Transportation Radio Podcast Sponsorship Opportunities

While I've been doing Transportation Radio interviews for a few years, just last month I started Transportation Radio podcast programs. The first series, sponsored by Econolite, has featured ITS organizations. As you may know my background includes decades working in radio so the opportunity to combine my transportation journalism with radio-like programs is a great opportunity to serve the transportation community in a unique way.

I'd like to expand the podcast episodes to other transportation topics and if you're interested in sponsoring a series or just an individual episode, please let me know. I'm also interested in other ways I could partner with companies or organizations. In the meantime, I hope you'll give a listen to my shows featuring ITS California and ERTICO - ITS Europe. You'll hear the production and the commercial. You can contact me at Thanks!

Friday Bonus
Signs and the threat of fines sometimes aren't enough to discourage people from illegally using spots reserved for the handicapped. Perhaps this Russian effort will have an impact.
