E507 – Cascadian Courier Collective



Ponce Christie of Cascadia Courrier Collective spends some time with us in our virtual studio (look how big it is inside!) discussing food delivery and how to be a smart bicyclist in Portland’s traffic.  Get your local orders filled in town using their system at pdxccc.com and stop being hungry.  If you live outside of town, network with your local bicycle couriers, or start your own delivery business. 🙂

Thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going! 

Also Guthrie covers a song, “Wrote And The Writ” by Johnny Flynn on his ukelele.

E505 – Chris For Metro!



Chris Smith is a favorite repeat guest, and while we know he’s an incredibly smart guy, the general public is about to learn how much he can help the Portland region!  Chris is tossing his hat into the ring in the upcoming May election for Metro Councilor in the regional government that helps to regulate transportation, housing, and environmental matter, among other things. There are some times when it feels good to be an independent platform, and we are excited to endorse him as the best choice for the job.  Listen to our chat with him here, read the great recent BikePortland article about his campaign, and visit chrisformetro.com to dive into supporting him!
