This week we talk about urban biking with Asian Pacific American leaders in the bike community. We also hear from Alleluia Panis and Cherríe Moraga about Moraga’s new play, New Fire: To Put Things Right Again. See below for more information.
- We kick off the show with an interview RJ Lozada conducted with Alleluia Panis, long-time dancer and arts administrator; and award–winning writer and director, Cherríe Moraga, to talk about healing and coming of age at 52 for Moraga’s own return to the stage with New Fire: To Put Things Right Again.
- Listen to the complete interview with Cherríe Moraga:
- Our expert panel of bikers include Neal Patel, a community planner with the San Francisco Bike Coalition; Susan Yee, board member of Cycles of Change; Phil Segura, owner of RideSFO, a bike shop in San Francisco and organizer of the huge Bike Expo; and Liza Gesuden, co-founder of P.O.K.E.R. Familia, a people of color group ride.
- We’ll also hear segments about SFBC’s Safe Routes to Schools with Jason Serafino-Agar; The Bikery’s night for women, trans, and gender queer folks to work on their bikes called Sugar Belly; and a vox pop from folks who attended last year’s SF Bike Expo.
