Former design student hosting new
podcast series about suburbia’s effects


A former student from Texas A&M’s College of Architecture is hosting the “American Dream Survival Guide,” a new series of podcasts available on iTunes that investigage the challenges of the built American landscape and their solutions.

“The series introduces the reality of our building practices and their effects on sustainability and economic prosperity as well as wellness and lifestyle,” said David Sellers, an international construction consultant and field engineer who earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design degree at Texas A&M in 2002.

The first episode features interviews from Lars Lerup, former dean of the College of Architecture at Rice University, as well as Peter Calthorpe, founder of New Urbanism and an acclaimed architect and urban planner. 

“I’ve put the series together for students and non-academics alike,” said Sellers. “It’s meant to be informative and entertaining, utilizing the media and social networking of our time.”
