Mobility is an essential component to the vibrant, equitable, and sustainable cities of our future. To build this future, we need to do more than invest in technology. We need to invest in the people who will make the hard decisions around transportation, land use, housing, economic development, and other aspects of urban life.
Josh Cohen, National Policy Director at TransLoc, wants to start that conversation by building relationships with and sharing ideas from today’s leaders who are imagining and implementing change. He will profile leaders who are doing the heavy lifting to make our communities better and inspire new ones to supplement them. Together, we’ll build The Movement with the goal of sparking tangible change in our communities.

Must listen for mobility enthusiasts!
As a fellow podcaster, I'm always on the lookout for new mobility podcasts and Josh's show does not disappoint. Especially enjoyed the recent, frank interview with Pete Gould and look forward to many more like that.
One thing I like is that most of the guests are new to me so I enjoy hearing from people who aren't as well known but just as insightful.
Great for community builders and emerging leaders in public sector!
It is really interesting to hear from the wide range of folks Josh has been able to talk with on here and I am always intersted to see who he gets next. Lots of smart people and interesting stories. This is a great podcast for people who are intersted in being part of building the cities of the next generation. Tech is great but this really digs into the "people" side of the equation.
