Program 510: Megalopolis; Copenhagen's Christiania; Teenagers in Europe

Release Date: 01-06-2018


An Italian scholar of architecture compares the scope of today's mega-cities with the more human scale of Venice. And we'll hear what a pair of documentary producers noticed when they interviewed residents of Christiania, a communal society tucked into the middle of downtown Copenhagen. Plus, we get mom-tested advice for making everyone happy on an overseas trip with teenagers.
