Talking Headways Podcast: Change in the Mile High City

David Sachs of Streetsblog Denver joins the podcast this week to discuss the big transportation projects and advocacy initiatives happening in the city, from the I-70 highway expansion boondoggle to the possibility of a new transportation department and the rethinking of the 16th Street transit mall.

The first YIMBY conference was recently held in nearby Boulder, and we discuss regional growth and whether Denver has adjusted well to its rapidly increasing population. And finally, we talk about the differing opinions about Denver's newly completed airport rail line, and the longest, wickedest (as in awesome) street in America, which happens to be in Denver.
