Welcome to our all-California, all-the-time episode of the Talking Headways podcast.
We start with a statewide debate over whether $60,000+ Teslas should qualify for tax breaks  — or whether any electric vehicles should get tax breaks. Then on to the conversation about how California’s cap-and-trade dollars should be spent. One proposal , from the State Senate leader, would spend it on affordable housing, sustainable communities, transit, and high-speed rail. And then we zoom in on Fresno, where one blogger wonders why the political threat to BRT  didn’t get as much attention as it did in Nashville .
And, side note: The giveaway for our spring pledge drive has changed since we recorded this podcast. Now, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a package of zines and books  by feminist bike activist and writer Elly Blue . Thanks for your donation !
