Transportation is such an underrated and typically unsexy topic, but you’re wrong. We like whining about traffic and leaving it behind with us at the watercooler, but, in reality, evolving how we move will make us a better species. I think we’ve reached a tipping point where converging tech is going to let us take the hacksaw to our traditional transportation infrastructure. We’ll talk to established leaders in transportation, some trail-blazing pioneers and policymakers and pundits who are all leading the charge and looking to innovate how we move – at very least they’re taking a hard, curious and revealing look at what I call the most important issue we can all do something about. The Next Mile Podcast - presented by Beam Imagination - because the future of how we move could define what types of lives we lead.

Placing one foot in front of the other can take us pretty far. Before we had cars, before getting from Point A to Point B could be done conveniently behind a wheel, a lot of people walked.

Solving the Rubik's cube of travel can shape healthier lives, more connected communities and repair the chaos we've created in the world. How do I know?
