29: Matthew Crawford – Taking Back Control of The Road

In this episode Richard Kilgarriff meets the philosopher/mechanic Matthew Crawford, who sees freedom and democracy Рreflected in the twin headlights of  travel and technology  Рthreatened by automation and bureaucracy.
” What we are talking about is remaking the infrastructure, not just of moving about, but of everything that goes on in a city, and handing it over to a cartel of tech firms – It’s quite possible they will make the trains run on time but at the cost of our political sovereignty over our collective life together.”
