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, and I’ve had pieces published by NBC News, CBC News, the Toronto Star, Jacobin, Salon, Recode, and a bunch more. You can find a list here.
I’m also working on a Master’s in Geography at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and I bring a very global perspective: I used to live in Melbourne, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand, and have visited 41 other countries along the way.
