One windy night last week, cycling poet Meg Brennan joined me in my home to record the third installment of Rebel Metropolis’s drunken bike-themed podcast.
Topics of discussion involved Portland’s recent Snowpocalype 2014, using bikes as tools of civil disobedience, pedestrian fatalities, the political spectrum of bicycle advocacy, bike shopping at Wal-Mart, why there aren’t cycling commercials in prime time and what groups like People for Bikes could do to change that, and the international phenomenon of Sneckdowns.
We aslo discussed local activist and friend Michael Hernandez‘s recent legal triumph over the Portland Police Bureau. Mike himself will be joining the podcast next week to talk about his arrest, court trial, and the PPB refusing to return his beloved bike ‘Darlene’ to him.
Enjoy the show!
