Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast, Episode 3

9:30 AM PST on November 27, 2013

This week, Jeff and Tanya take on the Atlanta Braves' terrible, no-good, very bad decision to move their stadium to Cobb County, Georgia. We discuss cities that are (and are not) shaped like wedding cakes, and whether that means you need to smoosh your spouse's face in it. Tanya makes a pedestrian-rights argument against high-heeled shoes (and Jeff abstains from taking sides). We parse the differences between "shared streets" -- without marked-out space for cars, bikes, and people on foot -- and vehicular cycling.

In between, we speculate on what DC would look like without height limits, make fun of neighborhood parking bullies, pity the mega-commuters, and most importantly, shame the transit riders who fail to cede their seats to those who need them because they have their heads stuck in Angry Birds.

By the way, if you don't subscribe yet to Jeff's daily headline roundup, The Other Side of the Tracks (also known as The Direct Transfer), you're missing a lot. Sign up here.

And PS -- I promised we would have an iTunes RSS feed available for you by now and we are this close. Soon, I promise.
