S04 E02: Meaty

This week on Awkward Silences, Tyler and I discuss heritage policy and procedure at the municipal level, new ammunition illustrating the environmental value of building reuse, manufacturing plants in China, and, last but not least, Ryan Gosling memes. If only there were a meme combining our (my) love of Ryan and heritage preservation...

And while we're at it...

New York Times' article on the plants and another on why jobs are heading to China
And finally, will China collapse anyhow?
