In cities around the world, tech companies are trying to push their way into the urban fabric, the need to address the climate crisis has become undeniable, and residents are demanding changes to make their lives easier. Every Sunday, I’ll give you a critical assessment of these topics and how cities are responding to them.
I may be biased, but it’s pretty fascinating.

Who am I?
My name is Paris Marx. I write about cities, technology, and politics from a socialist perspective with pieces published by NBC News, CBC News, Toronto Star, Jacobin, Tribune, OneZero, and more. You can find a list here.
I’m also the host of Tech Won’t Save Us, a weekly podcast challenge the worldview of Silicon Valley, and I’m just finishing a Master’s in Geography at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I bring a very global perspective, having lived in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, while visiting another 41 countries along the way.
