Colin Nagy sent us a link to an interesting Monocle magazine podcast that features a discussion between Tyler Brule and Alain De Botton on the subject of livable cities. Alain talks about cities that get it right and why – but at the end of the interview the Swiss-born author admits he finds it hard to quit London, despite all its downfalls, because the city allows you to ever dream what would it be like if it was better. Worth downloading and watching on your next flight.
