E434 – Darius from Omni: Sharing Stuff



Darius is working with a new way to share your things, and keep them too! Omni started as a storage option for people’s extra stuff, but now is also working to find people who want to rent the objects you think are cool, but don’t use all the time; they’re described as “an on-demand access company for things you don’t use every day, but can’t live without” That margarita mixer & those snowboarding pants just sit unused most of the time, why not put them to work earning money for you and making someone else’s life more interesting, while retaining access whenever you need them?  “Rent what you want now, store what you’ll want later.”  Omni just launched in Portland; Darius breaks it down for us.

Also, Aaron celebrates an anniversary & Brock rents a car.  After the regular segments Brock laments the end of his regular cohosting duties & they both bag on Dave Matthews.

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.

E417 – Chris Talks Autonomous Vehicles



Chris Smith has been a community transportation advocate (in his spare time!) for about 20 years, and thinks a lot about how our streets work.  Who better to explain the coming autonomous vehicle revolution from the perspective of Portland, Oregon?  I, for one, welcome our new overlords!  Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.  How does all of this work, how safe is it, and who’s running this thing, anyways? {redacted}

E407 – No More Freeways with Aaron Brown



Aaron Brown joins us in studio to talk NoMoreFreewaysPDX, an effort he leads to impact policymakers’ decisions through groundswell activism & advocacy for the better good of our communities here in Portland, Oregon.  Is a freeway expansion really a good idea? (hint: it’s not) Is congestion pricing really all that difficult or burdensome? (hint: it’s probably not) Aaron breaks it down for us.

E374 – Biketalk 88.1 & Bikabout



Galen Mook & Jess “DJ Hot Mic” are hosts on Cambridge’s BikeTalk 88.1, a live radio show broadcasting every other Wednesday at 8pm EST on FM & web.  They’ve been visiting Oregon’s prime locations including Bend, Hood River, & Portland.  Small catch: it’s been really smoky here due to some cataclysmic wildfires – they haven’t seen any mountains yet.  Enter Bikabout.com: their friends Megan (who’s been on the show before) and Kyle Ramey got out of dodge for awhile to avoid the smoke from the Eagle Creek Fire, and dropped into the studio as well.  We catch up with them and find out what’s next for the bicycle travel guide website and the people behind it.

(if you missed the BikeTalk 88.1 episodes Brock was on, hear them: in studio on bike fun, and call-in about 2017 Biketown vandalism)

E354 – Ayleen Takes Filmed By Bike On The Road



Filmed By Bike is a Portland cultural institution that has gone from humble beginnings to its present home at the Hollywood Theater – and your town’s most suitable venue!  We chat with festival founder Ayleen Crotty (likely a member of the 5 timers’ club, though we forgot to count) about this year’s events and how this year’s batch of films could play anywhere there is demand for them as she facilitates gatherings with the same content as the flagship event in new cities around the world.  Check out the info on the webpage to get Filmed By Bike booked for your area!  And we are joined by #MascotOtis.

Also: Aaron orders some bike parts and Brock reads the fine print on his credit card’s car rental insurance coverage.
