Our latest guest is Katrina Johnston-Zimmerman, an urban anthropologist and lecturer from Philadelphia. She co-founded the “The Women Led Cities Initiative” which aims to bring women's voices to the forefront of urban planning and design. In 2019 she was named to the “BBC’s 100 Women of 2019”, an annual listing of the most inspiring and influential women from around the world. She has served as a lecturer at Drexel University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. With this episode we tried something new, we conducted our interview on the streets of Philadelphia in Johnston-Zimmerman’s neighborhood, it was a great way to talk to her and learn more about urban anthropology. It was a really fun way to do the interview and we really enjoyed our conversation.
