Podcast #77 – State Transportation Politics Panel feat. Charlie Zelle

transp-panelThe podcast this week is a recording of the recent Transportation Panel hosted by the Women’s Environmental Network. The panel, which took place at Macalester College a few weeks ago, featured MNDOT Commissioner Charlie Zelle, Representative Connie Bernardy, Shantera Hardy of the non-profit Fresh Energy, and Bethany Winkels, one of the lead organizers for the Move MN coalition. The conversation focused on what to expect from the upcoming legislative session, and featured some interesting perspectives on state transportation politics, particularly once you get into the Q & A. Thanks to The Women’s Environmental Network for letting me tape the panel, and I hope you enjoy the conversation.

Because it’s a long talk (2 hours), I have split the podcast into two parts: the panel talks and the Q & A.
