For our first episode of The Make Memphis Podcast we wanted to talk to Chooch Pickard, a local architect and urban planner who recently ran for City Council. While he did not win his seat, we wanted to get his take on the race and his recommendation for District 5 for the November 19th runoff election. We also spoke to him extensively about many transportation issues that the city faces since he sits on the board of Mata. We got the lowdown on the new trolley busses and some exciting news for bike lovers in Memphis.
The purpose of this podcast is to explore the good, the bad and the ugly of Memphis. We want to highlight what we love but also discuss the things that can be improved. Our goal is to break things down simply and then give a specific call to action so that we can all make more conscience decisions about how to push forward and make Memphis a better place for everyone!
