Driving Culture: Why City Planning Matters - EP 101
This episode will be a far reaching discussion about the driving cultures of the USA and Germany. The focus won't be about large American pick up trucks vs. miniature European hatchbacks or even the quality of German cars. Instead, we will talk about the differences between the role of cars in the USA vs. Germany and how this has affected the look and layout of cities in each country. As we "drive down the road", we'll cover: how the fascination and necessity for cars in America develops at an early age, why the combination of residential and commercial spaces in Berlin limits the need to own a car, and the different roles public transportation plays in the US and German cities. Join us, won't you?
