'Cotto/Gottfried': Postwar suburbia remade America -- into what, though? James Howard Kunstler explains.

World War II changed America, and no small measure of this change was manifested in the popularity of suburban lifestyles. What, exactly, did this mean for America in the long run, though? What can the architecture of postwar suburbs teach us about our society? Why did moving to suburban locales become such a popular idea? How is the America of today impacted by the suburban developments of yore? All of this and more is addressed by James Howard Kunstler, our time's most prolific scholar of suburban architecture, among other things. He joins us on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried' to set the record straight about suburbia.
