Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

The Talking Headways podcast is a weekly podcast about transportation and urban design.

This week on Mondays we're again Han Solo, but don't let that stop you from listening in to all the news from the last couple of weeks! We chat about the 15 Minute City conspiracy, why the American Association of Railroads is against electrification, and Wales' climate action on roads.
