1st thesis- “How Covid-19 Reshaped Cities” by Kevin J Krizek addresses how Covid-19 positively impacted cities by reducing transportation by automobile, when in fact negative reactions occurred in regards to expense, inconvenience and unsafe conditions.
Concluding thesis- Covid-19 did in fact reshape cities but not as productively mentioned in this podcast.
