Guest host Randy Simes, Headline writer for the Streetsblog Ohio Network Blog and owner of, joins me from South Korea to give his thoughts on his current home in the Gangnam district of Seoul and his previous one in Atlanta.  We cover Keith Parker’s turnaround of Atlanta’s transit agency MARTA, talk about the belt line and the types of people that won’t leave the cozy boundary it creates,  and Randy shares the best place to get southern hospitality in town.


From there we swerve from a discussion about Al Gore’s $90T plan to remake cities without cars into a chat about America’s crumbling infrastructure.  Or splintering.  Depends on what material the pipes are made from. 


And for the final few minutes there is a celebration of Denver’s 10 year anniversary of the Fastracks vote.  Regionalism and light rail on freight rights-of-way is debated and the locals might know what Randy means when he mentions Biker Jim.  



All that and more on this week’s Talking Headway Podcast
