U of T News recently produced a miniseries of election-focused podcasts, featuring the University of Toronto students, experts and entrepreneurs whose work is pushing towards the future of traffic, transit, sustainable cities and the changing role of the city. Its stories tied in to the municipal election by discussing key voting issues. The episodes were made available on an online platform called SoundCloud, as well as through iTunes, and were embedded in web stories published on U of T News.

As our team plans for an ongoing series, we're looking for feedback to help us make the best, most interesting and most useful podcast we can. Your input is greatly appreciated. If you wish to listen to the original miniseries before completing the survey, find it here: http://news.utoronto.ca/u-t-cities-podcast-final-episode-future-cities .

The survey should take less than five minutes. There is an optional opportunity to enter contact details for your chance to win a U of T Bookstore gift certificate or a one-month Metropass. Thanks for your feedback.
