Katie McCaskey wants to radically revitalize America (AUDIO)

If you haven’t yet, go read the Micropolitan Manifesto. The photos by Pat Jarrett are worth it.

If you loved the Micropolitan Manifesto: How to Radically Revitalize America as much as I did, you’ll want to meet author Katie McCaskey. That’s why I wanted to interview her.

Katie and I talked about a lot of small town issues:

  • Moving away and moving home
  • Walkability in small towns
  • Hobby businesses that become more than a hobby
  • The coolest small town grocery store anywhere (beer garden??)
  • What makes a micropolitan cool?
  • What are our small town strengths?
  • Rebounders coming back to small towns
