I’m in the radio business for one last day today, filling in for Tom Weber on MPR News.
In the first segment at 11, we’ll talk about the Minneapolis Bike Coalition report — which I wrote about here — on biking while black. Guests will be Melody Hoffman, who wrote the report; and Anthony Taylor, a member of the League of American Bicyclists Equity Advisory Council and the Major Taylor Bicycling Club of Minnesota.
In the second segment, Greta Kaul, the data reporter at MinnPost will be by to talk about the amount of outside money flowing into legislative races this year.
