nextSTL began as the St. Louis Urban Workshop in 2009. Since then, the site has continued to evolve. Incorporating more voices across more platforms to tell the story, past, present, & future, of St. Louis. The evolution of Facebook and Twitter has changed the discussion, and the process of writing about urban and civic issues. Conferences, events, appearances by nextSTL contributors on radio and television, we’ve done, and will continue to do it all. Now it’s time to launch the Future Great City podcast. The podcast will facilitate more conversations with more of the people shaping St. Louis today.
