E297 – Meg Keys: Radio & Redevelopments

Meg Keys from the KBOO Bike Show, and, you know, Portland.  As well as New York, Chicago, and other towns.  We chat bicycling and culture in hip cities, and how she thinks about change, redevelopment and gentrification.  We also got a bike touring story out of her!
