Why are investors pouring so much cash into urban startups? On this first episode of Technopolis, hosts Molly Turner and Jim Kapsis follow the money behind the explosion in urban tech.

They also talk with Warren Logan, Senior Transportation Planner at the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, about how cities cope with all the disruption in the epicenter of venture-backed tech.
