Does It Make Sense To Tear Out Downtown Dallas Highways?

That’s one of the questions I discuss with urban planner/Tottenham Hotspurs fan Patrick Kennedy, aka WalkableDFW. Since Jim was somewhere making Tim’s head explode, I tried to run the little KNON show he usually pilots, with varying degrees of success. (I’m fine at the interviewing; the pledge-driving, not so much.) The highlights:

  • Patrick’s well-reasoned arguments as to why we should tear out I-345.
  • My failed joke to start off the show.
  • Wylie H.’s Bane voice for two segments!
  • Me bullying Wylie H. into making a pledge. (Which he did!)
  • Discussion about how much easier it is to take DART busses these days.
  • Watch me take a piece of ice in my mouth, realize I can’t crunch it on-air, take it back out of my mouth, and drop it into my cup.
  • Patrick reminding me I owe him a beer from a bet I lost. (Still haven’t paid.)
  • A discussion of what young people want from their cities, which I know because I’m young at heart.

    Still waiting for a podcast. Not dealing with this video.

  • WalkableDFW

    “Tottenham HotspurS” I can’t believe I just read that from a Spurs fan, aka the Tottenham Hotspur, no less.

  • Wes Mantooth

    Maybe he wasn’t a fan until he saw this Jason Sudeikis video about the squad:

  • Bushwood Smithie

    Perhaps you should have also had a guest with an above-room-temperature IQ and a firmer grasp on reality in order to provide a counterpoint.

  • Eric Celeste

    Been a fan for four years. Just not a good typer. Fast, not good. Also: Is the video showing up still? It was, now it’s not on my browser. So confused.

  • Tom Cochrane

    Next time ask Patrick a question, then immediately cut him off with the chorus to “Life is a Highway.” Repeat till his head explodes. I would watch that.

    Yeah Eric … Pledge Drive is a pain in the side of all of us DJ’s.. But, it’s a necessary evil…. And you got Wylie to pledge.. good on ya
