CoMotion Podcasts: Bianca Wylie; Zak Accuardi & Erin Hafkenschiel, Rachel Weinberger, and More

CoMotion LA is around the corner on November 14-15 in the Arts District of Los Angeles. This means we’re sprinting to publish the final burst of podcast episodes before the festival. Before I publish the final four, here’s what you’ve missed over the last month or so:

• BlockSidewalk’s and Tech Reset Canada’s Bianca Wylie (above) on the dangers posed by both the public and private sectors when it comes to data collection and aggregation. (Check out her co-edited collection of alternatives to Sidewalk Toronto’s plans.)

•  Erin Hafkenschiel and Zak Accuardi on what went wrong with Nashville’s 2018 transit referendum (above), in which opposition groups successfully stoked fears of gentrification and the Koch Brothers poured money into Facebook ads and dark money groups.

• Rachel Weinberger, senior fellow for transportation at the Regional Plan Association in New York (above), on how to get congestion pricing right in New York.

• Natalia Quintero, program director of the Transit Tech Lab (above), on bringing in the most innovative and cutting-edge technology startups to remake New York’s public transit.

• Yuan Shi, global solution leader for New Mobility at Arcadis (above), about working with cities to bring about equitable micromobility first/last mile solutions.

• Bestmile’s Tony Pino (above) on ways to optimize fleet management.
