Then, an interview with Joe Deloss, founder and head fryer of Hot Chicken Takeover (currently the reigning  Best Food Truck in Columbus), who talks a bit about chicken but primarily focuses on his human resources model.

4: Carless in Columbus

People like the idea of living without a car. Why don’t they? This week’s episode has it’s foundation in an interview Cleve Ricksecker, the executive director of the two Downtown Special Improvement Districts (SID). We discuss SIDs, commuter culture in Columbus, and have a frank discussion about the race and class lines here. Cleve’s passion for a transit-based lifestyle inspired us to also sit-down with two carless Columbusites: Jacob Taylor and Zach Henkel.
