Alex Dyer: Productive Civil Disobedience

If you spend time around the Wellington CBD, chances are you’ve seen Alex Dyer. He and his big yellow cargo bike are a regular feature in parking spaces around town. He’s been a one-man campaign to raise awareness about the alternatives to cars.
Many people imagine that the future will look much like the present, but with electric cars and windmills. Alex and Lorraine talk about why this can’t be the case.

You’ll hear some traffic noise in this episode – I filtered out much of it after the first few minutes, but this conversation happens on the side of the road for a reason, so it’s only right.
