Discussion Group

LAI Discussion Group

This group will meet in early 2022 to discuss “Land & Power,” a land economics podcast out of Pittsburgh. 

“Land & Power”: In 2015, residents of the Penn Plaza apartment buildings in Pittsburgh learned that they’d have to leave their homes to make way for a new development. The news arrived like a pronouncement: this neighborhood, East Liberty, isn’t for you anymore. Some people were afraid. Some people were angry. And some people were ready to fight.

Listening and Discussion Schedule:
Each episode of the podcast is 30 minutes long. We ask that participants listen to two episodes before each discussion.
  • Wed., Jan. 19, noon to 1 p.m.: Episodes 1 and 2
  • Wed., Feb. 16, noon to 1 p.m.: Episodes 3 and 4
