Podcast: In the Shed – Ep 11

Eva Frazier and I are back with another episode of “In The Shed.” This episode was recorded earlier today in the BikePortland Shed as unseasonably warm weather beckoned us outdoors.

As usual, we had a really great chat about a wide range of stuff.

Thanks to Brock Dittus of Sprocket Podcast fame for our fantastic theme music. Listen in the player above or wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for listening!

Joanthan, since you asked the questions, here are answers:

  • Mama Charis = a funky mini oma fiets city shopping bikes for moms in Japan (I had one in at school…abandoned and rehomed for intra campus trips); and
  • ‘Bike More at PIR’…I would say NOPE as it is still CoP/ Parks greeen-washing car racing with its noise pollution + exhaust emissions + brake / fuel runoff into adjoining neighborhoods, unless biking (velodrome) replaces ICE vehicle racing 100% there.

Id love to hear about more bike advocacy next time? How exactly does one get a meeting with a city commissioner? What’s the plan going in? A real how does the sausage get made…
Great job as always!

If you own a hotel or a downtown building, it is really easy- just pick up the phone and they will take your call. Everyone else is graciously provided an canned response. These guys act like oligarchs, and our commissioners oblige them!
