This is it! The last #DamienTalks of 2016. As is traditional for unoriginal talk hosts, we're hosting an "end of the year" podcast where four local experts weigh in on what was the biggest story of 2016 and what will be the biggest story of 2017.

Our guests include the closest thing a bi-weekly podcast has to regulars, David Diaz and Wes Reutimann with Bike SGV, South Pasadena Mayor Mike Cacciotti and Transit Coalition executive director Bart Reed. As a bonus, Bart and I spend the first minute and a half of his interview talking about how my kids enjoy riding on trains.

Currently, all the Streetsblogs are doing their end of the year fundraising drives. If you want to continue to support this podcast, Streetsblog L.A. and the work we do, please click here and get started on your donation.

This week, #DamienTalks with Joe Linton, the editor of Streetsblog Los Angeles. Joe has overseen our efforts to expand our coverage outside of the boundries of the City of Los Angeles into the San Gabriel Valley in 2016. As a result, he has a lot to say when asked if he has any opinions on what the biggest story was of 2016, and what the biggest story will be in the next calendar year.

This is our second to last podcast of the year, but if you are taking an early trip to visit loved ones during the holidays, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support of this podcast and Streetsblog.

This week, #DamienTalks with David Diaz with DayOne and the San Gabriel Valley Bicycle Coalition about the Mulhall Bike Park that is under construction in El Monte. The Bike Park is literally designed to do exactly what it says: be a space for people who ride bicycle to practice their skills in a closed, safe setting.

This project is truly community driven, being led by community organizations, being next to a community center, and being in a community park. In fact, it's even being community built. The second of two Mulholland Bike Park Build Days is this Sunday. (Facebook Event) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you don't know where the park is, you can find it on most mapping program and apps at 10900 Mulhall Street in El Monte.

A quick programming note...we'll be wrapping up our 2017 schedule with a pair of "look ahead, look back" podcasts over the next couple of weeks. Currently, all the Streetsblogs are doing their end of the year fundraising drives.
