Introducing: Damien Talks Podcast

Starting this Wednesday, Streetsblog California will be hosting a weekly podcast hosted by yours truly, entitled Damien Talks. The name is a play off my twitter handle.

Every week I’ll be talking to a different Californian about the Livable Streets issues of the day. Think of it as a less-well-produced, California-centric version of Talking Headways. Each episode will run for about 15 minutes a broadcast.

Sometimes we’ll announce interviews ahead of time to solicit questions from readers. You might also see episodes Damien Talks pop up on Streetsblog Los Angeles, LongBeachize, and Santa Monica Next.

We’re going to start easy. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be celebrating Bike Month with four of the leading lights in our bicycle advocacy community throughout California: Sam Ollinger in San Diego, Marven Norman in the Inland Empire, Chris Kidd in the East Bay, and Jim Brown in Sacramento.

But June is wide open. If you have any ideas leave them in the comments section, drop me a line at Twitter, or email damien@streetsblog.org.
