Pod People

 This week we share another interview from Micromobility Europe - This time it is the timeless interview of Jason Slaughter, creator of the largest urban planning YouTube Channel - Not Just Bikes being interviewed by Julia Thayne DeMourdant from the Rocky Mountain Institute, about why many cities suck, but Dutch cities don’t.  Our host Oliver Bruce has often joked that if you spend enough time talking about Micromobility, you end up falling backwards into discussions about urbanism, space allocation and what makes for great cities. Jason nails why that is in this interview, and being in the Netherlands for this conference we can see what he was referring to. The intersection between transport, vehicles, felt experience and finances are all laid to bear.  This was also released on our YouTube channel that has turned out to be our most popular ever with more than 100,000 views on You Tube.  Specifically they tackle:  The origin of Not Just Bikes and Jason's background Why car dependency creates sprawled suburbs How urban planning and design can determine if a city will suck or not A city that is built for cars is not built for people We need to move away from building car-centric cities, and instead build people-friendly cities with walkable neighbourhoods and good land use. Any micromobility solution needs to be compatible with walking.
