Pedal Power! Audio Interview With a Pedicab Driver

Underwriting support from:

On a busy night downtown people are out having a good time and enjoying an unusually warm November. The usual car traffic is buzzing throughout downtown now mixed with bicycles converted to taxis. Pedicabs are a fun and green option to get around downtown. On the corner of Monroe and Monroe Center, just outside Rosa Park Circle, we stopped to admire one of these converted bicyles and talk to its operator. Here is that conversation.

I love the idea of the business, so the content of the interview was interesting. I really like that you didn't try to make this more than a recording as well. I think it definitly adds to some stories to hear the real voices. I hope to "hear" more of this in the future! Good stuff!

I liked the simplicity of this audio interview. Interesting information, well presented.

This was a really great story--I think I will have to go have a pedicab tour of GR now!
