Metro Denver’s Gifts, Curses And Rapid Growth, A Spiritual Audio Book Publishing House

Listen Now

It's no accident Denver is growing as fast as it is. It's the result of city leaders going back decades. They laid plans for things like a rail system and public spaces that would lure and serve more people. But something else added fuel to the fire: the internet. Today, listen to "Denver Rising," a discussion organized by The New York Times about the metro area's gifts and its curses. Speakers include former mayor, now governor, John Hickenlooper and preservationist Dana Crawford, who shaped downtown. Then, Tami Simon's Louisville-based audio book company Sounds True and the audio clips that have changed the way she looks at life.
