Joe Lindsey eBikes Better Than Cars?

The Not Old Better Show, Author Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Art of Living Interview Series on radio and podcast.  I’m Paul Vogelzang, and today’s show is brought to you by StartMail.comPrivate email you can trust.   We have a fantastic interview and subject today with our guest, freelance writer, from Bicycling Magazine, Joe LIndsey whom I’ll introduce in just a moment.

But quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 725th episode when we spoke with Smithsonian Associate Craig Nelson reading from his new book, ‘V Is For Victory.’ Craig Nelson shares with us how FDR’s skillful leadership turned a nation wary of war into an arsenal of democracy ready to take on the dangers of another world war. Craig Nelson will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates coming up. Two weeks ago I spoke with author Scott Shea about John Phillips, Denny Doherty, Michelle Phillips, and “Mama Cass” Elliot,or as they were collectively known, The Mamas and The Papas, who became standard-bearers for California counterculture after their amazing song, ‘California Dreamin.’ Scott Shea has written the new book All the Leaves Are Brown. Excellent subjects for our Not Old Better Show audience.

Writer, author, storyteller,  Joe Lindsey is our guest today on  The Not Old Better Show, Art of Living Interview Series on radio and podcast. From Joe Lindsey’s website, Joe loves research and reporting. Joe Lindsey loves talking with people and learning about their lives and work, and most of all, Joe LIndsey loves telling stories for an audience on NPR, ESPN, and Bicycling Magazine, which is where I first became acquainted with Joe Lindsey.  Joe Lindsey has written his latest piece, entitled UGH. I’M IN THE CAR AGAIN.  The Best Bike Is One That Gets You Out of Your Car

As you all know, I’ve been a long time bike rider, and recently switched to an eBike from Lectric eBikes.  I love my eBike, and I’ve done a couple other editorial shows, like this one about the virtues of eBike riding.  When I first read Joe’s article, I found Joe to say what I’ve been tyrying to say about eBikes much better than I ever could.

Joe and I will talk about how eBikes promise of better ecology, better economy, and better all-around fun, and you’ll hear Joe explain the role e-bikes play in improving public health and well-being and how this aspect can be emphasized to promote cycling over car usage.  Joe writes about this subject in a very balanced manner…no fluff, just facts, and I appreciated our time together.  I’m far from alone on this subject.
