Damien Talks Episode 1: Bike SD’s Sam Ollinger

11:23 AM PDT on May 6, 2015

Welcome to the first episode of Damien Talks, a podcast series for Streetsblog Los Angeles, Streetsblog California, LongBeachize and Santa Monica Next. In each episode, I’ll be talking to someone from the transportation scene from somewhere in California.

Sam Ollinger.

I’ll try to provide minimal commentary so that the interviews speak for themselves.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.

For our first episode, I talk over the phone with San Diego’s Sam Ollinger, the executive director of Bike SD. Bike SD started as a news blog about five years ago and became an official advocacy group just a couple of years ago. Last year, they were honored for excellence in advocacy by the League of American Bicyclists. You can catch up on Bike SD at BikeSD.org and follow Sam at Twitter @ollingers.

Thanks for listening. You can download the episode at the Damien Talks homepage on Linksyn. We'll have iTunes subscriptions set up by our next broadcast.
