Audio

Tom Fudge : When you stop to think abut it, it’s not surprising to hear that a lot of Americans don’t own cars. But most of us figure that those people are the unfortunate folks who are unable to own or drive cars. They’re too young. They’re too old. Or they’re too poor to afford one.

Guests
  • Chris Michels, salesman and bicycle mechanic at Adams Avenue Bicycles. 
  • Paul Blackburn , former director of Move-San Diego and chairman of the energy subcommittee of the San Diego Sierra Club.
