It’s Time to Rename #DamienTalks

Damien Talks SGV logo

As hopefully all of you know, I’ve been working on a podcast for a year and a half covering livable streets in the San Gabriel Valley. Thanks to the ongoing support of Foothill Transit’s advertising deal, we’ve been able to start planning for the long-term future of the podcast. Because the podcast is already more than a brief interview hosted by me and continues to expand, it’s time to find a name that reflects that larger scope.

So let’s come up with a name that reflects the San Gabriel Valley, reflects our content and reflects the issues we cover : safe streets, transit expansion, open space and transportation networks that work for all users.

We’re reaching out to you, our readers and listeners, to help us come up with a new name for #DamienTalksSGV. This new name will be for our specific podcast on the issues, people, and events specific to the San Gabriel Valley. Leave suggestions in the comments section and we’ll announce a winner sometime next week.

The winning suggestion will win a Streetsblog Swag Pack – t-shirts, shoulder bags, stickers and more!

Thanks for your help, and thanks for listening/reading.
