The domination of the car, roads and carbon emissions is a worldwide problem. Active transport, based on walking and cycling, is increasingly seen as a solution. The benefits go way beyond individual health. This series of podcasts features transport planners, traffic engineers, community artists, car designers and public health researchers, arguing the economic, business, environmental, public and community health reasons to step away from the car. They were all speakers at the 2019 Australian Walking and Cycling Conference, where the interviews were recorded. Most of them drive cars, and walk, and cycle and catch public transport. So do the interviewer/producers Nicky Page and Suzanne Reece, from Radio Adelaide.
