Well done free-flowing conversation for urbanist nerds

Martin and Frank are great hosts and do good job of balancing having an outline to guide the conversation but allowing it to be free-flowing and stray just a bit to make it interesting and feel natural. The podcast goes into way more depth than the blog posts often do and its fun to be able to consume my transit nerdery while walking or on the bus instead of having to be in front of a computer.

A vital tool to keeu updated on transit

As a regular transit user, very grateful for Seattle Transit Blog in the first place. Second, having a podcast means that now the Seattle Transit Blog staff & management can dialogue and provide color & unique context to transit news. Three, the podcast is very helpful in keeping me informed when I don't have time to read...

Informative podcast

Good listen if you live in Seattle and want to better understand the constraints that transit agencies are under.
