Today, Jackson is chatting with Joel Anderson from West Village, Alabama. They start talking about how in the age of remote work cities no longer have lots of workers there as a given. Instead, enabled primarily by remote work, many people have a choice about where they live, so cities have to actively attract residents. Then, they dive into how America’s retail landscape was built around the car before discussing what life is like on an e-bike.

Cabin is also looking to provide more options for remote workers with coliving. You can help grow our network of neighborhoods! You’ll also get our email newsletter packed with Cabin news and ways to get involved with the community.
