E301b – Gerald & Ray Go To Grad School

Gerald Fittipaldi & Ray Atkinson are grad-level students at Portland State University.  They’ve been studying the fine craft of city-building and city-shaping, and worked to start the advocacy group Bike PSU to fill a need they saw for student involvement in their transportation environment.  We talk to them about what they’ve been up to!

Also: Brock got a flat on the way to work, and Aaron got a room.
