A guest stint on London Reconnection’s podcast; weekend changes for 13 lines

By

If you’ve been jonesing for a podcast from me, you’re in luck this week. My friend Nicole Badstuber was in town from London a few weeks ago, and we recorded an edition of London Reconnections’ On Our Line podcast. The podcast is targeted to a London audience, and Nicole and I discussed the current state of transit in New York City. Nothing regular readers hear will come as much of a surprise, but if you’d like to hear my voice for a change and give London Reconnections some love, mosey on over to this page to listen to the podcast. You also can listen via the embedded player below:

I’m still working on bringing back a regular podcast for this site, but that idea is on hold until I can get a new laptop. I expect it to return early next year at this point.
