Author Dan Pink argues that we are moving from the Information Age to the Conceptual Age, where skills like design and storytelling and play are becoming paramount. He lays out his case in his new book, "A Whole New Mind." Dan discusses why Abundance, Asia and Automation will force major changes in how we work.

Architect and planner Andres Duany has been promoting major changes in how we live for 20 years. He is one of the founders of the New Urbanism movement and continues to be one of its principal thinkers and drivers. Andres will provide a report on the status of the movement and plans for the future.

Listen live on the Web Saturdays at 8 a.m central and Sundays at noon central. Or listen to archived shows online anytime.

Thanks to Chris Steins
