21 mins | Dec 20, 2021

Today's episode from 20th December 2021. It's our final episode of the year, but we'll be back on Monday 10th January 2022. First this morning: We take a look at so-called "dark stores", which puts customer convenience first, but at what cost? We hear from two city planning experts on why they're worried about the retail landscape. Then later, we've got four ways you can help yourself these holidays and start the new year refreshed. Many different and important issues are at play in this article on the urbanization of 15-minute delivery. Mini-warehouses dubbed “dark stores” are quietly taking over urban retail space. From Bloomberg CityLab, Lev Kushner and Greg Lindsay warn that if they are left unregulated, the insatiable demand for faster delivery will only hasten the erosion of community life. Between end-of-year deadlines, family obligations and parties, it’s easy to get caught up in the holiday season. But no matter what holiday pressures exist in your schedule, you can still manage stress, get work done and protect your long-term mental health goals. From Fast Company, Mark Debus explains how you can prioritize yourself in the holidays. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
