Please continue this after safetrack

I've actually never written a podcast review before now, but I felt like I needed to express how much I enjoy listening to WAMU's Metropocalypse.

As someone very interested in transportation policy I find this podcast very engaging and absolutely fascinating. Guest speakers such as Zachary M. Schrag, Paul Winnefield, and members of congress bring interesting perspectives to the table and supplement the already excellent reporting done by the team.

I listen to six other podcasts and this one has easily become my favorite.
I hope programming will continue after safetrack

One suggestion

I find the podcast interesting and helpful. I would like to suggest, however, that in episodes when you are discussing other topics such as architecture and systems and other cities, you still at least mention what Safe Track closures are in effect at that time. That seems to have fallen by the wayside. Keep up the good work.

Excellent!

I love Metropocolypse. My only complaint is that it is only once a week when metro is disastrous on pretty much a daily basis. Hopefully all of this great reporting will really move metro in the right direction. Thanks WAMU!
