E199d – Sarah Mirk’s Stolen Bike

Sarah Mirk of the Portland Mercury, Bitch Media & the Popaganda podcast had a bike she loved. Then it got stolen.  What happened next… may surprise you.  A man without a home said he had a “funny story” about the bike that “looks well loved.” A park meetup was where she met a friendly homeless guy who told me, “Your bike is sweet. It hauls ass.”  Listen in for the rest of the story and hear Sarah’s precautions and advice for those with stolen bikes.

Also: e200 live show! (with live streaming), why Aaron doesn’t have friends, Brock gets the tandem restored, the retort to close pass contest wraps up.
