Streets Ahead


Hospital Parking (+ Bonus Politics)

Season 1, Ep. 12

For Episode 12, we thought we'd go for the lighthearted and totally uncontroversial topic of free hospital parking. Rather than get ourselves embroiled into a row with what seems like the entire population, we thought we'd invite Peter Walker to tell us why free hospital parking is often not a good idea. Peter is The Guardian's Political Correspondent and author of Bike Nation: How Cycling Can Save the World.

Because Peter explained the flaws of free hospital parking so wisely and succinctly, we spent the rest of the podcast talking about the politics of cycling, which we hope you find interesting.

Peter's New book, The Miracle Pill: Why A Sedentary World Is Getting It All Wrong, is out Jan 21:
