Committed scooter riders and podcasters

I've had the recent honor of being interviewed by Mark Helgen and his colleagues who make up "Chasing Ghosts. On Scooters. In Bars." Their program is a thoughtful exploration of the kinds of experiences and people one might meet while riding a scooter. Their conversations and points of view are kind of mesmerizing as I listen, wondering how I've missed seeing what they've seen. It's a must listen program for me.
