This summer’s bridge collapse in Minneapolis shook us in a deeper way than other failures of infrastructure. Guest host Julie Burstein talks with structural engineer Guy Nordenson and cultural historian Judith Dupre about why bridges resonate in our collective imagination.

Hi Rob --
Thanks for the catch here -- there was a site-wide upgrade that has thrown our audio around a bit. Sorry for the hassle. We're working on fixing it now.
Meantime, you can listen to the segment as part of the podcast: (it starts at 1:41).

Umm, I'm pretty sure the audio for this is wrong, because this is all about Ethan Hawke, not bridges.

Hello: I'm not savvy enough to post my own photos of my favourite brige, the Millau Viaduct in France, but here is a link:

This is a brige worth driving out of your way! First caught my interest in an exhibition of the works of architect, Norman Foster, who is also the architect of a new pharmacy building on the campus of the University of Toronto.

Spanning an entire valley over the River Tarn in southern France, this structure literally floats in the clouds.

Enjoy listening to the show as an iTunes podcast.
