Cycling and community - a conversation with Chris Carlsson

Hey! It's Brett again from Zen and the Art of Triathlon ( I loved your last podcast and it's commentary on society. I mentioned it on my last podcast and encouraged people to get out on their bikes because "reality isn't what you see on tv while sitting next to your AC". One thing that I noticed that maybe you didn't catch: While you and Chris were talking about today's Do It Yourself mentality, the one example that you didn't give was podcasting. Taking over broadcasting and making the shows you want to make and the public really wants to hear falls right in line with taking back the streets for biking and taking back public lands for gardening.

Awesome show! I've been talking about it with friends for days.
