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.

1: Issue One

For our inaugural episode we’ve decided to do a deep dive on Issue One, the ballot measure to add ward representation to City Council. We sat down with representatives on both sides of the issue. First up, Whitney Smith, co-chair of Represent Columbus, the grassroots organization that wrote, gathered signatures for, and is introducing the charter amendment petition. Then, we speak with Bryan Clark, the campaign manager for One Columbus, the group formed in opposition to the amendment.
