A huge, huge thanks to Erica C. Barnett for her graciousness and inclusion of all sides of this thorny issue in detail. I feel excited and honoured to be interviewed along side my wonderful bus driver buds, Sam, Audrey and Jeremy; Erica is also a friend of mine from our shared interests in transit and urbanism in Seattle; if you don’t already know it, check out her blog here.
Doing press like this isn’t always a collaboration between friends, but that’s exactly what this one felt like. Please enjoy!
Check out the below for more of Nathan’s thoughts on COVID-19:
- On a local doctor friend’s medical breakthrough, which could save a lot of lives (now updated with med protocol, sources, interview, contact and more)
- On being misquoted in right-wing media after the lovely NPR interview below;
- NPR: KUOW: The Friendly Bus Driver in Socially Distant Times (scroll down for my 11-minute segment)
- Slate: Coronavirus Diaries: I’m a Bus Driver in Seattle, but No One’s Riding
- Urging Mr. Inslee to lock the city down (he would do so the day after this post)
- And, if you missed it, my own thoughts by way of a Bus Driver Appreciation Day post on drivers during the time of the virus!
