Mayors lead the charge against global issues like climate change, housing

Cities have often found themselves at the forefront of major issues over the past several years — from social justice to climate change to a global pandemic. The next guest sat down with mayors from cities on five continents to talk to them about dealing with issues like those.

Anthony Flint is a senior fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and author of the book "Mayor’s Desk." In it, he interviews mayors in 20 cities, including Phoenix; Boston; Washington, D.C.; Seoul, South Korea; Athens, Greece; and Bogotá, Columbia.

He joined The Show to talk about what he learned.
