How to Fix Transportation with Secretary Pete Buttigieg Factually! with Adam Conover

    • Comédia

Why is it so hard to get around in America? Why is it so much more expensive to build a mile of transit here than it is in any country? And will we ever be able to break America of its car addiction? United States Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg joins Adam to answer these questions. They cover how countries in Europe laid the foundation for fast and efficient public transportation after World War II while America failed to, how apps like Uber and Lyft are hurting public transportation for private gain, and what the U.S. government’s position is regarding self-driving cars.
