Yesterday I joined Which Way, LA? with Warren Olney (Ahhh, Warren Olney. His show falls under the “reasons I love public radio” umbrella). We were together to talk about Waze, the crowd-sourced traffic app.
A recent AP report focused on how the app is changing traffic in Los Angeles and talked to residents who are objecting to more cars in their neighborhood. From AP: 
When word spread that the explosively popular new smartphone …

Matt Holzman needs you to call and pledge!

Can you imagine a day where KCRW only had a pledge drive that lasted for 4 days? And within those 4 days, can you imagine if we didn’t interrupt every KCRW program asking for your support? Instead, only reaching out to you during three shows – as – opposed to all of eternity? I know, sound too good to be true, right?
Well my friends …

Yes, apparently there could be and you don’t even get to see it. Don’t like. Eric Roy, one of our newsmen here at KCRW reported on this story last week.

Monday night was a great night. I am passionate about traffic. I had the pleasure of moderating a panel of some of the movers and shakers of Los Angeles’ transportation. About what? LA traffic of course and what the heck we are gonna do about getting it to move faster? A full house and then some, a wonderfully curious and engaging audience. Did you …

Are you thinking about getting a dog? Yes? From where? I love dogs. They make life better. How about adopting from the pound? Some people make the assumption that something will be wrong with a dog from an animal shelter. Afraid that the dogs are either too old and sick or that they can’t be trained and thinking that is probably why Fido was …

I’m not sure who is worse, the perpetrator or the witness that refuses to act like a good citizen. We know why the creep that did the crime isn’t turning himself in…he/she doesn’t want to get in trouble. But why won’t witnesses step forward? Does this mean they are a cowards, or perhaps they think their time/life is more valuable than another? Is it the inconvenience? Afraid? Don’t have the time? Don’t like getting involved? Is it because they think it’s none of their business? Oh contraire mon frère/cheri. This is not just a cyclists issue. It’s not just a pedestrian issue.It’s not just a car-on-car issue.
This is a people issue and affects all of us. Pull together peeps, let’s do this!
