Talking Headways Podcast: Get Off My Lawn

Posted By Tanya Snyder On December 12, 2013 @ 11:39 am In Buses,Cincinnati,Podcast,San Francisco,Streetcars,Transit,Urban Design | 3 Comments

Jeff Wood and I talk about the news of the week that most tickled us or burned us — the BBC’s exposé of anti-social urban design features [1] intended to repel people, San Francisco’s social tensions [2] over the Google bus, and the decision by Cincinnati’s new mayor and City Council to “pause” construction [3] of the streetcar. (Update: The streetcar might be salvaged [4]!)

Meanwhile, I wax nostalgic for public space in Havana and Jeff laments slow progress on San Francisco’s Geary Boulevard BRT.

This will be our last podcast of 2013. Have a Happy New Year and we’ll see you in January!
