Welcome to Spacing Radio’s pilot show. In our first podcast our host David Michael Lamb jumps right into the thick of things with a sit-down interview with former London mayor Ken Livingstone. In early 2003, Red Ken ushered in a congestion charge for anyone driving into the core of London. It was a radical idea but something London needed to implement to remain a globally competitive city. What can Toronto and other cities learn from London’s experience? Livingstone gives us his insight.
You’ll also hear the opinions of regular Torontonians on road pricing. Spacing publisher Matthew Blackett will drop by to fill you in on why Spacing has started a podcast show and what to expect in the upcoming issue of the magazine. And what would a radio show be like without music? Our featured Toronto band is The Bicycles.
