004 book Places of Their Own: African American Suburbanization in the Twentieth Century. We also spoke with local residents of the American suburb of Lexington, Massachusetts about their recent efforts in creating more accessible physical activity spaces and initiatives within their community.
