The New Republic’s Alex Pareene joined us for Episode 78, “311 is a Joke,” and we had a lot of fun. We chatted about the battle for scarce street space in the big city and the role that municipal government plays (and doesn’t play) in sorting it all out (or not). As often happens when we get going in the studio, our conversation with Alex ran long and some good stuff didn’t make it into the final cut. In this bonus episode, we learn about Alex’s step-dad Chuck from North Dakota and hear from New York City’s now-former Mayor Bill de Blasio as he attempts to destroy a bunch of dirt bikes on Staten Island.
