ABOUT THE SERIES
The Trip Diary is an original Below the Radar podcast series examining how we move through urban spaces. SFU Urban Studies alum and host Steve Tornes invites transportation enthusiasts and policymakers into conversation about the social and political factors that impact how transportation policy plays out on the ground.
Over the course of this series, we will explore how different commute modes — walking, cycling, transiting, driving — impact daily life and why we need to think about transportation in our urban design.
The Trip Diary and Below the Radar are recorded on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. These conversations draw from data and lived experiences related to moving through urban spaces on these lands and beyond.
Each episode of The Trip Diary is timed to the duration of a different commute across the Metro Vancouver region. We hope you’ll listen along with your own commute as we investigate and reflect upon the future of moving through cities.
