This week on the program, I talk with Jonathan Bair, board member of Walk Oakland Bike Oakland, about making Oakland a safer, easier city to get around on foot or on bicycle. We also talk a little about Oakland politics, Jonathan's history as a DJ, and his still-growing record collection.
Unlike previous shows, I'm posting this one with all the music. I ended this show on a personal note, which will explain the theme in those music selections. Here's the playlist.
