SUNY Plattsburgh Sociology Professor Charles Simpson, of Burlington, Vermont's Coalition for a Livable City and the Burlington Ward 6 Neighborhood Planning Assembly, James Leas, a patent lawyer and F-35 activist, and Michael Long, a concerned citizen, provide their personal take, not endorsed by the Coalition or the Assembly, on matters in Burlington and the Greater Burlington area of livability, sustainability, and affordability.

The March 2018 episode looks at the following matters around town: the basing of 18 F-35s at BTV, the re-design of City Hall Park, the shape of the Champlain Parkway, the future of Memorial Auditorium, the impact of UVM on rent levels and housing generally (the Neighborhood Project), the continued influence of the Infinite and Carina campaigns, CLC and R&D on city directions, and public participation/inclusion/diversity in city decisions on BT, the NPAs, Memorial, and CHP.
