The question posed in April’s cover story, "The $100 Million Question", might seem like it came out of left field. And perhaps it did, but we thought it might be good to explain the genesis of the story, and the discussion we hoped to provoke by writing it.

To hear more from publisher Rick Wamre, contributing editor Jeff Siegel and me about how this story came to be, listen to this Advocate Radio podcast. You can either download it (10.4 MB) or simply play it (a little more than 11 minutes).

In the podcast, you’ll hear me mention the ideas from architect Stephen Pickard of Basic Architecture and Interiors and urban planner Kevin Sloan of Kevin Sloan Studio that were discussed in the Oak Cliff Advocate cover story. Visit Back Talk Oak Cliff on Monday for a podcast interview with these two Winnetka Heights reisdents.
