In this episode of the Part-Time Show, Dr Kapil Amarasinghe explores the idea of social mobility being linked to physical mobility and the idea that public transport networks function in and serve a similar purpose to social media networks by enabling the flow of people and ideas.
He makes the argument, based broadly on the UK model, that public transport should be free (or significantly less expensive) and how this would improve the economy and culture whilst helping to combat the isolationism that is enabled by many social networks.
"How are you supposed to know anything about what life really is if you're not listening to anyone?"
