Andy Anderson has done a lot of transit riding on Portland’s MAX Light Rail system, enough so that they wrote a book of poetry about the experiences on and around it titled “Hello, My Name Is Andy.” (low supply, but more being printed!) The book is available in a very limited run from Powell’s Books! We also talk more stolen bikes, Aaron’s strange diet, and more!

Also Thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for generously providing our libations, and our generous Patreon donors for underwriting our operating costs!
