Michael Hobbes, a journalist and podcast host known for his work on Maintenance Phase and You’re Wrong About, joined The War on Cars for episode 72 to discuss what bikelash has in common with moral panics. In this short bonus episode, hear a part of our conversation that was left on the cutting room floor.
