What makes a city special? Is it the towering architecture near your workplace? Is it the street corner where you catch the bus? How do you categorize the spaces and places that remind you of community both past and present?


We spoke with journalists from The Guardian, a UK-based newspaper, about their project Guardian Atlanta Week. They spent a week in the city exploring the special qualities that define place.

 "On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott speaks with writers and editors from Guardian Cities.

Chris Michael is the editor of Guardian Cities, a project from the newspaper exploring city identities around the world. We also heard from Tash Reith-Banks, a production editor for Guardian Cities, and Mark Oliver, the Guardian US special projects editor. Read more about their week in Atlanta here.
