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.

Also thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for generously providing our libations, and our generous Patreon donors for underwriting our operating costs!

E397 – Andy Writes on Transit



Andy Anderson has done a lot of transit riding on Portland’s MAX Light Rail system, enough so that they wrote a book of poetry about the experiences on and around it titled “Hello, My Name Is Andy.” (low supply, but more being printed!)  The book is available in a very limited run from Powell’s Books!  We also talk more stolen bikes, Aaron’s strange diet, and more!

E360 – Bryce & Bean Can Take The Heat



Bryce & Bean are relatively new transplants to Portland, but they’re probably taking the summer temperatures better than we are.  Living in Tucson, Arizona gave them plenty of experience in beating the heat and riding bikes in it.  Bryce works for Velo Cult as one of their shop staff after having a “come to bicycles” moment, and Bean spent a lot of time in a bakery with the cool bike kids of the Southwest. We talk about life there and here, and what’s next for the two of them.

Also: Brock did the WNBR, and Aaron did not, no buts about it. Aaron built 2 bikes in one day.
