Talking Headways Podcast: Your Brain on Two Legs
Antonia Malchik’s recent piece in Aeon Magazine, The End of Walking, went viral in urbanist circles, touching on several themes related to our “right to walk.”
In her turn on Talking Headways, Antonia talks about how she became addicted to walking and her experiences walking in Russia, Austria, Upstate New York, and the American West. We also discuss how our brains are intricately connected to our legs and why it’s important for coordination to walk on uneven surfaces at an early age.
Did you know that in states like Montana, drivers on the open range are deemed responsible if they collide with a cow? That’s not how it works when a driver hits someone on a city street. All that and much more on this week’s podcast. Come join us for a walk around the world.
