In Mass Transient, we take a look at the way we move people and things. A little bit history, a little bit politics, and a whole lot nerdy.

Even if it's just a tool you use for your commute, your life is shaped every day by the decisions made on our roads, sidewalks, and tunnels.

So if you've ever asked "Why don't they just connect those two routes?" or "Why can't they make this road wider?" or "Why does this cost so much?" or "If these tunnels could talk, what would they say?"

Then this podcast is definitely for you.

    Episode Notes

    In this episode, I mention Berlin was divided into two main parts. This was done for brevity. Please do note, Berlin was divided into 4 parts, one for each ally. 3 being on the west, and 1 on the east.


    Due to the BVG English website having less detail than the German site, I did have to use some older sources (2014). If you have updated sources or were able to find any errors please email noahtkoch@gmail.com or Tweet me: @noahkoch
