Damien Talks Episode 3: Oakland’s Uber Advocate Chris Kidd

9:41 AM PDT on May 21, 2015

Welcome to the third episode of Damien Talks, our podcast about the people and politics behind the Livable Streets Movement throughout California. Our first month broadcasting coincides with Bike Month, so we’ve been working up the coast, talking to bike advocates throughout the state.

This week, Damien Talks with Chris Kidd, a board member with CalBike and Walk Oakland Bike Oakland. When he’s not being one of the state’s leading advocates, he has a day job with Planning super group Alta Planning and Design. Longtime readers of Streetsblog Los Angeles may also remember Chris as the first editor of the LADOT Bike Blog.

This week’s Damien Talks is taking part in a special week devoted to looking at how a new Department of Transportation could change things in Oakland.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.

Thanks for listening. You can download the episode at the Damien Talks homepage on Linksyn.
