More than 130 years after the first skyscraper came to dominate the North American skyline, Why is the race to the top still as hot as ever? We hear from Anthony Wood, director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat based in Chicago, while the BBC's Gianna Palmer tests her head for heights at the top of the new One World Trade Center building in New York. We also hear from Chinese engineer Daniel Choi of Yuan Da Construction, responsible for building some of the biggest towers in Asia, and Bora Gulan from lift-makers Otis, on the challenges of building lifts for the next generation of super-tall buildings.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
