Episode 8 | These Roads Only Go So Many Places
We’re hitting the road for the summer– but before we do, we’re taking you on a ride.
First, we go on an imaginary cab ride. Then, we get to the bottom of Brooklyn’s pothole problem. Next, we go deep underground to find out what’s happening with the New York City Subway. And finally, we head out west, and hit some turbulence on the way back.
If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there. And getting there is half the fun in Brooklyn, USA.
Brooklyn, USA is produced by Sachar Mathias and Emily Boghossian.
"Rideshare Ride Along" was produced by Josh Rollin, written and directed by Calvin Kasulke, and was performed by Utkarsh Rajawat, Connor Carson, Greg Schultz, Luz Ozuna, Romana Sow-tus, and Nell Muldoon.
Thanks to Mark Pagan for giving us yet another reason to never ride the subway. Mark hosts a podcast called Other Men Need Help and runs our sister network, Brooklyn Free Speech Radio– check them out.
Thanks to Brian Vines for hitting those potholes so we didn’t have to. You can follow Brian as he goes into the field, and inside the issues that matter on his BRIC TV Series, "Going In With Brian Vines" : https://bit.ly/2sesJ8k
Thanks to Thyra Heder for dragging us out into the desert and introducing us to Eileen. Thyra is chronicling her road trip in a webcomic called Across and Back for Spiral Bound – the art and illustration section of Medium.
Thanks to Lewis Carroll and George Harrison for the words of wisdom. This episode featured music from the de Wolfe music library and (like some of the best journeys) started on the B38 bus.
