Design and architecture podcasts; smart cars

Radio Station KCRW in Santa Monica, CA offers podcasts of its monthly design and architecture show. Nice of them to share with those of us who don't have radio programs about design in our own towns.

Among the shows is a segment about the smart car, a subject that often comes up when I tell people that I commute to work on a 50cc motor scooter.

What's a smart car? It's "a tiny two-seater so adorable that visiting Americans want to put it in their pockets and bring it home" when they see one in Europe. Read more here. You can buy one in 2006.

I think I saw one of these going down Benjamin Parkway yesterday... It had smartcar written on it and looked like an enclosed motorcycle. Interesting
