unPlanned: Julia Hansen, What if cities produced most of what their inhabitants consumed? It would mean Amazon would not be shipping a plastic gizmo from China, to New Jersey at huge environmental and social cost. What if we were more connected to the things we used and could walk down the street to a workshop to fix them when they broke? These are the questions that Julia Hansen is asking. She works at the Fab Lab at the Cambridge Innovation Center, and she tells us all about local fab labs and how they work, and she looks at fab cities, and tells us how they might change our lives. Here is our conversation. Produced by Sam Seidel.

unPlanned: Jeremy Crandell, Burning Man, the cultural symbol of a generation, won't be happening this year because of Covid. Started in San Francisco in the late 1980s as a small gathering of friends on a beach to watch a sculpture get set on fire, the annual event has grown to over 70,000 participants from around the globe meeting up in the Nevada desert to learn something new about themselves and the world. And each year, a "city" is built to house these people. It addresses such mundane things as, "how much parking do we need?" and such consequential questions as, "where will people gather and share?" And just as quickly, when the Burning Man week winds up on Labor Day, that city disappears leaving not a trace behind. Jeremy Crandell, the former Art co-lead for Burning Man tells us about the place, its culture and its art and some of the massive logistics needed to make it possible. He also helps us try to understand what it all says about our times and our culture. Here is his conversation with unPlanned. Produced by Sam Seidel.
